National rivalry: Notre Dame vs. Purdue.
Please look good Notre Dame, if you struggle the meltdown here will go to defcon 4.
hey we play for a crappy old club the Shillelagh .
And Purdue is in the lead.
Defcon 4 reached.
they're either too tired that they blow assignment or missed play call or the personnel on the field is not ideal to defend certain formations/players that offense keep taking advantage of it.
These are the two big reasons why Nick Saban hates facing uptempo no huddle offense. He is a control freak and facing this type of offense makes him feel powerless.
Cal showing some fight in the Ohio state game. Not much defense from either side.
Holy cats, from that arial view it looks like it is 2/3 Ohio fans. Also looks 90 points will be scored - no defense.
Cal has been awful lately...plus I think the red bleeds into the blue on the screen exaggerating it.
They sent Musberger and Herbstreit to West Lafayette? Dafuq?
Huge national rivalry bro.
OSU looks simlar to last year. I think they'll win but the game will end something like 52-31. Also psu losing 21-10 to ucf at half. Man does this conference still SUCK.
It's the only merciful thing to do.
Ah, so fr not so much. ND only 27 yards of offense through 1 quarter
Big Ten has already had a rough day, but if OSU were to get upset that might take some of the sour taste out of my mouth from the game today.
Yes the BIg 10 is one big tire fire, so let it envelop them all. There is a real chance Washintgon, Az State, and UCF all win today. I can't see OSU losing to Cal - if it was one of the top 6 teams in the Pac 12 I would say yes but Cal is sucky and has a freshman QB. But hey anything is possible...its the Big 10.
You can't really tell that... I mean they are only playing a Big 10 opponent.
Three TDs in three possessions to start the second half.
holding OSU to less than 50 points.
Maybe you meant 50 in the first half. Cal still has a chance....
Musbereger on ND playing UM "they were pummeled"
Is over, fellas. Cal ain't gonna be able to keep up with the onslaught of points OSU is laying on them.
Last week he kept insisting Michigan Stadium was "our [Notre Dame's] house," which I found to be logically unsound.
The Texas defense held Ole Miss to 75 yards and a TD on their first possession. We'll see if GERG's defensive can continue at this level.
Lol. Made me literally laugh out loud.
the ball on ND'S defense. ND not playing well would definatly raise the panic meter after today's performance.
I am going to post this is in response to every negative nancy post
the other posts I have made today, I actually been one of the people trying to get people back off the ledge. Doesn't change the fact that if ND doesn't look good against Purdue that will raise some eyebrows.
it was a hangover and the transitive property only works in mathematics and sometimes it doesn't even apply in that arena.
Watching Auburn/Miss St. game. As I watch it I am completely enamored by Gus Malzahn and his offense at Auburn. When he gets a few more recruits(although most of them are his anyways) to compliment what he wants to do they are gonna be scary. I think they'll compete for the SEC next year and beyond.
Notre Dame might be bad. Day gets worse. Ugh. Hahha
TD PURDUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BOILER UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Woo Hoo. Boilermakers.
Purdue looking good! Definitely raises the panic meter!
(just testing you commitment level)
Glad we don't play Purdue this year!!
/s may be needed on the blog right now
Oh look, notre dame is losing to their national rival purdue.
Do we want Notre dame to win or lose this game?
I can only root for the Irish in one game: against USC. I understand your point, it's the rational one, but... it's Notre Dame. I love watching them lose.
That is how you sack a QB
Purdue blitzed, rushing 5 total. Rees had no time to throw, gets sacked.
I think I'll go throw up now.
