It pains me greatly to suggest this...

A review of the past weekend in college football.

Dreams were smashed, hopes crushed as Oregon lost to Stanford 31-24 in overtime, effectively eliminating the Pac-12 from college football playoff contention.

Alabama cruised, as did Georgia. Texas A&M did not cruise, but got beat to go 0-2 in the SEC. They are paying Jimbo Fisher $94M in guaranteed money. They play Alabama next. How bad will it in Aggieville?

Wake Forest is the best team in the ACC. Can they make the college football playoff?

The Big Ten - Ohio State was angry and smashed Rutgers. Penn State smashed crappy Indiana. Michigan smashed offensive-less Wisconsin, who are now 1-3 for the first time since 1990. You know what happened in 1990? Barry Alvarez arrived. Does this mean Wisconsin will revert to shitty Wisconsin now that Alvarez is gone? Probably.

IOWA demolished Maryland. Terp QBs through 6 interceptions. Does Iowa even need an offense?

My College Football Playoff Four right now:

- Alabama

- Georgia

- Iowa

- Cincinnati


I have a book out!

On August 21st, 2015, I unexpectedly dropped dead of a widowmaker heart attack. I was shocked five times on the way to the hospital with no response. I was shocked two more times in the ER. I was dead for over 20 minutes. A stent was placed, and I was induced into a coma. In January 2016 I received a second stent and in June I was diagnosed with an anoxic brain injury.

I wrote a book about my death and recovery. The title, “Been Dead, Never Been To Europe” reflects the ironic nature of life, what happens versus what we want to happen. It’s available at Amazon.
