Football Thursday Night: A Stream of Consciousness Review.

New, 5 comments

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?
