The Big Game Report Card

Quarterback: D. Typical Nate. Strong promising start, even a deep ball or two. He even had a great play-action throw to Jordan. But his second half was hideous, 9-30 with two picks, and he looked more and more gimpy as the weeks went on. There was an inordinate amount of pressure put on him too; […]

[youtube Fj_K-0ucHYA]   This is how I feel.   [youtube LpZBEiWj-i8] And this.   [youtube mZJOPwDzG4o]   And this.   [youtube 5QAn6nfQN8Q] I’ll be back when I stop hating myself.

Big Game Open Thread

[youtube d-oETUYYhhs] I will pass on liveblogging, instead doing something normal and watching the game with friends. I believe this is a much healthier and happier way to enjoy football, don’t you? Starting NEXT YEAR, I will attend every Big Game I possibly can. And this time I mean it. For now, just like every […]

My Big Game Prediction

My last post was a bit of a downer–let’s return to irreverence. Here’s what this game will look like (and I’m not just talking about the slapfests between bourgeois Desi fans in the stadium): [youtube NZZ4pw2gTRI] Now imagine this running on repeat for three hours and you’re set. Of course, Cal will be the angry, […]

Cal Fans Around the World, Get Your Signs Ready

Eh, fuck it. I’m embracing this rivalry, right now. The pathetic Redfurds over on the other side of the Bay have resorted to the most bizarre tactic to motivate their Cardinal: elitist internationalism. Ooh, look, you’re in Paris! It’s appropriate, since your records in battle are eerily similar. In other words, Stanford fans go to […]

The Very Small Game (Cal-Stanford Soliloquy)

Look, I know what week it is. I know who we’re playing. I know it’s a big deal to every big Cal fan out there, especially those who were graced with the awesomeness of Holmoe. Retain the Axe and all that. Good good good. I couldn’t care less. That isn’t because I’m done following the […]

This is NOT Better Than The Play…

[youtube uBcKt0ZomNE] Let’s get that straight. And at least Stanford attempted to tackle. And they at least kept on sweeping forward right rather than going back, up, down and about. And despite the similarity of the playcalls, Starkey’s joy was not of the “break out the Oreos baby” ilk. Still, great play. Not the greatest […]

Oh, THIS is why USC Lost

[youtube J3ZM9vztKNw] Good Lord. It’s one level of douchery to steal OUR PLAY, dress up in bermuda shorts and generic blacks (are those manipulated Steelers unis?) and re-enact it to mock the losers of said play. It’s another complete level of douchery for the University of Hollywood, of pageantry and spectacle and Song Girls, to […]

The Action Jackson Diaries–Primetime Games

–Before the LSU-Florida feast, I am watching Virginia Tech-Clemson. It is an abortion of football. How Clemson got ranked is beyond me. –Versus is crapping out AGAIN. So I have no idea what’s going on with Stanford-USC (pretty much back to following gamecast), except that the Cardinal is hanging around before finally running out of […]
