What a crazy day in college football today. Pittsburgh beat out Notre Dame on a FG in the 4th overtime and the Texas Tech-Texas game just had a crazy 1:30.

The crowd stormed the field twice after the Tech touchdown with a second left and Tech was penalized for it. As a result the Red Raiders have to kickoff from their seven yard line.

ETA: And, it's now over.

Great news for Penn State.

And Florida State was down by about 11, scored, got the 2-pt conversion, made an interception, marched down to the 3, went to score, fumbled, and lost the game.

And to make it worse: Florida and Miami both won. Fuck.

TCU I know there not big, but being this high up is really making me happy. I picked the wrong year to quit marching band.

Fuck.

So now there are three other one-loss teams in the Big XII South, all in the top ten, two of which we beat and one of which we were a dropped interception away from dispatching on the road.

Scenario: Tech beats Okie Lite in Lubbock Saturday, but loses to OU in Norman later in the month. Then you've got three one loss teams, each of which beat one and lost to the other in some sort of twisted circle. The team with the highest BCS ranking then wins the division.

Basically, I'm praying to not fall too far in the polls on this one. We just finished the most brutal stretch in program history and were one pick away from coming out unscathed on the road. At risk of sounding like Matt Leinart, I still think we're the better team.

Do the right thing, voters.


And YLB, I saw that FSU ending and cringed. What a stomach punch. My condolences.

Same for you, good sir. Tex and FSU still have solid chances though, so that's good.

If the BCS was a person, I would change my stance on the death penalty.

Texas is #5 in the AP behind Alabama, Tech, PSU, and Florida. PSU's shitty conference and signature win over an also-ran OSU team will hurt them. Florida lost at the Swamp to a horrible team. Tech will lose to OU and possibly Okie Lite. So maybe everything isn't lost, since we've clearly got the best resume of any other team this year.

All I know is my head will explode if we get forced into a USC/Penn State MNC game.

You and me both....I see SC playing either Penn State or OSU (again) BUT they need someone to beat Oregon State in the Pac-10 to meet in the Rose Bowl...

The Beavers travel to Tucson to play AZ and they may have trouble there...otherwise, no telling who gets to the Rose Bowl...

I will not be very happy if Penn State wins out and misses the national championship.

There's about eight teams that are good enough to have a shot at the championship ... hmmm, that sounds like a good number for a fucking 8-team playoff.
