Notre Dame’s Michael Floyd: 3rd or 4th Best Pro Prospect at Receiver?

michael floyd

There are some that would say that Michael Floyd wasn’t even the best receiver on the field on the evening Notre Dame took on USC. And Floyd failed to even surpass the thirty yard mark against the Trojans; which gave the critics more ammunition. Of course, he made up for it yesterday with a 120+ yards receiving and a touchdown versus Navy. Yeah, it’s Navy, but we know what issues the Irish have had with them lately.

Floyd will surpass the thousand yard mark for the second consecutive season. His ability to block down the field to create big plays for others will be vital in the NFL. His size is also coveted by general managers at the next level. Some others deserve to be mentioned in the conversation, but none surpass him in terms of potential.

Sooners Down Seminoles: Five Thoughts on Oklahoma’s Victory

Florida State hot chicks

Landry Jones came into a raucous atmosphere at Doak Campbell Stadium in Tallahassee on Saturday night having a checkered track record in road games. He was 3-5 in true road games as the QB of the Oklahoma Sooners, and going into a stadium that was louder than it has been in nearly a decade, it was going to be a huge test of his resolve and ability to call an effective game for the number one team in the country.

As for the Florida State Seminoles, this game provided an opportunity for them to get the kind of statement win that teams don’t get a lot of chances to get. The program has lost some of its luster since its heyday around 10 years ago, but with a young and exciting quarterback in EJ Manuel and an energetic head coach in Jimbo Fisher, the ‘Noles are looking to get back to prominence, and Saturday night was a tantalizing opportunity on national TV and in front of their home fans.

With top-ranked Oklahoma visiting fifth-ranked Florida State, we have our first de facto in season playoff game. Since college football doesn’t have a playoff system, and really a joke of a postseason when you think about it, the regular season becomes single elimination playoffs. Because you need to be undefeated to even have a chance to play for a national title.

The national spotlight will shine on Tallahassee, Fla., Saturday night (7pm CT) as two of the top teams in the nation but heads. EJ Manuel and the No. 5-ranked Florida State Seminoles (2-0) will welcome Landry Jones and the No. 1-ranked Oklahoma Sooners (1-0) to Doak S. Campbell Stadium.

Manuel and the Seminoles, averaging 509.5 yards of total offense and 48 points per game, have outscored their opponents 96-10 at home thus far. In the Sooners’ season opener, Jones threw for 375 yards on 35 completions while helping Oklahoma to 663 yards of total offense.

Last season, Oklahoma, which holds a 5-1 advantage in the series, took a 47-17 win over Florida State.

sooners hot chicks

There’s no question who the power of the Big 12 is these days. Nebraska is gone, Texas A&M is looking to SECede the first chance it gets and Texas is still a couple years away from being TEXAS! They do have that Longhorn Network, which makes them the team in the conference with the biggest gun, but only the Oklahoma Sooners are strong enough to contend for a national title. They have an elite NFL prospect quarterback in Landry Jones; explosive skill position guys; and about as much overall balance and depth as you’ll find on any roster.
