TomAz who do you root for?
TomAz who do you root for?
well in theory I root for my alma mater. Well, in practice, too, though it's hard because they are one of the worst teams in 1-A and are never on TV and play in a shitty conference. (Rice, C-USA).
Other than that I guess I root for ASU and whoever is playing Texas A&M that week.
baseball.. we were in the CWS again this year.
THE University of Southern California...
What are your thoughts on Sanchez at QB?
Will he hold off Mustain & be the starter?
Mustain has supposedly impressed a lot of people in
the program since he transferred from Arkansas.
Cannot wait to see what Joe McKnight does this year.
He is a legit Heisman hopeful!
RICH RODRIGUEZ IS A TOOL!
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - Former West Virginia University football coach Rich Rodriguez and the University of Michigan have agreed to pay a $4 million buyout and settle a lawsuit that WVU filed after he broke his contract in December.
Rodriguez will pay $1.5 million in three annual payments beginning January 2010. The Wolverines athletic department, his new employer, will pay $2.5 million by the end of July and cover Rodriguez's legal fees, the University of Michigan said in a statement Wednesday
I would give McKnight one more year before saying he's Heisman worthy. I think he stays for his Junior year and then bolts for the NFL. I would like to see Marc Tyler and Stafon Johnson's progress. The money is going to be made on the defensive side.
I sure hope McKnight has his academic issues cleared up.
His quickness is so impressive.
Our defense looks good! DE Everson Griffin was a stud in high school here in AZ. He made some impact as a true freshman last year. I look for him to be dominant this year.
Are you going to the Ohio State game? I would like to. But I have a feeling it may be cost prohibitive.
Probably will hit a game in LA at some point too.
My buddies are paying scalpers for the OSU game & want me to also.
I think I will watch on TV rather than pay hundreds for a nosebleed seat.
As for the U of A-ASU rivalry, it may be bad at games, but I honestly haven't seen much animosity in real world Arizona. I have many friends who have the schools, and it doesn't get much further than friendly "ASU is going to dominate U of A" type stuff. USC and UCLA seems to spill out in random places.
For your health
But these two schools (and cities) hate each other!
It gets pretty bad. In basketball too.
I hear it on local sports radio all the time.
So bad that when Steve Kerr played for U of A the ASU fans chanted PLO, PLO....because Steve's dad was assassinated by the PLO in Beirut. He was some kind of Ambassador.
Steve was seen crying in the shootaround...
How classless is that?
Tucson is the butt of many in-state jokes.
Similar to Bakersfield when I was growing up there in CA.
I have been to plenty SC-UCLA games over the years & you are right.
That gets ugly. Downright hateful.
I love that shirt that SC kids wear...

Ooh...this year ND comes to town! That's a game I need to get tickets for! It could be the final step to making it to the BCS Championship!!!
Enough of this USC crap. Let's talk about the SEC.
Can't spell the SEC without the SC...lol.
The SEC can eat a di#k for all I care, but since this is a discussion about NCAA football, I'll say my piece.
I'm not completely sold on Georgia being the team to beat out of the SEC. I do see Tebow and the Gators being the pivotal match-up for Knowshon Moreno & Co. to overcome. How will the Bulldogs pull together after Uga VI passed away recently? I don't see LSU winning the SEC West because they've lost Perriloux and a host of defenders from that defense. With that being said, you cannot count out them and look for an improvement for Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide this year. Also, can Petrino bring his style of play down to Arkansas and change a once running game based offense to his spread option/fast break O?
My darkhorse pic for the SEC is...the other USC...the Gamecocks of South Carolina.
