Thoughts for a Thursday
West Virginia-Louisville kicks off in about half an hour and don't get me wrong its a huge game but I really don't care about it too much. Probably because it starts at 4:30 pacific time meaning I'll still be at work for pretty much the first half, then having to drive home in the traffic means I'll get the 4th quarter if I'm lucky. It's crazy to think that a college football game of this importance is taking place on a Thursday night. There's another big one next week when Rutgers hosts Louisville so if the Cardinal pull it out tonight we get another unbeaten showdown next Thursday.
A lot has been made of Kirk Herbstreit's comments earlier this week but I don't see what the big fuss about it is. Sure calling someone worthless isn't the best of things but he's playing to his crowd on his Columbus radio show. Granted he is a Buckeye but I've never had a problem with him ESPN, he's better than most, if not all of the analysts on the network. People are a bit more fired up now that the impending Game of the Millenium is only 2 weeks from happening, especially Michigan fans because they feel their team is being disrespected in the media. Sure not many are giving the Wolverines a chance but I love that role, we've been there before, Coach Carr has been there before and I know this team will give all they have on that field in Columbus and I can't wait.
