I played poker the other night with one of FSU's offensive linemen...he says that the defense this year will be brutal...the offensive line is in better shape..not a great O line, but one that is deeper and less banged up than last year's with more experience with the new zone blocking scheme instit...

but whom would you have schools like Akron, NIU, and Marshall schedule if they wish to become a better program nationally? Jason...I'd have them schedule LSU, South Cal, Notre Dame, Auburn, Miami, Ohio State, Michigan, Michigan State, VT, BC...all teams that FSU scheduled when they wanted to make a...

People trivialize how good these schools can be. Tulane is an outstanding team. People who don't think so, obviously aren't very intelligent. MAC schools are competitive. Tulane..Is an outstanding team? Oh bullfeathers!! Tulane, in the last ten seasons is 2-14 against BCS teams...according to your ...

Lincoln HS vs Leon HS is competitive as well.....so what? It's not compelling to folks whose kids don't go to the schools. Watching two untalented teams play each other because they "are competitive" is OK for some, I reckon...but trying to make a silk purse out of this hog's ear is silly....it is w...

That should not be difficult.....BCS conferences are padding their schedules with "Snyder syndrome" teams... The following are playing teams finishing AP Top 25 last year..a sample Akron vs Penn State Central Mich vs VT W. Kentucky vs Georgia N. Illinois vs Ohio St. FAU vs Clemson N. Texas vs Texas ...

Derek...buy a dish and a package! There may be niche markets for folks who would rather watch Akron Vs Memphis than Ohio State vs Notre Dame...but there is no mass interest in that kind of match up. You get a better product by watching Florida High School football on TV (and more people watch it on ...

The local waffle house is always freezing...a friend's son who worked there in college told me that keeping it cold discourages lingering over coffeee reading the paper, etc...they depend on volume and fast turnover in a small footprint store.

LOL...what a mind...VT struggled some before beating a Topo 25 team while TCU was beat by a nobody like SMU and taken to OT twice by other non ranked teams...VT might have lost two games to two ranked teams...but TCU would have lost four or five... You can't go to a good bowl if you do not beat anyb...

Football in 100 years, has never officially declared a national champ...the NCAA still doesn't...AP does, BCS does...so do about a dozen other sources have or still declare a national champ....Is BCS a more valid declarer than AP? AP and BCS, Coach's, etc can declare NC's and any team so declared ha...

And then you'd have VT...which whipped (end of year AP rankings ) West Virginia #5, Louisville #19, BC #18, while losing two games to also ranked FSU and Miami...

Re TCU and Oregon, Iowa, et al...Sagarin pretty well tracks the Vegas line...TCU would be seen as a close match with any of the teams that I mentioned... They, last year were TCU's peers....we'll all have our opinion, but TCU didn't play anybody much and the two best teams that they played, BYU and ...

Apples and Oranges

It's difficult to compare teams in such different environments...I think that Sagarin's "Predictor Score" is about the best that we have to deal with..

Last year, Sagarin had TCU about on the level of Minnesota, Iowa, Oregon, Florida.....good teams all, but not BCS Bowl teams.
