Bumped from the Fan Posts. --Ed.
Wednesdays can suck, especially the one that follows Labor Day and the opening weekend of college football. It would be depressing if not for the bright light at the end of my tunnel; the double rainbow calling my name (what does it mean?); the soothing caress of comfort that is: Week 2.
Because football is indeed cooler than what you are currently doing, here's a quick look at this past weekend (w/ pictures!), and then the upcoming match-ups that we can only hope include an upset - because it's Week 2, and that's what happens. This is when it gets hot.Highlights from WEEK 1:
#2 Ohio State 45, Marshall 7
Terrelle Pryor came out with a strong showing as the leading [superbigtimetrophy] contender. Completing 17 of 25 for 247 yards, 3 TDs and no INTs, he confirms that he doesn't suck at football.
#14 USC 49, Hawaii 36
This is only worth mentioning as the only way the sanction stricken Trojans playing Hawaii on Thursday could be interesting is if Lane Kiffin were to do something only Lane Kiffin would do. And he did. Four times. Because at some point, the size of one's genitalia is all you got.
#4 Florida 34, Miami (OH) 12
Hahahahahuhuhuhuh... look, Tim. Tim?
#11 Oregon 72, New Mexico 0
Chip Kelly pours concrete on his foothold of coachiness after cutting his star felon quarterback loose to the Right Reverend and proceeds to beat the everliving shit out of Los Lobos, which is initially funny considering the weekend results of the latter, then immediately frightening. I imagine an elaborate scene in which that big bulldog headlocks Tom while Jerry drinks his martini on top of the doghouse.
Jacksonville State 49, Mississippi 48 (2OT)
There's not a whole lot to say here, but Houston Nutt is dirty.
#7 Oklahoma 31, Utah State 24
"Hehe, that would be funny..."
"Hey wow, look at that."
"Oh shit yes GO!"
Let's all make a personal vow to say "Spike it!" and giggle childishly in the 4th quarter of every LSU game. It's better this way and is still funny. Also, UNC didn't look half bad for having 300 guys on probation.
#3 Boise State 33, #10 Virginia Tech 30
