The Thursday night game has evolved from something that was well, sucky, to something that is well, less sucky. It’s pretty interesting to see that ESPN’s attempt to whore out some smaller teams on a national stage has actually worked out to be a pretty compelling matchup week in and week out.
This week’s matchup involved the
Dolphis and Steelers, Hairy Beavers and the Gay Broncos. Even though my rule still applies that any “State” school that isn’t named after an actual state shouldn’t be allowed to play football, Boise has traditionally been a pretty good team. That is until Dan Hawkins took his winning ways to Colorado, where during the trip, they flew out the window and resulted in a prompt loss to Montana Junior High Montana State.
As it turns out, the question they’re asking in Boise, ID is Dan who? The Broncos hung close to half a hundie on a Pac-10
powerhouse mid-carder school after the first quarter where it looked like the Beavers were going to stink themselves to a win, going ahead early 14-0.
Smurf Turf, the awesomest turf if “awesomest” means “not awesomest”
This has been a pretty bad week for the Pac 10 with Southern Cal looking like the only team that can actually score more points than their opponent (a critical oversight by the Pac 10 coaches, not gameplanning for the other team scoring). Sure, other teams in the Pac (UCLA, Arizona, etc) had wind over the weekend, but the losses were so bad that it kind of overshadows the wins.
Congrats to the Broncos on a dominating win, even though you have a really stupid looking field.
