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.
If the game meant everything for the Packers and nothing for the Bears, would the Bears lay down in order to get the weakest team possible into the playoffs, or would they play hard to knock the Packers out?
