Ladies and Gentlemen –
I hope that you all had a great Thanksgiving and successfully recovered from your Aunt Edna’s “homemade” cranberry sauce that tasted like a combination of power steering fluid and hair jelly.
But enough about that…
It’s the final week of College Football and that means only one thing…
It’s time to decide the Conference Championships
Buckle those chin straps tight…
Enjoy your Picks….
POST GAME COMMENTARY
Last Week Your Favorite College Football Prognosticator was a pitiful (And I do mean pitiful) 40 and 16 or 71%. That leaves the CFB Wizard at 698 and 190 or 79% for the 2012 College Football Season.
There are worse things I guess….
I could be eating your Aunt Edna’s Thanksgiving “leftovers”
COLLEGE FOOTBALL NEWS
TENNESSEE: To often a Coach that fills in for a departing Coach may not deliver the results that the fan base is accustom too. But not only did Coach Chaney led the Volunteers to a badly needed victory over the Kentucky Wildcats this past Saturday, but he showed us all something far more important.
Many of you may not be aware of the sitcom in the late 80’s and early 90’s called “Life Goes On”
The lead character in that series “Corky” (pictured below) seemed to have disappeared after the show went off the air in 1993.
But in the immortal words of Paul Harvey…..
Now for the rest of the story
It seems that “Corky” with the aid of some prescription glasses and hair plugs reemerged as the winning Coach of the Tennessee – Kentucky game as Coach “Chaney”
What is the lesson to be learned here?
You can be anything you want to be with a little corrective surgery
COLORADO: It was announced this past week that the Colorado Buffalos were searching for a “new” head football coach and I thought….
GEORGIA: I bet all those people that wanted to fire Coach Richt at the beginning of last season must feel pretty stupid about now.
Well, do you?
THE BIG TEN CONFERENCE: Conference Commissioner “Big Jim” Delany held a news conference this past week to announce that the “Big Ten” conference would be adding the following universities to their conference in 2013:
Rutgers – University of Maryland – University of Maine – University of Southern Maine – University of New Hampshire – Plymouth State University – University of Vermont – Vermont Technical College – and the New England Culinary Institute.
Commissioner Delaney went on to say….
“Although we will keep the traditional title of the Big Ten Conference we will henceforth be known as the BIG 88 Conference and we will not stop our conference expansion until we have joined every junior and or technical college in the northeast.”
ARKANSAS: My beloved Razorback faithful take heart…..
In the Holy name of Lance Alworth, I promise you that Arkansas will be back
So Keep the Faith
But as a side note….
I think before Bobby Petrino goes to Auburn the Arkansas faithful should be allowed to cover his personal business with peanut butter and pitch his dumbass in the cage with the Hogzilla mascot.
EDITORS NOTE: You do know that Bobby Petrino is going to Auburn right?
And you want to know why?
Because that’s who “former” Auburn Trustee Bobby Louder wants as head coach, that’s why…
AUBURN: Former Tiger Coach Gene Chizik is set to release the follow on book to his widely popular book following the Tigers 2010 National Championship entitled “All In: Auburn’s 2010 Championship Season”
His newest book is called “All Out: Bobby Louder is a King Size D-Bag” and is expected to be on the shelves before Christmas
SOUTH CAROLINA: The quote of the week comes from a member of the CFB Wizard staff…
“The South Carolina Gamecocks have an Alabama mouth with a Vanderbilt trophy case”
EDITORS NOTE: Enough said….
SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA: For the past two years every National Sports Media outlet in the country was touting the “mighty” Trojans of Southern California as the “2012 National Champions” with the “next” Heisman Trophy winner.
Ok, I’m sorry I can’t stop giggling…….
Sorry that was “Lame” of me….
OHIO STATE: Yippee, you finished the season “undefeated” now go home and be quite tattoo boy because you aren’t going to a bowl game this year. Thank you
ARKANAS MONTICELLO: What the hell Boll Weevils…………….
I picked you to win almost every single week and you finish the season at 1 and 9?
I don’t have to words to describe my utter disappointment
MIAMI: The “U” took another U turn this season and turned themselves around 360 degrees
FLORIDA: I never should have doubted the Mighty Gators last week…..
They may be the best team in the Southeastern Conference and that’s saying something
TENNESSEE PART II: With all the hype surrounding the Kentucky hire of Coach Stoops from Florida State and the buzz that has been created at Arkansas and other prominent universities. It has been reported that the University of Tennessee has given up attempting to lure a “big name” coach to Knoxville and instead has decided to make an offer to the fat kid from the once popular television sitcom “What’s Happening” to Coach the Volunteers next year.
I can’t remember his name, sorry
