Hello there blog world,
Another weekend has come and gone and there were more wins and losses just as usual. More upsets in the college football scene this week with many top 25 teams losing in their rivalry game while others just snuck by with a victory. Nebraska pulled out a nice win at Colorado to wrap up the regular season. Next up: Texas. I’ve heard a lot of people talking about this game… many don’t give Nebraska a shot but i’ve heard a few saying that Texas should watch out because they haven’t faced a D like Nebraska’s yet. The toughest D they faced was Oklahoma and the barely won that game 16-13. So I think it should be interesting. Texas is going for a place in the national title game and Nebraska is going for the Big 12 championship and berth to a BCS bowl game. I can’t wait to watch and see what happens. Huge game this week with Oregon vs Oregon St. for the Pac 10 title and Rose Bowl berth on the line. Since the Ducks have the home game i say advantage goes to them and i think they will pull out a ten point win over the Beavers. Unfortunately for MNU, they lost their 2nd round match up to national power house Carroll College up in Helena, Montana Saturday. They were within a FG at the half but ended up losing 34-13 as Carroll dominated the second half. Hopefully the Pioneers can use this as a stepping stone to becoming one of the next great teams in the NAIA and can start becoming a playoff and national contender year in and year out.
On to the NFL… Well, the Chiefs are back to being the Chiefs again. I didn’t expect the Chiefs to really turn things around but i was hoping for them to be competitive. Hopefully they can get back to being competitive in their next 3 match ups that I think they have a chance at winning. The Seahawks had a nice win in St. Louis against the Rams…. so it was the Rams but a win is a win. I hope the Hawks stick with Just Forsett as their main RB from here out… he’s the better back and i think can be good for this team in the future. Let him show us what he can do the rest of the way! In other NFL news… The Saints won the big game against the Patriots proving they belong with the elite teams this season. Saints vs Patriots was my early Superbowl pick… but the way the Pats are playing it is hard to keep them in Superbowl team talk. Everyone is going to the Colts now of course… but i don’t like the Colts and I think they will choke. The Chargers, who are used to choking, could be a contender. We think that every year, but this year I think they might be able to make a run at the Superbowl… we shall see.
Hope you all had a good Thanksgiving and enjoyed some football along the way!
