Quote of the Day:
“I am getting more addicted by the week!” –Tiny D
The last two weeks have been tough on TB, the fan. It looks like, once again, next year is not here quite yet for my beloved Dogs and the football jalopy that is their program. Same ol’ State. We play Georgia this weekend. We last beat Georgia in 1974. They always kill us. In fact in my first game to attend as student at State, in the immortal year of our Lord, Tech and 10, we had a heroic drive finish with under two minutes to go to tie mighty Georgia at 35, and there was no overtime back then and a tie was good with me and probably every other State fan there that night. But Georgia got the ball on their twenty and drove down the field with under a minute to play to score a touchdown and win. They ran the ball on every play. I’ve never seen a two minute drill run like that before or since. Still, I hope. In my heart. I even feel it in my bones. We can win this weekend. In my mind, Same ol’ State.
So thank goodness for Thursday Pickin’. For in TP, TB has been a winner surrounded by winners. The TBU went an impressive 14-8 last week in the all important POTW category to run our season tally to 38-30. In bonus picks we went a respectable 26-22-3. TB won my POTW to go 3-0 on the young season in that category and 2-2-1 on bonus picks leaving my record there at 6-7-2. In his first ever submission for song of the week MD came away with the points while TD once again took home the points for list. BR became the first citizen to nail an outright Dog o’the Week with his Arkansas pick and gets kudos. Smily and Pitalo also called an outright Dog, so congrats to them too.

RSR always has good tunes listed, hence the name I suppose (TB you really married “up” by the way–nice work outta you), but I prefer the Foo Fighters song below. The “official” video for this was beyond gay (not that there’s anything wrong witb that), so I had to do a little searching to find this pretty decent live version.
noting the time, I think that I entitled to an alternate SOTW selection: this is some vintage sh$t, back before Kirk was hard on herion, etal. :
Air Force – 13 1/2
Kansas State – 7
Oklahoma – 13 1/2
UTEP – 11 1/2
South Carolina +3
POTW – Texas -16
Songs are all about the cheating since I’ve been watching a pair and wondering how long it will take until they are caught by someone besides me……

Me and Mrs. Jones – Billy Paul
You Oughta Know – Alanis Morrisette
The Other Woman – Ray Parker, Jr.
Your Cheatin Heart – Hank Williams, Sr.
SOTW – Before He Cheats – Carrie Underwood
A little behind so here it goes.
Boston College +4
Air Force -13.5
