We need another guy with passion on defense. We are a bit too workmanlike for my tastes. Football is a game of hard-driving emotions, and it looks like Babin gets all geeked up before games. I like it. Thanks for the link nun.
oh yeah, no chicken or pork bones for the pooch please.
“I get pretty nuts before a game. It’s almost as if I’m watching myself from outside my body,” he said. “My pregame ritual is kind of hard to describe — head butts, some choice words, stuff like that — but I’m just trying to make sure that all the fellas are ready for the game.”
Babin’s passion is what sets him apart, says Western Michigan coach Gary Darnell.
“His numbers are good — his height [6-4] and weight [276 pounds] — but without question it goes beyond the numbers with Jason,” Darnell said. “He really loves to play football. He takes advantage of all his talent, and the good thing about Jason is he makes a bunch of the rest of us look good.”
Though the Broncos went 4-8 last season, Babin helped them finish first in the MAC in total defense. He had multiple sacks in five games, including three against Purdue, and he ended up with 26 tackles behind the line of scrimmage, second most in the country. He also blocked two punts and even caught a pass as a tight end.
