    Looks like Tevin Reese is out for the rest of the season. Huge loss, Baylor will need all their weapons for this last stretch of the season.

    Congrats to Baylor, but I don't think Oklahoma is as good a team as they normally are. So Baylor still hasn't played a truly challenging, solid team. I think that will hurt them even if they manage to end the regular season without any losses.

    If that happens and Ohio State, FSU, and Bama are all still undefeated, I think Bama/FSU is the title game matchup.

    Baylor is a very good team.
    And OU is hardly a bad group.
    They are missing Corey Nelson and the big DT and the passing attack is weaker than usual but that is a top 25 team.

    FSU/Baylor will be the game IMHO because Bama isnt running the table.
    Bama has it's two largest rivals left on the schedule plus a game versus the winner of the SEC East.

    I think there is enough anti-Big 10 bias to keep OSU out.
    At the end of the year FSU and OSU will have SOS in about the 55-60 area.
    Baylor will be about 40.
    Bama would probably end up in the 30s.

    Word is Reese has a fractured wrist and Lache Seastrunk and Glasco Martin were removed from the game for precautionary reasons.

    Luckily Baylor's tremendous depth stepped up, as true freshman Shock Linwood rushed for 183. If Reese misses any time, which is likely, it is not ideal to lose a senior talet such as he but that loaded stable of wideouts now has to step up.

    Clay Fully, Levi Norwood, Robbie Rhodes, Corey Coleman, Jay Lee, and Antwan Goodley all have 4.3 speed and functional wrists.

    Good job Green Bears. Your unbeaten record is still intact for Dec 7th and we need that. Thank you for getting it done!

    If, Baylor can go unbeaten, then it's going to be interesting. I am not a believer in FSU and I went there so this is not a hater thing. I just think they are too light in the britches and a physical team could run them over, kinda like what we saw with Stanford and O last night. They still have Florida in the Swamp at the end of the season and I guarantee you that Florida will not be intimidated. They will come to play so it will be interesting. FSU will have an ACC championship game but that's probably Miami and they don't look like they match up after last weeks game but who knows? It's a rivalry game. Bama still has LSU and they have Auburn in the Iron Bowl, which is like UF/FSU, they don't scare because it's Bama. They also have the SEC championship game, which could be Misso.

    If FSU and Bama win out, then that's the matchup. If one of them doesn't, then that's where a Baylor or an OSU can slip in but I don't think Bama or FSU will win out. In fact, they might both lose and I would not be surprised to see it.

    If FSU meets Bama, then I think that's a bad matchup for the Noles. At this point, it's a 4 horse race between FSU, Bama, OSU and Baylor with Stanford, Missu and probably Auburn looking in.

    If it comes down to OSU and Baylor, it's going to be interesting because the coaches poll plays into the BCS. If it's close between Baylor and OSU, there is a good chance that the Coaches Poll could be the deciding factor. It's going to be hard to see the voting go in favor of Baylor who is playing in what could be considered a down year for the Big 12 vs one of the the top 5 programs in College Football, who btw, will also have gone 25-0 over the past two seasons. I don't see the Coaches overlooking that and voting in favor of Baylor, regardless. Add to that, OSU vs Bama/FSU is a much more lucrative matchup for them then Baylor vs Bama/FSU. That's going to play into this thing as well because at the end of the day, this is all about money and we all know it.

    Going to be interesting.

    The fact we are even seriously talking about Baylor in a national championship game is a tribute to the rise of the program like a phoenix from the ashes.

    IF Baylor wins out they will jump theOSU by strength of schedule, Ohio St. also will probably face a good Michigan St. team in their conference title game, by far their toughest challenge of the year.

    IF Bama loses to LSU or Auburn or both, all bets are off and I think the coaches poll and AP would reward an unbeaten FSU and Baylor with the 1 and 2 slots in the polls.

    I think that if Baylor wins out, they should get the nod over OSU but I'm not sure that will happen. Strength of schedule will be better but how much better? That I don't know. Tech, OkieSt., Texas and all the rest are going to continue to beat up on each other so theoretically, the strength of schedule is going to change. Will it go up or down? No way to tell there. I mean, Baylor has to continue to win and just hope things work out well for them because if the strength of schedule is close, it probably goes to Ohio State. Coaches Poll is going to factor in and you know the Coaches are going to vote for OSU if they stay unbeaten.

    Need to just keep winning. I'm pulling for you Green Bears all the way up until Dec 7th, as I'm sure you know Aiks.

    Texas Tech has run out of steam. Kansas State is coming together nicely. Bill Snyder may get 7-8 wins in a rebuilding year...not bad at all. What a coach

    Texas' defense has 6 sacks, 3 turnovers, knocked the starting QB out of the game in the first half and we're losing. Nice job Mack

    That's kind of the problem for Baylor.
    Who on their schedule truly is a really good team?
    I'm not sure there is one.
    I do think the last 4-5 games they play are all decent teams though. Just not legit top 8-10 quality...IMO.
    That conference has nice depth of mediocre or better teams.

    Your trolling is yawnworthy, seeming OU was the number 10 team in the BCS, LSU was 13. You really need to find a new obsession, your juvenile attempts at trolling are just a waste of bandwidth. So stop trying to hijack threads with your Baylor obsession.

    Deal with it: AJ McCarron leading Bama to third straight title


    Rose Bowl: Ohio State vs. Oregon
    Orange Bowl: UCF vs. Clemson
    Sugar Bowl: Auburn vs. Stanford
    Fiesta Bowl: Fresno State vs. Baylor
    BCS National Championship: Alabama vs. Florida State

    we only can make the Feista bowl

    SO SAD TO BAD

    TOO

    If you're going to troll in all caps and bold, the least you could do is learn the differences in To, Too and Two.
