NCAA Football

I am now a bigger NCAA fan than NFL fan (thanks to the Miami Dolphins). Here is my top 15 at this point.

1) USC: Too much talent. I can see Cal and Oregon scaring them, but not winning.

2) LSU: I don't think they'll stay here all year, but don't know who will beat them. Probably Arkansas the last week.

3) OU: Bob Stoops has his team under the radar and ready for another trip to a big BCS to get routed.

4) UF: Too young to go undefeated, but talent-wise they're as good as anyone in the country.

5) CAL: Under the radar, but should be undefeated going into USC. Ask Tennessee if they are for real.

6) WVU: Not enough defense, and now that South Florida has added another tough team on the schedule I don't see them going undefeated.

7) PSU: Joe Pa has a good chance to be in the Rose Bowl this year.

8) Texas: To many athletes not to be a factor in the BCS.

9) Rutgers: I love this team, but they will lose at least one and that is probably one too many for a Big East team.

10) Clemson: They always find a way to give a few games away, will this be the year they live up to their potential??

11) Oregon: Not too sure about the Ducks, we'll find out against USC and Cal later on.

12) Hawaii: Probably going to be undefeated and in a BCS. That will make for an exciting game if it is Hawaii vs WVU.

13) OSU: Not sold on the gators whipping boys. We'll see later against PSU and Wisconsin.

14) Wisc: Ok, Faulkner played a team that played the Citadel, who played with Wisconsin for 3 quarters, enough said.

15) Lou: Losing to Kentucky hurts, but I could still see them winning the Big East.

On the rise:

USF: Beating Auburn lost some luster last week, but I think they are for real.

The other USC: Spurrier gets a real test this week @ LSU.

Arkansas: I know they lost a game they shouldn't have, but Mcfadden makes them a threat in the SEC West.

About to drop:

Alabama: With Georgia and FSU on the schedule I see a split at best.

Kentucky: Now its time to play in the varsity level.

Texas A&M: The Big 12 North is awful again.

Pep Rally

Had a good "black out" pep rally last night. Not much fun for me, but Avery loved the glow in the dark necklace and sticks. She danced and had fun. She is growing up quickly.

Makes you proud...

Love it when very intelligent people make comments about how great our education system is. Watch Mario Lopez's reaction at the end of this...

Key words: U.S. Americans, Iraq???, Asian countries???

Reminds me of the Billy Madison quote, "we are all now dumber for hearing that".
