6. ASU

Ms. G, normally I'd be infuriated that somebody picked against Stanford, but honestly I feel this is a major upset alert for the Cardinal. Arizona St is actually a very decent team. They should've beaten Wisconsin had it not been for poor officiating. ANd they also put up a great fight vs USC, Oregon State and Oregon.

Stanford needs to come out firing like they have the last two weeks if they want to win this game.

I wanted to say the same thing, but didn't want to annoy Ms. G any further this week. :-)

I trust that Harbaugh will not let the team come out unprepared. I agree that this game has upset written all over it. But you can see this team believing in itself more and more each week. It will be closer than the Arizona game though.

Lots of potential blowouts here.

Some possible close games:
- Auburn vs UGA
- Ohio St vs PSU
- Oklahoma vs TT
- Missouri vs KSU

Some even match-ups that could go either way:
- Arizona vs USC
- Florida vs Sarkalina
- Baylor vs TAMU

What's up Rabbit? A lot has happened in the Pac-10 since we last spoke. As usual, I have no idea what to think of at least half the conference.

Is Cal the team we saw blowout Colorado and UCLA? Or are they the mediocre team we saw USC dismantle?

Is Washington ever going to live up to their potential?

Is UCLA the team we saw beat Texas and Houston? Or the team that Stanford and Cal spanked?

Will Arizona St ever win a close game?

And if you have the time please read this blog:

Good to see ya back OM. I'll check out the blog.

-Cal (#11 sos) is schizophrenic - as usual

-UW (#1 sos) has been up and down

-UCLA (#9 sos) is improving but still has issues.

-ASU (#4 sos) is 8 pts away from being 7-2

I agree with all of that analysis. I had no idea that ASU was THAT close to being a great team.

Maybe a dumb question, but is that (# sos) thing the team's ranking for strength of schedule in the NCAA? Or am I missing something?

Nationally - according to 'teamrankings.com'.

Of course 'rankings' are always highly subjective - but this site has tons of information, and skips the preconceived notions and biases of most of the national media.

All I can say about this game is if AU goes up by 21 or more CN needs to sit. UGA has the players to hurt a running QB in a hurry.
