    Upset weekend?

    We have already had Ole Miss go down this weekend and now no. 18 Florida State is down 14 to South Florida, no.22 North Carolina down 10 to Georgia tech, no.23 Michigan down 2 to Indiana and Cincinnati and LSU are up but by 4 and 2 repectively. Kansas is up 7 at half but haven't looked really good either

    And Michigan wins because the referees don't know the rules. Horrible call on that interception.

    Re: Upset weekend?

    IMO, neither of those were "big" upsets. GT lost to a very good Miami team, and UNC has looked pretty ****-poor so far, barely escaping their first game and, IIRC, being down last week, as well.

    USF has a good squad. I expected them to at least cover.

    IU over Michigan, however, would have been huge.

    I agreed with the GT game and FSU hasn't looked good much of the year but its still top 25 teams going down. Another reason not to have any polls till OCT.

    Anybody watching the MSU-LSU game? Miss St. blew two chances to win the game with the ball at the 3 inch line. I seriously had to look them up to see if McFarland was the new OC for them.

    Maybe that's why they always seem to finish last in that divison. A team gives them a chance and they seem like they don't want to convert

    How would the media accomplish their "self-importance" schtick if they had to follow that rule?

    Speaking of that, did anyone catch the guy from the Cleveland Plains-Dealer on Gameday? He's an AP voter and he has the audacity to fill out his ballot based on what actually has happened on the field, not what he thinks will happen in a couple of months. This past week, he had Florida #5 (because they haven't done anything too impressive yet), Cincinnati and Houston #3 & 4 (I can't remember the order). Fowler asked him if he really thought Houston would beat Florida on a neutral field. The guy told him he doesn't consider imaginary games.

    Not surprisingly, Herbstreit & Craig James basically scoffed at the guy. Herbstreit said he liked the idea, but then admitted that he thinks "potential" should enter into the polls.

    What annoys me most about this is the fact that it's not good enough for the self-important media to have a say in the sport (I know the AP is no longer part of the BCS, but it still has a huge influence in the other polls that are used, plus who gets on T.V., plus recruiting), but if you have a vote, you have to cast it in the way the establishment believes.

    Very true. Even thou the AP isn't in the BCS formula anymore they kind of help TV decide which games will be on TV. I actually would rather have the AP in the BCS and not have the Coaches poll simply because the coaches poll has the SID's mostly doing the rankings since the coaches can't watch many games anyway

    Re: Upset weekend?

    So, with a big win today, there's room for us in the Top 25?




    Part of this fanbase is like the parable of the blind men and the elephant.

    Who knew?
