With Oregon, K-State and Notre Dame all looking very possibly undefeated, we are not in control of our own destiny. We need someone to beat at least two of these teams, and I'll be damned if I can see two losses among the three of them in what's left of the season. USC is pretty much the only hope, ...

I'm sure any of you who watched last nights SC-Vandy game noticed the repeated promos on ESPN for National Wear Your School Colors to Work Day today.

Looking back at last year, what game result do you think was the biggest fluke, based on lucky/unlikely breaks, calls, etc.?

For a charity always asking for money, it seems ridiculous that they would throw a $158,000 "wedding" for two dogs. Even though the items for the wedding were donated, if they have enough donations to do this shit, they don't need anyone's money, in my opinion.
