**I can’t understand how Florida State’s program got so terrible. FSU is getting humiliated in its rivalry game against Miami, 35-3.

**Goodness. SEC record for passing yards in a game. In the season opener. In his first game there (transferred from Stanford). And in Mike Leach’s first game at Mississippi State.

Crazy.

**We could have had even more chaos in college football today as Texas Tech led Texas 56-41 late. The Longhorns rallied and won in OT.
