yes, Nebraska shocked a lot of people yesterday ( including me)

I would have loved to see the game end near the 50 yard line with the score 12-10.

And I think flyingwriter got this one.

If you click that little arrow next to the quote, it takes you to their post for easy repping.

Conrgats to TTDave and flyingwriter.

I'll be sending rep points your way.

Right. They are the worst 12-0 teams in the country. A mind is a terrible thing to waste.

There are some people that think they might be the worst of the 12-0 teams this year.

We'll never know if its true or not. LOL.

You want to call OU and NU great teams this year, go for it, but the whole "facts and stats" will tell a different story

Why don't you name the great teams they have played this year?

You can't because they haven't.

FWIW I am not slamming UT for their schedule, they ran the table. Nothing more to do. I am just saying that they haven't played any great teams like you had asserted.
You can't honestly say Nebraska is just mediocre. They are 9-4 and within 4 points of 12-1. Mediocre was the Calladouche era.

I went off who got closest to the total point total.

flyingwriter came in within one point of the point total.

go hokies go came closer to each individual teams score.

I can see it both ways.

go hokies go maybe appears closer though.

On second thought I think the way that you figured it would be correct.

I think too much on the over/under sometimes.

I'll rep em both, I hand that stuff out like candy anyways, LOL.

Lost to Iowa State and Tech at home. 83rd in total offense.

Above average maybe?
