October 02, 2010
Enjoy it while it's here: October comes in with six games featuring two ranked teams, two of them rare top-10 showdowns. Nationally, the stakes don't get any higher than tonight's SEC/Pac-10 eliminators in Alabama and Oregon. Thanks to Texas, the Red River Shootout is unusually overshadowed by comparison. But if you can't feel the hate in Dallas radiating off your screen, you may be in the wrong place.
What: Game day live blog, all games in play, all day long. All comments welcome.
• When: First kickoff is noon on ESPN; blog kicks roughly simultaneously, running through at least the colossal primetime tilts in Tuscaloosa, Eugene and Iowa City. Come as you please.
• Who: You, of course. And bring along your arch nemesis, just to get into the spirit.
• How: Hit "Watch Now," enter comments into the available box and do your part to accelerate the slow, agonizing death of conventional journalism.
• Why: It's now October. It's the biggest Saturday of the year. It's football. When you think about it, your life really does depend on it, doesn't it?
