Penn St vs UCF! Kind of nice having a game start at 8:30 don't have to listen to gameday!
MOD EDIT - Yeah, we need to be a little more specific on gamedays. - LSA
Is Kenny Mayne drunk?
If he is, then he must always be drunk
Something to watch at halftime. United still playing shit, FWIW.
CR7 is not walking through that door.
Nor is SAF, who was a much bigger loss.
Matt Leinart just said Connor Cook is a Heisman contender on FS1. MSU is good, but if Cook even receives Heisman votes at the end of the year I will eat my laptop
Game managers don't win Heismans
Yeah they played Jack State. Wait until they play ANYONE else before dusting off the crown
Will live football 24 hrs a day be far behind?
I wonder when the NFL will go to 4 slots on sundays instead or 3, or at least scattered starts...
Imagine 11 am starts on the east, 8 pm starts on the west coast...
They will do it eventually (maybe not that extreme, but...)
We'll see if PSU has enough talent around him to make it matter this year
I've seen a couple plays that should have been int, he's made a couple lucky throws... I love UCF zone blitzes they are consistently getting pressure on those
Key to Penn State: Christian Hackenburg. You shut him down you win the game.
It should have been an interception.
But it worked, so /shrug.
Penn State's offensive line looks a lot like ours did last year. Could be a long season for them.
Okay, Hackenberg looks pretty good. But the good thing about him is if you can shut him down, you essentially shut their entire team down.
Penn st bailed out by some questionable calls but still managed to take the lead. 7-0 lions
Except for the Buckeyes I want all Big Ten teams to win today.
The Penn State o-line looks like our circa the MSU game last year
Why on earth do they keep showing Franklin? IMO, he looks like a schiester.
So, Penn State going uptempo and prevent a review of a catch still looks a bit like someone trying to enter a boat race with an ore freighter, but they got the call all the same - it was questionable to me, however, based on the angle they just showed. It definitely looked like it bounced into the receiver's hands.
That Interception could have been far more costly. PSU is getting a little lucky early on.
You like to make open threads...please explain what kind of open thread it is. In this case it's obvious...but in a few hours "open thread" will be a little confusing without clicking.
That's my bad, it was 8:30 in the morning and there was no open thread for this game. I will remember to include more detail next time!!
Football will never grow if this is what they have to look forward to.
IMO, ND should pretty much have exclusivity in playing in Ireland. Play this game in London or Paris. I'd love to see ND/BC in Ireland.
We haven't been good since they started using it...jus sayin
Making pancakes for the kids
Before our sitters show
Watching Michigan beat App State
From the eighty-second row
because we are well suited to defend that. Their rushing game and OL looks bad so far. A team with a good pass D should be able to shut PSU down
Lol Kenny Mayne telling the little Irish kid that their interview is dying
Looks like we found a lineman! Pretty funny.
I usually don't care for him but that was a great interview.
It's days like today I regret cutting cable.

Penn State should have worn blue. UCF's light gold makes it hard to tell the teams apart.
Announcer just said "unbelievable this team isn't ranked in the top 25; they return all of their kickers!"
Hackenberg is going to be scary the next couple years.
Hopefully that will be in the NFL.
UCF is completely neutered by their QB's shortcomings. Hackenberg will be a first rounder whenever he decides to go. He throws effortlessly and accurately. He can also move pretty well and throws on the move nicely.
There are now several instances in this game where UCF has shown us that they are so good at tackling in space that they can, in fact, tackle space. Unfortunately, it's space where no one is more often than not. If "near / missed tackles" (say, for the sake of an admittedly silly argument, "near" means you at least touched the dude) were a stat, UCF would be an early favorite for being the category leader, I would say.
Ficken ... bad memories.
lulz....wtf is Penn St. doing there. Bad play by Hackenburg but Franklin shoulda pooched or drawn up a play for 10 yards.
Some very questionable calls by Penn State.
Penn State's OL is turrible. Just turrible. Hack has to carry the offense.
"Arguably the Michael Jordan of Irish hurling." Need disambiguation.
I kinda want to go watch some Irish Hurling now..
Slight drop off from Bortles to this dude for UCF. Can't throw and PSU knows it, so 9 in the box all day long.
might make us forget about ours. By default we're at least #6 at that position in our division. So Yay!
Hackenberg doing some Stafford things when UCF finally got some pressure on him.
Looked like Denard just throwing it up there
It very much had a Denard to Roundtree or Hemingway feel to it.
Hackenberg is making some pretty dangerous plays when under pressure.
deep bomb got lucky... what was that corner doing?
sweet run D.
big play coming up
The guy who caught that pass was Breshad Perriman, son of former Lions receiver Brett Perriman (who remains possibly the best blocking WR I recall seeing).
A solid Tecmo player as well.
I think if you're UCF, you have to put pressure on Hackenberg in any way possible.
LIke that sack.
Nice job taking advantage of UCF's top cornerback going off the field.
Hack pump-faked the sh-hizzle out of UCF there.
Hackenberg can just flick his wrist and toss a 40 yard bomb. So smooth.
UCF safety should never have gotten in that close, but that was also a good play. UCF definitely seems a bit off so far.
is making the game watchable.
UCF is doing a great job of killing this opportunity in the red zone.
And it doesn't matter. This new UCF QB is really making some plays.
Why the other QB is/was the starter is a mystery.
Why didn't they start this guy?
and Penn State is in for a rough year
UCF doesn't want to go down quietly... Excellent throw and catch for that last TD.
This Penn State offense reminds me of us last year. Crap offensive line with a really talented QB who has to do everything and thus makes some poor decisions trying to do so much sometimes.
ROFL no one wants to win!!
hopefully this turnoverpaloozaa doesn't carry over into our game...
amazing catch Sportscenter Top 10 nominee
I would be happy for a PSU win.
make me dumber with every word
<inserts stick in nose>
No it wouldn't. No you shouldn't. I disagree with that, too (UCF agreed with the announcer on the last one, though).
Announcers bashing the "east" and "west" conference alignment in the B1G. I think its just fine, even if the east appears stronger. You'll never make everyone happy.
The divisions were basically built around Michigan and the rivalries with OSU & MSU.
Exactly. There is no way to maintain traditional rivalries and balance the divisions.
It was smart to underthrow that? If he put the ball on the money that would've been a touchdown.
The color guy keeps saying Hackenberg was smart to underthrow his receiver, who had two steps on the DB and needed to make a circus catch after the DB caught up to the underthrow and tipped the ball.
I was confused by that as well.
stop by and look at a page every day on his way home from his work as an electrician for the Electricity Supply Board.
Amazing catch!!!! I seriously hope Penn State loses.
Why on earth would you want them to lose?!? How does that help Michigan at all?
It isn't always about what it means to your favorite team, sometimes it is just about disliking a particular team. Personally, I dislike Penn State and Nebraska; I didn't want either of them in the B1G and am always happy to see them lose.
Well...there is such a thing as underthrowing intentionally, like, it's done all the time these days. Also, Denard "did it" a few times.
Haha fuck you James Franklin!!! Great throw and catch there and a perfect QB draw for the TD. Bortles who?!
Karma is a bitch, eh Penn State? That catch was similar to what they pulled on us last year. Nice play by that WR.
That catch kind of reminds me of what happened to us last year. Lol. I hate Penn state.
Good game either way.
To fucking awesome with 1 QB change...
What a throw and comeback by UFC.
Love how penn st has a new ginger on the sideline.
They really went down kicking and swinging.
He called it on the QB draw there. Good play...
And all of a sudden it looks like Penn State might actually pull this off
Fuck Penn State. That is all.
Excellent game to start things. Also glad all the pregame got eaten up.
God damn. Fuck that. Go to hell James Franklin.
I still say Penn State is in for a tough year. It was Hackenburg or bust there, and it came pretty close to being a bust
UCF finished ranked 10 last year. "Pretty close to bust" is not bad.
a lot shorter. UCF's flight will be looooooong.
