It is nearly here. The Third Saturday Fourth Saturday in October. As an aside, am I the only one who finds it odd that October has FIVE Saturdays? I mean, give me a break overachiever. October 2009 is like my friend who complains that there’s not enough hours in the day to do all the work he needs to do. Work? Work sucks. Sleep, now there’s a worthwhile endeavor.
Anyway, it’s Bama week, and well, they’re ranked #1. Sort of. The Coaches think they’re the best, whilst the AP thinks they’re the second best. Either that or it’s the other way around. I didn’t really look into it that hard. Interestingly, Lane Kiffin isn’t really taking these opportunities to poke the bear as it were, possibly because he knows that Nick Saban is actually the human name for one Mr. Satan. Not the dragonball character (if you know what I’m talking about, you’re partially cool, but all geek). And he doesn’t want to lose his eternal soul for making fun of the dark prince.
Alabama to this point, hasn’t really faced too much tough competition (unless you consider a first weekend beating of Virginia Tech… of the A.C.C.!!!! to be a credible win) to this point. This, interestingly, could be the Crimson Tide’s first real test. As another aside, wtf kind of name is crimson tide? I mean, is it sort of like the clothes washing detergent but a different hue? Or does it refer to when ladies have their “monthly visitor” where they refer to “riding the crimson wave?” Either way, it kind of creeps me out. Because on one hand, you’ll end up with red laundry. And on the other… Actually, both ways you end up with red laundry.
Will Tennessee beat Alabama? I’ll tell you after Saturday, because I can usually make more informed decisions after I’ve seen the outcomes to games. Will Tennessee make a game of it? Well, Alabama denied Tennessee’s request to wear their orange jerseys, and seeing as how the only time Tennessee has won this year has been in the Orange Jersey/White Pant combo, I’ll have to guess…. I don’t know.
Seriously, am I the only one to have noticed that?
Western Kentucky – Orange Jersey, White Pants – WIN
UCLA – Orange Jersey, White Pants – LOSS
Florida – White Jersey, Orange Pants – LOSS
Ohio – Orange Jersey, White Pants – WIN
Auburn – Orange Jersey, Orange Pants – LOSS
Georgia – Orange Jersey, White Pants – WIN
So as you can see, the Orange Jersey/White Pants combo doesn’t always equate to a win, but orange pants, loss every time. That’s kind of sad though, because personally, I love the orange pants, but even going back to the Fulmer days, the orange pants (UCLA, SECCG vs. LSU) were losers.
Maybe we could get some Orange Jerseys, Orange Helmets, Orange Pants, Orange Shoes, Orange Socks, Orange Gloves, Orange Chinstraps, Orange Mouthguards, Orange Jock Straps, Orange Pads, Orange Pubes kind of thing going, and see if that helps.
I am Jon, and I approve this message.
