Dwayne Jarrett will be looking for this guy

Meet Andre Jones. Andre is a starting cornerback for the Nebraska Cornhuskers, who we've already determined, seem to be a bit masochistic. But Andre appears to be taking it to another level. Confronted with the task of stopping Jarrett, Smith, Booty, Davis, etc, Andre has let his hubris boil over, essentially guaranteeing a Nebraska win on Saturday.

"When we beat this team, we can show the world that we are a great team and we restored the order," Jones said Tuesday, "When we beat USC, its going to slingshot our season."

I don't think I'm in the minority when I say that it's probably not the smartest idea to provide bulletin board material to a Trojan team that is already out to prove doubters wrong this season, especially when the only tests of your own talent have thus far come against Louisiana Tech and Nicholls State. I seem to remember another Big 12 defender, Oklahoma's Larry Birdine talking mess about Matt Leinart and USC before the Orange Bowl a few years back, and we all remember how that turned out.

Again, I'm just not sure the Huskers have any idea what's coming to them. Preach on, Andre.

Update: Jones actually chose to attend Nebraska after turning down a scholarship offer from USC while he was at Fresno City Community College. Something tells me he may be regret that decision come Saturday.
