COM: Blogarithmic #229

When i said after last weekend's upsets that LSU was suddenly back in the BCS picture, it was more facetious than anything. Little did i know . . .

In fact, i started rooting for West Virginia. Little did i know . . .

So, i guess i'm back to Go Tigers . . .

In the high school world, among the teams i follow, most survived the third round of the playoffs. The one i went to see didn't, but put up a good fight against an obviously overhelming squad. I took in the Copperas Cove-McKinney Boyd game in Waco Friday night -- Boyd is home turf for my niece and nephew, both members of the band (see elsehwere below).

Anyway Cove won out 48-26, but only after a scare just before haltime that narrowed the gap to 14-13, and a couple of strong pushes in the second half, before pulling away. Most of their game was built on a bruising tailback -- one of htose kids that once you've seen him you know you'll be seeing him for a long time. Troy Vital set a school record in the game in galloping 329 yards on 20 carries, including TD runs of 57, 18, 69 and 26 yards. He is a bull.

Harper, surpsied themselves to be in the playoffs, gets more impressive every game, smacking Sabinal 32-0. They'll face Bremond this weekend in Pflugerville.

Highland Park held up their traditional playoff ways with a 36-13 win over South Oak Cliff to keep them undefeated. They move on to a date with West Mesquite at Texas Stadium on Friday.

Smithson Valley also had a score indicative of their power with a 55-7 win over Harlingen South in Corpus. They play at noon Saturday in the Alamodome against Madison, a district foe.

The Ags dropped their first basketball game of the season, to Arizona 78-67. Will be interesting to see how that affects the poll standings and what it does for the next few games. . .
