Weekend Rewind: In Case You Missed It
Durant Brooks has a bad day: The rookie punter made a series of gaffes that nearly cost the Redskins their home opener against the Saints. Brooks botched a hold on a field goal, booted a line drive that allowed Reggie Bush to return it for a touchdown and shanked a punt in the fourth quarter. Meanwhile, it appears the man Brooks supposedly beat for the job, Derrick Frost, is going to ride Aaron Rodgers’ arm to a playoff bid. Ladies and gentlemen, Vinny Cerrato.
Maryland upsets California: A week after losing to Middle Tennessee, the Terps upended No. 23 California. Lots of explanations have been given for the turnaround — the early starting time for Cal, the heat, Maryland’s defense — but what about the Maryland state flag designs in the end zones? The Terps’ record with the flags? 1-0.
K-Rod sets save record: Angels closer Francisco Rodriguez broke Bobby Thigpen’s record for most saves in a season with his 58th Saturday night. With the Angels leading the AL West by 18 games through Saturday, don’t be surprised if Rodriguez winds up with the Cy Young over 20-game winner Cliff Lee.
TWT Five College Football Frauds
1. Ohio State: The 35-3 rout by Southern California should save America from having to watch the Buckeyes get embarrassed in another BCS title game.
2. Rich Rodriguez: It’s amazing how much better the spread works when you have a Heisman Trophy contender (Pat White) running it as opposed to someone who couldn’t cut it at Georgia Tech (Steven Threet).
3. The Big East: South Florida’s comeback against Kansas salvaged the conference, which has fewer ranked teams (two) than the much-maligned ACC (three).
4. Jahvid Best: The Next Reggie Bush left his Heisman chances — and his lunch — at Byrd Stadium on Saturday.
5. Al Groh: There’s a good chance Duke will be favored when his Cavaliers visit Durham on Sept. 27.
He said what?
