Upvote for the Francis "Psycho" Soyer reference. First time I watched a movie on a vcr, back in college. I made my buddy rewind that part and play it again about 4 or 5 times and kept laughing my ass off. I was not close to sober at the time.
If they want to keep playing hopefully they end up with some PT at a new school and a free year of grad school.
I would have thought MSU would have done better at least, but their at 29. I guess looking out of the conference I'm surprised Baylor and TCU are only 37 and 40.
Had to upvote your name. Saw those guys about 25 years ago during Jazzfest.
Hope we get to see the young man play this year and that he's got his life in order.
Their O-lines seem to generally be high quality, and Wisconsin does stick to the smash mouth philosophy so they get a lot of carries.
While I think the 4 team playoff is better than 2 team BCS, which was better than just bowl games, I think 8 team playoff is probably optimum number and 24 would be stupid. I am interested in seeing the P5 conference champs all settling it on the field, with 3 others (best runnerups, Notre Dame, or some highly rated team from one of the other 5 conferences). One of my friends at work, a VA Tech fan said the other day he wanted a 16 team playoff so all 10 conferences could make it in, I told him dude you can't even name the other 5 conferences. Actually we both tried and gave up after 3 of them. Plus, I could see FCS conferences moving up to get an automatic bid to the playoffs like D2 schools moving up in basketball and now March Madness has those idiotic playin games.
Had to upvote the Idiocracy references in this thread. Jay Droney drinks a lot of Brondo.
So would the OP want FSU 1 and Marshall 2 since they haven't left it up to the judges? As far as OSU, I could probably make an argument for them at 7 to 4, but would probably have put them in at 5 this week. Although if OSU and the others in front of them won out, I would put them in front of MSU since they won their conf.
OSU at 6th looks pretty good, although I think they should have jumped TCU since almost losing to Kansas should be worse than Baylor's bye. All the endless speculation about how the committee should/may/might interpret all the other games is making me remember why I want an 8 team playoff with each P5 conference winner.
Amazing that he only runs a 4.79. He has looked faster in games. I would have thought 4.5. Maybe next time they time him, they should one of the linebackers or safety's chase after him. He may only run fast when he has incentive. Sorta like I tell my 10 year old daughter to run faster "imagine their is a big mean dog chasing you."
They are overrated this year. Both Big divisions are probably better than the SEC East. Having the two best coaches rank up 5 titles in 7 years was impressive, just need Saban to leave and have Lane Kiffen do a Muschamp to Bama. But I think the Pac South is pretty close to the SEC West for divisions. If TTUN gets a real coach, I think with PSU coming back the Big West could challenge them for best division within 2 years.
Still makes me laugh, only 2 more probably favored games for Mizzou and Indiana will have beaten an SEC division winner.
I love these old articles. Leading receivers with 3 receptions and 49 yards. 3 yards and a cloud of dust days. Thanks for the memories.
He'll just have to put about a 15 second hang time and make it down the field. I have confidence in him.
One of my coworkers was complaining to me about FSU this week and how it was unfair how OSU got hammered while FSU keeps getting away with this stuff. Oh, and my coworker is an Auburn fan. Yes even $EC fans are noticing this BS.
I will go with Nebraska 34-24, probably less prediction than hope. Like I hope they are pissed for losing the bye week and dropping 3 spots.
Just looked and Cincy had 2 votes in coaches poll and ECU had 3. Hopefully Cincy wins out to get ranked by the end of the year.
Looking at the others receiving votes Minnesota coming in around 27 and 30, so hopefully a convincing road win occurs. Even better if its by more than the 23 TCU beat them at home. I'm a little surprised Duke is only 19th at 8-1.
Thanks for the insight. I have wide receiver gloves because I used to like to jog carrying dumbells and they had a nice grip, but I always thought they would be weird to play with.
Nice job on stat comparison. As others have noted final scores made Oregon appear to have a better game than they did and OSU a little worse than they did. Looking over the box scores Oregon did not take their final lead until 1.34 left in the third quarter (32-27) while OSU was leading by two scores at that point (35-24). Oregon's greater margin is because of a garbage time TD scored with 1.25 left, I would agree OSU's win over MSU is more impressive. Here are the box scores for the two games if anyone is interested http://espn.go.com/ncf/boxscore?id=400547958
It would be odd if OSU wins out, misses the playoff and then plays FSU. If FSU isn't in, then I think OSU would be in. I agree, I would love to Bosa and company smack around Winston. Maybe more than beating Bama.
I don't think we'll know until next year when the coaches seem them throwing to the same receivers. I wouldn't mind seeing a Joe Germaine/Stanley Jackson two QB situation. Meyer seemed to figure out how to use Leak and Tebow, so I figure the coaches will come up with excellent solution for the "problem" of having the last 3 Big offensive players of the year playing the same position on the same team.
If FSU loses in the ACC championship game, I don't think they would get in over a 1 loss OSU. Duke would have an argument for getting in if they still only had one loss. If conf championships and head to head count a lot if both teams have one loss, then Baylor should have a better argument than TCU if they both win out. OSU may have better argument than Baylor with their horrible out of conference games. Illinois did OSU no favor beating Minnesota a couple of weeks ago they would probably be 20 or better after beating down Iowa.
