Last Years squad had an excellent season 3 rounds in the playoffs surprising everybody including myself. I knew they would be better than what all the magazines and websites had them picked, but not like that. But on to this year they lost a lot off of last years team only 3 starters back on each side of the ball the least amount of returning letterman in the district. But on the positive if there is one person you could pick to be back from a team that went 3 rounds in the playoffs it would be the quarterback. Tomball’s quarterback is back #10 Justin Dvorak played about as well as I seen a Tomball quarterback ever play. Now what’s around him is gonna be different they are losing some size at all positions, They new WR’s are gonna be much smaller. They one receiver they do have coming back #9 Jameson Johnson best route runner of the group the guy opposite of him Jackson I think is a better downfield threat good hands didn’t see him drop to many balls in spring and 7on7, Just doesn’t have the size WR’s had last year. Offensive line one guy coming back is Tackle Connor Patterson. (Rice Commit).

On Defense coming back Middle Linebacker #55 Kyle Harden and DT A.J. Mathews some new people will be filling in around them in the front 7. The secondary kinda worries me the corners to be specific. Last year Malcolm Scott moving in really made that defense he’s gone off to UTSA. #20 Terrence Johnson should fill in his spot. He was hurt most of the year last year so it remains to be seen what he can do. Malcolm Scott’ lil bro Dmitri Scott could play one the other corner spots. But he also figures to be one of the main ball carriers at running back. If the sophomore Xavier Powell can show he can carry the load at running back. I think Dmitri will see a lot of action at corner just to have a good athlete back there. But the other spots are questionable and unproven if you ask me. Early on will be a good measuring stick last year

Last years JV Teams had winning records, and The varsity scrimmaged Cy Fair and they pretty much stalemated each other and the 3 non-district games Tomball blew out Morton Ranch, Mayde Creek and played Jersey Village well. All four of those teams are coming back the same. Cy Fair was a team that went a couple of rounds has 6 Offensive and 8 defensive starters back, Morton Ranch, 8 and 6 coming back Mayde Creek, 9 and 6 coming back and 6 and 8 coming back. If Tomball can repeat the results they did last year in those 4 games. Things should look pretty good come district. But if they struggle lose a couple things could get a little hairy come district.

MY REASONING/OBSERVATIONS: This is district has the most top flight talent in Houston and arguably the state. 13-5A is one of the toughest you could take 7 of 8 teams from this district and they would sweep 14-5A’s four playoff teams (which they did last year) But anyways just like last year I seem to be a lil bit high Dekaney bandwagon, But last year I think I was spot on their loses were extremely close. They lost to Klein Collins by a point. I think they have what it takes to beat Klein Collins, Now for Klein Collins to go back over Dekaney in the standings Dekaney would need to lose 2 games to district teams and I don’t see that happening. But 7 teams could easily be in the Final Four. Tomball and Klein Forest all everything Quarterback Matt Davis and the end of the season could be for that final playoff spot

1. BRENHAM 1st year to pick district  
2. STRATFORD    
3. MONTGOMERY    
4. MAGNOLIA WEST    
5. WALLER    
6. MAGNOLIA    
7. SPRING WOODS    
8. NORTHBROOK    

MY REASONING/OBESRVATIONS 17-4A: I don’t really care for 4A football this area especially, But my guess it that this will be the District Tomball will be in next year. My guess is that Spring Woods and Northbrook will get moved and Tomball and Tomball Memorial will be put. But Brenham is by far the best team in this district and will finish 10-0 like they did last year before suffering probably one of the biggest upsets I can remember in high school football against Kingwood Park. The top three teams Stratford has Jeremiah Briscoe QB who is a D-1 quarterback (uncommitted yet) Pac-10 bound would be my guess who transferred from 2nd Baptist private school. And Montgomery has 8 starters back from a team that went 4 rounds last year. I believe Magnolia West should be 4th with should be Tomball running back Desmond Richards who transferred there last year. Who ever wins that Waller vs Magnolia West game gets that final playoff spot.

MY REASONING-OBSERVATIONS 14-5A:

This district is pretty top heavy after The Woodlands and Lufkin the drop off is pretty noticeable. And those two have some big question marks. Woodlands has to replace 4 year starter Daniel Lasco who grad and is playing at Cal. The replacements I seen during the spring didn’t look too imposing. But they have everything else. The quarterback position is still open Lance Miles and Cooper Woodyard will split time early on the when district settles, go with one, but whoever they go with, the other will be on the field somewhere their both too talented to have on the sideline, but Cooper has more options with RB, and Safety. Lufkin has their 1st white quarterback since I can remember and he needs some work. I asked someone if they could remember when the last white quarterback Lufkin was and they couldn’t 2000 is as far back as I could remember. Oak Ridge has Michael Handy moved to Quarterback, he has been playing a key role on Oak Ridge since his Freshman year, But this will be his 1st at Quarterback. All the other teams in the are rather bunched up and rather bland no real superstar, There are some college players but no real stars this year

17-5A TOES THOUGHTS OBSERVATIONS. In my opinion the most jumbled wide open district in the state. I think you could make a case for 7 out of the 10 teams to not only make the playoffs but win the whole district. Cy Fair seems to be the most logical choice. The best defense in the district with 8 starters back. But something just rubs me the wrong way about them. I think their a borderline playoff team. Langham Creek also has 8 starters back on D and 8 on Offense. Langham Creek has Connor Fiest a Junior who will be the top QB’s in Texas next year, and pretty much get his choice on where he goes. I read Cy Ridge is also getting Jeff Nebors a QB transfer from Canyon Lake 3A watched some youtube of him he is tall athletic QB who can move. Also supposedly a big kid from Detroit transferred to Cy Ridge I forget his name but around 6-6 300lbs, who already has D-1 offers but those two could push Ridge into that final playoff spot. But I will go with Cy Falls to win this district because I really like their offense with Gee Gladney who they play all over the field at multiple positions, Whoever gets the D2 playoff spots is a good bet to go 4 rounds I think its really weak and doesn’t have a top flight team in the whole region. As long as Katy goes D1 which is looking pretty probable unless Katy Seven Lakes can get in and Push Katy down to D-2

STATE CHAMPIONSHIP PREDICTIONS

It is tough picking these cause you have to guesstimate who is gonna be Division 1 and Division 2 based on the playoff teams enrollment numbers. Katy is the real guess here as I feel its 60-40 on whether they are D1 or D2, I kinda hope they go D2 cause the whole region is weak in my opinion, But if they go D1 we probably get a rematch with Pearland in the 4th round from last years classic.

5A D1 Allen over Katy

AFC WEST

1. SAN DIEGO CHARGERS- Sproles loss might hurt, But I think this is their year

SUPER BOWL PICK

ATLANTA FALCONS over SAN DIEGO CHARGERS

Thoughts/Reasoning. You know everybody and their mama is gonna pick the Eagles and the Patriots, and you know Super Bowls never seem to work out that way. Matt Ryan is gonna have a field day this year Julio Jones and Roddy White,Tony Gonzales, Jaquizz Rodgers a rookie be getting some carries, a solid defense. I like them to win the NFC, AFC I like the chargers Phillip Rivers they lost Darren Sproles which will hurt the depth, and special teams If Ryan Matthews stays healthy I think they can run with anybody.

2011 NCAA COLLEGE FOOTBALL PREDICTIONS

BIG 12

1. OKLAHOMA-They got it all pretty much everything you need to have on a national championship team. I expect them to be conference champs but No national championship cause I feel they gonna lose their last game @ Oklahoma St. in the Bedlam game. And I don’t see the voters putting any team that loses their last game in the National Title game.

2. TEXAS- Everybody loves to bag on Garrett Gilbert (watch the video below) But the people who I hear it the most from is people who A.) go to UT and know nothing bout football, B.) people who don’t even watch UT’s Football games and C.) People who would hate on UT no matter who their quarterback is. Everybody seems to want Case McCoy (Colt’s lil bro)to get a chance. But that isn’t gonna happen. If there is a change its gonna be True Freshman David Ash (Belton H.S.)Then with two different coordinators that would be a step back, But nearly every team in tin the top half of he big 12 has either a new offensive coordinator or defensive coordinator. The main problem last year they had was the offensive line. But they have their pick of the litter the past couple of years and those guys are gonna be sophomores and with true freshman Malcolm Brown running the ball its gonna be a good year for them. The receivers they graduated or for whatever reason not on the team any more Malcolm Williams (quit “family”) James Kirkendoll (grad) Marquise Goodwin (track) last year dropped way too many balls. The sophomores and freshman receivers this year wont be dropping many Jaxon Shipley (jordan’s lil bro) is gonna be a star. The front 7 on D will be as good as any front 7 in the country. They gonna be young in the secondary but there are some freshman that will step up.

WATCH THIS VIDEO (it tries to degrade Gilbert, but every INT in the video bounces or hit a receiver in the hands, and every sack is an unblocked blitzer, 1 sack in this video was Gilbert’s fault.

3. OKLAHOMA STATE With the players the have been coming down to Houston and plucking players things should looking up this year I still say they are gonna beat OU in that last game at home. Justin Blackmon will probably be a top 10 pick in next years draft check him out. But I really think the loss of Dana Holgerson hurts they brought in someone that is going to run the same offense, but they don’t have much experience with the system

4. TEXAS A&M This is gonna have to be the year for Texas A&M, If they don’t finish in the top 10 and finish with a major bowl, I think Sherman is gone, and its gonna be kinda sad cause the true freshman this year and this years high school seniors that are already committed to A&M for next year are special. But here is what I think gonna happen to Texas A&M. A&M is gonna struggle right out the gate. The SMU game is close, people start rumbling. Then comes a loss to either Oklahoma State or Arkansas or both Ryan Tannehill who is a pretty good QB is gonna struggles in those games. Pressure is on then Ryan gets subbed for by true freshman Johnny Manziel who I think very highly of, hes scrappy he is a winner he gets the job done He should be playing some this year cause next year he is the man. But with the losses I expect them to have and the expectations from their fan base. Sherman will be gone and it could possibly ruin there recruiting class namely Matt Davis the Klein Forest QB, particularly if Manziel does as well as I think he will

5. BAYLOR Robert Griffin III will some pull off a couple of upsets this year

NO TITLE GAME OU over Nebraska OU over Nebraska

SEC Championship

2011 PICK: South Carolina over Alabama

2010 PICK: Alabama over Florida ACTUAL RESULT: Auburn over South Carolina

I think this is the year for the OL’ Ball Coach Steve Spurrier, no matter who is at QB Stephen Garcia or Connor Bray. The play @ Georgia in Week 2. Georgia is gonna have to replace some playmakers they will probably be depending on a true freshman at running back and they have no depth at RB the youngsters they have may not be ready for this type of atmosphere so early. So I like South Carolina in that one then their next toughest game will be hosting Florida and the Ol Ball Coach will find a way to get them past his former team, and into the SEC title game. Where I predict they will play a stout Alabama team will be with a new QB, whoever gets the Job will be seasoned by the time this game rolls around but will do so leaning heavily on the run game.

CONFERENCE USA

2011 PICK: SMU over Southern Miss

2010 PICK: Houston over Southern Miss. ACTUAL RESULT: Central Florida over SMU

I like the former QB at Southlake Carroll Kyle Padron this year, even though Houston got Case Keenum back for a 6th year after getting injured. But I think SMU has it this year and June Jones the SMU coach will be on most the list to replace fired coaches at the end of the season.

MAC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME

2011 PICK: Miami (OH) over Western Michigan

2010 PICK: Temple over Toledo ACTUAL RESULT: Miami (OH) over Northern Illinois

Later on in the year this Conference plays games on Tuesdays and Wednesdays Miami has got to figure out who their QB is they both played last year. Zac Dysert I think will play cause he more mobile but both of them can play

ACC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME

2011 PICK: Florida State over Virginia Tech

2010 PICK: Florida State over Virginia Tech ACTUAL RESULT: Virginia Tech over Florida St.

Same ole song with this conference N.C. State has a NFL quarterback in Mike Glennon, FSU has a quarterback EJ Manuel who played well when Ponder was hurt. He could be doing vince young type stuff by years end. FSU has to much coming back to not pick them but NC State could be here. Virginia Tech replacing a not of NFL talent, but they are the pick not so much because of the players they have but because of the other team in their division. Miami not while Jacory Harris is their QB, North Carolina not with all that turmoil around that school. Georgia Tech not with that offense (Option) I hate it!!! Virginia nope and Duke should stick to basketball so Virginia Tech is the team by default.

Mountain West Conference (no championship game)

2011 PICK: Boise State

2010 PICK: TCU, ACTUAL RESULT: TCU

Boise State moves into this conference from the WAC, Their main worry is TCU who won the conference last year but is replacing a lot of players. Boise St. big challenge comes opening weekend going to Georgia, The whole season will be dependent on them winning that game. I hope they don’t cause then the rest of the year on ESPN and all those other channels we will have to hear the “do they belong” debate I’m not saying they do or they don’t I just hope they don’t cause I don’t want to hear about them all year.

BIG 10 Conference

2011 Pick: Nebraska over Penn State

2010 Pick: Iowa (no champ game) ACTUAL RESULT: Ohio St.

I don’t think anyone in the Big 10 can knock off Nebraska they do have tough road game @ Penn State and at Michigan and at Wisconsin. But If Taylor Martinez stays healthy I think the can run the table

PAC 12 conference

2011 PICK: Oregon over Arizona (USC will win the south, but cant play in title game, so Arizona will come from the south)

2010 Pick: Oregon (no champ game) ACTUAL RESULT: Oregon

Oregon is still stacked on offense will have to replace some defensive line pieces. Andrew Luck could pull an upset of Oregon when Oregon travels there but Stanford lost to many playmakers on offense and their head coach from last year is gone to the NFL. But for Andrew Luck to put up 40+ on anyone wouldn’t surprise me if they win a shootout. USC will be playing this game like its their National Championship game cause they are banned from post season play this year. But I feel Oregon could be playing for a spot in the National Championship game and will give the USC something they cant handle. The thing I don’t like that these two teams play each other in mid November and would have to turn around and play again 3 weeks later.

Big East Conference (no title game)

2011 PICK: West Virginia

2010 PICK: Pitt Panthers ACTUAL RESULT: Connecticut

I think Dana Holgerson who came over from Oklahoma St. is gonna do a great job over at West Virginia don’t like the way he got the job but he got it. He has all the pieces to work his offense with and he is already getting Texas kids to commit there Houston Kinkaid Ford Childress is a quarterback committed there and will be there in 2012.

HEISMAN TROPHY

2011 PICK: Trent Richardson RB Alabama

2010 PICK: Jaquizz Rodgers ACTUAL WINNER: Cam Newton

Trent has I believe 4 or all 5 of his lineman back In not sure, but anyways Alabama is gonna be breaking in a new Quarterback neither of which I’m too impressed with, but there is a reason their going to Alabama so you know both of them are good, But they are going to lean heavy on the run and Trent is a beast and will receive the majority of the carries no longer having to split carries with Mark Ingram

NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP GAME

2011 PICK: OREGON over NEBRASKA

2010 PICK: Alabama Over Oregon ACTUAL RESULT: Auburn over Oregon

OK Might Be one of the dumbest things I’ve done by not putting a SEC team in the National Championship game. Oregon is the pick this year,That week one match-up with LSU is gonna be scary for them. Nebraska moving to the BIG 10 should make life a lil easier for them not having to deal with the speed and the athletes you got down here. Taylor Martinez is a fast agile QB and you seen what one of those can do to big 10 defenses with what Denard Robinson did at Michigan last year. Nebraska also has Plano H.S. Running back Rex Burkhead. Nebraska also has a stout D. I think they are “Taylor Made” to run through the Big 10 this year. Only Question is do you put in a Undefeated Nebraska or a one loss SEC team (My Pick: South Carolina, or a Alabama) then Boise State if they can win @ Georgia in Week 1 they are in the drivers seat to be undefeated as well it will come down to the voters

TOES’ WEEK 7 NFL, COLLEGE, HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL PREDICTIONS

WEEK 7 NFL, COLLEGE, HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL PREDICTIONS

PREVIOUS WEEKS REVIEW/RANDOM THOUGHTS

  • I guess I’ll start off with the Tomball game, great crowd and that about the only thing you can say good about it. I still dont see why Tomball didnt put in some Temporary bleachers behind the endzone! The crowd was way to big for that stadium. People standing in the isles, and Tomball people had to go over to the Collins side that was overflow as well. So I have no clue as to why there was no temporary bleachers set up. The Woodlands had the smarts to do it for their game against Lufkin over 11,000 in a soldout stadium Friday. If Tomball people dont like being viewed as a sub par program do the little things that other schools do. Average people who dont have kids playing or in band arent going to go to the games if its a hassle or impossible to find somewhere to sit, not that going to 42-0 games is enticing either but the sitting arrangement didnt help the cause.

  • As for the game itself The energy from the big crowd from it disappeared bout 4 seconds into the game as the opening kickoff was fumbled and Klein Collins turned it into a TD, Then a couple of drops and ONE 1st down the whole game. I dont know if this was much of a let down as compared to a wake up call, Its not going to get any easier, as this was the 1st game of 4 in a row of the teams in my preseason picks to make the playoffs in this district. But anyways here the a video of the highlights or lowlights from the game Friday Its a handheld camera so its not very good but you can see how large the crowd is on the Tomball side, and really that was the only thing worth seeing

  • Is there anything Andrew Luck cant do!!! WOW BIG HIT!!!!

  • Woodlands vs Lufkin was yet another classic battle from a SOLD OUT , Woodforest Stadium, and unlike Tomball, The Woodlands had the smarts to put in Temporary Bleachers behind the endzone. Lasco returned from injury with a vengeance. Rushing for over 160 yards and a couple of TD’s Which was good to see because at the state 7on7 tourney over the summer that Lufkin team was really talking trash about what was going to happen to him, when they played this season. Lufkin was a lil short handed with their star RB being out with an injury But with the talent they have the couldnt have been much drop off. But watch the highlights below

Good to see LSU win with two Texans and I consider them Houston players cause they are close QB Jarrett Lee (Brenham, H.S) and Terrence Tolliver (Hempstead. H.S.) both on the game winning play and how bout that fake field goal!!

Just like last week with South Carolina vs Alabama, The number one ranked team is going into hostile territory. And another upset is a real possibility Here is the write up from espn.com

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The Ohio State Buckeyes have waltzed through their first six opponents on the way to becoming No. 1.
With a game on Saturday at No. 18 Wisconsin, staying there will be much harder.
“It’s good to be No. 1, but if we don’t play like it every week, then all the hype will be for naught,” linebacker Brian Rolle said.
Not everyone believes the Buckeyes deserve to be No. 1. Critics point out that by the middle of October, the Buckeyes have played exactly one game away from their home stadium. Also, they haven’t tackled anyone currently ranked in the Associated Press Top 25. (Miami was 12th at the time they lost in Columbus to the Buckeyes, but has since plummeted out of sight.)
At the same time, Ohio State fans are up in arms that mock Bowl Championship Series rankings a week before the first BCS list is released has the Buckeyes fifth. That is due to being downgraded by computers that take a dim view of the Buckeyes’ (lack of) strength of schedule (Marshall, Ohio, Eastern Michigan, Illinois, Indiana and Miami) and drop them way down below the TCUs and Boise States of the world in that category.
But a lot of the questions and doubts about Ohio State (6-0, 2-0 Big Ten) and its rise to the top spot in the polls should be answered this week when the Buckeyes head for Madison, Wis.
The Badgers (5-1, 1-1) are good and particularly good at home. They’ve gone 40-4 at Camp Randall Stadium since the start of the 2004 season. What’s more, the game is at night, allowing an already rambunctious student section to get even more fired up for the big showdown. The Badgers have won 25 of their last 28 night games.
Linebacker Ross Homan said, “Playing there is so tough. You have to battle through a lot.”
An environment like that intimidates some opponents and energizes others.
“I remember we went to Wisconsin my sophomore year,” Rolle said, reflecting on the 2008 game. “It was ridiculous. I believe that student section is the best in the country.”
The product on the field isn’t bad, either.
Led by senior quarterback Scott Tolzien and tailbacks John Clay and James White, the Badgers are physical and tough and rank fourth in he Big Ten in total offense at 450 yards per game. It’ll be a huge test for Ohio State’s defense in particular.
“They know what they’re heading into,” Ohio State coach Jim Tressel said.
Buckeyes quarterback Terrelle Pryor shared Big Ten offensive player of the week honors with Clay, passing for a career-high 334 yards (24 of 30, 3 TDs) in a 38-10 rout of Indiana. Wisconsin is a red-letter game for him and his teammates.
“Without a doubt,” he said. “It’s always circled on the calendar — especially when it’s at Camp Randall. Every Big Ten game is a challenge. The last time I was there, it was a great experience for me.”
Pryor was a callow freshman, making just his third collegiate start, at Wisconsin in 2008. He led the Buckeyes on two fourth-quarter scoring drives, capped by his own 11-yard touchdown sprint around left end with 1:08 remaining, to end Wisconsin’s 16-game home winning streak, 20-17.
The game also means a lot to Wisconsin, which has only lost to No. 13 Michigan State two weeks ago. One more defeat and the Badgers will be pretty much out of the Big Ten title hunt.
“It’s going to be a huge step up (in competition), just because year in and year out, those guys are the best of the best,” Tolzien said. “They’re super talented and really well coached and physical and all those things that great teams are. We’re going to have our hands full, and we truly need to really lock in.”
Pryor has never forgotten the crowd as it danced, leaped and swayed in unison to the “Jump Around” song heading into the fourth quarter.
“The place JUMPS,” he said with a grin, shaking his head.
It’s the kind of atmosphere — “Jump Around” is performed by the aptly named House of Pain — that No. 1 teams have to get used to on the road.

WELL WITH IT BEING A NIGHT GAME YOU KNOW THE STUDENT SECTION IS GONNA BE TANKED SO THIS TRADITION SHOULD BE ESPECIALLY CRAZY CHECK IT OUT

HIGH SCHOOL GAME OF THE WEEK

KLEIN COLLINS TIGERS (6-0) vs KLEIN BEARKATS (6-0)

Keshawn Hill, Klein RB                 David Santos, Klein Collins LB
                                                              (Nebraska Commit)

Seem like every week there is a game of the week in this district. Klein in my opinion has the best chance to beat Klein Collins, Klein plays real smart dont make a lot of mistakes no penalties no turnovers, ball control offense. Klein didnt really look too impressive at the game I was at last week against Spring. Klein should be able to handle them but I’ll take Collins in a close one

TOES PICK:
KLEIN : 21
KLEIN COLLINS: 24

TOMBALL COUGARS (5-1) vs DEKANEY WILDCATS (5-1)
7PM FRIDAY OCT. 15TH GEORGE STADIUM (SPRING)

Tomball Malcolm ScottPhotobucket
Tomball Malcolm Scott (SR Safety)                                   Dekaney Trey Williams (Junior RB)

Dekaney comes into this game with revenge on their mind with what happened last year in Tomball, you can actually say that game was why Dekaney was sitting at home during playoff time. Tomball looked downright awful last week against a much superior opponent. Dekaney comes in off an impressive victory over Klein Oak. Dekaney in my preseason picks (which you can see if you scroll all the way down) I picked to finish 2nd in the district, when most places had them pick 5th or 6th. So I really like Dekaney more than others. Dekaney has also played that same team that throttled Tomball, Klein Collins, against Klein Collins Dekaney had them on the ropes leading by a Touchdown with 5 minutes to play before giving up 2 late touchdown passes of 56 and 84 yards to lose by a touchdown. And Junior Running Back Trey Williams had over 200 yards rushing against them with Tomball as a team had something like 20. Dekaney isnt much on passing the ball. But they do have a slippery QB and the last time Tomball played a good agile QB was Spring and they had trouble stopping him. So I think that puts some real pressure on them. The two safeties are going to have tackle well and turn those would be 50-60 yard touchdown runs into 7-8 yard gains, and last week they didnt do that. But most the season they have been doing that so Im optimistic that they can here but this will be the best RB they face all year. On offense Tomball should be able to have their moments. But I dont think it will be enough to keep up with Dekaney

TOES PICK:
TOMBALL: 17
DEKANEY: 38

COLLEGE GAME OF THE WEEK

Texas H.S. Texarkana                                                  Florida/Blinn College Transfer

Auburn is coming in barely escaping at Kentucky last week with a Victory. Arkansas only scores 24 points on Texas A&M last week. Last year matchup saw Arkansas blow out Auburn 44-23, But Cam Newton has been leading an offense by running with his legs, and surprisingly throwing the ball as well. I guess it shouldnt be too surprised the Florida folks seen his arm strength when he threw the stolen laptop from his dorm room window when campus police was knocking on the door to search his room and that led to him getting kicked out, and then going to Brenham to Blinn College Cam Newton though has played pretty well since leaving Florida, But these close calls arent going to go their way every week. But my numbers are saying bet Auburn (-3.5), and its rare that I bet a favorite in the SEC so we will see how this one goes

Roy Williams Cowboys WR                                                Randy Moss Vikings WR

What was supposed to be a NFC Champioship preview has been reduced to a Battle to keep playoff hopes alive, Dallas comes in off a devastating loss to my Tennessee Titans and like usual people are screaming for Wade Phillips head. But here is one thing I can pretty much promise, and that is the time of Wade Phillips being fired, and that is the week of the Super Bowl, cause Jerry Jones is an attention whore and wants to take away from the teams that will be playing in the Super Bowl cause the Cowboys certainly wont be there. As for the game this week I like the Vikings

Stratford High School (Houston)                                      Aldine High School (Houston)

Once again just like last week the game of the Week has 2 top 10 ranked teams meeting up. And just like last weeks top 10 game this weeks game is also led by Quarterbacks from Texas and this one both of the quarterbacks are from Houston!! Stanford and Oregon come into this one hot as can be. Oregon struggled with Arizona State. Stanford QB Andrew Luck is ne of the leaders for the Heisman, Its game like this where you win or lose those awards.Oregon also has one of the best home field advantages in all of college football, that place gets crazy Oregon has Darron Thomas at quarterback out of Houston Texas, and he has led the Number one offense in the country and he has been doing it with his legs and his arm. Luck is the best QB in the country. But Oregon was my preseason pick to be in the National Championship game. So Im gonna roll with Oregon to win in this one. But 7 points is to many points to give to Andrew Luck so bet Stanford (+7)

TOES PICK
STANFORD : 31
OREGON: 35

HIGH SCHOOL PICKS

TOMBALL COUGARS(4-0) vs SPRING LIONS (2-2)
4pm SATURDAY, George Stadium (spring)

Tomball Montrell Logan Spring Lions

TOMBALL WR Montrell Logan                Spring QB Greg Livingston

Tomball for the 2nd week in a row plays a team with a potential QB situation. Greg Livingston #19 who has been hurt did not play last week. Now Im pretty sure its nothing serious and he should play this week. His back up PJ Kopesky who was the QB last year played last week and they quickly got behind to Dekaney. Spring’s has a new coach this year he runs a spread option offense. I havent seen them play this year. But This years QB #19 Livingston was a wide receiver last year and he was pretty good there and thats where he will play in college. He seems to be putting up decent numbers rushing On Defense they haven’t really slowed anybody down they do have a DE Brandon Bennett #45 that is committed to Oregon State. Where they have struggled is stopping the run. In there their two losses Spring gave up huge numbers to Spring’s Trey Williams over 200 yards and 2 TD’s and Montgomery’s Leroy Dobbins had similar numbers. Both Tomball and Spring have played Morton Ranch and both scored 40 something points on them and held them to 14 or under. On offense Tomball’s run game came out the closet last week. As a team running for over 200 yards, by RB duo Green#24 and Angelle #25. Tomball didnt have any costly turnovers. The passing game wasnt where it needs to be last week, but they made timely catches to keep drives going.

TOES PICK:
TOMBALL: 38
SPRING: 17

2:30 Saturday October 2nd, Cotton Bowl (Dallas TX)

texas garrett gilbert Oklahoma Demarco Murray

TEXAS GARRETT GILBERT                                    OKLAHOMA DEMARCO MURRAY

Texas comes into this one with huge disappointing loss to UCLA, Oklahoma has stuggles to put teams they should easily beat away with the exception of Florida State. Texas cant really seem to do anything consistently on offense. As has been the case all year the receivers drop balls and last week TE started dropping balls (3 I think) the running backs cant do anything the line isnt blocking anyone and then, all the sudden last week they could stop the run on defense. As I said at the beginning of the year without Gilbert this is a 6-6 team . With Gilbert this is one I cant see him doing anything in. Unless the freshman receivers come through. But I’ll take Oklahoma (-3.5) in this one

TOES PICK
TEXAS : 14
OKLAHOMA: 35

#1 Alabama Crimson Tide(-9.5) vs #7 Florida Gators (+9.5)
Saturday 7pm Bryant-Denny Stadium Alabama

Alabama Julio Jones Janorice Jenkins Florida
Alabama Julio Jones WR            Florida Janorice Jenkins CB

Another game with 2 top 10 teams. Alabama has looked like a defending National Championship team should look. Florida has stuggled with a new QB and a center that has real trouble snapping the ball in shotgun. It doesnt look good for Florida, Maybe there could be a Tebow effect in this game. They current Florida players should remember last years game vs Alabama and how they were dancin on Floridas field doing the Gator chomp while Tebow was tearing up on the Florida sideline. Maybe Tebow could even show up before the game and give one of those speeches!! The Broncos play in Nashville and the game is in Alabama. Maybe they will let him make a quick trip but leave before the game is over, but I doubt it. The thing to watch will be #1 Janorice Jenkins a florida Cornerback vs #8 for Alabama Julio Jones. Those two guys will be selected in the 1st 15 picks of the NFL draft coming up and If one of them excels against each other that will make them a lot of money come April. But betting wise to me the SEC is a lot like the NFL If I get double digits in points I will take the points. 9.5 is close so hopefully that will get moved to 10 before Kickoff So for now take Florida (+9.5)
