Two weeks to go.

Can Texas repeat?? Oklahoma's QB (Savior) is out from the program. Colorado, I don't even consider them.

Can USC (trojans) reload? Cal wants to turn the table. UCLA, Arizona, Washington all licking their wounds from the past years and want to dish it out this time.

Will SEC kill each other? Georgia, Auburn, Florida, LSU 1st tier. Tenn, Bama, South Carolina, Hogs 2nd tier.

Bowden the big boss is looking for another championship season. Miami, Va Tech in their way.

Ohio State can run the table. Penn, Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa will try to prevent it.

This is where it will happen. Your thoughts!! Go Razorbacks. Go SEC!!

Nat'l Title looks like a Fiesta Bowl rematch between Ohio State vs ND. Big early game at Austin (1)Ohio State vs (2) Texas Oct ??.

Louisville and Utah look like really strong mid majors and I just can't see sans superman (V. Young) and Sans Batman & Robin (R. Bush, M. Leinart) USC and Texas winning 9 games.

Excellent choice on the Ohio State. Caught me off guard with Notre Dame. Looking at the schedule it does not seem to be a cake wake either.
Week 2 - at Georgia Tech. Week 3 - Penn, Week 4 - Michgan, Week 5 - at Michgan state (potencial loss because of four continuous week of pounding and away game), Week 9 UCLA but have a by week before that, and finally USC in the last game. 2 loss will put them out of any championship hopes which can easily happen. And I don't like ND :)

How is Louiville's defense? That will determine a lot of things. Utah going nowhere. they had a 6-5 (4-4) season last year.

who needs Defense when u score 50 a game? They only have 2 tough games Miami and W. Virginia. I forgot Louisville is in the Big East now, the winner of the W.Virgina/Louisville also has a good chance of being in the Nat'l title game since the big east is a Basketball confrence and no longer a football powerhouse.

Now West Virginia is a fine team. The only ranked team they will play all year long would be Louisville. Although their strength of schedule will hurt them but if they can go undefeated and they have a cupcake schedule, they should be in BCS mix if not the Championship game. If (Big if) any other two teams from the big conferences can go undefeated, W V will have no chance.

I am not sure Louisville is that good yet to beat Miami at Miami. Not very many team has done that to Larry Coker.

3 more days!!!
Week 1 significant matchups:

Florida State Vs. Miami
This can get any better. championship implications. The loser will have a hard time to crack back at top 5 again this season.

Notre Dame Vs. Georgia Tech
On the Road ND will face some tough resistance.

USC Vs. Arkansas
Last year it was over with in first 5 minutes of the game. At the end, USC hanged 70 points and 700+ yeards of offense. What a difference a year makes. The line is only 8.5 on USC. Go Razorbacks!!

Tenn Vs. UCLA
If Tenn can solve their quarter back issue they can beat anyone. But I think UCLA is too strong this year and comes out victorious.

I don't see any upsets like last year where Oklahoma lost.

Can't wait till saturday.

The Season begins:
BC got a scare. Beat C Michigan 31-24.
Iowa State won on 45-43 3OT against Toledo.
Arizona State starts their campaign by beating N Arizona 35-14

Northwestern tributes their win over Miami (OH) to their fallen Coach Walker (21-3).

Ole Ball Coach gets a 15-0 win and the Other USC (South Carolina) looks good for another good season might even get into the SEC title game. Amazing guy can't do anything w/ the redskins but can turn a program like South Carolina around. Pete Caroll got fired by the jets and went to the other USC and got 3 Heismans, 2 Nat'l Title and still has a top 10 program this year after 5 seasons.

No major upsets. few got a scare.

FSU-Miami -defense, defense and some defense. FSU team managed to have a total of 5 yards of rushing yards in the entire game. 5?? 1 in 1st half. 4 in the second and still won, lol. And guess how much Miami had in rushing yards for the match? 4, lol. Combining both teams, 9 yards of rushing in 50 tries. That has to be record. score 13-10 FSU.

Notre Dame - GT. Geez! "How to lose a match 101". That what GT displayed. Personal foul allowed ND to continue the drive and had catches that can be only dreamed off. deflected by defenders falling in to the lap of the receivers. Sad. 14-10 ND.

USC - Ark. USC, a far superior team helped by 3 turnovers in the 1st half giving USC field position inside the opponent territory. still was checked to 10 points at the half. 2nd half the defense was tired, offense turned over again and the game was over for Arkansas. 50-14 USC.

Tenn - UCLA. I for one thought UCLA would show up in this match. Tenn just dominated from the start and never looked back. PAC 10 is over-rated. Cause Tenn is in between 5 and 7 team in SEC.

Others: Oklahoma got a scare. Texas and Ohio State flexed their muscles. That would be an intriging game next week. The buck-eyes are traveling to Austin with revenge in mind. Big ten registered a 100% win for the week one.

Games to watch (week 2): Penn vs ND (home).
Ohio State vs Texas (home).
Arizona vs LSU (home).
Georgia vs South Carolina (home). Georgia is no Mississippi State. Ole ball coach will have a tough time.

Associate Press poles Notre Dame as #2, then Auburn, USC and then W Virginia all chasing Ohio State (1). 24-7 beating has made Texas drop to 8. LSU 6, Florida 7 and Georgia at 10. With Florida State at 9.

Iowa-Syracuse game was a classic. Aided by Iowa penulties Syracuse had 7 tries at the end of the game to punch it in from 1st and goal inside the 5 year line. Goal line defense won the game. wow!

Tennessee got a scare from Air force (31-30), Texas Tech won in overtime against UTEP, Louisville, LSU, Va Tech, Michigan, W Virginia, Nabraska, Florida, Cal, Miami, Arizona State, Notre Dame won big. BC beat Clemson (18) in overtime upset.

Adrian Peterson of Oklahoma is on fire. Averaging 152 yards per game with 3 touchdown and 5.4 yards per carry. TCU has the longest winning streak of 12 now in Div 1. Spurrier's offense had a rare shutout. His first season (19 years back) as a headcoach at Duke had one game against Rutgers losing 0-7. Then a span of 193 games of coaching and never been shut out. Speaking of Rutgers they spanked Illinois 33-0. Big ten, lol.

Week 3:
Championship implications this week. First teams are the host.

Auburn (4) vs LSU (6) road team holds an edge in this series lol. Loser will be looking at from the outside all year long.
N Dame (2) vs Michgan (11). Road to BCS for N Dame.
USC (3) vs Nabraska (19) an upset will boost Huskers stock. Though I see a route by USC.
Tennessee (13) vs Florida (7). Florida should win this one and wait for the Goergia and Fl St showdown.

Other important matches:

Oregon (15) vs Oklahoma (18).
Louisville (12) vs Miami (FL) (17).
TCU (20) vs T Tech (24).
Iowa (16) vs Iowa. State Rivalry game.
FSU (9) vs Clemson.
Colorado vs Arizona St (22)

Non important match up:
Vandy vs Ark. An Ark loss can start up "fire Nutt" websites. This means almost opening a season with 1-4 record.
Utah St. vs Utah.
Washington vs Fresno St.

Music to my ears!!

USC is in hot waters.
"The potential problem for USC goes beyond the trail of money to Bush. The Trojan program could be found by the NCAA to have failed to exert proper institutional control.
Sources told Yahoo! Sports that representatives of New Era were allowed into the USC locker room during the 2005 season. Ornstein and other agents frequented the USC sidelines during several games and numerous practices that season, according to published reports.
Also, McNair allegedly knew of Bush's involvement with the New Era venture before last season's national championship game against Texas, according to two sources. And at one point during the 2005 season, sources say Bush thought that Carroll knew about his parents' living arrangement and feared he was going to conduct his own investigation. Bush called Michaels, instructing that if Carroll called regarding the house to "tell him that you're a longtime family friend." Carroll never called Michaels. "
http://sports.yahoo.com/ncaaf/news?slug=ys-bushprobe&prov=yhoo&type=lgns

I like Reggie. I think he is a freak (in a good sense) like Vick. He is a warrick Dunn but only bigger, faster and stronger. That is scary. However, I think unethical practice was done here. I hope the truth comes out from the NCAA and PAC-10 investigation.

I usually take the officials side but this week it seems that the officiating was poor. With the help of replay even they could not get some of the crucial calls right.

1. Oklahoma vs Oregon. Oklahoma did everything right. and they should have won the game easily. But the officials missed several key calls and handed the Oregon the Pac-10 team the victory. Guess which conference the crew were from? Yep, Pac-10.

2. LSU-Auburn. Just bad officiating by the SEC crew. They need some serious upgrade if things are to be better. Auburn hold on to dear life with officials giving calls in their favor.

There were some upsets and there were some big wins. Here it went down last week.

Notre Dame lost to Michgan. They were blown out in the first half and could never get back. But I think Brady Quinn is NFL material.

9th ranked Florida State team some how lost to unranked Clemson.

Louisville is stablishing themselves as one of the contenders for this years title chase. I don't think they can get a shot at the title but a BCS bowl will be there. They Killed Miami. For the first time since 1999 Miami is not ranked any more.

W Virgina, Va tech, Ohio State, Penn, Georgia, Texas, Cal, USC crused to their victories.

Florida beat the vols at Nayland Stadium. Big win on the road. 21-20 gators.
BC survived yet again in overtime against BYU. 23-30 overtime.

Next weeks important matchups.
Louisville (8) goes to Kansas State.
Arizona State (20) visits Cal (22).
Penn (24) visits Ohio (1).
Notre Dame (12) goes to Michgan St.

Other matchups:
Arkansas Vs Alabama
USC (3) Vs Arizona
Iowa State Vs Texas (7)
Colorado Vs Georgia (9)
Va tech (11) Vs Cinci
Minn Vs Purdue

Boston college ran out of luck and lost to unranked NC State.

N Dame scored 19 unanswered points against Michigan st. in the forth quarter to win by 3. Miracles still follow the Irish.

Colorado almost had a shocker but backup quarterback bailed Georgia out. 14-13 Bulldogs over the visiting Buffaloes.

Oklahoma took out their frustration over Midd Tenn state.

W Virginia's 17 point win is not big enough against East Carolina to put them as a contender.

Alabama Kicker Tiffin gave the game to Arkansas. He missed 3 field goals (inside the 40) and an extra point in the second overtime which was the difference, 23-24 Arkansas. Arkansas with a pityful 3rd conversion rate, 1:2 time of possession has some major work to do before facing Auburn (the big daddy of SEC so far).

LSU, Florida, Florida State, Texas, Tennessee, Clemson, Louisville, Cal, Ohio State, Nabraska all won big.

Next week (week 5) some huge games:
Starting with:
Auburn (2) visiting the Gamecocks and Spurrier.
Georgia Tech (24) visiting Virginia Tech (11).
Alabama going to the Swamp (5).
N Dame Irish (12) taking on the Purdue Boilermakers at south bend.

The undisputed #1 is Ohio state (for now).
Auburn and USC both are trailing and had to work hard to preserve a one touchdown lead. In the battle of Techies, Va tech was exposed by the visiting Ga Tech. Florida rolled over Bama, LSU, Notre Dame, Clemson, Cal, Michigan was impressive. Miami, Georgia and Nabraska barely made it through the end. Michigan State did not come to play and was in the receiving end of the biggest upset of the season and lost to Illinois. Oregon trying to justify their rankings by beating Arizona State. Texas waiting for Oklahoma. TCU lost its longest winning streak in the Div I.

Next weeks matchups:
Florida (5) hosting LSU (9) big game for the SEC. Undefeated florida facing may be the best defense in NCAA this year.
Texas (7) visiting Oklahoma (14). Well Sam Houston State is no Oklahoma. Is this the year for the sooners? Certainly with a backup Quarterback it will be hard. I would see A. Peterson running all day long right and left.
Michigan (6) vs Michigan State. Rivalry, need I say more. With the loss to Illinois the whole anticipated matchup became a very ordinary one. Can Michigan keep their focus.
Tennessee (13) at Georgia (10). Both team to me are over-rated. I would love to see a bulldog victory. Afterall they are the undefeated team and at home.
Oregon (11) visiting Cal (16). This is too close to call. May be Oregon still stays undefeated.

Other matches which has significance interest:
Washigton (4-1) Tyrone Williams's team are doing great. They have already doubled last years wins. But matching up with USC is something less. USC by 20.
Arkansas visiting Auburn (2). Minimum of 3 touchdowns wins by Auburn to regain some votes and confidence. Arkansas has the weapons but lack experience. Two years from now this will be a good game.
Nabraska (22) going to Iowa State. The cyclones can bite the Corn Huskers if they are not ready.
Arizona vs UCLA.
South Carolina vs Kentucky
Navy vs Air Force
Purdue at Iowa (19)

Rutgers is now 5-0 haha wow, seriously i've seen them play they've got 2nd best RB in Ray Rice(Right behind A. Peterson) the best FB Brian Leonard, QB is a little shaky but there are a really good team so W.Virgina and Louisville watch out.

It also looks like November 18th is going to be the game of the Century with 11-0 Michigan vs 11-0 Ohio State.

Kabir bhai do you want me to laugh? Missouri Tigers cupcake season will be a good one if they can manage a win in a bowl game. With this kind of schedule they ought to make it that far.

They are 5-0. However, the team they beat are combined 6-19. They only play one team that is worth mentioning that is Oklahoma. I don't consider the Corn Huskers even as a pretender. Among the power conference big 12 is the weakest. Good luck against T Tech. and then A & M.

What a week for college football and SEC. Leaving Mississippi State top to bottom they are the strongest conference in the nation. That is why year in year out they don't have undefeated teams like Pac 10 or Big 12. There was a major shake up. My Arkansas Hogs upset the then #2 Auburn Tigers 27-10 on the road. Florida (5) spanked LSU (6) and moved up to #2 in the AP poll. The Long Horns beat the Sooners at cotton bowl. USC barely made it second week in a row against Washington. Florida State kept the losing streak alive at NC State. Tennessee hunged 50+ points against the previously undefeated Georgia on the road (impressive). This was the second time in the school history for the bull dogs that an opponent has scored over 50 and coming into this game their defense was #2 in the nation and the stingiest overall. Oregon got exposed by Cal. That should put a smile on Bob Stoops even after a Texas loss.

Louisville, W Virginia, Clemson, Nabraska, Michigan, Notre Dame, Boise St., Missouri, Ga Tech, Iowa won their respective game. I feel for West Virginia. They won big still dropped from #4 to #5. Michigan toppled them, grrrr.

Next week there aren't that many significant games but some of them are very important in the ranking departments.

Current #2 Florida visiting the former #2 Auburn (11).
#4 Michigan visiting Joe Pa and Nitty Lions.
Cal (10) visiting Washinton State.
Ohio State (1) will be at Michigan State.
Missouri (19) on the road to Texas A & M. Francioni is in hot waters.
Minnesota visiting Wisconsin (25).
Nabraska (21) going on th eroad at Kansas State.
Va Tech (22) visiting Boston College.
UCLA going to Oregon (18).

Yup!! Upset continues.

SEC:
Florida lost its ground and Auburn is back on top. Seesaw it is. Tennessee is is poking its ugly head, LSU is realing, Georgia is falling fast. Anyways, lost og games still to be played. Tenn will face Bama, LSU at home and visit S Carolina and Ark.

Big Ten:
#1 and #2. Iowa, Penn Purdue all dropped out. Wisconsin still running strong. Feel sorry for Minnesota. Too many turnovers. It could have been 3-1 instead of a 0-4 conference standing. Nov 18, Ohio State and Michigan game will be huge. Whoever loses will be out of the BCS game. Can't figure out what Indiana is. One week they lose to Div I-AA team the next they beat power house team like Iowa.

Big 12:
There is Texas and there is the rest. Even Oklahoma is having a hard time to stay in the top 20. Mizzou got their bubble burst as expected. The next 3 weeks will be gut check time for them. The Corn Nuskers are over rated even at #17.

PAC 10:
An USC team winning by 6, 6 and 7, 3 weeks in a row against not so good competition speaks the program has not reloaded as well they were expected to. Getting Oregon, Cal and Notre Dame at home 3 weeks in a row may be the only solice. Those team are not Washigton, Wa State or Zona State.

ACC:
By default Clemson is on top now. They next two weeks will see how good they are. They will face Georgia Tech and Va Tech. The other contenders.

Big East:
I must say surging Rutgers has caught my eye. Although Pitt still holds all the trumpcards but I think W Virginia is too strong for both of them. And there is undefeated Louisville. The one between W. Virginia and Louisville should represent in a BCS game. Championship shot is still out of reach unless USC loses too.

Notre Dame:
Likely to run the table till the USC game. Navy lost their QB in triple option game and would not likely to challenge them. They can't topple Auburn or Florida unless they beat USC.

I would love to see W Virginia play for the championship game against Ohio State or Michigan.

can't understand this standing why missouri in 24 when they r 6-1? btw I don't follow collegefootball that much so this might be a dumb q.
last game for MU was pretty close too.
The polls are based on mostly who plays the big teams/comference and beats them. Texas A & M was an unranked team and losing to them had to hurt Mizzou. The conference they are in Big 12, has only two good teams Texas and Oklahoma who are not even in their division. So winning is not the only criteria to make a mark. They must win big to get any type of recognition by the coaches, journalists and computers.

This week the best game would be Texas (5) at Nabraska (17). Now unranked Iowa will find it difficult at Michigan (2). In six weeks 5 #2s were replaced. :)
Is it time for Michigan to faulter also?

SEC games: Mississippi will visit at Ark (15) (important game for the hogs). Tennessee (7) will face Bama at home. The more I see this Wilson Dude the more I am impressed.

What a game Texas and Corn Huskers was. Long Horn Colt (Colt McCoy), showed maturity at an hostile environment. My props also goes to Notre Dame. I desperately need them win against USC. So that my W. Virginia team play against Buck-eyes and shock the world.

Michgan passed their final test and wait for #1 Ohio State for the November matchup. All they have to do is stay healthy and show up for the game. Tennessee got the Bama scare and won 16-13. Arkansas did win convincingly at home. Louisville, Auburn, Missouri, Rutgers, Oklahoma, Boise St., LSU, Wisconsin, W Virginia all won.
Clemson's beating Ga Tech was big. Boston college handed FL St. 3 loss of the season. hard to believe FL St. at the bottom of their table. Texas Tech barely won against Ok State.

Next week Clemson will Va tech. This will be a great game or a blow out for Clemson.
Then we have Oklahoma (19) vs Missouri (23). This will show how good Missouri is. Although for Ok there is no Adrian Peterson (the Heisman candidate - who was a shoe in before last week).
Georgia visiting Florida (9).
USC (3) going to Oregon St.
Tennessee (8) at South Carolina.
Texas (5) at Texas Tech.

The Michigan Spartans was down and was almost out of the ball game against NorthWestern. after taking a 3-0 lead, 38 unanswered points were scored against them and there was less than 20 mins left in the ball game. This was a miraculas comeback one has ever witnessed. They then scored 38 unanswered points to win the game 41-38.

Hats off to the Spartans. Their never give up attitude shows the charecter of their program.

with 7 wins they are already bowl eligible but if they can win there next 3 games vs Oklahoma, Nebraska and Iowa State they'll play Texas in the Big 12 title game. Oklahoma they should beat because no AD, and then it's the big one vs Nebraska, who ever wins that game will play texas in the Big 12 title game.

If they can beat Texas then it's $$$$ in a big BCS bowl game.

I'm telling you watch out for Rutgers!!! 7-0 this is has a chance to be the biggest Cinderella ever, even bigger than George Mason. Big East can now laugh at Miami for leaving them barely beating Duke of all teams.

W.Virgina
Rutgers
Louisville

All 3 of them play each other great drama here are the Big games for the Big East

• Nov. 2: West Virginia at Louisville. Biggest football game ever played in the state of Kentucky.
• Nov. 9: Louisville at Rutgers. Perfect setup for the Scarlet Knights: catch the Cardinals coming off the Mountaineers game in what might be Rutgers' biggest game since it started the sport with Princeton in 1869.
• Nov. 16: West Virginia at Pittsburgh. Backyard Brawl gives Panthers a chance for revenge after being ripped by WVU on a frozen field last year.
• Nov. 25: Louisville at Pittsburgh. Cards beware: Last home game for Tyler Palko (http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/player/profile?playerId=134942) and H.B. Blades.
• Dec. 2: Rutgers at West Virginia. Potentially the biggest Cinderella story since Northwestern 1995 vs. a team that could be playing for a spot in the national championship game.

:)In college Football there is no second round. Ending with a winning record for the season makes a team eligible for an extra game which is called Bowl game. The colleges get an enormous amount of money to participate in these bowl games. That is why the bowl game is very important. From this season, each team will play 12 games (Last season it was 11). Winning a minimum of 6 games then makes a team bowl eligible. So Mizzu (Univ of Missouri) with 7-1 record even if they lose the rest of games they would still play in a bowl game. The better the team record would be at the end of the season the better bowl (more money) a team will play. I predict Missouri will end up with 9-3. That is considered as a very good season. But some how if they can win at Nabraska then they will play Texas before the bowl game in the Big 12 Championship game. If they some how beat Univ of Texas at Kansas City, then they will play at the BCS bowls which pays minimum of 14 million dollars (for one game :) ) and maximum 18+ Million dollars. Doesn't matter if they lose in that game or not. Those are garanteed money for the conference. Then Big twelve would distribute the money among the schools. Teams who get to the bowl games get a larger share.

In plain english, Missouri is in good shape this season, the expectation is high, the fans, coaches, players, admins, everyone is happy. Football program will bring in a lot of money this year.

Rutgers didn't play anyone. They defeated Pitt at Pitt, but Pitt is not ranked. So one Jury is still out. But certainly that program is on the rise. 7-0 is 7-0. W. Virginia to me is the perfect Cinderella team. If some how USC manages to lose against Cal or ND, then they (W V) can go head to head with Ohio State or Michigan. Louisville will give a great fight at W. Virginia but I don't think there defense is good enough. Turnovers may become an issue.

What a game by Frank Beamer's Hokies. The clemson Tigers came in to the game boasting 260+ rushing yards per game. With two backs averaging over 100 yards. Iron Ore of Va Tech, took it personally and ran 203 yards himself to make his own mark on the game. Flood gate is open now. Ga Tech, Boston College, Maryland, Wake, Ga Tech, Miami all are back at the picture for the ACC title.

What a Saturday!! I love it. USC lost to Oregon State on the road. That is the openning I was waiting for. W. Virginia now controls their own destiny. They have to win out and play Ohio State or Michigan. Woohooo!!!

Texas escaped against T Tech. Mizzou got exposed by the Oklahoma sooners. This beating happened without AP (the best back in this years class) and their #1 Quarterback (suspended and transferred). Nabraska got into the cowboys trap and got strangled 29 - 41. Tennessee escaped from the other USC (Univ of South Carolina) to keep pace with Florida. Auburn, Florida, Rutgers, Wake, Wisconsin none of them impressed anyone but just got the "W".

Next Week:
Battle of the unbeaten starts at the Big East. Louisville (5) will host W. Virginia (3). This should be an exciting game.
Penn St. at Wisconsin (17).
Maryland at Clemson (19).
Missouri at Nabraska. Although none are ranked any more But this game has big implications. Who ever wins will represent Big 12 North and play Texas.
Florida (7) at Vandy.
LSU (13) at Tennessee (8). This is the second most important game in the nation after the Louisville W. Virginia game. Seeding will change I think. LSU defense should be too powerful for Ainge and Co.
Boston College (16) at Wake (22). Both 7-1. Should be very interesting.
Ok St. at Texas (4). Can the cowboys spring an upset? Naah!! I don't think so.
Ark (13) at South Carolina. Let the game begin. 4 game streach will make or break for both teams. Arkansas must win out to get a BCS berth. Any hiccups will see them at cotton bowl in Dallas.
Oklahoma (18) visits Texas A & M (21). Another good game only because A. Peterson is out.

Tigers_eye
November 3, 2006, 09:27 AM
Since this had BCS implications I would just put this one in a seperate post.

What a game last night. This is the first time I saw both W Virginia and Louisville this season. Two excellent teams. Lots of high and lows. Turnovers killed W Virginia. They raked up 575 total yards on one of the nations top defenses. Their ground game was too strong. 353 yards in 50 tries averaging 7.1 yards per pop. This is on the third rushing defense in the nation?? (i know they didn't play anyone thus the stat sheets are full of great numbers)

However, one must look at the score and give the props that Louisville deserved. They got 7 points from the defense and 7 points from the special teams. That ultimately led them to a 10 point victory against a team who were ranked ahead of them. Brohm was phenomenal. 354 yards passing and a touch down. The road up ahead is a little bumpy for Louisville. They will face another undefeated team Rutgars. Then finish of the season at Pitt. But at the end of the day they had a great game plan and executed well.

Both of these two teams are good teams but I must say if they were in SEC they would definitely finish the season with a minimum of two losses in the middle of the pack in their division (not even in the conference).

West Viriginia'r running game was quite impressive. The quarterback Pat White is pretty good. This kid can run.

Tigers_eye
November 3, 2006, 12:17 PM
yup!! White is a good runner and also has a strong arm. But I think Stenton is too good. If he had'n't have the hand problem (couldn't grip the ball) they might have won the game for sure (two fumbles wouldn't have happened). His speed is deceptive. Somehow in mis direction option plays time and again once he passed the front line no body could touch him. I was just amazed. He is not that big back but sleek. Charlie ward, Warrick Dunn type runner.

Arkansas has two backs Felix Jones and McFadden. Both are fast but they have a power game. In open field no one can catch them. McFadden is Eddie Gorge type back. Tomorrow they have a big game at South Carolina.

The USC running back Moody is punishing back.
Mike hart of Michigan, Pittman of Ohio States, Lynch of Cal are power and speed. However, none will be #1 running back in the draft. That is already locked by Adrian Peterson of Oklahoma.

Big 10:
Well, the dust has settled and Ohio State is uninamously #1 in the nation. Last time this had happened when the Sooners were setting up for a disaster against Kansas State in 2003. History repeats? They (Buckeyes) will visit #2 Michigan in two weeks. Wisconsin (16) can easily get by under the radar and end up #2 in Big 10. That would a crime. Playing only one ranked team whole season and losing that game makes Boise State look like powerhouse. I am surprized by Minnesota and Michigan State's aweful performance this season. Northwestern, Indiana and Illinois played much better than expected.

SEC:
The Vols (13) lost to LSU (12) even after leading with 10 seconds remaining. That pushed them outside the top 10. LSU creeping up the top again and tailgating Arkansas.
Arkansas (11) hold on to a 20 point lead and won by 6. Now they will get Tennessee at home. One game at a time. Go hogs. McFadden put on a show and ran for 216 yards against the Game cocks.
Huge upset week: Bama the football power house lost to Mississippi State. This was Miss State's first SEC win this year :). Coach Shula will be fired if they lose the next two games at LSU and at home against Auburn (6). I would personally be delighted if they beat Auburn. That would make sure Arkansas go to the SEC finals against Florida. Kentucky beat Georgia and this is not Basket ball season yet. :) TT Georgia's coach is not in a hot seat. But he will be after facing Auburn and Georgia Tech in the final two games.

ACC:
Wake (18) is still one of the "one lose" team. However they will be facing Florida State, Va Tech (20) and Maryland (23) in the remaining three games and then if they still stay the remain the division leader then they will face Ga Tech (19) in the ACC finals.

Pac 10:
USC (7), Cal (8), Oregon (22) all still have chance to win their conference. Cal has the easiest schedule and USC has the toughest but all three games are at home. USC losing against Cal is very much possible and then knocking of Notre Dame (9) would make my season.

WAC:
Boise State will get a BCS berth which I can't accept. Cupcake conferences stealing an SEC's birth right.

Week 11:
Louisville (3) at Rutgars (15). Can Rutgars cook up a shocker?
Wisconsin (16) at Iowa. Unranked Iowa should burry wisconsin once for all.
Georgia at Auburn (6). Big time media coverage and big implecations in the Tigers lose. Go Bulldogs!!!
South Carolina at Florida (5). The Ol Ball Coach will visit his home where he has won everything there is to win as a coach and as a player. This will be interesting.
Cal (8) at Zona.
Tennessee (13) at Arkansas (11). Must win for Arkansas at home. Their secondary will be tested on this one.
Bama at LSU (12). Shula's job is depending on this one.
Wafe Forrest (18) at Florida State. Big consequence if Wake loses this match. Maryland would jump up and down.
Oregon (21) at USC (7). Go ducks!!

How bout some RESPECT? 9-0

Tigers_eye
November 10, 2006, 09:46 AM
1886 Football was invented at Rutgars. For the first time since 1926 Rutgar defeated a top five team. They have to be recognized. After being 7-25 hole in the first half against the nations second ranked offense I was worried. Howbout them Scarlet Knights. They shutout Louisville's high powered offense in the second half. Scored 21 unanswered points. 2 touchdowns, 2 field goals and a 2 point conversion.

As for respect, Louisville, Rutgars, W. Virginia all are good football teams. three great ones' I would add. But this is Rutgars first top 25 team that they faced this season. And as for Louisville they only faced W. Virginia and Rutgars. Same goes for W. Virginia. They will not face any ranked opponents in this season. As for Big east, the soft schedule will allow them to get to a BCS bowl, but not in any championship game for sure. As for Rutgars, Dec 2nd they will visit W. Virginia. Now that would be a true Big east championship game which most probably they will lose.

SEC:
For Florida (#6, highest ranked this season #2), they have played Tennessee(13), LSU(9), Auburn(11). They have Florida State and then SEC championship game. This is on top of an SEC killer schedule which has seen Alabama, Georgia and will face S Carolina.

Auburn (5, highest ranked this season #2), they have played Florida (2), LSU (6), Arkansas, will play Goergia and Bama. Will face Florida (6) again if they go to championship game.

LSU (#12, Highest ranked #6), they played Florida(5), Auburn (3), Tennessee (8). Will face Alabama, Arkansas (11).

Tennessee (#13, highest ranked #8), they destroyed Cal (9) and Georgia (10) lost to Florida (7) by 1 point and to LSU (13) on a last 10 second touchdown pass. They still have Arkansas (11) to play.

Arkansas (#11, highest ranked #11), they have beat Bama at home, beat Vandy, South Carolina at their field and destroyed Auburn at Auburn (2). They lost to USC (3). They will play Tennessee (13) and LSU (12) and may end up playing Florida (6) in the SEC championship game.

Similar story in PAC 10. Cal will face minimum of 4 top 25 ranked teams. USC 5. Oregon 3.

Big ten: Ohio State will face 4, Michigan 2 (Notre Dame and Ohio State).

Comparing to these schedules W. Virginia, Rutgars, Louisville schedule looks like cup cake for sure. Similar to Wisconsins. Had they been in SEC, week after week, the type of the opponents would just take a toll on these teams for sure. Specially Louisville. A minimum of 3 loss season would be the norm. As I said, offense gets the glory but defenses wins championships. Look at St. Louis Rams, Colts. And then look at New England and Pittsburg.

This is no way to take away the effort the Scarlet knights have put up in the field. They believed in themselves. They just wanted more than the cardinals yesterday. My hats off to them. Stenton is waiting. :)

Had it been not for the special team Louiville would have been blownout in this game.

1. 100 kick of return TD.
2. 2 point conversion on a blocked extra point.
3. Fake punt and 1st down conversion to keep the drive alive.
4. Ruffing the kicker on a punt and getting 1st down on 4th and 13 play, grr!!
5. Two punts down inside the 10 yards.

Rutgars defense should get the game ball for keeping them in the game. They may share it with Rice (133 yards, 75 of them came in the forth quarter alone).

Definante Bias towards the Big East, If RU finishes 12-0 then they would have beaten 11-1 W.Virginia, 11-1 Louisville, 8-4? Pitt, 8-4? S. Florida.

Btw: if RU beat Illini 33-0 and Ohio State beat the Illini 17-10, what does that say about the system.

It's pure garbage that if Louisville or W.Viginia finished 12-0 that they would play for the BCS game, but if RU goes 12-0 they go to the Orange Bowl?, and do u know whats even more garbage people saying if Ohio-State Michigan Game is a really good one that they should play again in the BCS title game.

Trust me if RU remains undefeated they will get a shot at Ohio State-Michigan winner for sure. Else, they may not go to BCS W. Virginia will. Rutgars W. Virginia is at W.V. :) Lots of games remaining. But for the game against Louisville...

RU was awesome baby. Their defense can compete with any SEC, Big 12, Pac 10 teams. They will get burned few times but they will play like a champion. They were just unfazed in the entire game and brought the heat all game long. I can't do the chop sign here but if I could I would have. Stay focus. On the Offense, can't say enough of Ray Rice and the offensive line and the NFL fullback (Yup!! he was suppose to play in a NFL team this season). The QB managed the game well enough to win. That's all they need to do to be undefeated.

Bring it on... all season long I was holding back on the hogs. Waiting for them stumble. Two more games. Will keep my lips sealed. One more victory will send them to Atlanta to SEC championship game against Florida. They will visit Mississippi State (who beat Alabama in the last game) and face LSU at Little Rock. winning the remaining games will send them in the BCS title game no matter what happens in the nation. Beating LSU, Auburn, Florida, Tennessee, Alabama, South Carolina (Spurrier) in one season would make them the best in the nation. Still lots of game to be played for the hogs.

Did anyone watch McFadden play this week or the week before? Last weekend 181 yards with a banged up toe which he had surgery on(Ran for 2 TDs, passed one). The week before 213 yards against USC Gamecocks. . My other Heisman finalist.

Since Ad Peterson is out this is how I see the heisman race.
1. Troy Smith (Leader of the best team in the nation)
2. Brady Quinn (Hype, all about ND hype, he is good but this season there are better candidates)
3. Stenton (W. Virginia)
4. Darren McFadden (Arkansas)
5. Ray Rice (Rutgars)

7. Lynch (Cal)

Where shall we start? #3 Louisville, #4 Texas, #5 Auburn, and #8 Cal all are out of the BCS title game and now standing out of the top ten. :) I am liking this BCS Sytem more and more.

Out of all the top ten team losses the worst was Auburn's. They were #2 when Arkansas unranked then, stunned them at home with 27-10 whopping. They crawl back on the pole I don't know how but may be through reputation to #5 again and at home then gets another whopping by Georgia 37-15. People still rank them among the top teams in the nation, why? I don't know. Over-rated.

Next comes Cal. How can you blow a halftime lead of 17-3 to a team who averaged 17 points in their last nine games? But I am all Cal now. Go beat USC and get to the Rose bowl in almost 50 years.

Florida (6) some how managed to South Carolina 17-16. They had two blocked field goals and a missed punts. I feel for Spurier.

Nabraska got lucky to catch a break and won against Texas A & M 28-27. They should have lost the game fair and square.

Woohoo Texas lost to Kansas State 42-45. If they lose next game to A & M they will not play for the Big 12 championship game against Nabraska. Oklahoma will. :)

Boise State won on a last second field goal 23-20. Keeps their BCS hope alive. UCLA beat Oregon State. :) That should take some BCS points out of USC. :)

Miami (FL) lost to Maryland 13-14. Coker will be fired if they lose the next one.

Wake has changed their history. No wake team has ever beaten Florida State at Tallahasse. They beat them 30-0. The second winningest coach in the history of college football, Bobby Bowden is in the hot seat. LSU, Arkansas, USC won with ease against good opponents. Arizona State, Ohio State, Penn, Michigan did what they had to do is keep focus and win big.

Games this week:
One of the most anticipated games in college football this season will be Ohio State (1) visiting Michigan (2). This should be an evenly fought game. I would side with any. Ohio State at home gets an edge. Jim Tressel (Ohio State) is 4-1 against Lloyd Carr (Michigan). In paper Ohio State has too many big play guys. Michigan has the defense to stop them. I love this matchup. Turnover may become an issue. Ohio State by 10.

Cal (17) at USC (4). Cal still make it to the BCS game if they can beat USC at the collisium. Easier said than done. I would support Cal al the way. Then against ND I would support USC in the following week. :)

Rutgars (7) at Cinci. Potential spoiler Cinci is waiting. However, there is too much on the line and Rutgars will come out victorious.

Va Tech (19) at Wake Forest (14). For the first time wake is trying to be 10-1.

Maryland (20) at Boston College (21). Another big game in deciding inter division champion.

W. Virginia (8) at Pittsburg. On the road is always difficult. We will see.

Reeling Tennesse (22) visiting Vandy. Spoiler may win this one. :)

With the loss can Louisville (10) pick them up against a good team South Florida?

Tigers_eye
November 20, 2006, 01:02 PM
Instant Classic. #1 vs #2. A great game. Michigan showed they were a worthy contender. Mike Hart showed he had a big heart. Ohio State is the undisputed #1 team in the nation. They will go to the national championship game. now they wait who would be their opponent.

As great as Michigan played I don't think they need another shot at Ohio State. That would be unfair to the other one loss teams, and unfair to Ohio State to face the same team twice. If USC finishes off unbeaten I think they can claim the #2 spot, Florida and Arkansas have two huge games left but if one of them stays unbeaten, specially Arkansas, then they should also have a shot at Ohio State. Running an SEC table should automatically put them above all. If Notre Dame beats USC then there is no way they can be #2 cause Michigan killed Notre Dame at Notre Dame. Then Michgan will see Ohio State which I would not like.

Rutgars with a bulls eye in their walked in to the bearcats who were ambushing. Cinci's big win has dropped Rutgars out of everything. W. Virginia will allow Louisville to win the Big East this season. :)

Boston College raised to the occation and took care of Maryland. Georgia Tech, Oklahoma, Florida, Louisville, Tennesse, Notre Dame, Arkansas, Boise State won their respective games.
USC ran away against Cal on the 4th quarter. It was tied 9-9. LSU some how managed to tie with a touchdown with 14 seconds left against Ole Miss to go to the overtime and then blocked a field goal and make their own to win it. Auburn was lucky to hold of Alabama. Hard to see Shula back at Alabama sidelines for next year.

Rivalry Week has began:
Notre Dame (5) at USC (3)
Florida (4) at Florida State
LSU (9) at Arkansas (6) "Battle of the boot"
National championship at stake.

Arizona State at Arizona
Oklahoma (13) at Oklahoma State
Georgia Tech (16) at Georgia
Mississippi State at Ole Mississippi
South Carolina at Clemson (24)
Virginia at Virginia Tech (17)
Oregon at Oregon State
Boston College (18) at Miami

My heart goes out to Chris Leak. What a season he had. Urban Myer will be a legend. They deserved to be the National Champions 2006-07. SEC's speed overwhelmed Ohio State. All season long the media potrayed that Ohio State was the best but in reality Florida, LSU, Auburn and even Tennessee can matchup with the best the nation has to offer. Next season we have to worry about Georgia, Alabama and Arkansas.

Gator's hold both the Basketball and Football National Championships. What a year!!! First time any school did that in 100 years.

Congrates to the University of Florida. They played as a team who wanted more.

Troy Smith is not the real deal and we found out. Ohio States, vaunted defense couldn't stop the high-flying Gators. The looks and skims that they saw at the films was so different in real time. The zones had holes all night long. One of the nations most prolific offense could only muster a touchdown against the speedy SEC defense. The were checked to a 89 yard total offense. That is so funny. Enough cry on Big 10 Football programs. Ohio State was out coached, out played from the second play of the game.

Ohio State was simply outplayed by Florida. Florida was so much more physical and quicker that OSU panicked. Chris Leak had a great game but I feel like OSU could get to him if they would've tried to pressure him a little more. Too much partying ehh? Troy Smith was terrible but most of the blame should go to OSU's offensive line. Florida D was too good. We should have a playoff for college football.
