While everybodyand theirmother is ripping on ESPN’s “Follow the Cosbys” segment — rightfully so, I might add — what about Quan Cosby? He had to endure the reality of not being drafted like he was some kind of sideshow, all because he shares a last name with an entertainer who is evidently trying to remain relevant in the eyes of the sports world.
Sorry, ESPN, but that was excruciatingly mundane. Perhaps next time, you’ll align yourself with somebody who might actually get drafted — you know, the whole reason for your existence this past weekend?
As for Cosby (the younger), he was signed by the Cincinnati Bengals as a free agent. I suppose some would consider that to be adding insult to irrelevance, but hey, at least the Bengals showed signs of acting like a professional football organization during the draft.
Now that’s the way you end your collegiate career: By scoring the game-winning touchdown that catapults your team to a Fiesta Bowl victory. Not only that, but your touchdown puts Texas in the thick of the National Championship decision and it goes a long way towards relieving any hard feelings leftover from the Michael Crabtree incident.
Mack Brown’s big win over Oklahoma came with an added bonus, or a curse, depending on your point of view: Texas is now the number one team in the land. Some folks in Alabama aren’t sure about that particular decision considering Texas leapfrogged a bye-week Tide to secure the number one spot. Nevertheless, Texas is now in charge of wearing the target, which comes under fire next Saturday when the Longhorns play Missouri on Saturday night.
