Recappin’ the weekend of action with a little attitude…
Les Runs It Up On Petrino
Full disclosure, I love Les Miles. I’ve loved him since the 2007 Auburn-LSU game where Les, with a timeout left, trailing 23-24, let the clock roll down to 8 sec before calling a lob to the end zone, instead of setting up the game winning FG.
You know how chowder-heads say wicked awesome? That play call was stupid-awesome. Ever since that game I’ve watched him with the same curiosity with which I watch the Jackass movies. By the way, I also love the Jackass movies.
As I said in my Uncensored Play-By-Play of the LSU-Arkansas game, I have no problem with Les Miles not calling off the dogs in the game against Arkansas on Friday; in fact, the current BCS system demands it. The difference between Les Miles running up the score and Bill Belichick running up the score is level of excitement and enjoyment. Belichick runs up the score like he’s a stern father spanking his son, “This will turn you into a man!” Miles runs up the score like he’s on a hot streak at the craps table on a bachelor party in Vegas. He’s laughing, he’s fist-pumping, he’s humping the ground. I think that’s what Bobby Petrino was pissed off about. It wasn’t the FG with 5 minutes left to stretch a 21 point lead to a 24 point lead; it was the pure elation Petrino saw when he looked across the field at Les that really pissed him off.
Nobody loves winning more than Steve Spurrier. Nobody enjoys winning more than Les Miles.
Even When They Lose, Bama Wins
Alabama easily took care of Auburn in the Tree Poison Bowl to all but lock up a spot in the BCS Championship game. That means the loss at home to LSU was the best thing that ever happened to this team them aside from Trent Richardson’s parents deciding to have sex sometime in October of 1989. Bama gets to sit at home and watch an undefeated LSU team try to earn another shot to beat them again. While LSU players are trying not blowing out a knee before the National Championship game, Alabama players will be at a party trying not to catch an STD.
Dawgs Beat Up on Nerdy Engineers
Georgia picked up a big win over in-state rival Georgia Tech, in a game Georgia Tech students will remember as, “That one time girls were on our campus.” It was a game Georgia should have won easily and they did. Georgia is a good team but we all saw that LSU does to good teams on Friday.
Tough Time to be a Gator
Florida fans are looking for the “Gun” from Steve Spurrier’s old “Fun & Gun Offense” so they can put themselves out of their own misery. Watching Florida’s offense is like watching a morbidly obese man slowly eat himself to death, but enough about Charlie Weis. Hey-now!
But, it could be worse; your old hero of a head coach could accept a new job and potentially coach against you in the bowl game. Wait, what that? Really? What a dick. That guy hates his children.
Worse time to be a Vol
With their first loss to Kentucky since 1986, Tennessee finishes the season 5-7 (1-7 SEC) is now officially a Woman’s Basketball school. Fire Derek Dooley immediately. It won’t get any better. Seriously, hire Mike Leach right now. It would be an absolute steal.
Honey Badger – CB, LSU – Eight Tackles, two forced fumbles, a fumble recovery and this 92-yard punt return for a TD.
Steve Spurrier – Head Coach South Carolina – A win over Rival Clemson gives the Gamecocks 10 wins despite losing Marcus Lattimore and Stephen Garcia for a large part of the season. The Old Ball Coach can still do it. Urban Meyer left Florida for an easier job. Steve Spurrier left Florida for a harder job. That’s all you need to know.
Vanderbilt – The Commodores smoked Nerd Forest 41-7 to gain bowl eligibility. Congrats to James Franklin and everyone who took my advice and bet Vandy -1.5. Take Money!
What They Meant To Say: Urban Meyer Edition

“Oh, I hate them. Yeah, big time. But in fairness, they hate me, too, so it goes both ways.” – Urban Meyer on his relationship with his family
