0-0 with 9 minutes and some change to go in the first quarter, but Iowa State threatening. This might be the first time on a weeknight this month that ESPN has not shown MAC action.

Go, go, go, shit, shit, f-ing incompletion, kick is no good.
I have to sound crass, but the whole "Women's basketball team" tragedy bit sounded really forced. I wish they could just talk about it without sounding like the football was rending their hair over it. I have a hard time believe the womens basketball coach and the fooball players had some kind of deep, emotional bond that leaves them seperated. I'd have really just gone for a tribute piece instead of 10 minutes of "look how sad the football players are".
....a uniform, universal tribute to their lives would have been excellent. It seemed like they were almost trying too hard to be sad in a situation that needed no urging.
I would be surprised if most of the football players had even seen the two coaches in person before. They were undoubtedly sad about the tragedy, but was more of a media creation IMO.
One of my daughters is an MSU grad, another is a student at OSU (not tOSU)--we live in Oklahoma. Last year she worked serving food to the athletes. The football team and men's and women's basketball teams eat together. They are the full scholarship athletes who get the top shelf food. My daughter says the assistant coaches often eat there as well, including men's and women's basketball coaches, but rarely head football coach Mike Gundy, so most of the football players would have at least seen the women's basketball coaches.
OSU has a bye week next week, so their next game is against OU--OSU's biggest game of the year, every year (OU's biggest game is Texas), and of course with both teams as highly ranked as they are, this year's game is especially big, making this game a huge trap game for OSU to start with. Also, OSU has been spotty. They look unstoppable against some teams and mediocre against others. They will have their hands full with OU.
I've got the game on because there's nothing better for me to do until bar time. I have my favorite couch & a slow infusion of alcohol into the bloodstream ... all I can think about is beating Nebraska. I love saturdays.
The way to start a drive after a fumble recovery against the #2 team in the country is NOT a false start penalty. It makes it look like, "Awesome. We got the ball. Now what?"
You know, Virginia Tech played a weeknight game on ESPN last night.
So it hasn't really been that long since ESPN showed a non-MAC weeknight game
I started the thread on it too. I am rusty at non-MAC threads apparently.
What the hell....
CMU vs. Toledo on ESPNU
I have some paint during on my walls this evening. I think I'll watch that instead.
Pick up a 2-inch brush and paint around the trim in my bedroom hallway. I'll follow with the roller.
Only if you agree to help me paint pink stripes in our unborn's room. Yuck. Deal?
I'll bring tape and spacers so the stripes are at least evenly spaced.
Oh, by the way, it's the same shade of pink, just different sheens. Good times.
Did you decide on an alternating eggshell / satin / gloss thing? Vision problems early for this kid?
If I was ever consulted, we would be doing none of that. However, my opinion does not matter. Can you believe it? (/s)
I was handed a swatch of Behr colors and told that these are the ones I should buy, right down to finish and number of cans. The wife is orgnaized like that.
Slowest pick 6 eva!
He could have walked that in....it took ISU literally minutes to figure out what happened.
LSU/Alabama/Arkansas is going to murder everyone on Oklahoma State if OK State makes the title game. This is a disaster--and they're up 10-0.
So, a rather quick, efficient game then....
Oklahoma State isn't close to those teams athletically. LSU's defense would seriously kill Weeden.
Any of those teams would destroy them.
Like a lopsided boxing match really, "OK, go to your corners. When the bell rings, LSU will come out and beat your head in."
This ^^^ is one of my favorite comments ever. Congratulations.
Arkansas is bad. A&M gave them the win (they're really generous), Vandy should have beat them, and Ole Miss (OLE MISS) led most of the way against them.
Oklahoma State up at the half, which ended in a clusterf*ck of fairly obscure rules, such as the half being unable to end on a defensive penalty, but since it was a dead ball, the half CAN end....point being, it's halftime.
I have this game on mute and I'm playing Skyrim, yet I still feel it is terrible. Although the world's slowest runback was cool.
Iowa State is learning that you need to attempt coverage before it is "blown coverage".
Man, the joy in these announcers' voices when ISU does something good is unmistakable. Maybe I'm biased because I'm rooting for Oklahoma State, but I mean, come on.
an upset brewing.
Weeden's Heisman chances should be done after this. Also, I don't really like the idea that someone who is 28 years old, which is OLDER than Aaron Rodgers, can win the Heisman.
won the Heisman who is about the same age as Brandon Weeden so.......
I just turned it on for that TD drive, but this Ok St. team doesn't really play defense. Has that been the case all season?
I don't want a rematch for the championship. Looking more and more likely although maybe Oklahoma moves back into position.
24-24 with 4 mins left. ISU is fired up. Ought to be a great finish.
i think ok st. has been poor defensively - but has been able to offset that with creating turnovers.
also, how good do you have to be defensively when you average 50+ a game?
as i type this - OK St - INT
Why the hell didn't Iowa State call a timeout there? Football coaches are ridiculous.
thats the smell of controversey. I think that field goal was good
The entire football has to pass to the inside of the upright extended. That ball clearly went directly over it.
well than nevermind, but I can't help but think that if OK State loses that, that will be their cop out.
missed the kick - noose on OSU is starting to tighten.
OK St leads the nation in turnover margin - +1.8/game
by comparison - Michigan is #34 - at +0.40
Come on BCS Chaos
