Only 6 more days until real games kick off! With that in mind here's the rapid fire version of what I found the most interesting this week.
The Texas Tech season preview over
at Barking Carnival
is exceptional. Need a laugh? I highly recommend it. Even Red Raider fans should be able to appreciate the comedic genius in this one. The WWL should throw some cash at Scipio Tex to liven things up on Game Day.
I went to pick up a case of beer last weekend and noticed some Bud Light cans in Maroon and Orange. It took me a minute to remember that I am now living in ACC country and piece together that the cans were in fact Virginia Tech "Fan Cans."
Hawaii is considering scrapping their pregame dance routine
. If they go that route at least Coach McMackin won't have to sweat getting in trouble again for commenting on anyone else's moves due to the elimination of future dance offs.
THE Ohio State university put together this educational video
to remind their fans not to disrespect Navy when the Mids roll into town next Saturday. Nice job. How sweet would it be if Navy pulled the upset?
Rich Rodriguez plans to use three QB's in their opener
against Western Michigan. Rodriguez classified the three headed monster of Nick Sheridan, Tate Forcier and Denard Robinson as "neat." Okay. We Is Notre Dame had a good take on it
and I agree, if you have three starting QBs that really means you have ZERO. As a side note Denard Robinson doesn't tie his shoes. I wonder how that will work out for him in college?
Miami fell victim to the latest iteration of QB's going "What I'm not the starter, I'm out of here!"
In this case it's a double whammy and if you think about Robert Marve bolting last spring that's three in a pretty short period of time. Jacory Harris better be tough. Whatever happened to sticking around and waiting your turn? Don't you know who Mitch Mustain is?
Speaking of Mustain Pete Carroll has officially named freshman Matt Barkley as the Trojan Starting Quarterback
ahead of Aaron Corp and Mustain. Interesting. Starting a true freshman QB is a dangerous proposition I don't care how talented he is. He's Pete though. It will work out.
