In a week that was termed roadblock week, things went pretty well according to plan with no “Major” upsets.
Andrew Luck, head to head vs. Locker, Luck by far was the more impressive quarterback and looks like he may be able to step in next year and start in the NFL immediately as Sam Bradford has done this year. On the other hand, I am frankly getting tired of the Locker apologist’s. All I hear is he has not support, not talent around him, he has all the skills just not the players blah blah blah….. The guy simply does not win; he has looked inconsistent at the best of times this year and absolutely awful at other times. Yes, there are scouts who are still high on him but there were scouts that were high on Ryan Leaf and a hundred other quarterbacks the Keep Reading…
Cam Newton, definitely the favorite for the Heisman at this point, dominated a very a good LSU defense on Saturday. No, he is not your prototypical NFL QB and needs another year in college before he even thinks about the NFL, but let’s not be so fast in saying this guy has zero chance to be a QB in the NFL. I have watched three of his games this year and the guy has an arm, is pretty accurate and knows where to place the ball. No, he does not have good footwork or mechanics yet and he is a run first quarterback, but he is still learning the game and could develop into a player. Michael Vick and Vince Young both are capable QB’s in the NFL and at times dominant so don’t dismiss Newton.
Taylor Martinez, I hope his 5 touchdowns and Keep Reading…
DeMarco Murray He is getting some attention as a Heisman candidate. I want to see how he runs between the tackles, his balance and burst.
Ryan Broyles Many have Broyles as a late first rounder. His major drawback is his size at only 5-11, 183. I will be looking for how well he gets in and out of his breaks, route running and how he is in the air.
Blaine Gabbert Want to see how he plays against the number #1 team, what are his intangibles like, how well does he throw the ball and how far along is his footwork and mechanics.
Aldon Smith Coming off the leg injury how effective will he be, is he as fast off the snap of the ball and how well does he play against the run.
Tight game, Missouri has been looking Keep Reading…
Because of some difficulties I will not be doing the review of the Wisconsin victory over the Buckeyes, as I was unable to see the game or get a copy of it. Instead I will be reviewing the Auburn win over Arkansas, which proved to be a very entertaining game.
First off my thoughts on the Badgers victory over the Buckeyes, as I mentioned in my preview Ohio State had not yet played any team of substance all year and were playing a Wisconsin team with one lose on their record and needing a victory to stay on pace with the rest of the Big 10. Combine this with the fact that Ohio State had to go on the road to a rowdy night game at Camp Randall, all the pieces were in place for a Badgers win and that is just what happened. The Badgers were able to Keep Reading…
Huge Big Ten battle when the Buckeyes travel to Madison to play the Badgers at the always difficult Camp Randall Stadium, where Wisconsin is 40-4 since 2004. There are many critics of the new #1 team in the country, claiming Ohio State has yet to play any team of substance (Miami now out of the top #25) and have only played one game away from Columbus (Illinois, where they struggled for most of the game). This will be the Buckeyes toughest test to date and they will go against a solid, experienced, senior led Badger team that once again is built on its strong running game, averaging 290 yards per game (16th nationally). This is also a game that means a lot to the Badgers as they are still recovering from their loss to the Spartans two weeks ago in East Lansing. One more loss for the Badgers and they Keep Reading…
