NCAAF Top 25 Update, Recap and Perspectives, Saturday, 9-14-19:

NCAAF Top 25 Update:
  • Joe the Tiger is looking more and more like Tom the Patriot with every passing week. #Tigers #Demons
  • Powerful, well-coached OU draws first blood … and then some … with its Hurts to Lamb and Rambo combos. The UCLA football program is in complete shambles … nothing less than a total joke/disgrace. Thanks for absolutely nothing chubby Chip; your QB hasn’t a semblance of a clue, your offensive “schemes” are non-existent, and the defense is a farce. In all fairness, refunds are in order for the fans who had to sit through this butt kicking in person. #Sooners #Bruins
  • One of the orange teams on the field at the Carrier Dome looked like a real lemon … and it wasn’t Clemson. #Tigers #Orange
  • A&M looks to Lamar for a very tasty cupcake day at College Station. #Cardinals #Aggies
  • Texas takes its frustrations out by boiling Rice, after getting hornswaggled the week before by the Bayou Bengals. #Longhorns #Owls
  • UVa’s actually tied atop the ACC at 2-0; what does this say about the ACC? Not much… #Seminoles #Cavaliers
  • Iowa takes aim at Iowa St., goes into Ames and wrestles the Cy-Hawk trophy away from the ‘Clones. #Hawkeyes #Cyclones
  • Party time in Provo as the true blue believers at BYU spoil an evening out for the University of Spoiled Children. #Trojans #Cougars
  • Notre Dame throws the Book at Los Lobos, and it’s more than the visitors can handle in one sitting. #FightingIrish #Lobos
  • Sun Devils indulge themselves at East Lansing, at the expense of sputtering Spartans. No, the offense was not really working today with Leuwenwerk at the helm. #SunDevils #Spartans
  • Stanford travels to the land of Disney World and leaves in a world of hurt. Their offense definitely lacks sizzle, and the Knights continue to remind the world that they’re a power team, notwithstanding their non-power conference. #Cardinal #Knights
  • Pitt clanks a field goal instead of manning up and going for a game tying score. With 5 min left / down by 7 is this really going for the win? Naruduzzi does his best to rationalize, but the fact is, against PSU you can never show uncertainty, doubt or weakness … particularly that close to a game tying score. #Panthers #NittanyLions
  • Turtles’ shell game comes to an abrupt end in Philadelphia, as Owls prove yet again to be highly competitive fowl. #Terrapins #Owls
  • The Ohio State University rudely invades Bloomington and makes things pretty gloomy for the outclassed Hoosiers. #Buckeyes #Hoosiers
  • Dawgs send the Wolves a nasty love letter from Fromm, and the rest is cupcake history. #RedWolves #Bulldogs
  • Crimson Tide takes it Tua the Gamecocks, and that’s not something South Carolina cared for too much. #CrimsonTide #Gamecocks

NCAAF Top 25 Update, Recap and Perspectives, Saturday, 9-7-19:

NCAAF Top 25 Update:
  • Hair pulling time for Harbaugh? Michigan stumbles its way to a less than impressive win over grounded Army. With their low octane offense continuing to depress, it’s very hard to see how the Maize and Blue stay in the Top 10. #Wolverines #BlackKnights
  • Texas clearly had no clue regarding how to hold them Tigers; incredibly, LSU’s passing attack is now the bomb, and tonight Burrow had his coming out party. This guy is a definite pro prospect … looking poised in the pocket, making numerous accurate passes on the run, and with all the physical attributes. This season may indeed be a real beaut in Baton Rouge. #Tigers #Longhorns
  • By the time the 2nd half rolled around tonight, the Bulls from Buff cleary had had enough of the Lions. #Bulls #Lions
  • For GA it was off to the races against the poor Racers. #Bulldogs #Racers
  • Badgers get their paws on sacrificial lamb Chippewas, and it’s a pretty gory mauling. #Chippewas #Badgers
  • Nebraska definitely acquitted itself well for most of this game, until it’s defense turned into 4th quarter nebbishes in a painful loss to Colorado. #Cornhuskers #Buffaloes
  • Bearcats run out of scare tactics from the opening gun at OSU on cupcake day at The Big Horseshoe. #Bearcats #Buckeyes
  • Terps are definitely locked and loaded under new coach Locklsey; Syracuse flunks out of College Park, getting clobbered by 6 TDs+. #Orange #Terrapins
  • Now this is the Rutgers we all know and love … laying a big goose egg in the nest of the Hawkeyes. #Scarlet Knights #Hawkeyes
  • It was in the bag after the first half for Clemson against the Aggies … whose offense was clearly dragging. #Aggies #Tigers

NCCAAF Top 25 Update, Recap and Perspectives, Saturday, 8-31-19:

NCCAAF Top 25 Update:

  • GA State sucks the volume right out of the big stadium in Knoxville with a shocker of an upset over struggling Tennessee. If this is a precursor of things to come this year, there definitely may be a shortage of Volunteers. #Panthers #Volunteers
  • Syracuse enslaves Liberty, dousing the Flames at home with a 24 point shutout victory. #Orange #Flames
  • Alabama’s Tigers waited 3 quarter to emerge from their scoring coma, but when they needed it most Freshman Nix was indeed their offensive fix. #Oregon #Auburn
  • Huskers stagger through a rather ugly 1st game win over South Alabama; they had better ramp up their act as this is not necessarily good preparation for life in the Big 10. #Jaguars #Cornhuskers
  • Franks had just enough mustard on the ball to lead Gators to an inspiring home win over Hurricanes. #Hurricanes #Gators
  • Golden Hurricanes reduced to a tropical depression in East Lansing. #GoldenHurricanes #Spartans
  • Mond, Kellen Mond, is his name, and killing Bobcats is his game; Aggies and their QB look great in manhandling Texas State. #Aggies #Bobcats
  • Utes use a strong defense and running game to pound BYU in Provo. #Utes #Cougars
  • Iowa State has a few heart palpitations en route to a close shave victory over baby brother Northern Iowa. #Panthers #Cyclones
  • Big bad Badgers trample the Bulls and then retreat to the beach for some much deserved r&r. #Badgers #Bulls
  • ACC powerhouse Tigers roar not in our house against the worn out Yellow Jackets. #Tigers #YellowJackets
  • To say the Lions were able to repel the Vandals was an understatement of the highest order. #Vandals #NittanyLions
  • Huskies ease by the Eagles, employing a sharp new look with Jacob Eason at the controls. #Eagles #Huskies
  • The OSU sinks Florida Atlantic with a blowout start, and cruises to an easy victory in its home opener. Fields takes the field and seems to pass muster … for the moment. #Owls #Buckeyes
  • Tide bides its time for a quarter, then administers a thorough rebuke to Duke, which was clearly out of its league, not to mention weight class. #Duke #Alabama

BCS Update — 1-7-9 (click post for audio)

Tide succumb to Tiger pride!

BCS Title Game:

The Crimson Tide was all out of answers tonight, as it got thoroughly bottled up and throttled by Dabo’s pride of hungry Tigers. Unable to extract exactly what it wanted on the ground. Bama had to rely on its air attack, which turned out to be a fatal flaw in Saban’s inadequate game plan. In the end, this was an interesting affair until mid-3rd quarter, at which point it just got hopelessly out of hand. And with a Freshman QB and loads of talent coming back, it should be Green Acres in Death Valley for years to come. #Tigers #CrimsonTide

Bowl Game Update — 12-29-18
We have the inevitable: Dabo vs. Nick Satan

Bowl Game Update:

  • Clemson manhandles the light-in-the-loafers Fighting Irish in every way possible. For shame, Notre Dame, as the Golden Domers lay a basket full of rotten eggs once again in the BCS. As for the Tigers, they have all the weapons needed to give Bama a good run for their money, and end this god forsaken era of Satanic worship at the top of the college football pyramid. #FightingIrish #Tigers
  • Try as they may, the Sooners can never recover from starting the Orange Bowl like real lemons … with the most sour case of Okie depression since the 1930s. #Sooners #CrimsonTide
  • More season ending hard times for Harbaugh, as elusive Perine leaves the Wolverines wallowing in in the Peach Bowl latrine. #Gators #Wolverines

Bowl Game Update — 12-28-18

Bowl Game Update:

  • Minshew turns the Cyclone secondary to mincemeat in the Alamo Bowl. #Cyclones #Cougars
  • Syracuse wins a bowl game by default after Will Grier decides he had better things to do than indulge in the wonderful world of camping. #Mountaineers #Orangemen
  • Boilermakers made to look ridiculous by the suddenly ferocious Auburn Tigers in the Music City Bowl. This was the same team that throttled Ohio State? Really? #Boilermakers #Tigers

NCAA Football Update, Week 12 (click for audio):

NCAA Football Update (Week 12):

  • Kyler enjoys driving through KU for 55, but give the Jayhawks credit for putting up 40 of their own; RB Pooka Williams is the closest thing to Mighty Mouse we have in college football, and before he leaves will almost certainly save a more few days for his team from Lawrence. #Jayhawks #Sooners
  • Clemson’s still clucking with a thorough rebuke of Duke. #Tigers #BlueDevils
  • LSU finally gets its offense cooking against Rice. #Owls #Tigers\
  • Bama takes a while to lose its civility, but eventually makes The Citadel feel they are, without question, second class citizens. #Bulldogs #CrimsonTide
  • West Virginia takes its foot off of the gas and finds itself in hot water in Stillwater; give the Cowboys lots of credit for not laying down, and now they’re going out of town for a bowl game in December. #Moutaineers #Cowboys
  • Michigan muddles through a rather uninspiring beating of Indiana; they’d better be sharper than this if they hope to find satisfaction in Columbus. #Hoosiers #Wolverines
  • Dawgs don’t dawdle in making mincemeat out of the Minutemen. #Minutemen #Bulldogs
  • Semi-impressive win at home for the once proud Seminoles; same old result for the less-than-regal Eagles. #Eagles #Seminoles
  • Today’s collapse was indeed the lemon we were waiting for from the over-achieving Orange. Ouch! #Orange #FightingIrish
  • Not much resistance mustered by Rutgers at home against Penn St. #NittanyLions #ScarletKnights
  • Nothing new from NU, just a workmanlike win over the going nowhere Golden Gophers. #GoldenGophers #Wildcats
  • Terps show plenty of College Park spark, and nearly pull off the upset of the year against heavily favored OSU … but unlike horseshoes and hand grenades, close does not count in college football… #Terrapins #Buckeyes

NCAA Football Update, Week 11 (click for audio):


NCAA Football Update:

  • Great Texas football match up, reminiscent of a Southwest Conf. showdown between Darrel Royal and Gene Stallings, turns on the arm of gunslinger Ehlinger. All this needed to conjure up the perfect memories was a barefoot kicker like A&M’s Tony Franklin. Or better yet, how about the toast of Texas, Russell Erxleben. Yeah, that last name sure works!
  • Notre Dame’s attack sure didn’t look wimpy, being guided by back up Wimby, or perhaps the stinky Seminole D had something to do with it. #Seminoles #FightingIrish
  • Swift kick to the groin, when D’Andre goes for 186 from the line of scrimmage; Bulldogs going through the motions of that seemingly futile exercise of trying to get ready for a battle with the great Saban. #Tigers #Bulldogs
  • Too bad Army wasn’t today’s casualty … then we could say Knights slay Black Knights.#Knights #BlackKnights
  • Boise’s rugged Rypien is starting to look pretty ripe for picking in the next NFL draft, with today’s game film being as much as you need. He may put up better number than his dad. #Bulldogs #Broncos
  • Tigers burrow down and taser the Razorbacks. #Tigers #Razorbacks
  • Isaiah helps fulfill the prophecy that one way or another Northwestern will eventually get noticed as a contender for the Big 10 title. Another less-than-sexy bare knuckles brawl ends well for the Wildcats. #Wildcats #Hawkeyes
  • And now for this week’s loser in the habitual snoozer at Tuscaloosa … the Bulldogs of MSU. #Bulldogs #CrimsonTide
  • Wolverines invade Piscataway and take the air game away from the landlocked Scarlet Knights. Another rather meaningless tuneup for the showdown in a few weeks with The Ohio State Buckeyes. #Wolverines #Rutgers
  • As usual, the football Volunteers show no fear against their Border State rivals the Wildcats.
  • Unranked Badgers get spanked in Happy Valley; no surprise as McSorley upstages Coan, who is by stretch a gridiron barbarian. #Badgers #NittanyLions
  • Morgantown Grier continues to shake things up … in a good way … at home for WVU. #Moutaineers #HornedFrogs
  • Wearing enough Orange to make Donald Trump happy, Syracuse stays smoldering hot and runs the score up real big against the Loserville Cardinals. #Cardinals #Orange
  • Wolfpack are most hospitable hosts to their Carolina brethren from Wake, falling asleep in the final minute and giving up a crushing go-ahead TD by newcomer Newman. As usual, NC State’s football team never misses an opportunity to miss an opportunity. #DemonDeacons #Wolfpack
  • Three yards and a cloud of green dust for the Spartans; a little more for the Bucks. For those how dare to put MSU in the Top 25, today’s display is certainly an eye sore. #Buckeyes #Spartans



NCAA Football Update, Week 9 (click for audio):

NCAA Football Update, Week 9:

  • Fighting Irish threw the Book at smarty pants Wildcats,… and it worked. #FightingIrish #Wildcats
  • Pitt displays a punishing ground game in Cavalier country, and, lo and hold, stay near the top of the heap in the ACC. #Panthers #Cavaliers
  • In what could termed a shock, Tigers drain the Swamp with lots of Lock and Lockett. #Tigers #Gators
  • It wasn’t easy but Auburn avoids Armageddon with a last minute TD against the Aggies. #Aggies #Tigers
  • Dungey spells doomsday for the dejected Demon Deacons. #Orange #DemonDeacons
  • Huskers hang in like grim death against highly favored OSU, only to get denied at the finish by a bobbing and dodging Dobbins. #Cornhuskers #Bukeyes
  • It’s business as usual in Lawrence, as Purdy engineers a pretty easy win for the Cyclones at Kansas. #Cyclones #Jayhawks
  • Temple takes a tumble against the onrushing Knights. #Knights #Owls
  • Clemson uses its Lawrence styled Fridge Package to oxidize the Loserville Cardinals. #Cardinals #Tigers
  • The only thing dead in Death Valley tonight was Orgy’s very dull and life

NCAA Football Update, Week 8 (click for audio):


NCAA Football Update:

  • Georgia spikes, and beats its opponents, to the punch in the annual cocktail party, after sending its friends from Florida a love letter straight Fromm the heart. Nice bounce back game for the Dogs after their rather dreary belly flop at LSU. #Gators #Bulldogs
  • Seminoles fold like a house of cards in the face of Clemson’s onslaught. Tigers are categorically and unequivocally the kings of the jungle in the very uncompetitive ACC. #Tigers #Seminoles
  • Kyler taps into his CeeDee player and provides some great entertainment for the native Normans in OU’s throttling of KSU. #Wildcats #Sooners
  • 2 yards and cloud of dust. Well maybe not that bad, but this was a choppy, ugly pairing of two offenses that had plenty of fits and not to many starts. PSU survives at home, … just barely. #Hawkeyes #NittanyLions
  • Baylor bails out from the fight at Morgantown; another glorious performance from Grier the Mountaineer. #Bears #Moutaineers
  • Time to start taking NU seriously; no red badge of courage today for the Badgers, who stink it up at Evanston. #Badgers #Wildcats
  • Kentucky’s version of the Cardiac Cats win their feline spat with Mizzou’s Tigers; at 7-1, this team probably should be ranked, if not respected. #Wildcats #Tigers
  • Utah wins the battle of Britain held Friday night at the Rose Bowl, as, once again, UCLA looks useless, and Chip Kelly’s program appears to be in shambles. #Utes #Bruins
  • App. St. clearly let the current state of affairs get to its head. Now they are the victim of a shocking upset. #Moutaineers #Eagles
  • They’re going berserk at Berserkley, with the dream finish fashioned by Weaver. #Huskies #GoldenBears
  • With Gardner tending to his position in the field so dutifully, the Cougars of Whitman County were certainly hot to trot at Stanford. #Cougars #Cardinals

NCAA Football Update, Week 7 (click for audio):

NCAA Football Update, Week 7:

  • Gophers haven’t been running this scared in Nebraska since the days of Danny Noonan and Bushwood Country Club. #Cornhuskers #GoldenGophers
  • Buckeyes looked like they played this one with their eyes closed, getting scalded badly by the Boilers at West Lafayette, in what must be viewed as the most puzzling result of this college football season. #Buckeyes #Boilermakers
  • Cakewalk for Badgers at Camp Randle against ill-equipped Illini. #Illini #Badgers
  • Bowser’s run is the ruination of Rutgers nation, and Northwestern narrowly avoids letting things totally slip away in Piscataway. #ScarletKnights #Rutgers
  • Penn St.relies on McSorley for a sorely needed, if unimpressive, win. #NittanyLions #Hoosiers
  • Twerpy Terps go away very quietly in Iowa City. Is Iowa this good? Clearly not, but MD is, as usual, nowhere to be found for big games on the road. #Terrapins #Hawkeyes
  • Clemson destroys the most inept Wolfpack seen since the Hangover. #Wolfpack #Tigers
  • Huskies hunker down at home and watch leader shake and bake against the Buffs. #Buffaloes #Huskies
  • Sooners continue to prove you can win in the Big 12 with not much defense, but will that serve them well when they go bowling. #Sooners #HornedFrogs
  • No smoke and mirrors to save the sputtering Spartans today, as Michigan dominates from the start. #Wolverines #Spartans
  • Alabama implements the mercy rule, pulling Tagovailoa halfway through the third quarter, en route to tagging Tennessee with an embarrassing home loss. #CrimsonTide #Volunteers

NCAA Football Update, Week 6 (click for audio):

NCAA Football Update:

  • Badgers look more like beavers in getting totally pelted at the Big House. #Badgers #Wolverines
  • Whoa Nellie, look what those Cyclones whipped up at Ames for the unsuspecting Mounties. W. Va will surely to topple precipitously out of the Top 10 after this misfire. #Mountaineers #Cyclones
  • After a reasonable 1st quarter, Alabama gets serious and kicks things into high bear; the result is a miserable experience for Mizzou. #Tigers #CrimsonTide
  • Lions’ reputation takes a hit in Happy Valley as Spartans pull out all the stops in a 4 point upset win on the road. #Spartans #NittanyLions
  • Feisty Commodores command Florida’s attention and then proceed to get chomped. #Gators #Commodores
  • LSU makes a strong statement that they, no the formerly No. 2 Bulldogs, are the real competition in the SEC for ‘Bama. What a defense for the Bayou Bengals! #Bulldogs #Tigers
  • The good Book certainly gave the crowd a happy ending at South Bend. NIce try for the upset mnded Panthers from Pitt. #Panthers #FightingIrish
  • Pretty solid effort by the Gophers, who kept this interesting going into the 4th quarter … until being beaten back by Haskins and an efficient Buckeye aerial attack. #Buckeyes #GoldenGophers

NCAA Football Update, Week 3 (click for audio):

NCAA Football Update:

  • Wisconsin weathers a bit of a storm in Iowa City, and carries off The Heartland Trophy. Looking at the rest of the Big Ten West, to say they don’t have much to worry about is the understatement of the year … and they themselves really aren’t that good. #Badgers #Hawkeyes
  • Army’s tough ground game very nearly sunk the Sooners, who had to scramble behind the heroics of Kyler Murray for a narrow victory at home over the Knights. #Knights #Sooners
  • Wildcats scamper for cover in the face of Grier the Mountaineer. #Wildcats #Mountaineers
  • Urban renews his coaching vows by patrolling the sidelines in a total flattening of the Green Wave. #GreenWave #Buckeyes
  • Freshman Lawrence gives Clemson a fresh start at QB; Tigers romp. #Tigers #YellowJackets
  • Wimbush and the Fighting Irish put the Demon Deacons through many trials and tributions at Winston Salem. #FightingIrish #DeamonDeacons
  • Another no-show, shoddy effort from Nebraska, allowing a Wolverine kick returner to take one back to the house in the Big House, and generally get pushed around something awful. Oh how the once mighty have fallen. #Cornhuskers #Wolverines
  • TD passes from Fromm buoy the Bulldogs in Columbia, MO. #Bulldogs #Tigers
  • Illini lie down at home for the Lions. #NittanyLions #Illini
  • So much for the new and improved BC Eagles, who fall flat at West Lafayette. #Eagles #Boilermakers
  • A no doubt thrilling West Coast encounter that few people will notice (nothing worse than college football on a Friday night) … yes, USC, you are not 1-3, but you are terribly mediocre in the underwhelming Lack-16. #Trojans #Cougars
