Way to go, Skiff

In its continued dominance of the "worst newspaper in the history of society" category, the TCU Daily Skiff has once again outdone itself.

It's like the editor said, "Ok, here, we have a decent story idea. Let's see what the students think of the TCU QB situation... then let's completely fuck it up by asking band kids and theatre majors what they think!"

They have in depth analysis from one brilliant football mind who raves about the dual QB systems of West Virginia and Texas... yes... right. This kid is a SENIOR. Come on, I don't care what you think about football, if you're going to contribute to an article ABOUT football, shouldn't you possess even the measliest working understanding of the game?

Continuing, a freshman MALE nursing major thinks that they should just simply play whoever is better that day. So, Mr. Bedpan jockey, as a nurse, your job is to take care of people while uplifting their spirits as well, correct? Well, switching back and forth between players based on their day at the office is really good for the ole self esteem, isn't it?

The only coherent thought is the last one which states that we should pick a QB and stick with them for a reasonable amount of time (yes, this is how you coach. Let the kid build his confidence without always worrying about losing his job) but, it's so buried underneath the rest of the drivel it doesn't really matter by the time/if you get there.

Skiff, stick to what you're good at: copying the crossword from the Dallas Morning News.

Joke of the Day

A mother and her son were flying Southwest Airlines from Corpus Christi to Amarillo.

The son (who had been looking out the window) turned to his mother and asked,

"If big dogs have baby dogs and big cats have baby cats, why don't big planes have baby planes? "The mother (who couldn't think of an
answer) told her son to ask the stewardess.

So the boy asked the stewardess, "If big dogs have baby dogs and big cats have baby cats, why don't big planes have baby planes?" The
stewardess responded, "Did your mother tell you to ask me?". The boy said, "yes she did".

"Well, then, tell your mother that there are no baby planes because Southwest always pulls out on time. Have your mother explain that
to you."


Also check out some solid ND bashing, and a shout out to TCU at the end.

Ball in Balls

Game Plan?

Dalton to start

Which quarterback plays the most will be decided "as the game plan comes together," and by "what we feel like bothers Colorado State," Patterson said.

So does this just confirm that we don't have an offensive game plan, but rather just wait to see what happens?

That Boy Ain't Right
