fair point that
That's just dirty
Looks like Greg Robinson found work.. Oh wait thats Nick Holt.
At least ESPN is subliminally suggesting Go Blue every few minutes!
Andrew Luck is the next Jay Cutler, book it. If I had the oppurtunity to trade back and get RG3 with a few extra picks, I would damn sure do it.
Is it me or do both of these teams look a little undersized?
Baylor falls for the draw play and gives up the 1st down on 3rd and 9. sad face.
It's ok the faster UW scores the faster RG3 gets back on the field.
Has it occurred to any of the folks complaining about the computers' love of the Big 12 this year that the computers might be right?
You do know Washington sucks? The Big 12 is hard to predict to be as unbiased as possible. How would they do against a decent defense considering no one in that league seems to play it at all? I think there are some dynamic offenses in the Big 12 for sure but I don't know if there are many great teams.
Both Big 12 teams so far have won, both have covered the spread. My sense is that the maligned programs (Massey, Sagarin predictor) are probably doing better than most of the entries in the pickem--the only convincing argument would be to out-predict them.
I would not rule out a Northwestern or an Iowa upset over one of these Big12 teams. Their match ups are favorable in almost every bowl game except KSU and Arkansas yet I believe they will finish around 500 for the bowl season.
The Oklahoma game's my 35, A&M my 33. Let's revisit this in a couple of days.
Chickens, hatch. Counting. Something something.
Why, announcers? Why did you start talking about Tebow for no apparent reason?
Well he is the greatest college football player of all time
is the worst! All the TUO$ plugs makes me nautious!
Wife's incessant yapping keeps the Speilman babble in the background in my cave. Not sure which one I would rather have.
Agreed. He even managed to take the double option that Neb used on UofM. And attributed it to what Urban will bring to Ohio
Chris Spielman =
That was impressive.
Alright. I'm really enjoying this game. Seriously, RGIII is amazing and Baylor is pretty good, but the fact that they won 9 games with that D really goes to show you that the Big 12 just doesn't like to play defense.
Indeed. Baylor gave up an average of 37 points a game this season. That's Greg Robinson bad.
Good for Baylor for having their best season in decades but they're getting a little too much respect, IMO. Beating a crappy Texas team lets them pass us in the polls despite having 3 losses (one of which they gave up 55 points to a 6-6 Texas A&M team).
They're a typical Big 12 team. All offense and no defense. If you're that kind of team anywhere else in the country, you're shrugged off. But having those qualities in the Big 12 is impressive to the media and computers for some reason.
Is there any doubt anymore that Big12 defenses are a complete and utter joke? IF Baylor could get 9 wins with this atrocious seive that they call a defense (GERG anyone?), that's a mark that your conference only plays on one side of the ball.
Only thing RG's got that 'Lace doesn't is a twin in Andre 2000
Witnessing some highscoring history right here.
That Michigan's next coach was going to be the Almighty Sark, according to THE KNOWLEDGE.....
3 quick reactions:
1. Where's the D?
2. Heisman winner getting outscored by Washington?!!
3. Spielman, stop dying your hair. It doesn't work for Nic Cage, it doesn't work for you.

I want the Big 12 to lose all their games. I still don't understand why the computers love them so freaking much. Baffling that Texas can be unranked in both human polls, but then get ranked by the computers.
They didn't have any trouble covering the spread last night--could it be that the computers were closer to the truth than the humans?
Everybody here that's bitching about the computers should post a link to their pick'em entry. Let's see how you're doing.
This is the same Washington team that got blown out by a 9 loss Oregon State team last month.
That was their only loss to an unranked team though. They put up 38 on Nebraska; they've shown some offense this year, though the defense hasn't been good. Perfect opponent for Baylor--I'm sure the Alamo doesn't mind a MAC-style game.
If you're going to evaluate every team based on their worst game, pretty much everyone sucks. Which seems to be the tenor of a lot of the commentary in these parts lately.
Washington comes out swinging and connects on a TD pass for 50 yards or so.
Baylor can't handle all of the SEC SPEED.
Wow, that didn't take long, a minute into the 3rd and Washington hits paydirt.
.....a baylor sports junkie is feverishly preparing a radio rant involving HR Pufnstuf and the use of the word "PUCKER!!!"
Not a whole lot of defense in this game and you take a knee in the end zone? Shame!
Baylor is really good. We really did screw them out of a BCS game. sarcasm
For Kansas State about now?
TCU didn't exactly wrap themselves in glory either.
Lol this whole idea of "defense" is a sick joke.
"Let me tackle myself!" *dive*
trying to figure out the controls on Tecmo Super Bowl. "Is this the tackle button? Ffffu it is [Mike form-tackles air 5 yards away from the developing play, which goes through the gap and gains 15]." That said, I can Bo Jackson helpless teams to death with the best of them ha
Interesting stat: 6 of the last 10 Heisman trophy winners went on to lose their bowl games...
2000: Chris Weinke - Lost to Oklahoma 13-2
2001: Eric Crouch – Lost to Miami 37-14
2002: Carson Palmer – Beat Iowa 38-17
2003: Jason White – Lost to LSU 21-14
2004: Matt Leinart – Beat Oklahoma 55-19
2006: Troy Smith – Lost to Florida 41-14
2007: Tim Tebow – Lost to Michigan 41-35
2008: Sam Bradford – Lost to Florida 24-14
2009: Mark Ingram – Beat Texas 37-21
2010: Cam Newton – Beat Oregon 22-19
...doesn't bode well for Griffin. But this may be the highest scoring bowl game in history. Long way to go.
Option TD, how I love you, bobbles and all! <3
