Welcome to Week Seven of the Hugo-award finding QB Mountain watch list.
Last Week Thoughts
As always, if you want a little analytics with your chat, PFF has a great roundtable looking at that side of the ledger for the gents we discuss #onhere.
Out of last week’s results, Baker Mayfield and Oklahoma’s loss loomed the largest. That flag plant was a doozy. Iowa State – my goodness that was nice.
NFL Team Check ins:
We’re now down to 3 teams that are 0-er (Cleveland, New York Giants and San Francisco) and 2 teams that have 1 win (Chicago and the L.A. Chargers) – meaning there are presumably 3/5 of those teams that could take a quarterback if they’re in the top five. At this point I’m anticipating – barring an injury to Taylor or McCoy – somewhere between 6-9 wins. Make of that what you will!
Games to Watch this Weekend: (All times EST)
Wazzu at Cal (10:30pm, ESPN) – Luke Falk vs Cal should be another points-are-everywhere sort of game. I’ll have it DVR’d to watch in the morning, as my high school coaching (Go Wolverines!) will take precedence.
Boston College at Louisville (12:20pm, ACC Network) – Lamar Jackson needs a bounceback game stat wise – and BC should be just what the doctor ordered.
Auburn at LSU (3:30pm, CBS) – Stidham against LSU’s defense – coupled with Canada’s LSU Offense versus Auburn – should be fun.
Oklahoma at Texas (3:30pm, ESPN) – The Red River Rivalry this year features an Oklahoma reeling from a flag-planting loss and Texas is more than happy to host their forever rivals in such a condition. Mayfield, what do ya have now?
Baylor at Oklahoma State (3:30pm, FS1) – Hang a half hundred on ’em Cowboys. For the culture.
Charlotte at Western Kentucky / Wyoming at Utah State (4:30pm, GOOD LUCK) – Double bonus of “GOOD LUCK” games, in terms of TV Coverage and mehness of sid games.
UCLA at Arizona (9pm, Pac-12 Network) – The Chosen one versus RichRod. Hachi. Machi.
That’s it for this week. Tweet us and let us know if we’ve missed a QB you’ve had your eyes on!
