Disappointing football teams

Kevin Wandra's picture

We're approaching another action-packed weekend of football, and there already have been many teams that have fallen below expectations: Auburn and Michigan in college, just to name two, and the New Orleans Saints, St. Louis Rams, New York Jets and New York Giants, to name four.

Out of all the aforementioned teams, I would say Michigan, a team that was expected to vie for the Big Ten title at the very least, has been the biggest disappointment thus far.

Which team, college or pro, do you feel has been the biggest disappointment so far?

I mean, who really cares? Last time I checked, we are south of the Mason Dixon line.

The Big 10 and the National Media should apologize for calling Michigan/Ohio State the game of the century, and even implying that they should play again to determine the MNC. The MNC game should have been Florida/USC..

That said, it's always a disappointment when UGA loses to South Carolina, it usually means a not so great year. Hopefully, this year will be different. And about Auburn, Barn fans know there is not room in Alabama for two programs to be on top of their game.

Also, in spite of all that, look for UGA over BAMA this weekend.

Actually, I've been pleasantly surprised by the number of Big 10 Alums I've seen since moving to PTC.

However, regarding performance on the football field, I remember Lee Corso was football coach when I was a student at Indiana. After several lackluster years, Corso called a press conference. He claimed "When I came to IU I promised to bring a consistent Rose Bowl contender to Bloomington... and USC will be here next weekend!"

I think he was fired at the end of that season...

Turner hired all sorts of Northwestern grads. As we Wildcats say, "That's alright, That's OK .. One day you will work for pay." You have to love a school that when they set the NCAA losing streak stormed the field and carried the goal post many blogs down Central to put it in the Lake. I might have to go look for that Alumni Club in ATL.

I have met a lot of nice folks from Big 10 Country that live here. I wonder why that is? Maybe it's the weather in the South. Smiling

In fact, the mix of people from around the country is one thing I like about PTC.

Let's see - college wise we got Notre Dame, which can't find the endzone. Charlie Weis is probably looking at the Patriots with Brady and Moss and wishing he had just stay put.
Then of course, there's Auburn, who hope they have hit rock bottom but could still fall a little more (there's some mighty tough games coming up and unless they get it together soon, they are going to get embarassed).
Georgia Tech is a little disappointing. Thanks for showing up the other night, boys. Cramming for a calculus final the night before or something?
Georgia is disappointing too. Don't they know they're not supposed to lose until the cocktail party?
Pro-wise - it's all about the lowly Falcons. They should be better than this, but they are not. The way the line is playing, Leftwich will be a sandwich before the season is over.

FF, you covered every angle very well.
Hot off the wire, "Former Jaguars quarterback Byron Leftwich passes physical and signs with the Falcons for two years and $6 million".
With Morten added to the mix, there just might be a glimmer of hope.
