Here's your thread to discuss what there was of offense in this game. Remember to keep it brief, sort of like the offense.
Because I'm drinking for each clap and it makes me feel better sharing the news with you.
Tempe is beautiful right now in many, many ways.
ASU with 40+ by half?
EDIT: Quite a 2nd half comeback from ND. Blowout and loss are in the same family so the #posbang continues.

So the NYT has made a map showing the percentage of facebook users from each county in the US who have "liked" the "college football" page. They're calling that "where college football means the most" which I think may be a little flawed for multiple reasons. The results are certainly a little interesting in any case.
Some obvious things that stand out are the relative apathy of the East Coast and West Coast toward college football, and the South's obsession with it. However, I did find it mindly surprising that Texas, Tennessee, and Louisiana have so fewer counties with 30% or more "liked" than Alabama. Also, it seems Nebraska, despite their relative downturn over the past decade, is still just as much into college football as Alabama.
I also found it rather interesting that for Michigan, the counties with 30% or more FB users liking college football are centered around East Lansing. Would that have been any different had this been made a decade ago? Washtenaw county is still relatively high overall (24%), but well below the 30% threshold.
OU Baylor seems to be the best game going on now.
Iowa up 7
Purdue up 3 on Wisc.
Started off this morning with a few showers, but they're diminishing as our system pushes east. Chilly and windy with steady northwest winds around 20mph with gusts up to 30mph (small trees sway, empty plastic garbage cans tip over, you can hear the wind "whistling"). Tie down that tent! Temps start in the low 40s and reach 45 for lunch, but those winds will keep it feeling like the low and mid 30s. Cloudy skies through the morning, but we start to see some breaks towards lunch.
Hanging on to 45 degrees for the CT start! Unfortunately, we're keeping the winds too. Remaining out of the northwest at 20mph with gusts still up around 30 - this is when you use a little effort to walk against the wind. Wind chills will be running in the low 30s, so you'll want the coat and your favorite warm winter accessories! We will see some sunshine peeking through the clouds, and the winds will begin to gradually fall through the first half.
Temps drop a little to 42, and we're finally seeing more of a mix of sun and clouds. Winds have fallen a bit, down to a steady 18mph with gusts in the mid 20s - still pretty windy! That'll keep it feeling like the low 30s. Winds will continue to drop through the second half. Hot chocolate anyone?
Headed out of Ryan Field you'll want to warm up and celebrate a win! We drop temps to the upper 30s, but finally start to get rid of the wind gusts. Still a cool wind out of the northwest, steady at 15mph, and gusts here and there to 20 (leaves blow about, maybe some small twigs, you'd see some white horses on the water). If you're staying out late, temperatures will fall into the mid 30s, and that wind chill will go down to the upper 20s, with winds shifting westerly to about 10mph. A decent amount of clouds hang with us overnight, and that'll be the case Sunday. If you're traveling Sunday morning, winds will shift to come out of the southwest ahead of our next system, and pick up again too - steady 15-20mph winds, gusting in the 20s. You may run into some rain and wintry mix as well. Let's go blue!
