    Neither should have gotten a vote. And what jackwagon put FSU #1 on their poll?

    Since Northern IL got votes and eiu did not, does that mean the huskies beat the hoks in Chicago? I can hope, right?

    That's impossible. The hoks are the biggest and bestest team in the nation. But if they do lose, it was obviously the other team's superbowl. Am I right Ellen, Clark, Gonzo, and other hok trolls?


    ďI told you, I donít care if youíre black or white. I donít care if youíre rich or poor. I donít care where you come from, whether itís Texas, Florida, California, or right here in the state of Iowa, I donít care about any of thatÖ But what I did care about is moving forward from that day on, that we were one team." -Paul Rhoads

    It's only a superbowl if you schedule a flyover for it...oh wait...didn't they schedule one for 'little brother' coming to town this year? But that game doesn't matter...

    Back on topic - I don't see how USC isn't #1 now with Silas Redd going there...going to be a tough team to beat.

    FSU could be really good, this year. They're loaded with talent on defense, especially along the line. Plus, their schedule shakes out really nicely. They catch Clemson and Florida at home. The big test will be at Blacksburg. If they can survive that, they could easily be a 10 win team.
