Baylor (4-2) at Colorado (3-2)...6:00pm Saturday on Fox College Sports
-If the Bears are going to finally end their 16-year bowl drought, they'll need to get W's #5 and #6 soon, because the tail end of their schedule gets pretty hairy. One of the most winnable games remaining is this weekend in Boulder. The big questions I have going into this game are: 1) Will Baylor have ANOTHER embarrassing off the field/court issue before this game is played? And 2) Colorado already stormed the field after beating a 1-4 team, so will they storm the field if they beat Baylor?
Other Big Games:
Air Force (5-1) at San Diego State (3-2)...7:00pm Saturday on CBS-College Sports
-As much as I've been a little bit 'rah-rah' for the Aztecs so far this year (and for good reason- the MWC needs the traditional doormats to rise up and play some good football), this would absolutely be the wrong time for Air Force to be upset. They need to be ranked as high as possible for their trip to Fort Worth next weekend.
Utah (5-0) at Wyoming (2-4)...5:00pm Saturday on The Mtn
-Doo Doo Brown has played whipping boy so far this year, already having lost to TCU (by 45), Boise (also by 45), Texas (by 27) and Air Force (by 6). This weekend, the #11 Utes get their turn at splashing around in the brown & yellow when they visit Laramie.
SMU (4-2) at Navy (3-2)...2:30pm Saturday on CBS-College Sports
-After starting conference play 3-0 for the first time since 1986, the Ponies take a trip east for their last non-league game of the season against the Midshipmen in Annapolis. This will be a test of SMU's run defense for sure, but a win would put them at 5-2 and would give a TCU victim a little of that valuable East Coast exposure.
Oregon State (3-2) at Washington (2-3)...9:15pm Saturday on ESPN
-The Beavers are undefeated in Pac 10 play right now, putting them in control of their own destiny for a possible conference championship, and their win in Tucson last weekend put them back in the Top 25. But they were dealt a blow when they lost Texan receiver James Rodgers for the year with a knee injury. Their first test without him is a trip to Seattle to face incredibly overrated QB Jake Locker.
UNLV (1-5) at Colorado State (1-5)...1:00pm Saturday on The Mtn
-I guess the good news here is, someone's got to win. The bad news is, one of these teams will be an ugly 1-6 by Sunday. I think that once freshman QB Pete Thomas finds some kind of rhythm on offense, the Rams could actually have a pulse. So I'll go with them.
Tennesee Tech (2-4) vs. Eastern Illinois (0-6)...7:00pm Saturday
-You're probably asking yourself, "Eastern Illinois? Isn't that where Romo went?" Yes, it is, which explains why they suck at footbaw.
New Mexico (0-6) is mercifully off this week. But if there's any team out there that could possibly lose to air, it might be them.
This has been the toughest addition of Player to Watch to date. Not necessarily because they have a bunch of weapons, or because they are so versatile. They don’t, and they are not. The reason is because when I peruse the opposing rosters for names, stats, etc that stand out, there are usually only a handful of guys, like around 4 or 5 to choose from. BYU is a completely different story. First of all, it is the whitest combination of college football names you will EVER find. It makes the
Players to Watch: ZEKE, ZED, and ZANE Mendenhall
A couple things should stand out here. First of all, the names Zeke, Zed and Zane remind me of the Weird Al Yankovic song “Amish Paradise”. Second- the name Mendenhall. Unfortunately, they are not Bronco’s kids, however, I am not ruling out that they could be relatives, and neither should you. We all know the tendency for Mormon incest, so let’s assume that they are related to Bronco is some Deliverance, ass-backwards type way, and that is the only reason they are on the team.
Zeke- Brainwashing Mexicans since 2006.
Zeke is a 5’11, 212 lb. senior defensive back with only 4 tackles and a forced fumble on the year. He wears #30. His dad’s name is Buck, so I could see possibly that Bronco’s parents were complete redneck idiots and named their kids Buck and Bronco. Get it? He did mission work in Mexico, meaning he wore a fucking backpack and peddled his Schwinn from door to door asking poor Mexicans for their money in Spanish for a couple of years.
Zed- Rounding up Brazilian Mormons via horseback since 2007.
Zed, what the fuck kind of name is Zed, is a 5’11, 239 lb. sophomore RB, younger brother of Zeke, and son of Buck. Zed has 1 carry for 2 yards this year. He sucks, so he should be glued to the bench and in close heckling range. He wears #35. Zed went on his Mormon mission to
No Photo Available for Zane, so I went with this one of Billy Zane. Zane is currently MIA in El Salvador.
Zane, the youngest and crappiest Mendenall brother, is a freshman RB who is 5’9 190 and sucks harder than the rest of them. These guys are clearly a part of this team because their dad shares a wife with Bronco, or something flawed and twisted like that. He’s #47 and clearly doesn’t play, and I can’t find any mention of his mission work, so he’s either a terrible Mormon or so unimportant that they don’t bother to tout his propaganda spreading. Actually, as I read further into their website it says that he is current serving his mission work in El Salvador, so let’s make sure to let Zed and Zeke know that Zane has been captured in a coup by Juntas in El Salvador and the likelihood of him returning is on par with that of Natalie Holloway.
Real Player to Watch- Jake Heaps (QB, Fr. 6’1, 194- alleged cocky douchebag)
Piece of advice, Jake: Invisalign.
Heaps is about as highly touted a prospect to ever set foot in Mormon Country. He was the #1 QB in the nation last year and is ugly as shit. He has wolverine teeth like no other college athlete in the country. Seriously kid, BRACES! Anyways, he chose BYU over just about any school he wanted, so either he’s uber-Mormon or just a total moron. He’s experiencing growing pains this year that make Garrett Gilbert look like a poised veteran, as he has only thrown for 885 yards with 1 TD and 4 INTS. Great ratio, Jake. Keep up the good work. Also, rumors of him being a cocky shit and all around punk are running rampant through the BYU blogosphere, and just about anywhere else you read. I cant find anything concrete, but apparently after losing to
