Vanderbilt highlights and other fine examples of oxymorons

Here are some examples of oxymorons:

• Military intelligence
• Jumbo shrimp
• Rolling stop
• Liquid gas

Oh, and Mississippi State Highlights.

As in video highlights from Vandy's mind-numbing 15-3 loss to the Bulldogs on Saturday.

It's 3 minutes and 46 seconds long. Here's a breakdown:

• 51 seconds: Various Vanderbilt tackles for loss
• 39 seconds: Opening and closing credits
• 31 seconds: Warren Norman returning kickoffs
• 26 seconds: Two actual pass completions
• 21 seconds: Sean Richardson's tackle and strip that gave us 1st and goal at the 5 yard line
• 18 seconds: The game's one touchdown
• 13 seconds: Upson punting
• 12 seconds: Vandy "capitalizing" on the turnover with a field goal
• 9 seconds: The team running out on the field with lots of smoke
• 6 seconds: An incomplete pass by one of the Bulldog QBs

So 26 of the 426 seconds are dedicated to offensive plays. Sounds about right.
