    Thanks, mouse - but I was already very well aware of that.

    I knew that. And add Penn State and Notre Dame to Fraud Five along with Texas A&M.

    FRAUD FIVE
    • Penn State: Dear Lou Holtz, stop cursing teams with your "Thursday night pep talk", please!
    • Notre Dame: Going 0-4 for the first time in forever puts you into Jay Leno's fodder next week.
    • Louisville: 35-points favorite against 0-3 Syracuse + ranked in the Top 25 = Implosion like an old Las Vegas casino.
    • Texas A&M: It's not okay to lose at Miami (Florida). On a Thursday night. On national TV.
    • Appliachian State: You were America's Sweetharts when you beat Michigan. But to lose to Wofford? That's not cool.

    Yes I am! What a game! To be honest I was not expecting a win but the Dawgs pulled one out for Larry Munson who was not at the mic, calling the game, for only the 2nd time in over 40 years. Georgia better watch the trap game against Ole Miss next week at home. If you're looking at the SEC East standings and thinking you're not reading things right you are, Kentucky is in first place. Amazing!

    Hey Mouse your forgot someone for the Fraud Five. Central Michigan joined the ranks of the teams to lose to a school in the lower division this year, getting clobbered by North Dakota State by over 25 points!

    The only reason I didn't put CMU in was because of Appy State losing to Wofford. And they were the #1 team in the DI FCS polls.

    Re: The Official 2007 College Football Thread

    Here are some of the pictures I took at the USC Washington State game:

    The skies looked a bit threatening outside the Coliseum, but we left the umbrellas in the car.

    Anthony Davis was signing autographs at Fan Fest.

    There's a couple of fine Trojans enjoying the moment.

    JJ and Brandon Hancock joined the 710 ESPN radio show.

    Beneath the Olympic athletes stood the Perfect Day Club about an hour before the game.

    Inside we stopped for a prime rib sandwich from Lawry's.

    And made our way to our seats on the 45-yard-line.

    USC gets ready to start the game receiving. Last time that happened: the 2006 Rose Bowl against Texas.

    Before long, the line of scrimmage was right in front of our faces.

    Then the rain came. The downside, we got a light drenching. The good news: scenery.

    The rain brought out a few yellow raincovers, sent a few people into the tunnels, and brought out this rainbow.

    Stanley Havili goes up and over for the 14-7 lead. USC would never look back.

    This black cloud hung over the Coliseum even as we squinted against the Sun.

    The rainbow hung around for much of the first and second quarters.

    A big crowd, a big lead, the Coliseum, a rainbow and the Goodyear Blimp made for a great college football atmosphere. We wondered: how long ago was our last rainy game at home (Notre Dame, November 2004). Our last rainy game in September? (We haven't been alive that long).

    So close to a safety!

    The Trojans come out for the second half.

    Before too long, the line of scrimmage was in front of us again.

    The Cougar offense looks a bit dejected.

    Allen Bradford scores on a corner dive after a short pass from J.D. Booty on first and goal. USC 40, Wazzu 14.

    This pass to Hazelton would end the scoring at 47-14.

    Halfway through the 4th quarter, the fans were headed for drier, warmer places to celebrate.

    Washington State sets up a final play with clock management that drew boos from the tired crowd, ready to go home.

    An incomplete pass against the second and third string USC defense ends the game.

    USC 47, Washington State 14. Bomp, bomp! Beat! The Huskies!
    Fight On! Beat the Huskers!

    Well, for the second time this season, the number five team in the country was exposed as a fraud. The first time, the Mountaineers won. This time ... not so much.

    Pete, I must say that while I don't like the Trojans, I certainly have enjoyed your pictures. Thanks for sharing them!

    Re: The Official 2007 College Football Thread

    Those were great pictures! They still light the Olympic torch in LA? I've never seen that before. Looks like there is a great atmosphere for a USC game.

    Congrats to South Florida with their big win last night. Look out for the Bulls they might run the table.

    And Notre Dame is now 0-5.

    Someone inform the Irish they won't be going to a bowl game.

    Fraud Five (Plus Two)
    • Oklahoma: Yeah, it's okay to lose at Colorado, but not while in the Top Five, and averaging sixty-plus a game.
    • West Virginia: See above, but at South Florida.
    • Texas: Same as above, but at home to Kansas State?
    • Rutgers: Same as Texas, but to Maryland.
    • Florida: Lose at home to Auburn. And as defending national champs.
    • Notre Dame: Just out of habit. No bowl for you unless you pull off three of the biggest upsets in the history of all history.
    • Penn State: Illinois, and four INTs by Tony Morelli? Losing to the guy that inspired FireRonZook.com imafmy? Say goodbye to BCS bowl and hello Alamo Bowl.
