There are only a few days left until the first Saturday of the college football season and SportsPickle is counting down the top stories of 2009. Today: No. 6, Terrelle Pryor.
Terrelle Pryor is only the sixth biggest story of the 2009 season, but next season he will own college football.
This year Tim Tebow is Mr. College Football. But Tebow isn't even the reigning Heisman Trophy winner. And then there is Colt McCoy, too. So while Tebow gets a ton of attention now, the focus is spread out a bit.
Next year Tebow will be gone. Sam Bradford and McCoy will be, too. All that will be left is Terrelle Pryor. (And that uber-douche Jimmy Clausen.)
That's why you should enjoy Terrelle Pryor this season while he's still under-the-radar a bit. Because next year the hype will be so over-the-top, even the Ohio State marching band might spell out script "Please. Enough Already." during their performances.
In 2010, everything that's been said about Tim Tebow will be ratcheted up for Terrelle Pryor.
Tim Tebow circumcises little boys? Terrelle Pryor will cut your balls off.
Tim Tebow is a virgin? Terrelle Pryor immaculately conceived Tim Tebow.
Tim Tebow was a missionary child? Terrelle Pryor is his own religion.
So be an early convert to the religion of Terrelle Pryor. It's faster-growing than even Scientology. Although, granted, Ohio State fans are bit more annoying and delusional than Scientologists.
