I'm going to one up you and say Chris Gamble's INT return for a TD against PSU in 2002. I was at that 2004 game you mention, 2005 Texas and 2006 Michigan and still think 02 was the loudest.

Probably right - and I was thinking the same thing.  LSU/Florida also had competition in USC/ND, but still telling that it was ESPN's largest primetime audience in 2 years and BIG NUDE KICKOFF managed to beat it pretty soundly.  I can't see how PSU/Iowa drew much of audience outside of those 2 fan bases though, so the ABC number was probably pretty low this week.

For all the bellyaching about noon vs. primetime and being "featured" and the size of the audience...I present Gerd:

Putting Clay Travis at #1 and Zach Smith in front of the Dubcast invalidates this list for me.  Just bein' real.

Because they contribute an absolute shit ton of money to the conference, who in turn sends an absolute shit ton of money to the teams in the conference, so Ohio State can spend an absolute shit ton of money on cool stuff/faciliities to get the #croots, so that Ohio State can win an absolute shit ton of games, so that an absolute shit ton of people want to watch our games, so that advertisers want to spend an absolute shit ton of money on selling the products during those games, so in turn the networks can make an absolute shit ton of money?

If South Carolina ends up 6-6 or 5-7, then it absolutely could and SHOULD be considered a shit loss for UGA.  This wasn't a double OT loss to LSU - this was a OT loss against a 3 score dog, at HOME. 

Comment 11 Oct 2019

My point is basically this - you don't NEED to go undefeated to get into the playoffs.  I wasn't trying to insinuate that you are not permitted to lose games.  Losing games you should win by 2 to 3 scores is a giant skid mark on your year - and therefore influences the bias of people in the national media who don't watch every minute of every game. 

Lose a close one to Oklahoma - ok, fair enough.  But you can't compound that with losing your pants in Iowa City and expect the media, committee or fans in general to go to bat for you.

Comment 11 Oct 2019

I don't see the point in getting worked up about it.  But that is just my opinion.  Simple equation is don't lose games you shouldn't lose and everything else works itself out.

2018 - Don't get your ass whooped by Purdue and you're in the CFP

2017 - Don't get your ass whooped by Iowa and you're in the CFP

2015 - Don't tighten your butt with the most talented team ever against MSU and you're in (and maybe winning) the CFP

And so forth...

If I'm not mistaken, they sold off those jerseys and helmets at a public event a number of years ago - so those chrome helmets are no more.

In Birm's weekend stuff column, he mentioned that the Bradford situation was at still at an "interview" phase as opposed to pushing for a commitment. Very well could be that we didnt like what we heard or saw.
Comment 02 Oct 2019
Yeah season 2 and the Landry, Tyra stuff was a stretch. I enjoy it otherwise. Heard season 3-5 are great.
Comment 02 Oct 2019

Definitely not a football movie, but I still enjoy it. 

Working my way through the Friday Night Lights TV series via Amazon Video right now.  Just started season 3.  As much as the source material of the show is football...the actual football is a subplot of the series.  That said, love the show and highly recommend it for anyone who didn't catch it years ago.

Comment 02 Oct 2019

Respectfully disagree.  Criticism is fine if it is "the linebackers are playing poorly, they need better coaching, their angles are bad blah blah".  Much of the last year was, specifically, Tuf and Pete suck, how we do not have anyone better to play etc.  Undersized, slow, shouldn't be starting in the B1G etc.  There were many comments that were far more egregious than just performance criticism. 

Either way, they are killing it right now and that's all that matters.

Blackout next week too, right? Saturday night ABC again, right? Bucks by 40.

Not class specific and can't embed, but one DJ Byrnes himself just Twitter nuked Nevada and his "sources". Basically calls him a casino heir who fakes his way as an insider because he had 1 person a decade ago. Essentially calls him a phony. I know folks cited him and his "===" posts so figured it was newsworthy. Edit: guess it started with Biddle calling Nevada out by his real name, calling him a fraud and saying everyone in the Woody thinks he's a joke. Wooooo boy.
