Is there a rule in the SEC that proper clock management is not allowed? How does it take almost 20 seconds for LSU to use a time-out at the end? Did Les have the 4 and wanted to keep it safe in case Ole Miss got the ball back and became insanely creative?
I guess Wisconsin is out of the other Big Ten team taking a BCS bid discussion.

I hope he doesn't even go on the plane to the slaughter at Stanford. And, if it causes Claussen to leave, well, they lose a guy who puts up big numbers and a losing to mediocre record.

I'd post longer because I am recovering from sticking a fork in a socket, but here's my basic thoughts on today -

FUCK FUCK FUCK FLORIDA STATE FUCK DAMMIT FUCK MOTHER FUCKER

That was a hell of a game, but FUCK. I wanted Maryland to ruin their season like they've ruined ours a few times lately.

I thought EJ gave it away with that last interception. Two backup qbs that had to run to be effective. Difference was EJ had Greg Reid on his side. Heck of a true freshman we got there.

I really don't want to hear about UConn's QB being a better QB then Clausen, he is lucky they have a great running game and ND's defense sucks. He was pretty terrible. Charlie is gone, as is Clausen and Tate as well 27 seniors. Norte Dame has got to go out and get the recruits Lou got ie ones with not great academics and high talent. Its time for ND to go dark side.

LSU's lose makes up for all the bad calls they got early on and won. Penn State will get the BCS bid and they will be the subject of scrutiny for once instead of getting the hand jobs for Joe Pa being there forever. The rest of the week was nothing but cupcake games, a very weak day, yes I am including Ohio State/Michigan.

I thought it would be a high scoring game so the first half surprised me. Maryland getting that long INT and then TD on 4th and Goal right before half really kept us in the game, and it's unfortunate we couldn't have punted the ball out of bounds like we were supposed to at the end there. I knew something would go wrong and EVERYTHING did, even that last drive for us was a disaster.

(Yeah, I'm more calm now.)

- Looks like BCS at larges are down to Boise, Oklahoma State, and Iowa. Not sure how Penn State will be in this now that Iowa is ranked ahead of PSU, didn't lose to Minnesota, and Wisconsin lost. It's down to Iowa and PSU, and Iowa beat PSU. No crazy tiebreaker scenario, just Iowa beat PSU and Iowa travels well apparently.

- Northwestern beat Wisconsin. 8 win season for the Wildcats, pretty impressive all things considered.

- The fact people want Weis and Rich Rod fired so badly is almost as sad as the fact people want Fridge fired so badly.

- Oregon beats Arizona in 2 OTs somehow and Stanford loses to Cal somehow (both were great games though), and now the Rose Bowl comes down to Ducks vs Beavers. Awesome. The Civil War is an underrated rivalry and either way I'll be happy to see the Pac 10 shut Ohio State down.

- I can't believe Florida played FIU today. That is embarrassing and SEC defenders can't even explain that one.

- The fact UConn's QB is known as UConn's QB means he's not better than Clausen, but UConn is better than Notre Dame. They have a similar record and just won in South Bend. But hey, take solace Irish fans, your QB is better than UConn's QB.

- Tech 43 Oklahoma 14. Thanks for not doing that last year, assholes. OU is 6-5 with wins over a pupu platter of cupcakes. That's hilarious.

- Texas vs Nebraska in the B12 title game, so I guess Texas will win and be in the national title game. Although Nebraska's defense is nasty, I can see it being 24-10 or something.

- Georgia Tech will finish the regular season 12-1 it seems. I don't see them losing to Georgia or Clemson. 12-1 for GT with a loss to Miami, I bet they wish they had that game back now.

That game might have had the dumbest play call that didn't cost a team the game that I've seen in a long time. 3rd and 8 from inside the 20 with 2:40 to go and Stanford had a time-out, so Cal decides to have the QB just slide the ball over to the other hash mark to set up a field goal to make it go from 31-28 to 34-28. Now, with 24 seconds left this might have made sense. To get it from 6 to 9 this would have made sense. But, in those circumstances you are inviting a loss. Cal gets the break that Stanford goes right through them until they get picked off at the 3 with around a minute and a half left, but still, that was poor decision making at the very least.

Why should the SEC defend scheduling FIU?

Teams the ACC had on its schedule this year:

James Madison
Jacksonville State
Elon
Kent State
Coastal Carolina
Richmond
North Carolina Central
Citadel
Murray State
Gardner-Webb
William&Mary

I agree it was a useless game, but it is hardly just an SEC problem.

Fantastic to see UConn finally get a big win (even after the refs tried to put it in the bag for the Irish). Even better to see it happen against Charlie & Co. on Senior Day.

Certainly wish that stinkbomb against OSU would seal the deal on Rich Rod, but he'll get another year. Although....

1) None of those teams were Florida.
2) None of those games happened one week before the regular season finale.
3) Florida's already played a FCS team in week 1. Name how many ACC teams played 2 FCS teams.. just Dook I believe. (and Dook is Dook, Richmond shut them out last year, and the NC Central game was for political reasons and actually ended up hurting them.)

My fault there, but still. I got Alabama and Florida's games confused for some reason. Anyways, I think it's dumb for Florida to be scheduling all these lame duck programs. They ducked USF to play FIU. It's good they are staying in state but they're the Gators, they should be above playing FIU in their 11th game. I'd be fine with week 2, but week 11? Come on. Alabama also. Chattanooga? Come on.

    (edited by Psycho Penguin on 23.11.09 1239)


NOTE: All this is accurate up to week 11.

NC State played Murray State and Gardner-Webb in consecutive weeks.

As you mentioned, Duke lost to Richmond and beat NC Central.

North Carolina beat Citadel and Georgia Southern.

Going on to the SEC, they played:

Charleston Southern
Tennessee Tech
Eastern Kentucky
SC State
Western Carolina
Missouri State
Furman
Jackson State
And Mississippi played both Southeastern Louisiana and Northern Arizona.

Three other schools that played two FCS teams:
Kansas State (Mass, Tennessee Tech)
Rutgers (Howard, Texas Southern)
South Florida (Woffard, Charleston Southern)

NC State played Murray State and Gardner-Webb in consecutive weeks. - In state schools I do believe

As you mentioned, Duke lost to Richmond and beat NC Central. - already explained

North Carolina beat Citadel and Georgia Southern. - in state school, pretty good FCS school

I'm not attacking the SEC, I'm attacking Florida. Florida schedules slightly better than UNC and Dook, congrats to them.

OK - I'm not trying to start the "playoffs vs. BCS" argument over AGAIN. We know how we all feel about it. But since Mike is posting his rankings that don't mean anything (and he knows I mean that in the nicest context), I thought I would post my Playoff Bracketology That Doesn't Mean Anything™.

Methodology: 20 teams. Eleven conference champions automatically qualify. Nine at-large teams. Teams ranked and seeded using six BCS ranking computers, but I take Sagarin's and Massey's ORIGINAL ranking formulae, NOT their BCS-adjusted ones. I try to place the bracket strictly by ranking but I will move a team up or down a spot to avoid two same-conference teams playing as long as possible.

CURRENT QUALIFIED TEAMS
Ohio State (10-2) - Big Ten champion
TCU (11-0) - Mountain West champion
Troy (8-3) - Sun Belt champion

PROJECTED AUTOMATIC QUALIFYING TEAMS (based on computer ranking)
Alabama (11-0) - SEC
Texas (11-0) - Big XII
Cincinnati (10-0) - Big East
Georgia Tech (10-1) - ACC
Boise State (11-0) - WAC
Oregon (10-2) - Pac-10
Houston (9-2) - Conference USA
Central Michigan (9-2) - MAC

PROJECTED AT-LARGE TEAMS
Florida (11-0)
Pittsburgh (9-1)
Virginia Tech (8-3)
Iowa (10-2)
LSU (8-3)
Penn State (10-2)
Oklahoma State (9-2)
Miami-FL (8-3)
USC (7-3)

FIRST ROUND
(20) Troy at (13) LSU
(19) Central Michigan at (14) Penn State
(18) Houston at (15) Miami
(17) USC at (16) Oklahoma State

SECOND ROUND
Oklahoma State/USC at (1) Alabama
Miami/Houston at (2) Florida
Penn State/Central Michigan at (3) Texas
LSU/Troy at (4) TCU
(12) Virginia Tech at (5) Cincinnati
(11) Iowa at (6) Georgia Tech
(10) Ohio State at (7) Boise State
(9) Pittsburgh at (8) Oregon

USC's computer ranking is 17.333. Oregon State's computer ranking is 17.833. Also, USC beat Oregon State, so it's really not indefensible. I suspect once Oregon and Oregon State play the computers will like the Beavers better either way.

The first five out in order were Oregon State, Cal, Clemson, North Carolina, and Utah.

I can't remember hearing anybody up here say they were actually IN the discussion.

That said, I predict Outback Bowl. Even when losing at Northwestern on Saturday, sports folks who were there told me (in the media room @ Lambeau) that the crowd was 60-40 Badger fans.

Bucky DRAWS on the road. The Outback Bowl folks have made mucho bucks in the past when 30,000 or so folks clad in UW red show up to their door...so I betcha they get that spot ahead of Northwestern, despite the Wildcats' slightly better record (8-4 overall vs. UW's 8-3), and even despite Bucky falling out of the top 25.
