Noon Starts Open Thread
LOL - now USF is moving the ball. I would not be shocked if the defense for MSU falls apart because of morale.
Set the clip to the Keystone Cops tune.
Turns out MSU isn't the only one whose WR can't catch
C'mon South Florida, all you have to be is the least bad offense on the field in the second half.
I still dont trust Miami to close this out
wow just wow. Calhoun 3 TDs for the year.
LOLZ this is absolutely ridiculous
Insane - another TD for Calhoun
Way to go Staee!
I hate this game so much.
Well that should be the game for State right there. They can cling to an 8 point lead for the rest of the game I'm sure.
Awesome. The defense outscoring the offense yet again. Love it.
if this horrible USF qb can somehow lead his team to a victory, it would be glorious...
4 defensive tds in 2 games and one offensive TD. A defensive end leads the team in touchdowns. Bizarre.
Calhoun for Heisman. Throw him in for 15 plays a game as Tight End. He could be the nation's leading scorer.
So far MSU has 46 yards passing on 2.9 ypa against the team that gave up 53 points to McNeese State
Time to turn on the Buckeye game and hope for a self-destruction. This game is insanely ugly.
Announcers asking if Miami is back. I hope so. Every team that's great outside the SEC is good for football.
I don't think I've ever seen football played like this before. 4 defensive tds in 2 weeks!! With 1 offensive TD
msu should just play their whole defense two ways. at least they can score...
Calhoun really mastering the art of being no where near the QB. Quite the talent.
Keys to beating STAEE: 1. Don't turn the ball over 2. Repeat #1 over and over again
This Sparty team is the exact opposite of our RR teams. Totally unbalanced in the other direction. One of the all time bad offenses in the Big Ten.
Lets hope Bench can get USF going.
Shilique Calhoun is unquestionably the best thing the Spartans have going on offense....oh wait....
If USF would stop imploding when they actually start to get something resembling a drive together, this game might almost be not terrible. Well, maybe that's too generous.
because they play at Oregon this time next year.
Out of bounds and at least 5 yards short of the marker, this new QB is clearly a stud.
Central is losing to New Hampshire.
Yeah, UNH had a pretty long drive they put together too.
Don't be a buzzkill.
Sorry - LOL
Central lost their starting QB and RB to injury in 1st half last week. They are screwed.
They aren't just losing they are getting abused on their home field by an FCS squad. CMU has two offensive possessions with 6 plays and 15 yards, while NH has over 120 yards already. Looks like CMU might have been a lot worse than many of us thought and kind of diminishes what happened last Saturday.
Not really, I mean what more could we have done besides Gardner not throwing those picks? Most of our 2nd string were in by the start of the 4th qtr.
This game feels kind of like Iowa's 6-4 win over Penn State several years back.
My memory of it is foggy but wasn't weather a factor?
Michigan fans game signs is a headline on yahoo sports...
I like that someone dropped the "How do you get a ______ grad off your front porch" joke for Michigan. Unless it's a Northwestern grad, the joke doesn't make any sense
Aaaah the boo birds are out in full force now.
USF almost answered with a turnover.
USF is going to lose because of this basically, they can't take the MSU turnovers and get significant points.
So the Spartans look good. Eh? Right?
Wide open WR drops a pass and CB drops a sure pick.
There's a reason they lost to McNease St
The hit sent his helmet flying. He's down.
Braxton down in the ohio game... not sure if it's his leg or his head or both. Didn't look good either way.
Braxton hit hard and his helmet flew off. He's been down for a while holding his head and possibly his leg.
edit: walked off the field looking shaky and looked to be in a lot of pain when the trainer was messing with his knee.
If he's holding his head it soundsl ike he should be in the dark room.
MSU's punter is excellent (no seriously) - he pins teams inside the 10 constantly.
187 yards of offense for MSU through 3 quarters.
Are they actually doing worst than against Western?
Good Gotham the Mio commercials. If I had some I'd squirt it in my eyes.
Apparently he has been dealing with that. So they will put a brace on it.
Is South Florida even trying to move the ball on offense anymore?
This is one of the worst football games I have ever seen. State should be ashamed of themselves.
And we all thought State vs Western last week was ugly.
End of three quarters and MSU hasn't scored an offensive TD.
They don't have any offensive points unless you count XPs. This is like watching a horrible high school game.
Wow Braxton potential MCL injury. WOw.
State holds and Maxwell still gets a guy in his face and can't complete a pass.
Backing themselves out of FG range.
Is that back up OSU QB the guy who publicly asked why football players should have to go to class last year?
No, that's Cardale Jones or however you spell his name.
Central down 13-0 at home to FCS New Hampshire. I am not appreciate.
Any team which lost their starting QB and RB in the same game will be reeling. Even more so one with MAC level depth.
"Value 3 Feet". Maybe State should aim higher than that?
Unless something miraculous happens in the fourth quarter - like offense in some recognizable form the Bulls - USF loses in part because they cannot capitalize on mistakes, but also consider that they are getting all of 1.88 yards per play when they do have the ball. The Spartans, as bad as it looks, have been managing about twice that.
Amazing to see
Like Halley's comet. Now we can all say we were there when...
Is STAEE actually going to score an offensive TD?!?!?!?
Took over three quarters, against possibly one of the nation's worst FBS teams, but MSU scores a TD on offense.
Hey MSU scored a touchdown. Without their defense this time.
I've always been impressed with Guiton, he has good mobility and is a better passer than Miller.
Anyone else reminded of Bobby Boucher's South Central Louisianna State University Mud Dogs?
If anyone gets the lead against MSU, it might be smart to just punt on 1st down.
USF's WR's are terrible. They're dropped so many passes today
Listening to Spielman call the Buckeyes game is like nails on a chalkboard.
Its just horrible. "OSU's defensive speed" blah blah blah.
Play cupcakes. It's not worth it.
The horrible offense aside, the other thing this game provided us with is that MSU students are too dumb to properly take shelter during a thunderstorm.
Not listening to police officers trying to get you to safety. /facepalm
USF QB 5/23 for 62 yards, 2.7 average .....MSU QBs 12/24 for 94 yards, 3.9 average
Speilman is the worst homer. Holy shit, he gets worse every year.
Looks like MSU is going to win 21-6. Hard to believe it would be 7-6 if not for the defense. Horrible game for the Spartans. I was expecting better today.
