Week #10 - Fight 'Em Until Hell Freezes Over ...

And then fight 'em on the ice! I mean, wow - what a weekend of CFB. So many TOP-25 teams lost today (FSU, Mizzou, Utah, Alabama, Oklahoma, etc ...). It's never the same game twice.

As for the Chief, he bit the painful bullet today up in Ann Arbor. What a deflating 3OT loss on the road, in a game we should have won. Not too much that can be said when you lose 65-67 in the conference's highest-scoring contest of all-time. I swear I saw Fisher and Henson on the sidelines during the 2nd half. No defense, like we normally see from the PAC-10 week in and out. Ugh!

As for the national scene, it couldn't get more chaotic now that Alabama has two losses. I'm not convinced just yet that Oregon AND Auburn run the table. Who would have thought that Florida, Texas, USC, and Alabama would have NO shot at the BCS this year. Ohio State is virtually in the same boat. Winds of change in college football - and they feel refreshing. Here's my new TOP-10:

My Revised TOP-10:

1) Oregon - Another week, the same story. But can the scoring continue forever?
2) Auburn - Distractions, no matter. Feels like a team of destiny to me.
3) TCU - Great road win in Salt Lake. But was Utah overrated?
4) Boise State - Doing what they do best and still not good enough.
5) Stanford - Fear the Fighting Harbaugh's from Palo Alto.
6) LSU - I have no idea how they won. But they just keep winning.
7) Wisconsin - Road graters, giving new meaning to shovel-ready.
8) Ohio State - Fundamentally sound and well coached. Red vests for everyone.
9) Nebraska - They own the tie-breaker with Oklahoma State.
10) Oklahoma State - Cowboys are peaking at the right time.

So, where does that leave us? I will tell you. Ponder these round one play-off match-ups as we get ready for those always exciting conference championship games:

Oregon Hosts Ohio State in Eugene. Rematch of the 2010 Rose Bowl.
Auburn Hosts Wisconsin on the Plains. North versus South.
TCU Hosts LSU in Ft. Worth. Miles versus Patterson. Chess match.
Boise State Hosts Stanford on the blue turf.

It just doesn't get any better than this. Of course we can find a way to make an eight-team playoff work. All we would need is one more game in early January to get from 8 to 4, from 4 to 2, and from 2 to 1.
