It’s Championship Week at the offices of the Perfect Football Weekend, and two of the three teams playing this week are, in fact, playing for conference championships.
Today, Turner Gill’s UBuffalo Bulls travel to Detroit to take on the 12th-ranked Ball State Cardinals for the Mid-American Conference championship. I’m tempted to put the SpatulaLine back in, given that Ball State is undefeated & ranked, but I promised that once I lifted it, it was gone, so…
But I still don’t think Turner’s boys have much of a chance.
Saturday Night, Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City will be the site where Sam Bradford and the fourth-ranked Oklahoma Sooners take on Chase Daniel and the 19th-ranked Missouri Tigers for the Big XII title.
Mizzou hasn’t beaten the Sooners in forever (or so it seems), but if Instant Karma is the bitch she advertises, a lot of Texas & TTech fans will be happy campers Sunday morning. I’m claiming Murphy’s Law on this and predicting a Tiger win.
Sunday, The Biggest Super Bowl XXX Rematch Ever In The History Of Ever, Ev-Effing-Er takes place in Pittsburgh as TRomo and the C’boys pay the Steelers a visit. DeMarcus Ware looks to be okay, but Marion Barber III’s toe is still
a little a helluva lot iffy – and Steel has the number one defense in the NFL, so I have my doubts about this one.
In fact, this could be the first time in a long time I go oh-fer on a PFW. Which means I’ll go back to work Monday in a foul mood. Which’ll be most appropos.
Back Monday for the recap. In the meantime, Bucky plays no one this weekend. Bucky’s favored by two.
