College Football Thread

Go hogs!Today Arkansas goes against Ole Miss, which is coached by ex-Arkansas head coach Houston Nutt.

As blakeingle pointed out on twitter, this will likely be Nutt’s last season with the Rebels.  This saddens me.  I’ve never heard a sentence from Nutt that wasn’t classy to the fullest.  He was a good coach at Arkansas and got a very raw deal with the whole Mitch Mustain situation.  I always felt bad about the way Houston Nutt got treated here.  There was even a small part of me that felt he deserved to beat us in the years after his departure.

Still, I wouldn’t trade Bobby Petrino for anybody, and I’ll still be rooting hard for my hogs today!

I’ll also be cheering loud for #16 Michigan State against #6 Wisconsin (this will make Ed happy).  Should be a helluva game.  Would love to see a non-SEC top 10 team fall…which is why I’ll also be pulling for #25 Washington to beat #8 Stanford.  It looks like Arkansas can run the table up until they run into #1 LSU at the end of the year.  But Arkansas has had LSU’s number the last few seasons (and has even knocked them off the #1 spot).  It’s certainly not an impossible game for the hogs.  And if enough top 10 teams lose…who knows, eh?  :)

Texas doesn’t look to be playing this week.  Neither is Oklahoma.  I guess my villain this week will have to be #4 Oklahoma State.  Go Missouri Tigers!!!

This week’s question: which team stands a better chance of going to the national championship: Alabama or LSU?  Also, which top 10 team will not be in the top 10 come the end of the season?

    If the game was in death valley I would ride with LSU, but since it’s at Bama I say it is 50/50. I don’t like the fact that Bama is starting a QB with so little experience against such a great LSU defense. If Bama wins it will be thanks to Richardson and Saban. Forced to pick, I am going with LSU.
    I doubt Clemson finishes as a to 10 team…

      I hear you. ‘bama would’ve been my pick before the injury. Both ‘bama and LSU look scary as all hell.

      And Clemson would be my pick as well.

    have to respectfully disagree. I heard the call-in on 103.7, he let Wally Hall get the best of him. He must the last person in Arkansas that paid attention to Wally Hall. Also, I like Clemson as a top 5 team. I’m picking Oregon as falling from the top 10. Road games at Washington and Stanford, at home against USC. Then the postseason. Plus they’re already a 1 loss team

      Good arg on Oregon. Still not sold on Clemson in the top 5.

      I didn’t hear that call with Wally. :( It would certainly have been an exception to his norm as far as I can see.

    Another slow start for the Hogs…

    What part of Arkansas are you from? I grew up in Ozark.

    • http://freethoughtblogs.com/wwjtd JT Eberhard

      Mountain Home. :) We’re practically neighbors.

      • Andrea

        I’m sorry ;)

  • Blake

    Looking much better now.

      Geez…Arkansas has GOT to stop doing this to me.

      Can I count on you to root against Wisconsin with me? :)

  • John Eberhard

    How ’bout them HAWGS?!?

    • Holly

      Glad to have another conference win. Could have been prettier but I’ll take it.

  • Blake

    Of course, I hate Wisconsin. Cost me some $ in the Rose Bowl last year…

    LSU making a strong case.

    • http://freethoughtblogs.com/wwjtd JT Eberhard

      Jesus Christ, LSU looks scary…

      • Blake

        The scary thing is they have been doing that all season. Did you just say “Jesus Christ”?

  • http://freethoughtblogs.com/wwjtd JT Eberhard

    Muahahahahahahahahaha!!!

    Oklahoma in trouble! This is about the only time I’ll ever root for a Texas team.

  • John Eberhard

    Wisconsin went down

    • http://freethoughtblogs.com/wwjtd JT Eberhard

      I saw! So did #3 Oklahoma! :D

    This is so creepy. My roommate, a very active Atheist here in Tallahassee, is from Mountain Home. You are from Mountain Home. Another Atheist I know from OK Cupid is from Mountain Home. What is it about that place? I grew up in Batesville, only 70 miles away, and I seem to be the only Atheist to come out of that place….
