For the second year in a row, Ben Olson wins the Season’s first Pac-10 Offensive Player of the Week Award
It’s gonna be tough for John David Booty to win the Heisman if he can’t even win the Pac-10 MVP. And if the Season ended tomorrow, that honor would go to UCLA Quarterback Ben Olson. Olson was named the Pac-10 Offensive Player of the Week yesterday, after throwing 5 TD’s against Stanford.
Olson now has a history of fast starts, as he won the exact same Award in the first Week of last Season, after he dissected Utah at the Rose Bowl. The problem is that the Utah game was probably his best performance of the whole year. He never duplicated that success, with a major injury erasing half of his opportunities.
In this article there are 8 new photos, 1 of Ben, and 7 of another kind of MVP: Magnificently Voluptuous Princesses! Gee whiz — How are they supposed to live up to a billing like that? Click and learn, gentlemen. Click below and learn.
So the question is whether or not Olson can gain momentum in this Saturday’s game against his old school, BYU. The Cougars have a better Defense than the Cardinal, so it’s doubtful that Ben will net another 5 TD tosses, but all he (and we) REALLY care about is a victory. And with the Defense riled up and itching to prove that the Stanford game was NOT the best they can do, Olson’s Offense won’t need 5 TD Passes to get the “W.”
But don’t think that Olson’s award is tainted by the level of competition — Stanford is better than IDAHO. And with the trojans looking at a bye this week, and a game at sold out Nebraska the week after (while Olson gets to face Utah again), Olson might have THREE straight Player of the Week Awards under his belt, and Booty will be buried.
In fact, Olson’s stiffest competition may come from within. Kahlil Bell and his 195 yards Rushing would have got him at least 2nd place last week, but apparently, a team can nominate only one Player per Award. Look for Trey Brown to win the Defensive Award this week. Then, if Kai Forbath or Matthew Slater can win the Special Teams Award, the Bruins can hit the Trifecta. And if it happens, it won’t be because the opponent was hapless Idaho.
And speaking of hapless ho’s, Laker Owner Dr Jerry Busc pleaded GUILTY to Drunk Driving yesterday. He will pay a fine that is less than what he pays his “escorts” for one night, and is on five years Probation.
Below are 8 more photos from Stanford — One of Big Ben throwing one of his 5 TD passes, and 7 of the luscious legends of la la land, who, by the way, HAVE BEEN NOTHING BUT GRACIOUS TO US ABOUT THIS WEEK’S PHOTOS.
