The AOL deal is up and running for this week. Check it out. Yes, it's long and drawn-out, but it gives you the size of the mountain that we must climb this week.
Oh yeah, just when you thought it was bad? It's worse. Charles Harris is doubtful for Saturday after someone fell on his ankle on Wednesday. O'Conner moves to tackle most likely. GREAT.
The obligatory "if you're too lazy to click" for the preview, here's the gist. We BETTER start fast, ala UCLA last year and hope that Cal comes out flat after their emotional win over the Quack Attack last week. And we better keep them under 30 points, or we can forget it. I would like our chances a lot more if we weren't so friggin' beat up (starting the excuse machine a little early maybe??), but no matter how many times I went through it, I just can't see a win this week. Cal is the real deal fellas, no other way to say it. Their streak of 40+ points per game will end this week, but that's about the only thing that will be suspenseful. At least I'll get to see the game live (thanks Rooster!).
My Football Friday picks:
CAL 37, WSU 24 - They are just overwhelming
OSU 19, UW 17 - shocker upset of the week, but I don't think UW is over the USC loss. Trap game written all over it.
Oregon 33, UCLA 16 - Ducks strike back, UCLA is overrated.
USC 30, ASU 17 - The USS Koetter continues to sink
AZ 11, Stanford 9 - YUCK
Nice job Tad of getting in the Go-2-Guy's column today, in regards to Jim Moore saying UW is better than WSU right now:
From Tad Richardson: "How 'bout a big dose of 'Get the (bleep) outta here' and (get the) Cougar pride back. Is it April 1st? You're better than that, Jimbo."
Finally, a funny Youtube about the worst metal band ever:
