So I started a similar NFL thread that has been going for more then a year so why not make one for College talk. I have not really been into college football that much but my dad is a hardcore OU fan, especially since we live in Tulsa, OK. So I guess I will give it a shot and watch and pull for them.

I like that!

I used to do that, I had a ESPN sports pager and everything, betting on games, watched ALL the major sports religiously. That was about 10 years ago, now I have a wife and son.

Sunday is my day! ;)

I was pissed at SCIV before I read this and it made me rofl. Thanks for that Dev. Theft is the man though because he is concerned about being healthy with that Orange apparently:rolleyes:

Michigan has looked like ****, but they are slowly improving. The future looks like it could have a light, even if it is dull.

The rankings are out for this week. They're all screwed up after all of the crazy games last weekend. USC is somehow still in the top 10 even though they're 2-1 and have a loss to an unranked team they are somehow ranked higher than a 5-0 USF team that has a win over a top 15 team..... hmmm.

The BCS rankings are rediculous. USC should be out of the Top 10, Florida should've dropped between 15-20, and USF should be in the Top 10.

College really needs to do playoff brackets, not rankings. These rankings keep getting more and more ridiculous.

That's always been an issue in the College system. The BCS system can be BS at times. I think they're afraid to remove that system because they don't want to break away from tradition. Clearly it is a big need a teams sometimes don't get the correct amount of respect.

It's not even so much the BCS that needs to be changed as just the people that get to vote. We need to get some voters in there that aren't as dumb and biased as the ESPN announcers that are still judging teams based on how they did years ago. Like how did Pittsburg start off the season at number 25 when they had a losing record last year? When was the last time anyone saw a team go from a losing record to being worthy of top 25? That's not something that happens in one off season. But I agree, if they aren't going to at least change who gets to vote, they need to change to a playoff bracket.

Man, they made Georgia looks like absolute FOOLS.

There isn't a doubt in my mind that Alabama and Oklahoma are going to be playing in the National Championship game this year.

Both of them have tough schedules.

Alabama: 11/08 @ No. 3 LSU 11/29 No. 13 Auburn

Oklahoma: 10/11 No. 5 Texas 10/18 No. 16 Kansas 11/22 No. 7 Texas Tech 11/29 @ No. 21 Oklahoma State

If Bama survives the SEC and Oklahoma continues to dismantle teams they way they are both are undoubtedly the best in the Nation.

Texas however, has an excellent shot at beating the Sooner. But Mizzou's defense just can't keep up with Oklahoma if they play them in the Big 12 championship

Good team or not, I do not like Nick Saban. I think he choked in the pros and made a very chicken **** decision by leaving his team. I guess he really couldn't handle the pressure of NFL football. You can't run so much of a dictatorship like he runs in college.

I think he's a great coach, but at the first site of failure he can't handle the pressure. He lied big time when he was coach of the Dolphins which was my biggest gripe with him. All that said, he's not worse than Bobby Petrino though. Petrino shouldn't get the right to coach again as that was the most pathetic move a man can make as a coach: Ditch your struggling team mid-season for a college team.

Teams shouldn't have taken him because he lacks any long term committment. Nick Saban is kind of like that but Saban is much more respectable

I'm pretty sure that Alabama went 7-6 last year, Pitt went 5-7 and wasn't even bowl eligible, there's no reason that they should have been ranked to start the season. Rankings shouldn't be released at all until at least week six. Then we wouldn't have teams moving up because they beat an overranked team etc etc.
