That was powerful. They also brought a make-a-wish patient in to do the celebrity picks this week. Good stuff. I always watch if i am home. But i like all college football.

I watch CGD.  Maybe not all 3 hours if it.

My old stomping grounds.  TCU is a gorgeous campus; also probably the best looking girls of any other college university.

I remember a class, were about 25 of us.  We’re like 3 of us guys.  Unbelievable. [no, it wasn’t a fashion merchandise degree class, was Speech I think, but girls far outnumbered guys like 2 or 3 to 1.  This class was a bit stacked, pardon me]

CGD was in Fort Worth last year——we beat West Virginia.

This will be a good test for both teams w/ the Bucks winning.

I should hope Alabama has more Gamedays having won 5 of the last 9 Nattys. That alone should have them destroying any other team.

HS
TigerSweat's picture

Except that OSU has the larger fan base and they know that they'll get ratings just because. That's why it's doubly bizarre that they have an obvious anti-osu bias in their reporting over there.

#2 Clemson almost lost to unranked Texas A&M. Can you imagine what ESPN would be saying if that was OSU and Rutgers today?

HS

This is true.

Silver Sniper's picture

That touchback call was BS and ultimately sealed the game.

HS
2morrow's picture

Not to mention that TAM got hosed. The touchback replay call was total bs. In addition, that long completion that set up clemson for a td in the 4th qtr after the freak interception by the back-up TAM qb was blatant offensive pass interference. The clemson receiver threw the db to the ground right in front of the ref - it was impossible to miss - but no flag.

I think the coaches should get two challenges and they can challenge any bad call they want. If the call is not overturned, they lose a challenge and get a 15 yard penalty. If the challenge is upheld, they do not lose a challenge, thus if they challenge 4 calls and all are upheld, they get to keep challenging.

Also, we need a rule that says you get 60 seconds to review a play. Sometimes it is taking 4-5 minutes on a very obvious call. I don't buy the "we have to make sure we get the time and ball placement correct" either. They are superimposed on every screen - it's 2018 for GS.

Not that it mattered in the game, but the late hit called by the refs against the Maryland db on Tate Martel was also bs-Tate was not out of bounds. Plus, so many of the targeting calls are bs, where the tackler is going into make the tackle, the ball carrier is falling to the ground, or moving, changing the location of the head and they get popped, the refs just automatically call targeting and the booth upholds it. The refs are really starting to become more and more a factor in the outcome of games.

HS

Reporting?  Is that was they are calling it?

also,, the Buckeyes have tried to schedule actual good teams for out of conference match ups.

As dominant as Alabama has been, Game Day is not going to bother with Alabama vs Southern Mississippi Tech.

I for one could care less about whether these clowns show up at the game or not. After eSECpn's serial butchery of tOSU during the recent preseason, they are cordially invited to sit on it and spin, When I watch the game, I'll turn off the broadcast sound and turn on Paul Keels' radio broadcast.

Just my $.02 worth.

After all the bullshit that ESPN allowed because one of their former reporters had a boner for OSU - fuck them and the horse they rode in on.

I would do the same but the radio is ahead of the TV as much as a half minute or so (Direct TV). In spite of that, I will still do that to escape some TV announcers.

Very familiar with TCU, attended many games while I was stationed there while in the Corps. Respected their program until Del Conte ran his mouth about OSU and not taking a contract to come to Columbus for one game.  He then proceeded to schedule Clemson for a one and done which was completely hypocritical. You know as well as I do, A.G. Carter isn’t big enough to host the Buckeyes and Del Conte could have realized this without being a giant douche about it. In my eyes the Bucks owe TCU a whooping.  

For the record, Gee’s comments were dumb and most here know that. TCU should have been in the Big 12 years before they were. While I lived there it was awesome seeing the OU fans sulk after losing to a MWC team.

I can't stand the ridiculous shows, including Sportscenter, that they trot out there on a daily basis. I also dislike the fact that, for at least 5 years but probably longer, they've been in the business of "making" the news, not just reporting it. I stopped watching a long time ago because of it. But I'm not gonna cut off my nose to spite my face, so I still watch all sporting events.

You both missed a great Clemson game. 

You both missed watching Texas AM get hosed by two awful calls by the refs.

(A TAM touchback that should have put the ball at the one yard line in the fourth qtr.)

(Blatant offensive pass interference non-call by clemson right in front of the ref which lead to a 4th qtr td - the receiver literally pushed the db to the ground and then caught the ball with the ref standing in the frame looking right at it.)

When you thought there wasn’t an agenda, there was an agenda. There’s always an agenda!

In the poll era (since 1936), OSU is by far the class of the B1G:
National Titles: OSU 8, UM 3
B1G Titles: OSU 33, UM 27
Head-to-head: OSU 42, UM 36
Major Bowls (New Year's Six): OSU 20-14, UM 10-16

ESPN doesn't want to cover Ohio State. Ratings be damned? I don't get it either. That is why they cover manufactured scandals the way they do. If the cover Ohio State, make sure it's a loss. That is my point. And 538 is way over rated.

ESPN is already starting it's propoganda campaign for Clemson to make the playoffs... This is their lead story right now.

"That win could mean the difference for Clemson on Selection Day. A road win against an extremely talented SEC West team will do wonders to separate Clemson from other Power 5 conference champs if Clemson continues to win and gets into a resume battle with another team that doesn't have a nonconference win of that caliber."

One more chance to get the story wrong, see some dipshit signs from ignants, gin up some outrage, hear how the punishment for Urban was too lite....yeah the espinners wouldn’t pass up this chance to immerse themselves in some controversy. 

They might toss a little scarlet meat to the OSU fans about how good Haskins looks, and Bosa should be in New York for the Heisman.....yada, yada....I think I’ll just rearrange my sock drawer Saturday morning.

They're 2-0 in the Cotton Bowl. Ohio State lost once to TCU in 1957 (18-14) 1st game in Columbus. Ruined a perfect season.

HS
Brooksie's picture

Seriously!

Alabama are pussies, plain and simple. Anytime they schedule a "neutral site" game - it must be south of the Mason Dixon line, or preferably in a dome. When was the last time they played a TRUE road game in the north, after Oct. 15th?

I am in my sixties and I cannot ever remember one. If they had a set (doubtful) and they wanted respect - that is the way to gain it. The SEC always schedules an OOC game in week 11 - but it is always at home, and against a way inferior opponent.........

The Buckeyes would make room on their schedule if Bama ever had an attack of conscience and decided to ever step out of their ass kissed comfort zone. Real football teams take on the elements in Minnesota in November.
