Monday Morning Cornerback: Week 8October 31, 2011
Here are my quick hits and jukes from this weekend’s football.
Oklahoma State’s offense is dope, but their defense reminds me of the 2009 New Orleans Saints defense. They’ll bend, they definitely won’t break, and they will take your shit in the form of interceptions and fumble recoveries. They shut down Baylor’s Robert Griffin III with ease.
Clemson is a good team but a young team, so sustaining an undefeated season was highly unlikely. They’re still good for the BCS though. Good God, Sammy Watkins better be in NYC for the Heisman.
Stanford, got Lucky, and I’m not talking Andrew Luck. The unnecessary roughness penalty on USC’s, T.J. McDonald, was a bad call. He led with his shoulder, not his head, and the receiver slipped. That play gave Stanford momentum and put them back into the game.
USC is going to be dope next year if Matt Barkley stays in school or if they have another 5 star QB ready to take the reigns which they probably do.
Oregon won, but does anyone find it slightly troublesome that Washington State put up 28 points on the Ducks defense? Sammy Watkins is that deal, but so is De’Anthony Thomas…so make sure your showing him love.
Kansas State….yeah, they are who we thought they were! An overrated one dimensional team that hadn’t played ranked team outside of Baylor earlier in the season.
Oklahoma hasn’t lost two games in a row since 2003. The #SoonerScratchBack is alive and well, one slip up from Stanford and the Sooners will leap frog Boise State to land in the BCS title game if they keep winning.
Arkansas almost tricked off the dope, but in Vandy’s defense they’re a pretty good ball club and one Robert Griffin III type player from uplifting their program.
College teams have college kids playing for them….duh. So what does this mean? The kids aren’t emotionally stable or mature to bring it week in and week out. I’m sure Michigan State didn’t come off their Wisconsin hailmary high until Friday…and they had to play the Cornhuskers on Saturday….and they lost of course.
Style points matter. I don’t care what you say. VA Tech beat Duke 14-10. Struggling to score against Duke? Nah, that should never happen.
Marcus Lattimore might be out for the rest of the season, but I’ll be damned if Brandon Wilds can’t tote the rock just as well. Be open minded and watch both players before you call me stupid.
Wisconsin is tripping. How do you lose two weeks in a row on two hailmary’s.
Texas A&M can’t close out a game to save their lives. It’s like they go in at halftime and change their entire game plan. Cyrus Gray is a great running back….why doesn’t he keep getting the ball if they Aggies have the lead?
Umm…didn’t watch a lick of Purdue vs. Michigan or Illinois vs. Penn State. Sorry, they’re were better games on TV.
Every thing I said about Michigan State a few graphs up….yeah just change Michigan State to Texas Tech. No need to waste virtual ink.
Arizona State is just chilling until it’s time to play in the Pac-12 inaugural championship game.
Should Mark Richt still be fired after winning six games in a row. That’s my place to decide, but I’d put money on it that he will be even if he only loses one more game.
Uhhh…sure West Virginia won by 10 points in a snowstorm…but did you see Rutgers, Eric LeGrand back on the field and their all black jerseys?!?!?!? Man…loved what I saw.
Titans won…without Chris Johnson. And the Colts are 8 games away from drafting Andrew Luck.
Not sure what the Saints were doing, but they certainly weren’t playing the Rams yesterday.
Just be honest with yourself….the Giants aren’t that good. You have to be honest with yourself.
The Cam Netwon vs. Christian Ponder bowl went to Christian…but man, Cam Newton is balling. If you can “honestly” say you saw this coming from Cam Newton given his awful preseason then I’d probably call you a liar and not trust you with my lint.
What??? Joe Flacco pulled one out? But it was against the Cardinals who are 1-6…geesh, maybe they should try to draft Andrew Luck.
Umm that Jaguars and Texans game put me to sleep.
So the real Redskins have arrived I see.
I think the Bills uniforms are the best in the league and that’ they’ll win the AFC East with ease.
Best WR/CB combo is in Detroit with Calvin Johnson and Chris Houston. #Dontarguewithmebro. Also….Tim Tebow has only started 5 games in his career, let’s let him tank the rest of the season before we pass judgement on him.
The Patriots don’t have any team speed. It’s clearly evident. The Steelers didn’t do anything special yesterday. They just had better athletes. It was like a college game almost.
The freaking 49ers are 6-1. You hear that….6-1. Mike Singletary might not be a head coach ever again. That Jim Harbaugh guy is doin’ work!
We must show love to Andy Dalton. He’s not as exciting as Cam Newton, but he’s getting the job done for the Bengals who are 5-2.
Philadelphia Eagles = Miami Heat.
That’s all I got,
