Jamie (9:19 p.m.): My Lord, it's football not chess. CONTACT SPORT!
Jamie (9:20 p.m.): Then they DON'T call THAT?
Jamie (9:24 p.m.): They don't deserve to make this kick.
Jamie (9:29 p.m.): Lost in all the commotion was the fact that Janzen Jackson got flagged for "tackling too hard."
Pedro (9:51 p.m.): "History maybe ending on ESPN2." Does this mean the end of the world, the end of the Deuce, the end of women's basketball, the end of UConn?
Pedro (10:13 p.m.): The Mrs., "Are you kidding me? Oh my God, are you freakin kidding me? Show me the football game! That's it, I'm going to bed. Not like we don't have ESPN2."
Maguire (1:52 p.m.): They have Bluth bananas in Disney World.
Pedro (2:09 p.m.): Not sure I'm a fan of interviewing the incoming coach in the midst of his predecessor's finale. Methinks Randy Shannon not a fan of that CBS programming choice.

Maguire (8:48 p.m.): We haven't played yet. And I'll take an SEC 0-fer if it means Oregon shuts those people up.
Pedro (8:53 p.m.): We've always got MS State. They can take Michigan, at least most of America thinks so.
Zach (9:43 p.m.): Yeah. This is bad.
Zach (10:18 a.m.): However, all 3 have been from East.
Zach (10:22 a.m.): Bama will not lose.
Zach (10:23 a.m.): Guaranteed.
Jamie (12:04 p.m.): Rhodes Scholar nominee ...

Dad (1:37 p.m.): Is 28 enough?
Rob (1:51 p.m.): SEC West is showing good so far.
Maguire (1:55 p.m.): 30 more minutes ... let's finish this season strong.
Dad (2:02 p.m.): Just remember we are all counting on you.
Pedro (2:12 p.m.): Think we'll send a mercy pickle to the MSU sideline for that guy's cramp?
Rob (2:12 p.m.): Upshaw and Dareus together are scary.
Dad (2:12 p.m.): Good luck. We are all counting on you.
Rob (2:15 p.m.): Wow second string in.
Audra (2:22 p.m.): Is there a run rule in football? They need one for this game.
Pedro (2:40 p.m.): Go State, Go State.
Rob (3:01 p.m.): Instead of SEC we should chant "SEC WEST."
Pedro (3:32 p.m.): "They (MS State) have smelt great today." See?

Pedro (4:17 p.m.): My wife really enjoys saying, "Hook 'em, horned frogs."
Halcombe (4:18 p.m.): I'm waiting for Musberger to toss this gem at Herbie: "What does a lion call a monkey's balls? A sack lunch. And the Badgers take the early lead."
Dad (4:21 p.m.): I bet Toon's nickname is Car.
Halcombe (4:23 p.m.): Wonder how long it will take before TCU sideline reporter shouts, "We don't need no stinking Badgers. Back to you in the booth."
Halcombe (4:37 p.m.): Wonder how many pancake-eating contests Clay has won this past year?
Halcombe (4:44 p.m.): What's up with all the Adidas bicep bands? Badgers going for the "Gladiator" look?
Rob (4:45 p.m.): Big Ten defenses equals sucks.
Pedro (6:15 p.m.): Illinois might win the Big Ten next year. Vandy could. Opelika High School would.
Halcombe (6:58 p.m.): Forcing out Wannstedt is looking better and better isn't it Pitt?

Rob (7:13 p.m.): How many times can Erin Andrews say, "Put that into perspective."

Maguire (8:08 p.m.): I wonder if Edsall is imagining Bob Stoops with a baby in place of his head.
Halcombe (8:13 p.m.): There's football on ESPN? I've been too busy catching the New Year's Day marathon of "V." AMAZING SPECIAL EFFECTS, even if there's no Michael Ironside.
Dad (8:16 p.m.): I will need more than 16 points.
Halcombe (8:22 p.m.): Haywood after his last arrest: What did I tell my old lady with two black eyes? Nothing. I done tole dat trick twice.
Dad (8:33 p.m.): We are back in it baby!
Halcombe (8:40 p.m.): Apparently fumbling is a trait for any OU offensive starter and not unique to AP.
Audra (8:41 p.m.): We like our kickers to have a lil gut.
Halcombe (8:46 p.m.): We hear so much talk about the chips, but what about the accompanying line of queso and bean dips? Then we could have the Tostitos con queso Bowl.
Audra (8:47 p.m.): The second best quote: "Hey, isn't UConn a women's basketball team?"
