College Football Recap

TCU Horned Frogs

With only a few more weeks left in the regular season, College football is certainly spicing up.  And once again this past weekend was a wild affair with lots of story lines.  We spotlighted the TCU, Utah game on Friday, and well it wasn’t much of a game (55-28). TCU racked up nearly 550 years in the slaughter of Utah.  Ed Wesley ran for 137 yards and a touchdown. The game was basically over at halftime with TCU up 38-14.  TCU kept their BCS hopes alive but didn’t climb any in the polls, staying behind Florida, Alabama, and Texas. If the Horned Frogs want a chance to play in the championship game, they will need to get a large amount of help.  TCU needed a game with style points and they certainly got that, maybe not as much style as oh I dare say, Fergie, but they got some.  And as for their uniforms, they really weren’t as bad looking as we all thought.  They weren’t intimidating like the Oregon all blacks were, but just TCU’s team in general was intimidating scoring on offense at will, blocking punts, and getting touchdowns on defense.  And the biggest crowd ever at Amon Carter Stadium got quite the show.

The other game we talked about turned out to be a pretty good game itself.  Ohio St. needed a field goal in overtime to beat Iowa 27-24 and advance to the Rose Bowl. Devin Barclay, who was a former pro soccer player, made a 39 yard field goal to give the Buckeyes their first trip to Pasadena in 13 years.  Iowa came back from a 24-10 ten deficit to push the game to overtime, but couldn’t score in extra time.  Iowa freshman quarterback ended up throwing three interceptions.  I guess those Ohio St. fans were right by wanting Tressel out of there, especially after winning the Big Ten title again and going to a BCS game again.

My biggest surprise of the weekend was the Stanford win over USC at home.  If USC’s loss to Oregon was bad, this was worse lossing 55-21.  The Stanford Cardinal gave Pete Carroll his first loss ever in the month on November.  Stanford ran on the back of Toby Gerhart who rushed for 178 yards and scored three touchdowns.  Gerhart who is 3rd in the nation in rushing yards, and 2nd in the nation in rushing touchdowns should most likely start getting a look at winning the heisman.

With our Friday Picks, most of the games were easy to decided, everyone picked mostly the same teams except me who picked Stanford to win, making me a genius, and winning this week’s Friday Picks, picking 11 out of 13. If you want to be apart of next weeks Friday picks as one of our guests, then submit funny youtube videos, drop some comments or give us some feed back at our email
