Games Watched: West Virginia v. Louisville, Virginia Tech v. Miami

Observations: Due to programming decisions and recovering from the MPRE, I didn't watch much football this weekend. But from what I did see, I now know why Ohio State and Michigan are well ahead of everyone else in the BCS rankings. Louisville's win isn't as impressive as the media is making it out to be - the Cards' defense gave up 34 points and essentially won because of 2 critical turnovers. Also, let's not forget that Mountaineer defense was terrible. If anything this game showed how one dimensional West Virginia is. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if Rutgers shut down the Cards on Thursday night. Don't really have any thoughts from the Miami game except that I enjoy watching them lose.

Top 25 Comments: I'm lost with 5-6-7. I keep going back and forth with Florida, Auburn, and LSU. I'm putting LSU 5 because it seems the most complete team of the three. I put Florida 6 because its offense is better than Auburn's. Personally, I think 3 is too high for Louisville, but I'm going to give them the benefit of the doubt - we'll learn more about them this Thursday.

I notice that this blog has gone silent since the fall of the Wolverines. Possibly because there is no more interest in What the Deuce Land?
