This week we get some good time action with friend of the program Luke Zimmermann on the show talking about this week's eight games to watch. Of course you know Luke from his work over the years at Eleven Warriors the Ohio State blog and now of Everyday Should Be Saturday fame. A Buckeye at heart we've got the big man on showing his range as we get real heavy into the games from around the nation.
Before we get into the show we talk Eleven Warriors Tailgate, a big even in Columbus this weekend where 100% of the proceeds go to the Stephanie Spielman foundation for breast cancer. Great cause.
Oddly enough even with the big games going on this weekend somehow November 5th finds a way to sneak into the conversation as Luke and I also drop some BCS thoughts.
November Fifth will come folks, but first, your week nine slate:
This Big East game lost a little luster as both teams fell last Friday night but given the oddities of the league they're still very much in the running. The World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party doesn't have quite the national title implications of recent history but this is still a big deal and Florida is in desperate need of a win Saturday. Michigan State takes on the Huskers in a game that will likely decide the Legends side of things in the Big Ten. Clemson is funny, we're all waiting on them to fall and Georgia Tech in Atlanta has folks jumping all over it thinking "this is the week."
Out west Stanford gets to prove how legit their defense is against a USC team that has weapons on offense. Baylor and Oklahoma State should be another Big XII score-a-thon. Oklahoma must rebound against Kansas State and old man infused Wildcats. Then we get to Wisconsin taking on Ohio State, a game that oddly enough Luke the Ohio State guy needs me to put a positive spin on. I see areas of opportunities for the Buckeyes against Wisconsin it is just a matter of if they can capitalize.
