Regardless of the outcome, this team deserves so much credit for the response they have made this half. This IS a playoff team folks!
Better wake up, or else this could be a long day
I hate the recent bashing/policing of almost every forum post on this site. I do not have time to filter through 200 comments on the recruiting forum thread, and personally prefer that people post this kind of stuff on 11W. If you don’t like it, don’t read it.
I used to get scared every time they took Kaleb out of the game. Now I sometimes wonder if we’re even better when he’s not on the court.
Anyone heard anything regarding Arnette's status for the game Saturday? Really hoping he'll be ready to go so we have our full secondary playing.
TTUN's offense seems to be clicking and their defense looks stout. Combine the away atmosphere with bad weather and I think our offense may struggle quite a bit at the beginning of this game. I don't want it to be, but I think this is going to be a very close game with TTUN jumping out to an early lead.
I also always hate to see overconfidence from so many on this site. This occurred last week prior to the Penn State game and the result was a game much closer than most expected.
Despite all this, I think we still win 24-20, but will need to stage a comeback in the second half to pull it off.
FWIW Cincy, I was not one of the ones that downvoted you or Navy. I respect your opinion, just disagree with some aspects of it. And in reality, the truth probably lies somewhere in the middle.
No, I’m not saying they (ESPN AND CBS) ONLY care about the SEC. I’m saying these networks favor the SEC and promote them in a way to ensure they get significant advantages over other conferences.
Fox, on the other hand, is not like this, and it is refreshing to see a network provide more balanced and reasonable coverage.
Regardless of the extent of the loss and no matter how you spin it, there is NO excuse for Georgia to lose at home to a team like South Carolina. And in case you weren’t aware, South Carolina was playing with their backup QB for a major portion of that game as well.
Frankly, that's their job to try and get viewers. No one is tuning in specifically for Danielson and Nessler.
I’m confused, isn’t this exactly what we are debating??
Give me a break... OK, I’ll concede that they may not show highlights of ALL of the SEC games. But pay attention next time and you will notice that they definitely show highlights from almost all of the on-going/finished SEC games before even talking about other conference games.
Why is it so hard to believe Navy?
- The SEC always gets the advantage of having elevated rankings every year, despite sub-average opponents and performance by most of these same teams.
- ever watched ESPN highlights during half time or post game? Ever realize that ESPN reviews highlights from ALL of the SEC games before talking about another conference? Hmm
- ever watch CBS promote the top SEC game of the week as always being “the best teams from the best conference”? No bias there at all.
- notice how Georgia is in the top four still despite losing to an absolutely terrible South Carolina team at home? Why don’t we ever hear about that loss anymore, yet we heard about it weekly when it happened to OSU? And why does Georgia get this benefit of the doubt and not OSU?
I could go on and on, but no one will ever convince you so it doesn’t matter.
This should have been a blow out. We have killed ourselves in this game. Without the three turnovers, the second team would be in now
We should be blowing this team out. Simply beating ourselves in this game. Unbelievable
Knew we would come out looking flat today. Everyone was way too confident this week.
Great game Bucks! Why the hell was Matt Leinart at the game?
Ryan Day is merciless!
If Tua plays, Bama beats LSU easily. Not buying the LSU hype. Burrow is good but the LSU defense is not playing at a good enough level to keep up with the Tide. But it doesn’t matter, both will be in top 4 of first CFP ranking regardless. Playoff committee is worse than ESPN when it comes to SEC bias.
Yes it has been kind except for that ONE game (thanks Urban). If only they could have just kept the bowl game in Tempe...
I really don’t understand why the SEC always gets the benefit of automatically getting 2 teams in the playoffs. The conference has been grossly overrated since 2014 and their “king” Alabama got curb stomped in the championship game last year. Yet, Alabama is number 1 once again this year without playing any good teams. The selection committee is a farce and is 100% persuaded by anything ESPN tells them.
Haha, no worries. Just glad you were able to find and post the rule.
Well, there was more than 2 minutes left in the game. So I guess with the way the rule is written, the clock should run after the penalty. Still think it is a stupid rule. Should be changed to under 5 minutes in the half IMO.
