Friday, September 20, 2019 – Snark Day
The college football Snark is dry and had no effects of Imelda. Actually, I think Bryan received three drops while College State, four miles down Highway 6, received over 2 inches.
With the promise of a nice weekend, it is time to start the conference play. Things are about to get very real. Let us begin to see who is on the gridiron and when.
Tonight, we have the Utah Utes and USC at 8:00 on FS1. Yawn!
Also, at 8:00 we have eye wrenching blue field of Boise State hosting the Air Force. Talk about in the Wild Blue Yonder. It could be a good game, if, your eyes can handle it.
The SEC obviously did something to anger the schedulers and programmers of ESPN. Why? Because here are the 11:00 games. Get the pitchers of Bloody Mary’s and mimosas chilling.
- Florida and Tennessee on ESPN
- Cal and Old Miss on ESPNU
- Alabama and Southern Mississippi on ESPN2
- LSU and Vanderbilt on SECN
- Also, Iowa State and UL Monroe play on FS1. Iowa State gunners, please pay attention this week to where the punt receiver is.
None of these games offer great contests of interest, but let’s go Vols, Rebels, Tide and Tigers and I don’t care about the other game.
Meanwhile in the weekend city built on campus I shall be tailgating before the game between Auburn and Texas A&M. These two were formerly known as The Agricultural and Mechanical College of Texas and The Agricultural and Mechanical College of Alabama.
In this clash of land grants on CBS at 2:30 much will be discovered. Auburn? You have not played any team of quality yet. Aggies? Who the Hell knows what you are going to do.
Just BTHO Auburn and show – We Are For Real! 12th Man will make the difference in this one.
Baylor and Rice – Ah shades of the worse from the old Southwest Conference. I think the Bears will feast on Chinese food with lots of rice. Order your Chinese takeout with fried rice by 6:00 to watch on CBSSN.
And now to the evening! Pace yourself and put fresh batteries in the remote. Both of these are worth watching.
The Cowboys and Steers at 6:30 on ABC as THE University of Texas and Oklahoma State University kickoff in DKR Memorial Stadium. Lots of orange in this one. Let’s go Pistol Pete.
On CBS at 7:00 hosting the Gold Crowned Saints of Notre Dame are the Georgia Bulldogs. I am going with Saint Uga. Bring the Mary beads Irish, you will need them. RL, I shall be waiting for your usual text regarding Notre Dame.
PS – Happy Birthday, Mama! I know ya’ll are having a good time up there looking down on us!
