In the worlds of both college football and the National Football League the teams around my home are doing very well but they are not really in the driver’s seat. The defending World Champion New Orleans Saints live in a different situation at three losses and over twice as many wins than the fifth ranked LSU Tigers live in. SEC mate Auburn ranked second and unbeaten almost lost to Alabama that is a school LSU beat but they did not lose. Boise State lost in the top five and if there had been two top five losses this weekend then who know whether a National Championship migh have come through somehow. Today they have to play Arkansas but not fo the same stakes. The Saints beat Dallas in the franchise’s first Thanksgiving Day crime.
This Louisiana fan is watching all of this with interest. I hope for happy endings for my teams as many other fans hope for with regard to theirs.
