There are 4 games this weekend that have caught my eye and will keep me watching ESPN's Bottomline for results
Michigan State vs Notre Dame - I look for the South Bend Bubble to burst and for Michigan State to wake up from the nightmare that was the Cal Golden Bears last week
UCLA vs Colorado - a longtime Buffs fans from my days of living in the Denver area - got to hope that the Buffs don't go down as meekly as they did to the Trojans - tough game in Pasadena but I think Ralphie will run !!!
California vs Air Force - this could be a track meet - I like Mom's alma mater and hope that the Golden Bears will keep their surprising season going
and finally....Princeton vs Lehigh - grew up in Princeton listening to Howard David call the games - now I listen to the worst announcers in all college football - the student announcers on WPRB - they need to be heard to truly comprehend how bad they are.......
Difference between this Notre Dame team and Notre Dame teams of the past few years are this: Defense travels, and Bob Davies was a seven point handicap on the sideline. Remember, last time they didn't have Davies on staff they went 11-1 with a team many expected not to perform well and should have won the national title. Other big game this weekend will be on TBS, as a miracle has occurred and Kansas State will actually take on a non-conference ranked team (I guess hell froze over). After the 40-3 blasting of Colorado last week, I look for Petey Poodle's USC team to do what most Pete Carroll teams do the week after a big victory, stink the joint out. Should portions of the tropical storm/hurricane impact the South Florida region, Boston College/Miami could be a relatively close game.
Thank you Mr. Wanz for the check, now you get an AWA World Title Reign. But be careful, my boy Greg is a heat machine.
Aggies can knock off Texas (Chris Simms + Big Spot= Choke). If the game was at Pitt, I'd give them an even money shot, in Little Havana at night, thats walking into a trap. But, then again, who had Va. Tech throwing for over 500 yards and losing....
