    The job SOS has done at USC is amazing. A school who suffered for years trying to find their identity in a division who used to be known for the BIG 3 (UF, UGA and UT). I say alot is coaching but the HS talent coming from Georgia and in SC has helped alot.

    College football already has a playoff system, it's called the SEC championship game.

    Tell that to the computer ranking system versus the people polls. How many people thought Utah would lose to Pitt in the 2005 Fiesta Bowl or Alabama in the 2009 Sugar Bowl. What about Boise State against Oklahoma? TCU against Wisconsin? Point being, these 34th in points, 1st in points, 7th in points, etc is not an apples-to-apples comparison. They didn't play the same teams. That's why a playoff system is essential. Is like to see it be 8 teams. Playoffs answer the unknown variables.

    Additionally, most of the country thinks the SEC is full of themselves anyways. When Utah came out and destroyed Alabama in the Sugar Bowl by going up 21 points in the first 10 minutes it shut up all the people saying stuff like non SEC schools don't have the size or speed to compete with SEC programs. Boise State backed that up by beating Georgia a few years later. And, all of those teams did what they do without the depth bigger programs have. So, don't bother with that argument. What's the highest ranking any non BCS program has acheived after all the bowl games have been played? #2. What was their ranking before the bowl game? Below #4. Thus, under the upcoming playoff system they would not be included in a chance for the National Championship. I suggest adding one more week so that 8 teams can have a chance. Those teams would be the 6 BCS conference champs and 2 At Large. If those at large come from a non BCS or BCS conference I am fine with that, so long as it is fair. Case in point, current rules for a non BCS program to be eligible for a BCS bowl game are satisfactory.

    Yeah...it was a fun game for you.

    NC State is always dangerous at home...you'd think FSU would figure that out by now.

    It sure isn't an apples to apple comparison. Oregon has given up 120 points in their first 6 games and they haven't played ANYONE.

    They give you lots of easy touchdowns against garbage teams.

    Anybody going to get upset today?
    Maybe LSU beating South Carolina?
    Texas Tech beating WVU?

    Is Notre Dame really a top ten team?

    I don't see LSU beating SC. SC is just too strong.

    Texas Tech beats WVU...I know, someone will quote this one later :supergrin:

    Notre Dame...uh, no.

    It could happen. :whistling:

    I also think LSU may do well tonight, as much as I hate to say it.

    LSU can very well beat South Carolina, or any other team, when playing at home.

    Mizzou isn't doing too badly in the SEC. First year in and they have already matched Auburn's SEC record this season.

    I was at the game and mama got sick from some bad pregame food. Back home before halftime.

    LSU is absolutely dominating SC and losing by 4. They simply cannot get the ball in the end zone.

    Gators didn't look real sharp, but they were without some key players. Driskel did a nice job though.

    Vandy is a better team than one would think...They played a very close game with South Carolina.

    Florida handled a tough team very well.

    6-0, no rushing TDs given up all year, no defensive TDs given up in the last 4 games, in the top two in the country in scoring defense.

    LSU - SC is a fantastic game

    tigers would be playing perfect football if they could punch it into the end zone

    LSU has 326 yds of balanced offense and only 10 pts :faint:
