I can tell you one thing; I know what I like when I see it. And what I see is a big day in college football. Oh, the girls? Yeah, they’re alright, but I’m having trouble getting a read on their personalities and whether they share my interest in role-playing games and Star Trek.
There’s plenty of regional action kicking off at noon eastern (Big 10 Football on ESPN? Whoo!), but ESS-EE-CEE-SPEED (yeawww!) makes its regular season debut in a nationally televised game on CBS (3:30 ET), when the Arkansas Razorbacks (1-1) oink their way into Tuscaloosa to take on Nick Saban’s ego and his third-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide (3-0). I’m no great college football mind, so I’ll base my thoughts on the game entirely on the above photos, which means I’ll be pulling for Alabama. And then after a nap, I’ll pull for Arkansas, if you know what I mean. I hope the people seated next to me at the bar don’t mind.
Also on tap is #9 Miami at #11 Virginia Tech at 3:30 ET. It should be a rager. Try to make sense of whether you will be able to see the game or not on ABC, ESPN or ESPNHD here, because I’m lost.
In other news, word on the street is that Tim Tebow is one of several members of the number-one-ranked Florida Gators suffering from flu-like symptoms. In fact, Tebow took a separate plane (along with the other ill players – WTF? – he should fly solo) to Lexington for their game against the Kentucky Wildcats (ESPN2, 6:00 ET).
A source close to the team confirmed late Friday night that Tim Tebow was one of several players to fly on a separate plane to Lexington from the rest of the team because he is sick with the flu. The source said that safety Major Wright was also among the players on the separate plane.
Egads! Holy Father, why hast Thou forsaken Tim? The Lord does work in mysterious ways and perhaps this is simply his way of testing the most precious lamb of his flock. Kind of like when Satan tempted Jesus with that badass violin.
Wait. I might be getting a couple of stories mixed up. To be honest, Christianity isn’t one of my strongest areas of study. Everything I know about it I learned through Metallica songs and Danzig albums. In any event, with or without the Tebowner, I don’t see Kentucky snapping their 22-game losing streak to Florida. Just a hunch.
