•Jake Novak down at the Roar Lions 2012 blog discusses the finalists for the Bushnell Award and I have to agree with him that Penn quarterback Billy Ragone belongs on the list. Jake writes:
. . . Penn's Billy Ragone was the heart and soul of his Ivy championship team. And I think it's really puzzling why he isn't even a finalist for the top award.
Think about it: in the key moments against Columbia, Dartmouth, Princeton, and Harvard, Ragone was the difference between winning and losing.Forget Ragone's statistics. As a certain legendary Greek philosopher said in a posting on the Ivy League's unofficial message board:
If you were in a tough fight who would you want to lead your platoon? I'd want Ragone--he'd get my fanny out of there alive.
