Our game is a nationally televised one on tWWL. Carter Blackburn, Brock Huard and Mike Bellotti are going to be in the booth. They did the Kansas State game last weekend and thought Huard/Bellotti combination was pretty good. I particularly appreciated both of their commentary on our defense. Will be interesting to see what they have to say today (btw Bellotti and Neuheisel have become close despite their intense rivalry dating back to Neuehisel's Colorado/Washington days). Anyway ... we have hours to go till the kickoff of our home season opener.
Mentioned in the roundup thread that we won't put up the game thread till 12:30 pm PST but might as well get started early ... because ... well it's apparently a "Monster" Saturday (at least that's what tWWL is telling us). Well not sure we have the OMG the greatest matchups evah docketed on the same day. Still there are same tasty matchups to keep us occupied through kickoff. It will be interesting to see how the Michigan-Notre Dame game turns out. There is also Ohio State-Miami, Oklahoma-Florida State and the Alabama-Penn State actions if you are into old school matchups. The Florida-South Florida game is already pretty "interesting" (given how Florida looked last week against a cupcake opponent). You can keep track of the full scoreboard here.
So if you are watching other games this am, share your quick takes, observations or pre game nervous musings, here is our open thread. Have fun.
