    I am watching USF's O-Line meltdown. Don't know if it's because they have a big man on the sideline, but it is sack city out there. even with a 3 man rush.

    Nice fake field goal for a TD by Rutgers.

    OSU needs to watch out this week. There is a serious curse this year on the high ranked teams. :doot:

    Kind of convoluted thinking on my part, but I've been rooting for the upsets/underdogs all season. Once App. State kicked things off by beating Michigan, I've really had fun/been amazed at all the upsets. However, tonight I really want USF to win. Even though they aren't the underdogs in tonight's game, they are kind of the underdogs of the BCS.

    Hope that makes sense.

    Season of upsets continues.

    I wish it would carry over into HS ball. My son's team are the serious underdogs tomorrow night. Nothing more painful than watching your kid's team get beat like a drum.

    It has been a depressing season so far.

    Sounds like my high school football team. We played 10 games a year.

    Our record during my tenure on the team was 0-40.

    *sigh*

    Not one win. We got demolished everytime we went up. Once we almost beat Hyde Park but we lost.

    It hasn't been quite that bad. We did start out the season with a major upset. Too bad it wasn't district.

    We also play a team that won't win a game all season. Our coach was very gracious and had the third string in by the second half. We won by 30 or so points, other teams are drumming them by 70. No excuse for that IMO. I really admire the kids who go out and play each week, even though they know they are going to get beat.

    It's only a matter of time until Ohio State loses. This has been one of the craziest college football seasons in quite some while.

    yeah, BC should predictably lose next Thursday.

    i bet by the end of the year all of the preseason top 10 teams will magically fall back into place when every team ahead of them lost. it'll be awesome.

    Ray Rice anybody? He showed me that he had more speed than I initially thought. USF has a pretty fast defense and he did a good job of both getting around the corner and bursting up the middle.

    I don't know if I'd spend a first on him but if we traded down I'd consider him in the 2nd or 3rd? what's his draft projection?

    i'm not sure how anyone can think Rice isn't a 1st rounder. he and Mike Hart.

    How does our backfield sound with Rice/Taylor or Hart/Taylor?

    I like Rice.
    Watch a few games last year as well as this year.
    I'm afraid his stock will rise a bit too high, 'cause it seems like he can be a work horse.
    He blocks pretty well, too!
