What I Saw In College Football

Many are spelling doom for Boise State since they are ranked number three in the first BCS poll, behind Oklahoma and Oregon. There's still a lot of football to be played and I'm still not sold on Oklahoma, although it looks like they may be hitting their stride. This is the second game where they put it all together. They still have Missouri and a dangerous Oklahoma State team on the horizon.

Cam Newton and Auburn- The Tigers put on a show last Saturday against Arkansas. In a game that virtually featured no defense, Cam Newton cemented himself as the Heisman frontrunner. At least in my eyes he is.
The Tigers have another big one against Les Miles and LSU. If Aubie pulls this one out they look to have a clear, undefeated path to the Alabama game.

The Alabama Hangover-After knocking off previous number 1 ranked Alabama, South Carolina fell to Kentucky. That was a dangerous game for the Gamecocks. It was on the road, Kentucky really isn't that bad, and they also possess one of the most versatile weapons in college football in Randall Cobb. That was a trap game if I ever saw one. If the Wildcats could ever put together two halves they might be undefeated. It seems they only show up for the second half of games.    

Jeff Tedford might need to start worrying about his job security. The number of decisive, blowout losses has to start getting to you at some point.

Turner Gill might be wondering what he's gotten himself into at Kansas. It seems the Jayhawks are being humiliated every time I see their score on the ticker. Save for the win over Georgia Tech, not much has went right for the Jayhawks.

Georgia seems to have hit its stride since getting A.J. Green back. It also helps to have two SEC softies to get back on track. Meanwhile Florida has had offensive struggles all year. It really hit the fan in a 10-7 loss to Mississippi State. When was the last time you heard of a Florida offense cranking out a robust seven points? 

Whoa Now!- Before we hand Nebraska the Big 12 title (I was guilty too), Texas might've laid out the blueprint to knockout the Huskers. This is a game tape that Missouri and perhaps Oklahoma might want to study.    

Down Goes The Buckeyes- Ohio State took a hard fall Saturday night against Wisconsin. Jim Tressel might want to take a cue from Gene Chizik and turn Terrelle loose. Cam Newton is everything Terrelle Pryor should be.

Eric LeGrand- The Rutgers defensive tackle was paralyzed making a tackle on a kickoff return. Let's hope for the best for this young man. You are in many prayers and in the hearts and minds of your teammates. Don't let this keep you down.
