THIS IS AN UPDATE FOR THE EDSBS CHARITY BOWL AND THIS IS THE LINK TO DONATE. READ ON FOR AN UPDATE ON STANDINGS. CLICK HERE TO PUT MONEY TOWARDS A GREAT CAUSE. THIS IS AN ALL-CAPS REMINDER YOU SHOULD ALWAYS PUT YOUR DONATION LINKS AT THE TOP OF A POST LIKE THIS.

You should know that when you walk into the Georgia Tech football lounge, one of the first things you will see is something on the wall talking about the average starting salary of a Georgia Tech graduate. This says something about your football program and school. It probably means that you are yes, very smart, and in addition to being very smart have skills valued in the marketplace. We’re petting your head when we say that. You can feel that, right? YOU’RE SO SMART AND PRETTY.

It also may mean that your team knows they will have to get players who are smart, and that yeah, maybe that’s why we run the triple-option to level the playing field, because players who are book-smart and have the scores and chops to keep up—and who yet are big and fast—are very, very hard to find.

It’s a double-edged sword, is what we’re saying. The downside is that you might have a harder time getting recruits. The upside is that when you graduate, you are able to earn money when you go pro in something other than football. You know, so you won’t have to go back to digging graves, which is literally what Georgia Tech B-back Dedrick Mills did to help his family in Waycross out before he got a scholarship.

You can use that money to give to the EDSBS Charity Bowl, for instance. Two Yellow Jacket grads did that in spectacular fashion, each giving over a grand to put Georgia Tech in second place despite having only 11 donors. Their giving pattern is pure triple-option: the big runs don’t happen often, but when they do they go big.

Michigan, meanwhile, continues to just Air Raid the hell out of this, and that’s delightful. Standings as of about 10 a.m. this morning are as follows:

MICHIGAN CANNOT STOP SCORING
WE SEE YOU U OF ALASKA-ANCHORAGE
WE SEE THAT 20-19, FSU DONOR

AS ALWAYS: DONATE DONATE DONATE DONATE DONATE.

Today’s donation is in honor of the best football game we watched all year last year, the Rose Bowl. The scoreboard says USC won, but we all know no one lost that game, because it was ridiculously entertaining, finished with a total of 100 points on the board, blazed away until the last second, and happened in the most beautiful venue in sports.

THE ONLY MONEY WE WILL EVER PLEDGE TO A PRIVATE SCHOOL Y’ALL

Also, the score means we have to give more, and that’s fine. No one really loses in this contest, either, though we will give the credit for the donation to USC because they scored more points.
