Horned Frogs PollAxed, Cam Rams Heisman Jam & Other Pigskin Pithiness: MMQB (Sunday Style)

Riddle me this, s’il vous plait, you pollstirrers?

TCU is 8-0. The Horned Frogs have outscored their opponents, 141-10 in its last four games, including two consecutive shutouts. The school was highly touted before the season, and hasn’t done a single thing that would in any way diminish its luster.

Yet the #4-ranked Horned Frogs keep getting passed by in the polls. Last week it was big name Oklahoma that did it. This week its big name Auburn that did it.

If somebody out there has a reasonable explanation for such anti-purple prejudice, please advise?

Quick baseball note. I absolutely loooooooooooove that it’s Texas vs. San Fran in the Series.

One, because I love that neither of those teams is the Yankees. Two, because it means there will be plenty of room to watch, since all those fair weather fans that only want to see the Big Name teams will tune out, leaving plenty of room in front of the TV.

If anybody can tell me why we’re supposed to worry about the fact that Fox will suffer because there will be less viewers, please advise? You think they’ll stop telecasting the World Series if the Yankees and a big market NL team don’t make it every year?

Now back to our regularly scheduled ranting.

All Hail The Mighty Quack!

I don’t want to be an I Told You So, but who’s been all over the seriously sartorial, not to mention mighty fast, tough and tenacious, Oregon Ducks since the get go?

That’s right.

The Big O outscored UCLA, 60-13 in a Thursday night showcase. The top-ranked Ducks are outscoring their foes 55-16 on the season. Quack.

And don’t they look simply marvelous in those ever changing unis? Who knew there were so many combinations of dark green, neon yellow, gray and black?

Cam’s the Man.

I don’t want to be an I Told You So, but who’s been all over Cam Newton for the Heisman since the get go?

That’s right.

Of course, nobody gave Auburn more shit for hiring Gene Chizik than I did. And here, in his second season on the Plains, he’s got the orange and blue undefeated and ranked 3d in the land.

Having Newton at QB to run Gus Malzahn’s offense doesn’t hurt.

There are 7 undefeated teams left.

Let’s say Oregon stays that way, making it an obvious lock for one spot in the fake national championship game. Let’s say, Boise loses, but only TCU, Missouri and Michigan State of the rest are left without blemish.

Who wants to bet me that the Horned Frogs don’t play the Ducks?

Didn’t think so.

If only UK could play as well in the first half as they do in the second?

Why, was that Notre Dame that lost 17-35 to Navy’s Midshipmen?

Well, yes it was.

All together now: Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!

The Not So Fighting Irish stand a rather pedestrian 4-4.

Uh, gotta run.

More on the morrow.
