I think our recruiting class could beat UW.
Grove don't forget the 19 point lead we had on you in the 3rd qtr. We were a decent Cornerback from putting you guys away. Great comeback but I'm not fooled by Texas' Top Recruit rankings ...it's been like that for the last 4 years and you guys still haven't made it to the Big Game. Next time our teams meet they'll be no comebacks...we win outright.
Sizzle hehehe my post was calling YOU out in particular. I really like this battle between Neuheisel and Belloti. The Ducks finished strong with some nice pickups. My honest opinion is that our new QB Pickett did well and in many ways we were a much better passing team but with our new OL we struggle with the run this year(Hurst had no problems putting 150+ yards on the Mighty Longhorns though LOL). I think the thing that will determine how good Fife is will be his performance in the clutch. Marques was great at taking over the UW team and willing it to victory...Harrington had that same quality. Even if a QB throws a great pass they don't always have this talent(see Brock Huard). I wouldn't put the UW as the odds on favorite for the Pac10 title. Our Defense will need to play MUCH better than last year. I think our Offense will be great with a deeper more experience OL. If our Defense doesn't improve we're gonna have to win alot of shootouts.
