Friday, October 4, 2019 – Week Six of Snarky Friday
Strike up the banjos; it’s the Battle of the Piney Woods! The Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks and the Sam Houston State Bearkats meet at NRG in Houston at 3:00 on Saturday. Even though I hold degrees from both of these schools, I am going with Surfin Stephen and the “Oh futures bright, ‘neath the purple and white…”
But, in an usual Friday Snark, I shall predict the game score using my grade point averages with no periods from both universities. SFA 16 (only my freshman year) and SHSU 40 (all 36 hours).
Moving to TV times, let’s see who drew the dreaded 11:00 time slots.
Oklahoma State and Tortilla Tech at 11:00 on FS1. Breakfast torillas! Oh boy, Cowboys and Cowboys. To not forsake me oh my darling…Go Pistol Pete and watch out for flinging tortillas! I hope it is a safe and happy trip back to Stillwater with Lubbock in your rear view mirror.
Utah State and LSU at 11:00 on SEC. Tigers? These Aggies are not as tough as the ones in Texas. Why are you playing them? They are going to fall out with the Red Stick humidity before half-time
Oklahoma and Kansas at 11:00 on ABC – See Jalen run; see Jalen throw; see Jalen score; see OU in a Boomer Sooner warm up for next weekend. See Kansas look forward to basketball season.
The Bears of Baylor and Wildkats of Kansas State kickoff at 2:30 on ESPN2. The Baptists are really gonna have to pray it up to rise up and Sic ‘Em over Kansas State.
In a game I really don’t care about, we have Bowling Green at Notre Dame on their network, NBC, at 2:30. Now that is a Bowling Green Massacre I would like to see.
At 2:30 on ABC we find THE University of Texas and West Virginia. Get the old couches ready to burn. They probably won’t burn, but this could be a good game. Horns could be looking ahead to The Red River Rivalry.
But the best game of Saturday is Auburn visiting the Swamp of Florida at 2:30 on CBS. Tiger, tiger burning bright, I really don’t care who wins tonight, but Go War Eagles anyway.
The Georgia Bulldogs are in Knoxville to meet Tennessee at 6:00 on ESPN. The erosion of Rocky Top continues and that coaching seat gets hotter.
The Spartans of Michigan State play the pot head stickers from Ohio State at 6:30 ABC – I hope Michigan State wears their Uniform Uglies.
Then of course there are all those games on the west coast.
Looking to Week Seven we find Alabama and Texas A&M. Both The Tide and The Aggies have a bye week this week as they prepare for a clash next Saturday at Kyle Field.
Alabama is using the time by probably having some skull practices, watching films, some light workout practice, maybe will get together to watch a future opponent’s game and perhaps see a movie as a team building exercise. Coach Saban will have time to make some commercials.
Meanwhile, the Aggies are working on a top secret time machine that propels them into the future where they are bigger, stronger and faster, have a true Heisman candidate at QB, a First Team All-American in the backfield, a defense that does not allow scores, and wide-receivers that can actually fly due to new, high tech shoes and cleats.
So far the time machine has been able to travel to the past, to Tuscaloosa, to November 10, 2012, with the scoreboard reading: Texas A&M 29 and Alabama 24 and the quarterback wins The Heisman. Thus far, a projected date in the future when this phenomenon occurs again has not been released. Who knows?
