    I was NOT AT ALL impressed with Oregon. Watching the game I got the sense that any team with a decent defense would be able to stop them.

    K State didn't impress me either, I don't understand how the talking heads could say both teams would handle ND easily. ND's defense is sick!

    I also don't understand how they would be a 10 point dog against Bama, is Bama THAT good? I haven't seen them play.

    Bama is really, really good. I expect Bama to handle ND in the Championship game.

    Alabama has to get by Georgia first and the SEC Championship game is played in the Georgia Dome if I'm not mistaken.

    The creative ways that Cade Foster tries to make us lose never cease to amaze me.

    Well, K-State did all they needed to... except beat Baylor. Most schools would kill for an 11-2 season with a BCS bowl. The disappointment, however, is fervent in Manhattan.

    Looks like ND/'Bama for the NCS. KSU/Oregon in the Fiesta. Oklahoma/Florida in the Sugar. Not a fan of either of the teams playing for the NCS... Sorry, DFH!!!! Will root for it to end in a tie. Don't like the chances of KSU against the Ducks. The Cats defense will need to play much better than they have against a number of teams, this year, or Oregon will win in a blowout.

    Best news of yesterday was seeing Nebraska get blown out. The "Hucksters" deserve every beat down they get.

    Against quality top teams (not counting Miss State). Clemson and Louisville deserved their spots and were matched up against fairly equal opponents. Florida showed their mediocre offense and their offensive turnovers put their defense in a bind against a great Louisville offense.

    LSU game was amazing and Clemson managed to come out on top.

    Only disappointing game played so far is Florida. (For me) I didn't expect Mississippi State to do much considering how their season ended up after starting out 5-0.

    Ole Miss game will be a toss up. The National Championship will go Bama's way I believe. Not just my bias speaking. I truly believe Notre Dame's offense isn't ready for our Defensive line and Linebackers. Their only chance is to look at LSU, Texas A&M and Georgia QBs and exploit our CBs. I don't think Notre Dame has the QB that those three schools do to make it happen.

    We will see soon though.

    By the way your numbers are wrong:

    Wins:
    Vanderbilt
    South Carolina
    Georgia

    Losses:
    Mississippi State
    LSU
    Florida

    When you can run the ball play-action comes easy.

    Not if there is a 1 yard left and right rule, because he was on top of him. Regardless, 14-0. Not sure how they expect to win when they can't stop Lacey.

    That fair catch signal went up late!

    Also, that 3rd down play where ND was OB should have been a catch.
