Conventional wisdom says that if you have two quarterbacks that deserve to start, then you have no quarterbacks.
In TCU’s case, 0 – 2 = 0.
Arlington Heights 21, at White Settlement Brewer 23
#24 TCU 24, at Texas Tech 20, Blind-Assed Fucking Zebras -14
at Liberty 38, Morgan St. 10
at Houston 30, Tennessee 24 (OT)
Heights played Brewer even up, except for a safety.
Liberty QB Josh Woodrum was 9 of 15 for 101 yards and one interception. But it was the running game that gave the Flames (2-1) the winning advantage with 330 total yards rushing. Rice was joined in the backfield by Clifton Richardson who had 86 yards and two touchdowns on 14 carries.
(hat tip: the four-lettered network)
Schaubbie didn’t have that great of a day – he threw a couple of picks, one of ‘em a pick-six to Titan DB Alterraun (Alterraun? Alderaan?) Verner.
But he had enough to drive the Texans on an 80-yard march and an Arian Foster two-point conversion, then win the game in overtime on a fade to DeAndre Hopkins.
First things first (and with all due respect to the Generalette): The Frogs got jobbed again by the fucking stripes. Two punt returns nullified by zebras’ hankies – one on a phantom fair-catch signal, the other on a phantom clipping call.
That said – one thing is painfully clear: Trevon Boykin is not the answer at quarterback for the Frogs.
Two more picks. A woeful inability to use his arm to move the Frogs down the field.
Not that he’s the only goat. The TCU defense let a backup freshman quarterback beat them in the fourth quarter with a TD pass with 3:48 remaining. Which, given the Frogs’ lack of an offense this year, may as well have been having two hundred yards to go for a touchdown with :01 left.
Yet, for all that Heights & TCU failed me, we’re invoking Executive Fiat and declaring a PFW.
OZY McCOOL: Huh?
MERLIN: Do tell.
Central Florida 34, at Penn State 31
Storm Johnson ran for a career-high 117 yards and a score and added a touchdown reception as the Knights (3-0) beat a Big Ten team for the first time in school history. UCF never trailed (emphasis added. -DV), having its way against Penn State’s defense to give the newly minted American Athletic Conference a shot of respectability.
This week: 2-2. Overall: 6-5
The PFW returs Friday, when we speak of guarantees.
