    Actually I don't think his analysis is too bad.

    A & M is a tough place to play...

    Can't say I really disagree with much he has to say about ISU. I think 6-6 is best case, so predicting 5-7 isn't that far off. We need to prove we can win a conference game on the road before any media members will believe it.

    Re: Tim Griffin....

    It does show how little he's looked into it. Arnaud does not have a "nagging" injury. He hurt his hand, and missed one half. Could he hurt it again? Of course, but it's not at all the same thing that's happening to A-Rob. And even he's playing fine.

    That said, we need to get other RBs into the game. If A-Rob was to be finished for the season, Schwartz can't carry the load the whole way.

    I hate Griffin as much as the next guy, but I'm not exactly seeing what was so incorrect about his blog. This time.


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.

    Re: Tim Griffin....

    I remember the last time we beat Nebraska, Kirk Herbstreit(sp) was back-peddaling so fast, he couldn't come up with a valid excuse for the loss. He couldn't admit Neb. got beat by a better team.

    Another thing I don't like about his analysis is that he say our offense will be the reason we will not be able to hang in the Big12 the rest of the way. I would say our consistency and lack of overall tallent on defense, especially the line, is our biggest concern.

    The best rushing offense in the conference and a recently improving passing offense are actually why I think we will win at least 2 more games.

    Re: Tim Griffin....

    The W-L record isnt too far off... i see it as:
    Should be disappointed if we dont beat: Colorado
    Should beat, but given our history on the road, be very happy if it happens: TAMU
    And should be able to be competitive in the remainder of the games, giving an outside shot to win.
    This is pretty similar to what he said on the blog.

    If you don't like him, don't read his blog.
