Football Is Back!

Seeing football games that actually meant something this week means that the year is finally entering its most interesting phase. Our youngest son saw his first action on his high school's JV team on Thursday in a 23-0 win, then we watched the Mountain View HS varsity beat the same team 58-0 on Friday night.

On Saturday, we watched Nebraska dismantle Nevada 52-10 -- showing that despite Boise State's win over Oklahoma in last year's Fiesta Bowl, a top 4 Big 12 team is much, much better than the average top 4 WAC team. While I really enjoyed seeing Michigan lose to a 1-AA opponent at home, I think the thing that jumped out at me most this week was the performance by Hawaii QB Colt Brennan late last night after most Sunday papers had gone to press. Brennan (admittedly playing against a weak opponent) was 34 for 40 for 416 yards and 6 TDs passing -- in the first half. While I'll be the first to admit that WAC football can't stand up to the best teams on a week in and week out basis, Brennan still deserves mad props for that performance.

Football is back...sadly (for me anyway), the Irish are not. It may very well be a long season ...or rather a short one as I completely tune-out...ok, that's not going to happen. LOL. As you say, it's a great time of year!

Football! There's nothing quite like a college football game. Even thought the weather is still in the 90's, just having football season start makes it seem like there's a crispness in the air.
