Tennessee takes an early 7-0 lead, which of course means they'll only lose 35-7 now.
Evening Games Open Thread
You really know your Tennessee football.
I miss Lane Kiffin being in the SEC. He was an asshole in a sea of bland pricks for coaches.
I don't know, I'm pretty excited to the direction the Harbaugh-Kiffin relationship will inevitably take. It's a-gonna be fun!
Alabama could biff another one along the way...Oregon could blow one in the PAC Ten...Iowa's not looking so tough...
How much danger are we in of MSU making the National Championship Game? There's a lot of weeks for people in front of them to lose...and not many more teams that could beat them.
There's a good chance Wisconsin will jump ahead of MSU if MSU loses next week and Wisoncin runs the table, which looks very possible as long as they can get by us.
If MSU loses they are done.
only presently undefeated Missouri gets less respect.
Undefeated Boise & TCU teams get in ahead of a one-loss MSU for sure.
And the one-loss line will be too long for MSU.
Next week is huge for them.
Consdering they barely beat a mediocre NW team this week and still have to go to Iowa, you never know. But yeah, they could very well go undefeated, which is terrifying but, I guess, good for them. Plus, that would prove yet again just how illogical the BCS is.
MSU's game at Iowa next week is massive for them. Biggest game for them that I can remember. I feel sorry for everyone living in the state, its gotta be annoying.
I wonder if the three unbeatens at the end of the year were MSU, BSU, and TCU, if they would put BSU v. TCU in the championship. On the one hand, it'd be funny, on the other, it'd be pretty embarrassing for the Big Ten to have their champion snubbed for MWC and WAC teams.
It would be even more embarrassing for MSU to get pasted by one of those teams. I think Boise State would carve them up, and TCU's defense is pretty tough.
Oklahoma, Oregon, Boise State, Auburn, and TCU are still ahead of MSU.
Considering their strength of schedule is relatively weak (no OSU, ND keeps losing), and the fact that they were not highly regarded at the beginning of the season, and their narrow escape against Northwestern, even if MSU beats Iowa next week, they will need lots of help.
I have a hard enough time seeing both Boise State and TCU losing with their schedules (Utah could replace TCU if the Utes win 11-6), let alone all five losing AND MSU winning out.
I don't see Auburn running the table in the SEC, and even if Oklahoma wins tonight, I'm thinking they lose to Nebraska. So if Oregon slips up, can I see the polls not having 2 non-BCS conference schools playing? Seeing how Oklahoma leapfrogged them all, sure. (Though after playing in the little kid's table BCS bowl, watching them get yet another bowl rematch, bur for all the marbles, would be amusing).

Nice to see a few thousand people showed up to see Miami play. Isn't this supposed to be a top tier program? I suppose this is what happens when you move to an off campus sterile pro stadium.....Or when your fan base is 80% bandwagoners leftover from the 90s
2 Live Crew would beg to differ.
^^^Please Take Notice^^^
Jeeze... 7 true freshmen on the field against Georgia for Tennessee, so someone out there is worse off..
Georgia or Alabama?
They mentioned during the Alabama broadcast that Tennessee had 7 true freshman on the field at one point against Georgia.
Mizzou returns the opening kickoff for a td. Just like last week's night game.
With a chance to really get momentum after forcing a 3 and out, Mizzou fumbles. Tough luck there.
Baylor has 683 yards of offense against #22 K-State ( no idea how they are ranked), but regardless that is one hell of a productive day.
Edit: disregard the reply, meant to be just a normal post.
Man it would've been fun to watch him in this offense.
I hope to hear Musburger talk about which hash the place kicker is kicking from. That dude is sooo old.
"Left Hash"....non stop during the Boise games.
Bring back Keith Jackson!! (Woodson Days)
Is anyone here actually rooting for Mizzou? They came outta nowhere!
im rooting for mizzou. I'll root for a block M over a maroon/scarlet O any day.
I'll root for the future Big Ten team to kill it in their last year in the Big 12.
Wait...what? You mean Mizzou never got offered to join the Big Ten? Really? Huh, I could've sworn they were in...
I am, based solely on the fact that their band was playing the Super Mario theme song.
Double post DSL timing out FTW!
..Solely because I'm 12th overall in the Allstate Mayhem Challenge and I picked the #1 team in the polls to lose this week (just like I did last week and it worked...).
Oh man, if that's true, Michigan is in a heap of trouble...
Did anyone watch the Penn St game today? How did they look?
But from what people were saying in the earlier thread, they looked God awful.
We seem to have a tendency to make bad teams look/play well.
Wings just beat the ducks 5-4. Datsyuk scored with 11 seconds left.
Hockey fines/penalizes players for leaving the bench to join a fight. Why don't they do that in baseball? Utley is hit in the back and gets flack from the pitcher and suddenly everyone from the dugouts and bull pens are storming the field. Ridiculous.
Because baseball players are pussies and even when there are 74 of them on the field at one time the odds of an actual fight breaking out are slim.
did you need all that weed and vodka?
Unbelievable Miami empty stadium
Tennessee looked like Tennessee for a half
Is Ingram is officially 2nd string, after getting destroyed on that blitz and the Richardson run/catch
Jonathan Nelson of Oklahoma just made the greatest strip of the ball I have ever seen. It went backwards like 15 yards and they recovered it.
Wow, big field goal miss for the Sooners there. Still 17-14 Mizzou.
It was the strippedest strip that ever was stripped. I've seen slant passes with less zip.
Meanwhile, did ABC come up with some insane way to overcome their earlier audio difficulties? I stepped away for a few minutes and it sounds like Brent and Herbie are calling this thing via CB now.
[Edit to provide a little info to kind of answer the posts below - the audio was cutting out entirely for 5-20 seconds at a time, with maybe 7:00 to go in the 3rd. Seems like they have switched to a more dependable but lower-fidelity method of audio transmission, up there.]
Just turned on the OU-Mizzou game, now is my hearing just terrible all the sudden or does Musberger sound like he's doing radio commentary?
Has anyone else experienced a sound failure in the OU Mizzou game? It sounds like Herbie and Hamburger are doing the play by play inside a phone booth.
Sounds like the finally got it figured out, but that was ridiculous.
Yeah, we're not getting any of the field noise. It's just the color commentary. I feel like I'm watching a HS game on TV
Seems to have cleared up.
Does TWIS count when a fan posts on a different fanbase's message board? Because some ND fan put forth a solid effort on EDSBS this afternoon.
Here it is....so good...
"I hate you, Brian Kelly. I hate your fucking lesbian golfer visor. I hate your fucking offense that looks like Oregon’s offense on quaaludes and holds the ball for 2.5 minutes a game. I hate your fucking Dance of the Backup Quarterbacks playcalling system. I hate your fucking Baaaaaahston accent as you blame the players and get high on the smell of your own fucking farts.
I hate you, Notre Dame football players. You’re made of glass, you’re fucking idiots, and you look like flabby turnstiles in those absurd shrink-wrap jerseys. You sit on the bench and cry because your opponents are actually, you know, hitting and trying to win a football game. You fold at the first sign of adversity, you drop balls a third grader would catch, and you spend most of the game chugging gatorade and feeling sorry for yourselves. I’m sure that, somehow, you’ll muster up enough strength to go out and drink 19 Keystone Lights in South Bend tonight, because you fucking deserve it. You’re all fucking losers. Put your fucking helmets back on and at least look like you want to be playing football.
I hate you, Notre Dame fans. You people fucking suck. I hate your pink jerseys, your 2.5 children named Hunter and Dakota and Mackenzie. I hate your fucking Bluetooths and your Blackberries that you dick around with instead of, you know, paying attention to the fucking football game. You want your hot chocolate hot, your seat cushion squishy, and your football stadium absolutely silent so the noise doesn’t hurt little Aiden’s ears. You’re the lamest fucking fanbase in the country, and I’m ashamed to be one of you.
I hate you, Notre Dame football. You’re fucked beyond repair, and the next time you do something impressive will be the first in my lifetime. You’re a bloated, creaking, corpse of a football program that slowly lurches along year after year, taking one step forward and two steps back. Fuck your classiness and your tradition and your “Welcome to Notre Dame Stadium!” and your violent yellow flowers and your assbag announcers who can’t identify the players or pronounce their names and your commercial breaks that last a galactic year and your retarded fucking schedules. All you do is provide schadenfreude for our enemies, and it fucking blows.
Fuck you all, I’m getting drunk."
Hurt Aiden's little ears...hahahaha
Why was Oklahoma #1 again?!!! JUNK
Potentially will happen tonight. Oregon would most likely be the next #1 and they play at USC in an 8:00 pm game. I'd say the television guys did a pretty damn good job so far this year with game scheduling times.
That. Was. AWESOME!!!
Bunch of Sooners running down the field watching the Missouri guys catch up the kick returner. How about picking up a block instead of spectating?
That may cost them the game.
Did Oklahoma seriously just punt down 9 with 2:30+ left? What the hell is Stoops doing?
Couldn't figure that out either. They had little chance left but he handed them what OU had left.
I hate college football coaches for getting paid so much while being terrible at their jobs.
And #1 goes down for the thrid week in a row. Way to go Mizzou! Now Oregon needs to beat USC next week to put a stop to this crap.
Is Brent Musburger drunk, demented or getting a BJ right now?
Assume he's always drunk.
Big 12 should take a hit in the polls. Or at least it ought to after this weekend.
Have to love the Cyclones victory though.
