All the buzz this week around Nebraska is "Can we stop Heisman candidate Jake Locker and his rocket arm?" The answer is yes. Why? Because Jake Locker is a loser. He is 9-21 in his career as a starter. That means he has won less than 30% of the games he has played in. There are two types of quarterbacks out there: leaders who make those around them better, and individuals who pad their stats and don't worry about the end result. Locker is definitely the latter. Yea, he is a great athlete and fits into this "ideal pro quarterback" build. Sure, he is a great baseball player. But it comes down to wins, and he is awful at helping his team to win. You can give me the "he is surrounded by bad teammates" excuse and a million others, but I'm not buying any of them. The Pac-10 is the softest conference in the country to begin with, and then Washington turns around loses to out of conference teams too (BYU? You let the Mormons beat you Jake?) Get real with the "Locker for Heisman" campaign. When was the last time a quarterback from a sub .500 team won the Hesiman? Locker is the least of Nebraska's concerns this weekend. He will be on his back all day.
And what is going on in this picture? Does he always make out with his dad after games?
