Re: College Football 2012

USC toughs one out in Utah.

So tonight my family and I were driving to Orange County for a wedding (6 1/2 hours from home). BOTH the Rams and USC played tonight. I can't remember the last time I missed both a Rams and Trojans game in the same week. Maybe when I was in Australia? (1987).

Anyway, they both won, so maybe I should not watch more often....

I thought Texas and WVU would score pts... but MAN that was downright silly! And OSU - Nebraska?!?! 101 pts in a Big Ten game?

ESPN is going to lose it tomorrow. They had this FSU/USC championship game ready to go 2 months ago.

#3, #4, and #5 all go down in one night. This'll make the polls all topsy-turvy!

Re: College Football 2012

And Geno Smith may actually be the Heisman leader. Still a great deal of ball to be played. However... considering how much he throws and that he has yet to throw an interception......

Re: College Football 2012

I don't know much about Texas football, but is there a reason the Longhorns weren't throwing the ball more? Everyone in the country knows WVU has extreme difficulty defending the long pass, yet Texas runs the ball on what seemed like every 1st and 2nd down.

Probably because they haven't replaced Colt McCoy yet.

Did anyone remember to tell Texas they had a football game today?

In my 28 years of being a WVU fan I've learned to never underestimate the Mountaineers' ability to completely fall apart at the most inconvenient times.

*sigh* It was a good run while it lasted.

Alabama continues to roll!!!

A friend of mine is a big Notre Dame fan, and I told him if Bama and Notre Dame end up in the BCS NCG, we're going to Miami no matter what the tickets cost.

I'm going to visit family in South Bend next weekend, so we're going to the ND/BYU game. We've got great seats, should be an awesome game!

I'm gonna have to remember that one, and make sure to bet appropriately in Vegas when the time comes.

Oh I am sure the Irish will get some kind of help if they're anywhere close. Their game against Stanford as an example.

Re: College Football 2012

I'm always whining about ND being overrated, but I think they're legitimate contenders this year. But, if Alabama and Oregon go undefeated too, they're not getting into a championship game this year. I'm pretty sure Oklahoma is going to clean their clock, though.
