P-F09: Week 8 NCAA Results

updated 10/26/09 4:46PM

NCAA SCOREBOARD

Point summaries for Week 8:
The top and the bottom of the league look a little different this week. Jess' mighty 11 vaulted him 3 spots to take the lead from Justin, who scored one less than last week with 7. Amanda got tired of being at the bottom and sent in a card with 13 of 15 winners. Nice! That was enough to drop Gary to the rear and also move reigning champ Cain down a spot to 2nd to last.

Weekly Winner(s): AN (13) +3 points
NCAA dubs (10+): AN, JHa (2nd straight week), JHo +3 points
Bonus Question: "I was going to pose the question - Will A&M get it's first win in Lubbock since 1995? - but I'm afraid everyone will pick the same answer. Instead, who will score the most points this week?" Nuts, A&M not only won, the answer to the chosen question was almost A&M!! , KW, CG, JN, CJ, KH, RH, RK +3 *
Paid: DW, KH, CC, KZ, RH, JHa, CJ, CG, A-C, BD, JN, JC +1

* Gary called his own number and then scored 7... he *should* get negative bonus points for that...



THE AGGIES DID IT!! They won in Lubbock for the first time since 1995 or 1993 or whatever it was (I'm too lazy to look it up). How did they do it, you ask? I have no idea. The game had no TV coverage what-so-ever. Baylor called, they want their Big 12 media status back.



Arkansas shot their wad, I said it.




The Big 12 North is straight up garbage. EDSBS.com notes that K-State could win the North division and not be bowl eligible.

Aggies, don't go thinking your losing streak is too awesome. Iowa State hadn't won in Lincoln since 1977, but Nebraska turned the ball over 8 times (4 inside the ISU 5 yrd line) in their 9-7 loss to Iowa State Saturday. On second thought, this effort would go unnoticed if they were in the SEC. Outstanding defensive performance!




Here is the section where I refuse to rant about how terrible (and potentially criminal) the refs have been in the SEC this year. Not just we-don't-call-holding-in-the-Big12 bad, like we-are-"surprisingly"-making-bad-calls-that-benefit-our-best-teams bad.

I don't have any strong like or dislike of either Florida or 'Bama (although with half the league being SEC fans, you may), but Bama and Florida rank 80th and 84th in passing offense, respectively. 'Bama has only 2 offensive TDs in the past 3 games.

I wonder what it feels like to be an Iowa fan this year?



Back before he was a responsible father, I once went out bar hopping with Kirby and his Dad (who is arguably the REAL most interesting man in the world). After kicking back a few, responding to a young bride-to-be looking for some salt for her margarita that he had salt in his pants, but before his Dad ditched us so he could get his party on without us... Kirby threw a backwards dart in a bar (and dart room) chock full of people. This wasn't just a casual backward dart, this dart would have gone through a person if they had been in its path. The best part of the throw was that he did it without hesitation *and* it hit near the center of the board.

Kirby, this clip is for you...

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. Sleep Astros! (AP): “Go to sleep on time during the week!” (3)  -- apparently you aren’t into MACtion Beelzebubbles (CC): “Now I can get some decent sleep during the work week” (3) More time for football 18 National Championships (CG): “Plenty of football and golf” (2) Bite a Kneecap Offs (RK): “MACtion!” (4) -- yes!

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.
