Week fourteen weekend thoughts

So sad!  It's the final regular-season weekend for all of college football.

Luckily college football is very much a year-round ordeal so CFR is not going anywhere.  Heisman ceremony.  Bowl games.  Recruiting.  Letter-of-intent day.  Spring practice.  Summer practice.  Fall practice.  Start all over again.

Colorado @ Texas

The 'Horns know they're playing for the Rose Bowl and should put together a fine performance in the early game.  Colorado backed into this one and really have no business being on the same field with Texas.

Navy @ Army

I can't take sides, so I'd rather just enjoy two well-coached teams representing our fine service academies.

UCLA @ USC

I'm actually a bit worried for the Trojans.  That said, they're averaging something well over 600 yards in home games this year.  I think UCLA will overprepare for Reggie Bush and give a lot of openings to USC's power run game and disciplined pass attack.  Advantage: USC in one of the nation's most unhealthy rivalries.

Georgia @ LSU

I'd have an easy Georgia selection here, but they display an uncanny reticence in big games, letting slightly inferior opponents (Georgia Tech, South Carolina)  get within range.  I'm still going with the Dawgs to shake up all those who have so casually slotted LSU in a BCS game.

Florida State @ Virginia Tech

This one should get ugly.  I know the 'Noles are playing for pride and Jeff Bowden for a quiet offseason, but they're way outclassed in this one.  I think the Hokies will put together one of their finest defensive efforts and scramble the brains of poor Drew Weatherford.  This game may be one of those pivotal moments that determines whether FSU can go on with its charade for another season or two, or wheter they need to make some painful changes at least from within the assistant ranks.  It's obvious that recruiting will continue to be great for years on end, but good recruits don't mean good wins anymore.
