    Didn't have high hopes for my team this year, but losing to Sacramento State pretty much kills any hope there was. And now we have Wisconsin next week in Camp Randall, going to be a massacre. Only positive is we have the leading rusher in CFB at the moment, will be interesting to see how he does the rest of the season.

    Maryland's uniforms were amazing. I am biased as alumni. Was at the game tonight, what a finish.

    Rambo, I hate to say it, but everyone loves when the Hurricanes lose.

    I know how it feels to love the most hated team, though. I'm a life long Cowboys fan.

    Bobo's playcalling is absolutely baffling. Even when he does open it up some, he calls somethng completely boneheaded on the next play. For example, it was great to see Georgia try to throw down the field on first down, but it was infuriating to see Bobo call a run up the middle on second-and-10 when the pass didn't work out.

    There's a part of me that hopes BSU was just that good, and Georgia will bounce back against USC this week, continuing to improve dramatically as the young guys gain experience. However, it's hard to have a lot of faith in that happening right now. I could have dealt with it if Georgia had simply lost to BSU - there's no shame losing to a top-five team - but what concerns me is how similar Saturday night looked to last season. It's one thing to lose to a great team; it's another thing entirely to lose while making the same mistakes that got you into trouble last year, especially when all of the offseason talk centered around fixing those mistakes.

    This weekend will be very, very telling for Georgia.


    Incorrect.

    It's disturbing to me that Tech fans are so content with being the little brother who has simply accepted the fact that big bro will beat on them whenever he feels like it.

    His seat's not as hot as everyone seems to think, at least not yet. Beat USC this weekend, and all the "hot seat" talk will vanish.

    Texas beats fucking Rice and moves into the top 25. I have no idea how good Texas is this year and might never find out if I don't figure out who will go through the trouble of getting the Longhorn Network.

    Well Rice is known for its prowess on the gridiron, so that ought to tell you something, no?

    ^^ Neither Auburn nor TCU belong in that top 25.

    On a more important note, Texas A&M to the SEC is almost official, provided someone finds a way to appease Baylor.

    Another reason to hate the Baptists with a passion.

    No one else is sad at the implosion of the Big 12? I like the regional rivalries. :(

    what i don't get is why don't these schools form their own conference rather than trying to join another? I mean if you have UT, OU, BYU Arkansas, + a few other "legit" football schools, surely a BCS berth would come with that...

    I do, actually, but Texas took advantage of a situation that is unfair in a purist's sense but is par for how college football has been and becoming more dominated with. Because of that, the rest of the conference schools need to act quickly to maintain the strength of their position and not just become a bitch of Texas.

    That being said, the most exciting prospect is Texas becoming a Pac-whatever team and I get to see them play at least once a year in person.

    The conferences control the TV contracts already... that's a big part of it. Also why ND won't join a conference and why the Big 10 and SEC are attracting new teams (they each have a dedicated network plus a major TV deal w/ ABC and CBS, respectively). As far as I know, the bowl bids are owned by the TV networks and apportioned to the conferences with the TV deals. That's also why each team in a conference gets a portion of the money when one team makes a BCS bowl.

    The money is ruining college football. Say what you will, but the sport used to have a sense of history and integrity. Now it's all a bunch of jerks chasing big bucks.

    The Texas OU rivalry is a big deal to North Texas and is older by far than all this BCS nonsense. Now they are acting like breaking it up because UT wants to run a tv network that nobody watches.

    I don't think they'll break that up regardless of what conference OU sits in. UF and FSU manage to play a rivalry game every year, despite being in different conferences.

    That said, the money comes with good and bad. It's nice to be able to watch more than one college football game per Saturday.

    I'd hope not. There's been some talk about it but I'm hoping it's idle chatter.
