FriDay in Football

ESPN's College Football Kick-Off Game (or whatever) was kind of a dud. South Carolina upset NC State 7-3 as a result of the Wolfpack's piss-poor receivers and some take-out officiating (I'm guessing that would be the opposite of "home cooking"). I was able to get back from Raleigh (with a brief trip through Arby's drive through) in time to see the last three quarters of the Oregon/Boise State game, which was kind of a snoozer itself. So much so, that, with about three minutes left in the game, I decided to turn in. Which was too soon, since....

Oregon running back LeGarrette Blount sucker punched Boise State defensive end Byron Hout. By all accounts, Hout cocked off to Blount during the post-game handshake period and Blount responded with his fist. While Blount made his bed by saying the Ducks owed Boise State an "ass whooping" and then having a less than spectacular game (in the 19-8 loss), Hout looks like kind of a dickbird and there's something pretty gratifying about seeing him drop in LSUfreek's gif.

It's been a damn bloodbath for offensive coordinators in the League this week. First Chan Gailey gets the bum's rush in Kansas City, then Jeff Jagodzinski was shown the door in Tampa Bay, and now Bills offensive coordinator Turk Schonert is out on his ass. Seriously, firing your offensive coordinator a week before the season starts is the hottest NFL trend since the Wildcat formation.
