Kortney Shane’s College Football Preview: Week 7

13 Oct


This Weekend Will Feature a Battle Camp Randall Stadium


Let’s begin…

    The story of the weekend was South Carolina beating Alabama. I watch the game, and for the first time I knew Alabama wasn’t going to be able to come back in the fourth quarter. I could just tell by the way The Gamecocks stopped the run. Steve Spurrier decided to make Greg McElroy try to beat them, and he couldn’t do it. I’m not going to say McElroy is not a big game guy. I just think he was put in an unfamiliar position, and couldn’t figure out what to do. South Carolina played a perfect game, and Spurrier had a flawless game plan. I have to give South Carolina an A+. With that being said, Alabama is still the best team in the country. Don’t forget they played Arkansas, Florida, and South Carolina in succession. Those coaches have 3 combined national titles, and 4 years of NFL head coaching experience. For Alabama to come through unscathed is asking a lot.

    The other story that surfaced Sunday was the idea that Boise State would play in the national championship if the season ended today. Not only would The Broncos play in the National title game, but top ranked Ohio State would be #5 in the BCS. “You know what though…the season doesn’t end today.” If the season would have ended last week, Denard Robinson would have won the Heisman trophy. So, I’m not entertaining these hypotheticals where you eliminate half of the regular season.

    This week we’re going to Madison Wisconsin, where the Ohio State Buckeyes will take on the Wisconsin Badgers. This will be the first test for Ohio State.


    I think everyone would agree that Ohio State is the better team. So, I’m not going to insult your intelligence with comparing rosters or coaches. The best team however doesn’t always win. If that were true Alabama would have won last week.

    I think the running game of Wisconsin could create problems, but the Bucks defend the run well. I think the Badgers passing offense is subpar, so I don’t see them gaining an advantage there. I think Wisconsin has to find a way to out scheme the Buckeyes. If the can gain a mental edge over Ohio State they will win Saturday. Ohio State’s weakness is in between their ears. It’s been that way ever since they lost to Florida in the National Championship. The Badgers must stay two steps ahead of Ohio State. I don’t think they can do it. I have to go with Ohio State in this game, because they have the best game planner in Jim Tressel.

Ohio State wins, 33 – 17

    Good stuff. 33-17 is a ballsy prediction for my buckeyes. I think more like 24-17. We will soon find out. As for Boise being number one… that’s just crazy talk. If they played Alabama, Ohio State, or even Oregon, I’m afraid they would get beaten soundly. They are a good team, but they are still BOISE. Who have they played this year? Devry, the Pheonix Online College, and The Charles Penzone School for Hair Design. Hahahah! Go BUCKS!
    Love the blog, Shane! Read it every week! I don’t know why you say that you (may be) a writer, you make more sense than a lot of the guys i listen to on sports talk radio. You are FOR SURE a writer. Keep it up.
