No 3rd & Long Tonight…but LOOK What’s UP Next Week!!!

5 Nov

3rdandlong

Since this week has so much going on I decided to write up things that are of interest and let them brew until next week.

Women’ Football –

·        West Virginia Wonders were announced as a new team in the WFA, but then the NWFA recanted that transfer

·        The WFA has 4 regions set up, including the remaining team of the WPFL.

o  More teams are still being added

o  When is their cutoff date for the 2009 season?

·        How long will it be before the WFA and NWFA merge?

·        Did C.M. contact the IWFL about merging before quitting?

·        Another week has passed and nothing has been announced about what is new with the IWFL

o  Was a gag order placed or are people that good at keeping secrets?

o  Site has yet to be updated with new divisions and teams.

§ Who got booted and who’s playing who?

·        How was everyone’s experience at the Football Camp or All-Star Event?

o  Were both a success?

o  What did the coaches meeting accomplish at the All-Star event?

Record

This week’s opponent

1

Texas Tech Red Raiders

4

9-0

Oklahoma State Cowboys

 

This offense has a defense! Can they do it two weeks in a row when they are used to failing?

2

Alabama Crimson Tide

3

9-0

LSU

 

If they want to be #1, they need to beat UF. LSU poses somewhat of a trap not a challenge.

3

Penn State Nittany Lions

2

9-0

Iowa

 

They drop because everyone else is starting to play tough opponents, they haven’t and won’t.

4

Texas Longhorns

1

8-1

Baylor

 

Lost on the last play of the game. How many people will remember that they dropped the game-clinching INT on the previous play?

5

Florida Gators

5

7-1

Vanderbilt

 

Decimated Georgia and now have to stay focused or see another Ole Miss defeat happen.

6

Oklahoma State Cowboys

8

8-1

Texas Tech Red Raiders

 

Can prove that they belong this week by beating TT. Not likely but should be another good one.

7

Utah Utes

7

9-0

Texas Christian Horned Frogs

 

This is their season. I think TCU has the advantage but won’t count the Utes out.

8

Boise State Broncos

9

8-0

Utah St.

 

Still looking toward that Fresno State game and a spot in the BCS.

9

Oklahoma Sooners

10

8-1

Texas A&M

 

Keep winning big but two games loom large on the horizon, TT and OSU. Make or break season.

10

Texas Christian Horned Frogs

11

9-1

Utah Utes

 

Once they beat Utah, let the clambering begin for them to be picked above Boise St even though they have a loss.

11

Southern California Trojans

12

7-1

California

 

Another win by 50, but against who? Exactly! They need all kinds of help and that is to just get to the Rose Bowl.

12

Ball State Cardinals

13

8-0

Northern Illinois

 

Like I have said before, they have a long way to go but undefeated is undefeated!

13

Brigham Young Cougars

NR

8-1

San Diego St.

 

One bad loss to TCU still lingers but they still have Utah on the schedule, someone they will be rooting for this weekend.

14

West Virginia Mountaineers

NR

6-2

Cincinnati

 

I rank them because they have turned it around somewhat. They have lots to prove and the question is, can they?

15

Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets

NR

6-2

North Carolina

 

They escaped with a win against FSU, thanks to a fumble on the 2-yd line and yes, I am bitter!

·         BCS is creating more controversy, what’s new?

·        My proposed Playoff system for the FBS.

NFL Football

·        Tennessee is still undefeated

·         What is the best division?

·        League parity or just bad football?
