Randall Cobb snubbed of the Hornung Award

It just keeps getting worse for UK athletics.  Today, Stanford’s Owen Marecic was named the inaugural winner of the Paul Hornung Award over Randall Cobb. Marecic played fullback and linebacker for Stanford and was the only player in college football to start on both sides of the ball.  He carried the ball 46 times on the season for five touchdowns, recorded 51 tackles, two interceptions, and two sacks.

The award is given to the most versatile player in college football so it’s hard to argue against Marecic.  If only the Paul Hornung Award was given to the most versatile player with dreamy eyes who scores whenever he wants to, we’d be celebrating tonight in Cobb’s honor.

Still, congrats to Randall for even being considered for the award.  It must be an honor to be mentioned in the same breath as an old man who can’t keep his pants up…

    St Louis and Arizona are birds… Standford Cardinal is the color not the bird… I was going to buy a ticket to the Paul Hournung dinner but not now… My guess is Billy Reed will be there to try and justify his heismen vote…

    1 – Cardinal is reference to the color red, not the bird.

    1 – Beat me to it. Cardinal is reference to the color red, not the bird.

    So if he played for Syracuse, would it read “played linebacker for the Oranges”?

    this is the same player BTI blasted a sports writer because he voted this player for Heisman a few weeks back. I guess that guy’s vote had some merit to it.

    Well we can be thankful for one thing, at Horning’s age that he remembered to put any pants on at all…..A lot of head shots while playing for the dirty bird(s).

    9 Hornung played for the dirty birds? FYI, he played college ball @ Notre Dame but is from Loserville and went to Flaget HS.

    This is as egregious as the over turning of that called lateral and fumble recovery in the bowl game Saturday! They might as well called it the switch hitter or going both ways award! Cobb is the most versitale player in football hands down!

    And the losses continue for the Cats. Un-friggin-believable.

    Lots of props to anyone who can/does start both ways in college football.

    ==== Paul Hornung is a great Kentuckian, you don’t have to worry about being mentioned in the same breath as him Mr. Franklin ……… you see you’re just a writer ….. not an athlete!

    The only award you might be eligible for one day is “”PUNY PUNDIT””!

    How can you say it’s hard to argue with the pick? Cobb did many more things and was more successful at them all. WR, RB, QB, KO returner, PR, placekick holder. He scored TDs in four different ways this year: receiving, rushing, passing and special teams. This is an outrage!
