The oh-fer blues

I dunno, Boom.  I’m enjoying it lately.

Decided schematic advantage, my ass

Baylor racked up over 500 yards of offense against Kansas on Saturday.  In the first half.

But I’m not sure that’s even my favorite statistic from the game.  How about this one“All eight Baylor drives that ended in a touchdown were completed in under two minutes.”

It’s impressive to think that man (“After losing his first 13 Big 12 games, he must now prepare for road games at Texas and Oklahoma State.”) draws a paycheck with a straight face.

“Just a little fella.”

College football has its moments.

This is what a “nothing left to play for” season looks like, hunh?

I don’t think so.

Now Murray is in position to join a select group of Georgia quarterbacks who defeated Florida three times in their careers — a win that would be even sweeter since Murray is a Florida native who developed into a record-setting prospect at Tampa’s Plant High School.

… College Football Hall of Famer Johnny Rauch led the Bulldogs to wins over Florida in all four seasons of his career (1945-48), while Buck Belue piloted Georgia to three wins between 1979 and 1981 — including the legendary 1980 win, when he connected with Lindsay Scott on the game-winning 93-yard touchdown pass in the game’s closing seconds.

According to Georgia’s sports communications office, no other Bulldogs starting quarterback has more than two wins against the Gators dating to the 1940s, but Murray could join Rauch and Belue on Saturday.

It never, ever gets old beating Florida.  And shame on any Georgia fan who dismisses that.

Musical palate cleanser: We know they won’t win edition

If there’s a song to capture the feeling of romantic pessimism – not an easy concept to grasp – that has many of us in its grip today after Missouri’s loss, it’s Crowded House’s “Don’t Dream It’s Over”.

Here’s an especially bittersweet version, from their final show with Paul Hester on the drums.

My Mumme Poll ballot, Week 9

As they say, here goes nothing (*tiebreaker):

  • Alabama
  • Auburn
  • Baylor
  • Clemson
  • FSU*
  • Miami
  • Missouri
  • Ohio State
  • Oregon
  • Stanford

Also considered:  Arizona State, LSU, Oklahoma State, Texas A&M

Yes, my ballot didn’t change from last week’s.  And I continue to struggle with a Miami team that struggled with an inferior opponent for the second straight game before winning.  But the ‘Canes are still 7-0.  We’ll see if they show up against FSU.

It didn’t take thirty minutes to compile this week’s picks.  Yay for that!
