This every Saturday after the Saturday Lecture open NCAA thread for those of us watching football and not wanting to soil the respectable threads with cries of ‘Hook ‘em Horns’ or ‘Soooeeeee Piggie!’ and we sure don’t want to run Ralphie through a serious thread! Some of our writers would get really mad. This will be a stickie at the top of the page, its football and open, please see the ‘normal’ yet excellent threads below; get crazy and open two tabs!
The rankings have barely changed because everyone above the #17 rank is 3-0. I don’t see any shake-up happening this week except…(1) Alabama could lose at (10)Arkansas if the stars are in perfect alignment.
Its week 4 already and my beloved Pitt Panthers were embarrassed at home Thursday night by the hated Miami Felons, errrr, Hurricanes. And as I write this, the Friday night game has (4) TCU at SMU and its tied at 7! I don’t expect an upset here.
The noon slot doesn’t look too interesting. The ESPN crew is at Boise State home of the (3) Broncos and the blue Smurf Turf, if you have never seen the turf, tune into ESPN or check the game at 2000 eastern.
The 1530 eastern slot features an SEC clash: (1) Alabama at (10) Arkansas, the money is giving Arkansas 7 at home. This game has the potential to be much closer than that. Arkansas CAN win against Alabama, this is the first real test for the Tide this year. Ryan Mallett, the QB for Arkansas would love some payback after the stomping he took at ‘Bama last year.
The 1900 eastern slot has unranked Georgia at Mississippi State, this game is a pick ‘em and a good SEC match up.At 1945 (12) South Carolina Gamecocks are at (17) Auburn this look to a another close SEC street fight.
Then we get to the over-hyped game of the week at 2000, (24) Oregon State is going to (3) Boise State. This game should not even be close. Vegas is giving the (see post 154, i made a HUGE mistake) Beavers 18! I will be looking at this game because i love the Smurf Turf on HD and the Boise State fans are MANIACS!
*oooh! lok, ribs!
and Puti sez hi!
