Oklahoma @ WVU on Fox, Stanford @ Oregon on ABC at 8, and Kansas St. @ Baylor on ESPN at 8.
It would be best for Michigan if WVU wins, if Oregon wins, and if Kansas St. wins.
Ahhhh...sweet, sweet tears.
none for me. I am nursing a massive hangover now...
That explains a lot, actually.
May I suggest applesauce? For real, it works wonders for hangovers.
That'll be swell.
Oregon vs Stanford + Tom Collins (now) and South U (later).
Hopefully I'll either witness a great game or be too drunk to care!

A cup of eight o'clock coffee, I had enough beer tailgating this morning. Waiting for this Stanford Oregon game to start. Also, I love Denard...Devin I loooove you too!
to my wife's works' Christmas party. I hear you on the coffee, but hopefully the beer will be flowing like champagne there because I'm going to have to go deal with all the Buckeyes and their "undefeated" jabber. Hopefully we shut them up next Saturday!
Were you sitting in front of me? Section 6 row 40?
Bud Light and Frescetta pizza.
I am currently breaking into a supply of Old Speckled Hen and watching Tennessee do nothing in particular against Vanderbilt until I can switch to Stanford and Oregon, which is the headline game this evening, I would think.
Also, Oklahoma goes to WVA for the first time for a night game and empty seats??
I wouldn't bet any money on WVU beating OU, granted OU is a choke artist.....WVU couldn't stop a FCS offense at this point. WVU will have to put up over 45 to have a shot at winning.
Heading out to celebrate two friends birthdays in just a bit. Should be a complete shitshow, but after 42-10 that's quite all right with me.
(Inside read-option hand off, tackled at the 16-17) on 4th & 3.
Utah St wins 48-41.
With USC also going down, we should be up to #19.
If Oregon can win out, that means losses for Stanford, UCLA and Oregon State (all of which are ahead of us). Also if K State can beat Texas, that would be 4 additional spots we could move up over the next few weeks. If Rutgers can beat Louisville, or Oklahoma loses (WVU tonight and Okie State) still a chance to get into BCS top 14. La Tech loss helped. Of course we need to BEAT OHIO.
See even more teams ahead of us fall.
We won't pass loser of SEC championship game. I'm already counting on UCLA losing. Looks like either FSU or Clemson will only have one loss going to ACC CG, so even if they lose we won't pass them. Big 12 and Big East don't have CGs. I don't know what happens in Nebraska goes to the B1G CG and loses, we'd pass them but Wisky goes to Rose Bowl.
Lets go WVU beat the Sooners.
Anyone else think that #69 for MiZzou is a woman?
I'm now sitting at 221 (116.78) on the Fantasy Roll, with a random Stanford WR, Kenjon Barner and Matt Scott left to play. How's the rest of the board doing?
Anyone else tossing back a few Red Dogs!
Founder's Breakfast Stout. Rooting for the Ducks and Mountaineers. Also praying for a successful surgery and recovery for our man Fitz.
There is no beverage strong enough to make kirk herbstreit's wardrobe choice acceptable
He's still on my good list for his reaction to Corso's child-mocking duck-strangling performance this morning. He can wear whatever he wants today.
Clown PI call, bro, on Vandy.
Drinking Dogfish Head and trying to figure out whether to finish my Stanford grad school application or watch the Stanford-Oregon game. Does anyone think if I cheered for the Cardinal, they would let me have a typo on the application?
Founders Backwoods Bastard, Lagunitas Brown Shugga, and New Hollands Mad Hatter. Top it all off with some apple pie (cider, apple juice, sugar, cinnamon, and everclear) and I'm in for a good evening
If WVU can pull off this upset and Oregon plays half as good as it has been all season...We will be sitting at 17 in the BCS at the lowest. Just sayin'...
Chipotle and West Coast IPA.
Sweet Jesus I hate Oregon's uniformz. Do they even have team colors any more?
Sure they do. All of them...
Just cracked open a Bells Java Stout. Watching Stanford hang with Oregon.
Baylor is gashing KSU's D so far... I think there's a solid chance #1 or #2 goes down tonight (aka ND gets into the MNC game)....
So glad that Stanford punted there. Way to set them up on a long field.
Why did Thomas not block for his QB?
Some people just want to see the world burn.
You serious Clark?
Please KSU, do not lose. I do not want to hear "returned to glory" uttered at the end of the season
If they lose, Gameday has a decision to make. I would imagine they want to be at KSU Texas next week. As a contingency - do you go to LA despite the apathy with the program or to the Civil war for back to back Oregon games? I say they still end up in LA.
Kansas St doesn't play next week.
Touche. Why couldn't the B1G catch on to this "moving games back when you don't have a conference championship" business?
LA seems like a good bet. Notre Dame is always a ratings machine.
Probably will be there regardless. Too large of fanbases to pass up
Geno Smith 4 Heisman!!! Lol Also, Cutty Sark, Vernors, and spicy ginger syrup.
Anyone mixing in some UFC as well?
oh crap, thanks for reminding me! stream on the computer, and I'll be watching Oregon-Stanford.
Everyone disheartened at halftime...
That was some killer accuracy by Mariota.
Coors Light and Jameson. Is there really anything else?
Sir Jameson is tap dancing on my noggin right now...drank way too much of that brew...
of course Oregon/KSU look like crap tonight, why not, It's been that kind of season this year.
missa thinkin k stata is goin to has to stop lache seastrunk from runn over them roughshod if isa goin to has a hope of stay undefeat
nice plug there for the ESPN Watch App available for download on both itunes and the google play store Musburger and Herbie. Talk about no shame for being tools of the WWL. Typical buckeyes
the Asics commercial during an Oregon prime time game. Take that Knight.
If both KSU and Oregon manage to lose, ND would have be tough to keep out of the MNC game. STOP LOSING you two
all setting up for ND.....sigh
I'm not sure about Notre Dame. I like those NFL caliber USC receivers against that secondary out in LA.
This is what happens when you run with pace but don't get first downs: you don't get points and put your defense right back out there.
TOP is 6:43 Oregon to 15:07 Stanford. Stanford has also run more plays. Wouldn't be surprised to see the Ducks defense wear down as the half ends.
They get a stop and come right back to score.
Jesus if both Oregon and Kansas State lose we are staring straight down the barrel of another SEC v SEC championship game possibility with only Notrefucking Dame standing in the breach.
So assuming Oregon, KSU, and ND all lose one. I think it's most likely the SEC champ would face a one-loss Oregon as Oregon still gets to play top 25 Oregon State and play top 25 UCLA in the title game. If ND loses to USC, they're done. No title games, no more games, just watch.
Thus you'd probably get Oregon v Bama/Georgia. If Oregon loses again, heck if I know
So when David Shaw has a 4th and short around the 30 yard line he elects to punt it. But now, with a 4th and short around midfield he decides to go for it!?!?
What is this...I don't even....
Tennessee currently down 20-10 to Vandy. This might be the last straw for Dooley.
Baylor up 28-7 on Kansas State....fuck
K State down 28-7 just before half. Not looking good for them.
Pure Hoppiness. During UCLA game had s Lagunita Little Sumpin... Delish.
Now gonna watch second half of M game (missed due to kids soccer game)
I feel like KState is the least...legitimate and/or threatening #1 since Missouri was briefly #1 back in 2007. I can't take the 1 by their name seriously
789 total yards already in the West Virginia/Oklahoma game, and they're just three minutes into the second half.
Vanderbilt up on Tennessee. It seems like Dooley will have a hard time make it out of town alive.
too early to start feeling nervous about The Game? No?
Tavon Austin for WVU....total Beastmode tonight. Wow
Seems like Oregon always lays one egg every season.
Eh, I think they'll pull it off.
huuuuuuge pick for kstate
Well that's cool.
WVU just broke out the 5-wide, 1 RB formation. No flag.
"if you ain't cheatin, you ain't tryin"
somewhere the 5th down is proud of this....
I don't know if I've ever see a QB throw a pick like that. From inside his goalline, on an WR screen at the 1
haven't heard his name tonight - is he playing for the Ducks at all or riding the pine?
starting RT #75 I believe....
hey look RR gets his rematch against Utah...wonder if he can pull this one out.
WVU whiffs on the 2-point try down 38-36 11:22 4Q
Oregon's K misses a 42-yarder. Wide right, up 14-7.
Sipping some red stag and watching football.
WVU is going ham on OU. They've got all the momentum on their side.
A triple reverse for a big loss. Play doesn't seem to work at all.
Bill Synder watched our game today, tried a double reverse.
Too bad for him he doesn't have Denard, now he has 2nd and 21
K State chocking as a top ranked team? I've NEVER seen this before.
Dammit Kansas State is shitting the bed bigtime
ND vs Oregon/Bama would be intriguing.
The man has won everywhere he has been at. I can't say the hype is undeserved.
Damn K-State. Well time to break out some Wild Turkey.
Hey dude, I heard you sat behind Brian at the Northwestern game. Pretty good seats, huh?
they want you back
You're the one who's made quite a few idiotic statements on the board the last few days. Maybe take a Thanksgiving break?
Who the fuck cares? You could probably use a day or two off.
It feels like Stanford would like nothing more than to lose this game.
Kansas State might be the worst #1 ever
No i think it shows how little defense the conference has.
Book ND in the NTG because SC isn't winning without Barkley.
So one of our largest recruiting rivals vs. uniformz for the NC. Thoughts? /waytooearly
Great catch, but probably not a TD
i think it was cool that the upstairs ref had the balls to overrule the call on the field.
it looked like a td.
I guess that's where the whole "process of the catch" and "football move" comes in. I can see how it could be argued both ways, and I'm glad it's not Michigan that's involved
WVU had 778 yards of offense tonight and still lost. You know you might have a bad defense if...
LOL in the SEC. Syracuse beat Mizzou.
That TD might actually be more beneficial to Oregon. They get last possesion and only need a FG to win
That is not a DPI. Horseshit call
How's that a penalty?
Molly Molly Molly untz untz untz untz untz untz untz untz
Glad to see Oregon didn't score off of that call
If Oregon blows this I'm gonna flip. I can't stomach a Notre Dame-Alabama championship game. It's a lose-lose.
If those two meet in the title game, I will lose my mind.
I would not want to take Oregon to OT.
EDIT: Unless it was tonight.
All ND has to do is follow the Stanford blueprint and the NC is theirs.
Wow. What is Chip Kelly doing.
Wow Wow Wow. Stanford just needs a FG.
That's why Oregon couldn't run the read option on Auburn--Nick Fairley was making plays like that. Didn't know Murphy had that in him. Impressive.
Oregon misses the FG, had it bounce off the upright.
Hello ND/Bama MNC
O hai Alabama. Welcome back to the National Championship.
Alabama to NC. Jesus christ. Brent Musberger could hardly contain himself.
Rug roh the ducks are up against it right now.
Good Lord Oregon! I don't understand the play calling there.
Looks like Bama losing a critical game in November makes no difference yet again.
Cue College Football Live discussions about how Chip Kelly's willingness to go for it on 4th down against crap teams hurts them in clutch situations.
Usually things don't go my way. So a Bama vs ND championship game will happen. FML. Make it better sailor Jerry's make the pain go away.
I know it was a long shot anyways, but wouldn't this basically kill our at-large BCS hopes if we win at OSU next weekend?
Stanford kicker is 12 for 28. Also fumble
KSU and Oregon were both frauds. Oregon plays no defense and KSU is.. well, KSU.
Oregon is missing something like 8 players on D. They've played Stanford tough here.
About the only time they have performed well versus decent competition was Auburn in the NT game. Oregon won't win a national title until they learn to play good defense.
Was tonight's loss really on the defense? The offense managed to drop the ball time and time again. 14 points in regulation being too much to give up to Stanford is a tough standard.
Recovery of the year...
My god the tension in this game! This is why college football is the greatest sport ever.
WOW. Oregon goes down.
Fuck my life.
So I don't really want to go to the Rose Bowl anymore
If Stanford beats UCLA next week they represent the North not Oregon, so it would be UCLA or Stanford in the rose.
Well both of those are more winnable for UM than Oregon, but I dunno, this feels like one of those years where everything crazy happens, like Stanford dropping an easy win
Notre Dame is the last unbeaten and almost assuredly #1 now
I would still rather see Bama win then ND.
The only two teams to beat Michigan with a quarterback-who-is-real will play for the National Championship. Just a side note.
God I fucking hate the bcs and espn
"It would be best for UM if WVU, KState, and Oregon all win."
Are we sure Alabama/Georgia is a formality? I know they had some ugly-looking games along the way but they also gave Florida their only loss.
They'll probably be a 10-14 point underdog but stranger things have happened. In the last half hour or so, in fact.
It's not. Georgia can put up a pretty big fight. If Murray can pull it together for that game Bama will have a huge hill to climb to win that one.
Even if georgia wins that they'll go to the championship instead of bama
Oh I agree, the SEC Championship game is a NC play in game now.
Unless Georgia loses to Georgia Tech. I know they'll be favored by three touchdowns but it's a rivalry game and after today I'm not assuming anything.
Well, except for Auburn/Alabama. That one isn't happening.
Agreed, but this comment just made me imagine a world where both KSU and Oregon lose again. What happens if UGA loses to GTech and beats Bama in that scenario?
Notre Dame/Florida would be my guess. Even if K-State doesn't lose again I think they're stuck behind Florida.
So many tears in the stands. Haha.
ND is now the only team keeping it from being an SEC-SEC lovefest National Championship.
In other news, this antifreeze over here looks like it should quench my thirst.
I have hope that Oregon can be the 3rd team in waiting still. They lost in OT to #13 and they still get to play #16 Oregon State and possibly (hopefully) #17 UCLA in the Pac-12 title game. They can get back in the picture with two wins there, but now I'm not sure they'll make the title game...guh
I agree - I think that Oregon will work their way back in if ND falls next week. Assuming they win out, of course.
I hate ESS EE SEE just as much as the next guy, but at least they're actually good. This ND team needed 6 turnovers to beat us by 4, and a missed 33 yard field goal in overtime from a 4-6 Pitt team.
Tomorrow evening two out of our three losses this season will be to the top two BCS teams.
Ranked around 20 still.
19 probably. Louisiana Tech (20) and USC (18) lost. I don't think anyone will jump us.
If we had just beaten ND like we were supposed to back in September or if PItt could kick a 30 yd field goal or if the refs would've just given Stanford that TD, this would not be happening
Stanford didn't get that touchdown. The refs just needed to correctly officiate the incomplete fourth down pass that they gave Pitt PI for and ND would be out of it.
If Devin Gardner plays QB against ND and Nebraska I think we would be looking at a top 4 or 5 ranking. That could be the Sailor Jerry's talking though.
We would probably be behind the gaggle of SEC teams they put up there alongside Florida State. But with a game against OSU coming up we would have an easy chance to vault up.
There is no god
Seriously we are going to have to hear ND fans talking more shit. I envy those that don't work with any ND fans.
Man I want to Rose Bowl.
and a #5-10 SEC team in the Capitol One bowl.
Not too shabby, if you ask me.
I'm re-directing my anger to ohio now. FUCK OHIO. HATE WEEK STARTS IN 8 MINUTES.
Fucking refs in the Pitt/ND, Neb/MSU game man.
And you just know Lou Holtz and Mike Golic are making a love child right now...eeeww.
a wonderful Oregon Pinot Noir at a late dinner here in Portland, OR at Tasty & Sons. Of course, the hipsters there were not concerned with petty college football, but the wine seemed to taste especially good. It must have been the meat and wine plate.
Listening to Chip Kelly on the radio postgame was the best dessert. All the Duck fans out here were so preoccupied with who they were going to play in the title game, they forgot to beat Stanford.
Where does Stanford get so many athletic effective defensive linemen who are < 290 lbs. Seriously?
