  2. Ike: 9 catches for 92 yds. and a TD

    E. Graham: 19 carries for 92 yds. rush and 13 catches for 99 yds. rec.

    Combined they accounted for 290 of TB's 422 total yards and were involved in 41 of TB's 66 total plays. That's wrong and dumb!!!

  3. Intersting: (From the JAX Times-Union)

    Kentucky coach Rich Brooks was upset last week when oddsmakers made the eighth-ranked Wildcats a touchdown underdog to No. 14 Florida. Turns out the bookmakers were right. Many had the Gators as seven-point favorites Saturday, and UF narrowly covered in a 45-37 victory over Kentucky, but not without some confusion at the end. The Wildcats scored a touchdown on the game's final play when Andre Woodson passed to Keenan Burton. Yet rather than attempt an extra point or a two-point conversion, the Wildcats slowly walked off the field. According to NCAA rules, "if a touchdown is scored during a down in which time in the fourth period expires, the try shall not be attempted unless the point(s) would affect the outcome of the game." The lack of an extra point meant those who took the Wildcats and the points lost their bets. At the MGM Mirage in Las Vegas, people went "nuts" when the final score flashed on the screen, said sportsbook manager Jeff Stonebeck. "That cost a lot of people a lot of money," he said. "We took lots of $5,000 and $10,000 bets on that game."

  5. My mom tells me that Bruce is going to be at Monday night football tonight.

    They are going to have a whole bunch of soldiers who have been to Iraq bringing out the flag pre-game and Bruce is going to be one of them.

  6. TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- A prankster placed a for-sale sign on Florida State coach Bobby Bowden's yard last night after archrival Miami defeated the Seminoles 37-29 with 13 points in the final 1:15.

    Bowden said it reminded him of his days in West Virginia in the 1970s when he was once hung in effigy as well after a loss.

    Florida State (4-3, 1-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) has now lost 10 of its last 14 league games after losing its second straight Saturday.

    Bowden chuckled at the joke and said he'll save the sign for when he's ready to move.

  7. That's awesome R.A. I'll be watching. Somebody should text him when he is on T.V. I bet he reaches down to answer it. Ha.

  9. Mike Hart is a tremendous RB. However, having 2 losses under his teams belt and having missed this last game vs. ILL, it's absurd to hear his name in the Heisman talks. What if he were to have actually played in the ILL game and got only like 20 yards and fumbled twice. It's unfair to basically count that game as if he were to have averaged his season stats.

    My prediction if Tebow is to continue his stellar play and the Gators win out is that he will somehow still get shafted out of the Heisman.

    They'll give it to Woodson or some garbage guy on a team with less losses and who is an upperclassman. If he were to get invited to NYC and have that happen, I hope he'd smash the podium. (However we all know he's too good to do that.)

    For some reason I just think the powers that be are the worst. Case in point, Rex being housed by Eric Flippin Crouch.

  13. CBS' Dennis Dodd:

    I have to respond to this feedback from "Bubba Prohn" on my Sunday Seven story.

    Les Miles should be dunked in the Mississippi? I've said it before and I'll say it again, that play call was not that big of a gamble. Dodd said (LSU's Demetrius) Byrd caught the ball with 1 second left? Not true Dodd. If anybody, including Dodd, actually watched the play CLOSELY, Byrd caught the ball and hit the ground with four seconds left, slid a ways, and as he was getting up the clock stopped at 1 second. Being as it was played in Death Valley, I would bet my life savings that had that pass been incomplete, juggled or whatever, the person running the game clock would have hit that switch a lot faster than he did. So no matter what would have happened, as long as there wasn't an INT, LSU was going to have a chance at a field goal.

    Me: So Bubba you're going to base your argument on a friendly timekeeper at LSU?

    That's incredibly stupid. I've heard that argument from a couple of people since Saturday night. What if Byrd had bobbled the ball and caught it? What if the defender had tipped it? What if it was a jump ball, and the players fought over it until the clock ran out? What if there was an interception?

    Your argument is an incredibly ignorant one. The call was extremely reckless and should have ruined LSU's season. Not only was the decision wrong, it was doubly dumb because the ball was snapped with eight seconds left! Are you kidding me? I would have at least called a timeout to talk about it.

    Using your logic, Cal's Kevin Riley was relying on a friendly timekeeper too when he scrambled against Oregon State on Oct. 13. You've got to watch the whole country and the whole game.

    I'd take your life savings now but I'm not sure it would buy me lunch.
