With apologies to my friend Ryan McGee for stepping on his Bottom 10 turf, it has taken only six weeks this season to expose the Powers That Be as the Powers That Used to Be. Notre Dame, Stanford and Oregon all have plummeted out of the top 25, confirming on Saturday that their earlier poor play was no fluke. The Cardinal can cling to injuries as a reason for their demise, although their losses in the secondary and the offensive line have illustrated the lack of depth that has been a perennial bugaboo on the Farm. The Irish and the Ducks appear to simply not have the talent that their opponents have. Someones luck will turn this week: Stanford goes to South Bend. The home team has won the past four games in this rivalry, all by seven points or fewer.1. Michigans 78-0 defeat of Rutgers on Saturday night ranks as the second-largest road win by a ranked team in the poll era (1936-present), according to ESPN Stats & Info research. The margin fell a touchdown shy of the Wolverines 85-0 victory at the University of Chicago in 1939. The Maroons had one foot out the door that season. Even with the legendary Amos Alonzo Stagg as head coach, Chicago president Robert Maynard Hutchins decided he didnt want the university playing major college football anymore. Chicago abolished its program after 1939 and pulled out of the Big Ten in 1946.2. With that piece of history in mind, consider the plight of Rutgers, which has lost on consecutive weeks to No. 2 Ohio State and No. 4 Michigan by a combined score of 136-0. And consider the plight of Boston College, which has extended its ACC losing streak to 10 games with losses to No. 25 Virginia Tech (on Sept. 17) and No. 3 Clemson by a combined 105-10. Toss in a rebuilding Syracuse (2-4, 0-2), which has shown sparks of renaissance under new coach Dino Babers, and its a mystery why the Big Ten and the ACC dismembered the Big East for parts. There may be a lot of TV eyeballs up here, but college football has fallen behind the rest of the country.3. Rutgers has tantalized one coach after another with the promise of success if he builds the proverbial recruiting fence around the state. And yet no one has ever done it. A generation ago, Penn State, Nebraska and Iowa built winners by taking Jerseys best players. Fast forward to two of the biggest stars from Saturday. Jabrill Peppers of East Orange, New Jersey, has become this years hybrid, a Michigan linebacker who made two tackles and ran for 74 yards and two touchdowns on only three carries against Rutgers. Minkah Fitzpatrick of Old Bridge, New Jersey, intercepted three passes for Alabama, returning one pick 100 yards for a touchdown.4. Speaking of Peppers, Im trying to decide what I enjoy most about Wolverines coach Jim Harbaughs discussion of his redshirt sophomore. It could be that Harbaugh began his comment by saying, In my humble opinion ... Or that Harbaugh, after some thought to compare Peppers to a versatile player of yore, came up with Jim Thorpe. Never mind that until the early 1960s, everyone pretty much played both ways. No, Harbaugh reached for Thorpe, the All-American at Carlisle, the 1912 Olympic decathlon gold medalist, the major league outfielder who also played pro football. The AP named Thorpe the greatest athlete of the first half of the 20th century. Harbaugh always thinks big. Its one reason he wins.5. Houstons 46-40 loss at Navy not only harmed the Cougars playoff chase, it may have doused quarterback Greg Ward, Jr.s chance at a major postseason award. Thats too bad. Ward threw for 359 yards and three touchdowns, and ran for 94 yards and another score. He threw two picks, one of them returned for a touchdown, but his QBR this season is higher (82.9) than last season (78.1), despite playing with a small tear in a shoulder ligament. Every time he throws a pass, it hurts, Houston coach Tom Herman said. It hurts less every day, because its healing. But thats the reality of it. What has Herman learned about Ward? I was a little nervous that he was not going to respond well to playing hurt. ... Ive seen a fiery competitor in him now that maybe I didnt last year.6. When Miami lost to Florida State by the margin of a blocked extra point late in the game, my first reaction was, if its a painful loss in that rivalry, then Mark Richt is on the wrong side of it. Richt was Florida States offensive coordinator from 1990-2000, which included Wide Rights I and II, and he was a graduate assistant on Bobby Bowdens staff from 1985-88, which included the epic 26-25 loss in 1987, followed by the Hurricanes 31-0 humiliation of the No. 1 Seminoles to open the following season. But it hasnt been all bad for Richt. Actually, during his years as offensive coordinator, Florida State beat Miami five straight times (1995-99) by an average margin of 22 points.7. It is a cliché as old as the postgame news conference: Ill have to look at the film/video. But theres a reason head coaches say that: The view from the sideline is not very good. If it were, thats where the coaching video -- and the TV cameras -- would perch. When Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer was asked Saturday why the Buckeyes passing game had struggled in the 38-17 victory over Indiana, he said, Ill know more when I meet you guys [later in the week]. ... Id say 50 percent of the time Im wrong when I say something on a press conference. Mens Ua Speedform Apollo Vent Running Shoes .com) - The Edmonton Oilers and Vancouver Canucks both take aim at their first wins of the season on Saturday, as the Canucks open their home slate at Rogers Arena. Under Armour Curry One Low . Varlamov made 33 saves and Ryan OReilly had a goal and scored in the shootout as the Avalanche beat the New Jersey Devils 2-1 on Thursday night. http://www.stephencurryshoe.com/under-armour-shoes-on-sale/ua-speedform.html . Michell Burger, a woman who lives on an estate next to Pistorius gated community, said she and her husband were awoken by the screams in the pre-dawn hours of Feb. 14 last year, when Pistorius killed Reeva Steenkamp by shooting four times through a door in his bathroom. Under Armour Cheap Shoes . -- Vincent Lecavalier got everything but the desired result in his return to Tampa Bay. Ua Speedform Phenom Black . Their 38th instalment is arguably their biggest fight card to date, including three-title fights and a main event which was selected by the fans. The promotion boasts 14-straight years of business and is operated by MFC president Mark Pavelich, who is often overlooked in this country for the foundation hes established for MMA in Canada. STOCKHOLM, Sweden -- Canada took advantage of overtaxed Sweden for a 3-0 win at the IIHF World Championship on Thursday, and felt they should have done more damage. "We didnt finish some opportunities wed like to finish that could have put them down early in the first," Canadian coach Lindy Ruff observed following the game. "Youre thinking boy, we left a lot on the table." Buffalo Sabres goaltender Jhonas Enroth robbed Canadians on several excellent looks in the first two periods. It was Canadian Mike Smiths turn for heroics in the third. The Phoenix Coyotes goalie stopped 17 shots in the period en route to a 33-save shutout and his first win of the tournament. "If not for their goalie, we would have won about seven or eight nothing, I think," forward Matt Duchene said. "We had a great performance in goal by Smitty and we had a lot of chances." Steven Stamkos of the Tampa Bay Lightning, Philadelphia Flyers defenceman Luke Schenn and Carolina Hurricanes Jordan Staal scored goals in the first two periods for Canada. Matt Read of the Flyers had two assists in front of an announced sellout of 12,500 at the Globe Arena. Canada (3-0-1) vaulted over Sweden into second spot in the Stockholm pool. Unbeaten Switzerland led with 11 points followed by Canada with 10 and the Swedes with nine. Norway was fourth with six. Canada faces Belarus (1-2) on Friday for a second game in as many days. The Czech Republic (1-2-1) got by Denmark 2-1 in a shootout, but remained fifth in the Stockholm pool with five points. France shocked Russia 2-1 in the Helsinki pool with Antoine Roussel of the Dallas Stars scored winning goal in the second period. The Russians remained tied with the United States for first at nine points each. Finland was second with eight points ahead of France and Slovakia tied with six apiece. Latvia downed the Slovaks 5-3 on Thursday. The top four teams in each pool of eight qualify for the quarter-finals in each city. Canada lost quarter-final games the last three years at the world championship despite finishing first in its group the last two. Ranked No. 4 in the world, Sweden was No. 5 Canadas highest-ranked opponent yet. The Swedes were getting their feet back under them with three wins after an opening loss to the Swiss. But after beating Norway 5-1 the previous day, the Swedes were slow to get into the game against Canada. The Canadian attack poked holes in their defence and left Enroth exposed several times. "Canada won this game, in my opinion, a little bit too easy," Swedish coach Par Marts said. "It could be the game yesterday, I dont know. "But I dont see that we competed with them and if youre going to compete with that good team youre going to need as close to 100 per cent from every player.ddddddddddddI didnt see that today." The Swedish fans grew restless during the game and there were boos in the final minutes Canadas special teams were integral in the victory Thursday. The Canadians scored first with a power-play goal by Stamkos and held the Swedes scoreless on three chances with an extra attacker. The Canadian power play was an unimpressive 14 per cent going into the game, but that first goal was a work of art. Justin Schultz, Brian Campbell and Claude Giroux snapped the puck around the offensive zone with precision and Stamkos finished it with a one-timer from his right knee. Enroth foiled Stamkos, Duchene, Taylor Hall and Eric Staal on juicy opportunities even strength in the first period. After 22 saves on 25 shots, Enroth was replaced with just under 10 minutes remaining in the third period by Jacob Markstrom, because of dehydration. Ruff coached Enroth in Buffalo until the Sabres fired the Canadian coach in February. "I thought he was fabulous," Ruff said of the Swede. Canada had just three practices prior to this tournament because the NHLs lockout-shortened regular season ended three weeks later than usual. The team took another step forward in its adjustment to the wider, international ice Thursday. Staal scored his first goal of the tournament on odd-man rush with Ryan OReilly of the Colorado Avalanche. "Ive been fighting the puck a little bit the first few games," Staal, the younger brother of Canadian captain Eric Staal. "Its always nice to chip in and get that big insurance goal for our team." Reads feed from the opposite boards to Schenn in full stride off the blue-line resulted in Canadas second goal of the game. "After you play two or three games and watch a little video, things kind of start clicking," Read said. "You dont have to think anymore. You let your natural talents take over." Sweden is anticipating the arrival of Vancouver Canucks forwards Daniel and Henrik Sedin and defenceman Alex Edler. Marts expects them to play in Swedens final preliminary-round game Tuesday against Denmark. Ruff said there would be discussions later Thursday on adding Canucks to the Canadian roster, which is at 22 of the maximum 25. Canucks defenceman Dan Hamhuis won a gold medal in 2007 and silver medals in 2008 and 2009 with Canada at world championships. Notes: Canada has faced Sweden more than any other country in 62 world championship meetings and has a record of 32-25-5 . . . The Czech Republic added Winnipeg Jets goaltender Ondrej Pavelec to its roster Thursday. He was in net for the shootout win over the Danes.
