A few quick thoughts...

Haven't posted since the Falcons late comeback last week against Chicago. Great win that puts the Birds in a good position to be 5-3 or 6-2 at the half way point. A loss last week and today vs Dallas is a must win with a trip to NO coming up. The Brian Williams knee injury really hurts and I am concerned this is one more injury away from being in real trouble.

Some great finishes yesterday in East Lansing and Tuscaloosa. Not a whole lot of shake up in the top of the standings, but TCU made a pretty strong statement in Provo. They have now won at UVA, Clemson, and BYU and are clearly on track for a BCS game. It still looks like the SEC will get an at-large and that would leave one more spot for an at-large, and TCU looks the part. They will have a high enough BCS ranking and should get the nod over Boise due to their head-to-head victory last season.

Cincy continues to roll even without Tony Pike, and Nevada put up 70 against Idaho with Luke Lippincott and Colin Kaepernick. They may have a shot to knock off Boise after Thanksgiving. Auburn is in serious danger of starting 5-0 and failing to become bowl eligible. They will get a 6th win against Furman, but won't have 6 FCS victories needed...

Georgia Tech will be favored to win the rest of their games and could be 11-1 going into the ACCCG, likely against Clemson. Things sure set up nice for them this year, with their non-conference schedule and the ACC producing many bad teams. They went 2-1 against the only other teams in their conference with a pulse, and that should be enough to get them to the ACCCG.
