Like The Rest Of You, The 15-7-0 Is Worried For Maryland Against Towson

September 26, 2011 | Glenn Clark

7 Not So Positive Observations…

1. The Tennessee Titans won again Sunday, but without Kenny Britt I wouldn’t expect many more

Ravens fans are of course thinking to themselves, “had to happen this week. Of COURSE it had to happen this week.”

I suggest you pick up Nate Washington in your fantasy football league. That’s all I have for this week. Enjoy your night.

2. The whole Syracuse-Toledo thing was ugly, but officiating has still never determined a game

The Big East SHOULD be embarrassed. There’s no excuse to EVER get an extra point miss/make wrong. EVER. That being said, it’s infuriating to hear things like “Toledo lost because of a bad call.”

It’s as if the Rockets DIDN’T get the ball back with a chance to win in regulation or got the ball in overtime. It’s as if Toledo DIDN’T give up 29 LEGITIMATE points in regulation that they could have stopped.

Please football fans. You’re smarter than this.

3. Can someone let Michael Vick know that if you complain about something, you can’t later say you’re not complaining about it

The Eagles can’t win without Michael Vick. I don’t care how much talent they have. They CAN’T win without Michael Vick…PERIOD. That being said, Michael Vick also can’t complain about something and then say “I’m not going to complain about it.”

Oh hey, there was a football game in Philadelphia Sunday. Victor Cruz had himself a nice little day…

4. Now matter how many times we asked, the NFL just wouldn’t cancel Browns-Dolphins or Bengals-49ers

The following are considered “highlights.” We may have to ask for a clarification on the term…

So…that happened.

5. Mike Locksley

Remember when Mike Locksley was a rockstar assistant at Maryland (and Illinois) well on his way to bringing the most talented DC kids to wherever he was going to end up coaching and turning them into a major power? Remember how much Towson fans had hoped they could get him to replace Gordy Combs?

Yeah, I barely do either.

What a trainwreck the Lockley era in New Mexico was. It ended fittingly, with a loss to Sam Houston freaking State. I don’t know where Locksley is headed next, but…um…thanks for Vernon Davis?

6. Losing to Temple is bad, yes. But losing at home to North Dakota State? HOW????

Clearly Minnesota is dealing with some terrible things (their head coach Jerry Kill was re-admitted to the hospital due to seizures), but they lost at home to North Dakota State…partially thanks to a bizarre lateral for the Bison near the half…

Fortunately Bemidji State isn’t on the schedule for the Golden Gophers this season.

7. Yes I, like everyone else, was rooting for the Colts to beat the Steelers and feel really let down

You think when NBC kept cutting to Peyton Manning in the coaching booth he was thinking to himself “I’d totally be up by 24 points if I was playing tonight?”

Meanwhile Curtis Painter was busy running into a camera…

That happened. Eff the Steelers. Eff the Colts again too now that they’re not playing the Steelers.

And my “Oh No” moment of the weekend…

“Oh no! I can’t figure out which is cooler! Jon “Bones” Jones or the Arizona Diamondbacks’ NL West clinching celebration!”

Ravens DT Arthur Jones’ little brother was BRILLIANT Saturday night in his defeat of Quinton “Rampage” Jackson at UFC 135. I’d show you highlights but Dana White owns the interwebs so they don’t exist. Instead, I’ll show you a picture of the Kung Pao Shrimp Tacos I was eating while watching the fight at Jimmy’s Famous Seafood in Dundalk…


Haven’t seen the D-Backs’ celebration? After beating the Giants and spraying themselves with champagne, they proceeded to jump into the Chase Field pool. It was really awesome…

Flexing my mic muscles since 1983…
