Next hard advance: Saturday @ 7 PM EST
The CPU gave SHSU a big F-U and decide a conference title and maybe a bowl are not in their relm of possibility. After a close loss to a much better Louisiana Tech team, the Bearkats were manhandled by what should have been an equally un-talented Idaho team. Conveniently, Sam Houston's top player, Richard Sincere, was already injured and near-1,000 yard halfback Tim Flanders was knocked out in the first quarter. Quarterback Brian Bell also missed time. Apparently, coach Majesty has done some misdeeds in his football life and the football Gods are making his team pay in big ways.
UNLV plays nice for Utah State and lets us end the season on a positive note. It was a 41-24 kind of game that would have been worse if I wasn't sloppy and in a hurry. Anyway, I'm out the do' right now to return on Monday night. I ain't got no bowl, I ain't got no title, ain't got no extra practicing. Ain't got no reaason stopping me from getting high....
