    Re: New Poll Out - TT #2, Bama #1

    They are also ranked #2 by the AP.

    Tech's QB is currently considered the front runner for the Heisman race.

    All the news is quite favorable for Tech, for this week at least.

    They will have a let down Saturday against OSU, there is no doubt in my mind.

    I hope not. I'm still wanting an undefeated TT and a one loss Texas team going into bowl games.

    OSU is in a really good spot. If they beat TT and OU they should play for the NC

    Whether it's OU, TT, or OSU; one of them has to win out to get to the NC game.

    Re: New Poll Out - TT #2, Bama #1

    All I want for Christmas is not to see another Big 10 team in the NC game.

    Or, failing that, to see Penn State follow OSU's lead and be butchered by any of the following: (NC or BCS bowl. I don't care)

    Texas
    Texas Tech
    Oklahoma
    Oklahoma St.
    Alabama
    Florida
    Boise St. (this one would be especially funny)
    Utah (so would this one)
    USC

    Enough with the BS. Play a respectable OOC schedule, Big 10. OSU gets props for at least having the balls to put teams like Texas, USC, and Oklahoma on their schedules.

    Re: New Poll Out - TT #2, Bama #1

    I personally do not want to see TT in the championship game. I would rather ANY other big 12 team make it.

    Why so much hatred toward Penn State? I love Paterno, and hope he gets a shot at the title if they go undefeated. Penn State is the only big 10 team that has a shot at beating a good team from another conference in my opinion.

    I would love to see Tech win the remainder of their games. Call it the little guy/underdog syndrome.

    Re: New Poll Out - TT #2, Bama #1

    stupid Penn State sitting in there at #3 ... they really need to lose, preferably not to Iowa, but maybe to whoever they play after them.... or in the Big Ten championship game ... oh wait.

    Texas Tech is also ranked #2 where it counts, the BCS rankings.

    Isn't that three straight shutouts for them, too? Or am I remembering incorrectly?


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!
