Gridiron Gesticulations Week 4: With Apologies to FSU and Ryan Lochte

Gridiron

By John Griffin I Was Wrong Let me begin by addressing my criticism of Florida State a few weeks ago. While I never said FSU was a bad team, I felt they hadn’t earned their high pre-season ranking. They certainly proved me wrong in an exhilarating 49-37 win over Clemson, but my problem lies more with the system that anointed FSU than I do with the team itself. I consider preseason rankings to be one of the dumbest things in sports, a close 3rd behind Jerry Jones and Ryan Lochte. It’s a system based entirely on hype and speculation when no football has actually been played. The worst part? It can seriously affect how a…

Gridiron Gesticulations Week 3: USC Me Now?

Gridiron

by john griffin Hey, you know what? It’s not all doom-and-gloom for KU football. The Jayhawk defense played admirably in a 20-6 loss to TCU, forcing 4 turnovers. Though the defense gave up a lot of yardage, they made big plays when it counted. Anyway, onto the rest of the world. More than Luck-y Everyone hates Lane Kiffin, right? Let us taste his salty tears after #2 USC totally blew it against #21 Stanford, losing for the 4th year in a row (I know, right?) 21-14. Matt Barkley may have lost himself the Heisman Saturday night, going a woeful 20-41 with 2 terrible interceptions and no touchdowns. Stanford surprisingly snapped out of their streak of…

Gridiron Gesticulations Week 2: LOLs in the Polls

Gridiron

Well, KU lost. Here are my thoughts. But we can take solace in the fact that other teams lost in a myriad of more embarrassing ways. Falling from Grace Where to begin? How about Arkansas getting taken out of the Top 25 entirely by Louisiana Monroe? Razorback fans are going to make the excuse that QB Tyler Wilson left the game at halftime due to injury, but come on, shouldn’t the #8 team be able to beat the Warhawks with their 3rd string in the game? The answer is yes, Arkansas. The answer is yes. Also your defense stinks and WOO PIG SOOIE is dumb. One can only hope this begins your long slide back into…

Gridiron Gesticulations Week 1: Sloppy Starts

Gridiron

By John Griffin So, the Charlie Weis era of Jayhawk football began with a victory. What else happened around the world of college football? Well, prepare for a dollop of creamy knowledge to be dropped onto your crunchy, tortilla brain. Sloppy Top 25 Really, #4 Oklahoma? You beat UTEP 24-7? You needed a pair of 4th quarter touchdowns to put away the Miners? #9 South Carolina: You won 17-13. With 69 yards passing. Against Vanderbilt. Do I have to elaborate? Okay, I do. SC quarterback Connor Shaw had a tough performance, returning to the game after an injury sidelined him. But it’s not like he was lighting it up before he was hurt. #12 Wisconsin:…
