Rave: Watched the Indianapolis v. CIncy game today. Amazing. Not so good if you are a fan of defense - this was an offensive showcase. And I think the formula for beating the Colts is obvious. You simply have to make no mistakes and score a touchdown every single time you have the ball.

And while I'm usually one to run the other way when the talking heads start gushing over a player, in the case of Peyton Manning I'm on board. It is mind-boggling watching this guy manage a game. WIth a solid run game anchored by Edgerrin James, an intelligent QB, a top flite receiver in Marvin Harrison and a solid "D", Indy has the ingredients that have propelled other teams to multiple championships.

Rant: The Miami Hurricanes returned to form Saturday in their lost to Georgia Tech. Nothing against the Yellow Jackets. They have been solid all year. But the 'Canes were a shell of the team that dominated Va Tech two weeks ago. And this one is on the coaching staff. Miami lacked a plan for this game, or their plan was "let's have our unproven and erratic QB try to beat a strong defense. Miami has succeeded when they've established the run and kept Kyle Wright from having to do too much. Saturday their feeble rushing attempts seemed insincere at best.

Rave: I'll say one thing for USC - they are tops in the halftime adjustment department. They always seem to win their games handily, yet they've had their first half struggles, including Saturday's battle with Fresno State. They enter the locker room at the half seemingly embroiled in the fight of their lives and come back out and own their opponents.

Rant: Have I mentioned that Lee Corso is a big idiot. Saturday he picked Michigan State over Penn State. Why? Michigan State was supposed to be mad for some reason, and the weather was cold, which was to be "a great equalizer." You know how it is, that cold weather really slows down teams from balmy, tropical paradises like Pennsylvania! Penn State had the game in hand by halftime.
