Tony Pike. All he does is throw touchdowns.
OT: Friday Night College Football Open Thread
WVU really needs to get a drive going here - keep the cinci offense at bay
Is it just me or does WVU look flat tonight. I know it is early but it just seems like the momentum is completely on Cincys side.
EDIT : Spoke too soon
First lost fumble of the year? That's amazing. We'd be close to undefeated as well.
We are undefeated. I am taking the Delaware State philosophy. All we have to do is post the scores and put a w in the win/loss column no matter what the score! By my tally we are undefeated and will be after the next three games!
WVU right back in it
That looks just like the Minor 4th down stop by Illinois.
EDIT: Except for actually scoring a TD
Drive started by Robinson, finished by Brown.
not once but twice? What is that?
Was looking at some websites for some funny stuff and came across this. The picture says it all. There is nothing left to say!
I'd love to see the BCS busted and I love watching WVU lose, but having Cincy choke tonight would make so many folks on Michigan and ND boards reevaluate that it would be funny.
In the end, my hunger for BCS chaos will win out, I think.
So who you think wins the fight tomorrow night? Pacquiao or Cotto? Pacquiao destroyed hatton and I dont really see this one going any different.
If I had to guess I would say Pacquiao
the mighty temple owls are up 7-0 on the Zips of Akron.
What a freaking move!
What a great cutback and then the turf monster jumped up and grabbed him.
The Zips just came back and scored and tied with the extra point.
And meanwhile the Zips tie it up!
Two pretty good games to far.
tied at 7.
Wow. Amazing what a commercial break can do for ratings.
he should have caught that.
what an awful kick.
I wonder if Cincy can get it together after that fumble. The rest of this is headed for the DVR. Early dinner date tonight in Portland.
Kicks will bite you in the ass later on. Trust me.
brian kelly yells at assitant coaches?
really who does that?
Serious lack of family values.
by WVU - nicely done.
Zips got an INT and are almost in the redzone again.
Nice run right up the gut.
beer truck strikes again.
hit a 45 yarder up 10-7 now.
Akron FG. They are now up 10-3 over Temple
get your hands off me-LMAO, wonder if Coach Rod is watching?
You mean you guys arent watching IU play Howard in Hoops on the BTN? I cant believe it.
WVA just took the lead. This should be a fun game all night. I took WVA/Over.
I took Cincy/Over and I am not feeling good about it right now.
like a poorman's Arrelious Benn?
Kelley is still giving his assistants the business!
another receiver looked to be wide open - not that it would matter with the facemask call.
1st and 25 tough spot.
No surprise that there is a review here.
call!!! he clearly lost that ball as he stretched out...
right back with a long run.
td - kinda weird.
Good call. He got the tip across
Wow. How can the refs call that a touchdown? That is crazy.
A very close call, IME, one you can't overturn in favor of a TD. Very hard to see "indisputable video evidence."
If that was originally called a TD, I can definitely see it staying as a TD.
Oh well, exciting game so far.
Cinci fumble becomes Cinci touchdown.
Dear Replay Booth,
Thanks a lot.
Your right. I didn't see him bobble that. That was a bad call. It crossed but he had lost it already.
is totally right about replays - no if only he can get his message to the B10 officials
what do you have to do to become a reply official? heartbeat?
Fog a mirror.
What happened in the Temple game. Their td was taken off the board?
only thing I could think of was maybe the runner stepped out of bounds.
They are back in redzone now.
and they score again, but for real this time - pisspoor tackling
Too much NASCAR talk on ESPN these days, amirite?
Less Nascar more taco references please.
yikes - gotta get rid of the ball kid
for sure that play by play guys are complete whores? Because there's no way that every single one of them has an opinion on NASCAR, yet they all pretend to.
It irks me that NASCAR and CFB have enough audience in common to justify this ESPN pimping. I feel dirty.
Never seen such bad decisions on replay as this year. Do they know what indisputable evidence means. Even Cinci's crowd was shocked at the reversal.
has been the year of terrible replay review.
It's another big review that seems to have helped the undefeated team. We really need to get rid of conference refs and just have NCAA refs.
Nates' UC Dorm Light up = FAIL
14 yard loss one play, then he makes a guy miss. Make up your mind!
about the dorm lit up to read "UC ESPN"...
The ancients needed special mushrooms or wormwood to see patterns in the constellations. Just saying.
If Lou Holtz picks another upset win for ND I will puke.
Better get a bucket.
These days, the phrase "ND upset win" is a little redundant.
will be picking this - but I'm guessing he is gonna pick Stanford over USC if ESPN is hyping up an upset.
wooooo awesomely terrible Big East football commercial.
He steps in front of the line and then throws a pick. All I can think of right now is the South Park police department.
Removed. Sorry. Double post.
Can I just say that Devine is the real deal? Man.
He puts a damper on the whole experience...dude is a real downer.
Nice, he picks ND and the first highlight they cut to is at Michigan.
After listening to Holtz, I just threw up in my mouth a little.
What did you expect, logical discourse? Rationality? Saying "Wannstedt" without an 'h'?
just an awful tackling team - just gave up a 60 yard punt return - 3 or 4 guys should have had the returner.
I didn't see Tate's name on that halftime Heisman prediction list. What the Hell?
drive coming out of the tunnel. Going run heavy
I havnt been able to watch mutch of that Akron Temple game but there must be A LOT of passing. They still have 5 mins left in the 2nd qtr. Temple is up 21 - 17 and have the ball on the 40.
at 8:30 - and I don't think it started on time either.
Oh. I thought it started at the same time. Thanks
Man, that has to be rough on Collaros. Drive all the way down and come out in the redzone. You do what is asked of you to win but man, that would be tough to swallow.
Pike is only playing in the red zone - that just seems kinda weird.
He is the QB equivalant to Chris Carter. All he does is throw touchdowns.
Does anyone care about this stupid fantasy football game the announcers play? Is it that hard to talk about this game? You know, the one we tuned in to watch?
as hell. It's pretty weak. I was thinking the same thing.
getting a nice drive going here - brown takes another bad sack.
drive ends badly - they might be able to pin them deep and change field position -
move by collaros - just avoiding a safety
seems like that was a real quick quarter
Tne Cin. d is turning up the heat. 2 nice defensive series in a row but now they are pinned deep with that great punt.
Needs to step it up now. Perfect time for a pick or sack.
Great catch by 88. That one would count on Sunday too.
is now just playing pitch and catch - WVU needs to prevent a score or this one might be over.
Did they say Brown was out with a concussion? If so this might get ugly.
Looks like he's coming back in. Safety first, folks.
If you averaged those last two passes, they'd both be dead on.
Temple up 35-17 at the half.
D stepped it up - now can their offense answer?
How does that many players not have a clue where the ball is?
back - first down and a crushing block thrown.
Beer-truck just lowered the BOOM!
always has a look on his face like he just smelled shit.
I like this big back for wvu - what a nice change up from the shifty devine.
as much as I like Brian Kelley, and the Cincinatti thing, I have an overwhelming urge to root for WVU, because I keep thinking my grandpa is their head coach.
you set up the run how about some play action?
Oh. That's why he went back in.
nice play by brown.
What can brown do for you?
He made those Cincy defenders look like midgets!
was the andre ware pass - a one hopper off the turf.
3rd and 9 and you run right up the middle? Terrible play calling.
the world was that play call - that sucked.
bill stewart went to the RichRod school of going for it.
/Hur hur hur.
their defense has gotten them stops why not take the points?
I understand they want to win the game but Brown is getting drilled. At some point they have to think about his safety.
It seems like every time I look up Jarrett Brown is running around for his life. Is WVU's o-line really that bad or does Brown just start running around on his own?
and people complain about Rich Rod's play calling. Good thing we dont have good old stewie
Hell of a run by Pead. Tough runner.
Pead has 175 yds on 18 carries. Not a bad stat line.
needs to some how prevent them from scoring here - should have kicked the points.
Oh and maybe they shouldn't have run power football on 3rd and long.
espn is gonna focus on the "tone" of the great weis whale's press conference -
"They need points and need them fast"......thanks captian obvious!
Here comes the proverbial onside kick.
I love the drama.
that every time I look at bill Stewart I laugh?
That bad call could cost them the game. It is not for certain how things would have gone but WVU has to wonder.
nice work by the hands team.
