KORCEK'S CORNER: Start the Heisman hype
Relevant observations, pertinent notes, questions, minutiae and Huskie Trivial Pursuit from your local, retired sports information director:
Opinion No. 1: Jordan Lynch for Heisman? Why not? The kid, his phenomenal numbers and the Northern Illinois program all deserve it. Just because some snarky Southeast or Big 12 conference media know-it-alls cannot spell M-A-C? Isn’t America the land of opportunity? How can you not admire Lynch’s blue collar, I’m-not-running-out-of-bounds approach to the game?
To be honest, I’m stunned the Chicago Tribune continues to list West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith every Saturday morning in its “Heisman Watch” section, particularly when the Trib admits “after a hot start, the Mountaineers and Smith have come crashing down to Earth.” You already have heard my mid-majors-get-no-respect shtick too many times. My advice: Cover people and things that are newsworthy and hot. That’s Jordan Lynch (and the Huskies).
