Don't Bet On It!: National Game of Disinterest (Week 4)

Am I the only one who's already pumped for this weekend's game against the Commies? The coaches are trying to act like last year's post-game altercation doesn't provide any additional motivation, but, as Mr. Sanchez pointed out in his interview with Anchor of Gold, you're crazy if you don't think emotions will be running high. So what are we supposed to do between now and kick-off? It probably wouldn't hurt to start prepping for the game by listening to this week's podcast, which I hear pairs well with Gordo's Cheese Dip. You might also take a minute to figure out who Kyle thinks the country's best teams are. If you haven't already, you should definitely help us pick out a t-shirt for this year's Goat Roast. There are also some pretty darn good football games starting tonight, which RedCrake has helpfully charted here, the significance of which DavetheDawg has explained here, and the outcomes of which I have predicted here and here. But the one thing you absolutely should not waste your time doing is watching the National Game of Disinterest, and this week that game is...

Temple at Penn State

Even in the best of years, this in-state showdown has little meaning, but this year things are even worse. Temple is 1-1, having lost to an awful Maryland team, and, worst of all, they're coached by former Florida Offensive Coordinator Steve "Dive Master" Addazio. Penn State finally got back on its feet by beating Navy after back-to-back losses to Ohio (Ohio) and Virginia, but they still aren't good enough to compete for anything meaningful this season. Perhaps you're thinking that these teams are so bad that the game might be fun to watch for a laugh, like a bad horror movie. But, alas, both of these teams are decidedly average except for Penn State's apparent inability to run and Temple's apparent inability to pass. On the bright side, it's on at the same time as the Mizzou-South Carolina (in Columbia, fyi), so it's not like you would've been tempted to tune in anyway.
