I think the Sparty line is 6, and weird time, I like Bryan and Etienne running and taking air out.  If we score 24 we win, I donít know how they it up more than 17, we could sh!thammer them if we get up a little and air it out to Tee et. al., no love lost between us and Jimbo Baggins.

The Sparties seemed to have a bit of trouble pass blocking. IMO Az St has the potential to cause some trouble for them in that respect.


A&M is starting Mond which seems to indicate Jimbo is planning on running the ball. IMO they are going to need big plays to beat the Tigers as with that defense sustaining long drives will be difficult to say the least. I've heard that the Aggies have been practicing lining up in the I with the QB under center like Jimbo did at Fla St so I assume he may be running some pro sets. Mond has a good arm however so some big plays could materialize through the air. But I'm skeptical.


Pitt only has a few more games against us so I expect them to be playing their asses off even more than usual. This will be Narduzzi's most experienced defense so far. It should be a great game to watch.

The Duke/N'Wstrn game should be interesting with the Wildcats looking to avenge that pounding they took last year. Should be a close game Thorson looked rusty last week. Duke has a decent defense and a pretty good QB.

I think Thorson was a freshman when my son was.  My son is now 37.

We are not a very physical team on defense, this will not bode well for us later on in the season. I am impressed by a couple of the Pitt DBs. Especially the kid.

I like any call which turns Jimbo Fisher into a lunatic.

Still, gutless call.

Trojans need to make some blocks.

Or have their QB do it himself, despite the OL play.

Jimbo said it best after the game. ď It was a tough call. Itís part of the gameĒ

======

The reality is replay(s) had no angle that could overturn the call on the field.

You were right about earring it out, cap.

Pretty hostile environment.

I thought the ball went over the cone, but we were fortunate with the ruling on the field.

Our vaunted D gave up a lot of yards, but A&M is pretty good.

I feel better with Bryant in the game and not sure there is any logic to the qb substitution pattern,but on the other hand you canít leave tlaw on sidelines all season.

Itís a ďW,Ē cliched I know, but itís all you really want at this time of the year on the road in SEC territory.

It was a fantastic game JB. I'm happy your guys won really bro.


Personally, I thought from where the ball hit the ground there was no way it could go over the pylon. I've always had a 3D brain when it comes to that sort of thing.

Some day some bright physics student is going to develop the math for where the ball left the guy's hands and where it made contact with the ground. If they can do it with baseball pitches they can do it with a football. But just doing the math from point of departure to point of contact should be an easy calc these days. Even if the numbers from departure and contact are crude, but decent estimations, the math should be able to be done. Put some ordinary NASA comps on it and they could come up with it in about ten minutes. Someone call Kennedy now. ;-)





I believe using the precise mathmatical formula you could accurately then plot the flight path of the football.

45 years ago I used to do that sort shit with a slide rule in 10th grade. Totally surprised that with the electronic stuff at our disposal in this age someone hasn't come up with it yet.

Looks like the Blue Demon defense was too much for the son of Thor.

The Az St/Spartie game was past my bedtime. Watched a little of the first quarter it was clear that this game was going to be a battle.

Apparently the Spartans, once again, couldn't hold the pass.


The Huskers got Buffaloed too I see.



Lastly it was nice to see my team come out in the second half properly motivated. I would have loved to hear what was said in the locker room at halftime. :-)
