    Well .... they ARE a Group of 5 team, not a team playing Big Boy football ...
    However, they will tell you that they can play Big Boy Football ... just ask them.

    So tired of the , We beat so and so.
    I just wish they would play a team that actually plays them as another school on the schedule vs a bowl game.
    In the Bowl game UCF is Up, thier in a Big bowl game (why they are allowed in a Big NY day game is beyond me, guaranteed) while the other team is not wanting to play in this lower Bowl game.

    That time will come soon when the Big Boys take that game seriously and start kicking thier a$$.
    Then the excuses will come out.

    Amazing. Two weeks left and any of the top ten have a scenario where they could be in it.

    Looks as if the top 3 teams are pretty much set for this week.

    Alabama, Notre Dame, and Clemson are the three best teams. IMO, it comes down to Georgia and Michigan for the 4th spot. Is Central Florida number 5?

    OF COURSE, league championship games can mess that scenario up for all of the teams but one (Notre Dame). I also NEVER count out Auburn against Bama, even though this season that seems highly unlikely. But, going into the last week of the regular season, there is little argument about the best 3 teams in the nation.

    You also never know with the Ohio State vs Michigan game ....
    This year looks like an easy win for the Long Starved Wolverine Fans ... (Buckeyes have won like 16 of the last 18 I think ... Bucks lost when Tressel left and Luke Fickell stepped in and I think at least once when Tressel was running the show.)

    I don't expect the Buckeyes to win this time around, unless they can Out SCORE them ... I saw a lot of good offensive plays that Indiana ran against them ... I had No hope till I saw that game yesterday.

    IF and thats a Big IF, The Buckeyes win, the Big Ten will be out of the playoffs, at least in my opinion.
    Georgia would like that.

    As for UCF, are they #5 ? NO.

    Hey guys,
    Whats the rule about fumbling the ball forward and recovering it ? (In College)
    Isn't it the same as the NFL where you can't advance a forward fumble (it goes back to the place it was fumbled if the fumbling team recovers ) Think the Kenny Stabler play.

    In the NFL the rule is you can't advance a fumble when it is the 4th quarter or maybe the last few minutes of the 4th quarter. Anything before that is fair game.

    Lots of slow starts this weekend against overmatched opponents. I did not get a chance to watch any because of work, but that is probably for the best. I would have lost it being tied 10-10 to the Citadel at halftime. lol

    So in college its whatever happens happens ?
    I really wish both used the same rules ....

    Both need to adjust the Face Mask penalty to the way it use to be ... incidental 5 yard, Flagrant 15.

    Here is the rule in the NFL from www.nfl.com:
    Article 5. Fourth-Down Fumble
    If a fourth-down fumble occurs during a play from scrimmage:
    1. The ball may be advanced by any member of the defensive team
    2. The player who fumbled is the only Team A player permitted to recover and advance the ball.
    3. If the recovery or catch is by a teammate of the player who fumbled, the ball is dead, and the spot of the next snap is the spot of the fumble, or the spot of the recovery if the spot of the recovery is behind the spot of the fumble.

      Note: After a change of possession has occurred, the restrictions in (b) and (c) are no longer in effect for the remainder of the down.
    Article 6. Fumble After Two-Minute Warning
    If a fumble by either team occurs after the two-minute warning:

    1. (a) The ball may be advanced by any opponent.

    1. (b) The player who fumbled is the only player of his team who is permitted to recover and advance the ball.

    1. (c) If the recovery or catch is by a teammate of the player who fumbled, the ball is dead, and the spot of the next snap is the spot of the fumble, or the spot of the recovery if the spot of the recovery is behind the spot of the fumble.

    I hadn't realized that that is for 4th down only ... what if its Not 4th down ?

    Now how does that compare with the College rule ?

    Last night’s OU/West Virginia game looked a lot like the Rams/Chiefs game last week. Ironically the OU defensive scores were the difference.
