There’s college football tomorrow night. Maybe not great college football, but college football.
The stuff the NFL is putting on the field tonight is the caliber of Central Michigan-Southeast Missouri State.
No, at least the Fighting Chippewas will care.
The Buccaneers started Brett Ratliff at quarterback against the Redskins. Josh Freeman getting the night off, I can accept. But Dan Orlovsky?
The Redskins are going with rookie Kirk Cousins, allowing Robert Griffin III to wear whatever he wants on the sidelines. The outlier’s the Giants, who actually put Eli Manning and some starters on the field to go against Ryan Mallett and the Patriots in the Super Bowl rematch.
None of this is news, but it’s particularly distasteful at a time when the league’s nickel-and-diming officials simply because they can.
Speaking of which, tonight’s referee for Patriots-Giants is Don King.
Only in America, indeed.
