Based on their results thusfar, which conference is the most powerful? Why?

And no, you Notre Dame supporters, you aren't your own conference. You got lucky against Michigan. Michigan State has owned you over the past five years. Although MSU has a habit of not showing up to at least one home game every year, the Notre Dame home game has never been one of those. You'll lose this weekend in East Lansing. You'll lose to Florida State. You'll lose at Air Force and USC as well. Four losses. You aren't back and you should not be taking up serious voters BCS considerations.

California 3-0? A powerhouse in the Pac-10?
Could Penn State and Ohio State be the team to beat in the Big 10?


I think the PAC 10 could be the most improved conference
SC, Cal, etc.

Before everyone jumps on the USC Bandwagon, look at the history of Pete Caroll coached teams. They get off to fast starts, then fade fast down the stretch.



Thank you Mr. Wanz for the check, now you get an AWA World Title Reign. But be careful, my boy Greg is a heat machine.

Could Penn State and Ohio State be the team to beat in the Big 10?

Could be, but it depends on two things:
1) Maurice* Clarret's having (already had?) knee surgery, but they're saying he may be ready to go against Cincinnati. I realize the kid had 200 yards on a bad wheel last week, but I think I'd rest him this weekend. You've got the Big 10 schedule looming - why risk injuring him so soon after surgery and losing him for the season?

2) How Penn State reacts now that the explosive offense is out of the bag. They freaking sandbagged against UCF and then, with Nebraska, it's like, "oh, look, we have an offense with weapons at every position, and a defense with speed and experience." Nebraska wasn't prepared for it, but every team for the next 10 weeks will be. But then again, I don't think we've seen every trick Joe-Pa and Gantner have up their sleeves...

I don't really have an opinion on which conference looks the strongest so far. I like to wait n see how they all fare against each other once conference play starts. I mean, that's when the Big Ten traditionally knocks 'emselves out of Big BCS contention by losing at least one conference game to a team they should easily handle.

*//edit: I apologize mskj - I have no idea why I put 'Anthony' there. Brain's on strike I guess.

For number of quality teams, I'd say it's the Pac 10 or Big 10 - for having the best teams at the top, it's probably the SEC and Big East.


Wait until 2005, though, when UConn reinforces the ranks.

It's Maurice Clarett. He looks to be alright, but I would sit him too. He was injured every year in high school, but he put up huge numbers anyway. He had over fourty touchdowns his senior year. FOURTY. All I know is if he puts up 200 yards against Michigan he instantly vaults to #1 on my all time favorite Buckeye list. Passing David Boston who is #1 now because he punched Charles Woodson. Hell, he should just run for 314 against them to avenge the season ruining 314 Tim Biakabituka put up against an undefeated OSU in the mid-late 90's. Ahh, I hate Michigan. Anyway.

As far as best conference Big Ten looks much better this year. Probably still a hair behind the Big 12 though, no matter what Penn State did to Nebraska.



Forget Rock. Maurice Clarett is my hero.

The ACC could've been considered if Maryland had beaten Notre Dame and UNC had looked ok against Texas. But we're back to the usual fare here as it's Florida State and everybody else.

I did only say they were the class of the ACC(for now). The Iowa State game would've scared the crap out of me if I were an FSU fan and if the second quarter touchdown run wasn't called back(I know, woulda coulda shoulda) Maryland would've made a game of it(since the wind was promptly and simultaneously sucked out of all 55,000 people in Byrd Stadium).
