Just another weekend

Believe it or not, there was other football played yesterday besides what we suffered through.  A few observations from yesterday’s action:

  • Is it possible to have three Upsets of teh Century in the same season?
  • From “the more things change, the more they stay the same” department:  after the first weekend in October, the two coaches in the SEC East in control of their destinies are Phil Fulmer and Steve Spurrier.
  • I’m beginning to think that God loves Les Miles.  Why, though, is a complete mystery to me.
  • South Florida will be a top five team later on today.  If things hold up, the Bulls will play Cincinnati for a BCS berth.  Lots of folks saw that coming, right?
  • It looks like somebody remembered to make sure Auburn got its wakeup call for an 11:30 AM game.
  • I bet ESPN is just thrilled with its titanic Georgia-Vandy matchup for the bottom of the SEC East this week.  It’ll serve us right if the WWL assigns Pam Ward to call the game.
  • Yeah, there are still two undefeated teams in the Big 12.  It’s just that they’re Kansas and Missouri.
  • Notre Dame won with 140 yards of total offense, which means that Charlie Weis is a genius again.  UCLA turned the ball over seven times, which means that Karl Dorrell is out of a job at season’s end.

And so it goes…

    The argument for not ranking anyone until October 1st seems like a good idea. But after what has transpired thus far in ’07, I don’t think there is a soul out there who has a clear guage on who is really that good, that bad, or somewhere inbetwixt…

    As for Les Miles: Don’t worry. He’ll find a way to screw up his road to the Mythical National Championship before it is all said and done.

  2. Pam Ward? Say it and so. That is the football equivalent to having the Navy send you to Diego Garcia for a one year tour. Nobody deserves it, but somebody draws the short straw anyway.

    Dirk, I’ve got to tell you, I’m not so sure about that. Who in his right mind challenges a nine yard spot that risks his final timeout with over ten minutes left in the biggest game of the year? And he got away with it!

    Hell, in the end it was Urban Meyer who made the painful coaching gaffe by not managing his timeouts correctly.

    This is turning out to be one weird year.
