I still think it's a close game.


Note: I may be a pessimistic Sooner fan.

Twitter is blowing up tonight over Graham. His (former) players are royally ticked off.


He was an assistant to Rodriguez at WVU. Learn from the master, eh?

I needed that Ohio win.  Entertaining game.

And now I'm even again.

Yeah in right behind you at 1-2. Tough to pick these games of teams we have rarely or never seen.

post #462 of 564

I had to pick Ohio with local product Tyler Tettleton. And I always suspected that Frank Solich was a pretty good coach. wink.gif


So far two good games and one blowout. Temple, who knew?


The games this next week aren't really that juicy; early bowls are much weaker this year than in previous years. Nevada/Southern Miss could be good, but I highly doubt I'll watch it.


Edit: Okay, so this is the CFB thread, but WOW. I'm glad to see KC get that win and I always liked Rome Crennel.

I almost picked LA-Lafayette because of the home field advantage, I should have gone with that instinct!
