Folks, this one could do down as the most random beef of all time. Can somebody please tell us what Texas Longhorns quarterback Sam Ehlinger did to piss off Hall of Fame signal-caller Terry Bradshaw? The veteran FOX NFL analyst was at his alma mater, Louisiana Tech, on Thursday to offer up some audacious thoughts on Ehlinger and the Horns, who just so happen to host Terry's Bulldogs in Week 1 of the college football season. The scene was puzzling.
"I never understood why players would want to go and stack up, like Texas — we open up with Texas this year,” Bradshaw said. “And one year, they signed three quarterbacks. Two are now gone. And the one that’s playing, he ain’t that good. And I’m like, really, 5-star? You watch them throw the football and you’re like, man alive — like they go there and they can’t throw the football. I’ll take our boys any day.”
Sheesh. What brought this on?
Never one to shy away from a hot take, Bradshaw is alarmingly biased and abundantly out of line here.
Nobody is calling Ehlinger an NFL-ready quarterback, but he's a very good college QB (who did run for a staggering 16 scores in 2018, mind you) AND will most likely throw for 3-plus touchdowns in a Longhorns blowout over LaTech to make Terry eat some well-deserved crow.
