Saturday, December 03, 2005Saturday GameNight
Hurricane Gold: Although I was in an Alka-Seltzer Cold & Flu induced coma, I was able to sorta catch most of the Conference-USA championship game and it was a very exciting first half before Tulsa took control. Poor Central Florida will have to settle for a holiday in Hawaii instead....Drats....
Meanwhile the Golden Hurricane go to Memphis for the Liberty Bowl....Hmmm New Year's in Memphis or Christmas in Hawaii...Yeah that's a tough choice...
Congrats to Texas: For making Colorado look worse than they did last week. I didn't think it was humanly possible.
Congrats to Vince Young: Second in the Heisman voting is nothing to be ashamed of.
Congrats to Colorado: For officially showing NO pride in getting outscored 100-6 in the last eight days. Did Gary Barnett already sign his contract extension? He didn't. Oops. Sure Florida State is playing like shit these days, but they aren't going to roll over like the Buffaloes did today. If Barnett goes to Missouri, I think he's going to need an offensive coordinator...I know of one!
Problem #1 With the Current System: The SEC is probably the best conference in the nation...Actually there's no probably about it. The SEC is so good that the team playing the best ball in the conference (Auburn) isn't even in the conference title game. Why doesn't the SEC champion have a little shot at a national title? It's ridiculous. Are you telling me that USC and Texas would run either LSU or Georgia out of the building? We really need a playoff, just eight teams, no more...
Super Saturday: This has been a fairly disappointing day for college football. The C-USA game was good, but really, who cares? Big XII game was a terrible blowout, USC-UCLA is a terrible blowout...Even the SEC game, which had the most potential, is being dominated by Georgia so far....And ESPN chooses Louisville-UConn for its 7:45 game over USF-West Virginia? Uggh..
Problem #2 With the Current System: On ESPN I can watch Oklahoma-Villanova in college basketball, it's a 5 vs. 4 game. In college football this game would rarely happen because the best teams (sans Texas and OSU this year) don't play hard non-conference games...But in college basketball it's part of the allure...Play each other now for fun and in five months we'll play for REAL. We really need a playoff, just eight teams, no more....
FSU So Far: Not too bad, nice opening drive to get a field goal and nice early defensive stand. Not so good ont he second drive because they blew great field position and Weatherford took his first hit of the game and subsequently misfired on his next pass.
Non-Televised Score: West Virginia 7, USF 3
