McCaffrey or Watson hopefully win. Henry has good numbers, but 'Bama just hands it to him and he's too big to bring down right away. He doesn't have a lot of highlight plays or "moments" like McCaffrey or Watson, or even Elliott. In the past, if they weren't taking Texas Tech or Hawaii qb's too seriously for their 80 pass attempts a game, they shouldn't take Henry seriously when he runs it 40 times a game. Would love to see Henry lose twice this postseason.
Dude you are an idiot. Because 3 or 4 losses are the teams that we are talking about. Go ahead and keep justifying the clusterfuck then every year when multiple 1 or 2 loss teams are all sitting there without real justification on who should be 4.
You're an idiot. Take care of business? Because we don't schedule like SEC and actually had a hard game late in November, we were punished for playing a hard team, unlike Alabama. How about Oklahoma and their loss? Sparty and their loss?
It's Ohio State fans like you that annoy me most. News flash, we aren't going undefeated every year, and neither does the champion always go undefeated. But you "fans" stick to this idiotic view that somehow now that we have the playoffs, and no longer the BCS, the top 4 are totally deserving and heaven forbid we consider expanding to 8 teams. Before you fans would make the argument, that hey, we shouldn't have lost that 1 game so we would have made the BCS, now we say the same about the playoffs.
And to compare the CFP to the NCAA Tourney is ridiculous. Teams that are on the bubble to get in aren't legit threats to win the tournament most years. Even if they put together a good run, we usually get one of the best teams winning it. If we have a "debate" about the 8th best team, then so what. Iowa, Sparty, and tOSU all have 1 loss, and Sparty has the worst. Oklahoma has an equally bad loss, but Stanford has 2 losses but has looked good against a lot of ranked teams. Of course there's overrated Bama. Do you like the rankings? I sure don't. I think the committee is a huge pile of crap that has their own agenda because of their ridiculous rankings they throw out each week.
I'm more pissed than anyone about our 1 loss, but I also don't think it's fair to have teams so unfairly punished for a loss, where other teams don't get hurt in the same way. But go ahead, keep holding on to your conservative view points and inability to use logic to assess college football.
I went to Oregon for my Master's degree and still live in Eugene (unfortunately), and basically they talk about the "Oregon" way here. The assistants stay pretty loyal and many of the assistants coach here for a long time and aren't interested in head coaching jobs like assistants at other schools. That's why they don't have a lot of turnover and why there was no search to replace Kelly because they knew they wanted Helfrich.
People die running marathons. People die playing football. People die hiking in national parks.
Are we going to shut down every thing we do because one person died? Given how many people attend this each year, we've probably had a few hundred thousand people jump in, and this is the 1st person to die? That's better odds than running in a marathon (about 1 in 50,000). There's going to be an inherent risk in any physical activity we do. It's people jumping into water in November, not throwing themselves off a 10-story building where the risk of death is obvious.
It sucks the kid died. It would suck if they cancelled the jump. It would suck more if we stopped doing everything in this society because someone gets hurt or died. Can't stop everyone from doing something stupid or from potentially having a preexisting condition.
Really? We do crazy stuff all the time. Jumping off cliffs, snowboarding, rock climbing, etc. When someone dies, or get hurts, we don't cancel everything we do. Sometimes we take measures to ensure we are safer, or sometimes it's a freak accident that can't be prevented. Using your logic, do you do anything other than lay in bed?
Are you Tim Beck? Your comments fucking suck and are illogical.
This guy has been out here in Eugene a few times. So funny, he must do a college tour. I swear he's a standup comedian, shit he says is so hilarious.
I thought the same thing. Seemed like he stopped or slowed down before the hit like something happened. It looked weird to me.
Here's my top 5:
4. Oklahoma State
Not going to give 'Bama credit for their win over LSU. LSU is 1-dimensional, and Bama proved it. Bama is 1-dimensional, but LSU couldn't stop it. Bama's loss is looking worse each week. SEC as a whole blows this year. Lots of teams with below average qb play. Bama hasn't proven it can handle dynamic offenses, given recent losses. I'll take my top 5, all with capable qb's and good offenses over a 1-dimensional SEC team that has struggled in a number of its wins. And yes tOSU hasn't looked great, except now they do w/ JT in there, so don't hate haters.
Shutup whiney. (@Bauman)
Exactly!! Wait til they play teams that can score, while continuing to stack the box against Henry. They'll lose easily. Same with LSU.
Come on this is funny. No need to be sensitive and downvote.
As a tOSU alum, that now lives in Eugene, I can say the Duck fans definitely put to shame our old alumni. One thing about being at Autzen, everyone all throughout the stadium is standing up and cheering and yelling. My last few years in C-bus were spent scalping tickets all over the stadium. When I couldn't get into the student section, I would be sitting with all types of alumni. The number of arguments I would get into simply for cheering and rooting on the team was ridiculous. We have way more cheers and traditions than the Ducks do at their games, but they seem to enjoy being at the game more as a fan and supporting their team, and everyone stands up and goes nuts during the game; my dad and I had a blast at the game against Eastern Washington, a low opponent, but the fans were engaged the whole game (our student section is 50x better than the Ducks though, their student fans suck).
It would be nice if tOSU fans stopped using the game as social hour and a way to be seen at the game, which is how it feels these days. When I watch tOSU on tv, it never sounds as loud as many other stadiums, which is ridiculous because of how many people the stadium holds. It's disappointing to see us waste all the tradition and atmosphere we create by pandering to a bunch of old fucks.
Maybe he was annoyed with the idiot tOSU fan and the PSU fans talking about politics and the tOSU fan bitching about him. Seriously, maybe they should hold hands.
Well it would exist because the place kicker is on the ground when they catch it. So under normal rules, he would already be down and the play is over so you could never attempt a field goal then, unless they had the holders not put their knee on the ground. They would have to change the way holders hold the ball moving forward if they wanted to make it down by knee contact because they already have their knee on the ground for the hold.
This was hilarious, from MGOBLOG:
Venting: I need this
Sometimes venting is needed. This is one of those times. In honor of the previously-created thread called "F***", I hereby create this venting thread.
This thread is needed. It is much better than any "snowflake" thread, and honestly what better word can summarize my feelings at this moment other than "f***".
Thus, we commence:
f*** the refs
f*** old man sparty in row 1 at the big house
f*** connor what's his face
f*** brahs walking around like they did something
f*** losing in a way that i'll have to see for the next 10-20 years
f*** this thread
f*** targeting calls
f*** replays that seemingly can't ever be done correctly
f*** having to wait ONE ENTIRE YEAR and then still who knows what will happen
f*** the espn stream which actually hung at that point in the game, forcing me to hear about it from the damn web
f*** long lists like this that nobody wants to read
f*** the guy who flipped off the camera; bad karma
f*** the fools who paint things like statues
f*** late games that take too long
f*** vines and twitters and youtubes replays of the ending
f*** anyone who gives a hard time to a punter who is probably dying a bit inside right now
f*** 404 and 505 and other web page errors
f*** deleting awesome venting threads like this one will likely be
f*** sh** damn
f*** trying to watching anything else related to football for the next three weeks or years
f*** bad luck
f*** special teams being the way we die
f*** not tackling some dude at the 1 as time runs out because that would have been damn precious
f*** not staying with me I'm going to turn this thing around
f*** letting this one damn play ruin a great season
f*** the next team we play
f*** getting down on these kids who just played their hearts out
f*** it, we're going to come back from this
f*** it, we're going to start rolling teams for real
f*** it, we're going into the Ohio game without losing another
f*** it, we're going to WIN THE DAMN GAME
f*** it, I love football
f*** it, does anyone have it better than us, even after that piece of s*** ending?
f*** it, would you really want to have any other coach or any other team
f*** it, don't be depressed - enjoy your family, and friends, and don't ruin this night because of one damn play
f*** is just a word, a feeling, a state of mind; stick with this team, and remember that it's just a game played for entertainment purposes.
One more thing, if you've read this far. There is a red pill: forget this game ever happened, or that you were a fan who could have your heart torn out. There is a blue pill: where you remember, and suffer, but (with time) overcome.
I choose blue everytime, motherf***er.
Our rushing attack this quarter has looked its best all year and looks more like how we finished last year. Hopefully we keep it up and it's a sign of things to cum.
If necessary, would someone be down to get a program from the game? I can Venmo you the money. I'm asking a friend that is going to try and get me one but waiting to hear back from him.
That whole play was ridic.
