1. This Is Sparta!

Poor Michigan Fan – you’ve endured a lot of pain and suffering on the gridiron and on the hardwood.  Sad fans being sad is almost your motto and after this Saturday, it’ gonna take a whole lotta cheese-curds and whiskey to get you thru this latest loss.  For the rest of us – IT. WAS. AMAZING!  To see how you snatched defeat from the jaws of victory is one of the best endings in College Football history – you’ll have to relive this moment forever every fall, because TV will show it over and over and over and over, and it got us thinking about the rest of the miracles we’ve seen over the years in college football.

2. Same As It Ever Was…

So what did we learn this Saturday – we learned that the SEC West will still come down to the November 7th game between LSU and Alabama.  The Crimson Tide took A&M behind the woodshed again and let them know that they are still not ready, and LSU overcame Florida by dusting off an old favorite – seriously coach, how do you not expect that from Les Miles – those who fail to learn their history are doomed to repeat it…The Spread infiltrated the SEC, but it seems POWER still wins.  So we’ll see, both teams seem to be getting better.  The same can’t be said for Ole Miss.
