Meeting or Exceeding Expectations

Expectations, this weekend were met, yet they were also exceeded by Ole Miss. The team played a complete half of football for the first time this year against Arkansas before returning to form and becoming a hibernating, de-clawed and completely docile bear. If they could play an entire game like they did the first half against Arkansas, then I suspect there wouldn’t be many calls for coaching changes at the school. I’m not going to say much more about the team except this; they keep playing like that and get a little better every week, then they have a good chance of beating MS State in the Egg Bowl this year. Up until the Ole Miss/Arkansas game, I didn’t think they had much chance at all against a very mediocre State team this year, State better pick it up if they want to reach 6-6.

On a side note, how sad is it to be ‘hoping’ for ‘average’? What a great year for Mississippi SEC schools! /sarcasm.

Other teams: I really enjoyed the Wisc./Mich St. and Texas Tech/OK games. I knew Oklahoma was beatable but didn’t see Texas Tech doing the job, and while I feel sorry for my Wisconsin buddy, that was a hell of a game.

Beer: Not much surprisingly. Some more Sam Adams Oktoberfest, and some Lat 48 on Sunday.
