Wow, Iowa looks really bad.
Mid-Afternoon Games Open Thread
BGSU's punter just ran for a first down on a fake punt...then got hit out of bounds for 15 extra yards. They will probably still win, but lol Florida.
Good lord Iowa
Iowa is eating clock time doing quite a bit of nothing here - rather impressed that they held back and didn't try to convert on 4th and Milwaukee Avenue.
Over/under on games before the Ferentz "Hot Seat" talk starts- GO.
Anyone see that dirty hit on the fake punt?
BGSU has tied Florida, 14-14 with 9:57 left in the 3rd quarter.
That NIU QB looks pretty good running the football. Patient runner that always seems to get a couple extra yards. Except when he gets killed dropping back to pass I suppose.
That's wild. No starts on the front five for NIU before this.
Aaaaaaaand now it shows. Ouch.
I bought a dirt bike on Touhy Ave once.
Don't mean to be picky, but Northern Illinois is NIU and Northern Iowa is UNI. Unless Northern Iowa was also facing 3rd and forever against Wisky and you were refferring to that in which case this was unnecessary.
Looks very winnable. Thats all.
Knows all about Ferentz's Debordianism
3 catches for 30 yards....he is probably having 2nd thoughts of staying home! So glad I didn't go down and watch that non-sense. 1 hour and 54 mins to go.......
It's hard work to score one touchdown at home against William & Mary in order to win. Clearly, Randy Edsall is no longer on the hot seat after winning his opening game.
BGSU just had a 10-yard punt...from their own 10.
I knew O'Brien was a decent qb and Ball was gonna take a step back from last year, but I didn't think O'Brien would be better than ball to start the year.
Against some crap team, then does ok in the Big Ten?
People make way too many assumptions over 1st game performances.
Yeah, this and a directional Dakota school defeating Minnesota are the classic signals that football has begun.
The vaunted BGSU defense keeps Florida from gaining a first down, 17-14 Gators.
Ahh. I missed college football, and particularly the cougar parade of sideline reporters.
He missed first down too.
Fla kicker got TRUCKED on that KO
Don't want to lose to UNI again, I guess.
UNI's defense re-asserting itself.
BG's run game is surprisingly effective today. This would be a crazy awesome SEC upset moment.
Ferentz elated with a FG.
Those stud dline recruits at Florida are letting bowling greens backups run all over them, lol. First down after first down.
Granted, it is only one game against a MAC team, but it must comfort Iowa fans that they have a plan should they find themselves facing 3rd and 20 on occasion.
...and with that Iowa FG, 17-12 NIU.
Bowling Green is ripping through the Florida defense right now. Inside the red zone
BG really blew a great chance on 1st down. They need this TD
BG misses another field goal. Damn
With denard and svp earlier? Will they show again?
Okay maybe I'm late to the partybutholy crap Wisconsin. They won't lose but they don't look good.
Think brunettes BGSU 49.
BGSU kicker shanks the field goal badly, he's 0-2 on the day with a bounce off the upright earlier. 17-14 Gators.
Anyone else see that Fla keeps hitting the BG QB just a bit late almost every pass play. Surprised the refs haven't called one yet.
BGSU misses another short field goal. Florida still up by 3. Little guys are not executing well when it matters, except for OHIO.
After watching the OU and BGSU games today, I've come to the conclusion that MAC teams should never attempt field goals.
FUMBLE!!!!! BGSU recovers!
Seeing what I've seen so far. I don't see how we don't win the Big Ten.
Bowling Green recovers a fumble!
FUMBLE! BGSU recovers on Florida's 30 yard line!
I think from here on out bowling green's gonna be going for it on 4th down
Man, Florida is gifting this one right now. They don't even look like they want to win.
Gotta have one.
Looks like Florida has figured out that little draw. I hope BG coaches get tricky.
Northern Iowa? 14 unanswered? Within 5 points? crazy stuff
