No TV Wednesday

Another long night at the office...no live games on tonight.

A few more weeks until the Sun Belt teams begin to play on Tuesday nights.  Shortly thereafter we get some Big East on Wednesdays and then, come November, the MAC makes us all that much happier when they begin playing every Tuesday night.  

Everyone loves the MAC.

On the way to game...bus catches fire and destroys all equipment

Thankfully, all of the players and the staff were able to get off without injury; but Western New Mexico's football program lost everything else in the fire.Screen_Shot_2011-09-21_at_8.51.16_AM

The team was on the chartered bus heading to Durango, CO to play Fort Lewis Friday afternoon.  A fire broke out in the cargo compartments and the bus wound up being totally engulfed in flames and burned completely.  Not a single person was injured but all of WNMU's football equipment was destroyed.  Everything.

The game went on; although they pushed kickoff back a few hours to allow time for WNMU's home jerseys, practice pants and some old helmets to be driven to the game.

Nike donated new cleats.

Guys were literally trading helmets when the offense gave way to the defense and vice versa.

Down 14-13 at halftime, we can only imagine the talk that head coach Adam Clark gave his guys, trying to get them fired up...ok, maybe that would have been a poor choice of words...for the second half.  Whatever he said, it worked as the Mustangs came out and rallied for a 26-17 victory.  

We're very glad no one was hurt.  Take a look at what was left of the bus.

Easily the best tweet of the night

Steven Sipple covers Nebraska football for HuskersExtra.com and the Lincoln Journal Star.  

Minutes ago, he offered this one up for the world to enjoy...

"Thumbing through old #Huskers football media guides, I notice in 1976 the coaches' bios included their home phone numbers. Good old days."

Great tweet; but does make us wonder why he was flipping through the 1976 media guide.  




Active FBS head coaches with 150 wins

We noticed that with their first two wins of the season, Kansas State head coach Bill Snyder has joined the list of active FBS coaches that have won 150 FBS games.  Impressive.

The complete list is as follows:

Joe Paterno with 403 wins

Mack Brown with 216 wins

Frank Beamer with 201 wins

Steve Spurrier with 189 wins

Gary Pinkel with 152 wins

Bill Snyder with 151 wins

Note this list only includes wins while at a BCS program. 




Al Golden's got a great stat for you

Al Golden spoke with reporters today about their upcoming game against Kansas State (3:30 Saturday on ESPNU).  

In his introductory remarks, Golden notes that since 1992 Kansas State is 50-5 during the month of September. We'll add to his statement, that K-State has only lost 3 times on the road (like they will be Saturday) during the month of September since 1992.  Impressive performance and scheduling.

Video to show your players...after scoring a TD, don't do this

Last night, Sam Bradford takes a quick two step drop, opens up left and throws to a back that had been split out wide.  The back drops it; but it was a backwards pass and thus a fumble.  

Giants linebacker Michael Boley scoops and scores 70 yards later...

Then he throws the ball right in the face of a Giants video intern. What?

 

 




No TV Tuesday

Good night to stay late at work.  No live games on TV tonight.

Thursday night college football returns with 3 games...




Jerry Kill: Everybody gets a game ball

After their 29-23 win over Miami (OH) on Saturday, Coach Kill went to speak with the team in the locker room.  

The team broke into a "Jerry, Jerry, Jerry..." chant.  Clearly, they wanted to win this one for their coach.  

Kill then checks with someone, who blesses his idea of "buying everyone a damn game ball" and the guys celebrate.  

A good moment for Minnesota football.
