Saturday Football Update


Well, today we put a bow on the regular season with one of my favorites, the Army Navy game. Navy is a 7 point favorite, but Army has been playing better and this might be the year they break through. The Cadets haven’t won since 2001. 2pm on CBS.

In other news, Johnny Football will pick up his hardware tonight in New York, TD should be proud to have that Mike Sherman recruit on the team. He is really something.

People up here have been going nuts over Bret Bielema the Badger coach heading down to Woooooo Pig Sooooooooooooey. I saw a copy of the contract they gave him – trust me you would do the same thing. It is huge.

Barry Alvarez is going to “coach” the Badgers in the Rose Bowl vs. the Cardinals. In reality, he will manage the game, make time out and fourth down calls and that is about it. But it is a big positive PR move up here as he is the AD and is still very much loved for taking the Wisco program out of the dirt and into the mix every year.

Five entrants in the bowl pool so far! That is great. Hopefully we will get TD and Astro in the mix eventually and/or the Rook, who is probably still drunk after the Apple Cup. Love the trash talking going on there.

Don’t forget, if you need a football fix, there is 1-AA, Div. 2 and Div. 3 playoffs going on now. A lot of fine football out there to be seen. I watched a 1-AA game last night for a bit and it was pretty entertaining.

    Who was it a year or two ago that did picks in the pool and didn’t change the point values at all and almost won the dumb thing? I think the rook.

    This is a down time week for you, right? Then soon you have all the crazy bowls coming up.

    I’ll try to get my picks in today. I’m pulling for Johnny Heisman tonight but I have a bad feeling they are giving it to that ND LB. At least the beat down Bama puts on them will even the score a bit.

    Navy has some cool ass helmets. Time for some old skool option football. This game will probably last an hour and a half.

    Fuking Vern Lundquist. Radio feed mandatory.

  9. dfm Says:

    Go Army!

  10. TD Says:

    A couple of impressive runs by the Dogfaces.
    It would be good to see good ol’ Army defeat Navy… capping off an otherwise dismal season.

  11. dfm Says:

    This game is a pleasure to watch. I love option football. As talentless as Illinois is we should consider it.

    Cic trophy weighs 170 pounds!?

    Sad news for a couple of former Illini:

    Josh Brent, starting NT for the Cowboys, drove drunk and killed his passenger/teammate Jerry Brown. Brent’s in jail for homicide.

  14. TD Says:

    Go Army!

  15. astro Says:

    OK, my bowl picks are in. Is it still a bottle of booze entry fee and winner takes all?

  16. dfm Says:

    Army hanging in there sick it mids!

  17. astro Says:

    What time/network does the Johnny Football show come on?

  18. TD Says:

    If the guys in the booth are so good, they need to quit their blabbering and swap jobs with the coaches.

  19. astro Says:

    lol ‘Quick Strike’ Navy offense

  20. TD Says:

    Bad way to lose the game…

  21. astro Says:

    I wish CBS would get cameras off Steelman. He looks like a guy that’s gonna hang himself tonight.

  22. dfm Says:

    Dang tough ending for army.

  23. astro Says:

    Alright, Johnny Football time! Don’t fuck it up, Heisman voters.

  24. astro Says:

    Man, ESPN really drags this thing out. Of course, it really is something of a letdown, since the most important award was given out Thursday night:
