Running Up the Score 101

Kellen Moore - Clubhouse Leader for the Dumb Face of the Year, Eli Manning pulling a close second.

Hey, I've got a great idea! Lets play Louisiana Tech, on ESPN, on a freakin Tuesday! Did anybody else actually watch this? Didn't think so. My only rooting interest was that La Tech would show up and put some yards on these guys so we would be back in our rightful place as number one in total defense. Which I am pretty sure happened because they gave up 390 yards to them. Even though their coach is a freaking idiot and went for it on 4th and goal from the 6 in the mid 3rd quarter only being down by like 14. Ohh, and not to mention he also got flagged unsportsmanlike like conduct for continuing to berate the officials after an off sides call on an onside kick attempt. Yeah, thats smart, lets give Boise State a short field. Who is this pheonomenal Woody Hayes like character on the La Tech sideline? The one and only Sonny Dykes, son of Tech 'legend' Spike Dykes. What a legend. 82-67-1 on the plains of west Texas including a hall of fame-esk 2-5 in bowl games and zero ten win seasons. His son? On the same path to mediocrity as his father. What was I talking about? Oh yeah, I hate Boise State. Sorry, I just can't ever pass up an opportunity to bash on Tech, especially when they are down.

So back to Boise. As I am watching this disaster known as a football game, slowly falling in and out of consciousness/boredom I cant help but notice that the game is well in hand. Boise is up 42-13 with 8 minutes left. I also cant help but notice that Kellen Moore is still in the game. Then, because Chris Peterson is such a great sportsman, they call a 40 yard bomb down the middle of field on 2 and 4 from their own 15. I literally couldn't believe it. Then they off course called some stupid draw on the next play for a TD to inflate the beat down. I swear if GP did this it would be on the ESPN ticker within maybe 3 seconds.

"Scumbag coach Gary Patterson who doesn't care if his players get their head ripped off on the field (Nick Swardson's Pretend Time anybody? Post now updated with video.) decides to run up the score on an inferior less talented team in order to get 'style points' in the polls. Tom Rinaldi with more at 10."

And how do the announcers call this play? "That's a good way to keep the pressure on em", and "that why Boise State is so hard to defend, you never know what they are going to do." Just go ahead and kill me. I mean this was almost as bad as calling a flea flicker on a Wyoming that was in mourning who had to face Texas the week before. Good for your Boise, you are by far the superior team. Anyway, I figure from now on these guys are the enemy. We are about to be conference foes, and we are about to 'leapfrog' them in the polls when we take our talents to Salt Lake City.

LaTech could have made this game alot closer than the final score showed. They had more first downs, won the TOP, and gained alot of yards. But it seemed like Dykes was in desperation mode from the very beginning of the game and made some stupid calls that cost their team at having a shot in this one. Shit, they went for it on 4th 7 times! And only converted 3. F-ing meth head Boise State. i really hate them.

I was one of the other 5 people nationally that watched this one. Anyone looking only at the box score would see this as an easy win for Boise.

LA Tech could have played this game really close if they hadn't made so many stupid coaching and playing mistakes.

In this game, at least, Boise wasn't impressive, LA Tech was just assinine.

So ESPN has now shown their hand. Pumping Boise 10 times more than TCU in all of their BCS rhetoric and then repeatedly plugging the fact that they are broadcasting all of Boise's remaining regular season games. OK, I finally get it. Boise's a pretty good team, but if we beat Utah convincingly, I think we pass them in the BCS rankings.

Sportscenter did not even mention Boise gave up almost 400 yards. Instead, their "analysis" focused on how Jorts U is the "most complete team in the country."

TCU has held its last two opponents (both more respectable than La Tech) to less yards combined than Boise gave up last night. The last time the Frogs allowed over 375 yards? At OU circa 2008 (who played for the Nat'l championship and sported the Heisman Trophy winner that year).

I agree to an extent.

Boise's D played like garbage all game. But the offense (as usual) was on fire. I dont buy this whole "BSU are a bunch of assholes because they ran up the score". How about TCU putting up 21 points in the fourth quarter against Tennessee Tech? Just part of the game i think.

On a different note i hope TCU or Boise gets a shot at the BCS title. I think it would be cool to see a non-AQ school win it.

CounselorFrog said...

Check yourself there Zachary. How many times did TCU throw the ball against Tennessee Tech in the 4th quarter? ZERO, that's how many. Its not like we would have anyway, Andy Dalton wasn't in the game the entire 4th quarter. Neither was Matthew Tucker, Ed Wesley (who sat after his TD at 14:19), Jeremy Kerley, Stansl Maponga, Tank Carder, Wayne Daniels, and others.

Moore was still in, and throwing, at 8 minutes left in the 4th while being up by 29. There is a difference.

And don't use quotes around stuff I didn't say. I never said they were a bunch of ass holes for running up the score. I'm all about running up the score, I am not about when the announcers wont admit it because they have Boise's man meat down their throat.

But they are assholes for playing on a camo field.

We had like a 30 yard TD run by a white walk on fullback. I'd say we weren't trying to run up the score, they were just that bad. Boise was throwing deep balls in the 4th.
