Saturday College Football Game Day Open Comment Thread

Just because the Red and Black will not be in action at any point this afternoon or evening doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy one another’s usual collegiality on an autumn Saturday, particular with a lineup before us that includes, but is not limited to, the following:

12:00 noon: Cincinnati Bearcats at Pittsburgh Panthers
12:00 noon: Houston Cougars at East Carolina Pirates
12:00 noon: West Virginia Mountaineers at Rutgers Scarlet Knights
4:00 p.m.: Alabama Crimson Tide v. Florida Gators
8:00 p.m.: Nebraska Cornhuskers v. Texas Longhorns
8:00 p.m.: Clemson Tigers v. Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets
11:30 p.m.: Wisconsin Badgers at Hawaii Warriors

That slate generates legitimate interest without requiring emotional investment; we care, though not so much that we’ll get too far down if things don’t go our way and yet still enough that, if we like what we see (if, say, certain teams whose names rhyme with Horrida Haters and Borgia Heck Fellow Packets happen to lose), we can get so jacked we’ll go eat a stick of butter.

Feel free to join in the fun, folks. I’m trusting podunkdawg to bring the brownies, tankertoad to bring the pessimism, and a good time to be had by all.

Go ‘Dawgs!
