Sunday Morning QB: Irritable Bowl Syndrome & Romeo, Oh Romeo

Oh, if only I were clever enough to have myself created that most righteous phrase — irritable bowl syndrome. Sigh. I must give credit where due, to Tim Cowlishaw on “Around the Horn.” That due now having been paid, I’m sure I’ll continue to use it in the future with impunity, and without any further footnoting.

The reason for my vexation, and why his eminence Joey the Vig is sitting in his manse smiling, and why I’m bluer than the faux turf of the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl, is what my favored Utah State Aggies did yesterday in Boise. Which is blow a 13 point lead in the last four minutes plus to Ohio U.’s Bobcats, falling 23-24.

Otherwise, I’d be sitting pretty in The Vig’s pool, at 3-0.

Temple’s Owls won, bashing Wyoming from the get go in Albequerque.

Louisiana Lafayette proved that the Lord giveth, as well as taketh away. The Rajun Cajuns nailed a 50 yard FG as time ran out to win the New Orleans Bowl. The most surprising stat of that game, which included 470 yards in the air with 3 TDs for Lou La’s QB Blaine Gautier, was the announced attendance (which looked legit on TV) of 42,841.

So, I’m 2-1 after the first day of bowl play. It could be worse. Obviously.

Looking for Boise State and TCU to put their mettle on display in this week’s games.

I’ve only revealed my prognostications in bowl games to be contested before Christmas Eve. (It’s called a tease, so you’ll come back for more pith in the days and weeks to come.)

I like Virginia Tech in the BCS Game That Shouldn’t Be over Michigan. And I did so before I came to know the info provided by none other than Joey the Vig himself.

Wolverine mentor Brady Hoke is on record that he’ll allow his maize and blue charges to police themselves after the team journeys to the Crescent City.

Hoke might check with Rocky Long, San Diego State coach, to learn how the latter’s Aztecs fared after spending time experiencing the pleasures of the French Quarter.

Penn State’s QB was hospitalized after a locker room fight with one of the Nittany Lion wideouts.

Let me coin a phrase: How the mighty have fallen.

Is that new Arizona State coach Todd Graham a mensch or what?

The guy makes Bobby Petrino seem stable, loyal, the paradigm of virtue.

In case you haven’t noticed, Tim Tebow.

Jerry Sandusky’s attorney, acknowledging that his client indeed showered with his adolescent “friends,” says Sandusky’s purpose was to teach those boys the proper way to shower. Really?

Remember the infamous Twinkie Defense? Well, it is now surpassed by the Hygiene Defense.

Aaron Rogers proved he’s no — all together now — Tim Tebow. He couldn’t bring the formerly undefeated Packers back against KC. Romeo Crennel’s Chiefs won 19-14.

Indianapolis beat Tennessee.

No undefeated teams. No winless teams.
