Thank God It’s Saturday: Penn State and Ohio State

If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed or follow us on Facebook. Thanks for visiting!

Ohio State and Penn State

Lots of great match ups this weekend, including the headliner of Penn State at Ohio State. It seems everyone wants Penn State to beat the Buckeyes in order to keep them from boring up the BCS Championship game — except for OSU fans, of course. Looking at this game from strictly a historical perspective, even though Penn State has been playing lights-out football this season, they don’t do well in Columbus.

In fact, they haven’t won there since 1978 and Joe Pa has an overall losing record against Ohio State (5-7-0). Should we expect more of the same tomorrow night? Well, if karma has anything to do with it, Penn State will probably get smashed by the Buckeyes and if they do, I’m going to blame this douche bag guy.

Thank God It’s Saturday – Texas and Missouri

Texas and Missouri

Texas and Mizzou headline a great weekend of college football as Chase Daniel and Jeremy Maclin head down to Austin in an attempt to knock the high-riding Longhorns down a peg or two. While Texas is coming off that huge win against Oklahoma, the Tigers are trying to recover from their surprising defeat at the hands of Oklahoma State. Mental states aside, this game has the making of a PS3-style shoot-out with both teams featuring explosive, explosive offenses.

Thank God It’s Saturday – Red River Fun

Red River Shootout

Lots of good games this weekend and the Red River Shootout kicks things off. Stoops versus Brown. McCoy versus Bradford. The Longhorn defense versus the Oklahoma offense. Hot co-eds from Oklahoma versus hot co-eds from Austin, Texas. Could you ask for anything more from a football game? There will be so much talent on the field in Dallas tomorrow, people might confuse it for an SEC game.

TGIS – Thoughts on Kentucky at Alabama

Kentucky and Alabama

From the perspective of the Alabama fan, Saturday’s game against Kentucky is little more than a trap game. If they avoid the post-Georgia letdown, the Tide should roll — that seems to be the consensus anyway. As for Kentucky, this game represents a barometer to see where the undefeated Wildcats stand in regards to the SEC hierarchy. If Kentucky can survive Tuscaloosa without embarrassing themselves, it could be another good football season in Lexington — something UK fans should never, ever get used to.

Remember, this isn’t basketball.

But if you look a little closer, you might find some surprising elements that should be considered. First off all, if you are Kentucky fan (guilty), take some solace in the fact Bama had a slight letdown against Tulane after beating Clemson to open the season. Coming off the Georgia destruction, the Tide are certainly under a letdown warning; but it goes even further than that. Look at Nick Saban’s last two games against Kentucky when he was at LSU:

Thank God It’s Saturday – Week 5

Bama and UGA

We all know what this is for — our look at the upcoming weekend of college football and some of the games you should be paying attention to. The biggest game of the weekend is in Athens, leading us to our first preview.

Alabama at Georgia – 7:45/6:45 Central on ESPN
Beware of blackouts with this one as Alabama invades the confines of Sanford Stadium. Nick Saban’s coming to town and he’s bringing Glen Coffee and Mark Ingram with him. They’ll be met by the Great Flying Moreno and a bunch of black jerseys. The showmanship for this game as been entertaining. Let’s hope the game lives up to the hype. Keys for Georgia — pressuring John Parker Wilson into making mistakes and stopping the run (obviously). This game also features a match-up of two fantastic freshman receivers in AJ Green of Georgia and Julio Jones of Alabama.

Thank God It’s Saturday – Week 4

Thank God It’s Saturday – Week 3

USC Shorts

There’s a lot of college football to watch this weekend, even with Hurricane Ike interfering the state of Texas’ football slate. The game getting all the national attention is the Navy at Duke and ESPN is pulling out all the coverage stops it can think of to bring you every aspect of Duke versus Navy you can think of.

There’s also a random meeting of the state school from Ohio and that one California school famous for their condoms; although, the hype surrounding this game is surprisingly lacking. It’s so bad, the MSM has completely missed the boat on Chris “Beanie” Wells and his questionable availability. OK, I think I’ve made my point.
