Friday, October 7, 2016 – Snarky Friday Before Saturday College Football
Before the Snark appears, sincerely let us send our thoughts and prayers to those in the path of Hurricane Matthew.
Also, let us send our love and good byes to LSU’s Mike VI as his cancer has spread. LSU is allowing fans to come say their final good byes to one of the most beautiful mascots in college football. A search begins soon for Mike VII. Mike VII will come from a tiger rescue reserve facility.
Paraphrase from Macbeth – “Enter the Snark with a taper.”
Baylor – A three-week BYE! Not playing for three weeks does not help your championship hopes. Of course, neither does playing schools like Kansas.
Florida and LSU – Hurricane Matthew wins!
Georgia and South Carolina – Hurricane Matthew wins again.
Coming to you live from state fairgrounds of Texas we have The Red River Shootout on FS1 @ 11:00 AM. This was once the game from which national championships came – THE University of Texas Longhorns and The Sooners of Oklahoma University. Now it is the game that sends rumors throughout the various cyberspheres. With all due respect to Willie N. …
“It’s a bloody Mary morning,
Someone’s leaving without warning
Sometime in the night.
And they’re flying down to Houston with forgetting him the nature of their flight.”
Speaking of Houston, as in The University of, we have the #5 untested Cougars playing the Midshipman from Navy on ESPN @ 2:00. Anchors Away, my boys, Anchors Away!
Before we get to Texas A&M and the Faded tu Volunteers of Tennessee, let us discuss # 1 Alabama and # 16 Arkansas that is on ESPN at 6:00. I feel the need to express this in language understandable for those rooting for Arkansas.
“Bubba, get me another beer while I talk. Just yesterday I was saying to my cousin and wife, Thelma Sue, that them folks from Bama better be careful. These ain’t no ordinary hogs. These here are Razorbacks. Just the other day one got up under the trailer and started rooting around. I run out with my AK 47 and started shooting in the air to scare it. He run under the car and damn near knocked it off its cement blocks fore he run off into the woods. Just saying Bama better be bringing it. Me and Bubba are fixing to rewire the trailers to borrow the neighbors cable to watch the game. Come on, Bubba. Race you in the four wheeler.”
Coming to your CBS station at 2:30 live from Kyle Field in College Station, Texas we have the # 8 The Fighting Aggies of Texas A&M and the Luckiest Dang Team in football – the # 9 Volunteers of Tennessee.
Since I am not going to campus at 5:30 AM in the morning to have my sign approved for ESPN Game Day I will just list a few ideas I had:
Reveille is prettier than Smokey.
What color orange is that? Bleach Faded?
Good ole, Rocky Flop: Rocky Flop Tennessee
Please Lee Curses, put the coon skin cap on to pick Tennessee so TAMU will win. (Also, make fun of Reveille again and you will not get out of town in one piece.)
Kirk Herbstreit – can I get my picture made with you?
Once, twice, three times a Hail Mary – not in the Aggie’s house.
Am I the only one who is commenting? Fun stuff today! You are on the ball!

Love this post as I do all of them. I do have to say that I wish LSU would leave the ‘real’ tigers alone and let them live in the sanctuary. Maybe a ‘tiger cam’ could be set up so this tiger could live his life as a wild animal rather than a captive of one. Very sad and selfish, IMO. I see you didn’t mention Mississippi State this week. Not that you should 🙂

I forgot to turn the page on my notes. On ESPN @ 11:00 am we have the maroon and white Bulldogs of Mississippi State versus Auburn. Don’t we always root for any school playing Auburn or Florida?
