Hey look! Same amount of points!

Tom get in trouble with coach D or something?
OT, but I always wondered; do the insurance companies run out with their cameras after devastating tornadoes to make commercials? Seems kinda insenstive trying to show how sensitive they are like that...
Why do commentators fawn over Bill O'Brien?
PSU audiences expect a certain level of coach-worship when they tune in. ABC is adapting accordingly.
They are more than getting their money's worth this afternoon.
My god, how can you even watch a Penn State game. I watched 2 plays and wanted to fall asleep. Switch it over to CBS.
It seems if you were an OC for the Pats you are a genius...Weiss, Daniels, OBrien. I mean it's not like the QB for the Pats had anything to do with the succes of that franchise.
State gives up on the pass after a drop and strange flying out of bounds incompletion.
MSU misses a FG badly..LOL
What's up with Conroy? He normally is excellent.
Forced punt, and a missed FG against Eastern. Sparty is rebounding so well today, lol.
The Beavers are driving, up to midfield now, and Manion threw a nice lateral to the 50-yard line....quite literally actually. Fortunately, it bounced right out of bounds.
The next play is a beautiful screen pass taken to town by Storm Woods (great RB name), and alas, called back for holding.
"they're going to get Lehman for a block in the back...but what a wonderfully designed play"
The only reason the play worked is because of the block to the back.
I wonder if it is too early for the drinking thread.
What I yelled at the tv.
Wow, lots of empty seats at Beaver Stadium.....
EMU might want to try something different on 3rd and 1.
In fact, some of his calls were called "playground plays" by an announcer in an earlier game.
He makes Debord look like Don Coryell.
Why is Penn State/Temple on ABC?
Because a lot of people with tvs went to penn state. Pretty much how all these decisions are made. But also because people like watching train wrecks. They are interesting
1. I think UCLA's home uniforms are the second-best in college football. It's a very pretty shade of blue.
2. There's something about the name Manfro that strikes me as funny.
With respect to ucla uniforms. I love them
They're just clean and classy looking.
It's been said before but I really like what UCLA and USC have done by both wearing their home jerseys. It looks great with the sharp contrast in colors. However there are two teams that could do it better...
Wow MSU looks bad on offense.
MSU will eventually put up some points, but Maxwell is going to cost MSU some games this year with his play.
I'm starting to think OSU wins next week.
4th year in the program. You have to start wondering exactly how much he can get better. ND aside, he should be lighting Eastern up.
Seems like Sparty's gonna spart themselves into a 3-0 loss.
Two QB runs. Brilliant!
DeAnthony Arnett must really suck if he can't get on the field with this receiver corps. No one gets open.
Who is MSU going to beat in B1G play if they can't score a TD?
well they did go into Central's house and come out with a win sooo thats good for at least 4-5 BIG wins
Seriously though, what's up with Tom? Where he go?
The B1G logo looks bad on the MSU jerseys, like it was painted on.
Worst uniforms in the history of NCAA football. That's why they change every 4 years.
Re: Penn State
"With this coaching, if they can clean up some of those protection issues, they can win the division"
Srsly. Bill O'Brien's wife is in the booth with a gun trained on the commentators, right?
You sure they didn't say "win IN the division"?
Honestly, anybody could win that divison at this point. Do we honestly think PSU is any worse than OSU, Illinois, Wisconsin, or Indiana? Purdue I think is better, best team in the division as of now, but they could slip up here or there and leave the door open for PSU.
Uh oh, good thing MSU has the deepest o line in the universe. Nothing to worry about , ever.
MSU is the first team this year to not put up at least 10 points on EMU in the first quarter this year. Teams that have include Ball State and Illinois State, an FCS team. Sparty gonna Spart.
After one quarter, MSU is currently averaging 0.8 yards per pass attempt (five yards on six attempts).
Gary Danielson is irritating. I also hate the phrase "pitch and catch." I also learned today that the Obama campaign thinks Ohio is an important state in the electoral college.
Someone explain to me the love for Bell....6'2 245lbs and he wants to bounce it outside on every play....also way to pick schools 5 Star LB Thomas. Oh wait I mean no name fullback Thomas.
I think Bell is pretty good. He doesn't have breakaway speed, but can reliably get 4-5 a pop. What I don't get is the constant praise from the announcers for Maxwell, who's looked awful all year.
Bell won't last long at this rate. He's had to carry this team on his back and his legs are feeling it already.
UCLA gets stopped short of the goal, completely fazed by a false start penalty, and goes for the FG. 3-3 tie with quite a bit of the 2nd quarter left. So far, anything can happen in this game, so long as you're in field goal range.
Nebraska leads 34-0, still in the first quarter. Wow.
To a team that lost to Air Force by four touchdowns
I don't think anyone is saying Nebraska is good but jeez Idaho State looks like they would lose to some Texas hs teams
