Kortney Shane’s College Football Preview: Week 10


Why Isn't This Game On National T.V.?

Let’s begin…

    There is plenty to talk about this week in college football. The BCS picture is taking shape, Cam Newton gets closer to Heisman, and Oregon has staked their claim as the Alpha Dog of the Pac-10. I’m going start with Boise State, because they’re crawled up in the fetal position, asking why everyone is picking on them. I have changed my stance on the Boise State issue. In previous weeks, I thought they were being jumped in the polls because of their competition. However, they’ve been jumped in the BCS poll this week by TCU. Armed with that information, I’ve come to the conclusion that Boise State is preserved as being not good. I DO NOT AGREE. Let me refresh everyone’s memory. There’s one team that beat both TCU and Oregon last year. That’s Boise State. If you think a miracle happened in the offseason, and somehow there now better than Boise State. You are wrong. For a team to be good, you must win all the games you’re expected to win and some of the games you’re not supposed to win. Neither Oregon nor TCU has done that…The Boise State Broncos do it every year. Everyone is falling in love with Oregon and their offense, but that defense is putrid at best. Sooner or later that offense will stall and a team will hang 40 on them. If you think Oregon is unbeatable, I have some 2010 Rose Bowl tapes I want you to check out.

I heard a question on ESPN Radio this week. They asked if you had to pick a college football program, would you want to be Miami, Notre Dame, or Michigan. If you forced me to pick I would take Miami because of their location, but I don’t want any of those teams. The fan bases of those teams don’t understand that their identity has changed in college football. They now need to change their approach in order to be successful. Notre Dame has to run an offense that will work for the personal they can recruit (which they are), Michigan has to commit to an identity (by the way Wolverines fans, how would you like to have Lloyd Carr?), and Miami, “If you want to be big time, act like you’re big time. Upgrade that dump of a facility, and quit trying to sell that 1980’s we’re “The U” facade. This may be a news flash, but Jimmy Johnson ain’t coming through that door.”

Cameron Newton is a great college football player, and he could end up being a very good NFL player. I am thoroughly impressed with his play, and I think he has the inside track on winning the Heisman Trophy (now allow me to dismiss the rest of his season). Auburn is not going to the National Championship. In 2 weeks they will lose to Alabama by double digits.

The game of the week is TCU v. Utah

Breakdown

    I really like this game. You match two undefeated teams against each other that get no national respect. However, whichever team wins this game will at least be the 3rd ranked team in the Nation. I actually think the BCS polls will have them ranked at number 2. TCU has a defense that will be up to the challenge of stopping Jordan Wynn and the Utah Utes. Along with their defense TCU has a senior quarterback in Andy Dalton that can get the job done. Utah has home field advantage (which is probably the only advantage they have). TCU has never beat Utah in Salt Lake City. With that being said, I have TCU winning this game. They’re just better than Utah this year. I can’t wait to watch the game. Too bad I won’t be able to watch the game. This game is not on national TV, despite both of these teams being undefeated and ranked in the top 5 (please see the first three sentence of this paragraph if you need to know why this is). However, that’s not going to stop me from predicting a score.

    TCU wins, 35 – 21

Kortney Shane’s College Football Preview: Week 6


Michigan State Will Go Into The Big House, But Will They Will?

Let’s begin…

    Raise your hand if you’re pissed off about Boise State dropping to #4 in the polls. Now keep your hand up if you’re surprised. This is the way the BCS works. The same system that gives Boise State hope of playing in National Championship must also reward Oregon for looking like a more impressive team. I’m not going to rant on this topic, because the BCS has already written Boise State a letter (see here).

    I was impressed with Oregon this weekend as was everyone else. Them boys can score my friend. I think if a team wants to beat them, they must make them throw the ball. That quarterback has a raggedy arm, and you must make him use it. If you don’t, get used to seeing the back of LaMichael James‘ jersey.

    The whole Denard Robinson spectacle has reached a frenzied level. Everyone has given this guy the Heisman after 5 games. Will he win it…I don’t know. I do know that he hasn’t played a good team yet, and Michigan‘s schedule picks up this week. Michigan State will be coming to town, and the Wolverines will be tested.

Breakdown

    Denard Robinson is the most captivating college football player since Reggie Bush. Dude can flat out play my friend. This week the Michigan Wolverines will be matching up with the Michigan State Spartans. The Spartans are a good team that dominated Wisconsin last week. Their defense made John Clay look average. So, I think their defense can at least compete with Robinson. At the same time…that’s Denard Robinson. The Michigan Wolverines have home field advantage, and the previously mentioned Robison. That’s it! I’m not buying into the hype. Michigan isn’t a good football team. You may say, “Kortney their 5-0.” Well last year they were 4-0, and then they played Michigan State. So I think the Spartan will go into the BIG House, and beat the Wolverines.

Michigan State wins, 30 – 24

“Boise State, Welcome To The BCS”


Let’s begin…

Boise State Is Now Ranked Fourth In The Nation. Could This Be The Beginning Of Their Free Fall?

Dear Boise State,

We regret to inform you that through no fault of your own you will be downgraded from the third to the fourth ranked team in the nation. It’s not something we wanted to do, but our hand was forced. I wish we would have been able to warn you, but you should have seen it coming. You knew you were playing in a terrible conference. So, it was only a matter a time before a team with a better schedule leaped over you in the rankings. By now you know that team is the Oregon. Now we don’t know if they’re better than you, but we have to use or best guess. And for now they’re better than you.

It’s a long season so things change. Our only advice is to win all your games, and hope the teams above you lose. I know the system is flawed, but it’s the way we make the most money. Please send our reguard to the groin we kicked you in.

Ps. we will have a spot waiting for you in the Fiesta bowl…if you win all your games.

Sincerely Yours

The BCS
