Hello, everyone! I am cooking dinner and this is my first rodeo with ESPN3.com’s streaming video feed.
6:05 – Catamounts start inside their own 15, but pop off a 20 yard run on their first play. I think we’ve seen this movie before. Second play (QB keeper) picks up only nine!
6:10 – WCU converts on 4th and short. Just like last year, we bite on any misdirection or ball fake.
6:12 – Holy f-cking shit. That’s all I’ve got folks. It’s quite possible we suck even more on defense this year!
6:15 – In case you’re wondering (and I know you are!), tonight’s dinner menu is roasted pork tenderloin with saffron rice and baby carrots. Not too bad for a Dad on solo duty.
6:17 – Three and out. I need a shortcut key for “Holy f-cking shit.”
6:18 – But alas, the Catamounts dropped the punt. Wolfpack in field goal range. Woohoo!!!!
6:19 – First play post-turnover is a 26-yard TD pass to TJ Graham. Hopefully WCU muffs the kickoff so we don’t see more of our “defense.”
6:23 – Scoreboard gremlins. That didn’t take long.
6:27 – Things you won’t learn from listening on the radio. Western’s coach is really fat. Almost Mangino fat. Another 8 yard run up the middle. Holy f-cking shit.
6:29 – Dumb bastards tried to throw. On first and third down. Now is the time on Sphrockets when they punt. Pack ball near their own 30. Virtual TV timeout, I go to check on my rice.
6:32 – Owen Spencer makes a routine catch! Don’t see that too often.
6:34 – Dean Haynes does not look very good. Against a weak 1-AA defense.
6:35 – That fumble will be overturned after replay review. Despite what the D-list announcers say, it was not close at all.
6:41 – Another six points for TJ Graham. So, we have maybe two players that would be first team all-Southern Conference.
6:58 – Sorry for the delay (eating). TD pass #3, and the offense is now performing as expected. We just can’t run or stop the run. Like, at all.
7:00 – tvp brings up a good (and very accurate) point. Our OL is pass blocking really well, but the run blocking still sucks. Here’s hoping that when the level of competition increases, we continue to play to our strengths and pass a whole hell of a lot.
7:08 – Warrick Dunn is not good in the broadcast booth. Better than Doc Walker? Sure. But not good. Pack finally gets a good running play.
7:10 – Not sure Wilson’s been touched yet. His uniform sure isn’t dirty.
7:12 – The biggest positive so far has to be TJ Graham. He’s really playing well. First down from the 11.
7:14 – Midnight toker George Bryan gets into the scorebook. 28-7 now.
7:15 – Jacksonville State converts the 2-pointer and stuns Ole Miss in double OT. Not a good day to be Houston Nutt.
7:21 – In case you had forgotten – Russell Wilson is really good. A magician in the two minute drill, and in turning a negative play into something positive.
7:24 – Now is the time on Shprockets when we practice kicking FGs from the hash.
7:26 – Not exactly a thing of beauty, but it stayed inside the left upright. It will be 31-7 at halftime. We will see what the backup offense can do in the second half, I’m sure.
