I for one didn't mind the MSU-UM game. It'll put my Longhorns one more spot up in the BCS come Monday. Gotta give a shout-out to Washington for dealing with Stanford, who was hot on the tail of Texas.

Happy Sports Day will officially begin tomorrow after the Steelers prove who really has the best defense in the NFL.
As for college I guess I should say

too bad the cougars have decent seasons no more than once per decade. should be a good apple cup though, but of course my dawgs will win.

Them puppies are gonna get cat scratch fever.

That's amazing since most college football games have scores like 90-3.
2001-11-04 01:48:02 AM  
And Penn State nails 3 in a row..... but then there were those insane 70-3 type scores... what was up with that crap? Oh well... The MSU-MU game was a fantastick one, indeed!
2001-11-04 02:02:21 AM  
Sounds like it's finally time for Ohio State to beat the crap outta Michigan. I don't know where that came from at all, but it's true
2001-11-04 02:05:19 AM  
Being from Arkansas, I have one thing to say.

Go Hogs!!
2001-11-04 02:12:52 AM  
Being from Illinois, I'm rooting for anyone who beats Michigan...
2001-11-04 02:19:17 AM  
Chach: Naw, we outplayed you guys. Don't pretend that a bad ref call at the end of the game was why you lost. Besides, the bad ref calls went both ways the entire game (MSU's touchdown that was called back for example). So go green and white and shiate.

Illini Citrus Bowl!

Maryland Terps Rule!

Would love it Welstra, and it's looking closer and closer after the slaughter of purdue. Unfortunately, Michigan has to lose again, and I think they'll lay off the pass interference the next couple games.

From ESPN.com:

Arkansas and Mississippi combined for 198 total plays, breaking the previous Division I record of 196 set in 1971. They scored 80 points in OT, another Division I record. "I'd like to celebrate and be rah-rah, but we played four hours," said Arkansas linebacker Jermaine Petty.

tuned in at the end of the 3rd quarter tied 10 all. it was the best college football i've seen. although the overtime setup was wierd. both teams played their hearts out. really glad i got to see it.

go hogs
2001-11-04 10:36:28 AM  
Watched all 4 hours and 24 minutes and as anyone from Arkansas knows:

Hogs Smell Good!!
2001-11-04 11:23:48 AM  
Arkansas fans: it's nice that your team won but haven't you heard of a thing called DEFENSE? Same goes for you Ole Miss fans. What an ugly game. Neither team desrved the win; both teams should have been given losses after the 5th OT.
2001-11-04 11:40:11 AM  
Woo Pig Sooie!
The Razorbacks made it to FARK! And for winning!
The Hogs were in a so-so season this year. Looks like with this win and beating a ranked South Carolina team, the coach gets to keep his job another year.

Yeah, I'm from Arkansas and a UA alum.
Go Hogs!
2001-11-04 12:38:52 PM  
This place is full of Arkansans, me included!

Go Hogs! Woooooooooooooooooo Piggggggggggggggggg Sooooooooooie!

Isn't there already enough barbarian warfare going on in the world?
2001-11-04 01:41:49 PM  
Statusquo, the #2 team in the Big Ten goes to the Citrus Bowl. Not counting a major farkup, Illinois should get there. Or, if Michigan loses some more, Illinois could push into the BCS.
2001-11-04 03:04:39 PM  
Go, my team!
2001-11-04 03:23:28 PM  
Welstra, where does the number one team go now that the rose bowl is the BCS championship bowl?
2001-11-04 03:40:05 PM  
To the over-rated Big 10 Poop-Face Bowl.
2001-11-04 03:42:21 PM  
The #1 team from the Big 12, Big 10, Pac-10, Big East, ACC, and SEC get automatic BCS berths (Rose, Fiesta, Sugar, Orange) which leaves open 2 slots for good teams that didn't win their conference. Hilarity ensues when a conference champ plays for the national championship. From ABC's BCS page (http://espn.go.com/abcsports/bcs/about/):

The BCS, which runs through the 2005 regular season and 2006 bowl season, consists of the Rose Bowl presented by AT&T, Nokia Sugar Bowl, FedEx Orange Bowl and the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. Conferences with automatic berths include the Atlantic Coast, Big East, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-10 and the Southeastern Conferences.
The BCS also notes the importance of regional consideration regarding team selection. Specifically, as participating members of the BCS, the four BCS Bowls will host the following conference champions in the years the national championship game is not played at their site. Regional consideration tie-ins include the ACC or Big East champion in the FedEx Orange Bowl, the SEC champion in the Nokia Sugar Bowl, the Big Ten and the Pac-10 champion in the Rose Bowl presented by AT&T and the Big 12 champion in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl.
Should a BCS Bowl's regional tie-in champion be ranked number one or two in the final BCS standings, when such bowl is not hosting the national championship game, the number one or two-ranked team shall move to the national championship game and the Bowl shall select a replacement team from the BCS pool of eligible teams. The pool will consist of any Division I-A team that is ranked among the Top 12 in the final BCS standings or has achieved nine wins during the regular season excluding NCAA-exempted contests.

Hey Ootsyboots, where was your penguin-loving butt when I was still in Arkansas?
