    I know it's not college, but I am still ROFLMAO at the contract McNabb got. And that's after all the money the 'skins pissed away on Haynesworth. I wouldn't let McNabb run QB drills for pop warner kids, let alone fork $40 million in GUARANTEED money.

    Boise St. beat TCU last year in their BCS bowl.

    Yes, but TCU beat them in their bowl game the year prior and 5 years ago.

    Agree about Utah. They've had some quality teams and certainly have performed well against the big guys.

    Just wait until Cam Newton becomes ineligible and Auburn has to forfeit their season...or Bama gets the upset. :) If that happens and Oregon loses, for better or worse, a TCU vs. Boise BCS championship will make college football fans' heads explode. :)

    As much as I think it's possible that TCU and Boise State are the best two teams (depending upon what happens the rest of the season, of course) I wouldn't really like to see that. I'd like to see TCU's defense go against Oregon's offense. I think TCU would shut them down, but I'd like to know for sure. Boise State vs. Auburn might be a hugely fun shootout. I'd like to measure the two outsiders versus the others, which didn't get to happen last year. As for ending the season with an argument on who is number one, I actually like that. I don't need closure that badly.

    USC got bombed by the Beavers. There went the goal of a 10 win season. Still have hacks like UCLA and Notre Dame left to beat.

    Auburn survived after Bama choked like dogs. Fairley's the only good defensive player they have. Bama went from shutting down Newton and co in the first half to getting steamrolled in the 2nd. Saban seemed to get outcoached in the 2nd half.

    Speaking of defense, Oregon seems to have none against Zona. I'm still not convinced either one of these teams is that much better than Boise or TCU. CFB needs a playoff so badly it's not even funny anymore.

    And that OSU president is a maroon.

    ^^^ tOSU is lucky the NCAA won't go after their national title. Clarett claimed folks took tests for him and that he didn't attend classes. Given how dumb Clarett was there was likely some truth behind it.

    I HATE Ohio St. From their school president to their football coach to the generous preseason ranks they get year in and out. A few years ago they got a BCS bid over Boise St. despite being lower ranked than them in the final BCS poll. Tressel is lucky Michigan is in the dumps. And even then they got their butt kicked by Wisconsin this year.

    Yeah the Big Ten sucks this year.

    Oh and want to know how big a joke the BCS is? UConn will be in a BCS bowl if they win their last 2 games. :roll:

    The Big East is an atrocity this year. You might have a 4 loss team in the BCS bowl. Florida St. a few years back won the ACC with 4 losses (and deservedly got kicked around in the BCS game).

    Oregon makes some stupid mistakes early in games. They've been lucky their offense and defense step up in 2nd halfs.

    Auburn lucked out as Newton was a non-factor running and Alabama played not to lose instead of playing to win.

    I'm pretty sure TCU would slow down either Auburn or Oregon. Boise St. is very quick on both sides of the ball and has shut up BCS lovers twice.

    Oregon once again turns on its jets in the 2nd half. 48-29. Chip Kelly has won 2 PAC-10 titles in his first 2 years as coach.

    Where's Dedan's Penthouse now? I told him Oregon was going to take over the PAC-10 while USC is down. He thought Washington was going to be a team in contention this year.

    Boise CHOKED! Well, their kicker anyway. Special teams did the team in. The WAC isn't so **** poor after all. They have two more quality teams than the ACC and Big East combined.

    Too bad for the Boise kicker, as he is actually their most prolific kicker ever. The Nevada secondary choked just as bad on the next to last play of regulation. It's unforgivable and straight up poor play to allow a receiver to get behind the D on a Hail Mary play. I'm glad it went to OT. Have fun in the Humanitarian Bowl, Boise St.

    As for the WAC having 2 better teams...I believe Va Tech is 4 spots and >1300 points ahead of Nevada in the latest BCS standings. Boise did the same thing to the Hokies in the first game of the season...long pass against a young and inexperienced D with time running down.

    At least for today...LMAO @ USC.

    Wisconsin's really good. I still think TCU would go ahead of them if Oregon or AU trip up. Though TCU/Wisconsin would be a good Rose Bowl matchup.

    And like I said earlier, it's a shame there's not a 6 team playoff to decide this whole thing. UO/AU get byes, w/ TCU vs Oh St and Stan vs Wisc. Would be a hell of a matchup, its a shame it won't happen anytime before 2013 at the earliest.

    USC ate dog cr@p today. No other way to explain it. The law of averages was going to bite USC one of these days. On the other hand ND might actually have a decent QB in Rees. Now USC needs to beat UCLA to end the year on a good note.

    That 6-team playoff would be awesome. Plus NCAA/schools could make so much money ta-boot, as I'm sure ratings would be through the roof.

    Well played, mr. clueless.

    While I don't have a dog in this fight (not affiliated with USC or ND), it appears that "hack" team just beat the USC cheating athletic department's sleezebag football team on their own field 20-16. And it looks like ND is bowl eligible which begs the question: what bowl game is USC going to? Answer: none, because USC was found guilty of cheating and duly and rightfully punished for their systemic cheating. And what of next year? Again the answer is: none, because USC is duly and rightfully being punished for their cheating.


    - Pete Carroll suddenly resigns from his "dream job?" (read the tea leaves)
    - USC basketball team: sanctions levied against (courtesy of O.J. Mayo).
    - USC woman's tennis team: sanctions levied against.
    - Reggie Bush: stripped of his Heisman Trophy for cheating.
    - USC forced to vacate their 2005 Orange Bowl win because of Reggie Bush.
    - USC potentially forced to vacate a national title (pending appeal).
    - Team nickname ('Trojans'): need I say more?
    - What a mess!....the 'pattern' reads clear to any right-minded, objective viewer.

    however, being the right-minded, objective viewer, I will say this on SC's behalf:

    - creamy 'n dreamy cheerleaders though
    ....yum!...
    - good 'fight song'



    Did you say "hacks?"

    Nah, the only "hacks" were the ones USC's "other O.J." fatally laid on his abused wife and the guy who was tapping her.

    Suffice to say, mix "OJ" + "USC" and you can be guaranteed big trouble.

    Now why don't you "LMAO" @ that.


    That was 21 years ago. Dude!....21 years ago. Further, I did attend UM so I'd appreciate you not attaching your cluelessness 'round the 'Canes if you don't mind. Thx.

    I shouldn't butt in here, but did you just bash USC sports programs for cheating and then say that you attended UM? Wasn't Miami the "USC of the late 80's early 90's" in pretty much all ways (the dominance, cheating, and general d0uche-baggery)?

    http://articles.baltimoresun.com/19...33_1_university-of-miami-orange-bowl-football

    The only thing worse than Miami was the UNLV basketball team (which I believe was recruited directly from prison).

    How many BCS games and ACC titles has Miami won since joining the ACC? Uhhh..ZEEEERO! I'm sure coach Shannon will get it going (been 4 years now). Oh wait, they fired him after he went 28-22. Miami's administration is about as out of touch as ND's.

    Now that Florida is the feeding ground for the ACC and SEC, Florida recruits have more (and perhaps better) choices. Is it any coincidence UF, FSU, and scUM are all mediocre now? Heck, U of S. Florida has arguably more upswing potential. The big 3 in Florida, especially THUG U, have to get with the program and adjust.

    Seems whoever coaches the U these days ends up with this fate:

    Miami's going through a down swing, not dissimilar to the down time SC went through during the 90s. They will be back.

    Fla and FSU are mediocre? UF is rebuilding, but was just at the top and will obviously return there. And FSU's playing in the ACC title game for a BCS berth.

    These things work in cycles. Bama was down, but came back. Auburn was down, but have come back. If Miami gets Gruden, as is being blown in the wind, they will be back sooner rather than later. Don't know if they'll pony up the money to get Chuckie, though.

    General statement: It always amazes me 1.)How emotional people get when it comes to college sports. Just reading around a few message boards, people are downright vicious in their alleigances. Makes the Fed/********* wars look like pillow fights.

    and 2.) How short people's memories are when saying certain programs are done or destined to never return to former glory.

    FSU made it to the championship game almost by default if you look at the Atlantic Division. The MWC and WAC have better caliber teams than what FSU faces in that division. They're barely top 25 material.

    Urban Meyer should have resigned when he had the chance. His instinct told him last year to quit, but his heart said no. Florida's in a slump. I don't know how their recruiting class is, but they're not really cherry-picking of late.

    Miami might get back on its feet (not necessarily BCS bowl level), but in the past 7 years folks have been saying the same thing. The U has lost its swagger, teams aren't scared nor intimidated by the U, and their play has been spotty and lackluster the past several years.

    TCU will join the Big East in 2012. Ugh! I was looking forward to a Boise St./TCU rivalry. The Big East is so desperate to keep their automatic bid they courted a Texas team. That's like having USC (the REAL one in sunny Los Angeles) play in the SEC. Whatever...

    ESPN has the recruiting class of 2011 looking like this.

    1. Texas
    2. Bama
    3. FSU
    4. Florida
    5. Oklahoma
    6. Ohio St.
    7. LSU
    8. Georgia
    9. Clemson
    10. Nebraska
    11. Notre Dame
    12. UNC
    13. USC :cry:
    14. Auburn
    15. Stanford

    And Miami's at #23.

    http://insider.espn.go.com/ncf/recr...m/ncf/recruiting/classrankings?classyear=2011

    Meyer should have left? Why? Any team that loses a guy like Tebow is going to struggle. To say their destined for mediocrity now after 1 bad season is premature. And FSU seems to be on the upswing, if not for a few blown plays they could be a 1 loss team right now, but as is their playing for a BCS bid. Miami looks a bit more bleak, but they can still get the talent, just need to find the right guy and pony up enough to get him there.

    The U swagger has been dead since the 80s, so I don't see how that's an issue. Those early 2000s teams won with supreme NFL talent - Ed Reed, Johnathan Vilma, McGahee, Andre Johnson, Winslow, Shockey, the list is too long to keep going. Now, it's unlikely that they'll get THAT level of talent, but they should return. The problem in Miami seems to be upstairs. The AD and Pres seem to be cheap, that's why they play in Dolphins Stadium instead of a better location in relation to campus. And they seem to go cheap when looking for coaches. It worked with Coker thanks to the aforementioned talent, but Shannon, though a nice recruiter, just wasn't fit to coach college football. They need to get a real coach, someone proven. Gruden may be out of their league, but a guy like Schiano at Rutgers would be a good fit, even though he turned them down a few years back.

    Oh and yeah, OJ's pretty much the trump card for anything bad anyone from any other school has done. Just sayin...

    USC is only at the beginning of their "down cycle", a la, Miami of the last few years. Get ready for the roller coaster ride. Are we forgetting that Miami dominated Nebraska for the national title in 2002 and lost in a controversial double OT game to Ohio State the following year? Florida has one down year and they are in a slump? They've won 2 titles in the last 4 years...more than USC won during their cheating era. And speaking of USC, the attendance at Saturday's ND loss tells the tale...bandwagon fans of the first order. You won't see anything less than a sell-out at other big program stadiums, even in the lean years.

    As for TCU joining the Big East...makes no sense at all...sort of like the Texas schools joining the desperate Pac 10 a few months ago.

    As for FSU, they held on to an old/out of touch coach way too long; the same mistake Penn St is making. Blue chips don't want to play for a fossil. FSU is all about football and they'll get it turned around soon enough.

    Oregon goes 12-0 for the 1st time ever. They've booked their ticket for the title game. Auburn's doing their job vs. S. Carolina. Hope Oregon beats those SEC cheats...

    Oh they'd kill TCU:rolleyes: Isn't that crazy? Not even ranked in Top 25, maybe after this week they will be. Watch, they'll make me eat crow when they win their BCS Bowl game (but I doubt it).

    Big East, Big 10, and WAC all had 3 way ties for 1st.

    UConn got the Big East, Big 10 is a mess (under the pre-BCS era the team the went the longest without playing in the Rose Bowl won which would then go to Mich. St., under the new system the highest ranked BCS team wins which should be Wisconsin, but Wisconsin lost to Mich. St. while Ohio St. didn't face Mich St. this year and lost to Wisconsin).

    WAC is a tossup between Nevada, Boise St., and Hawaii. The classic "team A beat B, but A lost to C" issue. Boise St. is higher ranked and imo the better team. The WAC was certainly better than the Big East producing 3 10-win teams, two that would definitely be BCS caliber or at least playoff capable.

    The stabbing occurred in Pasadena, the home of the Rose Bowl and UCLA's home stadium.
