Monday Morning Riddle

Happy Monday, Cougar Nation, and welcome to the rest of the Cougar football season known as
POST-MORGUE-DOM...

Have no fear, despite our malaise, we will continue to be your insightful and trustworthy tour-guides of the NEW and IMPROVED poop island.

That said, without further ado, here is today's riddle (okay, its just a stinkin' question):

What is the average amount of points scored by the Cougar offense in Pac-10 games since the start of 2006?????????????????????????????????????????????????.....


The ANSWER: (drum ROLL please):


21.36 points

Yep, you got it, 21.36 points. Don't know about you all, but that adds up to 3 touchdowns (and no, don't give Brinkhater other possible scenarios, cuz Romeen could NEVER and I mean EVER kick 7 field goals in a season, let alone a game!).

So for any of you who think that there's even a chance at respectability have got something else comin'.

Simply put, I think it would be a near miracle for this D to hold any Pac-10 Defense under 35 points. Therefore, in order for us to tie, our offense would have to score 66% higher than its average JUST TO TIE!!! And judging by Romeen's bludgeoning of the left upright on Saturday night, its not even certain that 5 touches would mean a tie!!!!!

In other words, say hello to 2-10, Butch Nation!!!!!.....(though, don't get me wrong, Brinkhater is still holding out hope that we can achieve the 4-8 milestone that was predicted on the eve of this season)...

But, seeing that statistic is something to make the Brinklovers out there really pause...Cuz from Brinkhater's point of view, there's a lot of motion in the ocean, but not a lot of clickin' in the kitchen, if you feel me....

Also, Is it too late to put Ivory Clark at Defensive End???

Have a great start to the week.

Not just Pac-10 teams either. Take into consideration OOC BCS teams.

2004 - 12 points against Colorado.
2005 - No OOC opponents, just stat-padding vs. Idaho, Nevada and Grambling (although Nevada had a bowl-winning team that year).
2006 - 14 points vs. Auburn, 17 points vs. Baylor.

I just read that the line on this weekend's game is currently ASU by 9. Can anyone recommend a good online sports book? I could use some easy money...

WHAT? Did they forget the '0' after that 9?

We're all going over Niagara in a barrel full of swords.
