I actually thought the booth was correct on most of the calls. The trouble is with the rules.
I have the most difficulty with what is currently considered a catch, and of course the targeting penalties. In all three booth overturns, I think the booth technically got it right.
The targeting review was correct, and because it happened to the QB, that is going to get looked at. Great play from Wade but the call was right, I wish he wouldnt be ejected for 1st infraction, but they are trying to make the game safer.
I hate the catch rule, always have, I believe a person can make a catch with their hands and demonstrate control. The football move is a joke, and maintaining position through the ground is a bit ridiculous.
But, all calls were applied correctly.
Only one that was questionable was the fumble return for a touchdown, and that was technically correct?
Great season! Disappointed in the loss by what I feel was the better team. I'm looking on the bright side and finding satisfaction with the Michigan win.
Therapy time over. Time for me to keep moving on. Go Bucks!
You play to win recruiting.
This makes sense. Someone make it so.
I also think lack of numbers in the UM and BTCG were reasons for drop off. He had opportunity to make some statements there. Kind of tough though when 2 & 3 guys are blocking you. I think the suspension and the seeming lack of production in those two games diminished his growing support to win the award.
How about a fist fight between Harbaugh and Saban. Somehow I feel that this could actually happen. Saban is easily annoyed and Harbaugh is easily annoying. Result... God ole coach brawl. That would be so good.
Not a big fan of Revenge. More a fan of disrespect. Revenge is a poor motivator in my opinion. Proving others wrong is better. Better preparation and execution is the best. Last time Clemson had confidence that they would win and seemed to know they had an advantage. Would like to enter this game with the same attitude, confident we know their weaknesses and having prepared fully to exploit them.
This is the toughest duty as a fan. Knowing you have to leave the room for the team to perform well. I'm glad you did your part.
Interesting. I sat, all mellow on the couch, through the first half. I got up and paced, yelled, and never sat down the entire second half.
Will that be how it is seen by the committee, nope, but that is the correct order and it is a no brainer.
No talking head is saying this, but it is true... nobody wants OSU. It is all about nobody wants Clemson at the moment... kind of like the 2nd string QB is everybody's favorite.
The other top 3 will "want" a chance at us, but they all know it'll be like drinking from a fire hose.
If we lose BTCG and still get in... good Lord that will be must watch TV. An angry focused buckeye squad will be down right scary.
Went over to see MGB tonight. Literal second article was the link below. Not SAT scores but they are touting, "Our guys go to class." Kind of the same, bar is just lower.
Noon kick is 8:00 am Alaska time. Love an 8:00 game! Out of bed, coffee, kick. Not much better than that. Best start to any day.
One other stat to note. Penn State scored fewer points against the Bucks than Rutgers or FAU.
^^ This, on a weather thread, is gud stuf.
So what your saying is, you get an accurate weather forecast (call it 94%), when the site is not down. (call it 60%). Hmmm. Accuweather may be on par with this?
I like this forum topic!
It seems AAU status is a critical factor. Although both teams don't quite fit the Big Ten mold. However, I am learning to think of them as Big Ten teams. It is unfortunate they are not great at football, but I can remember about 4 years ago Purdue being accused of accepting BIG money and doing nothing but being a garbage team... and a few years later we are upset. Some teams aren't good. Those teams change. Last year NW won the west, this year they are bad. Things change
RU and MD will get better. I'm fine with their addition. Every conference has bottom feeders. We are blessed to be a top tier program, and I appreciate all the teams in the BIG and wish all but one well.
On another note. I would love to see the practice of relegation employed in the NCAA. That has been brought up before. I love that idea. I'm not entirely sure how it would work best, but think it would be fun to see it in action.
it's an 8:00 am game here in Alaska. Love the 8:00 am games! Wake up and game is on! Coffee, pancakes. Love it.
I like this observation. I had not considered it until I read it here. Regular season games that are big time. Going to be a fun stretch run. Go Bucks!
This is how I think it SHOULD be. LSU, has nice wins. OSU decent schedule, margin of victory, passed weird eye test criteria, Bama cause Bama, PSU over Clemson because of Wofford. If bama beats lsu then they would move to #1.
SMU- Memphis - 94 points with 8 minutes left. Clearly going to break 100. 125?
Games this evening seem like defense is optional.
I'm guessing you are rooting for Memphis. It looks like that is working out.
For a poor slate today, I've enjoyed a lot of these games.
C Bryant committed PI on every look his way it appeared to me. Refs could have flagged him every time. Game was messy all around.
