Fresno State Boise State Final Score

It was a fun game to watch, but it showed how poor the defenses for both these teams are.  The final score was Boise State 51 Fresno State 34.  Just a few stats: there were 987 total yards gained in this game and Fresno State was 3-5 on 4th down conversions.  Fresno went for it on 4th down on 5 different occasions.  That is not good defense.

Mark Sanchez Rookie Of The Week In NFL

Former Trojan quarterback, and current Jets QB, Mark Sanchez has nominated for NFL Rookie of the Week.  Go here to vote and check back Friday afternoon to see who wins.

Sanchez’s stats:

Sanchez recorded the third most passing yards for a rookie in Week 1 in NFL history, completing 18 of 31 passes for 272 yards, one touchdown, one interception and a passer rating of 84.3 in the Jets’ 24-7 win over the Houston Texans. Sanchez led a Jets offense that gained a total of 462 yards and controlled the ball for nearly 39 minutes.

So much for Coach Carroll not being happy about Sanchez leaving, it did leave the job open for Matt Barkley.

Oregon Ducks 2009 Football Uniforms

The Oregon Ducks, with help from Nike, have done it again, they have come up with new uniforms for the 2009 football season that are even uglier than last season.  And that is saying something, considering the previous uniforms were the worst in all of sports.  Not only are the unis repugnant, they are also versatile with 80 different combinations.  Eighty combinations?  How may games do they plan on playing this season?  Put down the hippy lettuce Oregon and just play football.
