Important win for Nebraska. A loss in a "should win" to start conference play would have been bad. Defense hopefully gains some momentum. Mobile QBs give them fits, though, so might need a lot of offense in Columbus next week. GBR!

SoCal's Top 10 (actually 15) after this week's games

1. Alabama- Another impressive win against a solid SEC opponent. Watch out for Amari Cooper (sucks we couldn't keep him in our own backyard).
2. Oregon- They move up one slot from # 3 last week in my rankings to # 2. Did a good job dismantling WSU in the second half after a sluggish start.
2. Florida State- Florida State drops from # 2 to # 3 in my poll due to a very mediocre 30-17 win at South Florida. They didn't look great defensively in this game and weren't completely dominant on offense, either. I expected a little more from the Noles against this opponent, despite BJ Daniels being a very experienced QB. They are still far and away the class of the ACC.
4. Kansas State- Had a bye this week. They are a really good team, very well coached and are definitely Top 5 caliber.
5. Georgia- Impressed mightily with their offense. Defense? Not so much.
6. South Carolina- Started very slow against Kentucky but really turned it on in the second half in Lexington. I still have doubts about this offenese.
7. Florida- Bye week. This is a little higher than where they are in the polls, but they have showed alot of heart this season, esp on the road in tough environments. Muschamp's defense has been very good in the second half of games all year.
8. Ohio State- By a razor thin margin, they escaped in East Lansing. Nonetheless, its impressive that they went into the house of a very good Big 10 opponent and pulled out a win.
9. Texas-Impressive road win at Oklahoma State in a barnburner for the Longhorns. I thought they'd lose this game, but they came through.
10. West Virginia- They actually dropped a few spots in my rankings this week despite their 70-63 win over Baylor. Yes, Dana Holgerson's hybrid combination of the Air Raid Offense with Zone Read principles is sick, but you can't give up 63 points to a team barely in the Top 25 (at home, nonetheless) and expect to be ranked high in the Top 10.

Knocking on the door:
11. Oregon State- Another big win at Arizona, they are right there and very deserving, I put them at No. 11.
12. Notre Dame- Great defense and no offense...but I expect them to score close to 40 this week.
13. LSU - They were actually well inside my Top 10 last week, but they played very poorly against nobody Towson on the heels of playing poorly against Auburn and just barely winning that game, not impressed at all so far.
14. Stanford- Played well defensively for 3 quarters, sucked the big one in the 4th. Have them just slightly ahead of USC due to head to head competition factor.
15. USC- Interesting to see if Barkley can return to form at Utah on Thursday night. This is a good, but not great team. They cannot afford any more injuries due to lack of depth.

Any thoughts on Shawn Eichorst, SoCal?

http://espn.go.com/college-sports/st...esigns-sources

Quote:
Shawn Eichorst has resigned as Miami's athletic director and is expected to replace Tom Osborne as Nebraska's athletic director, sources told ESPN.

Last month, Osborne announced he would retire from Nebraska on Jan. 1.

Eichorst arrived at Miami in April 2011 with the school's athletic department in flux after spending the previous six years at Wisconsin, including the last three as deputy athletic director under Wisconsin AD Barry Alvarez.
Alvarez connection makes sense for why Osborne would be looking at him.

Dorial Green-Beckham and two other guys got arrested for smoking dope in a Lincoln Navigater that was sitting in Lot G outside Faurot Field. One game suspensions.

He has been very low profile at Miami. I heard he also had a falling out with the university President.

I expect this to eventually generate into a blowout win for USC because Utah stinks on offense this year, but Star Lutelelei is definitely the real deal. Reminds me of Haloti Ngata. That said I hope Utah proves me wrong and beats the Trojans.

USC pulled away from Utah after a slow start and won, 38-28, although they still don't look anything like the worldbeater they were made out to be. USC has the look of a 9-3 team.

SoCal's Pick for this weekends games

#2 Oregon 36, # 23 Washington 20
#3 Florida State 36, NC State 24
#10 Florida 20, # 4 LSU 13
#5 Georgia 24, # 6 South Carolina 17
#7 Kansas State 38, Kansas 16
Miami vs. #9 Notre Dame in Chicago, IL (See below)
#11 Texas 38, #8 West Virginia 35
#12 Ohio State 24, # 21 Nebraska 19
#15 TCU 27, Iowa State 14
# 15 Clemson 38, Georgia Tech 27
# 17 Oklahoma 27, Texas Tech 24
#18 Stanford 23, Arizona 20
# 20 Miss. State 26, Kentucky 20
# 22 Rutgers 31, UConn 17
Penn State 23, # 24 Northwestern 21
California 24, # 25 UCLA 23

Miami Game

Miami at # 9 Notre Dame in Chicago, IL

A matchup of a high scoring but streaky offense against a great defense, with a bad offense playing against an even worse defense. Miami is faster than anyone ND has seen this year. But like most games, this game will be decided in the trenches. Notre Dame's offensive line outweighs Miami's DL by almsot 30 pounds per man and Miami's defensive line rotation is made up of largely underclassmen, with only one good player in the bunch (Chickillo). The Canes have been awful vs. the run and have not put much pressure on the passer. I think Notre Dame RB Cierre Wood will have a big day, although Miami returns its best LB in sophomore Denzel Perryman from injury. Miami's offensive line is a good one, but I think ND's front seven is even better and we'll struggle to run the ball consistently against them. Stephen Morris is the ultimate Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde QB. Last week he threw for 566 yards.......and thats while playing boneheaded football for almost the entire 2nd and 3rd quarters. He can't afford to keep that up, or else he'll be picked off...repeatedly, by this defense. Miami freshman RB Duke Johnson and sophomore sensation WR Philip Dorsett will have some big plays, but I think ND will generally control the play. There's too much experience and depth there, even though their offense has struggled all year long. They won't struggle against a defense like this.

#9 Notre Dame 33, Miami 17

Ohio State third-string quarterback Cardale Jones made his feelings about attending classes clear Friday on Twitter.

"Why should we have to go to class if we came here to play FOOTBALL, we ain't come to play SCHOOL classes are POINTLESS," he wrote.

Michigan better come out and play some solid football tomorrow.

They play Purdue on the road and coming off their bye week.

If Denard starts passing out INTs like they were Halloween candy, like he did against Notre Dame, Michigan will be playing from behind all game again.

That said, Michigan should play well with 2 weeks to prepare and stew over the Notre Dame loss.

Michigan 27

Purdue 24

Michigan State rallied to beat Indiana 31-27.

Penn State beat #24 Northwestern 39-28.

I thought Northwestern would beat Penn State.

Michigan and Purdue kick off soon.

A little short, but Matt Elam is going to make a very, very good safety in the NFL one day.
