    10 touchdowns ... Burch 64-0

    Either their kicker bites *** or thats a typo.

    I knew I could count on you Pat. That's exactly what I was talking about. Their kicker was 4/10 on PATs. That's horrendously awful.

    I don't believe that 4/10 is the best anyone on that team can do. If the kicker isn't kicking worth a damn, get a new one. Jeez.

    There's also the chance that they went for two. But with a back like that, you'd think they could convert more than twice.

    Yeah, I noticed the extra point descrepancy almost immediately as well. And good god damn, 658 yards? That's rediculous. *Sends article to Mack Brown's email* ...

    Reminds me of the story of the Sugarland Express. This old dude was awesome.

    HAH! What a coincidence, I just learned about this guy on Thursday when I visited the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum here in Austin. He has a plaque located in the "Famous Texans of the 20th Century" section, on the 3rd floor. I remembered his specifically because the thought of 520 yards on 11 carries was an astonishing one.

    They ran a story on him in the Valley Morning Star this week, so I just learned about him, too.

    If you're beating people 64-0, do you even need a kicker? My high school team was ranked in the top 3 in the country for the 4 years I was there and their PAT/field goal kickers always sucked; I think I saw one go 1/10. But I don't think I ever saw them lose.
