It's back! Thursday night open thread! A lot of good games on tonight!
further adventures in Jed York being unsuited for his position
The SEC slurp fest is on!
Impressive start for the Aggies
I always root for the underdog, when it comes to SEC playing SEC. I want them to all knock each other out of the playoff!
But then it will be "but look at that strength of schedule! Toughest conference evar!"
If A&M ever finds a defense look out.
They do realize manziel isn't playing tonight right? Jesus let it go he isn't playing
I understand the feeling of 'stop talking about him', but I also remember how nice it was to hear announcers talk about Denard for every game for two seasons after he graduated.
At a restaurant and espn has some otl looking deal on.
Kenny Hill is very impressive so far.
Oh well, didn't see it was changed to an open thread.
We'll keep it under 25 promise.
Only 30 minutes till I can change this slurp fest off, and turn it to BTN.
That's a seriously intense sun angle they are playing in. What a weird time for a game.
Probably in the minority here but I love these big time conference openers. Or maybe because it's actually a very good matchup and not another Va. tech v's Louisiana Methodist Tech State snoozer.
I wish the Big Ten would play conference games early! Leave the cupcakes for November, like the SEC does. Then you heal up and recover from early season defeats.
Sparty week 1 please
That's part of the reason I love the ND rivalry so much. It's a great early season gauge of where the team is at. The games are almost always close and it's better than playing a terrible team four weeks in a row.
It actually isn't though. Obviously we've spanked them lately and then fallen apart down the stretch, but even historically this game hasn't been an indicator of the season's success.
The series is nice but I think over the last seven or eight years we've definitely proved that the game doesn't mean much in the grand scheme if the season. We've beaten them plenty these last 10 years or so but the program hasn't exactly been a powerhouse.
Yes though playing ND is better than playing Baby Seal U even if it is not the greatest indicator of how our season will progress.
Edit: nicely said Wichita.
Jessie Palmer must get $1 every time he say Johnny Football.
I was so bitter about not being able to watch this game until I did a program search, found SEC Network and realized that I have the channel.
Still don't have Pac-12 Network or the Fox College Sports networks, though. I wish I could choose what I want on my cable package.
SEC network not in HD on Time Warner apparently...what's the point of having a network?
...should be near BTN.
B1G is 1333 for me, I've got all the soccer channels and YES network, can't find the SEC...frustrating...
I hate Time Warner. Can't wait to get AT&T when it's offered in my area.
What a pass
Great pass, while getting hit!
I love Sumlin's offense because it is so fun to watch.
Now that is a hole to run through, god i miss that.
This town aint.. but probably is big enough for the two of us, Tex.
just referred to guys trying to make NFL rosters this weekend as "scrubs". What a dick
He don't want no scrubs.
Well, not really a storm anymore - actually, it was a really nice day.
When I get home, I plan to switch to something else, but for the time being, we're half-listening to the Minnesota / E. Illinois game as we wait for people to call in their findings in the field. It's not a bad slate for an opening Thursday really, and as I am off tomorrow, I have plenty of entertainment late into the night.
"It's easy to find a taller, 6' 5'' receiver down the field. He's basically a more athletic, faster tight end."
Let's hope our OL gels like A&M's
I can't stand that windbag. What's the name of the idiot along side him?
I think Jesse Palmer.
Jesse Palmer. Another ear dagger. Where's the next Keith Jackson when you need him?
Muss and Fuss still going strong
Doesn't the SEC network have a Beth Mowans?
Ouch. Blown coverage
The amount of sandstorm being played is just baffling. Pretty entertaining game otherwise though.
Espns involvement with the sec network is going to be nauseating
This is starting to remind me of the game last night. No one can cover worth a damn and it makes the offenses look amazing. Except since it's SEC it's good football!
