Andre’ Woodson has earned the no. 2 quarterback draft position, and that ranking might rise if his–and the Wildcat–success continues. As the announcers referred to later in the game, there was a reason that Louisville-Kentucky was on ESPN Classic, and it might just be that both Brohm and Woodson could be top 5 picks this April.
Woodson and Brohm both put up great numbers, and deserve some serious draft consideration at this point, but it might be Woodson who succeeds in the long run. Kentucky might venture into the top 25 this week, and it is about time to give Woodson a little credit. Woodson seems composed enough to take his game to the next level, and his height along with his production for a quarterback is unmatched.
The Arkansas-Alabama game was certainly an interesting one. For starters, this was Nick Saban’s first major victory at Alabama. It’s not taking Saban long to prove to people (and more importantly, to potential recruits) that it’s not going to take long for him to start winning on a consistent basis at Alabama. John Parker Wilson also had an impressive game as quarterback for the Tide. Meanwhile, Darren McFadden showed everyone why he’s the number one prospect this year but it really seems like Arkansas can use a quarterback.
In other news:
- USC is handling Nebraska quite easily.
- Oklahoma did nothing to make me change my mind about them, I still have them going to the title game with that fierce rushing attack.
- I’m starting to feel bad for Notre Dame. It’s not going to get any easier for them as they face Michigan State (3-0), Purdue (3-0), #11 UCLA (2-1), *#21 BC (2-0), and #1 USC (1-0) in the upcoming weeks. They better find some offense, and fast. * = As of 11:35 PM Est.
- For the second time this year, Texas struggled with what looked to be an “easy” opponent. The first time was against Arkansas State in the opener.
Another crazy night in college football. Couldn’t wait for Sunday to make my weekly post.
