And it's probably the reason his best player was just released from the hospital with a concussion.

Yep, but you know he will be back on the field in two weeks. Luckily it is UF's off-week.

Good weekend of football. The only thing that went wrong was Georgia's loss to LSU.

jayrot - LSU and Florida next week could be very interesting.
PS - I still think that Notre Dame's Jimmie Clausen is the best pro prospect at quarterback in the nation.

Yes it should be a great game. Even more so with the questions surrounding Teabow. I think he will be just fine and UF will win. We'll see though?

Clausen will give USC fits this year. One quarterback that I think will be good in the next few years is Mallett at Arkansas. He isn't there yet but he has a killer throw when it is good.

old scout - You beat me to it. I was going to say that only Pike from Cincy might be drafted higher than Clausen. He certainly is a good one. Both have earned their stripes this year.

jatrot - Tim Tebow has always played with reckless abandon. I wonder what that huge hit and the resulting deep concussion will do to him psychologically. Also, the coaches might be overly protective and not call rushing plays with him carrying, and that is a lot of his game.

JG-I talked to several ND football players yesterday while at a softball tourney at ND & they said Clausen has  ice in his veins.

We were at LandShark Stadium on Saturday night for The U vs. Oklahoma. 6 of us flew down and got tix from a scalper. Only 2 of us are Canes' fans. We ended up sitting in section completely surrounded by Sooners' fans. Really nice people. Absolutely knowledgable about their school, their team and football in general. It was a nailbiter the entire game and it was a classic. And then we hit Ocean Drive in South Beach for booze and women after the game.

old scout - I hope that you walked the campus - that and U. Virginia are my favorites. I have spent many happy hours at Ivey Field (ND Softball) but have not had the pleasure of visiting the new stadium. I heard that it's very nice.

Joisey- I think you said it perfectly. It will be interesting to watch and see if Teabow throws himself full-force into all of his plays after that injury. And it will be even more interesting to see if LSU preys on Teabow and that situation.

PGP, glad you got to see that game. That was a superb possession by the Hurricanes on that last drive to end the game.

jayrot - Monday has come and gone, and Tim Tebow has not been cleared to play or practice. Even if he is cleared later in the week, will he be at his best against a formidable team like LSU? Florida might be better off going with their #2 who is a pretty good quarterback.

There was only talking and dancing with the ladies of South Beach. 3 of us have significant others and the other 3 have the balls and chains.

old scout - Did you get up to the Hall of Honor where every letter winner from ND forever has his or her name encased in gold around the top of the room? Just great, and also great exhibits of past ND people.

Tim Tebow is a kickoff decision as to whether he will play for Florida against LSU this week. I have very mixed feelings about this. In college, I once incurred a deep concussion and played almost an entire game that I don't remember except for a few instances (actually three). I woke up naked and sitting on a bench after showering post game in the team room. Only one other player was still there, and he asked me if I were all right, and I told him "No" and asked him to stay with me. He walked me to our fraternity house, and I had difficulty staying on the sidewalk. I did not throw up but I had a horrible headache for a few days. I never saw a doctor and played the following Saturday, assuring the coaches that I was "all right".

My point is that young kids need someone to protect them from themselves. What I did was very dangerous and overly "macho", but I didn't know any better, and back then (55 or so years ago) we didn't have such a medical staff. . Thank goodness that Tim Tebow is surrounded by medical personnel who will make the decision whether he will play or not, not the coaches, and not Tim himself.

Joisey, I will be HIGHLY surprised if Teabow doesn't play. Knowing that UF has seen what has happened to other schools (ie USC and Oklahoma without their first string). I think I would plan for it being Teabow no matter what.

How about those Hawkeyes.They have a very tough schedule with games at Wisconsin,Michigan State & Ohio State.Still it's kind of cool for an old Hawkeye fan,takes us back to the good old days of Iowa Rock'm-sock'm football. What great fans at Iowa city,fill Kinnick stadium winning season or losing season/90 degrees or 10 degrees.
And the greatest  thing is the visitors locker room is pink

Scout - reminds me of the '85 team (ah, the days of my youth) as far as game results go.  You could kinda tell '85 was going to be a good year with Chuck Long and Ronnie Harmon, but I gotta say I had NO IDEA this was going to happen this year, especially after being life-and-death with UNI in their first game.

They were my favorite college team until...you know...but they are a very strong second favorite now.

85 team was great.What is crazy is the number of coaches in college football today that played for and/or coached under Hayden Fry.

Ok, now that UCLA has finished the fluff part of their schedule (SEC and Big 12 teams) and now is playing against real football teams in the Pac-10 there isn't much to write home about.  The defense is playing very well, the offense just has no experience and is playing terrible.  (Man, this defense with the Cade McNown offense of a decade ago would have been killer!)

Anyway, there was one remarkable play against Oregon that is worth seeing.  It's probably the most deft footwork on an interception that I've ever seen.  Actually, my seats are beyond the opposite end zone so I only heard about it until watching this video.  So far this is the highlight clip for the UCLA football season.  Take a look...

Yes.  It's hard to say the cause but I think it's a combination of lack of personnel and the offense being throttled to try to avoid mistakes with that personnel.  Most of the offense is freshman or sophomores and the really talented ones are freshman so they keep the offense simple.  I think it takes a year or so for a player to understand Chow's offense and to be bulky (strong) enough to play D1 football.  The upper classmen are pretty much a non-factor on the offensive side. 

I think in a year or two things will be much more solid as the recruiting has been very good.  An ESPN top 3 running back recruit from Oaks Christian just committed last Thursday.  He then took it upon himself to start recruiting offensive linemen and went for one of the top O-line recruits at Mater Dei, a USC pipeline for years, and got a committment out of him on Saturday.  Things will look a lot better by the 2011 campaign.

People focus on USC in So Cal and forget that in the last 30 years the record in head to head competition is 15-14-1 favoring USC.  Their dominance is only recent and as we've seen in the last decade can switch on a dime.  Recruiting is the the life blood of college football and if there's one thing that Rick Neuheisel does well it is recruit.

Ok, in part I agree with you, but also, you have Kevin Prince and Kevin Craft, which should have "experience" on their side, and now two years of Chow offense. I don't really know enough about UCLA's O-line to say anything, but until UCLA can find a QB that "sees the field" better those two QBs, it will be kinda rough.

And as you said, UCLAs D is the only thing keeping them in games.

Just my opinion though.

One last point: I find it interesting that as UCLA switches into a heavy RB scheme, USC is kinda moving out of that somewhat (and yes I know USC has like 5 RBs that they play in ever game and they run for hundreds of yards a game). I just think that as Barkley's tenure goes on, USC will turn into a bigger passing team.
