I'm tucked up in the rainy corner of the country in Seattle. The weekend is over and so is my anger at the Pac-10 officals calling our game. So, I figured it was time for the trash talk to begin. It seems from what I've been reading that everybody is picking OU to run right over my beloved Huskies. And while I can't seem to rationalize a terribly strong argument to contradict that sentiment, I can present to you Jake Locker. A do it all QB with more athelticisim than Tim Tebow and a natural leadership quality you cannot teach. I don't know how many of the readers of this blog are diehards who check up on scouting reports of the upcoming opponents, but to those of you who haven't seen what Jake can do, take heed.
I realize your offense is bar none, the most complete unit in the country. I fully expect the Sooners to hang at least 35-45 on the Dawgs this weekend. But our fast, athletic, young offense is starting to come together; and if they can get motivated after such a tragic ending last Saturday, your defense could be in trouble. I urge you all to watch some Jake Locker highlight videos, and read up on Fr. WR Jordan Polk who runs a 10.63 100m. Or 6'6" 255lb. TE Kevario Middleton, who is quickly becoming one of the better TE's in the conference, after only 2 games. This group may not be anything special yet; but if your Sooners aren't careful, they could find themselves in a shootout with a very hungry young team. A team that could possible eek out a victroy against a BCS contender.
