The 2009 Football Season is Winding Down

As we ease into Thanksgiving Week, the football season is starting to slowly come to a close as teams finish their regular season games or lose in their playoffs. Although this means less and less games each week, it also means more intense games as only the better teams are still playing.

After spending most of Saturday with Mike and Laurie at our house watching college football, on Sunday we went to Mike and Vanessa's house to watch the NFL game between New Orleans and Tampa Bay.

Vanessa got out the snacks necessary for good NFL TV watching.

Mike teaching me the fine details of preparing a Power Point presentation.

I am in the process of setting up a series of meetings with the Senior football players at the 14 colleges that still play football in southern California from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo down to San Diego State. The purpose of these meetings is to make these players aware of the possibilities that await them if they are bold enough to enjoy the adventure that is playing American football in Europe!

Nice shoes Mike!


Wabash at Illinois Wesleyan

Denver's Wabash Little Giants (9-2) lost their NCAA Division III first round playoff game to Illinois Wesleyan in double overtime 35-41. This ends their season.

Taber's San Diego Toreros (4-7) ended their season with a loss to Southern Utah by a score of 32-37.

Jason's Arizona Wildcat's (6-4) suffered a heart breaking loss 41-44 to Oregon in yet another double overtime contest. They play at arch-rival Arizona State this week.

My Washington Huskies (3-7) had a bye as they prepared for this week's Apple Cup game at home against the Cougars of Washington State. OK, so some not so good teams are still playing college footballs.

Larry's Nebraska-Omaha (7-4) squad continues their work for their Dec. 5th Kanza Bowl game against West Texas A&M.

Both Brandon's Willamette Bearcats (8-2) and Matt's Hardin-Simmons Cowboys (6-4) ended their seasons last week.

Now we move on to
Hässleholm's Favorite Teams

The University of Miami Hurricanes (8-3) defeated Duke 34-16 and finish their regular season this week at the University of South Florida.

The Tulsa Golden Hurricane (4-7) lost their game at Southern Mississippi 34-44. Tulsa's last game this week is at home against Memphis.


Our favorite NFL team, the New Orleans Saints (10-0), closed out the weekend as they cruised to a 38-7 victory over the Tampa Bay Bucs today. Their next game will be a tough one in New Orleans against the New England Patriots on Monday Night Football.
