Weekend Edition

Still no word on the JC's which means that even if they get in on Monday they will have missed all of Fall Camp since next week is Game Week. I am sure these guys can al be plugged in by mid season if neccesary. Wells has been very solid at Safety so Palmer has time to get acclimated and catch up. I can see Mason, and Atkins redshirting.

No Leon Jackson sightings, but the "X" says that he, and his dad were on campus Thursday to meet with Willingham. It will be interesting to see how it play out.

Goals for this week are filling out the back up positions, getting ready for San Jose St, most importantly getting a little rest and staying healthy.

So whats going on around the Pac Ten?

Let's check out the blog's of the Pac Ten and our opponents.

This is going to be an interesting week for me, next weekend is my wedding so I don't know how much time I will have to write this week after Wednesday, and I know I will miss a good part of the game since we will be listening in on XM radio during wedding photo's.

The wedding starts at 3:30 Pacific time so hopefully most of it will be decided by the time we have to get our wedding faces on. I don't think Fox is doing replays this year, so not sure how they are going to do it. Hopefully they have something I can record on a DVD so I can watch it on the flight.

On Wednesday we are off to Hawaii for three weeks, and yes we will be able to watch the games and perhaps even log into the Dawgman chatroom while the game is going on if we have internet where the game is being shown. Will be back in Chicago on September 25th which means that we will be watching three games over there. Oklahoma, and Fresno are on TV, and you can bet UCLA will be too, so we should be in good shape. Being able to watch the games has been written into the pre nups.

Aloha!
