Halftime at the Swamp

I really like the way Florida is gashing the UT defense out of the I-formation.  Corch Meyers must be saving Tebow under center for the second half.

Go Gator!

Stewart Mandel, master of logic

He’s picking Arkansas to win today, which is no big deal, as lots of folks are.  But how to make sense of his reasoning?

All we really know about the Razorbacks at this point is that quarterback Ryan Mallett leads the nation in pass efficiency after going 17-of-22 for 309 yards against Missouri State. So this pick has less to do with Arkansas and more to do with Georgia, which is littered with question marks following its two games against respectable foes.

In other words, Arkansas is a mystery, but he’s picking them because the Dawgs have lots of question marks.  That’s some deep insight.

He gets paid for this.  You have to admire the guy for that.

Tennessee-Florida: somebody’s gonna be disappointed.

The Vols scoff at today’s betting line.

Meanwhile, former Gator Channing Crowder scoffs at the Vols.

Too bad we can’t harness stupidity as an alternate energy source.

Joe Barton is one of the brightest stars in the firmament of elected officials seeking to right the wrongs of the BCS.  His supporters in the fight for a playoff are legion.

And it’s not hard to see why, when you observe the intellectual power of the man.  Take, for example, his brilliant exposé of wind power (Barton is as equally passionate about opposing global warning fears as he is the BCS):

Wind is God’s way of balancing heat. Wind is the way you shift heat from areas where it’s hotter to areas where it’s cooler. That’s what wind is. Wouldn’t it be ironic if in the interest of global warming we mandated massive switches to energy, which is a finite resource, which slows the winds down, which causes the temperature to go up? Now, I’m not saying that’s going to happen, Mr. Chairman, but that is definitely something on the massive scale. I mean, it does make some sense. You stop something, you can’t transfer that heat, and the heat goes up. It’s just something to think about.

My head hurts.

The line to the cliff forms on the left, lemmings.
