This Week in Milford

True Time Tomorrow

Anyone else see this coming? Milford rolls thru 2 games with Jarrod, then faces a real team on the road, falls behind, and makes a panic decision to change QB’s even though to pull this out they also need the defense to step it up too. I would’ve let Jarrod finish the game to see how he responds to adversity, then maybe let True start next week with a full week of practice under his belt. Even though Jarrod hasnt really played himself to the bench yet. The long pass was a predictible call, and looked like the WR didnt reach as far as he could’ve. Its really a team game, and 1 guy just isnt gonna win a game all by himself; the QB is an extension of the rest of the offense.



  1. Jarroo will surely throw a better hissy than he throws the f’ball. They knew before the game that they had a better QB than ol’ Jarroo – what bizarre code of unwritten rules made them play him this long?

  2. Predictable turn of events. Now where will Jaroo end up ? Tight End or blocking back?

  3. Exploding eye crops up on #22, who also looks like he’s dropping the ball in an odd gravity experiment instead of coming up short on the reception.

  4. Gil is actually somewhat on the spot here. Unless he has made it clear that the position is up for grabs, he more or less has to stay with his starter until that starter goes on his face, and as unpleasant a character as Harold is, he simply is not to blame for their being down by three TDs. Thus in the present situation, changing quarterbacks is something like going to the rain tires when the real problem is carburetion. If if were the fourth quarter it would be an easier call– “We might as well see what Standish can do.”

  5. Once again Whigham draws a ball with a bizarre arc based on it’s direction of travel/impact – it’s bouncing away from #22 (Irish Terry Gallagher?) but the lines suggest it either slipped through his hands or was lobbed at him from a short distance and/or with a high arc.

    Once again the Toyota FJ Cruiser light bar is being used to light up the field.

    I generally don’t like the colorized version of the strip and try not to post it. In the B&W version Milford clearly has light colored helmets with a dark stripe and block “M”; if they were red with black trim there wouldn’t be enough contrast. Here however I’m kinda digging the red helmet/black jersey thing – kind of an early Atlanta Falcons or 2007 Georgia blackout v. Auburn vibe.

    I’m still calling the two-QB system. Jarrod could run the Wildcat if he recovers from those soap-on-a-rope beatings in the showers.

  6. That said, we have been led to think that True would have completed the pass in P-2. That is, by the way, one of the stranger depictions of a bounce we have seen. The ball had to be moving left to right, which would make the pass wide more than short…

  7. Ya know, I’m a fairly live and let live kind of guy, but I have to think that if Don Drebus were to switch sidelines you wouldn’t be seeing all of this shaggy long hair on the coaches or the players. For shame, Gil. alas your flat top – to borrow a Simpson’s quote, ‘a haircut you could set your watch to.’ – can’t counterbalance the unkempt manes of Kaz and True. No doubt it is their dubious do’s which so enrage junior flat top sporting Jarrod.

  8. Yes, a couple of long haired hippy type pinkos! Not representatve of wholesome
    Mid -America.

  9. Flat-tops! When I was a kid, the neighborhood barber had a jig for flat-tops, with a pair of spirit levels attached. The whole thing took the form of a large anodized aluminum “comb.” He could then just say “hold still,” run his clippers, and produce a flat– and level– cut. “Happy Days” idealized the fifties, which I remember as an uninterrupted grotesquerie…

  10. Is this 3rd game already ? I thought it was 2nd. Time seems to stand still in tank towns. Whether it is 2nd or 3rd game, why is Gil wearing a jacket? Back In my day, coaches wore short sleeves and shorts if temps were above 40. No doubt Gil is full of anti-freeze so jacket seems unnecessary. What a pud!

  11. […] did you overrun the ball then turn back to make it look like it came up just short, causing me to lose my dream […]
