Just getting it set up. No, it doesn't make the next 8 hours go any faster. But here's hoping it's a short third of a day.
Early Games Open Thread
Go toledo! that is the game i'm watching.
Punch it in!
Just making sure there's somebody else pulling for Toledo like I am!
Is Herbstreit allowed to be near children?
I think I just saw Lloyd Brady in the front row
Corso and that Heisman pose is funny
Let's go Centra; Michigan, beatthe SEC!
Fuckin' Blue in the process. Holy Toledo--go Rockets. EOE
i heard the situation is at the michigan state game.... ha.
Oregon state punting FAIL.
Oregon St. punter just firmly planted himself to the #1 spot on Sportscenter's not top ten plays for next week.
Ugh... why do underdogs punt on 4th and 3 from the 35?
That was one of the stupidest things I have ever seen. They should have just gone for it.
Toledo just blocked a punt. 1st and goal on the 1!
they are the favorites...
MSU (not that MSU) is a 5.5 point favorite, last I saw. On the road in the SEC that's a pretty big line. Pretty much everyone is picking MSU in that one.
Of course Auburn is making everyone look silly at the moment.
Yeah, you missed the fact that Auburn has freshmen starting all over the place, including on the offensive line.
I don't think it will be by that much, but I really doubt Penn St. ever feels like they are in the game. I just don't think PSU has a shot at being elite again until Joe Pa steps down.
Toledo looks pretty decent. Eric Page is the real deal. 2 point conversion too!!!
Central/Kentucky tied at 3 with about 5 minutes to go in the 1st. For those who havent followed CMU at all making a field goal is huge like Michigan making a field goal huge. We were awful in kicking
Edit: Pam Ward is calling this game btw, i need a drink already.
HAha toledo scores AND goes for 2 AND gets it...8-7 Rockets!
I was really surprised to see the 2 point conversion attempt.
Toledo going all Lane Kiffin on OSU
Look at the cajones on the toledo squad, going for two right off the bat!
Nice crowd sparty....the national spartys still cant get a full stadium....HA
I think that ref that called the facemasking penalty on toledo was paid off before the game in tattoos.
These refs are handing the game to OSU.
Jesus, toledo is getting absolutely jobbed by the refs on this drive.
Every time Toledo makes a big play, they get stupid penalties afterwards. 30 free yards for OSU on this drive alone.
Wisconsin is getting manhandled upfront, which is shocking
TOUCHDOWN Central!!!! 10-3 with 1;19 remaining in the 1st. MAC looking good early in these games.
LOL! Long run after horrible FG try by Ohio.
Let's go rockets!!
66 yard touchdown by Toledo. They fake the two point conversion and get the extra point instead.
lets go toledo
Worse than ours?
Wow, now Im seeing why everyone is so high on Toledo. They have athletes/speed all over the field.
Conspicuously absent: vs ND: 22-15-1.
I see a screen pass to Vincent Smith for a TD in our future!!!!!!!!!!!
looks like Ohio needs to start getting mr miller warmed up..because Joey B isn't doing squat right now..
I really hope MSU is ashamed that the situation is on their sidelines.
Toledo looks good right now - OSU might be in more trouble than many thought at the start of the year.
MSU looks profoundly bleh against the fghting Howard Schnellenbergers, but whatever. Should be interesting to see them next week against 0-2 ND.
Wiscy looks okay against Oregon St, but I still feel like they are missing enough players on defense that they'll lose a couple games this year. Wilson looks fine at QB, but Wiscy doesn't know how to use him properly within their normal offense, and they don't seem poised to give him free reign.
but their OL looks much better than they did last week. FAU is running right at them, which plays to MSU's strengths, so their D looks much better as well
See, I agree the defense looks better, but I'm not sold on the OL from a run-blocking sense. Bell and Baker look okay, but outside of Bell's 20-yard scamper they are averaging about 5 yards a pop against one of the worst defensive teams they'll see this year. And the funny thing with MSU is that they have some of the better WRs in the league - they should be gunning it around way more than they tend to. I think that is a Dantonio thing about ball control, but they terrify me as a passing team; as a running team, I feel like they are beatable.
