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