    The rankings really must not respect the Big 12 much. Alabama at #2, Notre Dame at #4, Iowa #5, then the Big 12 teams. Even Stanford is ahead of OK State.

    I think part of the bias is geographic - most of the schools are in "flyover country". Also, the complete lack of defense played is usually held against them.

    They Big 12 is top heavy and most of the Top 4 teams haven't played each other yet. That changes this month. If one runs the table, they'll end up in the Top Four.

    I'm glad I never posted my LSU-Clemson-Baylor-Ohio State final four prediction from September.

    Although I'm gonna go with Clemson ND Utah/Iowa and OK State now. I would be so erect if that happened.

    I have the feeling you're going to be disappointed about Utah, even if they win the Pac12.

    Utah would lose to Stanford in the title game anyway

    Yeah much too much chaos has to happen for Utah to get in.

    Utah is going to lose to UCLA Arizona so don't worry about it.

    Hopefully. Honestly, as long as we beat USC I don't care.

    (Mainly because if we win out, we have to play Stanford in the Title game, and the first time was bad enough)

    I felt bad about Northwestern struggling to beat Purdue. Then I saw a 45 point favorite TCU almost pull a Clemson.

    Arkansas knocks off second Top 15 team on the road in as many weeks. [​IMG]

    OU-BU is entertaining as heck.

    I couldn't squeeze in Stanford-Oregon. Too much good football. I love Saturdays in the fall.

    That's all we got left now jeezus! Seems lock-down defense with a lead at the end of the game doesn't work so well with a skeleton crew.


    What did I miss? I really wasn't too into the games today for some reason.

    Two 'fumbles' that weren't (but both gave WSU possession- one of them inside our 10)

    And this non-holding by their RT on the last play that gave WSU a TD (I wonder why he had 10 seconds to pass)

    Oh FFS… I was wondering what happened after we scored. I got caught doing something and came back to a loss. Perhaps better I missed it because I would have blown a fuse. :censored:

    The sec is legitimately bad. Florida shouldn't be ranked.

    Lolol. Ezekiel Elliot calling out his coaches and saying because of the play calling he won't come back next year.

    He wouldn't be back next year even if he had 300 rush yards in the game. He's a 1st rounder, early 2nd round at worst. There's no reason for him to go back

    Question is whether he gets punished or not. I can't imagine tolerating that stuff as a coach.
