1. Is it too early to start thinking about the NFL draft? Tell us about one of your players expected to go in this year's draft.
I don't really follow the NFL (except for San Francisco, GO NINERS!!!!), and (sadly) don't really know about what guys from Oregon State are supposedly going to be drafted. I have heard Adam Speers (Guard) come up as a possible 1st day pick, but it's really up in the air. Anyone who follows the NFL, if you have any insight into this, please let me know.
2. Who is the Pac10 B-Ball Player of the Year so far? Show your work.
I didn't see any stellar performances, but a couple opened my eyes. James Harden averaged 22.5 points this weekend, but had 36 against Oregon. But probably most impressive was going 40 and 39 minutes against Oregon and OSU respectively. But I think the overall award has to go to Chase Budinger. 40 minutes in both games this weekend, averaged 21 points and 8.5 boards. He was crucial in Arizona's win over Oregon State, and I'm sure he did his thing against Oregon too.
Jodi Ann Paterson
And Sara Underwood
I would also like to add that both these girls are true Oregonians. Patterson grew up in Springfield, OR, and Sara Underwood (perhaps more commonly known as Sara Jean) grew up in Scappoose, OR, also home to ex-Beaver QB Derek Anderson.
5. Ragnarok over at the California Golden Blogs wrote this magnum opus about a Faustian re-organization of college football entitled "A Total College Football Reorganization."
So, what are your thoughts on his seemingly controversial re-org. Moreover, what does Faustian mean? I just google important sounding words to get a vague appreciation of them and then put them into sentences in places where they seem like they might make actual sense. Hope I "NAILED IT" with this one.
Rags, that was brilliant. I loved it. The only problem I had was some of the seemingly weak divisions (Cal's, Ohio State's, LSU's) and some of the toughest ones. However, all that being said, it was a great geographic realignment and in today's economy, it could be a lot cheaper for teams to drive a few hundred miles then having to fly 1,000s every other weekend. And faustian is used to describe the wider interpretations of the events of Faust by Johan Wolfgang von Goethe, I think.
