You just completed your final weekend without either major college or professional football for the year.
Say “hello” to not getting anything done on the weekends until spring.
We get some really good college football games already this first weekend. TCU vs Minnesota, Washington vs. Boise State, Louisville vs. Auburn, Arizona State vs. Texas A&M, and Wisconsin vs. Alabama are a pretty good slate for the Week 1.
There seem to be three or four major college football stories to follow this season.
Can Ohio State repeat as National Champions?
Can Jim Harbaugh return Michigan to dominance?
Can the SEC return to it’s traditional spot atop the college football world by winning another National Championship?
Can we combine the rosters of Colorado, Colorado State, and Air Force to make one team that could even get ranked?
Okay, that last one might not be on the national radar.
Probably just mine.
A week after trying to get Robert Griffin III killed, the Washington Redskins have announced that he will be benched for the always average Kirk Cousins.
When Griffin’s head clears he’s going to be really mad.
Did you see American golfer Brian Harman made not one but two holes-in-one in his final round at The Barclays, which was won by Jason Day?
Harman finished 30th in the final standings.
He may never be one of the great players of all time but you can’t take those two plays away from him.
He’s like Eli Manning.
Do you know how hard it is to play quarterback in the NFL?
Matt Cassel, Kellen Clemens, and Matt Schaub all still have jobs.
You barely have to do anything productive and if you can do even a mediocre job you have job security.
