    Watched some fantastic games today, but the Bama game wasn't one of them. They lead 28-0 at the half. Bama has a lot of improvement to make quick. Defense is sloppy.

    Yep wore my Orange to work yesterday. Watched the second half tonight after we got home. Recorded it all on DVR. You guys wore us out. Very good offense you all have. I wouldn't mind seeing your QB win Heisman this year. Very good story. Lots of weapons on offense to pick from to Your running game was much better than I expected. It should give a nice leg up in the Big 12.

    UT ain't very good right now. Lots of young players starting to play. I sure hope November looks a lot better than tonight did. Even tonight looked somewhat better than last year.

    What was it? 51/14... Sometimes I feel bad for the players on teams we beat... I remember about 40 years ago at the old Legion Field in B'ham. The Bear was still coaching. I was there in the student section. I think we played Baylor that night. Bama scored 24 points in the first 2min and 17 seconds of the game (something like that, I don't remember exactly). Anyway, the student section started singing the "Hey, Hey, Hey, Goodbye" song. I remember looking at the baylor bench, they were completely dejected and we hadn't even gotten to the 3 minute mark of the 1st quarter. It didn't get any better for them after that.

    Those were the days when you could dress as many players as you had, we had over 110 dressed that night... an army! They might have had 30 plus... I felt bad for them...

    The Bear had class... he would never run up a score on anyone. He would play every player he had, even the idiots! The second half was ugly for us, freshmen playing. We won by less than 20 points... The Bear had class, he didn't coach to humiliate young men, he was there to teach.

    I still enjoyed the party in the student section though! ;)

    We'll see. Things have a way of happening and then there you are at the bottom lol
    You never know. I am hoping they go far this year

    I enjoy college football but I'm not one of those "rabid" fans. If my team isn't playing I'll watch another team and just enjoy the show

    Too bad we were supposed to play NC this past saturday and the game will never be made up from what I'm understanding. Guess that will mess up our standings. But then again there seems to be a "prejudice" against us "Hillbillys" in the big 12.
    Thats ok we're still proud Mountaineers!

    I'd say you would have to eat those words at the end of the season but being a bama fan I should probably say gum the words :)

    Miss State looked horrible the last few games... until today when they beat Auburn... They looked like a whole new team... Somebody snuck into Starksville last night and switched out all the players. ;)

    Florida Beat LSU also...

    The Bama-Georgia game was entertaining. I am glad for Jalen Hurts, came in in relief and done good.

    The Bama/Georgia game was fantastic... Even better, the Boise St/Fresno St game, it just finished. There is usually great collage ball this time of year.

    Bama... Tua didn't look right from the start. His timing was off, he just looked bad from the first snap... Unexplainable.

    Hurts... I was proud for the young man. He was 26/2 when he got benched during the national championship game last year. Tonight he showed how good he really is.

    Georgia clearly showed they are the 2nd best team in the nation... they can be proud.

    I have never liked Jalen being benched in favor Tua. Hubby said that's the reason Saban gets paid big bucks. I guess he knows what he's doing but I still don't like it.

    I suspect that Bama's quarterback coach has a chapter to write about young Mr. Hurts.

    Yea! @timmie RTR We won tonight. The Clemson ND game wasn't even close but there has been some great collage ball this week. There were two games where the ref's should have been taken out behind the wood shed. I hate it when a group of lousy referee's affect the out come of a game. These kids play their hearts out all year just to have their dreams dashed by shotty refs!

    There have been a few great games this week, I love this time of year.

    Tonight Oklahoma tried to Auburn us... remember a few weeks ago... Auburn couldn't match us with a real running or passing game. Tonight OK went to trickery because they couldn't match up just like Auburn. Who throws passes to the fullback out in the flat... people who can't run the ball or hit a receiver consistently.

    This is the first time I've seen the OK QB play, yep... he deserved the Heisman.

    Tonight, I’m watching Georgia getting their butts handed to them on a platter. I didn’t think Texas belonged in the same stadium with them. The SEC Championship must have taken everything out of the Georgia boys, the only explanation. I know they are far better than TX.

    Watched some good ball today. Kentucky/Penn state was a great game. LSU showed that UCF doesn’t belong in the FBS. The Mizzou/OK ST game was a heart breaker… There was another early game that was a heart breaker… MS ST/Iowa…

    I hate it when they schedule 3 or 4 big time games in the same time slot… Spread them out over a few days for Chriss Sake!

    Judging for the two games this past weekend… Clemson played 4 quarters of excellent football, solid ball start to finish. The Tide played 2 quarters of excellent football, a quarter and a half of crap and sneaked by. If Oklahoma had a defense, they’d have whipped us.

    If the Tide plays like that again… Clemson will beat us. Saban better have a plan to get our players heads out of their back sides. :(
