    And I wouldn't be surprised at all if Missouri goes into Austin next week and beats the Horns. This is what I love about college football, and the Big 12. It's exciting, you don't know what's gonna happen.

    Yes. I begrudgingly admit the Big 12 is a very strong conference this year.

    Elsewhere, Georgia Tech beat Gardner Webb (who?) 10-7.

    Just another crazy day in college football.

    Let me rephrase that. Its not so much the fans that irritate me, but rather all the local radio stations and the Austin American Statesman that really make me cringe. I mean, c'mon, UT is not always the best team in the country. Its just absurd how much they consistently overrate UT in the Austin area. Its just so arrogant. /rant.

    To be honest, I liked UT before I moved to Austin. Since then, perhaps one of my least favorite Big 12 teams.

    @Jeffster: Exactly my reaction as well.

    Wow, what a day. What are we looking at with the next polls? Does Alabama go to #1, even though they didn't play? Or Texas? Penn St. up to #3?

    I imagine it'd be somewhat similar to this:

    1) Alabama
    2) Texas
    3) Penn State
    4) Oklahoma
    5) USC
    6) Texas Tech
    7) Florida
    8) BYU
    9) Oklahoma St.
    10) Missouri (Maybe LSU)

    Shit this is tough. Its hard trying to guess how they're going to vote, Texas and Alabama may switch. I don't think Oklahoma will fall too far, but may fall farther than I put. And as much as I hate to say it, Tech may actually move backwards in the polls. USC had 5 turnovers, but still won 28-0, which in my opinion actually helps them. BYU may move up more.

    If they play anything like they did last night...beating themselves...they've got no chance.

    Yeah, I could believe that. UT is consistently good, and *among* the best teams in the country, but for most of recent (15-20 years, anyway) history, there have been other teams that have been *better* - both in an individual year (except 2005) and over time. Teams like Florida, Oklahoma, USC, Nebraska, etc.

    I don't live in Austin, so I don't see all of that stuff. My fan-hood comes from when I did live there (until I was 9), when both of my parents went to school there.

    That seems pretty reasonable to me - Oklahoma State clearly should be above Mizzou now (much as I hate to say it). Tech could easily slip beneath Florida, at least. Florida made a very good LSU team look bad, and Tech barely hung on to beat a pretty mediocre Nebraska team. I wouldn't be surprised to see your list pretty much as-is, except with Tech in between Oklahoma State and Mizzou. As much as I hate to say it, after watching Florida (sort of) last night, I can't say I'd put anyone as a favorite to beat them on the field. I'd love to see them play Alabama, Texas, Penn State, USC, or Oklahoma, though.

    I'm still pissed about that game. Daniel overthrew 3 or 4 receivers that game, something he almost never does. And Danario Alexander...fuck...that ball that bounced out of his hands, into the hands of OSU, that was a game changer.
