They lost a spot for two reasons -- 1) VT lost 2) It seems fashionable for the voters to punish the Bucks for giant shutout wins against overmatched opponents, even though the same voters 'ooh' and 'aah' over Oregon or an SEC team doing it.

Comment 14 Sep 2014

I think the world is just waiting to see what the punishment will be.

I know I had a switch taken to me a few times, as did most of my friends, and all the teachers of my day proudly displayed their "boards of education" . . . but my goodness, this was a four-year old.

Ugh, 1 for 4 today . . .

Nuge will get a shot at redemption here.

Comment 12 Sep 2014

It's only weird if it doesn't work . . . and it's been weird out there.

Comment 12 Sep 2014

Butch Jones and Tuberville were/are both decent recruiters and got some pretty good talent for the Bearcats, regardless of star level.  The Bearcats will give the Buckeyes a good game, and I'm surrounded by Bearcat fans.  I usually root for them, but never when they play the Buckeyes.

Don't even

Comment 07 Sep 2014

Along with everything else I saw last night, it certainly did appear that VT just wanted this game more and were willing to stretch that extra inch or keep the block alive that extra half second to achieve the goal.  The coaches and the players themselves have to fix that disparity quickly.

Comment 07 Sep 2014

Seems like to me that the defensive deficiencies of last year are still there -- maybe there has been some slight improvement, but maybe not.  And the offensive line is definitely not playing like a unit right now.  They have enough talent and coaching on this team to fix most of the problems, and then to run roughshod through the remaining schedule.  I'm really glad for the two early bye weeks now -- I think the coaching staff will put them to good use.  But this is not the national title contending team I thought it was.

Regardless, I'll be cheering every Saturday.  Go Bucks!

Maybe they should let Ross Fulton call the plays on this defense, or at least the coaches should maybe read his articles.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results . . . and constantly seeing opposing receivers with huge cushions is driving me insane.

Comment 06 Sep 2014

Whatever the original poster meant . . . where in the heck is the coverage?  I recognize some prevent defense there -- but why do they leave about a 5-yard cushion for each and every receiver?  At least the TEs and the FBs.  I think most high schools could move the ball against that kind of coverage.

Great, great catch and run by Abdullah.  Could have tackled him short of the first down, but it's a touchdown.

Comment 06 Sep 2014

They did mention McNeese is ranked #6 in FCS . . . 63 seconds until OT unless Nebraska can score.

Comment 06 Sep 2014

Oh my goodness -- 41 yard Nebrasky pass play overturned by a lineman downfield.

Comment 06 Sep 2014

Gotta be some discontent in Nebraska . . . . and hopefully somebody puts Purdue out of their misery.

Comment 01 Sep 2014

That was actually a whale of a debut for a freshman QB in week one.  And if you look around the country, there have been a lot of great seasons with freshmen at the helm recently.

And Tatum O'Neal has used up all her eligibility so she can't sling the ball for him. It's just bad being Bert.
