I once again missed my rundown on Monday. I apologize again to my 5 or 6 readers, family takes precedent, and time wasn’t really available. I should be back this week, so um, mark your calendars. What will we see in Week 10? Is FSU you really asking Miami to bite the pillow? Is it true that Mark Dantonio’s custom sideline outfit is flame retardant? And is there enough grain alcohol in Jacksonville to enable the masses to sit through four quarters of Florida and Georgia? JOIN US NOW.
Running down last week, real quick like…
- – Missouri was ranked #5 in the country because the media put them there. They are not, and were never legitmate National Championship contenders. Even if they didn’t aspirate against the Gamecocks, they weren’t beating Texas A&M and/or Alabama. Twas fun to hear the media discuss the idea though.
- – Ohio State. We’ve been waiting for THAT all year.
- – Giant F-U to Fox for pulling a pretty close and fun Oklahoma and Texas Tech game for baseball pregame, giving viewer no other options but Fox Sports 2, which no one has. If you’re going to show college football to lead into the World Series either (1) Start it earlier or (2) Commit to a better backup plan
Miami – FSU
Trey: This is a rivalry that decides National Championships!* Miami has struggled against some pretty bad football teams the last few weeks, and don’t have a whole lot of testicular girth on their resume, in fact they’ve beaten one team with a winning record (Georgia Tech). On the other hand, Florida State has put games away in the first quarter. That my friends, is why the 20+ point spread not only exists, but is warranted. FSU by a billion.
Oklahoma State – Texas Tech
Trey: (Those who require a thorough dose of offensive football to remain adequately hinged together please focus on this game, and this game only. The remainder of Saturday will feature a heavy dose of blowouts and field goals) I want Texas Tech to run the table, get to a BCS bowl and sexify a random Wednesday night in early January. A better question, which Big 12 coach would you rather see shirtless? I thought so.
Michigan – Michigan State
Trey: This is some sort of disgusting rivalry that the owner of this fine site plays up every year. The winning team gets to take their place on the mantle next to coney runs, Diet Vernors, and Government Bail-outs as things that have been positive within the State of Michigan the last 5 years.
Wisconsin – Iowa
Trey: Just saying these two states names make me bored. Not bored – bored, but bored.
Florida – Georgia
Trey: STAY AWAY. There is nothing good that can come from watching this game. These two teams are essentially battling to avoid Birmingham in the postseason, even if that means a return trip to Jacksonville. Do anything. Mow the yard. Jump off a roof and have your wife take you to the ER. Punch a cop. Test ricin on your gums. Just don’t subject yourself to this. By gosh. Don’t subject yourself to this.
*Rivalry promises to decide National Championships every 15 years or so.
