Anyone watching? LSU/Alabama looks fun.
WVU leading Texas in the 3rd Q 26-16
ND leads Pitt 14-7 near the end of the 1st half
LSU had been in control of that game, in spite of the score. Those two fumbles are the difference.
If lsu pulls this off, osu is going to the title game.
FSU/OSU then? Though if Baylor wins out I bet the computers put them ahead of OSU which would give them a solid hold on #2
Insane rain at the Virginia Tech vs Miami game. Also, no way ND loses to Pitt.
Texas gets within 3. Now down 23-26
Miami getting spanked by a so-so VT team. I wonder how far they fall if they end up losing?
No one saw/watched it. So who knows.
I'm waiting for the Michigan game replay. I'm a sadomasochist. Afterwards, I'm going to jump into the Detroit River with a Meijer plastic bag rubber banded around my face. Should be a good ending to a night.
Good to see you posting again jhackney.
Overall, LSU has really been moving the ball quite well - 232 yards in the first half over 33 plays, which is a shade over 7 yards per snap on average. Zach Mettenberger is 10-13 for 173 yards with 1 TD. Interestingly, Travin Dural has only caught one pass and has the only recieving TD.
If LSU can do that again, but minus the fumbles, they should win by at least 7. Still, easier said than done.
I don't buy into Bama as the #1 team this year, so I'm hoping LSU can keep it together here.
but motherfuck me if Ohio St plays for the National Title because other teams lose.
would be ahead of OSU.
Night and day difference between them and Michigan. We aren't even close to elite, not that this is some revelation.
I would love to have a strong-armed pro style quarterback like Mettenberger or a game manager like McCarron.
This is big boy football. Both teams would destroy Ohio State, as well as the rest of our shitty conference.
Cam Cameron plz?
Why would he leave LSU for here? This makes as much sense to me as people clammoring for Les Miles to leave LSU for here. That's a huge step downward.
That stop on 4th was such a sweet individual play. Wow.
Gutsy call by Saban.
Watching Hoke presser. He likes the play calling
Stanford did it to Oregon for an entire game. They decided they were tougher than Oregon and decided to ram the football down their throat for 40 minutes. Not saying that we can or should be doing this at the moment, but it certainly is possible.
I hope that is just "coach speak". If he really believes that I just don't know what to think.
Of course it is coach speak. Most good coaches don't throw their staff under the bus in a post-game presser. If they do, it's a media firestorm. Nothing to be gained by saying any differently.
Maybe my second-favorite Lloyd moment of all time was 2003 at MSU when Michigan abandoned a dominant run game late to try a bootleg play-action pass that was blown up for a fumble-scoop-score that pulled MSU back into the game.
At the end Lloyd was interviewed for television.
Reporter: "Coach, who made the call to pass on that play?"
Lloyd: "I did."
Watching Bama run is depressing.
I know everyone hates to hear it but that level of football top to bottom is impressive.
That drive was legit.
The Texas/WVU is a shoot out. Trading TD's. 40-37 WVU
Dammit Bama better win this game. If OSU sneaks it's way into the title game....
Then again, I'd love to see OSU and it's fans get a damn reality check.
Only ours come against crappy B1G teams.
Don't worry, we play a good B1G team in a couple of weeks, I'm sure it will be even better then.
How about UCLA vs. Arizina huh? You know, if Arizona loses they will have the same record as Michigan.
Yeldon is a beast.
Yes. Bama knows how to just run the fucking football.
Texas about to win this game.
I would like that
I guess I jinxed it. Going for the tie to force OT.
UT/WVU Going to OT barring total breakdown on the KO
defense giving up 40. Hahaha.
On the other hand, he needs to give Holgerson some hairstyling tips.
Dangerous pass by LSU.
and again!!! on Rees's next pass.
for leaving Florida. Saban and Miles just bring it every game. Urbz has no equal in the B1G.
He has no equal but he knows the weak conference will hurt him overall. I think that is why he made the comment about other schools stepping up their recruiting.
but this year if teams slip up, he gets in the NC.
And for the future, just has to be top 4.
Both QBs have been really efficient so far, too.
Bama-LSU. If they're not going to call targeting on THAT, rip the damn rule right out of the book.
Watching any other team run makes me think Fitz is afraid to hit the hole.
