Champs Sports Bowl Open Thread
Gee golly, thanks for posting this thread. Aww Shucks I'm kind of embarrassed about this honor towards me and me team dang nab it.
Sent through pony express.
FWIW- I got NC State with 12 confidence points.
Yeah, I like NC State in this one too. I think it would be cool for the Big East to finish the season without a single ranked team.
Well I hope we are both right. I am beginning to believe however that my picks are a voodoo jinx hanging around the neck of those chosen. I am having a terrible college pick'em year. I have 3/9 right so far. If this was baseball I'd be batting a .300 and would feel good about myself, but this isn't baseball...
I think the ACC is almost as awful. I picked WV to win. But it's not a big game, so I can live with rooting against WV. (Though it's sad that over the years that the nature of college football has taken away all the teams that I used to root for on the side- Penn State, Nebraska, and West Virginia).
I was 2 of 9 but 6 of the 7 missed were 2-8 in confidence...
You think RR and the staff are watching this game? Hopefully celebrating the commitment of Zettel
I like them
I agree. Not too shabby. I was going to say the other night that Toledo's unis looked similar to WVU old/usual unis. Not tonight!
Though I wouldn't put it past them trying to look less like Michigan now.
I wish our 3-3-5 defense was ranked #2 in the nation.
A Big East schedule. But if we had played Wisconsin and all of them, and our defense was still #2, I'd prefer that.
Time for some Devine intervention
Time to see an effective 3-3-5. I'm excited
Also took NC State with quite a few confidence points (13). The whole Oklahoma State hiring made me question WVU's focus during the break. NC State has played quite a few teams really tough this season. Their an ACC team, so they could completely suck or completely amaze in a tough fought struggle. Woo ACC Roullette.
I completely overlooked the whole confidence points thing and just picked my games becasue I forgot and picked like 20 minutes before the first game. I took WV in this one as well though .............apparently for a whopping 26 confidence points! Come on Sweatervest Jr.!!!!!!
Offensive pass interference...so it really DOES exist.
There was an offensive/defensive pass interference in the Falcons vs.Saints game last night. It was in the same play against R. White and the guy who was covering him. I have never even heard of that being called.
12 sacks as a situational pass rusher...dang
Actually, I'd rather not hire any more WV coaches. That is all.
The WVU Free Safety, Sands I think his name is...one big dude
what his forty time is? Saw on ESPN that he was being considered as a 1st-3rd round pick.
The one Louisville WR was 6'9"!!!
That swing pass by NC State makes me hope that we have been practicing that over and over again. I don't how many times the blocking and open field were there over the course of the season and the pass would be dropped or thrown in front of the receiver too far. If we could nail down that little play, it could be deadly.
Way to go Mustafa!
Im hoping WVU plays as good as their uniforms look. I took them with 20 confidence points. Figured the guys would rally around the coaching turmoil and turn it into a W. Not lookin good so far.
what a hit
FAKE FG FAIL
West Virginia's offense won't work with a Big Ten officiating crew.
I'm kidding, I'm kidding.
Coaching situation give anyone else the creeps?
Pretty sure I saw him on How to Catch a Predator.
Played Alabama? Surprising.
And they'll wish they never have.
So who has a tougher name to spell? B-Hawk or the NC State kicker?
After the Zettel News.
Mark May- Valid Point
Lou Holtz- Still huffing ether
Why not let them play in the Sugar Bowl?! How about it would be more punishment than sitting them against their cupcakes in the beginning of the year. Exceptions- Miami and MSU
Why won't ESPN fire this sad little man?
And no one's watching, did it really happen?
I think under NCAA rules it is considered a legal forward pass.
Depends on if you have insider information that there was indeed actually a fumble.
Now don't pull a Toledo/NYG in the 4th qtr!
I don't think I'd let Stewart come back for even just next year.
Can you blame him for turnovers and missed field goals?
Or the drop on the fair catch...
Sounds like the same things RR gets blamed for, so perhaps, yes, he should be fired after the bowl game.
I still don't think he will be coaching next year if you get my gist.
One hell of an ugly performance by WVU.
Wow. I am used too watching the teams I pick meltdown. Feels much better on the other side of things. WVU is done.
Why the hell aren't they running the ball on all three downs?
And BOOM goes the dynamite.
CONFIDENCE POINTS SECURED!
Anyone else see the defensive lineman from WVU get smashed by the NC State offensive lineman?
How many turnovers is that?
I half wish Coach Stu would call time outs to end the game. Burn all 3.
to want to wander over to WVU boards to drink in their schadenfreude?
an ugly performance in ugly uniforms. Those things are ghastly.
Fuck Phil Knight.
