I woke last night to the sound of thunder,
How far off? I sat and wondered
Started humming a song from 1962
Ain’t it funny how the night moves
When you just don’t seem to have as much to lose
Strange how the night moves
With autumn closing in.
Working and practicing…
Happy Autumnal Equinox! It’s football season.
I woke this morning at the crack of 10 to read an email from Bleacher Report that stated Penn State was almost ranked.
Yeah, almost ranked. Almost famous.
There it is, already. Big win over little team euphoria settles in over Happy Valley. But beware! Beware the feeling of invincibility that led to the first quarter versus UMass. Don’t let it go to your heads, especially those of you who take the field on Saturday against Northwestern. But this is the first the Lions have been allowed to be ranked by the USA Today poll, so there is something to celebrate about, anyhow.
Here’s how the polls shape up:
AP Top 25: Penn State was among “others receiving votes” with 81 votes, behind Duke, which got 86. The “rest” of the Top 25 were FSU, Oregon, Alabama, Oklahome, Auburn, Texas A&M, Baylor, Notre Dame, Moo U., Ole Miss, UCLA, Georgia, South Carolina, Mississippi State, ASU, Stanford, LSU, USC, Wisconsin, BYU, Nebraska, Ohio State, East Carolina, Oklahoma State, and Kansas State.
USA Today: Penn State was among “others receiving votes” with 67 votes, behind Oklahoma State, which received 110. The rest of the coaches’ poll teams were, starting at #1 and moving toward increased suckage, FSU, Alabama, Oklahoma, Oregon, Auburn, Baylor, Texas A&M, Notre Dame, Moo U., UCLA, Ole Miss, ASU, Georgia, Stanford, South Carolina, Mississippi State, Wisconsin, LSU, Nebraska, Ohio State, BYU, USC, Duke, East Carolina, and Kansas State.
