College Football 2019 – Week 13

While much of the country may be feeling the chill of fall, the college football gridiron remains red-hot! The Atlantic Coast Conference has the the #16 Notre Dame Fighting Irish ☘️ hosting the Boston College Eagles 🦅 while the Pittsburgh Panthers 🐆 are in Blacksburg to play the Virginia Tech Hokies 🦃. Sadly, the N.C. State Wolfpack 🐺 came up short against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets 🐝 28-26 on Thursday night.  In the Big Ten, the biggest game features the #8 Penn State Nittany Lions 🦁 at the #2 Ohio State Buckeyes 🍂. Also, the #10 Minnesota Golden Gophers 🐿 play the Northwestern Wildcats 😸 and the #20 Iowa Hawkeyes 🐤 host the Illinois Fighting Illini 🏹.  The top matchup in the SEC is the Texas A&M Aggies 🤠 at the #4 Georgia Bulldogs 🐶, while the Big 12 offers up the #13 Baylor Bears 🐻 hosting the Texas Longhorns 🐮. Finally, the Pac-12 has the #6 Oregon Ducks 🦆 at the Arizona State Sun Devils 🌞 😈, Mike Leach and the Washington State Cougars 🐆 host the Oregon State Beavers 🐿, and the Washington Huskies 🐺 are at the Colorado Buffaloes 🐃.

As for my Texas Tech Red Raiders 🏴‍☠️, they are playing host to the Kansas State Wildcats 😸.  This game is a must-win for Tech; a loss will eliminate the Red Raiders from bowl eligibility.

The Wildcats have this hype video to get themselves fired up.

Not bad. Rather charming, reminding me of my early teenage years in the late ’80s. But when it comes to hype videos, the Red Raiders show how it’s done!

The dedication at the very end of the video made me smile. And the sirens of the sidelines never fail to raise my heartbeat. Guns Up!!! 👆

    Mario Cristobal has already earned $750K  in bonuses for the year. Keep raking it in Sir!  GO DUCKS!!!

    The Pond Scum has made his entrance. To make this thread whole again, GO DAWGS!!

    I think I saw a picture of a husky on a milk carton the other day. They all seem to have gone missing this year.

    By the way, there’s only 1 college in all the land that has the football and men’s & women’s basketball teams all ranked in the top 15.

    I have to make a comment before someone Fowls the place up.

    Thanks again, Mike!

    Too late, 1/10th of a buck.

    I forgot about your Oregonian ways, Trin! Williamette! I have to try harder to be first next week. Of course, I could just delete your comment and claim victory. Mhahahahaha!

  4. As we discussed, I am now demanding an NFL post as well. The Seahawks/Niners game was probably one of the most exciting sports events I’ve ever watched.

    You like Seattle and Russell Wilson is a whole lotta fun to watch. Even though I worship at the Brady/Belichick altar, you’ve got some skin in the league. Go for it.

    NFL – Yawwwwn.  Zzzzzz

    I hate the Seahawks, perhaps more than the Huskies. Primarily because the media tries to shove them down Portland’s throat.

    I’ll definitely consider the possibility of writing an NFL article.  The last time I recall talking about the NFL online was at the legacy site where you and Charlotte posted an article about the hottest men in the league and I responded by posting multiple SeaGal cheerleader pics. 😎

    I’m sorry for you. As I mentioned, I’m a Pats fan, but Russell Wilson is highly entertaining and he killed it last week against the best defense in the league.

    A defense anchored by 2 former Ducks – Armisted & Buckner. That’s really the only thing I pay attention to in the NFL – former Ducks.

    Many sports aficionados consider Arik Armstead the best player on the entire team.

    Yeah, my spelling was off. Coming out of HS he was rated one of the best OL prospects in the country. But he wanted to play defense and Oregon offered him the chance.

    Since about 1970 – when I first became aware of football.  My father was born in Eugene and although he never attended college he was a big fan of the Ducks.

    We had moved to Canada in 1966 and I was dutifully obsessed with hockey. New Years Eve 1970 I messed up my ankle playing hockey and so spent the next couple of days with ice on it.  Nothing else to do but take in bowl games – and I got hooked.

    Oregon didn’t go to bowl games back then, though.

    They do, the Texans. As a North Texas Native, you Southies need your own State. I’ll take the great Cowboys and you all can have the Houstons.

    Most have heard at least part of this story, but this is a very well done piece.  I spent the first 6 years of my life in the Parkrose district.  After growing up and getting married, our first house was about 1/2 mile from the school.  I have a definite soft spot for the school.

    Heck, you know I do too. The best comedic film in history was shot there. 🙂
