Week 10 college football recap.
Game of the Century My A**
That was the final score, in overtime, of the over-hyped #1 vs. #2 matchup between LSU and Alabama this past weekend.
Yes, that says a lot about the strength of the two defenses. And, yes, the game did go in overtime.
But for the so-called “Game of the Century” (as many pundits ludicrously called it–and I thought that was a ridiculous naming even prior to the game being played), I found the Tigers-Crimson Tide largely a letdown. And I am someone who appreciates great defensive play; no sport should not be all about the scoring.
Upset of the week easily had to be under-.500 Northwestern defeating #9 Nebraska, though UCLA’s narrow edging of #20 Arizona State 29-28 when the Sun Devils missed a field goal as time expired would run a close second. A couple of weeks ago after the debacle in Arizona, head coach Rick Neuheisel’s job appeared to be in definite danger. Two wins later, maybe Neuheisel has life…? It would take a bowl berth and probably a victory over USC, but he perhaps his tenure at UCLA is not on such critical life support.
Off the field…well, I don’t even want to go into the disgusting nightmare unfolding at Penn State. What a disgrace.
And in the continual soap opera of conference realignment, the Big East is now approaching many of the universities to be on its rumored target list as the conference tries to rebuild its football membership to twelve and retain its BCS status. That includes such far-ranging schools as Boise State and BYU. Hardly, “East,” though that does not bother me nearly as much as it seems to some people I’ve read. After all, what’s in a name?
