Nebraska is only favored by 10 at Minn!!?? Easy moneys mates.

Ark st is 0-10 on 4th down this year, so they have gone for it that many times and its October 22nd. And they are 0-10 on their attempts to convert on 4th down

HELLO!!!

Did i hear that right?

Ragin' Cajuns put the hurt on the Red Wolves last night. UL-Laf's got some defensive allstars. If they put crawdads on their helmets, they'd be a full scale crawfish boil.

JD needs a tranquilizer.

Wait, why is he fretting. He didn't finish last in Week 8. Some other dummy did.

Either BYU or Stanford will beat ND. 9-3 is still a great season though, considering the QB situation.

If at first you don't succeed you may want to try again once more and then put a stop to it.

True enough, but given the bowl season and CC games we have 11 weeks left.

OK, you're CBS. You've got first pick of SEC games on Saturday. Options include
1. An unranked 4-3 Vandy team at 14th ranked TAMU, with Johnny M returning to the grid iron after getting his shoulder boofangled last week in their 2nd loss of the season. Viewer interest high, pre-kickoff.
2. #21 UCSe (5-2) at #5 Mizzou; baddass D vs who-the-heck-are-these-guys-they-sure-play-ball. Viewer interest high - Can the not-really-southeasterners beat yet another ranked SEC team (USCe being perceived as their last real hurdle to the SECCG)? Intangibles include possible battle of the back-up QBs adding unpredictability, and one of the B12's minus-2s "disproving" the SEC CFB myth of "superiority."
3. Unranked 4-3 UTK at #1 Bama. Viewer interest confined to Bammers, Bama bandwagoners, folks "scouting" Bama with an eye on the last BCS NCG, die-hard Big Orange faithful, and channel surfers bored with the other CFB game broadcasts.

So, which game does CBS pick for it's big Saturday broadcast? Why the 3rd choice of course. The one least likely to build viewership, unless the planets' orbits shift, and UTK finds some way to keep it interesting; then, the twitterverse might bring in more eyes.
