A Note About the Allen QB Who Plays for Arkansas

As Deadspin noted earlier, Allen’s Casey Dick, now quarterbacking the Arkansas Razorbacks, can be a headline writer’s worst nightmare. Or best friend, depending on where that headline writer works. (Why? Because there’s a nation of people like me out there: bearded, handsome, and juvenile.) Not sure on which side this item from ESPN.com falls.

    I so want a C.Dick jersey. I do. Because I’m a third grader.

  2. InTheKnow says:

    He’s really good about taking advantage of the holes in the defense, so it will be interesting to see if he’s quick enough to sling it around.

    Well, at least his name is not “Tasty.”

    This guy has huge upside, but he’s a little too arrogant for my tastes. So arrogant, it comes across as cocky.

  6. J Paul says:

    In a previous season Casey Dick was injured and his back up (Robert Johnson) was scheduled to play. The headline read:

    Dick Out Johnson In

    True story.

  7. Tim Rogers says:

    If his offensive line doesn’t give him the protection he needs, I could see him taking some punishment and waking up after game day, feeling a bit stiff.

  8. Jerry Jones says:

    BTW, This has been highlighted in the media and on blogs since Casey became a starter at Arkansas.

  9. Richard Butkis says:

    Just add it to the List

  10. Bethany says:

    He has a brother on the team. Unfortunately, his name is not Aaron, Andrew, or Amos.

  11. Dirt Monkey says:

    I cut my journalism “teeth” at many local papers, the Allen American being one of them. Casey Dick, and later brother Nathan, provided us with many a laugh during headline writing. Unfortunately, they rarely got past the sports editor … although he laughed too.

  12. Zac Crain says:

    Guess what, JJ? In a year, I’ll forget this post and I’ll do it again. Try not to get crotchety.

    Quotes from the article taken out of context:

    “He’s showed a lot of poise when we’ve been behind”

    “Dick will have to wait a little longer for his first and only shot at the Longhorns.”

    Is someone fluffing during the interim?

  14. mm says:

    @Bethany: N Dick is almost as funny.

  15. Long Memory says:

    Let’s hope Arkansas will schedule Southern Cal sometime soon. Testing the Trojans, see?

  16. Bethany says:

    Just be glad he doesn’t play hockey, or we’d be hearing about Dick in the crease…

  17. mm says:

    No. Never want to play USC again, ever.
