Saturday College Football Thread

Eers v. Rutgers!

Are there any matchups worth watching later in the day? I have basically given up on the NFL. I still love the Steelers, but no one is going to beat the Patriots ever again, and it kind of takes the thrill out of the game when you realize the whole season is meaningless because in the playoffs you will have no chance unless Tom Brady catches pneumonia or is stabbed in his throwing arm by a jealous supermodel.

*** Update ***

Stories of Notre Dame’s demise make me happy in my pants.

    I’m sick of all the bullshit about the Pats and Brady being the “greatest of all time”. The Pats are a good team but any comparisons with past great teams just doesn’t cut it. The Packers faced great teams in the 60s. Think back to the Steelers of the 70s. They faced other great teams such as the Dolphins, Raiders, Cowboys and Vikings. In the 80s, the 49ers had to contend with the Giants, Redskins, Bears, again all great teams. In the 90s, the Cowboys faced the 49ers and Bills. The Pats have but one rival, the Colts. And the Colts only moved to the top tier last year.

    So yea, the Pats probably will come out on top this year but they can in no way be put with the top teams of all time.

    Being a Nebraska alumnus has put me on suicide watch every Saturday. Jesus! The Huskers aren’t even competitive with a good Ivy League team. Fear and loathing, man. Fear and loathing.

    Oh well, at least we still have the former Cheerleader and his band of Pillsbury doughboy-looking butt boys to kick around. WOW! Pillsbury doughboy-looking, twelve sandwich eatin’, … OK that’s enough … for now … Time for some good acid and Wild Turkey … I can pretend like the Huskers still play Division I football! Selah.

    First off, the notion of the Pats invincibility has been greatly exaggerated. Although you’d never know this, Peyton Manning’s 7-game stretch in 2004 when he set the current record for TD passes was more impressive than Tom’s so far. Peyton had 30TDs in 7 games and more yards than Brady. Even more impressive was that the Colts record during the streak was 5-2, meaning that Peyton was actually putting up mind-boggling stats when his team needed the production, not just to rub the league’s face in it because of the Belicheat scandal. Miami’s anemic offense scored 21 points on the Pats last Sunday, while the Colts held Jax to 7 points in their crib. The Colts defense is superior to the Pats, and I think Indy’s ability to run and control the clock will work in their favor next Sunday. The Pats have become more like the Colts of 2004, which of course was a team unable to beat the Pats. Look for history to repeat itself in juxtaposition.

    Tell me about it. Between losing Sunday Ticket (damn neighbor’s trees interfering with my signal), being kicked out of my suicide pool early, and it being quite obvious who is going to win this year, my interest in football is at a low.

    Kansas v. Texas Letters and Ampersand

    And of course, watch Troy blow out Arky State.

    Congrats on the Rutty debacle. What’s their headcoach’s name? Shiavo?

    Arizona State is going to have to prove its undefeated record and top 10 ranking today against the first ranked team it has played all season, as it starts the really rough part of its schedule at home against Cal. The rest of the season goes like this: at Oregon, at UCLA, USC and then Arizona, which always is capable of punching above its weight when they have the chance to spoil ASU’s season.

    If ASU can make it through that gauntlet undefeated, they can’t be denied the #1 ranking! I grew up watching Frank Kush’s ASU glory days and since then, the Sun Devils have had a good team only once every 10 years. This is our year, hoping that Coach Erickson has a lot more to give us… he got Jake Elway signed last week, after all!

    Go Sun Devils!
