The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


By Marc Lawrence, — Shedeur Sanders has been one of the biggest stories of the college football season so far, but his rise to stardom hasn’t come without adversity. The Colorado quarterback has been sacked 25 times this season, which ties him with Hawaii’s Brayden Schager for the most in the FBS. I read that one Pac-12 assistant coach thinks it’s by design. “I think he takes sacks because he doesn’t want to affect his completion percentage,” said the assistant in an article by The Athletic. It seems ridiculous to assume that a quarterback would risk injury by choosing to be sacked repeatedly instead of moving the ball downfield, but that seems to be this coach’s conclusion. Go figure.
