The majority of us were expecting a terribly boring Saturday of college football yesterday....
What we ended up with, was one of the better weekends of the season! Sure, I may be partial because my Kentucky Wildcats knocked of the Uga-less Bulldogs in Athens for the first time since 1977, but there was plenty of other good football played....It's time for your Post-Saturday notebook!
--Sure, we give Charlie Weis' fat ass a hard time here at The PMB, and it is usually deserved, but yesterday is a day that no coach wants to experience. Charlie has the support of his players, but ultimately you have to win football games in South Bend to remain the coach. Weis failed to do so, and now the coaching search will begin in South Bend. Who is the front runner? Do they aim high and try to reach out to Urban Meyer or Bobby Stoops? In the end, if they strike out with their high-priority targets, does Brian Kelly get the call he's been wating for from a big name university?
--What can you say about PawPaw Brooks and the job he has done at the University of Kentucky. Sure, he's watered down the schedule and his coordinators can drive the Big Blue faithful insane with their conservative style, at times. However, Brooks now has the Wildcats sitting pretty at 7-4 and a chance to finish second in the SEC East with a victory over the hated Volunteers from Knoxville. The Wildcats have stopped two streaks (@Aub and @UGA) this season and a New Years Day bowl is within their grasp. Time to step up to the plate and end the streak to the Vols.
--Les Miles....is there another coach in America who manages to out-stupid Billy Clyde Gillispie on a weekly basis? This man makes nearly 4 million dollars to coach some of the most talented players in America and, well, he still manages to screw it up on the weekly! FARRRRRRR Les Miles!
--Did anyone else hear Lou Holtz say bitch on the Scoreboard Show last night? Lou is always the epitome of entertainment, and last night his Notre Dame rant was youtube worthy!
--Big Ten football. Need I say more?
--Clemson vs. Georgia Tech for the ACC Championship? You think thats what the ACC commish had in mind when he raided the Big East conference?
--Is it just me or has the Pac-10 been much more exciting without having to see Pete Carroll's big nose all over the television? The Oregon-Arizona game was something to behold last night, and I hope you stayed up to watch it!
--Plain and simple, TCU is a legit football team and should be in the thick of the discussion for the BCS championship. They would give all the top 3 teams a run for their money and more!
--Ryan Mallet is a future NFL stud, folks. Watch this kid play and you'll agree. He has ALL the tools to be a future NFL superstar.
Time to watch my Redskins go 3 and out on a consistent basis and get destroyed by the Cowboys. Happy Sunday, everyone.
