Fields has 6 TDs and doesn’t win this. I’m totally fine with holding him to a higher standard, but thought it was interesting. Maybe the fumble cost him.
That number is their defensive rating, not points per game allowed.
Nothing. If you read his stuff or listened to PAPN he’s made it clear this is NOT a resume ranking and is only predictive. So what Texas does from here on out won’t affect LSU.
There isn’t any bias in this poll. It’s literslly all data driven.
Im guessing it has ISU above Iowa because Iowa only won due to two lost fumbles from the Cyclones.
Not sure how our SOS would be better than Clemson’s (so far- we’ll obviously pass them there by the end of the yesr). TAMU is better than anyone we’ve played, regardless of their current record.
Also, for those into the advanced stats, Buckeyes move up to 2 on Bill Connelly’s SP+ ratings.
I didn’t expect to move up, but I’ll take it.
If you go by “who has the best win of the season”, I think it’s either UGA or LSU. So it’s not really that crazy.
Kind of a moot point since a win vs Texas would put them over us anyway. We don’t have any games coming up soon that would shoot us up over anyone.
This is why you can’t really judge a teams schedule over the summer. Our fans were besides themselves about the dreaded back to back of Penn State and Michigan, while basically no one was worried about Wisconsin.
I was more nervous for this game a few weeks ago. But now I can’t help but think if the Illini can put up 38 points, Day and Fields should be able to find a way to score.
Just turned the game on after walking the dog. Have to admit I thought UGA was going to be up two scores by now.
You...want the officials to have the power to just arbitrarily end games?
It wasn’t up to them. If there’s a registered lightning strike within 10 (?) miles they have to suspend play for twenty minutes.
That was just a total ass kicking. Time to get ready for our first real test.
1) bench McCall at PR. I’ve never seen that kind of run from him.
2) Wilson should be getting more snaps at WR than everyone but Hill and Olave.
I can’t find a box score, but we beat Oberlin 128-0 in 1916, so it probably happened in there.
You undersold it. It was six touchdowns in A QUARTER.
Go read the MGoBlog recap. The fanbase has turned on him.
First quarter was bad.
Second quarter is good.
That is all.
Do kids today even care about Emmit Smith though? He set the record when current recruits weren’t even born.
I just happened to look at 247 and noticed that we somehow jumped LSU for third in the rankings. Not sure if there were updated scores or they had a decommit but I’ll take it.
Lol he oversaw the hiring (and eventual flameout) of Petrino. He was run out of town. Hard pass.
Dallas signed Hardy after his conviction for beating the hell out of his girlfriend. The fact that they later cut him was unrelated to that:
Robert Klemko of Sports Illustrated revealed that in Hardy's tenure with the Cowboys, he "slept through meetings and practiced in a fog." There were several sideline blowups that were caught on game broadcasts.
