Why Do We Listen to Beno Cook?
Sorry guys. I don't get why Beno Cook matters any more.
It seems as if every radio show and football show across the country needs to get him on the air to talk college football. I really don't think he knows what he's talking about.
He lost me again this weekend when he talked about a player who was emerging as a legitimate Heisman Trophy candidate.
I really thought he was going to shock the world and bring up Michigan State quarterback Drew Stanton, a guy you need to place into the equation. That would have been too genius for Beno. Instead he waxed about Notre Dame quarterback Brady Quinn.
Now I do respect Quinn. But how can you bring him up over Stanton who beat the Irish and leads the unbeaten Spartans (4-0 overall, 1-0 in the Big Ten) into a big battle Saturday against Michigan (2-2)?
Cook really lost me a long time ago when he predicted Notre Dame quarterback Ron Powlus to win three Heisman Trophy awards. Beno only missed that one by three.
He bumbles and stumbles and makes predictions that never come true. Yet ESPN and everybody else parades him around as if he matters.
I say enough of Beno. He's had his moment in the sun.
