Weekend Warm-Up: November 8, 2013 Edition

Who would have predicted the wild outcomes of Thursday Night College Football with the Oregon Ducks' roasting by Stanford and the Baylor Bears' mauling of the Oklahoma Sooners? No more BCS dreams for you, Ducks, unless a great deal of upsets and hocus pocus occurs to put them anywhere near the running.  That won't happen.

The Vikings beat the Redskins? They certainly did.  NFC East fans of a certain Texas team are rejoicing over their coffee mugs and celebrating the further erosion of a team that played with some real courage and stamina last year.

Plano East takes on Plano West tonight at Kimbrough Stadium.  Here is hoping that another post-game brawl doesn't break out at the Whataburger like last week.  The Centennial Titans host the Heritage Coyotes at Toyota Stadium (formerly FC Dallas Stadium).  It's Friday Night and time for some football in the Lone Star State.

I agree that Atlanta Hawks guard Dennis Schroder should have been banned at least one game for taking a cheap shot at Sacramento Kings' center DeMarcus Cousins.  Low blows are so unnecessary.  Get through the screen the right way.

Lakers edge the Rockets in Houston.  Hmm.  Clippers couldn't contain Dwyane Wade.  How will the Mavericks fare in Miami in one week? If LeBron James' back is better, and the other two "big three" players are on, then Mavs will probably have a tough time on the road. 

Lady Grid out.
