|West Virginia in their Florida Evans' voice, "Damn, Damn, Damn!"|
There is a reason why the Feds come through doors in the wee hours of the morning. Their intent is the element of surprise. Boyz are sleepin’ good with their mouths wide open and the next thing they know 11 people are standing in their bedroom and all they hear is “The party's over!” and “Let’s go!”
The West Virginia Mountaineers were on cruise control scoring crazy points on offense and playing no defense at all. They were ranked 3rd in passing yards, 7th in points scored and 112th in points against but were STILL undefeated. That was a bad combination homeboy! You knew that it was just a matter of time before the “Boyz” came through the front door. Texas Tech tore the joint off of the hinges beating them 49-14 in Lubbock!
Did they catch West Virginia sleeping or did they just welcome them to the Big 12? It was a little bit of both. Geno and Co. showed up in unassuming Lubbock thinking that they could take advantage of these good ole cowboys and got pistol whipped in the town square. What they didn’t realize is that everybody can score points in Big 12 country. Everybody is pushin’ whips with 26’s on 'em around those parts bruh!
When they decided to step out of the Big East somebody should have gotten in their ear and told them that boyz that don’t look like they’re dangerous WILL get you in the Big 12. Texas Tech is a middle of the road team in the conference but they WILL car jack you out here. Ask Oklahoma about how they tore the door off of Owen Field last year and derailed their season. Don’t try to show up in Ames, Iowa flossin’ either. Just ask Oklahoma State about that last year too! Cats like that have a tendency to get you when you least expect it.
I’m glad to see Notre Dame is still winning because that means that the delusional Irish fans have surfaced again. Let's keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! Stanford got robbed in overtime right in front of Touchdown Jesus! I'm just sayin'! Shame on you Notre Dame! Let me remind all of my friends from South Bend that we’ve seen this movie several times before and we really don’t have to stick around to watch the ending again. When Ty Willingham and Charlie Weis were there they both had the Golden Dome rolling for a hot minute too.
Ty had them 8-0 in his 1st season in 2002 before the wheels came off at Boston College. Then Charlie had them 9-3 in his 1st campaign until the transmission came out of the joint when they played teams with better athletes. Nothing has changed bruh. You're still playing with the same dudes you've been losing with. Keep in mind that you still have to travel to Norman and to LA where beat downs have been reserved for you with breakfast in bed, a facial, pedicure and a massage. Don’t trip because it’s on the house. We're glad to accommodate you!
Last week I wrote the Hot Joint entitled, "The Dull Fix" where I told you guys not to put any stock into South Carolina running the table, winning the SEC or playing for the national title even though I picked them to beat LSU on Saturday because the Tigers have been struggling. I told you that they were still South Carolina and that it was just a matter of time before somebody came through and hit them too. I told you that selling the Gamecocks was like trying to sell Noni Juice! It ain't gonna happen! They don’t have the depth to win titles homeboy because it’s South Carolina. Always remember this when you want to argue that point, in 120 years of football in Columbia, they’ve won 1 conference title and had 3 All-Americans. Stop talking about the Gamecocks!
Stay focused because it’s a long season and so many of these guys still have to play one another. Oregon(Parliement Funkadelic) still has to go to LA and party with USC and will possibly play them again in the PAC 12 title game. They also have Oregon State waiting for them in the Civil War too. Florida still has to see South Carolina, Georgia(World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party) and Florida State(huge rivalry game). Speaking of rivalry games, did you see the Sooners blow the doors off of Texas in the RED RIVER SHOOTOUT? I'm just sayin'! Alabama still has to go to Death Valley for a November 3rd appointment with LSU and possibly an SEC title game in Atlanta. Kansas State isn’t out of the woods yet because they still have dates with West Virginia, Texas Tech and Texas. Like I said earlier, OU still has Notre Dame coming through for wine and cheese. Really more whine than cheese coming from Notre Dame fans though.
This is why I love college football! It’s so much fun just watching all of the chess pieces move and like I always say, the playoffs started week 1! WARNING: Don't get caught sleepin' cuz boyz will come and get you!
My Top 10 after week 7!
4) Kansas State
5) Notre Dame
8) Florida State
9) Ohio State
10) Oregon State
Holla At Ya Boy!
