What I'm watching: 8:45 am - ESPN3 replay of Oklahoma State/Iowa State because I think I'm getting pranked by some one. No way did OSU lose to ISU. Unless....Oh, yeah, they really ARE Oklahoma State, so yeah that actually makes sense that they would blow their perfect season in Ames, IA ...

Florida State Melts Down…Again

Sunday, October 9th, 2011

Week Three College Football Roundup

Sunday, September 18th, 2011
