    9 losers in the Top-25 Week 1

    Clemson will drop like 2 spots. NC will drop about 8 Wisconsin will drop about 6 They may give Miami a bone since it was Bama and they'll sneak in at #25. Others should drop from the rankings.

    So don't look now, but in week 1: Big 12 was 9-1 (only loss WVU . . thanks neerland) with wins from all 4 ranked teams (OSU ranked in Coaches). ACC was 6-6 with losses from all 3 of their ranked teams: #3 Clemson, #10 North Carolina, #14 Miami

    Official Game Thread: Missouri State vs. Oklahoma State

    Lots of head scratching by those refs (who should be considered doing auditions for P4): 1. our punt team touches the ball at the 2, MOST knocks the ball into end zone (maybe, looked to stay out), tackled in end zone or 1 yard line, should be MOST ball at the 2. They gave them the 20 as a...

    Boise state

    On the bright side, at least Boise and TU won't be going into our game thinking that since they are undefeated then a win over the Pokes jumps them in (or into) the ranking. Surely, both team have already lost confidence and ability to call 2021 a special season. Not saying they won't get up...

    So many on the site will claim that as a very successful decade as that is their measuring stick.

    Doesn't say he has COV so will be good to go the rest of the season. Says he's held out. Maybe just contact tracing ? Quarantine ?

    Is this the deepest (most talented) team we've had?

    Then you missed the '81 (or '82) where we let 0U come back aided with a KO off Chris Rockers facemask for an unintentional on-side kick for the win in the final minute . . . . .

    Is this the deepest (most talented) team we've had?

    Agree with all that. In the past we relied on Offense Stars to out score anyone and enough D to be good or better than good. This year the D talent and depth is probably the best ever. Offense has good depth but no proven Stars. So overall "deep and talented" considering Offense AND Defense...

    Big 12 Realignment thread, 2021 version

    Unfortunately CoCo is correct. Why would any team come join the Big12 w/o some very very stringent exit clauses and long term GOR ? Unless they think Big12 is a stepping stone to getting into one of the P4 16 team conferences of the future. But the bright side, our GOR rights w/o 0U/uT won't...

    Big 12 Realignment thread, 2021 version

    Guess I'll need a little more dialogue from you. My point is that Big12 gets the PAC CST games and but an Alliance with BIG does the same thing = bad. Not sure what "waiting" has to do with those points.
