    Nah, Wazzu makes it if they win out. Means they would've beaten Washington and presumably USC again.

    On a completely unrelated note, this Celebrity Guest Picker segment on Gameday is about the stupidest, most insulting thing I've seen them do (though admittedly, it's been awhile since I've seen it). What, they couldn't find a James Madison alum that was worthy enough of their high standards had enough social media followers to be their guest picker, so they just got one of their coworkers to dress up like the man and make stupid picks because "I've been dead for 100 years!"? I know they've been losing subscribers like mad, and that little feud between them and UW's head coach about how late Pac-12 games get scheduled is completely uncalled for - and the cupcake thing was insulting. You want to talk cupcake opponents? What the fuck was Alabama doing during the early part of this decade playing teams like the Charleston Southern Buccaneers or the Chattanooga Mocs mid- to late-November? Schedules are set years in advance - you think UW was able to schedule quality OoC opponents back when Willingham and that dumbass from Notre Dame were coaching the dawgs? Fuck no! They were lucky they weren't being scheduled as the cupcake opponents for Alabama and Auburn.

    Playing teams like Penn State, Michigan, USC, Wisconsin, etc in the first week or two of the season?

    Wow - OU slipped by Texas. I didn't think it would be so close.

    BOOMER!

    Hopefully OU can handle TCU. It'll likely be a tough game. OU seems to be all offense and no defense this season. WVU should be able to finish the season with two more wins. Hoping Iowa pulls a major upset too!

    Probably. Iowa is nothing if not inconsistent. And Madison is a much different place to play than Iowa City.

    You or @Krisken have a mission. Gameday will be in Madison next weekend for the Michigan game.

    Get the HF logo on TV. :Leyla:

    This coming weekend? Uh, I'm definitely the wrong person for this mission. I'll be up north drinking beer and playing board games for 3 days.

    Hey, at least if we win out in our division, we have a chance to play USC and reclaim all of our territory from earlier this season. Still eliminated from playoff contention, but after watching Oregon get slaughtered in the final, I'm not sure that's such a bad thing. The last thing this conference needs is even more bad press about the cupcakes we schedule and how we can't beat "real" football teams from "real" football conferences.

    Clemson vs Miami and 'bama vs Auburn should be great games. I hope OU can finish strong against Kansas and WVU, and hang in there for a playoff spot.

    Georgia has had a good season so it'd be a shame if they don't make it to the playoffs.

    BOOMER!

    This is the first year I may be more hyped to watch the Iron Bowl than the Apple Cup.

    Yeah, I am definitely looking forward to it. Saban is a quite a coach, but it's too bad it's not this weekend b/c I am sure Auburn is feeling pretty good right now. If they stomp all over ULM then they might keep the momentum going and give 'Bama a run.

    Welp. So much for that. Grier has a broken finger on his throwing hand. "Several weeks" at this point may as well be the rest of the year. One road game and whatever bowl game is all that's left.
