College Football Week 12 is in the books & here’s what I learned

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on November 16, 2008

minnisotagirls

Let’s be honest. Yesterday offered a plethora of crappy games. On the bright side my beloved VOLS didn’t lose, of course they didn’t play but that’s not the point.

Clemson light Duke up. One more win and they’re bowl eligible.

Will Ron Zook be asked to step down after losing yet another game?

Look out Notre Dame is now bowl eligible even though Navy had a chance to win it in the end. Charles Weis really needs to look into doing some push-ups.

Georgia and the penalties they accrue almost cost them the game against Auburn.

chompFlorida hammered South Carolina which is absolutely hilarious to me. Living in Columbia you should have heard all the things the Cock fans were saying. Deuce Staley actually said on his weekly radio talk show, “Carolina’s defense can match up with anyone’s speed in the country.” Really Deuce? You couldn’t tell from their performance yesterday.

I continuously laugh when I watch TV ads for other schools. And then a Florida ad comes on. “Go Gators. Go cure cancer.” Oh, that seems pretty simple. Tebow will take care of that in between circumcisions this off-season.

Does anyone really want to win the ACC?

Miami should be thanking Maryland for beating North Carolina.

Wisconsin discovered something called a forward pass and beat Minnesota with it.

Has anyone noticed that Nebraska is bowl eligible yet?

Missouri wins the Big 12 North…yes people that still exists.

Florida State couldn’t control penalties & Boston College’s running game at the same time.

It can be said: Vandy is bowl eligible. Kentucky might have been still mourning the humiliating loss the basketball received at the hands of VMI the night before.

Washington is still winless go figure.

Houston doesn’t have a problem as they rack up 70 points against Tulsa.

LSU almost embarrassed themselves and the SEC yesterday.

Michigan endures their first 8 loss season ever. I’m sure they’re glad they hired Rich Rodriguez now.

Gee…finding a replacement for Fulmer is going to be harder than what anyone expected

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on November 7, 2008

praisejesushn8As coaches line up to say no to Tennessee, I’m sure some fans are wondering why considering a job has not been offered to them. That’s really a simple question to answer. Whether you like it or not, in 10 years Fulmer will be revered as a legend. He’s already an institution and no body wants to be the guy to follow a legend. Just ask Ron Zook about that.

Steve God Spurrier, Butch Davis & David Cutcliff have all publicly said that they are not interested in the Tennessee coaching position.

It’s even gone so far that Charlie Sexton, the agent for both Fulmer and Butch Davis, has publicly said that Davis was staying put. Of course anything can happen and money talks.

I’m sure most of you know that Lane Kiffin was in Knoxville recently and was spotted playing golf with a prominent Tennessee booster. I hate to remind people of this but it means nothing.

ESPN’s PTI stated that John Gruden is rumored to be in Knoxville this weekend. Again even it that was true it means nothing.

Mike Hamilton the Tennessee AD stated yesterday that:

“I think it’s more important that you hire the right person than you put a timeframe on it,” Hamilton said on Thursday. “I do think that we’ll efficiently and expeditiously tie it up as quickly as possible but I’m more concerned about the who than how long.”

He is right of course but it’s also funny how on Monday he stated a new coach would be hired within a matter of weeks.

The bottom line is honestly the Tennessee job isn’t as appealing as some fans seem to think. It may not even be as appealing as some of the other jobs that are open this year.

How attractive is it to a candidate knowing Tennessee just fired a coach who has been there for 17 years and only had 2 bad seasons? The candidates can’t help but wonder what if they go 6-6 or 7-5; will they be the next one to go?

Whoever takes the Washington job will be held as great coach for going 6-6.

Though Clemson might have a stadium the size of ours they have a great fan base and a softer schedule that should propel them into a BCS bowl. Tennessee, on the other hand, plays in the SEC East which is the gold standard of college football.

Look at the requirements someone would need to have in order to be the new coach:

  • Leadership skills beyond norm: Must be battle tested to be a leader in the toughest conference in the country.
  • Recruiter: Enough of talking about not having the richest recruiting grounds. Must have energy and the ability to sell UT in any environment. UT used to recruit well even in GA & FL. If you have a winning program the recruits will come to UT
  • Character: This is without question the biggest part of replacing Fulmer that will be tough. We do not need the NCAA breathing down our necks, we do not want to continue to read about our players in the crime section more often than we do in the sports section. None of the win at all cost. We want a coach who leads by example and will not accept the tough discipline necessary to win in this conference.
  • Thinks outside the box: I know this is used too much these days but it is true more so today in college football than ever. The teams that are winning have expanded their play calling to become less predictable and keep there opposition guessing.
  • Passion: Must be passionate not only about winning but winning at UT. Needs to understand the tradition and how passionate one of if not the largest fan base is concerning their football team.
  • Thick Skinned: Face it if you coach here and you don’t come out the gate running you will be judged harshly. Beating GA, UF, UA, LSU, & AU is not an option. It is necessary in order to win the SEC and that is the low bar for this job. The high bar is of course a National Championship. A goal we believe we should at least be considered to have a chance at every year.

changesWith other coaching opportunities out there like Syracuse, Washington & whatever else might come open, you can see why finding a coach is a lot harder than you think.

Soon UT fans will forget the last few disappointing seasons and remember Fulmer in the big picture. The guy spent his life at UT and bled Orange. That is rare in these days of coaching carousels and contract buyouts.

As Tennessee fans we expect a lot from the coach and quite possibly we expect too much. Potential coaching candidates understand all this. So stop the talk about bringing in Butch Davis or Bob Stoops.

What are reasonable expectations for the Tennessee program, anyway?

Who knows maybe we will land Kiffin, Muschamp or even Gruden, but realize this, it’s possible they aren’t the right candidate to begin with.

Also realize that history shows us that whenever a coach like Fulmer is replaced it takes years to find the right replacement. Look how long Alabama had to wait before Stallings got there and look how long they waited after Stallings left before they found Saban.

Nebraska, Texas A&M are still searching for that coach. Oklahoma replaced Switzer with Gary Gibbs and Georgia replaced Dooley with Ray Goff.

Whatever the case may be one thing is certain, I wouldn’t want to be in the shoes a Mike Hamilton right now.

College Football Week 3 is in the books & here’s what I learned + an update on Joel!!

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on September 14, 2008

First off I have great news. Joel has more than survived his epic bout with Hurricane Ike. Joel suffered no damage however he does not power, but him and his family are safe & dry. He would like to thank all the people that were praying for him.

His next bout will be with the government over the fleecing of gas that has occurred with this hurricane. Did you know that oil prices actually dropped last Friday? Of course not because they spiked to a staggering amount. These refineries only produce 25% of this nation’s gas, and some of that is exported. Nevertheless gas should only go up by 25%, big government should step in but never will.

Ok I just had to get that off my chest. That will be one of few times you’ll see something political on this blog…unless I find some hot photos of Sarah Palin. Is so wrong to lust after a female running for vice president?

South Florida decided to show some Big East pride by beating Kansas. This was a great game. The Kansas QB is awesome. It would be foolish of teams in the NFL not to draft him. I don’t care how tall he is. Think how good Doug Flutie could have been. Trust me there are a lot of NFL teams kicking themselves for not drafting him because of his height.

The Kansas QB reminds me of Vince Young except not as tall, stronger, more accurate, and not suicidal and he isn’t whiner.

Hyped games like the Nuts verses the Contraceptives suck. The SoCal-Ohio State was b-o-r-i-n-g. Let’s face it. Right now SoCal is that good. I don’t care if Beanie Wells didn’t play. The score wouldn’t have changed that much.

Under hyped games rule!! Kansas-South Florida & Fresno State-Wisconsin were awesome games.

Georgia failed to impress. However some of you might remember back in August that I predicted that Garcia would make his debut in the Georgia game and I was right. Self ^5.

Oklahoma continues to impress as Ty Willingham might need to start packing his bags.

Missouri looks great!

LSU did what LSU was supposed to do and beat a nobody team convincingly.

Does Auburn have an offense or is the defense of Miss. State that good?

The Tide continues to roll and they will be rolling next week as they play the worst SEC team in Arkansas. And even though the Texas-Arkansas was postponed, Texas would have crushed them.

East Carolina pulls out a squeaker and the R-E-S-P-E-C-T factor is falling with them as it is with Georgia Tech as well.

People better watch out for Ole Miss and Nebraska.

Everyone point and laugh at the PAC 10 this week. Sure USC rolled and Oregon pulled out a miracle but Arizona State lost to UNLV, UCLA got ass raped by the Mormons of BYU, Cal lost to Maryland….that right there deserves a LOL.

The ACC isn’t fairing any better as well with Virginia losing to UCONN big. Remember UCONN struggled against Temple last week.

Cutcliff is winning at Duke though. Way to go Coach!

Oh La La almost pulled off another epic upset against Illinois yesterday.

Penn State looks impressive I mean very impressive.

Oklahoma State continues to roll and roll big.

OMG Kentucky is undefeated.

Utah continues to roll. How important will the Utah-BYU game this year?

The Notre Dame defense looks good then again it was against Michigan. However Charlie Weis is more man than Tom Brady by electing not to have surgery on his busted up leg. Get better Coach I hate to pick on gimps.

I have a post coming up about the Tennessee game.

Did anyone notice how Herbstreit finally admits Mark Sanchez will probably be a Heisman finalist after side stepping the question?

Finally has anyone noticed how eerily similar that USC QB Mark Sanchez resembles Richard Ramirez AKA the serial killer known as the Night Stalker? (Insert scary music here)

College Football Week 2 is in the books & here’s what I learned

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on September 7, 2008

First off everyone stop for a moment and point and laugh at the Big Least. The years of fooling the college football world with smoke and mirrors and weak scheduling are over.

WVU falls to East Carolina and it was never even close. Somewhere Rich Rodriguez is laughing because he never lost to East Carolina.

How hot is the name “Skip Holtz” right now? I’ve been to various teams message boards since yesterday and a lot teams whose coaches are in the hot seat want him. For example:…………………………………………………………………………………………………..

………………………………………………………………………..

  • South Carolina
  • Clemson
  • Tennessee
  • Syracuse
  • Arkansas
  • Louisville
  • Washington
  • Pittsburgh
  • Notre Dame

Speaking of Syracuse how is it pathetic to lose to Akron. Other Big Least fail boats are Uconn & Pittsburgh. Sure Uconn won yesterday but it took an overtime to beat Temple. Are you kidding me? And Pitt struggled with Buffalo.

The best team in the Big Least is Cincinnati. Sure they lost yesterday but it’s difficult to go to Oklahoma and win.

Oh yeah you can continue pointing and laughing at the ACC. Way to go Maryland.

Ohio State should drop in the polls due to their dismal performance against Ohio.

Miami will be scary good by the middle of this season. And what a rank amateur move it was on Urban Meyer’s part to kick that last field goal. He could have let Miami have the ball on the 10 yard line. That was disgraceful.

Something else that is disgraceful is the PAC 10 refs. What an idiotic call yesterday involving Washington and BYU.

Arkansas better step it up or they will not win a conference game all year.

Notre Dame Football still sucks. If San Diego St. didn’t make some stupid mistakes they would have won that game.

Under the raider teams

  • Nebraska
  • Mississippi (I always knew Coach 0 could recruit now they have a coach.)
  • Clemson they will bounce back
  • Air Force
  • F$U
  • Cal
  • Georgia Tech
  • Iowa
  • Purdue
  • Oklahoma State
  • Vandy
  • TCU
  • Kansas St.
  • Arizona
  • Indiana

Teams that impressed

  • East Carolina
  • Wisconsin
  • Georgia
  • Oregon
  • Kentucky
  • Cal
  • Miami in a loss that game was closer than what the score dictates
  • Texas
  • Oklahoma
  • Missouri
  • TCU

Teams that failed to impress

  • Ohio State
  • Michigan
  • Illinois
  • Auburn
  • Texas A&M
  • Arkansas
  • Alabama
  • Kansas
  • South Florida
  • Utah
  • Texas Tech.
  • Texas

Schools that might be looking a new coach next year

  • Arkansas
  • Syracuse (that guy is a goner)
  • Pitt (him to)
  • Texas A&M
  • Tennessee (I had to)
  • Michigan
  • Washington
  • Colorado
  • Notre Dame
  • Virginia
  • Maryland
  • Memphis
  • Louisville

Even the water girls of Ole Miss are hotties much like their cheerleaders.

The Miami cheerleaders are hot in a soft-core porn sort of way

Georgia’s cheerleaders are so-so

Resume Watch

Posted by Joel Jackson on September 5, 2008

I know it is early in the college football landscape, but after this weekend’s orgy of football watching, there were two coaches who stood above the pile of horrible coaching. One of these guys should have been gone last year, and the other one will be gone due to a difficult schedule & young players.

Dave Wannstedt: Some say he should have been gone last year, even with the win against West Virginia. Some say he should not have been hired at all, especially if you look at his “success” with the Chicago Bears & Miami Dolphins. He has shown that he can recruit but cannot coach. Not a good combination, especially in the cream puff heavy Big East. At the very least, with the facilities and boosters that Pitt has, the Panthers should be just behind West Virginia and South Florida. Alas, they are busy pillow fighting with UConn for mediocrity. I would hire him as a defensive coach/recruiting coordinator when he gets fired but nothing more. He should not have gotten this head coaching job in the first place.

Ty Willingham: This one hurts to write. I think Ty Willingham is a good coach who got the shaft at that blasphemous school in South Bend. But he has a young team that got throttled in the second half of Saturday’s game vs. Oregon. Now the Pac-10 is a good conference. Besides USC, you have those tree hugging hippies at Cal, Uncle Phil’s Nike money at Oregon, hot chicks at Arizona St. (to entice recruits), and an up and coming UCLA team. In other words, Willingham can’t be bad. He has a good young QB in Jake Locker, but from what I saw Saturday, they need receivers that can catch more than staph infections. The team is young, and looking at the schedule for the rest of the year, I see 10 losses easily. No way the alums in Seattle go for that.

There are others that I could have put on here like Greg Robinson of Syracuse or Chuck Long of San Diego St. but these were 2 games that I saw glaring needs of regime change.

Forbes 20 Most Valuable College Football Team$

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on November 29, 2007

I hate Forbes, I really do. However I’m working mad OT at work and I’m tired so I’m going to write about this. I’ll be working mad OT next week as well.

Forbes has ranked the 20 most valuable football teams. By valuable they mean money wise. Let’s look at their list.

  1. Notre Lame Dame. Value 101 Million. Clearly there’s a lot of morons out there who pull for losing teams.
  2. Texas. Value 92 Million. Thank part-time pot head Matthew McConaughey for that.
  3. Georgia Value 90 Million. Might be third on Forbes list but second in SEC east. (Snicker)
  4. Michigan Value 85 Million. That number might drop after the Appy State loss.
  5. Florida Value 84 Million. I wonder if that includes the stolen items and drug money.
  6. LSU Value 76 Million. People love corndogs, at least their fans love smelling like them.
  7. The Good Guys. Tennessee Value 74 Million GO VOLS!
  8. Auburn Value 73 Million. War (Cha Ching) Eagle
  9. Satan’s team Alabama Value 72 Million. Even at this Auburn beats them.
  10. Ohio State Value71 Million. They’re used to losing to SEC teams.
  11. Oklahoma Value 70 Million. Let’s see Mike Gundy yell about that.
  12. South Carolina Value 69 Million. WTF? Does Forbes know they’re operating in red?
  13. Penn State Value 69 Million. Even though it’s the same value as Carolina, Forbes has sense enough to rank Carolina higher.
  14. USC (The one that wins championships Value 53 Million. My my my that’s not good.
  15. Arkansas Value 53 Million. I wonder if that number will go up after a new coach is hired.
  16. Texas A&M Value 50 Million. This number should skyrocket since that prick Coach Fran is gone.
  17. Washington Value 50 Million. No not the Redskins, but Pac 10 Huskies.
  18. Nebraska Value 49 Million. Callahan has ruined that program more ways than one.
  19. Michigan State Value 44 Million. WTF? They have fans? If so why?
  20. Wisconsin Value 43 Million. Cheese makes more money.

Notice anything? I did. No ACC teams and praise God no West Virginia & no Big Least teams period. Six of top ten were SEC schools. That conference rules in more ways than one.

So I profess on this day 11/29/07

The Revelations After a Saturdays Worth of Football Week 5

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on September 30, 2007

Wow upset Saturday has come and gone. So for fun I’m going rate each upset with a scale going from 1-10. One being not that big of an upset and 10 being holy shit God must hate that team upset.

  • #5 West Virginia @ #18 South Florida. Upset factor 6. It was a home game and WVU hadn’t played anyone worth a damn all season, plus South Florida just has their number.
  • #21 Penn State @ Illinois. Upset factor 7. Even though I would have picked Penn State to win this game, if you recall I did mention in Week 1 that the Fighting Zookers Illini were getting better and it will show this season.
  • #3 Oklahoma @ Colorado. Upset factor 10. In week one I stated that this Buffalo team would be a force in 4 years, but after this game it will be more like 2. Bob Stoops is probably pissed off and shocked right now, so maybe he’s thinking of going somewhere else, like say Tennessee. 🙂
  • Kansas State @ #7 Texas. Upset factor 5. If it wasn’t for the fact that this was a home game for Texas the factor would have been lower. I’ve been saying all year that Texas is highly overrated, because they have been flirting with disaster all season. This is a good K-State team, they gave Auburn all they could handle earlier this year, plus they beat Texas last year.
  • #13 Clemson @ Ga. Tech. Upset factor 4. It was home game for Tech, and Clemson always falls apart right about now. Not to mention that Chance was back in the lineup & Tech is a completely different team when he is leading them on the field.
  • Maryland @ 10 Rutgers. Upset factor 5. Only the fact that this was a road game raises the factor to 5. By all accounts one can make the claim that Maryland could have been 3-1 going into this game. Rutgers hadn’t played a team with a pulse all season. It’s funny everyone was talking about Rutgers being the team the beat in the Big Least, I guess Maryland proved them wrong.
  • #22 Alabama @ Florida State. Upset factor 1. Alabama had no business being ranked to begin with. Plus was a neutral field in Jacksonville. Which really means 80% of those attending were FSU fans.
  • Auburn @ #4 Florida. Upset factor 7. I know shocking right? As previously stated in the posting about the game, Turbeville is one of the best road coaches in the country. Turbeville is to Florida as Spurrier is to Tennessee.

Other things I noticed

If USC (the one that wins titles) keeps making mistakes like they did last night, they will not survive their PAC 10 road schedule.

With all due respect to Minnesota, Ohio State & ESPN 2, no one cares about this game!! You could have shown a better game like Georgia & Ole Miss.

Wisconsin incredibility is still the team to beat in the Big Eleven Ten.

Though they lost Michigan State will still have a great season.

Woodson for Heisman! Woodson for Heisman!

Notre Dame is 0-5. They might be able to afford to fire Charlie “the Jabba” Weis, but I’m sure the athletic director of Notre Dame, the same one that fired Willingham, is feeling the noose tighten around his neck.

Oh look Iowa lost again. That’s because they SUCK!

Dave Wannstedt should be calling a moving company right about now.

Washington has some homely looking cheerleaders.

Texas Tech worked out any sexual frustrations they might have had by scoring 75 points.

I see Mike “I’m a man I’m 40!” Gundy’s whipped lowly Sam Houston State.

There could be a QB controversy brewing at Notre Dame.

I received my first injury of this football season by dropping the remote on my foot. Don’t worry I’ll tough it out.

 

Right now South Florida is the number

one team in the state of Florida!!!! 😉

So I profess on this day 9/30/07.

Charlie Weis is Still Optimistic While Touchdown Jesus Weeps.

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on September 24, 2007

The state of Notre Dame football is a sad one indeed. Whether you’re a Tennessee fan or a Michigan fan this season so far has been dreadful, but those fans still have hope because their favorite team isn’t team isn’t Notre Dame. For the first time ever in it’s history, the Notre Dame football program is 0-4. Jimmy “the Emu” Clausen has yet to throw for a touchdown, and yet Jabba the Weis remains optimistic, while Rudy is cursing him I’m sure.

“Coach Charlie Weis sees reason for optimism even though the Fighting Irish (0-4) are off to their worst start ever. He saw reason to believe in the way the Irish played in a 31-14 loss to Michigan State on Saturday. He saw even more reason to believe after seeing the way his players reacted following the loss.

“It’s probably the first time this year that I saw so many players that were moved by the game,” Weis said Sunday. “That is more than anything else the one thing people don’t get a chance to see and that’s probably the greatest reason for optimism — how much they care.”

They “care” because the first three games were against what was perceived to be legitimate upper tiered teams, Michigan State isn’t yet. Charlie your team lost to the team that lost to Appalachian State for heavens sake. Leave the moral victories for the less established teams.

“Weis has been watching closely for players who might be ready to give up. After all, they are facing a lot of adversity. The Irish have dropped six straight going back to last season, giving up at least 30 points in each defeat, and the 17-point loss to the Spartans was the least-lopsided loss in the streak.

Weis conceded it’s impossible after the game to read the emotion of every player. So he had a message in the locker room for anyone who might be ready to give up on the season.

“I said, ‘Fellas, you’re either all in or all out. It’s got to be one or the other”‘ he said. “I said, ‘The boat is going to sail with you or without you. It’s OK if you want to be out. But you’re either all in or all out.”

Hmm…Jones wants out and yet the AD was at point making it hard for him. With the rumor of you are headed to the Giants after this season and the fact realistically Notre Dame can 0-8, I’m sure there’s more players who want out. While no one can blame Clausen alone for the problems this offense is having, he was 7 of 13 passing for 53 yards and sacked 3 times. As I keep saying over and over again, it sounds like a line problem.

The bigger issue facing Notre Dame is the blatant double standard that they have set upon themselves. How do you keep Weis beyond a third season when you fired Willingham in his third season? I seem to recall athletic director Kevin White explaining the firing this way, while praising Willingham’s “impeccable integrity and tremendous character” as a university representative: “From Sunday through Friday, our football program has exceeded all expectations in every way, but on Saturday, we struggled.”

The third season usually defines a Notre Dame football coach. Five Irish legends — Knute Rockne, Frank Leahy, Ara Parseghian, Dan Devine and Lou Holtz — each won an outright national title or a share in Season No. 3. Willingham was fired in his third season.

Charlie Weis? He’ll be remembered as the funeral director the year Notre Dame football died a death of 2-10 if this keeps up. I was watching some the Washington Huskies game last Saturday and the announcers were commenting on how happy Tyrone looks, I remember saying “He looks happy because of Notre Dames’ record.” who can really blame him at this point?

So I profess on this day 9/24/07.

The Revelations After a Saturdays Worth of Football Week 4

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on September 23, 2007

First I would like to apologize for not updating until now. I haven’t felt well all day.

Here are my revelations after yesterdays batch of college football games.

Why is Hawaii even ranked?

Appalachian State beat Michigan, who beat Notre Dame, but Appy State lost to Wofford, so I guess Wofford can beat anyone.

Huge QB controversy for South Carolina, God Spurrier already announced that Mitchell wouldn’t be starting next week. <snicker>

Ole Miss still sucks, but Tennessee suck worse.

Even though Tennessee won yesterday while showing more offense I think Fulmer needs to be replaced. Like Chaz Michael Michaels from “Blade of Glory” said “I’m never satisfied, it’s a curse”.

Oh gee Iowa lost again…go figure.

Notre Dame scored an offensive touchdown!! This is not a drill repeat this is not a drill!

The Third Richt steals a victory in OT at Alabama, God that was sweet. Somewhere Pat Dye is laughing.

Yankees suck!!! Go Boston!!!! I know it isn’t college football related, but it needed to be said.

I think it would he hilarious if Michigan won the Big Eleven Ten

Louisville HAD a 20 game home winning streak broken by Syracuse. The power of the orange lives on.

I bet Joe Pa is pissed after the 9th straight lose to Meechigan.

Kentucky is for real folks.

Are those bags packed yet Houston Nutt?

Georgia Tech you looked good for the first 2 games, what the hell happened?

Auburn welcome back to winning, but you’re still a loser.

I’ve determined Wisconsin plays at the ability of their opponents and not above them.

Michigan State is a dark horse right now.

Oregon can out score Cal.

West Virginia’s first real test of the season come this Friday night.

Texas found their offense again.

Is there a hat that Les Miles can wear without looking like a Catholic Pontiff?

Pitt might be looking for a new football coach along with a new AD after this season.

Nebraska…Ball State…at home…WTF?

Erik Anige continues to have a great year.

Direct TV sucks compared to cable…I’ve never lost reception during a storm with cable.

Cincinnati is 4-0 are they a dark horse?

The road to the ACC title goes through Clemson this year.

If Noel Divine can get spared from getting arrested, he might have a bright future.

What the hell was ESPN’s Mike Patrick thinking? Just watch the video to see what I’m talking about.

So I profess on this day 9/23/07.

The Revelations After a Saturdays Worth of Football Week 3

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on September 16, 2007

Yesterday was a bad day & it will show in this post, but here are my revelations, after being forced against my will, of watching football yesterday.

A band of one legged midgets could rush for 300 yards against Tennessee’s defense.

Mississippi State has a lot of young talent.

Even though Tommy Tuberville voiced his opinion that Croom shouldn’t be fired after this season (I agree with with him), you have to wonder if he would have voiced it knowing he was going to lose at home against him.

Iowa sucks.

Ole Miss still sucks

Nebraska wasn’t ready for USC, I know the Gridiron Goddess is happy.

Nick Satan Saban looks like an arrogant fuck on the sidelines.

Just how good is Matt Ryan?

Kentucky is a blue state, the Big East winning streak against the SEC has been snapped.

Texas is highly overrated.

Welcome back to losers’ville UCLA we’ve missed you.

From what I saw the Nebraska cheerleaders were U-G-L-Y they ain’t got no alibi they ugly, they ugly.

New Hampshire beat Marshall what does that say about the Big East?

Just how red and sunburned can George O’Leary get?

As always the SEC officials suck.

I hate my cable company because they took ESPN Classic off the air, so I couldn’t watch the Kentucky-Louisville game.

The more I hear him speak, the more my distain for Lou’ser Holtz grows.

Duke is now allowed to leave losers’ville, Notre Dame enters.

Oklahoma continues to dominate.

Oregon is scary good.

Wisconsin’s defense is like Tennessee’s nonexistent.

Will Rutgers ever play a team with a pulse?

Washington isn’t there yet and WTF is up with having the word “Dawgs” on the front of the helmets? The only Dawgs are Georgia. You’re the Huskies.

Houston Nutt are you packing your bags yet?

So I profess on this day 9/16/07.
