First off, in the future, if my poor copy/paste skills lead to me referring to a fictional day of the week (Wesnesday)for 3 weeks straight, please give me a heads up. Second, part of team RFH will be venturing into the belly of the beast in Blacksburg tomorrow so there will be a maximum of 1 more post from now until Saturday at the earliest. Now, to the business at hand:
1) The Rutgers Scarlet Knight: This one was open to fan vote and the Knight got alomost 50% of the vote, beating out Ray Rice and the holder who threw a TD pass last week against USF. Rutgers beat the Bulls and enabled BC to move into BCS position for tomorrow night's game against Virginia Tech. Now, with a win, BC, and by extension Matty Heisman, have the college football stage all to themselves for few days. The Clydesdale was lonely so the knight brought his horse along too.
2) Chris Fowler of College GameDay: After Erin Andrews held an interview with David Wright in which he said that there is no way that BC wins at Lane Stadium (side note: you would be hard pressed to find a bigger David Wright fan than us but for the next 24-48 hours, he's dead to us), Fowler said that "if there's one QB that can do it, it's Matt Ryan." This may sound like a run-of-the-mill quote but it was pretty important. BC was getting hit hard by Wright and Craig "Pin the tail on the AP ballot" James. Doug Flutie didn't want to sound like an outright homer so he stayed silent. Fowler got the last word and earned his 'Wagoneer's license. CF has also said that if BC wins tomorrow, they will soar up his AP ballot. We have a feeling that he represents the country as a whole.
Finally, Mel Kiper has been gushing over #12 lately and is very close to being named Conductor of the Ryan For Heisman Bandwagon.
