THURSDAY NIGHT OBSERVATIONS

I had a little party for myself last night when Vandy and Miami OH kicked off at 6:30 PM. This is my favorite time of year...no question. Observations from the first round of games:
NC State has a TERRIBLE offense.
South Carolina's didn't play much better last night but their defense is absolutely legit.
Vandy coach Bobby Johnson made the right choice starting QB Chris Nickson...he's a solid athlete.
Stanford, believe it or not, will give some Pac-10 teams a run for their money this year. They have a very solid defense with great pash rushers and linebackers. Watch for yourselves if you don't believe me. They've got athletes and beat a pretty good Oregon State team last night. What a way for that game to end...a great start to the Pac-10 season.
Wake Forest has a good chance to win the ACC. Riley Skinner is some kind of efficient and has a good corps of receivers and a good RB. They're defense is arguably the best in the conference, too. Alphonso Smith will be a Day 1 pick in the draft. OLB Aaron Curry is a beast, too.
Jesse Palmer looked ridiculous on the NC State/SC broadcast. Anyone notice his tie didn't even come close to his belt? My wife can't stand him because of what she saw on the Bachelor...I wouldn't know...I've never watched the Bachelor...(sheepish grin)...
And amidst all the CFB hubub...the Cowboys wrapped up the pre-season. Non-eventful game except we got our third WR injured...great. Just what we need. Adam Jones is reinstated, too...in case you were in a cave yesterday.
