BTW, it did rain on Miami but not on VT, right ?
Oh, I've followed enough of your posts to see what this is about...and I've known enough fans who were blinded by a rabid support for their team and a hatred for certain other teams' success. I don't have to see anymore to recognize it for what it is.

"The game was not as close as the score indicated"...I love that excuse!

As a real football fan would understand, pouring rain isn't nearly as detrimental to a ground attack team as it is to a passing oriented team. I wouldn't expect you to know that.

The only poster who's embarrassing himself is the one proclaiming 'back' a team which managed all of 15 yards rushing and was utterly dominated by a team which had to start a true freshman QB.

If that's the kind of performance it takes to be 'back', I'm proclaiming Duke the next juggernaut!

Right...but there is no need to act like South Florida is the equivalent of a high school team either. Again, it's obvious that some people are so in love with their team that they will try to elevate it by jumping on any perceived weakness of a rival team. It's painfully obvious...and immature...and so many other things. But keep going if you wish - it's kinda funny.

Keep going...I'm getting a good laugh at each of your posts. You're hilarious!

A 'real football' fan would have noticed that it wasn't the rain, but the pass-rush and coverage that stifled Jacory Harris, that VT did not have trouble passing, and that Miami had trouble running.

And I'll take my rabid support over the sort of frantic reasonings that have one of the nation's poorest defenses and rushing offenses 'back.'

No, hilarious is the lacrosse conference (ACC) trying to play football.

You are both right and wrong. Dale, USF is no pushover. I actually beleive they made it to number 2 in the crazy year of 2007. They are a very solid program. Im in the middle with UM. They are in no means back to the dominant years of '83-'94 and then from '00-'02, but they aren't horrible either. VT took them apart this past weekend. It happens, it's college football. I will say though WeimieLvr, that same VT team was dominated by Bama. Were it not for special teams (which I know is part of the game) the score would have been more lopsided towards Bama. They ran up and down the field on VT. It really wasn't as close as the score indicates.

I never said that USF is a pushover. Indeed, they have acquired the reputation, in recent years, of being a giant-killer, and is very likely the second-best program in the state at this time.

What made the loss to USF so striking is: (a) the manner in which FSU was throttled and (b) the fact that USF had to start a freshman QB.

Not really...To me they have several weaknesses...defensive and offensive lines, defensive backfield allows some unnecessary catches, although, I WILL SAY that the stand at the end of the game against MSU last Saturday was one of the best stands I've ever seen in college football. MSU was 4 inches from the goal line and couldn't get it in in 4 downs....that is impressive. Talk radio over here basically says that LSU is playing up to par with each opponent every week and that is why they are undefeated. We'll see if that continues. In college football, blowouts impress me. Different story in the NFL, of course, but, you expect LSU to really beat up on a MSU team that is unranked. Time will tell....big LSU games are on the horizon.

True. Make no mistake either, the right team won that game. I was surprised they looked as good as they did with a freshman QB as well. It helped that this FSU squad has a Jeckyll and Hyde element to it, but I take nothing away from USF.

I would of though that Les Miles would be on the hot seat after what happened in Starkville Saturday. I think this week game against UGA will say alot about where LSU is in the scheme of things.

BTW I wasnt really shocked about USF beating FSU, again it says alot about where the FSU football program is right now. And what about Houston, they are 2-0 against the Big 12 this season.

You betta hope Tebow comes back...concussion is serious biz....Qbs just can't keep that up....IMO...FSU lost to two good teams that'll probably get ranked with another win or so.

Maybe it's early, but I'm not thoroughly impressed with Florida this year..last with Percy Harvin...I think they had a better team.

Funny how you keep dissing Miami and FSU...YOU know they're gonna be great programs again....just a matter of time. ALL great programs go through this...Alabama, LSU, Nebraska, Oklahoma....etc.

I've been following college football a LONGGGGG time and in 80s and 90s (pre-old ball coach)..the only were only two teams in Florida; Miami and FSU. I remember Herschel Walker with GA, Auburn and Alabama and LSU being top dogs in the SEC....but Florida Gators....they had some good years but being perennial SEC contenders...I just don't remember that.

I've always liked Miami...(dat swagger...it'll be back)

Well, we really don't know that either FSU or Miami will be great again. Look at Notre Dame. Look at Nebraska.

Miami is going to think it's back again, but this OU team is a shell of last year's team:

No Bradford

No Gresham

4 of 5 O-Line starters gone

top two WR's gone

several defensive starters gone

Miami faced an OU team almost devoid of weaponry
