No baby yet.
UPDATE 8: Totally ready for the nightcaps. Although there's still plenty of time for my original prediction that my wife will go into labor during the Florida-LSU game and we'll be away from the TV by the time the 4th quarter starts.
UPDATE 7: Nebraska blew it in Lubbock. They should have gone for 2 at the end of regulation, rather than taken their chances in OT. Texas Tech is unbeaten, but they sure didn't look like the No. 7 team in the country.
UPDATE 6: More on Who's No. 1, as I suffer through Northwestern getting shellacked by Michigan State in Evanston. (Could be worse: I could be a Vandy fan -- they're about to lose to Mississippi State -- or a Tennessee fan, losing big at Georgia.) Here's why a Mizzou win tonight is moot, in terms of being overlooked for No. 1 this week: They play Texas next week. If they beat Texas -- especially a No. 1 Texas? -- the Tigers will deserve to be No. 1. So sit tight, Mizzou fans.
UPDATE 5: I don't know what Brent and Kirk are talking about. Texas is the unquestionable No. 1 team in the country, and I can't understand anyone who argues differently -- and that includes even if LSU wins in Gainesville and Mizzou clocks Oklahoma State. Texas is No. 1. They just took the best shot of the No. 1 team in the country and won by a clear KO. Man, what a big win. And how awesome is it when a Game of the Year lives up to its billing with an awesome back-and-forth slugfest.
UPDATE 4: Let me clarify -- affirm or overturn the call, I don't care. What I care about is that the refs take the 1 minute to freaking ensure the integrity of the most iffy calls. And that there is some system in place to ensure that replay is put into use, rather than bafflingly ignored.
UPDATE 3: That end-zone INT wrong-call (along with the 2 sketchy TD calls earlier) is Exhibit A why college football needs a more clear guideline for how/when to use replay. If not in that case, then WHEN, exactly?!?! Coaches should have 2 challenges per game, and refs should be extra-careful to use review (is is supposed to come from the replay booth upstairs?) any calls in the end-zone, either TDs or turnovers. This is embarrassing.
UPDATE 2: That Nike football ad is amazing.
UPDATE: Hell of a game so far in Dallas. If you have watched a lot of college football this season, you recognize these two teams are playing at a higher level than pretty much every other team (including Missouri). And I had KFC for lunch. Damn, is that KFC unhealthily delicious.
What I'm watching today:
Noon: Oklahoma-Texas (ABC)
3:30: Northwestern-Mich St (ESPN2)
(Look-in: Purdue/Ohio St on ABC)
8: Florida-LSU (CBS)

Wow, the night lineup is exceptional, even if I wasn't a Florida fan.
