07:39 AM ET 10.31 | Happy Halloween. [We're] playing off that spirit in the weekly Top 10 list. This week's topic: Scariest players in college football. 1. Anthony Barr, UCLA, LB: The 6-foot-5, 250-pounder has been terrorizing offenses ever since he flipped to defense in 2012. This fall, Barr -- a guy some NFL draft analysts project as a top-five pick -- has 13 TFLs, six sacks and four forced fumbles in seven games. 2. Johnny Manziel, Texas A&M, QB: When you can put a scare into Nick Saban, you're a pretty frightening dude, and the Aggies quarterback certainly is. ... 3. Khalil Mack, Buffalo, LB: An unheralded recruit from Florida who has blossomed into a projected first-rounder, the 250-pound Mack gave Ohio State fits earlier in the season, producing nine tackles and 2.5 sacks and taking an INT 45 yards for a TD.

I thought Clowney was the scariest.

Manziel is probably the most fun to watch.

He scares SOS cuz he can't be sure if he'll be ready to play or not.

Two thumbs up for Khalil Mack of the UB Bulls. He was a one-man wrecking crew against Ohio State. He'll do well in the NFL.

Today, there's a costume competition at work. I'm decked out in my colors (including hat). In other words, I'm dressed as a Vol fan (entered in the superhero category, of course).

Be careful the cops don't see you and pick you up as an escaped convict.

As long as he isn't wearing any Bama gear, he should be ok. :)

If you're taking Wonderlic scores into account, he DEFINITELY is.

Was gonna post the same comment Harley. I have watched him couple times since (Kent St game). He is a man amongst boys a veritable one man wrecking crew.

So, BB9....can you bring yourself to pull for TSUN to win this weekend to help tOSU with strenght-of-schedule?

Must be hard, I know......

Absolutely no way. I have been saying for couple weeks what is now becoming more obvious to the rest of CF and that is that Sparty is the second best team in B1G. Not only will they whip Meatchicken this weekend, but they will go on to run the table @ COC and @ NW home againsty Minny.
At that point they will be 11-1 with their only blemish a road loss to ND which was D'Antonio's fault for pulling Cook late in game. Their Defense is a ****. Their offense is now coming around. By the time they play tOSU in the title game I expect their ranking to be top ten. So that will be a better "win" for tOSU than Meatchicken who sux and will likely lose 2 more games before they see us in the Big House.

On a related note WPS, I have been posting all along that if there is an undefeated tOSU, Oregon, Bama or FSU at the end of the year, I am okay being on the outside looking in for the NC game. Those schools are probably more deserving especially Oregon if they run the table. I know some folks will quible with FSU's schedule (and even Bama's) but FSU has Florida and Bama schedule VA Tech. Our OOC (Cal) does not stack up but I also don't think the B1G is as bad as ESecPN makes it out to be.
