Last year was a bad winter in Wisconsin. Goes without saying.

But this storm? This storm is a bad omen. We have a forecast of 1-2 inches on Friday right? It moves up to 3 to 6 on Saturday. Now? It’s 5 to 7 with Blowing and drifting snow.

And as patterns go? It’s 2007-2008 all over again. The forecast of snow? It just keeps going up. And up. And up.

This state is trying to kill me.

UPDATE: 5 to 7 has doubled back to 2 to 5. Less of tilt.

I believe the Big 12 South should secede.

I believe Texas is going to get screwed. They beat Oklahoma on a neutral site. The Texas Tech experience does not matter. Texas beat Oklahoma. Neutral site. It took a fluke drop for Tech to beat Texas in Lubbock and Tech gave everything, and the Roz means irvrething for that game.

But the Grandies are in the tank for Oklahoma. Sam Bradford is an American hero. Joaquin Iglesias is a Holy Wide Receiver. And DeMarco Murray? He’s spectacular.

*sigh*

But Michael Crabtree? He’s the best receiver in the Big 12. And even if Graham Harrell is gone? Taylor Potts is dreamy. Or a damn dirty three-starred hippie. Whatever. Boy needs to remember the first rule of picture day.


GET A HAIRCUT HIPPIE!

And Oklahoma State’s is powered by the wind. And their most key triplets shall be returning. High scores for everybody! Yaaay!

Baylor will win six games next year and a bowl game by 2010. What in the name of Grant Teaff has is going on with Baylor? Hope. Hope and Robert Griffin.

And Texas A&M becoming a basketball school? I have three words as a bitter Packer fan for that.

HAW, YA BURNT!

I am thankful for video games…

It allows me to ignore the blog and not feel bad about it.

And it’s not like I have a new system or anything. I have a PS2. I’m playing Bully. Re-playing Bully. It’s why I’m ignoring you.

A Game from 2006 has taken over. What are you going to do about?

Be back on Sunday. Or Saturday if the mood strikes.

Bye.

So? Can Utah Make the National Championship Game?

Filed under: Analysis,Fuhbawls,Utah will make you hurt. — by Andrew @ 10:55 pm

Yes, in the same sort of way a Democrat could have won in Oklahoma.

Because here’s how it needs to happen. And exactly this way.

1. Beat San Diego State: Goes without saying. Win by 70 if you could.
2. Florida State beats Florida.
3. Auburn beats Alabama.
4. Baylor beats Texas Tech.
5. Oklahoma State beats Oklahoma.
6. Florida beats Alabama.
7. Missouri beats Texas.
8. UCLA beats USC.

And even then? Utah still would have to vault Penn State to make a case for themselves. Because the Big 10 love to enter the National Championship through the backdoor. And lose by 30.

Thanks for stopping in, Utah. Enjoy facing the hot team that doesn’t make the BCS.

First graders aren’t the only thing giving me a stomachache.

Enough with the “Will Brett Favre be a better quarterback than Aaron Rodgers if he stayed?” question. It’s moot. Flat out. Apples and Oranges.

I know what you’re saying. The AFC East is a much tougher division than the NFC North. Favre’s completing 70% of his own passes. The Jets have a chance at making the Super Bowl, right? Let me tell you something. There are several reasons why the Jets Packer comparison is moot and we can start with that whole “The AFC East has every team over .500” chestnut.

1. The AFC East has 8 winnable games.

They have a schedule that gives them half a season versus the AFC and NFC West, and while Arizona can be a challenge when Warner has his stride going, and if Denver has their shootout on (which hasn’t happened much lately) they can get the duke, if this doesn’t give you 6 wins? Your coach should be fired.

On the other hand? The Packers have the AFC and NFC South. The AFC South has two challenges and a third team that’s dangerous at home. And the NFC South has been winning most of their winnable games. (Does that mean they are getting fat of the North? Perhaps. But there’s only one gimme in the NFC North. Hi Detroit.)

By a comparison of scheduling by opponents records?
Green Bay 65-56
Jets 55-66-1

That’s about 80 percentage points. Or a game or two in terms of real value. And both teams have pretty downy end of the season.

2. The Running Game.

Now while Ryan Grant has not been special like last year, he has been highly competent. But in comparison to the Jets? There has not been been much running done. The main guys have got about 4 yards per carry. The Jets? 4.6. And the Jets have 13 scores in comparison to the Packers 9. So what does this mean? The Jets quarterback just needs to be merely competent.

3. The Jets interior is highly superior.

In the back seven and the skill positions? The skill sets are roughly equal. But with the additions of Alan Faneca, Damien Woody, and Kris Jenkins? This team can dominate the ball on both sides of the line. And this means that when Favre is bad Brett? The Jets can still win games.

So what does it all mean? It means if the Packers decided to take Brett back? They would still struggle for consistency. They may be on the right side of .500, but then again? Bad Brett could have cost them versus Seattle or something.

Bye.

And as for the finals of the Paradise Jam

If Brian Butch was granted a 27th year of eligibility, maybe I could see UConn getting upset versus your Wisconsin Badgers, but unless Jon Leuer can get Hasheem Thabeet to cover his Brad Lohausian game? The Badgers are going to struggle.

UConn should win by fifteen on paper. I can see that. Something like 76-60.

And remember? Who said Cal Poly could beat Wisco?

Me. I know my Badgers. They are overrated or just plain bad.

UPDATE: UConn 76-Wisconsin 57. I’m missing being scary good by 3.

Sorry about yesterday…

I was finding myself getting pulled back in to loving fantasy football. I rose up and kicked a little ass for the USA. I sewed a flag, I climbed a mountain, and I flew on an eagle.
