    ‎‎""The Christian religion is the religion of sinners, of such as have sinned, and in whom sin in some measure still dwells. The Christian life is a life of continued repentance, humiliation for and mortification of sin, of continual faith in, thankfulness for, and love to the Redeemer, and hopeful joyful expectation of a day of glorious redemption, in which the believer shall be fully and finally acquitted, and sin abolished for ever."
    -- Matthew Henry on 1 John 1:9

    Certainly. But the way I have the games listed should be with the visitor listed first and the home team second. I'll double-check and fix the OP.

    Yeah, I thought about that, but I believe I had two Little-11 games last week. Besides, I did include Notre Dame (about the only time of the year that will happen, and ND might as well be a Little-11/12 team), and all the regular Little-11 games this week stink (with the possible exception of Minnesota at Penn St.; if they had been playing in Minn, I might have included it, but no way the Gophers win at Penn). And I think the Alabama/SC game will be better than most folks expect.

    Oklahoma vs. Texas: We always pray it will be cold enough to prepare our traditional Frito chili pie for watching that game. Looks like we're set for this year. It's been near freezing here!

    Here in the Dallas area it's going to be 65 degrees and sunny for the game. Pretty near perfect football weather.

    1) Cincinnati at South Florida => South Florida (so Miami can beat another ranked team later in the year)
    2) Oklahoma v. Texas => Texas (Oklahoma is toast)
    3) USC at Notre Dame => USC (hate the "domers")
    4) Virginia Tech at Georgia Tech => Va Tech (but I'm rooting for Ga Tech [go 'Canes])
    5) South Carolina at Alabama => 'Bama (Just because)

    The tie-breaker, should it come to that: Georgia at Vanderbilt (pick winner and score) => Georgia 24-10

    The Hogs did put on a good show today. While the loss has to hurt, they should be proud of their effort.

    I was hoping that they could pull it out.

    You don't know how bad I was hoping they beat Florida.

    Florida has come to earth the past few weeks and looks very beatable now. I will be surprised if they emerge unscathed this season. Certainly Alabama looks like a better team at this point, should they meet in the SEC Championship game.

    Barring any second half disaster on the part of Alabama, it looks like Cold Silver Moon will win this week, being the only person to go 5-0. Here's an early congratulations and an early powdered wig to you, Mason:

    Congrats.

    Actually, I wanted to give a shout out to the Missus, as she picked 4 out of 5 correct this week, and wasn't too far off on the tie-breaker either. Congrats, sweetie!

    I retreat to the depths of my house and weep at a loss that should not have been. VT didn't look prepared for the triple option; executed very admirably by GT. If only the 4th quarter had been repeated in the other three quarters, the outcome would have been different. Congrats Jackets.

About us
The PuritanBoard exists to promote robust discussion of theology in a Confessionally Reformed context. The modern trend of short statements of faith belies the many places where the Scriptures teach with great clarity. Though our respective Reformed confessions sometimes disagree, we believe that Churches have been given the gifts of teachers and elders to lead to the unity of the faith and the result of that unity is a Confessional Church confessing together: "This is what the Scriptures teach." The Confessions are secondary to the authority of Scripture itself but they arise out of Scripture as a standard exposition of the Word of God.
