Rivalry Week lives up to hype

Beginning with Mississippi State’s dramatic overtime win over arch-rival Mississippi in the 2013 Egg Bowl on Thanksgiving night, college football’s annual Rivalry Week was full of big plays, timely defense, some trickeration, and BCS-changing upsets.  The table is being set, with one of the few BCS questions remaining to be settled next Saturday in Stillwater, Oklahoma, 11:00 am kickoff.

Friday’s SEC matchup featured hapless Arkansas reverting to form in the final seconds to give up the game winning TD pass to LSU’s freshman qb, after Mettenberger went down with a season ending knee injury.

Saturday’s games included Michigan’s tough loss  to Ohio State in The Game, SC thumping of Clemson, and Missouri claiming the SEC East over aTm in the night cap.  But, far and away, the game of the year was played at Jordan-Hare Stadium as Auburn claimed the West in the annual Iron Bowl with an ending that I can best describe in three letters.  …  WOW!!!   If you didn’t see it, just check SportsCenter, it will be shown for weeks to come.  Auburn has the look of a team of destiny, if you believe in that kind of stuff, or unbelievably lucky if you don’t.

Rivalry Week was a Football Feast.  Bowl season is coming up fast, and I can’t believe how quickly the season has passed.

 

Three months to live

Writing a blog post generally begins with an idea, followed by a quick run-through, getting as much down as I can without losing the original inspiration.  After that, a quick edit or three, and finishing touches of a photo, then a title.

Today, I began with the title first.  Now I’m trying to backfill with a post.

Today is Friday, September 21, 2012.

Today, there are 46 days till Election Day.

Today, according to the Mayan calendar, we’ve got three months to live.

Today, Mississippi State is making final preparations to raise their record to 4-0 against another Sunbelt Conference opponent.

Today, if the Mayans are correct, the December 20, 2012 football polls will have Mississippi State ranked #1, and scheduled to face a Big-12 opponent, probably Oklahoma, in the BCS National Championship Game.


This is the World Famous Friday Open Thread, End of the World edition.

WFFOT:  And I feel fine.

UT takes Ohio State in Fiesta Bowl

A opportunistic 2 minute drill, an advantageous spot on 4th down,  and a missed tackle at the 20 yard line gave the Texas Longhorns a comeback victory over the Buckeyes of THE Ohio State University in the 2009 edition of the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl.  

ESPN quotes Texas QB Colt McCoy, “I don’t think there’s anybody in the country who can beat us at this point.” Of course, this is quite true, simply because there are no more games left for Texas this season.  But  this statement cannot be based on the Longhorns’ performance on the field tonight.

The pre-game buzz centered around some type of  statement  that an overwhelming Texas victory would send to the poll voters in split-championship dream fantasy.  

Color me unimpressed. Texas was physically manhandled by the underdogs from the Big Ten Conference.  Yes, they won the game, but it was another underwhelming performance by the much-ballyhooed Big-12.

For most of the night, the Buckeyes stifled the high-powered Longhorns, who averaged 43.9 points this season but mustered only a field goal in the first half. They didn’t lead until a nifty third-quarter touchdown run by McCoy, who also threw for 414 yards and two scores with an interception.
