Sunday Sauce

It has been a difficult season to be a Nebraska Cornhusker fan. While I have total faith in Scott Frost’s ability to bring the program back, it is obvious that Nebraska is not really capable of being competitive right now, especially in the Big Ten.

I am not a big college football fan, but I am probably a rarity in that I am neither an Alabama fan nor an Alabama “hater.” However, I just had to write about the amazing performance, so far, of their starting quarterback, Tua Tagavailoa. He led Alabama to a victory in the National Championship game last year despite having hardly played at all during the season.

His 2018 season, so far, is almost hard to fathom. For example, yesterday against overmatched Arkansas, Tagavailoa completed 10 of 13 passes for 334 yards and four touchdowns. For the season he has completed 76 of 101 passes (75.2%) for 1,495 yards—14.80 yards per attempt!—with 18 touchdowns and 0 interceptions. His college passer rating is 258.4. The current record for passer rating in a season at the FBS/Division I level is 198.9. The record at any level is 225.0.

I have no idea if he will continue to produce at this level against better opponents, he probably won’t, but being a “numbers guy” his numbers are just incredible.


OK, I want you to tell me what you think. Which exotic Italian car manufacturer do you prefer, Ferrari or Lamborghini? You can use any criteria you choose. I will not offer my opinion until after I hear from some of you. Here are some photos to get you started:

From a picture of the new,”entry level” Ferrari, the Portofino. This model replaced the California in the Ferrari lineup.

From a picture of a Ferrari 488 GTB. Obviously, all Ferrari and Lamborghini models have amazing performance and exotic looks.

From a picture of a Lamborghini Aventador.

See the source image

From Wikipedia a picture of a Lamborghini Huracan. The Huracan is the “lesser” of the two Lamborghini models in that it is powered by “only” a V-10 engine and does not have the “wild” styling of the “upper-class” model, the Aventador. That car has a V-12 engine of larger displacement.

OK, which make do you prefer? Ferrari or Lamborghini?
