I’m sure its obvious by now the the replacement refs overseeing the greatest football in the land weren’t qualified to ref a bra-and-panties league. Yes, the commish of the Lingerie Football League revealed that Craig Ochoa, who had been fired from the powder-puff league, has been on the field with the pros this season. There is an irony somewhere in there.
So now, poor Mr. Ochoa now doesn’t have a job to go back to now that the drama is over.
From reffing to the LFL to belonging in the LFL, lets take a look at this week’s college football bottom seven, and the three least interesting games on this week’s lineup.
Houston and Wyoming scratched their way out of the bottom seven this week. Wyoming beat Idaho to get above the fold and Houston had their best game this year, a bye. So the Sad 7 now looks like this:
7. Colorado - You remember when you were growing up and you finally beat your dad at HORSE and you felt like you could shoot with anyone? That’s how Colorado must have felt after their one-point win over Washington State last week. Thing is your dad still sucks at basketball and Washington State still sucks at football. Not impressive enough to crawl off this list.
6. Florida Atlantic - In their only win, against Wagner, the Owls scored just 7 points. The Alabama game simply showed how out-manned they really are.
5. Eastern Michigan - The Eagles showed some fight against Michigan State this weekend, actually leading at the half. But then Spartans figured out that running Le’Veon Bell was their best weapon against a defense allowing over 300 yards per game on the ground. Game over.
4. Tulane - The Green Wave has scored just 22 points all season and in their last two games have been outscored 84-10. They rank last in rushing averaging 43 yards a game as a team, and last in scoring with just over a TD per game.
3. Idaho - The Vandals managed to lose an OT thriller in what was billed, by me, as a bottom three game last week to Wyoming. That raised their PPG from 10 to just under 17.
2. Memphis - The 2012 season just keeps getting worse for the toothless Tigers. When you lose by 22 @Duke you have issues. They still have Rice, Tulane and winless UAB on the schedule, so maybe there is a light at the end of the … sorry, couldn’t finish that without laughing.
1. Massachusetts - Wonder how they feel about the jump to FBS now? The Minutemen are in games for about that long, a minute. Average score is 43-9 in four games. These softies are snuggling up to last in almost every major category.
Three Terrible Games
3. Houston vs. Rice – Houston hasn’t won a game and Rice has beaten just Kansas, by 1. Bonus is that this isn’t a home game for either team. The neutral site gift to football fans is being played at Reliant Stadium, the home of the NFL’s Houston Texans. There’s no pros playing this Saturday though.
2. North Texas @ Florida Atlantic – Both teams’ only win was against FCS opponents, so something has to give here. This is a fight for the Sun Belt Cellar. Go get em!
1. Rhode Island @ Bowling Green – Who isn’t dying to see a winless FCS Rhode Island Rams team play a pathetic 1-3 FBS Falcon squad. If you really want, you can pay for this gem on PPV’s Game Plan package.
