    Nothing wrong with psychology. Might not be much demand for jobs, but it's no a sleeper class or anything.

    Yeah. Those aren't exactly easy majors either.

    This Psyche graduate salutes you, good sir!

    OT : Northwestern lost to Penn State. Well, it looks like their time in the top 25 was pretty short lived huh?

    [Edit] Forgot to mention this, but Arkansas beat the shit out of Auburn, 24-7. So, the question is, which team will end this season with the dubious 'honor' of being the WORST team in the SEC?

    Jeff Driskel has to be one of the worst quarterbacks I've ever seen when it comes to making decisions.

    Who do you consider to be worse: Mettenberger or Driskel? Personally, I'm leaning towards Mettenberger being worse. To me, it always seems like Mettenberger has the potential to completely fuck up a game for LSU, like he's waiting for the perfect opportunity to troll the shit out of LSU fans.

    [EDIT] Oh LSU, I so love to see you fuck yourselves over. You gain 56 yards, but turn the ball over as you do so. You're oh so impressive.

    Actually, I'll take Frasier from Auburn over either for bad decisions, but Driskel's fumble and his constantly taking sacks over throwing it away is not helping his cause. Fortunately, LSU's defense is wearing down and it's easier to run.

    Woot, Florida wins. LSU overrated, proven today.

    Well, it's a long game, but South Carolina has 21 points in ten minutes. Not looking good already for Georgia.

    More losses to shake up the standings, I always say. LSU's going down the rankings, as is Georgia. Then again, given their competition, you wouldn't expect them to fall too hard.

    Ohio State pulled away from Nebraska, and Oregon's showing why another team is overrated.

    Know what bothers me? Teams like Stanford jumping from really low up to the top ten, just because they beat a top-ranked team. I don't know how the polls can assume that one win makes a team that good. Notice they lost the next week. That's what bugs me about the rankings, too many drastic leaps. At least early on. Maybe it'll all flow and balance out later.

    UCLA is getting whooped by Cal. Unless they get their act together, that'll be yet another ranked team dropping to an unranked opponent (one with a losing record, at that).

    I would like to say "You're Welcome" to Texas A&M for both handing them the game in the 4th quarter (WE ARE! OLE MISS!) and getting them ranked.

    I don't think there's enough booze in my city to drown my sorrows after that loss...

    Anyone see any pre-BCS ranking guesses?
    The less you know, the more you believe.


    Actually, Mr. Lennon, I CAN imagine a world with no hate, religion, war, or violence.
    I can also imagine attacking such a world, because they would never see it coming.

    Attempting to put all bias against MSU (the Mississippi one) aside, I still have to ask, "Why is fuck's sake are they ranked and even thought of int a BCS Championship situation?"

    I'm a fan of the SEC and even I have to say this shows some SEC bias. They're 5-0, yeah, but they've played NO ONE so far and played them all poorly. I really hope Tennessee takes them out this weekend so that they drop out of the rankings and all discussion and speculation ceases.

    Awesome, thanks for putting that up there.

    You think Oregon will keep it's #2 even with the bye this weekend?

    Isn't South Carolina playing LSU this weekend? If they beat them bad enough, I see them going to Number 2.
