Week 9 Notes

ESPN Gameday Will Be In Lubbock

That got me thinking, I wonder what the record is for Gameday appearances for 1 team in a year. That's 3 for Texas now. My guess is the SEC is the only other conference that may have a team with 3 appearances in a year. Anyone know?
(I think I pulled this text from Deadspin)
Sick of Colt McCoy yet? Too bad. You are getting more this upcoming Saturday as UT visits Lubbock, Texas for what is likely the biggest game in the history of Tech football. And of course ESPN GameDay will be there. It’ll be the third UT game in 4 weeks for Chris, Lee and Hollywood Herbstreit. Is it even possible for McCoy to not win the Heisman after all this press? USA Today says forget it, he is the winner. Unless…It’s Colt McCoy’s world and likely his trophy, unless Texas falters this weekend to Graham Harrell’s Texas Tech team.
... Speaking of Colt McCoy

His girlfriend has been showing up on television a lot recently (whenever they show the requisite shot of Colt's dad). Apparently she's a budding ErinAndrews.

Oh
, and there is this picture floating around on the internet too.


... Speaking of ESPN College Gameday

Here are some shots I took when Gameday visited Austin for the Mizzou game. Be sure to check out what God thinks of Missouri.


... Speaking of Lubbock

This is a real picture of Lubbock. Friggin' sand aggies.



Willingham Get The Boot

After an 0-7 start (and a particularly tough schedule in my opnion), Willingham was asked to step down. I caught this gem from an AP article: "When asked if it was his decision to leave, Willingham said flatly, "no" and added he never considered resigning."

To be honest, I could care less about u dub football, but Ty is good people... and don't shed too many tears... Ty is due a $1M buyout.


Why Does This Make Me A Little More Happy Than Sad?

I Hear the Saints Are On A Diet


I'll close down this random post with something from Awful Annoucing

Damn, it sure felt like it.

P-F21: Week 10 NFL Bonus - Baseball is over, now what?

Losing baseball season isn’t like losing football, but it can still be a difficult event for some. While we are deprived of baseball season’s physical presence, we can still reconcile -- you know what, we’ll figure it out. Below are some ways you are honoring the memory or just moving right along.

P-F21: Week 7 NFL Bonus: Best news of the year!

It’s a mad world. Let’s parse out some good. Everyone gets POSITIVE bonus scores! (One thing though. I forgot to add “in the NFL” to my bonus question, but maybe you guys behaved yourselves) A Northmen (AN): “Brittney's dad will no longer be her conservator! #freebritney” She went on with a bunch of crap about TSwift, but I’ll spare you. On Brit, of course, she should have the right the fk up her life. That’s great news! +4 T-Horns (AM): “Matt Jones developing earlier than expected.” Wait, are we talking about Mac Jones? +2? Astros! (AP): “OU/Texas coming to the SEC!” This is great news. See what happened is Texas got in OU’s head, then Texas “Trojan Horsed” their themselves in the SEC, where Texas will then ruin the SEC from the inside. +3 Buddy the Chimp (BC): “Bananas.” Buddy, you get bananas all the time. Dream bigger. +3 Cornholio's Bunghole (BO): “Just destroying America is not enough for Joe Biden, so he destroyed Afghanistan. I wonder what country will be ne

1 I once watched this planetarium show on dark matter. I’m familiar with matter. I’m not saying current or future me could define it, but it is like -- stuff. However dark matter isn’t the dark stuff. Dark matter is like all the other stuff that we aren’t familiar with, and on top of that, apparently the universe contains an unknown amount of matter that we cannot observe! 2 Speaking of matter, small wins matter. Not only do small wins add up to major accomplishments, but small wins have also been shown to give enormous emotional boosts. (I think you see where I am going with this.) 3 Enough said.
