Yes, my friends, it’s time to rekindle some hatred-based good times from our childhoods.  Ain’t that always a hoot?  No Euro-Lesser Footy, as they’s on international break, yet again.  SIGH.

Michigan State at Ohio State (Noon, Fox)

These teams are right next to one another in the rankings (12/13), but the spread is a mighty -17.5.  So Vegas thinks Sparty is gon’ reap some theeeeeee vengeance for being knocked out of the playoffs by the Iowans last week.  We shall see.

Oklahoma State at Iowa State (Noon, ABC/ESPN2)

Another tasty matchup, this time with the post-Bedlam mad team on the road.  But wait, can’t the Cyclones also be pissed off, having fallen just short in they valiant comeback bid at the Cousinfuckers last week?  Or are we just treating them like the roadkill we expect them to turn right back to?

Georgia at Auburn (3:30, CBS)

Finally, a CBS spotlight match that isn’t a turd.  Still not sure Aubie has enough offensive weaponry to truly challenge the ‘Dawgs, but this will be a massively holstile environment and a 4-quarter physical battle royale.  Good teevee.

Iowa at Wisconsin (3:30, ABC)

I hate recommending two goddamned B1G fixtures the same week, especially when one is this vanilla…but it has its intrigue.  Bucky Badger could still have a playoff argument (albeit weak) if it wins out, and Iowa has the last, best chance to stop same before the league championship.

West By God Virginia at Kansas State (3:30, ESPN2)

Wish to God and Sonny Jeebus I saw a gambling angle on this’un, so I’d watch MOAR of it.  Both sides are middle of the pack, but give me Wild Man Holgorsen against Undead Bill Snyder any day of the week.  This should have been a Friday night matchup or sommet.

Washington State at Utah (5:30, PAC12)

This is the kind of game that Wazzu needs to start winning in order to be taken seriously, on a national basis.  Yes, it’s a tough challenge for a team without overwhelming talent…but it needs to get done.  If so, would set up a high-stakes Apple Cup.

Alabama at Mississippi State (7:00, ESPN)

If anyone is gonna trip up Roll Damn Tide before the UGA meet and greet (they always take War Damn Eagle 100% serious), it would likely be the Cowbells in Starkville, under the lights.  But I wouldn’t bet on it.

Notre Dame at Miami (8:00, ABC)

Here’s your sterling main event.  Basically “win and you’re in” the playoffs for the Fucking Dickhole Irish (and I have money on them at -3, think they will win by double digits and hope to have jinxed them).  Miami still has to win out, ACC title game v. Clemson included.  They won’t.

TCU at Oklahoma (8:00, Fox)

What a fantastic undercard this makes!  Not enough is made of how good Bloodeyes are, and they absolutely can go to Norman and win.  Especially if Boomer Sooner still gots a sugar high from their 62-52 (not a misprint) Bedlam victory in Stillwater.  Okie wants a shootout, TCU wants to grind.  Whoever imposes their will will likely get the W, and hopefully (Hippo is shameless Big 12 promoter) a playoff berth.  Shit, didn’t mean that to come out so rapey-sounding.

Arizona State at UCLA (9:30, PAC12)

I realize this ain’t much of a tweaker option, but tis all I am left to offer.  Good thing the rest of the slate is so badass.  Get some sleep for NFL Week 10.

Got all the laundry and dishes done. Have a YUGE stockpot of turkey stock working its way up to a simmer. Little man is sawing toothpicks in the next room. I’ve got an ice cold six-pack in the fridge, a wonderfully strong sativa, and some decent muscle relaxers on hand. ND/Miami kicks off in 10. It’s a wonderful night to be alive!

I am at a fundraiser for my kid’s high school. For reasons Indo not know there is an autographed Jordan Reed jersey available. Does anyone want me to bid on it, and if so to what amount? If I win I will pay the shipping.

Also there is a huge amount of Lions gear available. No autographs though. Probably because Orlovsky ran out the back of the end zone looking for a pen.

Did iowa end up with less than 100 total yards? Only defensive touchdowns, and -35 yards on sacks apparently

If Auburn beats Alabama (if they haven’t played, I don’t know), they automatically get into the playoff, do not pass Go, do not connect $200, right?

Iron Bowl ends the season.
Still not sure that gets them in tho even with a win.

I think they play sometime in the future, if cbs is to be trusted. And if they win they would face GA again in the champ game.

Can’t wait for georgia to not be punished by this loss at all because “it’s an sec game, so tough; and it was at auburn, so tough”

Florida State should be disbanded and Jimbo checked into rehab.
3-6 with that talent?

Now that was an inspired play call by Aubie.
Victory sealed.

Pretty sure the cbs announcers just equated, emphatically, that a WR screen is the same thing as a timeout in basketball which is the same thing as a QB sneak.

Bad matchup for UGa.
Especially playing from behind now.

So I just spent the better part of the past half hour trying to flush my neighbor’s dog (who hates and is afraid of me….she hates needles) out of the woods and into the house.

That was fun in more or less sub freezing temps.

Stupid dog.

Many derps for the Dawgs.

Derpy Dawgs is not a good franchise opportunity. Deputy Dawg is the mascot.

My stream of this Georgia game is broken it seems. It just keeps showing the same replay over and over and over again of a play which is clearly an incomplete pass. Guess I’ll refresh.

So…Hodor headed to Europe for stem-cell treatment. Okay! I’m starting to wonder if he’s going to end up losing his goddamn arm.

Senor Weaselo

Maybe he’ll trade for a German-engineered arm?

Horatio Cornblower

Yeah, that seems like it might be more than a torn labrum.

Hey, the Stillers are losing to the Niners.
Nope, sorry….Iowa/Wisconsin.

Just demolished a splendid turkey dinner, muted the TV and opted instead to listen to Santana Live At The Fillmore East from 1968. Much the best.

Just dropped 50 on Jorja to win. Odds were at 3.75 to 1. That’s metric.

You might have picked the wrong day.

That missed field goal does not make me happy.

Georgia in a big, must-win game is never a good bet.

New rule: you can’t call a timeout before the last 5 minutes of the sencond and fourth quarters.
