Monday morning BcS Top 25 one-liners

Here you go America, your new No. 1 team–the Auburn Tigers.

Could a win over Southern California boost No. 2 Oregon over No. 1 Auburn?

Two teams have played both No. 3 Boise State and No. 4 TCU, and both head coaches havedodged the question: ” Who is a better team?

Head coach Gary Patterson is very pleased with the No. 4 Horned Frogs’ mentality.

The count for games with fake punts is now up to twofor No. 5 Michigan State.

The No. 5 scoring defense–No. 6 Missouri–will be without its starting defensive nose tackle thanks to a broken ankle.

This one writer has No. 7 Alabama in his No. 5 spot, with an interesting group of teamsrounding out his Top 10.

Utah is patiently waiting for the top ranked teams to make mistakes. The Utes sit at No.8 in the latest BCS poll.

It was a short-lived stay at No. 1 for Oklahoma, which dropped to No. 9 with Sunday’ s new release of theBCS rankings.

No. 10 Wisconsin used a fake punt to win the Heartland Trophy for the first time since 2007.

After losing to Wisconsin two Saturday’ s ago, Ohio State sits behind the Badgers at No. 11 inthe nation, and Terrelle Pryor does not like it.

It seems weird to have a team ranked–No. 12 LSU–that at one point gave up 440 yardsrushing in a game.

Remember No. 13 Stanford? Its only loss was to No. 2 Oregon, and the Cardinalhas its best start in 40 years.

Niles Paul went from zero to hero for No. 14 Nebraska in itsroad win over undefeated Oklahoma State.

Here is No. 15 Arizona’ s report card from Saturday night’ s gameagainst Washington, a game in which Wildcats’ starting quarterback Nick Foles wassidelined because of an injury suffered the week before.

No. 16 Florida State had this weekend off to prepare for a Thursday showdown with N.C. State.

No. 17 Oklahoma State will take on Kansas State this weekend. The Cowboys are just 2-10 against theWildcats in the previous 12 games.

Iowadropped in the polls–to No. 18 in the BCS–but can make some major jumps if it defeatsMichigan State this weekend, which is certainly possible and may even be likely.

Arkansas had previously been 0-2 against Houston Nutt and Ole Miss,before a 38-24 victory propelled them to No. 19 in the BCS rankings.

One of the quietest games from this past weekend was No. 20 South Carolina’ s 21-7 win overVanderbilt. The Gamecocks should expect more impressive victories now that running backMarcus Lattimore is expected to return.

Saying that No. 21 Mississippi State survived a scare on Saturday would be an understatement.

Miami (FL) popped into the BCS standings for the first time this year, coming in at No. 22,thanks to a powerful — and important — win over North Carolina.

No. 23 Virginia Tech is currently leading the ACC, and it does not appear that the Hokies will slowdown.No. 24 Nevada should be favored in each of its games heading into aNovember 26th bout with Boise State.

For the first time since 1993, Bayloris ranked in the BCS. The Bears come in as the No. 25 team in the country. The last time theBears went to a bowl game was 1994, surprise surprise.

    Blitz,
    Oregon is a 7 point favorite over USC. No where close to the 18 points you predicted.

    @SFT
    I know–just bet a parlay taking
    Oregon -7 at USC & Mizzou +7 at Nebraska

  5. Sean Martin says: Oct 25, 2010 2:11 PM

    I think I might have Iowa beating MSU this weekend.

  6. SoFlaTrojan says: Oct 25, 2010 2:24 PM

    Blitz,
    No faith in UF? I think I saw UGA is favored.

  7. edgy1957 says: Oct 25, 2010 2:43 PM

    The answer is: no, a victory over USC will NOT move Oregon past Auburn. The computers will favor Auburn again AND Oregon has topped out on the human polls and would have to hope for a pretty unimpressive win by Auburn and that they can take away Auburn’s first place votes and that Tigers drop down one spot in each poll. They have a 700+ point lead in the Harris and a 110+ point lead in the USA Today but because of the computers, they’re .0300 behind overall. Since the computers can’t be swayed by margin of victory, running up the score right now does them no good but I wouldn’t put it past them to try.
    BTW, blitz, there’s NO WAY that Cam Newton is the #1 overall pick unless every QB that’s in front of him on the boards goes down. At best, he Tebows his way into the first round but there’s no way in hell that he ever moves to the top of the list (Let’s not forget that Tebow WAS NOT the first player or QB taken in the draft or even the first player taken by his team).
    Also, it’s impossible for TCU, Utah AND Boise to win a BCS bowl. TCU and Utah will eliminate one of them from contention for the BCS Buster (That’s if Air Force doesn’t do it to Utah this weekend) and ONLY the TOP BCS Buster is guaranteed a spot. It could up being like last year when they took both of the top 2 and matched them against each other so it means that only 1 will win a BCS bowl like last year.

    @SFT
    am a loyal alum and give $$ annually
    that said I bet my wallet NOT my heart
    the Dawgs are -3–wouldn’t touch that game
    The Gators should play Texas in a bowl.
    2 teams that both will be 8-4 or 7-5. It would get good TV ratings.
    The USC game opening line is +7.5 but remember the lines are just set for betting purposes. Bookies don’t care what the final score is–their job is to keep the $$ as balanced on either side as possible.
    That line will undoubtedly be bet up to double digits by the end of the week. USC’s D will be worn down by the 3rd qtr and they don’t have enough depth to keep that pace.
    @Edgy you said the same thing last week about Air Force possibly derailing TCU—Air Force will get the same drubbing from Utah this week
    I expect BOTH TCU & Boise will be in BCS games and ONLY against each other if they are BOTH in the NCG. One will be in the NCG for sure. Oregon will go down against either USC,
    Zona or the Beavers.

    ****************
    You better go back and READ what I wrote because it’s obviously that your Blitzenheimers has flared up. I said and I quote “In two weeks, Air Force can go a long ways toward determining that BCS Buster by defeating TCU and/or Utah.” Just where do you think that I picked Air Force or said that they’d win? I merely stated that if they did win, it would thin out the herd. You continue to mischaracterize everything that I say.

  10. edgy1957 says: Oct 25, 2010 3:45 PM

    BTW, blitz, are you now backing off your all three will win BCS bowls comment?

  11. blitz4848 says: Oct 25, 2010 5:18 PM

    @ edgy
    you just can’t help yourself can you? You are the personification of a horse’s a$$…….
    you need to read what I said –WHERE does it say you said they would beat them? As long as you continue to try to belittle people you will be foreever know as the BIGGEST A$$hole on CFT!
    I tried to have a civil conversation with you to no avail–you start your name calling and belittling so again I will avoid you–I will refrain commenting on anything you write and I hope you will do likewise. You are the one person I would truly ENJOY knocking on their a$$…..
    I am at the point that I would donate $100 a min to your fav charity and buy your plane ticket here just for the opportunity to pound on your obnoxious a$$ until you have had enough!!!!!!!!!!

  12. blitz4848 says: Oct 25, 2010 5:20 PM

    @Edgy
    BTW–for me or anyone else to mischaracterize EVERYTHING you say would require hiring a blogger to type endlessly for hours to blog people to death……..your exxageration is only outdone by your total obnoxiousness!

  13. edgy1957 says: Oct 25, 2010 6:01 PM

    blitz,
    You really are a piece of work. I can’t help but laugh at how you love to tweak everyone else but you can’t take it yourself.
    Tell you what – IF Cam Newton is the first pick of this or any subsequent NFL draft, I will stop typing to you FOREVER.

    @blitz4848

    10-NCS game will be “Auburn vs TCU/Boise St”
    11-Mich St goes 12-0 and is shut out of NC game

    As a Boise State alumi, I’d love to think your predictions are feasible…but they are not. There is no way in hell that TPTB will let an undefeated AQ get jumped by a mid-major for the NC game. I think they’ll take two one-loss AQ’s over TCU/Boise State/Utah for the big game.
    They hate letting that money slip out of the Big 6 conferences (you remember the bullshit of rematching TCU & Boise State last year…), and if one of them were to be allowed into the NC, that would mean they couldn’t do it again this year if proves necessary. Plus, most CFB fans can’t stand the better non-AQ’s, particularly Boise State…so it’d hurt TV viewership.
    But then again, what do I know? As an Iowa State alumni (grad school), I was absolutely stunned to see the Cyclones bring down the Longhorns….in Texas no less. Actually, I’m still feeling like I must have just imagined the whole thing…☺
