Yikes! And the favorites just keep falling.

The most prominent one being USC, going down 24-23 to STANFORD of all teams to end any National Title hopes on their end.

Right behind them is #5 Wisconsin, who lost to Illinois by a 31-26 score.

And #12 Georgia got shellacked by Tennessee, 35-14.

I would say it's all LSU from here, but they're not faring too well against Florida.

That Les Miles is one ballsy coach. Jesus.

I love watching Nebraska get squashed.

And you people were bitching about South Florida not getting enough respect. Score looked a lot better than the game.

Booty will take much of the blame for USC losing, but as much as I hate bashing just the QB, he deserves it. Horrible game.

Notre Dame? How dare you!

Nice comeback Cincy. Too bad your conference continues to lose credibility each week.

Anyone saying the NFL is more exciting than college football needs to have their head examined. Wow.

ILLINOIS! ILLINOIS! ILLINOIS!

First time I ever watched an Illinois football game and they made it a doozy. It was probably necessary for a lot of Illinois sports fans; having both your college and pro football teams losing to Wisconsin teams in the same weekend the Cubs get swept out of the playoffs would STING.

So exactly how much crow are the Pac-10/USC fanboys who lambasted Les Miles for his 100% accurate remarks eating now?

Yeah it'd be much more impressive if they, you know, lost a game like everyone else is doing.

At the beginning of the season, I thought that UCLA had absolutely no business being on ANY Top 25 list. I've already been proven right once about them earlier this year and they just proved me right again by losing to Notre Dame. Sigh.

You can hang on the bandwagon all you want, but I'm not seeing enough from them to have them ranked in the top five, as they will likely be. They play in what appears to be a weak conference, they can't protect the football and they don't have the overall talent of the other top teams. Right now I'd take a team like Missouri over them, and I don't think Mizzou is a title contender either.

Florida was far more impressive in their loss than USF was in their win. If you would honestly bet on USF in a matchup of those two teams, well that's great for you but I think you'd end up very wrong. You can dislike that all you want, but it's just my personal view from what I've seen.

Let's make this clear. I don't think they suck. They are top 25 worthy. Just not top ten, from what I've seen so far. My own personal view based on watching as much college football as my Gameplan subscription and wife will allow. Take it for what you will and rejoice if I'm proven wrong later.

Plus, check out the most awesome hat you've ever seen that I just got:

They might televise the NHL and the Stanley Cup Finals, but USC/Stanford is the game that puts Versus on the map. I saw the play live, I've seen the replay over a dozen times: No way does the Stanford receiver get to the 9 yard line on 4th and 20. But, when you are a 40 point underdog, you need that type of break, like USC screwing up the PAT going into the half, to pull off the upset. Nice job by the announcers saying the tying Stanford touchdown was Touchdown USC and saying that Stanford was playing for a tie by kicking the extra point when the score was 23-23. Now we know why they are announcing for Versus.
With all the talent USC has, they don't have a better QB? That is how the Miami dynasty faltered, when they went from great, to good, to don't screw it up QB's. You knew USC was vulnerable, but this was not the game you expected it in.
Why not make the argument for Missouri now. Unbeaten, knocked off Illinois on a neutral field, humiliated Nebraska. In this year, why the hell not. The Frank Solich Era: The Glory Days of Nebraska Football. Who does Callahan have pictures of?
Illinois vs. Florida in the Capital One Bowl anyone?
Who thought Cinci vs. South Florida might have bigger national title game implications than Georgia vs. Florida before the season started? And, if you thought this, you should be in an institution.
Notre Dame still is playing the wrong quarterback, but, at least no more winless season talk, as the assumed win against Stanford is now up in the air. I don't care if USC throttles them 70-0, let them knock off Boston College. Payback for '93.
In a world full of tumult, thank God for Michigan State, who, as always, once they take a punch, curl into the fetal position. And, thank you Clemson for yet again demonstrating that practicing special teams is highly overrated, as that portion of the game never dictates the outcome of a Clemson game.

In regard to that NFL vs college statement -- normally, I'd be 100% on the other side of that argument, but this year I really can't. On Saturday, the games are more exciting, more dramatic, and (most importantly) there are more of them available to watch. I know going into the weekend that I'll have a chance to view at least 2-3 games that day which will end up being pretty damn good. Can't say that this season about the NFL (at least not what's been broadcast in my area).

Now, regarding Cincinnati -- that's annoying because its making my Terps win over Rutgers even less significant. If Boston College can at least stay legit until Maryland plays 'em, that'd be nice. Of course, given our track record against ACC opponents this year, we'll jump on them early, then start letting them back in the game soon as the third quarter kicks off. (Can you tell that I REALLY think MD should be 5-1?)

wmatistic, I know you roll with the boys from FSU, but I'd like an honest opinion from a fan of a conference rival, and someone who seems to watch a lot of college ball -- is Maryland any good at all, or are they living on borrowed time?

Seen them a couple times and they look like Maryland. That is to say a top 25 team for sure, capable of 10 wins, and yet not quite good enough to run the table or take out a big time team. At this point with them I just don't know what the problem is, or if there is one. Either their coach is consistantly good but not great, or he's great and doing about the best you can expect Maryland to ever do. I'm leaning toward the latter lately. I think they can hang with anyone in the ACC, but I just don't see them winning the conference. That could be because I can't see anyone winning the ACC right now.

Just now, FOX asked Jimmy Johnson about South Florida being nationally ranked and how it happened. His answer? "It shouldn't have happened. They shouldn't be there."

That. Is. HILARIOUS.

All Les Miles said is that the Pac-10 is WAY easier than the SEC. USC losing a conference game somehow makes that a correct statement? Whatever.

That said, I was kind of surprised the LSU crowd and team reacted as they did to the announcemnt that USC had lost. I mean, it's AWESOME that it happened (one week too late for this Washington fan, of course), but they were kind of LOSING TO FLORIDA at the time. Keep your eyes on the prize, boys!

Stanford? I can't believe it.

The thing is, who in their RIGHT MIND goes for it on fourth down when they are within chipshot range of tying the game?

If Miles never pulls a call like that again this season, I'll grant you that he's a genius. If he does it 5 more times this season, it is going to backfire and he's going to lose a game due to something stupid.

I don't know that I would roll the dice like that with the tie right there.

Let me preface this by saying I'd probably kick the field goal.
Reasoning I can see is he has no faith in his kicker, thus, maybe he thinks better shot getting 1 yard than kicking a short field goal at an angle. By kicking a field goal to tie, you would then probably give the ball to Florida probably near the 25 with a few time-outs and a field goal wins the game. Even if you survived that, then you can get into overtime. If you don't trust you're field goal kicker in overtime, you are really going to be in trouble, especially if you get the ball first.

Just means the oddsmakers are smarter than the poll voters. Anyone who had been paying attention knew Wisconsin wasn't very good. And apparently the coaches still aren't paying attention as somehow they figure Wisconsin is still four rankings higher than Illinois in their poll.

USC didn't drop far enough. Still being in the top 10 is an utter joke.

Well, Mike Valenti (the Michigan State alum sports talk radio host that had the famous rant about the loss to Notre Dame last year) just had another great one, this time concerning MSU's loss to Northwestern. While it doesn't have him losing his voice or personal attacks on the coaching staff, he throws in a new wrinkle: he insults fellow Spartan fans.

"This program is going Mary Jo Buttafuoco on itself, and you refuse to see it!"

"Come to the game. Come to the game! 67,000?! What are we, KENTUCKY?!"

"'Oh, but we're 4 and 2!!' Yeah and you're 0-2 in the gutter of the Big 10, with that bucktoothed GOPHER."

"And don't give me this 'it was [defensive coordinator] Narduzzi' crap. Dantonio has the final say on everything. When Narduzzi calls the scheme, what do you think Dantonio is listening to on his headphones? ENYA?! The new Kanye?! He's in direct communication, you IDIOTS!!"

I thought that as a Wolverine fan this season was totally scrap. But I've found that relishing the pain of others (USC, Michigan State, Notre Dame) is helping. ;)
