Graduated from OSU in '97 in Metallurgical Engineering. I almost went to Michigan, but my dad told me I'd have to change my last name. He was the smartest man who ever lived.

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.

Desmond should've removed for violating society's commenting policy. Stay classy, Des. Your TTUN education is betraying you.

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.

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.  

Comment 09 Nov 2019

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.
