Tough loss today, but still some good games tonight. Nothing like watching Kiffin look like an idiot to take the mind off of today's game.
OT: Night game open thread
Kiffin is actually looking pretty good after that first drive.
Boise scores and goes for 2. If you're want to be looked at like a big time program, act like one and don't go for 2 against a MAC school at home.
these are actually solid teams, almost reminds me of this matchup 10ish years ago.
Also: TD stanford, 7-7. No D in this game so far.
Multiple tipped pass completions? Sack-strip in Florida's own end zone turning into a positive run and a face mask penalty? QB run touchdown on a play where whoever was supposed to come out for a play-action pass forgot? Supposed Heisman candidate muffs a punt? Oh, yes, this is definitely a Les Miles gameplan...
is bringing the wood. That D looks pretty good.
Stanford too the 14-7 lead too, that game is starting to settle down.
Northwestern looking a little flat tonight
Fuck football - I'm watching hockey! It's back baby!!!!
Wings are up 1-0 over the Hawks in Chicago. Val Filppula with the goal, deflecting a shot by Franzen.
I think the thread title is broad enough to encompass any thoughts you have on hockey games tonight.
Lol time for a lesson in Les Miles clock management - LSU ball with 3.30 left in the game.
for people who haven't had a chance to witness firsthand how The Hat mismanages late game time...
how do you let 20 sec just burn off when you're going to run a fake anyway. Jeebus Les.
Lesticles just iced his own kicker. Oh wait, that was a trick play.
Never change, Les.
Les is freaking crazy!
LSU is never boring because of Les
Unreal - I sure can't tell if that was a lateral or not. If LSU pulls this one out... wow, just wow.
That's an awfully gutsy call considering that they'll probably end up having to kick a FG anyways.
I don't understand why they ran the ball three plays in a row and essentially eliminated any chance they had of scoring a TD and then took a timeout just to be sure of that.
Looks like I posted too soon. I fully expect some runs down here with no timeouts and 15 seconds left.
wow Les - simply insane.
terrence tolliver is such a beast. damn.
at least florida and alabama have both lost as well - it makes the pain hurt a bit less.
TD LSU. Wow, Les has balls of steel. Or is it a bobble? Oh my...
Another unbelievable ending for the mad hatter. It's amazing that he ends up on the good side of these endings more often than not.
Just one week after luring two extra UT players onto the field with the staged Chinese fire drill, he ices the Florida defense by having his holder throw the ball on a perfect lateral line on the successful fake FG attempt. Immediately after Florida is led to believe they have won during the five minute fake FG review, LSU burns Fla down the middle to the three with 15 seconds left.
Genius. Pure Genius.
Being a LSU fan would be rough on the heart.
Gives Miles credit - he calls whatever play that pops in his head. That said, everyone should have seen that fake coming - this is the mad hatter by the way. A gutsy call, but these crazy plays are going to bite him in the butt at some point.
Miles is 41-4 in night games? Does LSU play all its home games at night?
yeah, almost of all of them. lsu at night is one of the toughest environments in college football.
yeah wings!!! 3-2, raining on the blackhawks banner parade.
but I'll take it.
Osgood wins #397.
Who has a worse defense
I'm sitting here watching that with my housemate, and we're both looking at each other like "what the hell was USC doing on that last drive". Literally just give them yards to get into FG range.
3-1 against USC. Pretty solid. And Lane Kiffin is an idiot. So in the coming years Stanford can make that record even better.
A week after not a single Big Ten road team covered the spread, 4 out of 5 covered today (with three road dog outright wins). Swell timing for us...
Knowing that Vegas usually makes money, so their lines are decent, I would expect road teams covering to be about 50/50 by the end of the year. Also, that 5 point line was way too much, everyone was saying that before the game.
About 22 points too big.
