PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
Wasnt sure if 11w was going to do an open thread for the game(s) tonight. If not, figured I'd go ahead and set one up.
I can't decide how I feel about this game. SCAR seems to always manage to look like crap and to blow games they should win. I don't see em covering 13.5
I want Clowney to have 0 sacks 0 tackles 0 INT's and 60 minutes....
TTUN fans would rather talk tOSU failures in the past ten years than their own successes. Probably because they haven't had a lot of success.
Although I do enjoy seeing him light up the scUM player last year!
I think ESPN has run that "Freak" feature about 50 times now...he isnt invincible...as Griese pointed out, hes block-able...just use proper technique...he will beat you a few times but not the whole game like ESPN has been advertising...
This is certainly true. Taylor Lewan mostly contained him in the bowl game. Of course, I don't know that UNC has anyone on Lewan's talent level.

Lets do this Heels, start the ball rolling on some SEC losses.
It's a weekday. Shouldn't the UNC players be back in Chapel Hill in class? Oh wait...
Lol yeah... They don't do that.
Here we go SEC SEC SEC SEC
While Ohio State's players hurdled the brick walls of Michigan Stadium in their throwback uniforms to celebrate with Buckeye fans, Michigan tailback Michael Shaw sobbed uncontrollably while walking off the field. - Grand Rapid Press (21-10 OSU)<
I've used FirstRow before and it works alright for me. I'd recommend some good anti-virus though as I don't know what evil lurks here.
UNC vs USC, USC vs Haw, and Rutgers vs Fresno State are all down near the bottom.
Down with the SEC
How Firm Thy Friendship....
Lord, have I missed football.
that was fast...UNC is screwed.
Well that was quick
I wonder how many Michigan fans remember that long TD pass. Zing.
Damn that didn't take long hell of a throw
So, I guess they are just going to show a replay of Clowney every time whether he actually makes a play or not?
It's all part of ESPN's Heisman marketing campaign. They are getting votes for an $EC player.
I wouldn't be surprised if espn didn't give Clowney his own helmet cam. This for sure is the Clowney show.
Damnit, where in the Hell is the asteroid?
Clowney is the best DL in the nation, they are acting as if he is the best DL ever. The second he gets his first sack ESPN is going to try to sell the idea that "that is what we have been talking about since the bowl game" as if he had been unstoppable the entire time before then. Will say this about So. Car though, their RB looks good.
Wow. UNC, make a tackle. Wonder if Fickell gave them some tackling tips in the offseason.
That 4th down run was impressive for sc. Terrible for Unc.
UNC's uni's are pretty sweet.
I am not a huge fan of the black pants with the baby blue trim.
That sc kicker looks like he's 15 tops.
they said he was a true freshman walk on, so that's partly why.
Ok you guys, Next up Clowney
So glad I don't live in South Carolina anymore. The past two years were brutal listening to all of the Carolina and Clemson banter and all of Buckeye haters. Feels good to be back in Buckeye country.
Having said that, I hope NC gets their offense going!
Born, raised, educated, and will die a Buckeye ~ BuckeyeNation
Forcing punts would be nice too
For God's sake ESPN, stop talking about Clowney, he hasnt exactly changed this game. UNC's special teams deserves some credit, two huge hits for them.
This isn't even commentary. It is dedicated to hyping Clowney.
Surprised they dont have one of their channels dedicated to a Clowney Cam
NC is too small upfront. they are going to be run on all night long. once they decide to stack the box, that's when SC will go over the top. SC will win this game easily.
UNC's defense was pretty terrible last year, doesnt appear theyve improved very much
Ha, even a back up QB throws a deep TD pass in the 1st quarter...wow UNC, just wow.
This is pathetic. Hopefully the Hawaii and USC game is more competitive. Atleast we have the song girls.
That is very very very poor D....
~Naples Buckeye - "May God have mercy upon my enemies, because I won't." - General George S. Patton, Jr.
ESPN- "Lets keep the camera on Clowney all night and watch his every move. Also make sure we talk about him and his greatness every couple of minutes".
It is better than when they were doing it about Te'o last year...
If Connor Shaw continues to run the ball like he has so far, he will not make it through the season. He's taking some shots out there and this is only NC. He has had injury issues in the past, so I think Spurrier may talk to him about saving his body for the rest of the season.
Tarheel blood in the water.
That holding call was Junk!!!
So was the facemask
The ball looks really funny coming out of Bryn Renners hand
Jesse Palmer needs more Clowney....
This game blows already. Was hoping for a battle!
"It's not just the Clowney Show"
One of them just said that. could have fooled me with the coverage so far.
That's better....'bout time!
Glad UNC finally decided to show up.
Gotta get a stop here.
Just tuning in, closer than I thought it would be. NC has points on the board!
An angry fan...rooting for an angry team...led by angry coaches
Ugh, UNC finally scored and then stopped USC and this happens.
I'll be surprised if they recover from this. Just depends on if SCAR scores off this.
They didn't, but UNC just lost a LOT of field position. Could've been worse I guess, but UNC needs to get the game within a score. Their D is starting to play now, so it's up to the offense to put some points on the board.
Thank GOD, I want to see an actual game here. Looks like we're going to get one.
Oh man ><
UNC seems to be settling down now. Lets go heels
If only UNC's defense was playing this good in the first quarter.
Good Lord, that drive was a disaster.
Dropped passes are keeping UNC out of this game.
Hope the UNC kid is okay. Hate to see kids hurt :(
That SCAR dude got hit at a weird angle in the back of the head. I heard one of the announcers say it was a defenseless player. Glad they didn't call it, but it's only a matter of time before a bogus "targeting" call gets a key player thrown out and it makes a huge impact on a game. I just hope it doesn't happen to a team I am for.
Did he really just get up, whine to the ref then go down injured?
Yeah, WTF was that shit? Now he is going to the locker room to be looked at.
Sometimes if you get a shot on the neck like that, it doesn't immediately effect you. It wasn't a really solid hit, so, he probably just got a little stinger or something similar. That hit was NOT malicious, though. Good no call.
I'm rooting for IU to take out Indiana State big. Tied now at seven.
Minnesota qb just ran it 45ish yds against unlv to go up 10-6
Where was Clowney on that first down completion, oh taking a play off.
LETS GOOOO TARHEALS!!!
I think South Carolina's D is about to collectively pass out.
Edit: Bailed out by poor goal line playcalling.
Yeah there very winded.
"Sometimes you eat the bear and sometimes the bear eats you."
"Clowney with the long T.D run...oh wait"
Clowney cam on the sideline.
JOHN SIMON > Clowney
Clowney bent over, he's gassed.
Clowney leading with the helmet there?
Clowney didn't run his gassers in the off season it looks like...
I didn't think anyone but Clowney was playing.
I love how they try to compare Clowney to Julius Peppers. It's not even close in terms of athleticism
Is "taking plays off" counted as a Heisman stat?
This year, yes. Only for SEC players.
Why would they be tired if suspended for the first half?
Didnt you hear, they already awarded Clowney the hesiman before the season started.
Don't August Heismans need to be in shape by September?
that is a funny post KNARCISI.
I'm sure Clowney isn't responsible for all the hype and attention the media is giving him. I'm sure he is a nice young man. Hope the best for him this year, as long as they don't play Ohio State.
He beats out Braxton for a Heisman because he was overhyped like Tao was last year, and you'll be a little more upset.
He's supposed to be a nice kid. And I live in Rock Hill.
No ones saying he's a bad guy or anything. Like anything else the media makes you kind of root against players because of their ridiculous obsessions with these guys.
No one here knows anything about obsession. LOL.
Academic fraud vs the $EC. Not sure who I'm rooting less for. Go Clemson, beat both of these teams.
Class of 2010.
Put me on the North Carolina bandwagon
Just as with EVERY year, SCAR shows they're not deserving of the ranking they get. THey get a win here, but it's sloppy and ugly.
Things I've learned tonight (for what it's worth, having only seen one game)
1. SCAR's defense is not well conditioned nor disciplined. They are routinely out of position and don't look sharp AT ALL.
2. Conner Shaw will not make it past week 6. He runs the ball too much, but unlike other running QBs, he has no idea how to protect himself and takes WAY too many hits.
3. I see SCAR losing at least 2, maybe 3 games.
Gotta agree. I'm tempted to say we also learned SC has a pretty solid offense, but I can't tell how much of that was because UNC was just completely outsized.
Clowney with 3 tackles, 0 TFL, through 3+ quarters...on pace for a whopping 48 tackles in the regular season. Heisman worthy if you ask me
the kids are playing their tail off, and the coaches are screwing it up! - JLS
JESUS CHRIST 330 POUND JOHN HANKINS HAD BETTER CONDITIONING THAN CLOWNEY!!!!!
Clowney spent the offseason listening to his hype and not conditioning.
Time to juice up Clowney.
Delaying the game since Clowney is tired.
LMAOO, end thread!
That is GOLD!!!
ESPN has Tebow and Tiger Woods clips all cued up for the break.
Don't forget Lebron James.
This wins the comment of the night award.
Lightning? Ok start the game over in 15 min
This UNC team is actually very bad.
Am i crazy or is Taj Boyd the smoothest looking QB in the country.
He's damn good. After he decommitted from Tennessee, we had a shot at him before he chose Clemson. I think Brax committing early turned him away.
he's good. If I remember correctly, his recruitment came down to Clemson and OSU. I'm perfectly happy how it worked out. I love me some Braxton Miller.
I'll be rooting for Clemson over Georgia Sat. Night, more for the fact that I want to see an SEC black eye, but I realize I need to be carefull what I wish for, because say Clemson runs the table and beats 2 SEC teams in Georgia and South Carolina, they will play for the BCS Nat. Champ over an undefeated OSU, if say Alabama goes undefeated.
Minnesota 98 yard return to open 2nd half
B1G update. Indiana is beating Indiana State 45-7 near half time. I know its only an FCS team but when you consider last year IU only beat them 24-17 it shows they have improved. I think they can finish 6-6 or 7-5 at the end of the regular season and get to a bowl game.
Those scores happened after my post.
Clowney = Quinton Couples with SEC hype
yeah, I know he's from Michigan, but i'd take 2006 Lamar Woodley over Clowney at this point.
Clowney = Quinton Couples with SEC hype
And the sorry ass Jets will probably end up with both of them next year...
Tarheels were meh, and SCAR is looking like the typical serviceable team that is not really special.
Minnesota is winning by 17, but man they are not very good.
I await the debate that South Carolina deserves to be ahead of Ohio State.
"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.
Any predictions for Ole Miss vs Vandy?
I think the game will be close and could go either way.
I'm rooting for Vandy.
Lets see if Ole Miss' money was well spent or not.
Ole Mi$$ or cowards...hmm...not sure who I'm rooting less for here.
And cowards for more than one reason. Despicable off the field transgressions, but yet you hear about Hyde.
Alright, raise your hand if you're already sick of the SEC.
I'll start it off:
Well, at least neither IU nor Minn embarrassed the B10 tonight.
nights still early!
I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!
looks like Chumley, from the Tennessee Tuxedo cartoon:
Are UNLV, and IINST really that bad?
Utah State scores 20 straight points to go up 23-14 on PAC10 Utah. That is usually quite an entertaining intrastate rivalry.
BTW, Petros Papadokis, though a tad raspy > Gary Danielson
without reading the whole thread, I've now found a stadium noise more annoying than the pussycat meow in happy valley......and that's the noise from Little Jerry Seinfeld that South Carolina plays every now and then, just terrible
I know it is early in the season but I'm not that impressed with SC thus far. They have some really good players but I didn't see exceptional team speed...except for just a few guys. It was hot & humid but that is standard fair there and certainly not a legit reason for Clowney sucking wind.
“I have yet to be in a game where luck was involved. Well-prepared players make plays. I have yet to be in a game where the most prepared team didn't win.” -Urban Meyer-
Did you hear Spurrier at the halftime interview? He said that Clowney was complaining of stomach virus type symptoms but that was "the first he'd heard of it". So, you're telling me that your star player has a stomach virus, and the head coach has NO clue? "
If that's true, someone needs an ass chewing, post haste. If it's not, which is what everyone should be thinking, then they should be ashamed of themselves. Both Clowney for being out of shape, and Spurrier for being a lying dbag.
