Alabama's Ingram probably won't play (recovering from injury). Couple that with their best D-lineman being scratched and it might make this game a little more interesting.

However, it is nice to see some real games on the schedules versus some of the cupcakes the NCAA served up last week.

AB, what's your take on Ponder, first round pick?

yeah, I think right now he is a 1st rd pick, I have him as my 4th best QB.

He has great intangibles, the production is there, 2006: Redshirted. 2007: (1/0) 8 of 18 (44.4 pct.), 105 yards, 1 TD, 2 INT. 2008: (13/13) 177 of 318 (55.7), 2,006 yards, 14 TD, 13 INT. 2009: (9/9) 227 of 330 (68.8), 2,717 yards, 14 TD, 7 INT. Career: 196 carries, 653 yards (3.3 avg.), 6 TD.

While his disadvantages or weaknesses are His Decision making, and Arm Strength/Accuracy.

If he wants to be a top 15 pick, which I believe he can be, he better have a great 2010.

I would not mind Ponder if Alex fails. Ponder is one of my favorite QB's in this draft class along with Locker and Luck, not as high on Mallet as some are. I dont like tall QB's for some reason.

Yeah, I'll be following him closely this year to get a real good gauge. It sounds like he'll be available around where we'll be picking so if we go Qb he maybe the choice.

yeah, I can see him being picked by us, i wouldnt mind it at all. Like i said im more high on Ponder than Mallet.

I even like the delaware kid, Devlin. Could be a joe flacco type.

Myself and Justin(jreff22) had Devlin to Minnesota in rd 1 late, but its an early mock and annything and everything likely happens.
I forgot to put down tonights game, WVU and Marshall. Eric Dobson with a huge TD Catch.

Here are my fav for each team.

WVU:

Noel Devine
Robert Sands
Jock Sanders

MARSHALL:

Vinny Curry
Mario Harvey

look out for both Harvey and Curry(who is #99)
what a game Marshall/West Virginia.

after being down 14-6 at Half, WVU has come back forced OT, and scored a FG to take a 24-21 lead.

Devine rushed for 112 yard so far with a TD in regulation.

Great list of prospects, i have Ponder QB nr 1 out of all the SR quarterbacks. At this time i would take Ponder over Locker. I truly think that Ponder is gonna have an amazing 2010.

Quarterbacks: SR

1. Christian Ponder - QB - Florida State

2. Jake Locker - QB - Washington

3. Pat Devlin - QB - Delaware

First time looking at Ponder, looks the part, decent arm, good accuracy and seems to have good mobility. Hope he's there for us if we go QB next year.
Andrew Luck is playing right now against UCLA, I wanna see how he does against the pass rush of Akeem Ayers, and the great S Rahim Moore.
Can't watch the SC game. How does Ras-I Dowling look tonight?
