In a previous post about this week's betting lines, I mistakenly made Texas 21-pt. underdogs to Kansas. Uh-huh.
Gameday/Noon Games Open Thread
KU's great turnaround has just begun. We're talking BCS bowls.
Schematic advantage, y'all!
Checked the box score - Kanas has 169 rushing yards on Texas with just under six minutes to go in the half? Does Texas believe in stopping the run, or is the run a protected species that should be allowed to roam free and multiply in the eyes of Manny Diaz?
I would just go with Longhorn fans and let out a resigned sigh and dream of having a good defense.
The schadenfreude from Texas fans would be TWIS hall of fame worthy!
Would also be the end of Mack Brown, in my opinion.
No sails...love the commentary
...and a double post!
BIG TEN FOOTBAWWW!
I like this commercial better with the seals and the fat faces.
10 bucks say Vanderberg goes with a checkdown for 8 yds.
EDIT: Or make a horrible looking back shoulder throw 4yds short.
Oh, with some noted exceptions, first downs are typically a sisyphean task for the Iowa offense...and yet, they will go for this on 4th and 12. Will Hawkeye fans watch between the gaps in their fingers?
His knee just bent sideways an didn't come back. This is bad bad bad. That looks career ending.
Great sportsmanship by the Tennessee players to join the SC players on the field around Lattimore.
Yes, it looked really bad. I hope it doesn't end his career, he has a ton of talent.
Definitely a right knee dislocation. Kids probably done for the season, I don't know about career. The biggest concern is an arterial injury.
Ferentz going for it on 4th and 12?!?!!?!?!
Vandenberg just throwing ducks all day long so far. He looks terrible.
He is done. I hope he can recover, but that was nasty.
Worst looking injury I have seen. Best wishes to him.
Reminded me of the McGahee injury. Poor guy, hope he can recover and go pro after next season.
14-3 NU at the half. Very entertaining.
Sad to hear he got injured again. Didn't see it but sounds nasty. Shame.
It was one of the most gnarly injuries I have seen in a long time
If you're squeamish, don't watch the hit or his emotion being carted off the field. I feel horrible for him. The emotion is palpable even with his head covered by a towel and in his hands.
It was one of the worst things I have ever seen. I had to turn the TV off.
God that sucks. He's done for a while after that. Definitely feel for him.
Feel bad for Lattimore.....such great talent and his legs dont want to seem to work for him. Damn shame......
Never seen both teams come on the field to send off an injured player the way Tenn and South Carolina just did for Lattimore. Let's hope it's not as bad as it looked and he has a full recovery.
Damn! My heart goes out to Lattimore and his family. That was a bad looking injury to his other knee. I feel bad...
Illinois fans rightfully boo a punt deep in Indiana territory down 7 (!!) with less than a minute in the 2nd. Big life, big stage, big ten.
Big life, big stage, big ten
That's pretty good! You best TM that
that lattimore hit turned my stomach.. hope he can come back next year and continue his playing at South Carolina
He plays a down of football again
The block I is so much better than Illinois spelled out. We now return you to your regular programming.
Question on Collegiate injuries:
I don't want to sound insensitive in any way, but something I've started wondering the past couple years. So, a nasty injury happens like what just happened to Marcus Lattimore. Obviously, he's done, we know that, so he probably sees a doctor ASAP, today maybe even, and surgery is scheduled for the very near future. Is this something that the schools pay for (if yes, I'm sure they're insured for it, so not fully "pay") or does the scholarship program and what have you not cover injuries to the student-athletes??
We're provided insurance in co-ed soccer. Why don't you muster some judgment and provide your own logical answer.
The school has to take out insurance policies on their athletes that cover anything related to the sport they play.
Had the displeasure of watching Marcus' injury live. I'm surprised serious injuries like this aren't more common. All it takes is one defender up top and another tackling at the knees. I feel so bad for him, I like Lattimore.
So everyone justifies Oklahoma as being great by their win over Texas... Texas is still ranked after all, but how?? How is Texas still ranked???? We've been asking this question for the last 3/4 weeks! They have 2 losses in the Big 12 fergodsakes!! The big 12 is an atrocious conference! They're losing to Kansas! Yes, that Kansas.. The one coached by Charlie Weiss! With Texas as Oklahoma's best win to date, I have a hard time seeing how Notre Dame doesn't turn them into road kill with their intimidating front seven. ND 35 - Oklahoma - 6.
Its a bit of an eye test. Oklahoma looks like a pretty good team. ND looks like a team that Michigan would've beat if not for Denard's Chernobyl-ing.
But having a mediocre to passable defense in the Big 12 can make you look really really good, because you can sometimes stop the offenses that you're facing. Oklahoma will have no answer for ND's legit defense.
They are eagerly awaiting the second half...
2nd half off to a great start for Iowa.
Angry Iowa Running Back Hating God strikes again.
Don't watch this if injuries make you squeamish, I don't want anyone tossing their cookies all over their computer / iphone / wife / kids.
That gif is pretty graphic...I'm actually glad you're on your ipad.
3.5 million for that Iowa fans.....sad.
The Iowa tire fire continues....21-3. Iowa fans across the state are not happy.
Iowa's punt is blocked. Northwestern ball at the 4, and then naturally, Colter gets another rushing TD. 21-3 Northwestern with minimal effort.
What was the game plan for the Hawkeyes now? I think they said something about the runs and stopping them. Imodium perhaps. It may be more effective than this scheme.
