Welcome to the Realm™ - Version 5.0...

One wonders whether the Demoscummic veep nominee actually wants the post or not.

Senator Gaffemeister&#153 is now saying that if they get elected, it won’t be long before the United States gets its ass tested.

“Mark my words,” the Democratic vice presidential nominee warned at the second of his two Seattle fundraisers Sunday. “It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking. We’re about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America. Remember I said it standing here if you don’t remember anything else I said. Watch, we’re gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy.”

He’d best hope not.&#160 If the United States gets attacked again during any Obambi watch, I daresay it won’t have the same pulling-America-together effect as did 9/11.

Just sayin’, is all.


Coach Cupcake has to go.

at Texas Christian 32, #9 Brigham Young 7

at UBuffalo 27, Army 24 (OT)

at #4 Oklahoma 45, #16 Kansas 31

Nebraska 35, at Iowa State 7

Dallas 14, at St. Louis 34

This quote from ESPN says it all about UBuff:

It never seems to come easily for Buffalo, which also beat Temple 30-28 on Willy’s 35-yard touchdown pass as time expired on Sept. 13.

The Bulls had to scramble from 14 down in the final quarter, then kicked a field goal in OT and held on to win as Army missed their own FG try.&#160 Drew Willy was 25-35-279, and Ernest Jackson caught nine passes for 134 yards and one of the critical fourth-quarter touchdowns.

Nothing like a Cyclone to cure what ails a Husker.

Nebraska scored once in the first, twice in the second, then cruised in their victory over Iowa State.

Joey Ganz was 27-37-328 and a touchdown to Nate Swift (one of eight catches and 112 yards on the day for him).&#160 Marlon Lucky led a balanced rushing attack and also scored twice.

Bradford threw for 468 on 36-53 as the Sooners outpaced the Jayhawks.

Kansas came within a touchdown early in the third quarter, then Oklahoma put the game away.

Once Kansas got within 31-24, Oklahoma sacked him on three of the next four drives in forcing four straight punts.

Jeremy Beal got the first hand on Reesing, knocking the ball free to force a long third down, and two of the next three drives ended after Gerald McCoy and Auston English sacked Reesing on third-down plays.

There is a difference between this edition of the Horned Frogs as opposed to previous versions.&#160 This year’s Frogs actually have a secondary.

BYU QB Max Hall was intercepted twice and lost two fumbles as the Frog defense put the clamps down on the same offense that hung nearly 60 on UCLA.&#160 The secondary, though it did give up a couple medium-length balls, provided extremely tight coverage throughout.

BYU’s overall running game was also stuffed.&#160 Harvey Unga gained 53 yards on 14 carries, but Max Hall gave most of that back with -24 yards on 10 carries.

Andy Dalton was 12-19-170, most of that going to Jimmy Young (4 catches, 78 yards).&#160 The Frog running game was, for the most part, a takeoff of the single-wing formation, with wideout Jeremy Kerley lining up as the QB in the backfield and taking the snap for a designed QB draw.&#160 Joseph Turner also had 69 yards on 19 carries for the Tadpoles.

The running game didn’t run that well, although Marion Barber did get his 100 on 18 carries.

The passing game didn’t pass.&#160 Primarily because the line couldn’t block Swiss cheese.

The defense didn’t defend.&#160 Stephen Jackson ran over, around and through the Dallas matador defense.&#160 (Ol&#233!!!)

Special teams weren’t.

Hell, never mind Bruce Read – why is Wade Phillips&#160 still here?

The C’boys took the opening kickoff straight down the field and shoved it down the Ewes’ throat.&#160 Whereupon the Ewes promptly took exception and scored the next 34 points of the game.

Brad Johnson, who’s supposedly here because he “never makes mistakes” and “always makes the smart play” – well, he got picked off three times.

All this against what was, statistically, the absolute worst team in the league.&#160 Which makes one wonder – what does that, then, make the Cowgirls?

Oh, but Coach Cupcake’s job isn’t in danger.&#160 NoSirreeBob&#153.

Jones said it was a good time to assess the state of the franchise, but not to make sweeping changes.

“It’s pretty obvious that we need to sit down and look at everything we’re doing,” Jones said. “That’s not to be in any way interpreted as a change of any coaching or dramatic change.

“It really isn’t about making a lot of changes people-wise, as much as it’s about the change within the people.”

Which is to say, don’t expect a lot of improvement over at (Hidden) Valley Ranch.&#160 Cthulu forbid that Jerry admit he made a mistake.

This week:&#160 4-1.&#160 Overall:&#160 34-10.

The PFW will return on Friday, where we may start a pool on when Coach Cupcake gets canned.
