Token Hot Fans of the Week
Sometimes, the picture (right) just speaks for itself.
Bad Coach of the Week
Greg Davis, Texas offensive coordinator: I don't claim to be an expert on the nuances of football, but I had to wonder this: After the Longhorns ran the ball seven times in the first quarter for 91 total yards, and passed seven times for three receptions and 19 total yards, wouldn't you continue to run? Apparently not. At least we're not alone in our wonderment. Several frustrated Longhorns hasd the same thought last year and started an online petition to get Davis fired.
Immature -- but Funny -- Move of the Week
Arizona players stomping on LSU's midfield logo while taunting Tigers fans. First off, Arizona football players aren't good enough to stomp on anyone's logo (unless it contains the words "high school"). Second, the Tigers won, 45-3. I mean, how can you respond better than that?
Steve Spurrier Quote of the Week
"That's how dumb-ass we are right there. The quarterback didn't know (the center) was snapping the ball. We had our chances. We're just stupid right now. And us coaches, we're stupid."
Random Fact of the Week
Ohio State may have found AJ Hawk's replacement not only on the field, but off. Linebacker James Laurinaitis, who made 10 solo tackles, forced a fumble, and picked off a pass against Texas, is the son of Road Warrior Animal, part of the legendary Legion of Doom (from the WWF glory days). His Uncle John is WWE booking agent Johnny Ace, who determines the winner and loser of the matches.
Random Player of the Week
AJ Trapasso: The Ohio State punter boomed six for an average of 50.8 yards and seemed to bury Texas in their own end every time he stepped on the field.
Headline of the Week
"Auburn Turns Attention To Bayou Trash"
