I'm no Bama fan but I believe until someone beats the champion they still hold the crown. I'm watching the duck/bruin game hoping for a upset right now lol

#102 Edited by 36Ounces (2035 posts) -

If Bama, Oregon an FSU go undefeated Noles will get fucked. Shame there's no playoff this year. Both still got some tough games left.

#103 Edited by GamerForca (7034 posts) -

Might be a year for a split champion. Btw, I agree with you guys about Bowden.

Anyway, as I've been telling folks for a few weeks, Mizzou is/was overrated. They just took advantage of badly injured Georgia/Florida teams. Regardless, Mizzou/SC was a lot of fun.

#104 Posted by Seabas989 (9651 posts) -

Maryland stinks. Then again we were never gonna beat Clemson this year.

Laces out... The spirit of Ray Finkle lives in Mizzou.

Feels good to be undefeated and in 1st place in Big 12. TCU got gaped.

Tried to tell you guys UCLA wasn't real. They got gaped as well.

I honestly think FSU goes in over Oregon if it happens. They have a much harder schedule.

#107 Posted by yokofox33 (28403 posts) -

I'm not gonna worry about it. FSU just needs to take care of business and not worry about the standings.

Of course if Stanford beats Oregon then suddenly it doesn't matter anymore.

#111 Posted by 36Ounces (2035 posts) -

The whole problem with FSU/Oregon is the preseason polls. Since Oregon was higher and hasn't lost, voters say well shit we had Oregon top 3 preseason so why move Noles higher when the Ducks are unbeaten. Saw the same bullshit with Auburn I think in 04. Hopefully it will sort itself out. Fuck the canes!

Ay Gamerforca ready for Cripple bowl 13? Dawgs & Gators still have an outside shot of winnin the East and gettin dick slapped by Bama. Will be another sloppy ass game I think.

Ducks deserve the second spot. That's all.

Currently, I agree. And they'll remain there if they win out. They'll have beaten #12, #16, and #5. FSU will potentially have an impressive resume with wins over Clemson and Miami (twice).

FSU's only hope I think is if Oregon loses or if they just absolutely mop the floor with Miami twice.

Ya, if Ducks win out there is no way they shouldn't be in the BCS game.

I also don't think Miami is really that high, but it doesn't matter. FSU gonna win out.

#115 Edited by 36Ounces (2035 posts) -

I'm hopin Miami loses next week then beats Va Tech and wins out. With VT losin to Duke don't want them in the ACC c'ship game. Big Cardinal fan when they play Oregon.

#116 Edited by yokofox33 (28403 posts) -

Oh yeah, Miami is at best a top-15 team, but is #7 by default really. Still, the BCS thinks they are #7 so it's potentially a "big" win for FSU.

Oregon's best chance at a loss is next week at Stanford. I'm just praying FSU finally takes care of business this year regardless of what happens with Alabama/Oregon. The amount of anxiety I have is ridiculous. My brain tells me FSU is gonna smack UM, but I'm still super nervous about it. "Anything can happen."

I hear ya. I can't believe I was rooting for the canes Saturday lol. That scenario for the ACC works for me. Looks like the FSU/MIAMI game is the big game this weekend. But Thursday November 7th looks HUGE with TWO games having national championship implications ! Oklahoma/Baylor, Oregon/Stanford.

#120 Edited by GamerForca (7034 posts) -

I can't keep all these Florida guys straight either. So, we've established that yoko likes the Gators. Shiro is a fan of two teams, including a mid-major program. I believe those two teams are Miami and Stetson. nolzwin seems to be fairly self-explanatory, but I think that's just a front to keep us from knowing his real favorite team: Miami.

Tell me if I'm wrong.

Agree on the preseason poll thing. Polls should not come out till week 5 or 6. Plus with Oregon, they been knocking on the door for the last 4 years. People want to see them get another crack at it. This the perfect year for a playoff man.

I'm not sure I even want to see this UGA team play Bama. We would've lost with everyone healthy, though maybe we could've scored enough on them to make it a somewhat respectable game. Now, I seriously think Bama would win by 50, even with Gurley back. I'd rather watch Mizzou get stomped.

The Cripple Bowl should be hilarious, if nothing else. Might be a 13-10 type of game.

Ok that is hilarious. Cane fans/players are some of the most obnoxious people ( generally). It still pisses me off the crack head Irving is in the HOF. But anyway I've been a Nole fan before Deion was a Nole. When Dieon, Warrick dunn, Charlie Ward (one of my all time fav Noles) got the ball rolling in the late eighties early nineties. I watched the first Nole championship against Nebraska come down to a last second field goal. speaking of field goals I suffered through every wide left, right, left against the Canes. I hated Steve Spurrier or Darth Visor as I used to call him with his one liners like "free shoes university" . But actually missed him when he left. Watched the Choke At Doak , one of the greatest comebacks in football history. I have actually been to Doak several times been to Tennessee street had adult beverages at Bullwinkles. was at Bobbies last home game when he planted the spear and we wore those black jerseys against Maryland. Speaking of planted the Sod cemetery at Doak is a pretty cool tradition. I could go on but my point is the thought of wearing green/orange or blue/orange is sickening. don't get me wrong some of my best friends are gators and canes but that ain't me.

#126 Edited by 36Ounces (2035 posts) -

@nolzwin: I was only 7 when FSU won it in 93 so don't remember much from that season. My fav Noles all time that I remember are Warrick Dunn, Peter Warrick, Andre Wadsworth an Peter Boulware. Still got the Sports Illustrated mag from 99 when Noles beat VT & Vick.

#127 Edited by Braun_Roid_Rage (630 posts) -

BUs season really starts next Thursday with OU coming to Waco. Win or lose about time we play somebody, shit.

Aw, I was expecting a more hilarious comment, Shiro. I am highly disappointed. nolzwin, you are the winner, as you actually bothered to write an entire paragraph responding to me. I almost decided to give the trophy to yoko for the "I will suffocate you in your sleep" line, but he had to ruin it by saying that he was just joking. :(

Yea bro, I wouldn't want to see this Dawg team play Bama either. Just hope they can beat the Gaytors. Fuckin Cripple bowl haha. No guarantee Tide will even be in SEC title game the way Auburn playin right now.

@GamerForca:

You sound tired of Richt. I always considered him a good coach. if it's any consolation I thought Richt was gonna be FSU's next head coach after Bobby. But I guess he got tired of waiting him out.

Lol, how would that console me exactly? :p

Honestly, he was pretty good in Georgia's early years. I defended him like crazy until the 6-7 season. If they hadn't hired Richt, they probably would've gotten another Ray Goff. I recognize that it could've been a lot worse. UGA sucks at hiring coaches, in all sports.

I originally considered typing "Die in a fire please". But decided not to. Stetson being mentioned actually gave me a laugh.

To be expected, Lane is awful.

#137 Edited by GamerForca (7034 posts) -

Excellent opening drive by Georgia. Hopefully Gurley stays healthy throughout the game; he's that much of a difference-maker. And Florida does not lead the all-time series. Stupid CBS. You'd think that Gary and Verne would know that, having commentated the game for so many years, but I guess not.

Yeah, UGA beats both Vandy and Mizzou with a healthy Gurley... period. Please Richt, don't let off the gas and let Florida back in this. 14 points is NOT a safe lead.

Georgia wins 23-20. That game... turned around quickly. Geez... 3 straight over Florida is nice though. And what was the final count on personal fouls called during that game? 20?

#138 Posted by Chutebox (35683 posts) -

Miami actually battling, I'm surprised. Hopefully it's a good game.

#139 Posted by Seabas989 (9651 posts) -

I wish the playoff system was this season.

#140 Posted by Innovazero2000 (3117 posts) -

I do too, props to FSU but Miami didn't even belong in the top 15 and was vastly overrated.

#141 Posted by Innovazero2000 (3117 posts) -

The top four are clearly the top 4. Alabama vs OSU and FSU vs Oregon would be really fun to watch. Baylor and a 1 loss Stanford are the only ones in my opinion that could shove their was way into the convo.

#142 Edited by 36Ounces (2035 posts) -

Great win for the Dawgs even though they tried to blow it. Havin Gurley an Bennett back was huge. Feels so good beatin Fla an three str8 now yessirr. Yea G-forca the personal fouls were crazy but I like it. Great rivalry, and UGA won't miss Gurley much next week.

Noles were dominant again specially in the 2nd half. Freeman owns. Fuck Miami, clearly some pretenders.

Just got back from Tally. Was really nostalgic driving down those old roads and recognizing familiar landmarks.

Game was amazing and so glad we sent those cocky UM dooks back home. Amazing how nasty those pricks are, considering 95% of them went to FIU or Dade College. FSU still has business left though. Can't take your foot off the accelerator.

Master, Oregon is one spot ahead of OSU based on rankings and having a better opt. Win-loss then them or Alabama. FSUs only legit win is Clemson, Miami didn't even belong in the top 15.
