NCAA Football Week 2

After a painful opening weekend, here’s my thoughts and this week’s ‘Cron rankings.

Kentucky vs. Louisville.
This was the most painful game to watch that I have ever witnessed. Both teams were AWFUL. We might be scoreless in the 30th overtime right now if Louisville hadn’t given up those turnovers. The biggest surprise was Louisville’s utter lack of anything resembling skill on offense. At least the defense finally showed up after taking a year off.

Kentucky fans: don’t get too worked up over the Cats’ defense – they were ineffective. The UL offense is solely responsible for those defensive numbers you racked up. Also, your offense, quite plainly, stinks. You guys are going to get blown out at least 4 times this year, especially once you start playing the conference. Expect at least 7 losses this year, including a 24th straight loss to Tennessee (and that will be a very badly played game by you).

Tennessee vs. UCLA.
It pains me to say this, but I called this one in the last post. There is no reason for the Vols to have lost this game. Fingers could be pointed generously, but the biggest lies with (as usual) Arian Foster. Mr. Fumble-Fingers destroyed any chance of putting the game away with his fumble on the UCLA 5-yard line. That’s what he’s known for – fumbling. Daniel Lincoln also missed 4 field goals. Yes, 4! One was mercifully called back due to a penalty, which forced the Vols to punt instead. He finished (including the one called back) 1-5 kicking on the day. Jeff Hall he ain’t. Lincoln hasn’t exactly inspired confidence in his tenure as kicker. I guess Crompton and Co. will have to work out the kinks in the offense so we don’t have to rely on the kicker.

Rich Rodriguez has ruined Michigan. ‘Nuff Ced.

Not bad for this year’s debut. They looked remarkably improved over the comedy show debacle that was the Bill Callahan era. Give Bo Pelini 4 years to get only players recruited by him on the team and I shudder to think what might happen.

And with that, I give you this week’s rankings.

  1. LSU
  2. Oklahoma
  3. Georgia
  4. Ohio State
  5. Southern Cal
  6. Auburn
  7. Florida
  8. West Virginia
  9. Texas
  10. Wisconsin
  11. Missouri
  12. Kansas
  13. South Florida
  14. Tennessee
  15. Alabama
  16. Clemson
  17. Arizona State
  18. Texas Tech
  19. Penn State
  20. Fresno State

    i predict UK to be 8-4 this year. they will lose to Alabama, FLA, Georgia, and Tennessee but take the other games. I may be going to the UK vs WKU game but will have to watch half of it and then come back for Deaf Worship that night..i dunno. I do not see UK redoing what they did last year, no way.

    I watched part of that Louisville-Kentucky game and thought about you. It was, indeed, painful on both ends.

    Not so fast, Mr. Dye. 😉

    Once the Cats finish Western Kentucky, they will lose 6 straight. The only winnable game on the schedule might be Vanderbilt. And we all know Vandy is no longer a doormat. Conceivably, they could lose 8 straight after playing the Hilltoppers.

    Hey so far…6 – 4…. two games left… my prediection was 8 – 4 for the season…all thats left is Vandy and Tennessee… and a possible bowl game. Ya think UK may have a shot at winning both of these if they play like they played Alabama and Georgia… I didnt even think they could contest with those two. Who knows??
