Monday Notes

   by Larry Ness - 11/08/2004

CFB NOTES: Utah just can't get a break! The Utes NEED one of the BIG BOYS to lose and last Saturday USC,
Oklahoma, Cal and Texas all trailed by at least 13 points at one time, yet all four came back to win! Of course the Longhorns trailed 35-7, but then scored 49 unanswered points!...

In none of the Utes' nine wins this year has the game been closer than 14 points in the final 10 minutes but Utah could still be on the outside looking in come December. What hurts most is not the teams above them but the teams below them!...

With guaranteed bids going to the winners of the ACC and Big East, it's very likely that not only will both of
those "champions" finish behind Utah in the final BCS standings but both could easily finish outside of the top-10!...

DON'T MISS my Monday Night Game of the Month as I continue my RED-HOT run that has seen me CASH with 15 of my last 21 FB cards!

NFL NOTES: The Steelers have now taken care of the last two NFL unbeatens! Two weeks ago it was New England (34-20) and yesterday it was Philadelphia
(27-3). Is it time to recognize the Steelers as the NFL's best team yet? I guess this guy Roethlisberger is pretty good?...

Exactly HALF of last year's 12 playoff teams are .500 or worse at the mid-point of the 2004 season (and the
Colts could make it SEVEN if they lose tonight!)....

The list includes Carolina (1-7), Dallas (3-5), Kansas City (3-5) and Tennessee (3-5). Green Bay and St
Louis are both 4-4....

SIX teams that lost 10 or more games last year reached the mid-point of the 2004 season with winning records.
Pittsburgh leads the way at 7-1, followed by Atlanta and the NY Jets at 6-2, San Diego at 6-3 plus Jacksonville
and the NY Giants at 5-3....

My Heisman top-10 will be available late this afternoon....
