367 yards!? At half time? That's like more yards than TCU gave up all last year :lol: And they have only let up 34 points or more twice in the last 3 season.

EDIT: I think TCU will come back.

I guess if this keeps going, TCU will drop out of the top 25 and Baylor will probably be in the top 25?

Nevermind what I said about TCU coming back (I fell asleep and missed the first half), but Fuck, RGIII is an absolute BEAST. Those last two TD passes have been beautiful.

Utah St about to down Auburn. There is another unexpected crazy game. Utah St up 31-28 in scoring position i.e. first inside the 5.

UPDATE: WOW... just WOW. Utah State was up 10 with 3 minutes to play. Auburn just came back and is up 42-38 with 41 seconds to go after getting a TD off a on-side kick.

That Utah State @ Auburn game was nuts.

Virginia Tech destroyed App State. If they hadn't stopped and taken knees for the last two minutes, their 3rd string RB would have bumped them over the 70 point mark.

Right now I'm watching Notre Dame show how much they don't deserve their bullshit preseason ranking.

Calls this what you may, but I would say that Blacks actually benefited from the slavery. Comparing the current lives of many African Americans to Africans, one can see that the former live in much better conditions with greater freedoms and opportunities.

As an Irish fan, I agree that they shouldn't have been ranked, but I the reason they go it was for dominating Miami in last years bowl game.

Also, I'm not a huge college fan and the real reason I watch Notre Dame is because of Rudy. Otherwise I probably wouldn't watch college football at all.

Although the TCU/Baylor game last night was great.

Well at least Notre Dame's defense was better than the past few years. Not to take anything away from USF but if Notre Dame didn't turn it over or miss a FG every time they were in the red zone they could have easily won that game As poorly as they played they should have lost by more than 3 pts.

I think coach Kelly is going to have a stroke by the end of the year :bomb::bomb::bomb::bomb:

Rose Bowl: Wisconsin over Stanford

Oregon wont get a BCS bowl if Stanford is in the Rose because that would mean that Oregon lost to the only two good teams on their schedule. They wouldn't have earned a BCS spot. If PAC-12 is going to swing 2 BCS teams, I would think Oregon would have to win out through the conference championship game and Stanford wins out except for one loss to Oregon.

Edit: Also, Boise won't make it to the championship unless the top teams in the Big 10, Big 12, and SEC have 2 losses. Boise might get in over 1 loss top teams from Big East or ACC though. Boise's schedule is too weak, especially with TCU losing to Baylor.

Didn't even notice that, I really couldn't think of what team to put there against Oklahoma. I think I will change it to Nebraska (but now Big 10 has 3 teams which I don't think would happen), maybe A&M?

My predictions...
ACC Championship - FSU vs VT
ACC Champion - FSU

SEC Championship - Bama vs South Carolina
SEC Champion - Bama

Big 12 9 Champion - Oklahoma

Big East Champion - USF

Pac 10 12 Championship - Stanford vs Utah
Pac 10 12 Champion - Stanford

Big 10 12 Championship - Wisconsin vs Nebraska
Big 10 12 Champion - Nebraska

Conference USA - UCF
Mid-American - N. Illinois
Mountain West - Boise St
Sun Belt - ULM
WAC - Nevada

Championship Game: Bama vs winner of Oklahoma/FSU
Champion: Bama

Boise St is the only team undefeated at end of season and get snubbed in favor of 1 loss team.

Heisman: Andrew Luck

Oregon wont get a BCS bowl if Stanford is in the Rose because that would mean that Oregon lost to the only two good teams on their schedule. They wouldn't have earned a BCS spot. If PAC-12 is going to swing 2 BCS teams, I would think Oregon would have to win out through the conference championship game and Stanford wins out except for one loss to Oregon.

Oregon plays on same side as Stanford. If they lost to Stanford, there is little chance they would get into conference championship game.

Though, I have a feeling they lose 3.

Edit: Also, Boise won't make it to the championship unless the top teams in the Big 10, Big 12, and SEC have 2 losses. Boise might get in over 1 loss top teams from Big East or ACC though. Boise's schedule is too weak, especially with TCU losing to Baylor.

Boise St is in great position to bust the system this year. Their victory over Georgia was pretty convincing + they play Nevada in couple weeks.

The top teams this year have tough games away from home.

Let's be honest, Georgia should have never been ranked to begin with. This Georgia hype was so blatantly and obviously manufactured by the sports media to make this game seem like a big time match up for the opening weekend. Think about it, they had a TERRIBLE season last year and they come back this year after losing their absolute best player and they're somehow a top 25 team? They're so thin at some positions they were using corners on offense. Come on.

Nevada will hardly help their SOS seeing as Nevada's big star is also gone. I don't think Nevada is going to pull out another 13-1 season this year.

Yes the top teams do have tough games, but the poll voters are simply not going to put an undefeated Non-AQ over a 1-loss (or possibly 2-loss) champion from the SEC or Big 10 or Big 12. The ACC and Big East have weaker reputations so Boise could possibly slip by a champion from one of those leagues if they carry a loss or two. It's not fair, but that's pretty much how it is until something motivates people to FINALLY go for a playoff system.

IMO, the thing Boise should hope for this year would be for the major AQ conferences to all produce undefeated champions. I'm fairly sure that would create a shit storm and force the playoff issue.

Can you imagine if Oklahoma, Wisconsin, Stanford, Alabama or LSU, and Virginia Tech (FSU would have to lose to Oklahoma) all ended up undefeated going into bowl season?

The only problem is that going undefeated is a difficult task, so you'll likely see a 1 or 2 loss SEC champion versus an undefeated Pac12/Big10/Big12 champ while undefeated Boise gets to play a one loss team in the Fiesta(?) bowl.

I'll be hoping for the 4+ undefeated teams scenario though. I really want to see a playoff.

They were #5 in recuiting and Aaron Murray is now no longer a freshie. This team has better pieces than it did last year.

Losing to Boise St shouldn't write this team as a fraud. Boise St is the same team that beat VT and Oregon; a reminder VT has led ACC for a couple years and Oregon who made the championship last year. This same team was one of the top defenses and a solid offense who returned tons of impact players...

Nevada will hardly help their SOS seeing as Nevada's big star is also gone. I don't think Nevada is going to pull out another 13-1 season this year.

To be seen. A QB gone doesn't mean they don't have another in the wing. @Oregon next week will show much. Fact is even with a loss to them and potential @Boise St, Nevada should run the rest; only Hawaii could put up a fight (who they have at home) but they guys disappoint every year. So at worst they are a 2 loss team.

I didn't write Georgia off as a fraud because Boise beat them, I believed they were a fraud before the season even began. They've had tons of hype and little results for a few years in a row now. Recruiting stats are nice but they don't equal a good product on the field. There are plenty of teams that get in that top 20 recruiting list every year that still manage to suck.

I think you believe that I'm anti-Boise and I'm not. I just don't think they will ever get a chance in the current system. There's simply not enough opportunity for them to get into the conversation. Their only hope really is for the bigger schools to stumble quite a few times. I know they schedule a big school or two every year and they pull out the win, but I also understand the AQ snobs point of view to a certain extent.

If you look at their wins against Oregon, Virginia Tech, Oregon State, and Georgia the scores were: 19-8, 33-30, 37-24, 35-21 respectively. They are definitely a good football team, but they aren't hanging 51-0 on VT or UGA like they do to Fresno State. That Fresno victory was last year when Fresno went 8-5. The Oregon State victory was also last year and they went 5-7. Why are they only beating Oregon State by 2 scores? When they play teams that can recruit better talent, their margin of victory decreases dramatically. The question is: could Boise win every week playing higher caliber talent? Does that 33-30 score swing in their favor every time?

We really don't know because they are just in a bad spot. They really need to get into a better conference so they can really show what they're capable of. They tried to make some forward progress with the MWC, but Utah and TCU are gone or soon to be and they're right back in a crappy place.

I personally think they would still be great if they played in say the Pac-12 or Big 12, but I really don't think they'd go undefeated or one loss year in and year out like they have been recently. I think Peterson would have them competing, but they'd probably turn into a 9-3 or 10-2 team for the regular season.

I really wish we had either a plus one game or an 8 team playoff. I would like to see more teams get a shot at playing into the National Championship. Whether it be Boise, some other left out undefeated team (like TCU, or even Auburn years ago), or a team that had one loss [and isn't from the SEC] but is playing harder and faster than everyone else at the end of the year.

Weird opener for WVU--lighting led to a 3 hour+ delay in the third quarter, they started back for a bit and then ended up ending the game early in the 4th due to more lightning.

Anyway, 34-13 win for WVU over Marshall. Was happy to see LSU beat Oregon, hoping they can come into Morgantown unbeaten in a few week.


On the expansion front, looks like the Pac 16 is in discussion again.
