So, to the Seattle Times, the Montlake Tyee goonsquad, and "Roy" who posted earlier, I say "act like you've frickin won a game before" before you bring that weak ass smack to this blog...
Don't get me wrong, beating UCLA was great for the pups. But, lets keep it in perspective: this was a UCLA team that should have been up 28-0 before the Tyee faithful finished docking their sailboats in that tasty Lake Washington millfoil. This was also a team that lost.........umm.....hmmmm...who did they lose?.......did they lose anyone????
Oh yeah, they only lost their QB, their all-world RB Drew, and the Mercedes of Tight Ends (oh, he was an All-American, wasn't he?)
And another thing: was UCLA a top 25 team? Oh....they weren't.....
So, spare us the rant Dawg fans, you've done nothing so far and are STILL NOTHING despite a having a program that happened to have a GREAT run in the late 70's and early 80's before falling flat in the last half of that decade...Oh, and you had a great run there in the 90's, if it wasn't for a minor technicality:
YOU CHEATED TO GET THERE!
Oh yeah, then you had good season in the start of this decade if it wasn't for another, small technicality:
YOU CHEATED AGAIN!!!!!
So, in the meantime, Probation Nation, enjoy the rest of your soon-to-be losing season.
In terms of the Cougs, well Brinkhater was 1/2 right in my assessment yesterday:
WE ARE AS GOOD AS NAVY!!!!!!
What I missed was:
WE ARE ALSO AS GOOD AS ARMY!
Nothing quite like seeing that vaunted Baylor D hold Army to 27 en route to a 27-20 loss.
Wow does that 17-15 win look good now, or what?
In any case, one thing that all Cougar fans can now revel in:
Determining how good we are through the laws of transitivity is now over for this season (for you Huskies out there, that means that if a>b and b>c, then assuming that both are postive integers.........)
In other words, the "lets find out how good we are by weighing how who we played faired against other known/common opponents....) is OVER!!! And thank god, cuz judging by what has happened so far, we just don't look very good....And yes, anony-mouse I do blame Brink.
I pick up the paper this morning in Sacatomatoes and read about how Sac State's coach thinks that Josh Swogger is an NFL QB. I hear him on the radio and hear about how he has the biggest arm and best accuracy of any QB his teams have played against.
Ask yourself Brink lovers, when you have heard ONE FRICKING COACH outside of Pullman say anything about Brink that way? My guess: You never will.
But, mark my words, NO ONE in America wants to be more wrong than a guy named Brinkater. With that in mind, I doth profess to you all:
I AM WAITING FOR MR. ALEX BRINK TO SHUT ME UP AND STICK THE GAME BALL UP MY INCREASINGLY LARGE ARSE!
Hopefully, we will rise this weekend, and Mr. Alex will shut me up for the first time in TWO YEARS.
So, to all you Brink lovers and Husky fans out there, I give you this week's version of Brinkhater Trivia:
What teams has Alex Brink beat in college that went on to have winning records:
2004 UCLA 6-5
2005 Nevada (who cares that they had a winning record!)
So, I am sorry when a "B" performance against a soon-to-be 0-12 team (and yes, they will be 0-12) doesn't get me excited.
That all said, beating USC this weekend will give me the TASTIEST crow dinner that money can buy.
And it goes without saying, I can't wait for that black-bird-pie!
And in case you're wondering: yes, I've been there before.
