"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
Noon game open thread
Don't forget purdue-wisconsin on btn. This has got to be the best slate of noon games so far.
Yessss...sitting in sweatpants on the couch all by myself at noon for the first time this year. And I'm thrilled about it.
I was just asking the wife if there was some pumpkin fest that they might want to go to.........corn maize? somethin'!
An amazing feeling.
Plus my two week old son on my chest. Should make for a great day.
Same...but 3 week old dressed up in his game day gear. Pizza and Octoberfest.
Ive had a busy fall but I finally get a lazy Saturday all about football (and playofff baseball).
I'm out of popcorn
Good games at noon? How did this happen? Should be a good day.
Is it me, or is the Gameday crowd booing every time Desmond Howard speaks? Any particular reason that they'd be doing that?
He burned the Irish pretty good a few years back.
That 4th down play will live forever. I was in the stands for it too.
It's just the Michigan thing. Also, it certainly doesn't help that Desmond picked Miami to beat Notre Dame last weekend - don't know what he was thinking with that one.
Oklahoma over Texas
Iowa over Staee
NW over Minnesota
K-State over I-State
Purdue over Wisconsin
In case people weren't aware (as I wasn't), Louisville is losing to Pitt 14-7. That game is already in the second quarter. Is Louisville supposed to be good this year? I know they are undefeated, but how much of it is the product of the schedule?
They're in the Big East. Hopefully that answers your question.
Let's be honest, can we make that joke this year?
The Big Ten would likely go 8-0 against the Big East head-to-head. Would anyone be picking the BE in a matchup of Rutgers/Louisville/Cincinnati against Ohio/Michigan/Nebraska? Pitt/Syracuse/UConn wouldn't be favored against State/NU/Wisconsin. A matchup of IU/Illinois against anyone doesn't inspire confidence, but neither does USF/Temple.
I'm taking Michigan to cover over Purdue at noon and then cover v Illinois at 3:30
/one week behind secondary to honeymoon
and here we go.
Through that exact same weather at MSU vs M the past two times there. Awful.
Lets go Iowa!
Wow. Was he throwing to sparty. That was slow motion.
Northwestern already up 7-0. Minnesota is still not good. Also, does anyone know why the Minnesota helmets have Ski-U-Mah written on the back of them?
...gopher cheer. The rock, chalk, jayhawk of mosquito country.
Lee Corso: "NOT SO FAST! I choose #6 Kansas State to beat unranked Iowa State"
Kirk Herbstreit: "Blowout or a close one?"
Lee Corso: "..upset!!"
Kirk just nodded in agreement. It might be because he wasn't paying attention, or he might have just wanted to move on. It was odd either way.
Great start to the game for Vandenberg!!!!!!
Purdue also goes up 7-0 and Vanderberg makes up for that near pick by throwing an actual pick.
TD Purdue. I'd love to see them a second time.
Did I just see gholston "eating"?
He always does it. This was a common discussion last year but Michigan didn't invent it.
MSU jsut shoved the ball down their throat.
Defense optional in South Bend
No one is playing in South Bend right now. Did I miss the joke somewhere?
I meant West Lafayette. Weird brain fart... Must've been on my mind after gameday.
Wisky comes right down the field and ties it at 7. This game might be enjoyable. Minny had a chance to tie, but the QB couldn't lead his receiver enough. 7-3 NW
Does anyone have experience with the firstrowsports desktop/HD app? I'm hesitant to dl it since I still feel like its a shady site, but the thought of better streams is enticing.
Is this for Mac?
It might be new, I just noticed it today. Its a stand alone program for PCs. I might try installing it on an older computer and report back on how it is.
Update - Its completely worthless, dont bother.
There's no way in hell I would ever install something from that site. I love firstrowsports but it's shady as all hell, don't install it!
Two weeks ago I was driving back home from Des Moines to my house in SE Iowa. The Hawkeyes had just spanked Minnesota, and MSU was in the process of losing to OSU. Famed former Hawkeye radio announcer Jim Zabel (think Bob Ufer-level) was trolling MSU, and guaranteed that Iowa would beat MSU.
Dominic Alvis, d-lineman for Iowa, is my wife's colleague's nephew.
Go Hawks!!! GO BLUE!!!!!!!!
or be able to do anything on offense.
Alvis just stuffed the MSU QB on that stupid option.
