Listen in for the most comprehensive College Bowl Game breakdown that doesn’t include Mark May and Lou Holtz (you can thank me later). Anthony Dinwoodey Morris, Dougie Christison, Jr., and Michael Scott Gatrell join me to discuss Alabama v. LSU, Robert Griffin III, and D.A. Points….I mean….De’Anthony Thomas of Oregon.
New BCS Standings:
1- LSU – .9933 (Previous Rank – 1) 6- Arkansas – .7974 (8)
2- Oklahoma State – .9642 (2) 7- Clemson – .6935 (9)
3- Alabama – .9099 (3) 8- Virginia Tech – .6755 (10)
4- Oregon – .8755 (7) 9- Stanford – .6747 (4)
5- Oklahoma – .8400 (6) 10- Boise State – .5959 (5)
LSU is still the class of college football, but plenty of teams proved this week that they deserve a shot at the BCS Championship Game. #2 Oklahoma State pulverized (66-6) the same Texas Tech team that beat #5 Oklahoma, and #4 Oregon controlled previously #4 Stanford 53-30 on Stanford’s home field. Several tough games remain for the top teams left…Oregon still has to play USC (don’t be shocked if USC figures out a way to win this game…Oregon is also on track to have to play in the Pac-12 Championship Game, most likely facing Arizona State), LSU has #6 Arkansas on November 25th (winner plays in the SEC Championship Game, most likely against a surging Georgia team), and Oklahoma and Oklahoma State square off on December 3rd. If LSU and Oklahoma State win out, we’ll see them in the BCS title game, we know this for certain (and you know I desperately want to see Mike Gundy at age 44 winning a BCS Championship – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aoMmbUmKN0E), but several possible match-ups still exist, including an Alabama v. LSU rematch (not complaining). Hey NBA and NBPA, we don’t miss you right now.
Do I believe in moral victories? Absolutely. It would have been great if Utah would have been able to pull of the victory on Saturday in the Coliseum, but the gritty performance proved a lot about this team’s ability to go on the road and smack a big-time opponent in the mouth, especially after getting off to a slow start. (And did I use an Ivan Drago analogy to better illustrate this during the show? Absolutely again.) Utah fans should take comfort in several things that happened on Saturday: Jordan Wynn didn’t turn the ball over, moved the chains, and put his team in position to win a tough game on the road. Devonte Christopher, Dres Anderson, and Reggie Dunn proved that Utah has some legit playmakers. Joe Kruger is a monster. Brian Blechen is a crazy person. John White IV may be the toughest dude on the field and is quickly winning the hearts of every Utah fan on planet earth. With that said, what can we expect to happen this Saturday in Provo? Flip a coin….it’s honestly our best option.
