Seedy K’s Peerless Pigskin Prognostications: Week I

endimagesYo, yo, yo, football fans.

Seedy K here. They call me the Grande Poobah of Pigskin Predictionarianism.

College is my game, Conjecture is my name.

I hope you’re as ready for another season as I am. I know the players are. I know the coaches are. Except, uh, Tim Beckman, who was scalped by the Fighting Illini hierarchy a week before kickoff. Buh, bye, Timmy.

Forget the heat. Forget the humidity. Forget the seriously anxious fan bases in Crimson Country — the Tide hasn’t rolled all the way in, what, three years now — or Scarlet Territory — the Buckeyes are unanimous pre-kickoff #1.

When I returned, I clicked on the telly, and there were the Hoosiers up 10.

So, I set to unpacking my vittles. When I next took notice of the game, about five minutes of game clock later, Illinois was up 9. I figured this game deserved my attention.

Which proved to be so. The Crimson & Crean came back again, going up one with under a minute to play, then setting a great trap for a steal and score to increase the advantage to 3, then closing out the home team, in front of the largest crowd ever for a game in C-U, 80-74.

Scintillating January conference action. Continue reading Hoopaholic’s Gazette: Hoosiers, Hoyas, Hoos & HooHaws!!!
