Halloween soundtrack, metal style

I know Friday’s 5 o’clock Whistle had a holiday theme, but that was two whole days ago. So here’s a little more music to put you in the mood for a little more Halloween.

J3C College Football Top 25 (after wk 9)

Another day, another disappointing second half by Tennessee. This seems to be a trend … If you had no rooting interest, the Florida-Georgia game was pretty fun to watch. If you had a rooting interest, it was either serious relief or serious disappointment in the end … Was that a chink in the Oregon armor we saw last night? … So much for Michigan State, which surprised me a reasonable amount … So much for Missouri, which didn’t surprise me at all … No one actually thought Ole Miss was going to be a problem for Auburn did they? … How on earth did Duke beat Navy? … On the bright side, GT avoided any more ugliness, at least until Thursday …

My Top 25 for this week (previous ranking in parentheses)

Halloween weekend is upon us so a little mood music seems appropriate. After the whistle,there’s demons, Zombies, Frankenstein, and monsters … it’s like a Nightmare 🙂

J3C College Football Top 25 (after week 8)

I’m running out of ways to describe the misery this season has turned into for me as a fan. It is what it is at this point, I’m reduced to watching college football with as little personal rooting interest as I’ve had in a long time, or more accurately, not watching. GT is miserable, UT is even worse, there’s no way to sugarcoat it, although at least the Vols have a temporary excuse of having their recruiting disrupted by Lil’ Lane. On the Flats, there really isn’t an excuse for the poor judgment that has dropped the talent level to frightening depths … At the top of the poll Oregon continues to play like a video game, but it’s certainly working for them … I believe Cam Newton has the Heisman as long as the Tigers lose no more than one game between now & the bowls. He’s simply a freak of nature, but in a good way … Speaking of Newton, think Urban Meyer cries himself to sleep at night over what might have been? I would. … I wonder if people in Beijing refer to mass confusion as a Baton Rouge firedrill? … And at the risk of repeating myself, how bad is the SEC East right now? At this point I expect UGA to beat up Florida & position themselves for a conference title shot …

Friday 5 o’clock Whistle (10/22/10)

Note: Due to unexpected complications, 5pm Friday did not occur in my blog world until almost 1am Saturday. Sorry about that folks.

The calendar keeps rolling along & so does the rock for your weekend. This week there’s new music from Rob Halford & Avenged Sevenfold, plus some Metallica for good measure.

Game on

With now only the whims of our Fed Ex driver standing between me & the arrival of Fallout: New Vegas, I’ve been thinking a little about my history with video games. Not so much all the places I’ve been, but rather, how I ended up back here.

J3C College Football Top 25 (after wk 7)

Well that was interesting … Guess I was just a week ahead of the curve by putting someone other than Ohio State at #1 … Georgia Tech looks like a contender for the Sun Belt conference title … Georgia did what was expected against Vandy … Tennessee managed to avoid losing to Open Date … Nevada & Air Force betray my confidence in them … Clearly Arkansas has a lot of work to do, you aren’t going to win many basketball games unless you can score at least fifty points. Huh? What? FOOTBALL? That was a football sc … Nevermind. … In putting together this week’s poll, I realize more than ever than going past the top 10 or so, things start to get really iffy. By the time I get to 20, it’s a real crapshoot.
