He's like that "rebound digger" that MSU always seems to have, especially on the offensive glass. The importance of that role cannot be overstated enough, especially when defenses get better and jumpers get harder to make.
Good point (no pun intended). The push and court vision from the PGs has been very noticeable this year. It's an exciting team to watch.
That's well played, man. Well played.
I agree. While I hate to admit it, but the Buckeyes' collective interest after the first quarter seemed to reflect my own in this one. And the LSU went out and have up 37 or something to Ole Miss, so whatever...It was another W without injuries. Time to bury that accelerator.
"Davon Hamilton recorded the team's only sack."
I believe it's spelled "DaVon", right?
Wreck Clifford early and often, then hit him harder with every carry like you caught him breaking into your car. I expect OSU to be positively pissed coming into this game.
Tuf and five others disagree with you. I’m not one of them. Speed side-to-side will be important against Clifford’s scrambling.
My first thought, other than "Aww, hell, that looks bad.", was a deep realization that OSU is just a freak play away from the same fate. Then, when I saw Justin running so much in the first half, I couldn't believe he would be put in that position against Rutgers, of all teams. Tua was hurt on a rollout, and there's not much a coach should do to prevent his QB from extending a play like that. But designed QB runs into a crowded defensive backfield are another story entirely. Personally, I saw way too many of those in that first half. That risk-reward relationship looked pretty skewed at times.
Logged in to post this. Nice.
Desmond should've removed for violating society's commenting policy.
Stay classy, Des. Your TTUN education is betraying you.
L-C-C-T? Sounds about right. I'll allow it.
You've handled it well for someone caught behind enemy lines. I'm surrounded by PSU fans here in DC. One of the "somewhat" reasonable ones came into my office this morning and said that he counted the Chase news as PSU's second loss in four days. I got a nice laugh out of that. Thankfully, the one TTUN fan in the office got reassigned, so at least I haven't had to deal with his excessive bullshit this season.
TTUN: "Who has it better than us?"
OSU: [Raises hand.]
If I were you, a group text message to your work friends would be the very first order of business today. Maybe something along the lines of, "Fellas, any word on Chase? I haven't looked for updates."
Nice try, but not what I'm saying at all. My point is the #4 spot.
IMO, even this "flawed" Bama team would resoundingly thump Oregon, Minnesota, OU, or Baylor. I don't like it, but I can't see that team struggling against any other except OSU, Clemson, or LSU. And no, I'm not a troll.
^^^^This. Get that #1 after the CCG.
As much as I hate to admit it, I do too. No one's watching Clemson, but they're really, really good and can eat yards and clock. Plus, Trevor seems to have cured his yips. I believe OSU-LSU would be a track meet, and I like the good guys' odds.
Agreed. Personally, I'm coming around to a potential steamrolling of PSU. They got behind BIG and had to play catch-up. If they get behind like that against OSU, you can bet that Day downshifts and plants his right foot to the floor. In other news, Minnesota is pretty good, especially throwing the ball. They're fun to watch.
This will probably be unpopular, but I'd put Alabama at #4 based on a a simple question: Who would be favored on a neutral site: Bama or Oregon? Bama or Georgia? Bama or Baylor? Bama or OU? The answer to all of those is probably Bama. This isn't the same Bama team of years past, but it is still really good. However, if Baylor wins out, they likely will have beaten OU 2X, so they're probably in line for a 4-seed as an unbeaten conference champ with an arguably strong resume. That being said, screw it - I'll focus on the Bucks.
“You people” refers to all the folks who Shooter McGavin implored to go back to their shanties.
If I had a house like that in Gotham, I’d defend the place like crazy too, just to keep property values up. I also would’ve done more to save Maggie Gyllenhall. Just sayin’.
“Skippy.” That term always cracks me up when used like you just did. +1 for the laugh.
I believe Gameday started its decline with Lee’s stroke. He was always so sharp with his analysis and the chemistry on-set with everyone debating his points (and Lou’s back in the studio) was excellent. Now, it’s just a shell of its former self. Fox’s pregame is what Gameday used to be, at least in my opinion.
Good points, RRR. It’s been Day’s style to drop the hammer repeatedly through the last second of the first half and today was more of the same.
BTW, tough loss last night to Aurora. I was pulling for you guys to represent the OVAC in DIII. I’m hoping Indian Creek can win a playoff game for the first time tonight. I’m pretty sure this is the first November game ever played at Kettlewell.
