    Will there be any upsets this weekend? Hopefully at least one or two undefeated teams will go down.

    I didn't realize there were any games worth watching this weekend. Of course, I'm a college football addict, so I will watch them all anyway.

    Stanford will be much closer than the spread against USC. They had a bye week- trounced BYU and they are playing at home I believe......

    I'm with you man. IMO Stanford and ASU might surprise the PAC-10. I think Stanford makes this game very close. Hopefully USC overlooks them and gets upset!!!

    Go Cardinals!

    I wouldn't mind BYU beating Boise St. I'm tired of these non-bcs schools bitching. They need to join a real conference or become independent and play somebody.

    I was looking forward to the Iowa/scUM game before Iowa got pounded 44-7 last week. I still think the Hawkeyes can make it interesting.

    Boise St. and Fresno St. could add cred to a down Pac 10.

    I agree about the Michigan/Iowa matchup. Let's see Michigan play someone in conference since they have a penchant for losing OOC games.

    I agree soul but when you play a couple non-conference games that are tougher than any team in your conference it's hard to get respect!!!

    I understand your point, but the PAC-10 may be better than anyone expected. ASU pounded a team that was supposed to finish near the top of the Big Ten and if Stanford hangs with or beats USC they might be real!!!

    We will see

    Well--even if they're better than we think (Stanford might lose by 30 this weekend), but they're still not as good as the B10, SEC, ACC, or B12. Somehow the Big East is still a major confrence or they'd still be the worst major. I could see them leapfrogging the B12 if another team besides TU and OU refuses to step up, though. Which is definitely more than I could say for them before.

    I think Boise and Fresno are two well coached teams who recruit good athletes and would make a very good addition to the confrence.

    I think the Iowa ASU game was simply a case of Iowa coming out flat. I think they come out super pumped against scUM and beat them ... or at least make it very close. I also expect NCSU to come out and beat Va Tech. NCSU has a great defense, and I think Va Tech is a little over rated just because they hung around with USC.

    Any one ever think the big ten will ever think about replacing Indiana with a worthy team? ( BGSU, Miami Oh, maybe even Marshal) Some of the other teams that suck like Northwestern and Illinois have had good years every now and then so you don't want to really force them out, but Indiana has just sucked for so long. Just a thought.

    All in all I think the best way to solve the "mid major wining problem" is to have more movement in and out of the conferences. If a team like Vandy, Indiana, Balor, Rutgers, or Temple don't go atleast .500 once in five years I say they have to leave the BCS conference for 5 years. You then take the next most worthy Mid major team and move them into that slot. That team gets five years to prove if it deserves to be in a BCS conference. If it does, then it stays. If it doesn't perform then it goes and another team comes in. Let me know what you all think.

    No, they couldn't...Boise St. and Fresno St aren't anywhere near the level of athletics, academics, and tradition of other Pac10 schools...maybe in 10 years or so, but I don't see it happening for a while

    By academics I mean more along the lines of Research and that sort of thing...the university missions just aren't the same

    I think it will never work because of all the other sports besides football.

    What if we got booted from the B10 because of the BBall team? Think the ACC wants to get rid of Duke because they blow in football?
