PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
I have a feeling Clemson goes down hard.
Clemson's entrance has to be the most overrated traditions in college football. Having to take a bus... I mean seriously...
and that mountain they run down to the field is all fun and games until some fat meat bag trips and causes a massive pile up like turn #2 at Talladega...
They have to take a bus? I wouldn't play at all.
-Grambling State Players
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.
So they hop in a bus, drive around the stadium and get off because they had no idea what they were doing when they built the stadium and forgot the players usually walk from the lockers to the field.
I'm doing the Tomahawk Chop!
"Because I couldn't go for 3"
Clemson choking already...
Clemsoned the first possession, nice one tigres.
I tigress....go Noles.
"Success - it's what you do with what you got" - Woody Hayes
I see what you did there.
I swear they review way too many plays in CFB.
They didn't set the record... Ohio State vs. USC was much louder than that. Millers GW TD pass to Smith was louder than that.
Oh so quiet Dead Valley.
Can't defend a pass like that.
FSU has a lot of former Buckeye recruits I wanted like LaMarcus Joyner, Winston (I don't remember how seriously he considered OSU), and Jack's grandson.
That's a TD. 'Noles gonna win
That win against a team that lost to Vandy, seems as impressive as our win against a team that lost to Minnesota. Clemson is losing some luster.
Jimbo Fissure will prevent FSU from a BCS NC Game spot. Baylor would, IMO, smoke FSU by 20 points.
Just like that, 7-0.
Another reason to root for FSU to blow out Clemson... Raekwon McMillan has his official visit to Clemson tonight.
I think Clemson would be more likely to lose later though. FSU has nobody left.
they have florida at the end of the season, but i agree with you that they run through the rest of their schedule.
Florida is putrid.
I actually think Miami would have a better chance at beating them. Florida looks awful right now.
so i thought the big don kwon wasn't visiting clemson this weekend?
If FSU beats Clemson and passes OSU, it's total BS. If you look at FSU's schedule, it's not any better than OSU. You could argue OSU's is actually tougher.
They would have a win over a top 5 team while OSU's best win is over a #15/16 Northwestern team. If FSU wins they would deserve to be ranked higher than OSU.
That's all they got though. It'd be hard for me to rank someone higher based on one better win. By season's end, FSU may only have beaten 2 ranked teams. I'm just sayin' their schedule is not so much better that it deserves moving past OSU. As a whole, I'd say the schedules are equal.
It's still a win over a top 5 team which will be impressive enough for the AP and the Coaches. And if they win big, it will be all they need to jump OSU.
Please prove the veracity of this behind any numbers you feel you can use to explain your thought. This is a damn lie. Suck it up, winner of this game WILL jump OSU. Deal with it.
Insert witty remark
I have a feeling if FSU wins, we'll get jumped in the effing polls. I feel like Danny Downer or Rodney Dangerfield.
Two blondes were driving to Disneyland. The sign said: Disneyland Left... So they started crying and headed home.
LMAO. Clemson is shitting the bed on the national stage.
Doing what Clemson does...Clemsoning it
2012 Beat Michigan Tail gate: UFM: "Let’s beat the sh*t out of Michigan, have a good night."
FSU looks really, really good. This may be more about how good FSU is rather than how bad Clemson chokes.
After sitting through the Florida BCS fiasco in Glendale surrounded by Gator fans, I empathize with Clemson.
FSU is rolling.
BTW FSU looks really good this year. Like maybe this is the year that they run the table and don't get upset by an unranked team. I hope not.
How about Ole Miss up 10-0 on LSU right now?
FSU isn't just going to win, they are going to squish Clemson like a bug.
Not sold on Clemson; plus they've had a couple close slip ups already. I think FSU is the team to beat in the ACC.
Pokud si můžete přečíst to pak budete mít zlatou hvězdu na den!
The thing that sucks is this game will just expose Clemson for the fraud they have been all year. They got way too much credit for beating an awful Georgia team that has now lost 3 games and they should have lost to NC State if the refs would have had their glasses on and seen that the NC State player did not step out of bounds; BC almost beat them last week. None of this ever gets reflected though. You give a team mad props for beating a team you think is the shit in the early season but when that teams drops 3 or 4 it doesn't change anything. Just like when you beat a team everyone thinks is awful but then wins 8 or 9 games, nobody cares about that either. I'm ranting. Hopefully I make sense.
"Play for Ohio State or get beat by Ohio State. That simple." - Kirk Barton
Georgia was legit before a ton of injuries, don't kid yourself
UGA's defense is worse than ours, and that is without injuries.
I agree with you on that.
No, no they weren't. That's what they keep telling and wanting you to believe.
I wasn't born a Buckeye but I became one as fast as I could.
The NC State call was bad. But Georgia was full strength and was a good team when Clemson played them. It was a good win at the time. Since then Georgia's had lots of injuries at key positions. Few teams would be able to overcome what they've had to deal with.
Where is my violin? To hell with Georgia. And Clemson's win against them was fools' gold.
Perhaps. At the time it was a good win.
They gave up a ton of points. So no, I don't think so.
Using that logic, I guess OSU's win over Northwestern (the highest ranked team OSU has played in 2 years) was fool's gold.
I never said it was a "good" win. NU was another fraud.
So I'm guessing they didn't set a noise level record?
it's only the first half... they won't know until the game is over
Yeah but weren't they trying to get it on FSU first offensive play?
Ole Miss up on LSU now 17-7
The idiot voters will probably put them in the top 25 if they hold on.
Wouldn't you think they deserve to be in the top 25 if they beat LSU?
No. They'd be 4-3. Stop defending other teams.
Well, sorry man. I'm a buckeye fan but I'm a realist too. They win, they're back in the top 25 regardless of the number of losses they have. Its not an aberrant thing to have a three loss team in the top 25 even if they are at the bottom of the polls. Beating an LSU team is a legit win.
I get what you're saying. I try to be a realist too. My point is that a big win shouldn't make up for several losses. Otherwise what's the point of playing every week? I just think SEC teams don't get punished enough for losses. They drop less compared to other teams.
Sorry, but we played our first several games without Braxton, Carlos, Roby, etc, but no one gave us one shred of props when we steamrolled through every game, albeit against sketchy competition. Forgive me if I don't start making excuses because Georgia shit the bed, again. Georgia's 2nd string guys should still be able to beat Vandy, 9 out of 10 times.
We can't stop here; this is bat country...
How long has Clemson used the Jump Around song? I know Wisconsin does it at the end of the 3rd quarter, but if they took this from Wisconsin, and they're using that stupid bus, they're obviously trying way too hard.
This first half is taking forever! Who's defense will get tired in the second?
"So that's what a #1 DT QB is supposed to look like."
-Devin Gardner's thoughts on Jameis Winston
Still seven minutes until halftime, wow. Clemson needs to score.
Tahj Boyd is doing his best Devin Gardner impression tonight.
Distracted by the ad.
"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.
Yeah, Brynn Howell is hot. Yeah, I know her name; I know a lot of useless things.
Thanks for knowing her name. lol
Noles going for the jugular, love it.
Tahj Boyd is shitting on himself. Wow.
LOL FSU got the interception with 10 people on the field.
Clemson D getting tired and it's not even halftime. And guess who gets the ball to start the second half...
hopefully Raekwon is watching this shilacking!
Flipped over to the LSU v. Ole Miss game. LSU just kicked a FG, now down 17-24. Before they got the fortunate punt return muff that set up their FG, the announcers whined about how LSU was losing because they are "decimated" by injuries.
UGA is decimated by injuries, too, apparently. Texas AM was decimated by Johnny Football's throwing shoulder getting dinged.
Excuses, excuses, excuses. Except the excuses only seemed to get rolled out for schools that are affiliated with eSECpn.
The narrative is all about "It's because the SEC is so tough". Teams get credit even when the lose.
Fricken Winston looks damn good.
Agreed! He looks like the best QB in the country.
Yep. Now they're comparing him to Johnny Football
Lol doesn't run like Johnny, is a more effective passer, and actually is grown up. Yep spitting image, lol.
At least now OSU will be ranked behind a team that deserves to be #3
Weren't we considered the favorites at one point to land Lamarcus Joyner?
The SEC had 8 ranked teams after last weekend. How many will be ranked after this weekend?
I say it stays at 8. A close loss against an SEC team is basically a win.
9, They will just shuffle some around is all.
At least 14. This weekend's victories show the bottom half of the conference is just as good as the top.
Chicken-hearted Ole Miss is trying to strike again. Ole Miss and UNC might end up being the only two teams that let top 15 teams off the hook.
Meanwhile...in section 224
Bowl cuts are a serious problem.
so much for the decibel record... lol
Ole Miss got a heart! I'm shocked! Ole Miss up by 3 with 2 secs left!
well, at least we know LSU won't jump us
Yup so glad. Only heard about LSU jumping us 30 times during today's game.
big surprise...another bs targeting penalty
Why did Michigan and Indiana play a basketball game today? I know a bunch of schools had their "Midnight Madness" events during the past week, but it's weird that Michigan and Indy would play after only a few practices.
Was it an exhibition game or did it count in the conference basketball standings?
Also, that p.o.s. Crean must have been furious that his up tempo offense was kept to 47 points, even if his boys were rusty from the offseason.
Winston still carving up the Clemson D...I think the fat lady is warming up...
The fat lady sang about an hour ago and now she's drunk in the bar.
Holly Rowe is at the game?
I hate the "over rated" slogan people throw around, but Clemson continues to look like they are not anywhere near a top five team.
Can't stand that Dabo Sweeney, I'm really enjoying this.
FSU is in my very humble opinion, far & away the best team out there right now. This is a straight up ass whooping of monster proportions.
The world is full of kings & queens who'll blind your eyes & steal your dreams - it's heaven & hell - Ronnie James Dio.
Nick Oleary trucking that Clemson db pretty much sums up this matchup.
Because we couldn't go for three!!!
FSU will jump us but I'm not worried, they will lose to Miami and possibly Florida. I know Florida sucks but we all know how tough that rivalry game is at the end of the season.
FSU is not losing to Miami or UF.
Every team has a bad game. May be improbable but anything can happen.
Ever heard of "wide right?"
Yeah and the Canes sure looked like the number ten team in America a couple of nights ago.
48-7...all I gotta say is HOLY SHIT...yo...sadly I don't think FSU is going to lose a game. Need to pray that Alabama loses their typical home game, Oregon loses their typical game, and Mizzou's mystique runs out.
Class of 2010.
Raekwon, you seeing this? Come to OSU brother.
Herbie making it known only Bama, Oregon and FSU should be considered for the NCG, thanks former QB
I noticed that comment too. "After these top 3 teams there is a steep drop off..."
Ohio State Alum '10
Do you think OSU should be considered right now? I'm not so sure they could hang with either of those 3 right now.
We have won 19 games in a row. Do these other teams at times look better? Yes. Do I think we can beat any of the three teams? Absolutely. Until we lose, I think we can play with anyone in the country in a single game scenario.
I love your optimism, but I have my doubts.
I'll always have faith in the Bucks. I don't care what other teams are doing. I'll defend them to the end.
At this point in time I don't think we'd have a prayer against either Oregon or FSU. Bama, I think we have a shot. Their D would struggle with this offense. The offense, though, would probably move the ball, but it would probably be by the pass, so maybe McCarrin is off his game and we force a couple TO's. Oregon or FSU would just stomp us at this point.
HOWEVER, come January, things could be different.
I caught that. It's frustrating with him for sure...those three teams are great & right now more deserving than anyone else for consideration, but to say nobody behind them is even close is kind of sad. OSU may not be killing all the teams they play & the defense needs work, but they get everyone's best shot & keep winning.
In 2002 OSU was guaranteed to lose to Miami. In 2006 UF was guaranteed to lose to OSU. Until the games are played, all those guarantees don't mean shit.
I can't fault him for giving his opinion. Unfortunately for OSU winning may not be enough.
I don't fault him either, it just frustrates me to hear that he feels like OSU is so far behind. I agree those three teams look better than everyone else including OSU, but I don't think any team is unbeatable & I've seen a hundred teams get beat by teams that "shouldn't" have won.
I guess I'd love to hear him say those 3 teams are great without having to throw in that the teams behind them suck. That would be a way to give an unbiased opinion without at the same time subtlely bashing your alma mater.
BTW, as mentioned above, I do believe right now that FSU is as good as it gets in CFB.
Yeah before the last two weeks. Clemson, Stanford, Ucla, LSU, Georgia, SC, Oklahoma where on that list too. Lets just keep winning and let the rest take care of itself.
I hate that Florida state chant, it is like nails on a chalk board
I would like it, but they must play it about 150 times a game (literally). How the FSU fans don't get sick of it is beyond me.
Anyone watching Oregon? Washington st just returned a fumble. Oregon is only up 27-21
I could only hope
J. Winston is still on the game this late in the 4th Q... Style points??? Hmmmm
Jameis Football Too
Next Time we're down about OSU just read the comments on this Clemson message board, it is an absolute dumpster fire. Some of the comments are pure gold.
Of what will be the top 3 teams when the rankings come out, Florida State is by far the scariest to me
Clemson let FSU fans storm their home field! Pathetic.
How can you let a rival team just come in there and destroy you like that? Clemson is overrated and it finally showed.
“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-
that wasnt a football game..that was a nationally televised rape going on..i dont think clemson will ever come back from that demorlizing loss for AWHILE.
there is no greater joy than watching Michigan get slammed. in anything
