Sometimes in life you may feel compelled to let a little kid win at something because, well, he's little and he actually cares. But at some point you have to crush him so he knows that dreams can be crushed. Otherwise he'll never adapt. That's our best guess as to what the Ohio State quarterback Cardale Jones was thinking when he smoked a kid 98-35 in a game of NCAA Football last January. Less than a week after that, he won a game in similar ass-beating fashion against Oregon, though that game was called the "National Championship," and it was for real.
