This Mule is Rented, The Rent is Late

PYB dives in quickly with a quick good morning post to all its readers. Some quick observations, after a semi-full day of college football viewing:

--Nebraska had its best Saturday of the year yesterday. Corny joke. True story. But wait, things actually got worse for the Cornhuskers, even though they didn't play a game? Well....

--Wyoming got drilled by Texas State, 42-21. Brett "He Will Play on Sundays" Smith threw for 292 yards on 48 attempts. Gabbert-esque numbers.

--South Dakota State got drilled by North Dakota State, 20-0. After NU did its best to propel SDSU running back Zach Zenner to first-round draft choice status, the Bison defense held him to FOUR yards. On EIGHT carries. With a long of THREE. Would that have been Zenner's shortest rushing gain last week versus the Blackskirts? Either way, I-AA teams now laugh at Nebraska and its pathetic effort.

--So, can't stop a running back who gained eight yards the next week against I-AA competition. Couple that with the fact that NU allows a 63 percent completion percentage to opposing have a recipe for disaster next week considering Illinois looked good and put up more than 600 yards. Containing Illini quarterback Nate Scheelhaase (see photograph of him refining his new throwing technique this summer at the Taylor Martinez Passing Camp) will be a tough task...

--Oregon scored 27 points in the first quarter, including two touchdowns in the first six minutes.

--Braxton Miller walks on water.

--LSU and Georiga played an exciting game. The Dawgs are still soft.

--USC sucks. Lane Kiffin got axed after coming from ahead in Tempe last night to lose. The Trojans led 21-20 in the third quarter and lost 62-41. Bo Pinelli would be proud of the team's moxie.

--So does Notre Dame. Arizona State will destroy them next week in Dallas.

--Anyway, we have to run. Please forgive us for being negative...."It's the only thing we ever done..."

We stole this link from the OWH's Dirk C. and put it out on Twitter yesterday and got a few compliments. Long read, but worth it if you have the time. And if you have more time, a good watch here....

Enjoy your Sunday...PYB

  1. I wish Pat Hayden was our A.D. Hopeful prediction for the 107th ranked Blackshirts so it's a no-brainer to axe time chinless timebomb:
