Thursday night:
Arizona @ #9 Oklahoma State

Friday night:
#21 Missouri @ Arizona State

Some other intriguing matchups:
#16 Mississippi State @ Auburn
#11 Virginia Tech @ ECU
#3 Alabama @ #23 Penn State
#12 South Carolina @ Georgia
BYU @ #24 Texas
Notre Dame @ Michigan
Rutgers @ North Carolina
Cincinnati @ Tennessee

I guess RG3 and Baylor don't play this week. What a shame.

My question is this: Why the **** is Notre Dame favored by 3.5 points over Michigan right now? I should be pounding Brady Hoke's Wolverines right now before it goes down to 3, right?

I think so too. I'm not sure how much I like that line giving Arizona +13. Nick Foles and Juron Criner should have a coming out party. I still think it's weird that Weeden is older than Aaron Rodgers.

I'm intrigued and I'll be DVR'ing it. Good game to watch if you want to get a good look at the QB's. I already have a solid opinion of Foles but it won't hurt to see him some more and I definitely want to watch Brandon Weeden.

And as a fan of Rutgers, this game against UNC should be a good barometer of where they're at.

Then there is always Notre Dame/Michigan at the Big House. First ever night game in the Big House and it should be exciting.

Wait, waaaaait...Michigan is a 2 point UNDERDOG to ND? I mean, I know it's in South Bend, but did the odds makers watch Notre Dame last week? How are they favored at this point?

Also, Iowa at -6.5 seems like a great play given recent results vs. Iowa St. But Iowa State's sole purpose in football each year is to beat Iowa. If they went 1-11 and beat Iowa, it would be a successful season. Hell, in 2007 they went 3-9 with a 15-13 win over Iowa that they still bring up as one of their best memories as of late.

If I had to guess, I'd say the final is going to be something like 27-17, but wouldn't be surprised if it was like 24-20 or 21-17. I would not put any money on Iowa.

Not only is Michigan a 2-pt dog right now but they opened at +4.5!!!!!!!!! That's too good to be true. It's fishy as hell. Also that was the reason I started this thread - to get people's thoughts on what I viewed as a RIDICULOUS line.

It should be an interesting duel for the top receiver. Blackmon plays like he's 6'5.
Also, Foles had some nice throws and shows good touch, but his deep ball did float.

Just remember if a line looks too good to be true, it probably is. I'm picking Notre Dame because of it.

Two nice Friday games. I really like FIU. TY Hilton is a baller. FIU was impressive last week and Louisville struggled against Murray St. Should be a close game. Mizzou/Arizona St. is intriguing as well. Some nice prospects in the game. Two up tempo offenses. Hopefully Mizzou looks better than they did yesterday or this could be a blowout.

How did Foles look last night? I am interested to see Osweiler from ASU tonight. He is huge and was a former bball player who looked pretty good last week and last season in limited duty.

JHL6719
09-09-2011, 11:52 AM
I thought Foles looked awesome last night considering he didn't have that beast Criner. But I could also tell that he missed him being on the field too. Not to mention playing from behind the entire game, which I figured both circumstances had the potential to lead to turnovers by Foles, but it didn't.

I don't think Arizona wins that game with Criner, but I think they probably score 2 more TD's and end up with 28 points or so.

Stoops just had no answer defensively for Weeden-to-Blackmon.

Jernigan was a third rounder. Hilton has to be at least a second rounder. He's much more explosive. He might not put up the numbers Jernigan did, but get him a QB at the next level and watch out. Not too mention his return skills.

He has upside oozing out of his eyeballs though. The arm strength, mechanics, and athleticism don't come together like that all the time. Mechanics are the most impressive thing so far. His delivery is loose, easy, and fluid.

Again, super early though. He's obviously got a heck of a lot to work on.

Am I the only one who thinks Burfict is a little overrated? Don't get me wrong, the guy has talent. He just gets taken out of so many plays whether it's by his own doing or not. He just doesn't wrap up and make enough tackles as a middle linebacker. The guy in the middle should consistently be around the ball and making plays.

On another note, how bout that rope???

I go back and forth on this. I've got Te'o and Keuchly ranked ahead of him right now because they show up more often. When Burfict shows up, he shows up in a big way though. It's rare you find a linebacker in this day and age that can legitimately effect a game beyond the tackle sheet.

He's played pretty well this game aside from getting taken out by his own guy. The forced fumble was a direct result of him getting into the backfield early and putting an arm on the guy, even though he was blocked.

ElectricEye
09-09-2011, 10:42 PM
I personally love the fact that he's crazy. I've never heard a peep about him being a bad teammate outside of that one ticky tacky fight thing. Defense is partially about personality and intensity. Give me a crazy SOB like Burfict or Lewis everything else being equal.

Te'o and Keuchly are so polished. It's night and day between them and Burfict. As soon as I wrote that, he stoned Josey in the backfield. You never know what you're gonna get from him. A middle linebacker has to be consistent and not just some loose cannon running around the field.

Other notes:
Finally a Sheldon Richardson sighting, for the wrong reason.

ASU needs to get Marshall going downhill, not east-west.

Did that punt really go 80 yards in the air? I couldn't believe it when I saw it.

gator3guy
09-09-2011, 10:47 PM
It also doesn't help Burfict playing against a spread offense like this. He's not much of a space player. I'm not just judging his performance this week. I seen a good bit of games last year and watched the first half of the UC-Davis game last week. Again, love his talent, he's just not what I want as a MLB.

It's true.
