Monday Morning Look Back

Well, a weekend that didn't look too entertaining at the start ended up producing some excellent games. On to the recap....
  • I'll continue to stick by my guns on JaMarcus Russell. He is the best quarterback in the SEC. His numbers this weekend, granted the Tigers played the Bullies, were sick. 18-20, 330 Yards, 3 TDs.
  • LSU might very well be the nation's best team.
  • What a difference a coordinator can make. Last year's much maligned Eric Ainge is playing like an All-SEC caliber quarterback under David Cutcliffe.
  • Another close 4th quarter game, and another loss for Alabama and Mike Shula. It's hard for me to believe he is worth the $1.8 million he is pulling down.
  • How about the Kentucky Wildcats? 5 games into the season and they are over the .500 mark.
  • Can anyone remember a time when Vanderbilt beat a team by 29? On the same note, how can Temple be as bad as they are? I'd like to watch a game just to witness their futility.
  • UGA is in serious trouble if it doesn't find its offensive groove. The defense is stout, but with UT coming to Athens this weekend and consecutive road games at Florida, Kentucky, and Auburn looming, the 'Dawgs will not survive playing like they have been.
  • Brent Schaeffer continued to be an Achilles heel for the Ole Miss Rebels, though he came up big with a 4th quarter TD pass.
  • The Florida offense is awesome to watch. Chris Leak is very good and Tim Tebow will flourish under Urban Meyer's offensive system.
  • Tim Tebow is very fun to watch and I can't recall a player that plays with so much excitement and enthusiasm.
  • I feel bad for Dennis Franchione. With his seat a bit warm, his A&M team lost a heartbreaker to Tech. By the way, does anyone else dislike Mike Leach and Texas Tech? He just totally rubs me the wrong way.
  • Will Larry Coker even make it through this season? I'm confident he is gone by season's end, but had the 'Canes lost to Houston, he might be packing right now.
  • After the 1st month of football, it appears to me that Ohio State is clearly the best team in the country and head over heels better than anyone else with the lone exception being LSU.
  • Michigan has a solid football team, yet I just get a feeling that this team will blow a game under Lloyd Carr's watchful eye.
  • Unfortunately, college football fans will not know how good West Virginia is because they play absolutely nobody outside of Louisville.
  • John L Smith????
  • Here's to hoping Florida puts the retro unis back where they belong....the closet.
