Not the best slate of games, but you never know.
Minnesota-PSU might be decent.
Purdue goes for that coveted first victory against Iowa.
Auburn-Tennessee, FSU-Wake, Mizzou-Kentucky and Texas Tech-KSU are top 25 matchups on right now.
Pulling for Minny
goes for it and QB gets sacked. Ferentz vows to never go for it again.
Minn will beat PSU by double digits.
Iowa's allergies at the 30 yard line could hurt Boilerquest... if Purdue can ever score.
Wait, is the quest for them to get a win or to go winless?
Sweet 4th down call for Minny there. That was open for us all game vs PSU too.
Sigh...another team handling PSU.
That win against the Gophers is looking better and better. When did Minnesota get so good?
Oh probably about the time they hired a coach with a track record of building successful teams and then stuck with him instead of firing him in favor of a middling coach with a career losing record. #f'ingmichiganmannepotism
and made them winners, right?
If you are going to be so ignorant about college football you should not post on a board where it is discussed.
Ball State was far worse than anything RR took on. Like in EMU-bad. If you followed MACtion you'd know this.
game the boilers have the ball but they never score, not a good sign...
Good sign for Boilerquest
Is calling for veteran awareness. Using their huge profits for veterans grants and scholarships and funding and aiding wounded vets is very noble and well deserved and a great use of the schools and ncaa's not profit, non taxed status.
Oh? It's an awareness campaign and 10% of school proceeds on merchandise sales go to a charity while the athletic dept builds $15 million tennis complexes and tutoring centers and ADs have staffs of dozens with total staff salaries in the millions? Ok.
Of course it's basically another way to get you to part with your money. But we have to acknowledge that 1) sports are very important to the average student's college experience and are important to university fundraising and 2) they are very, very costly to run. Fans demand good results, and those usually mean expensive coaching staffs and facilities. Paying tuition for all these guys isn't cheap either.
Most athletic departments actually lose money. If they do make money, it gets flowed back into the athletic programs. It's not like there are shareholders raking in dividends.
Football is self-sustaining. These other sports are not.
Dave Brandon knows that which is why he milking UM football for every dollar. It isn't for the football team, but every other sport save for hockey and men's basketball.
But invoking the flag and veterans to do so is shameful and embarrassing as a way to raise funds for athletics.
Theses schools get over $20,000,000 from the big ten network alone and they have to come up with desperate, shameful, gimmicks like this to get someone to buy a jersey so they can donate less than 10% of the cost to a cause they temporarily adopt.
But here I am bitching on a website instead of doing something useful, so, whatever...
Auburn tenn starting to get interesting?....
Has anyone heard that green is looking to transfer?? Saw some mention of it on a twitter page....he looking at Texas or Ole Miss..... What the hell is going on with this team?!?!?
An Ace Williams sock puppet?
No no....no sock
I want to punch her in the throat.
You want to punch "him."
I feel like their Off strengths match up with Michigan's Def strengths. I'm worried about two things. 1. It's in Iowa City and 2. C.J. Fedorowiscz(sp).
How's that for a subject line?
Anyway, Minny just picked up a 4th down on a pass as the RB, Cobb slid from the left ot the right to pick up someone rushing through a gap. Glenn said that it took 2 years for Cobb to learn his protection responsibilities.
Update: Minnesota scores a TD on the drive to put it 17-7, 9 minutes left in the 2nd Q.
Yeah I heard that too. Hopefully it takes Green a little less time since he was considered one of if not the best backs in the class.
Umm, not Terry Glenn. Wrong Buckeye receiver. Its Joey Galloway.
144 minutes of game time since last TD; had their first redzone possession since Sept. 28th
Vandy up 10-0 over Florida
Beginning of the second quarter, FSU is only beating Wake Forest 35-0.
My favorite sign at Gameday in Tuscaloosa was "We want Ball State".
Awesome INT by Minny about to be called back by an offsides on the D
Hard count and throw the go route. Mealer and DG were amazing at that last year. Glasgow isn't nearly as aware of that detail
That's where the inexperience at OL is hurting us.
wiped away by an offsides call; Penn State is already down 17-7, that was a big penalty to keep the drive alive...
Vandy now up 17-0 with 9min left in the 1st half.
...how I can watch the Michigan game from last night?
Game is being replayed on the big ten network...Monday night I believe.
Monday night replay. I just verified that it's on my DVR schedule since I was 100% sure it was going to be on BTN last night. Boy, was I pissed to find out otherwise.
App State giving Georgia a good game, UGA up 7-6, App State just got an INT. UGA homecoming to boot.
Appalachian State is due.
EDIT: Just noticed App State is 2-7 on the year! I guess it's not a matter of them being a very good FCS team but more so that UGA is just playing crappier than normal.
Just watched Minny give a blitz look and PSU audible a new play and then Minny drop out of the blitz look after the audible. Fake blitz or not, I wish we did that more often.
Eastern scores on the opening drive.
Really like Auburn's offensive playcalling. Solid.
Minny's hurry-up offense it way faster than ours. Just saying.
