It’s CFB semifinal day in college football. But Saturday is going to have a hard time being as much fun as Friday was.
That was good for my soul. By far the most fun I’ve had watching college ball all season. That was wall-to-wall excellence.
Maryland and N.C. State got after each other. Maybe you were bored with all the field goals, but I wasn’t. That was genuine boys varsity tackle football.
The Sun Bowl seems to never disappoint. Pitt ultimately just out-toughed UCLA.
I wish Notre Dame and South Carolina had just taken a 15-minute break when the Gator Bowl ended and then teed it back up for another four quarters. It was that good.
And college football is a better sport when Tennessee matters. Wow, that Vol offensive line really protected QB Joe Milton.
Anybody else getting maybe just a little tired of Dabo’s act? Or am I being unfair? I concede that is a possibility.
I’ll be glued to the Sugar Bowl Saturday morning as an “appetizer” prior to the two semifinal games. That will be an interesting dynamic between Alabama and Kansas State. Don’t sell the Wildcats short.
OK. Michigan-TCU. Love the Frogs. Picking the Wolverines.
Georgia-Ohio State? When last we saw the Buckeyes, they were stinking it up against Michigan. OSU was in many ways lucky to back their way into the CFP. So the Buckeyes have no chance against defending national champion and top-seeded Georgia, right? Wrong. Ohio State can pull this off.
Gary Hahn has been the play-by-play voice of North Carolina State football and basketball since 1991. Apparently, he has done a good job. It’s hard as hell to keep a gig like that for 31 years. Friday afternoon, while working the Wolfpack’s bowl game against Maryland, Hahn decided to relay a score from the Sun Bowl thus: “Down among all the illegal aliens in El Paso, it’s UCLA 14 and Pittsburgh 6.” Adios. Three decades down the drain. And for what?
I’d rather take a whuppin’ than watch an entire NBA game prior to Valentine’s Day. But, yeah, I caught the LeBron birthday highlights. Yeah, he still has some legs…
