    Now that the college football season is over a quarter of the way over, what is the biggest surprise so far?

    Some tough choices but I went with the Big 10 struggles. That conference is really down, which is also why ND is not legit. Having said that, ND has a schedule left to win 10 games this season but they're not a top-10 team.

    One choice I'd add to that list is OU's poor showing so far.

    The Florida Gators looking like a legit threat to win the SEC East.

    I really thought the Buffs would have showed much better in the first four games.

    I went with Oregon State. They are playing damn good ball especially given that they had to postpone their first game, and have beaten two ranked BCS squads. Impressive.

    I think Georgia wins it, but Florida does look a lot better

    ND's defense looks like a top 10 team. They have a bitch of a schedule on top of that.

    Don't see how it couldn't be the B1G as a whole being ****ing horrendous. I mean, holy ****, they are playing some downright pathetic football and not one team is above it.

    ND's defense has been impressive but I go back to my point, look at who they've played. Michigan is hardly looking like a ranked team and Michigan State was severely over-rated. They go up a team that has a good day offensively or ND has a bad day defensively, then their offense has shown that they can keep up with even a mid-level scoring team. Plus they appear to have a QB-controversy on their hands.

    As for their schedule, it's suddenly not looking so tough.
