    Our Opponents

    Obviously a win today and we are into the top 25, but some games that might help or hurt us getting in.

    South Florida got pounded today 44-17 by the same Pitt team that lost to Iowa.

    A game that might hurt us, if UConn doesn't get it together, they are down 14 - 7 against W Michigan.

    Baylor and KState are toe to toe but I feel like Baylor is going to pull this one out. 21-19 at the half.

    A&M can only win in two quarters, that game is looking more winnable for us. A&M lost 42-38 and only scored 3 points in the second half to Arkansas' 25.

    Kansas is terrible and Tech isn't far behind. I'm guessing these two are going to sit at the bottom of the Big 12. Tech's bowl streak might just end this year. Tech won 45-34, they were down 3 at the half.

    Baylor is winning now but they've fumbled twice. I think K-State will win this one.

    We need to pass the ball on A&M. Their secondary blows big time. Judie is the only player worth a damn in the secondary. Their running game is good but somehow the second half goes to **** for them.

    Kansas and Tech both suck hard.

    Re: Our Opponents

    So UConn not doing well, down 17-7 at the half to W Michigan. W Michigan is a good MAC team. They lost by 3 points to Illinois last week and lost 34-10 to Michigan (who just beat Minnesota 58-0. Still they are a MAC team and a team that was in a BCS bowl last year has no business being down like that to a MAC team.

    I figured as much too. However, I got to thinking today, does it at all matter what happens to the top 25 today? And more specifically, teams that are low enough on the poll so as they could fall off with a loss.
    I was rooting like hell for Northwestern to beat Illinois and knock them out. But of course it didnt happen.
    Texas is #17. Do they fall all the way out with a loss?
    It looks to me like most of the teams in the lower rankings, 20-25(ish) are all playing cupcakes. So Im wondering, for us to be ranked if we beat Texas, does a team that won fall out?
    Tricky tricky.........
