Okay better get this out of the way before Casey writes a 1,000 word column about it. Congrats Husky fans, you beat USC again. Remember when you did it last year and still didn't make a bowl game? But I'm sure you're still singing the praises of this guy...
Jake Locker, who's most assured to be a first-round bust in the NFL led a heroic drive to get his team into field goal range. Hooray! He's still going to suck in the pros, but at least he's having a better weekend than the WSU Cougars who actually showed fight but still lost to the UCLA Bruins. I can hear the Dean's office warming up Paul Wulff's pink slip right now.
Boise State put a 70-point beatdown on New Mexico State but still got leap-frogged by Oregon in the polls. What does that mean? (a) New Mexico State sucks so bad that a 70-point blowout is considering an off performance by the Broncos and (b) by actually having college teams on their schedule, Oregon is showing why they deserve to be in the national title talk. Oh, and the Pac-10 is really good, sans Washington State.
Should we move into real football? FCS I mean.
The Montana Grizzlies put a smackdown on Northern Colorado 30-7, while Montana State barely won in a track meet with Sacramento State. It was 64-61 in Sacramento and it took overtime to do it. What does that mean? I still think MSU is the better team in the Big Sky Conference and will beat the Griz in their annual rivalry game.
But don't count out the Eags who defeated Weber State 35-24 as EWU quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell had a rare good game. Congrats and I hope he refrains from doing his normal Rex Grossman impression from here on out. Perhaps he could even play for the Seattle Seahawks as Matt Hasselbeck is not really being the spoon that stirs the kettle. The Hawks lost to the woeful Rams 20-3. All I can say is what the hell?
That wasn't even the worst loss of the day, as Casey's wife Lindsey is a huge Broncos fan.
That's a photo of Casey and Lindsey. Lindsey is on the right. Anyways, the loathsome Broncos won in dramatic fashion 26-20 over my beloved Tennessee Titans. Whatever. It's early in the season and Denver will go 8-8 and miss the playoffs.
Here's a few other games you might be interested in...
Idaho 33, Western Michigan 13 - Woo, the Vandals are 3-2
Hawaii 41, La. Tech 21 - Boo! I wish the Warriors would lose so Casey would stop talking about them.
