#5: PUSH THE BBUTTON!
Braxton Miller shined last night against Virginia Tech and I have to say I knew he would! Buckeyes Head Coach Urban Meyer made a smart decision in moving him to Wide Receiver and the SPIN MOVE Braxton did still plays in my mind on REPEAT!
I also pointed out that THAT TEAM UP NORTH lost, but I will not give them an extra sentence. LOL!
#4: Grambling State University’s Marching BAND
Although Grambling State’s football team lost to California 73-14, the BAND WON THE WEST! It was amazing to images and video of the band performing at Apple’s Headquarters and to see them prepare for game day. They rocked the West Coast at halftime and all you could see on my timeline were FANS who were happy they stayed for the Halftime show. Major Shoutout to GSU’s band and this was a great exposure for all HBCUs.
#3: HAIL MARYYYYYY, BYU!!
I MEAN LOOK AT THIS CATCH! LOOK AT HIS FACE! Nebraska was beating BYU until backup Quarterback Tanner Magnum connected with Mitch Mathews! There was even a HUG FOR THE REF after the play. But my enjoyment was heightened by this
#2: The HBCU Discussion
Now I will save all the dialogue for another post sponsored by HBCU Gameday BUT I will say that FANS were willing to chat with me while Alcorn State University was playing Georgia Tech last Thursday.
Top two questions of the chat: How can HBCUs recruit with Power 5 conferences? Where is the HBCU pride?
Make sure you are following @FansFavoriteFan and my personal page @MississippiDawn for great twitter chats during this College Football season.
AND THE NUMBER ONE SPOT GOES TO………………….
#1: Rocky Top’s Alvin Kamara with his RB Debut
It was his time. He has worked for this. 15 carries, 144 yards rushing & 2 Touchdowns. DO WORK #RichHomieKamara!!!!! I will also save my thoughts on his transition from Alabama to Tennessee but let me just say that it is a blessing to see this young man win.
