Y’know, when I added Houston to the PFW, I should have realized that Wade Phillips was a coach on a staff of a team that was starting a backup quarterback.
And didn’t I just leave that party?
Arlington Heights 40, South Hills 16
at TCU 27, Kansas 17
at #7 Georgia 26, #25 Missouri 41
#12 Oklahoma 20, TU Shortdicks 36 (at Dallas)
at Houston 13, St. Louis 38
at Dallas 31, Washington REDSKINS!!!!!! 16
(Incidentally, guys, I didn’t mention that Liberty didn’t play this weekend. My bad.)
This Deion Hair’Griffin seems to be a find for Phil Young’s Yellow Jackets.
Hair-Griffin completed 14 of 22 passes for 234 yards, including a 20-yard touchdown pass to Davon Davis on the opening drive of the game. Hair-Griffin also ran for two touchdowns, a 1-yard sneak and a 35-yard scamper that put the Yellow Jackets (2-4 overall, 2-1 District 7-4A) up 20-10 heading into halftime.
And he’s only a sophomore. Hmmmm.
What I Tell Ya about TCU playing down to its competition?
Boykin throws two more picks, one a pick-six, and the score is tied 10-all at the half. Fortunately, David Porter bailed Boykin out with a 76-yard catch-and-score on the first play of the second half, and TCU’s defense stiffened just enough to allow the Frogs to pull away somewhat (though they still didn’t cover).
Clearly, Griffin’s been rushed back (he got no preseason work at all), and the rust is clearly there.
But the story of this game was Dwayne Harris. 222 return yards (more than the entire Cowgirl offense), one return for a score and another 90-yarder setting up a Romo-to-Terrence Williams TD catch, pretty much made the difference in the game.
And this time, though Griffin passed for over 300 yards, he didn’t shred Dallas’ defense like the last two times. (Of course, having a healthy Sean Lee & Bruce Carter helped some.) Guess America’s Darling is human, after all.
Georgia? You let this mongrel beat you at home?
Say so long to any BCS aspirations, boys.
This, people. This is why I threw Oklahoma out of the PFW last year: The inability to win a big game that they should have fucking won.
[Case] McCoy threw two touchdowns, 295-pound defensive tackle Chris Whaley returned an interception 31 yards for a score and the Longhorns (4-2, 3-0 Big 12) ended Oklahoma’s three-game winning streak in the rivalry to give Brown at least a temporary reprieve from all the gloomy talk about his future with the Longhorns.
That’s what happens when you choke, Bobby Stoops. And I’m starting to thing there’s something fishy about the TCU game, as well. Again.
They cheered Matt Schaub when he injured his ankle. Because he injured it.
With respect to the General…that’s Pew-stun for you.
TJ Yates threw a pick-six, keeping that streak alive at five games. Coach Stay-Puf’s defense couldn’t stop a baa-baa sheep offense.
The General has made lots of noise about rookie Case Keenum taking over as the starter.
With the Tex-annes’ season plinking into the toilet, I tend to agree. Keenum gained a college rep as a passer extraordinaire at the U. of…well, whaddya know…Houston. So he’s already the most popular man in the city. And they did run an NFL-style offense in Cougarland. Why not throw him in & let him see what he can do?
But until they do, I’m done with ‘em. Houston…you’re out of the PFW.
Nevertheless, because it’s the first time Dallas has beaten the Second Coming, it’s an Executive Fiat type of weekend.
This week: 3-3. Perfect Football Weekend achieved (4). Overall: 17-16.
The PFW will return Friday. And I don’t know what I’m gonna talk about yet (*coughBobCostasthefuckingpussycough*)…but I’ll think of something.
