I thought that myself when I read that article that talked about a Data Scientist(tm)
Normally I'm a proponent of "don't link to stupid things and give them hits they shouldn't get," but sweet merciful crap:
OREGON’S OFFENSE ONLY WORKS AGAINST REALLY, REALLY BAD DEFENSES.
Yeah, that's a CFN column. I also enjoyed this line:
... the gimmicky, sped-up attack works great against most of the squishy-soft Pac 10 defenses, but as this close call proves, there’s no way, no how the Ducks could get through the ACC ... undefeated.
Yeah, the ACC is loaded with juggernauts. I'd be surprised if Oregon even went .500 against the murderer's row of Maryland, NC State, etc.
I just thought everybody could use a laugh on a boring Monday afternoon.
Looking for more reasons to not like Auburn this year? Look no further. This dude should be booted for the year. Link below. Auburn homers are trying to justify this guy's performance. Truly sickening.
look how he gained admission at AU:
For those who may have missed it, Tommy Touchdown gave an epic rant directed towards his teammates. He went on to finish the game 30/43, 350 yards with 4 TDS, 3 passing and 1 rushing in the Pats victory.
This doesn't prove a whole lot, but for those that think the 3-3-5 is just a failed scheme some loser made up to ruin our beloved Wolverines, I thought this was relevant from ESPN Insider Bruce Feldman
"Their defense came out and showed us a lot of different looks that we hadn't really seen," Thomas said. "So we had to adjust some things on the fly. But I'll give it up to their defense. They did a good job."
That 3-3-5 defensive look that so many Michigan fans hate? It was something Cal used quite a bit Saturday night, employing man coverage in the secondary and utilizing 6-foot-3, 212-pound strong safety Chris Conte to spy Thomas.
So the 3-3-5 was able to stop the unstoppable Ducks offense, maybe it is Jimmies and Joes and not x and o's.
On a totally unrelated my brain has a.d.d. note. Did anyone else notice our nose tackle A. Patterson slowing up to stay with Cam "I carry pianos on my back" Gordon on the fumble return? Go watch the clip and tell me Patterson couldn't have beat him to the house.
I am grateful for what he did for us during his time at UM, but it is time to retire Threet’s record for best conference win in the RR era. I could not have fathomed at the time that the 2008 Wisconsin win over a top 15 outfit (who then also finished the year with a similar ranking, not hitting a ND type dropoff after we beat them) would have been our biggest conference win all the way out into 2010. Time to ring up another big one in front of the home crowd. Would love to see Bielema all sad panda on the sideline.
Edit: I confused their record last year with 2008 where they finished more humbly. I don't follow the cheese heads closely enough.
