Pop Quiz Thursday — Disappointing overranked preseason teams edition

Luckily for Auburn or West Virginia, one team gets a chance to save some face tonight and earn a little bit of respect back. Then again, beating a mediocre team on a Thursday night isn’t really that big of an accomplishment.

Mad Handles — Glad they decided to hide this one on Thursday night. Auburn 6, West Virginia 4

Slow Jerk — Have two “good” teams ever been ground into the shit so much as these two? WVU 3, Auburn 0

Smooth as Eggs — After watching Pat White and Noel Devine blaze past the speedy Tigers D (it has to be speedy. It’s an SEC defense.), Tuberville will decide to get with the times and implement the spread. Oh wait…. West Virginia 27, Auburn 14

The Right Rev — I’m still laughing at Auburn for losing to an Arkansas passing offense lead by Casey Dick. Dicks. West Virginia 17, Auburn 10

STQ Week 7 Pop Quiz

Consider us here at Streaking the Quad as the SEC of college sports blogs. Well, yes, we are the greatest even though we have no way of actually proving that. But that isn’t what I meant. Rather, we came out flat last week and forgot to show up.

Lesson learned. It won’t happen again. To ensure that, Mad Handles spent the week pulling tires, Slow Jerk ran steps, The Right Rev had to listen to about a billion jokes about his smoking hot sister and I, Smooth as Eggs, was forced to watch a replay of Auburn-Mississippi State. Trust me, after that torture, your beloved professors are ready to raise their game.

Standings

Smooth as Eggs — 114-35 (0-1 this week)

Slow Jerk — 112-37 (1-0)

The Right Rev — 111 -38 (1-0)

Mad Handles — 110-39 (1-0)

Pop Quiz – ACC Thursday Edition

So, forgive your professors at STQ for not getting this up sooner — we’ve been busy studying up on the important games — you know, the ones played on Saturday. Better late than sorry, here is how the resident experts break down the conference clash between Wake Forest and Clemson.

Mad Handles — So much for preseason polls, right? I mean, if we were going by what the “experts” predicted before anyone played a down, Clemson would have rolled in this one. Wake 21, Clemson 17

Slow Jerk — Nothing (everything) makes me more excited (brain-fried bored) than a great (god-awful) matchup between teams (random gathering of athletic college students) from the powerful (ball-less) ACC Conference (AARP). Wake 21, Clemson 19

Smooth as Eggs — Consider this a hunch, since Tommy Bowden is still a leading candidate for worst coach in America and Jim Grobe is a genius. But, at some point, the Tigers’ talent will look good for a game. Clemson 20, Wake Forest 17

The Right Rev — Congratulations, Tommy Bowden. Once again, you coach the most disappointing team in college football. You’ve ALMOST got the lifetime achievement award sewed up. Wake 19, Clemson 17
