Cats vs Weber

Well, well, well the Cats go to Ogden tomorrow to take on Weber State in what is the first of seven "must win" games for the Bobcats. Don't you love the term "must win"? Like some games aren't must win. I know, if you've clinched your division blah, blah. Still, all games are must wins, especially if you root for MSU. Weber is tough. They are ranked 11th in the I-AA and have the best QB in the conference. I wish I felt good about this game but the truth is that I don't. Yes, the Cats looked better against UNC than they did against Dixie State, but I still wasn't blown away especially on the offensive side of the ball. I know that Coach Ash plays conservative and that he limits the plays he runs. That's all fine and dandy if you're the cream of the conference. My problem with that approach is that when it comes time to let it all hang out, your players don't know what to do. I love seeing the Bobcats blow teams out. It relaxes me. Beer tastes better as does whiskey and vodka, hell pick a drink, it tastes better when the Cats are up by 30. And I don't overly excited and spit my sunflower seeds into the hair of the lady sitting in front of me. I can't remember her name. Lovely woman and her husband is a rowdy rooter. It will be fun to see how big there three girls are this year.

The fact is this, if the Cats lose more than one conference game, they have no chance at the post season. They have the talent, they have the coaches. It just a matter of execution and desire. Tomorrow will really show me what this team is made of.

Meanwhile, in the land of the dark pink.........

The grizzlies have the weekend off before taking on Cal Poly next week for homecoming in Missoula. If you ever get a chance to go to homecoming in Missoula, pass on it. Its the largest mixture of hippies and potheads outside of a Phish concert that you can find in the western hemisphere. The grizzlies backed into a win at Fagstaff last week (oops, forgot the "l". No I didn't. Its what they deserve for handing one to the griz). As I stated two weeks ago "There is something about NAU and how they just make a mess in their pants when they play the griz. "

I really don't know how I can be right this much and not have my own sports talk show. Its amazing really. I truly am a diamond in the rough. And how much fun would it be to be able to make fun of grizzly fans and Irish fans every week? I don't thnk the amount of fun could be measured in human terms.

Speaking of the Irish, they truly backed into one as well. Are you fucking kidding me Purdue? Are you trying to make Jimmy Clausen look like the second coming of Joe Montana? I hope the Boilermakers lose every game this season after that pathetic defensive stand. Clausen could have thrown left handed on that drive and the Purdue defense couldn't have stopped him.

This week the Irish get my Washington Huskies. This is a much improved Husky team and will be the first really good defense the Irish have seen all year. Look for Clausen to get hit often and spend a lot of him on his back (as opposed to all fours like he's used to heyoooooooooo!!). Also look for Coach Lardbelly to finish of a 24 inch pizza by himself at halftime. Don't you Irish fans get excited if they win this one. UW is still a team on the rebound so this is a no win situation for the Irish. Unless they come away winning by 20, this is a defeat.

The 3M Company takes on Glasgow this week. I don't think there is any other town except for maybe Chinook that I love seeing Malta beat. I was going to say "I don't think there is a town I hate more except for maybe Chinook than Glasgow" but I changed it to be more positive. Its all part of the kinder, gentler me. That and the fact that my dad was born in Chinook so I really don't hate the town. Actually, I feel sorry for the kids from Chinook. Their mascot is the Sugarbeeters and their school colors are orange and black. It breaks your heart actually. Knowing those poor little buggers have to root for a member of the tuber family (beta vulgaris). Is this a mascot that sends fear into the heart of an opponent? I think not.

Look at its little arms churning the eggbeaters!! Its hilarious. I expect to see something like this on Yo Gabba Gabba. Anyway, I do hate Glasgow and hope the Mustangs party stomp the hell out of them. Malta's D has not given up a point the last two games but Glasgow has some talent (finally) and this should be a good game.

Alright, that's all for now. So here's how we are rooting 1) for the Cats over Weber, 2)the bye week over the u of m, 3) the Huskies over the nutless wonders from Southbend, and 4) the Mustangs over Glasgow.

Enjoy your weekend.

Go Cats!!

Not to be nit picky, but the hippies in Missoula generally hate football and I highly doubt they'd go to even homecoming.

Missoula is nothing but hippies. It has the only Hooters in America where the waitresses don't shave their armpits.
