Abbreviatedly Random and Briefly Meaningless Thoughts

1.Â Â Â If you are one that likes a lot of offense, then you got your monies worth with over 1,000 combined yards and 93 total points scored. On the other hand, if you are one that leans towards a defensive kind of game, right about now you are requesting a refund. Donâ€™t hold your breath however.
2.Â Â Â Stat of the game: Three Georgia Tech touchdowns in just four plays. Weâ€™re hoping the game plan for the defense was to tire out Techâ€™s offense. REEEEEEEEEEALY hoping. Certainly FSUâ€™s defense wasnâ€™t winded from those series.
3.Â Â Â Sitting at 2-4 on the season so far there is some good news for FSU fans.Â It is a money back guarantee (you wonâ€™t have to hold your breath for this one) that the Seminoles will not lose next Saturday. Of course they donâ€™t play but thatâ€™s beside the point. We here at Random Thoughts look for any silver lining we can find right about now.
4.Â Â Â There is a possible solution to end this three game losing streak. Florida State has not won a game since beating BYU in Utah. The obvious solution â€¦.. move Bobby Bowden Field at Doak Campbell Stadium to Utah. As I said we here at Random Thoughts look for anything.
5.Â Â Â Itâ€™s either the above mentioned solution or following that sage advice from that great philosopher John â€œBlutoâ€ Blutarsky; start drinking heavily.
6.Â Â Â Hereâ€™s something that I thought was just reserved for Duke football. Basketball season starts in six days. (Thatâ€™s one of those silver lining things by the way.)
7.Â Â Â And as Ron Cherry announced yet another holding call on Florida State (apparently the Seminolesâ€™ opponent never hold when itâ€™s a Ron Cherry crew involved) came this comment from Gene Deckerhoff. â€œLetâ€™s hear Ron Cherryâ€™s favorite call.â€
8.Â Â Â Proving once again that the announcer kiss of death is real came this comment from Deckerhoff moments before Techâ€™s first fumble. â€œThere have been no punts or turnovers so far.â€ You know, if you could only place a bet right after an announcer says one of those kinds of things you could clean up. Wouldnâ€™t have to wait for that refund or money back guarantee.
9.Â Â Â And Georgia Tech brought their punter why?
10.Â Â Â I wonder if a Nobel Prize is awarded to the team that gives up the most number of big plays in college football? If so, thereâ€™s plenty of time to get your nominations in by February 1.

11.Â Â Â If you tuned earlier in the day to catch another ACC showdown this one between Virginia Tech and Boston College, you certainly didnâ€™t have to watch very long to figure out who was going to win that game.
12.Â Â Â And on that above-mentioned game, alright, who replaced the Hokiesâ€™ offense with that juggernaut? We want that other one back!!!
13.Â Â Â As the first quarter stats appeared on the TV screen for that above-above-mentioned game showing BC with 1 yard rushing and zero yards passing came the salient observation from Mrs., BFT. â€œNo wonder they are having problems scoring.â€ That girl is a genius sometimes.
14.Â Â Â Raycom sideline reporter Mike Hogwood on Virginia Tech: â€œThey have a tremendous work ethic bringing a lunch pail to every game.â€ Appropriate considering it was a noon kickoff.
15.Â Â Â Ladies and gentleman I give you Buckeyeman. http://alt.coxnewsweb.com/cnishared/tools/shared/mediahub/02/03/55/slideshow_355032_Buckeyeman_10-16-07.JPG Words fail me.
