Don't Bet On It!: College Football National Game of Disinterest

Just scroll down the page, and you’ll see my projections for this weekend’s outcomes, from every outing involving an SEC squad to all the clashes of national import. This just leaves us with the final forecast of the week, which, in fact, involves no prognosticating at all. Obviously, I am alluding to the national game of disinterest.

As its name implies, the national game of disinterest is the lone college football contest of a given weekend so bereft of any redeeming virtues that I decline to predict the winner for the sole purpose of sparing myself the indignity of bothering to check the final score afterward.

This week’s national game of disinterest is . . .

Duke Blue Devils at Boston College Eagles

Admittedly, as a Georgia Bulldogs fan, I’m in no position to talk, but there’s 0-2 in the SEC, and then there’s 0-2 in the ACC. As proud as I am to claim them as fellow members of the 12 Pack Conference, Boston College and Duke are 0-2 in the ACC, which is worse.

How bad is it to be 0-2 in the ACC? Well, for Duke, it’s no big deal, because the Blue Devils have stunk pretty much since Steve Spurrier left since Wallace Wade left at all times after the Final Four but before Midnight Madness. Meanwhile, things have gotten so bad at Chestnut Hill that BC fans have turned on their head coach, the Eagles have suffered an embarrassing setback to Central Florida in a Conference USA stadium, and . . . um . . . I’m sorry, which team were we talking about again?

Oh, right: Boston College. Anyway, Duke will be trying to win its first road game of the season, while the Eagles are seeking their initial home victory of the autumn. This is about as weak as a college football game gets between members of an AQ conference, which is why I’m not picking a winner in this embarrassment of a game.
