Your Afternoon Football Open Thread

Did you know that Georgia is just 4-18 in the World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party since 1990? Good thing there's plenty of booze.

In other games, we have a battle of ACC divison leaders in Florida State and... Duke, Darrell Hazell and Kent State going for a huge upset at Rutgers and a clash between Michigan State and Wisconsin, which we pray has a bit of the magic we were treated to twice last year.

Danielson is an idiot! That was clearly a horse collar tackle in the Florida game.

I don't think you know what the horse collar tackle is. It is when you grab the back center of the shoulder pads and pull them down. He had him in a chocke hold, and was incapable of a horse collar.

Looked to me like the defender's right hand was under the right shoulder pad and yanked backwards. Every time the replay was shown, the crowd was booing loudly. Muschamp thought it was too judging from his reaction to the refs. The biggest problem was that Danielson didn't mention it until they had replayed it 10 times.

That isn't a horsecollar tackle. You grab the pads behind the neck in the middle of the pads. He had a choke hold on him as noticed. That isn't a horse collar. Dirty as far as I am concerned regardless....

I mean seriously, do we still have to consider Colorado D1?

~Because we couldn't go for three~

Watching Colorado makes me feel better about our defense.

Maybe it's just me, but it seems like the punting game in college football has gotten much worse this year. I have seen a lot of shanks and short kicks.

Have I mentioned how much I hate having no one in northern Virginia to watch the buckeye games annoying

Kent State is beating Rutgers. Hazell has done a great job up there.

It's funny that MSU has L. Bell yet a bad overall running game.

Look at Sparty being Sparty!  4th and 33 after a blocked punt?

"Teams that block a punt win 90 percent of the time" . . . unless they're Sparty.

"Coach Muschamp, what do you need to do to overcome UGA's 1 pt lead in the second half"
Muschamp: "Well, we just gotta continue to capitalize on what we're doing, and OVERCOME THE ADVERSITY ON THE FIELD!"

How about minnesota? That worries me a bit.

I was looking at those lines...It was a bad week to be the favorite. And most of the favorites on that list lost straight up.

Seeing ND win is disapointing. They played nearly perfect, so I can't fault them. Or you could, pointing out that the QB hasn't played that good all season. And now that they have handled OU on both sides of the ball, yet Purdue, Mich, and Mich St (closer game than score shows-no really), then clearly the Big Ten is better than perception. As usual. And the Big 12 is not as good as advertised. As usual. ESPN and their confrence rankings showing Big 12 second and Big 10 6th is wrong. As far as I am concerned. And I thought Nebraka would take down Mich, until the Buck dropped 63 on them. I was concerned Robinson would run wild like Miller did. Glad my second guess is wrong. But the good part is, Mich will lose 5 on the season. They do not beat SEC 2, 3, 4 in the tie ins. Because they will have Florida, SC, Georgia, or LSU.
