My predictions about rice aside, there's a football game tomorrow, and we kinda sorta maybe should talk about it.
For the record, we'll do basketball stuff Sunday, and the official Sippin' on Purple basketball preview edition of the website will be Tuesday - yeah, UT-Pan American doesn't scare me so bad. Sry.
Jump! Feel the apathy!
I am easily excitable about football games. I even got excited in anticipation of the Indiana game. I've got nothing for this one, though. Large numbers of yards are gained as Northwestern wins, 49-35.
Northwestern, 49, Rice, 35
I'm gonna be steamed if we lose this one. I expect us to fry Rice, with Colter running wild for long grains and Persa cooking up nice passes to Ebert. Our defense, though, is always a bit sticky. Sometimes our defensive backs get burned into krispies, and our linebackers look like they're stuck in pudding. It's enough to get you boiling mad. But I know Paddy Fitzgerald won't let his guys get threshed. He'll have them puffed up for this game. We're going to smell like jasmine when this is all said and done.
Northwestern 38, Rice 21
