Thank Cthulhu for Penn State.
Had they not lost to UIndiana Saturday, I might have packed the entire PFW in for the year.
Arlington Heights 55, Trimble Tech 3
Texas Christian 17, at #11 Oklahoma 20
#6 Georgia 34, at UTennessee 31 (OT)
Liberty 17, at Old Dominion 21
at Dallas 48, Denver 51
Houston 3, at San Francisco 34
It was the Deion Hair’Griffin (Deion Hair’Griffin? What kinda name is “Hair’Griffin”?) show at Farrington Field Thursday night. 12 rushes for 86 (part of a 250-yard night for the Jackets), and 13-20-222 passing as Heights finally found someone they could beat.
There goes my nilo.
Once again, a Turner Gill-coached defense lets his school down, giving up two touchdowns in the fourth quarter to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Which is apropos, I guess – Turner’s not a defensive guru.
He kept it within the SpatulaLine though, so it counts.
Georgia let UTennessee hang around too long, and it almost came back to bite them in the ass.
Fortunately, Marshall Morgan kicked a 42-yard field goal in overtime after a Volunteer fumble.
The other three games were basically variations on a theme: Backup quarterbacks acting like backup quarterbacks after being thrust into starting roles. Boykin, Schaub & Romo all leading their teams no-fucking-where. And that’s all I’ve got to say about that.
But it’s still a Perfect Football Weekend, because…
at Indiana 44, Penn State 24
… Nate Sudfeld threw two touchdown passes and Tre Roberson ran for two more scores Saturday, leading Indiana to its first win ever against Penn State 44-24.
Thank you, Hoosiers. You’ve guaranteed at least one more week of the PFW.
This week: 4-3 (Liberty & Penn State count). Perfect Football Weekend achieved (3). Overall: 14-13.
The PFW will return tomorrow, by which time I should have a new archivist to replaced the one…
[SCENE: A muffled thump is heard in the background...the sound of a body falling, lifeless, to the floor.]
…who just resigned.
