Top Weekend Events 09/30/2011 – 10/02/2011

Hello Wednesday!  Can you believe October is pratically here??  What happened to the summer?

Just looking at the top weekend events list below, can you guess the trend?  I was pretty spot on with the top NCAA Football games to watch, wasn’t I?  There’s a couple games there that didn’t make my previous list such as the ECU vs. UNC game, South Carolina vs. Auburn, Fresno State vs. Ole Miss, Minnesota vs. Michigan and Buffalo vs. Tennessee. 

With the Gophers vs. Wolverines, while each team has a strong following given their Big-10 Status, Michigan is expected to easily crush Minnesota.  Sorry guys!

The Pirates vs. Tarheels game should be exciting as two home-state teams goes head to head.  ECU has shown a lot of progress this year already, even though they previously lost to two very competitive teams; Virginia Tech and South Carolina.  North Carolina’s schedule has been a bit easier so far, but expect East Carolina to give NCU a run for their money.

Auburn and South Carolina again both have HUGE followings.  Ohandalso, the last time these  two teams were on the field together, it ended with the Tigers embarrassing Steve Spurrier’s Gamecocks in last year’s SEC Championship game, 56-17.  South Carolina will be out for revenge.

Neither Fresno State nor Ole Miss is a particularly stellar team, but the Rebels are getting a lot of attention lately because of Coach Houston Nutt.

The Tennessee Vols are the Dark horse of the SEC conference this year.  Hopefully they can start to turn things around and be the exciting team they used to be.

Top Weekend Events 09/09-09/11

Well, it’s Thursday.  I totally blew is and forgot about Labor Day and my week’s been all messed up.  So, your Wednesday Top Weekend Events post is coming to you one day late.  Happy Thursday!

The top weekend event is the US Open Tennis – Session 24 which is the Men’s Semifinals.  The US Open has been plagued by rainy conditions.  Top players Andy Roddick, Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray were infuriated with the United States Tennis Association for starting their matches in a light mist yesterday.  Their matches were halted after a mere 15 minutes.  The players stated that they didn’t feel “protected” and that the Association was solely after money.  The four players are rescheduled to play today, weather permitting, and whoever comes over the victor will go on to play this weekend in the Quarterfinals tomorrow and semifinals on Saturday and Sunday.

Of course, not to be out shown, NCAA Football is large and in charge on the top weekend list.  The top game this weekend is Penn State vs. Alabama, which kind of seems like an odd pairing; a Big-Ten team versus an SEC Team.  Alabama is ranked #3 and Penn State at #23.  If Penn State upsets the Crimson Tide, it would be a momentous occasion. 

The Notre Dame vs. Michigan game should be of no surprise to draw huge interest.  Both teams draw huge crowds on their own, but since it’s drivable distance between the two, the interest is even greater. Even more so, this game will be played under the lights of Michigan Stadium and both teams will be wearing retro uniforms.

For your concert news and events, Grace Potter will take the stage this Sunday in Nashville.  Her celebrity has really increased a lot after her discovery by Kenny Chesney on You Tube.  That’s not the bands only claim to fame, they have written many tracks for One Tree Hill, performed at 2009 Bonnaroo Music Festival and opened for Dave Matthews Band in 2008.  Keep your eye on Grace Potter and the Nocturnals!

In summation, things to keep your eye on in the coming future NCAA Football (obviously), NFL Football, MLS Soccer, and Jason Aldean.
