A great day for college football yesterday.
My alma mater, Kansas State, scored two touchdowns in the fourth quarter to beat UCLA, 30-22, and North Dakota State, from just a couple of hours down the road, shocked Kansas, 6-3, in Lawrence.
I actually got to watch the K-State game; ABC was showing the Michigan-UConn game since Minnesota is in its Big Ten region, but thankfully ESPN2 stepped up and had the Wildcats. So not only did I get to watch K-State, I got to watch K-State in HD. It was a great afternoon, although as always I miss actually being at the games.
Great game to watch, but a note to all high school and junior college quarterbacks: There’s a job for you at Kansas State. Please call them and get recruited.
The post-game commentary for the Michigan game was hilarious, though. All you heard from ESPN was how huge a win that was for the Michigan program. Actually, no, that shows how pathetic Michigan is right now, when a win over Connecticut is considered a potential turning point for your program when you’re supposed to be competing for national titles. It just shows how far over the cliff they’ve fallen in the last few years.
Probably will take a break from football today and look forward to Boise State/Virginia Tech tomorrow night. That should be an excellent game.
