It’s December. All respect to any high school football team that is still playing boys varsity tackle football. Football is always hard. It gets really hard in December.
Urban Meyer says he is not leaving Jacksonville. That statement has set off mass depression among the citizenry of Jacksonville.
The Steelers are 5-5-1 and looked and smelled like a bucket of warm, week-old puke last Sunday in a 41-10 loss to the Bengals. Steelers WR Chase Claypool says the problem is that the team doesn’t have music playing during practice. Chase says it would be a whole lot more fun with music. He said that. Really. He did.
Somewhere, Pete Rozelle is smiling. After 12 weeks, 21 NFL teams are within a game of .500, and 25 games have been decided on the final play.
The Cowboys have dropped three of their last four. The Saints have lost four straight. Both teams lost on Thanksgiving. Slump vs. Slump tomorrow night at Superdome. Taysom Hill gets the start at QB for New Orleans in place of Trevor Siemian. But to me the key here will be the availability and effectiveness of Zeke Elliott and Alvin Kamara.
The Cowboys may have an advantage in that Mike McCarthy will not be there to mismanage the clock.
Michigan looked great on Championship Saturday in rolling the Buckeyes. Absolutely great. But would it really surprise you if the Wolverines screwed the pooch against Iowa?
Don’t you be getting all smug, Cincy. Who would really want to play a very talented and loose Houston team that has exactly zero pressure on them?
Sonny Cumbie is the new coach at La. Tech. Good get.
Kentucky has signed Mark Stoops to an extension through 2027. Good keep. Little Stoops has done a helluva job in making Wildcat football something other than the autumnal appetizer to hoops.
I’m a UTSA fan. And I’m not a bandwagoner. But I’m not getting a good vibe…at all…about Friday night vs. Western Kentucky.
It’s Watch Yo Ass Wednesday!
The afore-mentioned Roadrunners might wanna check their backsides. That also goes for Michigan, Cincinnati and Okie State.
Georgia? Nah. The Tide can’t block that front. Bulldogs’ asses are currently secure.
You know a game I really want to see? The ACC Championship between Pitt and Wake. My two favorite quarterbacks in the country in Kenny Pickett and Sam Hartman.
