duke is gonna get the duke stomped out of them but they've done a terrific job this year. i kinda wished they'd win because i'd rather auburn play tOSU honestly. if they both lose we'd get iron bowl 2 for the NC and i really don't want to play them again this year, i don't think my heart could take it and i don't think anyone outside of the state of alabama would want to see it anyway.
however, if one of the top two go down tonight and auburn gets back to the NC and wins that'll be five in a row for the state of alabama (useless stat, i know, but i think it would be neat).
i want to make the argument that auburn deserves it over tOSU anyway but we did lose to LSU so fair is fair, i guess. i will whine about the schedules though. the latest stat i saw showed auburn had the 16th ranked schedule and FSU and tOSU were 65th and 80th, i'm off a few spots i know but you get my whining drift. our rushing attack is unfuckingstoppable and though i think auburn/fsu would be a close game, i equally think that we'd mudhole stomp tOSU.
anyways, its been a great season so far and i'll gladly accept whatever bowl game we get whether its the NC or the sugar.
Excellent! thanks for playing along, sperry! i have a pretty full plate and saturday is fast approaching so how about we stick to the ones we disagree on and if we can squeeze a few more in, all the better. so lets see...
I have MSU beating tOSU in the big 10, auburn winning against mizzou and baylor over tay-haas. I'm wondering if I missed some injuries with baylor (the seastrunk injury is going to hurt in that game for sure, IMO) so i may be off on that one but i'll play devils advocate nonetheless. its about midnight here and i've gotta hit the sack but i've already begun with the MSU/OSU matchup so it will be up tomorrow for sure. i haven't had a structured discussion about football on the board all year i think, so i'm really looking forward to this. Thanks again for playing along. have a good one!
I've got to go through and determine which comic arcs that I'm going to consider a "read" and thus add to the list but I did just finish the republic of thieves so that brings my total up to 12\50. some of ya'll are machines, I wish I could read as much or as fast as some of you. I feel like i'm missing so much
I just finished the republic of thieves and though I know just the bare bones of theater, having been involved in a play or two in my time, and absolutely nothing of politics, I enjoyed it nonetheless. 8/10
still reading whispers underground, raylan, caliban's war and the last werewolf at various stages of completion but i'm enjoying them all. to replace the republic of thieves i'm going to read one of the following:
1. reamde by Stephenson
2. fool's errand by hobb, in anticipation for hobb's new trilogy
3. iron jackal by wooding.
help me out ya'll. what were your favorite of the three?
don't forget, we paid 180K for nick marshall. being the only school in college football to do that and not get caught (no one else's teams get 100 dollar handshakes btw), its nice to not wait too long ofr the next one.
we are back. nice to see a lot of white shirts around plays that didn't involve the future first round DP from TAM at WR. also, nice to see us win. with a horrible arkansas, a pothole field having tennesseee and then a decimated UGA and an underachieving alabama to go...and also florida atlantic, i'll be rooting for bama to beat lsu and us to beat bama so we can show mizzou how to run an offense in the SEC championship.
the malzahn/ellis combo will be more unstoppable next year than it has been this year. i just wish we could get a rematch with lsu like bama did. the way i feel right now, we'd rush for a million yards against anyone. WAR EAGLE!!!
eta: i wonder how many times johnny football rushed for more yards in one play than he did against us all game. its beautiful to have so many sophomores, juniors and a few freshman playing like this right now.
