What I Saw In College Football II

This past week in college football exposed some teams and revealed some other things.

Texas was and is fraudulent. I thought that either Texas, Oklahoma, or Florida would get popped by some team lesser than them. Texas was throttled by a so-so UCLA team at home 34-12. Florida had a convincing win over Kentucky going into their showdown with Alabama. Maybe Texas and Oklahoma were looking ahead to the Red River Shootout because the Sooners escaped Cincinnati with a 31-29 win. The way Oklahoma is playing they'll be lucky to escape the season without a loss. USC also is on this list, but i see them getting whipped by Stanford or Oregon and not one of the dregs of the Pac-10. Michigan is also under consideration. If they can't beat down Indiana they aren't bonafide Big Ten contenders. Also receiving votes:Pittsburgh, Texas A&M, Georgia.

Mark Ingram is back in the Heisman hunt. After missing the first two games Alabama's Mark Ingram has made quite an impression with the Heisman voters. Even though one of the games was against Duke, he showed up big time against Arkansas. Its going to be difficult to keep him away from New York.
Arkansas will be a force, it just won't be this year. Even though the Hogs suffered a tough loss to Alabama, Arkansas will be a force to reckon with. They still won't beat the Alabama's and Florida's, at least not right now, once Bobby Petrino gets this train rolling you don't want to be on the tracks. Remember how he made Louisville into a darkhorse national contender.
Miami won't win the ACC unless Jacory Harris cuts down his interceptions. This is an absolute must. I know Randy Shannon blasted his backs and receivers for poor route running and dropped/tipped passes but that only goes so far. Harris needs to make better decisions because the Canes are superior to any other team in the ACC at this point.
