Welcome everyone ! Welcome to the end ! This is the end of a lot of things in college football this year. And by and large it shall be good! This is the last year of the lousy BCS system as next year we go to a playoff system as every other sport in the history of earth has had for a century or more.
Also this year we will have Ohio State and USC off of probation [ although Lane Kiffin has arguably run the Trojans a ground already ]. The end of the terrible, terrible division names for the Big Ten [ Leaders and Legends … what were they possibly thinking?] Northwestern a legend ?... academically … Yes!! Illinois Leaders ?…if you mean mafia leaders .. then yes!!!! In football … not so much. How about naming the divisions the Nerds and the Underachievers divisions. Anyhoo I kid the big 10.
The other thing that hopefully will come to an end this year is the horrible nonconference schedules that the power house teams play. It’s always been a bit that way but it’s gotten absurd the last couple years , there are only a handful of top 25 teams that will venture to play anyone of reasonable strength outside of their conference schedule . Hopefully with a playoff system starting next year teams will be forced to improve their strength of schedule to make sure they have enough quality opponents to get into the playoffs.
If you’re a Football fan and not just an Astrology fan you know the face of College Football is massively changing with big name teams switching conferences and some conferences almost completely changing the last few years [ Big East , Big 12 , Conference USA].
As the game evolves [ Pluto] we see more of these changes as Super Conferences continue to be created and the smaller conferences are getting weaker. The big name teams are staying away from playing any kind of quality non conference opponents . This has always been kinda true but even more so now as teams conference schedules get tougher with more teams in them and with 1 loss almost eliminating you from National Championship Contention . So what we see this year from the schedules is very few good non conference matchups . What does this mean? it means that picking the upsets will be that much more important.
This past couple year’s what I’ve noticed quite a bit in sports with Astrology is that it appears that many teams in the major sports [ especially in the professional level ] were created in the late 1960’s and therefore have Saturn in the low degrees of Aries which is being transited by Uranus currently.
Saturn is structure and discipline and the status quo and rules Offense in Football . Uranus rules chaos and excitement and surprising events. How we see this transit play out in the chart of a sports team or an individual player is you get an incredible effort one day and then they are a complete shamble the next . You will notice every year in sports there are teams that pull huge upset ‘s one game and then lose to a far inferior team the next week .
Now an added caveat to this is that if Uranus is hitting your Saturn it’s more of a good thing if you’re traditionally bad , because you want the status quo upset .If you’re traditionally good , you don’t want the status quo upset .
That being said you will see an upset or 2 every week but there’s usually a few weeks during the season where you will see more upsets than usual. These are usually centered around planetary statons [ normally Saturn, Uranus, Neptune or Pluto].
Here are the weekends in college football where you can expect to see more upsets than normal:
September 21- Pluto stations on 09/20
November 9- Okay I’m calling it right here …. this is going to be the weird one this season. Jupiter stations on 11/7 Mercury stations on 11/10 and Neptune stations on 11/13. That’s 3 stations in 1 week , I don’t know exactly what’s going to happen here but it is going to be interesting and there will be surprises.
November 16 – Neptune stations on Wed 11/13 so this energy may be felt on both Saturday 11/9 and 11/16
December 17- Uranus stations on this day which is early in Bowl season. Expect all the games around this day to be wacky.
Another key date to keep in mind is October 19. Mars enters Virgo earlier that week so expect corrections to be made: Any weak teams with surprising records may be exposed and any traditional powers that have underachieved to this point may right their ship.
So here’s what’s in store for this season along with my predictions.
