BOISE STATE WINS 59-0, GETS JUMPED IN AP POLL

October 4, 2010

The Boise State football team began the week as the number three team in the nation according to the Associated Press poll. Unfortunately, even after defeating New Mexico State 59-0, the Broncos have dropped to #4 in this week’s poll.

BSU was passed by Pac-10 school Oregon, who racked up an impressive 52-31 win over ninth-ranked Stanford. The Broncos drop in the poll comes one week after they were featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated.

Oregon currently has the nation’s highest scoring offense at 56 points-per-game.

The Pac-10 formally approved Blount’s reinstatement. He was eligible to return last week but Oregon coach Chip Kelly wanted the running back to return to the more fan-friendly environment of a home game.

LEGARRETTE BLOUNT

HE’S BACK…

LEGARRETTE BLOUNT

The University of Oregon announced the possible reinstatement of suspended running back LeGarrette Blount Thursday night. Blount was suspended by the Ducks after punching a Boise State player in the face following the team’s season-opening loss.

Blount recently wrote a letter to the student newspaper begging forgiveness.

LEGARRETTE BLOUNT HAS THE WORST GAME OF HIS CAREER (WHICH MAY NOW BE OVER)

The college football season opened Thursday with some fisticuffs. Oregon running back LeGarrette Blount’s nickname needs to be changed from “Blount Force Trauma” to “Minus Five.”

Blount was horrid both on and off the field and a big reason that the Ducks lost to Boise State University 19-8 to open the 2009 college football season. Blount ran for a total of minus five yards for the entire game. Worse, he then sucker punched Boise State player Byron Hout after the game, swung at a teammate and challenged a group of Boise fans to a fight.

On the field, Boise State dominated the game from the opening snap. Oregon didn’t even pick up a first down until midway through the third quarter. The Ducks had a total of 14 yards in the entire first half. So much for the coaching debut of “offensive genius” Chip Kelly as Oregon coach. BSU was the more athletic, smarter and better coached team. Quarterback Kellen Moore was an efficient 19/29 and, other than dropping a couple of balls, did a good job of managing Boise State to its 50th straight win at home.

Boise State is currently ranked 14th in the nation. That’s the highest preseason ranking ever of a non-BCS team. Oregon came into the game ranked 16th in the country. There was obvious bad blood between the schools from last year’s matchup. Blount had promised “an asswhooping” of the Broncos all week. Things were chippy from the start with the two teams literally getting into confrontations from the pregame warmups until after the game.

 Blount completely embarrassed himself in one of the worst performances by a running back in college football history. He had eight carries for negative five yards. That’s an average of -0.6 yards every time he touched the ball.

OREGON RUNNING BACK LEGARRETTE BLOUNT PUNCHES BOISE STATE UNIVERSITY LINEBACKER BYRON HOUT IN THE FACE FOLLOWING THURSDAY NIGHT’S GAME

Obviously frustrated, Blount went nuts following the game, sucker punching BSU linebacker Byron Hout, swinging at a teammate and charging the stands. A pile of about a half dozen people including lineman and police had to escort Blount from the field. ESPN radio was even talking about “criminal charges” against Blount and suggested “kicking him off the team.” Former Notre Dame coach Bob Davie, who called the game on television for ESPN, said Blount needed to be “suspended immediately” from the team.

Even the Oregon media was beating Blount up. Portland Oregonian columnist John Canzano wrote a story headlined, “LeGarrette Blount Must Go” calling for the senior running back be kicked off the team.

Blount’s postgame escapades were so embarrassing he may very well be gone. He had actually been suspended by Oregon athletic director Mike Bellotti earlier this year for “failure to fulfill team obligations.” Blount didn’t exactly cover himself or his university in glory Thursday. His sucker-punching of Hout was the lead story on Thursday night’s ESPN Sportscenter. The only reason Blount wouldn’t be suspended would be beacause of his talent. He was a 1,000 yard runner last season and set a school record with 17 rushing touchdowns. Thursday, Blount scored more points for Boise State than the Ducks, getting trapped in the endzone for a safety.

Oregon’s performance was such a disgrace that CBS Sports writer Ray Ratto has a column already questioning whether Chip Kelly should get fired. On September freakin’ 3rd. Meanwhile, the New York Times called it “A violent end to an ugly night for Oregon.”

Thursday’s win keeps Boise State in BCS contention for a major bowl game and also gave the school some valuable national exposure. Exposure LeGarrette Blount probably wishes he hadn’t received.

Based on previous actions by the Boise police, Blount is lucky he literally didn’t have a taser stuck up his ass. It’s not like they haven’t done it before.

UNIVERSITY OF OREGON ULTIMATE FRISBEE TEAM DISBANDED FOR GOING PANTSLESS AGAINST BEAVERS

Eugene, Oregon is still a hippie town.

One of the top campus organizations at the University of Oregon is the ultimate frisbee team. Now the student government at the school has disbanded the team for the rest of the season. The reason? It seems five members of the ultimate frisbee team competed against Oregon State at the sectional playoffs wearing no pants or underwear.

 Oregon had been the # 3 ranked ultimate frisbee team in the nation. A club spokesman called the decision to disband the team “pretty heavy.”

Bummer, dude! Another one of the team’s players claims the disbanding of the team was too harsh of a penalty since the players who were pantless wore “pretty long” shirts. Shockingly, the team had misbeheaved before. They were caught consuming alcohol and playing loud music at a club party.
