Have to feel bad for him a little. Any other year and he'd be the star back of the league, but with Gordon and Abdullah choosing the same year to go crazy he's still in a shadow. Just to put it in perspective for our fans - he's got more yards in 10 games than Hyde had in his 11 last year. If he wasn't playing us this week I'd like his chances to get to 2000.
Glad that Bennett is being the leader we wanted him to be on defense.
Feels like 100% if it's Third-and-two or less
I think the top-to-bottom thing is a little overrated. If we want to change perceptions we need us, MSU, Wisc and Neb to win bowl games this year. Whether or not PSU wins the Little Caesars Hot'n Ready Bowl is irrelevant.
He does, but we also need more teams to lose. Fair or not, he won't get near the same amount of love if we don't get to the playoffs.
Basically every casino has a sports book that will have 100 TVs you can watch (even if you dont want to bet on it). I personally like the Stadium at the Venetian, but you can't really go wrong.
HE'S A HURTIN' BUCKAROO OUT THERE.
Maybe it's just me, but I'll always flip to a snowy game if I see its on. That's real football.
You know whats absurd? Even if you did discard everything after halftime he'd still finish with 238 yards.
Quiet down you. We should be thankful they haven't already named it something terrible (see: literally every other award).
He had zero chance of getting OPOW, but this is good anyway. Thanks for posting the other winners too, usually I look them up and put them in the comments.
More than a little. He was likely the first RB taken in the draft, now he's likely to miss next season. Considering Marcus Lattimore was basically the same situation and he fell to the fourth round, Gurley lost a TON of money this weekend.
I want him to stay, but I don't think he needs any more resume help. People are aware that the offenses the past two years (and an undefeated team before that) were pretty off the charts, which looks good on him.
He has all the Texas-area recruiting connections, so the question is what P5 jobs near there would he be enticed to? Kansas maybe?
Nah, two touchdowns with 2pt conversions plus a safety caused by a questionable holding call in the endzone.
If FSU-UM isn't close, primetime sucks. Wonder why CBS didn't put Bama-MSU on later?
Agreed. Saban is clearly the sport's top dog but any conceivable metric, but Urban has solidified himself firmly at the 2 spot. The bigger debate is really who's in third - Jimbo? Stoops? Kelly? Dantonio?
I actually laughed more at whoever asked that question. "Any chance you're looking ahead to Indiana?"
Meh, maybe but I wouldn't count on it. ASU lost by 35 earlier this year, and they're comfortable ahead of us.
I don't think the league reputation is really driven by Northwestern or Penn State at this point. We need us, Sparty and Nebraska to not shit the bed the rest of the year, then win some bowl games.
I think most people are rooting for Miss St, but realistically Bama is going to pound them. 1-loss MSU falls to 4 or 5 and we still need them to lose the Egg Bowl. Our best hope for some good news Saturday lies with Miami taking down FSU.
She's doing PennState-Temple. Bookmark this site for future reference (also good for NFL games): http://eyeonskyandairsports.blogspot.com/
They always talk up the seniors to some extent. He's got 12 touches all year, so his main impact is probably in the locker room.
I personally think MSU is overrated. Their schedule has consisted of playing teams at the right time - they were highly ranked but have since shown themselves to be not as good as we thought (A&M and LSU, as well as an Auburn team that itself was highly rated due to beating A&M while THEY were highly rated). Bama is going to roll them.
I think that's irrelevant. We don't get to have it both ways - we can't claim that we're a totally different and improved team than we were in week 2, but claim that TCU hasn't changed at all so their week 2 margin-of-victory is clearly a measure of how good they are today.
