Wildcats Respond, Massoli Misses, Quacks Soar & Much Much More: MMQB (Sunday Style)

Not that he’s resentful or anything like that, but Phil Fulmer is gobsmacked, he says, absolutely gobsmacked that Lane Kiffin, arrogant as he is, has gotten jobs at both Tennessee and Southern Cal. And the dethroned Rocky Top coach used the CBS halftime show to air his reasoned and objective opinion.

Ah, autumn in the SEC. Makes MMA look like a pillow fight.

Wilkommen to SEC World, Jeremiah Massoli. It’s where 294 yards of O guarantees nuttin’ honey.

Commodore Vanderbilt 28, Johnny Reb 14. Guess there were some tear-stained cocktail dresses in the grove yesterday afternoon.

Joker Phillips’ UK Wildcats responded, when he gave them an on the field pep talk.

Which is, frankly, easy to do when playing the aptly monikered Zips of Akron, whose tackling was so woeful they’d be hard put to compete in the Toy Bowl.

Next up for Kentucky: The Gators. The Cats look like they’re ready to be competitive.

Those cohones you heard clanking shortly before midnight last night belong to none other than Sparty coach Mark Dantonio.

Eschewing a chance to tie with a FG in OT #1 against the not so resurgent Notre Dame Fighting Irish, the gutsy mentor called for a fake. Good work. State’s 6 won the game.

The luckless of the Irish coach appeared gloriously gobsmacked by the turn of events. (To overuse my adjective du jour.)

TD Jesus is now 0fer Michigan. Perhaps they should get Ron English on the line, set up a game against Eastern Michigan’s still winless Eagles.

It’s a double suicide watch down Clemson way.

Another late Saturday game. Another overtime affair. Another FG on the opening possession, this time by Auburn.

The Orange’s Chandler Catanzaro responded with a 3. Which was erased from the scoreboard because center Dalton Freeman had double clutched the snap. Catanzaro missed the redux.

Enter Clemson Crisis Control Contingent.

Trust me there will be more self congratulization later in the week when I post next weekend’s Seedy K’s Scintillating Selections. But just had to mention that, for the second week in a row, the kid got ‘em all right.

Thanks to Ryan Mallett, Hook ‘Em Horns, Favre U’s Golden Eagles, Auburn’s escape and UCLA’s upset of Houston.

Here are some teams flying just under that Bama/ Buckeye radar that I’ll watching in the weeks to come.

Stanford. The Tree absolutely turned Wake Forest, as my grandma would say, into hockfleisch.

Arizona. The Wildcats blew a big lead to last season’s Cinderella, Iowa. Then grabbed it back.

TCU. Horned Frogs 45, Baylor much much less.

South Carolina. The Visor is baaaaaack. And the Cocks are crowin’.

And, of course, my point a minute Oregon Ducks, who have talled 189 points in 180 minutes of play. Next up, a somewhat harder test: Arizona State, a missed extra point loser yesterday to the Badgers.

    Spartan Coach Dantonio does win the Big Brass Globes Award but the play was a big, ahem, slow to unfold. Play clock was clearly at :00. The Luck of the Irish.
