Stadium and Main: Some Week 9 CFB thoughts

Some Week 9 CFB thoughts

- Pollsters that have Louisville above teams like Florida and Tennessee must be crazy. That, or they missed Louisville’s awesome victory at home against Cincinnati (which required a broken-up pass in the endzone to preserve the win). Beating the worst Miami team in the last quarter-century doesn’t mean you’re Top 5 material. The WVU-Louisville game on Thursday night should be a good one… fun to watch, if nothing else. And since it will likely be a high-scoring, entertaining game, people will push for the winner to play for the National Title. But these teams wouldn’t win any other “major” conference. Look me in the eye (figuratively, of course) and tell me that you think either WVU or Louisville could beat Florida, the team that they might shut out of the BCS Championship game. Ya, didn’t think so.

- The Big 12 North continues its quest to keep the title of “Worst Division in College Football.” Nebraska and Missouri were both beaten pretty handily this past week, and one of them is going to win that division. Zero teams ranked in the AP and BCS polls – nice!

- So Georgia Tech is in the ACC Championship game. Not officially, but it only needs two wins in its next three games. The opponents: N.C. State, North Carolina, and Duke. Their most likely opponent in the ACC Championship is either Boston College or Wake Forest (who play each other this week). How weird is the ACC this year?

- You might have heard of markmaybewrong before, but if you haven’t, it’s worth perusing. The “goal” is to hold college football talking heads accountable for their picks, see who “knows” the most, and find out how we (the average fans) stack up against the “experts.”
