National Game of Disinterest (Week 11)

Pictured: the best thing about Pitt football in the last 20 years. - Andy Lyons

Most college football games are fun to watch for one reason or another. This one won't be.

We apologize for the delay in getting this week's National Game of Disinterest to you. We're scrambling as hard as we can to get out of the office in time to watch what Bill C. claims might be the biggest Thursday night of college football ever, which probabably not coincidentally features both of our National Games of Interest.

If you head over to RedCrake's always excellent TV schedule, you'll see that this week has a lot of college football goodness. In addition to tonight's games, there's an important SEC match-up and plenty of other entertaining games to see. But, as RedCrake notes, there's one game that only should only interest the "mentally deficient or self-deluded:" Notre Dame at Pitt.

Mental deficiency and self-delusion are really the only explanations for how this match-up got pitted against LSU at Alabama in the 8 p.m. time slot. Who on earth is going to watch the former meaningless match-up over the latter? Neither Notre Dame nor Pitt has been relevant since the 80s. Seriously, go check out their Wikipedia pages here and here. On second thought, don't waste your time. I'll give you the highlights from the last 20 years: Insight Bowls, blow-out losses in BCS bowls, Charlie Weiss, and one legitimately great mustache. That's about it.

These programs are so bad that their recent ACC affiliations are about the most positive things you can say about them.

Am I missing any less interesting contests? I don't think so, but please let me know in the comments.
