The Bowden Bowl

Florida State plays Clemson in less than two hours, and I can already feel my heart pounding in my chest as if the game is tied with seconds left in the fourth quarter and FSU is attempting to win by kicking a field goal.

I don't know why I'm so nervous. I mean, it's Clemson, for crying out loud. They're not even ranked this year. It's nothing like last year when my 'Noles started the year against Miami and I had to turn off the tv and have a friend call me to tell me that it was okay to turn the game back on.

Still, I take the whole thing so damn seriously. Too damn seriously. I think this is why people drink when watching football.

I agree with Bobby Bowden: The Bowden Bowl is just not fun anymore. Plus, if Florida State loses, my whole fall is going to be shot, and it hasn't even started yet.

Ooooh just reading this now. Sorry about last night

Just reading this on Monday morning... I'd feel sorry except that college football is a joke in the first place. And Florida is the defending champs.

Regardless, I don't find this very surprising. Florida State could roll out a bunch of PH4H blog contributors and still be ranked at the beginning of the season.

Oh... and at least you're not a Michigan fan like Steve.

I thought you were a Gator fan. Are you allowed to root for both?

Bobby needs to retire.
