Wrap It In A Blanket

By Brad Hubbard | @bradhubbard

While the weekend brought us some interesting and exciting moments but none may have been as good as the Tennessee mascot, Smokey, wrapped in an orange blanket on the sidelines of their win against Kentucky.

Smokey in a Blankett

Yes, Florida State found a way to win, again! Yes, Melvin Gordon of Wisconsin ran for an NCAA record 408 yards on the ground against Nebraska. Yes, the Green Bay Packers scored 50 plus points for the second straight week.

But let’s be honest, nothing beats a hound dog wrapped in a blanket on the sidelines…and the photoshop madness that followed.

You’re welcome America.

The Sunday: Jump, Flip & Drop The Football Into Playoff Contention

By Brad Hubbard | @bradhubbard

The race for the  four slots in the College Football Playoff is more cutthroat than the mid term elections. While we won’t know who the final four teams are for several more weeks we do know that players on the field are doing all they can to get in.

The Flip

TCU played Kansas State in the only top 10 match-up of the day. TCU QB Trevone Boykin didn’t only lead the Horned Frogs to a beat down of the Wildcats but he may have stolen the night by flipping into the end zone.

Like Steamin Willie Beaman

The Jumps

While Boykin may have stolen the show with his flip for a touchdown. Oklahoma QB, and future Katy Perry boyfriend, Trevor Knight leaped over a Baylor defender.

 

 

Meanwhile in West Lafayette, Wisconsin RB Melvin Gordon upped the ante by hurdling a Purdue defender on this way to a touchdown.

 

Dropping The Football Is Not Like Dropping The Mic

Then we have Utah WR Kaelin Clay. He was able to turn a 78 yard TD into a 99 yard TD for Oregon. It even left ESPN announcers Brad Nessler and Todd Blackledge in shock.

 

 

With a few more weeks left before the four teams for the Playoff are announced. We should see more flips, jumps, and dropped footballs.
