A Diary From a College Hoops Fan During Football Season

Yo, Journal! What is up big guy? I don’t know about you, but I just got done eating a large piece of cake and washing it down with two-liters of generic cola.

Guess what? No football on today, at all. Well, at least to my knowledge. Unfortunately, though, it has not stopped the pundits from talking about Thursday Night Football. The game is between the Buffalo Bills and the Cleveland Browns. I had no idea either team travelled so well. I mean, why else would they be talking about two 2-2 teams?

I am, however, learning a lot about the Browns. Something about them purposely tanking but the plan backfiring. They won their last two games since trading their supposed best player. It is weird, though. When I look up that guy’s stats he doesn’t look that special. He rushes for less than four yards per carry. The experts tell me that is because of how bad the Browns’ offensive line was. Mind you, these are the same people who were telling me how bad the new team’s line is. Whatever, I guess.

Still no college hoops information on my picture-box or on the interwebs. I found some stuff, but nothing of real relevance. More rankings of things that don’t matter, some jerkface doing a poorly worded Big East Conference to beer comparison, and more rankings. Nothing of importance, although, some fun reads.

I can’t wait until we get to the point when college hoops people tell me about the actual skills of players, teams and coaches. It’s going to be swell. Until then, though, it is back to learning about a NFL team who hasn’t done anything of significance other than run through quarterbacks like I do underwear.

Wishing you the best,

College Hoops Fan
