Don’t throw your career away, Brian Kelly! Plus: week 3

December 9, 2009 at 12:53 am 2 comments

I saw some stuff on the World Wide Websites today about things “heating up” between ND and Brian Kelly, so I just want to implore Coach K one more time: Don’t throw it all away like this! ND is career poison!

That being said, it’s time once again for my ongoing analysis of how Texas doesn’t deserve to play in the BCS title game and Cincinnati does. Obviously we need a playoff system for college football, but in the meantime I will vent my frustration by tearing down the Longhorns. (BTW, not many people know this but the “Longhorn” mascot originally referred to unicorns. Then UT moved from their original home, a fantasy castle in the sky, to Austin and switched to the current mascot which is a cow with long horns.)

Anyway, our game-by-game comparison of Cincinnati’s and Texas’ seasons continues with week 3:

Cincinnati 28, Oregon 18 – Before I begin my keen analysis, keep in mind this game was played AT Oregon St., making our triumph all the more… triumphant. The Beavers (see left) finished #18 in the final BCS rankings and third in the Pac-10 (their conference wins included Stanford and at Cal). They’ll face BYU in the Las Vegas Bowl, which is kind of a misnomer since the game is actually played in Wisconsin. Just kidding.

Halfway across the country…

Texas 34, Texas Tech 24 – The “Red Raiders” had a decent year and in fact won at Nebraska a month after this game was played. They finished 8-4 and will play Michigan State, which is coached by a certain former acquaintance of ours, in the Alamo Bowl. HOWEVER… Texas Tech isn’t even ranked in the BCS final top 25. Why am I citing BCS rankings to help make my point when the whole idea of this exercise is to prove these very same rankings are wrong about Cincinnati? Because I’m a complicated man and no one understands me but my lady!

Obviously the edge this week goes to our very own Cincinnati Bearcats.

Rankings: Texas *yawn* stayed at #2 in both polls while Cincinnati moved up to #14 AP/ #15 USA Today. WE’RE CLOSING IN ON YOU, TEXAS! CAN YOU FEEL THAT HOT BEARCAT BREATH ON THE BACK OF YOUR NECK?!?

    It will take more than unicorns and beavers to maintain the momentum that HCBK brought to this pride of Bearcats. Who do you see taking this team to the next level Half Shark Pallindrome?

      Thanks for the comment, Barescat. I don’t want it to seem like I’m avoiding your question, but the fact is that your premise is faulty. It certainly will not take anything more than unicorns and beavers to keep our momentum going. (Hint: You’ll see what I mean during the next full moon.)
