Apologies for mailing this one in today folks but I can’t really be bothered to spend a lot of time on today’s nonsense. For nonsense it truly is. Minus the tonsure, I think the extremely bored kid in panel one would make a great avatar for me staring at the computer screen, trying to think of something to say about today’s ridiculous twist. Hopefully, our faithful commenters can bring the funny for today.



  1. Louisiana-Monroe used a 2 quarterback system last year. It’s way too much fun for most schools, and for Gil Thorp, inconceivable. (Whatever that word means)

  2. I see a halfback option play in the future…

  3. Northwestern did it for a couple of years. It worked well the first year when they also had an explosive RB to go along with them, but he got hurt at the end of the year and didn’t play the second year. The quick, running QB spent most of the second year dinged up, then the passing QB hurt his ankle, and the system collapsed.

  4. But will this be enough to win the Valley for Milford and get them into the playdowns? As we learned in the past few weeks of Funky Winkerbean, Bull Bushka has apparently coached the Westview High Scapegoats to two conference championships since Milford’s last football title. That’s embarrassing.

  5. Clearly the end of this storyline, not that I’m complaining. Hang it on the wall: the ready made black-framed P3. Our shallow young protagonists, now revealed to be hollow, see-thru; walking towards the light. 7 come 11. Cue the swelling music. All over but the shouting. I could go on.

    In P2, if “reps” is urban slang for some new upper drug, this all would’ve made a bit more sense.

  6. How many positions is this guy going to try in order to fulfill his 3rd grade dream? The WE experiment lasted all of one game . What’s next defense tackle?

  7. How often does a team cater to a mediocre junior ? My guess is never. The bored kid in panel 1 reminds me of myself as a lad. Can’t wait for season to be over.

  8. Never thought I’d find myself defending a Whigrub plot, especially one which on the surface looks preposterous. But this one may actually make some sense. In high school, before higher level specialization sets in, the quarterback is often the best athlete on the team, much as in the case of baseball, where the best pitcher is often the best hitter, the best fielder, the best baserunner, etc.

    Thus it’s possible they actually will “do some damage.” True can continue throwing bullets, and when the need arises for something a little different, Jarrod can throw an option pass, run the ball, or catch passes. I know it looks idiotic, but at the high school level it might just work.

  9. Billy gets CotD. I happened on FW the other day and was shocked by the lack of its trademark misery porn when it came to football.

    Along those lines the only “damage” I can see happening here is to True’s and/or Jarrod’s bodies. Why else would Kaz have name-dropped the country musicians/third-string and JV QBs yesterday?
