Michigan State saves itself from an embarrassing lose. Rich Rod did not. LSU, Ohio State and Arkanass survive as well. Notre Dame is bowl eligible and after the Tulsa loss, I don;t think many people thought it was possible. At least they learned from the Navy loss. USC's season continues to spiral out of control. Boise State rolls as does VT and FSU. Nebraska's loss puts the Big 12 out any hope of them being in the title game. Everything is set-up for Black Friday for Men.
With the Nebraska buffer gone, the battle between Wisconsin and Ohio State for highest Big Ten BCS spot should a 3 team tie occur could get very interesting. Was convinced that if Ohio State had lost to Iowa, Michigan State losing to Penn State would have been the surest thing in the world. Still have some faith in Sparty screwing up though. Do we account for Oregon State destroying USC as Southern Cal quitting on the season or Oregon State demonstrating that perhaps they have a punchers shot in the Civil War against Oregon? The new Miami uniforms out-uglied any combination Oregon has put together. Even if Arkansas knocks off LSU, it still will be tricky for them to get in the BCS mix. Keeping a Boise/TCU out for a 1 loss Ohio State/LSU/Stanford could at least be argued, a 2 loss Arkansas would be stretching it. Stanford might actually be the second best team in the country. No one can say an LSU game is boring. Remember when the State University of New Jersey was supposed to become this great national power and Schiano was one of the greatest minds in college football? That was a quick era of greatness for them.

I agree that Brady doesn't get the props he deserves. I am as big a McNair fan as anyone, but Tom Brady does deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as Manning & McNair. After all, the Pats are the #1 seeded AFC team right now, if I'm not mistaken.
