Monday Morning Quarterback for October 21

Here are a few things that happened over the past weekend…..

Bell County gets a major win over Corbin.

This goes without saying, but this year’s Bell County’s football team has had a rough go of it.  Going into last Friday’s game with Corbin, Bell was in danger of having to start the first round of the playoffs on the road if they lost to Corbin.  Bell hasn’t played a first round playoff game on the road since playing at Rockcastle County in 2006.  Many people, including myself, had Corbin winning this game.  Corbin was coming into the game with just 1 loss (a close 7 point loss at Wayne County).

It is tough to beat Bell County at Log Mountain.  Bell County showed everyone why it is so tough.  Scoreless into the last seconds of the game, Bell scored on a 1 yard touchdown run with 16 seconds left to secure a 7-0 hard fought win over Corbin, and thus securing a first round home playoff game.  Coach Wayne Mills has done his best coaching job this year with his young team.  Bobcat pride still runs high on the Mountain!!

The SEC may not be as top heavy as people might think.

SEC

The SEC proved this past Saturday that it has a tough conference from top to bottom.  Several ranked conference teams took loses on Saturday.  Tennessee beats South Carolina on a last second field goal, as did Ole Miss over LSU.  Vandy beat a tough, but injury riddled Georgia team, as did Missouri over Florida.  Auburn goes into College Station and outlasts Johnny Football and the Aggies.  Only Alabama had an easy time of it as they blew out Arkansas for the second straight year.  If you know me, I am not a fan of the SEC, but it was great to see some these teams beat the “Heavyweights” this past weekend.

St. Louis and Boston for the World Series Title.

Both St. Louis and Boston punched their tickets for the World Series with victories in game 6 of their respective League Championship Series’, the Cardinals over the Dodgers and the RedSox over the Tigers.  If the World Series is as good as the League Championships were, we are in for a great October Classic!!

Oh yeah, the University of Kentucky basketball team had their Big Blue Madness on Friday night at Rupp Arena.  Get ready for all of the drive for number 9 talk.  Lord knows I am….If you know me, I was just kidding there……
