    It's almost time......let's get a little chatter going!!!



    My highlight of the year is a trip I've had booked for months now. I'll be making my first visit to Austin, TX and will take in a Longhorns game. To say I'm pretty god damn stoked would be an understatement.

    I've always liked Texas but will never claim to be a long time die hard. My buddy who I've known for 20 years has legitimately loved the 'Horns for as long as I've known him. He'd never been to Austin and it took us all of 2 seconds to check out their schedule and plan a trip. Can't wait to visit Austin and take in the whole scene.



    Other than a couple of not-so-big-time BC games the only big time game I've attended was USC at Arizona State in '05. Pretty special day and damn cool to see Leinart, Bush, White, and the rest of that insane USC team when their winning streak was at 28 games or so.

    Would love to go see a Michigan - Michigan State or OSU game at the Big House with my dad. He went to Michigan back in the early 60's and still follows them to this day.

    As for my Mighty Maryland Terrapins - might try and go to the VA Tech game with my friend since he played wide receiver for them back in the late 90's.

    BREAKING NEWS: Barkley tabbed as starter
    By Ben Malcolmson on August 27, 2009 1:12 PM | 3 Comments

    Matt Barkley has been named USC's starting quarterback, Coach Pete Carroll announced today.

    Set to make history as the first true freshman quarterback to start a USC opener, Barkley earned the job following an impressive spring and fall after enrolling at the university a semester early. Still 18 and just months removed from high school, Barkley won the job over Aaron Corp.

    "It's clear to us as a staff that Matt Barkley is ready to be the starting quarterback at USC," Carroll said. "He has exceeded all our expectations. He has all the physical ability, he has the mentality and temperament to handle the position, his personality is very well received by all the players and he's extremely talented.

    "At this point, he's ready to be the guy for us."

    Barkley will take the reins of the Trojan offense for Saturday's mock game at the Coliseum in anticipation of next week's season opener against San Jose State.

    "We'll utilize this weekend to have Matt learn what it's like to go through preparations as the starter," Carroll said. "For our ability to perform at our very best next week, it helps us to express it now instead of game week."

    After a spring rife with competition, Corp, who was named the starter in April, was temporarily knocked out of the heated battle at the onset of fall training camp, when he cracked the head of his left fibula on Aug. 10 and sat out of full-speed work for two weeks. Wearing a knee brace, he returned to practice Tuesday but will have a limited role in Saturday's end-of-camp scrimmage.

    "Aaron has done a marvelous job of getting back from his injury," Carroll said. "By next Saturday, we'd expect him to be ready to play if needed, but he's not ready yet. The competition will continue at this position, but at this point, Barkley is our starting quarterback."

    Though the competition, as always, will remain open, Carroll stressed that tapping Barkley as the No. 1 quarterback is not a temporary decision.

    "He's the starting quarterback at USC -- it's not a one-game deal," Carroll said. "He seized the opportunity that was in front of him and took control. He deserves all the credit in the world and we expect nothing but great things from him."

    Yeah, not the sexiest matchup, but the trip is really about taking in a Longhorns game in person. We were limited on weekends we could both do it and it worked out perfectly for us to fly back to Phoenix (where my buddy lives) the next day and go to the Cardinals-Colts game on Sunday night. He's a season ticket holder for the 'Cards.

    Besides, most everyone else on Texas' schedule was going to be a very tough ticket to get. Not concerned about finding good seats at a good price for this game.

    The Big 12 should be really good with those QB's coming back.
    Florida is definitely the front-runner in all of College Football.
    Will USC have another great QB among them this year?
