Football Notes

1. No, I'm not eating crow about Wisconsin, first of all because I'm a Wisconsin fan so I'm happy that they won, but secondly because while Donovan played well and ran well, Stocco is still clearly better, and Iowa is completely incompetent.

2. Congrats to Wisconsin for cracking the top 10. Will the BCS punish them next week just for playing Buffalo?

3. There were a number of laterals in the NFL this week, plus whatever you'd like to call that play in the Eagles game where Buckhalter caught a bank-shot off of an Eagle receiver. Greg Jennings made a nice lateral to Donald Driver. In the words of Lou Brown:

Nice play Jennings. Don't ever fuckin' do it again.

4. In the unlikely even that my pathetic Super Bowl pick Tampa Bay wins tonight, they will only be a game behind my other, equally terrible Super Bowl pick of Cincinnati.

5. Cincy may have the worst defense in the league. How good was Odell Thurman?

6. Stop trying long FGs against the Bears. Please. All my Bear fan friends are back on the Super Bowl bandwagon, but the offense didn't play that well and the Giants were very banged up. I still think this roller-coaster has a few valleys left.

7. What are the odds of the Badgers winning in Iowa the same weekend that the Packers win in Minnesota. Individually these are rarities. Together it is almost impossible.

8. Guess who?

A. Points For: 249. Points Against: 189

B. PF: 250. PA: 174

C. PF: 189 PA: 199

A is the undefeated Colts. B is the 5-4 Dallas Cowboys. C is the 6-3, first place Seattle Seahawks. By the way, even though the Hawks have given up more points than they have scored, they do have the best differential in the NFC West.


  • The BCS can't really do anything to reward or punish Wisconsin, seeing as Wisconsin has already been eliminated from contention as a BCS team. Only two teams per conference can get in, and in the Big Ten those will definitely be Michigan and Ohio State.

  • What if Michigan beats Ohio State by like 80 points?

  • Unfortunately, MDS is probably right because OSU beat Texas earlier this year and WI has beaten, well, nobody really. OSU could lose by 200 and it might not matter.

    We're geared up for the Capital One bowl, I just hope we finish in the top 8 so that we can bitch about the BCS two-team rule.

  • I think Michigan did beat Ohio State by like 80 points once. In 1902 or something.
