Our Thoughts

Brian – I’m finally with Berg on this one, Texas is the number one team in the country. I’m not ready to drop them out of my poll like he is, but they’ve looked very average against every half-decent team they played this year and have used up all their returning champs mojo. They haven’t played like the best team in the country this year, so there’s no reason they should be up there.

I have to admit I didn’t get to watch too many games on Saturday since I was at the Texas-OU game. I did catch a little of the Tech-Nebraska game and UCLA vs. Cal (both games were on TBS, who does a much better job than ABC) between Texas’ big victory and partying like it’s 1999. (1999, get it? The last year we beat OU, I crack myself up.) Tech is definitely worrying me. I’m not worried they’ll beat Texas, I’m worried they’re not very good and might blow it against a very average Kansas State team and not come into Austin on the 22nd ranked in the top 10.

Matt –This was one of the greatest weekends of football that I have been apart of in a long time. I was at the Texas/OU game, and man did it feel good to put a whoopin’ on ole Stoops and the Sooners. The only real down note was the fact that Ohio State lost, which could definitely hurt Texas in the long run. We really need Ohio State to run the table now.

Surprisingly, USC again looked almost ordinary, which is why I am leaving them in the 4th spot. Penn State may be the real deal, so I am moving them up a bit, and did you see that section of all white at Happy Valley? Craziness. UCLA was also pretty impressive and I think deserves the Top 10 ranking I have given them. These next few weekends will be big as usual, and I really hope that Va. Tech and Florida St. each figure out a way to lose. I am going with the scenario that Miami will beat Va. Tech and then FSU will beat Va. Tech in the ACC Championship. Hook ’em.

    LOVE the Baylor pick at #25. They’ve actually played really well this year and would be undefeated if they hadn’t nutted up everytime they got in the red zone versus TAMU.

    Man, and I thought I had Texas Tech high. It just sounds funny to say that Texas Tech is a Top 10 team.
