Anyone see that whupping the Canes gave to the Gators tonight? 41-16!!! Rex Chokeman got pounded into the ground all night long, and UM had 306 yards rushing. My Canes are well on their way to repeating as national champs!
Yo, it's me, it's me, it's (points to self) P-A-B!
Wow. Someone got HURT today. Although the more impressive performances (based solely on numbers, not on level of competition) were by two QB's, one of whom plays on Kentucky (forgot the other). Five TD's each... on only 10 completions. Kentucky's QB threw for over 300 yards, the other only went for 200. But DAMN. Ten completions, five go for TD's?
Let's go Badgers! 34-17 is a nice score for a game in which I wasn't all that impressed with our play. For the curious few, the damn WVU mascot DID bring his musket, and he DID fire it, but only twice that I can recall, and it was pretty frickin' lame. He should've left it at home.
My fun time starts in 2 weeks when UC gets to play Ohio State!.. I'm thinking we are gonna lose...but it is gonna be a fun event! We almost beat the Buckeyes in Columbus a few years back. that's a weak woohoo!
The Gators really let me down yesterday, I was really expecting them to give Miami a better run, especially considering the fact that they beat a better team by a more decisive margin in the first week of play. As an FSU student I can't stand either team but I think Miami losing in the swamp would have taken a little bit of the Canes momentum away. They are a dominant team and I can't wait to see what happens when we go down to the Orange Bowl. With Oklahoma's performance yesterday and a few weird performances by ranked teams it will be interesting to see how the poles shift.
UF plummets 7 spots, but other than that, there wasn't a whole lot of movement in the Coaches' Poll.
That was a beautiful afternoon of football yesterday. I still can't believe Notre Dame is undefeated, yet hasn't scored an offensive touchdown yet. That'll have to change in a hurry with Michigan coming to town.
Miami really impressed me yesterday too, save the amount of penalties. 14 flags for 134 yards. Ouch. Other than that, wow. I'm *so* glad Miami isn't on our schedule this year. Of course, Nebraska comes to town Saturday night - I'm scared.
Anyone catch the end of the BC/Stanford game? That gets my vote for most unusual coaching call at the end of a game. Down a TD with 36 seconds left, Stanford starts on its own 20 with all three time-outs remaining. They throw three straight times to the sidelines, which BC had anticipated, so they get *maybe* 8 yards total. You've got your time outs, why not open the field, get a completion around the 50 in the wide-open middle, and call a time out? It forces the defense to play the whole field and then your receivers aren't stuck in double coverage. Might as well try to force OT.

...Marcus Mariota! Congratulations for being the first winner from your school, and for the 90.9% of the vote received. He has been an exciting player to watch, and I have to admit I'm not looking forward to next year without him.
