I'm back way later.  Pneumonia has a practice of really punching one out.

And too bad, because at least out here in the Sandhills of Nebraska, it's a wonderful glorious beautiful awe-striking autumn day.  It looks like Connecticut.

Northwestern 59, Indiana 38, final
Purdue 14, Michigan 36, final
Michigan State 3, Nebraska 24, final

Iowa 0, Minnesota 0, second quarter

Illinois 0, an obscure state college in Pennsylvania 0, second quarter

Missouri 38, Texas A & M 31, final

Baylor 0, Oklahoma State 31, first quarter

Oklahoma 14, Kansas State 3, first quarter

Well, that's a surprise, although a pleasant one, Nebraska beating Michigan State.

After the debacle up in Minnesota last week, I'd expected Michigan State to run all over us.

Up next week for us, Northwestern plays us here.  Northwestern's 1-3 against Nebraska.

Florida's leading Georgia 7-3 at the moment.

I could never understand this nonsense about playing on a "neutral" field.

Allegedly, Oklahoma plays Texas on a "neutral" field, and Georgia plays Florida on a "neutral" field.

Neutral field, my ass.

Oklahoma plays Texas in Texas, and Georgia plays Florida in Florida.

There's nothing "neutral" about playing an opponent on his own real-estate.

It seems the only game played on a "neutral" field is between Army (West Point, New York) and Navy (Annapolis, Maryland).....played in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

You know, Kansas State is a peculiar case, it having been the perpetual cellar-dweller (along with Colorado) of the Big 8, all the way from the beginning until the 1980s.

It never bothered Kansas State to lose all the time.....to nearly everybody.....because they adamantly insisted, "well, we're an academic institution, not a football college."

Fans of Kansas State and Missouri had, or have, that attitude in common; intellectual snobbery, although Missouri does "condescend" to play good football once in a while too.

Fans of Colorado had that same attitude, but it wasn't based upon their intellectual superiority--which of course they had none--but just simply that while Nebraska won football games, Colorado has mountains.

Whoop-de-doo.  Mountains.

Anyway.  So Kansas State is now a football college, a football factory, but they haven't paid their dues long enough yet, to be considered "great."  They'll have to keep winning games for another 40, 50 years, before they get classed with Nebraska and Oklahoma.

Ditto for the three major teams from Florida, and the two major teams from Oregon.
