The game is in AA
OK this is bizarre - I had a similar nightmare, but it was a combed Penn St and MSU that was playing us. I woke up before the end, but we were trailing either 7-0 or 17-0, I can't remember which. I will just assume we came back after I woke up to wallop the Nittany Spartys.
Is that Herbie tweet legit? If so, that is pretty embarrassing for him. I guess he's just another enraged fan yelling at a player from his couch. Given his profession you would think he'd show a little more restraint.
I think the LSU administration just wanted to avoid the circus that went on there last year and decided to fire him now before LSU starts to win more games. After the dust has settled, he will probably be relieved not to be stuck in that place with all those unrealistic expectations by the fanbase of a historically very mediocre program.
It will be interesting to see where he ends up next year. There will be, as always, a ton of openings come December.
This weekend, even thought it was just the first (and not even a full week) of conference play, has completely cleared up the picture in the B1G West. Wisky and Nebraska are WAY ahead of everyone else. Wisky is probably the better team of the 2, but their fate will pretty much be decided before they even face another West team. I am not sure where the Wis-Neb game is this year but that should a great game to watch. Either way, it looks like OSU will be facing a rematch int eh B1GCG assuming the Buckeyes take care of business on their end.
lol based on what? MSU's 12 point win over a bad FCS team and a near collapse against a very bad ND team? Sure that's better than wining in Norman by 3 scores and taking a knee at the end.
Just looked through all the uniforms on the link. Lots of Zubaz for the Tiger teams. And if Nebraska came out looking like 11 Lil' Reds I would fall of my couch laughing. Actually this would probably be a good move for them. Keep their opponent in stitches all game.
LOL there isn't a chance in hell that Kent St wins. Will they keep it closer than expected? well maybe, considering the spot is 43 points. On second thought, no. Bama wins 49-3.
I like the Brutus alternate uniform. Looks better than what Oregon is wearing - but then again almost anything anyone wears looks better than the Ducks.
How in the hell did we all miss the mouthguard???!!!
That. Is. Awesome!
It seems very odd that PSU @ ttun is on ABC at 3:30 while 2 legit teams are playing on BTN at noon. Should be the reverse.
That does seem odd. Generally we have 3 of those, and almost always the last regular season game. I wonder if there are still a few where CBS has the option to pick the game up depending on how both teams are doing?
Looking forward to this season! I am going to the season opener at Navy and to the UCLA game in Vegas. I decided to stop buying season tickets, though because OSU's money grabbing tactics piss me off, but I really do think this is going to be a fun team to watch. I hope to be surrounded by Buckeye fans for that Navy game, which is the night before the football game at Maryland. Should be a fun trip!
NO! And no more Jim Calhoun either, I can't understand a word that man says. When they paired that with the idiotic "under the basket" view I wanted to punch my TV.
True, but do we even know where the ball ended up on this one? I just now rewatched the play again and the camera cuts away before the ball comes to rest. It definitely bounced into the end zone, but I am not clear if it stayed there, or bounced out. Also, if they referee signaled TD and blew his whistle it really doesn't matter what happened, just like we saw with Cal a few hours later.
And this happened 3 times in nationally televised games on Saturday. Unbelievable.
I just can't figure out why CFB is having a rash of these "drop the ball before the end zone" issues. It is the dumbest thing you can do. And there are plenty of dumb things you can do in a football game, dumb penalties, dumb passes, not securing the ball, but most of those are the product of something else, like forcing a pass when you are trying to come back or 2 guys mishandling the handoff etc. There is literally no explainable reason for dropping the damn ball short of the goal line when you are in the clear. It just makes no sense. I mean it is so dumb that, even though we would have been the beneficiary of one of these, it STILL makes me mad that he did it.
I was at that game and one of the few who stayed all the way to the end. It really was like watching OSU play a high school team. And to folks who leave games early, you miss all kinds of things like getting to see young players have breakout plays - like Wiley's 3 TDs the previous week or Boston's punt return TD with 8 guys on the field.
It's funny, after reading that snipet from Titus, I realized that I, too, no longer get nervous for games like I used to. This past Saturday I just went about my business all day knowing the game was coming on that evening. There was no worrying about it, no getting nervous if the team would be ready, etc. None of that. I think the only game I really was even a little nervous about was the NCG game, more because of the stakes of the game, I was confident OSU would win, but any time I watch a title game - even when OSU isn't it in, there are some butterflies in the stomach, or some anticipation just due to the nature of the game. But yeah, I am no longer nervous before any game anymore either.
I suspect that steep angle on the roof is by design due to the weather in Minneapolis. I spent a week up there one winter and it was like a different planet. So. Much. Snow. I saw people with snowplows on top of buildings and mountains of the stuff in parking lots. And this was in mid-December before winter "really gets going" up there. I would die if I had to live in that.
Considering this is the first time he has spoken to the media after the incident - with the exception of the post-game press conference, this isn't surprising at all. I think people tend to forget that coaches do not issues statements to the media every day, it's the part of their job they hate the most and only show up to press conferences because they are required to do so. He used the proper forum to deliver this message.
Now, let's go Sooners! I would love to see them go 9-0 and lay complete and total waste to the entire B12.
I like Gus too, and he did toss a couple of THEs on Saturday night, and at least once only said "THE". And to think Gus is a graduate and fan of TTUN, and still is able to enjoy calling games like this.
I still cannot believe they overturned Lattimore's INT. That ball never touched the ground and there was certainly not any "indisputable video evidence" to support a reversal. If anything it confirmed that the ball never touched the ground and he used his body to control it But what was sweet poetic justice was how the D got pissed and ended up gaining 40 yards of field possession by stomping the Sooner offense into the dirt on the next 2 plays.
I'm surprised Alabama kept that many first place votes. Both OSU and Louisville looked significantly better than the tide did yesterday. But in the end these things don't really matter and especially don't matter in September. Just keep winning and everything works out.
It's been longer than that. The BCS kicked them out of the formula quite a few years earlier and replaced them with the Harris poll which was made up of former coaches. The AP hasn't been relevant in selecting the NC in a decade or longer.
