Your weekly non-Dawg… er, no Dawg game day post, 10/22 edition

Focus, people.  There’s still plenty of college football being played today.

#22North Carolina


3:00 PM

You may not care, but my other alma mater is playing today.  Still hard to get a handle on North Carolina, which for now represents Georgia’s sole quality 2016 win.


#12West Virginia

3:30 PM

West Virginia’s ranked twelfth?  How did that happen?

#6Texas A&M


3:30 PM

The SEC West is running out of time to bring the Tide back to earth.



6:00 PM

This looks to be a good gauge of where both teams stand now.

Mississippi State


7:30 PM

Mississippi State gets a chance to prove it’s worthy of the SEC West.

Tennessee State


7:30 PM

Is there such a thing as a trap game for the Commodores?


Texas Tech

8:00 PM

What do I predict?  Scoring.  Lots of scoring.

#23Ole Miss


9:00 PM

I guess we’ll find out what kind of job Coach O is doing.

Add your thoughts in the comments.

Go, dog, go.

I’m still trying to cheer you guys up.

Boise State has a dog that retrieves kicking tees.

You’re welcome.

Today’s slate isn’t the most scintillating, but there are a few compelling matchups to keep an eye on.

Georgia Southern

Georgia Tech

12:30 PM

Eh… probably not.



3:30 PM

Can the Vols hang on to the ball?  If not, I foresee a long day.

#12Ole Miss


7:00 PM

Last couple of years, the Hogs have been to the Rebels what Ole Miss has been to ‘Bama.

#2Ohio State


8:00 PM

Every time this season I’ve thought Wisconsin was going into a game it was bound to lose, it seems like it’s won.


Washington State

10:30 PM

Leach’s team is on something of a roll, but that’s a really good defense it’ll play tonight.

Feel free to discuss any other games that are of interest to you.

Words to live by

USA Today hosts a roundtable discussion on the topic of whether college football games are too damned long (predictably, the panel splits 2-2), but as far as I’m concerned, Paul Myerberg wins the day with this:

I don’t think there should be any adjustments for time to shorten games. What, the season isn’t short enough as it is? I’m in favor of games taking days on end and the college season running for seven days a week, 52 weeks a year. My dream is for a game between No. 1 and No. 2 lasting three days and 25 overtimes.

The only people who moan about the games being too long are television executives and reporters on deadline. Since we don’t print a paper on Sundays I say let’s keep things exactly as they are.

College football is like beer.  You can never have too much.

You’ve got to spend money to lose money.

The 104 of the 128 athletic departments in the NCAA’s Football Bowl Subdivision that do not bring in enough money through ticket sales, donations, or other outside revenue to offset their costs saw their average deficit double over the last decade.

This must be why we hear college presidents say they don’t necessarily want to hire athletic directors with business backgrounds.

Go home, 2016 season. You’re drunk.

Fan in Iowa City wants to build a 7,500-square-foot home that will resemble the University of Iowa’s Kinnick Stadium, right down to the brick siding and press box.

I can’t figure out for the life of me why his neighbors might be upset.

Some pretty big games today, including an elimination game in Gainesville, Florid… oh, wait.

Let’s start over.



12:00 PM

Other than Charlie Strong’s career, it’s hard to remember a Red River Shootout with less at stake.


Mississippi State

12:00 PM

The Gus Bus rolls into Starkville.  Will it roll out under its own power?

#25Virginia Tech

#17North Carolina

3:30 PM

If the Hokies can hang on to the ball, this has the potential to be a compelling game.


#8Texas A&M

3:30 PM

The biggest game in Texas today.



7:00 PM

Bert tries to climb Mt. Saban again.

#23Florida State


8:00 PM

Does Miami get exposed as having played a weak schedule, or are the Canes for real?
