Well, lets see – clearly the marquis matchup of today is the Illinois Fighting Illini visiting the hated Wisconsin Badgers here in Madison at 2.30. Hot Carl and I will be representing there with the other two hundred or so Illinois fans bedecked in orange and blue amid a sea of red. High of only 46 tomorrow. My prediction is Badgers win by 35 and that Dan and Carl leave at halftime when we are down 21.
Other games of interest on today’s slate:
10.30 – Navy at AFA – besides the Zoomies being in this one, I like that early starting time.
11 – Northwestern at JoPa – Northwestern is undefeated this year so far, and is a very well coached team. I would argue that the Northwestern coaching staff is one of the best in the country, the way they always get more out of less.
11 – Hogs at Whargles – what a disastrous year for the Hogs
2.30 – LSU at Florida – wish I could watch a bit of this game but I will probably be able to watch the second half because the Illini game is at 2.30.
4 – Tulane at Louisiana-Lafayette
5 – Wazzu at Oregon State
6 – Aggies at Olay Miss
6.30 – Miami at Notre Dame at Soldier Field – ND has beaten a bunch of cupcakes so far and Miami is good, but not that good. I can’t wait for ND’s inevitable fall this year
9.30 – The DAWGS at Oregon – a “natural” wraparound for Sk8 on this one as I think it will be 4.30am in Porto when this thing kicks off.
