stanford-arizona state (7:30pm/4:30pm),
Late Games Open thread
anyone else watching Oregon @ Cal? Is it too early to start feeling giddy about a Cal upset? Cal just stopped them again after scoring a TD fairly easily. I know too early, but wouldn't that send the BCS into a tizzy. TCU in the championship?!
What's with those uniforms? It's hard to say whose are worse. I half expect to see "Hehateme" on the back of one.
+1 for Hehateme, completely forgot about that.
by default. Cal is closest to Maize and Blue.
I have to say though, Cal's all yellow uniform scheme gives me hope that a full "Maize Out" could work for us.
Night game 2011 anyone?
an eye on a couple teams down here in SEC territory. SC vs FL at 7:15. Lattimore has been very impressive as a freshman and these Cocks, LOLZ (sorry that's my inner 9 year old,) have been pretty on and off with a big win against BAMA followed by a loss to a not very impressive KY. Should be a good one.
was anyone else surprised to see that Florida is ranked? Admittedly I had not looked at the top 25 poll recently and was mildly surprised to see them sitting at #22.
Same record as UofM, similar losses...overall an unremarkable resume. Typical SEC love I guess...
SDSU is keeping it scary close against TCU. Down 14 with the ball and 5 minutes left.
by down 14 I mean down 12. And they just scored! Down 5 now. Hoooo boy!
Very odd game ... after going up 14-0 they went three-and-out a bunch of times (nine punts for the game) before rallying later. They had several pass plays for 30+ yards, which suggests a TCU vulnerability for whoever gets them in a bowl.
what channel is the tcu game on
It's on the college football wastelands of Versus. But better than MTN.
What's weird, I've had Versus available on basic cable since it came into existence. It's never made sense to me that people call it a wasteland. To me, that'd be CBS College Sports. You HAVE to order higher tiers to get that.
Speaking of the game though, TCU converts and the game is over.
Well, Comcast owns Versus so if you have Comcast you automatically get it. Other providers may or may not have it. Yes, CBS College Sports (which used to be CSTV) is much more of a wasteland. If Vs. is a wasteland, CBSC is a radioactive wasteland.
On Charter, Vs. is channel 310. But surprisingly, I get that, ESPN Classic (ch. 301) and ESPNU (ch. 302) with basic cable.
Hardaway 3 3 pointers and a couple FTs, 17-5 good guys, 13:15.
Don't look now, but we are playing a very good San Diego State team next season, that will likely be ranked and giving TCU a run for their money...gulp
Well, there's a chance Hoke will be hired by Minnesota. If he had upset TCU it might have sealed the deal.
I wonder what would have happened if Lloyd could have gotten Brady Hoke hired.
Heh... Lloyd... Brady... funny.
So who are people picking in the USC-Florida game? I'm taking USC. I don't entirely believe in Florida's offensive resurgence. Hasn't it been against terrible teams?
Well, that LSU score and the opening kickoff being returned for a touchdown make me less sure about my pick.
But Florida still has ZERO yards of total offense! ZOMG they suck.
Plus their Time of Possession is terrible! The spread will never work.
I like USC in this game, mostly because of Alshon Jeffrey and Marcus Lattimore. And of course, his brah-ness himself.
This is probably common knowledge, but why did spurrier leave florida?
Resigned and took the Redskins job two weeks later.
He was getting tired of winning 10 games every year and still hearing it from fans that it wasn't good enough. Not realizing they don't have that much golf time in the NFL.
Auburn just lost a player for punching a Georgia player.
And another! TWO defensive linemen have thrown punches and been ejected. Both will miss the first half of the Iron Bowl.
You beat me to it. The SEC... man... 2 ejections for punches... enough said.
Pretty heated... i wonder how many bar fights are going to break out today in Auburn.
Auburn just lost a second player for throwing a punch. I hope that they are both suspended for next week at Alabama.
They'll miss the first half at a minimum.
See FA's post above, out for the first half of the Iron Bowl.
Edit: Redundant, sorry.
Yeah, he beat me to it.
Nick Fairley is not a guy I would want on my team.
Versus can keep showing that front row of Cal chicks all night as far as I'm concerned...
Cal home uni's among the worst out there these days. They are trying to be cool but it just doesn't work for them.
First series Oregon has 4th and 3 from their own 35. Go for it and make it without problem. No fear. Go for it again on 4th and 2 in own territory and don't make it. Amazing
Up 36-18 at half. Hardaway leading scorer still, followed by Morris with 10.
Anyone else super impressed by the job Dan Mullen and Diaz have done at Miss St? It's early in the game, but they have been rock solid all year.
I would take a Zoltan kick to the clockweights to get Manny Diaz at Michigan.
Cal leads Oregon 7-0 and is driving.
Touchdown Threet on the keeper against Stanford. 7-7
Announcers are insinuating that Cal is faking cramps to slow Oregon's offense down. The guy is noticeably sweating through his shirt.
And people say the SEC puts slants on things.
Yeah, those jerseys show sweat like woah. They should check out a new design or material that doesn't show the sweat so much. I would never want my opponents to see that, it would give them a confidence boost.
At first I thought it was fabric design, but looking at them, the guys on the sidelines don't have them and it's not consistent throughout the team
Yeah, I also was unsure at first. I thought, "Why does Cal have Orange on their jerseys?" Then I saw that it was uneven, not a smooth design.
Horrible punt coverage. That kick way out-kicked the coverage, and NO ONE covered the right side.
The Cal D has to be incredibly pissed. They've played lights-out tonight and now they're losing because of the O and special teams.
blocked two on the punt return.
Oregon has the hottest cheerleaders in the UNIVERSE.
And after the punt return, they run the swinging gate-pass to the outside, screen for 2.
8-7 Oregon leads.
Going beast-mode all over Florida's defense. 127 yards, 2 TDs and there's still most of the half to go.
Yep, I'm feeling pretty confident that Florida as a team will not outrush Lattimore at all, let alone by 51 yards. I might finally get over .500 in Pick4!
Brantley is a moron. A ball gets batted up in the pocket and as he's falling down, he catches it instead of batting it down. While I'm rooting against Floriday, I can't take joy from watching something so stupid.
Never thought I'd say that Oregon's uniforms weren't the ugliest on the field.
Florida is losing 22-7. Texas is losing 16-3. I love it.
Woo! Another school sucks at placekicking! Oregon is 0-2 tonight.
Cal's defense pulling them back into the game. Score on a fumble recovery in endzone. 15-13, awaiting point after.
at that stage of the game.
Both Texas and Florida are getting curbstomped tonite. UF, down 29-7, just went for it on 4th & 15 and Brantley was slammed to the turf. Texas is down 26-3 at the half to OK-State.
I love me some national powers sucking it up!
I love that the camera keeps zooming in on the Florida students looking dejected. It's so deserving. They were spoiled to get Tebow right after a national title. They deserve to suffer for a little while.
And Urban Meyer looking like he wants to crawl into a hole and die? Beautiful!
And don't forget that they won two more national titles in basketball recently. They have zero grounds for complaint for, oh, about a decade.
Funny thing too about Florida basketball - since they won those championships, I don't think they've been back to the NCAA tournament. They will probably be back this year, but the drop-off by them after that class with Noah, Horford and Brewer was pretty severe.
On the bright side, they beat OSU during one of each of those titles in basketball and football.
And it looks like they're finally good again.
He was the freshman back-up on the first, but played a lot of wildcat for them. Unless you meant their previous title way back under Spurrier.
Anyone else think that missed Cal FG looked good?
My apologies if this has been posted before, but I have noticed a few times now where a thread started by someone using the mobile app doesn't show up on the mgoboard page, this one being an example.
Because it appears on the front page. I'll whip off an email.
The thread appears on the sidebar, but not on the mgoboard page itself.
That's always been the case, though I don't know why. Brian had said that it was a problem on his end, but we haven't talked about it since.
Garrett Gilbert is getting the crap kicked out of him.
Oregon looks out of sorts now. Funny, I don't think Bill Plaschke will tweet that Cal has figured out LaMichael James, despite the fact he hasn't done much.
So, who is the Cal DC? Does he have a good track record? He's come up with a great gameplan tonight.
Why is this Texas blowout still being televised? I would rather them switch to the Clemson-FSU game since well at least that's a competive game. God forbid if I ask for the USC-Arizona game..
No one is falling for Oregon's QB fake any longer. Oregon is not going to risk Thomas getting hurt this year and repeating a Dennis Dixon type season ending injury. Especially with the backup Costa is out for the year.
Even Oregon's offense has an off-game. Good to know.
Runs like a gazelle.
Is that Tony Zendejas' kid (or nephew) that is kicking for Arizona?
