The Triumphant Return

Well after more than a month off I figure it’s about time to get back in the saddle and put some stuff up on the blog. The wedding was awesome and the honeymoon was even better, but unfortunately the end result was me being mostly out of touch with the sports world for most of November. Never fear though as I have plenty of thoughts to share and reflect as the football season winds down and basketball starts to gear up.

Thoughts on the Weekend, Week 10

Week 10 brought us college football fans some of the action that we had been craving for most of the month of October. The nation’s #1 team lost for the first time since September. The SEC featured a clash of titans that separated a contender from a pretender. And one of the little guy powers even had their BCS hopes shattered in perhaps not so surprising fashion.

Thoughts on the Weekend, Week 8

Week 8 of the college football season didn’t feature the upsets that we all love, especially in the top 10, but that doesn’t mean there wasn’t plenty to glean from it. The #1 team faced a test at home coming off of an emotional game, points were put up in Conference USA like it was Arena League, and the little guy darling went down hard on Thursday night.

Thoughts on the Weekend, Week 7

For all of the drama and excitement that last week lacked, I think this past weekend definitely made up for it. We saw probably the best game of the year so far, a top 5 team go down at home in primetime, and a couple more little guy schools continue their undefeated run. The best part? In the aftermath there is still some colossal matchups coming down the pike.
