Boom,I was pulling for Clemson.I nodded off when FSU went up 35-31 then woke up and it was 49-31 with Clemson driving.Good read,but to say the SEC is overated is just inaccurate.LSU just didnt come to Auburn with their A GAME,but is still very good.Nothing would give me more pleasure than Oregon beating Bama in NC..Oregon team is better than their 2010 squad which wouldve beat Bama by 2 touchdowns 2010.FSU will find a way to darn up..they always do..Georgia has a great team and did u see SCar DOMINATE Mizzou?Florida sQ b is pretty damn good especially when I thought he was HORRID..NotreDame could very well go undefeated in reg season.Wtf is wrong with Skip Holtz..Yeah,Okla GAVE THE GAME TO Kstate.Stoops needs to take a yr off and go coach another program.West Va is a mystery team,but they have been beating good programs ever since Pat White has been there..Ga,Aub,Okla,and Im sure Im leaving off some...Did anybody get to see Titans-Lions game today?Easily best game Ive seen this season..It had Miracle In MusicCity backward pass punt return for TD,Kickoff return for TD,great catches by Megatron,Hailmary Pass for Td  to take it to overtime.Megatron is the most DOMINANT WR TO EVER PLAY FOOTBALL..U CANT DEFEND HIM!4 teams in top 8 and SEC is Overated?C'mon man!

Boom the ND defense is stout, but what about the offense?  There is nothing there.  Their back, Riddick is good but that is it.  Can you say an offense from the SEC would have scored 13 points with 6 turnovers?  The Irish will win 9-10 games and get blown out in a BCS game IMO

That late TD for Absolutely no reason really raises a flag. If anyone else seen or noticed this comment on it.


I didn't see the Kansas game but I did see the 4th down and 4 up 20-7 with 1:20 left in the game on 16 yd line and let's throw a pass when Virginia doesn't have any timeouts.  Absolutely no reasonable argument for that (if your worried about a crazy comeback the FG would have put that out of reach.

This didn't even get a mention in the media either.

Virginia is not a stellar team by any stretch but they had tons of opportunities in this one.  With 4 Virginia turnovers and if you take that BS touchdown away then the win doesn't look that impressive. Cause it's not, TCU is not very good.

TCU is trash...they are grossly overrated...I don't know if key players are on the take...maybe they need the payoffs from the Russian Mafia to pay for their dope...People should stay away from TCU going forward...

No argument or water needed.

Agreed...I also didn't understand UVa calling 2 TOs down by 13 w/o the ball inside of 2 mins w/ TCU in the red zone.  Then TCU goes for it on 4th down when a FG would ice it....surprised this is getting no play in the media.

I'm also done w/ TCU this year...

FWIW, I vote in the BlogPoll and have LSU #4 (the Auburn game was terrible, but the Washington win was pretty nice, and I still think they're better than Georgia/K-State/NotreDame). I dropped Clemson to #12. Not sure exactly where you have those teams, but I'm betting we're not that far off. At least not compared to the size of your gripe with the regular polls. 


I would still vote lsu 4th or 5th.. Just making a point.

Bol this week Arid

Alright, 1st post but have been reading Boom since last year, good insight but I have to say after watching Clemson the last few weeks, their defense isn't scaring anybody.  They are an explosive offensive team for sure, but they are not quite ready for 60 minutes against the top tier teams just yet.  They looked gassed in the 4th quarter and it showed.  Don't let the nickname bias you, yes I am a Tennessee alum and yes we are still have a long way to go.  I think the SEC has the best product out there but like every conference we have our bottom feeders too.  You think Vandy is horrid, have you seen Kentucky?

My thoughts,  Alabama is scary good..... Oregon is talented but I like FSU a little more.  If they both go undefeated, Oregon would probably get the nod but I doubt either goes undefeated.  FSU because they always lose a game they shouldn't and Oregon will likely lose a road game in the PAC 12.

I don't post much in your thread because I don't think you like me much, but I just wanted to say how much respect I had for your Clemson team after the game last night.  To do what they did against my Seminole's D was very impressive.  I agree that Clemson may be a year or two away from competing at the very top level but Dabo is a very fine coach and I think they'll get there.

The game I'd most like to see this season would be Oregon-FSU.  I don't care if it's in the Holiday Bowl.

Great thread, as always.  Always come right here on Sunday night after putting the kids down.

Are you clueless or what? only reason Auburn had a chance to beat LSU(which they did) is LSU fumbled going in to take a 16 to 0 lead. Then LSU fumbles to give Auburn a td. Only reason Auburn scored is because LSU gave them the ball in position to score. Auburn had 99 total yards at the end of 3 quarters!  Are you kidding me!! Yeah keep thinking the rest of SEC is overrated. You are clueless!!

FSU gave up 37 points to Clemson. At home. I need to see more before I claim that FSU is such a great D. Want to see a great D? Watch Bama.

I think Clemson would give Bama's D quite a test.

All the Bama homers need to recognize they haven't played a team with a pulse yet or one specifically that can throw.  I saw numerous times in the Arky game where the secondary was totally out of position, but the backup QB couldn't see it.

if you watched the game, you might have noticed the adjustments they made which shut them down except for a junk TD near the end there which moosed a host of seminole backers (I was not on the game BTW, never am).

Alabama is a great team.  No one is debating that.  But it's not a foregone conclusion that they make it to the end, by any stretch.

I only saw bits and pieces, while wearing whiskey glasses. FSU has not, until Clemson, played anyone. When they played a team with more than a HS O, they looked 'human'. I never said it was a foregone conclusion that Bama would 'make it to the end'. I said that they were a great D. In case you missed it, I am not a Bama fan, by any stretch

  Top Ten things we learned, always a good read, Boom.  #5 about the truths we see in other teams?  Penn St. 3-1 ats but more importantly  0-4 OU.  Not sure if it's because the books figured O'Briens NFL experience would equate to instant offense, and upped the lines in anticipation, or if their defense is that good.  I think the latter. It will be interesting to see if they go on the road and continue to play great defense.  I'm thinking they do, as good defense travels better then good offense.  BOL  in the season ahead.
