So I’m not sure whether Texas Tech proved me wrong, or if Arkansas is just bad this year.  Either way, the Bret Bielema vs. Kliff Kingsbury thing is funny.

Texas Tech will likely struggle this week, when it hosts TCU in both schools’ conference opener.  Although I don’t see the Frogs scoring 82 points again, two years ago the teams played a great game to open conference play in Lubbock.  The difference?  TCU’s entire offense returned this year from a team which rolled over Ole Miss in the Peach Bowl last year.

Oklahoma State looked GREAT against UTSA on Saturday and was the only team favored by 20 or more to cover.  Texas still looks disastrous against Cal, despite its comeback.  I guess you could say every Rose has its thorn.  I said before the season that while I expect the Pokes to win in Austin, I see them losing at either Texas or West Virginia.  Although, the last time a home team won in this series was 2008 in Austin.  A random fact, OSU’s entire nonconference schedule were Adidas schools.

I’m intrigued by West Virginia’s match-up with Maryland and Steve Lebby’s “suspension” for the first half of Baylor’s game against Oklahoma.  Come on, the guy is from the Oklahoma City area and Phillip Montgomery who is now the coach at Tulsa after being the OC at Baylor gave him those passes, give him a break.

Look for Kansas to lose… again.  The same could go for Iowa State had the Cyclones not scheduled a bye for this week.
