Enter the Warzone, trending nowhere but here.
- The wait is over, Fresno State fans. It took two years, but you finally got what you wanted Saturday in Moscow, Idaho.
Watching Derek Carr dissect Idaho's defense as if he were in freshman biology class, it makes you wonder why the Ryan Colburn Era was even necessary.
- That was nothing less than a season-saving performance by the Bulldogs.
Lose, and you're staring at 1-5. Now, a victory at home against Mississippi doesn't seem that far-fetched.
- Who calls a fake punt on fourth-and-18 while leading by 17 in the fourth quarter?
Judging by Pat Hill's reaction, not him.
- It would be nice if the WAC Sports Network had more than one camera angle for instant replays.
Heck, grab some kid's flip phone.
- On TV, the Kibbie Dome actually looked like a hospitable setting. Amazing what $30 million can do for an airplane hangar.
- Not sure what to make of Jalen Saunders' scorched-earth hairdo, but the guy sure is burning defenders.
- When he's not hitting people out of bounds or spearing them with his helmet, Terrance Dennis is a pretty good player.
- WAC commissioner Karl Benson told the Los Angeles Times he took it "personally" and "felt betrayed" when Fresno State and Nevada bolted for the Mountain West.
- The NBA canceled 43 exhibition games, including the Oct. 9 contest in Fresno between the Los Angeles Lakers and Golden State Warriors.
Of course, that hasn't stopped the Save Mart Center from selling tickets.
- Hardly anyone expected the San Francisco Giants to repeat. But unless general manager Brian Sabean addresses his pitiful offense, Tim Lincecum and Matt Cain might bolt at the first opportunity.
And it would be tough to blame them.
- Last week, we lauded Merced's Doug Fister. Now it's Aaron Hill's turn. Since being traded to the Arizona Diamondbacks, the Visalia product is hitting better than .300 and playing solid defense at second base for the National League West champs.
- Does a third-place team like the Los Angeles Dodgers really deserve to win both the MVP and Cy Young awards?
Usually, we'd say no. But when you look at their numbers, Matt Kemp and Clayton Kershaw are hard to deny.
- For no particular reason: Jamaal Wilkes.
- Instead of Metta World Peace, perhaps Ron Artest should've changed his name to NBA Labor Peace.
- Clovis' A.J. Russell, who made his NASCAR trucks debut Saturday for a team owned by Native Americans, says he's "the low man on the totem pole."
We like it when the punch lines write themselves.
