Like the rest of you, the 15-7-0 is both sick of and wants so much more Ryan Lochte

Like the rest of you, the 15-7-0 is both sick of and wants so much more Ryan Lochte

As always, this week’s 15-7-0 is brought to you by Roofing By Elite. Visit them at roofingbyelite.com. We make 15 observations about football ELITE, 7 about football “not so ELITE” and one “zero” who deserves to sleep on the roof from outside of football.

(As a reminder, we don’t do Baltimore Ravens game analysis here. We do PLENTY of that elsewhere. This is about the rest of the world of football.)

“The ELITE 15″…

1. And after Week 8, we have a new Heisman Trophy frontrunner.

Which is partly because after being crowned “King of Football”, Geno Smith has gone missing. But it is much more because Kansas State’s Collin Klein picked up the scepter and RAN IT IN FOR FOUR TOUCHDOWNS AGAINST WVU.

Of course, the one he threw to Tyler Lockett was just the prettiest…

The Wildcats take over the “on pace for the BCS title game” role and Klein goes to the top of the Heisman list. West Virginia goes…

“BACK! BACK! BACK INTO THE WOODS!”

2. Christian Ponder is both the quarterback of a 5-2 football team and has a lovely girlfriend.

(His girlfriend is ESPN’s Samantha Steele. I guess this would have been more effective if you knew that in advance.)

Ponder was helped greatly in topping the Cards by RB Adrian Peterson who is might be? good again.

Also, Cards RB LaRod Stephens-Howling had over 100 yards and a TD, so that sound you here is EVERYONE switching William Powell for him in their leagues. That was the only good news for Arizona Sunday…well other than the news that they had surpassed Felix Baumgartner’s record for the longest freefall.

3. I know the Colts won, I just care significantly more about the fact that Chuck Pagano came home from the hospital.

But the highlight of the affair in Indianapolis was a Greg Little touchdown catch. Wait, I couldn’t have possibly said that right. It was a Greg Little touchdown catch.

And since he did that, Josh Gordon figured he’d make up for the normal output the Browns get from Greg Little…

Wow. And good for Coach Pagano. Now…does he have any advice for the guys he used to coach?

4. Navy should never stop making motivational videos.

It worked AGAIN this week before Navy came back to shock Big Ten foe Indiana in Annapolis. I understand why it works. These are REALLY good…

The Hoosiers are known for hoops, but there was greater basketball royalty on the Navy side Saturday…

5. Apparently coaching a team that never stops kicking ass makes Will Muschamp really angry.

(In fairness, Wyoming coach Dave Christensen last week was less than impressed. Language NSFW.)

South Carolina was in this one for awhile, at least right up until the first play…

ESPN’s College Gameday was in Gainesville Saturday, which lead to Lee Corso doing this…

(Corso later…)

And they introduced us to Tarin Moses, Gators cheerleader and girlfriend of UF QB Jeff Driskel. We should learn more…

Speaking of Driskel, this.

THIS sign was relevant since South Carolina was in town…

Elsewhere in the SEC, this.

6. And then the Patriots remembered that Rob Gronkowski played for them!

If you didn’t know this was a close game, the gifs would make you think this was a typical pathetic Jets effort in a blowout loss. There was Mark Sanchez kicking the ball out of the back of the endzone…

And Stephen Hill’s “what I had meant to do was…..” late in the 4th…

And then the game ended with a near perfect “Sanchez-ing”…

But before that there was actually a heck of a football game that featured two Gronk TD’s, including this one-which was awfully pretty…

Also, noted Drew Forrester mancrush Jim Nantz struggled at the end of this one…

7. And then Chris Johnson remembered that he was Chris Johnson!

He’s….ALIVE….

So do you NOT trade him to whatever team is in need of RB help? Or do you HAVE to trade him now because his value is greater?

Also, a nod to Bills WR Donald Jones, who went “Carlton Banks” creative for a dance that was WAY better than Gangnam Style in defeat…

    I’m a Penn State student who attended the game. It should be known those Iowa fans were escorted out of the stadium and taken straight to a dean, and they did not reflect Iowa’s fans a whole.
