It seems no matter where I turn the last couple of weeks, I've read slam after slam on Shawn Watson, and while he's certainly shouldn't be immune to criticism, it's gotten old and nearly pointless at this point. Yes, we know what happened in the Big XII Championship game. Criticize him for not changing quarterbacks if you will, but when you have a running quarterback who's has injuries to both feet, you've got an issue with what you can do.
And let's not bring up his previous championship game performances either; those were different teams that had their own offensive issues. 2005 was a Colorado team that mailed it in, while the 2009 Husker offense had their own problems with injuries at quarterback and running back.
I'm not praising Watson at all, but the constant chirping has gone far enough at this point. It's no longer original, and pointless. Do you really think it's going to encourage Miami to hire Watson? Do you really think it's going to convince Bo Pelini to fire Watson? Do you really think it's going to convince Harvey Perlman or Tom Osborne to force Pelini's hand?
I just don't see the point, other than bitching and moaning. What have I missed?
