    IVY HEAD COACH SPOTLIGHT
    [​IMG]

    Steele: Thank you for letting me sit down with you Coach. I have a few quick questions. Going into this game, what is the biggest problem the Cavaliers pose to your team?

    Gyrene: David Watford, David Watford, and David Watford. He is an elite collegiate quarterback that has the wheels to make my defensive coordinator think about taking a vacation after this week. Not to mention he has a stellar arm and great throwing ability (93 OVR).

    Our defense is still a work in progress and they will really have to play smart football to keep Watford at least a little in check.

    Steele: What is your greatest challenge when it comes to building a program like Penn from the ground up?

    Gyrene: Well, the biggest thing is getting kids excited about Quaker football. We aren't a household name and we don't have Nike backing us like that team up near Canada. I try to relate to the players, let them see what we've done the past two years. As head coach, I'm 16-2 and hopefully, I can start pulling in even more talent to make a run at the conference championship.

    I'm trying to instill a little swag into our program. Quakers isn't really a scary mascot, but I'm trying to get the AD to add lightning bolts or something to our helmets, and convey a "quaking, shaking" type mantra around here; I have some boosters who are also discussing a red field and strobe lights into our stadium (epileptics of course could not come to the game unfortunately.)

    Steele: QB Christian Foster is the best player and leader on your team. What sticks out to you about Foster?

    Gyrene: Foster is an amazing talent. He has such a poise about him that he instills confidence in his entire team. Last year, when he got hurt in his first drive against Yale, you could see it. You could see the confidence just drain from our team. Hopefully he avoids the injury bug this year, and shows the country what he is capable of.

    Steele: Give us the name of the player you believe will have the biggest impact against Virginia?

    Gyrene: Honestly, I have to go with Foster. I know people get tired of always praising the quarterback, but my offense goes as he goes. If he plays mistake free and focuses on field position, then I believe we can pull the upset.

    Steele: Just before you take the field, what message will you send to your team?

    Gyrene: I tell them that I am proud of them and that the only thing I want is for them to go hard. We are the underdogs and we have no pressure outside this room. But in that locker room, it's a boiler press. They know that I expect them to find a way to win and be a man for 60 minutes on that field.

    COLLEGE GAMEDAY PREDICTIONS
    Game Slate:
    [​IMG]vs. [​IMG]
    Dartmouth will look to rebound at home against a Vanderbilt squad that was embarrassed in their opener against the Volunteers. Dartmouth's young defense was exposed against a potent Rutgers offense. The Joe Campbell led attack sputtered early and often. A three interception outing will not cut it this week against an SEC foe.​
    Expert Pick: DARTMOUTH

    [​IMG]vs. [​IMG]
    Coming off a huge win against #4 Oregon in Autzen Stadium the Brown Bears will host the Temple Owls. This will be the second straight week Temple will be playing an Ivy League opponent. Last week the Owl offense exploded and handed Princeton a 50-59 loss. Can Brown keep rolling?
    Expert Pick: BROWN
    [​IMG]vs. [​IMG]
    Last week the Hoyas escaped Charlottesville 30-28 to improve to 1-0. This week, Georgetown faces a scrappy Golden Flash team that upset Oregon State last week in a 24-22 victory. Look for this game to go down to the wire despite the Hoyas talent advantage.

    Expert Pick: KENT STATE
    [​IMG]vs. [​IMG]
    Lee Corso: Ok, here it folks! I'm gonna tell you what - there's this famous quote, and it's a good one! "By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail." You know how said that Kirk?​

    That's right, Benjamin Franklin. Get this Cavalier hat OUTTA HERE!

    *Tosses Cavalier hat off the set*
    *Corso Proceeds to walk behind a curtain that shields him from sight*
    *Lee's voice behind the curtain*

    "Benjamin Franklin would pick his Quakers, and so am I!"

    *Corso jumps out from behind the curtain*

    Was going to do them all but everytime I kept finishing one a user would beat me to the punch and finish their game before I could predict.

    I decided 3 games plus the featured location game was good enough.
