    Great game by A&M. Bama is better than that. But hey, any game can go either way on any given day. Ill take the ugly BC win tonight in stride. We need to keep control of the ball though. 3 turnovers last week and 2 this week. thats not admirable when you are #3. But hats off to #5. He will be missed. Te'o for heisman! To the haters.....

    Suck it

    What can i say, A&M brought it..bama made to many mistakes and still could have won the game...it does show some evidence of a beast the next 2 years at least.

    Yeldon is not as comfortable with the ball as I thought. He is raw though and needs more carries...2 fumbles in 2 games is unacceptable on a Saban coached team.

    I am still trying to figure out how we only ran it once from the 6??? Amazing!!!

    I cannot say that we didn't deserve a win because I already knew that A&M would score points...I told my buddy in Michigan, first game this year, we COULD lose either to LSU or A&M...wish I was wrong.

    We need a couple of shoes to fall just right to get back in, but, if not then oh well. I'll take KState vs ND before I take Oregon vs anybody...

    Very possible...but I hope not. We have had our toughest test at Oklahoma. Our hopes rest with which ND squad shows up. Im happy either way. This season is already way ahead of what ANY ND fan predicted, or anyone for that matter. Ill take 11-1 all day. We gotta game before that to win though. No looking ahead. Kelly knows that defense wins championships. But I believe defense has taken a backseat in much of college football. 60-70 pts by 2 teams is rediculous. Its like they have completely forgotten about that. There are only 4-5 teams that have an elite defense.

    Most people do hate us. But nobody can say we are a joke this year. Winning is winning. But all the hating will never go away. Doesnt matter what we do or how we do it. It always gets worse when we excel. Any school would have an NBC contract if offered. It would be stupid moneywise to do away with that. We are basically in a conference in the next few years by playing at least 5 ACC teams. So that conference argument now is moot. That actually helps our scheduling which people dont realize. Ill say this to part. Notre Dame puts butts in the seats. No matter win or lose. its not their fault that people will watch us hoping we lose as much as our fanbase watching for us to win. Haters can blame themselves for the machine that Notre Dame is. Its been going on since i started following them in 1990. I don't expect it to stop.

    Yes winning IS winning but come on; yall had 1 hard game on your schedule, maybe 2 if i count USC (the ACC is not a hard conference to play in and yall didnt even play Florida State or Clemson). I tried to find stats on the home game attendance records and ran across this beauty (need more posts to link). ND is behind A&M at #13. ND has gotten better but I'd like to see you play a harder schedule.

    I just cant stand teams with mediocre schedule strength campaigning for a shot at the National Title. Even if they do make it be prepared for an @$$ whipping...

    Most teams that win a national title don't have the toughest schedules. Thats the same thing SEC fans say to defend playing Division 2 teams and teams like Towson, Troy, etc. You have to schedule to win a championship. An being in the top 20 of toughest schedules is not bad. Having the toughest in the land all but guarantees you won't go to the NC game. And why is it, that people just can't say that we have a really good team? It pains you guys so much. I have always given credit to teams that deserve it. I guess I will become what everyone else is. That would make things better. Hate every team for doing good. Then slam them when they win and say their schedules are mediocre. We have our issues, and thats a fact too. All teams do. Its hard to go the entire season undefeated. period.

    And nobody is campaigning for a NC shot. Let the chips fall where they may. Remember, we will go where we are supposed to go.

    Since 1998 we have had the majority of teams in the NC game; the Big 12 and SEC have been dominating AND have the hardest schedules. ND has coasted along with 1 (maybe 2) decent wins against teams that weren't overrated going in to the year (Michigan & Michigan State). You want to impress us? Play Florida, LSU, Alabama, Georgia, K-State, Oklahoma, Texas Tech, Texas, etc and win >50% then we can talk. I think I am not the minority here and say I want to see a competitive/exciting National Championship game and I dont think ND will be able to handle Oregon or K-State.

    I am sure A&M would love to play ND in a BCS Game.

    As much as I detest hearing "Johnny Football" (worst nickname ever, btw), there's no denying he deserves the Heisman as a freshman. Without that guy, A&M is a 5-6 team at best. He already owns nearly every offensive record in the nation's most defense-prioritized conference, and he beat the reigning (and eventual ) national champions at home. He's already mechanically better than both Tebow and Cam. Imo, there's no denying he's the best player in college football this season.

    Now... time to destroy Auburn, get past Georgia to win the SEC, and end the Great Irish Dream in Miami.

    ROLL TIDE, ROLL!!

    Johnny Manziel deserves it more than anyone out there in my slight bias opinion.

    No no no; Bama and LSU lose this week sending A&M to Atlanta.

    If he does win, can we do away with the "Johnny Football" rubbish and just call him "Heismanziel?"

    Better hope Auburn's been saving their best for last. I can't see them scoring more than 14 points though.

    I still can't believe that Oregon & K State lost! I also can't believe that ND is #1! We (Michigan) should have beaten them. We beat ourselves in that game. Personally, I think that if we used our current qb, instead of Denard, we would've beat the Irish... oh well.. I am happy to see Kelly winning. He started at a small college up in MI, & has been putting together winning programs everywhere he's been.

    Heismanziel is another great one and yeah I have to agree on the auburn game; they have been pretty terrible this year.

    He was 29 of 56 for 276 yds and had 3 INTs... 2 of which were deflected balls.

    Dude, I love me some A.J., but he's #7 in passing yds... in the SEC. Manziel also has a higher completion rate than McCarron. Aaron Murray has more passing yds and a higher QB rating than A.J. I didn't even look at national stats.

    Can't win a Heisman when you rarely play past the first series of the 3rd-qtr. I'll take the latter over the former though. The Heisman is just a popularity contest. Matt Barkley had it won before the season started, and now the media doesn't know who to slob off.

    Only one trophy matters...

    All kinds of local MI brothers on here! I think I've partied at all of the colleges around there, including Ferris State & Eastern. Good times... I even had an unpaid parking ticket from East Lansing from 1990. Lol. Seems like all of my old hs buddies spread out through the state.

    I think I got confused with Murray against Florida. I think Johnny will win in the most uncompetitive heisman in rececent memory. Trust me I rather him win it than the lb from Notre dame. But congrats on a great first year in sec. Future is bright with that Johnny football at qb. He is a once in a lifetime qb.
