Football Friday: Upsets, Chats and Plenty to Read
It's a big football weekend, locally and nationally, and if Oregon State's upset of USC last night is any indication, it could very eventful indeed. So you should have plenty to talk about with Eric Prisbell and Steve Yanda in today's online chat at noon.
In our paper, Eric takes a look at the challenge of entering Death Valley, where Coach Ralph Friedgen enters with a winning record (2-1). Camille Powell looks at what might be the most underappreciated job in sports: wide receiver at Navy. Zach Berman notices a good indicator that your program might be having problems: when you're an underdog to Duke.
On the Clemson side, The State's Ron Morris says the main thing wrong with quarterback Cullen Harper is a fickle fan base. Perhaps a healthier offensive line would help, too. And it's not what reporters were fishing for, but Clemson running back does make some guarantees on the week of the Maryland game, after all.
Finally, Steve examined what it's like to keep going to work every day knowing you're going to be fired at season's end. As I always say, if you're going to get fired, best to do it before noon, so you don't waste the whole day at work.
