Sprint Option: Bye Bye, Jimmy

Welp. That went about how I expected. Georgia -14 was the easiest spread I’ve picked this season. Holy moly. Let’s get right to it. This week we see the first playoff rankings. That means we get to dial up the bitching about how so-and-so “ain’t played nobody, Paul!” The option this week will be breaking down Florida. Fair warning. I’ll be following up with a rankings post later in the week.

Let’s go.

Sprint Option: Week 5

So, coming at you on Tuesday because I was rendered physically ill by what I saw on the field in Gainesville on Saturday. Holy moly. I’ll save it for the write up, but everything is awful. Trust me, that doesn’t give anything away. Read on at your own peril.

Sprint Option: Labor Day Weekend

It’s here! It’s here!

College football has finally returned and with it, my primary reason for writing this blog. Thank the good Lord for college football.

As the editor, I lacked the desire to post anything for fear of my message getting hijacked by some stupid cause du jour. (It also didn’t help things that my Braves are terrible and our best baseball writer bailed to get drunk, teach college kids, and ramble about fiction–some of those things happen at different times.)

What I’m really saying is: blame Caleb, I’m not all that sorry, and screw your politics. College football is back! Let’s get to the Option!

Sprint Option: Fire the Committee (Into the Sun)

The table is set for the playoff and other bowl games. The four teams going are Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State, and Washington. If this sounds familiar, it’s because you heard it last week. As you likely ascertained from the title, I am irritated by the result. Now, I promise that I will adhere to logic here; and I will hold out as long as I can. But, today, I write angry. 

That said, let’s get to the Option.
