We're still waiting, college football.
Debbie R We rate teams according to the super-scientific "Iron Sheik" scale.
Still waiting on that "Holy shit!" weekend of games where some foundational pieces of the Top 25 get shaken up and we see the earth shift a little bit in this brave new world of college football where all roads lead to a post season playoff, albeit a miniature four-teamer.
(This is where I gaze longingly at a cartoon "thought bubble" over my head with a bracket for a 16 team playoff, and a tear slides down my face like the Native American in the old commercial where he sees some regular American folks tossing trash on the ground in our great nation.)
This weekend was flush with opportunity -- spunky, revived West Virginia hosting Oklahoma, Mike Leach hosting a somewhat overrated Oregon, Auburn traveling to take on Bill Snyder at night, and of course, Clemson taking on the Jameis-less Seminoles.
In the end, we got a little bit of entertaining football, numerous opportunities to make fun of Jameis Winston, another Dabo meltdown, and the rankings all pretty much look status quo, save Dan Mullen and Mississippi State finally beating LSU (in Baton Rouge at night, no less!).
Thankfully, even ho-hum college football is still college football, and we were given a few nuggets that will make you chuckle from the weekend.
