One of the most interesting match-ups for Saturday appears to be California and Arizona State. Both ranked but both have questions, and neither has posted impressive wins yet (unless you count California win over Portland State  cheerful  Wink.

It's ok, we all get carried away sometimes. It's cool that you're at least able to admit when you crossed that line of fiery discussions into name calling, a mistake I have also been guilty of. Calling you someone's butt-buddy probably wasn't wise, and for that, I'm sorry.

Florida as a 23.5 point favorite over Kentucky at home....hmm, I'll have to think about that one. Gone are the days of us throwing 70+ points on the board against these yahoos every year.

We'll win given it is a night game at The Swamp and the place will be rocking. I just hope we don't let the Tennessee win go to our head and start looking forward to Alabama the following week.

Can Brady Quinn recover? Can the ND defense stop anyone? I'm just not sure. MSU's coach is on the hot seat. A win might help cool him off for another week.

OSU does look pretty damn good and I hate to admit that. PSU will limp away from the Horseshoe after this one with merely a cat's whimper.

Unlikely, Crosby will bail us out and drill a long FG and we'll get at least 3 to extend our games in which we've scored streak to 214 games, which is one of the longest current streaks in I-A...and yes, thats all the optimism I have for this week lol

It sounds like the only game you have seen Cal play this year was against Tennessee. In week two, Longshore threw for 300 yards with 4 TD's and NO INTs, Desean Jackson, Cal's Sophomore wide receiver has 5 TD's, tied for second in the nation. Last week against 1-AA Portland State, Marshawn Lynch rushed for 112 yards and a touchdown on just six carries and the offense put up 42 points in the first half. Both of Cal's most recent games have been solid performances, so this game against Arizona State should be a close one.

Just a tip. When you are arguing how good your team is don't use stats from a game against a 1-AA team to try and prove it. You pay for those teams to visit you so you can beat them. Stats from those games are suspect in my mind.

As for my original observations I still stand by them. Minnesota is not a great team and while you did good against them I would suspect as much and we've already covered the Portland State game. I just don't think Cal is a very good team this year and I suspect they will prove it on Saturday. If they win then I suppose I might be wrong but we'll just let it play out on the field.

The fact that Mario Manningham and Mike Hart are sophomore and junior, respectively, is scary. After looking at both team's depth charts for this week and some stats, I have to admit that as much as I've always had a soft spot for Bucky, I don't see this game being close in any way, shape or form. Line up a vet in Ann Arbor because Bucky is probably getting mangled by a wolverine on Saturday.

Obviously...that's why I said right out in front that they were 1-AA. Stats against them need to be taken with a grain of salt.

If Minnesota is not a good team, then what is Colorado? They lost to 1-AA Montana State at home, and ASU bumbled past them. Their QB went 21/37 against them with 2 INT's. As he said,"the offense played terrible."

I think this game will be a good one.

Florida better work out any kinks left against UK and get ready for the hardest 4 weeks in college football ahead of them: Alabama, LSU, Auburn and Georgia. If they post 4 wins after that, I see no reason why they cant be legitimate contenders for a National Championship.

Hell yeah! I've been pleasantly surprised by the play of the ffensive line that is so young. Tennessee was tough but if we get past that Murderer's Row in 4 consecutive games (Of course UGA fans will bitch that we get the week off before playing them as usual) then I don't see how we couldn't be title contenders at that point as well. And we would still have South Carolina and HalfAssU to play to solidify that fact.

Don't be so sure. I've seen a very full house for Carlin in Auburn and it takes thousands for that; a Valby show is, hmmmm, more intimate. A few hundred will do. Of course, once some of the locals figured out what was going on he'd certainly attract some protesters the next time out.

LSU is Homecoming this year and not on the road. Still the toughest schedule in the country this year despite that.

Well folks, how did your teams fare?

Florida won which is good though we struggled a fair bit at the beginning. Notre Dame either made a great comeback or MSU just fell flat on their faces. I'm still up in the air on the ND defense as it didn't look incredibly good.

I stand somewhat corrected on California as I expected them to look like a bunch of buffoons and they kicked ASU's butt.

He didn't do that; he came back down to Atlanta and joined me at the Thrashers game last night. He made sure to ditch his Colorado gear before going to the game. He told me that he didn't get any grief at all from the Bulldog fans, and was impressed with the tailgating scene and with the hedges.

It was unfortunate for John L. and Co that they lost to Notre Dame, but MSU always finds a way to give games away.

It was also unfortunate that Michigan gave up 3 times as many rushing yards to Wisconsin as they did to Notre Dame. Bucky managed a cool 12, while the Golden Domers ground out 4 a week ago. Michigan heads over to Minneapolis to take on Goldy this Saturday.

My beloved D-II Grand Valley State Lakers defeated Michigan Tech to extend their NCAA leading win streak to 17. GVSU is 74-5 in their last 79 games.
