So Monday is here again...Wow, that went fast...Before I get into all the College Football madness, and my own personal madness, I have to talk about the Cleveland Browns game in New England...I was busy all day Sunday, but I kept checking into the game...Each time I was shocked to see the Browns in the lead...The lead was never too big...That will happen when you settle for field goals instead of punching it into the end zone...

Late in the 4th quarter the Browns were still up, but Tom Brady gets the ball back with over two minutes left...TD, Onside Kick, Bad Pass Interference Call, TD,  Game Over...Patriots win...The Browns snatch defeat from the Jaws of victory...BRUTAL!

I was reminded of why I gave up my Browns Fan Card...Games like this...Like most of the games they've played this year...

My numerous Ohio State fans had a rough go at it this weekend, and Michigan State's defense handled Braxton Miller and company...And the MSU offense seemed to surprise the hapless Buckeyes defense...The Spartans took down the #2 Buckeyes 34-24, and every Auburn player, coach and fan rejoiced...And all of the SEC had another chance to laugh at Ohio State...

Earlier in the Day Auburn won the SEC title in a no defense allowed battle with Missouri, winning 59-42...Florida State rolled Duke 45-7 in the ACC title game...So it's set...#1 FSU will take on Auburn in the National Championship Game...So how did the other bowls shake out?

I was hoping they would have matched Urban Meyer and Nick Saban's egos in a battle...But instead Saban's Tide will face Oklahoma in the Sugar Bowl...Ohio State will take on Clemson in the Orange Bowl...Or the battle of two highly touted teams that fell on their faces!

The Fiesta Bowl will be Baylor and UCF...Oklahoma State and Missouri will play the Cotton Bowl...And in what could be the most fun game to watch, the Rose Bowl, Stanford will face Michigan State...Two hard-nosed teams that like to pound the ball and play defense...Defense! What's that!?!   A rarity these days!

My Irish will play Dec. 28th against Rutgers, in the Pinstripe Bow at Yankee Stadium...The Irish better win! That's all I have on that.

As for my life this weekend...Friday night I took the kids skating...My wife and I were suppose to go out to a Christmas party, but our sitter got seriously sick, and our evening out was screwed...

Saturday we took the kids with friends to lunch with Santa...The saw the fat man...Asked him for a specific thing or two...(already have them...Santa already has his shopping done!) Here's Little Beeze thinking hard about exactly what he wants...

 

Afterwards we took the kids for ice cream...Then back to our friends home...My buddy and I ditched the kids and ladies for a couple hours, grabbed a couple beers, a burger, and watched some football...Lunch with Santa wasn't that good, or filling...

Sunday was work...Lots of work...We did a big switch in the Beeze house...We moved the girls upstairs to our room...and moved us down to their room...Fuck I forgot how heavy that King size bed was...And those sweet bunk beds I put together months ago...I had to take them apart to get them through the doorways, and up the stairs...It was ton of work, cleaning, lifting...Good exercise too...Which will go well with our change in diet...We've gone with organic meat, fruits, and veggies...And we've been juicing in place of one meal a day...We've both felt better and lost some weight in just a week since we got the juicer...

The weekend went fast, and somehow felt long...

Now for this week's Christmas song...It's more of a anti-Christmas song, but I like it...Daniel Mustard's "Since Santa Ain't Coming"

 

Have a week...

The Beeze.

 

Q-o-t-D 12/8/13 Tags: NCAA BCS College Football
With how things played out Saturday, it looks like we'll see Florida State and Auburn in the National Championship game....that said, would you like to see Ohio State and Alabama square off in one of the other BCS Bowls?

Let's Screw Up the BCS One Last Time...
Category: Daily Blog 2.0

This week as the BCS waves bye-bye....

 

I am looking for more upsets than a heavy drinker’s stomach...

 

Puke City, USA, please...

 

Let’s go out with a flush...

 

The last BCS championship needs to be the Toilet Bowl...

 

I would just love to see everything get screwed up one last time...

 

Yes, it won’t happen...

 

But put on your dream caps and see what’s possible...

 

Imagine Coach Krzyzewski and his Dukies upsetting Florida State...

 

Probably a pipe dream, but that WOULD be super spiffy...

 

(Pipe dream??? Who made up that term??? Willie Nelson???)

 

And WE need THE Ohio State to bite THE big one...

 

Can you imagine JDIN’s reaction???

 

Start digging the grave...

 

Who’s JDIN???

 

If you don’t know, don’t ask...

 

It’s an inside blogger thing...

 

I really do like the Spartans in that game...

 

Gotta have Auburn fizzle, too...

 

And I do think that is VERY possible...

 

A big let down after a big win???

 

It’s happened before...

 

Of course, if all of that happens...

 

We get ‘Bama again in the championship game...

 

Can that be true???

 

Probably ‘Bama and Missouri...

 

OHHH NOOOO!!!

 

NOT ANOTHER SEC FINAL!!!

 

Backell will have a cow...

 

(Don’t ask...)

 

But does that really count???

 

Missouri is still too new to be considered SEC...

 

And they’re mostly above the Jackie Mason-Dixon Line...

 

Which could be related to Florida Georgia Line...

 

So maybe we have settle for...

 

The Okie Dokie State Cowboys versus 'Bama...

 

I can live with that one...

 

But I’m not done yet...

 

Some schools don’t belong in BCS games...

 

Just because of their name...

 

UCF???

 

Is that even a school???

 

I thought it was a charity until somebody told me otherwise...

 

Untied Children’s Fund...

 

Kinda like UNICEF with less letters...

 

And by the way...

 

According to my rules...

 

A school must earn its acronym...

 

And until then...

 

You can only say...

 

“Central Florida”...

 

And by the way...

 

I didn’t even know Florida had a center...

 

Anything with a panhandle can’t possibly have a center..

 

I wouldn’t even give it a “middle”...

 

Like Middle Tennessee State...

 

You need to be more puffy to have a middle...

 

Tennessee isn’t too puffy...

 

But it’s barely puffy enough to have a middle...

 

And here’s the deal...

 

I want SMU (acronym approved by dvt)...

 

To beat Central Florida so bad...

 

Let ‘em bring back the Pony Express...

 

Eric Dickerson and Craig James...

 

That’ll work...

 

And I’m still not done...

 

Who’s Northern Illinois playing???

 

Bowling Green???

 

They have to lose to Bowling Green...

 

Bowling Green???

 

What a silly name...

 

Hey, Bowling Green...

 

What size shoe do you want???

 

Is that one or two lanes???

 

What’s your handicap, Bowling Green???

 

Obviously it’s your name...

 

Why didn’t you just go ahead and name your school...

 

Lawn Bowling Green...

 

It would make a lot more sense...

 

A lot more sense than the BCS,,,’

You know, some weekends are work, work, work...Luckily Mrs. Beeze does the majority of the laundry!

The weekend started with me in the kitchen preparing Thanksgiving dinner...The kids watched the parade, my oldest nursing a serious cold that knocked her for a loop Tuesday afternoon, and kept her in bed for 2 days...

Family came and ate...Not too much family...Which meant lots of leftovers...Everyone left the house with extra food, and we still had plenty to enjoy the rest of the weekend...Plus the turkey stew I made with the dark meat, and the bones, and veggies...It cooked on very low heat for about 17 hours, and then we poured it over some fresh biscuits...Delicious!

Then came Saturday...I made it clear that all I was doing was watching football...First Ohio State at Michigan...It became very clear, early in this game, that neither team was here to play defense...It came right down to the wire...Michigan scores with less then 40 seconds left...42-41 OSU...Michigan coach Brady Hoke decides to try to ruin the Buckeyes' season right here and go for 2...They failed...Seemed like a bad play call, not giving his running QB an option to run it in himself if it's there...Me, I would have played it safe, kicked the 1, and go at it some more in OT...People say OSU would have rolled in OT...Well, the way the game went, Michigan wasn't having trouble moving the ball themselves...Oh well...The Buckeyes undefeated season marches on, looking ahead to Michigan State in the conference championship game...and looking over their shoulder to see if they get jumped by a 1 loss team in the rankings...

Then the "Iron Bowl" came on...Alabama at Auburn...So many of us wanted to see an upset...And with 1 second left, Alabama attempts a 57 yard field goal with a freshman kicker...Their starting kicker (who I won't name because he has already gotten enough hate mail and bad press) missed 3 field goal attempts earlier in the game...The kick was short, and Auburn CB Chris Davis returned it 109 yards for the winning, touchdown...

 

 

Fucking Auburn is becoming masters of the exciting big play, big finish...

After the game, Auburn AD Jay Jacobs was already pissing off Ohio State, and Ohio State fans by making his case to jump them in the standings saying it would be "a disservice to college football" if a one-loss SEC champion was left out of the national title game for Ohio State....Fucking balls down there in the South!

I'm not taking a side here, I'm just saying, maybe wait until your school plays Missouri in the SEC title game before you start trying to get into the National Championship game...

Then I watched my Fighting Irish take on Stanford...I didn't expect the Irish to win, but I was glad they hung in there...The fact is, they could have won this game...Like some other games this year, mistakes, and bad QB play got to them...I read a headline that summed up Saturday's game...

"Rees Shows Heart, Not Enough Arm."

I also had myself jumping to the UCLA/USC game...I was actually expecting it to be closer, but UCLA handled the Trojans 35-14...When that one lost it's luster I started checking on the Missouri/Texas A&M game...Missouri won 28-21, putting them into the SEC Championship game against Auburn, and putting that miserable look on Johnny Manziel's face...And I never get tired of that...

It has been a crazy football week...Thursday, I didn't watch the NFL, with the exception of the last 5 minutes of the Steelers/Ravens game...I did watch the Ole Miss/Miss State game...It was an old school backyard brawl, and Miss State pulled 17-10 OT win...From what I heard, it was better then the Lions/Packers game...

Sunday, I watched no football...Had to pick up the slack from doing nothing Saturday...So, we broke out the Christmas decorations and got all that crap started...It's the earliest we've ever done this crap...I don't like going this early, but the kids were excited...Plus the weekends are already getting booked up, plus both the girls birthday's are this month...Our oldest turns 12 Tuesday...Were the hell did the time go!?!

Oh, and I saw the Browns lost to Jacksonville...Jacksonville...that shit is why I quit being a Browns fan!

So, since I'm being Johnny Festive, I figure I end each week's post with a Christmas tune...But I'm gonna try to use some songs that aren't traditional...Here's Dead Sara's "Snow in Los Angeles"

 

 

 

Have a week...

Uncle B.O.B.'s CFB Thoughts - Thanksgiving Weekend
Category: FEATURED
Tags: NCAA College Football BCS

What a weekend of College Football – this is what it should be like every stinking week!!!  For those who want to see the BCS sweat just a little bit, this past CFB weekend was just for you because now it’s utter chaos and could be devastating if Michigan State wins next week over Ohio State.  I’m in the minority, but I don’t believe either Florida State OR Ohio State is worthy of the NC Game.

I spent the majority of yesterday and today listening to the bias in favor of Ohio State and I wonder "Really?"  So I say OK justify it, and all I get is "Undefeated".  OK, fair.  So by that standard (and I know Doug hates this) why isn't Northern Illinois in the discussion?  They're undefeated.  They play a D-1 schedule.  So tell me why Ohio State, or for that matter Florida State is more deserving.  See my point about how ludicrious that argument is?

Take it a step further:  If the decision is that that NIU is unworthy, then what are they or the MAC, MWC, CUSA, Big East, or Sun Belt doing in D-1?  Why if they have ZERO chance of being recognized, let alone have an actual chance don't they create their own division?

  • At first glance, Florida State/Duke might not seem to be a challenge, but…
  • 40 years of watching football and what Auburn did to Alabama at the end I only saw once and that was at a HSFB game.
  • Did anybody catch that ass-whoopin Arizona State put on Arizona?  This is a team who might challenge UCLA next season for sure.
  • Speaking of being dominated, the Ultra $ucky Cheaters took a beatdown from UCLA, and while I don't care it's significant to see the power shift down south.

My Bowl Picks.  This is as of right now:

  • NC Game:  Florida State/Auburn
  • Rose:  Stanford/Ohio State
  • Sugar:  Missouri/Baylor
  • Orange:  UCF/Duke
  • Fiesta:  Oklahoma State/UCF
  • Cotton:  Alabama/Michigan State

My CFB Top 25.  No offense, but I’m not ranking four-loss teams.  I have respect for SOS, but four losses is four losses.  Nobody has a better resume than that.

  1. Auburn (11-1) (4, Won vs. Alabama 34-28).  Next:  Missouri (SEC Championship Game)
  2. Missouri (11-1) (5, Won vs. TAMU 28-21).  Next:  Auburn (SEC Championship Game).
  3. Oklahoma State (10-1) (1, Idle).  Next up @ Oklahoma 12/7
  4. Florida State (12-0) (2, Won @ Florida 37-7).  Next:  Duke (ACC Championship Game).
  5. Alabama (11-1) (3, Lost @ Auburn 34-28). 
  6. Ohio State (12-0) (6, Won @ Michigan 42-41).  Next:  vs. Michigan State (Big 10 Championship).
  7. Michigan State (11-1) (8, Won vs. Minnesota 14-3).  Next:  vs. Ohio State (Big 10 Championship).
  8. Baylor (10-1) (10, Won @ TCU 41-38).    
  9. Stanford (10-2) (11, Won vs. Notre Dame 27-20).   Next:  Arizona State (PAC 12 Championship).
  10. Arizona State (10-2) (14, Won vs. Arizona 58-21).  Next:  Stanford (PAC 12 Championship Game).
  11. Oregon (10-2) (12, Won vs. Oregon State 36-35).  From NC contenders to ugly uniform matchup.    
  12. Duke (10-2) (15, Won @ North Carolina 27-25).  Next up:  Florida State (ACC Championship).
  13. Oklahoma (9-2) (13, Idle). Next up vs. Oklahoma State 12/7            
  14. Northern Illinois (12-0, Beat Western Michigan 33-14).
  15. UCLA (8-3) (19, Won @ USC 35-14).  This will be a very tough team next season!
  16. Fresno State (10-1) (9, Lost @ San Jose State 62-52).  Next up:  Utah State (MWC Championship) 
  17. LSU (8-3) (17, Won vs. Arkansas 31-27).  Once again, prevent defenses prevent wins.               
  18. South Carolina (10-2) (21, Won vs. Clemson 31-17).    
  19. Clemson (10-2) (7, Lost @ South Carolina 31-17).
  20. UCF (10-1) (22, Won vs. South Florida 23-20).   
  21. North Dakota State (10-0) (21, Idle).  Hey Big 12, Why not?
  22. Louisville (10-1) (26, Idle).  Next 12/5 @ Cincinnati. 
  23. Cincinnati (9-2) (23, Idle).  Next 12/5 vs. Louisville.
  24. Ball State (10-2) (27, Beat Miami (OH) 55-14).
  25. Miami, FL (9-3).  (30, Won @ Pitt 41-31).
