My only surprise in reading this article is this: “The man was not cited.”
C’mon, A-CCPD. If you ain’t citing, you ain’t trying. Just ask Jimmy.
I was gonna go down that path, tongue planted firmly in cheek, but I see the AJ-C already beat me to the punch.
Except they’re being serious. Loosen up, guys!
I gather the reason for the heaving bosoms from criticism about the lack of class being shown Aaron Murray is because they believe Josh Nesbitt received a deliberate injury in the 2009 loss at the hands of Georgia’s players. Any excuse for an embarrassing loss will do, I suppose, but it’s not like they have to look very far for a rebuttal.
Bless their little insectile hearts.
From Saturday’s game:
Man, I love watching him play.
Will Muschamp’s got the license plate number of the semi that hit his defense Saturday.
“That’s what the option does — it takes talent out of the game. You don’t have to block Dante Fowler now. You option off Dante Fowler. You don’t have to account for him anymore in the blocking,” Muschamp said.
“That’s why the service academies run it, that’s why they run it, that’s why a lot of these schools run it, because it takes talent out of the equation. A lot of talented guys don’t like having somebody at their knees every snap, either. That’s part of why they run it. Talent’s negated in that situation. It doesn’t really matter because you don’t have to block a lot of the guys.”
Somewhere in Atlanta, Paul Johnson is taking time out from his preparation for the Georgia game to call his AD about scheduling a game with Florida.
Man, the Pac-12 isn’t making it easy, is it. Here’s my top ten for this week (*tiebreaker):
Also considered: Oregon, Wisconsin
Back to struggling. With that road win over UCLA, I couldn’t leave Arizona State out of my top ten anymore. And I couldn’t quite bring myself to vote Baylor out of the top ten for losing to a Oklahoma State team that lost to a West Virginia team that got waxed by the Bears. That left me knocking Oregon and Wisconsin out, just barely.
If there’s any consolation, there are a bunch of huge games this week that should sort things out to some extent. Of course, that’ll probably mean I’ll spend thirty minutes again putting a ballot together.
