it's never over

"Next Man Up" is a handy slogan to have these days. It appears the next Next Man Up is going to be Raynard Horne or Curt Orshoski, as Rashawn Jackson has managed to get himself arrested for grand larceny. Sheesh. No truth to the rumors that we chose the colors blue and orange to match the police uniform and prison jumpsuit. You gotta hand it to the 2005 recruiting class. Between Will Barker's beer, Rashawn Jackson's XBox, and Mike Brown's car stereo, they've managed to steal enough shit for a pretty good party.

The 2009 schedule is falling into place; TCU will be one of the visitors to Charlottesville next year. We also have W&M coming by for a visit, and a trip to Hattiesburg for Southern Miss. That leaves one slot, which may well be filled by one of the four MAC games we're owed from that trip to MTSU last year.

The soccer team beat American 4-2, but the bigger news to take from this article is that Tony Tchani's knee is going to need surgery. Ugh. This brings to three the total of torn knee ligaments between Tchani and Chris Agorsor.

Here is a little bit of fluff worth reading; it's about Oscar Smith, which you'll recognize as the Chesapeake powerhouse that's sending us two of their standout players in the 2009 recruiting class.

The Blogpoll breakdown is up over at CBS Sports, and your humble blogger is an award winner this week! These awards, actually, are rather dubious in nature and meant to nudge voters toward the general mean. Mr. Stubborn is "awarded" to this blog for having the least change in the ballot from last week to this; a huge factor in this is that a lot of teams I thought sucked and were unworthy of ranking did in fact suck. Most blogs sent Pitt crashing out of their ballot for losing to Rutgers, and I never had Pitt to begin with.

Finally, check back later tonight. I have something in the works that I'm pretty excited about.
