Season 3, Game 8:vs Louisiana State

Louisiana State University Tigers (4-3, #35) at Milwaukee College Penguins (5-2, #45)

Way back when I was recruiting for the first Milwaukee College Penguins football team (2004 edition), I confided in then sophomore half back Wetzel (HB #47) that he would be vying for the Heisman trophy come his senior year. Well, his senior year has arrived and the Heisman trophy committee has yet to knock on our door. Wetzel and I haven't discussed that earlier conversation as much.

"What happens to a dream deferred?"

Among the choices that Langston Hughes did not list is this: He hands it off to the next guy. In this case, the next guy is junior fullback B Foldy (FB #29). He's more of a blocking fullback but today, Foldy got payback. Against the Tigers, he scored a Penguin record FIVE touchdowns, four on the ground and 1 through the air. He didn't rip up the field - he only had 53 yards rushing on 14 attempts - but he got it where it counts. And I got the blow out I had been passive-aggressively asking for.

But not without a price. Starting cornerback and ex-girlfriend Bennett (CB #10) - and yes, the two are related - came out of the game in the fourth quarter with a pinched nerve. The doctors think she'll be out three or four games. I only carry four cornerbacks! I'll have to do some shuffling if I want to bring in our dime coverage.
