"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
Peach* Bowl Open Thread (*Seth approved name for Chick-Fil-A)
Two plays and already a turnover.
And they didn't start with the ball.
Two more plays, TD LSU.
Hey Clemson.... West Virginia just scored again.
I got LSU and 20 points, so pretty sure Clemson is coming back.
Look like they're having Orange Bowl flashbacks.
Clemson is such a fraud 10 win team. They beat a bunch of crap ACC teams plus Auburn and lost to FSU and rival SC. I wish we had their schedule...
Not much different than us this year. They also just beat LSU.
- Clemson wins Peach Bowl
- Clemson gets massively hyped in the off-season
- Clemson starts in the top 10. X player is a heisman candidate
- Clemson starts 4-0
- Clemson gets epically blown out by Wake Forest
Boyd is going to get killed
Dear god if I hear any more ESSSS EEEE SEEEEE hype from ESPN I'm going to gouge my ears out.
ESPN has a financial stake in the success of the ESSEECEE. They aren't going to stop broadcasting their propaganda.
It's why I'm not watching. I hate trying to watch sports while the TV is muted.
That is a gutsy (Clemson) TD drive from an offense that looked terrified about 8 seconds ago
Or does LSU always seem to get a hit in while a Clemson player is on the ground? It looks like they are trying to kill them...literally
Something about the Peach Bowl always seems to get good matchups and fairly highly rated teams for a non-New Year's Day bowl. Maybe it's just because it's always Florida, FSU, LSU, Clemson, and Miami.
Is it possible for your blind side to be both sides? I think Zach Mettenberger needs to ask himself this question about now. The intentional grounding call is just a morose bonus at this point.
LSU always makes games closer than they should be. They barely beat terrible teams like Auburn, Arkansas, hell even Towson kept it close against them.
I really hate that high hit call.
I didn't like it either but LSU is lucky because they could be called for spearing for the way some of those guys in the secondary are attempting to tackle. I know or makes highlight reels, but that's also how you break your neck.
Awwww, it's so cute when you think that true freshmen are game-ready when they come to LSU (or any other DI school).
It's been scientifically proven that signing a EESEEECEEE letter of intent imparts the same effect on player development as two years game experience at a lesser conference.
Mingo looks too skinny to be a NFL defensive end
Is he projected to play d end? I figured he would move to olb much like Woodley
I believe that Kiper and Mcshay have him rated as their 2nd best DE but I could see him moving to OLB in a 3-4
Parden the timing (future opponent), but imagine if Spurrier could have kept Montgomery in state and they had Montgomery & Clowney as bookends.
Blocked Clemson XP
I will say that Boyd threw the best ankle-high pass into coverage for a TD that I have ever seen just a few moments ago.
Also, Clemson has held LSU to under 70 yards of offense to this point in the game, but then, Zach Mettenberger is not Geno Smith and LSU has no Tavon Austin.
Too bad the very next play went for a 57 yard td
Les Miles has won 11 games or more in five of his seven years at LSU. Makes you wonder what his record would have been at Michigan had we hired him in 2007. I know LSU has had a ton of talent but to win that many games is very impressive.
He looks to be in great shape. And Wormley's hair is trending positive. Hopefully we'll get to see all of these young guys on the field in the spring
Chris Bryant looks terribly out of shape though, and Ringer doesn't look too good either. Poole looks OK, but Wormley and Countess look like they could play tomorrow. Too bad they can't.
that I missed the important part: None of them wearing casts, braces, or even bandaids!
Clemson w the ball in their own territory down 8 w ~8 min to go
2 pt try coming up
24-22 LSU w 2:47 to go
2pt try is no good. Pity, after such a beautiful TD toss.
Clemson still has 3 TOs
Terrible play calling there. They could have easily run out the clock just by running it.
Clemson showing some fight. Plenty of time for FG range. I've been impressed with their playcalling tonight, but the OC is going to have to pull out his best on this drive
Timeouts save 40 seconds of running clock regardless of when taken.
Clemson ball on their own 20, 3 TOs left.
(The mad hatter strikes again w clock mgmt)
Its a 19 yarder
That you can run out the clock with a minute if you have 3 timeouts?
4th and a mile conversion. Clemson threw -- suprise! -- to their NFL receiver.
17 yd. Line w 16 seconds
Genius announcer still advising re: TOs
