Maybe a Penn State v. Oregon State rematch in the Rose Bowl at this rate...

SC can't get style points for their stellar defense and Coach Carroll looks like a guy finally on the way out...I really think he'll entertain a SF 49er offer...time to get out; despite the win, this team really upsets me...hey, Pete; take Mark Sanchez with you...there was a good article in Rivals earlier this week...suggests that Pete Carroll has basically removed all of the top talent from the rest of the PAC-10 as he gets them to commit to SC; it makes his team 5-deep at certain key positions and his acquisitions weaken the rest of the league...he'd rather stockpile these kids than take a chance that they would play for another team and come back to beat him...I'm pissed.

How was that a bullshit PI call? The safety hit the WR before the ball got there. Even the announcers called it that way. I would much prefer that Iowa would have completed a pass for the first down as opposed to getting it via a penalty, but it was the correct call.

PSU needed to generate more than 86 yards of offense in the last 30 minutes. They didn't, and that's why they lost.

He did not hit him, they hit each other, both going for the ball.

They did not play well enough to win that game, and that is the story of the day. I agree.

The big play was Williams shying away from the ball and letting the Iowa guy pick it off. He played scared and it cost them.

The fact that, if OU wins out, we'll be behind them in the BCS at the end of the year is ridiculous. I guess a double digit victory on a neutral field head-to-head means nothing.

I read the same article. Seeing how bad the Washington teams are I tend to believe it. The conference doesn't deserve an automatic BCS berth. That is the thing that has really bothered me this year. The Mountain West deserves that spot.

There is not much balance in college football right now.

I think it's something that needs to be reformed in a number of ways.

Is a university, for instance, SC, bound to a certain conference? What does it take for a school to withdraw and declare itself an Independent? Anyone?

I was wondering the same thing for Penn State. Unfortunately for them, there's no conference close to an SEC or Big XII in that area.

I just talked to my cousin. He had booked a hotel for Miami for the National Championship Game, knowing they would be in high demand. He just called to cancel the reservations.

Tell your cousin the weather in Pasadena is always lovely during the Rose Bowl game...(and ask if he's got an extra ticket!)...

Wow. One bad year and you're ready to throw the Pac-10 under the bus.
