Quick Thoughts On Game Week
Posted by Don Juan   
Monday, 01 September 2008
One more week till kickoff and we all are more than ready to go, but is our beloved team the same? Well be ready to go, said an eager Jimmy Clausen. I hope that sentiment is true and we come out prepared. This week should be full contact in the beginning, and shells towards the end. I think that with a more physical approach, we should be able to put a more confident, prepared and hard-working team on the field. If we come out against San Diego State and lay a couple of early eggs, it might be indicative of our future, and later games. Bon Jovi cant bail this team out with a poor start. No amount of music or fanciful- banners will be able to increase the productivity of our players.

Thank you for coming college football, no more remembering Notre Dames national nobody knows until kick if I had a guessblah, blah, blah.

One thing we know for sure, if we play like we did last year, everyone on our schedule can beat us. It doesnt matter if San Diego State has a freshman playing quarterback, or if Michigans running game was horrid, or if Michigan States defense looked penetrable, or if U-Dub lost another, and had an ill-adjusted Ty-coached second half, which cost them the game; all of this is moot when it comes down to actually performing on the field. I dont care if its McNeese State, if he doesnt block him, and he doesnt throw the ball accurately, and he doesnt run through the holes, then we wont beat anybody.

Anyone who guarantees a completely different team this year, must have drank the Lou Holtz kool-aid. Remember this, we are the same team from last year. We have the same players, give and take the freshmen class and a few attritional who left for the NFL. We have most of our coaching staff back, minus one plus Tenuta. Well have the stadium full of old-timers, who can only stand for the national anthem. And last but not least, well have those horrible TV announcers on NBC boring everybody to sleep with their meaningless color-attempt, which sounds more like a golf announcer adding his thoughts quietly during the back swing.

My point is this, college football is here, and whether were ready or not, we have to play. I hope were a completely different team from last year, and I think everybody feels the same as I. But I wouldnt put my expectations too high, as it would be a horrible fall down if our season went to crap. I, like Switzerland, will remain neutral and just ride with reality wherever it may go whatever; were going to go undefeated and win the national championship! Ill go out on a limb and drink Lous kool-aid and then some! You all know where I stand.
