This Week in Milford

Are The VT Players Attacking Her Because She’s A Girl Or Is It Because She Is Terrible?

It could be both I suppose.

Aside from that, I’m rather flabbergasted that Milford’s tactic is to put in a player who has been shown to be unable to compete on the assumption the defense will target her at the expense of their normal assignments, thereby allowing Austin Shuford a clear path to the end zone. However, I have to admit that it certainly seems to have worked.



  1. The ultra sneaky trick play is a draw?!

    Shoot me now.

  2. Wow, what out of the box thinking.

  3. Saw the response to undisciplined blitz in the game I was at Saturday. Offense suckered the strong safety into a blitz by showing a pass formation, the tight end annihilated the blitzing safety (he’s a tad bigger than Heather), the line influenced the play in the opposite direction, and a slightly delayed handoff = 40+ yard TD run.

  4. We previously established that the VTBoyz are “jerks”. And without Silent John around, to discourage cheap shots, of course they would target our fair lass (who may also be terrible). Because they’re jerks. In a dick-ish sort of way.

    Who needs gadget plays when you’re facing Neanderthals?

  5. * not to say this is at all satisfying or enjoyable.

  6. They need Menzie to police the cheap shots and trash talk

  7. I’ve seen Dick Butkus in the exact pose number 19 is in panel 2. He’s about to annihilate somebody isn’t he?

  8. That’s definitely a Butkus pose, but it appears 19 was fooled. I suspect that tomorrow we’re going to see a lateral from Shuford and/or a bad foul against HE, probably either unnecessary roughness or unsportsmanlike conduct.

  9. Remember as kids when we went to Denny’s/Jerry’s/IHOP/Cracker Barrel and we had those placemats where the fun challenge was to help some unknown adventurers find the treasure, drawing a line in all different directions, avoiding the dead ends and traps before FINALLY landing at paydirt? I think Denny’s has one called “Help Heather find her Identity.” You have to use Dad’s pen to go from bored-soccer-player-with-an-attitude to trainer to student to unofficial QB coach(bathroom is a dead-end) to daughter to volunteer assistant(Marty Moon in his studio is a trap)coach to stu(cramming for Finals is a trap)dent to tight end to… well, Dad’s pen might run out of ink on this one. The treasure is probably in Davy Jones’s locker.

  11. Thanks to robmize for the Butkus photo. After seeing Jive Turkey’s post I watched a couple of Butkus “highlight” clips on YouTube. They make your neck hurt just watching them. You know that moment when you are on the ground trying to figure out if your various internal organs are still in appropriate places?

  12. I love those old NFL films where they show highlights and have player interviews. One of my favorite quotes about Butkus came from Deacon Jones. He said of Butkus,”He wanted to put you in a hearse, not the hospital.”
    Another player that I can’t remember the name of claimed he heard a teammate cry and say after being hit by Butkus,”I don’t know…who I am!”
    Maybe some exaggeration but still good stuff.
