Wow I had no clue this game was even on but what a chance to check out what should be an exciting game. I didnt even know I had this channel on TW cable and I cant find a HD version but on channel 336 in Hamilton,Ohio some big boy football is about to kick off.

Yeah, still at work. Went to watch it on the WATCHESPN app and apparently it is not available on the app for TWC customers. Awesome start to the CFB season!!

Off the top of my head without any real "studying" the game, that sounds about right. TAMU lost a metric ton of offense. I'll take those Cocks by 12 (insert obligatory SCAR innuendo here).

Wow aTm looks dangerous early.~~And when I say dangerous I mean if you watch the WR's they look to have a guy wide open every single play and their young QB seems to not be missing a beat although he did over shoot a pass for a wide open receiver down the sideline.

Another example of peeps always jumpin' the gun.  S Carolina will be fine.  It's the first game of the year.  First few series of course they'll have some up and downs.  Just because they give up 10 quick points doesn't mean they're vastly overrated.   Aren't they one of only 3 teams to finish top-10 the last 3 years?

Groveport Heisman's picture

Almost all of USCe yards came on 2 huge pass plays. One was a legit blown coverage and the other was  just a faster WR matched up against a (last years Armarni Reeves) type of deal with a perfect pass. Both of those scoring drives for USCe were kept alive from phantom P.I. calls from the refs. This game could very easily be 41-0 or something similar if it wasnt for the refs. I'm going to go out on a limb and say Espin will have Kenny Hill as the Heisman front runner by late tonight. Not hating on the kid at all because as far as I can tell he might be a even better QB then Manziel.

Groveport Heisman's picture

I have noticed over the last few years that when 2 ranked sec opponents face off the refs will  usually side with the team that is down big. I think they want it to be a close game at the end so the losing team doesnt drop far and the winning team gets more credit for beating a better opponent. It gives off the mirage that every game is a close hard fought game by two very tough opponents. This game should be completely out of hand but instead its 38-21 aTm.

Wow man I have watched every snap and USCe is lucky to have 21 oftheir 28 points from really touchy refs calling P.I. This is not a easy place to win let alone blow the doors off a top ten opponent. It exposes USCe but also shows just how good this aTm squad might be. I would equate this to Wisky coming in and steam rolling us in the shoe the first week of this season. The B1G fans would think the badgers are National title bound.

Groveport Heisman's picture

Final score of aTm 52 USCe 28 but from watching every snap it should have easily been a 66-10 type of deal.It was complete domination  like I cant remember from a top ten team on their home turf. This also shows Johnny Cash was in a system and he might not be what he was cracked up to be. Kenny Hill didnt turn the ball over or throw one of those notorious jump balls all game. He looked sharp as hell. He might actually be a Heisman front runner is he can keep up this type of play. Broke Manziels record and threw for 511 yards and 3 TD's in his first game ever played. Also the freshman WR Speedy Noil looked like a serious legit weapon. He dropped one or two passes but made up for it by blowing by the defensive backs on almost every play. Folks here will remember him from the Opening last year where he put on a show. Both kids are legit.

Considering USCe has won 34 of their last 37 home openers and finished in the top ten the last 3 seasons I would say a little bit of a combination of USCe being highly over rated and aTm being extremely under rated. aTm is legit as a team. Their defense looked pretty mean and nasty on both the pass and run and if isnt wasnt for some horrible pass interference calls they might have held USCe under 10 points.

Groveport Heisman's picture

Not sure what 2 sec teams being opposite of what their ranking showed has to do with the PAC 12 but I'm open to listen. I would think with them returning almost every single good QB from a solid conference last year that the Pac was probably the best conference.

I loved watching this game. Texas A&M was breaking in a young new QB that spread the ball to a deep roster of athletic receivers. Although the ran less than I would have liked, they clearly figured out how to beat them in the air. Anyways, like A&M, we are being lead by a QB that has yet to start a collegiate game but have a wealth of young talent at the skill positions. And that's exciting! Because that offense kicked ass all game long! To think that that could be the style of play that Ohio State unleashes on Saturday gives me goosebumps. Also, with the depth we have at RB, we may be better spread offense because of it.
