Well we are just over 2/3rds of the College football season and Cam Newton is still the biggest story out there. I will not be touching on that but I will talk about my South Florida Bulls who basically control their own destiny with a couple Big East Conference home games against Pittsburgh and Connecticut with a trip to Miami squeezed between. Pitt has 4 losses coming into the tilt and a well balanced offense with an aggressive defensive front. They were throttled by Miami 31-3 earlier in the season. Last week the huskies ran for almost 300 yards on the Pitt defense so I see opportunity there. I feel like USF wins this one at home by 2 somehow. Then will get smashed by Miami next week and UCONN beats us by running the ball to set up play action passes taking advantage of Washington in the secondary. We're still going bowling! Gametime 12:00pm on ESPN2 and ESPN3.com
Bucs have a surprising 6-3 headed to San Francisco this weekend. Jeff Faine is questionable at center but it appears he lost his job when he comes back. Kinda like the car business when you go on a 3 day vacation and your office is packed into a shoe box sitting outside your old office. Jereme Zuttah replaces him. Just a couple more wins and we're looking at playoffs! Solid QB play and Rookie WR Michael Williams have given us fans something to look forward to even if all our home games are blacked out this year! Will they Blackout playoff games?
Rays are liquidating their team faster than the Marlins did(after they won it all)and are banking on an 8th grader to lock down the bullpen. Just kidding, but they are not actively buying in Free Agency. ACL or not, I may have a shot at first base! That's all I will say about the Rays. It's not even close to baseball season!
My Wolverines have a big tilt on Saturday as it's the Battle of the Rhodents. Wolverines vs. Badgers! Wisconsin's only loss was to Michigan State. They are 12th in the nation rushing at 228 yards a game and should have a field day against Michigan's sad defense. Give them credit, the Wolverine's D played well against Purdue but they are not Wisconsin. I think Denard Robinson is the wild card here. If the Badgers make him beat them in the air, we will see Forcier in the 2nd half. 38-23 Wisconsin. I hope I'm wrong.
