Thank God South Carolina is playing an afternoon game.

draftguru151 10-15-2012 11:01 AM

Stephen Morris isn't expected to play this week so instead of losing by 2 TDs Miami is going to lose by 6.

Don Vito 10-15-2012 11:46 AM

South Carolina/Florida is going to be so much fun to watch.

UT is going to beat Bama I think.

thenewfeature06 10-15-2012 11:52 AM

DG don't be so sour FSU struggles when they get into conference play even though this is one of there better teams... and you guys are at home so thats good too.

Duke and NC actually a good matchup? wtf mate

Is this the same Vols team that just gave up 41 to Mississippi State and is 0-3 against every meaningful team from the SEC so far? Yup it could happen.

SolidGold 10-15-2012 12:03 PM

KSU vs WVU is the game I am most excited about. It is a matchup of the two top Heisman contenders. KSU's defense should be able to give WVU some trouble the their offense should really slow down the tempo of the game.

Don Vito 10-15-2012 12:03 PM

Don't say too much, you will give me more to quote if somehow I remember on Sunday.

JRTPlaya21 10-15-2012 12:04 PM

Quote away my friend. They have the weapons on offense but their defense leaves a lot to be desired.

Don Vito 10-15-2012 12:07 PM

I am throwing it out as an extreme upset. Saban teams rarely lay eggs against lesser teams but i think UT has a chance.

JRTPlaya21 10-15-2012 12:24 PM

Definitely. Bama has avoided every major QB on their schedule up until now so I think their offensive trio has a chance to do damage if they can protect Bray.

Don Vito 10-15-2012 12:28 PM

UT definitely has the best line that they have faced all year that is what I think could be the difference. Could be a huge opportunity for Millner to showcase himself.

Giantsfan1080 10-15-2012 12:53 PM

I don't know why but I'm a little nervous going to play at Temple. WEe should win it's going to be another close one.

sbh15 10-15-2012 01:04 PM

Florida's chances depend in a big way on the health of their injured line players. Harrison and Wilson need to be at full speed, as does Dominique Easley. I believe Jelani Jenkins should be healthy for this weekend as well

CashmoneyDrew 10-15-2012 01:46 PM

I don't think UT has any shot. And it's a shame, because we have so many good recruits coming. I just hope it's a close game. Sad but true.

Franklin wouldn't have made any differance in the Missouri game and instead of beating Arkansas 52-0 they'd beat them 52-17. No love for Denard Robinson?

BuckeyeDan17 10-15-2012 04:00 PM

Given our defensive woes, essentially every game going forward with the exception of Illinois, scares me.

OSU's not even ranked in the BCS standings.

I failed to notice those rankings were reflective of the BCS. I wasn't actually complaining, more of like, a dumb little joke thing.

We'll play hard, but don't have the offense to match ur defense.even though we play tough on d, we give up a butt load of yards.

Yeah you're not going to be able to run the ball on us and I'm pretty sure you have no passing game.

Since I know everyone on here loves watching Penn State, they're playing at Iowa at 8pm on the Big Ten Network.

If you've seen Miami's attendance this season it isn't really a home game, at BEST for Miami 60/40 split. They have been selling tickets for $9 today and tomorrow. Also, Miami hasn't beaten FSU at home since the Chris Rix era.

P-L 10-15-2012 06:41 PM

Michigan is going for their 900th win this week. Also looking to snap a 4-game losing streak against Michigan State.
