Greetings, and glad the season has finally begun….and begun I mean all the Monday (or Tuesday) morning quarterbacking can begin. I’m probably as good at this, as I am making my weekly picks in our pool. So I am going to take a different spin on it this year. My take away blog will not result in an updated poll, or positional rank of teams….but will just be some random (and in some cases, deep) thoughts. Here goes:

So where do we go from here? The sporting world is officially at a standstill in my opinion now that hockey and basketball are done for the year, even more so noticeable after having very active playoffs years for our local teams.

This will be the first Pac-12 game they have been to. Both are looking forward to seeing if the reality of Autzen lives up to the hype as one of the best college football venues in the nation.

The College Football Quest machine has been hard at work the past few weeks making all the travel arrangements that go into our quest schedule. Once the games are selected, I get right to work trying to secure our travel arrangements. Sometimes this goes smoothly, other times, not so much. But other than Al booking a hotel for the wrong day, nothing has very seriously gone wrong….yet!
Tennessee @ Florida – September 21
There is no harder travel reservation to get than a hotel room in Gainesville. Since this is an annual trip we book a hotel in mid season for the following season. Hotel is booked. Flights to Jacksonville are also secured as is a rental car. Jacksonville is the preferred airport for the trip to Gainesville but cost often overrides and we typically end up … Read More »
