    WTF is up with the Land Thieves? First they edge Baylor, now they're down 7 at home to Iowa State with 12:45 to go. I love seeing it, but it's certainly not a good look for the conference. Does put UT's tight win last week in a different perspective.

    Go Frogs! Hook 'Em!

    Kind of a meh week of college football, but again, those are often the weeks where crazy stuff happens.

    TCU/WVU is a nice game and Miami/FSU should be fun as well.

    But LSU/Florida lost some intrigue when LSU dropped the Troy game and as UF continues to struggle to find anything resembling a coherent offense. Washington State and Oregon could be interesting. I'm having trouble believing that WSU is really a borderline top-ten team, but their defense has looked far better than any other in the Leach era in Pullman, so perhaps they really are that good. But Oregon being without their starting QB might keep them from being as competitive in that one.

    TCU will win the Big 12. Oklahoma has not been impressive outside of the Ohio State game.

    Haven't kept up with them really, other than watching the last bit of the Baylor game, but it's hard to believe this is the same defense we saw against Ohio St.

    LSU/UF has zero intrigue other than how much closer to the unemployment line each coach will be.

    Unless they have a huge letdown, Washington State will demolish Oregon (because they don't have a legit QB after Hebert).

    Iowa State is really trying to pull this off. Just got a touchdown that, XP pending, will put them up seven with a little more than 2:00 to go.

    They were driving just outside the red zone and I assumed they would just try to bleed clock and kick a field goal to go up three, but instead they took a shot into the end zone and it paid off.

    Fun game. They played Iowa tough, played UT tough, they're obviously not the usual ISU team.

    eta: Lazard is a player. No idea how fast he is, but he looks like the kind of guy (6-5, 220) who could bulk up and be a new-age TE in the NFL.

    eta2: ISU were 31pt dogs. I wish one of their players would have grabbed their flag and stuck it at midfield.

    Nothing makes me happier than watching punk-ass Baker Mayfield fail.

    At the risk of reading too much into one win, that feels like the type of win that could help Matt Campbell and Iowa State get over the hump. It seems like any successful head coaching change always has that one win that creates something of a seismic shift and gets the team to believe, rallies the fanbase, and really gets the ball rolling.

    Dear god Texas Tech games are just unbearable. TCU is supposed to kick off right now on the same channel, and there's 11+ minutes left in the Tech game. Go play flag football somewhere else, you tortilla tossing jagoffs.

    That would have been glorious. There aren't a lot of people on Earth with the scumbagery level of a Baker Mayfield to do that.

    That isn't Tech's fault. The officials were reviewing everything in the first quarter which caused this massive discrepancy in time.

    Shutup (I wasn't watching). Holy crap, they ran the ball 43 times? Kingsbury have a stroke or something?

    Kingsbury has been using the running game a lot this year.

    Hey, with the Aggies gone I have to hate 1 Texas team. Tech got the nod pretty much after the Blake Gideon game.

    Not quite the same, but they did actually plant the flag of the state of Iowa at midfield.
