Hey, doesn’t anyone teach defense anymore?
The Hawgs can’t muster up any offense no matter who’s at the helm, but the Terps let Bowling Green hang 48 points on them. The once mighty Terps took it hard from Bowling Green! Edsall is staring to look like an Edsel and the only thing more porus than the Terp defense is a sieve with a hole in it.
At the high school level, no less than seven games this week saw scores of more than 40 points. Three games saw the winning team post at least 50 points and in the Q.O game – even with a running clock, the Cougars put up 61 points! Someone needs to install a turnstyle in the end zone.
This ole Altar boy wonders if high school football teams are cutting back on defensive coaches in order to buy more jerseys.
There was more slashing and gutting than at a Brave Heart/Jackie Chan double feature.
There was more blood letting than at a Red Cross event.
It was uglier than a Madonna and Justin Bieber concert.
So the big surprise this week was Fred Kim’s Seneca Valley boys.
Just remember: “They’re BACK!” Northwest found out a week late. So let’s see what’s up this week.
Georgetown Prep 18
Dan Paro’s L’il Hoyas are playing at the top of their game and in a heated rivalry with Gonzaga he’ll have a few aces worth playing. But Marty’s gonna bet his 10-gallon hat Gonzaga will have a little more gas in the tank. But this one will be worth seeing either way. No one has scored on Prep in two games and Gonzaga’s only allowed one visit in their endzone. Put the video game on hold. Don’t get much better than this.
Paint Branch 28
Paint Branch has an explosive offense, at least they have against some mediocre teams. Gaithersburg got blanked by Northwest then handled Watkins Mill rather easily.
In the best matchup of the public school games this week, this one could go down to the wire. Since we are still pretty far from the playoffs don’t look for Paint Branch to choke just yet.
Clarksburg’s loss to Sherwood had to sting. There’s no love loss between those two teams. Meanwhile B-CC is still numb all over after being pasted by Blair last week. After this week look for B-CC to be numb and comatose.
Seneca Valley 28
Fred Kim’s boys are definitely having a “Poltergeist” moment. They’re back! And they will be all over Churchill’s back. Even asbestos shoulder pads won’t keep Churchill from getting fried. Churchill will have to put the lotion back in the basket.
Paint Branch 35
Watkins Mill 10
The Swarmin’ Hornets planned on challengin’ The ‘Hawgs in a pre-season game, but rumor has it Dan Snyder was afraid his ‘Skins would get embarassed.
Last week Kevin Fowle’s Magruder team scored more points than the team scored in the last decade as the Colonels pounded on poor old Northwood – a team so thin you have to put two players together to get the thickness of single-ply toilet paper. This week Magruder has to play football – at Sherwood. ‘Nuff said.
The great teams can get caught once, but rarely get caught napping twice. This makes it will be tough for Blair, but pretty good for Vegas odds makers.
Speaking of odds – what are the odds Q.O. will find itself out of breath scoring this week? Last week Q.O. scored 61. Practice this week consisted of doing laps so the Cougars don’t pass out running it into the endzone against an injured and depleted Wootton team.
Can you believe that Richard Montgomery sits at the top of the 4A North Division? With a marshmallow cream schedule, if R.M. gets passed Rockville, then it won’t have to worry about playing football until it faces Northwest in October! Rivers are flowing backwards and the Rockets could even make the playoffs.
Northwood got spanked so bad last week they’ve changed their mascot name to the Northwood red bottoms.
Walter Johnson 3
Kennedy can’t score and can’t stop anyone else from scoring. Luckily they play W.J. – a team that can’t find the endzone with a GPS tracker.
The Chimichanga express can play defense. Blake can’t. Blake can score, but thinks defense consists of two guys in the stands holding up a big letter “D”. Someone else will have to bring the picket fence.
Einstein lost to Richard Montgomery and Churchill. There’s absolutely no reason to think the team can’t keep up the good work this week.
Winter’s Mill 6
The highlight of this weekend’s game will be the corn-on-the cob eating festival followed by the butter-churning and square dance combo at midfield.
Liberty Christian 7
Marty very much wants to believe in this Avalon team. After all they just barely made the salary cap and traded away their number one draft picks for the next three years. This week they have their last chance then the Basso Profundo will be looking to bench coach Spinner and bring back Tad “Crazy Legs” Shields.
Landon is installing a hot brie machine in its huddle to go with the Perrier dispenser.
Woodberry Forest 21
The High and Mighty already predicted this one last week. Hey, a week early, but the result will be same.
