Dirrrty South

Awful. That's about how I felt watching LSU suck wind and falter against UT who really puts it together when the QB they want is strapped in. I don't like Tennessee at all. They get away with murder ( holding penalties, chop blocks..not recruiting violations I haven't seen those), and they have a smug triumverent of coaches I wouldn't piss on if they were on fire. Enough, finally though Erik Ainge did just enough to sit the pine for one more year. I saw this kid in person and was impressed, but he seems to have regressed. And the Claussens are a poor man's Manning. Of course the next Claussen looks like the next coming of Eli.

Other thoughts for the first month of college ball: Ted Ginn = Rocket Ismail.
Bob Davie's corpse is a good start. I wrote that note to self two weeks ago when he called the USC/Georgia game. Last night Ron Franklin (the best) brought Davie's game up a notch from putrid. Let the hate mail begin, but Charlie Whitehurst is the 2nd best QB in the nation. Let me qualify that: Throwing QB. I don't like running/option style qb's unless its the 80's or 90's and we're talking Oklahoma v. Nebraska. There aren't many throwing QB's out there. Don't get me wrong Chris Leak is fantastic and so are Matt Leinhart's backups, but there just isn't much other competition for a best throwing QB out there. If I'm drafting today for a Quarterback, I pick Charlie second.

The High Five:

1. Colts
2. Patriots
3. Steelers
4. Bengals
5. Buccaneers

The High Five Jr.
1. USC
2. Texas
3. Va Tech
4. Florida
5. FSU-not the fifth best but undefeated and I'll give them the respect for now.
