It'll be interesting to see if Coach Sherman can turn things around. I'm not an A&M fan, but I do keep up with things like this.
Arkansas State??? You cannot lose to them on your home turf. Ever. A&M has got to be flat-out embarrassed, Synopsis. Imagine the taunts the Aggies and their fans will get in Austin when the time comes that they play my Longhorns on Thanksgiving night.

A&M blows most of the time. They are always overrated. However, make sure to take care of business with the Ags this time, unlike the last 2 years for gosh sakes.

USC can only be beaten most of the time by another Pac-10 team (yeah, yeah, Vince Young in 2005). Pac-10 teams play each other every year and only once in a while, once in a while, another team will take them down, but ultimately not win the Pac-10 title. USC normally destroys other conference teams including the SEC. They are so loaded with top talent, it is silly. UVA stood no chance. Sanchez is a great QB, the RBs (all 48 of them) are sick, and the defense is brutal. I doubt Ohio State stands much of a chance. They are just too slow, ala Michigan vs. Oregon last year.

But, 52-7, yowzaa!!!I'm not so sure my Ducks will be able to slow them down, but, stranger things have happened (Stanford, cough, cough...)

I was impressed with Texas and Bama, and well, of course my Duckies.

Great post as usual!! I do agree with you. Speaking of your Ducks, my neighbors are huge Duck fans, they both went to school at Oregon and the wife actually ran track there. Anyway, they and a bunch of others are going to the game at Purdue. If I can rearrange my schedule that weekend, we may go too as they have extra tickets, I'll let you know how that goes. I like your ducks, their fans are especially fun to hang out with!! Cheers!
