Unbelievable week for college Football.
VA Tech losing to East Carolina @ home.
So Cal to Boston College.
Iowa to Iowa State.
Georgia to USC. I kinda called it.

B1G is a mess. 23-13 (63%) non-conference games. Clearly way down.

Big12 is 18-7. (72%)
ACC 26-5. (83%)
PAC12 26-4. (86%)
SEC 27-2. (93%)

Check out the SEC West. AP poll 5 ranked in the top 10 and 6th almost ranked.

3. Alabama
5. Auburn
6. A&M
8. LSU
10. Ole Miss
28. Miss State
43. Arkansas

SEC East have 3 ranked.

13. Georgia
14. S Carolina
18. Missouri
34. Florida

The entire B1G have only 4 ranked. None in the top 10.
11. MIch State
19. Wisconsin
23. Ohio State
24. Nebraska

We are comparing division vs conferences. That is funny.

SEC is basically a professional league. These teams don't play like college teams. Most of these players are destined for the pros.

Jameis Winston can't stay out of trouble. Suspended for the 1st half by FSU.

Degrading women is the norm in America. The women/girls like it as well.

What a screwed up week for college Football.
I kinda had Utes, Ga Tech, Miss State and E Carolina as winners. Never thought Mizzou would have trouble at home against Indiana. Or Oregon barely would win, or Ok would have their hands full.

That Clemson ugly loss to FSU; that was bad. Very bad. Missed field goals, 2 of them. And then stupid play calling in 4 and inches in the over time. QB sneak Dabo!!! Lost 2 yards on the play and the ball game.

Arkansas handled NIU nicely; jumping on them 21 - 0 in the first quarter. All three department scored once. Special teams, defense and offense.

Miss State win was a wild one. It shouldn't have been this close. Stupid substitution of the center back fired and LSU scored 14 points in 29 seconds with a 1:38 left in the clock.

Michigan, Miami and Florida are about to cane their coaches. Well, may be end of the season.

Default Week 5 schedule

TTech @ (24) OK State
(11) UCLA @ (15) AZ State
Tenn @ (12) Georgia (UGA is so over-rated but at home, so should not lose; plus Tenn is awefully young)
Vandy @ UK (bottom feeders)
(1) FSU @ NC State
Hogs @ (6) A&M
Minn @ Michigan (Nail in the coffin?)
Texas @ Kansas (big test for Texas on the road)
Mizzou @ (13) USCe
Cincy @ (22) Ohio State (Upset alert)
Oregon St @ (18) USC (really? So Cal #18 after losing shamelessly against Boston College?)

Can't wait for week 4 melt down.

^You forgot the Irish against my Orange bhai Although it's really unlikely my Orange will pull out a victory. Irish as always are overrated but still have a better and more complete squad than ours. Would be nice though if we could pull the upset off

If there was any irish hater in this forum it would be me. An upset by the Oranges would be an early Eid present. Every year I wait till their first loss. Hate their NBC contract. Hate their ugly fanbase. I think they should be forced to join B1G or ACC or Pac12. They don't play any Conference Championship game. Yet they have a clause to get in to the playoffs. Why the special treatment? Enough with my rant.

SEC are always hella dominant, but what percentage of their players are actually recruited from the southeast? Mizz doesn't count and TX teams might qualify as southern but def not southeastern.

By the way, Miss State has entered the top 20. 6 teams form West is ranked now.
+++
Fl. GA, LA, MS - all hot bed for recruiting. Per capita I thin Mississippi, Louisiana, Georgia produces D-1 players the most. Florida is up there just by shear #s.

TX is the largest and everyone poaches that state since Austin is having some trouble getting them 5 stars. We don't mess with West coast. Midwest and Northeast only produces linemen as it may seem.
+++
Baylor is the only team that impresses me. With 2/3 stars they sure are building something special. TCU is a drug cartel. SMU got the death penalty. That leaves A&M rule supreme. All SEC teams recruits in Texas.

You spoke my mind. Hate the Irish for those reasons as well. Even in this game their delusional fans think they'll beat us by 40-50. Who'd they beat this year that's so good to have their heads up that high? Rice doesn't count. Michigan's been overrated for a while and Purdue's a subpar team. Even then they struggled with Purdue at home. I know my Orange aren't the best and ND is better but this is a winnable game. Just can't turn the ball over and have to focus what we do best, run the football.

Everyone will hype up UCLA. But the truth is they gave up 626 yards to AZ State. If not for the 4 turnovers the Sundevils made... we would be discussing Is Mora right for UCLA.

Tough loss for my hogs last week. We were up by 14 points in the 4 Quarter and then a huge run to the A&M's 2 yard negated by tripping penalty. That would have sealed the game. We somehow manage to lose the game in overtime. Utterly disappointed.

Anyways, we have a bye this week. So will enjoy other games tension free.

What a week we have and it already started. #2 Oregon lost to unranked Arizona at home. Last year they lost to them 42-12.

Bama plays @ Ole Miss. Huge upset brewing I think.
Then A&M visiting Miss State. That would be another upset as well.

Nebraska - Ameer Abdullah (suppose to be in NFL) will take on Michigan State at East Lansing. Should be a great game.

Stanford @ Notre Dame. Baylor @ Texas. Texas backs are mouthing. I hope Baylor hangs 70 on them.

Another big game would be LSU @ Auburn. I think this will be close but Auburn pulling away at the end at home.

Ohio State @ Maryland and Wisky @ NW'ern.

I would be keeping an eye on Florida @ Tenn. Michigan @ Rutgers. Miami @ Ga Tech.

#2 Oregon (Overrated)
#3 Bama (See above)
#4 Oklahoma See #2 and #3)
#6 A&M (extremely overrated)
#8 UCLA (there were signs of problems)
#14 Stanford (heartbreaking)
#15 LSU (overrated)
#16 USC (chokers)
#17 Wisconsin (overrated)
#18 BYU (undefeated season gone)
#19 Nebraska (Facepalm)

11 teams went down this weekend. 7 undefeated teams lost with 3 at home. I called out some of the games as the setup was perfect to predict.

Most complete game of the season by UGA. Who would have thought it would happen without Gurley? Super stoked for GA/FL in a few weeks, this will be my first time going to Jacksonville. Super duper excited for the Nov 15 home game against Auburn, hopefully it'll be a night game. I've been at UGA for 4 years now and I think we've had maybe 2-3 night games in that span? None of which were against strong opponents.

How are you Rommel. Haven't seen you around posting. Anyways, I wish for an injury-free asswhipping on the Dawgs. Worry about Florida later on!!

38-22 Hogs!! WPS - Razorbacks!!!

I've been well! Just busy with School mainly. Thanks for asking. I'm hoping to be able to post a little more during the Zim series as a lot of my Exams just ended, meaning I'll have a lighter load the next few weeks or so. How are you?

The Arkansas game this Saturday will be very tough. You guys have looked really good this season and should have beaten Bama last week. There is a slight chance Gurley may be reinstated for this game but we'll see. Hopefully our defense can play well again and stop the run. Going on the road in the SEC is always tough.

My Prediction: UGA 20, ARK 17

That Bama game was so demoralizing. We left 17 points on the field. A touchdown fumbled right before the endzone and ball going out of bounce and touchback Bama getting the ball @20. 20 something yard fieldgoal fumble snap. Grrrr!!! Any of them could win the game.

The A&M game was even worse. Touchdown negated by a holding call. we go up by three scores in the forth. Didn't happen. A long run ending at the 2 yard line called back for a tripping penalty. That would have sealed the game right there. Tripping?

This is a young team who has yet to learn how to win in the 4th Qtr. I think they solve the problem only because of bobo's play calling.

Gurley is not playing this Saturday. LINK. They will ride the chubb bus.
