    They might get in this year. Florida isn't beating Alabama and neither is anyone else. Ohio State might be done for the year. A&M gets by Auburn they might be home free.

    Much rather see Cinci in this than aggy

    Yeah, if aggy starts to gain national credibility, our recruiting is going to sink even lower.

    I'm hoping Auburn, Tennessee, or Ole Miss can stop them. That said, they're starting to win with defense and a ground game and that combination is a winner.

    An undefeated Cincy or BYU would be tough to keep out over a one-loss aTm. Each year, there is much discussion about a non-power 5 team finally making it. This could be the year.

    Cincy? Maybe with a sunjective schedule

    BYU? That schedule would embarrass Throckmorton HS. Not even the DII playoffs will let them in. Createteh Mormon Bowl is they can find a good ninth grade team to play.

    Hard to blame the G5 teams for a year in which it was even harder for them to find a half-decent P5 opponent than usual.

    Not this year. aggy had two losses baked into their schedule before the season was chopped up. Alabama was a loss, but LSU was the second loss that has now not happened. Alabama will roll them again if they meet in the semi's (1 v 4).

    Excuse the hell out me, and I'm all for Title IX, but all the fuss over Sarah Fuller is a bit much. It was a publicity stunt.

    Well, fortunately for Colt, if things end up going South, at least Giants fans are sympathetic, understanding, and classy.

    USAFA won at Utah State, 35-7. Sounds like it was a good tune-up before the Army game. Maybe the Falcons have a real chance to win the C-i-C Trophy.

    I heard that the DoD had agreed to award the C-i-C to the Merchant Marine Academy since they beat the Coast Guard Academy. It is 2020after all!

    There were actually back-to-back safeties but then the App St kicker missed the FG

    And Napier’s stock drops 3 points. At least the Cajuns ended up with the W despite this call.

    12/5

    Okla State v. TCU -- a battle of two of the better coaches in these parts. The game is in Ft Worth, but I think that the Mullet's D is likely to stifle the Frogs' O today.
    [​IMG]

    Baylor v. OU -- OU all day on this one.

    W Va v. ISU -- ISU methodically beats down the Mountaineers.

    Bama v. LSU -- a big time butt whoopin is in store for the Tigers. The Tide gets revenge. Listen for some incomprehensible excuses in the post game interview.

    BYU v. Coastal Carolina -- a battle of undefeated teams. If BYU wins, that would be two wins against teams ranked at the time of the game. Cougars are building their resume for the playoff picks.

    Irish v. Orangemen -- The Catholics get some revenge for Bloody Sunday and the Battle of the Boyne.

    aTm v Auburn -- Auburn's tough D will test aTm's ability to do something other than run the ball. Auburn will likely struggle to score much on this very good aggie D.

    aOSU v Mich St -- Bucks wear them down as the game goes on. The pads will be a poppin' in a hard-hitting Big 10 bloodbath.

    North Carolina v Directional Carolina -- Mack chalks up an easy W. I'm not sure what a "Catamount" is, but it probably looks something like this:


    Florida v Tennessee - Vols stand little chance against Trask and Florida's O.

    Indiana v. Wisconsin -- a good looking showdown between the 2nd and 3rd best teams in the Big 10. Indiana looks to unseat Wisconsin from the almost-as-good-as-the-Buckeyes position up North.

    Iowa v. Illinois -- I guarantee you that the U of I will win (and lose).

    Oregon v California -- Ducks bounce back and light up the scoreboard.

    WSU v USC -- #20 3-0 USC keeps notching Ws and moving back into the relevance universe. Bru McCoy kicks his dog after the game.

    Clemson v Va Tech -- With Lawrence at the Tigers' helm, the Hokies don't stand a chance.

    Tulsa v Navy -- Navy puts up a surprising fight and possibly pulls an upset.

    Miami v Duke -- How did we ever let this Manny __iaz guy go ... ????? :smile1:

    Nebraska at Purdue — these are two pretty bad teams. Purdue has a decent ground game, so Nebraska had better learn to tackle. Still, I think the Huskers will pull it off for the W today.

    Arkansas at Missouri — two recent-years laggards that are now both on the uprise. If I root for the pigs today, can I still be a Horn fan?

    Kansas v Texas Tech — somebody has to get the W. It should be the Raiders.

    Penn St v Rutgers - Big 10 basement dwellers rumble in the New Jersey gutters. It’s a pretty sad and pathetic state of affairs up there with these two. I hope the Knights win.

    Stanford v Washington — the Dogs’ air game for the win.

    TCU 71 yard TD pass to take the lead.
    KU missed a field goal, Tech likely to win.

    Can’t get much lower. We basically got our worst offer at every position.

    Tipped pass and a catch by Okla St just past midfield. It’s desperation time for the pokes. 12 seconds left. Clock stopped. TCU 29-22.

    Frogs win!
