Dink & Dunk: Draw it up in the Dirt Edition

Wink Dinkins and Buck Dunkowitz invented the "Fumblerooski to the Midget" play back in '87. And Houston Nutt gets all the credit. Dammit.

  • When I die, should I be fortunate enough to go to heaven, my personal paradise will contain and enless supply of clear liquor, midgets, and trick football plays. We hit the trifecta this weekend. A little slice of heaven on earth:

  • Speaking of trickeration, Urban Meyer pulled this lovely doo-dad straight out of my seventh grade regional championship game, pulling the thankfully-rare "jump pass" out for Tim Tebow's first career touchdown toss. It's probably abou the sissiest thing I've seen in my years of watching football, but I probably wouldn't say that to Tebow's face.

    Vern Lundquist apparently thinks that Urban learned that from Lou Holtz. While I don't doubt for a minute that Urban learned how to love a woman, scold a child, and (according to Orson at least) ignore suspensions before critical games, this seems like a bit of a stretch. It seems much more likely he learned it from Joe Tiller and his magical "Basketball on Turf" concept.

  • Tyrone Willingham came within a hair's breadth of knocking off Southern Cal this week, but the clock ran out while Willingham was still trying to decide which play to call. Husky fans, welcome to your life for the next two to four years.
    Hey, at least he was fully prepared for their PAT playcall:

  • For any of you who watched the Cal-Oregon game, my apologies, because you are now colorblind. In a perfect storm of the earth's most hideous jerseys, Cal rode their "putrid piss" shaded uniforms to an impressive victory.
    Color schemes like that angry up the blood. Just ask Dante Rosario who got so frustrated he ninja-kicked a Cal player in the back. The referees threw a flag, but waved off the call.

    Killin' ain't fair, but somebody's gotta do it.

  • And finally, an open letter to DeShaun Jackson, Darrin McFadden, and C.J. Spiller:
    Dear Resident,

    You run very, very, very fast. Scary fast.

    Dink & Dunk

completely pathetic that you would lay the loss to Southern Call on Ty Willingham. Fact is, he almost beat Southern Cal, similar to Charlie Weis ( with a far less talented team), and he got jobbed by the refs.

from what i understand, the refs "jobbed" pete carroll by having a midfield conference after a first down that put washington at the USC 10 or something, delaying the start of the clock. ty still didn't get a play off.

oh. and the team he almost beat is short 1 reggie bush and 1 matt leinart.

Funny you posted the Jump Pass by Florida... I was just perusing the ND web site looking for some new wallpaper to annoy my cow-orkers with (yes, I work at Ohio State) and ran across a video of the 1957 ND-Oklahoma game... Jump Passes abound in this one!
