Yep.  Same here.  I was even listening to the sample on iTunes thinking about buying the damn thing.

I think I bought 8 Mile back in 2003 because it was used in a similar fashion for the BCS Title game and hearing that song makes me think of that game.

Even though one of the receivers was ineligible, the Ducks still had to cover up both receivers to defend the jet sweep and not create an easy two versus one wide receiver screen.

Thanks for mentioning this.  There were a few times this year where I would see a WR lined up ineligible and start yelling at the TV.  I guess it has generally been a planned thing since I don't really remember us getting any ineligible man downfield penalties.

My kids go/went to Hilliard Darby High School and my oldest kid's first year was one Jeremy Ebert's senior year.

He was a quick and tough option style QB that led the school to it's first ever playoff appearance.  He also led the team to it's first ever win over hometown rival and recent football powerhouse Davidson.

He was a smart kid also so I was not surprised to see him being recruited by NW.  I figured, good for the kid, he'll get a good, free education at NW and be setup nice for life.  And then I started seeing NW highlights and seeing him mentioned.  So I started following NW a little bit more.  In the local kid doing well sort of way.  He turned into a very nice NCAA receiver while at NW.

Just so happened to be watching Red Zone network last week and then heard his name mentioned again.  He's playing WR for the Jags right now.  Only has 2 receptions for the year but hell, that is more than 99.99% of high school WR's out there.  He can say he's playing in the league.

In some ways I always looked at him as NW's Sanzenbacher.  The not quite tall enough, not fast enough, but quick WR that has great hands.

I see you forgot to mention that Darby won that game.  This was mainly due to the play of their QB, Jeremy Ebert who played WR four years at NW and was drafted by the Patriots.

Darby hasn't beat Davdison since that game but they play again tonight with the best chance of beating Davidson since then.
