Alabama is looking for the upset, today, against Arkansas. Personally, I think our Terry Grant is just as good as McFadden... our defense may allow the Tide a bigger rushing game than Arkansas' future Heisman winner.

Words cannot express how amazing that game was. Easily the best game I've ever witnessed... It was something special, sitting there on the 30 yard line, and seeing that game winning catch with .08 seconds remaining. Wow.

Roll Tide.

Today's games really surprised me, particularly my own TAMU game. Stephen McGee was actually throwing the ball and ended up with 237 passing yards, something I haven't seen done by A&M in my history of keeping up with college football (A&M has a very conservative playbook, usually running options). I was very impressed with the offense, but I think the defense still needs work. They were having trouble holding ULM back, and I worry how they will do against the other Big XII teams (especially since the bigger games are on the road). Hopefully the Ags can get it worked out before Thursday's game against Miami.

I feel bad for Nebraska (who I wanted to win) but good lord, USC is a monster. I think the game would have been closer had Nebraska showed their 4th quarter fire a little earlier. Upsets were definately the theme of the week. I was amazed that Bama was able to pick up the win against Arkansas, Utah pwned UCLA, and Kentucky got the W over Louisville. Texas was almost upset as well. I was also surprised that Michigan beat Notre Dame, but only because I thought both teams would find a way to lose.

So far (and things will DEFINATELY change) it looks like the National Championship could be USC vs. either LSU or Oklahoma but we'll have to wait and see how all the teams do once Conference games begin...

Same here.  I'm sucking it up in my pick 'em league.  I missed 3 or 4 out of 10 - last season seemed downright easy in comparison.


I was also surprised at the complete ass kicking the Gators laid on Tennessee.  I was pretty sure the Gators would win at home - but to put up 59 on them was awesome.

Next week will be the real chance to see where they are as a team.  Should be interesting.

LSU will destroy USC for the title. Think Florida v. Ohio State.

Yeah, even though USC crushed us, I wouldn't be at all surprised if they lost somewhere along the line this season.  Our defense made their running back look like NFL stars, but the holes they had you could have driven a truck through.  It may have been good blocking, but I think some of it was poor D as well.  I mean, they were obviously a more talented team than we are, but I'm not so sure they're the best team in the country either.  Oklahoma sure looks dangerous so far, as well as LSU.

I don't think anything will be surprising about Notre Dame. They've got a weak schedule, and will still go about 6-6. I wouldn't be surprised if they went 0 and 4 before their first win.

09/01   Ga Tech                       L 33-3
09/08   at #14 Penn State   L 31-10
09/15   at Michigan               L 38-0
09/22   Mich St                        L 31-14

Obviously, 6-6 was far, far too generous. 2-10 is sounding good.

Little late here, but what did everyone think of "Upset Saturday" this past weekend?

Florida loses
Texas loses
Oklahoma loses
West Virginia loses
Rutgers loses
Clemson loses
etc., etc.

Crazy stuff, and the top 10 is very interesting to say the least...

Enh - college football rankings are such a joke.  How is it possible that all these teams were upset, but my undefeated Wisconsin Badgers never move up the ranking?   ::)

Clemson loses

Clemson losing should come as no surprise. They had best prepare themselves for November.

Carolina Gamecocks, #11!~  :D

Badgers too.  At least the Packers are still undefeated.   ;D

Gators too - a couple of late turnovers ruined an otherwise great shot at winning that game.
