Upon hearing Curtis Samuel's 4.31 40 time, Tim Beck nodded to himself and thought, "yes, those countless swing passes behind the line of scrimmage were certainly the best way to use Curtis Samuel."
Another bad loss for a flawed team, but the refs should call fouls when the other team is trying to foul like the "jump ball" call.
Kam was fouled on our last inbound -- 23 grabbed his arm. And then they call an extremely weak call to give Nebraska the and-1...
This wouldn't have been so painful to watch if I didn't hate the Patriots, but refusing to run the ball in situations like these is such bad football. It's like offensive coordinators get bored with big leads and need to put their stamp on the game with a ton of passing yards or a long touchdown pass to "seal" the game.
Hurd is a beast, would be a huge addition if it works out.
Watching it live, I was worried Williams or Loving knocked the Nebraska defender down and they were going to call an offensive foul, but it was just a great cut and a great play. Go Bucks, .500 in the Big Ten here we come!
Two touchdowns on pick plays for Clemson. I could only root for the meteor in this game, but that's a pretty lame way to win.
This arrogance/laziness/whatever has driven me crazy for the last few years. Having confidence in your players is great, but purposely not disguising plays, formations, etc. is senseless. I think this attitude has also contributed to the excessive QB runs and the ball not being given to Hyde, Elliott, and Weber as much. Coaches have to be willing to adjust and use scheme to their advantage.
McMillan lived up to the massive expectations coming in as such a heralded recruit, and he sounds like a great teammate and leader. Definitely going to miss him next season, and I hope he has a great NFL career.
Dabo Swinney looks like a weasel.
I'm excited that we have a pass defense, unlike the last time we played Clemson.
Yayyyyyy! Kill Clemson.
Yep, this is what the college football playoff has become...
2. Ohio State
Non-conference games matter. Conference championships are not everything. Don't lose to Pitt.
Hopefully that prevents us from having to watch Vilma on any sort of regular basis going forward. Rants are fine if they make some sort of sense but that was so weak...
Hahahahaha Jonathan Vilma just said that Penn State should be in the playoff over Ohio State, still so salty from that title game...
I don't think a close, high-scoring win will convince the committee of anything, but who knows? The playoffs have only existed for two years, so while rewarding conferencing champions has been the precedent, we don't know what the committee really values. I think we're still in even if PSU wins.
Peppers seemed to love taunting the crowd (who can't control anything in the game) after his gift interception (apparently the only way he can intercept a pass), so it's not surprising that he can't accept losing (which he could actually control). I can't wait to hear about what a "passionate competitor" he is and how his intensity just got the best of him in that moment.
Harbaugh did a lot to put his team in position to lose (e.g. throwing deep on the first play out of their own endzone, committing an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty, continuing to run Peppers), but he's a Michigan man so of course he blames the refs.
I wonder if he's "bitterly disappointed" with himself for that tantrum.
Today shows the benefit of having a superior coach -- your team can still win even when they play poorly in two phases of the game (and winning coach-penalty yards battle doesn't hurt either). Good job Coach Meyer, and I love that he reacted how most Buckeye fans did too!
I love seeing traitors from northeast Ohio get what they deserve. Bye Kalis, hope you're happy with your decision!
