If y'all get tired of this, well, I'm really not sorry. This blog is about the junk I care about, and College Football is high on the list.
My beloved LSU Tigers will start off Week 3 on Thursday night. Which sucks! I've gotta work on Thursday night, and I'm not sure where I will find a television to look at in a hospital.
But, I'll make do.
We gotta play Mississippi State in our first Championship Conference game. I mean, we've had two extremely easy games against the chump teams, Oregon, and Northwestern State.
To tell the truth, I'm a little worried about my Tigers traveling to Starkville, MS. I mean...the last time I was on Hwy 82, it could barely handle small cars, much less big old buses full of big old monster football players.
But, the log cabin Burger King was still open, and the Darkhorse bar at the Starkville motel was still open.
I have it on good authority that the log cabin Burger King has been demolished, and that the Patel with the Darkhorse still has a swimming pool with no water. Sucks. All the 12 to a room Mexican construction workers must be bored to death.
Anyway, we gotta play the miserable Bulldogs on Thursday night.
I'll find a TV. Trust me.
I'm predicting that we will struggle, because the MS State Bulldogs are better than they even think they are. And, they got beat by the reigning SEC (by default National) Champion Auburn Tigers just a few days ago. They will be out for bear.
But, my beloved Tigers will win this one. Probably by 10. I'm thinking 24-14. But, I could be wrong. Problem is, we haven't played a real football team yet. I guess we'll see...I mean, the first couple of games are traditionally scheduled to be easy. (And I still appreciate Corch Miles for not scheduling really easy teams like Texas A&M, Michigan, or Notre Dame for the easy games. We at least needed to play against a few players that are worth a crap before our real schedule starts.)
The most interesting game of Week 3 to me is the OU/Flarda State game...but it's really a toss-up between that game and the Boise/Toledo game (which I will get at in a second).
Flarda State has played exactly nobody...ULM (nyuk) & Charleston State (double nyuk)...yet they are ranked at something like #5 nationally. OU has played exactly nobody...Tulsa, and they are ranked at #1. So, at this point it's hard to make a pick, seeing as neither team has actually played a real football game.
But, I'm gonna consult the magic 8 ball deal...
"This game will suck. OU fans will go away disappointed with a 30 point win...because it should have been 50."
Now, back to Boise/Toledo. I'm calling a major upset here. Toledo will beat Boise. Write this down. Stick it on your 'frigerator door (catch that one, and winz you a prize). Yep. Toledo will beat Boise.
That's it. My perdictions...
The only other game I think might surprise within the Top 25 is that The Vols of Tennessee might beat Flarda. It's gonna be a close one, I think.
The rest of the higher ranked teams will win against their lower ranked opponents. The Gators just might get whipped by Corch Dooley's Vols. In fact, I'm gonna go ahead and call this one.
Either Flarda, or Tennessee will win this one! (Definitely)
