Morning Quickies

It's Tuesday after the long holiday, and almost everybody is back to work, wishing they had one more day. I'm one of them.

It just occurred to me that the offensive line played pretty well on Sunday. Despite many blitzes by the Louisville defense, Maxwell Smith still had a good day throwing the football and only got sacked twice, although he did have a couple of effective sacks when he was hurried. Still, considering all the blitzes, I thought the line played very well. The defensive line, now ...

Tweet of the morning:

Heh. Your quickies follow the jump:
