Ouch, and so soon after the debacle in Philly! Every year I hope for 44 to rise up from the ashes. Soon, very soon. Hey, look how long the Packers sucked and they are back on top of things again. Dare to dream Orange!

Let's be honest.

Ha....no doubt however it could be worse - there is always the homegrown Idaho Humanitarian Bowl.

A shame we don't play Idaho any more.

BSU does have two BCS bowl wins in the past 7 years and with the playoff system - who knows? Gotta run the table every year. However - sucess has bred better recruiting and facilities although the typical BSU player is a blue collar gamer with a big chip on their shoulder.

Damn new football complex took away my old north end tailgate spot by the greenbelt and river. Its a different feel out here - we aint no SEC although I'd be happy if we could get some of their quality cheerleaders instead of our potato farmers daughters.

Even a blind squirrel will eventually find a nut.

I have a fond memory of watch a JAP in high heeled boots slip and turn herself into a human tobaggon during the winter of '81. It snows in Syracuse.

This is the sort of goofy shit that I love about college football and a reason I put up with the SB nation crappy formatting

FYI - This is SEC stuff so haters can move along.

"Top DE recruit commits to South Carolina because of classes where ‘you have to try to fail’

"...Yet, he also said that the school’s ability to create an easy road for its athletes as a key reason why he wanted to head to Columbia.

"The academic part, it's like you have to try to fail," Key told Palmetto Sports."

right on cue

ESPN says Ohio State is the preseason #1

I know it's just one of their writers but I expect that ESPN will continue to pump up Ohio State leading up to the start of the season. Much like they did last year with USC. It's all bullshit.

Well, they either pump up Notre Dame or Ohio State. Deal. With. It.

+1 Blah, blah blah. I'll be a whole lot more interested in Sept.

Meanwhile - you all have at it.

Both have HUGE cupcake schedules. They won't play an SEC team, and get the shit kicked out of them, before Xmas.

And post-season rankings are the only rankings that matter.

Speaking of Cupcakes: Georgia State, Chattanooga, and Colorado State. All at home. Lucky Alabama.

IOIYAASECT?

When was the last time Alabama played any fewer than 7 home games?

And, just for the record, any team wanting to pad it's record would be glad to play the likes of Ol Miss, Kentucky or Missouri.

Hopefully, with your full interest, your posts will be worth reading.

I dunno. When was the last time they went against a "media darling" a/k/a "toughest team in the entire universe" in the BCS Championship game and didn't totally fucking embarrass them?

1992? 2009? 2011? 2012? Nope.

When was the last time an SEC was in the championship game and lost, to a non-SEC team? Yeah, I can't remember either.
