Football Friday Thoughts…

(Source:fsunews.com)

THOUGHTS FROM LAST WEEK, AND UPCOMING GAMES THIS WEEK:

–So, the game of the weekend will belong to Florida St. and Clemson. The winner with an  inside track toward an ACC Championship game berth and possibly much more. As explosive as Clemson is on offense, The Noles D will come to play. I think FSU’s D has the chance to be as good as Alabama and LSU’s.

–Speaking of LSU, they travel to Auburn for a night game at Jordan-Hare Stadium. The Bayou Bengals will win, but I’m VERY interested in seeing QB Zach Mettenberger play his first road League game as a starter. Idaho, Washington, etc are great to throw against at Tiger Stadium, It’s also another in your first hostile environment.

–With all that said, RB Kenny Hillard is a MAN. He was the back I liked the most last season and this year he has established himself as the guy or someone that will get a ton of minutes. And don’t forget about Spencer Ware,  and freshman Jeremy Hill, Alfred Blue, the list goes on and on.

–What happens in Fayetteville if the Arkansas loses Saturday to 3-0 Rutgers? If it isn’t already a mess, the ol’ head coach of the Hogs had the college football world buzzing for…all the wrong reasons.. Still some funny stuff… Remember.. SMILE!!!!

–I know that Arizona and Rich Rodriguez have had some early season success (wins over Okla state included), but things change this week. Oregon is for real folks. Two words: WARP SPEED. They may score 65. And I’m not joking.

–Yes, I have to show some love for my Alma Mater. Western Kentucky University got a nice win over Kentucky on the road in Overtime. Kinda surreal, with running back Antonio Andrews throwing the throw back pass to QB Kewaun Jakes for the go ahead two point conversion… I actually covered Antonio Andrews in High school during my first job out of college. He was named Mr Football in the state, and was electric. But because of his size, many larger schools were turned off… the rest is history, he will be a great player at WKU.

–Now. To UK. Wow. Joker Philips could be gone by the end of October. If I’m AD Mitch Barnhardt, I’m making calls to a few coaches that A) know the SEC, B) Have experience and knows what it takes to win in this league, and C) can bring credibility to the program….

— That short list for me would consist of Bobby Petrino, Bobby Petrino, Bobby Petrino. Yes he has had A HUGE scandal a year ago, but why wouldn’t you take a feeler for him? He’s coached in the state (Louisville) and could bring instant credibility to a program that has everything to win.

–If Notre Dame wins Saturday night against Michigan, the AP poll will put them in the top 7 in the country, especially if they look impressive doing so.

–But to me, Michigan’s is WAY overrated, and a year or two away from being a player nationally, Still Brady Hoke is a heck of a coach by the way.

—Dear Cory Henry,

Please be Careful what you wish for Saturday.. safe travels dude.

–If you haven’t heard of Teddy Bridgewater, look him up. He’s a Star in the making.

— I love Colin Klein,Bill Synder, and Kansas State. That’s why I think the road trip to Norman to face Oklahoma will be a close one. If Oklahoma is a top 5-10 team and a legit BCS Title contender, you MUST win this game… if not.. We now understand the UTEP game to start the season. Oh, and the MASK is back, enjoy Below:

RANDOM COMMERCIAL THAT CRACKS ME UP:

So it’s Little Ceasers. And this guy is hilarious. I laughed aloud when I first saw it, and laugh every time I see it.

REALITY TV TIME!

A HUGE Shout out to Whitney M! My friend will join Andy Cohen in the WWHL Lounge:

Congrats to her! I just want a shout out on the show. Don’t judge.

That’s it for this Friday, enjoy the games and I’ll be back next week…
