THE CURIOUS INDEX THINKS THAT GUY WAS WEIRD TOO, FRANK

LOOK, GET TO THE PART ABOUT THE PUNTS OR I'M DONE WITH THIS STORY, STRANGER.

Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

FAREWELL, SWEET PRINCE. Frank Beamer went out a victor on the final Thursday night game of his career, 23-21 over Georgia Tech. The Hokie offense, per tradition, was not easy to watch, but they bullied their way over, hitching their wagon to Travon McMillian's 24 carries for 135 yards and two scores.

Tech has three games left in Beamer's final season, which just assumes they'll hit six wins because try telling me with a straight face that Frank Beamer's final game in charge will be a loss to Virginia. It feels appropriate to give him a curtain call on Thursday though, as he and his Hokies have embraced the role of Thursday night stars more than any program in the country.

Thank you for the defense and field position, Frank. We salute you.

SHOW YOUR WORK, SON. Unless you're currently under nine years of age, we were all once fourth graders. Oklahoma State quarterback J.W. Walsh was once a fourth grader too, and it seems like even back then, he was pretty focused on football and didn't waste his time with unimportant topics like math and reading.

I can't say for sure without consulting my own papers, but I'm relatively certain I never had a disagreement with my parents about running the veer. Though, in hindsight, maybe I should've.

WDE. Same, Jason. Same.

BEHOLD, THE NEW GOVERNOR OF GEORGIA, SKATEBOARDING BULLDOG!

ETC. How do you fight fires way the hell up in Dubai skyscrapers? With jetpacks, dummy.
