An irreverent look at  all things said, considered, tweeted, posted and gone amuck in college football

Week three from outer space: Quick follow up to Washington State Coach Mike Leach’s press conference last week about Big Foot and the existence of life on other planets.

You want an alien sighting?

Saturday night, the University of Mississippi football team is playing a game at Cal.

Close your eyes and image Mike Huckabee shooting heroin with Keith Richards.

Busby, meet Berkeley.

I’d almost pay to see Ole Miss fans, known for rolling out elaborate pre-game picnics on The Grove, with their fine silverware and linens, walking past the freak show on Telegraph Avenue on their way to Memorial Stadium.

This is so rare it’s never happened.

Not only has Ole Miss never played Cal in football.

This marks Mississippi’s first close encounter of any current kind against the Pac 12.

The game must have been scheduled years ago, on Ken Kesey’s bus, between acid trips. Or maybe you think it’s just coincidence the first and last names of Timothy Leary and Trent Lott both start with “T” and “L.”

Far out, man.

Ole Miss does, loosely, claim a 1-0 record versus the Pac, via its 2013 win over Idaho in Oxford.

Idaho, from 1922 to 1959, was a member of the Pacific Coast Conference, which included USC and UCLA, but disbanded after a series of scandals.

Ole Miss should feel right at home. The Rebels are soon set to go before NCAA infractions on a multitude of charges. Matt Luke is also the team’s interim coach because Hugh Freeze resigned just before the season to avoid being fired under the school’s “moral turpitude” code.

Saturday’s game is a 6:30 local kick in Strawberry Canyon.

Pac 12 after moral turpitude Dark.
