why I will always be an amateur

I have an occasional (very occasional) good turn of phrase. However, at the risk of one of the main Directives of college football blogging – Thou shalt not cast praise upon ESPN and their many vassals – there’s no chance that I would produce this gently dismissive review of the USC – Arkansas game from the Forde Yard Dash:

USC-Arkansas (29). Indulge The Dash and remind it which team was opening on the road after replacing 11 NFL draft picks, and which team was opening up at home with 19 returning starters. By the time this 50-14 face job was over, Pete Carroll was whistling zip-a-dee-doo-dah and Houston Nutt was hoping that a true freshman quarterback can save his job.

Splendid.
