    Hey Brian,
    I just had a question. I was just reading your new power rankings article. Baylor's page mentions that they are giving up 39 points per game. That can't be right considering they beat SMU 56-21 (I believe), I can't remember the score of the Lamar game but I don't think it got up high enough to raise the average to 39 considering the score of the Rice game was 70-17. Maybe I'm missing some information or maybe I misunderstood something but you might want to fact check that statistic. Thanks! Have a great day

    In your article of ranking all the fbs teams, you said that Baylor is giving up 39 ppg when in fact it's only giving up 23 ppg. Get your facts straight

    Preseason top 25 is a joke. How is Ga Tech #24 and you have all these SEC teams that finished below them higher? Get off the SEC's nuts... it's embarrassing. Tech kills MIss St brings back more starters but Miss St is ranked higher. You are a joke.

    TCU is the media pick to win the Big 12? Always the perfect reverse barometer, the media have just given me my cue to pick Baylor or Oklahoma. If there was a market where one could buy "shares" in favorite teams' chances to win a title, the team chosen by the media would be the perfect candidate to short.
