Some observations from the weekend from me:</P>-I was at the Backyard Bowl Friday.&#160; Barring injury, Jenks will run the table and win 6A.&#160; The Trojans&rsquo; defensive line looks like a collegiate front four.&#160; Broken Arrow may be the next best team.&#160; I saw them beat Owasso in week one.</P>-Don&rsquo;t think of OSU&rsquo;s new offense as Texas Tech&rsquo;s old offense.&#160; Mike Gundy and Dana Holgorsen have said this will be Oklahoma State&rsquo;s version of the offense Holgorsen had at Texas Tech and Houston.&#160; So far they are right.&#160; And I don&rsquo;t just mean that they utilize the run more.&#160; When you think of Texas Tech, you think dink and dunk.&#160; The Cowboys throw the ball deep more often that Texas Tech did.&#160; Justin Blackmon has been the main recipient.&#160; </P>-The Rams didn&rsquo;t do Sam Bradford any favors on Sunday.&#160; Forcing a rookie to throw 55 passes in his first pro start puts way too much pressure on him.&#160; It&rsquo;s somewhat understandable, however, considering they had to run 81 plays.&#160; The team&rsquo;s clock management in the final minute of the game was pitiful.&#160; They lost at least 30 seconds of game time by failing to call a timeout.</P>&#160;-I didn&rsquo;t&#160; see every game Saturday, but the two most eye-popping players I saw were Michigan quarterback Denard &ldquo;Shoelace&rdquo; Robinson and South Carolina true freshman running back Marcus Lattimore.&#160; Robinson vaulted into the top 3 of the Heisman race with 502 total yards, including 258 rushing in the Wolverines&rsquo; win over Notre Dame.&#160; Lattimore had 182 yards and 2 touchdowns in the Gamecocks&rsquo; win.&#160; How good is he?&#160; Steve Spurrier let Lattimore carry the ball 37 TIMES!&#160; </P>&#160;</P>&#160;</P><BR/>
