The other good news is that a lot of young players saw plenty of action. If they can shore up the press coverage on the corners and get some pressure on the QB they could be pretty good.
The best part of the day was sitting on the deck of athletic director Peter Fields' box and drinking his ice cold beers. Jan Stenerud was in the box as well. On of the good guys in the NFL. Whats that you say? You didn't know he was a graduate of MSU? Read is biography. Its pretty cool. By the way, he is in the FREAKIN NFL HALL OF FAME!!!!! How many griz are in the hall of fame? About as many teeth as are in a chicken's mouth.
(L to R) MSU grad former Bobcat great and NFL Hall of Famer Jan Stenerud, MRM, and Bob T.
In the land of the dark pink, the griz travel to Flagstaff to take on Northern Arizona. I'm going to DVR this game but really I don't know why. There is something about NAU and how they just make a mess in their pants when they play the griz. I don't think this year will be any different. The griz played alright against a mediocre Portland State team in missoula last week. Recent history suggests that the griz win this in a walk. Makes me almost puke in my mouth.
Roberta Hauckaloogie would have made a great Nazi. Hitler would have loved this guy.
So the goldenhomos of Notre Dame backed into a win at home last week against Michigan State. Remember, the Spartans beat the Bobcats in East Lansing. If you think for two minutes if the Irish could come to Bozeman and get away with a win, you are sadly mistaken. Poor coaching by the Spartans down the stretch cost them a victory in South Bend. This after Michigan totally dominated the Irish in Ann Arbor the week before. ND is now 2-1. Here is how they finish. 9-3 at the best and they could still easily go 6-6. They gave up 68 points the last two weeks and still have to play USC, WA and Stanford all off which have more speed and better coaching than the Irish. Boston College has given them fits the last few years as have Navy and Pitt. Combine this with the fact that Charlie Weiss sucks and well, you just don't get your hopes up if your an Irish fan. If Weiss was a non-Caucasian, he'd be fired by now. They will probably beat Purdue this week but I say they still give up 24 points. Be careful though, this could be a trap game. Purdue played Oregon tough on the road before wetting themselves against Northern Illinois. It depends on which Purdue team shows up. If we get lucky and Purdue can pull this out, it could be the start of a 4 game losing streak for the Irish. Keep your fingers crossed.
Charlie Weiss reacts to his week two loss against Michigan.
Malta crushed Colstrip at homecoming for the Mustangs this past Friday 26-0. This team is young and probably won't make a deep playoff run, but they do have the potential to ruin a season for a team or two.
Lets look at a couple of NFL players before we go. First there's Brady Quinn. Has an outstanding QB rating of 66.9. That puts him 27th out of 32 in the NFL. Pretty lofty company there Brady. Way to live up to the hype. At his current rate, he will throw 8 touchdowns and 16 interceptions this year. I'm sold on this guy. Dust off a place for him in Canton right now.
Bret Assclown in Minnesota hasn't thrown a pick yet. Hmmmmm. Childress must really have something on Favre to keep him this reined in. Of course when you're shot putting the ball five yards on screen plays, its tough to throw a pick. Minnesota hasn't played anyone of note yet but look for Farve to try to turn it loose this Sunday against a tough 49er team. His ego will not let him sit idly by and let Adrian Peterson be the hero. Not for one second. He is ready to show us all that he "can still play" and that "no one has more fun out there". I can hardly wait for him to screw over the Vikings. It will be the highlight of the season.
