This Bears team will end with a losing record.

Packers vs Steelers or Ravens in Dallas.

Belichick is thinking long game though. He fucking loves him some draft picks. They gave a fourth for Moss and received a third for him, and now have two picks in each of the first four rounds next year. That gives them a lot of cards if they want to trade for, say, Jackson, who would be cheaper than signing Moss to a new big contract (especially if there is no football next season, as Jackson is younger - a lockout means Moss is 35 the next time he plays after this season).

The Ducks are well capable of stumbling against someone though. It would be typical of the Trojans to ruin them (although nothing about their defence this season suggests they will do anything other than take a raping).

I think Michigan State have a realistic chance of going unbeaten, which is interesting. And would throw the BCS into chaos. And a one loss Alabama gets ranked above TCU or Boise I reckon. Especially as they'll have wins over Auburn and LSU if they run the schedule from here. Of course, if Auburn win the Iron Bowl... (and Cam Newton is seperating himself from the field in the Heisman)

TCU-Utah will be a good game next week. TCU's defence should decide that.

I haven't seen USC this season so I can't comment, but I doubt they are much better than UCLA who the Ducks gave a proper beating.

Michigan State and especially Boise State will have a severe strentgh of schedule problem.

Auburn will lose to Alabama. Auburn's defense is absolute shit, it's just that LSU has NO QB who could take advantage.

If TCU beats Utah then they can book their ticket, their schedule is just about strong enough as it is and beating Utah will just top it off.

If LSU had a proper QB they'd be a team. Even Les couldn't stop them winning.

USC are better than the Bruins. Don't let those wins over Houston and Texas (I mean, Iowa State anyone?) fool you. They leak plenty of points and don't score many. Last couple of weeks they've been appalling. Cal beat them easily and SC destroyed Cal.

It's SC's defence that has cost them. They've lost twice, both by less than a FG and both times giving up over 30 points. And they've won twice whilst giving up over 20 points. They average over 37 points themselves, but can't keep people out of their EZ. If their front four can't put up effective pass pressure, then decent QBs (see Locker and Luck) have torched their secondary. Teams are averaging almost three bills against them in the air. It's ridiculous. They have a lot of new starters back there, but even Shareece Wright has been rubbish. They looked better against Cal though, really stifled them. So who knows. I suspect USC might struggle against the run. LaMichael James ran all over them in Eugene last year, and the Ducks are killing teams on the run this year. They have three genuine threats with James, Alston and Thomas.

If the Ducks run the schedule and Alabama win all their remaining games, TCU and Boise will get punished by Harris and the coaches. Punished. The whole system is so fraudulent, on a human and systematic level.

Frankly, if TCU get ranked above Boise it's bullshit. Boise have won 20 straight games, including wins over Oregon, Oregon State, VA Tech and TCU. They've won 54 of their last 58 games, including two BCS Bowl wins over TCU and Oklahoma. They've beaten Oregon twice in the last three seasons. Baffles me how TCU get ranked above them, even if they beat Utah next week.

And the BCS computers are bullshit. Pure and simple. On the computer results alone they rank Oklahoma 5 and Alabama 12. That's retarded. They rank Missouri 2 and Michigan St 3. Hell, they rank Wisconsin over Bama. Developing models that run purely on single year schedules is pointless. You might aswell just have the human polls. Nothing about the system is satisfactiry until they work out some sort of eight team play-off system around the BCS series.

Les needs to fire the offensive coordinator Gary Crowton! If we had a QD and a offensive coordinator there is no telling how far we would go.

I haven't seen USC this season so I'll wait until this weekend to comment further.

Boise's schedule is too weak and the fact of the matter is TCU and the Ducks have quality games coming up. You see how auburn jumped the BCS polls after beating LSU.

I hear what you're saying but based on strength is schedule if TCU and the Ducks win out they're in IMO. Alabama won't jump then even if they win the rest of the way especially if there are 3 undefeated teams which seems like it could happen, the NCAA wouldn't take that chance.

The NCAA don't really have a say. The polls are still the biggest factor, and by the end of the season the computers will be liking Alabama again if they go unbeaten. If the Ducks win out they're obviously in. They'll do well in the polls and the computer. I'm not sure I agree on TCU's schedule anyway. Come the end of the season a win over Utah won't mean much. Boise still have to play Hawaii, Fresno and Nevada, and the computers won't punish them too much for that. Both sides should go to BCS games though, assuming they don't slip up and lose. It'll jsut be a matter of one of them relying on an at-large invitation (don't be dreadfully surprised if they end up playing each other for a third straight year)

The other factor with TCU is, what if Utah lose twice? Same thing that is happening to Boise with VA Tech and Nevada will happen to them. Utes have to play Air Force, Notre Dame (at South Bend), and BYU on top of TCU. Not unthinkable they lose two. And beating Utah won't jump TCU up like Auburn beating LSU did anyway. Hell, Utah are unbeaten and they're still only just scraping into the top ten. They'll be irrelevant come December if TCU beat them. The VA Tech thing looked a disaster to Boise, but if they win the ACC things will look better. VA Tech will have wins over NCS, Miami (probably) and Florida State (probably). That can only help Boise.

Alabama are still the best side in college football, and they'll run out the SEC. I think it'll be a hard sell to the polls to place Boise or TCU above them come the end if that happens. Just look at some of the mad shit the polls do in early weeks - two weeks ago TCU beat BYU and Oklahoma beat Iowa State (pre Texas win) and the Sooners jumped over TCU in the polls that week. That makes absolutely no sense. Imagine what will be happening near the end of the season if the possibility looms of either side beating out a very strong BCS team to the national. The polls will go nuclear on them. And if Alabama finish 12-1 (winning the SEC) and hand an 11-1 Auburn their only defeat, then it's probable the computers will jump them over Boise and TCU. And winning the SEC will obviously boost them massively in the final Harris and USAT polls.

Everything that has happened to their advantage (i.e. Oklahama, Nebraska, Michigan etc all losing) has also been to Bama's advantage. I think all of them now want Oregon to lose.

It could be terribly tight at the end of the schedule, with hundredths (if not thousandths) of percentage points deciding top five.

Virginia Tech lost to James Madison, that will hurt Boise down the road big time.

If TCU beat Utah and Utah finished the season with that as their only loss TCU is in. Utah is ranked number 8 tight now and if they beat Air Force away from home this weekend they will jump to number 6 after Nebraska beats Missouri and Michigan loses at Iowa (yes I'm calling to upsets!).

I'll also predict that LSU beats Bama in an upset and Bama beats Auburn, but even if Bama runs the table I can't see them beating out potentially 3 highly ranked undefeated teams especially if South Carolina loses again (they already lost to Kentucky!)

With the teams that Oregon has left to play if they win out there are in the BCS championship game no questions asked.

You're probably right. Nebraska and Iowa are line favourites in both games, mind. And rightly so.

Les will have two weeks to prepare for Bama, so you know he will have readied a hatful of mad shit for them.

I understand very little of these exchanges but they have an arcane beauty that keeps drawing me in so I re-read them. They never become any less impenetrable to me yet somehow achieve a poetry that moves and terrifies me.

I started reading The Road last night and I'm beginning to appreciate just how much you two have influenced Cormac McCarthy.

It seems like my Oregon v TCU prediction is on track for the time being.

TCU need to get past Utah and the Ducks past the Beavers those are the only obstacles I see for them.

You want us all to turn our backs whilst you tug yourself off there?

Alabama still jumps undefeated mid majors if they run the table. The computers will come back to them if they beat LSU and hand Auburn their only loss, they'll play 13 games which gives them an advantage compensating for the defeat, and the human polls will have the SEC champ at number two (at least) if they are one loss.

There's still football to be played. Oregon have two more road games. Boise and TCU will go unbeaten, but I wouldn't be surprised to see neither of them in the BCS. At the moment the computers have Alabama at 15. When they start climbing the computer rankings, added to the human polls that already have them up to 6 in the BCS anyway, then they'll jump non AQs.

Don't hate appreciate, plus I've got money on my predictions.

Anyway, we've both got our opinions on how we think this will unfold so lets wait and see what happens this weekend, some big games coming up.

You have to admit that I'm on fire.

TCU just beat the number 5 team in the country 47-7 plus Les outcoached Saban and Bama are out!

It's Oregon v TCU for the national championship!

Auburn's fate is still in their own hands, although seeing them win in Tuscaloosa is a stretch. And Boise have four games to play to TCU's two, including Nevada who are ranked. The computers won't like them much, but the human polls will probably favour Boise over TCU come the end. Not sure that'll be enough though. Which, as I've said before, is nonsense. Boise are a much better side than TCU. Still, at least this is the last year this particular non-AQ lottery will occur.

I google-translated the bold part into Japanese and got this:

Quote:
彼らはテーブルを実行する場合、アラバマはまだ無敗の半ば専攻にジャンプします。彼らは、LSUと手をバー ン彼らの唯一の損失を倒せばコンピュータに戻ることになるだろう、彼らは2番でSECのチャンピオンを(少 なくとも)あるが、それらに敗北を補償する利点を提供13試合、人間の世論調査を再生します彼らは1敗して いる場合。

再生するサッカーはまだありません。オレゴン州は、2つの道ゲームを持っています。ボイジーとTCUは、無 敗行く私はBCSで、それらのどちらを見ても不思議ではない。現時点ではコンピュータが15でアラバマ州を 持っています。彼らはコンピュータのランキングを登って起動すると、彼らは非AQををジャンプしますし、す でにとにかくBCSで6にそれらを有する人材世論調査に追加されます。
That's pretty much exactly what I understood to begin with. Hollowman and his hipster jargon

Well Nevada just knocked off Boise in one of the craziest games I've ever seen!

Oregon have to get past Oregon State in their yearly Civil War game and it will be tough regardless of the Beavers record.

Auburn will have to beat Spurrier and South Carolina. TCU will abuse New Mexico.

The biggest risk of a loss is Auburn since South Carolina can burn the clock by giving Lattimore the ball over 30 times and will move the chains which will of course keep Newton off the field.

The BCS comes out on top again!

Auburn-Oregon would be a great title game. I think I'd refuse to watch TCU vs anyone.

Giving Lattimore the ball didn't help SC in the Jordan-Hare. Auburn totally shut him down and Spurrier gave up the run game. But the Gamecocks couldn't stop Newton or Michael Dyer. Auburn have been decent against the run all year. But their secondary regularly gets shredded in the air. Any team with Alshon Jeffrey isn't going to overlook that. I think they'll use Lattimore to try and keep the pressure off Garcia (something they couldn't do late in the first meeting - and Garcia gives up all sorts of presents when people are in his face or he feels he has to make big plays).

Well it's Auburn v Oregon, can't argue with that. I'd be interested to see who TCU is matched up against though, I hope it's Wisconsin or Stanford.

It's going to be Wisconsin. The Rose Bowl are on rotation to take the non-AQ this year if they want, and there will be more travelling fans from Texas Christian than the Cards so they'll make that match. The Sugar Bowl have first choice of teams after that, so they'll take Arkansas and Ohio State. That leaves two spaces to fill. Who plays VA Tech in the Orange Bowl and who plays Oklahoma in the Fiesta Bowl. If common sense was the criteria than Stanford would play Oklahoma as it's in Glendale, but I think the Orange Bowl has first pick. Neither Stanford or UConn are attractive to bowl organisers, but I suspect they might go with Stanford to have Andrew Luck. UConn have no national exposure at all. Stanford can't even fill their own stadium in Pac-10 games though, so fuck knows how many will travel the entire breadth of the country to play VA-Tech.

Interesting to see how TCU fares against Wisconsin. They've been dropping points on teams left and right in the Big Ten. Their run game is awesome, and they can switch it up with Tolzien to Kendricks and Toon. TCU had difficulties with Zach Line in the SMU game, he ran up and down the field against them. Wisconsin have several power backs much better than him. I think this could get a lot messier than people suspect. If the Badgers have watched how Boise dismantled Dalton last year then they should compensate for their suspect secondary by feigning the blitz and dropping back. Dalton rushes himself all the time and is his own worst enemy. He'll go after the Wisconsin secondary and give up turnovers.

I reckon Auburn will smash Oregon too. Their front seven is a wall and LaMichael James won't be going through it. Can't see Oregon beating them in the air, and can't see the Ducks stopping Newton. Hopefully it'll be high scoring as Auburn usually take a bend-not-break philosophy to their defense, but I don't see Oregon handling Auburn like they did their Pac-10 opponents. No way Oregon would have got out of the SEC unbeaten.

Cam Newton best prospect since Tim Tebow perhaps watched the game last saturday and he is just so composed in the pocket, obvious NFL star of the future!

Anyway, I don't think you should write off the Ducks so easily, I still believe their defence has major flaws. Farely is a beast but I think the Ducks spread/no-huddle offense can expose Auburn's weak DBs.

I'm really looking forward to Wisconsin v TCU as well. It will either be a Badger blow out or a really close and exciting game and I have no idea which way it will go.

I've only just recovered from that mauling the Bears received Sunday night. Bears weather my arse. The Patriots proved that they are serious Super Bowl contenders now and good luck to em I say. Brilliant performances against the Bears and the Jets.

Can't really say I am surprised at the way Pats have come back since the start of the season. The league is really a mis-mash at the moment. I would love to see neither the manning brothers make the playoffs.

I'm a Bears fan, but we're a plastic 9-4 team. Two dubious split decisions against the Lions, the Boys and Packers self-destructed, and we only stumbled past the Bills. We basically have one good win, against the Eagles. When we ran into half decent sides, like the Giants and the Pats, we got totally blown out. We might creep into the playoffs as Aaron Rodgers is suspect right now, but we'll take a pants-on fucking in January.

Think the Bears have a decent defence and Hester with punt/kick off returns is a class apart but their offence is weak and so the others have to be on top form week in and out for the Bears to succeed.

They did it a couple of years ago and Cutler is a far better QB than Grossman. The way things they may get a bye in the first week of the playoffs with the West being so weak.

Defense and special teams will always be our bread and butter. They don't win Superbowls though. You need something going forward, and I don't trust Cutler. It's not all his fault, he doesn't have a massive selection of weapons around him and Martz's schemes don't always offer sufficient protection. We win when we run the ball because Cutler isn't able to move the ball in increments. Sometimes it's the big play or nothing with him, and we are shocking on third downs. Hester is obviously a nuclear weapon (and congrats to him on the record last night) but he detonated on Indy four years ago and had no back up to follow through.

Four years ago we had home field advantage and played two teams who had lost 13 games between them in the playoffs. The NFC was shite that year. We were the only team who won more than ten times, and the rest of the NFC North was .500 or less. We were the best of a complete shambles.

We'll get home field advantage this year but probably won't get the bye. Philly have two home games against the Vikes and Cowboys. We have the Jets at home at then go to Lambeau. Would expect the Eagles to be seeded second behind the Falcons when all is said and done, although we do have the tie-breaker.

Being third means travelling on the road to Philly in the Divisional weekend. I don't see lightning striking twice. Even if it does, we then have the Falcons in the Championship game in all likelihood. You really think we're going to beat Matty Ice in the dome? He's 19-1 in Atlanta as a starter (and will probably be 22-1 by the time we get there). Their defense looks suspect on paper, and they give up yards in the air, but they're solid against the rush and defend the red zone well.

Our record far exceeds our abilities right now. The Patriots and the Giants carved us apart. The Packers and the Eagles are the only teams we have beaten who have winning records, and both of those games were at Soldier Field.

Hell, I'd love it to happen, but there are some really strong teams in the league this year. And we're not one of the top four.
