It took the University of Maryland more time than it took Ford to realize they had a bomb and that the Edsall was an “Edsel”. This buckin’ bronco can’t say goodbye to the Terps former head coach fast enough.
Mighty Marty predicted it last week, so you know it had to be true.
The players grumbled, the morale was low and the win/loss total made the Terps look lower than Einstein or Kennedy.
Meanwhile Marty is smokin’ his favorite stogie and contemplating the ‘Skins and their impressive moves in the NFC.
Yep, they lost last week Hawg fans, but there’s something promising about this year’s team even in defeat.
Captain Kirk Cousins engineered a second-straight come-from-behind drive this week to put us into position to win in overtime against an undefeated football team.
Even the immortal Aaron Rodgers – who got intercepted not once but twice in Lambeau Field lasst week – couldn’t drive a team down the field any quicker than Captain Kirk did in the last 30 seconds of regulation.
Then the receiver fell down – which led to our defeat. So button it up. This Redskins team is the best in recent years. Bank on it. So let it be said. So let it be done.
Meanwhile Marty went 14-3 last week and is a very respectable 81-21 with a .794 win percentage for the season. And in this week’s rabbit hat:
Quince Orchard 21
This is Marty’s game of the week. He’ll be in the pressbox and on the sidelines watching this North County rivalry with his spurs on.
Northwest desperately needs this game to keep its playoff hopes alive – trailing R.M. in its 4A North division by a game.
Q.O. is cruising through this division and gets the defending state champs at home! The table is set and the drama will unfold. This one could go either way, but Marty thinks with Northwest’s back against the wall Principal Lance Dempsey’s cheering will make the difference.
Riverdale Baptist 38
With next year’s draft on the line, Tyree Spinner will be bringing his version of the disciplined, conservative Avalon Black Knights to play a spirited Riverdale Baptist Squad.
This will be the county’s second best game this week in the renewal of a spirited conservative Christian rivalry that will include self-flagellation at half time.
The pickup truck crowd loaded with Jimmie cones meets the boat shoe crowd. Someone’s getting mud on their topsiders.
Watkins Mill 35
Last week Seneca Valley smacked Watkins Mill into next week, which puts them in perfect place this week to beat Rockville – a team that’s been beaten so badly they’ve changed their mascot to a ping pong ball.
Rumor has it R.M. almost refused to travel after they found out Poolesville’s field didn’t have “Natural plastic” grass.
Spotted in the stands at the last Blake game – scouts for the NFL – looking for ball boys.
Spotted in the stands at the last Magruder game – NFL ball boys looking for scouts.
The love affair continues this week.
No truth to the rumor Churchill wants to eliminate the first three downs and go straight to punting.
The battle of the winless. Well someone will almost certainly have to win this week. Give it to Makosy over Owens.
Both teams will simply bench their defenses and let the offenses play unfettered. Sherwood wins the tracks meet.
Larry Hurd, rumored to be up for the Chip Kelly job will turn it down for the Maryland job after Kelly turns it down to join his mentor in NASCAR.
Walter Johnson 21
Psychiatrists will be taping this week’s W.J. and Northwood game and will provide copies of the recording to insomniacs worldwide.
Profits will be used to get a higher round in next year’s draft.
Paint Branch 35
Paint Branch is a scoring machine and Springbrook is a score-allowing machine. NBC plans a new sitcom based on this very premise next week.
Seneca Valley 50
The state may have to change the running-clock slaughter rule for this week’s game when Seneca Valley will score seven touchdowns on its first possession.
Wootton’s tissue thin team meats a Frederick County team which needs to blow its nose.
G. Prep 17
St. Albans 7
The Pope has $20 on Prep. But he’s not betting the over/under.
The mighty have fallen – but they won’t give it up to “Catholic Light”.
St. Stephens/Agnes 7
Ben Carson is rumored to be attending this game – to protest the obvious gender confusion at St. Stephens/St. Agnes.
Good Counsel 28
Bishop McNamara 14
The archbishop Milloy will checkmake Bishop Mcnamara.
