Shocking Happienss

Last night was a roller coaster of emotions.  The Colts scored first then went down 24-7 before scoring before the half, kinda like 2006.  Then the Pats stretched thier lead to 31-14 in the fourth and all seemed over....but Peyton Manning and the Colts Defense would finally step up.  The play of the game was obviously the 4rth and 2 the Pats went for at the end of the game but the defense was playing well enough to stop them there and force the turnover on downs.  The Colts finally took the lead back and won 35-34.  Many people say this was lucky...to go 9-0 you have to be lucky.  This was a great game, and the Colts did what good teams do, they found a way to win.  The next 2 weeks will be tough but if they win those 2 I believe home field acvantage will be all wrapped up.

Missouri

As I said in this weeks poll, Missouri was untested.  The Nebraska 4th quarter was prrof that this team is a year away and overachieving.  The Race in the Big 12 North is down to Nebraska and Kansas, and I think with the QB play of Reesing Kansas will come out on top.

My Top 25 in College Football

1. Alabama- the new darling of College Football
2. Florida- everyone's preseason pick but has shown some weaknesses lateley. 
3. Texas- if they play one 60 minute game they could have been number 1
4. Boise State- the team most likely to be undefeated and not be in the BCS Title Game
5. LSU- One pitch out from losing at Miss State
6. Houston- The Non-BCS team most likely to be left out of a BCS Bowl
7. USC- Still in the hunt if the offense comes around
8. Virginia Tech- Jumped back in it after scoring 31 in the rain against Miami. 
9. Cincy- The Big East Beast......
10. TCU- They play BYU and Utah still but huge win at Clemson
11. Oklahoma- Still not sold on this team until they beat a good team
12. Iowa- Best Big 10 team 
13. Ohio State- Battling it out with Penn State for second Best team
14. Penn State- See Above
15. Kansas- Will win their side of the Big 12 
16. Michigan- The fourth best Big 10 Team....their defense needs t improve
17. UCLA- Am I on the only one on this band wagon, they are the ONLY undefeated team in the Pac-10
18. Oklahoma State- Looked better this week
19. Auburn- An Auburn team that can score...this could be the SEC spoiler team
20. Missouri- Untested
21. Oregon- Since I think Boise State is the 4rth best team the first loss can be overlooked 
22. BYU- Not as good as TCU
23. California- Who knew that Golden Bears could lay golden eggs, their offense looked like the Cleveland Browns. 
24. Miami- Proved that they are a year away from being back
25. Notre Dame- Offense is great!!!! Defense is not

Just outside Mississippi, Nebraska, South Florida and Georgia Tech
