The first week of college football is all about the big schools crushing the little guys. It has become a tradition to have a first week patsy to make the big football programs feel all warm and fuzzy inside. This is not news worth reporting and kind of boring to watch. Case in point.
My team is the Volunteers of the University of Tennessee. I spent the middle 80’s drinking Long Island Iced Teas and baking in the sun watching the Big Orange play football. Great, big Division I school and the first week opponent is University of Tennessee Martin. I have been there, UTM is a small school, so small in fact some high schools have bigger stadiums and football programs. Naturally, The Vols smoke the Skyhawks 50-0 and walk around clapping each other on the back on a successful start to the season.
Other notable pasties, er patsies of the week. Alabama(1) over San Jose St 48-3. Oregon(11) over New Mexico 72-0. Florida(4) over Miami(OH) 34-12. I have to give credit to LSU(21) and North Carolina(18) with LSU winning 30-24, at least it was two ranked teams in the first week and a close game.
The real season starts this coming week. That is when the big houses will have to show up. As to the little guys who got pasted? Well they get a chance to play in the big house, get some press, and probably get a few extra dollars for their trouble. Hey its tradition right, and college football is all about tradition.
Personally, they should have had the cheerleaders play, that would have been more entertaining. See why and see a sweet Tennessee video after the jump!
How are the Orangemen this year? I’ve stopped tracking them like I used to.
Women’s football might be strange. I like the basketball game better but hockey isn’t that great. Lax is great no matter who plays it.
Thank you. I needed that. lol
On another note, Lingerie Football League…if you’ve never seen it, look it up. It’s worth the effort. 🙂
Gonna be tough for the Big Orange this year. The big game is versus Alabama, which of course is the case every year. This year though Alabama is starting the season ranked Number 1 so.. yeah.. New coach and all its going to be tough I think.
Nothing like bull snouts on orange shorts..
Oh, Pat, you’re going to fit right in here. I can just tell. You and Acadia are kindred spirits.
You couldn’t find a more fit topless girl for the banner pic?
Hey I posted Lesbian photos. That should count for some recognition!
Chunky middles get my recognition, mister!
I just noticed her middle.. hmm.. kinda skipped over that. Besides the Longhorn Cheerleaders were the real draw.
I’m here to point out the important flaws.
I heard that after she read these harsh comments she didn’t care.
I suspect her illiteracy may have contributed to her lack of caring.
this is an important factor why I adore you girls so much.
