I had a scare a few minutes ago when my computer rebooted randomly. It has done so from time to time, and there was a period where it was happening more frequently. I’m guessing this time it was because the computer was overheated.
I’m getting some laundry done this morning before I head off to Hoisington for the Cardinal Classic volleyball tournament. Matches start at 9, but I don’t have to be there right at the start because Smith Center and Phillipsburg don’t play in either of the first two matches.
I compiled the stats from the Smith Center-Norton football game in the wee hours, and the numbers bear out the Bluejays’ dominance. The Redmen were limited to 113 yards rushing, averaging 2.8 yards per carry on 41 attempts. Norton, meanwhile, netted exactly 300 yards on the ground. and averaged an even six yards per carry on 50 attempts. Norton’s Jordan Dole nearly outgained the Redmen on the ground by himself, finishing with 107 yards.
The last five Norton-Smith Center games have been decided by an average margin of 26.6 points, an average score of 40-13. It was the first shutout in the series since the Redmen’s 60-0 stampede in the 2007 season opener, the game which sent Smith Center on its record setting rampage in which it outscored its foes 844-20.
I’m going to miss a lot of college football today because of volleyball, but it isn’t the first time, nor will it be the last. I will be home in time to watch LSU pulverize New Mexico State beginning at 6:30. If I’m going to Kansas City tomorrow, I guess I’ll have to hit the hay early in order to get out of Russell by 7 a.m.
Okay, time to put my laundry in the dryer so I can hop in the shower. No time to dawdle.
