D1A NCAA Football Midseason

Recommended Posts

Scott M

This has been a wild year in NCAA football. Season is over halfway done and the makings of the nat'l championship are far from clear. I don't think there is a clear favorite.

Ohio State could go back if they can knock off Michigan in that classic rivalry. South Florida is reaping huge gains from joining the Big East, but have some tough games left. There are a bunch of one loss teams that could make some noise: Oklahoma and LSU, Virginia Tech and West Virginia, Cal and Kentucky, South Carolina and Oregon. If Michigan wins out, do they deserve to go to a BCS game? I'm going to predict that no one goes unbeaten, although BC and Hawaii don't really play anyone. I will say that Oklahoma, USC and LSU will be battling to get into that national title game.

Anybody else taking an interest in College Football Saturdays?

Ohio State just lost to Illinois. Things are really going to come down to the wire with BCS, most of the major players have a loss and a few lesser football conferences have some teams that are unblemished.

that sucks, i wanted them to take home the hardware. probably biased but i think the big-10 has the hardest schedule. everyone in the south thinks the big-10 is a joke and the SEC is the best, but we can hit anyone in the mouth and do it with class.

Ohio State could probably make the title game if Oklahoma knocks off Missouri next week.

What a weird college football season. I doubt there will be an undisputed national champion.

I think Mizzou could beat Oklahoma in the Big 12 Championship, then play West Viginia for the NC. Or it could be Ohio St. vs Georgia. Or Mizzou vs Ohio St or, heck, maybe Kansas again... Whatever happens, this is going to be interesting.

Your right scott, it has been a very interesting year in college football.

I was watching a show last night on tv, and they were talking about how students are going in different routs, then they usta in the past.

You see schools that are in the title games, or on the top of the BCS 25, that you will normaly not see up there. The fact is, that students are getting into these schools becuase they want to play right when they get there, not go to a school that is in the top 10 every year, but go somewhere that you are going to play every year.

This is why you are seeing other teams getting knocked off becuase there is so much other talent that is going to other school, where there not always going to the powerhouses like they have in the past.

      Stopped by the lake on Friday and asked a gentleman that was out fishing.  He said 2.5" of ice.

      Figured I would start a fishing report to keep it separate from someone trying to get ice thicknesses.  Fished three different lakes this weekend.  First lake we got to on Saturday had a side by side on it so we felt safe walking.  Hole at access had 7" and we stopped in a few holes along the way fishing and we found an average of 8".  This lake was up on the WE Reservation, long skinny and deep.  Fishing was hit and miss pike were chasing around the gills.  Caught a few big bass which was fun on the UL's and caught a few small gills.  Found a few keeper crappies and kept enough for a meal.  Average was around 11" for crappies and 7" for gills biggest being a 13" crappie.  Second lake is a very known walleye lake around DL.  we had 8" out there also.  Made the hike out to a shoreline break/point and set up with tip ups and jigging spoons.  I suck at walleye fishing and struck out.  Buddies that were 10-15' on either side of me landed 2 EACH and the one tip up 30 feet away also landed one.  Perch were THICK!  I only caught 4-6" perch. Sunday my fishing partner over slept so I went chasing bluegills and crappies on a small lake.  Drilled holes from 42' to 14'.  Fishing was SLOW until the sun came out and then the sunnies were showing up in 38' suspended and aggressive.  Hole hopped because they were all 4-6" but that's all i could find out deep.  As dark came closer my friends started appearing and we could follow the fish up shallower.  Ended up with a few meals for a buddy and his daughter who came out.  A lot of weeding through small ones for keepers.  Very spooky fish.  Aggressive jigging to attract and then they pretty much didn't want it moved.  Wax worms were key last night. Good luck fishing.

      Yikes!  I haven't fished OT County yet but been on four different lakes in Becker.  Last weekend bigger shallower lake was at 7".  This weekend skinny long deep lake was at 8" and it had a side by side on the lake. Large body of water that when it warmed up reopened had 8".  Went to my honey hole and had 10.25-10.5" on it.  Dang near drove out but figured I'd wait so I drilled about 150 holes yesterday and didn't find any thin ice spots.  My shoulder hurts from drilling holes this weekend and carrying around my big 10" auger lol.   Becker County report.  Fish were SPOOKY!!!  Tried a few lakes for panfish and didn't really get into them but they were spooky.  They prefered smaller jigs tipped with wax worms, tried soft plastics but they wanted real things this weekend was my finding.  Fished a lake Saturday night right before dark had tip ups out and jigging with spoons.  One eye came on a tip up other 4 came on spoons.  Had guys 15 feet from me on both sides both catch 2 and the tip up was another 30 feet the other way and I didn't get a bite or a mark!!!!  That's my luck though.  People catching walleyes what I'm hearing are downsized baits on dead sticks.  Buddy got a 6.5 pounder C&R on a crappie/fathead fishing for perch mid day.  I don't know if weather has them in a funk or what.  Panfish are spooky and smaller jigs worked better 4 mm and 3 mm had better results then 5 mm.  5 mm I was finding was spooking fish when they would get near.  I drilled holes from 42' to 14' and had best luck when sun came out in 38 feet but I could follow the schools shallower as the sun set ultimately ended up in 19-21' for crappies and gills.
