Geaux247 is doing a bowl Pick’em for the Citrus bowl where the LSU fans pick the winner and score. In case of a tie, the website optimistically and cleverly worded how to determine the winner as such, “Tiebreaker will be total yards LSU defense holds Lamar Jackson to.”
“ALL RISE!!! Court is now in session. The honorable Bucket Hat King LJ tha Fiasco presiding. Please be seated and come to order”
Good morning. The BHK would ask that the court ignores the fact he showed up today wearing a wife beater, some gym shorts, and reeking of alcohol. I think I owe it to myself, matter of fact we all do after the worst weekend in Cardinal history and it was not even close. It like all the games we had some bad juju in but still managed to win all got together and decided to nut-punch us when it mattered. Seriously, and this may be the hangover talking, it appears that the juju from Duke, Virginia, and the Wake Forest game all got together and said “hey let Louisville feel great now and over the last 2 weeks of the season lets completely f*** them up. And while we’re at it, lets dropkick their men’s and women’s basketball teams just for good measure because if we are gonna go full-juju we are gonna do it right”.
So sorry if I am a bit bitter this glorious Monday morning but it has been a long 72 hours and I just want to get some sleep. As always I took notes down while I was sober and I am going to read them to the court.
Anybody moves, anybody says anything, you will be removed from the court by @beerwencha2. Don’t let the glass of wine she is holding fool you, she does yoga and has 30 books under her belt. It’s the quiet ones you have to watch out for.
- Look, I have told you all the signs of bad juju earlier this season and I am not about to go back and rehash the same conversation. But as a Louisville fan, you just know when something is off. Upon waking up on Saturday morning I just knew we would play like sh*t. I guess it is my sixth sense. Cold, dreary day. Not a lot of excitement heading into the stadium. Appeared everyone was hungover from turkey day and Friday leftovers. Plus the noon kickoff never helps.
Well, what a wild 120 hours we’ve untangled since Saturday’s plethora of upsets. #2 Michigan, #3 Clemson and #4 Washington all lost, but Louisville still lags behind with a #5 ranking
Opening Thoughts: Why #5?
Personally, I think Louisville should have been ranked fourth behind Alabama, Ohio State and Clemson in that order. But, being ranked fifth with Michigan in front of them basically means they are fourth. At the end of the regular season, someone between Michigan and Ohio State will lose, meaning they will likely eliminate someone from the CFP for good. That will open the door for Louisville, but there will be other teams gunning for that spot with conference championships and bigger games down the road.
We are officially halfway through the season, and Louisville has surpassed all expectations and become a legitimate College Football Playoff contender. However, Louisville may – or may not – need some help down the road to complete its first ever playoff bid. And with only four teams entering the playoff, the air is going to get incredibly thin at the mountaintop, so it’ll be of interest to see how the nation plays out for Louisville’s CFP campaign.
Here are some teams to watch in the coming weeks that could challenge Louisville’s run to its first ever CFP bid.
