Joel Klatt Says It’s An “Absolute Insult” To Compare Sam Ehlinger To Tim Tebow

first_img “It is an absolute insult to @sehlinger3 to compare him to Tim Tebow.”@JoelKlatt explains why the @TexasFootball QB deserves more respect for how he’s started out the season. 🤘 pic.twitter.com/OrOYvwtiWw— FOX College Football (@CFBONFOX) September 26, 2019Ehlinger’s numbers in 2019 certainly would suggest that Klatt’s right. His 72-percent completion rate, 15 touchdowns through four games, and 4.5 yards per carry are all better than Tebow’s best years as a starter.But while Klatt may feel that Ehlinger is a better quarterback than Tebow, there are plenty who can make the opposite argument.For starters, Tebow had at least three years completing at least 65-percent of his passes. If Ehlinger finishes this year above that mark, it will be his first.Tebow also averaged at least 3.8 yards per carry in each of his four seasons. Again, if Ehlinger finishes above 3.8 yards per carry this year, it will also be his first.But the stat that may mean the most to fans and historians is wins and trophies.Tebow won two SEC and national titles (one each as a backup and one as a starter). Thus far, Ehlinger has none. And with one loss already, he may not even get a chance to play for a national title in 2019.We can debate Ehlinger vs. Tebow for hours on end. But we may need to wait until we get to see Ehlinger’s whole career play out before declaring him better than one of the greatest college players ever.

(Photo by Sean Gardner/Getty Images)Texas quarterback Sam Ehlinger is currently enjoying a remarkable season with the Longhorns. The numbers he’s put up while leading Texas to a 3-1 start have made him a Heisman Trophy hopeful, and have Texas in the mix for the Big 12 title, if not the College Football Playoff.But while Ehlinger has been praised for his passing and rushing skillset, there’s one comparison that’s really grating on FOX Sports’ Joel Klatt’s nerves.On Thursday’s edition of Breaking The Huddle, Klatt made it clear that he doesn’t like seeing Ehlinger compared to Florida legend and former Heisman winner Tim Tebow.Klatt went so far as to call it “an absolute insult” to compare Ehlinger to Tebow. He explained that Ehlinger is about the same kind of runner as Tebow, but “twice or three times the passer” that Tebow was.last_img read more

Hobo with a Shotgun Canadian Premiere

first_imgA film described as “Gore Gone Wild”, “outside the horror toolbox”, and “double-barreled mayhem” is coming home for its Canadian premiere. The Halifax feature film that has been shocking film festival audiences is opening in theatres across Canada this weekend. To celebrate the film’s success and bring together cast, crew, families, and production partners, Hobo With A Shotgun will have its Canadian premiere on Wednesday, March 23, at an invitation-only event in Halifax. The gory film started its life as a trailer submitted to the Grindhouse Trailer contest put on by the South by Southwest (SXSW) Film Festival and filmmaker Robert Rodriguez. Following the success of the trailer, it grew into a full-length feature film that is placed alongside Peter Jackson’s Dead Alive and Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead. Receiving rave reviews following the film’s premiere at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival in January, Hobo headed back to SXSW to show fans how their support has initiated the transformation into a feature film. SXSW is an annual music, film, and interactive festival in Austin, Texas that allows independent movie producers to establish new connections and meet people from the film industry. “Four years ago we brought our little no budget trailer to SXSW and had one of the most amazing experiences of our lives. This time we went back to showcase a film that wouldn’t exist without the support we received from our fans and local partners, said the film’s director, Jason Eisener.”Specifically, we would like to thank Film Nova Scotia, which has been a strong supporter from the beginning.” “Seeing the success the Hobo with a Shotgun team has received really shows the strength of the production industry here in Nova Scotia,” said Ann MacKenzie, president and CEO of Film Nova Scotia. “As an industry, we have the crews, talent, and infrastructure to produce great films and we consider their success a win for the Nova Scotia film industry.” The premiere is sponsored by Film Nova Scotia, Telefilm Canada, Alliance Films, Yer Dead Productions, Rhombus Media, Whizbang Films, The Coast, and Q104 Radio. Film Nova Scotia is a provincial Crown Corporation reporting to the Minister for Economic and Rural Development and Tourism. The corporation provides a wide range of programs and services to support the province’s audiovisual industry. With an industry that employs almost 3,000 people and contributes $100 million to the economy annually, Nova Scotia is among the largest production centres in Canada.last_img read more
