Kid has an NFL future. I know in the NFL RB's aren't a huge value anymore, but between Hyde last year, and now Gordon, Coleman, and Abdullah... looks like the B1G has some talent at the position.

What I was thinking. Screw those people.

I agree with Desmond though. He said they should be penalized for these games late in the season. It's one thing to schedule them early as a tune up, but to play these games in November is ridiculous, and is a slap in the face to fans. Alabama v.s Western Carolina is homecoming??  pathetic. Imagine the outrage if we played Florida A&M or a MAC school for homecoming.

I would love to see each SEC team that plays an FCS foe this week drop a spot. I think it would send a strong message.

1995- I was in the middle of a custody battle. My mom always had custody but I always wanted to live with my dad. For whatever reason my mom always tried to keep my away from my dad. In 95 my mom moved me to Tennessee (where she was originally from) I didn't like it there, caught a bunch of crap in Jr High over being a yankee etc. I was always a football fan as a kid, but all I seem to remember was watching the big time matchups in the early 90's. I remember watching The choke at the Doak, I remember watching Notre Dame-FSU in 93... I loved the sport but had no clear cut favorite. I remember the Thanksgiving dinner in 1995. We played Michigan and some guy with a name I could not pronounce was running nuts all over Ohio State. I remember some of my family members just sitting there shocked at what was happening. With the struggles I faced being between families often, I wanted to belong somewhere. I felt a connection between the suffering of that game and how my family felt, and it related to how I felt about my situation with my parents. I decided from that day on I would be a loyal Ohio State fan. The toughest part was going on to lose our bowl game to Tennessee, but it certainly validated my decision.

I think Wisconsin gets the nod. I could see Minnesota somehow upsetting Wisconsin, but its doubtful.

I know money doesn't fix everything, but at some point the bottom half of the conference need to make a more emphatic effort to improve.

Comment 19 Nov 2014

I wonder how many threads there would have been on Eddie George after his early struggles? I hope Marshall goes ape shit and scores 3-4 td's this week on like 5 touches.

NCAA Football 2006 on ps2

Madden 07 ps2

Pretty much any NCAA football game between 04-09 on ps2, I never got into the 360 games. The graphics are great, but the gameplay is sketchy. The players move and lean into cuts better in the old school games. I bought a few NCAA games on the 360, and just could not stand the gameplay, not to mention all the glitches. I still play ps2 versions of NCAA. Lots of fun, especially head to head with an updated roster.

I really hope Alabama loses to Auburn, Mississippi State beats Ole Miss and toes to Atlanta and loses to Mizzou. That would be great. I'm not sure who would get the nod from the SEC to get in the playoff, but it would be odd if there were Oregon, Ohio State, Florida State, and either Baylor or TCU all sitting there with a loss. Well FSU would be unbeaten.

I like where we are at, only 2 spots from being in with 3 weeks to go... I like our chances to get in.

Comment 18 Nov 2014

I agree, that is a slap in the face. I don't agree with it at all, and after TCU's last game I thought the committee would have used the "eye test" to decide that TCU looked like shit against a 3-6 team with an interim HC and drop them a spot or maybe two. Baylor should be ranked ahead of TCU. Baylor lost on the road to a respectable West Virginia team that hung within 10 of Alabama. Head to head should matter.

recruiting Dallas would be a nice backyard to have as well. I think it's an ideal choice for him IMO. Not a ton of pressure outside of Eric Dickerson. It will take him a few years to make the transition with current players. Gotta recruit some running backs though, I think at SMU they just recruit a 200lb receiver to play RB.

I would also love to see Oregon OC and former Huskers QB Scott Frost get the Nebraska job eventually. I think Pelini needs to stick to coaching defense.

My guess for the Florida job is either Jim McElwain or Chad Morris. I don't think Richrod will leave Arizona until he wins a conference title there. In interviews he seems like he genuinely likes Tucson and is happy there.

Comment 17 Nov 2014

IMO Jim McElwain is probably the best candidate out there. I wouldn't be surprised if Michigan didn't go after him if they can't get a Harbaugh or Miles. He runs the type of system that the Wolverines would want. He seems to be able to develop talent at CSU where they were pretty shaky when he arrived.

Kiffin to Florida would probably be the most hilarious thing to happen. Imagine Tennessee fans. Oh man. No way Florida is that stupid. Kiffin needs to be at a smaller school to prove he's worth a shit as a HC.

Comment 16 Nov 2014

Texas played well this week. If TCU shows up flat like they did against Kansas look out. Catalon being out is hurting TCU right now. Not sure if he is back this week.

Comment 16 Nov 2014

I dozed off during the 3rd quarter.... woke up on the couch to see Oregon State fans all over the field!  Awesome feeling. Well done Coach Riley.
