Breathing Easy After Boise: Week 14 Thoughts

What a three days of college football it was for us on Thanksgiving.First of all, there was THAT Auburn comeback which stirred hearts. There's nothing quite like Nick Saban getting a kick in the nuts - but it's probably more satisfying when it's Auburn fans who have done it. Their rendition of "Rammer Jammer" was a touch of genius, particularly when you can guaranteed it was repeated in somewhere

Duck Still Rule The Nest: Our Top 25 After Week 10

With TCU trouncing Utah on the road, the BCS suddenly has a little bit of a shake-up.
