Welcome to Heisman week at Barstool U, a new feature kicking off this week in honor of NCAA 13 and its Heisman Career Mode. Basically you can have Heisman legends join your college team for the first time and make a push for a national title. For example OSU fans can get Desmond Howard, Michigan fans can get Eddie George, UGA fans can get Tebow, and on and on. Diehards taking the enemy on their squad for a shot to win it all. Which obviously raises the question how far would you go to win the Heisman?
Question 1: Would you give up cheese for 1 year to win the Heisman?
This question is a Barstool favorite and for good reason. Pretty much impossible to pick the other option. I mean forget about just plain old cheese and crackers and a little prosciutto which is a fire snack in its own right. We’re talking no grilled cheese. No cheeseburgers. No PIZZA. I mean that’s pretty much the deal breaker right there. No pizza. Don’t think I could do that. Don’t think I could give up pizza for one week let alone an entire year. It’s too perfect. Means too much to me. Honestly what are you supposed to eat for dinner if there’s no pizza? How do you fill up 7 nights of the week with meals? It’s flat out impossible. I think you just starve to death with no pizza. You get 3 days into the week and realize you’re out of food options and just sit there depressed until you die. At least that’s what I would do. You’d have to be outside of your mind to ditch the best food on Earth for 365 days of your life.
But for the Heisman? Could you make the sacrifice? I mean we’re talking the most coveted individual prize in all of sports. The exclusive club. The fame and fortune. You’re pick of every chick on the block. People will remember your name for the rest of eternity. That’s a pretty big draw. Like it makes my month when somebody recognizes me on the subway from a picture of me looking like a moron on my blog. Can only imagine how much of a boss I’d feel like if everyone on the planet recognized me as a world class athlete who brought the biggest prize in the world to my school. Have a lot better luck at the bar Saturday night at 2 AM that’s for sure.
So let’s put it up for a vote. 1 for screw the Heisman, pizza all day every day or 5 for I’ll put Dominoes on hold for a year to be one of the most famous athletes on the planet…
