    Struggles of other conferences

    Watching the games today it is surprising to me how much some of these top teams in the big10 and SEC are struggling to win games that they shouldn't.

    Michigan vs AF
    Wisconsin losing to OSU
    Nebraska losing to UCLA

    Georgia struggling with Mizzourah
    FlorIda needing a comeback to down aggie
    Arkansas getting a tough game from ULL

    I know the Big10 isn't good but I thought they'd have a couple decent tens outside of tOSU. I'm more surprised with the two top ten SEC teams having trouble (I know one is a conference opponent). Is it possible that the Big12 will end up to be the best conference when it is all said and ?

    This is the second time I've seen this on the board. Am I missing something because it seems like Nebraska-UCLA is still going on right now.

    B1G had a rough day today. Nebraska in a dogfight. Wisconsin could have lost to UNI. Amazing what losing a QB good enough to start as a rookie in the pros does to your team.

    A few of these games are early season games on the road (Wisky, Nebraska, Mizzou) and those are never easy, especially against other BCS level schools.

    Missouri v Georgia and Florida v aTm are both conference games so I discount those. Arkansas going to OT vs LA-Monroe is surprising and I hope they lose.

    Nebraska vs UCLA is actually what I expected. Close game. Neither team really impressing me. Wisconsin losing to Oregon State was a pleasant surprise. And Michigan already showed they were overrated coming into the season, but at least they got the win.

    R-Kansas just lost to Louisiana-Monroe on a 4th down gamble by ULM. Unbelievable.

    Wow Arkansas just lost a shocker to UL-Monroe from the Sun Belt. They'll make an excuse that Arkansas' QB was injured, but it's still something.

    Its the loss of the Olinemen, not Wilson, that is killing them. They had no push in either game.

    I don't think the #8 team in the country can use the excuse that QB1 going down can justify losing to a Sun Belt team.

    What a day!!! Arkansas goes down. Wisconsin goes down.

    I am a huge UCLA fan tonight!

    Teams that I just don't care for are falling all over the place.

    Esp when they give up ~500 yards to the ULM QB
