Get Ready Now Colossal Battle of Black Quarterbacks Coming Saturday Leak vs. Russell
GET READY NOW COLOSSAL BATTLE OF BLACK QUARTERBACKS COMING SATURDAY LEAK VS. RUSSELL FLORIDA (5) VS. LSU (9) AND HOW ABOUT THE MIGHTY DUCKS AND OTHERS TOO
JAMARCUS RUSSELL BEST PERFORMANCE EVER LAST SATURDAY VS. MISS. STATE
Are you ready for
Well you should begin now preparing yourself. This week’s BIG game is only days away. 5 short days away. This past Saturday both Chris Leak and JaMarcus Russell renewed their Credentials as Two of the Best QBs in College Football today. Both are clear Heisman candidates. In fact Dream of Dream ( that’s why they call them Dreams ) at this point it is “conceivable” ( no we aren’t giving Odds ) there could be FIVE Black Quarterbacks as the 5 Finalists for the Heisman assembling in New York City in early December.
That’s right. #1 Ohio State’s Troy Smith should be there. For sure. Add both Leak and Russell as real possibilities. Do NOT discount now #11 ( maybe in the Top 10 after this Saturday ) Oregon’s Dennis Dixon, and add one more #4 West Virginia’s Pat White. DO NOT DO NOT count out this most improbable even beyond historic which it would be convergence taking place.
Standing in the Way
may be Saturday’s
Best Match Up
While it will be THE game of the week. Florida and Leak battling LSU and Russell one of these teams will fall as the other rises to Glory. Were LSU to Upset #5 Florida it would propel LSU now 4-1 into the Top 5 probably but tumble now #5 Florida 5-0 back down toward #10. IF Florida prevails they may climb even higher. For LSU a Loss would end their Top 10 Quest and take JaMarcus Russell out of the Picture. For sure.
From a Heisman perspective
Which is really about taking Black QBs to the next level IF they were to dominate the 2006 Heisman – the best outcome Saturday would be a high scoring OT Victory for LSU keeping both teams in the Top 10 and with Leak and Russell maintaining their status as Premier College QBs.
As for the Other Three Saturday. #1 Presumptive Favorite for the National Title Ohio State takes on Bowling Green which had better be a Laugher for them and with Troy Smith passing and running up Big Numbers. #4 West Virginia also has a ‘light’ game against unranked Mississippi State and for QB Pat White an opportunity to fatten up pass and run Stats for Master Heisman.
And then there is
QB Dennis Dixon
and his Mighty Ducks
from Oregon way
One of this season’s ( as last season’s ) very very interesting stories. To everyone’s surprise the University of Oregon finished #13 last season. If not for there one regular season loss to #1 USC in late September. Had they gone Undefeated and beaten USC well it would have been yes Texas and Oregon battling for the National Title last January. Just to keep that in Perspective.
This season …
Coming into October the Ducks led by Black QB Dennis Dixon are 4-0 and face a Worthy Opponent Saturday #16 California. An impressive V for the Ducks very likely takes them from #11 into the Big Ten of the AP Poll. Possible Upsets by Alabama against #2 Auburn or by #!4 Oklahoma over #7 Texas or Michigan State over rivals #6 Michigan – a not impossible Upset in one of those 3 Big Games combined with an Oregon Win could really Skew the Top 10.
All this is Why
