Seattlehawk, you're not the only one my friend. Every week I always get the "Do you have a mancrush on Reesing?" And every week the answer is always "YES!"

Is he for Republicans or Donkeys? I voted but I'll be pissed if Hillary is his running mate... Rockem Hawks!!!

SDJayhawk 13 years, 12 months ago

Oh, CasperCorps, u r funny. but I agree, hope he's not running with her, lol. As long as he keeps KU scoring enough to win games, he's cool. hope he wins this award too.

I love Reesing (and I voted for him), but if Colt Brennan doesn't win that award, there's something very wrong.

Brennan is hands-down the best quarterback in college football. (Maybe EVER. There, I said it!)

Just voted for Reesing five times on my five different emails. And if I can, tomorrow I'll vote for him five more times.
