Scent of a Skunkbear

November 12, 2009

– One month ago: one pass from a win over Southern Cal. Today: complaining about cheap shots from Navy. How the mediocre have fallen.

Last night’s Volunteer Prius crime spree has prompted a name change to college football’s most prestigious off-season award. EDSBS’ Orson Swindle has announced that . . .

The Fulmer Cup is now “The Tostitos Fulmer Cup, Sponsored By Lane Kiffin and Cash Money Records.”

Just a guess, but we think Phil Fulmer is more of a Doritos kind of guy.


– And finally . . .  CAT FIGHT!!


So, What next?

Weis Moving Truck 12 of 20

I can’t speak for the entire Skunkbears nation, but Regis K. Discohater says onwards, and upwards.

Stay tuned for more on the future of ND football.

ND-Navy Game: Weekend Predictions

November 12, 2008

As everyone I’m sure has heard by now, Weis has taken back the reigns of the Notre Dame sleigh as only a jolly rotund man can. He hopes that this shift against the Sea Men will return the team to glory, like 2007….wait…

Some attribute this move to assistant coaching and point out that his record is actually worse than Bob Davie’s was at the same point. But in lieu of trading in his coaching headset for a commentator’s mic, Weis has taken matters into his own hands, leaving Mike Haywood JaHireMe a little less busy come Saturday morning.

So for my entry today, I’d like a take a stab at what kind of calls we can look forward to seeing.


RHD’s predictions: Philly Cheese Steak Pizza, Supreme, and Triple Bacon.

Crack that first beer early, game starts at 11am central time.

Friday Movie Spectacular

November 7, 2008

(Note: pictures issue resolved)


Since I’m assuming what few readers we have currently are probably hungover this morning, I’ll cut straight to an image-heavy post today.  As much as I appreciate the many collegiate football movies currently out there, I can’t help but wonder what Hollywood would do with a film based on current NCAA football. And while I’ve been almost more interested in what Bollywood would do with it, I’ll only entertain the former. Now don’t get me wrong, movies about overcoming odds and Disney-finishes are great (see the recent Walt film which should have been titled “The Express to DVD”), I need something a bit more contemporary. I’m not so much concerned with the plot, though, as I am the casting. We’ll start simple with the best loved coaches.


Charlie Weis played by John Goodman

I don’t know who better to capture Charlie’s charisma, energy, focus, character… ok, I admit, this one is 90% based on weight comparisons. Industrial Light and Magic has been contacted for digital runny nose shots. Acting notes: wear hoodies, hunch over press table.


Joe Paterno played by Peter Falk

Do yourself a favor and listen to audio clips of these two back to back.


Ty Willingham played by Denzel Washington

Mr. Washington heard there was a role about black man overcoming adversity and naturally jumped on it, not knowing this story might not have a cheery ending. Hopefully, Denzel likes DiGiorno.

When asked to comment, Ty said “It would be naïve on my part to think race didn’t play a role in this decision”


Mark Mangino played by George Wendt

The near-Notre Dame grad was inched out for the role of Weis, but kept in touch with producers, who said they had a role that would fit perfectly. Commence mustachetacular, Norm.


Nick Saban played by Javier Bardem

Fresh off his Oscar win, Bardem was eager to play another part in which he transforms a complete asshole into someone the audience cares about, regardless of his actions in the name of business. Bravo.

“I don’t want to talk about the polls, friendo”


Randy Shannon played by Carl Weathers

Who better to take on the role of the most interesting man in college football than Action Jackson? I thought so.

“…baby, you got yourself a stew going”



Lee Corso played by Mel Brooks

Separated at birth, neither destined to ever be taken seriously.


Stayed tuned for next Friday’s casting, this will be an ongoing segment. Now go back to pretending to work.
