More weekend football thoughts

"Go Katrina!"

That's what one Arkansas Razorbacks fan yelled at a group of my buddies who attended Friday's LSU game in Little Rock.

Real classy. I wonder what he was yelling after the game was over?

USC's John David Booty outplayed Notre Dame's Brady Quinn on Saturday -- the passing stats of the two were similar, but Booty's team prevailed.

The hype "The not-so-mighty" Quinn is receiving for Heisman Trophy consideration should go to Booty -- he's played well all season against better competition (remember the Irish played Army, Navy and Air Force and would have played Coast Guard if they fielded a team). I still think the Heisman will go to Ohio State QB Troy Smith -- he's pretty good. Hogs RB Darren McFadden should also be in the mix.

Do you think Texas coach Mack Brown will still be complaining about the polls after his Longhorns' loss to the Texas A&M Aggies? Probably.

Big game today for the New Orleans Saints, who face the Atlanta Falcons on the road. The Saints must win to stay in the NFC South race. Should be a good one.
