1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Honestly, I'd take that over snow or rain all the time.

    That goal line stand by the Buckeyes was legendary. Montee Ball tried to leap over the pile into the EZ and not only got stuffed, but fumbled and turned the ball over. Awesome.

    Wisky has the ball back but just got sacked for a loss of 11.

    Of course he had gotten a first down on the previous play, but the refs didn't see fit to give it to him.

    Also Stanford is playing fucking incredible D right now

    Edit: Holy shit Kstate down by 21. Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

    Man this Oregon/Stanford game is waaaay closer than I predicted. I am very uncomfortable right now. Mariota is looking more flustered in this game than I've ever seen him.

    Where the fuck is Oregon's passing game right now. Stanford is not a great pass-defense team. Why can't UO's receivers get open?

    A regions population makeup does not necessarily equal conference makeup. Top tier teams recruit from everywhere. Also, last I checked the Big 10 was still the richest conference... plus it's top two programs historically, OSU & UM, are on the upswing.


    Ugh fucking Kstate. I'm gonna blame them if Alabama sneaks back into the BCS championship game.

    edit: and Oregon too

    Sorry dude, but your team needs a placekicker before you can talk about them beating an SEC team in a BCS Championship game (which the SEC has never lost)

    So what happens when Notre Dame chokes next week? Who is the second team in the BCS title game besides the SEC winner? If it came from the SEC, it would be a team that didn't play in the conference title game, like Florida. It could be Florida State, but they have a bad loss. Probably not K-State, who also has a bad loss. Notre Dame couldn't go to the NC off a loss. Surely. Right?

    Well, whatever happens, I'll just sit on the sidelines and conjecture how the Buckeyes would have beaten whomever if they were eligible.

    Petty cash and tattoos are waaaaaaaaaay better than BCS titles anyway. The sanctions were worth it.

    Was just about to post about this. May not matter if Barkley's injury turns out to be a big deal, since I dunno if USC has much of chance without him.
    But yeah... who goes? Maybe KSU or OR would actually have a chance despite just losing?

    Right now, (excluding ALA and UG who'll be in the sec champ game, and OR and KSU)
    Florida
    LSU
    Texas A&M
    S Carolina
    FSU
    Clemson

    An SEC team would have to be a team that didn't get into their conf champ game, and other than FL, would be a 2 loss team.
