Although I’m feeling slightly under the weather today, I’m pretty happy that college football will be on any number of channels throughout the day today. Physically, my stomach and head have been bothering me – both of which I think are known side effects of some prescription medication that I’ve been taking. Since they’re known side effects, I’m not overly concerned, but if the aggravation and annoyance of these minor aches and pains are still around in a few days, then I think it’ll be time to call my doctor and see what the deal is with this stuff.
As for today’s games, I’m looking for the favorites (Oklahoma, Ohio, Alabama) to have impressive games today. My alma mater, Monmouth University, plays against Colgate today. Not that I know much about either team, but there is usually a buzz on the MU campus (and among local alumni) when they have a decent team and I haven’t heard any buzz so far this year. That said, I’m not comfortable picking either team to win since, again, I don’t know much about them.
Like most college football fans living in New Jersey, I’ll be cheering for Rutgers in their opener against Cincinnati on Monday afternoon. Let’s hope for another big year from the Scarlet Knights!
Late Night Update: How about Oklahoma going down to BYU?! You gotta love college football!
