Yea, Weis has done a good job of bringing some life back to the program but even though they've gotten a few uber recruits(Clausen, Young) he's just not getting enough of them.

USC looked mediocre at best, and there is no way in HELL that Booty should get the heisman trophy, he's totally overrated.

Definately. Colt Brennan is picking up where he left off. He threw for 6 touchdowns. This guy is a monster. And to think he was a walkon.

Booty is simply a beneficiary of being on such a deep and talented team that make his stats look sweet to all of the east coast journalists who don't stay up late enough to watch the games.
Look at this line:
21/32, 206 yards, 3 TD, 1 INT
Not an outstanding line by any means, but still WAY better looking than his performance was. Mostly dinky little screen passes that go for big yards. He can't throw the long ball to save his life, but his biggest flaw in my opinion is his complete lack of vision. He seems to telegraph most of his passes, and worse, he never seems to be able to see things at the line and make adjustments OR find the right guy in the right coverage. I figured since last year was his first year and he was starting to look a little better towards the end of it (other than the UCLA game, but the O-line deserve equal credit for that blowup), he could put it all together this season. No way. He simply isn't that great at all, and it will infuriate me if (or rather, when) he ends up with more heisman votes than Colt Brennan (and about 5 - 10 other more deserving QBs).
Oh well. I'm 3 - 1 on the year so far; USC was my only miss today.

I've just come to hate the massive disparity between the haves and the have nots in this game. And while it may come back to bite the Michigans once every blue moon, I find it disturbing that the system punishes a Tennessee for showing the balls to take on a tough Cal team, while rewarding the Oklahahomas and Ohio States for beating up on patsies. Yeah, I know strength of schedule is taken into account, but push comes to shove, the only thing that will matter at the end of the year is the 1 in the L column versus the 0 (with some exceptions, of course).

Cal came through for me. 2 bets this week, 2 wins. Nice start to the season.

I'm looking good, especially if Texas Tech puts a beatdown on SMU tomorrow.

Yup. This team should not be ranked #1.

Who would you consider to be more deserving? While this might be true, it is only one game. The team has excellent depth at almost every position. Their first true test will be in Nebraska in a few weeks. I will be very interested to see how they play over there.

Man, I almost wish I was still in Ann Arbor to see all the crying Wolverine fans. I hope they finally realize that Lloyd Carr ain't the right coach for that job. The Wolverines have been overrated for years, thanks in large part to underachieving quarterbacks and an iffy secondary. This was a needed wake-up call, and maybe now the alumni will realize how mediocre they've been during the Carr era before and since the 1997 championship year. If you look at the records, it's actually pretty uninspiring for a "national powerhouse."
