Computers love UF as they are ranked 7 in the human polls. THE Ohio State University's recent cup cake non-conference games have hurt their computer ranking. Auburn jumped from 17 to 9. Stanford jumped from 16 tp 11. UT after getting literally steam rolled by UCLA dropped from 2 to 17.

War Eagle. Did any of you see the picture of AU’s eagle flying right about the head of some of the people at the game Saturday? Simply amazing. My DAWGS did not do too badly either.

Lest we forget...The 1916 Cumberland vs. Georgia Tech football game was a college football game played on October 7, 1916, between the Georgia Tech Engineers and the Cumberland College Bulldogs. The game became the most lopsided in the history of college football, as Georgia Tech was victorious 222–0.

Cumberland College, a school in Lebanon, Tennessee, had discontinued its football program before the season but was not allowed to cancel its game against the Engineers. The fact that Cumberland’s baseball team had crushed Georgia Tech earlier that year 22-0 (amidst allegations that Cumberland used professionals as ringers) probably accounted for Georgia Tech coach John Heisman’s running up the score on the Bulldogs. He insisted on the schools’ scheduling agreement, which required Cumberland to pay $3,000 ($59,780 in inflation-adjusted terms) to Tech if its football team failed to show. So, George E. Allen (who was elected to serve as Cumberland’s football team student manager after first serving as the baseball team student manager) put together a scrub team of 14 men to travel to Atlanta as Cumberland’s football team.

According to the “Sports Hall of Shame” book series, another reason for Heisman’s plan to run up the score was that collegiate rules at the time ranked teams based on how many points they scored. Heisman did not consider that statistic a true mark of a team’s success, and may have unleashed his players on Cumberland to make his point.

Legend has it that in spite of being up by 126 points at halftime, Heisman fired up his team to keep the assault going by saying, ``You can't tell what those Cumberland players have up their sleeves!''.

Boise State #2 when they play no ranked opponents.

I'm a fan of BSU, and I think they are way too high on this ranking.

That being said, Oregon State was ranked #24 when they played this last Saturday, and VA Tech was ranked #6 when they played on September 6.

If oregon State and Virginia Tech add more losses onto their records, the Broncos will NOT play for the National title. Not with their schedule.

War Eagle! It was ausome on Saturday. Were you there? Although I live on The Plains, I watched it on TV. At $40 a seat, there is no way I could pay that.

There is something a matter with the Billingsley Report's ratings, that is 1/4 of the computer contribution.

They've got 4-0 Stanford rated #19, and 3-1 Texas #12.

Lessee, Stanford beat UCLA 35-0, and UCLA beat Texas 34-12. Did this not compute?

Getting by Rice and Wyoming must have given Texas an insurmountable lead.

True. I just wish BSU could get more into their schedule as far as ranked teams go. I'd be willing to see them lose, just for a chance to play stronger teams.

It is noted that the SEC dominates the rankings with 3 teams in the top 10. Having said that, this Auburn Alumna puts no credence in the BCS.

I went into the Lids store at the mall here and asked if they had BSU hats (they have hats for nearly every other college). The guy behind the counter said when they win a national championship, maybe they would stock them...

Puleeze.... there is nothing so obnoxious as NFL players identifying themselves as from “THE Ohio State Univ.”, as if there is some other University also known as Ohio State. . 2nd place goes to the guys who say they are simply from “the U” (i.e., Univ of Miami). I’ll cheer for any of the other 9 on the list, but find THE university obnoxiously arrogant.

BSU and TCU cannot be taken out of context by considering one season. The fact is that they are ranked this high based on their accomplishments in the past four or more seasons. I blame the BCS system which has favorite conferences, but does nothing to encourage their favorites to schedule tough out-of-conference games. BSU and TCU get a lot of flack for playing teams that they are obligated to play in conference, but Alabama, Ohio State and Texas should be heavily penalized for scheduling SJSU, Austin Peay, and Wyoming.

We had tickets but gave them to R's son and his friend. Watched it on tv. It was a very good game. He has season tickets. We plan to go down for 2 games in October and one in November. We went down a couple of weeks ago. I stayed in my hotel room since it was so hot. Now, it is getting more like football weather. I can not take this very hot weather anymore. I was talking to my sister earlier today and she said she could not take the heat any longer either. Guess we are just plain out spoiled by AC.

I really did not care for either team until we moved here. The Bama fans drive me nuts. When I started dating the man I am dating, I had to start rooting for AU since he played for them. The campus down there is very beautiful. Kind of reminds me of Mississippi State. War Eagle and Go Dawgs.

OSU always manages to show their true ranking when they play UF ...

There is a restaurant in Alex City which he went to when he was a student.and it had great food. Do you know which one I am talking about? Maybe we could meet there. It is about a mile from the main highway through Alex City. I think I got the catfish.

No, I have no idea. You know that restaurant on 280 which overlooked the lake has closed. That’s the only one I’m familiar with (except I never ate there). But, if y’all want, you could come to my home in Auburn and we would treat you.

Yeah, we were going to go there but it was closed. When I talk to him, I will ask him what the name of the restaurant is. Have to talk to him first. It is my car but he does the driving! Will let you know. When we went down 2 weeks ago, he rode the bus from McDonald’s down from the hotel to the game. It was a lot easier on him. I did not plan to go anywhere so he drove the car there and left it like others did.

They were there to see Auburn.

Yeah, he went to one game last year and it was close to 1 when I went down to MD’s to pick him up. It is only going to get worse. I hate traffic of any size. My daughter and her hubby went to Atlanta a few weeks ago. The traffic was terrible so she got out her Ipad, looked at the traffic to see just how bad it was, got off the interstate, went to a close by restaurant and stayed there. They kept checking the traffic on the ipad and when they saw it was getting better, they went and got back on the interstate. Isn't electronics marvelous?

It is a beautiful campus. And actually Auburn has a fairly conservative faculty, which is more than can be said for Alabama.

But I grew up in Tuscaloosa, and have three degrees from Alabama.

Roll Tide!

I went to Mississippi State and really did not care for either team. But, after moving here, the Bama fans drove me nuts. Now, I am dating a guy who played for Auburn on The Amazins which started the punt, bama, punt yell. When we started dating, I told him that at least, he had not played for Bama! State has a beautiful campus, too. Many of their buildings are on the historical registry. State had the largest dorm in the country until it burned about 1959 which was before I went there. 1500 students lived in it including Jerry Clower. That area is the drill field now or was when I was there back in the good ole days. State's sports’ announcer, Jack Cristil is the best in the business. I learned football by listening to him when I was about 9 years old. Ah, what great memories of those days.

And yet, I'll bet they stock hats from teams that haven't won a national championship in decades.

They are supposed to make a movie about that game. My friend had never told me about it. Someone on this site told me. He has an old football injury so he has an elevator pass at the stadium. He said 4 bowl reps were there to watch Auburn. Guess they must have been special to ride the elevator! That was 2 games ago. We have so much fun together. His wife died several years ago from cancer and hubby died in 06 from liver cancer. Guess God knew what He was doing when He got us together. We are both nuts! We went to the Outback Bowl last year. Met some really nice fans from AU and Northwestern. What a crazy game it was. We ate at The Columbia Restaurant several times. If you are ever there, you have to eat there.

"I prefer this one: Yahoo! User Rankings1.Alabama 2.Ohio State 3.Nebraska 4.Oregon 5.Arkansas"

The fact that Nebraska's wins have come against Western Kentucky (who hasn't won a game since September 2008), Idaho (who has had one winning season since 1999), and South Dakota State (a division I-AA, or whatever they're called now, team), demonstrate how stupid Yahoo Users are.

I like Nebraska and Bo Pelini, but no way they should be ranked higher than a lot of the other major conference undefeateds.

BSU tried to get teams to play them, even offering to forgo the home-and-home that schools often agree to. I’d like to see a rank penalty if a college has an open date on their schedule, is challenged by another team, and chooses not to play.

Virginia Tech and Oregon State have been good teams in recent years, yet if they suck this year, BSU gets penalized. What a system.
