This Week in Milford

Take That, Jerks!

The Secret Pelwecki sniffed out the screen. We can’t see the whole formation, but we’ll presume that there were some Valley Techsters in place over there somewhere to block for the receiver. Like Austin Shuford, The Secret Pelwecki can make magic happen and he just juked his way into the backfield. We get it. Heather Burns strategies imbue the Mudlarks with otherworldly gifts. This is our story.

At Least Dick Butkus Didn’t Get WHUDed By A Girl

Filed under: actual action, Exploding Eyeball Syndrome, football, Marty Moon — nedryerson @ 7:17 am


Marty be like…


So our astute commentariat know what a draw is and also recognize how obvious a choice it is as a counter to a team with blitzing tendencies.  Seriously, you guys have been all over it, stripping most of the meat off that bone.

So, I guess now we move on to dissecting the action as described in Shuford’s run. The kindest criticism I can level at it is that two panels are not nearly enough to show me how all this action unfolded without questioning the fundamental logic of geometry and defensive fundamentals. Also, if Austin Shuford was that much of an elusive open field runner, why hasn’t he been more involved in the offense?

Have at it folks.

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

Filed under: ?, actual action, big arms, football, Milford Idiots — timbuys @ 11:25 am


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.

Did Gil And Trainer Rick Scott Ever Talk About Heather’s Injury?

Filed under: actual action, football, Gil Thorp, What the hell is going on here? — timbuys @ 12:42 pm


Today’s strip is a truly frustrating one to review. So much packed into so little space when we’ve wasted days on arcane plot twists. In view of that, I will simply point out that it’s pretty great that we now can all refer to Valley Tech as VT.

Rick Scott Don’t Need This Crap

Filed under: Exploding Eyeball Syndrome, football, Trainer Rick Scott — nedryerson @ 5:24 am


Looks like HE the TE is still several steps ahead of the Milford coaching staff and she’s taking it upon herself to exit the game. That’s just swell.

Panel 1 has one of those M.C. Escher like illusions where Trainer Rick Scott is next to Heather from the waist up but behind her from the waist down. In Panel 2, Trainer Rick Scott is at his Jean Luc Picard-iest. Dr. Pearl, here’s my completed retirement packet. Make it so!

Happy Thanksgiving everybody. Stay safe.

Thinking Long-Term? Is That Even Allowed?

Filed under: actual action, football, Gil Thorp, Just plain sad — timbuys @ 7:35 am


P1: “But don’t worry, even though you’re totally ineffective, you’ll still get snaps for some reason.”

P2: Super Moon! How topical!

P3: Again, Hakeem’s form looks terrible.

Have a happy Thanksgiving everyone!

So, Who Is Coaching The QB’s At Milford Anyway?


Among my many athletic shortcomings, the ability to throw overhand is perhaps the worst. That said, I can confidently state that my technique is better than Hakeem’s in panel two.

Bonus point: We have upgraded from an Ampeg 6×10 to the mighty Ampeg 8×10!

Hakeem On The Hot Seat?

Filed under: actual action, football — timbuys @ 7:29 am


It appears the story is setting up that HE Burns is such a terrible blocking TE that she is going to cost the QB his job and…. then they’ll put in succession of backup QB’s eventually leading to Moose getting his chance? It’s a hell of a plan on Heather’s part but I have to respect how she is playing an extremely long game here.
