First things first, my alma mater predictions for yesterday:
Ohio State 25, Penn State 10
Syracuse 24, Miami of Ohio 14
Reality: Ohio St. 28, Penn St. 6 The Buckeyes remain number one in the USA Today Top 25 Coaches' Poll.
Syracuse 34, Miami of Ohio 14 The RedHawks are 0-4, which is an unusually bad start for a perennially strong program.
Department of Inflating My Sitemeter Stats By Getting Search Engine Hits from Horndogs:
The October issue of Playboy has a "Girls of the Big 12 Conference" pictorial. Hubba Hubba. The women are all hot but for me first place goes to Jessica Lorin from the University of Colorado--I don't like cold weather but I'd go skiing with her any day! Second place: Susana Rose from Texas Tech. Third place to the University of Kansas' Allie Love--due mainly to her sultry expression. Honorable mention: Taylor Alexander of Oklahoma State, Courtney Taylor, covergirl Tamara Witmer, and Nia Ryder of the University of Oklahoma, Courtney Storm of Kansas State, Reagan Yun of Missouri, Sophia Garcia of the University of Colorado, and Lonnie Ann of Kansas.
Best of the Rest: Kansas: Hanna Samon, Joselyn Brandy, Kate Thompson, Kelly Marie, Alexis Hale, and Lacy Lynn; Nebraska: Amanda Adams and Jordan Monroe; Colorado: Nikki England and Stephanie Marie; Oklahoma State: Kelli Gallo and Alexandra Hill; University of Texas: Jenna Lea Deforke; University of Oklahoma: Ashley Thompson, Mandy Troost, and Jaclyn Valez; Missouri: Savannah Taylor; Iowa State: Cady Thomas; Kansas State: Delaine Barnes; Texas A&M: Tasia Bauman.
UPDATE: Based on a keyword search, Reagan Yun of Missouri is very popular.
10/29 Update: Reagan Yun made Playboy Coed of the Week
