It’s that time of month again, where the reserves of ice cream and kleenex in the house are dwindled to dangerously low levels. Oh, it’s not that time of month? It’s roundtable time of the week? Oh. That’s better (barely). Here we go again, this week hosted by Loser With Socks. And, off we go.
1. In a perfect world, what time would your UCLA Kick-off start?
First off, I’m not exactly sure what I would need with my UCLA necessarily (except for the seemingly endless supply of hot chicks), or why I would need to kick it off, but I digress. A Perfect world? The game would start right now. Why? Because I want to watch it right now. And it would keep going until next week’s game, which would also start at my whim and fancy. While we’re at it, I’d like to be fed grapes by toga-wearing cheerleaders (from both squads, because say what you will about UCLA, they have some fine ass cheerleaders).
Man, this perfect world thing is great. Can I also get Marisa Miller to come by my luxury suite to give me a back rub?
No no, the back rub was for ME, get to it woman!
But honestly, living in California, I think the timing of the game is pretty much just about right. It’s on a holiday, so that the traffic should only be “terrible” (upgraded from “worst traffic ever”), and the 5pm start is nice because East Coasters can watch it comfortably in prime time, and I get to go to the Rose Bowl and park on the golf course before it gets dark. I’m not sure how the driving out of there is going to go though.
2. Sometimes doing the right thing is tough. Sometimes we have to choose between bad and worse. I have known snipers that get bothered even though what they did was absolutely right. It seems being a coach would have some similar circumstances. Did you think that Coach Fulmer and staff ever lose any sleep over their choices?
Let’s be honest here. Losing sleep is probably nothing to the coach. Let’s just make sure he’s not making any decisions to lose his appetite. Then we’ve got to worry. If the Papa weren’t able to eat food, everyone better go ahead and dust off that Y2K bunker, because some bad juju majumbo’s about to go down. I mean, I suppose as long as the coaches aren’t themselves ordering anyone to be sniped, I don’t see what they would lose any sleep over. And anyway, can we really compare the stress of a sniper to that of a guy that tells other people how to play a game? I’m pretty sure it’s not related.
3. Nick Saban is going to start 10 freshman against Clemson. Why is he doing this and did he just buy another year of grace from the Red Elephant Club?
Nick Saban is the guy with the good hair right? I don’t know whether he’s being strategic or not, but I think it might be his own way of screwing over Mike Shula one last time by not playing any of his players. Because if there’s one thing we know about Nick Saban, he likes bending people over. Enjoy your coach Bama!
4. Critique Lou Holtz as a ESPN “analyst”. Irish and Cock Homer or scripted live rassler?
It’s actually funny that he just doesn’t care anymore. He’s got the contract, and he’s already in the studio, and there’s no Trev Alberts to kick around, so Lou Holtz has now completely embraced his homerism. Calling South Carolina the “best defense in the league” and stating that Notre Dame will win 10+ games this season? Classic. In fact, I’m glad that he isn’t picking my team to win, because the Holtz spittle curse is way worse than the Madden or SI curses.
