Ever feel like watching football is like watching a movie? Does a bad football game seem like a show where the story is boring or cluttered? Do we approach sports looking for a win or a great story?
My 15-year-old daughter is entering the stage of life where her friends are beginning to do dumb, teenager things. I’m thankful that’s she’s open and honest with me about it, but it’s terrifying every time I hear a story of a kid she knows who came to school high or is having sex. It’s brutal.
She’s told me several times that she doesn’t want anything to do with the things she sees the other kids doing, and she was surprised when I said I understood where she was coming from.
“But things are so different than when you were a kid?”
“Yeah, they are. But so much stays the same. It’s just in a different context.”
Not sure what to watch this week? We understand. There’s more than 50 games happening on Saturday and most of them will be good. So here’s what you need to know to get above the noise and the get the most from your college football Saturday.

Maryland vs Penn State, Noon Big Ten Network
Don’t waste your time with Texas vs Oklahoma. Seriously. It’s the game to save Bob Stoops and Charlie Strong’s jobs (which is absurd and incredibly entitled), and neither team will be relevant in the national title race at the end of the season.
Instead, check out the surprising Terrapins try to cement themselves as a legit team this season in the Big 10 as they try to knock of Penn State at home. This should be, as always, a great viewing experience to see the atmosphere at State College. Penn State fans are as obnoxious as anyone, but they know how to support their team. Even though they would like to say they invented football, they did invent some great campus traditions like the “white out”. No matter how you feel, this will be a fun game to watch. [Read More…]
