    First up: Minnesota QB Max Shortell!

    I figure we will get the Minnesota player out of the way before the shellacking VT is about to give us.

    He's a huge reason why Minnesota is talking about bowl eligibility again, and he's tall. He is also...













    ...a ginger.

    AHHHHHHH!

    But hey! We don't care. We love him all the same. He was a huge part in upsetting/getting EA lucky against Nebraska last year and he is the clear cut number one this year. He has a pretty good group of WRs to throw to, and a better OL than last year so we are hoping the offense has a break out year.


    His first test is against a ranked Virginia Tech team at home.

    I am dumb and don't know how to fix the text I messed up. Just think of reading it as a fun brain teaser.

    This weeks player is the new starting HB for the Texas A&M aggy, who are recently coming off their first national title and have a new coach. Ben Malena is the player. The 5'8 senior is a speedster that has helped A&M forget Christine Micheal early as he is the leading rusher after week one. He hails from the great state of Texas. His ratings are crazy, and if aggy is going to repeat as national title winners I am going to puke he is going to have to have a good year.
