The more I think about it, the more I think that school administrators thinking that trying to keep people from saying "World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party" as a way to keep students from drinking is the STUPIDEST idea of the year in college football, if not all of sports.
Some students will drink to excess, whether you dubbed it "Cocktail Party" or "Wholesome Teetotaling." The only thing this has accomplished is getting students – and alumni – fired up, mostly fighting to MAINTAIN the name, plus drawing the scorn of most media and fans everywhere, most of whom just want to see what happens when a bunch of rednecks and crackers get liquored. (And I hope you know the difference between the two!)
If anything, you get the sense that folks out at the game (and back on campus) will drink MORE, just to spite the stuffy prudes running the show. And THEN what'll the administrators have? Here's a hint: They should call the history department and ask for a refresher course on Prohibition Era America.
With that out of the way, let's get into this week's Top 25 schedule:
3 USC over at Oregon St.
11 Notre Dame over at Navy
18 BC over
21 GA Tech over
25 Oregon over Portland St.
