In which we reward the highlights and lesser luminaries of Week 2.

Sticker_improving_medium  IMPROVING!  Trent Richardson, the adorable creature who's been toiling in the tailback shadow of Mark Ingram his entire career at Alabama, and who had a nice little outing against Penn State: 144 rushing yards on 22 carries and a touchdown. That's nice, we guess. You know, if you're into having two unstoppable running backs on the same team. S'not for everybody. Whatever.

Sticker_superstar_medium  SUPERSTAR! Denard Robinson and his 502 (FIVE HUNDRED AND TWO) yards of offense against Notre Dame. We touched on this yesterday, but it bears serious examination: What are Freep investigative types going to do with their free time if Michigan keeps winning games?

Sticker_handup_medium  HAND UP!  Yes, Dan Hawkins? Yes, we know you had a bad day. Yes, we know everyone in the Pac-10 is being mean to you. No, you may not have a bathroom pass. No, you may not have a contract extension. Sit down, Dan Hawkins.

Sticker_try_medium  YOU TRIED!  Case Keenum, who sustained a concussion against UTEP and therefore came away with only 297 passing yards on 15 completions. (TRIVIA: Keenum's backup is named Cotton Turner, and by natural law could not have grown up to do anything other than quarterback in the South.)

Sticker_taketurns_medium  TAKE TURNS! Kansas, determined to be everything to everyone this season. Punchline to all? Check. Bully to Josh Nesbitt's Heisman campaign? Check. For their next trick, the Jayhawks will turn a hot chick with glasses and overalls (Southern Miss) into a hot chick without either glasses or overalls, then fall in love with her.

Sticker_sitstill_medium  SIT STILL! Tennessee, allowing LaMichael "The Michael" James to do this:

Sticker_creative_medium  CREATIVE! Oklahoma State? Fumbled in victory formation and almost lost to Troy (again), all in the same evening. We have to say, we didn't see at least one of those things coming. Neither did thisbro:


Sticker_bee_medium  BUSY BEE!  Marcus Lattimore, who ... lordamercy, a freshman with 37 carries, 182 yards, two touchdowns. The hell is this kid doing in Sakerlina?  How much are we, as a division, looking forward to defending against his ass the next two or three years? VERY MUCH NOT AT ALL THANK YOU FOR ASKING.

Sticker_helper_medium  GOOD HELPER! James Madison, clearly on the payroll of BCS interests to keep Boise State out of the title game in exchange for ACC consideration. (Which, after this weekend, the ACC could do worse than entertain.)

Staradequate-1_medium   ADEQUATE! Our sincere congratulations to the Rutgers Scarlet Knights on their hard-fought road victory over Florida International.

Sticker_grapejob_medium  GRAPE JOB!  Way to go, West Virginia. Way to beat a "rival" who's never, ever bested you on the gridiron, in a primetime slot with a nation's lonely eyes tuned to you. Way to need overtime to do it. Grape. Juuuust grape.
