No, this is not a broken record.
For the second week in a row, Houston’s Case Keenum is the Heismanpundit.com Player of the Week.
He went 24 of 37 for 534 yards with 9 touchdowns (and one pick) in a 73-34 win over Rice last Thursday night. For those of you keeping score at home, that gives him 15 TD passes in the last two games.
Look. I know some of you will poo-poo this accomplishment because he played a team that basically none of you know anything about.
And there’s a little something to that. Keenum would not put up these kind of numbers in a BCS conference or in a different system. Granted.
But look, let’s not act like throwing 9 touchdown passes is an every day occurrence, okay? The day Rice starts giving up 9 TD passes with regularity, we can shrug this kind of thing off.
For now, let’s celebrate Keenum for his amazing season and career.
One thing I know for sure: Heisman voters are starting to take notice.
