Big Saturday

****Upset Alert****
Bama at Arkansas

Arkansas had a huge let down last week at Georgia. They were dominating the football game and then in the 3rd quarter they completely left the building. This team was thought to have gotten over the hump last year after having a really good season. Their running game has to be exceptional in order for the Razorbacks to have a chance to win.

Right when the whole college football nation was ready to crown Trent Richardson Heisman, Mark Ingram showed us all why he has it already. 9 carries for 151 yards. I don't care if he was playing 3 year old's, he should have at least tripped over a toy or something. Ingram ran wild and will continue has reign of terror against the Razorbacks.The Tide are great in every area on the field except special teams and their secondary. If Mallet is the QB I think he is, this is a game the Razorbacks can win. The big ability of Julio Jones hasn't been realized. He is the x factor. If he can play well, Arkansas doesn't have a chance. This will be an instant classic. 42-38 Arkansas Pig Souey!!!!!!

Stanford @ Notre Dame

Jim Harbaugh Has done a remarkable job at Stanford. With the academic demands placed on these true student athlete's, this is short of amazing. Harbaugh should be sought after by huge college football programs and even the professional ranks. Stanford plays the game the way it should be. They are very disciplined and don't beat themselves. Having Andrew Luck as your QB doesn't hurt them either.

Notre Dame has a productive offense behind Crist and Allen. Defensively, they give up plenty of points and this will be their demise. Stanford will end this one early...45-20 Stanford

South Carolina @ Auburn

Auburn got off to a miserable start last week against Clemson. Clemson controlled the ball game until the 3rd quater. The Tigers cannot afford a start like this against one of the best teams in the SEC conference. Auburn will need much better play on offense earlier in the game. They also need to use their 12th ranked rushing attack to control the game.

The Gamecocks will be ready to enter Auburn with plenty of confidence. The secondary of the Gamecocks is more than capable of making plays well against the Tigers passing attack. Spurrier has had great play calling selection all year. He has rellied heavely on a Marcus Lattimore driven running game. Garcia has managed ball games well and as long as he continues this, South Carolina should defeat the Tigers convincingly. They will win this game for Kenny Mckinnley (Denver Broncos reciever who comitted suicide earlier this week). 27-17 SC

Oregon St @ Boise St

Oregon St painted its practice field blue. Whe has the color of the foeld or anything else trivial won or lost a ball game. This is crazy and Oregon will lose because of this...Just kidding, Boise St is just much better than the Beavers. 42-13 Boise St

Giant Turmoil 4 Big Blue!!!

After an embarrassing performance against the Colts, the chinks in the Giants armor are beginning to rip fast. Brandon Jacobs has began to stress his grievances in the media. He doesn't feel like he's being used effectively. Brandon should be one of the leaders on this club and should know better than to express himself in this manner. Let's look at who the leaders of this ball club are....Why? Because Antrelle Role told us to. Eli Manning offensive captain; A very steady influence and never to high or to low. Justin Tuck defensive captain; A very confident guy who exudes power and skill in his conversation and play. Chase Blackburn speacial teams captain; a tough guy who will put his body on the line to make a play. Tom Coughlin head coach; we all know about this guy. He will beat the same nail into an iron wall until it goes end. When you put these 4 guys together you end up with a unemotional team who will consistently play hard.
Role is concerned as well he should be. This is an organization that has always been lead by very strong defensive personalities. Lawrence Taylor,Harry Carson, Pepper Johnson, Jesse Armstead, Michael Barrow, Keith Hamilton, and Michael Strahan. These guys sweated determination, fight, want to, confidence, fiery emotion and yes arrogance. Because to be special you had to have this. Look at any Superbowl team and tell me they didn't display these characteristics week in and week out.
So Antrelle, if you want to see things get better in the locker room and on the field....You do it!!!You take on the leadership role!!! A captain is just a title and sometimes just a popularity contest. True leadership is proven with your daily walk, with or without a vote.

p.s. your 1-1...the sky isn't falling.

More College Football Preseason in week 3

Alabama at Duke

Ingram's back but Bama won't need him against the Blue Devils. Duke's D is terrible right now. They gave up 54 points against a suspect and young Wake Forest offense. Bama will roll. 48-24 Bama

Arkansas at Georgia

Mark Reicht won't beat Florida again this year. His job is on the line, not because of that but because the lower of the SEC has began to catch up with them. The Bulldogs lost to South Carolina last week and will struggle against a better Arkansas. This won't bode well for the Bulldog faithful.

Arkansas has the best QB in college football, Ryan Mallet. He reminds me of a bigger Tom Brady with a stronger arm. He's not on anyone picks of best QB's but he will after he throws for over 350 yds against the Bulldogs. After this week everyone will know the Razorbacks are for real. 45-17 Ark

GaTech at UNC

2 ranked teams coming into this year have been quickly dropped. UNC has fought threw a pending NCAA while playing shorthanded. Had it not been for a sloppy start to a game against LSU, they may have won. Yates still remains the key to UNC's success. If he plays well, they can beat almost anyone in the country.

I told you...I told you....Paul Johnson has been exposed. It's not his brilliant offense. It's still about the players. He was only able to win with superior offensive talent. Talent that he didn't and won't be able to recruit. GaTech can't throw and won't throw. Their defense is still very suspect. Yes they'll be able to run the ball, but it won't matter. 24-10 UNC

Nebraka at Washington

Locker will have big yardage but the Cornhusker rushing attack will be too much. 38-31 Neb

Clemson at Auburn

Clemson's finally out of their preseason schedule and I think it will hurt them. Auburn fought off a tough minded Bulldog team last week. This will be the reason they will outlast Clemson. 23-15 Auburn

Reggie Bush, U gave back WHAT!!!!!

And so the saga continues.... Athlete punished;School punished;Agent gets away free, AND SUES!!!!Aren't we all tired of painting athletes that get into to trouble for excepting agent benefits as bad guys. Aren't we all tired of this huge money making machine that we all call college football getting revenge against the wrong people.
Reggie Bush was a high-powered USC football player who accepted money or benefits of some kind prior to leaving USC. Should he get into trouble for that? Is it the schools fault? Why do is we spend the time ridiculing and berating the athlete and the school. Okay... maybe the school should be held somewhat responsible, but at what cost. USC is suffering scholarship losses and the inability to play for a BCS championship. Does this hurt the school? Sure for the short term, but it really affects the student athlete that would have received those scholarships. This also doesn't hurt Reggie Bush. He turned in the Heisman of his own free will. The next time he's questioned about it, he'll say, what's done is done...let's talk about the Packers(or whoever else he's playing).
We all know who it didn't hurt.... The agent , who none of us even bother to care who he is or even his name.. But, this is the guy who started the ball to rolling. This is the guy who sent runners on campus to befriend Bush and to set up the improper benefits. The guy that conspired, the guy who paid the cash, the guy who will continue this behavior....Mr. Super Agent!!
Since the NCAA won't ban the bad agents. The NFL needs to step up and set severe penalties against dream crushers like this.

NCAAFB Preseason is over. Let's Play some Ball!!!

Miami vs The Ohio State University

Terell Pryor will be the focal point of Miami's defense and every other defense on OState's schedule. The running game of OState will be the key to this game. If they can win the ground game they will win. Pryor is included in this ground attack because he is a nightmare win he gets out of the pocket.

A thicker built Jacory Hariss will be more than ready to take on this challenge. This game will tell the rest of the country if the U is truly back or not. Miami will win this game because of the maturity and health of a now older team. Randy Shannon's 2009 schedule will be the reason why the U dominates this 2010 college football season. 27-16 Miami

Penn State vs Bama

The Big-10 has long felt like the little brother of SEC. Pen St has the opportunity to change this way of thinking by beating Bama in Tuscaloosa. Bolden fared well in his first start as a freshman. He will need major help from Brackett and Moye in the passing game. Penn St doesn't have the dominant o-line that they normally have and this will hurt them in the running game against Bama.

The Crimson Tide limps in after the knee scope of their Heisman Mark Ingram. Yeah Right!!!! Richardson may be better than Mark Ingram and the longer Ingram is out the more the rest of the country will see it. Upchurch, the 3rd string tailback for Bama will be a starter almost anywhere else in the country. In the passing game Julio Jones is simply the best receiver in the country. Bama is toooo strong on offense and to solid on D to lose this game. 38-17 BAMA

FSU vs Oklahoma

The game names peeks everyone's interest but these are not the Seminoles or Sooner's of old. Oklahoma luckily got out of a scare last week to Utah St. The Sooner's pass defense was atrocious, giving up 341 yards in the air. They'll really have to ride the back of Heisman hopeful Demarco Murray to even have a chance this year.

Christian Ponder has picked up where he left off last year throwing 4 touchdowns in his first game back since his injury.Defensively , FSU still looks undisciplined and out of position. They gave up 300 yards of total offense to Samford. This will not be enough to have a comeback year but it will beat the Sooner's. 48-23 FSU

USF @ Florida

******Upset Alert******

It's funny how teams without a strong seem to minimize the importance of that position. Well Gators, the Tebow era has officially ended. The offense is sputtering and the lack of a true RB will continue to expose their offensive deficiencies in the passing game.

USF has a gritty new coach who knows how to win. Skip Holtz has built his offense around the highly talented BJ Daniels. After this game, BJ will have the Gator fans wishing they had offered this florida bred young men. BJ Daniels is the QB that, as a true freshman, went into Doak Walker Stadium and beat FSU decisively. 17-10 USF

Michigan @ Notre Dame

Rich Rod and the wolverines are back. Led this year by Denard Robinson who almost had 200 yards in the air and on the ground. This truly makes him a true duel threat. Rich Rod has also implemented the 3-3-5 defense from his West Virginia days. This will be the reasoon that every Michigan opponent will have a chance to beat them. Let's remember under Rich Rod, WVU was potent on offense and purely stunk on D.

Notre Dame and Brian Kelly have gotten off to a good start. Armando Allen has stepped up as the go to guy on offense and the defense was solid. The true test will come from a Wolverine team that features a QB that can rush for over 200 yards. The Irish defense will struggle against
Robinson. But their offense should kill the 3-3-5. The Irish will lose in a close game. 36-31 Michigan

2010 NFL Preview


PLEASE FLACCO, DON'T MESS IT UP!!!For the first time ever, the Ravens won't be lead by RAYRAY and them. The acquisition of Anquan Boldin has inspired the very productive veteran Derrick Mason to ditch retirement. Now that TJ Houshmandzadeh was just picked up in a steal, they have just moved into 1st place with the best wide reciever group in the NFL. PLEASE FLACCO, DON'T MESS IT UP!!! The 4th wideout spot now belongs to a #1 caliber receiver Donte Stallworth. Saying all this, this team will still be lead be a very strong running game with Ray Rice / McGahee/MClain carrying the load. The only concern for the offense is making sure 3rd year QB Joe Flacco plays better than he did last year. Another Raven Superbowl run depends on Joe Flacco NOT MESSING IT UP!!! 12-4 Superbowl contender


This sure aint your daddy BUNGLES!!! This team is balanced offensive and defensively. This is the most talented group in the division. Defensively look for Roy Williams and the linebacker corp to create turnovers and deliver lots of punishment. Carson Palmer will lead a group of reality show wideouts that will have their share of meltdowns. TO and Ochocinco will give this division more than it can chew. If you think they're washed up and to old..Think back to the Raiders and their superbowl run with Jerry Rice and Tim Brown... Marvin Lewis is under the gun again so he's banking on a superbowl run to save the day. They'll at least win the division. 11-5


Defensively, we will still get a nasty dose of 3-4 zone blitzing schemes that will knock your head off. But offensively, they've struggled to find an identity. Are they gunslingers or rockem-sockem ground attackers? With big Ben missing the first 6 games, this puts the offense in more trouble. Look for a year of struggling and a 1st round pick used on a QB in the next draft. 9-7


When Jake Delhomme is your QB, you have to be concerned. RB Jerome Harrison and multifaceted Josh Cribs are the brightest spots on this team. Good Luck Dog Pound..... 4-12


Until anyone else can come close to beating them, the new name for this division should be called Indy-South...None of us know how they do it other than having Mr. MVP Peyton Manning. As long as he stays healthy they'll win at least 13 games... 14-2


Were all starting to feel sorry for the best wide out in football, Andre Johnson....Really, you don't agree...Check the numbers, this guys a HOF wide-out. He punishes teams every week with no help. Start up a campaign to please trade Johnson so that he can win... No playoffs again this year. 8-8


This team will probably lead the NFL in rushing because of a dynamic duo in Vince Young and Grilled up Chris Johnson. Besides that, there's not much else to them. They'll be decent but they really need big plays on D to make a run for the playoff's. 7-9


Tickets 4 for 1 anyone. The Jaguars will struggle again to sell tickets. MJD is the only player I would go to the game to watch. Their team reflects their QB...BOOOOORRRRIIIINNNGGGG!!! This is exactly opposite of what a struggling franchise needs to get fans in the stands. Jack Delrio is officially in the hot seat. 7-9



Ahhhh you know the rest. I don't believe, I'm sorry.I know this was a team one game away from the Superbowl, but they went 9-7 and got into the playoffs with a prayer. Their tough hard nosed coach conceded they wouldn't make the playoffs. They have the same team ... A team that loss to the Bills last year...LT's a backup and Cromartie was a cast off. Mark Sanchez.....Matt Leinhart, you tell me the difference. 10-6 Superbowl or Bust......BUST!!!!!!

New England

Patriots have their nucleus on offense, but that's not their problem. The Patriots have been abysmal on D for a Belichick coached squad. He's transformed his group from a stingy D, to a push over. Offensively, getting Welker back will clean it up for a motivated Randy Moss. But it won't be enough. 10-6


Miami is in a good position right now. The Dolphins will play the spoiler role this year. They'll beat teams they shouldn't and lose to teams they shouldn't. They are missing a clear cut leader, but they do have a ton of guys that play with a chip on their shoulder, including the 2nd best receiver in the NFL Brandon Marshall. 8-8


The Bills just named another 1st round pick the starter....CJ Spiller...Lightning will strike in Buffalo, I just don't know for how long. Spiller is a very crafty runner with home run capabilities any time he touches the ball. His only problem is he always banged up. In college he nver went 3 weeks without having an issue. By the way, who plays QB for the Bills any way??? that's right Trent Edwards 2-14



The Chargers are going through a change in personnel with the departing of LT. This won't deter Rivers and Gates from continuing their dominance in the weakest division in football. They'll be playoff bound because of this and a continued improving defense. 11-5


Josh Daniels gets another crack at this NFL coaching thing. All he's done in less than a year is get rid of the two best players on the team and not signed his best defensive player to a long term deal. He got lucky last year in the beginning of the season. That won't happen this year. Daniels hasn't realized that players win games. 6-11


At some point they have to get better. They won't. 3-13


The word is, Cassell still doesn't have enough weapons around him. Who said he's a weapon..... 2-14



Farve is back.... Is this the year for the Superbowl. Is Bret Farve the answer. His coming back brought up more questions than answers. Can he still take a hit at fifty something...Is his ankle better...What's his motivation....How many games can he play???? Defensively they'll still be stingy but with the loss of Sidney Rice and headache ridden Percy Harvin, they'll need to get better in the passing game quickly. Sorry Vikes, no Superbowl. 13-3


Rodgers has quickly thrown himself into being one of the best QB's in the NFL. His upside is limitless and there's not a play on the field that's beyond him. He has a very good group of recievers that lay it all on the lin. His offensive line though, needs major improvement from last year. Defensively, they get the heart and soul back in LB Nick Barnett. He rejoins the fold with the best secondary in football. Collins and reigning defensive MVP Woodson are back with an attitude. 11-5


Wow...They finally get the answer they were looking for at the QB position. But, somehow Lovie Smith and the Bears turned a promising Jay Cutler into one of the worst QB's in the league. He either made bad throws or threw it to the other team most of the time. I don't know how the defense went into the ball game believing they could win , while knowing they would be on the field all game. The running gameidn't help at all. And why wasn't the Bears involved in any of the wide reciver sweepstakes.....Mike Martz is here now but who's Jay going to throw to. This will probably be the end of the Lovie Smith reign. 7-9


Ndamukong Suh, Calvin Johnson, would be beasts on anyone's squad. But, this is where it ends in Detroit. Staffords not the answer. If they couldn't block for a very physical Kevin Smith, what makes you think they can block for a very finesse Pac-10 runner, Jhavid Best. 3-13



Who Dat nation is ready to roll. They have everyone coming back. The have the most dominate offense in football. Reggie Bush makes there special teams one of the most dangerous in football. Their defense makes more plays than any other D in football. They have everything it takes to repeat as Superbowl Champs.....But will they? 12-4


The Panthers have the best 1-2 RB punch in football. Stewart and Williams will have to carry the entire offense with unproven Matt Moore at QB. Fox has kept Carolina with a good defense during his tenure. This year won't be the same. They'll struggle on D and will not be able to do anything in the passing game. 9-7


Matt Ryan and the Falcons have a long year awaiting. Ryan didn't improve last year. This including a under performing Michael Turner spelled disaster for Atlanta. Don't think they'll make much noise at all this year. 6-10


Good Luck on the season Josh's going to be a long one. 1980's Buccaneers, here they come.. 2-14



The DC area has a lot to be excited about. #5 has made it to the Nations Capital. McNabb instantly catapults a playoff team under new head coach Mike Shanahan into an instant Superbowl contender. The running game is lead by 2 perennial pro bowlers Portis and Johnson. Defensively they are a solid bunch with or without the services of Albert Haynesworth. Philly how crazy can you be. Losing McNabb is one thing but to lose him in your division is pure foolishness. 12-4


Dallas considers its trio of RB's as the most dangerous in the league...What does this say about your QB and receivers....Not much!!! Romo needs to make plays in order for Dallas to make a Superbowl run. I think they have a defense that can get it done but they still lack a true leader on offense. 10-6


Ely has been very reliable throughout his Giants career. He will continue this with the nice young group of wideouts he has. The Giants won't be great, but the will be a tough team every Sunday.


Deshawn Jackson has said that the Eagles are better without McNabb. We will see about that. Philly is bad on D and are missing Westbrook and #5 now. I don't think life without those two guys will be that great for the Eagles.. Kolb get used to hearing this chant.....We Want Vick!!!! 5-11


The 49er's are back to being the Kings of the NFC West. The loss of Kurt Warner has shifted the power structure of this division. Singletary's formula is working perfectly as San Fransicos will be playoff bound this season.Divsion champs 12-4

Right when Ken Wisenhunt felt like he was building something, the bottom fall out. Warners gone, Linehart's cut, and in comes Derek Anderson. With the lack of a running game and the amazing improvement of the 49er's. The Cardinals are in big trouble. 8-8

Pete Caroll must think he's at USC letting go of Pro Bowl players like Housmanzadah.. Pete you don't have a lot of talent on your roster. He'll wake up quickly after this season. 3-13

I'm starting to feel sorry for Stephen Jackson like we all did for Corey Dillon when he was in Cincinnati. 2-14
