Philosophy football V

Tomorrow sees Cora Diamond, Richard Rorty, and Tal Brewer (among others) go head-to-head with Kelly Dean Jolley, Reshef Agam-Segal, Mandel Cabrera, James Shelley (and others) in the unfortunately-sponsored Chick-fil-A Bowl.

Virginia is the underdog, as you might expect given that Diamond has retired and Rorty is no longer with us. They also got hammered during the regular season by Jim Klagge's Virginia Tech. And it's tigers against cavaliers, which sounds pretty one-sided to me. Perhaps it's just as well that I'll be out when the likely mauling of my alma mater occurs.


  1. I dunno. Auburn might have more upside, but they definitely aren't that great this year. There's hope.

    I'm preparing for the Matt Pianalto (Arkansas) vs. Mike Austin (Kansas State) match in a week...

  2. Yeah, it should be a close game. So there's hope.

    I don't fancy the chances of the little apple against a bunch of razorbacks. But mascots and nicknames are probably not the best guide to who will win the actual game.

  3. Matt beats Mike, as predicted, and Kelly Jolley et al. are victorious. Congratulations!
