football... yawn

Well, it was a ...boring... football weekend. We got to watch Tech (19) kick the crap out of another high school caliber team, ND (16) beat down an ailing Washington, and Texas didn't play. In fact, there wasn't a single watchable game in the Big 12 this weekend. Really the only interesting thing about the whole damn weekend (outside of baseball) was watching Michigan and Oklahoma fall out of the rankings (and I think the Sooners might have actually taken the tumble last week). Haven't seen either of them so low in years. (What do you call a bunch of millionaires watching the Rose Bowl? The Oklahoma Sooners)

Tech's schedule is looking worse and worse, too. As of this week's rankings, Tech plays exactly 1 ranked team. And it's not for another month. And it's a guaranteed loss (sorry guys, but Tech beating the 'Horns? Ain't gonna happen.). At least next week they're finally playing a bonafide Big 12 team (Kansas), though the Jayhawks aren't exactly the conference's finest. In fact, the next 3 weeks are against teams from the Big 12 North, which is in the crapper right now. Oh well: they'll do, for now.

How can you ignore the pros, where Peyton shuffled his feet to glory against the Browns? Or where Orton screwed the pooch with not one, not two, not three, not four, but FIVE interceptions?! Don't he know he's breakin' momma's heart??

What can I say, I'm a college fan, though I must admit I do enjoy watching the Peyton shuffle. Didn't hear about Orton's fiasco; give him time, he's a rookie! And I mean, really, if Brett Favre can do it and still be called a great quarterback, then maybe Orton's just on his way to greatness. Maybe. I guess...
