    As many others pointed out, Thursday is going to be a HUGE day in the Crop​
    BY: BROG​


    Watch for these monster battles:



    [​IMG][​IMG]

    #2 Florida (Bits) @ #1 Ohio State (RTP):

    This game jumps right past conference title implications and goes right to national title implications. These two powers face off to determine which team has the inside track to the title game. Defending champs Florida field another amazing team while surging Ohio State fields their best team under the new coaching staff. Florida sports one of the fastest teams you'll ever see and has but one weakness - young linebackers. Ohio State has a great defense with only one weakness - an inexperienced free safety. Look for Florida's speed at WR to challenge that lone weakness. Going the other way, Florida has an incredible defensive line (95+ avg rating) that could prove problematic for Ohio State's inexperienced offensive line (85 avg rating). Ohio State is led by one of the premier signal callers in the game, but they'll have their hands full against a too-good-to-be-true Florida team. With both teams fielding great defenses, this game will be won or lost on turnovers. Should be a classic.



    [​IMG][​IMG]

    #4 Wyoming (David) @ #3 Cincinnati (Tuco):

    One half of the Big 12 will be decided when these two programs battle it out. The winner gets OU in the B12 title game where another win would yield a title game invite. Wyoming has a sizable advantage on offensive skilled positions, but Cincy has a 90-81 (avg rating) advantage on the O-line. On defense it's not even close with Cincy well-ahead at every positions except for FS (and David McNeal - as I recall - is a good one). After a disapointing season last year, Wyoming is looking to make the jump to the "next level". They'll need to out-play a better team on the road to make that happen.



    [​IMG][​IMG]

    #12 Michigan (Payton) @ #5 Michigan State (Brog):

    Again, one half of the B10 will be decided when Sparty hosts rival Michigan. These teams have split their games the past 4 seasons with the home team winning every one. Michigan is recovering from major losses last season and still trying to reclaim the state of Michigan. MSU is still in the title hunt after an early loss to Stanford, but needs to keep Big Brother down to keep their hopes alive. MSU out-ranks Michigan at every position except for TE and should come away with the win.

    Fantastic week in the Crop ... I'm excited to see all three games broadcasted.

    My predictions:

    Florida

    Ashley's Buckeyes are inchin' closer to becoming elite, but they're not quite there yet.

    Cincinnati

    Perhaps the hardest game to predict, but I'm going with the Bearcats. Coach Tuco's QB/HB combination will be the difference. Cincy's vunerable vs. the run, but the Cowboys won't expose it.

    Michigan State

    It's payback time, baby. The Wolverines will play the Spartans tough (as usual), but they just don't have the horses this season.

    I don't have the full history in the Crop, so I'm sure there have been bigger weeks. But this seems like a pretty big one to me. All three games have national title implications. Admittedly, MSU-Michigan is the least significant of the three, but still pretty significant. Both those teams are still in the title picture. Wyoming/Cincy is big for many reasons - not least of which is the way last season's game ended. OSU/UF is a mid-season 1/2 matchup. While either team (in theory) could recover from a loss and still get in, the challenge to do so will be significant.

    Whether it's the biggest week ever or just the biggest week in a while, one thing is sure - it's a big fucking week.

    Predictions:

    UF by 2 : Bits protects the ball and over-powers the OSU O-line
    Cincy by 7 : Cincy's D gets 3-4 picks and Wyoming's O-line and D struggle
    MSU by more than 7: Sparty is poised for a big win over Michigan

    I know - going out on a limb, but that's what I'm feeling. I think your shotgun should help to minimize the discrepancy between your lines, but your pass-happy offense is interception-prone. Cincy's D is great and will have the HFA. You may prove me wrong, but that's why they call it a prediction. I wish you the best of luck in making me eat my words.

    And that clip is awesome. I won't miss TO one bit.

    As for my extracurricular activities, my supply is dry. I'll have to work on that.
