OSU Lends Cal A Hand

Or more specifically, Beaver DE Jeff Van Orsow lends Cal a hand, by batting away John David Booty's last ditch pass to send the game into OT. Beavers win (despite wearing the NCAA's ugliest uniform) and Cal moves into sole possession of first place in the Pac-10.

Thanks Beevs!

And yet, not a word about the number one team in the country. These Buckeyes are awesome. This team is far better than '02, and probably transcends '68.

I'm a little disappointed. I wanted USC to show up unscared in Glendale in January, so that there asswhipping could be complete. Looks like the Buckeyes will be the only undefeated team in the country at the end of the season no matter who shows up in Glendale.

If thats the case Casca, then you might meet Texas again, After all, so far the only team that beat us is the number one team in the nation.

Sorry Kyle, as Anni or Shelly or another of the fucking lawyers might instruct you. This is settled law, besides, if anything the defeat would merely be more gruesome. It'll be the surviving team from the SEC.

Posted by: Casca on Oct. 29, 2006

Not if the SEC winner has two losses, which is entirely possible.

Also, although I believe that Ohio is clearly the best team in the country this year, If we played again the score would probably be closer. Don't look now but that little kid Colt McCoy, who played only his second ever game against Ohio State, has since then gotten good, real good.
His numbers are better than Vince Young's at this point last year.

But if we play USC in the non-title BCS game that's ok with me, I'd like to beat them again.

My day of mourning is almost over so here it is:

I am a fucking lawyer; Annie is a fucking law student. Subtle distinction to be sure, but there it is.

Secondly, Cal will hold the lead until November 18; then they will go home with their tails between their ursine butts. Pete Carroll is not pleased;four turnovers will not win football games. Glad I'm not doing the pushups and running up the steps of the Coliseum this week.

OSU is clearly the best as of now. Spit happens.

Where the Hell is Glendale? The only one I know is near Burbank and Pasadena. I'm afraid that USC will be there, but OSU will be in Tempe. I was of the distinct impression that the BCS title tiff was at the Fiesta Bowl this year;last time I looked,it was still in Tempe.

Maybe Casca has had one too many spills on his four stroker Nazi two wheeler without wearing his helmet.

lol, careful you addled old bile factory. Were I in need of a fucking lawyer, I know which of the two of you I'd turn to. Now if I needed to influence public policy, you might make the list.

On to current events. The Fiesta Bowl now does business out of a brand new stadium in Glendale, AZ vice Tempe starting this year. Now take all of your guns and pills over to your son's house and lock them up until the second week in January.

Kyle, Colt's doing well because he has some talent, and you guys play punks. There aren't many defenses on the same level as the Buckeyes, but the Wolverines have one. Alas, the folks at UofM have no receivers without Manningham, and the Buckeyes can handle him if he returns. I'm sure that Colt is better now. Trouble is that the Buckeyes are MUCH better now. The Buckeyes always have a defense, this Defense is almost as good as 2002. The difference is that the Buckeye Offense could and will play in the NFL. That should be the BCS championship... Buckeyes vs the Raiders, or the Cardinals!

Finally, you mention Colt McCoy when Troy Smith is playing Heisman ball for the Buckeyes? Where's your head at? Oh, I'll tell you! It's up the fat lady's ass!!

Posted by: Casca on Oct. 29, 2006

casca is right, I'm out in Phoenix right now and have been to the new stadium out in glendale, looks a bit like a silver ufo in the desert, but nice as hell inside. I'll look forward to Michigan and West Virginia playing there in the title game...

...and those Cal bears better watch out for my wildcats on the 11th. I think we've recovered nicely from that 45-3 beat down LSU put on us, the team psyche is like a wounded, delirious animal, we're crazy! watch out!

Posted by: Scof on Oct. 30, 2006

Cal is going to get mauled for two straight weeks then. USC plays Stanford for practice this week and then will get personal with Cal on the 18th.

It is conceivable that we can run the table on Cal, UCLA and Notre Dame, maybe enough to get us to Glendale (my ASU graduate son never mentioned the change to me), but I'm not betting on it.

Looks like we go to Pasadena to play Michagoose,unless they kick some Nutmeg butt; again, I'm not betting on it.

Oh, well, it's a shorter drive.

Posted by: shelly on Oct. 31, 2006

Oh yes, there's money to be made here. Put your money where your mouth is Scof. You want UofM over the Buckeyes? Bring it on bitch.

West Virginia? They don't belong in the top ten. They're tokens for their conference like Louisville. Shit, they'd have a claim if they played ANYONE ranked. They are a great run offense team and a mediocre everything else. In the SEC they'd be lucky to be .500.

There are lawyers who specialize in fucking? And all this time I thought "screwing the client" was just a figure of speech.

Posted by: Victor on Oct. 31, 2006

Lets try the 3way here....

Casca: I'm tellin ya man, Carr looks rabid angry this year, the buckeyes will bowdown. how you wanna do it yo? I'll place fifty on UofM. perhaps we can both paypal it to annie and she can distribute the winnings to me afterwards.

Victor: Divorce lawyers?

Shelly: How the hell could you do that to your son? Did you lose a bet? I mean its ASU for pete's sake! Your son's school colors are urine yellow and tampon red!

Posted by: Scof on Oct. 31, 2006

Dude, you're on! $50 US, Anni can hold the cash, or you can just paypal me directly. You won't be going home with the dough. I'll take the Buckeyes and even money any day! You obviously haven't followed the Buckeyes this season, and know nothing of how Jim Tressel OWNS Carr's ass. This will be SOOOO sweet.

Posted by: Casca on Oct. 31, 2006

Troubling point on the BCS roundup show tonight. In actuality, USC's loss is bad for Cal, because even if Cal beats USC, now they won't be beating an undefeated team, and the effect on their ranking won't be as great. Damn, I should have been rooting for USC.

Posted by: annika on Oct. 31, 2006

Shit, and I thought you just hated the rubbers.

Posted by: Casca on Oct. 31, 2006

It's a bet
