The Rice University Marching Band trolling the University of Texas at halftime. If you can’t beat your rival on the field, you might as well make fun of their conference crumbling around them.
ESPN just published an article about a possible PAC-16 with the Longhorns & Sooners both moving West. Plenty of people are up in arms about everything that’s going on in college football, but as you might be able to tell, I don’t care. Between scandals, the mess that is the BCS, and more scandals, I’ve given up wondering about whats good for the game. Whether we like it or not, money-grabbing will continue at the expense of both tradition and the integrity of the game.
But don’t get me wrong, I love college football. I don’t care about it in the off-season because its soul destroying, but when teams actually get out on the field and play, you repeatedly get the kind of product that watchers of the Auburn game yesterday were treated to. I don’t care how hopeless the whole venture is, football on Saturdays is one of the best things about this world.
Oh, and as far as that picture goes, isn’t it just fantastic?
No doubt, this is the most stunning piece of business in quite some time. (For anyone who still can’t get their heads round it, Nnamdi really did choose the Eagles). That said, there’s still some issues to be ironed out.
Firstly, the Philadelphia Eagles Cornerbacks:
Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (acquired in the Kolb trade)
Three-into-two doesn’t go. Yes Asomugha is probably only 2nd to Revis in his position in the entire the league, but where do you fit two more Pro-Bowl cornerbacks? The Eagles got a huge steal on some big rivals (Jerry Jones watching Asomugha wearing green in Cowboys Stadium anyone?) but as far as upgrades go, they’ve taken a step up in an already great position.
Secondly, DeSean Jackson is already threatening to hold out. With a 5 Year, $60m contract just given to a cornerback, where are the Eagles going to find the money to keep their No.1 receiver happy?
Andy Reid has won in this deal, that’s for sure. But we won’t find out by how much for some time.
