That was over Sooner than I would have thought at the Alamo Dome. Not even token resistance from Oregon in the first half. One more thing about that game, and I’m done. Kennedy Brooks is a bad man. And the Stoops angle was semi-cool. So I guess that was two more things.
We are seeing “TBP”—Typical Bowl Pattern. Almost invariably, especially in “mid-tier” bowl games, one team at least kinda, sorta wants to play and the other team has no interest whatsoever. Maryland 54, Virginia Tech 10.
Still, our Bowl Buffet looks pretty tasty today:
Norff Carolina vs. Souff Carolina
Tennessee vs. Purdue (Will rock!)
Pitt vs. Michigan State (Kenny Boy Pickett!)
Wisconsin. vs. Arizona State (Could you find two more different head coaches?)
Think it’s over for Clemson? The Tigers just posted their 11th straight season with at least ten wins. We should all be in such “decline.”
CFP Semis tomorrow. Question. Of the four teams, which one is getting no attention whatsoever? No, it’s not Cincy. The Bearcats are getting all kinds of love. Answer? Georgia. And that is a mistake. Let’s not forget the Bulldogs were clearly the best team in the country for 12 weeks until they wet the bed for four hours against Alabama. Bad day at the office. You really think they’re gonna do that again? I’ll take that bet.
And for what it’s worth, Michigan is doing way too much yapping for my taste.
I am not an Aggie hater. I think some of their stuff is kinda cute. But I don’t want to hear any “12th Man” b.s. ever again. They had the ultimate “12th Man” opportunity. And they turned it down. That leads me to invoke the P-word.
Phonies. What did you think I meant?
Some people find Leach’s act entertaining. I am not one of those people.
Aaron Rodgers says he won’t drag it out this coming offseason. I’ll alert the media. Oh, wait…
That’s not leadership, Wentz. That’s not professionalism. That’s not smart. That’s not logical. And Reich actually put in a call to Philip Rivers? I’m pulling for Ehlinger.
Jimmy G. says don’t rule him out against the Texans. This, despite the fact that he has a fracture and torn ligaments in his throwing thumb. Try gripping a football without your thumb. I have disdain for fans who have a very high threshold for other people’s pain.
The Panthers will start Darnold ahead of Cam Sunday against the Saints. Duh. Cam won’t be there next year. Darnold might not be, either. But find out if you can save him. Do you realize that Cam has lost his last eleven NFL starts? Has any recent NFL coach ever fallen from grace as quickly as Matt Rhule? I mean, he was “Mr. September.”
Hey, if you’re up early, Chris Duel has invited me to be on his radio show on Ticket 760 at 7:06 a.m. Let’s have some fun!
