still summer.

As the home opener approaches every year, I want nothing more than to wake up on game day and be greeted by cool, fall air as I open the garage door and begin loading the truck.

And for the opener, at least, that almost never happens.

It’s not going to happen this year either. With tremendous disappointment, I present my annual weather forecast roundup for Saturday’s game against Buffalo:

As we approached the start of last season, I was definitely grumbling about the weather forecasts for the opener against Akron — the highs were supposed to be in the upper 80s, and that, boys and girls, is not football weather.

And as it turned out, the forecasts were wrong. It was nearly 100 degrees instead.

I did get a good shot at some early football weather for the Michigan State game, so it all balances out in the end.

What can we look for on Saturday? I’m actually thinking it’s not going to be bad. Here’s a look at your patented Killer Nuts Tailgating Gameday Weather Forecast Roundup:

you get what you ask for.

As we approached the start of the 2011 season, I spent an entire post griping about the heat we were to experience during the Akron game.

And I was right, sort of. The temps didn’t peak that day in the upper 80s; they got close to 100 instead.

I know we’re always going to have some warm-weather games early in the season, but that doesn’t stop me from hoping for some actual football weather as soon as we can get it.

Even if that means we’re getting November on Oct. 1:

I wanted football weather, and I’m going to get it tomorrow morning. Y’all dress appropriately, and we’ll see you there.
