That is the sound of all the hopes of Oregon and Kansas State as well as their Heisman consideration. Baylor just destroyed K-State. If you wondered what Oregon/Bama would look like well there it is and the Ducks should be thankful Stanford had 3 turnovers. Notre Dame now has to beat USC with a good chance of no Barkley. Yet, I bet they find a way to lose.
The SEC sadly is back in the discussion. Bama will roll past the frauds that is the Bulldogs. The sad part is that even one of them stumbles another one is unrightfully there to take their spot. FSU will probably handle Florida and LSU will find a way to beat a team in the final minute that has no business being on the field. As of now we have Alabama vs. Notre Dame for the title. For now.
The Wee Baby Sheamus.Twitter: @realjoecarfley its a bit more toned down there. A bit.
Only took 991 weeks for Notre Dame to get the #1 spot back. Hopefully, it isn't a 1 week appearance like last time. The one point that will be missed on Oregon will be this: When you have a field goal kicker that has had one opportunity in late November, something bad will happen. Also, big drop from controlling own destiny for national championship to probably not even being in the Rose Bowl. I think Georgia has a shot to knock off Alabama in the SEC Championship Game. Of course, I have all the faith in the world that Georgia will shoot themselves in the foot next week against Georgia Tech, because, they are Georgia. Isn't it state law in Tennessee that the Volunteers coach gets the electric chair if Vandy slaughters them? UCLA dominating USC surprised me. Did have a thought about Baylor pulling the shocker, as the dangerous thing about a team that can score but plays no defense is you catch them the week they play a little defense and turn the ball over a few times.
Great now I do have a reason to care about that loss to NC State. If Notre Dame loses to USC and FSU wins out my team will likely be number two in the human polls but not play for the title because of the computers. What do I hate worse, seeing ND play for it all, or my team get jumped?
The 12/02/02, Sports Illustrated has a great article by the best damn sportswriter, Gary Smith. The short of it is that Devaughn Darling, Florida State linebacker, died while he was doing boot camp style mat drills during a practice.
