College Football Week 3 Rap

Guess who’s back? Me, with another rap to recap the weekend in college football. In the Week 3 edition, I make fun of Texas for its coin flip debacle, compare a UCLA player to a Backstreet Boy, and, tout the SEC, because not enough people are doing that:

The beat for this song was made by Doug Funny. Lyrics and my current playoff field below:

Heads or tails?
It’s easy, right? Well Texas failed
Receive or defer? The question’s asked
The Longhorns chose to kick in both halves
The Bruins won by three but in the end
What’s a possession or two between friends?
A backup QB won
A long lost Backstreet Boy the former coach’s son
Not all faves escaped
Georgia made mistakes and lost to SC late
Let’s be honest in any other conference
We’d be saying that both teams are nonsense
But in the SEC, let’s just see
We’ll place both teams in the best 15
The Trojans got trampled
By BC just a week after beating Stanford
Va Tech beat the Bucks
Then lost to ECU I guess everybody sucks
Rutgers got tricked
First game in the Big Ten and threw five picks
Florida survived a scare
But at Bama on Saturday’s a real nightmare
It’s B-Z reporting on Week 3
Like what you see and hear then please tweet me

My playoff field, if it started today:

Also considered: Alabama, Oklahoma Note: Oregon vs Baylor would break football.

Here is my rap for the second week of the college football season. It was a bad week for the Big Ten in general and Michigan in particular, and the lyrics reflect that:

Why Michigan Needs Notre Dame on the Schedule

Saturday marks the last time for the foreseeable future that Michigan will play Notre Dame. Over the next two seasons, Michigan plays Utah, Oregon State, UNLV, BYU, Hawaii, Central Florida, and Colorado out of conference. As Jay-Z said, “When you’re used to filet mignon, it’s kind of hard to go back to Hamburger Helper.”

The cancellation of a series between the two most successful programs in college football history is good for nobody. But it’s particularly bad for Michigan. The aforementioned nonconference opponents don’t inspire excitement like Notre Dame. Later years look more promising: Florida shows up on Michigan’s schedule in 2017, followed by Arkansas the two years after that, and UCLA. Oklahoma appears eventually, though many of the players in that game are currently in second grade.
