College Football Championship…And Then There Were 2…

College Football Championship Clemson vs AlabamaAlthough we are sad that the 2016 – 2017 college football season is coming to a close, the country cannot wait for the Alabama – Clemson rematch on Monday night in Tampa.

Many of the Talking Heads had predicted from day 1 that this rematch would happen. The Tide and Tigers gave us a historic battle last year for the National Championship game and there is no reason why it won’t happen again. Explosive offense ( Clem-and-Son) vs. a stone wall defense (Alabama). Experienced Heisman candidate QB (Watson) vs. inexperienced freshman QB (Hurts). Legendary coach (Saban) vs. one of the finest young coaches in the country (Ya Ba Dabo).

College Football 2015 – Recapping Week 10…Separation Saturday

Week 6 College football

Since the finish of week 9 in college football, all of the Talking Heads have referred to week 10 as…Separation Saturday. There was #1 Clemson vs. #16 FSU, #2 LSU vs. #4 Alabama, and #8 TCU vs. #14 Oklahoma State.

On top of those powerhouse games, the schedule was dotted with other great and impactful games. Well, for once, they all lived up to the hype! All we heard on talk radio this week was how some teams got screwed in the initial CFP rankings that came out on Tuesday.

College Football 2014-Rivalry Weekend Is Here!!!

We are just hours away from one of the biggest days of the year in college football – rivalry weekend and fans all across the country are wondering, which team is going to show up? The one that plays to win, or the one that plays NOT to lose? With so much at stake, one bad play call, one bad snap, one ill advised throw and your team slips out of the Final Four talk. College Football A to ZJust ask Marshall about the pressures of that last game. Undefeated going into yesterday’s game, they blew it. Nice season, thank you for playing! Just ask UCLA. The Talking Heads were jumping on their band wagon Tuesday night saying if they won out, they would deserve Final four consideration. Stanford 31 and UCLA 10. Thank you for playing and have a nice bowl payday! Maybe if QB Hundley had spent more time this week preparing for the big game instead of being on radio talk shows announcing he will turn pro, the Bruins may have played better. Can you say…3rd round pick – perennial back up in the NFL?

I’m pissed! Nebraska kicks a late FG and scores a TD in OT to beat Iowa. Another 4 loss season is now in jeopardy for the Cornshuckers. One can only hope they blow their bowl game…and finish with their 4th loss of the season for the 7th year in a row. Bo just may save his job after all! Speaking of jobs, the door is open for a new DC in Aggie land. Texas A&M Head Coach Kevin Sumlin fired his DC yesterday and you know who has ties to the state of Texas? If you said Will Muschamp you would be right! This will be one of many opportunities for him. Will today be the last game for Brady Hoke in Michigan? Ohio State needs to win 49-7 to remain in Final Four consideration and they should clobber the hated Wolverines, but this is rivalry weekend and you just never know!!! A freshman QB for OSU. His first time in that situation. OSU struggled last week versus a pitiful Indiana team. Speaking of Michigan, do you think they made a big mistake running Coach Rich Rod out of town now? He had been successful every stop along the way. Because he wasn’t a Michigan man ( what the hell is that supposed to mean ) they didn’t want him there. Now that he has built Arizona into a power ( they will play Oregon for the PAC 12 Championship ), do you think Meechigan made a mistake?  Hey Missouri – don’t forget to send South Carolina a Christmas card. If the Gamecock defense had shown up in the 4th quarters of their games with Missouri, Kentucky, and Tennessee, you would be thinking about which bowl game you would be playing in and not preparing for an ass whipping versus Alabama next week in the SEC Championship game! Didn’t think Missouri would go to Rocky Top and win. Didn’t think Missouri could beat a suddenly hot Arkansas team. Don’t think Missouri could beat ( fill in the blank here ) in the SEC Championship game.

So what is going to happen today? Now that Georgia has been eliminated for the SEC Championship game, will they show up versus Georgia Tech? I think so! Georgia wins 42-24. Can the Gamecocks beat Clemson for the sixth time in a row? Yup! Steve Superior has Yaba Daba Dabo’s number! Thee USC 48 and Clem-and-Son 20. Will the Irish go west and give up a half of a hundred? Probably. The other USC 51 and ND 35. Gotta put my Badger cap on. Minnesota can’t beat Ohio State. Wisconsin can, and will! Wisconsin beats the great story called Minnesota 30-17. The Luckeyes prevail over the Wolverines in Brady’s last game 38-13. And all of America is hoping the Florida Gator’s rally around Coach Muschamp one more time and upset the Semin-holes. Great “D” beats an average “O” 20-17. Gators win…Gators win…Gators win!!! Oregon clobbers Oregon State 48-13 setting up their PAC 12 Championship game versus Arizona. In the Egg Bowl, Mississippi State, now needing style points blasts arch rival Ole Miss 41-10. And then there is the Iron Bowl. A ‘Bama win and they are in the Final Four. An Auburn victory, and there is chaos in the world of college football! Nick can’t and won’t lose 2 in a row in this classic battle. The Tigers are struggling right now and the Tide rolls 27-17.

College Football 2014-Recapping Week 12…The Convicts Escape…Again!

Ok, I am going to admit it, I am no different than anyone else outside of the penitentiary called FSU. I am rooting for anyone that plays FSU. That is what the 2014 College Football season has become. Everyone, and I mean everyone outside of Tallahassee, wants FSU to go down. I truly think that the college football playoff committee is hoping for an FSU loss to once and for all, get them out of the picture. We are sick and tired of the  accusations, lack of discipline, out of control behavior, and total disregard of the law that is allowed to go on down there. Not only is FSU undefeated on the field, they are undefeated in the court room…7-0. 7 arrests and 0 convictions! Talk about turning a blind eye to the law! This is a win at all cost program and Jimbo has lost all respect and credibility. The Winston case got conveniently postponed until after the season – not enough time for his lawyer to prepare his case. It’s only been 2 years! And the latest debacle involving a hit and run accident that is being swept under the table. Hey Barney, did you see anything? Nope, good, let’s go get some doughnuts and coffee! Good luck this weekend kids, we gotta beat dem boys down in Miami!

Let’s get out of the courtroom and back on to the playing field where we belong. Yesterday was just a normal day in the world of college football. Upsets, OT games, last second field goals, poor use of time management, miraculous comebacks, dropped interceptions that lead to eventual scores, bad officiating, and unbelievable performances. One of the big questions for me yesterday was, how where some of the previous week’s big winners going to respond? Would Ohio State have a hangover from beating Michigan State? Would TCU have a hangover from beating Kansas State? How about Arizona State and their thrashing of ND? Answers please, OSU escapes at Minnesota by winning 31-24, TCU comes back to edge lowly Kansas 34-30, and Arizona goes to Oregon State and losses 35-27. How about lowly Northwestern going to ND ( ND stands for NO DEFENSE ) and upsetting the Irish 43-40 in OT? How about ( predictable ) Clemson going to Hotlanta and laying an egg versus Georgia Tech? I think Clemson had to finish with their third string water boy as the QB with hard luck Watson going down with a knee injury and Stoudt throwing more pic 6’s that completions! And poor Duke losing at home to Virginia Tech 17-16! Coach C sure could have used some of Coach K’s offense! Has Auburn quit or is Georgia that good? The Bulldogs smashed the Tigers 34-7 in Todd Gurley’s return. Stay tuned…Gurley hurt his knee. Of course, the game of the day was #1 Mississippi State going to ‘Bama. The Tide flexed their muscle and beat the Bulldogs 25-20. Jack, I mean Zack, I mean Dak Prescott had 3 pics in ‘Bama territory – OUCH! Just when the Talking Heads said there may not be a team from the SEC in the Final Four, if ‘Bama wins out and Mississippi State wins out, we may get 2 SEC teams in!!!
