So over on the rivals.com forums there is a big to-do about Erin Andrews. Then they polled about who you'd rather, um, have relations with. Look at those pictures and if you still say EA, then blonde hair blinds you, and I hope you get diarrhea tomorrow during the games. I could be SOOO much meaner to EA, but I'll save my anger for Saturday night.
So last night we finally got to see some football. The PAC 10 game was more enjoyable to watch than the lame duck display Tommy Beecher and the Cocks displayed last night. I'm pretty sure Tommy Beeker could have outperformed that dude. FOUR interceptions against the mighty Wolfpack defensive schemes? There could have been two Ford F150s out there, parked, 15 yards from the LOS, and he'd still manage to deflect it off the tailgate instead of hitting his receiver.
I will admit I did enjoy watching NC State's linebacker Nate Irving all OVER the field last night. Very impressive in a losing effort. And Captain Munnerlyn is a better returner than corner right now. Just like last year. You can't keep letting fools slip by you deep, Cap'n.
And did anybody notice the S-E-C chants last night? Thought that was a nice touch. With the Big XII and Big Televen always wanting to get noticed and put in the same sentence with the SEC, they get to sit at home and watch ESPN's first game involuntarily rub it in their face. And "we" get a shutout of an ACC team to boot. Ahh these are magical times.
That said, it's taking WAY too long for the ESPN spotlight game to commence. It's #24 Alabama vs #9 Clemson, in case you didn't see the 300 commercials about it, or hear Lou Holthz repeatedly praise Nick Saban's LSU defense of old, or hear Mark May repeatedly praise "6'5 240 lb left tackle Andre Smith", as if he's the only player stepping on the field tomorrow. While I'm on the subject...
LOU, SHUT THE FUCK UP ABOUT NOTRE DAME. WE GET IT--YOU COACHED THERE. GOD HAVE MERCY.
I hope he splits the cleaning bill on the ESPN set. God knows he's flinging mushed carrots and applesauce saliva all over Mark May and Rece Davis. Aghhhh. I digress...
So tonight we'll get to see June Jones and his new team, the SMU Somethingorothers, with his patented passing attack. Something tells me last year's 170 rush yards per game will change in 2008. Call it a hunch. I'm not even sure June knows any other run play than a shotgun draw. And even then he's like but if you see a receiver open, tell the tailback to throw it! Temple at Army is the other high profile game. In other words, you might wanna take your girlfriend out for y'all's last "real" date of the year...while she's still your girlfriend, that is.
Okay, as much as I have to say about the state of my beloved Crimson Tide, I'll have to keep it all in until Saturday night. And believe me, win lose or draw, I'll have a LOT more to say afterwards. I feel good about our chances, but like I posted earlier, to hedge my karma and luck, I pick Clemson to win 20-19. I sincerely hope I'm wrong.
Enjoy Gameday, bitches.
