Fresno State quarterback Derek Carr looked in pain as he sat down at the post-game news conference Saturday.
At this point, there’s not much left to like about the Dallas Cowboys, who are riding a broken-down donkey of a coach and following a quarterback, Tony Romo, who can’t shoot straight under pressure.
The NFL agent was talking about the inevitability of comparison between draft choices past and present, about how scouts and general managers might look down on a wide receiver from one school because others from it had failed, about how they might downgrade a linebacker because his was a college system that doesn’t always transfer successfully to the pros.
When handicapping bowl games, motivation and location are crucial elements to consider. It helps to find a quarterback edge, too, and Fresno State has one today with Derek Carr.
