Sorry. You'll get no sympathy from me (an OSU fan and alumnus).

I think of the pre-Tressel years and I can feel for you.

I bet LLoyd needs a hug too.

I'm starting to get a little concerned about Elrod:

That was right before the game?

Not from my ivory tower's observation deck. I really need South Carolina to be a good game so I can garner some humility.

That's some easy money!
I don't know a thing about Nebraska. You think they have a shot or just that USC doesn't cover?

How 'bout these:

Sooners -46
LSU -40.5

I think USC is going to do to Nebraska about what LSU did to V Tech. SC appears superior in every match up, especially O-Line vs D-Line. If the Huskers can't muster up a pass rush, Bootylicious will eat their backfield up.

It is in Lincoln so who knows? That's why they play the games as they say.

Wow, Utah State and Middle Tennessee are big dogs. If I were a betting man, I wouldn't touch those. Big dogs bite ya.

Speaking of pick 'ems, I'm looking at the OSU (-5) @ U Dub right now.

Check out Washington's first half schedule:

Aug. 31 at Syracuse W 42-12
Sept. 8 Boise State W 24-10 (BSU ranked 22 at time of game)
Sept. 15 Ohio State (10)
Sept. 22 at UCLA (11)
Sept. 29 USC (1)
Oct. 13 at Arizona State (35)
Oct. 20 Oregon (21)

Ohhhhh... I thought you were bucking the system and had Nebraska. I believe I get it now.

If Nebraska had issues with Wake Forest, USC is going to eat them alive.

^ How about the Bucks chances against Washington? I'm trying to figure that one out today. What say you?! Right now, I'm leaning toward taking the points.

I was thinking about it until your Tigers destroyed Tech! After watching the some of the Idaho game. All that SC monster needs is a little motivation. The who's #1 talk might of provided it. SC rolled their hats out against Idaho. It was surprising how undisciplined they were - the exact opposite of how LSU has looked.

Nebraska has good size but not much speed. USC has a load of both.

Bill Callahan has not impressed many Big 12 fans in big games. JMO, but when he knows his team is outmatched, he goes conservative to avoid an embarrassing loss.

Sam Keller needs to play better. Bill needs to coach with some heart. USC needs to play sloppy (turnovers, young receivers), looking for ESPN highlights rather than getting better. Zach Porter and Barry Turner (NU D-Line) need to play a huge game. NU has to bottle up the Trojan backs so they can tee off on Booty. Sedrick Ellis and Lawrence Jackson (USC D-Line) need to play a bad game. If Nebraska can't run against those two, their passing game will be lost.

If all five variables point toward the Big Red, then maybe...That's a-lot of variables.

Traveler 34, Lil' Red 7

That said, I'm going to have my corn hat on! The Big 12 needs Nebraska to return to the elite (should happen in a couple more years with their current recruiting), not to mention a big non-conference win.

If Nebraska plays up to their potential, then it could be a very good game.

Go Huskers!

At least not here!

I think the praise is much deserved as LSU has looked like a machine so far. Ever since the "split title" a few years back, I had it in for LSU. But after living in their state for a while, and enduring Katrina, those guys have my support (up to the point that they meet USC on the field )

Booty's crew didn't show much against Idaho. Hopefully that was purposeful. But based on what's actually happened on the field so far this year, your Sooners and those Tigers are far ahead.

I hope this weekend's game goes as you've outlined, another spanking of a touted ranked opponent from a "tough conference" on the road in a "tough place to play," a la Arkansas last year, or all the way back to Auburn in Carroll's infancy as USC coach. After seeing how lackadaisically they played that first game (and my lingering doubts about JDB), I wonder if it will.

I've got some friends from Notre Dame coming over this weekend for the Mich game... It'll be interesting to see what happens...

^ That should be one heck of a game to be at. It speaks for the tradition of both schools that this may well be the most hyped match-up ever between two 0-2 teams.

Edit/ I have some questions if any Michi fans would like to help. Does the Big House have any luxury suites? Is the seating all benches? Also, during the Oregon game, I noticed a slice of the crowd dressed in yellow er Maize (they weren't Ducks). Were they special donors or something?

Da Big House, Da Shoe, Camp Randall, Happy Valley are all on my must see a game there list before my time has passed.
post #117 of 628
I would love to go to Happy Valley and the Big House. Camp Randall is an insanely fun place to see a game, as is the Horseshoe - both of those were great fun. I also saw a game at Neyland Stadium (Univ of Tennessee) - that was quite an experience.

Actually, come to think of it, I have yet to go to a college stadium I did not enjoy

You can't go wrong at the Horseshoe...truly an amazing experience.

Sad News in the Dispatch

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Columbus, OH (AP) - A seven-year old boy was at the center of a Franklin County courtroom drama yesterday when he challenged a court ruling over who should have custody of him. The boy has a history of being beaten by his parents and the judge initially awarded custody to his aunt, in keeping with child custody law and regulation requiring that family unity be maintained to the highest degree possible.

The boy surprised the court when he proclaimed that his aunt beat him more than his parents and he adamantly refused to live with her. When the judge then suggested that he live with his grandparents, the boy cried and said that they also beat him. After considering the remainder of the immediate family and learning that domestic violence was apparently a way of life among them, the judge took the unprecedented step of allowing the boy to propose who should have custody of him.

After two recesses to check legal references and confer with the child welfare officials, the judge granted temporary custody to the University of Michigan Wolverines, whom the boy firmly believes are not capable of beating anyone.

this morning, the Daily Californian got a little scared at the thought of Michigan taking Tedford away.. the rumors are already flowing. on a somewhat related matter- a judge allowed the tree sitters to stay yesterday.
