The 15-7-0 Might Not Be Statue-Worthy As Of Now, But Give It Time

October 24, 2011 | Glenn Clark

8. I’d say LSU & Alabama were playing a playoff game next week, but we all know it could be the first of two matchups this season.

We’ll start with the Bayou Bengals, who were blowout winners over Auburn Saturday afternoon. I certainly hope that Jacksonville Jaguars safety Dawan Landry doesn’t hit anyone Monday night the way Jarvis Landry hit Auburn KR man Onterio McCalebb…

The Crimson Tide played less than inspired football in the first half against Tennessee, but rallied to blow out the Volunteers in the second half…

So now the #1 and #2 teams in the country get a week off before doing battle in Tuscaloosa November 5. The winner of the game will be heading to the national title game barring a slip up the rest of the way.

The big news of the weekend is the national championship implications of the Oklahoma loss. There’s a real question as to what the loss will mean should the Sooners go on to beat OSU in Stillwater. Boise State, Clemson and Stanford could all still go undefeated, but the LSU-Alabama loser could also well be in the picture.

None of us will want to hear it, but unless the game is a blowout these two teams might be deserving of a rematch in the future.  

9. Case Keenum and Joe Paterno also did noteworthy things Saturday.

I’ll let this YouTube video explain to you what it is that the Houston Cougars’ QB accomplished in the team’s win over Marshall Saturday…

(If you couldn’t make that out, Keenum surpassed former Hawaii quarterback Timmy Chang as the NCAA’s all-time leader in total offense. Now we can all go back to not remembering anything about Timmy Chang.)

Joe Paterno also did something amazing Saturday…by breathing.

No really, that’s amazing. But he also won his 408th career game as Penn State topped Northwestern…

10. In one of my fantasy football drafts I had a quarterback choice between Ben Roethlisberger and Matt Schaub. Either would have been fine Sunday.

When the Ravens don’t play on a Sunday, we all sit around and root like hell for whoever the Pittsburgh Steelers are playing. The Arizona Cardinals didn’t give us much to get excited about…

Holy hell the Cards are terrible…and Mike Wallace is scary good.

The only highlight of the game was Greg Gumbel KILLING Hulk Hogan…

The Houston Texans kicked the tar out of the Tennessee Titans in Nashville, leaving little doubt they will end up winning the AFC South…

11. Drew Brees was so good Sunday night I might actually have a chance to win my fantasy football matchup despite literally having no healthy/active players.

In my most important league, I came into the Sunday Night Football showdown having gotten little to NOTHING from the likes of Steve Breaston, Daniel Thomas, Robbie Gould, the Raiders defense and…ugh…Marshawn Lynch. Miraculously, Brees’ performance in the New Orleans Saints’ win over the Indianapolis Colts leaves me just five points behind with Torrey Smith, Mike Thomas and Ed Dickson all still to play. I at least have a chance. Jimmy Graham made another amazing grab for one of Brees’ TD’s…

I assume at this point that Indy’s only goal is to make the Cardinals not look like the worst team in the National Football League, right?

Not good on Sunday night? Colts QB Curtis Painter…

12. Heisman Trophy Watch Update: I’ll keep Kellen Moore JUST ahead of Andrew Luck this week.

Moore was good even if not great in Boise State’s win over Air Force, tying Colt McCoy as the all-time winningest quarterback in college football history. He also passed Ty Detmer for fourth on the all-time passing TD list…

Luck and Stanford faced their “toughest” test of the season thus far with a visit from Washington, but it was never close. Luck wasn’t exactly brilliant, just efficient…

Behind the duo, my top 5 includes Alabama RB Trent Richardson, the aforementioned Russell Wilson and Clemson QB Tajh Boyd-who returned to brilliance in the Tigers’ 59-38 win over North Carolina. Here are some highlights of that!

13. If you bump into Johns Hopkins QB Hewitt Tomlin around Charm City this week, give him a pat on the back for his 500 yard 7 TD performance against Gettysburg.

I have no idea if the Bullets are any good, but this seems like a brilliant performance from the Blue Jays’ QB either way.

Sadly no video exists from Saturday’s game (which JHU won 83-21 by the way). So instead we turn to my favorite part of the 15-7-0…Glenn posts crap he likes on the internet.

1-Can we all agree that the acoustic version of “Pumped Up Kicks” by Foster the People is about a THOUSAND times better than the original???

2-Here’s a cornhole trick shot video I found over at Bro Bible. It’s actually kinda awesome…

There you go. Some web crap. Thank me later.

14. The ending of Perry Hall/Woodlawn > the ending of Wisconsin/MSU.

Sadly, the video from WBAL won’t embed here. But I PRAY you’ll go over and check out the above video, as my Gators won Friday night in absolute STUNNING fashion.

Life is good at PHHS, as we have Homecoming Friday night against Franklin-and we certainly owe some payback to the Indians. And Perry Hall alum Paige Ogle has continued her run on the show “The X Factor” with her new group “Lakoda Rayne.”

And on top of all that, did I mention there was another Perry Hall alum who was recently profiled in PressBox???

Things are good in the Perry Hall world.

15. If New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski may have hooked up with a pornstar named Bibi Jones during his bye week. Good (maybe) for him.

This “controversy” surrounds a picture Jones posted on her Twitter account of her and a shirtless Gronkowski where she was wearing his jersey…

I don’t care who anyone is sleeping with personally. This is no more than an excuse to post a picture of Bibi Jones…
