It is good to be back! Sorry about last week, but I was busy thinking about existential stuff with my old buddy Steven Ray Brown and studying for a huge freaking test. Anyway, you don’t care about that. So, here is your weekly carnival of gifs, football, and mediocrity.
It finally happened. Gator nation turned on Will Muschamp completely. The only question that remains is if he will be fired mid season or afterwords. I honestly feel sad for him. Sure it may be his fault that Florida is currrently a huge steaming pile of horse poop, but I am gonna miss the rage monster. Let’s relive the good times shall we?
Ah yes, there is the Muschamp we all know and love. Muschamp probably freaked the hell out after the game didn’t he? Oh, I bet its a good one! Let’t take a look:
What? No, that’s not what I wanted. That’s just sad. He just looks so defeated and miserable. This is the face of a man that knows his time has run out. This is the face of a man without hope. Please, if you know Will, please please please just give him a hug or something.
Anyway try and cheer yourself up with these GIFs and stuff. Oh and this clip of Lou Holtz stammering and laughing at random points
Gif of the Week
Honorable Mention: Dwayne Stanford, WR Oregon – A simply beautiful catch by Stanford here. He keeps himself in-bounds rather well and manages to come down with it, despite the two defenders. Oregon wore some sick throwbacks in this game, and looked much more like the team we saw at the beginning of the season. They looked dominant again, which is a great departure from a close win over Washington State and a loss to Arizona State. Mariota is looking much better and getting sacked less too. This Oregon team has found their form again. The Ducks do have a rough patch of their schedule coming up with back to back games against Stanford and Utah. And don’t count out Cal yet either, they have hung around in big games this year and could surprise this Oregon team.
Honorable Mention: Mike Davis, RB South Carolina – Mike dominates the living daylights out of this player with a soul crushing stiff-arm. South Carolina
earned a solid win this week beat up a cupcake! YAY!!!!
Honorable Mention: Juju Smith, WR USC – I love diving catches, you love diving catches, we all love diving catches! Also Hooray for SARKNADO getting back on track with a solid win over Arizona and a blowout over Colorado. USC could be out of the playoff already with 2 losses, but their strength of schedule in the last 5 games is very good, with them playing 3 ranked opponents. If they theoretically win out an capture the PAC 12, they could have a strong case for being included in the playoff.
Game of the Week
Honorable Mention: Oklahoma 30 vs Kansas State 31 – This game was dead even, and probably should have been Oklahoma’s win. But Oklahoma’s kicker Michael Hunnicut missed a chip shot 19 yard field goal late in the fourth. After that Oklahoma would not get the ball back again, because Kansas State embarked on a game killing drive. The game was pretty much dead even, with the notable exception being Oklahomas 2 turnovers to Kansas States’s none. This shakes up the whole Big 12 race, putting Kansas State in first, and dropping Oklahoma back to 6th in the conference. This is not a death blow to Oklahoma’s playoff hopes just yet, but things are not looking good in Norman. Meanwhile the Big 12 is wide open for anyone’s taking.
Honorable Mention: Baylor 27 vs West Virginia 41 – A huge upset for the Mountaineers here, They simply overwhelmed the Bears with copious amounts of offense, which is fitting because that’s what Baylor normally does. Dana Holgerson’s crazy fast and efficient offense machine beat Art Briles touchdown generation machine. In other words Holgerson out-Art-Briles’ed Art Briles. Clint Tricket had a great game for the Mountaineers putting up 322 yards and three touchdowns. Baylor had a rare day where they shot themselves in the foot. And OH MY GOD did they shoot themselves in the foot. They put up a critical failure of 185 yards of penalties. This is an entirely uncharacteristic day for a usually pretty disciplined Baylor squad. Anyway Baylor can still win the Big 12 and get into the playoffs, but this also opens up the door for tons of other Big 12 scenarios, like pretty much anyone can win the Big 12 now, outside of Texas Tech, Iowa State, and the factory of sadness that is Kansas football.
