Why nobody likes Bleacher Report

They have an aesthetically pleasing, professional looking layout. They have fancy titles next to their authors names like "Special Contributor" and "Featured Correspondent." Their stories are picked up by Google news.

It's all well and good until you actually read one of their articles.

Exhibit Triple Z: "Featured Columnist" Dave Walker and his "10 Games That Could go the Little Guy's Way."

September 11th—Eastern Kentucky at Louisville

In this instate battle between the Big East doormat and the Ohio Valley favorites I actually think that the Colonels could be favored. Sure, they were 5-6 a year ago and snapped their 31 year consecutive winning season's streak, but they were young and went through some growing pains.

Louisville will go through these pains this season as Charlie Strong takes over as head coach. The Cardinals don't have a lot of talent, as former coach Steve Kragthorpe was not much of a recruiter.

Eastern Kentucky wins if

QB T.J. Pryor doesn't make mistakes. He was the OVC freshman of the year a season ago averaging just under 200 yards passing per game. He did, however, make mistakes throwing eight interceptions to just six TD's.

The Colonels defense should not be a problem as they have two all OVC players in lineman Andrew Soucy and DB Jeremy Caldwell. I am taking the Colonels by six.

So all Eastern needs to pull out a win in a game where they'll be favored is for their quarterback not to make mistakes. Ok.

If the Colonels are favored to beat Louisville and "take care of business," I'll have 15,000 words on why Bleacher Report is awesome up on this site before 10 p.m. that night.
