15 positive observations from the weekend of football, seven not so positive observations and we acknowledge a “zero” from outside the world of football. A reminder, there’s never any Ravens game analysis here. We do plenty of that elsewhere. It’s a trip through the weekend of football via videos, GIFs, memes, pictures, links, Tweets and shtick.
Jake Peavy and I had similar weekends. He took a ride through Boston on a duck boat and then drove the thing to Foxborough the next day. I took a bath on the Breeders’ Cup Classic Saturday after getting a terrible tip on Moreno. Wait. Did I say we had similar weekends? What I meant was that “F*ck Jave Peavy.”
15 Positive Observations…
Geno Smith did his best Davone Bess impression in this one…
It wasn’t all bad for the Saints…
2. Florida State got a real test* from Miami Saturday night. (*Oh. By “test” I meant they absolutely clobbered them like they have everyone this season. I’ve got to start doing a better job of differentiating these types of things.)
Jameis Winston is good at football, even more gooder at handshakes.
College Gameday was in Tallahassee, where we learned spelling isn’t really a thing at FSU.
Elsewhere in the ACC, Clemson somehow did this.
3. Geez Ohio State. We get it already. We were wrong. Let’s just move on. What’s that? You need to hear us say we’re sorry? Well I don’t think that’s appropriate. Hey…don’t leave. We can work this out. We’re all adults here. Okay! We’re sorry! We’re sorry! Now can we please settle down? We have to go to my parents’ house later.
Elsewhere in the Big Ten, Nebraska had kind of a neat finish against Northwestern…
And then there was the Iowa quarterback…doing…I have no freaking idea.
Michigan State got a big win over Michigan, so here’s Sparty doing some sort of chop. It was that kind of college football weekend.
Plus Travis Jackson celebrates and America rejoices.
And finally elsewhere, the Penn State punter flops EXACTLY the way you’d expect a man named Butterworth would.
Because when that happens…
Also, this girl Deadspin found had a better Halloween than you.
5. Nick Foles threw seven TD passes Sunday. I wasn’t able to catch his postgame press conference, but I’ll just assume he said the number seven was special because he wanted to honor Emilio Estefan Jr.-who was won seven Latin Grammy Awards in his career.
Riley Cooper had a big day in the win. This did not go over well with everyone.
