Week 1 Big 12 Observations

First Game Jitters for the new starting QBs?
Breaking in a new QB is supposed to pose problems early in the year. The four newcomers were 4-0 and won by a cumulative margin of 159 points.

Sam Bradford Oklahoma 21 for 23, 363 yards, 3 TDs, W by 69
Todd Reesing Kansas 20 for 29, 261 yards, 4 TDs, W by 45
Sam Keller Nebraska 14 for 25, 193, yards, 1 TD, 1 INT, W by 42
Cody Hawkins Colorado 18 for 31, 201 yards, 2 TDs, 1 INT, W by 3 in OT

Does this picture make me look gay?

Replacing your top 3 WRs at Tech is not a problem
Filani, Johnson, and Hicks were the most talented WR corps at Tech this century yet Pirate Savant Leach does not miss a beat with Crabtree, Amendola, and Morris. At some point, we are all going to realize that it is not about the "who" in that offense.

Gene Chizik is no Larry Eustacy
When your team opens up on a Thursday night un-televised home game against the 7th best college in the state of Ohio and gets rolled, you are not off to a good start. Can someone explain why it makes sense to play a game on Thursday night if not for TV?

The SEC is better than the Big 12
Blinding Glimpse of the Obvious: In a battle of 6 seeds, Georgia beat down Oklahoma State by 21 while Auburn won by 10 over the Purple Cats in come from behind fashion. Meanwhile, I don’t think Missouri is going to have trouble with Ed Orgeron’s Rebels this week.
