So if I'm having a tough time still comprehending that Nate Scherholtz, the clown with the beard, Zito, Bum beazy Bumgarnder, Renteria and the rest the motley crew they call the Giants won the World Series in five games, how are Giants fans feeling after waiting over 50 years for their first championship in San Fransisco. ! The paper said they will be making offers to Carl Crawford, the Giants have an opportunity to build a dynasty and win several championships over the next five years. I think I still hear Giant fans screaming from across the bay! Anyways, enough of that individual sport baseball, the ultimate team game is going to have a couple of memorable days as college football inches closer to its conclusion. Big Oklahoma rivalry game when Baylor goes into OK State, great SEC match up Arkansas coming into South Carolina. Top ranked Oregon should roll against Washington at home. Auburn has an equally challenging test in the Southern;'s conference Chattanooga. The Super Bowl of the small schools conference's, TCU heads to the Utah both ranked in the top five. Winner puts themselves in the best position to finish thirds and in the second biggest bowl game, not the National Championship game. A big Pac 10 match up in Stanford and Arizona. Cal is trying to hype a new quarterback and is laying a bunch of points against a struggling Washington team.
Coming off a 20-3 disappointing loss against Pittsburgh, the Cardinals are looking to rebound with a tough road citroy, but probably will loose by a field goal. Top rusher for Louisville, Bilal Powel has several games over two hundred yards, look for him to pound the ball and grind that clock. Syracuse is ranked near the bottom half in rushing yards look for that rank to slide a little bit more.
Michigan is more talented than their speedy quarterback, Robinson. But the fighting Illini, fight back. The rule book always says stay away from road dogs, especially in the college game. I got a hunch, my guy is tingling that Illinois will cover and keep this close, if they do not upset the Wolverines.
Sparta can score, Minnesota has a few play makers on defense. Enough , not to get totally obliterated and make it some kind of game. Without a single win in conference play, and ranked near the bottom in points against and points for, the Golden Golfers have a lot to prove amid there struggling season.
Oregon is great, enough to blow this Washington squad out by 50. Thats the problem expectations are high in Eugene and the place Ducks stadium might receive a few crack from the thundering noise.
Iowa State +17
Big 12, big game. 2 touchdowns and a field goal, three possessions. Can the Corn Husker's over come this spread against a tough Iowa State team, nope, especially on the road.
Big state, big game, little spread. A&M will make this a game, weather they will cover, is still to be decided. Oklahoma is ranked 5th in passing yards but 28th in points against. The Aggies are ranked right behind the Sooner in passing yards at 6th in the nation. The over looks lovely in this game. The spread how ever looks a little muggy. If A&M can play some defense and make some big stops this game will be close until the final seconds. Oklahoma, by a field goal.
