    2:00PM Clemson @ Wake Forest
    3:30PM #16 Virginia Tech @ #24 Miami (FL)
    8:00PM #25 Florida State @ Maryland

    Notes: Picking Miami for the upset purely based on feel. There are no stats to back this up.

    Notes: With Northwestern's QB out for the season, I gotta go with the Illini. This week will determine if there will still be 3 or 2 contenders for the conference championship. Ohio State has to play a great game to beat Iowa. Wisconsin might actually break 100 this game.

    I have to agree with him on the Wisc. vs. Mich. game. I just hope he is right about PSU vs. IU.
  5. Our defense isn't THAT bad. Although I don't know if Martin and Mouton are still out. :omy:
  6. Michigan has the 11th ranked total defense in the conference.
    Indiana has the 10th.

    Michigan has the 10th ranked rushing defense in the conference.
    Indiana has the 9th.

    Michigan has the 11th ranked scoring defense in the conference.
    Indiana has the 9th.

    Yes....when it comes to playing Wisconsin, your defense IS that bad. Just a question of will Bulemia actually run up the score or not.


  8. Holy Shit! :eek:

    If this story becomes fully true, the SEC will need to find another member to qualify for a championship game.

    This will be a very incredibly long read with multiple links you will need to read t get the full story
  9. I have no allegiance to anyone but Ohio State. So there's no reason for me to pick one team over another. And before anyone says it, the computers already hate Ohio State so Miami is no longer helping our case.
  10. Jesus Christ Im not reading all that.

    What I quoted was enough for you to realize what is going to happen. You just need to read the rest if you want to know why.

    The general gist is that there's racketeering involved as well as human trafficking (basically) and this has been going on long before Cam Newton.
  12. I don't even know what the deal with Cam Newton is. :eek:
  13. In short:

    He cheated on homework/tests 3 times at Florida before getting caught with a stolen laptop.
    He then offered to play for Miss. St for the bargain price of $180,000.
    Then without any indication, he chose Auburn along with 3 other recruits who were heavy leans to other schools, chose Auburn, Cam's dad gets money out of nowhere to rebuild his church and gets a $60,000 truck.
  14. Maybe the good lord provided for them.
  15. Theres alot of d1 schools that pull the same shit, they just haven't been blatantly caught.
  16. Yeah, everyone does it. Do people really think its about academics anymore? REALLY???
  17. that's why I call it minor league football
  18. The issue is that Auburn didn't care. This is like USC but they added neon lights to it.
  19. I've watched all of the bama vs. gsu game so far. this could have easily been over 100-0.
    how did first year of ncaa football gsu get this game scheduled? it's like the pats playing a pop warner team. I heard gsu got paid 400k for being in this.
  20. Alabama needed practice for Auburn.
