I am disappointed.
I'm actually not all that mad. Some of the guys on my hall, however, are furious. As a fan of State growing up before I came here, I'm actually incredibly glad that a loss like that came to the Wolfpack instead of to somebody like UNC or Maryland. NC State obviously wanted the game more, and their play showed it.

Now State just has to beat Maryland, which I'm almost positive will happen. Unfortunately, I was also pretty positive that State would crush BC. We all know how that went.

I hate Maryland almost always being the last game of the year. They ruin everything, so please don't this year. I might go to the game if it's a decent location since I have a lot of time I can take off from work.

Maryland almost ruined it for us, too. Luckily, we were able to actually display some competence in the second half, and ended up pulling out a win. Of course, in that game Sammy did some serious work, making the Maryland defense and special teams look flat out stupid.

Our offense today was lost without Sammy tearing it up. Even if he's not very productive on the scoresheet, he makes teams notice him and keep their eyes on him all the time. Although it really shouldn't be that way with other weapons like Hopkins, Allen, and Ellington, our offense runs through Sammy. You could see the lack of flow in our offense today from Boyd not having his favorite/best receiver. That, and the fact that State's defense was almost perfect.

For that reason, Sammy is now my avatar. I felt that my horrid drawing didn't really have a use anymore, as we're not trolling anybody in our current state. I also refuse to use a tanking-themed avatar, as I feel that losing on purpose to that extent is just disgraceful. I do support losing enough to get a trade/coaching change or some sort of shakeup to get the team going again. It's embarrassing, really, the way that we are unable to generate any sustained offense these last few games.

I had a Chad LaRose-esque smile on my face throughout the whole game. Awesome.

Whoa, whoa, whoa. Nothing is as dreamy as a Chad LaRose smile, AINEC. Therefore, it is impossible for you to have a LaRose-esque smile. You take that comment back right now!

If Oklahoma does end up losing to Baylor, then i'll be mad. Potentially being only behind LSU, Alabama, and Arkansas sounds pretty nice right now.

Oh well, I really can't speculate about what could have happened anymore. Who would have though that this weekend would be the weekend of upsets?

I'll just stand by the fact that I hope State does well in their game against Maryland next week, and in their bowl game. And that Clemson does well against South Carolina, VT/UVA, and whoever in their bowl game, obviously.

I'm actually overjoyed, rather than mad. Odd. I guess I never expected to be this good this year, so I'm not really that mad because of two losses. Without Watkins and to a lesser extent Boyd being as good as they've been, who knows where we'd be?

On a side note, I really want Stanford to lose now. Could you imagine the mayhem on ESPN if the #2, #4, #5, #7, and #9 seeds lose in the same weekend?

Alright, I guess I can handle Stanford winning here. After all, I got to see a few upsets this week, especially something not seen in 10 years with 3 of the top 5 seeds losing.

Does anybody else want to see something other than LSU-Alabama in the BCS championship game? Honestly, the first game was not very exciting to me, and I'd prefer for somebody else to make it in. Preferably two different teams, but just one would be fine by me.

If Alabama makes the BCS championship without winning their division its going to be outright disgusting.

Yes, Bama absolutely does not deserve another shot at LSU if everything stays as is. I wouldn't care if it's LSU vs freaking Houston, just not Bama again, would be the first BCS title game I flat out will not watch.

Boise State creeps closer as all other challengers absolutely choke it away.

Boise had a golden chance yet again this year but blew it by losing to TCU. One of these days some mid major school will be there and be the symbol the BCS needs...

They're done. The loss to TCU killed them. The voters won't put them above the SEC's big 3, and the computers won't either.

Oh I know. But a guy can dream.

Ball fumbled away by the 3rd string RB and then they get another chance and the kicker misses, again (different kicker, same result).

I'm pretty sure it's statistically immpossible, but if UH can go undefeated, I actually think the Cougars could probably give LSU a game.

The Beckham experiment was just legitimized. I'm of the opinion that the MLS will never be the same, in a good way.

Kind of funny that Donovan got a yellow card when the Dynamo fans were throwing stuff at him.

Makes me wonder if hypothetically, Oregon had beat LSU on opening kickoff, where we'd be at now. The only undefeated team would be mathmatically elminated from BCS Title contention?
