    College Football

    Which teams do you follow? My #10RANKED WVU MOUNTAINEERS are whoopin' up on Eastern Carolina 56 to 15 right now. Lee Corso (who I have always referred to as stupid- a$$, NOW he is a football genius, LOL) has picked us to play for the National Championship so it is a very exciting year. We don't get a lot to get excited about here so a good football season is really something special. Yikes, K.J. Harris just broke the alltime single game rushing record for WVU and the Big East with 337 yards!!!

    We are supposed to play Central Florida at the Citrus Bowl next week. I wonder if Hurricane Frances will change that?

    Mathman, how did Michigan State lose to Rutgers????

    Well, I'm not Mathman but to answer your question about how MSU lost to Rutgers.....Rutgers played better overall and also didn't have players keep keeling over from overheating today! MSU lost a player to that about every third play or something it felt like!! I watched that game and it was quite a good game. Shocker for sure!

    I follow the OSU Buckeyes who whooped up on the University of Cincinnati today and beat them 27-6 (normally I am a UC fan too but I always root for OSU no matter who they play!). I wish I had been able to watch the game but I had to settle for random updates while I was at work today. The game was over before I was able to get home from there. Ahh, at least they won though! :D

    Congrats on your team doing so well Piel!!

    Though I'm not a football fan, I went to see the Nebraska Cornhuskers with my dad tonight. (I've dragged him to enough skating events....I felt it only fair ) I'd gone once before, in 1984, in a blizzard, but he assured me that in September, this wouldn't happen. :D

    Anyway, Nebraska's defense sort of fell apart in the third quarter (can't tell by the final score, but trust me, it did) and the overly large gentleman next to me went for his bottle of nitro! He seemed okay at the end of the game, though, but sheesh.

    We saw the Rutgers score on the scoreboard and were wondering what the heck happened. Thanks for the explanation!

    No surprise here, about the Rutgers juggernaut. Rutgers invented the game, playing in the first ever intercollegiate football contest in 1869 (Rutgers 6, Princeton 4).

    Since they did not have uniforms, the Rutgers team (25 on a side) wore a red scarf wrapped into a turban on their heads -- the first football helmets -- so you could tell who was who.

    Johnny-come-lately Michigan State Agricultural College didn't win a national championship until 1952. You call that tradition?

    One trend that is becoming increasingly obvious under the BCS format for determining the national championship, is how most of the contenders are watering down their pre-season schedules to avoid taking a chance on losing a game in the early going. Michigan used to play Notre Dame (back when Notre Dame was good), USC, Nebraska, maybe Miami. This season they have Miami of Ohio, Notre Dame (now), and San Diego State. They may be undefeated all the way up to the Ohio State game without having played anybody.

    But watch out for the Wayne State University Warriors! We recently changed our name to Warriors from Tartars. Nobody knew what a Tartar was, thinking it had something to do with fish sauce or bad teeth.

    We play in the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference.

    Now it's true that we lost yesterday to Northwood, 70-3, giving up 758 yards. And we've got our hands full with perennial powerhouses Mercyhurst, Findlay, Hillsdale and Ashland on the schedule. Still, Go, Warriors!

    Football really isn't our thing. Although you would think with a student body of 32,000 we ought to be able to pick up a decent team sometimes just by walk-ons. Our big sports, that we are national contenders in, are fencing and glee club. (True.)
