There are some good games today, there are some bad games today. Let’s see if we can figure out which are which, shall we? Or just come on into the thread and talk smack. Acceptable as well.
Welcome to Week Dos of my happiness, football season. This is a very VERY weird day for college football, and you will need to take a nap early and chug some espresso late to watch the magic that’ll happen. Do this today, thank me tomorrow.
I’m happy. Wife cried. Football is back. Praise the gods of pigskin.
Just preseason, but it’s like Methadone to a heroin addict. Combine this with Texas being in the preseason top 25, and I’m giddy for this fall.
Just gotta get through the summer. Until then, I’ll be watching NFL Network and dreaming.
Sure, there’s a lot to look forward to in the next month’s worth of college football, but not today. Today, we review all that went wrong with teams and the delusions of grandeur that were many of our hopes and dreams. Let’s start with today’s FBS 1-A schedule, in its entirety:
If Harbaugh ain’t mad, he ain’t Harbaugh. I like Mad Harbaugh. You should like Mad Harbaugh, too. It’s fun.
As we are almost to the tail end of the regular season and the beginning of bowl season, we have reached my favorite part of the year: RIVALRY WEEK.
Man oh MAN did you see last week’s games?! DID YOU?!?! I’m sincerely asking, because I didn’t. I was at a cheerleading competition with my daughters all weekend long. Guess who else didn’t see Michigan and Clemson lose to unranked teams?!
Last week: Baylor got taken down by Texas, West Virginia got blown up by Ok. State, and Boise State got rekt by... WYOMING?!?! There are now only FOUR unbeatens left, and one of them isn’t on the list to go to the playoffs (WTF?!?!)! Lets get down into this week’s games.
Last week was insane. Oklahoma and Texas Tech made history with their combined offensive outputs, Auburn blue the hell out of Arkansas, and Penn state defeated Ohio State in a game for the ages. How do we top all of that this week?
Last week was filled with blowouts, nail biters, shockers, and upsets. We’ve already had one close game (BYU vs Boise State on Thursday) and a shocker (Big XII declining to expand like the dumbasses they are), so let’s see if we’ll have any more!!
So, look... Last weekend was the worst football weekend of my life. EVERY SINGLE TEAM that I love lost, and EVERY SINGLE TEAM that I hate won (in a couple of instances, against my favorites teams). But let’s move on from that, as this week has some fun match ups. BEGIN.
As I write this, it is 8:53 am. AND OKLAHOMA STILL SUCKS!!! Welcome to a very special Saturday that occurs once per year: TEXAS-OU WEEKEND.
We have a couple of blah games this week, but there are some damned big humdingers too. Excitement for errbody up in hurr today!! LET’S GET IT ON!!
So last week, we had a few blow outs, a few close games, and then I fell asleep at 8:30 pm on Saturday night because there were no games being played after that time. Okay, maybe I didn’t fall asleep that early, but I wish I had. Why, you ask?
Now that we’re done with Slaughter Week, we can finally get down to some real, apples-to-apples college ball. Not to say that we didn’t have some decent games last week. Oklahoma State lost to their game to Central Michigan on an untimed, impromptu, glorious hook-and-ladder play that shouldn’t have happened because…
We are going to take a somber tone to mourn the sacrificial lambs who are set to be killed this week by so many Top 25 teams. This is a very sad situation that we run into every year, and it’s violent enough to make both Sally Struthers and Sarah McLachlan collaborate for a PETA commercial. WELCOME TO SLAUGHTER WEEK.
IT’S TIME AGAIN FOR FOOTBALL!! Not that crappy preseason NFL crap (my Texans went 4-0 in it, which means diddly squat), but ACTUAL GAMES THAT MEAN SOMETHING!! The NFL will start next week, but Thursday marked the beginning of the college season. Let’s begin.
ARE YOU READY FOR THE BOWL GAMES?!?? ARE YOU READY FOR THE TOP TEAMS IN THE NATION TO BATTLE EACH OTHER IN CRAZY LOCATIONS? Well, you’ll have to wait a few weeks for the GOOD teams, but the barely average teams ones start playing TODAY!!
