That other thread is way too big to wade through so, here we go.
No surprise, especially after he asked off ESPN's telecast of Michigan-Ohio St., but Urban Meyer's health and family have obviously improved to the point where he can coach again. Here's hoping Ohio St. gets slammed with probation and we'll see just how long Urban sticks around.
Despite KOK's constant claims of Arkansas owning a quick strike offense, LSU put the smack down on them Friday afternoon. Looking at their schedule, Arkansas might have been one of the worst #3 teams in the country ever. Their best win is a 4 pointer over a 6-6 A&M. The only two schools worth a crap they played (Alabama and LSU) blasted them. They beat Missouri St., Troy, and New Mexico in non-conference and didn't have to play Georgia in the SEC this year.
Who's ready for another 9-6 shootout? LSU and Alabama certainly look for all the world like they will play for the NC. LeBreton wrote a decent article today http://www.star-telegram.com/2011/11/27/3553898/alabama-blew-it-oklahoma-state.html where he discusses that if every game in College Football really does count, as the BCS says, than a rematch can't happen. Also an interesting point made that most rankings have the Big 12 being a better top to bottom conference this year than the SEC, yet Alabama will play in the NC game over Oklahoma St., who could still win the Big 12.
In a real defensive scrum, Baylor finally beat Tech 66-42. I knew Tech was beat up, but man they have more injuries than even I thought. A WR actually started at CB. Give credit to Gannaway at Baylor, I don't think I've ever seen a less impressive 200 plus yard rushing performance.
