THE BIRDDOG WEEKEND VIEWING GUIDE, WEEK 1

Just in case you want to know what I’m watching at any given moment this weekend.

Here’s how I prioritize:

  1. Navy (duh)
  2. Navy’s upcoming opponents
  3. Georgia Tech
  4. Baylor
  5. San Diego State
  6. Whatever’s interesting.

The last four are somewhat interchangable. Times are eastern.

–Thursday, September 3rd–

South Carolina at North Carolina State, 7:00 p.m., ESPN (HD): Because it’s on.
North Texas at Ball State, 7:30 p.m., ESPNU (HD): I’ll probably be flipping back & forth (sorry Goalielax). I’m curious to see Ball State in the post-Hoke/Davis era. Honestly, though, I’m not sure I’ll really get a feel for that against North Texas. Never mind, I’ll stick with Carolina/NC State.
Utah State at Utah, 9:00 p.m., The Mtn.: HI ADAM.
Oregon at Boise State 10:15 p.m. ESPN (HD): I *heart* LeGarrette Blount.

–Friday, September 4th–

Tulsa at Tulane, 8:00 p.m., ESPN (HD): Because it’s on.

–Saturday, September 5th–

Navy at Ohio State, 12:00 p.m., ESPN (HD): Duh.
Baylor at Wake Forest, 3:30 p.m., ABC/ESPN2/Gameplan: Kill two birds with one stone on this one. The next stage of human evolution, ROBERT GRIFFIN, is a good test to see how Wake’s defense stacks up to last year’s. I’ll probably have Nevada-Notre Dame on the rabbit ears.
Louisiana Tech at Auburn, 7:00 p.m., ESPNU (HD): Week 2’s opponent.
Maryland/Cal, LSU/Washington, 10 & 10:30 p.m., ESPN/2: Flip until one interests me enough to stick with it.

–Sunday, September 6th–

Ole Miss at Memphis, 3:30 p.m., ESPN (HD)
Colorado State at Colorado, 7:00 p.m., FSN

–Monday, September 7th–

Cincinnati at Rutgers, 4:00 p.m., ESPN (HD)
Miami at Florida State, 8:00 p.m., ESPN (HD):
For a half, anyway. Gotta get up early for the drive to DC in the morning. Yes, I’m a pansy. Bite me.

Oh, and one more thing… There is now a Birddog group on Facebook. I did not create it, but I endorse it. It’s got what plants crave. It’s got ELECTROLYTES.

  1. Someone on GoMids.com told me that you could watch the Army-EMU game online at 7pm. If so, I’ll be watching that while my TV flips b/t the La. Tech game and the VT v. Alabama game.

  2. LOL at Tony Licari creating that Facebook group. He used to do Top 10 lists for our company.

  3. Oregon-Boise State may be the best game of the entire weekend, although it may also be the toughest on the eyes…Oregon’s unis on the blue turf, oof.

  4. Speaking of Army FWIW, Army’s new head coach (names escapes me and I don’t have time to look it up) asked Paul Johnson if he could bring his staff to ATL to “observe and learn”. CPJ said NO.

  5. LOL seriously? Is there mention of that anywhere? That would be awesome.

  6. Mike,
    If you’re asking about PJ and Ellerson, PJ basically says it during this press conference: http://cstvpodcast.cstv.com.edgesuite.net/georgiatech/090109_georgiatech_press.mp3?_kip_ipx=692826615-1251927209

    PJ says that he allows high school and college coaches to come to GT to see how they do things, but he didn’t allow Ellerson to come, even though the two of them are good friends, because of his loyalty to Navy. He also says that while he was at Navy, he didn’t let coaches come if they were scheduled to play GSU in the future.

  7. Awesome.

  8. that is awesome — I like that jerk even more

  9. Facebook group now has a picture up.

  10. as much as i love KN – i do miss CPJ’s press conferences

  11. That picture is fantastic.

  12. This blog is becoming cult-like….it reminds me of an Obama rally. But I can’t complain because I made the FB group. So I added to cultiness.

  13. You know my tolerance for politics, Salty…

  14. SaltySam98, I know what you mean. And I am the moderator of the football fans section so I feel pleasantly brainwashed.

  15. Yeah, about that… I submitted a trivia question once, and it keeps showing the wrong answer. The single season sack leader is Tyler Tidwell, not David Mahoney. Get on that, KK!

  16. Mike, I will see what I can do. But I do not think it will let me edit a trivia question unless someone flags it as incorrect.

  17. haha – I got that one wrong and was all WTF!! Mike, you owe me 10 points.

  18. While PJ saId no to Rich Ellerson now he’s with Army he did have RE and his Cal Poly staff in for a coaches exchange when he was at Navy. So the Army guys did get a chance to learn from the Zen master of the spread option. All these guys are at Army now.
    The good news for Navy was that Coach Ken met Joe DuPaix during the visit and hired Cal Poly’s Co- Offensive coordinator when he became head coach last year.

  19. lololololol

    yeah, about legarrette blount…

  20. You might want to rethink the LaGarrette Blount love. Looks like he took youngster boxing.
