College Football Roundup: Holy S#it!

by

Oh man this is great. I woke up Saturday morning to post my weekly predictions for college football when I realized that it was the functional bye week. Hell, Gameday was at a freaking D III school for the pregame talking about museums. Then this happened:

This was supposed to be the off week. Illinois was one of the worst teams in the nation next to Duke last year and they just clipped number 1. Not only that, but Michigan lost to Wisconsin (It seemed like Lloyd Carr was saving the boys for Ohio State next week. He wants to make it to the Rose Bowl), and Notre Dame continues its exercise in futility by dropping one to Air Force making their game against Duke Football on national television next week HUGE. By the way, just for the record, we haven’t done the Brady Quinn watch this season because he uhhhhhh hasn’t taken a snap this season.

Here’s the deal, things had shaken out to the point where LSU and Ohio State were in the top 2, ready to head to the national championship. That is a respectable match-up. In fact, LSU v. Oregon still is. Here’s the thing? Remember about three weeks ago when South Florida was number two in the country, Boston College was #3, and currently unranked Cal had just dropped out of the top 2? Remember that? Well we are one SEC championship loss and one trip up through the PAC 10 away from Kansas v. West Virginia for the title. Sure, I appreciate how much parity there is in college football, but I’m not interested in waiting until January 8 for that game.

That game is going to look like this.

LSU was always the best team in the land and I hope they can hold it together. The next few weeks should be great.
