Tuesday Random Thoughts

Post by William

A few quick thoughts this morning....

#1 Boise State #3? What a joke. At least 8 SEC teams would be favored in 11 of Boise's 12 scheduled games. Probably 10 teams. Boise is 6-7 in their last 13 games against BCS teams and 2-4 in their last 6 bowl games. Who cares if they beat Oklahoma 4 years ago on 2 trick plays? They're gonna realize the Tuesday morning after Labor day what big boy football is after they play VaTech at FedEx field. Remember their little voyage to Athens a few years back?

#2 We're getting close to game week. They're will be a different feeling first thing Monday morning. Go ahead and get all your business taken care off early!

#3 Could this be Spurrier's last year? He's talking about starting a true freshman QB. He suspended his stud TE yesterday. Will his ego let him quit and go play Augusta National?

#4 Watched the NFL exhibition on ESPN last night. NEVER thought I'd say this but... I love Jon Gruden as an analyst. I hated him as Tampa's coach. The guy loves football and is actually pretty funny.

#5 Frank Wren deserves MLB Executive of the year. Everything he has touched this year has turned to gold. (I know. McLouth and Kawakami. Those were last year.) 2 12/ games up with 37 to go.

Please don't forget to send us in your favorite tailgate or grilling recipes.

Have a great week.


  1. Tomato Bacon Cups

    In a bowl combine:

    1 medium diced tomato
    2 diced roasted red peppers
    1 cup shredded swiss cheese
    1/2 cup diced onion
    8 strips crumbled bacon
    4-5 chopped basil leaves

    You will need one can of biscuits. (The flaky kind that pull apart easily.) Divide each biscuit into 3 thin slices. Push biscuit slices into a mini muffin tin.

    Fill cups with vegetable & cheese mixture.

    Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes until slightly browned and bubbly.


  2. This is related to the recipe above. Add 1/2 cup mayonnaise to the vegetable mixture. Sorry for the omission!

  3. That sounds pretty dang good.

    Only 10 more days!

  4. Boise State is a joke. Wouldn't last a minute in the SEC. GO DAWGS!
