Week 5 Roundup

There were a couple of wild games this week in college football in what people are calling Upset Saturday, where 4 of the Top Ten teams lost to unranked teams.

South Florida 21 West Virginia 13
Apparently the rejected recruits from Miami, Florida St. and Florida are pretty talented after all. The South Florida Bulls and their athletic defense shut down the White/Slaton duo, holding them to a combined 90 rushing yards. It looks like their might be a new contender for the Big East crown this year.

Colorado 27 Oklahoma 24
I bet those Colorado parents are happy now that the kids only get 2 weeks off before the start of their summer conditioning program if it leads to wins like this one over big bad Oklahoma. Dan Hawkins said it best, "IT'S DIVISION ONE FOOTBALL! IT'S THE BIG 12!!" Props to Coach Hawkins, Ralphie and the rest of the Colorado Buffaloes on taking down the hated Sooners and their shitty coach, Bob Stoops. I think this picture sums up the feeling of every Sooner fan:

Michigan 28 Northwestern 16
Fuck Michigan. They fucked up my parlays this weekend. Mike Hart and Chad Henne are still garbage.

Auburn 20 Florida 17
The Auburn Tigers beat the Gators in Gainesville in a game where the defending national champions were down early. Auburn hung on for the victory to give the Gators their first loss of the season. Hopefully they can pull their shit together and beat LSU next week.

Kansas St. 41 Texas 21
I guess the handful of Wildcat fans in Austin waving the Kansas St. "Power Towel" were the difference in this one. Or it might have been Colt McCoy's 4 picks and the dismal play by the Longhorns special teams, allowing a punt and kick return for touchdowns. Texas played terrible and goes into the Red River Shootout this week in poor shape.

USC 27 Washington 24
I sincerely hope this game was an aberration for the Trojans, because they played absolutely fucking terrible. USC committed 16 penalties for a total of 161 yards. This is unacceptable. Not only that, but starting center Kris O'Dowd, starting right guard, Chilo Rachal, and cornerback Shareece Wright all went down with injuries and JD Booty threw 2 picks. The lone bright spots were Stafon Johnson and Chauncey Washington rushing for over a 100 yards each. Carroll better iron out the kinks soon. A more in depth analysis will be posted tonight.

The "power towels" were definitely in play this weekend. Texas had this loss coming from a mile away. McCoy again proved that last year, he benefited a whole lot from a dominant offensive line, while this year he struggles when pressured.

How the hell do we outgain Washington 400 and some yards to like 150 and barely win by 3? I don't get it. And don't give me that seattle rain bullshit.You would think Booty has some experience working with slick balls (pun intended).

where's Rocky when you need him? I think it's time to start placing the blame for our under-achieving offense on Booty.
