USC takes the lead 7-0
Afternoon Open Thread
There's potential for some really good ball games this afternoon. I hate the national knob slobbing for USC, but I hope they crush ND. And after that first drive that looks like a distinct possibility.
Crush the Domers, 'SC.
i hope usc just crushes nd.
Anyone else think Ark has a chance? If Mallet plays smart I think they can do it.
just got popped!
And yeah i think Ark has a shot - their offense has been nasty so far this season.
Minnesota. The Gophers can't rely on only Decker to win.
Minny is going to have to play one hell of a game to have a chance to win.
Great fake field goal by the Irish. Well executed
with a drop-o.
Barkley has happy feet.
Seems to be a bit of a let down for SC after that first drive.
is like a poorman's Reggie Bush.
Bradford BLEW UP that safety!
has a great thing going with the running backs they have the poorman's Bush in McKnight and the poorman's White in Bradford plus about 4 other 5 stars.
Unsportsman-like conduct should be called as his extended celebrations, especially the most recent one after that first down he got on a fourth down play was more than ridiculous.
I know he is Jesus and all, but c'mon.
Brain injury = generous reffing
now but Texas Tech is up 21-0 on Nebraska.
Texas Tech up 21-0 over Nebraska with 7 minutes left in the first half. Where are the cornhuskers? Edit: Sorry beat by 2 mins
MArshall is up 7-0 on WVU
Arkansas has to feel good right now. Awaiting KO up 7-3 with 1:40 and timeouts
At the half.
11:54 to go. Broncos in it deep.
ND announcers are even worse than I remembered.
The ChiSox's Hawk thinks these guys are homers.
Hawk Harrelson wrote the book.
has a cannon arm, he will have a great future in the pros.
...after he's had a great career at Arkansas
for Bill Stewart and WVU
Arkansas is up on Florida 7-3 and in their redzone. Never saw this one coming (at half almost).
Fla played some good D down there, but Ark kinda blew it not getting a TD. That would've really put a ton of pressure on Tebow to throw in the 2nd half.
Arkansas' D looks surprisingly legit. I just hope they bend and don't break.
5 sacks so for with 6:50 to go in the third.
Horrible play by ARK's D
Duplicate post, sorry.
sick of Man'te Teo's antics - dude you are a frosh stop dancing around.
You gotta give it to him, Clausen does the "I'm-so-pissed" chinstrap rip off better than anyone.
Jesus, what a dumbshit move by 93 (USC)
"Zombie Nation" appears to have become PSU's fight song now. They play it after scores, turnovers and big plays. They never play their real fight song anymore. Weird.
a play by USC - I thought they were gonna run it and the throw it deep - pete carrol always one step ahead.
I can't do it anymore. These NBC announcers are just such unreal douchebags.
Actually, the CBS sec homers are worse. How insecure are these dudes about Florida losing?
about these two clowns announcing a few weeks back . It is SOOOO over the top.
and is supposedly the fourth RB on the depth chart. WOW!
HUGE pass/run for TD by Mallet and Childs.
Oh shit the zebras have chance to take the points off the board. Uh oh... UPHELD!!
Man that was big! Especially with it looking like the Ark D is tired.
34-14 USC. USC could end putting 40 or more on ND again. Which, like, would make me LOL.
TD for Fla set up by a beautiful assist from the ref.
Got up to use the facilities an I missed it. WTF?
is really good.
that is all.
coming next monday - a freep article about the one that got away.
Arky looks to be trying to find ways to lose this game.
This Tejada is a clown, just giving away the game. Damn it!
Arkansas mistakes > Florida Defense
Can't keep a good Tebow down.
Is there any way FLA loses this now?
is Tebow's bag man - just a few more yards for a Fg
the man was in motion when the ball was snapped!!!
Domers making it a ballgame again. 34-27 with nearly 8 mins to go.
Does Ark really think anyone but Tebow is going to carry the ball? Media swallows Tebow's load in 3...2...1...
Ahh, nothing like having the refs on your side there Florida. Just exceptional spots they're getting.
+1 to you both.
Could Verne be anymore excited for an impartial announcer? It is so ridiculous.
Florida is CBS's version of NBC's ND.
Where was the offensive pi call on Florida during Tebows party ball throw into the endzone. and yes the cbs announcers sound like they want to get on their knees and enjoy tebow more. wtf, thats two huge blown calls (number two was the personal foul on arkansas during florida's last td drive, the florida player was blocking and got knocked on his ass and got his team a first down and 15 yards).
Yep, arky fans have a legit gripe with that game as even the homer-rific announcers were calling that offensive PI.
Speaking of the announcers, how embarrassing is it that one of them screamed "Good!" and let out a little excited shriek at the florida fg. Memo to the rest of the sec, you're all Florida's little brother in CBS' mind.
It was Verne Lundquist.
Maybe he took FLA on the money line.
as a second post: ND decided to play some football, and they made it back within a touchdown and are at usc's 40 with 2:15 togo
who has been worse the ND slurpers or the CBS boys - either way both are uncalled for.
If USC would send 5 guys Clausen would be sacked instantly.
I'd love to see the USC/ND game in OT.
I call BS flag on the PF! It looked like the DB tried to jump over him, not spear him.
It doesn't matter, he kneed him in the head. Should have jumped higher.
That looked dirty. Jeez...
heh, no discipline for SC.
I'm rooting for SC, but I like seeing Jimmah have a good game. Hopefully he'll keep it up and then go pro.
That was a light roughing the passer, IMEO.
Ticky tack, thy name is every call against SC's defense in this game.
At least it's got to be exciting to be a ND fan.
EDIT: What was up with that pass? And the clock doesn't stop until the ref signals it right?
Hey there bad play calling.
Bad pass. Jimmah is no Tate!
Kidding of course, the kid is a hell of a football player.
I've never seen a team get back a second in that fashion.
Seems to be the right call, but also don't forget where this game is taking place.
The current extensive use of video replay makes many things possible now.
Should be a second left. Not the best play call there though.
What...what? Is that seriously a rule? The ref didn't signal the play over until the time was done. it wasn't like he was trying to move slowly.
Bonus! ND fail x 2
Another bad ball by Jimmy. Yikes.
for what other team in the country do the officials check the clock on a review to see if there is 1 second left on the clock? how many times have you seen games end after the ball is dropped and then the clock ticks to 0. not that it matters, clausen = hoax, oh and hurray purdue
Matt Barkley, watch out for this kid.
ESPN, is that you?
