Football In Earnest

Watching the teams warm-up
This weekend the college football season will get underway for most of the country.  There is a game or two on Thursday (9/3), several Friday night, and a cornucopia of events to choose from on Saturday (9/5).  (To top the weekend off, the NFL season starts on Sunday.  FOOOOOOOTBAALLLLLLLL! (Eyes glazed, mouth drooling.)  And just so we don't forget - High School football on Friday night also. 
Now, my SHS Yellow Jackets evened their season record up at 1 & 1 as they handled Tupelo High (in the Little Egg Bowl) on a nation-wide ESPNU broadcast last Friday (8/25).  This coming Friday we play at West Point High (local radio only).  Starkville is favored in this one.
Mississippi State kicks off their season on Saturday down at Hattiesburg (MS) as the Southern Miss Golden Eagles play victim to  host the Bulldogs.  Depending on which web site you look at, MSU is favored by anywhere from 14 to 27 points. If Dak is on his game and gets good protection, I think it could be more than that.
SO, whatever team you support.  Enjoy a game or six this weekend.  I'm gonna try to.
Everyone have a great day!
