Wow, I told you two weeks ago that Oregon had a tough one on Thursday night. It just keeps getting tougher too. Not only did Oregon have their national title hopes shattered by unranked Arizona, but they also lost their Heisman candidate Dennis Dixon for the rest of the season. Really tough loss. Which brings me to the question:
Do the Oregon Cheerleaders have 200 outfit choices too?
Surprisingly decent looking chicks for the Pacific Northwest.
Looking at the matchups today, obviously Michigan v. Ohio State is the big game of the day. In what could should be Lloyd Carr’s last game and will be Henne, Hart and Big Jake Long’s last game, Michigan should have a punchers chance if Henne and Hart actually start. In fact, after bouncing on the sidelines like a kid missing his Ritalin last weekend, there is no way Hart doesn’t start today. I’ve seen him check himself into games before, and today is his day. With that said, Michigan has to be clicking on all cylinders to beat the Ohio State juggernaut.
The BIGGEST game of the week though is Duke at Notre Dame.
I mean this is the Duke Football Team’s chance to win one for the ages. To come from the consensus worst team in the nation, winning just 4 games since 2003, and nothing at all last season. Prior to 2003 they put together a multiple season losing streak, and now we have the chance to take down one of the most storied programs in football history.
Also, it is creeping up again, parity is forcing all the teams that looked like they were going to get frozen out of the National Championship game back into the picture. Remember when we were about to watch Boston College v. South Florida for the national championship? Well, now we are about to get Kansas v. Oklahoma, because LSU has to make it through the rest of the SEC and Arkansas to make it to New Orleans. If they do, they roll, but the door is still open.
