I'm bracing myself for a loss, but who knows, maybe on that stage Rambo and Ogletree might remember what they knew last year. And with Jarvis Jones coming back, maybe two weeks off will have given him rest and he'll be the same dominant guy that made Missouri's offense look silly (once he got going).
We have that matchup every year with Ohio State and Michigan. lol.

I don't think I've ever seen something like this before:

UNC player delivers what looks like dirty cheap shot on Duke

Not talking heated rivalry, well a bit, but the winner of this game will win the SEC east. So it's not just a violent heated rivalry, it's a game where both teams' entire seasons are at stake.

Cheap shot for sure. Looks like he's going to get a game suspension out of it, but cheap shots like this really taint games where the rivalry itself should be enough to get attention.

I'm a KU fan through and through, but I'll give props to K-State and Collin Klein. They just keep moving forward no matter where the games are played, and who is on the schedule. Klein seems to be a remarkable athlete, as well as a man of character.

Hope I don't lose my fan card for KU, but I DO respect what Coach Bill Snyder has done down the road in Manhattan.

Do you realize how many times Ohio State and Michigan have played spoilers to each other? Ohio State can't win anything this year, except a division championship, but they can ruin Michigan's shot at the Big Ten title game and a spot in a BCS bowl as the automatic bid qualifier. So I'd say Michigan's season is definitely at stake when they go up against Ohio State. That's how high the stakes are every year for that game, just so you know.

It looks like the Ducks play their last game against the Beavers. The Ducks better not fall asleep. It doesn't matter how good or bad either team is playing they always seem to get up for this one. Right now they're both in the top 10. And Oregon should be higher than 4!!!!!

Yeah, but Florida is in national title contention, and the winner goes on to face Alabama, and the winner of that game will likely be in the championship, even if it is a 1 loss UGA.

And Ohio State and Michigan have beaten each other many times when each was in the spot to end up as national champions. I just don't think you have anything over an Ohio State/Michigan fan, because they endure that type of game A LOT.

I honestly wasn't all that surprised. I thought Florida was overrated from the beginning and that Georgia's loss was a bad one and they were better.


All I have to say though, aside from that, is 9-0, when they were 3-3 last year, and by they I mean Ohio State. Next year will be awesome.

Actually was playing board games. But I'm not celebrating just yet. There's still Alabama and 5 undefeated teams including Notre Dame (who I hate so very very much).

AP Poll, I do not understand you. Why is an ineligible team ranked? Just makes no sense.

There's probably something about factoring in an ineligible team for SOS purposes in the BCS poll.

Because the AP poll has no bearing on the BCS. That is the coaches poll that is done by USA Today and the computers crunching numbers. The AP poll is more of a vanity poll and for bragging rights.
