Frank's Forecast #9
November 13, 2010 - Mike Frank
Back to football!
It's been a couple weeks as Ohio State took a break, and so did I. High school is off the map, as the local teams have seen their seasons come to an end.
In the college ranks, there are three undefeateds still standing. Barring a massive meltdown, we're looking at Oregon and Auburn in Glendale for the title game. Auburn has Georgia this week, then the Iron Bowl and the SEC championship against either Florida or South Carolina. The Ducks have Cal, Arizona and the "Civil War" with Oregon State.
TCU has two games left, and Boise State (which won Friday night) has three. WHAT-ever.
In the NFL ranks, Oakland, Kansas City, and even Cleveland are kicking up quite a fuss lately. Welcome to the 80s, baby!
HEEEERE WE GO:
Penn State (6-3) at #8 Ohio State (8-1) — GameDay will be in town. This has turned into a good back and forth rivalry. PSU got win 400 for JoePa, so the Bucks don't have to deal with that. They'll chase PSU all over the 'Shoe — OHIO STATE
#1 Oregon (9-0) at California (5-4) — Cal is undefeated at home, but Ducks will flap on — OREGON
Georgia (5-5) at #2 Auburn (10-0) — Tigers have to make sure to not get caught looking past 'Dawgs to Iron Bowl. Or you know, have their QB get caught asking for money from recruiters. Bye-bye Heisman? — AUBURN
San Diego State (7-2) at TCU (10-0) — Horned Frogs took out Utah, probably will get by Aztecs — TCU
South Carolina (6-3) at Florida (6-3) — This is effectively for the SEC East (i.e. the right to play Auburn. Spurrier sticks it to his old team — SOUTH CAROLINA
Minnesota (3-5) at Chicago (5-3) — "Favre reiterates retirement" Good, cause we haven't talked about THAT enough — BEARS
Tennessee (5-3) at Miami (4-4) — Dolphins have played poorly at home. Welcome to the NFL — TITANS
Detroit (2-6) at Buffalo (0-8) — So if the Bills win, do the 2008 Lions break out the champagne? — LIONS
Houston (4-4) at Jacksonville (4-4) — Eeeny meeny miney — TEXANS
NY Jets (6-2) at Cleveland (3-5) — Took down the Pats, why not the J-E-T-S — BROWNS
Cincinnati (2-6) at Indianapolis (5-3) — Bengals have just imploded this year — COLTS
Carolina (1-7) at Tampa Bay (5-3) — They're not winning the NFC, but they're good enough here — BUCCANEERS
Kansas City (5-3) at Denver (2-6) — Chiefs have chance for payback for the last few years — CHIEFS
Dallas (1-7) at NY Giants (6-2) — How much would it tick off Cowboys fans to have the G-men playing in the Super Bowl in their stadium — GIANTS
St. Louis (4-4) at San Francisco (2-6) — Troy Smith will be the starter for San Fran. Good enough — 49ERS
Seattle (4-4) at Arizona (3-5) — Home team rule — CARDINALS
New England (6-2) at Pittsburgh (6-2) — Another NFC North team, another beatdown for the Pats — STEELERS
Philadelphia (5-3) at Washington (4-4) — McNabb may be fired up after getting benched late — REDSKINS
Talk to you soon....SPEAKING FRANKLY
