Winners, Losers, and Lucky SOBs

Its time for a recap of this weekend's college football action.

Winners:

Alabama - As I say this I am trying to keep from vomiting, but Alabama looks like the best team in the nation.   They made a good offense in Arkansas look average.  This stinks for me, cause I know way too many obnoxious Tide fans that I have to see way too often.  Come on somebody, beat these guys, please!

Texas - Sure they played UTEP, but they took care of bid-ness.  Like USC, they always seem to find a way to blow a game though, and Oklahoma and Okie St. are still on the schedule.

Cincinnati - They beat Goliath-killer Fresno State, something Wisconsin couldn't do a few years back.  It's too bad college teams can't make trades, because I would like to offer Jonathan Crompton, Nick Stephens, and two players to be named later for Tony Pike.  Imagine what UT could do with Pike, like probably cover the spread against Ohio.

TCU - Impressive beating Clemson in Death Valley.  Too bad it wasn't over a Fulmer-led Clemson team, cause that would have been AWESOME!

Losers:

Miami - When everyone on the ESPN Gameday panel picks you to win, be afraid.  So much for the undefeated season and a Heisman for Harris. . .darn, I hate that.  For the record, I called this one, ask the guys in my confidence pool if you don't believe me.

Cal - I know it was on the road and I know it was against Oregon, but seriously Cal?  Again?  Is it some No-Cal liberal thing that you have to spread the wealth and let an inferior opponent get a big win each year?   That's very bleeding heart of you.

Penn State - Doh!  Okay, you got beat by an Iowa team that looks pretty good, but that was a little embarrassing after being up 10 to 0.

Florida State - Wait, Joe Pa's team and Bobby's team lost at home to underdogs?  I'm sensing a theme here.

Urban Meyer - Your team won, but unlike last week, you didn't play conservative (wink, wink) when you had the game in hand.  Up 34 to 7, Tebow drops back to pass, and this was the result. . .

Tennessee Fans - Come on, did we really feel good about that win over Ohio?  Especially after watching what happens when we try to "open up the offense."  I'm all for shuttin' er down the rest of the way and takin' our chances.  Unfortunately, this is what we're going to have to watch the rest of the year.  But this is a three year plan, so years one and two can be rocky, year three has to be MUCH improved.

Washington - Are they the Chumbawamba of this college football season?  I think so.  Not in that they get knocked down and get up again, but in the fact that like Washington these guys had a big hit once and now you're like, huh?  Who's the heck is that?

Lucky S.O.B.s

Notre Dame - For the second week in a row, Charlie Weis and the Irish pull a win from their backsides.  They're lucky they've got the Big Guy on their side (no not Weis, THE Big Guy) or they would be 1-3 and convening the search committee.

Michigan - Okay, two of my least favorite teams (see also above) pulled wins out this week.  Michigan almost blew one to IU in the Big House and I for one would have loved to see that.  Indiana got sk-rewed on that interception call.

LSU - Third and Chavis should have resulted in a loss, but MSU couldn't get into the endzone when it mattered.

Me - As always, the luckiest SOB of them all.  A great wife, the smartest kids in the world, great friends and a good job.  All that and I feel the need to blog. . .go figure.
