Obvious post is obvious. Night games. I'm watching Alabama/Tenn before switching over to Iowa/PSU.
In the mean time I'll keep posbanging these threads.
First team to score on Bama in the first quarter this year
Hang a loss on Iowa in this crazy B1G year.
We won, woohoo!!, but we weren't exactly dominating today.
Undergrad school beats MSU, now time for graduate almamater to beat Iowa!
It's like confronting the evil alternate-Kirk.
Has an obsolutely awful defense. What a waste of a great offense to pair it with that garbage
Cheering for Tennessee tonight. I can't stand Bama. And obviously for Penn State.
I'm watching West Virginia getting crushed by KState, because it's hilarious.
If K-State does beat West Virginia they should be favoured in every game the rest of the way. Could be another BCS disaster.
WVU has so much talent on O, but being down 17 with their D being horrific, its almost like the game is already over
K-State absolutely taking it to WVU.
Is getting hot yet?
XP blocked, up 13-3.
0 pts late into the 2nd quarter.
West Virginias offense is great against terrible, Godawful, and nonexistent defenses. Against the Texas Techs, KStates, and other average-to-halfway decent defenses of the Big 12 they can do absolutely nothing. They're not good. They need to fight just to make a bowl game from here on out, lol. Iowa State will give them a fight, Oklahoma State will be a little tougher than Baylor. Kansas is their only other guaranteed win this year.
They have Kansas the last week, and that should be enough to get them to 6-6.
There's no Big 12/WAC bowl matchup, but maybe things will somehow break out so we can get West Virginia/Louisiana Tech in the Beef O'Brady Bowl. We might see both teams go over 100 in that one.
The really amazing thing is that eight days ago people were touting them as MNC contenders and a potential undefeated team.
That was Iowa in the huddle talking about how to make 2nd and 7 into 3rd and 4, I imagine....
Better start scoring points, Mr. Heisman Frontrunner.
K-State destroying WVU 24-0 late Q2...
This is what I'm celebrating with ... $10 for 750mL, but the occasion is right!
Is that beer or juice?
Haha ... Southern Tier Pumking, a pumpkin ale. Widely regarded as the "best" pumpkin ale out there.
I can't find this stuff anywhere. I have never had it and just want to try one. Oh well, looks like its time to start with the whiskey.
WVU returns a kickoff for a TD.
WVU with a kickoff return TD....problem is that the sorry ass gassed D has to come back on the field to get it's tail kicked for about a 5 min 13 play drive.
I hope that Mountaineer D is rested up and ready to go, because they're back up!
Holgerson has to be regretting getting rid of Casteel now. This new DC of his is dog crap.
Their defense wasn't all that good last year. They gave up nearly twice as many points last year (348) as they did in 2010 (176), both with Casteel.
The new DC apparently is not helping, though.
Man I hope Tennessee pull off the upset, or at least keeps it close. I cant stand Bama.
I have to keep reminding myself that this is a Good Thing for Michigan. McGloin with the magic touch.
Based on this cornerback play, I just checked to see if Tony Gibson is coaching at WVU again. I was moderately surprised to discover he's not responsible for this.
give the hawkeyes credit....they got this crowd matching thing down to a science.
In a very un-Penn State fashion, they put together a relatively quick (for them) drive, ending in a TD pass by McGloin to - yes - Jesse James, of all people.
Iowa's driving down the field. If you thought this game would be sterile and dull (State-Iowa like) that is not the case at all so far.
BTN not working. Anyone else w this problem
Iowa misses a 49 yard FG.
The FG. 7-0 Penn State
*edit Beat me too
K State 345, WVU 76.
Give West Virginia's defense credit--next to the Texas game, that's the best first-half performance they've had in a B12 conference game. And only 9.1 yards per play. It's a big step forward from last week.
This is a big reason why I never drank the Geno Smith KoolAid. The defenses in the big 12 are horrendous. He's a good qb but against even a competent unit he has struggled.
Most of the Geno Smith koolade this year was based on performances against C-USA and FCS opponents. And Baylor.
I don't think all the defenses in the Big 12 are that bad--K State's pretty good, Oklahoma's #1 in the country in FEI defensive efficiency. It's just that WVU started their schedule with the worst* (Baylor) and probably the third worst (Texas). It's all uphill from here until they play Kansas.
*ED.-Well, not counting West Virginia itself. What was I thinking?
14-0 Penn State. The Penn State offensive line has been giving McGloin hours to throw on several plays. Iowa is not getting penetration, and as a result, WRs for the Nittany Lions are gashing the Hawkeyes' defense.
Iowa has only 15 yards of rushing right now, and 46 yards of passing. They are going nowhere slowly with this offensive game plan.
Whoa fan on the field ... right in the middle of a play in the Miami/FSU - he had a better chance of making the tackle than the Miami defender lol
Some idiot ran on the field right in the middle of the play in the FSU/Miami game. Ballsy
Iowa linemen dropping like flies.
...and Geno Smith throws an INT to start the 2nd half - stick a fork in 'em...
Fun Fact: Iowa's team bus was supposed to go over a cliff 2 years ago, but miraculously they were spared. Death has since been harvesting the lot of them one player at a time, ala Final Destination.
In three plays, Iowa has lost two offensive linemen to injuries. Wow.
Bill Belton ran backwards a few yards for a 2nd down, then forward for a few more for a 3rd down, which means that on the next carry, he will electric slide on a draw play.
I know, Big XII and everthing, but K St is about to complete a sweep of Oklahoma, WV, and Texas Tech in pretty convincing fashion. Are they on the same level as Florida/Oregon? Obviously Bama is just waiting to play the next challenger in the BCS Championship Game.
They look legit to me. Well coached and solid on both sides of the ball. They are demolishing WVU 45-7 half way through the 3rd. WVU has 63 yards of total offense to K-State's 386.
They were #3 in FEI coming into this game, and this game won't hurt--they'll probably be #3 again next week (behind Alabama and Florida).
