Dumpster fire Saturday. Bunch of garbage games.

OSU is not very good and while MSU is completely one dimensional, their one dimension will exploit OSU's primary defensive hole, which is LB.

The game will be close, Bell will run all over OSU. I expect OSU to score a few points, but I think MSU wins a close one.

Complex 09-24-2012 01:06 AM

I'll watch the Miami game and maybe some of the Georgia/Tennessee game.

niel89 09-24-2012 01:15 AM

Stanford & the Ravens play at the same time. I have no idea what to watch.

tjsunstein 09-24-2012 01:23 AM

Mountaineers get a ranked team, Maryland was a bit of a test.

sbh15 09-24-2012 02:50 AM

gonna be at Baylor/WVU this weekend

jrdrylie 09-24-2012 09:15 AM

The three games that interest me most are:

1. West Virginia vs. Baylor- This is West Virginia's first Big XII game. Some people think they have a chance to win the league. I don't know about all that, but if they can look impressive against Baylor, they may become the league favorites.

2. Clemson vs. Boston College- This game will show us if this is the same old Clemson or not. They should handle BC, but they have the reputation of imploding. They need to rebound with a 30 point win.

3. UCF vs. Missouri- This is a huge game for one of my favorite teams. SEC school. At home. They looked okay in their other game against a Big-Six conference team, losing by 15 to Ohio State. But the Knights really need to win this game.

DG is going to murder you.

bearsfan_51 09-24-2012 11:39 AM

Weird that the Big Ten is so bad this year and yet the best games are from their conference this week.

Ohio State v. Michigan State and Wisconsin v. Nebraska should both be good games that will go a long way towards deciding the Big Ten champs.

I'm surprised another league didn't find at least one marquee game for that primetime slot. Alabama vs. Ole Miss? Really? I guess Texas v. Oklahoma State is alright.

Watch the Ravens and i'll give you a blow by blow on the Stanford/Husky game.

It's been about two years (At USC) since we've beaten anyone good in a regular season game. Not sure this week will be any differant.

Nebraska in the bowl game?

draftguru151 09-24-2012 07:50 PM

That's rude man!

Brent 09-24-2012 10:10 PM

I was worried about Arkansas beating us, but now I think A&M has a chance, especially since it's at the Hate Barn.

Bama schedule

Looking at bama's schedule, it looks like they will only have played three teams that will be ranked at the end of the season. That includes the champ game. That schedule is perfectly set for another NC.

The quality if teams in CFB pretty much blows this year.

Yeah it looked like a top 5 schedule prior to the season with Michigan and Arkansas both ranked in the top 10, but it certainly hurts the SOS with those two fizzling out.

Although there will probably be 4 teams on there ranked at the end of the season at least (Miss St., LSU, Texas A&M) and potentially UGA in the SEC title game.

People look at that Western Kentucky game as a cupcake, but the fact is, that team is as good or better than a number of teams from BCS conferences. Extremely well coached, physical, and a few underrated NFL prospects on both sides of the ball. Florida Atlantic played UGA tough for the first 20 minutes or so and were tied 14-14 with UGA in the 2nd quarter. Bama blew 'em out of the stadium by halftime.

I'd guarantee that there's several teams from BCS conferences that teams would rather play than UL-Monroe or W. Kentucky right now.

Florida St. will probably only have 3 teams on their schedule that are ranked by the end of the season, not including the ACC title game. Difference being their OOC schedule will hurt 'em with all those FCS teams. Bama only plays one FCS team (Western Carolina).

Oregon will only have 3 ranked teams on their schedule by the end of the season with a possibility of a 4th, not including the PAC title game. They also only have one FCS team on their schedule (Tennessee Tech).

Oregon will probably have the best SOS in the end.

JHL6719 09-24-2012 11:13 PM

Alabama's starting defense has shut out 5 of their last 6 opponents dating back to the Iron Bowl last year.

Bulldogs 09-25-2012 02:59 AM

Wrong thread whoops.

MassNole 09-25-2012 07:02 AM

I love the SOS argument when come November FSU's OOC will be better hthan Alabama or Oregon even with WV's cowardice.

FAU is worse than many FCS teams, they only beat Wagner 7-3. Oregon's OOC is just pathetic with no BCS opponents.

JoeJoeBrown 09-25-2012 08:28 AM

Note that I'm not making fun of the schedules. It's the nature of the BCS beast. It kind of sucks because we rarely see quality OOC matchups now.

The SEC and Pac 12 are much better than the ACC, your argument is invalid. Florida State's schedule is cake. Clemson and Florida. That's it.

Oregon's is USC and Stanford and that's it.
Alabama is LSU and SEC East champion and that's it.

VaTech on a Thursday night in Lane at least equals either Bama or Oregon's #3 game.
