I’m thinking that he’s a shoe-in to represent a large [ahem] constituency that have not had one of their […]
Time for the Big Kahuna. THE Ohio State University against Oregon for all the marbles. The National College Football Championship. Reading the venerable NY Times over the past season, it seems that the fair denizens of Gotham City (or at least those who utilize The Times for their information) seem to think of college football […]
FORT WORTH, TX – Down at Poag Mahones in the Fort…drinkin’ Rahr beer and discussing, with my fellow denizens of the night, the upcoming College Football Playoffs. We have 11-1 Alabamie at #1 Oregon, # 2, TCU at 11-1 as # 3 and Florida State at 12-0 coming in # 4. Ohio State and Baylor, both […]
