......precocious and full of wonderment.

Quick Hitters:

Who has the "best" loss of the 1 loss teams? Timing is everything.

I used to say "every game is a playoff game for CFB, it doesn't need a playoff". Wrong. CFB needs a playoff. The NCAA is all about making money but refuse to adapt and create a playoff system which would create a shitload of money. I realize its not that simple but come on mayne.

Who's the Heisman front runner? Dixon?

Navy and Air Force? Seriously, Chuck Weiss shoulda been fired a week ago.

Move over SEC, the Big 12 is the best conference right now. NS

I hate when CFB officials review an obvious call, it serves no purpose other than to fire up the crowd. Stop it.

Impressive win for Cotto. Welterweight is an awesome weight class.

Leandrino! The Captain nets 39 on Saturday in a starting role for the injured Raja Bell. I'm positive he could avg 25+ a game if he started, easily. Oh yeah, the Suns were 3-1 on a quick East Coast trip. Weird trip, 2 sets of b-2-b's. In both 2nd games, the other team was also in the 2nd game of a b-2-b.

Did you know the Kings have a curfew? I didn't.

Dallas, fuck, great team (at least for the NFC). Gibbs? Hit the front office. Get Cowher in there.

Vince Young, the magical wins are wearing off and people are starting to see the warts. This will get worse.

AD hurt - it was only a matter of time. Shows you how foolish "maybe one of the all time greats" instant history is. The media, Shammy et al, are always too eager to create more hype than necessary. That's nothing new to report but its annoying. Let the story create itself, don't create the story.

Adam V misses two bunnies in the same game? No matter how poor the refs are, you toss 6 picks you don't deserve to win. If your team is coached by Norv you don't deserve to win. Go figure.

I still haven't seen American Gangster, this bothers me.

CYE really rallied the last few episodes.

Thank you for coming out, good night and god bless.

"Did you know the Kings have a curfew? I didn't."

This stems from Reggie Theus' days as coach of Deering High.

JFreak said...

Colts were robbed.

Spaceman Spiff said...

the refs didnt say false start, they said 'simulated the snap', whatever that means

Spaceman Spiff said...

gibbs has to stop 'coaching', right now

Spaceman Spiff said...

1st and goal, no score
2nd and goal, no score
3rd and goal, no score
penalty on eagles
4th and goal, no score
5th and goal, no score
6th and goal, no score
7th and goal, settle for field goal
gibbs retires on spot

Spaceman Spiff said...

brutal

Spaceman Spiff said...

waitress at the bar had an awesome body, face was a 4, but damn

El Padrino said...

freak stop it

El Padrino said...

"waitress at the bar had an awesome body, face was a 4, but damn"

spiff that's why god created doggystyle and reverse cowgirl

ToddPacker said...

rev could be in trouble today

ToddPacker said...

nick calathes is pretty good

ToddPacker said...

i didn't see any of the colts game last night

El Padrino said...

peyton threw 6 picks

6

blue said...

I hate to say this, but the colts did get ass-fucked by the refs at the end of the game

blue said...

"rev could be in trouble today"

especially with tem in canada visiting a fucking waterfall.

blue said...

6 picks in a game has to be some sort of record

blue said...

most coaches would have pulled a QB by the time he had his 5th pick

ToddPacker said...

double duty on the manning face yesterday

ToddPacker said...

i still can't believe the zookers beat OSU @ OSU

El Padrino said...

"I hope I can beat the worst team"

you can't

El Padrino said...

OSU was overated

Illini have the Juice.

blue said...

just goes to show, you can't stop a team led by a guy named Juice with one of their colors being orange

El Padrino said...

mich sucks

ToddPacker said...

tem @ a waterfall definitely hurts the chances of rev

El Padrino said...

i'm leaving early today

real early

El Padrino said...

but first i must get some bacon

El Padrino said...

then i'll bang out some work and bounce

ToddPacker said...

tebow had a nice game... solidified an invite to NY for the heisman award ceremony... i think he'll finish 3rd

ToddPacker said...

i think tebow only needs 4 more rushing TDs to break the NCAA rushing TDs record for a QB in one season

ToddPacker said...

ep leaving early will hurt rev

ToddPacker said...

bacon is good

blue said...

tebow will be threebow

ToddPacker said...

now that oregon is in the 2 spot, i think ucla will beat them

ToddPacker said...

tebow put up 7 tds (2 passing / 5 rushing) against the ole ball coach

Big Brother's Brother said...

teebow rushed for more TDs in a season than emmitt smiff.

wtf.

ToddPacker said...

the hawaii game was entertaining saturday night

El Padrino said...

tp on road games do you still hang with everyone or just watch it home and chill

Big Brother's Brother said...

how many albums will this create?

ToddPacker said...

if emmitt had stayed for his junior year (spurriers 1st year) he would have had a ton of TDs.... and probably a heisman

Big Brother's Brother said...

ell-oh-ell @ keef

blue said...

emmitt smith was overrrated

Beth said...

TP, some Georgia fans around here now refer to Tebow as TEARbow since he was apparently crying after the UGA loss. Just thought I'd get you riled up early on a Monday. :-)

But hey, impressive game by the Dawgs this weekend. Too bad it probably is too little too late to get them to the SEC championship game. But if they win out they will likely make a BCS bowl at least.

ToddPacker said...

"tp on road games do you still hang with everyone or just watch it home and chill"

usually home and chill.... the guys i tailgate with don't live close by... 3 guys in the miami area, 2 guys in the tallahassee area, 1 guy from jax, 2 guys from orlando and 1 crazy guy from ny that flies down for almost every game

blue said...

UGA is a joke...knowshon sucks

ToddPacker said...

"TP, some Georgia fans around here now refer to Tebow as TEARbow since he was apparently crying after the UGA loss. Just thought I'd get you riled up early on a Monday."

UGA fans are retarded... i think i heard teabag tebow 1000 times at the UGA game.... silly rednecks

El Padrino said...

damn i was gonna say the commute for the miami guys sucks but then the NY trumped them

ToddPacker said...

"how many albums will this create?"


wow, i gotta say more than dead tupac

El Padrino said...

whoa on the kanye thing
he's a bitch so he must be taking it hard

ToddPacker said...

"damn i was gonna say the commute for the miami guys sucks but then the NY trumped them"


yeah the miami guys complain all the time about the drive... they usually miss a few games

El Padrino said...

fucking plastic surgeries
leave your shit alone
youz born the way youz born and that's it

ToddPacker said...

was kanye's mom's doctor white?

blue said...

why does kanye's mom have a publicist?

blue said...

I'm sure the Kanye will blame George Bush

El Padrino said...

she wrote a book

ToddPacker said...

wow, 9 times this season a top 5 team lost to an unranked opponent... oregon will make it 10

ToddPacker said...

the zookers were the unranked team to beat a top 5 twice (OSU and Wisc)

blue said...

Arkansas beating LSU has a better chance of happening than UCLA beating Oregon.

ToddPacker said...

oregon will choke

El Padrino said...

houston nutt is a retard
no way Ark beats LSU

blue said...

Darren McFadden

blue said...

and I don't think either scenario is likely, but I was just saying that a team that lost to ND will not beat the #2 team in the country.

ToddPacker said...

i think zeke brought this up over the weekend, chuck weis is terrible and should be fired... why are ND fans not all over the tight-pants wearer

blue said...

I could see Oregon choking against Oregon State, but not UCLA

blue said...

the Air Force loss isn't as bad as the Navy loss. AF is at least typically a top 40 team or so...but ND is horrible.

blue said...

now, if they lose to DUKE that would be hilarious

ToddPacker said...

"now, if they lose to DUKE that would be hilarious"

it would be

El Padrino said...

Tennesee destroyed Ark
and contained McFadden

ToddPacker said...

OSU could still get into the NC game

(ns)

El Padrino said...

not if Mangino eats em'

blue said...

OSU needs a ton of help, and only playing one more game kills their chances.

Spaceman Spiff said...

dorrell should be fired from UCLA on the ND loss alone

ToddPacker said...

yeah that nd loss was horrible

Spaceman Spiff said...

michigan losing hurt OSU too

isiah thomas said...

maybe Kayne could cover "Dear Mama" from pac.

isiah thomas said...

who do you have 1 & 2 TP?

Dixon and Mcfadden?

blue said...

I would say Dixon is #1 right now, and maybe Matt Ryan? would be #2?

Personally, I think Tebow is probably #2

ToddPacker said...

i almost cut off my fingertip yesterday while trimming hedges... lots of blood... i probably needed a stitch or 2, but used some super-glue instead

isiah thomas said...

the Air Force loss isn't as bad as the Navy loss. AF is at least typically a top 40 team or so...but ND is horrible.

this is "kinda" true but a team as hyped as ND should beat Air Force 99 times out of a hundo.

ToddPacker said...

matt ryan stinks

isiah thomas said...

ABT

Anyone But Tebow

isiah thomas said...

I'm still kicking myself for not taking GB in the office suicide pool.

El Padrino said...

Dixon #1 for sure
#2 is anybody's guess

no clear cut
McFadden should be invited on last week's game alone

El Padrino said...

i think i made a million dollars on that GB bet

it was gold

blue said...

Air force has beaten ND in the past, that was my point, they've beaten some other good teams in the past couple of years.

Losing to Navy is almost as bad as losing to Duke. Especially if you haven't lost to Navy in 47 years or whatever.

isiah thomas said...

and how gay is Y!....a tie in the suicide pool?

gay.

Weasel lets settle this on LOV. keep it going. 1 winner.

blue said...

toby will put that suicide tie championship in his "trophy case" and call it good

ToddPacker said...

"who do you have 1 & 2 TP?"


yeah, dixon and mcfadden.... sophs get no love in the heisman race

ToddPacker said...

"toby will put that suicide tie championship in his "trophy case" and call it good"


aahahahahhahaha

ToddPacker said...

i'm only 1 behind toby in the ncaa pick'em

ToddPacker said...

"ABT

Anyone But Tebow"


next year

isiah thomas said...

I'm up 1.1 pts in my $$$ league, other guy has no more players, I've got Vern Davis.

Do I sit him?

blue said...

Pat White or Steve Slaton get no love in the heisman?

ToddPacker said...

how much time has hart missed this season.... i thought he would be a top 3 heisman guy

ToddPacker said...

sit vern

ToddPacker said...

"Pat White or Steve Slaton get no love in the heisman?"


that usf loss hurt them

isiah thomas said...

If Hart stayed healthy he'd be up there.

He's missed parts, if not all of the last 5 or so games.

El Padrino said...

afraid vern will fumble?

blue said...

if Oklahoma's QB wasn't a freshman he'd be getting more hype

isiah thomas said...

yeah for some reason I can see Vern with an early fumble and getting no more looks.

although with PPR a fumble is only -1.

El Padrino said...

i wouldnt sit em
unless your really desperate for the win

isiah thomas said...

Fred Taylor, 10K.

I can't even type "HOF?"

Does this devalue 10K? ns

El Padrino said...

SF might win tonight
i'm taking those points

Mills said...

OU and Mizzou are the best 1 loss teams.

OU > Mizzou (beat them straight up), but it was at OU, Mizzou turned the ball over 4x, and was a tight contest.

Mizzou has the "best" loss of all 1 loss teams.

LSU's loss to Kentucky is not looking so great with Kentucky at 7-3 right now.

El Padrino said...

Taylor is not a HF

blue said...

Fred Taylor was a very good running back when he wasn't hurt. It's amazing he got to 10k with all his injuries.

ToddPacker said...

i got seattle in the suicide II pool

Mills said...

Zeke -- what happened in Survival Football?

We both lost, so we both won?

isiah thomas said...

1 of those Big 12 teams will play for the title.

isiah thomas said...

We both lost, so we both won?

We'll finish it here on LOV. Keep it rolling, can't use the teams we've already used.

ToddPacker said...

fred taylor is from the SEC, so he's an automatic HOFer

Mills said...

Packer picked up another game on me this week in college fb.

not good. 1 game separation.

isiah thomas said...

and Tebow is having a good season I guess but 3 losses = no heisman, irregardless.

ToddPacker said...

"1 of those Big 12 teams will play for the title."


looks that way... unless OU chokes to OK State and then beats the mizzu/kansas winner

blue said...

Oregon is better than Oklahoma or Mizzou...toby's vagina has been listening to too much big-12 talk radio.

El Padrino said...

i'm out of that LOV II suicide pool
had NO

Dick Nolan died, Niners will rally around the gipper tonight

ToddPacker said...

"and Tebow is having a good season I guess but 3 losses = no heisman, irregardless."


plus he's only a soph.

isiah thomas said...

Oregon might be better but 3 teams in the top 5 = huge lift to the SOS.

isiah thomas said...

maybe Tebow winning the Heisman could be this years campaign for Crier.

ToddPacker said...

oregon will choke

Mills said...

just goes to show, you can't stop a team led by a guy named Juice with one of their colors being orange
---------
Iowa beat Juice and the Zooks.

Iowa >>> OSU.

blue said...

who has oklahoma beat? nobody...and don't give me "texas" as an example...same question for Kansas...that's why kansas is undefeated and 4th in the BCS.

ToddPacker said...

the campaign stuff cracks me up

blue said...

*oklahoma did beat Mizzou.

so I take that back about OU, but then, who has Missouri beaten?

isiah thomas said...

blue you're making valid points, but their isn't a "common sense" facotr in the BCS.

Mills said...

We'll finish it here on LOV. Keep it rolling, can't use the teams we've already used.
-------
ok.

can't believe we both got burned. i thought it was the easiest week of the year (to date) for a pick. guessed wrong.

blue said...

the truth is that Kansas or Missouri has to lose another game, so that actually hurts OU if it's missouri who loses. Kansas, with wins over Mizzou and OU, would jump into the top 2 though, no doubt.

blue said...

Oregon and LSU have a pretty comfortable lead right now in the standings though, not huge, but those percentage points are tough to overcome.

Mills said...

Oregon is better than Oklahoma or Mizzou...toby's vagina has been listening to too much big-12 talk radio.
----------
I think Mizzou will beat KU and OU in a rematch.

They are good.

blue said...

PtP salute to Veterans day today

Mills said...

but KU-MU will be SUPER close. KU has the better D, both have good offenses, but I think MU is just a pinch better, AND they are due against KU, and KU will have big nerves.

ToddPacker said...

anyone watch college gameday... it was terrible... what a cop out... who cares about amherst and williams except for a couple of stupid chowds

blue said...

yeah, gameday was ridiculous. Maybe one of the producers went to Amherst or something.

ToddPacker said...

didn't ou lose to someone real crappy?

ToddPacker said...

and by the way the fact that the university of Oklahoma is referred to as OU still bothers me... i want answers

Mills said...

listen -- i live next to KU fans, and with them good in both basketball AND football, it is not a great time of the year for me.

Unfortunately they are for real.

And so is Mizzou.

And so is OU.

After that, the big 12 is week.

So much for the big12 north sucking this year though.

ToddPacker said...

ou loss was to colorado

Keith S said...

Oregon plays at UofA this Thursday night. I could see them losing that. UofA has their QB back and have played well the last couple weeks. If Oregon gets by them, they win out. No way they lose to UCLA

Mills said...

and by the way the fact that the university of Oklahoma is referred to as OU still bothers me... i want answers
----------
do you want the truth?









you can't handle the truth!

Mills said...

didn't ou lose to someone real crappy?
-----
colorado i believe.

Spaceman Spiff said...

yea colorado

Mills said...

I think Oregon is in NC at this point.

I just think LSU's one loss is the worst of the bunch.

Mills said...

outside of OU's == but as i have already said -- i think OU goes down in rematch with mizzou.

isiah thomas said...

I was watching that OU/Colo game early on and OU was rolling, CO had a helluva comeback.

blue said...

Oregon won't lose unless it's to Oregon State...they are coming off the bye this week against arizona, so you know they've cooked up some fun offensive plays this week. And since they play on a thursday this week, it gives them a long week to get ready for UCLA.

isiah thomas said...

TP - did you see herby and Fowler at the end, seemed like there was tension.

Spaceman Spiff said...

keith was ucla's new QB any good

ToddPacker said...

"TP - did you see herby and Fowler at the end, seemed like there was tension."


yeah.... good stuff

blue said...

the shitty thing about Oregon's loss is that of all the teams, except maybe Oklahoma, they are the only ones who had that game won, and choked it away. 2 TD lead in the 4th quarter, and then Dixon throws 2 INTs,(only thrown 3 all season) and the fumble at the goalline at the end of the game...major choke.

ToddPacker said...

oregon lost to a team that has lost 4 out of it's last 5 games... that is not a good loss

Spaceman Spiff said...

kanye has bad karma for being a douche

blue said...

did anyone see the end of the Colorado/Iowa State game? Probably not, but it was weird. The clock was stopped with 1 second left...CU's kicker kicked a 56 yard FG to tie the game, but then the officials come out on the field and say that the clock started before they snapped the ball, time expired so no play. I only saw the highlights so I was befuddled.

Spaceman Spiff said...

when are they gonna release the seinfeld box set

isiah thomas said...

EP - they're calling for 60 MPH winds at the game tonight, maybe they'll die down to 40-50.

take the under.

blue said...

"oregon lost to a team that has lost 4 out of it's last 5 games... that is not a good loss"

my point was that nobody has "outplayed" Oregon this year...LSU was outplayed by Florida, and Auburn, let alone Kentucky.

isiah thomas said...

*35-40 at game time

isiah thomas said...

LSU lost to Kentuckee who lost to Miss St.

not good

ToddPacker said...

the "who lost to" game is always fun

El Padrino said...

herby was 100% pissed they were there and not @ O state

blue said...

hahahahahahahaah...

So shamhoff tried to up his cred by linking to a "top 20 blog entries" of the year post in which one of his was ranked 19th....

blue said...

one of shammy's readers called him out

"I think it says something about the blogosphere's credibility when one of the top posts of the year is a fairytale by an unemployed guy, trying to woo his new found love."

El Padrino said...

"EP - they're calling for 60 MPH winds at the game tonight, maybe they'll die down to 40-50.

take the under."


good call, i'll take the points to
San fran and the under
with mayne a play on team totals or under first half

i love it

blue said...

Miss State, isn't really all that bad this year. It's a non-traditional year for them...they beat Auburn and Alabama in the same year for the first time in a long time.

ToddPacker said...

miss state has the same record as cal.... they beat 'bama, auburn and kentucky... they're not that bad

El Padrino said...

and they have a black coach

i know that because every ten minutes ESPn lets me know that Croom is the first black coach in the SEC

El Padrino said...

thanks espn

isiah thomas said...

Miss State, isn't really all that bad this year. It's a non-traditional year for them...they beat Auburn and Alabama in the same year for the first time in a long time.

miss state has the same record as cal.... they beat 'bama, auburn and kentucky... they're not that bad

*whispering*

GASP! Maybe the SEC is just a weeeeee bit overrated this season.

Miss St. is not good.

Mills said...

did anyone see the end of the Colorado/Iowa State game? Probably not, but it was weird. The clock was stopped with 1 second left...CU's kicker kicked a 56 yard FG to tie the game, but then the officials come out on the field and say that the clock started before they snapped the ball, time expired so no play. I only saw the highlights so I was befuddled.
--------------
yeah, crazy. esp since the kicker made one right before that, but the refs disallowed that one too because the buffs supposedly snapped the ball before the officials started the clock on that one.

crazy.

Keith S said...

"keith was ucla's new QB any good"

I wasn't too impressed with him

blue said...

Croom probably saved his job this year...

Bear Bryant would be proud

Keith S said...

"herby was 100% pissed they were there and not @ O state"

They were probably going to be in Ann Arbor this week so they wouldn't have OSU 2 weeks in a row. Not sure if they're going there now after they both lost.

isiah thomas said...

Seriously - how good is

South Carolina?
Auburn?
Alabama?
Kentucky?
Tennessee?
Florida? (sorry TP)

these are "good" teams, nothing special though.

blue said...

the answer is "any one of those teams would beat Illinois"

blue said...

I don't think the SEC is as good as the hype, but not giving Miss. State any credit for beating those teams is just sour grapes

isiah thomas said...

the answer is "any one of those teams would beat Illinois"

ah blew.

Did I type "the Big 10 > SEC"?

That's crazy talk.

I'm just saying the SEC is full of decent teams, not great teams.

isiah thomas said...

Miss St is not a good team.

I'll give them credit for a few good wins but they're not good.

blue said...

those teams you listed are better than any 6 teams you could list from any other conference. Take the top 2 out of any conference and tell me that you'd honestly take a Nebraska, or a Texas A&M, or Oklahoma State, over any of those teams

blue said...

and fuck you for making me defend the SEC

isiah thomas said...

we'll see during bowl season.

those teams are good enough, they're not world beaters and I don't think they'll all steamroll teams in their bowl games.

blue said...

damnit, i need to go take a shower

isiah thomas said...

If you put Miss St in the Big 10 I could see them having the same 4 losses. NS

blue said...

i'd agree with that, they'd beat Iowa though

blue said...

except that this is the year Iowa will win 10 or 11 games because they don't have OSU or UM on their schedule.

El Padrino said...

down year for the SeC

no doubt about it

ToddPacker said...

tem was hungry about 15 minute ago

blue said...

and bowl game rankings are somtimes misleading. The WAC always wins 3 out of 4, or all 4 games they are in, and nobody would consider them the "best conference"

ToddPacker said...

down year for elite teams in the SEC... but they are deeper than any other conference

Mills said...

Iowa has not been good this year. WR suspensions/injuries derailed us early mid-season. And bad QB play. But they have at least won 3 straight to get bowl eligble.

hopefully we can take Western Mich out this weekend, and then rock the team we play in the shitty-city-so-no-fans-show-up bowl to rock a nice 8-5 record.

Mills said...

yes, there was an "and then" in there.

isiah thomas said...

this needs to be brought up : Philip Rivers sucks.

blue said...

10 of the 11, in the big-10 are bowl eligible...that's kind of impressive.

isiah thomas said...

and why does the NCAA keep expanding the # of bowls but won't create a playoff?

playoff $$ > crapy bowl games $$$

blue said...

because if they didn't expand the # of bowl games, teams that finish 6-6 wouldn't get to go to any...and how is that fair?

(s)

Mills said...

10 of the 11, in the big-10 are bowl eligible...that's kind of impressive.
------
i don't know. i am big 10 guy, but all it says to me is that there is a lot of mediocrity and no great teams there. only a couple good ones.

but yeah, obviously they all had to win some pre-conference games to get enough for 6 wins, so not a bad effort.

Keith S said...

Iowa is what, 19-17 the last 3 years. That's not all injuries/suspensions/excuses. Maybe Ferentz should be getting a little more heat.

isiah thomas said...

They can keep the crappy bowls but damn a 4 team playoff is too hard to figure out?

blue said...

SEC has 10 of their 12 bowl eligible, and Vandy can be eligible if the beat either Tenn. or Wake Forest...

Keith S said...

I think since they expanded the schedule to 12 games, they should make "bowl eligible" be 7 wins.

El Padrino said...

Eli Manning >>>>>>>>>>>>Phillip Rivers

no arguments

none
zero
and I know Manning has not lived up to the #1 pick.....yet

blue said...

CFB is like NHL...everyone makes the playoffs.

isiah thomas said...

the last few seasons have exposed the Big 10 for what it is. Like weasel said a few good teams, a bunch of mediocre ones.

Big 10 teams are too slow to compete in todays CFB world.
