First of the season. In the Wake Forest-Presbyterian game, Wake already up seven. This should be an ugly, ugly game.
On the bright side, College Football Season Has Officially Begun!
Uh, shouldn't this be listed as OT?
I can change it. I couldn't remember last year what we did for game threads. Seems like there were so many of them though, I should be able to remember it. FA? Geaux?
I don't think it needed changing. How can college football be off-topic?
meta: Officially ON topic season - This means that only topics relating to Michigan sports and the college itself are considered "on topic." OT will include college sports at large.
When the Baptists and Presbyterians meet up, you can throw the records out the window...
Ive got USC (-21), Minnesota (-1), Marshall (+28.5) and Pitt straight up in a 4 team parlay. What do people think?
Nice little 5 dollar bet - pays out 15-1.
I think USC is going to struggle more than people think and will try to hold off the wolves to keep people healthy and I think OSU is going to try and murder Marshall--"unleashing" the new and improved Terrelle Pryor.
ehh i just thought 21 was a pretty low line for a power like USC and Tressell doesnt really score more than he has to.
Besides theyve got MIami next week, theyll likely not unleash TP until then
Off topic from this game (it is already 21-0 Wake for those not watching...so don't turn it on), but does anyone else think USC is going to get a challenge from Hawaii tonight? Kiffy's first game, away, and while not a June Jones coached team, not the worst WAC team either.
Then again, Hawaii really isn't a June Jones coached team anymore and lacks the offensive power it used to have. Sadly, in my opinion.
FOOTBAW! Bring it on!
Prepare to be "blown away" all season
Glad to have it back
Ill let this guy show my excitement for it just replace hedonism with college football
Is that Ron Zook?
HELL YES! i am so glad its football season. I have been dying with nothing but a 12 game back baseball team (Tigers). What is everyone drinking tonight to celebrate football season's return? I have some ice cold Summer Shandy.
I agree with everything you say here other than the beer selection. That shit is terrible.
And just tuned in for the OSU Marshall game, first commercial? You guessed it! Velveeta and Ro-tel! It's been so long.
Edit: Someone already mentioned it....so, in order to make this worthwhile, I'll give a game perdiction: OSU 42 Marshall 10
Jesus, I just turned on BTN and there was this intro rock song themed on the nuts...it was f*cking ridiculous.
Anyone know anything about that?
Man, you beat me to it.
Holy Jesus that song they played at the beginning of the OSU game was terrrrrible.
Marshall's coach is really named Doc Holliday?
what a great start by marshall...
IU had nice kick off return to the 40 or so. Fired up for the Hoosiers a bit here.
The Under Armour Gamecocks (CLICK CLACK OL BAW COACH!) might have a challenge or two in this game. I forgot Norwood graduated.
make me want to vomit. That is all.
Good God, pick a different word.
"Ohio state, obviously a lot of rabid... intelligent fans..."
Can someone link me a livestream to the OSU game? Stuck at work and the link at ATDHE is broken/needs a password.
SMU's defense looks good. Or the Gamecocks look bad.
Good stuff. We fired up at the JCB and had several posts today including the first officially Booked picks of the season. If you need shit to read, I'd be obliged if you checked it out
Otherwise, enjoy the night. Let's have some fun in this thread.
Sadly, Marshall has already crapped down one leg. They'll probably crap down the other one before this first quarter is over.
That's what I've been watching. Good quality.
is former UCONN OC. First series ended in INT--good sign.
Does anyone know of a live stream?
Saine TD...man this is gonna be a long game ugh
covering the 28.5 points, yeah you probably will not be winning that bet.
There we go Marshall.
Now lets not go 3 and out!
Way to go
Wow, swaths of empty seats in Bloomington, shocker!
OSU's brass section was seriously off-key on that little post-field-goal miss.
so essentially their whole band right? I think they only have brass (plus drums)
What a balloon from Pryor.
A Big Ten Network show hosted by Keith Jackson? I'm in!
please post a link to Pitt/Utah when the game starts...
These Marshall receivers can't catch ANYthing. That's like, 6 dropped passes in a row.
10 play, 85yd touchdown drive by south carolina, 7-0
By Garcia of USC (no, not that USC).
Minnesota is going to be TERRIBLE this year.
