There are some big name matchups, but one team or the other (or both) are underperforming, so the matchup loses some of its shine.  UCLA - Texas is a good example.  Purdue - Notre Dame is another.   
A game that got swept under the rug last wknd was UCLA/Memphis.That game was almost a huge embarassment for the boys from LA.
Hope Mora catching heck out there. Is he Tro? Or is he teflon coated like Dad was?

Given Florida's track record the last couple of years, UK - UF might very well turn into a good game.  It's just not set up to be.

I actually think Fresno State is going to give the Cornhuskers a run for their money.

That's daring niner. Fresno ifs complete trash. However it is the big ten and everyone knows they are complete garbage, so you may be onto something.

I don't have a clue in the world what kind of team Fresno is. The only reason I'm guessing that is kickoff is slated for 9:30 p.m. Cornhusker time.  That means halftime will be approaching midnight.  Strange things can happen.

Ah. Makes sense. Fresno is terrible though. What little defense they had last year is gone and their offense graduated as well. That's why I thought you made a ballsy prediction.

You live in Cincinnati?  I was down there a month ago.  Took in a Reds game.  I also very much enjoyed the Moerlein Lager House.

Technically, I live across the river in KY but it's just easier to say Cincy. I very much enjoy Moerlein... of course, any place that serves a ton of beer will likely have me there ber

Small world. My wife applied for a job there before she moved down from Columbus. She's now an adjuster so it all worked out.

Good for her.  Here in Charlotte they layed off almost everyone...the place is a mess and has a long way to go to compete with B of A and Wells Fargo who dominate the landscape here.

I caught those ones from shore. I want to take a float tube to that lake. That would be some incredible fishing.

For any who might be interested. There is a high school game on right now between Concorde De La Salle (CA) and Byrnes High School (S.C.).

De La Salle is the team that the movie When The Game Stands Tall is about.
