Screen blown the fuck up!
things go poorly
Screen blown the fuck up!
I kinda feel bad for Northwestern. I wanted to see them do well (except against us, of course), but they seem to be slowly imploding like a flan in a cupboard.
looks vastly improved to me. Quick to the FB.
UCF - which knocked off Louisville last week and beat PSU on road - is up 38-10 on UConn at half. It is funny we actually share a lot of common opponents - they beat Akron 38-7. The only smudge on the schedule is 3 point loss to South Carolina. This is a team that can now go 11-1 with a quite simple schedule the rest of the way - should be a BCS bowl team. A very good coaching job there by O'Leary. By the way after that game Louisville coach Strong said "the best team lost" - douche. At this point UCF probably would be the 2nd best team in the Big 10 lol. My lol is a nervous chuckle, not outright laughter.
Do people actually laugh out loud when they type LOL?
I always do. You don't?
I don't us LOL in texts or online. I only ask because I see it all the time and I see people texting all the time and they are rarely laughing out loud. Also, I am not tryig to be a dick, I am honestly curious.
Actually this exchange was making me LOL but only in my head. I rarely outwardly laugh as I am a very sour man. ;) p.s. I thought your comment was being facetious rather than a serious question. If its serious than no, usually I will LOL to someone's funny comment but rarely does anything I say make myself LOL.
I only laugh out loud when other people type 'LOL', unless they are teenaged girls.
I liked the 'nervous chuckle' point though.
Northwestern still is not quite at the 4 yards per snap mark.
Of course, in Big Ten fashion, Iowa isn't exactly wowing anyone - indeed, at 4.08 yards per snap, the is literally less than 0.20 yards per snap difference between these teams.
If you looked at the box score for this game and didn't know the score, you wouldn't think Iowa was up even 10-0. Big Ten indeed.
Minn thus far with more first down, more yardage (by 50ish), almost 6 yards a rush, and 6 minutes more of possession. Nebraska also has zero penalties - random stat. All this without future "Tebow" Leidner doing much. ;)
Vitale is having a nice game for NW.
Nebraska can't tackle anyone
I am betting we are going to see Nebraska in TWIS. Anyone want to take the action?
Let's keep in mind this is Martinez's first action in well over a month. And a road game - and just about every Big 10 team goes down about 2 notches on the road. Which is why I feel more confident about the Neb game than MSU or NW.
I'm far more concerned with Iowa than NW.
Go Minny! Hey, looks like Minn has a 2 Qb system just like NW - can play anyone and put up points...
that was Nelson, the other QB. But whatever ... go gophers!
is doing a whale of a job today. 4th and 10 from the 33 got them a TD, now they line Nelson up outside and motion him under center for a QB sneak TD.
creative offensive calls for Minny ! C'mon gophers !
So is Kill actually coaching them during the week, or is the interim guy doing everything?
I often wonder what coaching is.
Does anyone else miss seeing dirty/muddy uniforms?
Still blows my mind we almoast lost to Connecticut. They are a truly terrible team.
They had about 200 yards of total offense. Gifting a team turnovers inside your 30 multiple times will make everyone look good.
Wow. Go out to run some errands and NW has tied it up, Minny is building a lead and Vanderbilt somehow put up 17 unamswered.
How does Michigan usually do when you go run errands? You might just have some special powers there ...
Nebraska's defense is a bad defense.
Minny rolling now.
I tihnk Taylor Martinez' Nebraska career is about to end. Their offense was rolling with him out.
Anyone else find it distasteful how he behaves after the other team misses a field goal? He pulled the same routine against us last year after a personal foul out of bounds.
celebrating in tennis when the other player double faults.
In regard to the missed fg, no. Is his not supposed to celebrate something positive that happened for his team? Is he not supposed to be happy for his team?
He likes to go berserk and humiliate his players when something goes wrong. But I guess it's justified because something negative happened for his team? Maybe it's just a matter of preference, but I like a little restraint until the game is over. I also think there's a difference between pumping your players up and showing up the other team.
What does Pat Fitzgerald celebrating with his guys have to do with Brian Kelly yelling at his own defensive guys? Your arugment makes no sense. Showing up the other team? Every coach in the country is clapping if the other team misses a go ahead fg in the 4th quarter.
I didn't see what Fitzgerald did this time, but if it's comparable to his celebrating against us last season, it's not just clapping. Being happy and celebratory to some extent seems fine and classy. Jumping up and down cheering like a maniac? That seems like something that should be reserved for fans.
I don't like watching the guy becasue I think he is douche but I am not going to say he can't celebrate because I don't like the way it looks while not caring at all when coaches I like do very similar things. I think people are confusing the idea of I don't like the way Fitzgerald celebrates with I don't like Fitzgerald.
I don't think a coach's reaction is black and white, especially with TV cameras on them at all times. It is not as straightforward as something positive happens, coach celebrates, something bad happens, coach throws a tantrum. I find Brian Kelly's reaction to negative things to be the mirror image of Pat Fitzgerald's reaction when something good happens. Like I said, it's just my preference, and I respect your opinion.
don't see what's not to like with Pat Fitzgerald. Is a coach not supposed to be pleased when something positive happens for his team?
Clean program, way more successful than in the past, passionate coach, PLAYER'S coach, and on and on. I like Fitzgerald...way more deserving that some of the other douches out there IMO.
His completely disproportionate celebrations aside, I think he is a really great coach. All things considered, he runs a great program.
I think Clarkie from Canada's gif below in this thread sums up my distaste with Pat Fitzgerald in this very limited context.
ESPN announcers seem to forget that there's an entire Q of football left in Minneapolis. A bit too early for the "if they can't be Minny on the road..." talk.
Well they did say if. And Minnesota doesn't exactly have a power house offense, and Nebraska is letting them drive down the field with Nelson.
Interesting non call on the out of bounds hit.
Somewhere, right now Pat Narduzzi is laughing maniacally.
Taylor Martinez just got killed.
The announcers really wanted it to be targeting, but I just didn't see it.
The guy led with his hands.
It was helmet on helmet, was absolutely a missed call, not that it mattered.
Helmet on helmet doesn't equal targeting in the rule book.
You have to launch off your feet, crouch and move upwards, lead with your head, or lower the head.
I didn't see any of those things happen. I've see plays like that called this season, but I didn't find them to be good calls
Michigan should be able to PA Nebraska to death.
Oh man! Here we go. Come on, Iowa. Make this damned kick. An 0-4 NW team puts them out of the race. Hopefully Nebraska loses to MN and it will likely be between MSU and M.
Wow that game is almost over already?
Long kick coming for Iowa.
