Those Maryland Stadium fans sure looked like they were having a great time as UMCP went 2-0 with a 63-20 pasting of Syracuse, but maybe they were just covering for their sparseness and misery. (21)Syracuse won't be ranked, will Maryland?

0-1 Miami is favored by 5 vs 1-0 UNC @Chapel Hill at 2000. We'll see. Go UNC! Not on TV here, grrr.

@Maryland -2 (21)Syracuse. Wow, favored vs a ranked team, Go Terps!
Pool trivia:

Lots of games where we're evenly divided or I'm with the majority.
I picked N. IL +22 Utah, 15 out of 19 did not, my biggest oddball selection. Perhaps luckily, I can't watch it here.
Utah won by just 18.
:happy-cheerleaderkid:

One rookie to the pool picked Cincinnati > @(5)Ohio St. in an Offline game. OSU 42, CIN 0 :lol:

Michigan won in 2OT, nice, but Army beat the 22.5 point spread by 19.5, darn. Luckily, only 6 in the pool went with Army. I'm 3-2, tied for 2nd early at 1 point out of the lead.

Michigan got lucky - real lucky.

We have a big one later. They lead the series 17 - 14 - 6
I'm betting it will be 17 - 15 - 6 after tonight.

BillyP doesn't like BSU's blue field. Probably doesn't like Eastern Washington's, either, but there's no likelihood of EWU claiming a spot in the playoffs.
And they're not the only ones. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_c ... eld_colors

I'm thinking PMS Blue/Orange stripes would help the Tigers/damn Eagles/Plainsmen/PMS Blue stand out from the crowd.

We're all stuck with what our schools, coaches, students or alumni choose to do.

Unknown illegalities aside, I'm glad my school doesn't have to depend on cartoon colored fields, thunder sticks, bogus national championships or cupcake schedules.
I hope that my school's athletic teams are not involved with performance drugs and illegal payments.

Go:

(12)Texas A&M +17.5 @(1)Clemson, Go Aggies, destroy those pussies!
@Colorado +3.5 (25)Nebraska, knock those Cornholers out of the top 25.
N. Mex. St +55 @(2)Alabama :lol: 55!, Vegas is now 55.5. I'm glad they sorted that out.
Pool trivia:

Lots of games where we're evenly divided or I'm with the majority.
(12)Texas A&M +17.5 - 10 players, @(1)Clemson - 9 players.

10 sec. left, 4th & goal, TAMU TD, Clemson under performs, TAMU beats the spread by 3.5. :thumbup:
NE leads 17-0 until 1:42 left in the 3rd, crap. CO ties it twice, 24-24 & 31-31 with 0:46 left, OT, CO wins 34-31, wow!

Email from one of the pool admins:
Really, Yahoo!? You’re making us bet on a 55-point spread for Alabama and NM State? Sheesh. I gotta factor just how pathetic the Aggies are against how big of a dick Nick Saben is? Great.
:lol: No one ever went broke overestimating how big of a dick Nick Saban is, but Go Aggies!
AL did lead by 55, 62-10 final. :thumbup:

I'm 7-2, tied for 1st with 1 other. We only have 2 games different out of the last 11 - I have UCF and TX - but we could crash and burn together.

Go:

Another one of (billy.pilgrim's) favorites, (18)UCF -10 @Florida Atlantic
Tulane +18 @(10)Auburn
@(9)Texas +5.5 (6)LSU, maybe the best and most meaningful game on paper. Vegas is now 6.5, ut-oh.
(23)Stanford +1 @USC, Vegas is now 3, ut-oh. Not changing, though.
@(14)Washington -14 California
(18)UCF -10 @Florida Atlantic. All but 4 of us like UCF, sorry billy.pilgrim.
Tulane +18 @(10)Auburn. 13 of them like Auburn. Tulane is my 2nd biggest oddball selection.
UCF slayed, 27th straight regular season win!
Tulane push is the best I could have hoped for, congrats billy.pilgrim.
Texas - LSU lived up to the hype. LSU prevailed . . . by 1.5! :(

Can't take 1st :( , will be in a 3-way tie for 2nd - $11.08 - if Stanford, which is leading by 10 3, beats the spread.

UNC sharing 1st place in the Conference! (Hardly anybody has said ever)

So who are these people in the maroon and gold uniforms and what did they do with the FSU players?

USC thumped Stanford :( . Oh no, Cal beat 14-point favorite UW by a point!

I end Sat. with a push and then 3 straight losses, finishing 9-6-1 in a penniless tie for 3rd for the 2nd week in a row. However, I am in a 4-way tie for the season lead. My brother and SiL have exclusive hold on the season basement.

Ranking? Maybe not yet, maybe not ever after Appalachian St on Sat, Sep 21 ;) . Then again, the Tar Heels get to drub (1) Clemson on Sat, Sep 28 in Chapel Hill.

The good ones all got recruited by UCF :P .

(From article on teams off to poor starts...)

Miami fell to 0-2 Saturday night after losing 28-25 at North Carolina. Yeah, Florida — the team that beat Miami in Week 0 — is a borderline top-10 team and the Tar Heels are now 2-0 after beating South Carolina in Week 1. But losing to North Carolina when you have 14 days to prepare is almost inexcusable when you’re Miami.

You're missing my take on this.
Simply put - a team's schedule should reflect the goal of the program.
If they want to be considered in the rankings war, then they need to play at least 3 or 4 high ranked teams (6 or 7 would be better) - if they have enough in their conference, then that's all they need. If they have a nothing confrence, then they need to change to a better confrence or schedule top non-conference games.

Re bammer and NM. Bama has an easy schedule by SEC standards, but it's still tougher than anything ucf has ever faced.
Besides, it's a good payday for NM and a bunch of kids get to play against Alabama. They will always remember.
#1 Clemson's defeat of #16 Texas A&M was a quality win, unless Texas A&M falls further out of the rankings. Otherwise, #25 Virginia is the only other ranked ACC team and it's not even on Clemson's schedule.
Otoh, the Pussies did schedule Conference USA Charlotte and FCS Wofford. Even if undefeated, come Dec. should we make the case that Clemson no more deserves the playoffs than UCF does?
