    Last year Oklahoma played bowling green, houston, and oregon ALL at home. Auburn played Louisiana Monroe, citadel (WTF!), and louisiana tech ALL at home. No freaking way can you say that SC plays a weak OOC, compared to the other BCS teams.

    All conferences go through up and down years. Last year the Pac 10 was down. It will improve: new coaches all over the place.

    And dont give that crap about "if SC played in this conference or that conference" , Oklahoma, Iowa, and Michigan all had plenty of time to rest before getting their asses stomped.
    Not saying that OU and Michigan would have beaten USC, especially since OU seemed really weak in normal games that werent big in their books. But if USC was in a conference with better competition, to where its a dogfight every game to get a winner, then things might be different at the end of the season.

    California has great talent, and as long as USC gets those players then they will dominate. I do believe though that Texas, and Florida are more "fertile" when it comes to talent. All of the Florida teams demonstrate this, and every team in the big 12 has mainly Texas athletes on their rosters.

    The pac-10 has been weak, but it is one of the dominate conferences, just look at their past. Although I don't agree with the lack of a conference championship game, which would have been nice if Cal played USC again. Things may have been different.

    BTW, look for the PAC-10 to remain weak besides Cal and USC because they aren't gonna let the California kids go to Oregon, Washington, Washington St, Arizona St, or Oregon St anymore.

    this probably should be in a different thread, but I for one would rather have a playoff system like DI-AA and others have rather than the bowl game championship crap.

    Everyone would agree with you except the fat cats that run the NCAA. I'd say the top 8 teams play in a playoff, the next controversy would be how do we decide who advances to the play-offs

    Every conference plays a championship game, then take those winners, and a couple at-large.

    Yeah that's not bad because if you get conference champions than the whole rankings BS is not a factor. The NCAA's response to that would be "That tournament takes too long and the kids would miss too many classes"

    Also, they need to toss out preseason rankings, or at least not have them count for anything. They shouldnt implement rankings until say half way through conference play. Then teams who end up with 4 losses and still end up ranked 15th or under because they started out ranked really high wont get that. Helps rank everyteam by their current season, and not previous.

    They very well may do that the way they're recruiting, but we still have to see how losing Norm Chow is gonna affect them.

    Ain't gonna hurt a bit.

    If anything Sark/Kiffin will be a bit more aggressive.

    Strawberry Canyon will be a warzone on 11/12/05, no question. I'd love to be there.

    I'm a true Michigan fan. I grew up there & left when I joined the Marines. Although, now that I live about 10 min. drive from LSU, I root for the Tigers too, but my blood is maize & blue!!! I know MI has some great talent returning along w/ a freshman running back that verbally committed to MI when he was a sophomore in HS!! This guy is a stud! Should be an interesting year. We should win the Big 10 & make a run at the title this year IMO...


    Can't wait!!!!

    Texas plays Ohio State in the second game of the season. Should be a good sign of things to come for both teams later in the year.

    Sept. 3, 2005 is a very interesting game.

    Can you guess what game it is?


    Boise St. visits Georgia in Athens. Boise is returning a good team and could really make a mark if they get a victory at Athens. Georgia will be interesting to see how they operate with Greene and Pollack gone. I am excited about this game and intrigued by the matchups.

    I see Georgia going down in that game. They won't be the powerhouse in the SEC that they were last year.

    No mention of The U till Brock shows up. I guess we'll just sneak around pre-season #10 or so.



    Brock - the thought of Willie in the middle of our D gives me freaking goosebumps. Da Predator could be the best MLB at The U EVER! Now, that is saying something!



    What is your over/under on points on Labor Day? I'm saying 18-20. New QB's for both teams, and weak OL's = should be one helluva D/special teams duel.

    This kid has some tough competition for best U backer. I'd say Ray Lewis and Dan Morgan are better for now until I see him play, just hope he doesn't kill anyone

    Some folks close to the program are saying better than Ray Ray. I'm w/ you, I'll believe it when I see it, but I'm really, really hopeful.

    Yeah, and hope he doesn't kill Wyatt Sexton or Antone Smith (don't think these kids at The U don't want to send this kid a message) on Labor Day.

    you know what they say at the U......."Big time player make big time plays"

    Cant wait for labor day.......Bring on the 'Noles!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Were you at the Spring Game?
    I was getting updates on my Canes forum. I was very, very nervous in the 1stQ as Kirby outplayed Kyle, but I gotta give Wright credit, he came back in the 2nd half and played well. Sounds like he locked up the job.

    I heard some great praise for Willie and Devin on D. Also James Bryant at FB. But, nothing good about the OL.

    IMO, with a new QB, the OL is THE most important unit this season for us. I can only hope that Winston comes back better than before, otherwise we may be in trouble w/ Wright running for his life.

    Are they using the shotgun to counter any possible cluster****s with their OL ?

    I have faith in Kehoe.....he lives and dies with the OL...From what I hear Winston is alot further along in his recovery and they arent worried much....we'll see

    As far as the shotgun.......Wright or Freeman have a good amount of scrambling ability...alot better then berlin or dorsey...so who knows? It could be asset if they do have to move around

    Brock - are you sure about Wright having scrambling ability?

    I know Freeman does, he played in an option O in hs. But, Kyle didn't look so mobile up-close when I saw him at GTech last year.

    Can you get me a ticket to the FSU game?
