Weber State Crushes Northern Colorado, 38-17

A little belated reporting regarding WSU, our mostest-favorite Utah Football team!
“So many positives for us today and I was really pleased with how we came out of the gates and moved the ball,” said WSU head coach Jay Hill. “We really played well on both sides of the ball and made some great stops defensively. Offensively we really ran the ball well which opened up lots of other things as well. We had planned on getting some snaps for Justin Shaw and he really performed well and took us right down the field. We got a lot of guys involved today and made some great steps forward.”

"We just have to stay together – what we're doing is working, we're just beating ourselves," (NCU) Coach Knipp said about the loss. "We just can't wait until halftime to put something together. We have to remain confident in our abilities. What we were doing in the first half was working, we just stopped ourselves."

Standard-Examiner: WSU Downs Sac State, 32-14

Congrats to the Weber State Wildcats football squad

Congrats to the Weber State Wildcats football squad for their Saturday Homecoming victory, wherein the "Cats" prevailed over the Sacramento State Hornets by a convincing 32-14 score.

Here's the lede from The Standard's Brandon Garside:
OGDEN -- Weber State quarterback Jadrian Clark threw for 216 yards and scored a touchdown to help lift the Wildcats over Sacramento State by a score of 32-14 Saturday night at Stewart Stadium.
“It was good to be back in front of a home crowd,” said Weber State head coach Jay Hill, after having the first two home games on the road. “I thought (the crowd) was a big boost to our players. Our players came out of the gates playing well.”
Read the uplifting full story here, Wildcat fans:
“It’s still not as clean as I want these games to be,” said Hill. “That game could have been 60-7 if we would have continued to execute on short yardage situations, getting a higher percentage on first downs, but it was big step in the right direction. A win is a win.”
Yesiree, folks. That's the kinda talk we wanna hear, as Weber State now heads on the road to face Northern Colorado at 1:30 p.m. MDT next Saturday.

Republican Debates -- John Kasich Nails It - Updated

So howbout it. WCF political wonks? How many of you spent the full three hours last night, watching the GOP Debates? GOP loser candidate John Kasic "nails it," of course, wethinks.

Classic update, via the ever savvy Ozboy:

"This Kasich (rhymes with son of a bitch) guy seems to be the onliest one in the current class of GOP Presidential wanna be clowns that seems to be almost consistent in almost making sense.Check this link out for David Axelord's take on these bozo's. Axelrod, in case you have been living in a Republican induced haze for the last 6 years, is probably the foremost political operator in the game today; "
Pay attention, peeps. Ozboy "gets it." Howbout You?

Merle Haggard Calls Contemporary Country Music 'A Bunch of Crap'

Well... Merle would know, yes?

Merle Haggard nails it!

“I can’t tell what they’re doing,” the country legend says in an interview. “They’re talking about screwing on a pickup tailgate and things of that nature. I don’t find no substance. I don’t find anything you can whistle and nobody even attempts to write a melody. It’s more of that kids stuff. It’s hot right now, but I’ll tell you what, it’s cooling off.”

Well... Uncle Merle would know, yes?

Comments, anyone?

UPDATED: Judge Jails County Clerk Scofflaw For Contempt Of Court

Surprise of surprises, LOL, in the wake of this!
Savvy retort from WCF Regular Johnny B, citing a version of one of the oldest lawyer witticisms that I can remember:

"I hope she put on clean underwear before going to court."

Heres Johnny' great quote, in what I consider to be it's "more perfect" form:

As the old saying goes, "Be sure you wear clean underwear, because you never know when you may have to expose your briefs."

Just another helful hint from yer old pal, Rudi.

Dan Liljenquist: Utah's Medicaid Expansion Proposal Unfairly Taxes Caregivers

Amen, sez Ernest T. Bass!

As the "powers that be" in our cold-hearted, GOP-dominated state gummint aparatus continue to dither on what ought to be the simple proposition, i.e, gobbling up tons of federal dough and enacting broadly protective Medicaid Expansion, here's an encouraging D'News editorial to stick in your craw:

In summary, we'll adopt this savvy D'News reader comment concerning this topic:
 "I'm with Dan on this. Let's ignore the scriptures in Matthew about taking care of others.The best plan of all is for the poor not to get sick, but if they do, die quickly.
Amen, Ernest T. Bass!
