Big, big, big statement win from TCU. Beating Utah would've given them a leg up in the BCS over Boise State and in the overall poll, but just utterly destroying Utah (on the road, no less) makes them a genuine threat. I would love to see a TCU/Oregon or TCU/Auburn (or, dare I say it, TCU/Boise State) matchup in the national title game.
By this point, I think Les Miles sold his soul to the devil to get all of these crazy victories going his way.
Imagine how good LSU would be if the QB position wasn't a weakness. Have to give Les credit though, he doesn't play conservative in big spots. TCU clinched at worst a spot in the Rose Bowl should they win out. Oregon's offense stalls for the first 20-25 minutes and still hangs over half a hundred. Remember when Michigan used to play defense?
Rivals Sports Radio exploded after 7:00 pm last night. Even if Auburn loses to Bama which I think is getting less likely, they still take the SEC West. Hopefully, Joe Pa's 400th win will get them him out of there. If Oregon or Auburn slips, TCU gets the spot, no matter what. John Saunders can kiss my ass and I doubt if either Boiste St or TCU will kill ESPN. At least Notre Dame didn't embarrass themselves anymore by taking responsibility for that accident last week. Now the question is who goes the AD or the head coach with his head up his ass? Rich Rod dodges a bullet, but they have to improve the defense or the Ohio State game will be his last.
TCU did look good but, and I know others disagree, it was Utah. Pretty record, not much substance. If Auburn had pasted Utah, we'd have said, "yep, figures" and left it at that. But TCU gets extra credit cause it's better than the rest of the crap teams they play.
I guess what I'm saying is I hope Auburn and Oregon win out. I don't mind seeing TCU in a BCS bowl, just not the title one if possible.
So...uh at least the ACC has bowl eligible teams. So we've got that on the Big East!
Rivals was fun today too. King wasn't having any of the LSU fans trying to say they always had Miles back. Now TCU vs LSU, THAT is a game I would love to see.
