    Your point might work for the guy from Seattle, but I strongly doubt that anyone from North Carolina believes Ohio State is the best in the country. State very, very nearly won that game, and I doubt any Wolfpack fans would be afraid of a rematch.

    Heck, I'm a Michigan alum and if I'd have had a vote, it would have gone to Oklahoma.

    Do you have a better explaination? I was reaching for anything that would explain it.

    Certainly it wasn't the guy from Dayton cause clearly he knows that there are two teams closer to Dayton that are better than Ohio State is this year - possibly even three.

    When Ohio State loses next week and finally ends their oh-so-impressive "We'll play anyone, anytime (as long as they aren't that good or else we can only play them at home" schedule, you'll see what I mean.

    Yep. Doesn't look good for us this year. Too many youngsters on our team. I sure hope we give it a good run, though...

    Maybe we should schedule some real competition. We tried, but then Auburn came out and laid an egg. You guys sure got lucky in that department. I mean, how could anyone know that San Diego State would look that good playing against the defending National Champions. And NC State? They sure looked like world-beaters giving Ohio State a run like that.

    The trick when playing cupcakes like Hawaii seems to be running up the score. 52-7 in the third wasn't enough. Coach Chow should be ashamed of himself; we could have hit 70 if he had left the first or second string in there. But hey, there's always next year.

    it sure as hell wasn't the guy from cleveland, the plain-dealer has a very big and public hate for ohio state...their voter used to publish his top 25 last year and he never had ohio state in his top five until after the michigan game. it wasn't him.

    NC State are in the ACC. What a non-football conference! Who do Ohio State play next? Whoever it is, I hope they hand OSU's asses to them. Can't stand the Buckeyes.

    why not USC? They're going to be a good team.

    anybody else notice ND is no longer a top 25 team. (Well, they never really were.). But how the hell is Purdue 25th.

    ane the Irish still have to play USC FSU and Pitt :eek:.

    How fitting is this: I have ESPN on, they did their little Friday Tailgate previews, Adrian Karsten's talking about taking the T, and what's in the background:

    Mary Ann's! EVERY freaking time I've ever gone in there, someone's gotten themselves into either a brawl or some other serious shit. Fortunately never me.

    I didn't go to BC but have followed BC football since I was a kid, mostly thanks to Flutie. It would be very fitting to see a huge upset tomorrow and tell the departing Canes to p*#*#*#*# off.

    11 hours 45 minutes.

    It's funny, the last time I attended a BC game and see them play a ranked undefeated team at Alumni Stadium was the against the Mountaineers the day after Thanksgiving the week after Gordon's kick.

    I have forever branded it "The Fumbling Game"

    Ahhh, what I would give to attend a game at the Heights when an undefeated rolls into town.

    BTW, Jeff, I do confess that I have NEVER stepped into MA's. I am so proud of that.

    Eagle's Deli however, I have been to numerous times. My stomach keeps asking me why I go there.

    If any of you can, catch ESPN Classic at 10am, they're showing another BC v. Miami game, I believe it's the one from 1999. Yesterday, they showed the bizarre 2001 game.

    In all seriousness you should be. That place is a walking advertisement for trouble, keeps several dozens of cops and lawyers on payrolls (a good thing job-wise) by itself.

    9 hours, 45 minutes to go.
