The quarterback class of 2004 has some problems, man. Well, other than the fact J.P. Losman is out of the league, I mean. Welcome to Aaron It Out, Week 6.
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.
Happy Friday! I’ve got to start writing this thing on Wednesday nights. I had a much better week last week, going 6-4. As we head into the October games, we will now get to see teams separate themselves as more conference games get played. October is the best college football month, and we’ve got an interesting slate this weekend.
Let’s Bet the Board!
Well, we have officially completed a quarter of the NFL regular season. It’s gone by so fast! It seems like just yesterday the Rams were horrible, the Chiefs were an afterthought, and the Patriots looked dominant. What happened?
I woke this morning to news of the horrible shooting in Las Vegas. First and foremost, I hope and pray for the victims. I wrote the Option yesterday and hope now, more than ever, it can serve as a light-hearted distraction from the grim news of the day.
Sorry about the Sprint Option. The bombshell fell about this huge scandal and Pitino et al. I’m planning to write up a deeper piece on it. But spoiler on my conclusion, I want to know what law is doing yeoman’s work for the FBI to make this prosecutable. We will see.
But until then, let’s Bet the Board! Nowhere to go but up with how awful I did last week.
Can we just talk about the games? There may be something there at the end about kneeling, standing, or whatever… but can’t football be football, for right now?
Let’s get to it. Thanks to a server outage at WordPress, this did not seem to get posted. So I have rewritten my midweek lead in for a early Saturday Bet the Board. Anyway, let’s rock and roll.
The AFC West may be one of the most compelling divions in sports; it certainly is that right now in the NFL, even after two weeks.
… and that, friends, is a sentence I didn’t see myself writing. Welcome to week 3’s Aaron It Out.
