Straight Outta' Crompton

As I continued to mull the UF-UT game, it occurred to me that Crompton might have been our most valuable player in 2008 and 2009.

In 2008, he fumbled on the UF 2 and threw an interception from the UF 1.

In 2009, he threw a pair of key interceptions.

When you consider our lack of gaudy offensive statistics or individual examples of game-dominating offensive play, I think it's difficult to underestimate his role.

Who would have ever thought that the H.W.A. (Hillbillyz with Attitude) would be nostalgic for Erik Ainge (statistically excellent, but whom they criticized for being unable to win, with two 4-loss seasons in his two campaigns at the helm despite being sacked only 3 times his senior season and 13 his junior)?

With the way he's played throughout his UcheaT career, he'd be best served changing his last name to "Crapton" (LOL).

The only game I can think of where an opposing player contributed so specifically to a UF victory is Jamarcus Russell in 2006.

2 passes across the line of scrimmage. 2 picks. give him the MVP!

Andrew, you're absolutely right. I probably didn't use strong enough language.
