In Pee Wee football, if a player weighs too much, he is not allowed to play wide receiver because he'll just run over the rest of the kids.

For the sake of Georgia Tech's opponents, they should institute Pee Wee rules in college football, so defenses don't have to battle wide receiver Calvin Johnson.

Johnson is one of the most imposing receivers I've ever seen; he and Oklahoma running back Adrian Peterson are physically the best players in the nation. And with Peterson out for the season with a broken collarbone, Johnson's chances for challenging Heisman Trophy favorite Troy Smith just improved dramatically.
