Weekly College Football Update
Week 2

Highlights of notable Maxwell Award candidates
for the week ending Sept. 12  
   
Who’s Hot  

WR Jonathan Adams, Arkansas State  

The abbreviated September slate is providing a bigger spotlight to the Sun Belt Conference… and the league is capitalizing on it. The Red Wolves went into Manhattan and shocked Kansas State, 35-31, for just their second-ever win over a Power 5 opponent. Adams led the way with three TD catches, including a spectacular one-handed grab and the game-winner with 38 seconds left.

QB Micale Cunningham, Louisville

Cunningham has picked up where he left off in 2019. And that’s going to make for some exciting times this fall in Louisville. There are still some kinks and a little rust, but the junior still accounted for 367 total yards and four scores in Saturday’s 35-21 win over a dangerous Western Kentucky squad. Cunningham’s 70-yard scoring strike to Dez Fitzpatrick put the game out of reach in the third quarter.

QB Sam Ehlinger, Texas 

UTEP was on the other side of the ball, so no one should get too carried away after one weekend. But the Longhorn passing game was potent in Saturday’s 59-3 rout, despite using a slew of new and young receivers. Chemistry was no problem for Ehlinger, who completed 25-of-33 for 426 yards and five touchdown passes to five different teammates.

The development of Derrick Rose

May 7th, 2011 by Brandon Pemberton | 2 Comments | Filed in Basketball, General, NBA, NCAA, Sixers

In just his 3rd season, Derrick Rose has become the league’s MVP and a top 3 player. How soon will he be lifting the NBA championship trophy?

By Brandon Pemberton

Last night I watched Derrick Rose scorch the Atlanta Hawks for 44 points, 7 assists, and 5 rebounds leading the Chicago Bulls to a 99-82 victory over the Atlanta Hawks in game 3 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals. In his 3rd season, Rose has become the league’s MVP, a legit superstar, and a top 3 player in the NBA. I remember when he was coming out of school, there were plenty of doubters and plenty thought Micheal Beasley would be the better pro.

I remember watching Derrick Rose play for the first time as a freshmen at Memphis and being impressed with his combo of size, speed, strength, and ability to finish in traffic while taking on contact. I thought after the first ten or so games that he is the top pro prospect in college, while others thought it was Micheal Beasley. I recall debating in barber shops and on facebook about who should go number one in the draft and people saying “well he can’t shoot” or he’s not a true point guard.
