Well, that's the kiss of death there for Clemson. Down three with 27 seconds left, one timeout, and on Miami's 20 yard line they were content to run the ball, bleed down the clock to the end, and kick a FG for the tie. Not even a shot for the win.

Well Clemson did what they needed to do, holding Miami to a FG in OT.

I've been wondering what happened to make Florida's passing offense so inept this year. It couldn't all be the WRs. Well, I've been watching the plays now and I don't understand what the point of these passing plays is. The routes make NO sense. I don't even know how someone could draw them up and think it's going to get someone open. It has guys running routes within 2-3 yards of each other, running routes that don't involve any separation breaks, etc. They're worthless.

And here we are again leaving points on the field. This game should be 27-3 right now, but instead Florida has outgained MSU 260-70 and blocked a punt, and still only leads 13-10.

In Florida's last 9 redzone possessions they have 1 touchdown and 3 field goals. 9 redzone possessions and they've scored 1 touchdown and come away with no points 5 times. That's ridiculous.

And Texas is doing what everyone thought they would be doing. I got back to my dorm from the game in time for the start of the third quarter. !+)

The Big XII North has a long way to go before it deserves to be on the same field as the South.

And how many different ways can Florida find to leave points on the field? Now they get the ball stripped from behind while high-stepping into the endzone Leon Lett style.

And the ref's blew the call and ruled it a touchdown, lucky for him, but c'mon man.

Not pretty, but they managed. That easily could have been a trap game against a really underrated Michigan St. team.
