Of course, to get the full effect of the day, you’ll need to use the Pirate Translator for this webpage. Avast!
Speaking of Pirates, in the first half East Carolina looked to be adding their name to the list of teams to beat Virginia Tech. Hey, Broncos- that “big win against Virginia Tech” sure is helping your national championship hopes, isn’t it? Well, there’s always that game against powerhouse Oregon State coming up.
Since we’re talking about “out of conference games”- We suspected that UConn had lost quite a bit of their fastball from last year (their DB coach is now in Georgia), and had those suspicions reinforced in Ann Arbor a couple of weeks ago. The game this Saturday against the Cosby Chaneys of Temple proved it… you can stop calling the Huskies a “Big East Contender”, unless it’s immediately followed by derisive snickering.
A quick follow up on yesterday’s post, where we suggested that our favorite Wolverine might be leaving the program in the next few months. Again, just speculation based on teammate’s perceptions and family history.
Knowing the sting of grade related attrition, we certainly wish Mr. Shaw the best of luck with his academic endeavors; should he not be a part of The Game this year, our minds will linger instead on his last visit.
