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.
The 15-7-0 won’t be right with every football observation we make. In fact, our goal is simply to be right roughly 75% of the time. Or in other words, about 70% more often than your local meteorologist of choice.
15 Positive Observations…
This was actually kinda awesome.
Seriously, Peyton Manning?
Jim Nantz and Phil Simms did this game for CBS. And then did this weird promo.
2. Auburn is playing for the National Championship. Fans gathered in Toomer’s Corner to celebrate, but after realizing the SEC title game didn’t involve a Hail Mary or a last second field goal return they decided it wasn’t really even worth reveling and instead spread out through the city to clean up liter and ask old ladies if they could use some help getting across the street.
Dressing up like some sort of angelic figure is probably a bit much-but I’ve seen the Tigers’ season. It fits.
This is your potential national champion?
But then again, this guy won money for “throwing” footballs at halftime of this game-so there probably isn’t really any such thing as God.
3. Towson channeled their inner Jay-Z and treated their first FCS playoff game by going “On To The Next One”. They gave Fordham “99 Problems” and will now be “Big Pimpin'” in the quarterfinals. The Rams were essentially “D.O.A.” in the second half after the Tigers were able to “Change Clothes” and go. QB Peter Athens proved that he would “Run This Town” for at least another week and Terrance West got another chance to “Show Me What You Got”. And since there’s no way to organically work “Izzo (H.O.V.A.)” into this post, I’m just gonna wrap up. I’ll just go ahead and assume you “Can’t Knock The Hustle”.
Eastern Illinois next. The Fighting Romos. At least I assume.
Jed Collins introduces himself on Sunday Night Football by saying “Jed Collins. Washington State. Class of 1862.”
Greg Hardy one-upped him.
You thought he made it up, but here’s Wikipedia.
Your thoughts, Rob Ryan?
5. Holy crap Frank Gore is still a thing? What’s next? You’re going to tell me Willis McGahee is still playing in the NFL? Haha…I’m kidding-I swear. Just having fun. Because we all know McGahee retired years ago obviously. Obviously.
Why is this GIF so great?
