We're trapped in a meeting this morning studying the management lessons of Mitch Albom's latest book, Why Everything Is Going To Be Just Fine No Matter What: Lessons I Learned From Senile People. Therefore, enjoy Blogtoberfest until our return around noon EST.
--Isiah Stanback, the entire Washington Huskies offense, is done for the year and career at Washington. Angry fist, shaking at sky at U Dub Dish.
--The referee hates your team. It's in the Bible.
--Tim Brando makes the mistake of attempting to defend ranking Cal above Tennessee, forgetting that the most attractive, credible lunacy is free-standing lunacy. If you're going to build a masterpiece as demented as Brando's ballot, attach no supports or justifications. That's just letting the bastards win.
Tim Brando fails to heed the lessons of Frank Gehry: if you're going to be crazy, be big crazy and don't explain.
--Andy Staples supports the short-yardage qb solution for Florida.
--Your status as a lesbian confirmed: The Wiz brings us his ongoing reports on OutSports' tour of campus tailgates, including the best quote of the year from a pair of lesbians at the Red River Shootout:
"I asked them what brought them to the game and if they enjoyed sports. They dramatically turned up their noses and said that they were not sports fans but since they live in Dallas they 'always!' go to the Texas-OU games because of the 'hot chicks, big beers, and even bigger boobs.' "
Huzzah, ladies. Huzzah.
--The House Rock Built has the goods on why Northwestern's Kafka lost his starting job.
