Monday Morning Twitter Pages: Chicken $*** Edition


The struggle is real.  A simple four worded phrase recently added to our culture’s growing list of ironic and sarcastic phrases.  While it’s origin may be credited to something more PC than ‘first world problems’.  It has morphed into something much bigger across all walks of life, including college football.

Their was plenty of struggle in the weekly reality TV drama of college football in week 8.  A top five team finally scored less points than the unranked team they faced, and the proverbial ‘hot seat’ is now gaining traction in many parts of the country.  As the weeks dwindle, the blood pressure of coaches, athletic directors, players, and fans will continue to rise.  There will be several more upsets and one team will be on the outside looking in when the top four teams are announced.

On a Saturday night in Tempe, struggle took center stage during homecoming weekend.  With several key players out or injured during the game the cardiac Sun Devils could not finish their fifth attempt at a shocking come from behind upset win.  Before the half, ‘Time out’ Todd Graham was M.I.A. with the team approaching midfield with under one minute to play and three timeouts remaining.  Unfortunately he returned in the 2nd half spending all three timeouts, leaving none for the furious late game heroics of his team on both sides of the ball.  The homecoming loss was the Sun Devils first since 2012 and left many fans questioning the trajectory of the program.  It has certainly been a struggle to remain injury free this season, but let us not forget 2016 was to be a rebuilding year for a team severely lacking in the experience department.

Week 8 is now in the rear-view mirror as week 9 approaches.  Dedicating the last look at the previous week that was to ‘The struggle is real’, here are your Monday Morning Twitter Pages … Chicken $*** edition.
