    Re: Best college football season you've seen?

    This is the best one I can remember. Obviously, not for us, but as a whole its been great. There is not a single game that you can watch where the underdog doesn't have a chance. There have been some great things that have happened with all of the upsets. I don't know that a college football season has been more wide open. And that's exciting.

    Maybe NCAA should cut scholarships down to 70 and we might catch up.

    It certainly hasn't been one of the best for me... the only team I really care about is ISU. This may be one of the worst I can remember, I thought that last year was rock bottom.

    Re: Best college football season you've seen?

    wow the worst youve seen? how long have you been a clone? I'm 22 and remember much much much worse, think about the 90's we aould get demoralized by teams, lose 74-14 to nebraska and have to beg them to put their first stringers back in so we didn't feel so bad getting pounded by their 3rd string. UNI would beat us Wyoming we had no chance verse Iowa, we went 0-10-1(tying Wyoming i think?) in 94 i believe. we went 3-8 with arguably the best college running back ever. this team at least shows signs of life, we just can't stop killing our selves with turnovers which has nothing to do with coaching just execution. point is even if we go 1-11 it's been worse and we won't go 1-11 ever again under a chizik coached team. now for best football season... i haven't seen many i'm still a young buck but the USC-Texas rosebowl game was one of the best games I watched

    Re: Best college football season you've seen?

    When you look at the even competition and no one running away with it - yeah - it ranks up there pretty damn high. Lots of major upsets and we're not quite halfway through.

    Who knows what's gonna happen next...

    Re: Best college football season you've seen?

    Parity has made its way to college football finally. The Stanford win, the Appalican St. win, the UNI win, the Kent St. win, the Toledo win are all examples of how the little guys in college football have caught up with big boys.

    I watched that LSU vs. Fla game last night and that might have topped last years OSU vs. Michigan game as one of the best non-bowl game that I have ever seen (that didn't include ISU). I just didn't want it to end, it was great.

    USC getting beat last night was wonderful and their players crying about how Standford didn't deserve to be on the field with them and how great they were - Well you should have scored more points then. It couldn't have happened to a better program!!!!

    Re: Best college football season you've seen?

    Stanford qb hd one completed pass to his name before he subbed last night against USC.

    Wow, he did it against 8 sure picks on defense for USC who will go pro. The best college defense no doubt of all time.

    Gimme a break, Colin Cowherd.

    Since when have we been a "big boy" in college football? I must have been in a coma for a couple years and didn't know it.

    Re: Best college football season you've seen?

    I don't know if it's the best I've seen, but it's definitely the worst job the writers and coaches (which is really just someone in the Ath.Dept. who bases their picks mostly around the writers) have done with ranking teams in a long time.

    Seriously... can we PLEASE not release rankings until Oct. 1? It's silly.

    The other option is to just let Vegas do it. Anybody that knows anything about anything knows that NOBODY invests more time and energy into knowing more about the teams than the guys in Vegas. It pays their mortgages and builds their casinos.

    That is why when an unranked Illinois (favored by Vegas) beats a #5 Poll-ranked Wisconsin, I (and many others) am not surprised.

    I actually agree with this, although I do believe that Vegas ignores a lot of factors when it comes to college football (see ISU vs. Iowa 2007). Sports writers are nothing more than you or me sitting at home watching games. Let us vote for the Top 25!!!

    Re: Best college football season you've seen?

    As a fan of the game, this has been one of my favorite seasons ever. Not a game has been wasted, and each one has been entertaining.

    As a Cyclone fan, last year was worse. I knew it'd be an uphill climb, but nothing compares to the nose-dive my stomach took watching last season happen.

    Well, I think this points more to us sucking than the "little guys" coming of age. When the appalachians and uni's of the world start to CONSISTENTLY beat the michigans and USC's of the world I will start believing. Until then we are a bad team, with bad players, in a not great location, with a brand new coaching staff and empty cupboards thanks to Mac...I try not to read more into it than that.

    Whoa...I was there. He was good...best ever???? Are you seriously saying that if you had to start an all time football team you start him at RB???!!!! A lot of yards late in a lot of games that saw our offense on the field most of the game because our D couldn't stop the other teams. Don't get me wrong, he was great but come on...
