Friday, September 3, 2021, The Post Pandemic Reprisal of Here’s What I’m Thinking
Back by popular demand, here is SNARKY FOOTBALL FRIDAY!
Granted NCAA college football began last week. We could have viewed Nebraska and Illinois in a No One Cares Unless You Went There Game. I am quite certain that a Texas 6A powerhouse high school team could have defeated either team.
And there were football games Wednesday and Thursday. And there is football tonight on Friday. You can watch live. You can record and watch. You can download. You can stream. You can Hula. You can Peacock. However you want to watch your team, there is a technology available.
But to refresh your memory, I only write about football teams I like and teams that play teams I like. And since I have grown older, there are fewer things I like, including football teams.
Nevertheless, let’s see a preview of the chosen few that we will look at this season.
In the bloody Mary morning game at 11:00, we have:
Oklahoma University @ Tulane, except the game is in Norman. Even though your mascot is The Green Wave, Tulane, it is difficult to play when giant waves have just ravaged your city and state. Please be safe and watch out for snakes – especially Rattlers.
Get the errands done because the afternoon game of the week at 2:30 features:
The Crimson Tide of Alabama and the Miami Hurricanes 2:30 on ABC. Water, water everywhere and oh the TIDE ROLLS on.
But don’t put down that remote because at 3:30 on FOX we have Louisiana and THE UNIVERSITY of Texas. New coach. New QB. Same old stuff.
Gather more snacks and drinks and get ready for a dog and cat fight at 6:30 on ABC between the Georgia Bulldogs and the Clemson Tigers. This is a big one right off the kickoff. UGA and DABO. Somebody’s going down.
Check in on FOX to see the score between LSU and UCLA. Talk about a class of cultures. Game is 7:30.
Of course yours truly will be tuned to ESPNU at 7:00 to watch the Fighting Texas Aggies welcome the Golden Flashes of Kent State to Kyle Field. To the Flashes: Be glad you are not playing Rice University. The Marching Owl Band (The MOB) would probably play a Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young song. Ouch!
The Texas Aggies have not played a down this season, but Jimbo got an extension and a raise. With all that science stuff going on at the RELLIS Campus, Jimbo will probably be preserved and continue to coach until he wins as many National Championships as Saint Saban.
Next week I shall discuss The Big 12 Conference, which was really only ten and is now eight. Don’t worry though. I see the Mormons are coming.
