UPDATED: Thanks to everyone for voting and/or chiming in. I have decided to take a mini vacay to Honolulu. It may be WAC football, but at least it's two of the better teams in that conference. About 64% of you encourage this endeavor, so I skip out on the hoodoo with your blessings. Here's to covering 20.5 on Saturday!
The most entertaining team that no one (outside of Cal or the WAC) has really heard of or seen; the nation's leading rushing attack.
So, I have a bit of a quandary, a small dilemma even. This Saturday at 6:00 local (11 God's Time), I have tickets to go see the Nevada Wolf Pack, and their point a minute Pistol option, take on the Hawaii Warriors in a game with serious WAC and national ramifications (Hawaii sits at 3-2, including a beating of Fresno on the mainland. A Warrior win off the rock never happens, much less a bludgeoning of a bowl-type team; Nevada is ranked #21, is undefeated and every win they have makes Boise's schedule look more formidable prior to the matchup in November on the Smurf Turf).
Another entertaining group, although a bit more high-profile (for the WAC); the nation's leading passing team
However, as we all know, the game against Ole Miss is at 4:53 pm God's Time (noon local). My flight is to depart for Honolulu at 1:00 pm local (6:00 God's Time). This means, of course, that I will miss most of the real game, Alabama versus Ole Miss. This is an important one for us, mentally and for any chance to get to Atlanta. We cannot fall flat again, or fall two games behind Auburn and LSU. I believe that the Crimson Tide absolutely needs all the moral support we can get, no matter how far, or how remote the Hoodoo. On the other hand, I think I am kind of encouraged (although not necessarily mandated) to go watch some defense-optional WAC football, schmooze with folks and drink on the firm's dime. And, everything is covered: Skybox, room, flight, per diem, food and booze. I may not get the opportunity for this very often, and certainly not again this season.
So, what say the good people of Roll Bama Roll?
However, before you vote, you should check out the Haka Ha'a (non-Kiwi version); it may be a tie-breaker.
Should SITP miss the Alabama - Ole Miss game, an important SEC game and an important emotional game to attend the Hawaii - Nevada game, which is arguably just as important on the national scene?
