Redbox Bowl about to start. I think Oregon is going to smoke MSU.
"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke
Someone should have to pay us to watch Michigan St’s offense.
How about $1 as long as it's back in 24 hours?
I’d want my money back. Lol.
My god MSU, wtf did you do last night that you played like that!? Give Knarcisi his $ back and me my time.
I didn't think so. And I am wrong too, as I didn't see 6-0 heading to the 4th. Although maybe we should have. They were Tressel and Walrused to death.
Looks like MSU had O right where they wanted them with a daunting 6-0 lead... and then they didn't.
Way to "Michigan" Michigan State - for F's sake.
Living the life! Go Buckeyes! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Redbox is still a thing?
Blockbuster bought it. They learned their lesson after passing on Netflix.
Score updates: Va Tech goes back up on UC 31-28 and Stanford's ahead of Pitt, 7-3.
Okay, that Redbox commercial with the guy who has hands for feet was weird...
UC with a huge stop on 4th and 1 from its own 3--blitzed the safety, who stripped the QB and UC recovered.
LJ Scott sighting. Must have got his drivers license back.
Pitt up, 10-7 with TD by Darrin Hall, who now has 80 yards on eight carries.
I know Michigan State isn't super talented on offense but my god they need a new offensive philosophy.
Apparently the whole state of Michigan is synonymous with boring offenses
But the Petoskey-Harbor Springs area is a lot of fun.
I heard Sparty's offense is so bad they had to use 2015's highlight footage.
MSU is taking their offense back 73 years...it was painful to watch and their QB was terrible
When you get the old LJ Scott going, Sparty’s offrnse quickly goes from being horrendous to just being bad!
Kyle Trout sighting with 5-yard illegal procedure penalty.
Well he did learn from the best oline in the country at committing presnap penalties!
I know it's been raining all day, but Cincinnati's QB is struggling to pass accurately in the 4th quarter...he is way off.
That's been his entire career. He's not very good. I'm surprised they are doing as well as they are with their starter going down so early in the game.
It’s their backup. Last their starter in the first quarter
Use the Force, Luke.

Steady rain in Annapolis is effecting the game--UC gunner couldn't stop sliding into the end zone with the ball instead of downing it on Va Tech's 3.
Can someone tell me why Justin Herbert is viewed as a better pro prospect than Haskins? I think he’s good but seems like more of a project guy than Haskins. I’m glad he’s coming back to college because he needs more snaps to polish his skills. He hasn’t developed as rapidly as Haskins has in my opinion but that may be my bias speaking. What say you?
At 6-6/237, he has the frame that NFL teams love. He's also been a starter for three years while Haskins has been one for 13 games.
That's all I've got.
Because Oregon has 300 different uniforms? I'd for sure rather have Haskins.
UC is running out of time has to put something together here. Nice run by Warren.
Stay calm. Keep focused.
Fighting Fickells take the lead!
Virginia Tech's jerseys look like a V-neck sweater I had in college.
Have MSU and Oregon combined for 100 yards of total offense yet?
UC wins 35-31 to go to 11-2. Most wins since 2009. Tagged Va Tech with its first losing season in 26 years.
Glad for Cincy, and esp for Fickell.
Way to go Luke!
Hot take here - but Lewerke is terrible.
"Medicine is not a science" - Leo Spaceman
Lewerke is so bad.
Mathis should've stuck with MSU. Instead, he'll be lucky to play at UGA.
Very true. He'll transfer again. UGA is in lead for 2020 5-star QB too. He was just a body.
UGA is in lead for 2020 5-star QB too.
Nevermind, it was Clemson.

Anyone that thinks Herbert is on psr with Hadkins, is blind.
Way to go coach Fickell!
Congrats to Adam Sandlers twin Brother!
I thought they were triplets.
That last play was the definition of Michigan State football.
Ducks uniforms are
As is the case most of the time.
I wish OSU had the Sparty defense
Stay golden, Ponyboy.
Michigan State's offense is middle school bad
Good job, Fickell and Cincinnati. Nice season for you guys
That's a Buckeye touchdown!
Sparty Oregon is unwatchable.
Okie Light's QB starts the game going 5/6 for 75 yards and a TD. Six minutes in, it's 7-0. Meanwhile, Oregon and MSU have yet to score.
Congrats to the Fighting Fickells for their entertaining win over VaTech. Bearcats may be ready to try and spring an ambush in C-bus next season.
Win the Roses.

Checking out Oki State O-Cord....
This Oregon team scored 30 on Washington...
Mizzou strikes back with a 58-yard bomb to Okie State's 6-yard line.
MSUs offense gives me narcolepsy
I haven't seen anything yet in this game to sway me from my belief that Justin Herbert was this year's draftnik version of Josh Allen.
The most "loud mouth, disrespect" poster on 11W.
Mizzou's RT got trucked.
Feel bad for Scott.
Damn, the Navy's paying a $40K signing bonus?
40k to use for college when you get out
This MSU - Oregon game is a straight snooze fest..
Those are the team colors.
and let me guess. Sparty will kick a FG and miss or go for it on 4th and not make it..
I will admit to enjoying the culture clash between Oregon, which always looks like it's in an Arena Football game; and Sparty, which would put a crowd of Neanderthals to sleep.
I dunno...those Neanderthals might mistake MSU's offense for a herd of woolly mammoths and attack it.
Not impressed with Herbert.
MSU defense is damn good. They deserve better with that offense.
Feel like this is a classic Big 10 v Pac 12 where the PAC 12 just can't match up with the physicality of the Big 10.
Agree.... as a Chargers fan and knowing they'll be looking for a QB1 here soon wouldn't touch Herbert with a ten foot pole... don't get the hype at all... just about everyone starts with "he has ideal size"..... hard pass...
I don't care who you are playing. The #1 QB should put up more than 90 yards of total O.
Brady Quinn with the line of bowl season... " If I'm MSU I would have kicked the FG on 4th... 3-0 might win this thing"
Is it possible to have a first half that is any more Sparty than this?
They still have to miss the FG... :) or punt from the 38... yikes.. so bad..
Thankfully, they will finish the first half without spoiling it with silly points - pure Spartyfection!
MSU-Oregon is like watching paint dry. Is it possible that they have simultaneously the best defense and the worst offense in the B1G? Gotta think so, especially given how overrated UM's appears to have been.
They scored 14 points against Rutgers..... I think Ttat qualifies for worst offense in the country.
And needed 56:04 to put Rutgers away.
I really feel like OSU is going to have a lot of success tomorrow running the football on Washington. I just don't see them being able to physically match up
Oregon had 9 yards total in the first half on offense. They ran up and down the field on Washington. Ducks struggling to handle Sparty.
We'll need to control the LOS and run the ball because UDub will likely attack Alabi, who will have Haskins's blind side and that excites me...not!
Pray it is better than his trip to Iowa
Mizzou grinding. Just scored on the 17th play of the series .
Oregon's coach said Sparty was the best defense they have seen all year....hmm...I feel pretty good about tomorrow.
Except Washington has the best offense our defense will have seen all year.
I have to disagree with that. They scored 10 points on Cal and had no offensive TDs vs Utah. I think OSU has seen several better offenses this season....one being their own offense in practice
I hope you're right.
Lewerke doesn't look like his arm has much zip. Several of his passes have been down at the ankles.
35 minutes into this snoozer we have a FG! Hooray Sparty
AFLAC Trivia: Did you know that MSU TE Matt Dotson's grandfather, Steve Niehaus, was the Seahawks' first-ever draft choice and the #2 overall pick in the 1976 draft? He was the 1976 NFC Defensive Rookie of the Year and still holds the Seahawks rookie record for sacks in a season with 9½. As things come in three's, there's the AFLAC Duck, the Oregon Ducks, and this duck:
What... the duck?
Stanford's placekicker is named Jet Toner. Rumor has it his parents met at Hewlett-Packard.
Wow. Pitt faced 4th and 10 from its own 3, went for it and got the first down.
Herbert is averaging 3.4 yds a pass, yikes
Stanford's up 14-13 with 1:33 to play. Pitt's out of timeouts. Has there ever been a 7-7 CFB team before or is Pitt about to be it?
I swear I can hear Mark May crying...
Just tuning in to this offensive showcase with Sparty and Oregon. Feeling a pick six coming from Lewerke that puts the Ducks ahead...
Oregon scores! Hang on, folks, we're in for a barn burner!
Do Ducks have buttocks?
Thanks to Cincy and Fickell..OSU has a top 20 OOC opponent on schedule next year
MSU QB is about as bad as they come.
You are apparently not familiar with the QB from TTUN.
how about a late drive and windmill guitar fg kicker guy shows up and boots one for the Big Ten win?
What the hell was that, Oregon?
this Sparty team is really awful. what has happened to Dantonio?
They just showed a graphic that Oregon could have all 11 offensive starters coming back. What does MSU have coming back on offense? They'd be better off starting from scratch.
Think Sparty had 20 or 21 starters back THIS year.
Sparty trying to prove that TDs are for suckers.
Theory fails. It’s back to the drawing board for the Walrus.
Here comes Sparty doing what they do
Since they don't do much, what is it exactly that they do?
Trying to win with a FG
Lewerke runs way too much
Lewerke cannot do anything right.
He would rather take a 5 yd loss than to throw it away
Here comes another shank because Dantonio wants to put everything on his kicker
Who looks like he's wearing adult diapers. I haven't see a torso that square since SpongeBob.
My eyes are bleeding with this damn Sparty game. Please make it end.
Michigan State is pretty smart. Saved money by not having an offensive coordinator
Why didn’t Lewerke just throw it up
I think he did.
Good one Iowa
Windmill that, you sorry asses.
Oh, welp. They tried...
Sparty you are just a shit show
Michigan state QB is just awful
Oregon player of the game: Brian Lewerke
Dino is short on talent.
Dantonio was playing for the FG the entire drive. Nutless. Have a spine at least try to score a TD. Predictable runs.
So many teams in the Big Ten are so damn unlikeable. This is why I absolutely can not root for the conference.
You just can't count on any of them.
B1G gonna B1G. I would have bet the mortgage they wouldn't have made that FG. Just finding ways to blow it.
After their stellar showing and gusty win in their bowl game, Oregon will be ranked in the top ten heading into next year. I mean that way Auburn can get a top ten OOC win next year like they did over Washington this year.
Maybe Sparty will get another blocked punt for a TD
Lord jesus. This should be fun
Lewerkie is on the take
The only true worry we should have about this 2019 team is this:
Why is Sevyn Banks wearing number 12?
Lewerkie might be on the same level of Joe Bauserman
Lewerke can't make a pass to save his God damn life.
Is this really the best they have at QB?
We saw the other guy they have...and yes probably. They were basically the only team this year that didn't put up big numbers against us.
Lewerke is John O'Korn bad.
Welcome to Walrusball MSU.
Mercifully, this bloodbath has finally ended. And it was just as I predicted: Oregon smoked Michigan State.
I feel like I’m watching a game too see who gets to claim they are not the worst team. But close.
You deserve this Dantonio. You tried to win this game with field goals all day. Took no chances. Did nothing on offense.
Championship defense and middle school offense.
Oregon celebrating a 7-6 win like it is the Natty. Pathetic.
I have a feeling that Chris Chuganov is a better QB than anyone on their roster.
Dantonio looking like he wants to kill the QB.
What a SHIT team.
Is this a pick-em question? Not sure which team you are referring to
Okie Light is up 35-19 with 2:10 in the 3rd quarter.
I wish Day and OSU would make Dantonio an offer he couldn't refuse to come coordinate the defense. That guy is a defensive savant. It's impressive.
When I die, sprinkle my ashes over the 70's
Yep, he's a regular Rainman. Five minutes to Wapner!
I love the Oregon hype. That team will lose 3 games next season.
All that matters is how high they are ranked when Auburn beats them to open the season.
That was ugly. And this QB for Oregon is a top pick? He had like one good throw that I saw. Must have looked great prior to this game.
Is there anyone in their right mind that would pick that QB over Haskins? (I would normally insert a Browns joke here, but there could be some hope for them yet. They did pick Ward after all.)
My aim, then, is to whip the Weasels, to humble their pride, to follow them to their inmost recesses, and make them fear and dread us. Fear is the beginning of wisdom. - William Tecumseh Sherman (with apologies)
Dantonio should hire Matt Canada immediately! Call him from the locker room.
Doesn't matter. They have middling talent
Can we just annex the state of Michigan and then sell them to Canada?
Announcers suggesting we should be on the lookout next year for this Oregon team that just scored 7 points.
Not concerned about either Michigan schools next season.
I have been flipping back and forth from this Mizzou-Oklahoma State game all afternoon and have yet to see the Cowboys' offense one single play.
They are 400 yards thru 3 QTRS . Corn has 300 passing ...I think MZ has 500 yards
Lewerke fumbled that game away. All day. What a complete douche.
Sparty offensive line is down right offensive................
"Life is not about how hard you can hit, it's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. THATS HOW WINNING IS DONE!!" - Rocky Ballboa
- screams at TV, Ok St QB under pressure: Get rid of it, dummy!
- QB throws pick: Not to the wrong team, dummy!
Not the greatest camera work. Drew Lock should be the second QB taken this year.
Sweet run by Hubbard. I remember that kid as a recruit out of Canada--he was one of fastest U18 sprinters in the world.
Two really bad picks for Okie QB.
Was that targeting?
That's a target
I don't think you can make the argument of moving body, falling down, etc. It was a short distance and helmet-to-helmet
Okie State losing DBs due to targeting.
Big ten refs man.....SMH...those guys call more flags in pass coverage than any other conference.
That was pretty damn blatant targeting... How was that not called on the field?
Mizzou looking like they have this game under control. If I didn't know the score, I would guess they were up by nine, not trailing by nine.
And just like that, Mizzou scores.
Just as long as OSU isn't looking at anyone from the Okie St defensive staff
And to think Delany took Nebraska over Missouri...
Looking like OSU might be the only Big Ten East team that can actually win their bowl game. I don't trust PSU
Don’t yell at the punter. Yell at Gundy...he’s 51
That's another target
Cowboys got away with a lead with the helmet. Why didn't the announcers see that?
Holiday Bowl, hope NU can hang with Utah, not a good start
Good call. He had only thrown for 450 and the RB only had 200 so..
Has there been even one good bowl game this year?
I don’t think OK ST and MZ was real bad.. it had some hard hitting...and Wash St-Iowa St wasn’t bad 28-26..but that’s about it
As good as the B1G looked last year in the bowl they are putrid so far this year with really bad football.
Michigan- blown out. Played like sissies.
Purdue- blown out, embarrassed, players quit. Disgusting effort.
Sparty- worst display of offensive football in 30 yrs of bowl games. And fans here want MORE of those Ohio players that Sparty has.
NW- about to be down 14-0 to a team that scored 3 points against Washington.
Minnesota- at least played hard against a bad team and won.
Wisconsin- beat a Miami team that quit . Wisky was poor this year with awful QB play.
We want some of the defensive players
No thanks. Buckeyes need some LBs the caliber that you saw Alabama and Clemson put out on the field.
The Holiday Bowl really puts the exclamation point on how bad our defense was this year doesn’t it?
“I intend to make Georgia howl.” General William Tecumseh Sherman
My God, the B1G is garbage. NW going to get boat raced against Utah.
We can't stop here; this is bat country...
I thought NW had a shot. I was wrong on epic scale.
They are absolutely awful. Narduzzi should get a flight to Green Bay ASAP.
Patience? Isn't NW a 2nd half team?
After 3rd quarter, it looks like I am wrong again. I will look at it as being consistent at least.
As usual...OSU is going to have to do the heavy lifting for the conference.
For all that is holy NW, quit trying to run up the middle
Between MSU and NW, who has the fattest, slowest QB
B10 is on it's way to a B1G faceplant this bowl season
NW looks lost and like they don't want to be there.
All the negative vibes, man. They're only down by 3 now after the fumble return.
Now leading with a +3 TO margin after the largest man I've ever seen except Fridge scores on a 21 yd pass.... damn.
NW looking good once again - playing well in the 2nd half.
Go get'em Cal Poppy - we are behind you !!
It's not a rivalry .............. it's a wreckoning.
Those guys don’t quit, that’s for sure.
Definitely the right coach - Fitz won't allow his team to lay down.
Happy New Year Knar
Happy New Year, buddy.
Heck of a 3rd quarter for NW so far
NW starting to physical push on Utah. I expect the same tomorrow vs Washington.
Remember...Washington could not score on this Utah defense
I love whatever Pat Fitzgerald said at halftime
Maybe he can give our pre-game speech - San Diego is not that far from Pacedena.
Just a 2 hr drive up the 5.
(Given no traffic.)
I'm sure Fitz already has his tickets and a TV spot in the announcers booth.
(Given no traffic.)
Well a man can dream - there's traffic there 24/7
I can attest to that. Don't have to drive past LAX, but traffic is horrendous in Cali
Yes, obviously the voice of experience.
OMG. Utah would be running away with this if they could just hold onto the damn ball. Wow.
Northwestern remembered to hook up the doll at halftime
Down 17 now up 11
I saw Ryan Day hang 62 on Michigan...His hair was perfect.
Go Buckeyes Beat Michigan
Good grief. A tale of 2 halves. Helluva catch. That's not a push off.
That was a horrible call.
Yes. Weak call. The defender never turned around and grabbed the receiver too... Has the potential to totally change this game.
You guys see the weather for tomorrow? LA under a high wind warning until 4pm pst tomorrow. 25-40 mph with gusts up to 65 overnight into tomorrow.
This is why I hate games outdoors of any significance. Hopefully it avoids the RB.
Weather forecasters getting excited and hyperventilating.
Hopefully it moves out by kick
It's looking good for the Nerds
Pick up your feet, turn your corners square! And DRIVE DRIVE DRIVE!!!
Who poured olive oil all over the damn ball.... goodnight Utes.
Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall. (F. Scott Fitzgerald)

Way to go Northwestern !
Meanwhile Jimbo is putting on an ACC beatdown. I sure hope he and Orgeron can start clocking Bama on the regular since Gus has lost his edge, Florida is trash, and Kirby only shows up in December... Dabo needs to share that PED hookup, but both of them probably have too many bagmen to actually get busted, so I'll root for Jimbo and Orgeron in the meantime.
