    *cue NFL Films theme music...

    It begins...

    Who pays better for players, USC or OU?

    Will my Cowboys recover from last season's abortion?

    Who will Ash kiss when and if the Aggies ever score a touchdown?

    Will Auburn be the third wheel again?

    Will Storm's Shorthorn's long for Vince Young?

    How will Bulldog's Terrapins fare?

    Can Chuck's Sun Devil's finally get it done?

    Will Auburn and Oklahoma ever play to finally spare us from Anc and Flashlight's bickering?

    When will the Red Raiders fall apart this year?

    Will Adrian Peterson finally get to keep his Lexus?

    Can the Huskers regain their former glory?

    Will Missery ever deliver?

    Will Alphaman ever share a football pic from his glory days?

    Whose team will make the first appearance on The Bottom Ten?


    The answers to these questions and more will all be in...

    Obviously, I'm interested and eager to see how SC fares this year. But what I really want is for the gorram Ohio State Buckeyes to get knocked off their perch early and drummed into insignificant oblivion, just so I can soak in the piteous crying of the Columbus locals like an emotion-vampire with a sorrow habit. And I hope Michigan does it to them, just to add a little salt in the wound. :tasvir:

    I actually almost posted Texas Tech chicks.... then I got my priorities straight and realized this is the "college football" thread, not the how hot are the chicks at my school thread, cause Tech beats OSU hands down in that one... well both I suppose.

    "I, on the other hand, am a fully-rounded human being, with a degree from the University of Life, a diploma from the School of Hard Knocks, & three gold stars from the Kindergarten of Getting the Shit Kicked Out of Me."




    I spent one semester in UT's summer MBA program and dropped out. Kinda like you with A&M. :finger:

    I never went to a summer MBA program at A&M. :finger:

    Don't know if you noticed my avatar...

    So, Storm, where did you go for your undergrad, or are we gonna have to wait and see who gets to the national championship for you to answer this year?

    Texas will lose 2-3 games this year.

    Oklahoma State, 7-5, after last season's abortion, I can't in good faith predict anything better.

    If that pilot pic is faked, it's a great fake. Although why they'd fly the missing man at a football game is beyond me and leaves me a bit skeptical as to the authenticity. Still, a great photoshop if ever there was one.

    I don't expect USC to go undefeated this year, but I do expect them to win the PAC-10 and thoroughly embarrass both Notre Dame and UCLA. If they do those three things I'll be satisfied. If not, I'm calling for Pete Carroll's head on a platter.










    (Just kidding about Pete. He's the new God of USC football)

    It's a terrible fake. There is no cockpit around him, was he ejecting? And carrying missiles? Totally fake.

    The missiles are training rounds- note the blue bands. Warshots are banded yellow. There for show, nothing more, regardless of what the plane was actually doing at the time.

    As for the canopy, the F-16 has that big bubble canopy. Depending on the pic, you might not see it, although I agree you should be able to see something of the canopy, even if it's nothing more than a bright spot or a lens flare or something.

    I agree that the pic is fake, but I still think it looks cool as hell. Except for being over A&M, anyway.
