I'll be in Michigan Stadium
watching the Wolverines playing the Broncos, but I'm going to be very interested to see how the Notre Dame-Nevada game plays out.
Notre Dame is a good team and their schedule is ridiculously easy compared to previous years. There's certainly a lot of pressure on Michigan this week, but there's pressure on Charlie Weis too.
And I'm telling you guys right now that this is probably going to be the finest Nevada football team to hit the field in Chris Ault's long career there. This hype is mainly due to the guy pictured above, dual-threat quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
Kaepernick threw for 2,850 yards last year, 22 TDs and 7 TDs. Then also decided to run around and drive opponents nuts with 1,170 yards rushing, 17 rushing touchdowns with a 7 yard per carry average!
So yeah, Notre Dame might beat the Wolfpack on Saturday, but I'm going to be verrrry interested to see how the Irish defense of Tenuta deals with Kaepernick and his favorite running back Vai Taua out of Ault's Pistol Offense.
