Come clean, fellow Astros’ fans. You were a little nervous in Game Two Saturday night when Houston took a 5-0 lead, right? I know I was. As Yogi would have said, “It was like déjà vu all over again,” but it turned out fine. Good to have ‘Tuve back in gear. Now it’s on to Philly for Game Three on Monday. No baseball on Sunday. Even MLB knows that October Sundays are owned by The Big Dog.
The Texans are a mess, and they’re in full rebuilding mode. Still, it’s a shame they are considering trading WR Brandin Cooks. He’s their best, and thus most shoppable, player. There are some teams looking for immediate help at WR, including the Rams, Giants and Vikings.
Tony Pollard should run wild today against the Bears. Dallas will feed him, and the Bears can’t stop the run even a little bit.
Let the countdown begin immediately. Tennessee/Georgia. That’s gonna rock. And, hell yes, Tennessee can win that game.
What has happened to the football program at Michigan State? That program has been in a slide—both on and off the field—for several years now. And the thuggery the Spartans displayed last night in the tunnel of The Big House in Ann Arbor was disgusting.
Here’s why Ohio State might finally break through in the CFP. Defense. The Buckeyes actually play defense now.
For a variety of childhood-rooted reasons, I have been a Rice Owls football fanatic since I was three. That of course has generated a number of mental health issues and personality disorders. But I’ve never been more disgusted with the Owls than I was in Saturday’s inexcusable loss to Charlotte. Unbreak my heart.
It’s a good thing I have my UIW Cards as an emotional life raft. That was a good win Saturday over Texas A&M Commerce.
Meanwhile, rumor has it that Texas A&M College Station still operates a varsity boys tackle football program. We might now want to put that to a vote.
