god how fun does this look, giving an even bigger advantage for the athletic kids to wail on the fatsos in gym class. i think i could spend a whole day playing in one of these things and not get bored
The Big Lead – Craig James casts an AP ballot. His Top 25 this past week was rather interesting. Here are some of the highlights.
Boise State is No. 24. Let me repeat that. Boise State is No. 24. The Broncos are 10-1 with a one-point loss to TCU. They haven’t played the toughest schedule, but a tougher one statistically than Virginia Tech (James – 4), Houston (James – 5), Michigan State (James -12) and Wisconsin (James – 13). Boise State beat James’ 11th ranked team, Georgia, by two touchdowns in a de facto road game. They have fewer losses. Yet, somehow, they are ranked 13 places lower. They are ranked behind five-loss Missouri and four-loss Texas. Boise at 10-1 against the 51st ranked schedule is No. 24. Houston at 12-0 against the 111th ranked schedule is No. 5? Seriously, did Chris Petersen not answer his text messages? Was he a little curt during a stop and chat in the gym? We’ll assume that’s not an optimistic sign for Kellen Moore and Doug Martin’s chances of winning the Pony Express Award.
Arkansas is No. 3. The Razorbacks are 10-2. They have only lost to LSU and Alabama. Fine. They were also clearly outclassed in both games. What is their best win? South Carolina? A comeback against 6-6 Texas A&M?
Oklahoma is No. 17. Kansas State is No. 8. Oklahoma is No. 17. Oklahoma has the same number of losses as the Wildcats. Oklahoma beat them by 41 points in Manhattan! There is no plausible argument for the Wildcats being a better team, let alone a demonstrably better one. That is insane.
Stanford is No. 10. I can see not being sold on Stanford. How are they ranked below No. 7 USC when Stanford beat USC and has fewer losses? Yes, the Trojans looked better against Oregon. In games that also counted, they scraped by against Minnesota and Utah and lost by three touchdowns against Arizona State, who just had their coach fired.
Clemson is Unranked. I don’t think Clemson is that good. That said, Clemson is 9-3 and beat James No. 4 team, Virginia Tech, by 20 in Blacksburg. They beat Florida State (James -25) and have a better record against a tougher schedule.
Let me start off by saying that I cannot fucking stand Craig James. How he is an analyst for ESPN right now is beyond me. He was apart of one of the most infamous sports scandals in the history of college football and no doubt was right at the center of it. You think ESPN would ever hire someone like Terrelle Pryor (not just cause hes dumb and black) after what he went through at Ohio State. No shot. And then a couple years ago Craig turns into that fucking parent that you cant stand which results in Mike Leach getting fired from Texas Tech because his son is almost as big of a conceited spoiled bitch as his dad is. Now he puts out this absurd poll of his own thinking that people actually care what he believes his top 25 should be. This man is one type of a ratard and ultimately should have been administered the death penalty along with the SMU football program back in ’87.
Is this the cream of the crop that bin laden was working with over there? No wonder he decided that they were best fit for suicide missions. Look at these clownbags. You have got to be kidden

Carolla could not have been more spot on with his rant here on OWS losers
I thought we were supposed to have a break from lebron james and the rest of those boring ass basketball hightlights due to the best lock out to ever happen. But no, Baby Bron-bron just cant stay out of the lime-light. As soon as he hears about KD driving up to Stillwater to play in a college flag football league, hes just cant help but copying him and making a new event all about him. Like seriously, its bad enough that they miraculously salvaged a 60 game season that we now all have to suffer through with the most boring nightly SC’s ever. Its ridiculous the types of stupid ass segments that SC will show rather than showing more NHL coverage. They really need to get a deal done to start having a segment for college hockey. NCAA hockey>NBA players playing flag football for attention
PS-did they seriously have commentators for this fuckin thing? you gotta be kiddin, CMMON MAN
