I think Kansas gets exposed this year.


I don't think it's so much that Kansas gets exposed as much as they play too many good teams to make it back to the Big 12 championship game. Missouri's conference schedule is as soft as Kansas' was last year. Their opener against Illinois should tell a lot about both teams.

So, while I think they can play with USC it will take a perfect game to actually beat them.


I promised myself I wouldn't say stuff like this this year for fear of them choking at the end and me having to eat crow again.. but..

Just this once.. I'll say it. USC is even more overrated than people say Ohio State is.

And if they do beat the Buckeyes, I'll gladly suck it up and own it.

The USC offense has to answer a lot of questions, but that defense is legit. The Buckeyes are going to have a hard time doing anything other than run straight ahead at them. Fortunately, that's their strength, but I'm not sure they can move the ball against them consistently.

BTW... I just ran a simulated season on NCAA 09 with the Buckeyes, and they did indeed beat USC 21-17. :D

That's not totally out of the question, but I think it just produced the two teams with the easiest schedules.

I just wanted to point out that real honest-to-god football was played today. Our long national nightmare is over.

And Stanford beat Oregon St. :shock:

The Beavers are so unpredictable week to week that this game didn't really surprise me as much as South Carolina's massacre of the Wolfpack.

NC St. is probably the worst team in a bad conference, so that didn't shock me very much.

agreed. i'm convinced Caroina's D could have left the field and the Pack STILL may not have scored. they were awful offensively.

suck failure, everybody else. :smt029 8) :-D :P :P
