Saturday good morning quotes
Visit The Boston Globe Share on Twitter Share on Facebook Comment on this Scroll to top of page By Dave Barry December 30, 2018 We can summarize 2018 in two words: It boofed. We’re not 100 percent sure what “boofing” is, despite the fact that this very issue was discussed in a hearing of the United States Senate Judiciary Committee. All we know for certain about boofing is that it is distasteful and stupid. As was 2018. In spades. What made this year so awful? We could list many factors, including natural disasters, man-made atrocities, the utter depravity of our national political discourse, and the loss of Aretha Franklin. Instead, we’ll cite one event that, while minor, epitomizes 2018: the debut of Dr. Pimple Popper. This is a cable-TV reality show featuring high-definition slo-mo close-up videos of a California dermatologist performing seriously disgusting procedures on individuals with zits the size of mature cantaloupes.

Chris Solari Detroit Free Press Published 2:58 PM EDT Oct 30, 2018 EAST LANSING — There was some cleanup on Michigan State football’s depth chart Tuesday morning, with players who have not taken snaps yet removed. Nothing abnormal. There also was some rearranging within the two-deep. Including at two key positions. Quarterbacks Brian Lewerke and Rocky Lombardi are now listed as co-starters, while coach Mark Dantonio said sophomore center Matt Allen is out and will not travel to Saturday’s game at Maryland. “I think it's a good problem, let's just put it that way,” Dantonio said of his quarterback situation during his weekly news conference. “You've got a guy that played well, and we'll make decisions based on health and other things as we go forward.” It’s not as good in front of them.

Odds and ends to prepare your for Air Force rivalry game with Navy at 1:30 p.m. Saturday at Falcon Stadium on CBS Sports Network and KVOR 740 AM.SUBPLOTS WE’LL WATCHFalcons’ quarterback situationAir Force coach Troy Calhoun said this week of the quarterback position that “Anybody’s preference, I think, would be to have one person take every single snap.” And after last week’s loss to Nevada, when Arion Worthman’s struggles forced the Falcons into a quarterback change – and the unveiling of sophomore Donald Hammond III’s many talents – that “it’s unfortunate whenever you do that because so much of the attention goes solely on that one position rather than team-wise elevating a performance.” Clearly this is a coach that wants none of a rotating quarterback position, or ongoing question over the team’s No. 1 at that position. But that’s what he’s got. When Worthman burst onto the scene with a … [Read more...] about Navy at Air Force: Subplots, numbers and a quote as Falcons prepare for Midshipmen
