Let me be the first to say: Who gives a fuck?

Yeah, I felt dirty after the game yesterday. I wasn't impressed with the offense in the least bit, and I knew people would say "Well if Bradford didn't get hurt...", but the reality is, a win is a win. Florida needed a last second FG to beat a shitty Ark team at home, Kansas and Nebraska were double-digit favorites and got beat, VaTech was supposedly the best one-loss team and got rolled. As long as you win your games, who cares. Texas doesn't need style points to make it to the MNC. If they win out, they go. It's as simple as that.

If I were you, I'd probably be more concerned about whether or not Ark will end the season with a winning record.

It's like Mack Brown said, "if we're playing poorly and still 6-0, that's pretty good."

It doesn't have to be pretty (and it damn sure wasn't).

Lol I didn't say anything bad about UT. I just wanted you alls input on how it seems that the media are trying to downplay the big 12. My hogs are just fine they are young and getting better every game. Next year look out we will be a team with a shot.

Florida barely beat Alabama. That's pretty sad, too.

if this was in the SEC the media would be saying "wow, what a defensive performance by these two teams" but they're in the big12, so they don't.

I would like to see UT playing better, they are definetely capable of better than what they put out yesterday.

But I agree that a W is a W, and while I would normally be nervous, with everybody losing and Florida barely topping Arkansas...it doesn't really bother me.

Tech should be ranked higher than OU. Tech has actually beat a ranked team. All that being said, I think Texas is benefiting from last year and a high pre-season ranking. Texas has not been playing well at all this year and if they continue, I think they are going to get beat. By someone in conference, at the conference championship, or in the MNC, if they don't turn it up a notch, they will get beaten.
If they do get beat, hopefully its in the MNC game.

No shit! But they have a looooooooong way to go, especially playing the way they have been. I'm not impressed at all, and with Mizzou, OSU, Baylor, and aggie still left, they need to get it together. None of those are wallflowers...

First off you aren't in tune enough with what's really going in in CFB to know the difference between Bama and Arkansas.

Second I've seen some of your outlandish claims on this site lately from UFC to CFB predictions and trying to sound like you know what's going on...and you were off base but I didn't bother to correct you.

And let me know when LSU finds something that resembles any kind of offense and how they are going to beat the piss out of Bama.

I know you try to follow it as best you can but it's best to lay off claims about what's going on/going to happen until you really understand what's going on and know the pulse of CFB. I would stick to rooting for your brother and the Boswell bears or whatever HS he's going to.

I misread the television. Outlandish UFC claims? I don't even think I've commented on the UFC in a while. I guess we'll just have to wait and see about Alabama. I still say that they're overrated.

That's my point exactly...even if you misread the television if you were really in tune with what's going on in CFB you would know if the #1/2 teams were playing and it's "sad" for Florida to beat that team by a FG, it's like UT playing Baylor and instead of BU you see OU and thought they barely beat OU by a FG.

Yeah it's a shame the defense doesn't get any credit for doing the job they did. The offense sure as hell didn't show up Saturday.

It's an east coast bias. It goes for every sport we watch. I am sick of hearing about the Yankees, Red Sox, Gator, North Carolina Basketball, Giants, Patriots, everything east coast. The media is pretty much based out of that part of the country so that is all they focus on. ESPN having an east coast bias is the worst of all.

Honestly, all the undeafeted teams in CFB look pretty beatable at this point. It's wide open from here on out. It'll be fun to watch.

As a Texas Tech grad and fan, I realized UT wasn't that great this year when they had trouble in Austin with Tech with Taylor Potts giving them the ball back every other possession.

Texas / OSU will be a tough game for them, and I think Mizzou will put up more of a fight than rankings show too.

Tech with Sheffield at QB would've probably stomped OU and UT silly the way they were playing Saturday.

But, that's why I always tell everyone, "that's why they have to play the game." If on paper mattered most, they wouldn't play at all.

I personally think the Big 12 is a bit weak this year compared to the SEC. It's okay it moves in cycles. UT won't win the NC this season, not unless they start playing a whole hell of a lot better overnight.

Anything else to add now that any credibility you might, or might not have had, jumped head first out the window?

We both know it would make aggie's season if they won, right?

I guess I just don't see the same reason's to be cocky this year like you do.

I remember that. Was it two or three seasons ago though? UT definitely needs to come out swinging furiously the next few weeks. Their offensive playmakers need to get on the same page and put up some major points just in case somebody wants to try and take the championship game away from them. Hopefully defense and special teams will continue to play as well as they have been.

3 years ago (I think) the aggies took McCoy out on a cheap shot by the sideline. Year before last, they beat a pretty high-ranked UT. Last year, UT beat them like a rented mule. I'm hoping it's by 60 this year, but you just don't ever know. Kyle Field is not a fun place for visitor's.
