Thursday night Thunder
Like I said, I'm loving the idea of 5 things a day...

1. Ducks vs. Beavers for the Rose Bowl

The Civil War, as they call it, is for all the Pac-10 marbles this year. It's always a fun game to watch anyway, but this year is going to be ridiculous. Lots of fun skill players in this one. I expect a ping pong match of epic proportions. Total score probably in the 80 or 90s.

Rivalry games always tend to stick with players for the rest of their lives, but could you imagine having to be on the losing side of this one? Your school's first shot at a Rose Bowl in forever? Wow. Big time stuff goin on here.

2. Hey, Willie Martinez. Holla!

Georgia has let go of Martinez and 2 other defensive assistants. According to the message boards, they're really wanting Kirby Smart. Of course, we're also hearing the Florida State would like his services as well. After Steele made the move last year, I guess anything's possible, especially since Smart is a UGA grad.

3. Dennis Dodd talks about finishing...

Dodd, from, has a great article up about the Tide finishing the 4th quarter this year. It's a really good read.

Of course, he talks about that, and then predicts Florida to win 21-20. Haha.

4. Conference championship games

Is this the first year that all of the BCS conferences, aside from the Big 10, have had, basically, a championship game on the same weekend?

ACC has Ga Tech vs Clemson, SEC has Alabama vs Florida, Big 12 has Texas vs Nebraska, Big East has Pitt vs Cinci, and Pac 10 has Oregon vs Oregon St. Pretty badass, right?

5. Phil Steele picks Florida. Cool.

Phil Steele has picked Florida to win 23-16. Not sure where his rankings, etc, come from, but I enjoy the role of the underdog. Now let's hope everybody else, including Florida, thinks that too.
