It’s About Time Bruins Discovered Ebell
I just watched Tyler Ebell run for 160 yards and one touchdown, his fourth 100-plus-yard game. The sports announcers couldn’t say enough about the performance of this prolific running back, yet it took spring camp, fall training camp and a major tailback injury to get Bob Toledo to play him.
During the victory over Stanford, the Bruins threw only one pass to tight end Mike Seidman, resulting in a touchdown. Seidman, a projected top NFL draft pick, has been waiting four years for the ball and has yet to get his number called consistently.
Toledo is oblivious to the player combinations that could have made this team -- and past teams -- a serious contender. Get rid of him and hire a coach who knows what he has and what to do with it.
The Stanford-UCLA game was a big upset. The Stanford coach amazingly out-dumbed Bob Toledo. It is interesting to note that last year’s Stanford coach, Ty Willingham, outsmarted Toledo by leaving Stanford knowing that the cupboard was bare. If Toledo was as smart as Willingham, he would have left UCLA when Cade McNown finished his career there.
Regarding Thursday’s article on Tyler Ebell: The real question is, did he ever pay for the mints he stole every day? Perhaps I’m just being petty, but I don’t think that’s the right example for children who might otherwise be inspired by Ebell’s story and accomplishments.
