Big, Huge, Monumental

Four.

That's the number of the Top 8 in the BCS that lost this weekend.

Everyone, let's have a moment of silence for the collective title hopes of Louisville, Texas, Auburn and California.



Moving on.

Florida looks to jump to third. Won a game they shouldn't have. Ol' Ball Coach was let down by his kicker. And a good one at that. Succop was 12 for 14 with a long of 55 before that blocked kick at the end of the game. Florida has a pretty easy road ahead, with West Carolina and Florida State coming before the SEC Championship, likely against Arkansas.

USC up to fourth. Convincing win against Oregon. After being shocked last week, they kept their name in the ring. But with Cal and Notre Dame left, it's either feast or famine. With the strength of sked points they would earn with those two wins, they would certainly jump over Florida and most likely the OSU-UM loser. This is the team to watch.

And the Irish most likely will jump to fifth. Talk about overrated all you want, but as long as they keep winning the games they are supposed to, they will get to a BCS bowl. They need the most help to get in the national championship game. They need a blowout in the OSU-UM game, and it would help if UM won. Plus, they need Florida to lose one of their last 3. They do at least play USC. That matchup, for the second straight year, will have NC implications.

Who's next?

Does Louisville stay up this high? You have to think that Rutgers goes here, but Arkansas, West Virginia, LSU and Boise State were all in front of New Jersey's state uni before this weekend. And all of those teams won. BSU won a squeaker, the rest had easy games. I say 6 Arkansas, 7 Rutgers, 8 LSU, 9 WVU, 10 Louisville, 11 BSU, 12 Wisconsin. Keep an eye on Wisconsin. They only have one loss, and that was to Michigan.


WTH of the day: Brandon Cox, QB of Auburn, had four completions, four incompletions, and four interceptions.

Felt it was such a big day it needed it's own post.

Talk about a separation saturday.

Days like yesterday is what makes college football so great. I love a good upset, mainly because I think the BCS sucks and needs to be done away with, but also because I like to root for the underdog.

good work freak

With all these teams losing, the OSU/UM loser's chance of a rematch go up.

Isiah Thomas said...

if FLA and USC lose then there will be a rematch.

I don't see any other team jumping the OSU/UM loser if those 2 lose.

JFreak said...

Like I said, if UM blows out OSU and ND beats USC, I could see a UM-ND rematch, but that's the only scenario I can think of.

Isiah Thomas said...

def overrated EP.

Joe - just put Campbell in now.

Isiah Thomas said...

seriously, why don't defenses just grab the shit out of the other teams best RB to knock him out of the game. Its only a 15 yd penalty and the other team loses its best player.

JFreak said...

Pats lose twice in a row.

SG might kill himself.

The Rev said...

Damn I needed that!

It's nice to not be pissed off on a Sunday night.

The Rev said...

JFreak said...

I didn't know you had any.

The Rev said...

15 yards for putting the ball under your shirt?

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I ain't your bitch, fatty. I am here though.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I'm irritable because my money fantasy hoops team blows right now.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I'd like to commend Shareef by constantly being outscored by Kevin Fucking Martin.

The Rev said...

Meiz, you are definitely a drunken bitch. But we love that.

JFreak said...

Agreed on the Jacobs penalty, that was just dumb.

Can't comment on anything else though, I switched to fox and watched Family Guy.

temwr said...

Computer average for Rutgers is 2??

Why is nobody talking about this?

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I was playing Freedom Fighters

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I vow to not drink for one full week. It'll be the first time in like four or five years. I swear I will do it.
