2 weird stats for Michigan. After 5 games they led the nation in forced turnovers. Since then, they've forced 1 turnover in 6 games

Braylon Edwards now owns the record for most career receiver yards ever against Ohio State, yet he's 1-3 against them

Sniff - I smell Roses

Although, being of the backdoor variety, they do stink a little

I feel bad that I didn't throw a bunch of money on Auburn -7 at the half. I already had them -4 wrapped up in a teaser that was my largest bet of the day, and I didn't want to have too much money on one single game, even though that -7 bet was like free money. I still won, but damn ...

sorry if this has been asked already, but why does Michigan get the Rose Bowl?

I thought the Big Ten's tiebreaker was to give the Rose Bowl to the team hasn't been there as recently as the other.

Hey Preacher... Bama played tougher than I expected. That D is as good as people say. If ya'll had a decent quarterback playing the score could have been very different. As it is, WAR EAGLE!

So, can someone explain to me how if Miami wins next weekend they will have beaten FSU and Va Tech but somehow FSU could still win the ACC?

And that makes sense how when Miami would have beaten all 3 teams they would be tied with?

Anyways it's amazing to me that if they end with the same record FSU could be voted ahead of a Miami team that beat them.

If Miami/FSU/VaTech are tied, since FSU and VT didn't play, it goes to highest BCS ranking -- FSU wins that.

Basically, Miami either needs FSU to lose to UF, or Virginia Tech to lose to Virginia.

Note that this is something they were really only worrying about through next year, since next year starts the annual FSU-Miami rematch, a/k/a the ACC title game.

Pretty ridiculous that a team that would hold wins over FSU, Virginia and Va Tech would need help to win that conference, no?

as always.. a big part of it is when your loses came
not to mention, fsu lost in overtime and on a missed fg

and of course, they always get extra poll respect

Miami lost one game in overtime and one on the last drive, total of 10 points. FSU lost to Miami head to head. Still, IMO, if they both end with the same record head to head should trump everything in regards to the polls.

better than the big 10 3 team tiebreaker, where the team that has gone the longest without winning the conf.. gets the edge


of course... after this season.. the acc will have this fixed... when bc comes over.. they will have a conf championship game.

It's only coming down to this because FSU and Va Tech did not play. If they would have, head to head would have been the tiebreaker.
