Auburn over Florida St
What's with you, and all the hate for Florida State?
Am just sayin' you think they are going to lose every game.
So who do you have winning in the BCS bowls games?
Rose Bowl: Stanford vs Michigan State
Fiesta Bowl: UCF vs Baylor
Sugar Bowl: Oklahoma vs Alabama
Orange Bowl: Clemson vs Ohio State
BCS Natianol Chanpionship: Florida State vs Auburn
My pics are Michigan State, UCF, Alabama, Ohio State and Florida State.
Dr. Saturday's college football awards:
***OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR
Jordan Lynch, QB Northern Illinois
It’s hard to ignore Lynch’s incredible numbers. He threw for 2,676 yards, 23 touchdowns and just seven interceptions. He also rushed for 1,881 yards, which included two (TWO!) 300-yard rushing games. He’s the nation’s second-leading rusher and his rushing numbers – just rushing numbers – are better than the numbers of former Alabama running back Mark Ingram when he won the Heisman in 2009.
**EFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR
Michael Sam, DE, Missouri
Sam was named the SEC Defensive Player of the Year, the first defensive player of the year for the Tigers since 1981. He led the SEC in sacks with 10.5 and had 18 tackles for loss. He was part of an energized defense that helped lead Missouri to the SEC title game. Sam is what everyone expected South Carolina’s Jadeveon Clowney to be this season.
***COACH OF THE YEAR
David Cutcliffe, Duke
Cutcliffe has made Duke a power in the ACC. Never thought I would ever write that sentence, but the turnaround Cutcliffe has orchestrated at Duke is nothing short of remarkable. The Blue Devils had their first 10-win season and their first division title. And while they were outmatched in the ACC title game, they still gave Florida State a test for a half. Duke is a fantastic success story this season.
For the second consecutive season, Oregon was on the cusp of playing for a national title and stumbled. Heck, the Ducks were picked to win the Pac-12 and couldn’t even accomplish that. The team looked so disinterested in the latter quarter of the season that they blew a chance to go to the Rose Bowl with a loss to Arizona and found itself left out of the BCS altogether for the first time since 2008.
***FIRING NOBODY NOTICED
Watson: Don Treadwell, Miami (OH)
When Miami (OH) fired Treadwell on Oct. 6, the Redhawks had just lost to Central Michigan and were 0-5. The Redhawks finished the season 0-12, one of only two teams in the country to finish winless this season (Georgia State). Sadly, that 21-9 loss to Central Michigan was actually one of the closer results for Miami (OH) this season. It’s amazing to think this team won 10 games and a Mid-American Conference title in 2010.
Am happy Jameis Winston won the Heisman.
- Saturday’s New Mexico Bowl was either the greatest comeback or the greatest collapse of the early bowl season.
Colorado State scored 18 points in the final 2 minutes and 50 seconds to beat Washington State 48-45.
While the point margin and time it took for the comeback were impressive, it was nothing compared to how it all went down. The Rams scored, then forced a fumble on Washington State’s next possession, scored, had a two-point conversion on a Statue of Liberty play, recovered a fumbled kickoff and then kicked the game-winning field goal.
I did not expect Oklahoma to win today.
Because Alabama was the better team the whole year.
James Weniston had the best freshman year ever in the history of college football.
