Auburn Survives – The Iron Bowl was an absolutely great game and with Oregon surviving Arizona everything seems to be back on track for an Auburn-Oregon BCS game. If you go undefeated in the SEC I don’t think anyone can argue that you don’t belong in the title game.
Boise maybe next year – One of the best football games I have ever seen when the Broncos lost to the Wolf Pack in OT. Boise just ended up on the wrong side of it this time and while I feel bad for Brotzman, those looked like chip shots to me.
Alabama disappointing – All year I thought Alabama had the most talented team in the country and I do still, but they were unable to finish in all of their losses.
Bo Pelini –I understand that there was quite a disparage in the number of Keep Reading…
Iowa will take on the spoiler roll in this game as Ohio State attempts to continue their March towards at least a share of the Big Ten title. Coming into this one the Buckeyes have won 3 in a row since their loss at Wisconsin on October 16. However, OSU’s last 3 victories have come against Purdue, Minnesota and Penn State, who are a combined 12-19 on the year. Iowa on the other hand is trying to and bounce back from an embarrassing loss to Northwestern in what I suspect was classic long ahead game for the Hawkeyes. Iowa will also be trying to avenge last year’s loss in Columbus when they were eliminated from the Big Ten Title chase.
Ricky Stanzi 6’4” 230 QB I have watched a good number of his games this year and I continue to think: nice player who generally Keep Reading…
In a week that there is no marquee game and given the fact that I have spent quite a bit of time in the SEC and Big Ten lately, I thought I would go against the grain and take a look at the Trojans and the Wildcats.
Stanley Havili 6’1″ 230 FB Known mainly as a pass catching fullback, Havili is actually a better blocker then given credit for. As I fullback I will be watching to see how explosive his pop is on contact and if he is as effective blocking the run as the pass.
Jurrell Casey 6’1″ 295 DT Is not seen by most to be in the top tier of the draft eligible DT’s this year but has a good sized frame on him, showing the ability to anchor on contact and demonstrating very good leverage. His main deficiency at Keep Reading…
Cam Newton – I hope that everyone realizes that as of today none of the allegations with regards to a pay-to-pay scenario have been proved. Can we please reserve judgment until that time?
BCS Championship Prediction – Oregon vs. TCU, with Auburn still having to face Alabama in the Iron bowl, as well as a SEC championship game, the likelihood of them escaping without a loss is very low in my opinion. A loss would open the door for TCU, already ahead of Boise in the standings.
TCU – What can you say but wow! I predicted a win by 2 touchdowns but I do not think anyone predicted a 47-7 victory over the 3rd ranked offense in college football.
Marcus Cannon – Excellent size and athletic combination, very few guys that are 6-6, 350 move as well as he does. Now he does need Keep Reading…
Chose this as my game of the week because of the number of top more prospects in the Alabama-LSU game and even though #3 plays #5 neither TCU or Utah will make the BCS championship unless Oregon, Auburn or Alabama lose. Also easier to get tape on the Tide game, although I will be watching the TCU-Utah game.
Marcel Dareus – By most opinions he is a top 10 pick and for my money the most talented defensive lineman in the draft. I reviewed his performance earlier in the year against Florida and he was nicked up and I wanted to see more from him. This week Dareus will go against Barksdale, who a lot of pundits think may be a first round pick. This should be a good test for Dareus and expect him to dominate the less aggressive Barksdale.
Julio Jones – Keep Reading…
