Well, three wins in a row for us. We
haven’t been able to do that since September 29th of last year. I
continue to hope that we’ve bottomed out and are on the gradual clime
back up out of the hole we were in. One thing it certainly is not, is
pretty. For now, I’ll take the ugly wins and look forward to seeing
these young, talented stars mature into eventual champions.
The Offense was still anemic, and we didn’t help our overly inflated
“scoring offense” numbers by only getting one touchdown against Weak
Florist. The Quarterback situation is still as clouded as it has been.
By the numbers, neither player shined this past week. Marve’s
decision-making in the pocket is in doubt, but his winning attitude is
irrefutable. He was able to get us our only touchdown of the day by
sheer force of will. I would, however, like to see more of Harris. In
the end, it may just come down to him being much less prone to making
mistakes and not putting us in a position when we always have to come
back or hold on to a single score lead.
The Defense had, once again, a slow start, but tightened up nicely. Two
of the three first quarter drives yielded 66 and 63 yards and all 10
points. With two exceptions of the remaining drives when they closed
into FG range and came up empty, the D was just about spot on the rest
of the way. The disclaimer is that Wake’s offense hasn’t exactly been
blowing teams out, and they’ve only broken 30 points twice this year
(against Baylor and Ole Piss.) We’ll need a much tighter game against
the ‘Queers this week if we want to keep this thing rolling.
Special Teams were shaky as usual. Bosher was money with putting it
between the sticks, but another shanked punt with the game on the line
was almost disastrous. Shields had a great game, but Benjamin was
somewhat quieted by Wake’s coverage. I do sense, however, that we’re on
the cusp of being very deadly on punt returns. (I leave out kickoff
returns because, theoretically, we only want to field one of them
during the game.) D'Annunzio will need to stay on top of this if we are
to continue to notch wins.
Now the Fails:
– A big victory was banked against the SEC. Our scrub beat their scrub.
– We needed some help with this one, but spotting Botch 24 points in
the 2nd quarter is not how you win. The Tar Holes added another 21 in
the second half and the Eagles couldn’t keep up. 45-24 Tar Holes
– Weak Florist continued to choke on offense, only scoring their second
touchdown in four conference games. The up side was they improved their
ppg from 8 to 8.5. 16-10 Hurricanes
- Cho Seung-Hui is apparently reaching out from the grave to take out
VThug quarterbacks. We get a little help from That Clown College for
Girls, and could possibly be on course for a December rematch against
the Criminoles. 30-20 That Clown College for Girls
– It’s as if nobody wants the lead in the Coastal Division. Hapless
UVAg seems to have “found their rhythm” notching their 4th win in a
row, while the Bee’s offense continues to be suspect. 24-17 Cavaqueers
St. – For the third week in a row, the Wolfcrack lose by
less than 10 points. I can’t quite figure out how they got blown-out by
Strip Mall U when they’re seemingly playing tough against better
competition. Oh well, as long as they choke on November 29th, I could
care less. 27-24 Fighting Turtles
– Oh, it looked like it was going to be a close one… for about one
quarter. The Pirate Ship sails on and pillages Lawrence. 63-21 Red
– The Circus watched as his team went from being in this game at
halftime, to being shut out in the 2nd half. 32-20 Cornholers
– 55 first half points for Bradfart and ‘Homo was all they needed
against the Mildcats. 58-35 Oklahomo
– Well, they sure gave the Tea Sips more of a fight than ‘Homo did.
Colt had almost 400 yards passing, yet the steers only scored four TDs.
28-24 t.u. with a visit to the Pirate lair this week.
– The Buffs are having a very Baylor-like season. It’s a good thing
they don’t play each other this year, or there might be some horrible
cosmic event. (Not to mention that nobody would watch.) 58-0 Mizzou
– a2m bags their first Big XII win against the Cyclones, also known as
the conference door mat. 49-35 Aggies
Big East –
1-0 with Coker 2.0 beating a team with no OC.
– The Catbears were looking to have a standard mediocre season, but
Yuke-on got the best of them with 20 4th quarter points. 40-16 Putzkies
– Strip Mall U’s early season non-conference schedule has been exposed
for the fraud that it was. The Bullocks are now in 7th place in the Big
Yeast (out of 8,) yet are somehow still ranked. 24-20 (ain’t no)
– Boy, Wanstache’s defense just got rolled by Monkey Boy. The Scarlet
Letters are trying to salvage their season, and drop (arm) Pitt from
the top of the standings. 54-34 Chimpiano
– As suspect as I was of Northworstern’s 6-1 record, I’d call this the
most unlikely result of the week. 21-19 Hoosier (daddy)
– In the second-most unlikely result, the Cheesers find the W column
for the first time in the league. 27-17 stinking Badgers
– Serious pillowfight contention here, but the Gopher’s 4th quarter TD
put it just out of reach. 17-6 for the stars of Caddyshack
– DickRod is in a death spiral right now. There’s better than a good
chance that they could only win one game the rest of the way and all
signs point to being home for the post season for the first time since
1974. 35-21 Spartans
– Pillowfight of the Week!
For all the hype, this game was pretty pathetic. As much as I hate
JoePud, I’m glad to see Taint blow this one. 13-6 State Penn
– 0-1 *yawn*
– The Rice Truck rolls into NoLa and dishes out a beating to Tulame.
Methodist – I wonder if Jones is wishing he’d stayed at
Hawaii. 34-7 Navy
Mississippi – Maybe the Eagles can find some eligibility
for Farve as they drop to 0-4 in the league. 36-30 Memphis
– UniCeF had the lead 19-14 at the break, and then went home. 49-19
– Because we hate you, and always will.
– Losing to Temple? Things must be bad for the Bobcats. 14-10 Temple
– Ball sack St. continues to roll unblemished. The Eagles continue to
suck. 38-16 Cards
– The Rockettes took a dump on the chance sweep their four Meatchicken
opponents. The Chippewas have taken hold as the best team in the state.
– Just change your name to Oxford. It will at least sound impressive.
54-21 Kent (believe they won) St.
– Bowling for nothing. The Huskies hang tough. 16-13 NIU
– Air Force soars. 23-10 Falcons
– Mormons try to recover. 42-35 Cougars
– No state here! 54-7 Horny Toads
San Diego St.
– Aztecs get Rammed. 38-34 Colorado St.
Pac 10 0-1
Angeles – Neweasel continues to struggle. 41-20 Berkley
– Willingham throws in the towel and UDub gets raped by Ty’s former
team. 33-7 Fat Charlie and the Facking Irish
– Pink is having a sophomore slump with the Scum Devils, taking this
one from behind at home. 54-20 Donald Ducks
– A tough defensive struggle, and Dirty Sanchez comes out with the win.
17-10 Southern Cal
Sun Belt 0-1
– The Simple Green continue their woes and are 0-8. 45-17 Troy
St. – Could beat Maryland but not Mississippi St? 31-22
Clown – Death struggle with Schnelly in a Dog of the Week
game. 29-28 Owls
–.1-2 with the win against the Sun Belt
That Cow College
– Nothing in the second half. 34-17 Wet Vagina
– I know you suck, but at least act like you care. 63-5 UFaG
– Dookie sucked a little less in this one. 10-7 Puke
– The Dawgs are determined to not go away quietly this season. 52-38 UGa
– How does 1-4 taste? Taste like pork. 23-21 Ole’ Piss
– Hmm, I guess 1-4 also tastes like Jack Daniels. 29-9 Satan
San Jose St.
– The Broncos hit the road to take this one and stay perfect on the
year at 7-0. 33-16 Boise St.
– Terry Bradshaw is not pleased that his team lost to Army. 14-7 Cadets
– The Aggies are still pathetic. 30-28 Fresno St.
New Mexico St.
– The Aggies are still pathetic. The Vandals get their first league
win. 20-14 Idaho
– Reno drops to an even 4-4 2-2 record and the Rainbows go one-up on
them. 38-31 Warriors
