Monday, April 01, 2019 – The Green Final Four

Monday, April 01, 2019 – The Green Final Four

Do you know why you are so tired today? You have just completed at 31 day March.

What a March of madness it was if you are a basketball fan. First on the men’s side of NCAA Division I. I am sure my Alabama buddies are as thrilled about Auburn reaching the final four as I am about Texas Tech reaching it. So let’s go Virginia Cavaliers. Beat the Tiger with the auburn fur. Let’s us remember that I picked Michigan State to win it all. Puffy Spartan! Please do not let me down. And finally, PLEASE anybody but Tech.

Now to the women’s side of NCAA Division I. Does anyone know the words to the Stanford fight song? Tonight Stanford will play the Girls of Muffetry – AKA Notre Dame at 8:00 on ESPN2. I wonder if Muffet will wear the lime green boa around her neck. Did you see those lime green stilettos she had?

Speaking of green colors. Baylor plays Iowa at 6:00 on ESPN2 tonight.

Speaking of even more green colors. The Oregon Ducks will wait for the winner of Baylor and Iowa State. Yesterday, against Mississippi State their uniforms looked like two of the colors in the Crayola Box escaped. It could be a semi-final of various shades of greens and yellows.

And not wearing green. The UConn Huskies will play the winner of Notre Dame and Stanford.

I am not wearing green to watch any of the games. I do not have any green pajamas. Sic ‘Em Bears! And what every the Dancing Tree of Stanford Cardinal (like the color, not the bird) says. Are we for certain really smart people go to Stanford?

If Baylor does not win, I will offer the following quote by one of my favorite, and so articulate heroines, Hermione Granger.

 

Monday, November 30, 2015 – The Monday after Saturday College Football Awards

Monday, November 30, 2015 –

The Monday after Saturday College Football Awards

You are fired. You are hired. You are on the hot seat. We were really just kidding about Les Miles. It is College Head Football Coach Turnover Time.

Will Clemson, Oklahoma, Alabama and Michigan State please report to The Committee room? Your press conferences and commercials with Larry Culpepper and The Cheese Round for The National championship are to be taped after your Conference Championship games next Saturday. OU, you can go Sooner than the other three since they are not yet locked in and “The Big 12 wins their championship on the field.” Obviously, on the field in the ice in Stillwater over Oklahoma State.

But back to the weekend.

TCU/Baylor – The Down Pour Award – or The Siren Award. TCU, please do not employ the siren during a down pour in a driving wind and rain storm. It was the third time before I realized it wasn’t a tornado warning. I guess the Frogs really do like the rain.

Here’s to Chris Johnson III from Baylor – it was your first start; the Big 12 Title is on the line, it is played in a driving rain storm in the opponent’s stadium. Talk about Baptism by fire. Nevertheless, well done. Not even the real Vikings, let alone a former Bryan Viking could have weathered that storm.

The Palmetto Bowl – The South Carolina Gamecocks rose to the occasion to give Clemson a bit more than expected. Go UNC!

Poopy Undies and CPR Award goes to Alabama for scaring the fan base against Auburn but The Tide did bring home The Iron Bow Trophy. It was ugly but there is no room in the WIN column for comments or style points. Roll Tide over Florida.

The Best Cartoon Head Exploding Award goes to Will Muschamp of Auburn. Coach Dicktionery Muschamp also wins The Articulation Award for making his parents, teachers and church going people proud for his way with words. He “religiously questioned something about God’s dam building abilities and then questioned the referee’s mother’s coitus status” and received an additional 15 yard penalty making the total yardage for Unsportsmanlike Conduct 30 yards. Palmer and Mushburger, we know you are both stupid, but even a five year old could have read Muschamp’s lips.

Just when I was about to award The Ugly Uniform Award to Oregon for wearing green and yellow glow in the dark uniforms, the Aggies came on TV. When did the A&M colors become Butt Ugly and Black? The numbers looked like iron on foil decals. Just say no to black.

In addition to the offensive uniforms, the Aggie offense looked pretty offensive, but here’s to Tra Carson.  He’s the first Aggie running back to break a thousand yards since 2011 (Cyrus Gray) and the first to do so in the SEC. Well done, Tra. Perhaps next year you will have a real coordinator for the offense.

To the Tigers of LSU – you are awarded The Best Psych Out Award for whatever is going on over there with Les Miles. When you figure it out, let me know.

It must be the same decision makers who decided to let Three Doors Down play with the LSU band rather than give the Texas Aggie Band time.  Here’s What I’m Thinking – next Thanksgiving, you will be staying three doors down from College Station – in Hearne.

Well, there are 16 games left and then we begin Bowl Season. There are 40 college bowl games. I am sure one will be kicking off near you soon. The question then becomes – Who Cares? Besides Nike and Adidas?

Friday, November 20, 2015 – Be Prepared! The End is Near. The Friday Before Saturday College Football Games.

There are only two games left in the regular season and they are like a Burger King order – Whoppers! Bowl Games are on the line; conference championships are at stake and all hell could break loose depending on the outcomes.

The morning begins @ 11:00 with #9 Michigan State and #3 Ohio State on ABC. An upset by the Spartans in the Land Grant College Bowl could create chaos for The Selection Committee. Go Spartans.

@ 2:30 #1 Clemson and Wake Forest on ESPN2. Yawn. Let me know the outcome.

@ 2:30 # 15 LSU and #22 Ole Miss in Oxford. Hotty Toddy . This is a huge rivalry. Eat your heart out LSU Fans. Look what I have in my possession – a commemorative shirt from the 1958 LSU National Championship. And yes, it is signed by Heisman Trophy winner Billy Cannon and it is signed by the player who threw the block springing Cannon down the sidelines against the Rebels for the winning touchdown, my wonderful cousin Donnie Daye. Geaux Tigers. Hang tough DD. FYI – this is why I am DRD and not DD. DD was already taken in the family.

@3:00 #2 Alabama plays Charleston Southern on the SECN. Please pass the cupcakes.

Night Falls and more screens are needed to keep up with these Whoppers.

@ 6:30 on NBCSN – in the Catholic Bowl the Catholics of # 4/5 Notre Dame meet the Catholics of Boston College in Boston. What a “mass” this could turn out to be.

@ 6:30 the #10 Baylor Bears at 9-1 meet the undefeated 10-0 Oklahoma State Cowboys in Stillwater, OK on Fox. This could have serious implications for The Big 12, throw The Selection Committee into chaos and set up a Bedlam Contest between Oklahoma State and OU for the ages. Since I know there will be family there, I am anxious to see who wears green and gold and who wears orange and black.

@7:00 #18 TCU vs # 7OU on ABC from Norman Oklahoma. The Frogs are sliding and Sooners are rising. If TCU’s QB Boykin is not cleared to play, Boomer Sooner will played ad nausea – like they do not do all the time anyway.

@ 6:00 we have Arkansas and Mississippi State on ESPN from Fayetteville, Ark. One never knows what those Razorbacks will do. Perhaps they can win in regulation.

@ 6:30 The Fighting Texas Aggies visit the Vanderbilt Commodores in Nashville, TN on SECN. Did you know that Vanderbilt University is the only altruistic contribution that Commodore Vanderbilt made? All of the other Robber Barons of the day spend millions on altruistic endeavors, but not the Commodore.

Helmets

BTHO Vanderbilt.
