a quick check on athens.

As this is an Ohio State football tailgating blog, I’m a little hesitant to spend much time here on my other college football team. But seeing as how my other blogging outlet is taking a rest, I don’t really have anywhere else to mention that there’s at least one national publication that’s thinking my OU Bobcats could run the table this season.

Yes. Really.

As Holly Anderson points out, the conference schedule is filled with teams that couldn’t break .500 a year ago, and the non-conference schedule, with one exception, isn’t exactly frightening either. More than half of the team’s 2011 starters return, and that includes quarterback Tyler Tettleton, who set records in his first year as a starter.

I think we’ll know all we need to know about the Bobcats by 3 p.m. Saturday; by then, they’ll have finished their opening game, against Penn State in Happy Valley. MAC teams don’t beat Big Ten teams on the road very often, but it does happen once in a while — right, Ann Arbor? And if the Nittany Lions aren’t focused on Saturday — something that would be completely understandable — that game is an upset waiting to happen.

Whaddaya say, Frank? Ready to play in a BCS game again?

    Saturday should be interesting. Any other year I’d admit your Bobcats had a chance. If it turns out this weekend is their only loss, they should take it up with Mark Emmert. He has created some very, very angry Lions.
