Links at Lunch: Arizona-Oklahoma State on Tap; Tommy Rees in at Notre Dame


Supposedly the NFL kicks off tonight, but to paraphrase an advertising hook from the professional ranks, “Thursday night IS college football night.”

Arizona and Oklahoma State have the privilege of going head-to-head with the Saints-Packers, surely to lose the ratings battles despite Jenn Brown’s presence on the sidelines per Cowboys Ride For Free. The inevitable NFL ratings win ensure various trolls on radio and TV can emerge from beneath their bridges to declare the NFL vastly superior. If UA puts up a fight as feeble as its effort against these same Cowboys in December’s Alamo Bowl, college honks will be hard pressed to counter. Arizona’s passing attack looked especially crisp in its 41-10 rout of Northern Arizona, but Nick Foles will not have his No. 1 target. Juron Criner did not make the trip for undisclosed reason, a troublesome sign for the Wildcats given the tumult of Criner’s offseason (both links via The Arizona Republic website AZCentral.com).

UA must bank on OSU’s “Thursday Night Curse,” which Cowboys Ride For Free (again) documents.
