Hey Y’all,

 

I hope you all are putting the finishing touches on your holiday plans. If you are still waiting to purchase the first present of the season like me, I truly hope that if you find yourself in the same boat that I constantly live in. That boat is captained by a wonderful spouse that has done everything for you. My life is so easy in the aspect that all I have to do is show up and everything has been done for me. I remember the stress of running around on Christmas Eve trying to find the perfect gift for the person who has everything and wants nothing. That just takes the fun out of the holiday. The best present any ever gave me is my wife.

 

Many of you are family, others are friends and most of you are just readers of some of my thoughts. I want to say that I am very blessed this holiday season and the second best gift ever is a good friendship. I am that guy who has everything and lacks for nothing in life. So if you are flat out broke and don’t have two nickels to rub together like Shy Dogg and Mikey, please give me the gift of a nice comment after you finish reading my incoherent babbling.

 

I also know there are many of you are like my good friend Morgan who wants to get me a gift this year. I hope you all are as poor as a rich airline Captain so you can afford the very best for your little buddy Rob. I will be perfectly happy to accept your gifts if you choose to sooth your conscience with a large cash donation. Don’t be a tightwad like Scotty and give me a million Iraqi dinar. I have wallpapered three rooms in my house with that monopoly money and if you run in a higher tax bracket like Billy where everything is a tax write off, be aware that I am not a charity so your giving will not be a tax deduction. But if you are like Jarred and can’t sleep at night, hopefully I can help you release that burden because your hard earned money is going to a great cause, me.

Many of you know that I am not one to forward e-mails. I am not moved to tears or spurred into action by a power point slide of whatever your personal cause might be. I don’t read forwarded e-mails, I very rarely take the time to watch a video clip no matter how funny, moving or emotional it might be, and I never feel the first pang of guild when I don’t continue that e-mail chain.  Armed with that knowledge, my wife told me about a friend’s family tradition for Christmas. At first I was like that is kind of cool but honestly I wasn’t impressed because my answer to the question is probably the same as everyone in my little circle of life. I know how small groups of people that live back in the holler lack out of the box thinking.

 

But when I thought about a holiday blog post, I couldn’t think of a more appropriate question for the holiday season. It is a simple question and I would like to take the opportunity to open the floor to everyone in the blog-o-sphere.

To my Christian friends, I ask this. “What would you give Jesus for Christmas?”

 

Yes, Christmas is a Christian holiday but in the United States, most everyone celebrates the season with friends and family. It might be an American holiday, but almost every country in the world has set aside the 25th of December as a day to celebrate something.

I would like to say hello to our good friend Koji. Happy Holidays, sir! To all of our Buddhist friends, I ask this question. “What would you give Buddha for the holidays?”

To my Muslim friends I ask. “What would you give Muhammad for the holidays?”

I have several friends who are atheists. Paul, Joda B., and Allan are all men of honor and I wish them and their families the very best on this holiday. Their question is “Who and what would you give out on this holiday?”

 

 

Simple questions are sometime the toughest to answer. I honestly want to hear your answers to these questions. I very rarely open this site up to open ended comments but I am able to do this so easily because I know and trust that you all will treat every opinion with honor and respect just like we treat our neighbors as friends. We are all friends here and we will all be friends even when we agree to disagree.

 

Wishing you all the best and peace in your lives. photo from yahoo.

I wish everyone a very happy and blessed holiday, no matter how you define it.

 

Until next time, keep on rockin.

College Football Semi-Final…

Hey Y’all,

 

We are at the end of the college football regular season and heading straight into the bowls. I know for many of you this event ranks just below a baseball bat to the face. I know this has been a painful run of boring posts about a topic that only knuckle dragging, booger eaters named Bubba care about. You will be glad to know that this will be the last post and starting next week, we will return to regularly scheduled programing of war stories, veteran interviews, writing updates, and other less low brow topics. Hey Josh over at the McGill Review, I am planning on getting back to cranking out some new material for you as well. So for all my leaf eating friends, hang on and breathe easy, a new season is approaching.

 

I was a fool. photo from yahoo.

To all of my college football fanatics, I think that we all can agree that life is good. I hope your team found its way into the college playoff because mine did not. But did anyone besides me think that the Arkansas State Red Wolves really had a chance? Looking back at my picks I would like to take a moment to publically flog myself for being a dummy. I believed the hype machine of ESPN when they touted Oklahoma and UCLA as championship material. Yes, I had both of them going to the playoff and they are both lucky to be going to a bowl. That is what I get for listening to people who are slightly more informed than I am.

 

I hear that this guy is really cool. Maybe I should start hanging out with him? I can be a Belieber. photo from yahoo.

I picked Ole Miss to make the playoff and if not for a single disastrous play where their best player was illegally tackled and held up so that he could receive a flagrant helmet to helmet hit causing him to break his leg and drop the football at the one foot line. I really think that if Ole Miss had beaten Auburn, they would have found a way to beat LSU. The Arkansas game was a result of the hangover from the previous two weeks and we saw what they did to Mississippi State when they were motivated. So I will not back pedal on that pick.

 

I did pick Oregon and they held up their end of the bargain. I know that Alabama was the pick that everyone had to begin the season and I didn’t want to be a bandwagon fan. They should have lost to Arkansas and LSU. But they ran the table the final three weeks and they deserve to be in the playoff. Florida State kept us all tuned into the game as they made three or four plays more than every other opponent. They can thank the referee for helping them win against Notre Dame but they did what they had to do. They swept the table clean with no blemishes and they deserve to be in the playoff.

That brings us to Ohio State. Before I go there, I should mention the WWE. That’s right, the wrestler network. When the good guy gets a bad deal from “The Authority”, the catch phrase used to justify the travesty is to simply say that it is “good for business.” The college football selection committee is allegedly comprised of non-partisan members who in theory intend to represent the highest ideals and ensure the true best four teams make the playoff. Like a newborn baby, I bought into that theory hook, line and sinker. I actually believed that they would do the right thing and pick the four best teams. To me, they followed that theory until the only poll that mattered and that is the last one. The system is rigged, there I said it. It will only be four teams from the power conferences and they followed through with the mandate. Every year moving forward, look for the playoff to have the conference champion from the SEC, Big 10 and the Pac 10. The forth team will be from the ACC or the Big 12. Never will there be a team from a non-power conference. And never will there be two teams from the ACC or Big 12 conference. Those two conferences, including Notre Dame, Texas, Oklahoma and Florida State are all playing for one spot.

 

The committee admitted as much when they vaulted Ohio State into the playoff because of one victory in the Big 10 championship game. TCU and Baylor are better teams and both teams were ranked in the top four for most of the season, but magically they dropped because Ohio State won a game with a 3rd string quarterback. The Big 12 didn’t help itself when they refused to crown a conference champion. I know that publically, the conference is bickering but I think they didn’t choose a champion to force the hand of the committee and make them to pick one or both between TCU and Baylor. But when Ohio State won and won big, the committee had a reason to justify taking a Big 10 team and leaving the Big 12 shut out. I think there will be some major re-alignment over this. I expect that Florida State, Notre Dame, Texas and Oklahoma will all be moving to a new conference. They are the only major schools not in a major conference and I think that they can read the writing on the wall. Move or risk being shut out from the big boy party. The bidding starts at 100 million dollars, so much for the idea that amateur athletics are for amateurs because it is “what’s good for business!”

Alabama vs Ohio State. On paper, Alabama has every edge and yes they should rout Ohio State. The Buckeyes are a year or two ahead of schedule and shouldn’t even be in the playoff this year. But I really have a feeling that Coach Urban Meyer is one of the few coaches that can match schemes with Coach Saban. This game will be much closer than you expect. Alabama 31 Ohio State 34.

Oregon vs Florida State. The two best quarterbacks in the country will square off and this will be a track meet. FSU has the better defense, the better running game and the proven coach. Oregon has the better person who plays quarterback and the better booster. The Nike guy verses Bert Reynolds. I think that this will be as fun of a football game as anyone has ever seen. Oregon 58 FSU 61.

Breaking News…

My beloved Arkansas State Red Wolves are going bowling again. My sources in Jonesboro, Arkansas are telling me that the Red Wolves will be playing in the Go-Daddy Bowl on January 4th, 2015. The Red Wolves are 2-1 in the previous three trips and this will mark the 4th straight trip to the Go-Daddy Bowl, but the first ever with a returning Head Coach.

 

To make things better, all sources are indicating that the current Blake Anderson will not be leaving for another coaching position. Unlike Hugh Freeze (just signed a 4 million dollar extension at Ole Miss), Gus Malzahn (Auburn), and Brian Harsin (Boise State). Coach Anderson is going to hang around for a second trip on the merry-go-round.

 

But things like this are all on the players. Just to put this streak into prospective, the 18 redshirted seniors on the football team have played for five head coaches, four bowls and went 39-23 in the last five years. Their freshmen year, these eighteen players were 4-8 and since then they were 35-15.

 

The official announcement may not come out for another day or two. Until then, keep on rockin.

College Football Week 14…

Hey Y’all,

 

Hope you all are recovering from the turkey induced coma. Well if you think it is the tryptophan, you are wrong. I found this on the internet, so it must be true. And yes, I am a French model. http://www.ajc.com/news/lifestyles/health/tryptophan-isnt-making-you-sleepy-thanksgiving/njHCg/

And yes that has nothing to do with college football, so here we go. A couple of big games this weekend and they all will be played down south. The rest of the stage is set for the college football playoff, as long as no one loses. This is my ranking Top Ten non SEC-programs that have a chance to make the playoff. This is not my top ten college football schools. It is the top ten teams that have the best chance to get into the playoff system.

  1. Florida State- They take on Florida in Will Muschamp’s last game as a big time football head coach. Things could get very interesting on Saturday afternoon for the Seminole Nation. FSU should roll in this game, but they should have rolled everyone on their schedule. FSU 31 Florida 3.

This seems to be going around. Photo from yahoo.

2. Oregon – They take on Oregon State this week in the annual rivalry game. Things can always go wrong in this type of game. But not this year because the Quack Attack is dialed in. Oregon 53 OSU 31.

turkey 6

I dont get it, but I am sure someone does. Photo from yahoo.

3. TCU- They moved up against the best opponent out there, the BYE WEEK. And last night they smoked Texas 48-10. All the predictions have Baylor ahead of them in the rankings. Too bad the Big 12 doesn’t have a championship game.

This about sums it all up. Photo from yahoo.

This about sums it all up. Photo from yahoo.

 

There you have it. FSU, TCU, and Oregon will be in the playoffs. This is my final answer.

Arizona State (OUT)

Michigan State (OUT)

Ohio State- (Not totally out, still have a heart beat although very faint.)

Notre Dame-(OUT)

CLEMSON (OUT)

USC (OUT)

UCLA (OUT)

ARIZONA (OUT)

BAYLOR (OUT)

OKLAHOMA (OUT)

 

In my heart, I love the underdog. This is the only team from the non-Power 5 that could make the playoff.

 

  1. Marshall- They got the best shot that UAB could muster and escaped with a win. For some reason, that gets Florida State into the college playoff while it gets Marshall only a 24 rank and they voters put Boise State ahead of Marshall in the Top-25. Don’t be afraid Herd fans, Boise State plays Utah State this weekend and I think they give you some help. Marshall 48 Western Kentucky 10.

 

BYU (OUT)

Utah State (OUT)

Colorado State(OUT)

Arkansas State (OUT)

 

The SEC is where all the action is for most college football fans. The first poll had the SEC with three teams in the top four for the playoff. This week, they still have two. The final poll will have them down to one and there is still a very real possibility that they have no teams in the playoff.

Auburn at Alabama. The media is drooling all over themselves now that Bama is back. They are the best, blah, blah, blah. They got very lucky at LSU and smoked Mississippi State at home. Now they get a beat down Auburn team at home. Look for the upset and some very unhappy Bama fans. Auburn 41 Alabama 18.

 

I had no idea that Alabama and Auburn fan were related. photo from yahoo.

Ole Miss lost last week in the game they can’t afford to lose and they looked really bad in the process. Now they have Mississippi State at home. It is amazing how things fell apart for the Rebels after their star receiver was illegally tackled and then immorally hit with a helmet to helmet shot causing him to drop the football at the one foot line on the next to last play of the game against Auburn. On that single play, Ole Miss lost their best player, the ball game, and a chance for a national championship. But the good news is that the SEC officiating committee didn’t see fit to comment. Ole Miss 13 Mississippi State 41.

Normally, I don’t go deep into the SEC but the perfect storm is still out there. If Alabama loses and Mississippi State wins, then State goes to the SEC championship with a single loss. I think Arkansas will beat Missouri today and Georgia will lose to Georgia Tech but Georgia will still win the SEC East and play Mississippi State in the SEC Championship. If Georgia wins the Championship then the SEC Champion will have three losses and the best team from the SEC West will have two. If that happens, look for Ohio State to sneak into the playoff.

 

Over the course of the turkey day sloth fest with my family yesterday, we talked college football among other non-controversial topics like; Was Jesus a Democrat or a Republican? We played some great games like; Who has the biggest prostrate and who can is the loudest snorer? All good fun that left everyone shamed, angry and bitter. Nothing says Thanksgiving like a pouting Uncle sitting on the couch after getting his butt spanked at charades.

 

Anyway, the conversation turned to College Football and the future coaches for Michigan and Florida. I am making my picks now, so you can all agree that I do have a crystal ball. The next head coach at Michigan will be Brett Bielema of Arkansas and the next head coach at Florida will be Bobby Petrnio of Louisville. I know those are out of the box predictions and my family says I am crazy which is exactly why I will be right. For all the teams not named Florida and Michigan, enjoy the final weekend of security because you think your head football coach is secured in place with an iron clad contract.

College Football Week 13…

 

football 4

 

Hey Y’all,

 

Light week in the race to be in the playoff. No one really has a big game this week so don’t expect any change in the rankings after the weekend. But Thanksgiving weekend, will have a couple of big games that will shape the playoff.

 

This is my ranking Top Ten non SEC-programs that have a chance to make the playoff. This is not my top ten college football schools. It is the top ten teams that have the best chance to get into the playoff system.

  1. Florida State- They take on Boston College. Get out your permanent markers and write their name on the line.
  2. Oregon – They take on Colorado this week. You can put them in as well. Unless they lose in the PAC-10 Championship.
  3. TCU- Closer game than it should have been against Kansas. No worries. They are off this week and should move up thanks to the bye week.

 

There you have it. FSU, TCU, and Oregon will be in the playoffs. This is my final answer.

Arizona State (OUT)

Michigan State/Ohio State- (OUT)

Notre Dame-(OUT)

CLEMSON (OUT)

USC (OUT)

UCLA (OUT)

ARIZONA (OUT)

BAYLOR (OUT)

OKLAHOMA (OUT)

 

In my heart, I love the underdog. This is the only team from the non-Power 5 that could make the playoff.

 

4. Marshall- Smoked Rice and will smoke University of Alabama-Birmingham. They should be in the top 15, but there is a very strong bias against them by the voters.

 

BYU (OUT)

Utah State (OUT)

Colorado State(OUT)

Arkansas State (OUT)

 

The SEC is where all the action is for most college football fans. The first poll had the SEC with three teams in the top four for the playoff. This week, they still have two. The final poll will have them down to one and there is still a very real possibility that they have no teams in the playoff.

 

Auburn is still OUT for now. Georgia put it on Auburn last week. Auburn will look to get well against Samford. Next week will be big.

Alabama. They took care of business against Mississippi State and will coast against Western Carolina. The SEC needs them to win next week. We will see.

Ole Miss has a very dangerous game against Arkansas this week. The Rebels cannot afford to lose. Ole Miss 17 Arkansas 13.

  1. Mississippi State (29 Nov@ Ole Miss)
  2. Alabama (29 Nov Auburn)
  3. Georgia
  4. Ole Miss (21@ Arkansas, 29 Nov Miss State)
  5. Auburn (29 Nov@ Alabama)

 

Not many games this week that excite the senses. Enjoy the weekend putting up Christmas Lights.

College Football Week 12…

There is a chance this happens again. There is also a chance that FSU gets probation for all of the cover-ups and that the National Championship is vacated. Photo from Yahoo.

 

 

Hey Y’all,

 

It has been a busy week here in my little corner of the world but how can I let that stop College Football now that we are in the home stretch? For some of you, there are only three more weeks of the mind numbingly boring sport. For folks like me, how can there be only three weeks left? I am just getting warmed up with the sub-freezing temperature outside. It is late, so here we go.

 

This is my ranking Top Ten non SEC-programs that have a chance to make the playoff. This is not my top ten college football schools. It is the top ten teams that have the best chance to get into the playoff system.

  1. Florida State- Another week, another player in trouble with the law. If my son turns out to be a criminal, guess where I will send him to play football? His problem is that he is a future saint, he wouldn’t fit in there. Eggs over Miami is up this week. FSU likes their eggs scrambled. FSU 34 Miami 24
  2. Oregon – Utah gave them a great shot in the mouth, until the receiver dropped the football on the one foot line and Oregon returned it 99 ¾ yards for a touchdown. Fourteen point swings and the loss of momentum are hard to overcome. Oregon is off this week and will move up in the polls.
  3. TCU- They will be in the playoffs and will smoke Kansas 69-0.
  4. Arizona State-I am not a believer but they might beat Oregon in the Pac -10 Championship. Then again, they might lose to Oregon State. ASU 24 OSU 34.
  5. Michigan State/Ohio State- (OUT) Triple Yawn. Missed the final score because I was cutting my toe nails. But OSU did college football a favor and beat Michigan State. Both teams are out.
  6. Notre Dame-(OUT) They still had a shot until the second pick six. Hope the Irish like the Sun Bowl.

There you have it. FSU, TCU, and Oregon will be in the playoffs. This is my final answer.

 

CLEMSON (OUT)

USC (OUT)

UCLA (OUT)

ARIZONA (OUT)

BAYLOR (OUT)

OKLAHOMA (OUT)

 

In my heart, I love the underdog. This is the only team from the non-Power 5 that could make the playoff.

7. Marshall- Marshall spotted Southern Mississippi 14 points and then scored the next 49. Rice is the next victim. I am now predicting that Marshall will be in the Peach Bowl against either Ohio State or Notre Dame.

 

BYU (OUT)

Utah State (OUT)

Colorado State(OUT)

Arkansas State (OUT)

 

The SEC is where all the action is for most college football fans. The first poll had the SEC with three teams in the top four for the playoff. This week, they still at two. The final poll will have them down to one and there is still a very real possibility that they have no teams in the playoff.

 

Auburn is OUT for now. I never thought they would struggle against Texas AM, but that is why I don’t put money on what a 18 year old football player will do week to week. They take on Georgia who has their Heisman caliber running back, back. It is a must win for Georgia because they still have a chance at the SEC Championship and must win for Auburn to keep from playing in the Independence Bowl. Auburn 42 Georgia 45.

Mississippi State at Alabama. I thought Bama would lose to LSU and if not for some late game blunders by the Tigers, they would have. They must win this week and I think they will. Bama 37 MSU 24.

Ole Miss is off this week and will creep back up in the rankings. They will be back in the top 5 for the game of the century in Mississippi at the end of the month.

 

  1. Mississippi State (15 Nov@ Alabama, 29 Nov@ Ole Miss)
  2. Alabama (15 Nov Miss St, 29 Nov Auburn)
  3. Georgia (15 Nov-Auburn)
  4. Ole Miss (21@ Arkansas, 29 Nov Miss State)
  5. Auburn (15 Nov @ UGA, 29 Nov@ Alabama)

 

I post this mini-schedule to illustrate a single point. It is very possible that every team in the SEC has two losses by the end of November. The nightmare for the SEC is that all the Western Conference teams have two losses on 30 Nov. Don’t be surprised if Auburn wins at UGA and Bama and if Mississippi State loses to both Bama and Ole Miss. Who would make the Championship and play Georgia in the SEC Championship? What if Georgia wins the SEC Championship? If Florida State, Oregon, TCU and Marshall all finish the season winning out. Could an undefeated Marshall take a playoff spot from three loss SEC team and leave the SEC at home watching the playoff?

 

Until next time, keep on rockin.

Happy Veteran’s Day…

Hey Y’all,

 

Short article today and no pictures. It is Veteran’s Day and I hope that you all will find a way to celebrate the holiday. If you know a Vet, tell them thanks. If you really want to say thanks, buy their dinner this week. By the way, if you are looking for a nice place to have a quiet meal for Veteran’s Day. Stay at home. The trend of restaurants offering free meals to Veterans is rapidly growing and you will not be able to swing a dead cat without hitting a Vet looking for a free meal tonight.

 

If you are out tomorrow night and the knucklehead next to you is gripping about the wait because every place a step up from a fast food chain has a two hour waiting list. When you can’t stand it any longer because you just wanted to take the restaurant community up on their offer of free meals, but the whiney baby wont stop complaining all the old people in line. Here is a suggestion, give them the link to this post and challenge them to read these articles. Hopefully, you will be able to relax, get another flaming volcano ordered and hope they don’t run out of Blooming Onions.

 

Until next time, keep on rockin,
