This Week In Schadenfreude: Bees hit bottom

The internet plus college football equals disaster. This week: Georgia Tech fans visualize their secondary, buckets of scotch at Virginia Tech, a giant Jim Leavitt head, the return of Squinky, some guy's wife grows a member, Stanford being vituperative, and obviously Hogville.

Geno Smith, WVU are racking up ridiculous stats

Midway through the third quarter, Baylor and West Virginia have combined for 84 points. They had 70 at the half, and neither defense looks too interested in putting up a fight. Add it all up and you've got ridiculous stat lines that are sure to grow to even more ridiculous levels before this game is over.

  • Geno Smith is 34-of-38 for 436 yards and six touchdowns. There's still nine minutes left in the third quarter.
  • That's more touchdowns than incompletions for Smith, also known as the Robert Griffin III stat.
  • Marc Bulger held the school record for touchdowns in a game, but Smith is threatening to put the thing out of reach. The record was six, and Smith has already tied it. The way we're going, Smith could get into double-digits
  • Tavon Austin: 12 catches for 204 yards and two touchdowns.
  • Stedman Bailey: Nine catches for 126 yards and three touchdowns
  • J.D. Woods: 10 catches for 85 yards and a touchdown
  • West Virginia has 532 total yards so far, 436 of which have come through the air.
  • Andrew Buie has 66 yards on 14 carries, so West Virginia could pile a 100-yard rusher on top of all this.

The game isn't out of reach by any means, meaning there's no reason for Dana Holgorsen to take his foot off the gas (as if he would anyway). Everyone just sit back and watch the show.

Did Nick Florence cross the line?

Bears QB Nick Florence got mighty close to the line of scrimmage before throwing the eleventy-twelfth touchdown of Baylor-West Virginia. After further review, officials concluded he did not cross, meaning yet another touchdown rang up the scoreboard.

Have a look for yourself, but keep in mind the blue line isn't official, and is just FOX's best estimation of where the line is:

Nickflorence_medium

Going by the line, he appears to have executed a perfect handball shot. Remember handball? The internet loved that sport.

This feels super important right now, as it's 35-35 at the half, but seriously, we won't even remember this after like 17 more touchdowns.

The slow mo version:

Johnny Manziel is the new Gunslinger

Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel is so fun, he really should have more nicknames. I've been trying to add Johnny Touchdowns to his current Johnny Football handle, but it's not taking. Also going to recommend Johnny Pablo (via taking his shirt off), Johnny Tebow (via the play below) and so forth, but seriously:

Johnnyspaz_medium

He's the new Gunslinger. That's all there is to it.

This play was allegedly supposed to be a screen, did not turn out that way at all, was totally exasperating to watch for both sides, involved strange quarterback athletic weirdness and resulted in success. He is the Gunslinger.

Catch of the day nominee by Anthony Amos

Middle Tennessee's Anthony Amos snagged this touchdown pass with the middle of one hand, then brought it into his middle while landing left of the middle of Georgia Tech's end zone. He was open thanks to a little bit of trouble in the middle of Al Groh's secondary. Georgia Tech plays in the middle of Atlanta, which is near the middle of Georgia. The ACC is more or less in the middle of football conferences.

Catch of the day nominee -- my favorite part is how he never actually touches it with his other hand:
