In The Bleachers - "ITB's Slate of Eight: Week Twelve"


After a weekend that saw me head up to Chapel Hill for homecoming we’re back on track for the Slate of Eight folks. Talking all of your big games this weekend with the gumption that you expect out of the kid. We talk a little BCS Bowl picture, the difference between being explosive and efficient, plus why coaches can’t hit people and a little more.

Duke-Georgia Tech
Texas Tech-Oklahoma State
Ole Miss-LSU
Ohio State-Wisconsin
Oklahoma-West Virginia

The Big East is still up for grabs and it seems like we’re definitely on the verge of an interesting finish. While the conference lost their Top Ten unbeaten team, the league is still definitely worth following folks. Duke makes another appearance on the Slate and it’s because the Georgia Tech game is a battle for them to stay in contention for the ACC Coastal. Duke’s going to struggle to stop the Jackets but keep an eye on Atlanta.

Texas Tech can capitalize on a bad Oklahoma State quarterbacking situation. Ole Miss is a team that has no bitch in them, but they just aren’t good enough to beat LSU. Ohio State is going to test the soft edges of Wisconsin’s defense. Oklahoma playing West Virginia. You remember West Virginia? Do you? Remember? Oklahoma tries to avoid being upset by a middling West Virginia team that people thought were amazing world champions for beating terrible Baylor.

Our fun talk is to end the show. The Pac-12 has UCLA, a team I love, battling USC for the right to the Pac-12 South Crown. UCLA’s finally having fun playing football, thanks to Jim Mora and now he’s going to try and beat up on Lane Kiffin’s bunch. Up in the North, Oregon looks to outscore Stanford as they have the last two seasons.
