This weekend saw a trifecta of Top 20 upsets that have, once again, turned the BCS upside down. For some, it was the game of the season resulting in a conference championship. For others, it was the end of a season with so much potential. For the rest, what the f@$% happens now?

The Sooners’ defense will be a huge question mark this season, just as it was last year when the “D” had many folks scratching their heads. As is the case with the defensive line this spring, uncertainty is the dominant theme at linebacker.
