I'VE HAD JUST ABOUT ENOUGH OF YOU SONNY
The success our offense enjoyed vs. Indiana, compounded by prior struggles, entices Borges to roll out the same game plan vs. Sparty. Scary, given how Sparty keys on our schemes all year. Throwing a predictable game plan at them in two weeks, on the road no less, bodes very poorly.
Borges has two weeks to prepare. Can he throw some surprises at them under the old “I know that you know that I know” gambit, where he knows Sparty will key on stopping the exact same game plan UM rolled out vs. Indiana?
Personally not holding my breath. I anticipate Staee stacking the box and daring Gardner to throw into their extremely talented secondary, where he’ll be under severe pressure all day long, with little time for his receivers to finish their routes.
How to counter this Big Al? The universe sees this coming in two weeks.
SLIGHT MOD EDIT: Changed "Staee" to "State". Come now, folks. - LSA

We all know that the Rock will be coming to the Big House next year, which like it or not, is pretty exciting for the players I am sure.
This week, Slippery Rock (6-1) defeated Clarion by a score of 34-10, outgaining them by a 506-261 total yardage margin Saturday afternoon. Senior QB Nigel Barksdale had another good game, completing 17 of 32 passes for 276 yards and two TDs.
For the season the Rock is averaging 572 yards per game and 47 points per game, and are now ranked #24 in the latest poll.
Next week the Rock takes on Edinboro University (The Fighing Scots) on the road.
So I'm sure you can do this with a ton of schedules once you actualy start cross-referencing, but the facts are still laughable. The genesis behind this was when I looked at the rankings at 7pm tonight on my phone and had the reaction ... 'Missouri is #5 and Auburn is #14!?!?!?'
Let's start with Auburn. That's the lesser offense here.
Auburn beat Texas A&M. I'm surprised they jumped that much, but it's not unheard of.
For what it's worth, outside of A&M, Auburn has beaten the following teams this year: Ole Miss, Western Carolina, Miss St, Arkansas State, Washington State.
Now, Missouri. Oooooh Missouri, you bastards.
Two points to set up my argument:
- LSU's opponent win% is .500 (24-24). Their best wins are Auburn (previously unranked), TCU, and Florida
- South Carolina's opponent win% is sub-.500. Their best wins are North Carolina and Vanderbilt
OK, so Missouri went from "receiving votes" to #5 by beating Florida and Georgia.
- Florida & Georgia are unraked, both 4-3.
- Florida & Georgia's best wins collectively are South Carolina (see above), and LSU (see above). The other 6 wins between Florida & Georgia are against North Texas, Tennessee (2x), Toledo, Kentucky, and Arkansas.
- Missouri's other wins? Murray State, Toledo, Indiana, Vandy and Arkansas State.
It ..... gets ......... better:
The teams #5 Missouri has beaten this year ... below IS THE FULL LIST OF TEAMS THOSE SCHOOLS HAVE WINS AGAINST:
Campbellsville, Missouri State, Central Michigan, Jacksonville State, Tennessee Tech, Austin Peay (2x), Eastern Washington, Western Michigan, Navy (2OT), Arkansas Pine-Bluff, Troy, Idaho, Georgia, UMass, UAB, South Carolina, North Texas, Tennessee (2x), Toledo, Kentucky, Arkansas.
Ladies & Gentlemen, your #5 team in the nation, SOLEY because they play in the SEC.
The Colts lead the Broncos 26-14 at half right now. Also, the Lions lost on a GW field goal. The Patriots lost on a GW field goal after a very controversial call, so much so the NFL changed its rulebook.
