So BC joins the ACC. Boston doesn't get the ACC game but western MASS and CT/RI/ME do?

I mean should Georgia Tech even play games anymore? After only the second 7-0 start in school history (the first being the previous national championship), undisputed #1 rankings in all polls, and all five of the top heisman candidates, I think Tech should just give up while they're on top.

Maybe Tech should just spot other teams points, or play 3 men down...

Don't see how you can at the Big-ten/eleven other than the name (oh yeah, Das is a fan of ND and they are pretty much in the league whether they admit it or not).

He's a Buckeye. Type slowly and use small words (or post easy to understand pictures). Then he'll understand.

Just playin' with ya, Cow

Edit to add: Penn St/Purdue?! Looks like I'll finally get some use from the $100 I spent/wasted on ESPN Gameplan

I'm the only Iowa fan that has posted here in years. And why would I post when I'm just going to get shit on about it. Fuck MSU sucks rotten donkey balls and they still get more respect.

Wow, so no one watched or posted about VT thumping Clemson 24-7?

I didn't see that one coming. Maybe the gambler's here didn't either....hence the silence.

Louisville vs. WV....I think will be a great game. Not sure who I want to win. I think WV wins it, but Louisville will play them tough.

if my market is showing a non-HD game on ABC, then why can't they show the non-HD game on the non-HD channel and the HD game on the HD channel?

Because they want to fuck you over. I suspect that their reasons are 1) loss of Gameplan revenue and 2) I'm not sure how local commercials would work with that.

Believe me, I've been bitching about this for weeks. I get Gameplan so at least I can see the Mizzou game but only in SD.

Frankly, I don't know why ABC/ESPN chose to use HD equipment on the noon ESPN and ESPN2 games instead of the more competitive PSU game.

I would guess because the PSU game is regional, where the other ESPN/ESPN2 are national. I think it is the right decision to give the games that everyone is getting priority in their HD lineup.

Well, Auburn is showing again how beatable they are. Gaping holes in the defense allow Ole Miss to be tied at the half. And it's not been a fluke in any sense.
