Kirk Cousins shines, MSU recruits reach title game

One of the big stories in the NFL on Sunday happened to be Kirk Cousins leading the Washington Redskins to a big victory.

With Robert Griffin III going down, Cousins came off the bench to help the Redskins earn a 31-28 overtime victory over the Ravens. The victory kept Washington in the NFC playoff picture.

Per ESPN’s Stats and Info, Cousins became the first non-starting quarterback to throw a game-tying touchdown pass in regulation, and go on to win in overtime siince Cleveland Browns QB Derek Anderson.

Cousins finished the game 2 of 2 passing for 26 yards and a TD.

In the weekly recruiting info, Erie Cathedral Prep teammates Damion Terry and Delton Williams – both 2013 MSU recruits – have led the Ramblers to the Pennsylvania state championship game.

Terry was 12 of 20 passing for 165 yards and three touchdowns in Cathedral Prep’s 38-3 victory over nationally ranked Bishop McDevitt. He also had 13 carries for 75 yards and two touchdowns. Williams had 12 carries for 75 yards and a reception for seven yards in the win.

Terry now has 6,618 career passing yards and 85 TD passes – both District 10 records. He has 3,282 passing yards this season – also a District 10 record - for the 14-0 Ramblers, who will face Archbishop Wood in Friday’s PIAA state final.

On the basketball front, MSU two-sport recruit Drake Harris is averaging 19.5 points through Grand Rapids Christian’s first two games. The Eagles are off to an 0-2 start. Harris scored 20 points on Friday in a 69-63 loss to Grand Rapids South Christian. He scored 19 on Tuesday in a 77-67 loss to Grand Rapids Catholic Central.

    Here’s a write up by somebody who does know something about football – unlike Cracker.

    Ya see Cracker, he doesn’t mention the guy who transferred, who didn’t honor his word, who baled when the going got tough. (I guess you did because you wanna be all kumbaya with somebody of your own ilk.)

    Don’t forget Kirk’s 2 point conversion. With a back-up job every moment (and point) counts.

    Just for a point of reference, Cracker, how do you know “Amid fans’ cheers, Le’Veon Bell hears NFL calling”? Have you talked to Le`Veon? I don’t think so, as Coaches at MSU won’t let you anywhere near their players. So as usual, your just making stuff up! kinda like tweeting about the Civil Rights Movement, something you have no clue about, but just thought you’d be a pompous DHSFB.

      Notice the difference in the spelling of Le`Veon’s name between this and what I copied and pasted from Cracker’s tweet. And, this Buffoon has the audacity to call himself a columnist.

    Hey SofaBed, here’s something that anyone who knows anything about college sports at the DI level (not at the Geographic School, MAC level) knows:

    “It is commonplace for draftable college juniors to submit paperwork to the NFL College Advisory Committee”

    Chris, Speedy recovery for your bride (and remember she should always be just that)

    AND

    Thanks for the tweets on the Presser.
