    Stanford at Oregon St on Friday. This will tell us how OSU is at home and Stanford on the road. Do they just have USCs number?

    BYU at UM. BYU had UCLA on the ropes, but can they win at the Big House? Early game at 10am MT.

    LSU at Syracuse. How much does Forunette run for? I'm thinking 250 yards before he is benched. Early game at 10am MT

    Okie Light at Texas at 130pm MT. The fight to save his job starts with this game. It's already not looking great.

    Tennessee at Florida at 130. Both teams aren't great, but t looks like this will impact the SEC east. Only good east team looks to be Georgia so far.

    TCU at TT at 245. TCU has not looked like the #3 team in the nation. Potential upset special of the week.

    Aggy at Arky. Outside of the Buffs against Nichols this is going to be the second biggest blowout of the week. Bielmas seat gets very hot.

    Cal at UDub at 3. I'm expecting a romp by the Bears. Cal is a sleeper in the North. Probably won't win but will scare the top 2 teams.

    MSU at Auburn at 530. Is Auburn really that bad? Expect sweeping changes this week for them. Boom did not have the d ready last week.

    UCLA at Arizona at 6. Pivotal game to see where Arizona ranks in he South. UCLA looks to be the top dog this year. But can they win on the road?

    Utah at UO at 630. Ducks O looks good, but that defense isn't very good. Luckily Utah is not a juggernaut on O. Watch this one to see how we may fare next week.

    USC at ASU at 830. Both teams are a letdown. Can USC bounce back? Can ASU show improvement?

    Gunner Kiel took a bad late hit to tihe head and he is down. Laid out, motionless.

    Taken away by ambulance.

    EDIT: Kiel is conscious and has movement in all of his extremities.

    Unreal, the Cincy backup QB is a Freshman. He's thrown for 485 yds and 4 TD's

    Can Memphis keep them from scoring to tie it up?

    This Memphis v Cincy game has been great. Little too high scoring for my taste, but close the whole way. Fun one.

    Is this the battle of the Big 12's next invites?

    Certainly that was a big part of Bohn getting the AD job at Cincy

    Too bad, wanted Cincy to tie it up. That QB was freakin amazing.

    Cincinnati is a no-brainer if they decide to expand IMO, and Memphis is finally showing life in football. 10 wins last year and making another run at that this season.

    Memphis and Cincy are also in good recruiting territory which would project well for them when they do get the bump.

    Cincinatti would be a good east coast partner for West Virginia. They are a good TV market and would make scheduling much more logical for sports other than football.

    You could say the same things about Memphis but I think their ceiling as a program is much lower than Cincinatti. They are surrounded by SEC programs (and ACC) that have to much control of the market.

    Debating whether to go to Virginia/Boise State tonight. It should be a good game (Boise favored by 2.5), although UVA being ill-prepared and getting killed is always a strong possibility. Long gone are the days of 10 years ago when this game would have drawn 62,000. With rain in the vicinity and UVA having an incompetent coach in his 6th year, they'll be lucky to get much over 40k.

    Cincy has a rather large program looming just to the north. They will never be a dominant program in OH and will get OSU's scraps.

    Memphis has FedEx money behind it. Lots of investment in their stadium and also a bowl game tie-in.

    Big XII missed out with Louisville. They're an odd man out in the ACC. It's nice for hoops, but it's just odd seeing the ACC with an Ohio Valley commuter school.

    B12 and the other major conferences all have some schools that are not the dominant team in their market area. Other than Texas none of the B12 schools are bigger than A&M, Okie Lite is second place in that state as is Iowa State.

    B1G is happy to have Michigan State and Notre Dame is #1 in it's area. In the PAC we have a number of schools that are clearly #2.

    The Cincinnati market is large enough to be a quality market even with tOSU in the state. Memphis is a good market but I see the allegiances in that area are even more strongly set with less available fans to draw from.

    Kinda interested to see if southern miss can make it a game at memorial stadium. Sounds like Nebraska's defense is pretty banged up.

    The body language of UVA players is awful.
