What we’ve been working on:
Last week on the podcast the Heisman Pundit joined us to give his wisdom and look into his crystal ball for the 2009 Heisman Race. This week on the podcast we will be joined by Peter Bean of Burnt Orange Nation and EDSBS Live. Peter will be sharing his infinite wisdom on Texas Longhorn and Big 12 Football. I suspect there will be a few Oklahoma jokes thrown in at some point.
Adam continues his Top 50 Non-BCS player count down. At #28, weak side linebacker Michael Sisson of Colorado State makes the list. Don't let his 5-foot-11 frame fool you, because this Mountain West All-Freshman team member packs a punch. Quarterback Kellen Moore of Boise State makes the list at #27. We'll get to see what the Broncos are made of on opening night when they travel to play Oregon.
While not writing for ITB, Adam continues to keep Navy fans content with his articles on GoMids.com. This week he talks to Navy fullback Alex Teich. Teich explains to Adam that while he hopes to have the same success that former fullback Eric Kettani had, he won't be the straight ahead runner that Navy fans are use to having. What kind of runner will he be? Check out Adam's article to find out.
Besides getting the new site ready to launch, I did take some time to look at two recent transfers from USC. Both left the Trojans because they wanted to be closer to a sick relative, but only one doesn't have to sit out this year.
