about to kickoff in Arlington between Oklahoma State and Missouri
Cotton Bowl open thread
Let's go Pokes.
It's GUS TIME!
Come on Okie State! Add to that SEC loss column... even though it still feels like the Dr Pepper Big 12 Championship instead of the Cotton Bowl
I could not care less about either of these teams but I'll be rooting against the SEC by default.
I hope OK State takes Missouri down. The more teams that go down that finished high in the SEC, the better.
...here is how TeamRankings compares these two teams:
|Rush Play %||51.39%||55.86%|
|Pass Play %||48.61%||44.14%|
|3D Conv %||37.27%||42.50%|
|RZ Scoring %||86.79%||85.45%|
|Opp Completion %||55.58%||63.69%|
|Opp 3D Conv %||31.38%||36.96%|
|Opp RZ Scoring %||70.00%||83.33%|
The real OSU
Is he just not as good as expected or still learning college ball?
Backup QB for a substantial portion of the year.
They were throwing to somebody...
They were also 16th in the country in rushing and he was 2nd on the team in receiving while scoring 12 TDs. And yes his numbers did fall without Franklin.
The stats I was looking at must have been last year. Doggone Missouri athletics site.
what the hell clemson
7-0 Mizzou in the first.
7-7 in the first.
Never seen a kick hit the apex of the post before. Truly impressive
It's 14-7 Mizzou, if anyone wants to know.
I am thinking this thread is empty. Fox gets the raw end of the deal when going against ESPN at the same time. Add to it that OSU is playing and well- we have crickets in here
Yeah I agree. I think this is a good game though, I'm really pulling for OK St.
Yep. Also, this feels like your typical Big 12 matchup because Mizzou was in that conference until 2 years ago. It doesn't really feel special.
I didn't even know there was another bowl game on tonight
Anyone else think this season montage, now from both Fox and espn, with hall's double birds is a bit...I don't know, sending the wrong message. Every other bit was positive, or coach news.
Agreed. Edfie George's comment at the end of the fox show that his favorite "best moment" was the OSU player giving the Michigan Fans the "number one sign" was completely classless. What an Ass.
The "there's something else to watch during half time of the Orange Bowl" Bowl.
There are two games being played tonight?
It's strange to watch one game and not have the cutback to another game to see highlights.
Two high-level games, no reference that I've noticed to either by the networks. As if each were existing in a vaccum. Makes me realize how ubiquitious ABC/ESPN/ESPN2/ESPNfamily games are. They always have so many cut ins to games on their network (which I enjoy until I think they are missing the beginning of a play...when I start to curse at the TV). This evening illustrates to me how keen they are on cross-promoting vs how keen they are on keeping me informed. Totally understand, just feeling a bit of realiztion.
Go Tigers! (Clemson....no dog in this fight)
You never realized before how espn never mentions at all any games not in their family? World wide leader only if they are running the show
Am I the only one who thinks Mauk has been better than Franklin tonight? Earlier in the game he drove them down the field twice, whereas Franklin has thrown an INT and been involved in two fumbles.
These refs are making the Big Ten look even worse.
Two amazing games tonight. Bravo!
What a way to win the game.
Or lose the game.
Eerily similar to their Oklahoma game.
Big country ?
Was was the over/under for the 4th quarter? We are at 41
for OK state fans, those are two very painful losses in a row.
