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…

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,

College Football Week 11…

 

football 4

 

Hey Y’all,

 

What a weekend in college football. It is tough to say anything positive about the loss that Ole Miss had. They were one foot from defeating Auburn, but a horse collar tackle followed by a helmet to helmet hit that lead to a broken leg, a fumble at the 1 foot line, losing their best receiver for the year and dropping out of the race for the playoff. Talking about a hard pill to swallow, but it really came down to their quarterback fumbling at the five yard line on the previous series. He made a really bad decision, almost as bad as the decision to throw the ball up for grabs the week prior at LSU. It is easy to be upset at the no-call, blatant, penalties on the final play but Ole Miss fan should really be upset at their quarterback.

Leading with the helmet is still illegal. This came after the fumble and would not have reversed the play on the field. But it was the highlight of the night that none of the esteemed commentators could bring themselves to say this is illegal. Just think how upset I would be if I liked Ole Miss. Photo from yahoo.

 

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 escaped a trap game and after falling behind 21-0. They went on a 41-10 run to make the game a mismatch. Virginia is up this week and look for the Noles to continue winning as long as they can keep their quarterback and running back on the right side of the jail.
  2. Notre Dame-I said that it will be closer than you expect and it was. This week the Irish go on the road to Arizona State. This will not be as close and the Irish will continue to win. One thing bothers me, the talking heads on ESPN keep talking about strength of schedule and they point to Notre Dame’s schedule as lacking primer opponents but their schedule is much tougher than Florida State, Oregon and TCU. I still think they will climb into the top four if they win out.
  3. Oregon – They beat Stanford pretty good. Now they travel to Utah. I don’t know much about Utah and I am tempted to say that the Ducks will roll. But I am not so sure. If you’re up late on the east coast, this should be worth watching.
  4. TCU- TCU escaped WVU and now they face an over-rated Kansas State team. I think that TCU will win out and make the playoffs but they shouldn’t. They are just not that good. TCU 67 Kansas State 37.
  5. Michigan State/Ohio State- Triple Yawn. I guess we have to act like this game matters. Winner gets all the love from ESPN but ultimately will be left out of the playoff and get Marshall in the Peach Bowl. If one of these teams had Madison Bumgarner, I would be interested. Look for a baseball score fest MSU 5 OSU 3.

 

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- Brett Farve has big plans to mow his grass this week while Southern Mississippi hosts Marshall. I am now predicting that Marshall will be in the Peach Bowl against Michigan State.

 

BYU (OUT)

Utah State (OUT)

Colorado State(OUT)

Arkansas State (OUT)

 

The SEC is where all the action is for most college football fans. Last week the SEC got the warm fuzzy of having three teams in the top four for the playoff. This week, they are down to two. The final poll will have them down to one.

 

Auburn hosts Texas A&M. It shouldn’t be much of a game, because A&M is Bowl eligible. They are going into the game expecting to lose with a true Freshman Quarterback that struggled against Louisiana-Monroe.

Georgia at Kentucky. I thought Georgia would roll over Florida 72-0. They got rolled instead. I would think that Kentucky would be an easy game but they gave Mississippi State everything they wanted two weeks ago. This is a must win for Georgia if they want to have the outside chance to make the playoffs. UGA 33 UK 30.

Mississippi State hosting UT Martin and Ole Miss hosting Presbyterian. These are get well games for both teams. Big wins across the board.

 

Alabama at LSU. This is an elimination game. The winner will start to come back into the conversation and the loser is out. This will be an old school, smash mouth football game. Can Lane Kiffen coach in this type of game? I think not. Bama 14 LSU 24.

 

  1. Mississippi State (15 Nov@ Alabama, 29 Nov@ Ole Miss)
  2. Georgia (15 Nov-Auburn)
  3. Ole Miss (15@ Arkansas, 29 Nov Miss State)
  4. Auburn (15 Nov @ UGA, 29 Nov@ Alabama)
  5. Alabama (8 Nov@ LSU, 15 Nov Miss St, 29 Nov Auburn)
  6. LSU (8 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. It is very possible that LSU would win the tie breaker and would play Georgia in the SEC Championship. LSU wins the game while Florida State, Notre Dame, Oregon, TCU or Kansas State, and Michigan State all finish the season winning out. Could a two loss LSU take a playoff spot from a higher ranked and one loss Big 12 or Big 10 team and leave the SEC at home watching the playoff?

This was taken in the summer of 2003 in Al Udied. I think it was before one of KK’s weekly updates on when we might be going home. I am in the center with my arm on Julio’s knee. Bobby is to the left with the red shirt. Carlos is to the right of Julio. By the way, the temperature when this was taken was well over 120 degrees. It doesnt look that bad, does it?

Hey Y’all,

 

Going to try to do two articles this week, tall order but I do miss the war stories. It may be hard to tell from the outside but the college football series has been getting a lot of traffic over here. Seems that people love their football and I want to take a moment to welcome all the new folks. For the past couple of years, I have been writing an on-going series documenting 2003-2006, when I was flying for the military over in Iraq. This series is for all of us but specifically it will be for my kids to know who dad was before they were born. They love me to tell them stories of when I was a kid and one day I hope they will appreciate this series. But until then, it is a good way to take the trip down memory lane.

 

When we last left off, it was February 2004. Saddam had been captured and the Insurgency was in full effect. From the kick off to the war until late summer 2003, I can count on one hand the number of times we were shot at by a missile or small arms fire. The fall of 2003, the incidents were rapidly increasing and going back in February, it had turned into a no joke shooting match. Making three or four trips into Iraq within a single day, we could expect to be shot at least one or twice for each take-off or landing. But the “Insurgents” were getting better at their tactics and using the proper weapons to make things more difficult. I would like to fully explain what they were doing, but some of it would be considered secret because it would get into our tactics and missile defense system. Let’s just say that it was no joke and leave the hand gestures and back patting to the fighter pilots.

I don’t know if all pilots are like me or if I am special. I did lick the windows on the short bus when I was in elementary school, but I am sure that has no bearing on my current intelligence capabilities. Anyway, for me flying is a perishable skill. If I take a few weeks off from work for vacation, it takes a few flights to figure everything out so that I feel comfortable again. We were doing 60 day rotations during this period so we left in early December and when we came back in February, I felt like a monkey trying to make love to a football. Sometimes it is just tough to watch. Since the attacks had dramatically increased, I wanted to accelerate my warm-up period for both myself and my co-pilot, Carlos. We did some type of tactical arrival and departure at every airport, even if they were not in the combat zone. We both felt that we would rather mess it up at Kuwait City International as opposed to messing it up in Baghdad. I am sure I don’t have to mention, that it was also fun.

 

tabuk 022

There was a time when I knew what all those switches did. Photo from my collection (I think Billy Grimes took it).

 

One of our first flights was to Basrah. Located in southern Iraq, it was controlled by the British and while nowhere was really safe, it was as safe as anywhere not named Fallujah. Carlos must have done the landing because I did the take-off. I still felt like that monkey and a football but it must have looked ok because about twenty miles away from the field, we were still at about 75 feet above the ground and 300 knots. Richie, the Flight Engineer finally broke the silence on the intercom when he said that I looked like I was feeling the love again. Anytime, a seasoned flight engineer gives out a compliment, it is special and I was always happy to have Rich on the crew. I started to agree, when we crossed the major road going from Basrah to Kuwait City. I don’t know the official name of the road, but it was called the highway of death in the first Gulf War. We crossed it at a 90 degree angle, and it was packed with Army Trucks, Humvees, tractor-trailers, and all kids of other vehicles heading north. The convoy went from horizon to horizon, since we were so low we couldn’t see either end. They were rolling and the guys that we flew over all were waving. We waved back.

75 feet is low, and it wasn’t hard to see expressions on their face. It was a marvelous sight. After we passed them, Bobby the Navigator quipped. “Hope they were on our side.” You can imagine the howls of laughter and sarcastic comments that followed. In many ways it became the punchline of the rotation. Passing an airplane in the air, “Hope they are on our side.” Driving past the security guard at the front gate, “Hope he is on our side.” Getting a grilled cheese sandwich at the chow hall, “Hope the cook is on our side.” It was one of the gifts that kept giving.

 

Until next time, keep on rockin.

College Football…Week 10…

I am captivated by this photo. It just makes me laugh for some reason. Photo from yahoo.

 

Hey Y’all,

 

Hope you all enjoyed a week of relative calm in College Football. There were big games but all except The LSU-Ole Miss turned out ok for the teams on our list. This week, there are some huge football games, especially down south where the SEC will continue to chew its self-up until there may not be anyone left standing. Shall we get to the madness?

 

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- On paper FSU should coast to a win against Louisville. This isn’t paper and Louisville will give the Noles everything they want and more. The Cardinals have a running back from way back, Michael Dyer. The last time we saw him on a national stage was at Auburn running wild in the SEC as a Freshman three years ago. He got into some trouble at Auburn and followed Gus Malzahn to Arkansas State but he didn’t get on the field before another misunderstanding left him out of football. Y’all he is back, he ran for 173 yards against NC State. Louisville has offensive mastermind Bobby Petrino, minus the motorcycle and the intern, directing the offense and the number one defense in football. They play on Thursday night, in this week’s game of the century. IIU 31 FSU 17.
  2. Notre Dame-One the road verses Navy. It will be closer than you expect. ND 37 Navy 30.
  3. Oregon – Hosting Stanford. This is a game that traditionally gives them trouble. Look for the Ducks to struggle but pull away in the 4th quarter. Oregon 47 Stanford 40.
  4. TCU- They hung something like 17,000 points on Texas Tech. Actually, I think they just scored again. West Virginia is hosting College Game Day for the mid-afternoon game. It will be cold, windy and a chance for flurries. The moonshine will be flowing, the whiskey bottles will be flying and couches will be burning. All before halftime but it won’t matter. TCU will win a fun game. TCU 63 WVU 62.
  5. Michigan State/Ohio State- Triple Yawn. I could honestly care less about either team. Next week they will finally play and then we can act like it matters.

 

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- I was wrong last week, Florida-Atlantic came to play and held tough with the Herd until late. Good for them. Five years ago, a Herd-Golden Eagle game could have been a great game. But now, Southern Mississippi is so far off the radar, Brett Farve is not even paying attention. I am still looking for Marshall in the Cotton Bowl against TCU.

 

BYU (OUT)

Utah State (OUT)

Colorado State(OUT)

Arkansas State (OUT)

 

The SEC is where all the action is for most college football fans. This week the SEC got the warm fuzzy of having three teams in the top four for the playoff. We all know that won’t last but it is fun to see.

 

Ole Miss vs Auburn. I don’t know who to pick in this one. It means more to Ole Miss because they lost last week to LSU, they are at home and they are one more loss from returning to the SEC cellar. Auburn has a loss to Mississippi State and they are in the same boat. The loser should be on the outside looking in. It will be fun to watch. I predict Ole Miss 67 Auburn 60, after seven OT. It will be a real game of the century.

 

Georgia will roll over Florida 72-0.

Mississippi State hosting Arkansas. This should be an easy game but the pigs have been a tough out for everyone. This one will be no different. A couple weeks ago, I said that the pigs were going to win a game somewhere along the line and this might be it. MSU 21 PIGS 17.

 

Alabama and LSU are off this week. It is time to start thinking about the future for the SEC. Here are the remaining top games for the SEC teams that still have a chance and my predictive chance for the playoff.

 

  1. Mississippi State (15 Nov@ Alabama, 29 Nov@ Ole Miss)
  2. Georgia ( 15 Nov-Auburn)
  3. Ole Miss (1 Nov Auburn, 15@ Arkansas, 29 Nov Miss State)
  4. Auburn (1 Nov@ Ole Miss, 15 Nov @ UGA, 29 Nov@ Alabama)
  5. Alabama (8 Nov@ LSU, 15 Nov Miss St, 29 Nov Auburn)
  6. LSU (8 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. It is very possible that LSU would win the tie breaker and would play Georgia in the SEC Championship. LSU wins the game while Florida State, Notre Dame, Oregon, TCU or Kansas State, and Michigan State all finish the season winning out. Could a two loss LSU take a playoff spot from a higher ranked and one loss Big 12 or Big 10 team and leave the SEC at home watching the playoff?

Sounds like fun.

 

College Football Week 9…

Hey Y’all,

 

How can it be week nine already? Didn’t we just start this journey a few days ago? I guess not since the calendar says it is week nine. A fantastic game last week between FSU and Notre Dame. I hope we have a couple of games that match the intensity and drama of last week. I will give you a maybe on that. By the way, I predicted 34-30 an Notre Dame win, had the last second score been allowed it would have been 34-30. I will stop patting myself on the back later. Ha ha.

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- The mantra of a tournament is to survive and move on. The Noles are doing what they need to do and with an off week, they will look to move back into the top spot.
  2. Baylor-(OUT) Last week, I wrote this: “Baylor should win, but something tells me that WV will win 48-45.” I was wrong, WV won going away and putting Baylor and the Big 12 out of the playoff race. Sorry TCU, your hopes went away with Baylor.
  3. TCU- TCU won big and is probably out. Texas Tech isn’t a good enough team to move the needle back to their favor. Look for them to make the Cotton Bowl and play Marshall.
  4. Notre Dame-Last week, I wrote this. “Someone will get a big win tonight.” I was wrong because both teams won big. With the loss and taking the National Champions to the limit, look for Notre Dame to run the table and get a rematch against FSU. The Irish will take the week off before starting a string of road games to finish the season.
  5. Oklahoma-(OUT) I am glad I can put the sooners off the list. How tough is it to win a weak Big 12? Tougher than it looks. Expect the Sooners to play Alabama in the Disappointment Bowl.
  6. Oregon- Right now, they are having a tough go with Cal. It is tough to keep backing the Ducks only to have them continue to disappoint. Should they falter, pencil in the winner of Michigan State/Ohio State into the playoffs.
  7. Michigan State/Ohio State- Until they play each other, we will just expect these two teams to keep rolling a conference that is weaker than the Sun Belt.

 

CLEMSON (OUT)

USC (OUT)

UCLA (OUT) ARIZONA (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- The bully beat down of really bad Florida teams continues as Marshall hosts Florida Atlantic. Too bad they don’t get to play the Gators. You can start to pencil Marshall in the Cotton Bowl.

 

BYU (OUT)

Utah State (OUT)

Colorado State(OUT)

Arkansas State (OUT)

 

 

I can’t resist looking at the SEC this week as it is showdown Saturday in the conference that most everyone thinks is the best ion football.

Ole Miss goes on the road to Death Valley. This is a true test for the Rebels, maybe more of a test than Alabama was at home for them. Ole Miss 34-LSU 10.

Mississippi State was off last week and might as well be off this week going up to Lexington to play Kentucky. The baddest team in the land will reign supreme. 63-3.

Auburn was also off last week and hosts South Carolina. The Tigers should win 63-3 setting up next week’s version of the game of the century against Ole Miss.

Alabama plays at Tennessee. The charade will continue for Bama but not for much longer. Bama 55-10.

I can’t get enough of this picture. Photo from Yahoo.

 

Georgia will take the week off before playing major disappointment Florida.

 

No changes for the Top 4.

  1. Ole Miss
  2. Auburn
  3. Mississippi State
  4. Georgia

 

 

I thought that the PAC 12 would get two teams in the playoff not possible any longer. The door is wide open for Notre Dame, but they have to win out. The SEC is looking for two teams and the Big Ten will get a team if MSU or OSU can win out and Notre Dame/Oregon stumbles. I don’t think the committee wants an all-SEC Championship Game.

SEC Champion Ole Miss Rebels will play Number four Mississippi State. Ole Miss wins.

SEC runner up Florida State will play Notre Dame. Notre Dame wins.

Ole Miss will defeat Notre Dame 45-10 and win the National Championship.
