Cowboys 21, Panthers 7: Felix Jones Is Unstoppable, Stopped

Posted by SuckaFish

Only two things can stop Felix Jones, injuries and Jason Garrett. Both did Monday night.

Jones carried the ball eight times for 94 yards, an 11.8 average. So why did he only get eight carries? He left the game in the third quarter with a left knee strain but he should have had 20-25 touches by then.

The Cowboys scored zero points in the first half. They twice had the ball at the one before settling for field goals. And still they beat the Carolina Panthers 21-7 for their first win in Cowboys Stadium.

Horned Frogs Rise to #11 AP; #10 Coaches Poll

Once again, the nation, including The New York Times is taking notice of the TCU Horned Frogs and other possible BCS busters:


….In fact, Houston, Texas Christian and Boise State are not going anywhere. For the first time in the Bowl Championship Series era, teams from outside the six so-called power conferences can be considered legitimate threats for the national title.

Men’s Basketball: Freshman Arrested

Posted by SuckaFish

Maryland freshman center Jordan Williams was one of five people arrested in his hometown of Torrington, Conn, over an alleged incident in August. Williams has been charged with breach of peace and assault.

Williams is expected to contribute to the Terps immediately. He was ranked #85 among national recruits by Rivals.com and plays a position that was a weakness for Maryland last year.

Gary Williams released a statement this afternoon:

We are aware of the situation and are monitoring any changes. We will let the judicial system run its course before making any decisions. Any discipline coming from the campus will be in accordance with our Student-Athlete Code of Conduct.

They Are Who We Thought They Were: Lions 19, Redskins 14

Lisa: Dad, do you know what schadenfreude is?
Homer: No, I do not know what schadenfreude is, please tell me because I am dying to know …
Lisa: It’s a German term for “shameful joy”, taking pleasure in the suffering of others.

That pretty much sums up my feelings today. See some of my favorite quotes/links about the game at Surrounded by ‘Skins.

Urban Meyer Hates His Players, Has No Soul

Posted by KilgoreTroutIII

Need any more reasons to not like Urban Meyer? Or obsessed football coaches in general? Meyer is straightforward in stating that his job and career are more important than the health and safety of his players and coaches.

In a New York Times article about Tim Tebow going to the hospital in an ambulance after a hard hit to the head during the game yesterday, his flulike symptoms during the week, and as many as 35 players being ill recently, here’s how concerned Meyer was. Not.

Meyer said earlier in the week there was no chance he would rest sick players.

“That’d be one of the major errors in coaching history to go do that, because you’d go lose,” he said. “No. Absolutely not. We’re going to bring everything and go as hard as we can. That gets you out of the profession, those kind of thoughts. You go as hard as you can.”
