My College Football Thoughts



  • Baylor returned to being Baylor as Oklahoma State killed them. That was depressing, and it wasn't even noon on Saturday before I went into a fetal position.
  • That being said, Texas is worse as they were annihilated by a bad Kansas State team. It's so bizarre in Austin that I almost feel bad for them. Almost.
  • And the Aggies beat Oklahoma? If Baylor had won, it would have been delicious for next week when the Aggies come to Waco. Instead it might just be a beat down. But I've always like the Ags.
  • TCU?  You are closer to being in the National Championship game than last year. I predict Auburn will be beaten by Alabama in the "Iron Bowl" (whatever that means) and you'll finally get your shot. How that's possible borders on the surreal.
  • Did you see Iowa State go for two and the big win against Nebraska? If the place holder didn't throw like a second grade girl - scratch that - a second grade girl with no athletic ability, they would have won. 
  • LSU is ridiculously lucky/crazy/good.
  • I've always thought the Sagarin Rankings were the most accurate.

Anyone know the scoop on the fight at the Decatur/Castleberry Game?

LSU and their 'Mad"Hatter of a coach are just good. Before their bye week they were so sloppy but now they seem to have it together. So glad they beat 'Bama, there are a lot more teams better than 'Bama and I bet Auburn wins that game, even though I hope they don't since they beat LSU. I don't think that TCU is getting a fair shake in the rankings....Boise plays a not ranked Hawaii team and TCU is barely ahead of them in the rankings after putting a beat down on UTAH...please.

Yeah it was me and our pal Barry mixing it up. I taught him some River Oaks / Jacksboro Highway manners if you know what I mean.

A one-loss SEC team will pass TCU in the rankings if it ends that way. LSU, Alabama, Auburn don't have the good fortune of being able to close out an unbeaten season by beating San Diego State and New Mexico like TCU does.

Note that the two rating methods vary greatly on Auburn. It is ranked 11th on the one that is supposedly most predictive but is 1st in the less accurate one that the BCS uses. At this point, it looks to me that is should be Oregon vs. TCU. Alabama can solve the BCS garbage by beating Auburn. All of this still argues for an actual playoff between the top 8 teams.

Could you imagine all of them lying on a long table where you could have a little of each one kinda like a Buffet.

How can people still complain about TCU's season? They dominated a #5 team in a stadium where the home team hadn't lost in 21 games.

Don't talk about the team unless you've actually watched them play. It's impressive.

How can you play the "big boys" when they won't play you?

I like how you are working some Brian Wilson schtick into your machine to make it more delicious!

TCU is the real deal and I'd love to see them put a beat down on an SEC team in the national championship. Of course, it'd suck to be Boise St. and watch that since they beat TCU in a bowl last year.

Good luck to Baylor vs. A&M. Art Briles deserves a lot of credit. Can't turn them into champions overnight!

"TCU..put a beat down on an SEC team", now that is funny right there I don't care who you are! Unless of course, Vanderbilt miraculously makes it to the National Championship
