After taking in 12 consecutive hours of college football glory on Saturday, our brains are wired for explosion in, oh, about 7 hours.
Some of our prayers were answered over the weekend:
Appalachian State 34, #5 Michigan 32: Not that we hate Michigan for any particular reason, but holy crap do they implode under expectations. Good luck in your future endeavors, Ron English.
#9 Virginia Tech 17, East Carolina 7: Dusty doesn’t begin describe the saline-inducing assault on our eyes produced by the pre-game tribute in Blacksburg- we were barely able to keep ourselves from becoming blubbering ninnies. We got a whole lot happier, though, watching the VT offense do it’s be Notre Dame impression.
#12 Cal 45, #15 Tennessee 31: Ah, sweet ganja-wafting nectar of revenge. Seeing the gorgeous live footage of the once and future homeland made me wistful; seeing Nate Longshore, DeSean Jackson, Justin Forsett and Jahvid Best on one side of the ball for Cal made me downright giddy.
And some prayers will have to wait until tonight’s game to be answered:
For the love of all that is holy, please don’t give me an offensive box score like this again.
Please don’t grant me the unabashed joy of watching my starting quarterback tackle.
Please give me just one glimpse of future brain suregoen Myron Rolle performing corrective surgery on a wideout whose sternum has wandered a dangerous distance from his spine.
We also pray for safety from this man and his deadly rock.
