(This post, which had been put up a scant FIFTY-ONE MINUTES  prior to the stroke of midnight Central Time, was deleted so that I could delay my settling down for the night and put it back up with a timestamp of 9/12/07, just so some  whiny ass-ettes might be pacified and hence not make too much noice whilst banging their sippy cups.  (Incidentally, at the time of the original posting, it was already 9/12/07 in the Eastern Time Zone, but I guess that doesn’t mean much to some people.Oh, and never mind that the previous  post had scant little to do with 9/11, save for its title.  Guess that  escaped said sippy-cup banger’s notice, too.  -S.))

There are times I like being wrong. Such as when I predict a close game for my team, and they subsequently blow out their opponent.

Arlington Heights 10, Birdville 52
TCU 13, Texas Professional University 34
UBuffalo 42, Temple 7
Oklahoma 51, Miami 13
LSU 48, Virginia Tech 7
Dallas 45, New York Football Giants 35

I guess Temple really is that bad. The Bulls scored on the first play of the game and never looked back. It was so bad, Temple was held to -36 - yes, minus-thirty-six - yards rushing for the day.

Turner Gill’s reward for his fine work Saturday…is a trip to Happy Valley next Saturday to play JoePa and the Nittany Lions of Penn State. Can’t wait to see what that line is.

I figured that Virginia Tech’s offense had to be good enough to make at least a dent in Bo Pelini’s LSU defense.

Some dent.

LSU had a 24-0 lead after the first 18 minutes and outgained Tech 327-40 in the first half

Damn. Just, damn.

Tell you what, guys - Pelini’s gonna have a coaching job in the NFL before too long if this keeps up, never mind a college head coaching gig.

This is to be expected when you bring a young-ish team into Royal Memorial Stadium.

TCU not only led at halftime, they’d shut out The Biggest Payroll in College Football Today™ (Note to T-sip Shortdicks everywhere: That’s my First Amendment-guaranteed opinion, so take your libel lawsuits and shove ‘em up your asses) - and not many teams do that in Austin, period.

But even though the Frogs played TU tough, the meltdown was bound to happen - and happen it did, beginning in the third and getting out of control in the fourth.

Turnovers (four in all) plagued the Frogs; one fumble by punter Derek Wash led directly to a TU touchdown; another fumble led to a TU touchdown drive.

My consolation is this: TU is gonna get fuckin’ shellacked by OU.

Memo to Mack Brown: Uh, oh.

In like fashion to the LSU-Va Tech matchup, I was wrong about Miami being anywhere near good enough to stop the latest OU juggernaut.

OU has finally found its answer at quarterback - and when all’s said & done, he might be better than Vinnie Young ever thought of being.

Sam Bradford threw for five touchdowns (three to wideout Malcolm Kelly) and a Miami fumble led directly to another score as the Sooners rolled.

Anyone notice who was flailing his arms on that second Burress touchdown? That’s right - Widdle Woy Willie. Can’t blame that one on Aaron Glenn, now can you, Roy-Boy?

Not that it mattered. Much. NY’s secondary appears to be every bit as bad as Dallas’. Romo went 15-of-24 for 345 and 4 TDs (two to Widdle Terri Owens) as the Dallas offense put up its biggest opening-day numbers in over 35 years.

However, things are not all peaches & cream at (Hidden) Valley Ranch. Eli Manning threw for 312 himself on 28-of-41; in fact, it could be argued that the Giants lost because they weren’t going to their receivers enough. All night long it seemed like NY-pitch-and-catch in front of a banged up Cowboy secondary. Backup Jacques Reeves had one pick, but they were giving Plaxico Burress and Amani Toomer plenty of room to operate all night long.

And I’m ready to get rid of Tyson Thompson. He’s had three years here and he still hasn’t figured out how to hang on to the ball. The bozo was directly responsible for three Giant points when he fumbled a kickoff near the end of the first half.

Still, a win is a win is a win. And I’d rather be 1-0 than tied with Philthy at 0-1.

This week’s record: 4-2. Overall: 9-2.

The PFW will turn around and come right back tomorrow, as we get an early start on things.

    Spats,

    First, a little gloating.

    I told you Temple was bad, didn’t I, huh? Didn’t I???? I can’t hear you, Spats. Repeat after me: TEMPLE SUCKS WIND!!! And this weekend, Buffalo becomes snack food for the Lions. So, like I said, enjoy the win, as Buffalo is going to be lion chow.

    Now, for a bit of anger.

    The Eagles’ punt returners are a bunch of morons. Bad enough one (Lewis) did not have enough sense to either call for a fair catch, or to just let the ball drop, thus avoiding that muff that turned into one of the most ridiculous touchdowns I have even seen in my life. But then for his replacement at the end of the game to not have enough sense to not try and touch the football without being sure he’ll catch it. (Yeah, yeah, I know he tripped over his own feet. But that is no excuse!!!! If he couldn’t make the play, leave the freaking pigskin alone!!!!) God, that’s 10 gift points to a team who had no running game, and an air attack that wasn’t there for most of the game. Let’s see, how many TDs did Brett have? Oh yeah, Zip, Zilch, Na-Da, NONEEEEEE!!!!!!!! He got only close enough for field goals, and that was only one that wasn’t because of a turnover. So, on his own, he got only 3 POINTS!!!

    GOD, I am so poed with those special team morons. I hope the guy that they’re getting will be as sure handed as he was in the past.

    LSU ran the same slant pass against VT that the NY Feetball Gnats could have all night, and it’s probably still open. leoni2, give the punt returners a break, we ALL know how pesky those yard lines can be to run over. That had to be what was tripping them up, it sure as hell wasn’t the punt coverage.

    And, uh, TEMPLE SUCKS WIND!

    And Spats, I’m quivering with anticipation for your analysis of this weekends Plowgirlz contest.(Sorry for the mental image, it’s getting closer to Halloween and it brings out the Rocky Horror in me.)

    C’mon, sing along!

    Hail to the Redskin!

    Spats:

    I figured that Virginia Tech’s offense had to be good enough to make at least a dent in Bo Pelini’s LSU defense.

    I think LSU plays in the Championship game this year. They have absolutely destroyed two teams this year, one which was a top ten team before they came to Louisiana. They still have some rough games coming up, but I only see two real challenges:

    Home with Florida (#5, 2-0) on Oct 6. I anticipate the Gators will probably be the SEC East champion, so look for these two to meet again the first week of December.

    Home with South Carolina (#17, 2-0) on Sept 22. SC has been a joke in the SEC for about the last, oh, 105 years, or so. Now, Steve Superior’s boys are finally starting to get an offense to go with the defense they have had for the last few seasons. Much as I really don’t like the Ol’ Ball Coach (let’s not mention the crap he did to the ‘Skins a few seasons ago, please), he really is a good College Coach, and the Gamecocks seem to be having a great year.

    Additionally, they have to go visit Alabama on November 3. The tide is unranked, but 2-0, and these two SEC West teams hate each other. Then Arkansas (#16, 1-0) comes to town on November 24. See remarks on Alabama.

    They don’t play Tennessee or Georgia this year, but they have enough Quality Opponents to keep their rankings up (provided they don’t seriously step on their cranks), and USC ain’t gonna survive at the top of the rankings.

    BCS Championship prediction:

    LSU v. Oklahoma (provided, of course the Sooners survive the Big 12 Championship agin Nebraska).

    “TU is gonna get fuckin’ shellacked by OU.”

    Not gonna happen, hanging 30 on Miami this year doesn’t prove anything. Definite props in order for the Freshman at the helm but a little early to be jerkin him off to the tune of Vinnie. Texas absolutely dominated that second half, and almost single handedly covered the over. Playing UCF this weekend with one of last years worst defenses, look for Texas to pick up where they left off then they’re playing at home until the Texas OU game against Rice (Baylor hung 42 on Rice?) and KS. all the while OU will be on the road and then driving to Texas to play UT.
    Should be a good game, but shallak’n aint happen’n.

    I told you Temple was bad, didn’t I, huh? Didn’t I???? I can’t hear you, Spats. Repeat after me: TEMPLE SUCKS WIND!!!

    As I said previously, Leo, it’s not that I have any faith at all in Temple - it’s that I have even less faith in Buffalo.  (Why do you think I institute my special line for their games, hm? (grin))

    Hard to imagine that, at one time, Turner Gill was a candidate for the Nebraska head coaching position.  Talk about penthouse-to-outhouse…!

    And this weekend, Buffalo becomes snack food for the Lions. So, like I said, enjoy the win, as Buffalo is going to be lion chow.

    Oh, I already know that.  I’m just hoping they keep it within 50.

    Sorry Vulcanrider,

    leoni2, give the punt returners a break, we ALL know how pesky those yard lines can be to run over. That had to be what was tripping them up, it sure as hell wasn’t the punt coverage.

    But I’m a Philadelphia sports fan, one of the nasty boo birds who would boos a loser at an easter egg hunt. I refuse to give those, those, those, morons a break. They’re just lucky they haven’t been tarred and feathered and ran out of Philly while riding a rail. Coverage or no coverage, the punt returner is still the one who still needs to determine whether its worth catching the football while several 300 pounder rhinos are coming at him to do their best ‘Hulk Smash puny human’ immitation on him. And sorry, Lewis screw it up the first time, and nearly repeated it the last time he got the football. And his replacement, well, let’s just say twinkletoes he wasn’t and leave it at this.

    Someone is going to have to pay for that embarrasment!!! Hopefully it’ll be the next opponent! :em08:

    The massacre references for the LSU v. VTech, well, massacre are so tasteless they even give me the willies. National Championship in NOLA this year and it’s LSU and ?, OU, USC? LSU didn’t need it, but getting a couple of their toughest games at home really takes the edge off–they don’t call Tiger Stadium “Death Valley” for nothin’, cher! If you haven’t been there, you have absolutely no idea! You don’t really hear the crowd noise, you’re pummeled by it. On the field, it’s like a dose of double gravity for the visiting team. All hail Mike VI!

    (This post, which had been put up a scant FIFTY-ONE MINUTES prior to the stroke of midnight Central Time, was deleted so that I could delay my settling down for the night and put it back up with a timestamp of 9/12/07, just so some whiny ass-ettes might be pacified and hence not make too much noice whilst banging their sippy cups. (Incidentally, at the time of the original posting, it was already 9/12/07 in the Eastern Time Zone, but I guess that doesn’t mean much to some people.

    Boy, sippy-cupster would have been pissed at what I did to commemorate 9/11. The same fucking things I did the previous 364 days since the *LAST* anniversary, where I did the same fucking things I did the previous 364 days since the previous anniversary, ad infinitum.

    Unlike many people, I don’t need an anniversary to get me righteously pissed again. Every couple of months or so, when I feel the white-hot anger dying down, I click on that little “NEVER forget, NEVER forgive” link on Misha’s sidebar, to stoke the fires some more. But, then again, I don’t have the attention span of a ferret, unlike the vast majority of Americans. Every single day of my life is an ‘anniversary’ of 9/11. We, both as a country and as individuals, aren’t doing half of what we need to do to defeat Islam. (the missing word in intentional…)

    Anyhoo, on to football.

    Without going back and scanning every pick I made, I’m pretty sure I was 5-1 on the week, and 4-2 against the spread. If you include the two “you can have double the spread, for all I care” picks, I had a pretty good week at Pick ‘Em.

    Michigan lost, and looked horrid doing it, LSU destroyed Va Tech, OAK-lahoma carved up Miami like an Easter ham, Bucky won, but, didn’t even come close to the spread, the Holsteins beat the Horned Frogs (but, in my lone bad pick versus the spread, covered easily), De-twah managed to beat Oakland in a game of “whomever sucks least, wins”, Dallas beat the Gints, and, in my lone blown pick, Green Bay’s special teams managed to defeat Brett Favre and the Iggles.

    For amusement purposes only, college football fans just *might* want to look up Notre Dame’s remaining schedule, and just TRY to find where Notre Dame is going to scratch out as many as four wins, much less a winning season. If you’re a Domer Hater, it will give you chuckles for weeks. If you’re a Domer Fan (and I am), it could mean your loved ones have to remove sharp objects from your presence for the next couple of months. This Irish team could be near-historically bad. 0-11 isn’t out of the realm of possibility.

    I’ll put my picks for this week’s games in this week’s PFW preview.
