Will Healy. As Weeds noted here, Healy the former UTC assistant and Boyd-Buchanan star quarterback now has won three in a row as the head coach at Austin Peay. To state how impressive that is, know this: Healy is 3-2 in your two with Governors, who went bagel-11 in his first year. Since the start of 2013 the Governors were 1-45 and lost 29 in a row before Healy's first win last month. The last time the Governors won three games in a season was 2011, when they went 3-8. Austin Peay has not won three games in a row since before we worried about Y2K. (Still working on the actual year.)
Deshaun Watson. Wow, that was staggeringly good. For all of us who pegged Watson as the class of this rookie class, well, his destruction of a Dick LeBeau Titans defense was an exclamation point on the early justification of that statement. (LeBeau's defense was 27-3 against rookie QBs heading into Sunday's 57-14 Houston win.) Watson's final line was 283 passing yards and four scores with four carries for 24 yards and a score.
Georgia. Yes, the overarching storyline from Saturday was the steaming floater that Butch and the Boys laid in front of their home crowd in Knoxville. But as someone asked on Twitter during a dizzying social media Saturday as the Bulldogs bulldozed UT 41-0, was that whipping more of a statement for Kirby Smart than an indictment on Butch? It's fair, and Georgia has a great resume, considering they pummeled Miss. State and UT and beat Notre Dame in South Bend.
Luke Falk. The Washington State quarterback and former walk-on looked more the part of NFL first-rounder Friday night than USC counterpart Sam Darnold. Falk was decisive and impressive in a crazy atmosphere that was one of the most entertaining games of the weekend.
Baseball fans. The marathon that is the regular season is over. The playoffs are here. AL Wildcard game — Twins at Yankees — is Tuesday night. NL Wildcard game — Rockies at D-backs — is Wednesday. We'll discuss this more tomorrow.
