Congratulations to Jarvis Jones
the Columbus native who we gratiously got a second chance with thanks to Lane Kiffin and the doctors at Southern Cal has been named one of 12 semi finalists for the Butkus Award. We'd assume Vontez Burfinct or one of the Alabama LBs are the front runner for the award, but it's a sign that Jones has really flourished off the edge in Grantham's 3-4, and a big game Saturday could go a long way in to making him a finalist, not just a semi-finalist. Let's hope he sticks around for his senior season, because if so, next year's defense is looking scary good.
