I like Shawn Willliams. I think getting a guy like him could see Troy move over to FS, and allow him to play the more physical position.

I'd also like to see the Steelers take Desmond Trufant (Marcus' brother). I've loved what I've read about him.

I'd still like to see this team really take a tackle and seal that lineup for the time being. Pugh is still a guy I really like, and have been impressed when I've seen him.

I really don't know enough about Chase Thomas. I'm still operating under the belief that we have what we need at linebacker...guy's just need to get healthy and prove themselves. I have thought Worilds has been productive in limited snaps, and Sylvester is your prototypical strong side, tackling machine, rush linebacker.

Bigger version of Harrison, they play in the same OLB spot. He's 6'4 248.

Turns out Ben have a rib injury which is much more serious than his shoulder. The rib is partially dislocated and if he were to be hit the wrong way, it could press his aorta and kill him.

He said he does not believe his rib injury is season ending but not sure when he will be back.

No, none of the above will be signed. The Pirates don't sign big names, they try to sign cheap veterans instead.

Lord no. First off, I want no part of Hamilton, and secondly, this is the Pirates we're talking about.

Ohio State making it difficult on themselves again. No game is ever easy.

What a joke. Why not add Marshall and Kent State?

I was shocked when I heard about it. Both are bad fit for Big Ten.

What a wretched Saturday outside of one game. Montana loses to Montana State (though I'm actually not bitter about that as I want heads to roll in Missoula), Kansas State fails to show up against Baylor, Oregon is in OT against Stanford, Ohio State...whatever they're not eligible for the post-season anyway and I dislike Wisconsin too...but all this stuff is making for an Alabama-Notre Dame Championship Game...which...ew.

**** you Pitt for blowing that Notre Dame game. Honestly I hate Notre Dame more than I do Ohio State. I've met the occasional tOSU fan who can at least communicate like a human.

This thrusts me into the uncomfortable position of having to root for USC this week.

On that note I'm really kicking myself for not buying tickets to today's game earlier in the season when they weren't the hottest item in town...

(and yes, those are clouds...today was the first time it rained during the UCLA-USC game in 51 years)

Oregon loses.

Go Trojans. For one game.

KSU and Oregon lost. Notre Dame is now #1.

We may have a SEC team in BCS championship game again.

Here's hoping USC beat ND next week.

Agreed. ND is a most overrated team. I hope I won't see them in BCS championship game.

No doubt he should have buried the kick, but if the refs do their job, Pitt has 1st and goal.
