2006 - losses to Oregon State by 2 and UCLA by 4.
2007 - losses to Stanford by 1 and Oregon by 7;
2008 - loss to Oregon State by 6...

The only surprise loss of the above is the Stanford game where 'SC was favored by 42+; any team can walk on the field and get it handed to them but these scores don't reflect 'SC ever getting "beat badly".

Sorry, but you were beaten up on both sides of the line, that is what I was talking about. The score was close, but I hadn't seen USC get dominated in the trenches like that before.

They are still a good team, but the point I was trying to make is any team has a chance these days.

I guess we'll see. During their 3 game losing streak I was pretty much ready to see him go. There is some decent talent, but for whatever reason it wasn't clicking.

They have beaten two bad teams in IN and WI, but at least they've beaten them pretty good. It wasn't a 13-9 or something close.

This is still a big year for KF. They are sitting at 5-3, have perhaps the best RB in the country (Shon Greene), and the team has some momentum. If Iowa can finish 8-4, or even 7-5, that is an improvement over last year.

The team is playing with more fire this year, it's just too bad the coaching staff had to mix/match the QB situation which cost us at least one game.

It's not going to get any easier next year, with Michigan and OSU coming back on the schedule.

Yeah those two teams will be tough next year because they'll have big chips on their shoulders.

It's always great going to Tallahassee and seeing a Florida State win. Here's to hoping they break the seal from mediocrity to greatness soon.

Definitely did, that's for sure. College visit, too, so that's good.

I like seeing Ohio State lose, too.

I'm going to Jacksonville for the Florida Georgia game next weekend. It's always a great weekend there! This is a huge one for us...

Glad you had fun. That game would've been painful for me to watch, but I'm sure things were pretty exciting over there. FSU is your top choice, no?

It's nice to see FSU back in the ACC driver's seat. As a kid growing up in Florida, I always loved the Noles.

I want to try to get to Lubbock this weekend. Since it's Halloween weekend and the prospect of a long trip to the middle of nowhere, expensive tickets, and having to spend a weekend in the worst city in Texas (Bryan/College Station is also up there) is not enticing, I think I'll take a pass. I'd rather just hit up a bar here with my brethren.

Indeed, mostly for the Film School. The first half was pretty back and forth, but the second half was great. I'm sure they'll be playing each other again come ACC Championship game time though.

They've still got to play Georgia Tech, Maryland, Clemson, and Boston College, but the Maryland and BC games are the only ones they should be worrying about, since they're in the same division. Miami beating up on Wake this week was great, too.

And Go Georgia.

I would absolutely LOVE to go to another ACC Championship game, but I have 3 damn finals that following week. You should totally go if FSU goes. Scalp tix, it's much cheaper that way. We had no problem finding tix last year.

FSU has always been a tough opponent. Regardless of how they're doing that season, the Hokies have lost every game they've played since like, the 70s. The exception of course, was last year, lol making it such a big game for me (even though I had to watch it in a bar in NYC with teh bunny). That coach knows Beamer like the back of his hand. Anytime you allow the opposite team only 38 yards in the second half, you know you're on!

The Hokies play Maryland next, and they're 3-1 in the conference so far. So I'm kinda concerned. Then it's Miami, which, *shouldn't* be a problem. This season finishes off with 2 easy games, Duke and UVA. With the current conference standing being 2-2, if the Hokies lose another game, there's no way they'll make it to the ACC Championship.

I've also not yet heard updates on Taylor or Glennon. Both quarterbacks in the 1st half...wtf!

I went to the first ACC Championship game in '05 in Jacksonville, probably the best of the 10 or so games I've seen in person. If FSU gets there, my dad will probably find tix or something; back then, we couldn't even give our tix away for free, let alone expect a win.

Hah, yeah.

Maryland's been killing it so far, but they can probably take them. The team you really have to worry about is Georgia Tech, and hope they lose to FSU next week and maybe lose another conference game after that. UVA's like Jekyll and Hyde - I wouldn't be surprised if they finished up top or dropped all the way next to Duke toward the bottom.

First play of the first half for Taylor, no less. The third-stringer did a decent job, but FSU had all of the momentum at that point that it didn't make much of a difference.

I'll just go ahead and say it. Okie Lite is a phenomenal team this year.
