Quarterback controversy? What quarterback controversy?

Quarterback controversy? What quarterback controversy? I’m no University of Tennessee football fan, but after watching the just-completed, 48-hour-delayed LSU-Tennessee football game, I have decided to be a fan of Rick Clausen.

A classic sports cliché played-out tonight — the unappreciated, unspectacular veteran steps in to save the day when the over-hyped, superstar-of-tomorrow quarterback demonstrates he’s clearly not ready for primetime. (Oh, and did I mention the winning, veteran QB started out his college football career for the team he beat, where he was also unappreciated and unspectacular?)

On the other hand, another cliché didn’t play out tonight – the home team should have won, allowing the post-traumatic fans some respite from their emotional trauma.

Oh well.
