    David Ash's fuck-ups in the middle of the 4th quarter basically cost Texas the game.

    The whole Georgia State gimmick was fucking weird.

    They had to play pretty near perfect offense to win against WVU's team.

    WHOOOP!! - Manziel pulls out a last-minute comeback. It's looking like I was way wrong about this kid, and about Sumlin too. (No, I didn't catch the game, but after I saw the eighth all-caps WHOOP on fb I figured we must have won).

    UH is starting to hit their stride under Pilant, surprisingly enough. It was looking bad at the beginning there.

    MrG - what happened mang?

    Classic FSU football the last ten or twelve years. What a joke. Terrible coaching.

    This one shocked me. I didn't watch any of that game, but figured FSU would come away with the win, somewhat easily. Did a double-take when I saw the final score.

    I don't put anyone past anything right now. Except Bama. :(

    The ACC is undoubtedly the shittiest BCS conference in football. I think the Big Ten would steamroll us.

    Does the Big East still count as a BCS conference?

    At the beginning of the year I'd have said yes. Now...not so much. It'd be quite the battle with Michigan, Michigan State and Nebraska all looking terrible at least once so far.

    All is almost back to normal in college football. Alabama is at the top of the polls, Auburn lost, and Florida State lost to a team they should have crushed. Now if only West Virginia would lose. I'm so sick of ESPN blowing Geno Smith, get off your knees guys. South Carolina looks like they might be the only team in the SEC to challenge my Tide this year. Also, Florida and Notre Dame are nice surprises this year.

    The Big Ten is the best conference in college football. The problem is that the teams are so good that they tucker each other out when they play each other. That's why they lose when they play out of conference. (You might want to point out that they sometimes lose games before the conference schedule begins. But that's because they practice so hard, knowing they need to be at their best to defeat their conference foes. Once again, the tuckering out effect is in play.)

    Some news coming out that Aaron Murray found out that his dad had been diagnosed with thyroid cancer last week and, as a result, hadn't slept much before the big game.

    Really serves as a reminder that football players are people too and that, at the end of the day, it's just a game.
