I’ve made a decision.
The Big Ten needs to do something to fix their football league.
Either A) They need to kick Rutgers out or B) they need to be worse in terms of general across the board performance.
Do you realize how depressing it is to have to pretend to expect Rutgers to provide something in terms of College Football Anarchy? For the second time this season, I have had to muster up the courage to actually admit that I’m cheering for Rutgers because of the College Football Anarchy rules. THIS IS CRUEL AND UNUSUAL, BIG TEN. This week is actually the second week in a row that I’ve found myself cheering for Rutgers, although that has more to do with my desire to see space aliens abduct the entirety of Camp Randall Stadium and accidentally launch it into the sun than with actually preferring the smooth football stylings of Chris Ash.
There are nine ranked teams on the road this week, so that seems like a pretty big deal. Don’t get me wrong, the slate of games doesn’t jump out at you and say HEY, ISN’T THIS GREAT?, but at least there’s something on the line with ranked teams on the road. The alleged highlight of the week is #16 Mississippi State going on the road to face #1 Alabama, but between you, me, and that wall over there, I think we all know that the Bulldogs don’t have a chance in hell here. On the flipside, I’m weirdly optimistic about #17 Boston College‘s chances at home to beat #2 Clemson and really throw a wrench into the ACC title game picture, not to mention the national championship picture.
Of course, I fully believe that Florida State is going to wreck #3 Notre Dame, because nothing says funny like the Irish managing to flub Syracuse‘s chances of hosting a game between two top 10 teams. YEAH. Syracuse is ranked #13 in the country, for those of you not paying attention. Chew on that for a while.
