Jake Martin is a compulsive sports enthusiast. More specifically, he's an MMA nerd and college football addict. Basically, nothing else matters. Except, you know, other important things like God, family, girlfriend, friends, food (definitely food) and what have you. Though he's still in college, he's participated in UFC conference calls, attended SEC Media Days and interviewed a who's who of quarterbacks at the Manning Passing Academy. He's also somewhat full of himself.

You were the one saying Cam Newton only played one year of SEC football which is false, since he was the back up at Florida
Cam Newton didn't play in the SEC for one year either, in case you forgot. He was at Florida and I would still not count him as a top 10 SEC quarterback overall
Putting Manziel in the Top 10 SEC Quarterbacks of all time and he has only played one season...? And potting Tebow over the great SEC quarterbacks such as Archie Manning, Joe "Willie" Namath, and others is a joke
Jake, how could you critize miles like that? The guy wins! He is the Tim Tebow of the college football coaching world! The man has it! ALL HE DOES IS WIN!
Jake, Choosing to publicize Miles' apparent weaknesses is pretty cheap. Show me the perfect coach...or better yet, show me the perfect sportswriter. Selecting sports topics must be getting tougher. After his five greatest weaknesses, you might want to look at his won-loss record.
I your last page about LSU you called TRAVIS Dickson Richard Dickson. Richard already graduated years ago and is a simple mistake as he is the most productive TE in LSU history.
As NIU alumni I was reading your column about how the Huskies will get killed by FSU in the Orange Bowl. To borrow a phrase from Daniel Patrick Moynihan, Jake you are certainly entitled to your own opinion, however you are not entitled to your own facts. NIU has 12 wins this year not the 11 you mention in the article.
NIU Class 1979
I have really enjoyed your columns! You do a great job.
They are playing up the fact the Johnny broke both Tim Tebow's and Cam Newton's numbers in the years they won the Heisman... The part that keeps getting left off and makes Johnny's numbers that much MORE amazing is that Johhny beat their numbers in the REGULAR season of 12 games!!!!
It took Tim Tebow 13 games (through his bowl game in 2007) and it took Cam Newton 14 games (through the SEC championship AND the National Championship) in 2010 to reach their numbers!
Please make this point in any of your future articles!!!
You never know what might happen in the future... Johnny might get hurt, his offensive line might not be as good, etc, etc. Tim Tebow won it when he was a sophmore and his numbers were much less in his Junior and Senior year...
Thanks again for some good writing!
Hey Jake, I have go say I love your articles. I just read your Heisman watch. I am a WVU alumni. I was just curious how can you keep Tavon Austin off that list. Yes I know WVU's record is not that good, but I thought the heisman was about the best Player in College football and he has shown that he may be the best in College football this year. Look at what he has done to the likes of Oklahoma and Texas. Just curious.Email me at email@example.com
I agree with you there. I'm in Louisiana, so I know the LSU spirit. LSU looked like a more balanced, aggressive team. They looked better than all of last year on Saturday night. I was going to say Oregon could whip LSU (maybe in Eugene, Oregon), but then I realized LSU has a stout defense.
