In his "Dodds and Ends" (get it?) blog, Dennis Dodd wanted to make the point that USC is an extremely vulnerable team due to inexperience at quarterback. A somewhat valid point, I suppose.
He cleverly catches readers' attentions with the headline:
Ohio State 55, USC 23Just for grins, I decided to insert Matt Barkley as the starter for USC against Ohio State in NCAA Football 10.
Really, Dennis? This is your job? No wonder our bloggers hate you. You're as smart as us but your employer pays you to screw around all day while the rest of us have real jobs like law student.
Ohio State won by 32. Barkley, the freshman quarterback, was game in the game but his team was lame. He was yanked quickly after his fumble led to a touchdown. Barkley completed only one of two for 23 yards.
I'm glad I got specific stats on a fucking PlayStation game that Dennis Dodd simulated.
This is the kind of shit that made people get pissed off back when blogs were slowly becoming a big deal: they inspire a lot more writing of a lot lower quality.
