Season 3, Game 4:at Buffalo

Milwaukee College Penguins (1-1, #62) @ Buffalo Bulls (1-2, #82)

I read this to my players before the game against Buffalo. It's written by Nobel Award winning author, Harold Pinter, and it is titled "American Football."

American Football

It works.
We blew the shit out of them.

We blew the shit right back up their own ass
And out their fucking ears.

It works.
We blew the shit out of them.
They suffocated in their own shit!

Praise the Lord for all good things.

We blew them into fucking shit.
They are eating it.

Praise the Lord for all good things.

We blew their balls into shards of dust,
Into shards of fucking dust.

We did it.

Now I want you to come over here and kiss me on the mouth.


Luckily, nobody took me up on the offer - and hopefully nobody will sue me for sexual harassment. Everybody knew I was reciting a poem.

Smash mouth football. That's what we had to do in order to win today's game. We entered the fourth quarter down 24 to the Bulls' 27. I couldn't believe it, actually. Near the beginning of the last quarter, Root (QB #5), still filling in for injured Koch (QB #22), tosses her second touchdown pass of the day, a short cross pattern to Sieczek (TE #86) to take the lead. Then our defense took over, giving us two three-and-outs while I called running play after running play. Wetzel (HB #47) and B Foldy (FB #29) combine for over 150 yards on the ground, and over 20 minutes of the game clock.

NOTES: Next up, our seasonal meeting against Notre Dame. Koch should be healthy enough to start ... but will I want to? Root has gone 2-1 in the last three games. It is her senior year, after all.
