Irish Rout Nittany Lions

After nearly a decade of poor performances, bad coaching, under performing atheletes and overall Football Depression…the Irish are officially back.  Watching them last week against Georgia Tech, they looked like a great team that was having first game jitters.  They squeaked out a touch victory mostly with amazing defensive plays which kept GT from scoring more than they did.

But if this second game of the season vs the Nittany Lions of Penn State is any indication of the season we are going to witness with Notre Dame, we should all put our money on Gold.  They have utterly destroyed the 19th ranked team in college football.  Games between top 20 teams, even early in the season, tend to be closer than (at present 41-3) the rank whipping we’re witnessing right now.

Brady Quinn looks great, passing well, making good decisions and just overall being a leader.  The Irish defense has looked fast, strong and versatile.  Granted, Penn State has looked horrible but I credit the Irish coaching staff for having prepared their men on exactly what the Lions were up to and great execution.

Bottom line: the fear that Notre Dame struck in the hearts of fans of every conference is back.  And rightly so.

OU Sooners Boot Bomar

Starting quarterback Rhett Bomar has been permanently kicked off the OU Sooner’s football team.

Apparently he and teammate J.D. Quinn received money for work not done from none other than Big Red Sports and Imports (you know, “I-35………NORMAN!”), a car dealership located in Norman, OK.

For anyone who has spent more than 7 minutes in Oklahoma, you know which dealership I’m talking about. They have probably THE most annoying commercials on television, although some recent competitors have been gaining ground in the department.

In the coming hours, days, and weeks (even months and years knowing some OU fans) there will be no end to the wailing and gnashing of teeth over this. Bomar was slated to take OU back to the big time, a BCS berth and national glory pitching the ball to Adrian Peterson and passing when that wasn’t working.

Instead Bomar has plenty of time to “work” now. In fact, he can probably get a job in just a few days at the FIRE SALE that Big Red Sports is most likely going to have. He can help them unload all their unsold cars at “discounted” prices to buyers with low moral and ethical standards…..sort of like his own.

So if you’re a Sooner fan I would imagine you’ll be pretty upset for a while, and rightfully so. A 20-something has YET AGAIN turned you and your kind into the laughing stock of the college football world. But if you’re Rhett Bomar, things aren’t quite as bad as they seem.

You see, even had he been allowed to stay. Even had he taken the Sooners to a BCS game, even the big one, and even had they won it….once….twice……dare I say three times??? Even had all that happened, Bomar’s big payout would most likely have mimicked fellow superstar alums like Jason “knees and ankles” White and Josh “I’d rather coach than play in the NFL” Heupel: a lucratic career in the Oklahoma City metro area pimping his likeness and voice out to sleazy car dealerships hoping to capitalize on his newly acquired fame.

Well, he got the fame without winning.  And he got the sleazy car dealership to boot.  Can you say ‘irony’? Of course you can’t. You went to OU.

P.S. Go Pokes!
