    Kansas State choking as hard as they can. TCU's got this in the bag.

    Boykin is just ridiculous.

    No idea why TCU totally abandoned the run for much of the game.

    So much for Bill Snyder trusting his defense.

    And the choke is complete

    Gotta think Baylor is the favorite to win the Big 12 at this point. They look the best by far.

    And the Rutgers QB spikes the ball on 4th down.

    Michigan State is such a fraud this year.

    Phew. I had a really good feeling TCU would come back, but man that was nice.

    Boykin is unreal.

    They look good playing a weak schedule like they always do.

    Eh, it's not like Baylor is playing a vastly inferior schedule to TCU. Both are weak. Baylor's margin of victory is impressive nonetheless.

    However...TCU seems to know how to pull out close games. Baylor's the better team, but TCU getting them at home might just be the difference.

    Not over yet but it doesn't appear Jared Goff will be Matty Ice vs. VaTech tonight.

    5 INTs is crazy.

    Baylor should be ranked ahead at this point.

    Jared Goff, you are no Aaron Rodgers.

    [rquoter]Spurrier says he is "resigning, not retiring. I'll doubt if I'll ever be a head coach again, but I might coach in high school or something."

    Spurrier: "Somehow or another, we've slipped. It's my fault. I'm the head coach. It's time for me to get out of the way."

    Spurrier said if players know you're not going to be their coach after such-and-such time, there isn't as much accountability

    Spurrier: "I think the team needs to hear a new message and new voice from a new coach."

    "Yesterday I was a recruiting liability. It's hard to recruit when you're a coach of a certain age" - Spurrier

    Spurrier: "I was best coach for this job 11 years ago but I'm not today. That's the cycle of coaching"

    Spurrier: "I'll just be the Former Head Ball Coach now. This is the best thing for South Carolina FB to start another building process."

    When SC fell to 2-2, Spurrier called AD Ray Tanner and told him he "sensed this was it for me."

    "When something is inevitable I believe you do it right then. Don't wait a week, don't wait two weeks." - Spurrier

    Spurrier: "Our team wasn't quite as good as I thought we were going to be."

    Spurrier said he wanted to give interim coach chance to coach in home game. "When something is inevitable, let's do it."

    Spurrier said biggest(favorite) achievement at South Carolina was 18-game home winning streak

    Spurrier said he'll talk to university president Harris Pastides about serving as special advisor, which was included in recent contract

    Spurrier doesn't regret not doing it after last year: "We got re-energized when we won the bowl game."

    Spurrier said he didn't expect to go out like this. "I envisioned being carried off on players' shoulder pads in Ga Dome after winning SEC."

    Spurrier says he wants no involvement in the search for next head coach.

    Spurrier: "Nothing goes on forever. I've gone on a lot longer than most people."

    Spurrier clarifies he won't be coaching college football again. "It's a game of recruiting as we all know."

    Spurrier: "I don't know if coaching is completely over or not. It is fun being on a team. I doubt I'll be a head coach."

    Spurrier: "OK, let's get moving. I've had enough here." [/rquoter]
