What’s Chapping the Commish? Vol 22. CFB Reg Season vs. CBB Reg Season

I know what you are thinking, this isn’t even a debate.  It’s college football all the way, and I don’t discredit that at all.  The Commish is all for anything football except the UFL, that’s like watching the Raiders vs. Browns.  But the question isn’t which one is better it’s about taking what works from one and combining them to make a super baby ala Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen.

NFL week 15 Storylines

It was a huge victory last night for the Cowboys as they took down the previously undefeated Saints.  Last nights victory comes on the heels of a great Thursday Night Battle between the Jaguars and Colts.  The Colts won that game and remained undefeated at 14-0.

 

Some of the other major storylines heading into Sunday’s normal slate of games:

  • Chris Henry’s untimely passing has the Bengals reeling as they head into Sundays crucial AFC matchup with the Chargers.
  • Vinny Cerrato “resigned” this week and has moved on from being the Redskins main decision maker.  Not really newsworthy when everyone knows it’s going to happen.
  • Randy Moss is taking some heat from the NFL Media for supposedly tanking it last week.
  • Lawrence Phillips was sentenced to 31 years in jail for his crimes.

Thursday thinks

  • I think it’s a horrible way to start the day this morning, RIP Chris Henry.  Even with all his past history, this was a shocking end.  Where do the Bengals go from here? 2 horrible tragedies this year.  Good luck to them.
  • I’m thinking what took so long for Tiger’s wife to get the divorce process started? (if the reports of it happening are true by almost every news source)
  • I think if you don’t have the NFL network you are going to miss some great games on Thursday and Saturday this week.  I won’t shed a tear.
  • I think Vinny Cerrato being let go is a move that had to happen for the Redskins.  Bringing in someone else doesn’t change the fact that you have an owner who has way too much input on running the team.
  • I’m thinking I better get started on Christmas shopping.  Only one more week…ouch.
