A lot of teams got screwed yesterday. Beating LSU doesn't change the fact that Florida lost to Ole Miss.

 

And what the Hell did USC do to erase its loss to Oregon State? Underperform offensively against a weak Arizona State?

 

At the very least, one of the unbeatens below them should be in the top 5.

 

Preferably Oklahoma State. "Come after me! I'm a man! I'm 40!" :mischief

It was pretty ugly, but the Noles still got away with the W! 5-1 now!

 

Gotta love 2 (technically 3) road wins in a row.

 

I would think they would be in the Top 25 at weeks end. Virginia Tech next weekend!

 

 

Not only do I love the road wins, but I love Bobby for sticking it to the refs. I have a slight feeling that it was Bowden who actually won us the game, considering all of the calls we got in the second half.

 

Anyway, it's our first 5-1 start since 2005! I dont think its possible that we don't fall into at least the #25 spot. If the O-line improves, I think the Noles can definitely beat the Hokies next week.

160 yards so far for shonn greene... gone over 100 every game this year. Only RB in the nation to do so..

 

such a frustrating season.. could very well be undefeated. 3 losses by 9 points. Combine them with the bears and its frustrating.. i should have 2 undefeated teams but instead i have 2 teams with 3 losses. ugh

Looks like Texas Tech is in a lot of trouble, this could prove that they are way overrated if they lose.

Wisconsin and Clemson are the only teams that were truly overrated(Wisconsin is every year though). No one mentioned BYU's loss yet, which I find surprising.
