Three fumbles, all recovered by ND in the first half, that killed drives and resulted in Irish TDs.  Their receivers are too big for Navy's undersized DBs, and Newberry insisted on blitzing 1-2 guys every other down.  We couldn't force a punt, and kept giving them the ball.  Another ''fumble' by the backup QB, where he pitched it and the LB intercepted the pitch and housed it. Then they started passing and punting.

Sad part is, when Navy was running the option, ND couldn't really stop them.  Perry was ripping off 9-11 yards a carry. His stats don't show it, because of a couple of sacks.

I just hope they cleans hit up for SMU and Houston.  They can still finish 10-2, which is a rare feat for Navy.

Iowa State will replace KSU/UT.  With three teams inthe ACC Coastal at 7-3, I won't be surprised at all if one of Pitt/UVA/Va Tech jumps into the rankings as well. One of those has to have beaten one of the others, which gives them a win over a team that's 7-3.

IU's problem is that the teams they've beaten are awful - like 3-7 awful.  Their best wins are Nebraska and Ball State at 4-6. They lost to a 4-6 MSU and got destroyed by the Buckeyes.

It's too bad, really, because they played well coming back against PSU, and statistically they're on par with a lot of those teams between 15-25.  If they finish 8-4, with a good showing against UM, there's a good chance they crack the Top 25 in the final rankings.

Dobbins and Smith would make this defense look silly running zone read. And then, boom, RPO to Hill/Olave/Victor/Ruckert.

LSU playing by the old WAC rules with BYU. “You’re can score 50 on us, but we’ll score 51.”

The Bearcats have been playing with fire for a couple of weeks now. Almost lost to ECU, which is a bad football team. If they don’t square shit away pronto, Memphis is gonna bitch slap them in two weeks.

NP. Charlie is the youngest brother, but got their father’s name, thus the “II” on his jersey.

Dude, I hate to say it, but you sound like Bama fans. 

This is the 45th OSU season I can remember following every single game. There are so few seasons this, where the Buckeyes are a freaking machine. Enjoy every single minute of it. We are living in a golden age of OSU football. All it takes is one bad coaching hire and you become that team.

Somewhat different from Bo Jackson’s injury, at least the manner in which it happened. Bo was dragging a player and ran his own leg out of the socket. However when it jammed back in, IIRC, it damaged a significant artery which caused necrosis of the femoral head or the pelvis. Imagery at that time couldn’t detect it, so by the time the figures it out, permanent damage had been done to his hip.

Hoping the best for Tua, and that he’s able to make a full recovery. 

If not for that new, super whamadine surgery Tua had on his ankle, he never would’ve been in this game. Just something to consider. Not that anyone could foresee this, but sometimes newer, better, stronger backfires. 

Fun fact: Aloiah Earl (formerly a contributor on 11W) is one of the sports med doctors at Bama.
