What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions
Ohio State Gets Pushed Around Again
It doesn’t matter how long you lead the game, it is who leads at the end that matters. Everybody else is focused on the Ohio State Pentitentiary University coughing up its fifth straight loss against a Top 5 opponent, but it matters more why they lost. When it came down to “Do you have a pair or not?” time, the Buckeyes got knocked onto their heels in the last minute for another game-costing 86-yard touchdown drive.
Ask yourself this question: When you have a situation where have you have dropped out of the Top 10 and you are going to be bashed constantly by the national media, would you like your star quarterback to a) show some leadership and play arole leading the team to its next win or b) adding fuel to the fire by saying something really stupid?
“Not everybody’s the perfect person in the world,” he said. “I mean everyone kills people, murders people, steals from you, steals from me, whatever. I think that people need a second chance, and I’ve always looked up to Mike Vick, and I always will.”
While this sort of lawlessness may be the norm in Columbus, one must be at least media-savvy enough to realize what an incredibly dunder-headed thing to say. This will all be gone soon, as the Buckeyes look to cruise until The End of Days – their November 7th date with Armageddon.
Notre Dame vs Michigan – Big 12 Game of the Week
If it hadn’t been for the uniform colors, I would have sworn this was a Big 12 game. Two over-rated teams slinging the ball around safe in the knowledge their “defense” will give up at least 30 points. One team exposes the other, but ultimately both will be seen for the turds they are. Saturday, Notre Dame played “sinker” to the Wolverine “floater,” but both are headed on the same downward spiral.
There’s Hope in West Lafayette
With the light-bending gravitational media pull generated by some other Big Eleven Ten vs. Pac-10 matchup, most of you likely didn’t notice that Purdue’s Ralph Bolden has become the nation’s leading rusher. What the hell does that matter in Week 2? It means Hope is more than the latest wearer of Joe Tiller’s Mustache.
Don’t look now, but the Boilers dominated a MAC team good enough to destroy another big-conference bottom dweller and damn near pulled off a win on the road at one of the toughest venues in all of college football. Based on what the last two weeks have showed us, the real test of Hope comes at the end of September when Notre Dame comes to West Laffatucky, a land of possums trapped with beer coolers (“because that’s all we had!”) and where only the scrawniest of house pets are flung into dumpsters (the others meet their maker on a Weber grill).
Nothing would get those Boilers beating on that ridiculous giant drum they love so much more than to visit some defeat on the Golden Domers. As long as Giant Drum A&M Purdue can run the rock, and if the defense can keep it under 20 (probably easier with some of the plowhorse offenses in the Big Ten), anything up to six wins is at least plausible.
I don’t know If I said it already but …Great site…keep up the good work. 🙂 I read a lot of blogs on a daily basis and for the most part, people lack substance but, I just wanted to make a quick comment to say I’m glad I found your blog. Thanks, 🙂
A definite great read..Jim Bean
Thanks, Jim Bean…oh the irony in the fact that changing one letter in your name brings us to the real inspiration for these rants 🙂
