Who is this mysterious fake Chase Daniel? The real one — formerly the quarterback for the Missouri Tigers, currently with the Washington Redskins — is royally peeved that someone has apparently put up a Facebook page using his name. And Daniel, the real one, is not a person to let a social networking insult slide. Oh, no.
Daniel has gone out of his in interviews to emphasize that he doesn’t use his real name on his Facebook page — of which only a few people know the url. But lately, he says, someone has been Facebooking using his name. So Daniel took to Twitter to ask people to get the word out that this Facebook Chase Daniel is a cad and an imposter. Read more…
While it’s widely accepted that the SEC has been the best conference in college football over the last few years, things may be changing a bit this year. Right now the Big 12 has four teams in the top 10 of the BCS rankings, and five in the top 15. A big reason for this is quarterback play, as Texas has Colt McCoy, Oklahoma has Sam Bradford, Texas Tech has Graham Harrell, and Missouri has Chase Daniel.
Well, Chase was recently asked by Kirk Herbstreit which quarterback beside himself he would want to take the ball in the final two minutes of the game. Daniel chose UT’s McCoy, and the reason he gave may have included a Freudian slip. Thankfully, EVERYDAY SHOULD BE SATURDAY had the video, and it’s after the jump.
Maybe praying for Tim Tebow works after all. Certainly, any prayers for LSU coach Les Miles fell flat, as the Tigers were whacked 51-21 by Tebow’s Florida Gators in a match-up of the last two BCS national champions. At least Miles didn’t get struck by lightening, so maybe your prayers helped after all.
Florida went up 20-0 early, and after allowing LSU to close to 20-14 early in the third quarter, Tebow was able to steady the ship and the Gators rattled off 21 unanswered points to put the game well out of reach.
Missouri’s Chase Daniel looked to be playing with some anger on his face during yesterday’s 52-17 smackdown of Nebraska.
Prior to the game, however, it was spit that could be found on the face of the Tigers’ quarterback. Daniel says an unnamed Husker player spit on him during pre-game warmups. There’s no need to call on Jerry Seinfeld and Keith Hernandez to solve this mystery, though. Chase knows who it was.
The quarterback who had to feel another man’s saliva on his face tells the ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH, “I never (had that) done before. I’m not going to say who it was,” Daniel said. “He knows who it was and that’s bush league.”
