week 12 was fairly interesting with the final demise of my pre-season favorite, utah, along with ohio st’s baffling loss. although the only game i sat through was ucla @ utah. this week is rivalry week or it used to be. there’re still some rivalry games being played this week but back in the day there were many more.
the championship playoff poll should be interesting this week. though the only one worth a damn is the last one and perhaps they’ll get it right but probably not. for my money, bama should fall a couple of slots for playing and wiping the floor with the FCS powerhouse, mother theresa auto mechanic tech, in the middle of november. shame on you, coach satan. get real. like that’s gonna happen.
the only game i have any interest in this week is the one below.
as always, this is for mostly irreverent entertainment purposes only. simple as that.
rock ‘n’ roll.
11-28 ucla @ usc. lotus land’s crosstown rivalry. a years worth of bragging rights in the city of lost angels. generally speaking this is a very good game even if either school hasn’t been playing well. the game looms large for the bruins as a win puts them into the PAC(8)(10)12 championship game. but guess what? the trojans are riding in the same boat. though ucla is coming in after a tough win against the utes. usc, on the other hand, got rolled over by the ducks who’ve suddenly stumbled upon a defense. a good thing but with a number of losses too late to really matter. ESPN has the trojans, on paper, as the team to beat, 65% to 35%. a home field advantage for the trojans could prove vital. if the weather humps are right the weather should actually be fall like here saturday afternoon. the winner? either way this year. but maybe an edge goes to usc.
happy thanksgiving. be safe. be semi sane.
