How does Oregon still fool people into getting 1st place votes?
Why do people pretend Melissa McCarthy is funny?
Remember, they played 14 games. Those broken records were on totals, not averages.
That's a game Wisconsin has to win, and they didn't. Maybe the worst game from a QB I saw all weekend.
LSU is supposed to be down this year, given all they've lost to the NFL the past two years, and they still come up with the win.
Thanks a lot Wisky. I like their coach, but they still found a way for me to hate them.
One thing is for certain, nothing can raise the level a team more than excellent QB play. If we do get Gibson and current commits stay, this team is absolutely loaded at QB for a long time to come.
They trailed at the half and it was still close toward the middle of the 4th quarter.
Also, bookies don't set the spread based on the teams, they set it based on how fans bet. The line is irrelevant.
As an Akron alum, what I remember is our joke of a coach - Rob Ianello - chewing out Fickell after the game for running up the score, and FIckell looking appropriately baffled.
The next two weeks Akron lost to Temple and Cincy, 41-3 and 59-14. I was wondering if Ianello would have to chew out every coach on the schedule.
Most of the coaching staff were the people fired from ND after Weis went down in flames. Yeah, hiring them was genius.
I thought he looked great for his first game. Next week will tell us a lot more, but at no point did I think he was the reason for the close score.
So there was one bad call?
Alabama's offense not looking that great. Kind of surprising, given the steady leadership of Lane Kiffin.
If it makes you feel better, ND fans are also unbearable in the other 49 states.
Agree. People are going to root for Michigan because of media perception?
Give me a break. Besides, the media knows what we've known all our lives. Michigan sucks.
No offense to Navy, but if we don't pummel them something is wrong.
Last year Navy wasn't able to beat Western Kentucky, Toledo, or - get this - Notre Dame. I'm serious. Look that one up if you don't believe me.
I get we're breaking in a few fresh faces, but we should also be able to wear them down.
F*ck omens. We have Bosa.
Another reason ESPN sucks:
I'm not sure if more sports channels will help things. The sheer volume of specialized sports channels is getting out of hand.
I'll be at the bar.
Teo rode that to almost winning the Heisman despite actually not being that great. The USC story didn't even make it 24 hours.
When it comes to pretending you're good despite actually sucking, no one can top Notre Dame.
If Sam did a kiss move every time he made a big play, then it would be fair to taunt him for it.
Since that's not what happened, this is just another example of someone trying to cause a controversy that doesn't exist.
When Urban first got the job, he called out Ryan Shazier for not playing well enough the previous year in the Michigan game. The game where he played with one leg.
Last year Braxton was throwing deep in the Orange Bowl even with a busted shoulder and ribs.
I'm skeptical that he's suddenly going to take things slow with star players.
I think people want Rod Smith to be great, but the evidence just hasn't shown it. Hopefully he can put it together, but even Dunn has shown more, and freshman speed isn't going to stay on the sideline.
Take it slow with the guy who got more carries than Smith last year?
Being a deep threat isn't so bad. Let's hope JT has a nice deep ball. It seems an underrated skill. Krenzel for example was great at it.
For the first time in a few years though, we have a lot of receivers to be excited about. Hopefully defenses won't be able to just key on a few guys.
No, they didn't get better when Braxton got hurt, but they could still be better than anyone they play. Tennessee won a championship when Tee Martin took over for Peyton Manning, and it wasn't because they upgraded at QB.
Then again, I'm old and can remember when the SEC had dominant defenses. For all you whippernsappers out there, it was a thing for a while.
You can't stand ESPN, but that's the only thing you watch?
Change the channel. Read a book. Go outside. Play a video game. Brush up on that grammar. Enjoy life instead of torturing yourself.
Barrettish will be a future poll option.
You're stating that a bit harshly, but I agree with the sentiment.
It's wild speculation to suggest keeping him in there made his shoulder worse, but it was the wrong call to have him throwing down field at the end. Why they kept going away from Hyde in the fourth quarter at crucial times is the greatest mystery of the 2013 season.
For all we know, JT could develop into a better QB than Braxton.
This sucks, no two ways about that, but the cupboard is far from bare. I still wouldn't trade rosters with any other team in the B1G.
Also, any stud QB we face has to deal with the best D Line in the game. All is not lost.
