Our Thoughts

Brian – I think the biggest news this week is the two teams dropping like rocks, Notre Dame and Oklahoma. Notre Dame looked like the average football team I thought they were, they made a gutsy comeback at the end of the game but it was almost a blow out in their own stadium. they’re well coached and showed a lot of heart, but they’re just not a very good football team. It’s a travesty that they’re still ahead of Michigan State in both the AP and USA Today polls.

Speaking of not good football teams, OU is really bad. They lost to a decent but middle of the pack Pac 10 team in UCLA. No wait, they didn’t lose, they got throttled. I knew they had offensive line problems and that Rhett Bomar is looking really shaky so far, but their defense is pretty average too. They’re going to have to get a lot better if they don’t want to lose 3 or 4 more games this season.

Matt – I swear, college football is the greatest sport ever known to man. The atmosphere surrounding the college game is like no other. This week we had a huge SEC battle with Tennessee traveling to Florida. What a game. However, It is a shame that it was partially decided by such a dumb move by the punter.

Texas proved again how dominate they are, with Jamaal Charles running for 171 yards and 3 touchdowns, in the first half! And on the other end of the spectrum, OU should how awful they are, getting man-handled by UCLA. I did some minor shifting in my poll, but I am still leaving Texas at the #1 spot (USC only won by 53, that is weak). Hook ’em.

    How do you not have Alabama in your Top 25? You loco.

    I had them in at #24 but I couldn’t bring myself to leave B.C. or Notre Dame off. I think Colorado loses to Miami (in a pretty close game) this weekend and I’ll be able to fit Bama in there if they still deserve it.
