Ohio State Juggernaut moves on
Penn State juggernaut is paused.
What a great game in an unbelievable environment.
College Football at its most exciting.

Congrats to my bro Driver. Tough game to lose, both teams played a good game. The season ain't over so I'll take the loss and get ready for next week. :=)

Storm the field for beating Syracuse? Act like you've been there before?

They always storm the field in a conference squeaker, it’s fun, they’re in college, and a 3rd stringer took them 90 yds. to win when we muffed a punt on our 5 for a TD.

Heart of a Champion, like Dabo said.

Yeah, I was hoping KB would come out of the phone booth, but our frosh is decent enough, in retrospect, KB earned starter, and what’s the diff if they swap out every 2 series, for a guy who sat behind DWatt for 2 yrs.

“We’ll take it...”

#4 tOSU going FULL C.H.U.D., scooby alert, rub-roh ...

Good game and congrats JB. In tight games like that both teams can hold their heads up. And I agree, these are college kids we're talking about. We were all young once, maybe some folks have forgotten those days and that youthful zest for life. I find it youthfully refreshing. Maybe that's one of the reasons I love college football so much. Much more than Pro ball.

After two time-outs that's the fourth down call Penn State comes up with?
I was stunned. I know it was an RPO, but scrambling from the 5 step drop had been, by far PSU's best play all night. My step son, a huge tOSU fan, kept yelling, "Hit him! Hit him! So someone please HIT HIM!" at the screen all night. I do not know why they expected 6 yards on a play that had not worked that well all night. It is probably a memory trick, but it seemed like that play was negative yards more often than positive. tOSU's d line lived up to its hype. I have not seen that much deep penetration since I stopped watching porn. But their pass rush was not maintaining lanes, and no one was successfully spying on McSorelly all night. That was the play.

Great game. tOSU has so many great, fast skill players. And not Big Whatever fast,.fast fast.

Well, some people have that passive aggressive third party shit down pat.

We beat Syracuse my freshman year. Did.we.storm the field? Fuck No! We went out to Michigan and Grand and hit the bars hard! Maybe turn over a car or two. Saved the storm the field for important things like the last home loss of the year for a 2 - 9 team. Or beating Meatchicken or Our Lady of the Perpetual Tie at home, which we didn't because we didn't. Not squeaking by a team you should have stomped. It's a thin line between youthful zest for life and being a hooligan.

Alabama held to 7 points in the second half? Oh wait.... nevermind :-) Was I wrong or did I see one of the fifth string no scholarship type guys on the field for the Tide yesterday?

OSU looked like a champion in their game yesterday coming from 12 points down is no easy thing in that atmosphere.

Kentucky, not just for breakfast anymore. This team has a serious running game. Tough bunch, reminds me of Michigan State's OL of several years back. But also they've got a very underrated defense IMO.

Florida gets another W. And with Kentucky continuing to show some strength that loss to them is looking better and better. I expect them to crack the Top 25 this week. Mullen is an excellent coach and his enthusiasm is contagious.

LSU and retread Burrows plays another good game, but really Ole Miss is pathetic on defense.

Georgia keeps on chewing up opponents. One more cupcake game against Vandy and then they get into the meat of their season.

Clemson another gut check game like the Buckeyes. Those are the games you have to win if you're going to go to the Football Four.

Syracuse, not a bad team at all. As long as their QB doesn't get knocked out like last year they should go bowling what with the weakfish schedule they have left. With only ND and the Wolfpack currently undefeated.


Speaking of Notre Dame, Book impressed me yesterday, kids got a good head on his shoulders. Dexter came back at the right time too. A very good weapon for Kelly if he can stay healthy. One other name Jerry Tillery, how'd LSU let this kid get away?

UCF, I know it was only Pitt(and Pitt sucks)but this team keeps on winning. I just wish they would have scheduled one tough power Five team.

Michigan, I have serious doubts about Harbaugh and his OC's ability to get some offense out of this bunch when they are facing a defense with a pulse. Not that they don't have talent but their play calling sucks.(Kinda like that last play we tried sucked) But Michigan seems to do that sort of thing for most of the game. Luckily he has possibly the best DC in the nation working for him.

Auburn, absolutely pathetic effort yesterday. I'd be on these guys hard for it if I were running the show down there.

Washington, how did these guys lose to Auburn and/or how did BYU beat Wisconsin. Oh well, that's why the saying 'on any given day' was invented I guess. But when any QB is in the zone and hot like Browning was they're tough to beat.


Texas and Herman hold on for dear life and scratch out another win. But the Bane of Maryland still hangs low in the marshes of Longhorn Land.


Cal, sorry Bo the Duck were too much for them Too bad Oregon pissed away a victory over the overrated Cardinal.



Michigan State, like Bama they played a cupcake. This time a MAC(Not a Big Mac) But they ate the Chippewas like they were a Big Mac with no special sauce. A couple of weeks from now there'll be a full meal on the table. Should be a great game.



And lastly, Beloved Stony Brook roared back in the second half to nip the Richmond Spiders. Joe Carbone threw 3 TD passes(Two in the 2nd half) and a 2 point conversion pass to cap off the victory. I just wish we could kick a friggin extra point.

For what it is worth, that particular cupcake has eaten us three times since 1990. They are the only directional Michigan school to beat either MSU or Meatchicken. Ever.

Whodathunkit?



So who is Bosa's backup?
My understanding is Jonathan Cooper is getting the starts. He has been a rotational player. Also highly rated coming out of HS.  Not that it.actually needs to be.said.

I thought maybe they'd put Young on Bosa's side.

Sometimes a cupcake can be hard to swallow.Yes, that happens.


BTW, I'm rooting for Syracuse getting in a bowl game this year with a Big Ten team. With their remaining schedule they may just sport a good enough record to play the Sparties.Or the Lions. Now that would be a hoot.


And sorry, I shouldn't have butted in on you and JBs conversation. I guess I should have posted to him separately that I had no problem with the storming of the field. It's just that you've been so jervous and nerky lately I just couldn't resist.

Besides if I had sent a separate post you would have taken it the same way anyways right?  Right. :-)

It's a public board. It is really impossible to "butt into" a conversation.

So, other than each other, who beats Alabama or Georgia?

Who beats Ohio State?

Who beats Clemson?

Who beats Oklahoma?

Who beats Notre Dame?

Sure it's possible to butt into a conversation, public forum notwithstanding As always we disagree.

Regular season including conference playoffs it looks like.

Nobody
Bama
Nobody
Nobody
Nobody
Nobody


Of course tht can't be right.
