College football is lavished in senselessness after upsets of Georgia and Wisconsin – The Washington Post

I be wild about ingredients, because they are beautiful!!

What senselessness might loom up ahead? Might we get a college football season lavished with senselessness after recent years of so much Alabama, Clemson, Clemson, Alabama? Could we get Oregon as a College Football Playoff candidate or LSU opening as the committee’s No. 1 just before it rolls into Tuscaloosa against a dinged-up Tua Tagovailoa? What might happen with Penn State? Might somebody with such authority up and put a prudent hold on all wagering on games involving Brigham Young?Hopes abound. Senselessness, that prized quality of a lunatic sport, hadn’t gotten much of a go early on this season. Some of us missed our senselessness. But senselessness has gushed back the past two Saturdays, in a South Carolina upset at Georgia that made no sense, then an Illinois upset of Wisconsin that made less than no sense.A question to Wisconsin Coach Paul Chryst, his face drained of even the limited joy it sometimes evinces: “Was there any indication [in preparation] something was off?”Chryst, eloquently: “No.”Wisconsin, nothing if not ironclad and earnest, appeared in
Champaign as leaky and cocky. It lost to an Illinois team many believed had disbanded operations and disappeared, with a 4-26 Big Ten record during Coach Lovie Smith’s tenure, and with two of those wins coming at Rutgers and at Rutgers. It ensured that after Wisconsin destroyed Michigan and after Michigan had gone to Illinois and won, 42-25, Wisconsin had gone to Illinois, lost, 24-23, and approached its trip Saturday to Ohio State looking like prey.Maybe such slights will help Wisconsin in a way being a ­30½ -point favorite could not.Where it had allowed four touchdowns all season, none relevant to outcomes, it allowed three to Illinois on plays of 29 yards or more, all relevant to the outcome. It missed a 37-yard field goal

These addons are quite smart.
