To change tempo and brake up this bickering,

What do War Eaglers think of their Tigers tonite? They were young but played very tenaciously (god that turf was slippery) capitalizing excellently on WVU gaffes. Could they be ranked soon? It'll be an interesting race in the SEC.

Fans helped too as always (still be a cold day in hell when I brave down pours for a sporting event though).

That's a bad fall for USC, they'll still be ranked cause their USC but man. It'll be interesting to see them fight Cal.

Cant wait to see the Huskies in a few years. Looks like FSU is actually in the game again, beating BYU at home decisively.

I am an Alabama Fan, but it was speculated for them to hit the top 25 if they took care of business with WVU, I don't know if it was the rain but, it doesn't seem as if they did enough.

I don't mind Auburn being in the top 25 and like to see all SEC teams do well but, hubby is the kind that wants them to lose and get injured in the process. Ha! He does have a point in that it will keep Ala ahead in recruiting.

Congrats Auburn for pulling it out!

Texas had better step it up if they hope to keep that #2 ranking. Colt has been anything but impressive this year

Before yesterday I thought that was just one real good team in CFB (UF)

Now I think the whole thing is up for grabs. I am impressed by no one team at all.

Who knows whats going to happen. The Big XII is WIDE open IMO.

Colt and Tebow have been less than spectacular for sure.

UT looks good in the 2nd halves though.

I completely agree with you...for once

This year reminds me of 2007 (I believe) when it seemed like every team lost and were actually playing not to get into the NC. UT and UF haven't lost yet, but haven't looked all that great. I have a feeling there is going to be some heavy attrition come conference time.

I think every conference is wide open. But, your OU looked good with that talented 2nd string QB. (OK, my OU lovefest is over ...resume combat )

Yeah, I know its early but I don't remember the last time when OU was #1 in Rushing defense, scoring defense, and tackles for a loss. Shutting out Tulsa is no small feat by any means.

The problem is that our schedule is super tough. Whatevs, I'm just happy its FB season.

FWIW I think you guys handle Cal next week, UM exploited some of their weakness, they are one dimensional, very good one demension though. I like your running game to eat up the clock and the crowd to keep them out of the game.

I agree about Cal, overall a good team with a good QB like Lou Holtz pointed out. But they have to be better than the Best (pun intended)
