    Texas throttles Arizona State 52-34 despite the "touching the ball in play" gaffe.

    Updated Leaderboard

    Rohniss: 5-3

    Now, we have 4 players tied for the lead, 2 within one game, and Inty holding up the rear.

    The three games tonight and tomorrow should provide maybe a little more separation.

    So far it looks like you're down one.

    ? By my count, rech just took a 1-game lead. He picked Wake, you picked UConn, and Wake won. Unless its backwards day or something :p

    EDIT: and I pulled back to .500. Once again, yay mediocrity!

    EDIT2: And NOW is when I notice that you're last post was before Wake took over in their game. That would explain it...

    Yeah, kind of. Though I'm in a slump today so far, all I need is for Penn St to win in order to remain in a tie with rechedelphar.

    vs.
    Colorado: redchedelphar, DarthIntegral, Obese_1_Ka-Blooey

    So, tonight's game could either cause a multi-tie with a bunch of players or redchedelphar and Obese_1_Ka-Blooey could be up 2 games.

    I'm glad you're confident in Ok. St., cuz they're killing Indiana...

    Good day for me except for Oregon and probable Oklahoma State. Auburn/Clemson is still very early, so I'll have to keep my eye on that one.

    I was thinking, hey, Indiana hasn't been a bowl in how long? They're going to play all-out!

    I guess I was wrong.

    That's only a 4 point lead (see, I can count!), and Auburn can easily remove their deficit in the second half.

    But if they don't, I'm in trouble. A .500 record today will just not cut it! :mad:
