The Silver Bullet

An opinion in popular sports

The BIG Game

#16 Hawaii will pompously strut into Spartan Stadium on Friday night looking to stay unbeaten. In the Western Athletic Conference, The Spartans and #16 Hawaii are knotted atop the standings(though one is 3-3, the other 6-0)

Does this make for a big game? Sure.

Does it mean that it will be a big game? Probably Not.

 This is the type of game however that can breathe life into a fledgling program like San Jose State. A win here would put them on the map and equate them, in some ways, to the Boise States and South Florida, and most recently Stanford

Let’s face it… Tomey’s boys haven’t shown us anything and the reigning New Mexico Bowl champs have given us little reason to believe. This Nationally televised match-up from the clunker of a venue that is spartan stadium is still a chance to make a name for San Jose State.

The Spartans will just have to be prepared and keep the game close and hope to be there in the end.

Colt Brennan, Hawaii’s number one stud of a son, will be under center at the beginning of the game, so reports the Associated Press. But his presence doesn’t make a difference to the Spartan Coaching staff who insist that defending the system is the key to beating this team.

My thoughts are discouraging as I don’t feel the Spartans are the same team from last season and haven’t been able to re-instill confidence in me.

Hawaii may win this one in a rout. But just think what would happen if they didn’t?

The Spartans might get a national nod.
