    Does your school have a football team?

    Are they any good?


    After beating the Buckeyes, my team sits atop the Big 10!


    please share

    You dirty, rotten Nittany scum ! You just got lucky...all thanks to that lousy interception. Bah ! :mad:

    PS : By the way, Young and Skynyrd made up and even did a few gigs together, as a goodwill kind of thing. But yeah, Young was spot on !

    I don't know how to feel. The football team at the university I've just started working at this fall (WVU) just beat my alma mater's team (RU). :frown: It's tough having split loyalties like that. (Then again, my alma mater's team sucks, so this is no surprise that everyone beats them). I guess I better be careful what sweatshirt I wear outside on game days, though. :bugeye: :rofl:

    Yeah, the sack/fumble recovery, fourth-down conversion, and OSU's scoreless second half were pretty lucky too. :biggrin:

    Don't confuse the poor girl. Gale, a "ranking" refers to the team's standing relative to other teams in the country. It's that number you'll often see in front of other teams' names when you're reading the box scores.

    My school's football team sucks, although we have sent players like Brian westbrook, Brian finneran, and Howie Long to the pros. In 1 month though College BBall starts and my school is supposed to be ranked in the top 5 in the nation.

    My school doesn't have a football program, so I root for the same team I've been rooting for since I was a kid - the hometown Trojans. They've been doing pretty well the last couple of years.

    Pa has to win a few every now and then, right ? I mean...the odds catch up, don't they ? Is it a decade yet, since the Rose Bowl ?

    <okay, now you're going to respond with Pa's winning record....blah, blah >

    You totally have to give it up for Nebraska 4-1 after last season. We almost beat Texas Tech but isntead we intercepted and fumbled on the same play with just over 1 minute left when we could have easily just took a knee and run the time out. Instead TT took it down to the red zone for a double hurried pass to a double covered reciever for the LUCKY win. Nebraska came back from 21-0 to almost win against 15th ranked TT what a game to watch but what a tragic ending. :eek: Anyways it is good to have the same fire back in Nebraska after 3 years of it being gone.

    The Big 12 is a joke right now. I'm glad Callahan seems to be turning his program around, but there is no excuse right now not to win at least nine games in that conference. It's sad, too. Texas is probably going to steamroll through every team it faces this year (except Ohio State) in the regular season and end up in the Rose Bowl, only to be sacrificed to a much better USC team. I'd much rather watch a more deserving ACC or SEC champ. If Virginia Tech, Florida State, Georgia, or Alabama (heck, even Penn State) manages to run the table and gets passed over by Texas, another crime has been committed like Oklahoma getting in over Auburn last year and getting in over USC the year before, only to be thoroughly dismantled both years. They should bar all Big 12 and Big East schools from the championship game until those conferences can get their acts together.

    Back to Nebraska, though. I like Callahan, and I hope he gets you guys a bowl win this year. In fact, I actually like Texas and I hope they win their bowl game, too. I just hope it isn't the Rose Bowl, because I'm pretty certain that USC would stomp all over them, as would Va Tech and possibly a few other schools.

    If you guys missed the USC/Notre Dame game, you might have missed one of the all-time classic finishes in college football. This one is up there with the Doug Flutey hail mary and the Stanford band play. To pull out a win after the Notre Dame fans rush the field thinking they've pulled out a win . . . wow.
