Looks like Johnny Football may have just won the Heisman as well.

I think the distinction is breaking News does not only mean breaking political news..more folk follow sports than politics and ND being #1 is bigger news than anything talked about here for most Americans

Chill.

When I’m flipping between three channels watching exciting things happen in real time, that’s breaking.

And it’s news, if you enjoy sports and appreciate the economic impact of athletics on our economy.

You sound grumpy. Did you miss your nap?

You think Chizik is safe? Looks like at least Auburn is recruiting well. Lot of new coaches in the SEC next year, between Kentucky, Tennessee and Arkansas, at least.

They beat the team that just beat Oregon.

“that’s what makes college football so great”

My fear if they expand the playoffs is that it will be like college basketball, who really cares about college basketball until the tournament, you pretty much know all of the big names will be there.

But with college football, one week can change everything, like tonight.

Damn Lindsay Scott!

That was a miracle. I remember Larry Munson breaking his chair and saying, "I gave up....and you did too".

What made that day all the more sweeter for Ga. fans, is that ND was #1 and was tied by a woeful Ga. Tech team.

I mean you can't beat that....you're hated rival helps you out and still doesn't get the win!

Id much rather argue about who should have been in the Championship game than change to a basketball style playoff. I think the BSC while not perfect is about right..

It was an amazing turnaround for a Gator team that went winless the previous year, winning that game would have been huge.

As a Baylor Grad,

Please,
as a courtesy to real colleges,

never,

and I do mean Never,

say Sic ‘em and the vulgar gig em in the same sentence.

aggies are the only school who has to deride another better school in their fight song.

For those of you not from Texas, it is like mentioning Reagan an Marx as equals.

I do too.

A&M (and LSU) showed that Bama is human and Georgia seemed to find its defense in the (sorry ‘bout that) Florida game.

This is the most talented non-Herschel Georgia team I can remember. (and I remember Fran Tarkington in the Orange Bowl)

So its looking like a Notre Dame - Alabama (just like 1973) or a Notre Dame - Georgia (just like 1980) game. Somewhere Beano Cook is smiling.

Something I liked with the Wake ND game it was only 38-0 after being 21-0 in the first quarter, these teams running up the score to get points in the polls are pathetic the neat thing about sports is the competition not the score..

Easy to play good defense when your opponent hands you the ball.

The loss pisses me off. How many times does KSU get this chance to win it all? They blow a chance every 14 years. So now I have no idea what bowl they make and who they play.

Since I didn't get the aTm game in my area, I have to ask why he was trying to kick the extra point?

As a fellow Baylor grad, I agree with your entire post whole-heartedly!! The ags are ghastly. They could win every game from now until the end of the world and they would still be gross. I always notice that, even after weekends when U.T. loses and a&m wins, far more kids at the school where I teach wear Texas shirts than aggie shirts. Even the kids know that a losing Texas team is better than a winning aggie team. Baylor t-shirts have grown in popularity around here, thanks to Robert Griffin. We may catch up with the aggies in the T-shirt race yet, lol.

Great game tonight! Thanks for starting this thread, freedom1st! Congratulations on raising such a smart granddaughter!! ;)

Sic ‘em Bears!!!

Those folks who wear t-shirts of a school they didn’t attend (or more likely can’t get into) are called “t-shirt fans.” Seriously, they are. I know you meant it well, but it’s generally considered kind of pathetic, although good for the economy.

FWIW, I cheered for Baylor last night. They played a terrific game, truly impressive.

But it’s a shame all those seats were empty.

Seriously?

Are you unaware that the opening lines of the University of Texas fight song are: “Texas fight! Texas fight! And it’s goodbye to A&M.”

Those two academically excellent research universities have been rivals for well over a century, and they celebrate it on Saturdays in the fall. Sit back and enjoy it.

Sumlin said Manzeil had been practicing for a couple of weeks and making them. He kicked some in high school. Goodness knows Bertolet hasn’t been accurate and had already missed at least one kick before Manziel tried.

And to inject a little fun into the game. Seriously, he said that. The game was essentially over when Manziel tried the extra point. He left the game after that play.

A lot of people don’t know that Manziel’s impressive stats would be much higher if Sumlin didn’t yank him shortly after the half in many of the games, to keep the score down. Which is just good sportsmanship.

The bench got a lot of good experience in the second half yesterday.

You do realize that A&M is still one of the most conservative universities in the nation and UT one of the most liberal. A&M was ranked 3rd in the nation for military academies this year, behind only West Point and the Naval Academy.

There have been tens of thousands of Aggies out there defending your freedom in uniform over the years ... my husband being one of them. He’s returning from his 13th deployment as I type this and may actually make it home for Thanksgiving this year.

You might want to think about that the next time throw all that venom at the maroon and white.

... Not to mention that almost every A&M ‘away’ game this season, we have received kudos for being the friendliest visitors most of the teams have ever hosted.

And Johnny Football is just fun to watch. What football fan out there cannot appreciate that talent?

Why all the anger? Yeesh.

Thank you for the comment about my granddaughter. She was accepted at UT and Baylor. She decided on Baylor because of the smaller student population and its Christian origins. She’s very happy she choose Baylor.

Your ‘real college’ comment is very telling.

Get over it. It is a sports thing. I live in one of the two communities adjacent to Ft. Hood (grew up here) so I do know a little something about the service of military members. I have spent my entire career serving the children of those who serve our country. Yes, I know, too, that U.T. is extremely liberal and a&m is conservative. Again, it’s a sports thing. I don’t care about U.T.’s politics when I am watching games. I think a&m’s traditions are beyond silly. The male cheerleaders who look and act like they’ve just escaped the asylum or are swabbing the deck or...whatever they seem to be doing, are strange, okay? And burying Lassie under Kyle Field and treating it like sacred ground? Also strange. Listen, everyone in the state of Texas has had to put up with the aggies’ obnoxious fans forever; it’s just sad that aggie fans can’t take what they dish out. Case in point: your need to make like Dryman and I are The Devil for ribbing the ags. You must not spend much time on sports threads. Our comments were quite tame, I can assure you.

I appreciate your husband’s service and am so glad he is home with you for Thanksgiving!
