College ball kicks off tonight and we get to look at the LSU Tigers, #2 in the land. It will be interesting to see if QB Matt Flynn will be championship caliber like all the predictions are claiming. Not that MSU is a great team, but from what I saw last year, they play tough and don't exactly give games away to anyone. They have pulled out an occasional upset in the last few years. Hopefully, LSU isn't looking forward towards the Virginia Tech game, or they could get caught off guard.
Boise State returned tonight as well. Let's hear it Bronco fans, give your time some love. I have been talking about Boise for the last 7 years or so, and a friend of mine who happens to be an OU fan would say, " Those teams like William & Mary, Delaware State, and Boise State will never compete with the big dogs." (he's always sarcastic). Well, last years Fiesta Bowl was one of the best nights ever. I was very surprised he answered his phone when the game was over. With Weber State being the Bronco's 1st game, they will certainly start out on the right foot this year.
Iowa State's new chapter also begins. As a fan of Big 12 football, I hope new coach Gene Chizik starts his first year out on a high note. Playing Kent State, I think that he will.
Rutgers and Louisville also have games on the 30th. It will certainly be interesting to see how these teams look at the start of the season, with both of them meeting on November 29 at "the Ville", with possible BCS implications.
College ball is FINALLY HERE!!
High school ball also kicks off this weekend. Leave a comment and give your school some run. HSF is one of the best ways to spend a Friday night. I encourage you to get out there and support your school, and young athletes as they start the new season, Here in Kansas, it's pretty big. Maybe not like Texas or Ohio, but pretty big just the same. In the Wichita City league, there are some good teams that can compete with some of the best in the country. We have the #1 recruit in the country in Arthur Brown for Wichita East and his brother Bryce is the #1 junior. You'll be able to see them on ESPN in a few weeks vs. Dodge city.
Hope this weekend is great for you. Here's to FOOTBALL!!!
