I was talking college football the other day with a Boston College grad, which is always a fruitful experience because all they can talk about is Doug Flutie and Matt Ryan. I might have said that both their conference and the Big East were irrelevant playing awful football hurting his feelings in the process. I think what got him was when he asked me which ACC and Big East games I’ve seen this season I had no reply to him. Actually I did. It went more like, “I’d rather pull polyps from my ass than watch that garbage.”

Being such a kind-hearted person I felt a little bad about this exchange, so I have made it a personal goal to watch an ACC and Big East game this weekend. But looking down below at the slop presented to us here in Los Angeles, I’m quickly regretting my decision. I know I made an argument last week that it didn’t matter what the matchups are since college football always guarantees exciting games, but I’m also regretting that statement. A whole lot of regrets in only the second paragraph of this piece.
