CFB Saturday Mid-Evening Update

OK: So I was VERY wrong about Oklahoma losing to Tulsa. As penance, I will leap-frog the Sooners over Florida in my BlogPoll Top 25, up to No. 3.

Meanwhile, the Gators gritted out a win at Ole Miss, but Tim Tebow accounted for 428 yards -- the hard way: 260 passing and 160 rushing, along with 4 TDs (2 pass, 2 rush). WVU's Pat White and Steve Slaton are great: Tebow is like the two of them combined.

Michigan rights the ship: Huge HUGE win vs. Penn State. Mike Hart carries the team, and Chad Henne will never start again as long as Ryan Mallett is healthy.

Notre Dame still sucks. Still! 0-4 for the first time in school history. But, hey, at least they finally scored an offensive TD.

Finally: Louisville. WTF?! Losing at home to lowly Syracuse?

More tomorrow. Back to breaking the Yom Kippur fast.

As a Nole fan, I say this with a lot of love & spirit...GET THE F*CK OVER TEBOW..This man crush you have on this kid is disgusting...Almost as bad as Peter King's love affair with all thing Patriots/Tom Brady...When this kids goes up against at least a respectable defense and puts up numbers similar to the the ones he's put up against the likes of W. Kentucky & Ole Miss then we can talk

$100 that Henne starts next week. Mallet has been a good stopgap for Michigan so far, but if you watched the games (Granted, knowing your great dislike for michigan I doubt you did) you would see that Mallet is very much so the lesser of the two quarterbacks at this time (In the future? only time will tell)

However, huge congrats on bumping Oklahoma over Florida. Didn't know you had it in ya :>

Oh God, if you can't stand Dan's man-crush, don't come to Gainesville. Don't ever come to Gainesville. Trust me. To give you an idea, go to facebook.com and search for people by religion. Enter "tebow" and see what happens...

ugh...Dan you don't usually say things that are so stupid, but Tebow is like White/Slaton combined? Give me a break. Is that like saying Tebow is a one man team? Because if that's the case I'd much rather have 2 guys than 1. And I'd also say that Pat's 18-20, oh by the way 90% completion percentage is not shabby. As well as the fact that I'm sure both White and Slaton are faster than Tebow. Get over yourself!

PS - Lovely to see Penn State lose, just lovely!

God the gators played like crap yesterday. Something about going to mississippi. We always play like crap there. I know we tend to play down the week after big wins and thank god we didn't have to play UK like we used to the week after the UT game. If we would have played them yesterday we would have gotten our ass handed to us. It is funny to think that it is entirely possible that the east division title cold come down to that game. Thats weird.

Henne will start as soon as he is healthy. If he was playing in that game yesterday Michigan wins 30-9.

I just want to point out that of Tebow's 260 yeards passing, he actually only threw the ball a total of 60. The other 200 yards were yards after the catch by his receivers.
