20,000 Hit Party!

TINO Sports Page is going to reach the 20,000 hit mark this morning. That counts the hits since moving it here to WordPress from Blogger sometime in June. May not be much but at least I know that some of the crap I’m force feeding people is getting read a little bit.

In honor of our 20,000 hits I thought we would have some beer and women over for today as I take some time to thank some people and places in a big link dump (in no particular order) and use it as an excuse to post pics of scantly clad women.

  • Thanks to the guys and gals at my site There is NO Offseason for listening to me babble there and then clicking on the stuff over here as well.
  • Thanks to our affiliate sites Cowboys Pride and The Sports Zone for letting me push my stuff on their members as well.
  • Thanks to affiliate Pigskin Heaven for leaving up the Ricky Williams comic and video they thought was inappropriate, even if they did move it to a forum I can’t post in as they comment on it.
  • Thanks to the people that click the little “Keep Reading” thingy like below here and actually visit the blog. Only you know that the good stuff is hid behind door #3.

BCS can bite themselves

If everything plays out right the BCS can bite themselves. If Hawaii can manage to beat Washington next weekend and Kansas gets past Missouri and wins the Big 12, there will be two teams left unbeaten. Wouldn’t that be tasty?

An argument against a playoff and for the BCS is that the whole season is a playoff. Now if both of these teams make it unbeaten and one is left out (Hawaii) it wouldn’t be the first time but it sure wouldn’t look right. Ok, your going to start with the “Who have they beaten?”-that is besides the point. I’m talking about their argument that the whole season is a playoff. If they keep leaving unbeaten teams out they should be able to use that argument. If you make the “Who have they beaten” argument Ohio State should not really be sitting where they are. Youngstown State, Akron, and Kent State are not real tough opponents and the Big Ten sucked BIG TIME this year.

LSU falling to Arkansas was a kick in the ass. Depending on the way the ball rolled the BCS had to hope for LSU vs. Ohio State. OSU still has a very good chance to land in the title game with some help. Chances are they will even make it in over Hawaii if Hawaii goes unbeaten. That really grinds my gears.

Football Feast Thursday!

Thanksgiving and football. Up until just a few years ago family and friends got together for the annual Bloated Bowl. After pounding as much bird flesh, mashed potatoes and gravy and beer into us as possible we would take the block long walk to the park. Spectacular pigskin play ensued. My wife earned the nickname “The Wall” a few years ago after my sissy of a cousin ran into her as she stood still and then he lay on the ground crying holding his knee.

Now the bloated bowl seems to be retired. The kids got older and faster and we got older and slower. People moved away, blah, blah, blah. I miss it but after a flag football game where the adults took on the kids at the alternative school I work at last week, I realize I really am getting too old for this shit. Don’t get me wrong, we kicked their ass. I had the play of the day still getting talked about this week, going up for the ball and getting flattened by a kid that has about 40 lbs on me. I jumped up off the ground and spiked the ball in his face. I masked how hurt I was and my stuff down below got pinched and didn’t get better until a few plays later. Worse part about it was that I got jacked up by a kid in orange Rex Grossman jersey.

But I digress…Thanksgiving and football. Now it consists of the same prep. Lots of food and beer. Now there is more laying around watching the games on TV and checking my fantasy scores. I have a huge fantasy game this weekend against a IDP Division rival. Winner will likely take the division with one week to play after that before the playoffs.

So let’s talk about some games! One game we will not talk about outside this paragraph is the Colts and Falcons. There are a few reasons for this. One, the NFL Network is robbing me of viewing this game and I hate the bastards for it! 2, it’s the friggen Colts and Falcons, does that really count as a game? Why do I bitch than you ask? I bitch because eventually the NFL is gong to get the guessing game right when making the schedule and they will rob those with out the NFLN of what they hope is the game of the year. I’m just going to guess here but I’m thinking they thought this was going to be Manning vs. Vick, not Manning versus Joeyron Harringtonwich. How long before they tamper with tradition and take away the Lions or Cowboys game? A big middle finger to you NFL, I’m watching NCAA football Thursday Night!

Let’s move on to what should be practice games for the Cowboys and Packers who will meet week 13 (by the way if you don’t have NFL Network, your screwed on that one), some Thanksgiving history, and some college football. And you know I have to throw a cheerleader in, I can’t leave you hanging with the bird above.

NCAA Jabber 11/13/07

 

They say that there should not be a playoff in College Football because the whole season is a playoff. That theory is not standing up right now as the Kansas Jayhawks sit at 10-0 and are ranked #3 in the BCS and #4 in the Coaches and Harris Poll. If the season ended today they would not be in the BCS Championship game. Dennis Dodd thinks they are the #1 team right now.

MGOBLOG seems to think that Lloyd Carr will announce his reteirment soon.

Three separate sources indicate that Carr has made his decision to retire official and people around the athletic department are being told. The formal announcement will come after the Ohio State game, possibly at the Monday press conference, possibly a day or two later.

My Mascot is bigger than your Mascot is something that Alabama may be able to say on game day…

During a joint session between the First Year Council and the SGA Senate, the two bodies passed a resolution that will research bringing a live elephant to campus during football games to add school spirit.

NCAA Salad tossed in a few hours

In a few short hours the NCAA football season was turned upside down. First came the loss of LSU to Kentucky, which should end their reign as the undisputed #1 team in college football. Triple overtime in Kentucky. WOW!

When the score of the LSU game was announced in Berkley, California there was an uproar. All Cal had to do was get past Oregon State and the top spot would be theirs. Then we seen an episode of “When Redshirt Freshman with the game in their hands Attack.”

I saw the field and I thought I could get around that guy,” Kevin Riley said. “It just didn’t happen.”

The Golden Bears were on their way to a tie to take the game to overtime (or a shot at winning) which would have made for an amazing comeback had they won. But with 14 seconds left the Bears ran one more play. It should have been endzone or throw it away but the kid thought he could run it fourteen yards on a very fast Oregon State D. Just like that, Cal’s possible bid for #1 came to an end. Can’t put it all on Riley, he doesn’t play defense and had a great game up until that play…but that is what will be remembered.

BTW, Kudos to the Versus Network on a VERY good game they were able to air in their first year dabbling in college football.

Not the best quality (neither was the play) but we have some video here…

So where does that leave us as the BCS rankings are on the way?
