TAH TIED FOR FIRST

Racing toward “bowl” eligibility, TAH went 5-1 over the weekend to tie Raleigh News & Observer’s J.P. Giglio in the ACC Now Pick Six. RNO Columnist Caulton Tudor was third at 4-2. Tudor erroneously picked Duke to beat State and LSU to upset Alabama. Giglio had it in hand until the night cap when he went off the reservation and picked OSU to upset Texas Tech.

TAH just missed an undefeated 6-0 start and its first trip to a bowl game in its short three year history when the Terps were manhandled by the Hokies Thursday night. Had we known that Virginia Tech’s interpretation of “questionable” on the injury report meant it was “questionable” how many passes first-string QB Sean Glennon would compete as opposed to incorrectly believing it meant it was “questionable” that he would actually be physically able to play in the game, things would have turned out differently.

But, it’s OK, daddy’s not mad. (Like hell, he’s not!) OK, maybe a little.

Frankly, we are just relieved that we didn't embarrass the legions of TAH faithful.

As The Who say “we won’t get fooled again. No, no.”

STAT OF THE WEEK: Texas Tech’s Graham Harrell was 40 for 50 for 456 yards and 6 touchdowns in the Red Raiders 56-20 win over #6 Oklahoma State. No, that is not a misprint – 40/50, 456 yard, 6 TDs.
