Editor: Yielding to the inevitable, I am naming the Rev. Dr. CB Scott as the Sports Editor of SBC Voices. It is just the recognition of reality!
Hello Sports Fans! The weekend we have all been waiting for is upon us. During these dull months with nothing but Trad and Cal fights to attend in the Baptist Blog World I know you all have been longing with baited breath for College FOOTBALL season to arrive so you can feel alive once more as the leaves fall down to the earth and the B-B-Q smoke ascends into the clouds.
It is my good pleasure as a bona fide FOOTBALL genius and prognosticator to share my knowledge with you to help you know how to enjoy the greatest of all Sports Seasons. Now please understand I am not being boastful. I was blessed to be born in a SEC Nation. All humans born within the FOOTBALL Nations of the SEC are of genius caliber about FOOTBALL. This is especially true of those so fortunate to be born in the SABANATION of which I am one. Yes, it is my humble joy to have been born a Sabanite.
So here goes Sports Fans! Let’s get the season started with a SEC style bang!!!
Any self respecting Sports Fan who owns a remote control will be checking to see the SEC Nations on his TV no matter what FOOTBALL Conference he lives in at the moment. I have a great compassion for all you fans who live in the Lesser Conferences, so I am going to share with you the SEC lineup for this weekend so you can flip that remote from your Lesser FOOTBALL Nation’s play-like game to the real thing with much more ease.
Aug. 30 – South Carolina will play a SEC sister Nation, Vanderbilt.
Aug. 30 – Texas A&M makes their first SEC appearance against Louisiana Tech
Aug. 31 – Tennessee will stomp N.C. State in the Chick-Fil-A Kickoff Game in Atlanta.
Sept. 1 – Georgia will dine on Buffalo
Sept. 1 – Florida will bowl over Bowling Green
Sept. 1 – Auburn will Clean Clemson in another Chick-Fil-A Kickoff game in Atlanta.
Sept. 1 – The LSU SWAMP LIZARDS will burn down North Texas
Sept. 1 – Mississippi State will win one against Jackson State (I hope).
Sept. 1 – Arkansas will venture into Alabama and put a whuppin’ on Jacksonville State. (The only Alabama team they will defeat this year.)
Sept. 1 – Missouri will travel south and make mules out of Southeastern Louisiana.
Sept. 1 – Kentucky will take a bus ride over to Louisville and pluck the feathers out of the Cardinals.
Then there is the big one!
The SABANATION will be in Arlington, TX for the Cowboy Classic and take the hides off of a little band of Wolverines from Michigan. That one will be on ABC at 8:00 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT
And finally, for all you folks so unfortunate to live in Iowa and cheer for the Lesser Nation known as the BUZZARD-EYES, who do not have corn to harvest or pigs to feed, Northern Illinois will be roasting your feathers on August 31. If I were you, I would just watch the Tennessee game and wish I lived in the SEC where real FOOTBALL is played. Bless your hearts.
Can you hear it? I can! It is ROLL TIDE ROLL!!!
