If you're like me, you have an awful lot of things to do to get ready for the first bona fide football weekend of the year. Ergo, you don't have a lot of time to review the happenings of the football Thursday that was. So I present to you a brief stream of consciousness romp through the night that was in college football . . .
LSU 45, Miss. St. 0: Maybe things were better when Sly Croom didn't even try to throw the football. . .There's at least a 20% chance that Sly drunk-dialed Jerious Norwood after the game . . . Michael Henig staying upright long enough to throw 6 interceptions may actually be progress over last season. But if I were him, I would sleep with my door locked for a while. Defensive players can be vengeful when they get blamed for giving up 45 points, and don't think it's their fault. . .If you sit still long enough in the cafeteria in Baton Rouge, Glenn Dorsey may chase you down and eat you. Whole. . .
Louisville 73, Murray State 10: So that's what bringing a knife to a gunfight looks like. . .I'm counting down the days until the Falcons select Brian Brohm in the NFL Draft, assuming Joey Harrington doesn't screw things up by, you know, winning football games. . .Every time I see Harry Douglas catch 5 passes for 151 yards, I wince at the fact that we couldn't keep him in state. . .
Boise State 56, Weber St.7: 28-0 at the end of the first quarter. That's akin to a baby seal clubbing which occurred during a gunfight in which one participant is armed only with a knife . . .Ian Johnson is sorta fast . . .Did you hear that he proposed to his cheerleader girlfriend after the Oklahoma game and that they actually got married? Yeah, me too. Over and over and over again . . .
Rutgers 38, Buffalo 3: Ray Rice is Ian Johnson, only single (at least so far as I know). . .Tiquan Underwood had 248 yards receiving in one night. As our leading wide receiver, MoMass had 366 all of last season. . .Rutgers averaged 8.8 yards per snap on offense. Understatement of the Night honors go to Buffalo Coach Turner Gill who sagely noted after the game that "We had a few busts in our coverage." Ya think?
