JB

I just saw the replay of the play that put Trevor Lawrence out.  This is not an uncommon Freshman error in judgement IMO.   Especially for a "big" QB.  They still have the mindset that they can run through most defenders (like they did in HS).

Carson Palmer did the same thing in his true Freshman year.  He suffered a shoulder separation as I recall.

Hopefully Lawrence will learn a great lesson from this one.

He didn't quite duck fast enough. It's a quick game, another thing different than HS, these defensive guys are a lot faster and arrive a bit earlier.

He should have paid more attention to that math poser, 'if two trains are heading towards each other at different speeds....' :-)

Suddenly, there it was….the moment that that math teacher kept warning him about….the moment where this math shit could save his life………….and he missed it.

Yeah, Tlaw looked awkward on that play, off balance, luckily he’s not not paraplegic, we’ll see how we fare, maybe not muff any more punts on our 5, perfect storm for an upset and we dodged it, with an acrobatic catch from Renfrow and a couple of amazing plays from a kid who had just peeled the green tee.

Yeah, sad.

Shaq Lawson of bills said cj was coming to see him the next day.

Family awaiting autopsy, I’m not aware of any other reported circumstances other that latent health conditions or drugs.

No matter though, just sad, just a kid.

I think Lawrence has been announced starter tomorrow but if not curious to see how Brice performs.  Interested to find out how many phone booths he has.

Idk, but I’ve long thought he should lose the visor.

That said, FSU was easy $$ getting 10 or 13, I forget but last time I checked a W is still marked in the “w” column.

Syracuse spits the bit and loses to a bad team Pitt.

Michigan State spits the bit and loses to a hitherto 1-3 team Northwestern. Nice homecoming in East Lansing.

As sometimes happens two teams have identical W/L records and have played each other. Yet the team that won that matchup is ranked lower than the team that lost.

Nick Saban is unhappy with the way they played on defense. What a surprise. Only this time he may actually have a point.

Speaking of Alabama is there another team out there that is averaging more points offensively in the first half than them? I mean there might be, I haven't actually checked.

And is OSU the consummate underachiever in the first half or a second half powerhouse? Or both?


Is Texas back. Would a one loss Longhorns(Or the Sooners) team have a shot against another one loss power five team(Or ND) when it became Football Four pickin time? Or is West Virginia going undefeated the Big 12s only real hope?


The AAC East, three undefeated teams still there at this point.


Is Miami a paper tiger? 5-1 yet lost to the only good team they played.


If the Gators don't look past Vandy and win they then get a weeks rest before Georgia comes into town. Do they have a good shot against the Dawgs?


UCF Knights, at this point in time it looks like the pretenders get their two toughest opponents back to back at the end of the regular season. First at home and then away. Does an undefeated UFC get in this year over any one loss non conference champ Power Five or ND? Or even a one loss Power Five conference champ, if it is let's say a Big 12 team?


Lastly, how good is Notre Dame?

"Lastly, how good is Notre Dame? "

 so far, it's just like most years.  They remind of UCLA in most years.   They start out strong and everybody hypes them up and then the fall apart at the end of the season.

They might surprise me this year we will see.

I have to stop visiting Cali. Every time I visit Cali on a Saturday, the refs screw us.
