I know, but its like, on one hand, once we beat a team, I want them to kick ass. OTOH, I love watching Staee implode more than any other team in the country. (yes, Ohio is close, but Sparty is sooooo damn annoying) Then on one foot, I want the other division to be a bunch of basket cases so we can dominate the B1G championship game, but OTOF, I don't think a loss is going to keep Wisconsin out.

My heart roots for anyone to beaty Sparty, but I suppose if they win it makes last week's victory more "legit." On the other hand, if Wiscy loses today the Woody division may be up for grabs and I like our chances better against Purdue in the BIG championship.

Zona will upset USC...Scott and Carey are some potent offensive players.  Can SC hang and score points to keep up? (Against a Rich Rod defense, yea I know it's Casteel, yea they probably can.. and my prediction will be wrong)

Holy mother of God.  Oregon is up 28-0 in the first quarter against Colorado.  Two questions:

1. I know Colorado is insanely bad but why?  What happened to them?

2. Can Oregon hang 100 on them?

That might get the BCS computers attention......

I don't see what's so hard  to understand about MSU's numbers on offense, despite have a guy who has had to sit in the shadow of Cousins for a couple years now starting, receivers with the dropsies, an RB that has a penchant for getting stuffed against good defenses, and an offensive line that is populated with zero-impact players for the most part. Oh, and Dan Roushar.

Sparty is remarkably lucky when it comes to recovering its own fumbles.  That's the third one in two quarters (4th against us and 1st against Wisc) they've had in their own territory and recovered.

Florida needs to b get beat today. After beating a weak-ish LSU team and a vastly overrated South Carolina team they don't even deserve a spot in the top 5.


October 27th, 2012 at 3:54 PM ^

Ehh...I know we all hate the bias towards the SEC, but they do have some very quality teams down there and Florida I think happens to be one of them.  Overrated?  Maybe, but maybe not as much as we'd like to think; I thought it was impossible for them to turn around this fast and didn't believe the hype, but they've earned it over 7/8 games.

Isn't that a good reason to keep making fun of it? For as much shit as they gave us for our "September heisman," they actually had an August heisman this year. Why wouldn't we want to make fun of them for hyping up their running back after shredding Boise's defense? Hell, Bell needed 253 yards against Eastern Michigan in order to average more than 4 yards per carry on the year. I think it is hilarious that they were thinking Bell would be a heisman candidate.

Zona could beat USC with their depth issues. Wiscy/Staee could be close. TCU should win. I'm actually picking Georgia but it could go either way. Purdue over Minny. KState over Tech.
Edit: North Carolina's uniforms today are pretty badass. I like them.
