I'm traditionally not a UCLA fan but does their potential win over OU show any strength to the PAC-10 conference..

Arkansas said that they were gonna treat this game like USC was just "another SEC team...."

What the hell is that????? they're trailing 42-10 at half....









Go, SC!

I think that once again NU and OU aren't so far apart.

I think OU has a lot more talent, but there seems to be a certain..... uncertainty within the two teams. But I didn't see the OU UCLA game.




I would need someone who has seen both, which would be rare - but, compared to Nebraska, and/or Oklahoma, what is USC's verion of the WCO?

I wonder if Bill Calahan at Nebraska is running something too complex for college kids, which could make sense. But I would think that BC would be able to make for that adjustment. Then again...

I heard him saying that the biggest difference was "how slow" college is compared to NFL. Which makes sense, considering what you hear from college kids who go pro.

But still...............

What's not to like...
The funny thing is, Spurrier is now in an 0-3 streak vs. Alabama.

SEC cheerleaders are always entertaining to watch, even in their team's defeat. Although, I will say that I was at a USC (Southern Cal) alumni tailgate picnic before the Au-buhn game (at USC in 2002) and the USC band and cheerleaders came to provide some pre-game entertainment. There is something intriguing about those young ladies in their old school cheerleader uniforms. The sweaters and what-not would be a bit much here in the SEC, especially in Alabama, Louisiana, Florida...

No. OU has also been beaten by TCU this year. I will say that USC is the real deal, again this year, until proven otherwise. But I am not convinced of the rest of the PAC-10, yet.

I don't know what the deal is, but something is wrong with OU this year. They've been my #2 team since Stoops has been there, but they have been known to choke at inopportune times. This year, it seems they have chosen to do so much earlier than usual.

It would be rather nice if OU lost to NU this year..........

but I don't know about that.......


I am calling our offense

Bill-Calahan-san's Drunken Master West Coast (offense)
confuses opponents and ourselves, apparently.





But yeah, something's brewin' in Okalahoma, and it's kinda stanky, apparently.

I'll bet Stoops is really thinking about that Florida job he passed up....

I really can't figure that team out!

As far as USC, don't get me wrong, folks..I've been a USC fan since I played ball in the '60s...it was the college closest to home, I met former greats Pat Haden and JK McKay at several "student council" events and their followers included a lot of guys that I played with in the South Bay..

Right now, this team is just the Men against the boys...Fresno State was supposed to be the biggest obstacle in their path to the crown but they were beat last night by an unranked Oregon...

I'm thinking USC v. Texas in the Big One! I'd like to see how they handle QB Young since their running defense has a lot of holes but that's 11 games away....

^Excellent.

How badly did Notre Dame lose? (I stopped watching halfway through.) We can't let Michigan get too far down in the rankings, it needs to be worth our while when we whoop their asses this season. I think we're at 9 right now, if only we'd won against Texas we'd be in perfect position for the Natl Champs.

ND was down 20 i do believe... and came back to tie the game and send it to overtime, where they unfortunatly lost.

charlie weis has done a great job thus far... he has the team believing they can beat anyone, has the right plays set up to give them a chance to win... once he starts getting his own recruits in, it should be fun times in south bend once again..

I was lucky to get tickets to the Arkansas game (90,000+ in attendance).

After one quarter, SC had 8 plays on offense with 4 touchdowns.

In the 4th quarter, the second and third string quarterbacks scored touchdowns.

And the punter almost made it the entire game without breaking a sweat (one kick).

More challenges to come.....

they trailed 38-17 in the 3rd.
High school athletes, especially on the offensive side of things, who watch these games on TV are going to be calling Charlie, rather than him having to call them. ND in 4-5 years may look a lot like USC does now if they can get some top notch defenders in as well.

USC does not run the WCO, it's more of a spread. Very simple plays, a lot of formations. Basically, USC goes for efficiency rather than complexity. It is an offense that really wouldn't work with an NFL D, but in College where there is a great disparity in talent is extremely effective.

The problem with the WCO, which 'SC tried to run during the dark ages of He Who Shall Not be Named, is that it is too complex. The playbook is thicker than the bible, and it is too much for a college team with less time to learn. I have read that it takes a good 3 to 4 years to pick it up. That certainly will not work in college.

More sick stats: USC had the ball for 92 seconds in the first quarter. Result 28 points.

Over the two games, Matt Leinart has lead 16 drives. Result, 13 TD's, 1 missed field goal, 1 ended by halftime and 1 INT (result of a horrid non-PI call).

The beauty of Matt is that he knows how to read Defenses so well, he can audible as a college qb. That is not fair to opposing Defenses.

Well, the jury's still out on the gutty little bruins. I just don't think OU is very good this year. Their offense is horrid. I do think that ASU, Cal and Oregon are quality. With Cal and ASU a bit better than Oregon. ASU should have beaten LSU, however their coach choked on that 4 an 11 call.

I will concede that Stanford is really bad, and OSU, WSU and AZ are marginally average. Although, because of the familiarity amongst conference foes, you could have some tough games.
