I have been waiting for this day for months. Sure, it was nice to get the football season back in gear last week, and to actually play a game. But it wasn't the same, having been forced to listen to the game online. It is an entirely different animal this week, when I actually get to watch the game on the television.
I can't wait to get introduced to Daymond Patterson in full, living-and-breathing color.
I can't wait to see the AstroTurf of Memorial Stadium, nor can I wait to see the stands jam-packed with blue.
I can't wait to yell at the TV after a disheartening turnover or sack or long play by the opposing offense. I love being mad at football, in a weird and messed-up kinda way.
I can't wait to be able to analyze a college football game after watching it, so I feel at least somewhat informed in my opinions.
But most of all, I can't wait to watch the Kansas Jayhawks play football. Should be fun.
With all of that said, here is your open thread for tonight's game. Put any-and-all comments, before, during or after the game, here.
Louisiana Tech figures to provide a solid test, a game where it should be pretty close at halftime. I don't think we will have too much trouble ending up with the higher number of points, but don't be surprised for it to be a nail-biter, at least at the beginning of the game. I'll predict that DP scores another TD, that Jocques has a much better game than last week and that we effectively render Taylor Bennett horrendous. I'll also preidct that we give up two TDs, one to Patrick Jackson and the other to Phillip Livas.
Overall, a productive game, but not a terribly dominant game as we became accustomed to last non-conference season.
