(The sports page hasn't been updated since April. I'm going to go ahead and post this here.)
So week 1 of college football is back and I finally got to us the line I came up with months ago. The plan is that I walk in on the middle of a conversation where someone mentions the Virginia Tech tragedy, I say "It wasn't that bad," and after I get a few looks of utter disgust I say, "Oh, I thought you were talking about the Peach Bowl." Is that so wrong? Everyone else seemed to think it a bit too soon. Oh well.
Michigan sure is a cocky school. They think they're just the greatest team on earth. They go on and on about their most wins in college football and their supreme historical win record. Now they have a new record for their books. Not only was this the first time in their amazing history that they stooped to playing a Div IAA opponent, it was also the first time an AP ranked team has ever lost to a Div IAA school. Congratualations, Michigan. You deserved it. Oh, and you had no business being ranked 5.
GA Tech rolled the Irish and I couldn't help but be impressed by Tech's offensive line. I have no love of GT. In fact, I think someone on the radio summed up my feelings pretty well. Back before the US invaded Iraq, this radio caller said that if Georgia Tech were playing Iraq, he'd be cheering for the University of Iraq. I couldn't agree more. Go Saddam! Beat Tech! Flaaaaag Boy! But man, that line looked good.
And once again, UGA got to prove that some up-and-coming school just wasn't as good as they thought they were. Nice explosive offense, Okie State.
