welcome to part 2, and the beginning of the college football play-offs selection showdown. re-makes in general usually leave a lot to be desired. part 1 left plenty on the table and riled up any number of folks. can they get it right this time around? probably not but only time tells and we have about a week to see what shakes out. i’m not holding my breath.
but first we need to get through this coming saturdays slate of championship games. i’m only interested in two of the games. plan and simple. the rest of the games, meh.
as always, this is for entertainment purposes only. to view it otherwise would be stupid on many levels.
rock ‘n’ roll.
12-5 stanford @ usc. the PAC(8)(10)12 championship game. the trees make their annual appearance, or so it seems. while usc plodded through the year with plenty of ups and downs, which included the sarks public meltdown, before meeting the bruins to see who would end up here. truthfully, i didn’t give either team much of a chance at beating the trees in this game. however, after the golden domers almost took the cardinal out on saturday i’ve changed my mind. the trojans have a very good shot at taking the trees down. of course, they have to play as well and probably even better than they did against the bruins. a game where they never let up and a stellar defense drove the game home. let’s do this trojans. FIGHT ON!!!
12-5 michigan st @ iowa. the BIG(10)12 championship game. the iowa hawkeyes made it to 12 and 0 this year. something they’ve never done before. sadly, my departed pops, an iowa native transplanted to california in 1940, missed this historical event by 2 and a half years. though somewhere someplace i’m sure he’s very happy about the hawkeyes season and their chances here. if they win they’re in. simple as that. sure, lots of haters out there but once again what’s that word i’m looking for? ah, yes…meh. let’s run the table hawkeyes and make it a perfect season. one for the ages and one for my pops.
the brown eyed girl and i are off to vegas until game day. be safe. be semi sane.
