First off, congrats to the Tigers. I fear we're going to have a repeat of 2006 after tomorrow, though. The Giants just look all out of sorts, and this is not the time of year to be doing that.
In an abbreviated Friday Football Forecast, the Colts get to host the Browns. I think they'll bounce back. Last week was a classic let-down game, and the Colts played into it. They'll get their act together now. And, if anything, the Browns are now in let-down mode, after finally breaking through to become the last team to win this year. So, yeah, Colts win, we'll say 28-17.
Purdue gets to travel to Ohio State. That doesn't leave me feeling all warm and fuzzy for a few different reasons. First off, Purdue has been all sorts of disappointing the past two weeks, and the Buckeyes have looked head and shoulders better than Wisconsin and Michigan. If the Boilers bring the same kind of attitude to Columbus that they brought, well, to their own backyard, this will be a massacre. Add to that Purdue's two-game win streak at Ross-Ade, and I'm sure the Buckeyes wouldn't mind sending a message. I don't even want to put up a score for this one, just suffice to say, this one will probably get ugly early. Watch at Harry's or a similar establishment to distract yourself if you can.
Wabash gets to come home after two pretty convincing road wins. They'll welcome the Scots of Wooster. Normally Wooster is one of the better teams in the NCAC, but this year is not one of those years. They're sitting at 2-4 right now. And those two wins are over perennial doormats Hiram and St. Vincent. Both teams that many times go years between winning games. Not exactly the sort of wins you write home about. With Wabash regaining their mojo, I think this one will be pretty lopsided. At least I'll get to enjoy one blowout on Saturday.
Anyway, off to sleep now. Long day tomorrow, and apparently I'm not doing it on much rest.
Forgot to add this. Wooster has a famous bagpipe band, at least in bagpipe circles. How famous? Coke famous!
