Meh, I'm feeling the same way, but mostly because my boys are poised to follow-up a stellar 2-10 season with... another one, if they're lucky.

Sigh.

2 Wins?  Luxury!  Some of us between Indy and Chitown can only dream of 2 wins.

Hey guys. Those who've been around long enough are aware of my proclivities of dogging on college football in favor of NFL football. Well that ends now.

College ball has taken a huge step in the right direction (playoffs) while the NFL is making all the wrong moves (penalizing defense, getting greedy to a fault and handling suspensions very poorly...also treating fans like shiat)

I still prefer the NFL, for now, but my enthusiasm for the college game is back and better than ever. Looking forward to the season!

I think A&M is gonna beat South Carolina.

Ole Miss barely gets by Boise St. As only Ole Miss could.  Probably a safety on a failed punt or some crap like that.

I think Washington St. is going to be a surprise team.

Vandy should put it on Temple.

I will be surprised if USCe loses, I'm hoping Ole Piss blows 'em out so they're overconfident for next week.

Wazzu is supposed to have been a surprise team ever since Leach go there.

From your keyboard to the college football god's ears!!

Kinda in the same boat. Except its New Old Coach New Season. I just hope we haven't opened ourselves up to be farked over again. I'm tired of Louisville being the testing ground for Head Coaches.

Masshole who went to a non-FB school. I've always loved college football; probably comes from being a kid when Flutie and the last Irish national championship happened.

Here's some minor serendipitous trivia:

The USS Saratoga CV-60, my home for 32 months between 1991 and 1993, is in transit, off the coast of South Carolina, to Brownsville Texas to be dismantled after 20 years waiting in Rhode Island.

The Saratoga's mascot was a gamecock based on the following legendary feisty chicken:

The Legend of The Rooster

On the morning of the 11th of September, the British squadron sailed from the north, around Cumberland Head and into the bay where Macdonough's fleet was waiting.

"As the English squadron stood bravely in, young Thomas Macdonough, who feared his foes not at all, but his God a great deal, knelt for a moment, with his officers on the quarter-deck; and then ensued a few minutes of perfect quiet, the men waiting in grim expectancy for the opening of the fight.The American ship Eagle spoke first with her long 18's (cannon) but to no effect, for the shot fell short.

Then, as the British ship Linnet passed the American ship Saratoga, she fired her broadside of long 12's, but her shot also fell short, except one that struck a coop containing a gamecock that happened to be aboard the Saratoga.

Instead of being frightened at his sudden release, he jumped up on a gun-slide, clapped his wings, and crowed lustily.  The men laughed and cheered; and immediately afterward Macdonough himself fired the first shot from one of the long guns.  The 24-pound ball struck the British ship Confiance near the hawse-hole and ranged the length of her deck, killing and wounding several men. All the American long guns now opened and were replied to by the British galleys."

The story of the plucky rooster has been handed down over time and is dedicated in several paintings of the battle including one on a mural in Plattsburgh's City Hall.  Today, the U.S. Navy continues to have the rooster as a mascot on the USS Saratoga aircraft carrier.

I'm sorta excited.  This season has to be better for Cal than last season, right? New DC? Buncha guys returning from injury? QB has a full season running the Bear Raid under his belt? Right?

...right?

...probably 2-10, huh? 4-8 if we're lucky?

...well, at least there's the NFL. The Rai--ah, fark it.  Even a 2-10 Cal team is going to be more interesting than the Raiders.

Huh, didn't know it had left Newport.  I could see it every time I drove along Coddington Highway heading towards stuff on that side of the city.

Huh.  just got an email from my parents:

"extra ticket for ASU / Notre Dame 11/8 (or whatever day the game is).  Yours if you want it.  Problem:  ONE TICKET ONLY and it is 3 rows away a few seats down from us."
