(Authors note: I had to write this recap on Saturday morning, before the game. But don't worry, I'm pretty good at predicting stuff, so you probably won't even notice.)
Wow, what a game. Somebody better tell these kids that its still September. These teams were playing like it was January!
That definitely exceeded expectations, or not, depending on what your expectations were.
Offense, defense, special teams. Yup, they all showed up and played this game and for both teams.
However, the play of the game belonged to only one man. Well, two if you count that other guy. You know who I'm talking about. What an unbelievable feat of athleticism. Truly indescribable.
But in the end, the better team won. This also marks the 350th consecutive game, in which the team that dominated my three keys to success: touchdowns, field goals, and safeties, ended up winning the game. It's called "Amir Blumenfeld's Formula" and its never wrong. Ever.
People talk about defense and limiting penalties, but in my book, outscore your opponent, and you will win. 100% of the time.
So where do we go from here? Well you have to realize that there are still ten games left to play, which in College Football Land is like fifteen games. Anything can happen!
(Anything = any combination of wins and losses that could amount from playing ten more games. 10-0, 9-1, 8-2, 7-3, 6-4, 5-5, 4-6, 3-7, 2-8, 1-9 etc.)
