Ugh, bye week.

Kevin Jairaj-US PRESSWIRE

BYE WEEK

Without a doubt, two of the worst words in the English language. When used together they mean honey do-list, visits to the in-laws, or a wedding for two people who thought that getting married in the fall suddenly became acceptable because of the aforementioned two words. Sure, on a practical level bye weeks also mean time for the players on your favorite team to heal and prepare, time for your team's coaches to recruit following a big trophy win, and time for you to daydream about your team being 8-1 going into a home game against a conference power. That doesn't change the fact that bye weeks suck.

The one major positives to bye weeks? If you are able to avoid doing all the things you should be doing (i.e. all the tasks you've ignored for over a month's worth of Saturdays in a row) you now have time to watch games you might have otherwise missed for the Gophers. And let's face it, MOAR FOOTBALL is never a bad thing. The tricky part is getting the chance to watch MOAR FOOTBALL.

Looking at the weekend, here are the games that jump out at me:

- Arizona @ Oregon: This is a game I won't watch because seriously, a 10:30 pm kickoff on a Thursday? No.

- Purdue @ Illinois: LOLNOPE. Seriously, AVERT YOUR GAZE. Watching this one is the football equivalent of staring at a solar eclipse without eye protection.

- Alabama @ Mississippi: Forget the SEC NARRATIVE issues. Focus on scenery and the highly unlikely (but highly entertaining from a meltdown perspective if it happens) Bammer fan meltdown due to losing to Ole Miss.

- Oklahoma @ TCU: Not sold on the last game? Well, we are all TCU fans now, so this game should work instead.

- Baylor @ Texas: Goodness, the 2:30 CT slot is packed this Saturday.

- Michigan @ Rutgers: Admit it, you want to see what stupid thing Brady Hoke does this week.

So good luck to you intrepid Gopher fans. May your weekend be filled with extra football in place of yard work, handyman projects, or social gatherings that prevent you from watching football.
