So, yeah. Thanks to the SEC scheduling up some of the guarantee games on the schedule this week.... things are... shall we say... a little slow in the ol’ entertainment department around here.
Usually I hold onto the College Football Anarchy cheering guide until the end, but it makes sense to pull it up here to make my point.
See what I mean? Kinda takes a bit out of the fun to know that there’s a 99.99999999% chance of ‘Bama and Georgia winning.
Things go from “ugh, what a waste of time” to “you’ve got to be kidding me” as the best game of the day in terms of two ranked teams facing each other involves Notre Dame wearing THESE MONSTROSITIES while playing Syracuse at Yankee Stadium. No thanks.
With that game being rendered completely unwatchable, the new best game of the day is Cincinnati visiting UCF. Yes, both teams are ranked. Yes, I know that sounds totally whackadoodle, much less that it’s the best game of the day. Not only is it the best game of the day, ESPN’s College Gameday is actually going to be in Orlando. That’s how big of a deal it is.
what a time to be alive
Thank goodness I’m going to spend four hours of my day getting ready for, traveling to, watching, and traveling home from Marquette’s game against Presbyterian.
Here’s your national television schedule for the day. Keep an eye on those Big Ten Network and SEC Network regional coverage spots, y’all.
oh, and Go Cougs.
