During American Revolution War of old times, "minutemen" soldiers, led by legendary patriot Pavel Revere, is defending Massachusetts SSR from imperial armies of Great Britain. Later, is releasing punk rock music album "Double Kopeyki on the Ruble."

Is peculiar custom of American sports team to choose nickname of patriotic symbol: Eagles, Patriots, Yankees, Generals, Bullets, Minutemen, 76ers, Independence, Freedom, Liberty, Pursuit of Happiness….

Okay, last name on list is not nickname of sports team (that KGB is yet finding). But is accurate description of cliché American motivation. Other word with same meaning is “selfishness.” When he is writing Declaration of Independence, stupid Tomas Jefferson is writing wrong words. Should be “life, liberty, and pursuit of whining like hungry piglet!”

After Soviet takeover of America, is debate behind Kremlin walls of changing American college football team nicknames to better reflect new world order. Central committee is making list of acceptable nicknames: Reds, Redbirds, Red Socks, Big Red, Red Wolves, Bears, Crimson Tide, Miners, Hammers, Sickles, Cornhuskers. But is too many teams. Ultimate decision is to allow existing nicknames, as gesture of kindness to ungrateful American people. Also, holodets (meat jello) with pickled cabbage is now only snack available at stadiums.

As in Tier 1 playoffs, quarterfinal round of Tier 2 playoffs is finding most higher-seed teams winning. Only exception is surprise upset victory by UMass Minutemen over #2 Top Power rank Georgia Southern Eagles. Is similar to when Georgy Washington is killing last bald eagle living in Pennsylvania SSR, to roast over fire at Valley Forge and eat by self, while common soldiers of lower rank is freezing, starving, and dying in brutal winter conditions.

Here is ROUND 2 results of 2014 Tier 2 playoffs:

Game: Tier 2 Quarterfinal
Location: Fort Collins, CO
Final Score: Colorado State 34, Tulane 20
Notes: With superior balance on offense and defense, top-ranked CSU is making relative easy victory over Tulane Green Wave. But Tulane is performing better than expectation in playoffs, finally climbing into Top Power 25. Rams is now advancing to Tier 2 semifinal round, for second season consecutive. Perhaps next year, Colorado State is taking resplendent green and orange uniform to Tier 1 level? But first, can Rams beat UMass this week?

Game: Tier 2 Quarterfinal
Location: Statesboro, GA
Final Score: UMass 37, Georgia Southern 30
Notes: In biggest upset of playoffs Round 2, Minutemen is traveling south into enemy territory and defeating opponent who is spending entire season in Tier 2 Top Power 10 ranking. Minutemen defense is even match with GSU offense, but in end, UMass offense is proving better than Eagles defense, and UMass is taking muskets to next round, to face top-seed Colorado State Rams.

Game: Tier 2 Quarterfinal
Location: San Marcos, TX
Final Score: Texas State 39, Appalachian State 29
Notes: In match of top-10 offenses, Bobcats is showing superior firepower. Texas State is climbing to #2 Top Power rank for second time this season, while Appalachian State is returning to mountains to drown sorrows in illegal homemade alcohol. KGB is eventual finding, raiding, and arresting suspects. Texas State is next facing Hilltoppers of Western Kentucky in semifinal Round 3.

Game: Tier 2 Quarterfinal
Location: Bowling Green, KY
Final Score: Western Kentucky 60, Illinois State 25
Notes: Hilltoppers is following epic takedown of top-ranked Western Michigan in Round 1 with utter destruction of Illinois State Redbirds in Round 2. With top-ranked offense in Tier 2, WKU is proving to perhaps be surprise, most-dangerous team remaining in playoffs. But is Hilltoppers also having foot of Achilles in weak, #57-rank defense? Texas State is finding out in Round 3.

Intern Bobby is saying...OMG, speaking of soldiers starving at Valley Forge, I’m like, soooo hungry since I woke up from the hyperbaric sleep chamber. I think the super-rich oxygen like, messed with my metabolism or something, because I have this GIGANTIC appetite. Every day, I’m like OUTTA MY WAY, I’M EATING ALL OF THE EMERGENCY STORES, but Georgy got all weird and angry about it, and now he’s making me ration. I told him (jokingly) that he would have to like, put a padlock on the food storage chamber doors. But then he totally did, and now I’m all like, “ughhhh” and back to eating slices of potato skin that I soak in the hot tub (because the water adds a kinda salty taste) and roast in the furnace.

ROUND 3 OF PLAYOFFS IS FINAL FOUR!

Here is schedule for Round 3 semifinals of Tier 2 playoffs:

  • (1) Colorado State (13-1, #1) vs.
    (7) UMass (11-3, #6)
  • (3) Texas State (12-2, #2) vs.
    (4) Western Kentucky (12-2, #3)

Is good semifinal schedule. Is shame #4 seed Georgia Southern Eagles is losing. But remember, many Tier 2 teams is possible for promotion to Tier 1 next season, even if losing in playoffs. Is also possible for champion team, like 2013 North Texas Mean Green, to not qualify for promotion, if fans is not attending game in sufficient numbers.
