American College Football...

Any fans?

Who's your favorite team?

I'm supporting Alabama, but I'm a little depressed since we just lost to LSU. Ugh.

Kansas is going all the way!!!!1111

Re: American College Football...

My college didn't have a football team (or frats) and back then the only good football team in the entire northeast was Penn State (and its a stretch to say they're in the northeast - ha ha).

When Jimmy Johnson took over as the Dallas Cowboys head coach, I started liking Miami.

I have a weird USC relationship because they let me use the facilities even though I'm not a student so I have goodwill towards them but too many of my friends are Trojans and when they start getting too full of themselves, I secretly root against USC

I guess I'm more of a "negative fan" in that I root against the Big Ten and the SEC.

I guess I still like The U even though they suck.

Re: American College Football...

Everyone hates the SEC. I mean, we ARE the best.

I'm so impressed with the Big East this year. They have like 6 really good teams. If I had to rate the major conferences:

SEC
Big Ten
Big East
ACC
Pac-10
Big 12

No offense to the Big 12, but it's really been a down year. I love Kansas, but they shouldn't be the best the Big 12 has to offer.

The SEC is clearly the best conference. Every team (except Ole Miss) is exceptionally good. 11 of 12 teams have a winning record. Heck, Florida is as good as they were last year, but the competition has just gotten too tough and they have three losses!

Re: American College Football...

Purdue fan here. Which is tough, because every time we seem on the verge of actually becoming an elite team, something inevitably goes wrong (see: 2003, 2004).

Agree that the SEC is the best conference this year. LSU probably should be the #1 team, but they have a habit of making games way too difficult for themselves. I wouldn't say every team in the SEC is "exceptionally" good, though. Kentucky and S. Carolina were overrated. Good, but not top 10 good. But being overrated is certainly NOT unusual this year (see: Cal, S. Florida, BC, USC, Wisconsin).

Florida and Auburn are the other two SEC teams I think have top 10 talent. Georgia, Tennessee, and Kentucky all seem like 10-20 level teams to me.

People were hating big time on the Big 10 being down earlier this year, but in all honesty, the ACC and the Big 12 are in exactly the same position. And wait for it - Kansas will lose to Missouri. I don't think I've seen an easier schedule than their's from a top 10 team.

The Pac-10 needs to shut it - can't believe some of them seriously considered themselves the best conference in the nation. They're good, but not all that. Guess who ND's only win of the season was against? Oh right - @ UCLA. Embarrassing. (Although to be fair, Northwestern from the Big 10 lost to Duke, of all teams. But at least Northwestern isn't turning around and beating the Big 10's "best" teams, like UCLA did by beating Cal.)

Final thought: I might cry if Michigan wins the Big 10 this season. Did they really have to lose to a D-II team before they suddenly realized they actually have talent? Sigh.

Sorry tterb--
Mind you, being a Husker fan, my credibility may be for sh-- (oh how the mighty have fallen--but at least Dr. Tom's back), but I think the 'Hawks can take the Tigers this year. Impetus is on their side.

Re: American College Football...

My favorite team upset the #2 team in the land last night. That's right, 'ole Bobby Bowden pulled out some of his magic from yesteryear.

FLORIDA ST. - 27
BOSTON COLL - 17

Your lack of credibility has nothing to do with your being a Nebraska Cornhusker fan, my friend.

My Favorite Teams


1. The U- Randy Shannon will right the ship. He got a bunch of recruits coming in next year and if we can fix the QB situation( Freeman and Wright are garbage) we'll be ok

2. LSU

My guys are the perennially underachieving University of California Golden Bears.

Re: American College Football...

My team is always Notre Dame but this year

So my backup is always Oregon. Initially, it's because green is my favorite color but their offense is always . It's so much fun. They're going to win the Pac-10 hands down. They just have to hope LSU can lose again which clearly can happen.

Let's go Ducks!

September 29, 2007: Cal 31, Oregon 24. We lost three straight after that, of course, but we're still the "And One" on the Ducks' record.

Re: American College Football...

Ugh. This bullshit makes me mad. Every week the experts say "Kansas is finally going to lose" and yet they are STILL undefeated! I knew they weren't going to be #1 this week, but I was keeping faith that maybe voters would use common sense. Even though they didn't get #1, I thought they would at least get in the top 3. But instead, Oklahoma jumps over them! This is just NOT fair. Kansas has not lost a game this year. They are the only major-conference program still undefeated and yet they still get shafted! And BTW, what the fuck has Oregon done this year? Oh wow! They barely beat a shitty USC team! Woohoo!
