College Football Week 11

Well after a week where I basically only looked in on college football from time to time since the Vols and Mocs were either off TV or not playing a competitive game, it's time to get back into interest.  This will be my first opportunity to see Tyler Bray start for the Vols while the Mocs host their last home game of the year with a FCS playoff berth still a possibility.  But that's just me, however the world of college football been quiet this week...*pause for laughter*...but really if there was any evidence that these payment conversations took place someone would have released a tape.  Seriously its 2010, if I was recuiter or someone else I would cover my butt by taping every conversation with a recruit, but that's just me bring common sense to this whole Cam Newton controversy.  But on to my viewing scheduling for tomorrow...

12 noon-3:30 p.m.
Mississippi Rebels at Tennessee Volunteers

The Vols are looking for their first SEC win of the season, along with Coach Dooley's first overall, and are dwelling in the cellar of the SEC East.  Into town comes the Rebels, who dwell in the cellar of the SEC West, with a good QB who may or may not play because of injury.  If Rebel QB Masoli is out then the Vols have a great chance to win the game behind freshman QB Tyler Bray; if Masoli starts and plays the entire game then the Rebels should be favored; if Masoli starts because can't finish, then it's either team's game.  The Volunteers must win out to be bowl eligible just as the Rebels need to do, so a bowl elimination game in the 2nd week of November.

3:30 p.m.-7 p.m.
Georgia Bulldogs at Auburn Tigers *primary*
San Diego State Aztecs at TCU Horned Frogs *blowout back-up*

Will the Tigers come out looking to take their frustration over the past week on the Bulldogs or will their heads be in the wrong place allowing the Bulldogs to get the huge upset on the road.  If Auburn wins they go to Atlanta to face the winner of South Carolina-Florida, if the Dawgs win then LSU needs the Crimson Tide to win in two weeks to punch their own ticket, that's if Arkansas doesn't upset them.  In case the Dawgs-Tigers becomes a blowout, I'll check out how the top non-BCS team is fairing against a surprising Aztec team.

7 p.m.-11 p.m.
South Carolina Gamecocks at Florida Gators *maybe*
Oregon Ducks at California Golden Bears *maybe*

I haven't decided if I want to watch any games after the Dawg-Tigers game.  While the Gamecock-Gator game will decide the SEC East, I'm just not that interested to be honest since the Gamecocks have tailed off from where they were at the beginning of the year and I don't like the Gators.  I could check out the Ducks, but I believe even though its at Cal where the Bears are tough it'll be over at the half.

That's all for this week, come back next week to see my personal viewing schedule or leave a comment about what you're going to watch this week in college football.

College Football Week 6

What can I say about last week, stunning amazement followed by stunning disbelief.  The Vols almost, almost got the victory against LSU only for inexperience and pure chaos to come in and give Les Miles one of the biggest gift wins in his career.  Also it turns out my decision not to tune into the Alabama-Florida game last week was a wise one and my tuning in to Oregon-Stanford was justified. But while last week had some great potential games occuring at the same time all throughout the day, this week after the late afternoon games I might not be watching any football come prime time.  Shocking I know.  Also I'll be interested in how the Chattanooga Mocs perform against The Citadel on the road, a week before homecoming against the Georgia Southern Eagles, that game will be on the radio starting at 2 p.m. so I'll be playing with various media at the same time.

12:21 p.m.-4 p.m.
Tennessee Volunteers at Georgia Bulldogs
Indiana Hoosiers at Ohio State Buckeyes (blowout back-up)
Baylor Bears vs. Texas Tech Red Raiders (blowout back-up #2)

In and around Chattanooga, the Tennessee-Georgia game is the biggest college football game of the year.  This year, the luster is off as the Dawgs come in with a 4 game losing streak and the Vols are in the middle of a rebuilding year coming off a stunning upset turn loss against LSU.  The Dawgs are favored, but if the Vols come out with confidence this could come down to the wire and anything can happen, so I'm betting that I'll only tune into the Indiana-Ohio State game during commercials or at halftime.  The rest of the early games, except for Baylor-Texas Tech, just don't interest me.  The Bears coming off that huge, margin of victory, win over Kansas and Tech under Tuberville could be interesting to view if things in my other two games just become really one-sided.

4 p.m.-7 p.m.
Game of the Week

Michigan State Spartans at Michigan Wolverines (primary)

Texas A&M Aggies vs. Arkansas Razorbacks (secondary)
Elon Phoenix at Appalachian State Mountaineers (SoCon interest)

While all these games start at 3:30, I'll only be able to watch them starting at 4 since that is when Tennessee-Georgia will most likely be over.  The game I want to watch is Spartans-Wolverines, to me this is bigger than Alabama-South Carolina or any other game today.  If the Spartans win then they become the threat to Ohio State, if Shoelace Robinson leds the Wolverines over their in-state rival then they'll be the threat to Ohio State.  Basically the winner of this game joins Ohio State as the contender for the Big Ten Title.  Texas A&M-Arkansas looks like it might have shootout written all over it, if the MSU-Michigan game becomes a blowout then this one has the potential to be close to the end.  And a lot of you might wonder why I have an FCS game on my list, well basically the Mocs lost to Appy State by 1 AND have yet to face Elon.  The Mocs are fighting to at least finish in the top 3 of the conference this year and so as a fan of the Mocs I want to know how this big SoCon match-up goes.

7 p.m.-11 p.m.
Oregon State Beavers at Arizona Wildcats (maybe)
East Carolina Pirates at Southern Miss Golden Eagles (maybe)

To be honest, I might not watch anything during this time slot.  These two games are the only thing at interest me right now.  I'm not really into the FSU-Miami game and LSU-Florida could be a unwatchable.

That's all for this week, come back next week to see my personal viewing schedule or leave a comment about what you're going to watch this week in college football.

College Football Week 3

Well its the third week of the college football season and we've seen Boise State look like it might have all but sown up a place in the BCS Championship Game to seeing James Madison University throw a wrench into those travel plans.  The ACC was embarrassed against BCS conference opponents, the SEC East race became very interesting, and my hometown Chattanooga Mocs had another Top 5 FCS team come back and defeat them for the second consecutive game being outscored by a total of 5 points (sigh).  But on to my personal television view schedule for tomorrow...

12 noon-3:30 pm
Arkansas Razorbacks at Georgia Bulldogs (primary)
Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets at North Carolina Tar Heels (secondary)
Maryland Terrapins at West Virginia Mountaineers (blow out back-up)

The Razorbacks passing attack will test the Dawg's defense that wasn't able to stop Marcus Lattimore last week, but the question is came the Razorback defense play up to SEC talent?  This interdivisional SEC match-up is to me the biggest game of the early afternoon.  My secondary game could have been my primary game if not for Georgia Tech laying an egg against Kansas last week, but if my primary game becomes a blowout I'll check out the Jackets-Tar Heels more than during commercials.

3:30 pm-7 pm
Florida Gators at Tennessee Volunteers

Last week the Vols were able to be competive against Oregon for a full half and a part of the third quarter, also Florida started off slowly before polishing off South Florida in the 2nd half.  Could this be a sign of an upset or maybe the Vols competing hard against the Gators into the 4th quarter?  Don't really know, Coach Dooley has said and after looking back at it I sorta agree that the young Vols sorta gave up after Matt Simms' pick six.  The Volunteers have 18 freshmen in their two deep, so while I hope they'll be more competive this week I don't see a victory but I suspect we'll get a better performance further into the game.

7 pm-10 pm
Clemson Tigers at Auburn Tigers (primary)
Notre Dame Fighting Irish at Michigan State Spartans (blow out back-up)

The Battle of the Tigers should be a good back and forth game from beginning to end, so I don't suspect I'll fully turn my attention to the Irish-Spartan match-up.  I'm not picking Clemson to win this game because they're from the ACC, which after last week is a fairly weak BCS conference and need a big win to earn some respect back.  If Clemson wins this game I think they become a really important player in the ACC, if Auburn wins then they could start to be a player in the SEC West.  This is going to be a really Big Game, can't wait.

College Football Week 2

While ESPN is calling this "Monster Saturday," I'm just calling it Week 2.  Auburn and Mississippi State was an interesting game last night, I was expecting a high scoring affair and got surprised with a 17-14 game.  Tonight, I'm watching area high school football thanks to our local cable company as the Soddy Daisy Trojans, where my mother teaches, takes on their rivals the Red Bank Lions.  Also I'm a little down because Coach Pearl decided to be an idiot by lying to the NCAA during an investigation...frustrating to say at least.  But on to my personal schedule for Saturday September 11.

12 noon to 3:30 p.m.
Georgia Bulldogs at South Carolina Gamecocks (primary)
Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets at Kansas Jayhawks (secondary)
Memphis Tigers at East Carolina Pirates (Blowout back-up)

My focus early in the afternoon is a big SEC East match-up between the Dawgs' and Gamecocks, winner becomes the Gators' primary challenger for the division title.  However A.C. Green out of this game, a little bit of luster is off and the Gamecocks gain an advantage.  I think it'll be close, so I don't expect to change the channel except during commercials when I'll check out the Yellow Jacket's triple option offense against the Jayhawks.  In case of a blow out in both of those games, my third option is to watch a potentially big C-USA battle between Memphis and East Carolina, especially after that Hail Mary ending.

3:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Game of the Week
Miami Hurricanes at Ohio State Buckeyes

While I'll flip to other games during commercials, I'm not going to turn away from this match-up.  First off, to compare this game to the classic seven-years ago would be a joke and anyone who pretends to do so is in need of a doctor's visit.  Second, the QBs for each school are going to playing not only for the win, but probably also the lead in the Heisman race as much as Week 2 can give you.  Unlike the other "Monster" match-ups ESPN is promoting, this one likes like it my deliever a good game.

7 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.
Oregon Ducks at Tennessee Volunteers

Unless this gets really ugly for the Volunteers, I don't plan on switching the channel and frankly there really isn't another game in this time frame I'm interested in.  If the Vols are able to keep it close into the 4th quarter, then I believe we have a chance to score an upset but I think the Ducks will win.  Primarily, I hope the Vols are able to keep this game competitve deep into the 2nd half and secondly, I hope they win.  The Ducks have more depth than the Vols, what happens when you have three different head coaches in as many years that doesn't involve one of those coach having major health issues or emergency.

Well that is a look at my plans for Saturday, talk to you all later.
