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

We’ve managed to make it to Tuesday, so let’s see if we’re doing any better today than we’ve been doing since Saturday. As you know, my SEC Power Poll and BlogPoll ballots have been cast scrapped, I have taken you lacked the will to take you around the SEC, and I have tried failed in my attempt to care about the national games of interest, but today is the day. I can feel it. It’s time to overcome adversity and give the national game of disinterest its due. Admittedly, Saturday stunk, but, as was pointed out in one of the comment threads, tomorrow is another day, so we can do this, because we’re good enough, we’re smart enough, and, doggone it, people like us.

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

Yeah, we both expected this, didn’t we? I mean, it’s the national game of disinterest; I can’t bring myself to care about it on a good day, and today is not a good day. I remain today where Rhett was when he left Scarlett; I just don’t give a damn in the wake of the most excruciating Georgia loss since the 2008 Alabama game. You want a national game of disinterest? Fine; try Idaho State at Georgia, a game that pits two eerily similar teams.

This week, we should have been talking about the end of the trend and the turn of the worm. We should have been talking about having won three of the last seven and two of the last four in a rivalry that had become a rivalry again. Instead, I find myself quoting Jack Rudolph’s allusion to "Merrily We Roll Along" from "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip" and listening to a lot of Drive By Truckers songs while wondering whether everything will be awful forever and nothing will ever be good again.

I’ll try again tomorrow and see whether I’m any closer to poking my head out from under the covers to see if I can catch a glimpse of the sun. I am not sanguine for the prospects of this anything positive occurring on Wednesday ever.

Go ‘Dawgs!
