<p>....and another one bites the dust.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Sadly, my Boise State Broncos had the second string in at the end of the first quarter in their game against San Jose State Mission Choir.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>They will go to #2, but they need to start playing teams that at least wear football equipment and not gowns.</p>

<p>Georgia Tech won, 41-14 over Middle Tennessee State.  But they still do not have that killer instinct in them and make too many mistakes.  VT, Miami and UGA are still big games hanging out there and I'm not entirely confident GT will win any of those.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Sometime during the past week the MTSU QB, Dasher, made public comments that he was a much better QB than GT's Joshua Nesbitt (they played on opposing teams in high school and Dasher's team won).  The GT coaches showed his comments to the team during practices.  MTSU fans on their message board are lambasting Dasher over his comments.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>FSU is doing reasonably well this season.  NC State, who was looking strong early lost to UNC.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Georgia State won 20-17 in overtime over North Carolina Central.</p>

<p>My Gators had yet another stinker last night.  Losing to Alabama and LSU is one thing. But Mississippi State?  Wow, we're bad.  Add me to the list of Gator faithful who can't understand the playcalling.  The cries are getting quite loud for the Offensive Coordinator's head on a stick.  Some people are even starting to suggest that Urban Meyer needs to go.  I certainly wouldn't go that far.  (Two national championships in the last 4 years buys you more time than this).  Things will probably get worse before they get better.  At least we have a bye next week, and thus won't lose...</p>

<p>I went to the game last night in Tuscaloosa.  Crimson Tide looked OK in their bounce back game against the Ole Miss Rebel Alliance/Black Bears or whatever they're calling themselves this week. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>The most interesting event of the evening was when the section of Ole Miss fans launched into their Hoddy Toddy cheer, while Bama DB Dre Kirkpatrick was down on the field injured and being attended to by the training staff.  Much cursing and booing ensued and I'm sure there were fights.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Anyway, Tide gets the win and remains on a collision course for that late season Thursday night matchup against newcomer GA State.  I'll be there to see it in person. </p>

<p>Have mercy on us.  Please keep the score under 50 points.  If this game was a Saturday or even Friday night I would go, just to see the 'Bama stadium.     Wouldn't mind doing a run around the Alabama campus.  I have heard no GSU fan, including the football team members, express the idea we might beat Alabama.  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/blush.gif" style="width:18px;height:18px;" title=""> Unfortunately Thursday night is just not viable.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>On the other hand, Alabama is paying Georgia State enough to be the sacrificial lamb that the football program will be in the black this year.<br><br>

<p>We had a bye week so I've been working around the house and I watched the Ducks host an XC race.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Did I miss anything?  </p>

<p>Boy, this cold be quite the season - could have a carpload of undefeateds still left at the end of the year (Utah or TCU; Boise State; Michigan State; LSU or Auburn; Oregon; and Oklahoma, OK St or Mizzou) or even a scenario where we have undefeated non-BCS teams with a carpload of 1-loss majors.</p>

<p>I see the AP Poll kicked THE Ohio State U right out of the Top 10. I guess that's because it looks wrong to have them at 10 and the team that just beat them at 11.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Unbeaten Missouri and Oklahoma play this week, If Missouri should win that will really mix things up.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Then if unbeaten Oklahoma State wins over Nebraska there will need to be a spot for them.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>There are still TEN undefeated teams and it's time to separate the contenders from the pretenders.</p>

<p>There will be one less unbeaten team after this game this weekend:</p>
<p>No. 6 <a href="http://espn.go.com/college-football/team/_/id/99/lsu-tigers" target="_blank"><span style="color:#225FB2;">LSU</span></a> at No. 4 <a href="http://espn.go.com/college-football/team/_/id/2/auburn-tigers" target="_blank"><span style="color:#225FB2;">Auburn</span></a><br><br>

<p> </p>
<p>Next week we'll sort out the maximum 8 that are left.</p>

<p>My Spartans won again to go 7-0, the easy schedule has paid off, "we" are now ranked in the top 10. One ESPN analyst has MSU as high as 5. The key to get in the top rankings is to play easy opponents. See Boise State and TCU as well. Wisconsin knocking off Ohio State helps allot, since the win over Wisconsin 2 weeks ago looks that much better now.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I was worried about the Illinois game as it is the type of game MSU typically loses, right after two big wins against then #11 Wisconsin and in state rival Michigan. Illinois is better then people think and they stayed with the Spartans until the 3rd quarter. Next week is at Northwestern, the first game of the year outside the state of Michigan, a game MSU should win if they are indeed a big ten title contender, then the following week is at Iowa. Northwestern is 5-1 so I hope MSU does not "look ahead" to Iowa.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Being overrated is fun <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies//smile.gif"> !</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Seriously, I am happy of where my team is at, but I get that "we" really only have one win over a quality opponent, and that was at home. Michigan and Notre Dame are not what they used to be. If MSU runs the table however they do belong in the BCS discussions with other unbeatens or 1 loss teams. Today that is putting the cart before the horse.</p>

<p>The max is 6 undefeateds, based on the schedules (one each from the WAC, MWC, Big 12, Pac-10, Big 10 and SEC)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>It looks like both Oregon & Michigan State don't have much left on their schedules to boost their resume - I wonder if a 1-loss team from the SEC and/or Big 12 could still edge either of those schools out for a championship game (not to mention Boise St (WAC) or Utah/TCU (MWC) if they stay undefeated) </p>

Oh I'm pretty certain  that a one loss Alabama, Ohio State, or Oklahoma (or Auburn or LSU or Oregon, for that matter) will be considered far more worthy than an undefeated Boise State or TCU to play in the BCS Championship.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Boise or TCU will only be considered if all but one of the other team of those up there in the top 10 today have 2 losses.</p>

<p>I can see one scenario where a one-loss Big 12 team might not edge out the non-BCS schools (OK beats Mizzou this week but then loses to OK State (who stays undefeated) in the last game of the regular season, then Mizzou beats OK State in the conference championship.)  Of course, if a weaker SEC East rep (let's just say South Carolina) upsets the SEC West rep in the championship game, that could screw things up too for the SEC.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>But I guess we'll see - plenty of games to play still.  If the BCS is the way its going to be rather than a playoff system, I might as well hope for armageddon and hope it comes to fruition.<br>

<p>If Boise State/TCU are going to be ranked then they should be treated just like anyone else. The fact they play in the conferences they do should have no bearing. If it's going to be an issue then rank those schools in some other rankings. If Boise State/TCU are going to be in anything that includes Oklahoma, Ohio State, USC, Florida etc etc etc then go all the way with it. Don't half ass things, like they do now. What if the Boise State/TCU took the...."keep your BCS rankings...not interested"....approach? A boycott of bowl games by non BCS schools...hmmmmm?</p>

<p>As long as we have the current method of selecting the NCAA championship I'll have to agree with Brutal on this one.  While I certainly don't think Boise State would be undefeated if they were in the SEC or Big 10, if they finish undefeated in their conference and Alabama, Ohio State and/or Oklahoma have only one loss, one of them should be playing Boise State for the national championship even if the other teams might be stronger teams.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Now, if we had a playoff system...</p>

Absolutely right, but the boycott idea wouldn't fly because schools get too much $$$ even if they are playing in something as pointless as the Toilet Bowl.</p>
