Welcome to Thursday Night, one that's more Thursday nightish than many other Thursday nights will be for plenty a long time.
IT'S ALMOST THE NATIONAL TITLE GAME and would have been if Kansas State didn't run into Baylor and Oregon didn't run into Stanford and not even play in their own conference title game, but hey, if we ignore that we can pretend it's the national title game because it's a really freaky match up.

Win or lose, one coach will headed to the NFL, with Kelly having been linked to the Cleveland Browns, Philadelphia Eagles, and Carolina Panthers. The other will head back to his casket where he'll tuck himself in for a long week full of rest and relaxation. Then he'll emerge, drink four pints of a freshman player's blood and find hisself replenished for yet another year of college football.
The FIESTA BOWL starts at 7:30 PM on ESPN (as if I have to say that again)!!!!
