Notes

6 Layer BCS Dip. The conferences are beginning to separate themselves more and more. We don't plan it this way, it just happens. Our top 10 teams are basically Southern Cal and the rest of the Southeastern Conference and the Big XII. The second tier of teams includes teams from the Big Ten and the Pac 10. Sprinkle in a few mid majors and the ACC round out the Top 25. The Big East continues to be the BCS punchline of all college football jokes with West Virginia's upset loss to East Carolina 22-3, Akron doubling down on Syracuse on the road, and Connecticut barely escaping Philadelphia with a 12-9 win over Temple in overtime. South Florida is the lone Big East representative at #24.

Coulter/Krugman. Are we truly cursed, or did our quarterback et. al. just stink up the joint last Saturday?

The Suck that is the ACC. We bumped Wake Forest down a few spots to #12 after their scare against Ole Miss (see below). Florida State comes in at #22 after an impressive performance against Western Carolina. We begrudgingly put Virginia Tech at #23 and Clemson at #25, both coming off lackluster performances against I-AA fodder.

Arrrgh! We owe the East Carolina Pirates and coach Skip Holtz an apology. You should have been ranked last week. This week we move you up to #18.

Buckeyes and Deacons. We weren't very impressed with Wake Forest surviving Mississippi on a last-second Sam Swank field goal (but we are glad they pulled it out to bolster the conference's resume), nor were we impressed with the Buckeye malaise as they struggled to get past Ohio U.

Do your worst.
