Kamikaze the Greek
Here at Kamikaze Lunchbreak, we like to put it all out there, throw caution to the wind, lay it on the line. Okay, that’s bullshit. I’m a pretty careful guy, but I do like to shoot my mouth off in a not-fully-informed way.
So, in honor of college football season and my once-great alma mater (that’d be Florida State University, ‘holes . . . which rhymes with ‘noles), I have my ill-advised season predictions. I'm sure you'll all comb my archives at the end of the season to see how I did. I'll save you the trouble if I (choose to) remember that I did this.
First are five predictions for FSU, and then five for college football in general.
-- FSU will lose at least two games this season, but no more than four.
-- Most/all of FSU's losses will be indirectly (and accurately) blamed on Jeff Bowden.
-- FSU will beat either Miami or Notre Dame, but not both.
-- FSU will not win the ACC and, thus, will not go to a New Year's Day bowl.
-- FSU will finish the season ranked just inside the Top 20 (maybe in the 17-to-19 range).
-- Neither Miami nor Ohio State will be in the National Championship game.
-- Oklahoma and/or Notre Dame will be in there (the latter most likely due to some stupid BCS loophole).
-- Notre Dame will only lose one game this season; if they lose to FSU, it’ll be two games. (And I will continue to hate them, although I will respect them. Unless they play for the National Championship, and then I’ll just hate them.)
-- Kansas State players will be at home on New Year's Day, fucking their large, corn-fed girlfriends.
-- People will continue to whine that there isn’t a playoff system.
My apologies to those non-football fans and those who are large and/or corn-fed. (Queenie, I'm not baiting the fat people. And SSC, see how I incorporated the 'holes?)
