Another Shitty Season

(Sigh) ... Once again, I have waited all year long for college football to start only to be disappointed by my alma mater's team.

Yes, once again my beloved Sun Devils have broken my heart. The ineptitude that embodies the head coach only adds to my heartbreak.

It's pathetic really to wait so long with anticipation only to have your season over a few weeks into the season.

But this has been the situation all too often with the ass-clown known as
Dirk Koetter. This guy gets nearly $900K a year to produce sub-par football teams with all of the resources known to the college football world. Even Jake the Snake, complete with his new porn-stache, threw some dinero at the program to improve it's weight room.

So there it is .... I'm a 36 year old man who pathetically spends the entire year looking forward to college football season only to have his hopes dashed yet again. I truly am the defintion of schizophrenic: I keep doing the same thing over and over again hoping for a different result.

What the school doesn't realize is that, as pathetic as it might sound, college sports rankings do have an effect on how well the school is ranked in US News. While I was in law school at Cincinnati, we slipped a few spots in the rankings. Apparently had our basketball team finished better in the NCAA tourney, we would have received more applications from more students which leads to a school being more selective. If you're a school that only has 100 applicants for 90 seats, you're not that selective. If you have 150 seats and you receive 2200 applications, you're very selective. The more applications you receive, the more academically inclined your student body will be.

Look at this pic of the stadium at half-time vs. Oregon last week. WTF??? It's 3/4 empty!!! Mind you, this isn't a pre-game ceremony or a post-game cermony. This is fucking half-time!!! This is not going to help rankings of any kind!!!

So my only hope is that the idiot will be fired at the end of the season. I've been calling for this since the talentless ass-nugget was hired 6 years ago, so I can say I've hated this guy from the start. So I'm hoping for this and I'm quite sure that once again, ASU will let me down by letting this moron coach another season.

wow that picture is surprising! i thought ASU fans always packed the house... my Terps have finished 5-6 each of the last two seasons but we still manage to fill the stadium.

I am very sorry. I went to GA State and for the life of me, I don't think we has a team of any kind. (did we?) For sports I had to choose between GA Tech and UGA. I maintain that I don't watch college football because I had no solid connection to a team.

dude, at least your alma mater has a football team! I am wearing a shirt right now that says "George Washington Football: Undefeated"...haha, get it? My damn school hasn't had a team since the 1950s :(

Louisville is 6-0 for the first time in school history, but they're slipping. They had to survive a last-play throw into the end zone to beat Cincinnati at home. I hope they get their shit together.

Can you believe it? I mean, ASU has over 50,000 students with the stadium on campus and they can't put enough asses in the seats for a game?? Pretty sad ....

Cincysundevil said...

Thanks for thinking of me. Hopefully you got all tingly thinking about me ;)

I can understand that sentiment. I'm not from the South so I don't really get geeked up for some Southern things like the song "Sweet Home Alabama".

Cincysundevil said...

At least you're undefeated!

Ohio State football. The best team alumni and Dave Thomas can buy.

Louisville will be fine. Brian Brohm just needs to shake the rust and you guys will be hanging 40 on teams before you know it.
