    I don't put much stock into pre-game analysis. It is their job to find a way to hype the game, and they didn't really say anything that wasn't true. Focus AP, running ability, different game plan, etc.

    If you watch the Saturday noon ESPN games, no matter how terrible the matchup is, somone picks the underdog every time.

    "10-0 Ohio versus 1-9 Minnesota, who do you got?"
    "OHIO STATE"
    "OHIO STATE"
    "THE Ohio State"
    *sigh* I think this *pause, stares at desk* could be a really good game and Minnesota will pull off the upset. *sigh*

    It's poor analysis! The packers scored 34 points against the Vikings just a week before and only an idiot would think some green kid who had done nothing all year could bebop his way to that many points.

    I don't know if this poor analysis was motivated by hype, race, culture or style but it was piss poor.

    And why would anybody have to hype the game as exciting as the last game between the 2 teams was a week earlier.

    I think it was a network ploy to garner attention to an already bad situation. How many People would have tuned in if the announcers were like..." Lets get ready to watch a lynching! Joe Webb!!?? Who?? No CHANCE!!! HA HA HA! "... Lol they tried to keep some interest in it and talk up a no body. All about $$$

    It certainly helped them that Joe Webb upset the Eagles on Monday night football a few years ago when they were actually good. Of course it was a meaningless game but hey, i'm sure it helped them hype him up. I personally didn't think he would do anything amazing but I though he'd be better than that.

    2010 chick fil a bowl Atlanta dec 31st vs South Carolina. Ponder got knocked out of the game after about 2 pass attempts. Manuel came in and won the game for them.
