Week Three Review of Big Campus All-American Activities

Posted: Updated:

The Unabashed Blogorrhea stirring and shaking through the latest big campus All-American activities while always recommending Full Sail Amber for quality liquid refreshment.

Three athletic-student Saturdays into the season and so far ...

So little is actually known about so many thanks to the coast-to-coast cowardly scheduling.

But what we do know about Johnny Manziel and Davis Ash is encouraging.  About Garrett Gilbert, not so much.  Likely never really going to happen.

We know Kliff Kingsbury is the next super-sized mad offensive scientist soon-to-be head honcho.

We know Seth Doege can slice and dice the under-privileged.  But we pretty much already knew that.  

What we know about Dana and Geno, about "Bama and LSU, is what we expected, for the good.  About UH, that it's so bad it's bringing back the dreaded dark dead days of Dana Dimel.

What we know about Notre Dame's defense is not about hype, for a change.  Really.  About USC, not living up to the luster and it's only mid-September.

What we know that Arkansas and Colorado is they have cratered.  It can't get worse.  Hmmmm.  It John L. still in place?  And it is Colorado.  It can get worse. Seriously, Colorado is one of the absolute worst on record anywhere.

What we know about the alleged supposed BIG 10 is that they are minuscule and effectively eliminated from the BCS race.  Right now.  Check the calendar.

We know that Louisville can't help but go undefeated.  And we know if won't matter a bit in the BCS race.

We know a group of Ducks have more speed than Jamaica.

We know that the upcoming Bayou Bucket bash should really only serve as a consolation derby for city supremacy.  Simply a prelim for the main match of UCLA vs. Louisiana Tech, a twosome with a collective and convincing 4-0 against the Cougars and Owls.  Tech rocking for 56 points and then, well, 56 with more than 1,200 total yards.  And UCLA rolling for 49 points and then 37 with more than 1,200 total yards.  Alas, bragging rights will belong to whomever leaves Reliant a winner, and we all can then determine the quality of such.

And now The Unabashed with the Eyes Don't Lie weekly rank.  A rank, not a forecast.  Based on startling newly crafted deep analytic algorithms ... actually the measure is, get this, who beats whom, when and especially where, and by how much.  Right, a concept which will never draw traction.

BIG 12

1.  Texas (3-0):  Can Ash even approach what ripped through the Rebels against someone good?  So much everywhere else around him.

2.  Kansas St. (3-0):  Blowing out the Hurricane remains best win from the rest so far.  Now the test.

3.  Iowa St. (3-0):  Week off before here comes Tech with shot at 4-0.

4.  West Virginia (2-0):  Two more home routs upcoming before the collision in Austin.

5.  Oklahoma (2-0):  K-State comes calling.  On FOX.

6.  TCU (2-0):  Only four fumbles keeps it close at Kansas.  Two-touchdown take-down on road for 1st-ever Big 12 win.

7.  Texas Tech (3-0):  Week off before visit to Iowa St. for shot at 4-0.

8.  Baylor (3-0):  Credit the Bearkats for not backing down but Bears can't be backed into comeback at home against one-time 1-AA crowd.

9.  Oklahoma St. (2-1):  Heavyweight at home against repeated lightweights.

10.  Kansas (1-2):  Where's that Decided Schematic Advantage again?


1.  Alabama (3-0):
  Class of the college crowd.  Could have hung 70 on the Hogs in the hills.

2.  LSU (3-0):  Anyone new suspended this week?  Anyone else ineligible?  Anyone?

3.  Florida (3-0):  555 total yards, 24-stragiht points, eighth straight win over Vols, two straight road wins to start the SEC set.

4.  Georgia (3-0): 
Never has school-record 716 yards ever meant so little?

5.  South Carolina (3-0):
  QB status may be shaky, team is not.

6.  Mississippi St. (3-0):  Could be 7-0 banging for 'Bama in late October.  Seriously.  Look at the schedule.

7.  Mizzou (2-1):  Survived a slopfest with a backup qb.  Bonus ranking for two goal-line stands in final minutes which send terrible Todd Graham into famed crazy-man mode.

8.  Tennessee (2-1):  Dooley Factor in play sooner rather than later.  In control of Gators in front of 100,000+ at home and over the final 18:00 outgained 305-35 and outscored 24-0.  Rocky bottom.

9.  Texas A&M (1-1):  Under no circumstance, none whatsoever, should South Carolina St. be visiting Kyle Field.  None.  Zero.  Embarrassing.

10.  Auburn (1-2):  Managed overtime with Louisiana-Monroe for first win.  That counts, right?

11.  Ole Miss (2-1):  Best least-deserving home-turf setting anywhere.

12.  Vanderbilt (0-2):  Could finish with a five-game win streak to close the season.  Seriously.  Look at the schedule.  Maybe six.

13.  Arkansas (1-2):  Couldn't manage overtime with Louisiana-Monroe for first loss.  And then quit, just quit at home, in front of national audience, just like the quarterback said.

14.  Kentucky (1-2):  The Joker is hardly wild.  Coach Tuberville, can we put you on hold?  Bobby Petrino now on line two.
