Trojans. Chippewas. Let’s talk. Don’t y’all know you’re on television? The people demand points! We should have sixty on the board by now between your two ballistic offenses; instead we’re stuck in a 10-9 slog with Troy on top. The announcers have been reduced to talking about tomorrow’s title game in every break, and are pretty gracefully avoiding pointing out that they are stuck in Mobile*, which is not Pasadena. Not even a “Bad, Bad Levi Brown” joke, Tessitore? We’re dyin’ here. A disputed illegal forward pass call has been the emotional high point of this game.
*Kidding. Mobile is beautiful and has great fried pickles. The good kind that are cut in spears.
