New, comment

There’s a game in Sydney. These animals are good.

No. 14 Stanford and Rice are going to play a football game in Sydney, Australia at 10 p.m. ET on Aug. 26, one of the first games of the college football season. Stanford’s gonna win.

With all that out of the way, let’s get to the important matters.

Yeah, there’s a game in Australia. It happened last year, too. It’s pretty weird, but whatever.

Archer is now college football’s best kangaroo. Cry about it, Akron.

The ‘roo is ranking higher, because he is more cuddly.

The koala needs to learn to enjoy living in a cuddly pouch if it wants to improve on some of these rankings.

At this point, you might be thinking Archer the kangaroo is gonna run away with this whole thing ...

... until you see Tabbi’s incredible mind-meld with Stanford’s head coach.

Tabbi just learned everything there is to know about winning 10 games per year, recruiting large offensive linemen, and getting five-star quarterbacks to sit on the bench. Tabbi is going to lead some lucky program to so many Fiesta Bowls.

I like Tabbi for the UCLA job.
