1. Okie State
2. Michigan
3. Penn State
4. Northwestern
5. Minnesota
6. COVIDED
7. North Carolina
8. Southern Cal
9. West Virginia..... Texas, spelled another way, EHLINGER, the Mountaineers played well last week against K-State and a rookie QB, we’ll see how they do against this guy. Wouldn’t be a bit surprised if WVU wins this game by not beating themselves, as they’ve shown they are perfectly capable of doing, and keeping EHLINGER on the sidelines. :? :? :?
10. COVIDED
11. COVIDED
12. Florida
13. Pittsburgh....Pitt started strong with a rock solid defense, and then POOF it was gone.
14. UCLA
15. Clemson..... yep, I was kidding, serious CFP consideration for the Irish is at stake here.
16. Oregon
17. Tennessee..... just because I grew-up listening to John Ward call their games on the radio.
18. COVIDED
19. Oregon State
20. COVIDED

The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.

Coach passes on TWO chip shot field goals, and the Mountaineer lose by 4....... good grief. :roll: :roll: :roll:

Even if they had gotten just one field goal, it could have changed what they might have been able to do the rest of the way.

Well ... at least Holgorsen isn't doing any better.

Houston finally found some momentum; but still gave up stupid yards on defense, merely playing out of position.

florida, on-the-other-hand, is actually playing Defense. Georgia is not performing.
Swamp~rats just scored again with 11 seconds to go in the half.

The SEC East is slipping away from Smart ... ... ... ... ... remember that comparison to Richt?

Harbaugh is gonna hear about it after today, too. Indiana beat Penn State and Michigan in the same season for the first time
since ... They've had a Football Program.

The Hoosiers look interesting. They might be the second best team in the Big Ten. We can't rightly say it's Wisconsin. Because
they've had two consecutive non-resechedulable Cancellations.

And, I knew I should have put Liberty -v- Va Tech in these Predictions. :lol:

That was a really good pick you made in the Indiana game..... :wink:

In Brown’s post-game presser he said, those calls were on him, he made them because of yadda,yadda,yadda......

.......and I’m not going to say a darn word about THREE FREAKIN’ CALLS THAT WENT AGAINST THE MOUNTAINEERS, a touchdown called back, a no call on PI in the endzone AND a backwards pass recovered by WVU. :roll: :roll: :roll:

darn, I’m breaking out the 1792....... :lol: :lol: :lol:

There is no preconference background to base it on.
