Blogtoberfest: a tureen of other people's information wrapped in fresh EDSBS field bacon. Mmm...tureen.
Erik's got his own All-Name team for the SEC, and it's strong, strong stuff. As for the king of all monikers, there can only one winner, and it's special, indeed.
Be gentle with him...at first.
I want your job, Donaghy. Ted Miller takes SpeculativA!, the medication designed especially for columnists seeking material, in this week's column on Jim Mora on the loose in Seattle as an overqualified secondary coach for the Seahawks.
At the center of Miller's speculation is an actual nugget of old but still enticing truth: that Mora infamously said on the air that he wanted Ty Willingham's job while a.) Willingham still had/has the job, and b.) he was still the Atlanta Falcons' coach at the time.
Ty Willingham straps on the faux Zen voice he uses for negative comments in an excerpt.
"My thought is very simply this: If you just let people speak, you can find out a lot," Willingham said at the time.
Recover at your own risk from that, Mora! Your words are being examined for meaning! Be warned and go in peace, lotus blossom.
Anthony Reddick: Ned 2007? Miami (can't spell it without the word "maim") safety Anthony Reddick, next in the line of manic Hurricanes safeties, underwent reconstructive surgery for his torn ACL and will probably miss the entire 2007 bill. Lieutenant Winslow, illustrious Deadspin commenter and 'Canes fan, wonders openly if Reddick will turn out to be the 'Canes answer to the unstoppable force that is A'mod Ned.
We're sure on one thing: the Texas State University Fightin' Armadillos aren't in there, and it's a fucking crime. Kyle attempts to rank the elite teams in college football in recent history, and it passes any and all eyeball tests we've given it.
The top ten, as averaged out by their final ranking with a point subtracted for BCS titles (think golf, not badminton, you shuttlecock-tossing nancy boy.)
5)Ohio State: 10.8
Not a horrible estimate there. Only Miami looks really wonky, and that's more a matter of the prejudice of the present sneaking in and coloring our view of an institution still capable of being nothing more than the premiere pro football prep program in the nation. They've sucked recently, but sun, forgiving academics, and the hordes of surgically enhanced and willing ass "Miami touch" all remain in place for future success.
Hey! Kick ball man groan funny!
All the best to Terry Hoeppner, who is still undergoing treatment related to brain cancer. Kick its goddamn ass, coach.
