Personal TV Schedule 10-02-10

College Football Week 5

One month down, two to go for the college football season.  The first weekend of October will bare witness to two huge games that will help shape the race for the National Championship and both are on at the same time.  However earlier in the day we have some interesting games that will shape conference races around the nation.  My Chattanooga Mocs have a bye this week after defeating Western Carolina on the road last week to reach 2-2 and 1-1 in the Southern Conference, while we face a very winnable game against The Citadel next week the week after the ranked and soaring Georgia Southern Eagles come to town in what could be a very important game for both teams.  But that is in the future, lets go to my personal television viewing schedule for tomorrow...

12 noon-3:30 p.m.
Miami Hurricanes at Clemson Tigers (primary)
Navy Midshipmen at Air Force Falcons (secondary beginning at 2:30 p.m.)
Kansas Jayhawks at Baylor Bears (blowout back-up)

Of the slate of early afternoon games, the Miami-Clemson game really stands out.  These two have had great games ever since the Hurricanes joined the ACC and I wouldn't be surprised if it happened again.  Just in case either team decides to lay an egg, cnce the Navy-Air Force game starts at 2:30 I'll be watching that until 3:30 p.m.  And for commercials and an earlier blow out back-up, the intriguing match-up between Kansas-Baylor looks view-worthy only for the fact that Baylor is on TV.

3:30 p.m.-7 p.m.
Tennessee Volunteers at LSU Tigers (primary)
Virginia Tech Hokies at North Carolina State Wolfpack (secondary, primary blowout back-up)
Wisconsin Badgers at Michigan State Spartans (secondary, secondary blowout back-up)

This really sucks for my overall college football fan side because the Vols are on their first road trip and though I don't expect them to win because I'm realistic, any national 'experts' that think LSU are ripe for an upset should be required to take an immediate drug test, however if the Vols were to get the upset I wouldn't complain.  However, the VA Tech-NC State and the Wisconsin-MSU games just scream to be viewed and if the Bayou Bengals just start crushing the Vols I'm going to switch my attention to one or both of those games.

8 p.m.-11 p.m.
Game of the Week
Stanford Cardinal at Oregon Ducks

Everyone who is an SEC fan might think I'm nuts, but the Tide are at home and Tebow isn't the Gator QB this game doesn't excite me.  The Stanford-Oregon game, on the other hand, does.  The winner becomes the clear favorite for the Pac-10 Title with only Arizona being the only really potential bump in the road to going undefeated and making a case for the BCS Championship Game.

That's all for this week, come back next week to see my personal viewing schedule or leave a comment about your viewing schedule for this week.

Personal TV Schedule 9-11-10

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.
