One of my dear friends explained to me: “Jaybird. College Football is not about the players. It’s about the system.”
So I went and googled “Gus Malzahn“.
Looking at his webpage, I realized that I also needed to google “Gene Chizik“.
So, Friday, I walked into my boss’s office and I read the following off of a piece of paper.
“Man, Gus Malzahn is having a rough time. I expected him to turn into Gene Chizik… but not so soon!”
He looked at me and said “Where did you get that from?”
“I wrote it myself, after doing research!”
And we quickly started discussing the nuances of college, versus professional, football.
He explained to me that college football was exciting because you never knew what was going to happen. I explained to him that professional wrestling was exciting because you knew what was going to happen.
We both laughed.
We both walked away thinking that we had no idea what the other was thinking.
But I know that I had darn well better google whatever happens with Auburn Football tomorrow. I hope they win. Fingers crossed… man. I hope they win.
So… what teams are you hoping will win?
