The Iron Man in football is back!

Here is a video of Stanford FB/LB Owen Marecic scoring on both sides of the ball, but perhaps the craziest part of it all is that it all happened in a span of 13 seconds!

Rudy's Top 5 Heisman candidates Week 4

Every week for the rest of the college football season I am going to try and post what I think are the top 5 Heisman Candidates and brief description of why I rated that player where he is.

1. Kellen Moore QB Boise State- Passed for 370 yards and 2 TD's against Wyoming in a 51-6 blowout. This will be a big week for Boise State and Kellen Moore if they wish to stay in the national spotlight as they play #24 Oregon State in a nationallly televised game Saturday night.
2.Andrew Luck QB Stanford- Already has 10 TD passes on the season with 674 yards passing and 140 yards rushing on the year. Should put up some more big numbers this week against Notre Dame.
3. Denard Robinson QB Michigan- I refuse to put him any higher on my list until Michigan plays a quality opponent. I'm sorry but Notre Dame, UMass, and UConn aren't exactly staggering defences. We'll see how the qb plays against some of the tougher Big 10 defences.
4. Terrelle Pryor QB Ohio State- Hasn't really put up any staggering numbers yet this year does have 6 TD's but he threw 2 ints against a weak Ohio team this past Saturday. If Ohio State keeps winning he will remain in the top 5.
5 John Clay RB Wisconsin- I am going show a little bias here but John Clay is the main reason why Wisconsin is 3-0 right now. He hasn't had as many carries this year but this is due to the Wisconsin coaching staff wanting to keep him fresh throughout the season. Should have another 100 yard running game this week.

AP College Football poll

Last weeks show both Goody and I believed that whoever won the Notre Dame/Michigan game would be ranked although we both agreed they probably wouldn't deserve it just yet. Michigan won the game on a last minute TD 28-24 and low and behold they are ranked 20th in the latest edition of the AP poll. I do not believe when a progam has won a combined 11 games in the past 3 seasons including the first 2 games of this season that they deserved to be ranked so early in the season even if it is Michigan. Take a look at Virgina Tech for example, starting the season at #10 and with Saturday's embarrassing lost to James Madison they fell completely out the of the top 25 and in my opinion should be back in anytime soon.

A few other highlights from the polls, Alabama and Ohio State remain 1 and 2 in the poll and actually pick up more votes and distance themselves from #3 Boise State. Florida fell again to #10 this week after struggling once again this week to South Florida. The ACC which had 5 teams in the Preseason Poll now only have one, Miami which is now ranked #17. Virgina Tech, Georgia Tech, and Florida State all dropped out with losses this weekend.

FIBA World Championships

One thing I wanted to mention on last nights show was the USA world team and the FIBA World Championships. Today the US beat Russia 89-79 to advance to the Semifinals to play Lithuania. Even though The US has done well in the Olympic games they tend to struggle in this tournament and haven't won since 1994. Looks like this year could end that drought as Coach "K" has revamped how the US world team goes about there business in these Championships.

A Lesson Should Be Learned

I just got done watching the Boise St. and Virginia Tech battle tonight, and after I caught my breath for some reason I could only think of one thing....The NFL should learn a lesson from NCAA Football. With the season being on the line for both teams, escpecially for Boise State who has National Championship game hopes, it seems realy crazy that it was the first week of college football and not a bowl game. This is what is so great about college football, every teams season is on the line EVERY WEEK! With each team playing 12 regular season games it makes it very easy for college teams to feel pressure if they get even one loss. Which brings me to my main point, with the NFL wanting to go to 18 regular season games will only water down the sport in the long run. I mean come on like Rudy has said in the program before, people are already complaining when they see more of Curtis Painter under center weeks 16 and 17 rather than legendary QB Peyton Manning. I don't want to rant on this point to long but the NFL wants to unsure fans get their dollars worth by seeing starters every week of the regular season but yet want to add two more games which would more than likely make the situation worse. If they want to make the game of NFL football got back to a 14 game schedule. But the best words I heard on this situation was with a conversation with Goody Sr.....his comments are simply put: If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

First post and first upset of the College Football Season!!

Hello everyone this is the BCSpert making his first official post on the blog of ST920.

Utah beats #15 Pittsburgh which is college football's first official upset of the season. After Pittsburgh rallied from 14 points down in the 4th qtr to put the game in overtime Utah freshman Brian Blechen intercepted a pass on the first play from scrimmage in overtime. This set up a field goal which sealed the game for Utah. I do have to say I am a little bit of a Pitt fan due to the fact that I have always been a dave wanstedt fan and hope he can get it going this year in Pitt.
