Hey for this weekly column, I am just going to write a few notes about the week of college football that just happened.
LSU looked phenomenal last night against my favorite team, Virginia Tech. Everything seemed to work. They did an absolutely fantastic job against VT's two marvelous linebackers, opening huge holes. LSU looked like a team that deserved to be number one.
Oregon looked amazing yesterday against Michigan. Dennis Dixon is an absolutely incredible quarterback, he threw for more than 300 yards and more than 75 yards rushing. If it wasn't for being sacked a few times, he would have had more than 100 yards rushing. Jonathon Stewart also looked incredible, rushing for 111 yards. Oregon had some great defense, and remember, Michigan has Chad Henne, Mike Hart (who played great) and Mario Manningham.
Oklahoma is looking national championship caliber team. They scored 51 points against Miami's amazing defense. Sam Bradford, the redshirt freshman, played great, tying a school record with 5 touchdown passes.
Colt McCoy played OK in Texas's win. I had actually picked TCU to rout Texas after Texas's seven-point win last week. I think Texas still has some flaws, though.
I am not sure if Penn State was really good or if Notre Dame was really bad. Notre Dame had no offensive touchdowns, and Tom Zbikowski had the only touchdown for the Fighting Irish. The offensive line needs to protect Clausen much better, if they want to have any chance of finishing above .500 this year.
West Virginia really turned it around, after being down 13-6 at half. WVU then decided to play a little football in the second half, with Pat White and Steve Slaton scorching the Marshall defense for 42 second half points.
My Player of the Week: Brian Brohm who had 401 yards and 5 touchdown passes, leading Louisville to a 58-42 win over Middle Tennessee.
My Team of the Week: LSU was all around dominate against Virginia Tech in the game of the week, winning 48-7.
