The toilet bowl
Two of the sorriest Division 1A teams in the country will battle it out with offenses that wouldn't scare Mother Teresa. Tech's defense, which gave up almost 500 rushing yards against San Jose last week, could be just what the doctor ordered for the apathetic Mean Green offense. The Bulldogs are so bad on defense that they made the Spartans look like Clemson.
Last year, San Jose was 3-8, while losing 52-21 to San Diego State and 31-14 to Tech. This year, the Bulldogs look worse than the 2005 Spartans. Where the 2006 season went awry for the Bulldogs is hard to say. They can't block, can't tackle, can't cover receiers, can't throw the ball, can't catch it and have only run the ball well one time. They don't appear to have any talent (young or old) and their coaching is woeful.
Tech is a 3-point "dog" against a North Texas team that is 2-6 with impressive (not) wins over SMU and Florida International. If the Bulldogs lose this one, they might as well pack it in for the season.
