“The football gods are watching.”

Honestly, do any of y’all feel this?

No. 3 Georgia and No. 7 Notre Dame are both steeped in rich tradition, but they don’t have much real history together, not as far as actual on-field meetings go. Yet their matchup Saturday feels like one filled with the bad blood, pettiness and season-changing implications that go hand-in-hand with rivalry games.

The “bad blood” evidently is supposed to extend from last year’s CFP, which the Irish made and Dawgs didn’t.  Not sure who’s feeling that now, especially after Georgia laid an egg in the Sugar Bowl.

This just seems like the kind of trumped up stuff Mickey loves to invent, because it’s not enough to have a first-time meeting in Athens between two great programs that both come in ranked in the top ten.  I’ve got the feeling I’ll be really glad I can’t watch College GameDay Saturday.

“80 plays vs. 60 commercials.”

Jeez, this is pathetic.

I really don’t want to hear any bullshit suggestions about how to fix college football games being too long.  The issue is obvious; it’s just that nobody has any interest in dealing with it.  Quite the opposite, actually.

Don’t forget to tape the game.

Knowing how some of you feel about her, this should really goose you into coming to Athens this Saturday.

Hey, at least it’s not the Ocho.

Today, in utter horseshit

No, no, a thousand times no to this…

Times like this remind me why I dislike ESPN so intensely.

It’s Mickey’s world, and the rest of us are just living in it.

If you weren’t aware yet, with Florida and Miami kicking the season off in Orlando, ESPN’s College Game Day is taking itself to the Magic Kingdom because of that site’s rich college football tradition it’s a Disney property.  That should make for an interesting pregame venue.

No signs and a $100 entry fee.  Man, I bet those crazy college kids will be lining up for a piece of that sweet action.

When you think about it, it’s really a twisted metaphor on the future of college football.

Speaking of Bill Connelly…

I got a few emails this week asking if I knew where he was going.  I didn’t then, but I do now.

Good for him, of course.  I just hope Mickey doesn’t bury him behind a paywall.
