Football Follies 2021: NCAA week 8

Week 8 upon us…can CFBP+ breakout be far behind?

Appalachian State already knocked off #14 Coastal Carolina on Wednesday, which is one of those schadenfreude type of thinger-doos.  We’re all, like, shucks, it was fun watching the Chanticleers go to town, but also like, Take that, CCU.  Hah.  Ain’t no bag of chips.

On a serious note, we have nothing against Coastal Carolina and continue to wish them well.  We just feel their crib in Conway, SC may be situated a little too close to Ketchup Town. Continue reading “Football Follies 2021: NCAA week 8”

Football Follies 2021: NCAA week 7

Top 10 gets a Great Reset.

I think we’re about marveled out over the saga of Saban’s Retreat From College Station.  It got Texas A&M bumped all the way up to #21, so, you know.  CFBP+ and its early-season collusion squad do what they do.

The one we can’t get over quite yet is UMass finally getting within whites-of-their-eyes range and bagging a W.  Minutemen!

We are sorry to report that Navy has already succumbed to Memphis this week (Thursday night), which may have been foreseeable but is nevertheless sad.  It wasn’t a very good game for the Mids. 

Friday offers Clemson at Syracuse, for whoever’s still in that jeu d’orange, and a choice of Cal at #9 Oregon (-14) or #24 San Diego State (-10) at San Jose State in the nighttime slot.  (Update: Clemson’s up 17-14 with half of the 4Q remaining as this goes to post.)

The Ducks will be rocking cartel chic. Continue reading “Football Follies 2021: NCAA week 7”

Football Follies 2021: NCAA week 6 – Shootout!

I fear it won’t be possible to resist the siren call of #15 Coastal Carolina (-20) at Arkansas State this evening.  The Chanticleers are rapidly becoming an obsession right up there with the Minutemen, only they win a whole lot more.  (In the interim since Thursday afternoon, Coastal Carolina stomped Arkansas State 52-20.)

Not terribly convinced on the #22 Arizona State thing, but they and Stanford will have Friday night to themselves in Tempe, so it will be a nice opportunity to take a quality gander and form a sober opinion.  The Sun Devils are giving 13.

In the spirit of the “White House” soundstage now constructed in the Executive Office Building next to the White House, I’m thinking it’s about time to have football staged in front of a green screen and script the outcomes.

At least on the reality shows, they use actual, live venues instead of stages.  Reality shows are way real-er than the Biden presidency.
