What We Learned: College Football’s Week 9

Mack Brown might be in trouble.

You are probably wondering, how could a coach fresh off a National Title berth be in trouble? Well it’s simple, after the Oklahoma game, there were rumblings from Texas boosters who are ready for the Will Muschamp to take over the program. Now Texas is 4-4 after losing to Baylor, so I expect the rumblings to get louder and louder.

This is the Ohio State team I thought we were going to see.

This is the Terelle Pyror that I thought we were going to see coming into the season. After routing Minnesota 52-10 and blowing out an underrated Purdue team 49-0, I think Ohio State will win the remaining of their games this season. I think the beating Wisconsin gave them finally woke them up.

The Alabama-LSU game is big not only for these two teams, but for Auburn as well.

For Alabama, it sets up a showdown with Auburn for a SEC championship and BCS National Title berth on the line. For LSU, they stay 1 game behind Auburn and if Auburn goes to National Title game, LSU will get the at large bid. For Auburn, an LSU win locks up the SEC West and they punch their ticket for Atlanta.

It’s been a tough week for the Fighting Irish.

First a student dies from falling off a tower which will lead to an investigation, and then they lose at home to Tulsa. And yes, I said Tulsa. To make matters worst, Dayne Crist and Armando Allen are both lost for the season. Brian Kelly knew that this wasn’t going to be easy, but I’m sure he didn’t expect this.
