Thoughts on the Game:

With Baylor having an off week this week before Homecoming against Kansas, I'm going to hold off on in-depth thoughts on this game right now.  I haven't had a chance to rewatch yet, so I don't want to say too much.  I will say that I was very happy to see the running game take off for the first time this season and that Shock Linwood is a hoss.  The defense would get a big NEEDS IMPROVEMENT through the first three quarters, but then they allowed just 7 yards total in the fourth.  I don't know how that's possible.

Seymour's Top 10:

This is as of right now, obviously, and I'm going to try to be as objective as possible, as little as some in our fanbase might like it.  Don't get too worked up about the numbering, especially after the first five or so.  It's all very fluid.

  1. Clemson Tigers
  2. Alabama Crimson Tide
  3. Ohio State Buckeyes
  4. Michigan Wolverines
  5. Houston Cougars
  6. Louisville Cardinals
  7. Washington Huskies
  8. Texas A&M Aggies
  9. Miami Hurricanes
  10. Wisconsin Badgers

I'm doing everything I can not to put Tennessee in there.  I hate it.
