For Once, #NFL Sunday Was Meaningless #BAMAvsAUB

I sat on my couch as I usually do on Sundays, but it felt different this time.  There was something missing.  I watched Arizona v. Philadelphia, New England v. Houston, Chicago v. Minnesota, and a few other games with close scores in the 4th quarter.  But, I still felt as if something was missing.  The DirecTV NFL Sunday Ticket is way too expensive to not be satisfied, so what gives?  Why am I bored when watching my favorite sport of all-time?

Because Rivalry Week in college football ruined it for me.

It didn't ruin it in a bad way.  It actually was a good thing.  This weekend was the best weekend of college football that I've ever seen in my life.  So, after experiencing game-after-game of heated, long-standing, NCAA Football rivalries going down to the wire, I could only come down off of that high when NFL Sunday arrived.  The feeling of elation that I felt for some NCAA teams and depression that I felt for others could not be matched by the NFL.

Look at these scores from the games that I watched:

Duke over North Carolina, 27-25
* Mississippi State over Mississippi, 17-10, Overtime
Oregon over Oregon State, 36-35 
Georgia over Georgia, 41-34, Double Overtime 
* Ohio State over Michigan, 42-41
* Auburn over Alabama, 34-28

(*-came down to the last play of the game)

If you have a chance to catch the ending of any of these games, then treat yourself!  Even if you only watch the last five minutes of each one, then that will be enough to satisfy you.  And if you watch the 4th quarter of the Alabama / Auburn game, then you may see the most exciting 4th quarter in the history of football (pro or college).

Last weekend was the last full schedule of college football games for the season and it did not disappoint!


  1. I am a University of Oregon alum so of course I root for the Ducks. Man, that game was a killer for me, I was on the edge of my seat all the way to the end!! And Auburn...DAMN!! Amazing.

    1. I hope Oregon gets matched up against Bama in the bowl game. I've been dying to see them play each other!

  2. As a 15 year subscriber to Sunday Ticket I found the $300 price too expensive, not to mention being forced to stay with Directv. I decided to shop around and found some options. If interested I blogged about them here: http://blog.vimware.com/2013/09/how-to-watch-favorite-nfl-team-and-get.htm
