Monday, November 15, 2021 – My Monday After College Football Awards
There are only a few awards for this week because, well, I don’t know. It’s just short.
A&M 19 – Ole Miss 29 – Let’s get it over with and start with the Texas Aggies receiving the John Greenleaf Whittier Award. For all sad words of tongue and pen, the saddest are these, “It might have been.” Nevertheless, The 12th Man still stands.
But on to happier things.
Alabama 59 New Mexico State 3 – You are not getting an award for this blowout. You may have a cupcake. I know the cafeteria workers played the last five minutes.
Arkansas 16 LSU 13 in Overtime. Let’s give both teams a Participation Certificate and a Poopy Undies Award. There is always Thanksgiving to think about.
Iowa State 38 Texas Tech 41 – Tech wins the Kicker Award for kicking a 62 yard field goal to win the game. Of course in typical Tech fashion, Tech receives the Police Escort Award for security having to escort their fans (i.e. students) from the stadium for throwing trash (could it be tortillas?) on to the field.
Speaking of sportsmanship, OU claims poor sportsmanship on Baylor for kicking a late field goal. What else you got, OU? Here, you can take home, the Boy, Am I Pissed Off Award. Let me “take one second” and give Baylor Second Place in the Best of the Best Award. OU 14 Baylor 27.
Mississippi State 43 Auburn 34 – I am giving the entire Bulldog team the Best of the Best Award. Air Raid Mike does it again! It was the last flight of the Auburn War Eagle. Just like the first war eagle, this one (as in team) took a nose dive and died in the end zone. So much for the Iron Bowl.
Kansas 57 Texas 56 OT – I am awarding the entire team of Kansas Jayhawks the Even Better Than the Best Award. I am awarding texas an album from the group, Kansas. And horns? You also receive the “Is My Face Red” Embarrassment Award for not only losing to Kansas, but in DKR Memorial Stadium in Austin and in OT. The SEC would like to revoke the invitations to both OU and TU.
