In tonight's battle of who cares, we have Army v. Rutgers. I'm too lazy to look up the spread, but I have to imagine it's at least a touchdown in favor of Rutgers.
Score with a minute to go in the first half:
Rutgers -10 or -10.5
Yeah, I'm watching it, as well. Great, can't go to half time without a shot at BigTen. Great...
Let's hope that's not the kiss of death.
Dr. Lou who do you pick between New England Patroits against Notre Dame?
Dr Lou: Notre Dame wins easy, Charlie used to coach there and knows all the plays. The QB at ND is really good and should win the Heisman this year.
Why did you subject yourself to that?
Anyways, back to the game. I have a feeling Rutgers could just throw deep on every play. Army can't stop it.
I take that back. Only the QB should throw deep. They almost got away with it with the punter. That seems like a really stupid play call. I'm sure I'd probably loved it if it worked. Probably still would have second guessed it.
"I hate when people talk about something they know nothing about..."
The internet may not be the best place for you.
Was it Dinardo? Because, man, that guy can eat a dick and die.
glad somebody sees Dinardo for what he is, a Michigan hater. He's is an Notre Dame guy and always will be. Don't be surprised when he takes a negative tone with Michigan more often than not.
How else are they going to get Michigan fans to watch that garbage. Big fanbase equals rating.
In regards to the saliva bath Mike Savage is getting:
Saying that Savage won the job as a freshman without enrolling early might not be saying something about Savage. It may be saying something about Rutgers and their QBs.
Touchdown Army. Wooo.
I normally root for Navy in the rivalry game between these two teams, but I'll take a service academy over Jersey trash any day.
I ran one once when I tried a dynasty at Navy in NCAA '07. In real life, if you're passing out a flexbone, it's not a flexbone option. It's basically a version of a single back formation like Ace.
HOLD ON TO THE DAMN BALL!
This is ridiculous. Army defense is playing like this is the most important game of the year and the offense seems content with just giving the ball up.
These Friday nite matchups are pure torture.
Boise vs Fresno wasn't bad. Both teams played horribly, but it was more interesting than this game. Missouri at Nevada wasn't that bad either.
Colorado at Toledo was hilarious.
I think some of those Tuesday nite Sun Belt games were seeping into my brain when I was trying to think of past Friday nite matchups. Also that Thursday nite Missouri/Nebraska game that was a snoooooooozefest until the 4th quarter (at which point I had long given up).
I guess I should have said "Some of these.."
Edit: I will agree with you on CU/Toledo. That was just downright comical.
Not even I bet this game. Thats how lame it is.
I love watching the military academies play, but Friday night lights should be saved for the high school kids. What really sticks out to me is how disciplined these teams are, and I think it is a good lesson for BCS teams to watch how hard these academies play throughout the contest, regardless of the score. The other thing that really sticks out to me is how football really is a release for these young men, since life at the academy is so arduous. I remember talking to an old high school teammate, who a pretty fair OL at my high school in mid-Michigan. After attending his Beast summer camp prior to the beginning of fall classes, he lost so much weight that he had to play LB/FB.
On second thought, I wish that we could have had Army or Navy come in for the opener in 2010, because it would have been a wonderful site to see either the Long Grey Line or the Midshipmen file into the Big House. It certainly would have been more interesting and important for me to see that kind of scene that UConn taking the field.
