My teams seems to have developed this disturbing trend of showing up extremely late for games before coming through at the end.
MERLIN: Maybe they’re taking after you…?
VENOMOUS: Aww hush, you.
Arlington Heights 14, OD Wyatt 7
at #23 Texas Christian 38, Louisiana Monroe 17
#1 Oklahoma 23, at #5 Florida State 13
at #10 Nebraska 51, UWashington 38
Dallas 27, at San Transsexual 24 (OT)
Wyatt’s on an up year, I think. They managed to hold Heights until the fourth quarter, harassing Omar Valadez into four fumbles & a pick, but the Jackets came back late.
The Yellow Jackets seemed destined to fall after Valadez fumbled for the fourth time with 4:39 left, but Wyatt gave the ball right back. Arlington Heights drove the deciding 31 yards on two runs from Valadez, who also threw a touchdown pass in the first quarter.
Well, at least Bo finally admitted it was about revenge.
“I would hope our football team took personal what happened out in San Diego, losing that football game,” Pelini said. “End of the day, we all wanted a win. I don’t care what the score is.”
The game was tight going into the third, but shot themselves in the foot in the third quarter.
The Huskies gave Nebraska a short field when Desmond Trufant was penalized 15 yards for interfering with Burkhead as he tried to catch a punt, and they were charged another 5 yards for sideline interference.
Nebraska started at its 44 and ran on seven of eight plays before Burkhead bulled into the end zone from the 1.
The Huskers were set up at the Washington 1 second later. Bishop Sankey dropped the kickoff, and teammate Kevin Smith couldn’t come up with the ball as a horde of Huskers converged. Mathew May recovered, and Burkhead punched it in for his second touchdown in 9 seconds.
UWarshington came back a bit and gave it a fight, but couldn’t stop the Huskers in the fourth when they needed to.
For once, the Sooners survived an 11-on-18 travesty.
Florida State was being allowed to literally mug Sonner wideouts & backs, whereas when a pair of OU defensive backs knocked a ‘Nole receiver out cold on a legal hit, they got flagged.
But Javon Harris grabbed a couple of picks, and Kenny Stills grabbed a 37-yard TD pass from Landry Jones (18-27-199-1TD-2INT) to ice the game.
TCU sleep-walked through the first half. And Gary Patterson was none too happy over it.
After TCU players heard from an irritated coach Gary Patterson at halftime, they quickly took it out on Louisiana-Monroe.
“He was pretty intense,” quarterback Casey Pachall said. “He got after all of us in there; we had to step it up.”
Greg McCoy returned the second-half kickoff 94 yards for a touchdown, and the TCU defense came up with a big play right after as the 23rd-ranked Horned Frogs finally took control in a 38-17 victory that was Patterson’s 100th win as head coach.
After that, the Frogs finally realized they were playing the school formerly known as NE Louisiana, got pissed off and shut them down.
After McCoy’s TD return, Warhawk running back Jyruss Edwards coughed up the ball to DJ Yendrey deep in Hawk territory, leading to Matthew Tucker’s 1-yard plunge for a 35-17 lead. Ross Evans would get lucky and make a field goal for the final margin.
Still don’t like Romo much. But credit where credit’s due – that was a gutsy performance Sunday.
Romo suffered not only a cracked rib during the game, but a collapsed lung as well. Corlos Rogers nailed Romo in the backside, driving him from the game and bringing on Jon “Pick!” Kitna.
J-Kit did throw a touchdown to Miles Austin – one of three he caught on the day – but also a couple of picks, one leading indirectly (read: on the next play) to San Transsexual points.
Having seen enough, Romo came back in and led the Cowboys to a tie on the last play of regulation.
After stopping the Whiners near their 40, Romo found Jesse Holley streaking up the right seam, and hit him in stride to the 1. Dan Bailey nailed the game-winner after earlier clanking one off the right upright.
As for Bucky & Kansas?
Well, Bucky destroyed Northern Illinois, 49-7, on the strength of Russell Wilson’s 23-32-347 day. (A Wisconsin QB who passes?! Uh, oh.)
Rock Chalk, OTOH…(sigh).
Now you know why I don’t want them in the PFW. I wanna actually have a chance to say…
This week: 5-0. Perfect Football Weekend achieved (1). Overall: 12-2.
The PFW will return Thursday, when we’ll pontificate once again on why the New York Football Douchebags are fucking pansy-asses.
