Poking fun at the college sports world, one Monday at a time....
Celebrity Quote of the Week:
"A very good team is coming to our house and wants to steal something that we own . . . a national championship . . . when the University of Texas Longhorns play for the love of his brother lining up next to him, for the pride of giving his personal best every down, for the honor of every grandparent that could AND could not be at the game, the final whistle will blow and we will be victorious . . . the wannabe thieves will be sent home hurting, humbled, and with a respect for our character."
Random Team of the Week
Troy University Trojans: A 30-point underdog heading into Tallahassee, this team from a school of 6,000 students almost pulled off the season's biggest upset, but Joe Surratt ran in a touchdown from four yards out with 1:56 left to give mighty Florida State a 24-17 win. "It was like having a nightmare where I was trying to run, but I couldn't move my legs," said Florida State coach Bobby Bowden. "I'm trying to scream, but my voice don't work, then you wake up yelling." If you say so, Bobby.

TV Moment of the Week
