    Its more impressive when a team that hardly ever wins does the same thing as a good team. Also people in Clemson expect to win 9 or 10 games every year. No one in the country, even people in Durham, expects Duke to win more than 5 or 6.
    I know what you are saying, but that's just not how it works. You can't beat shit teams and have 2 loses to shit team and expect to get to a BCS bowl. They should be happy with the chick-fil-a bowl if they even end up there.

So as I explained a few pages ago, there's nothing stopping the Orange Bowl from picking Oregon vs. Alabama if they so choose. But with Oregon's recent performances, many people are predicting that they will go with Clemson. They could go with Baylor as well.
    Ah, ok. I wasn't sure exactly how that was going to work. While I am a huge fan of Oregon, their performance over the last 1/3 of this season has me worried about a matchup against Alabama.

    I'm gonna vote against the ice bowls mentioned on the previous page, that doesn't sound fun.

    I think it snowed here once in my lifetime, like 23 years ago. Brrrrr I'm cold just thinking about it.

    Please please please tell me you're being sarcastic.

    Because the report was filed almost a year ago: before he was anyone to care about.

    And we all knew he wasn't getting charged because it's he said/she said at this point AND Tallahassee's DA would be crucified and burned for charging FSU's superstar. Hell, half of the people in Tallahassee would give their own daughter to FSU's QB if he were doing what Winston is.

    Yep, thank god too. I still can't believe UCF is going to presumably get one too. NIU shouldn't be playing against any of the big boys.

    And the good games today get started at 4. SEC championship should be interesting, I think Auburn has enough momentum to knock off Missou but I'd like to see Missou win the SEC championship after all the shittalking I've heard from the SEC about how they're so much better than other conferences. It's been fun watching you try to dominate the two middle of the pack Big 12 teams you let in and failing.

    Go Bucks! Have to say I'm worried about this game though. All SEC rhetoric aside, MSU is a very good team and they're going to bring it.

    Didn't the bucks get placed in the trash where they belong during their last 2 national championship game appearances? yeah thats right they did, play a team above #16 during the regular season and beat them by more than 7 points then talk shit, Michigan sucked cock this year and put up 41? points on your "amazing" team

    Ted Ginn Jr. getting railed out of the game clearly was the nail

    Sorry bro, I can't hear you over the sound of your conference not playing in the big game this year. Enjoy the GMAC bowl though, I hear the weather in Detroit is wonderful this time of year.

    Mizzou went 48-19 (27-14 in conference) in the 6 seasons prior to joining the SEC. They won their division in 2007, 2008 and 2010. Hardly middle of the pack. They also bombed their first season in the SEC.

    Texas A&M just so happened to pick up the Heisman trophy winner for their entrance to the SEC.

    We will see what happens today.

    Sure, but he was replacing a first round pick. I think the main takeaway is that competitive balance deep in conferences between the Big XII and SEC was a lot closer than most people thought. I don't know if that's true or not. Pro drafts suggest that it's not.

    - - - Updated - - -

    I tend to think that the winner of this game should go to the title game. Ohio State's schedule is insanely soft and that Michigan win was super sketchy. I think they should basically be treated like Boise State of year's past.

    I have to ask about onside kicks. It's live after 10 yards, but when does it become "unlive"? Because if it's kicked down field, then it's not live unless it's touch by the other team. Someone help me out here.

    Anyone else noticing that CBS seems to have a problem with showing the score, time left, down, yards - any information about the game.

    Not 100% sure, but that's an interesting question. To my knowledge an onside kick doesn't require a special formation, so that couldn't be it.

    Missou is in for a world of hurt here if they can't figure out how to defend the run in the second half. Auburn's rushing attack is looking really strong today.

    The way I've always understood the rules. The kicking team can not block/hit anyone till the ball has traveled 10 yards. I believe the receiving team can come up and attempt to catch the ball before it has traveled the 10 yards (just dangerous to do so). The kicking team can never recover or have a chance at the ball till the receiving team has touched the ball.

    That's not entirely correct, because on an onside the receiving team isn't required to touch the ball before the kicking team takes possession, as long as the ball has traveled 10 yards. Again, not sure how it all works though.

    EDIT: Missou gave almost 500 yards on the ground after 3 quarters? Yikes.

    Not really my conference but it'll be a sad day if ohio state, regardless if they win or lose vs their mediocre opponent tonight get in over a team (Auburn) that had to play the following teams:
    #6 LSU (their only loss)
    #24 Ole Miss
    #7 Texas A&M
    #25 Georgia
    #1 Alabama
    #5 Missouri (assuming missouri doesn't score 17 points in 3minutes 40 seconds)

    And ohio state:
    #23 Wisconsin, won by 7
    #16 Northwestern, won by 10
    and........that's it

    Yeah, the BCS is an amazing system, 4 team playoff isn't any better either

    Ohio State's not going to win if they keep killing themselves with penalties like that. I'm not sure what the hell Shazier thought he was doing.

    EDIT: Impressive list of mostly 3-4 loss teams you've got there, Tylenol, mostly propped up by undeserved preseason ratings. I'll see you in a year on this board, we'll see how much shit you're talking then about other conferences.
