UConn is partying like it is 1909.

After the first half of the International Bowl, there is good news and bad news for UConn. The good news is that Donald Brown has over 200 yards rushing. The bad news is everything else. UConn has more turnovers (5) than it has passsing attempts (1) and passing yards (0).

UConn is playing old-school football, and when I say old school, I mean pre-1906. At this rate I'm expecting UConn to break out leather helmets for the second half.

There are two advantages to this offense. One, the clock is always running, so that means the end of this football season is closer than ever, and two, I get to use this Simpsons quote: (Sorry, I couldn't find a clip)

Bart: [sighs with relief] Willy's gone for good. Now I can get back to my normal dreams: me and Krusty winning the Super Bowl! [Krusty, dressed in a football uniform, runs up as a crowd cheers]

Krusty: Bart, there's two seconds left. Now listen up. It's your basic Statue of Liberty play with one twist: you throw it to me! Knute Rockne called it the forward pass.
