Weekend Carnage Report

We're running a bit behind schedule this morning, but full recaps about BSU's and Kentucky's wins are upcoming. The Game of the Century turned out to be a snoozer, as most expected, but Pete Carrol was jacked you were watching anyway. Beanie didn't play, Ohio State got gassed, and to go all Les Miles on you, USC looks "damn strong".

The Good
  • The aforementioned Trojans laid the wood to Ohio State on Saturday night. USC is a mighty fine football team, and may very well be one of the best Pete Carrol has. My one concern was QB Mark Sanchez, and he does just fine, thankyouverymuch.
  • Kudos to Notre Dame for finally beating someone noteworthy and silencing the critics for at least a week. Sure, Michigan is down, but a W is a W and I'll take it.
  • As good as USC is, Mizzou and Oklahoma continue to put up monster numbers and dominate the teams they're playing. Winning, and winning big, counts for something, and they're both excelling at it.
  • All three of the teams I follow with some regularity (Ball State/Kentucky/ND) are undefeated. I cannot remember the last time this has happened this late in the season. Congrats fellas.
The Bad
  • Hey, UCLA, you get ranked in the OTP poll and promptly defecate all over the bed. Nice work, gents. This bed-shitting was epic, as BYU beat you from pillar to post. Are you that bad? Is BYU that good? What the hell happened against Tennessee? What does Rick Neuheisel do to that hair?
  • California. Really? You lost to a team that got beat at Middle Tennessee State? Far out man.
  • Charlie Weis took a nasty fall on Saturday during the Michigan game. No, he didn't slip on some errantly placed pastrami. Punt coverage meets a distracted coach and hilarity ensues for all non-ND fans.
The Ugly
  • A win is a win no matter how you slice it, but Kentucky and Auburn should be worried. The Tigers take a 3-2 nailbiter over Mississippi State, and the Wilcats tried their best to give the game away to Middle Tennessee State.
  • The Pac-10 goes 0-4 against the Mountain West, Cal loses to Maryland, and Washington State loses to Baylor. Yes, that Baylor. Take USC out of the equation and the Pac-10 is competing for the worst BCS conference with the Big East.
