    Whos ready for some football ? Its rivalry week (real world) and some of the greatest games of the season will be played today. So what games are everyone looking forward to ?


    This is one of my favorite times of the football season. Rivalries drive college football.

    The game that is most important to me is The Battle for the Boot between Arkansas and LSU. Its always a great game and for those of you who arent familiar the game is either played in Baton Rouge or in Little Rock. Arkansas is the only team to have 2 home fields and the Battle for the Boot is a game that is reserved to be played in Little Rock at War Memorial Stadium when its Arkansas year to host the series.

    The game I really wanted to see played a little while ago. My Bucks did what they needed to do and stomped on the team from up north, and stomped 'em good.

    But man, the refs were awful. We got the benefit of a really bad interception call early, but we also got a number of personal fouls for showing this:

    Really? Shoeing this to the crowd after a touchdown is a 15-yard penalty?

    I don't remember seeing a call for this:

    And that happened all the time. Seriously weak. I think the guys in stripes were really concerned about things getting out of hand - and they ended up making things worse by pissing everyone off. Let's not forget the phantom hold on a huge run by Boom. Ridiculous. Both ways, it was ridiculous.

    But the good guys won, and all is right with the world.

    There are some ridiculous penalties for excessive celebration. Let the guys have fun
