PSU up 7-0 already.
PSU/Nebraska Afternoon open thread
you mean nebraska
double post. what a newb.
Go Nittany Lions.
you beat me to the punch
Prediction: Northwestern will be too tired to put up much of a game against Penn State after a letdown game like they just had. PSU by four touchdowns.
you mean Nebraska.
Go Penn State! I think they have a good enough offense to exploit Nebraska's below average D. Also I was looking up stats from earlier today and Wisconsin ran for 560 yards today! It is crazy how easy their path to the championship game is.
Uhhhh....Win Penn State. I will be cheering hard core for them. Many despise the program but I look past all of that and root for the current kids playing at the school right NOW. Beat Big Red
Penn State has a fairly decent run defense.
Is this going to be a high scoring game?
Down goes Martinez.
Nebraska or ND for the luckiest team this season? I think it's ND, but you can't deny some of the breaks Nebraska has had. They got to face us with Denard getting hurt; MSU had them beat but their thuggery lost them the game; beat NW by 1 point and squeeked past Wiscy. I think their luck may run out today.
Don't forget the Buckeyes. Purdue had them dead to rights and Sparty may have beaten them if a play hadn't been inadvertently blown dead.
I would say the Irish because of the impliciations of the luck. Nebraska might luck into the B1G championship game (they could conceivably have made a BCS bowl even if they lost to Michigan) and OSU might luck into an eternity of complaining about the NCAA, but ND actually has a chance to play for a National Championship.
They kicked our asses. It's not their fault our staff actual thought that Bellomy was the answer if Denard went down.
Nebraska knocks down PSU's fourth down attempt and our hopes for a Legends division championship.
That doesn't change the fact that Nebraska was lucky as hell to beat Wisconsin, MSU and now PSU, needing blown calls by the referees to win the last two.
I was at the Nebraska/MSU game and MSU got more calls than Nebraska did including the late hit when a Spartan pushed the Husker defender causing the late hit. The bottom line...we controlled our destiny and lost
I remember Deion Barnes. I thought he was gonna come to Michigan.
Why are you asking the same question in two threads?
first was in the wrong thread; didn't realize it was being tracked.
and i find it refreshing to see throwback unis that aren't throwback.
Just messin around.
I think Penn St. will never change their uniforms.
They'll be dragging butt coming to Michigan Stadium next week...
Deon Barnes with a nice sack there.
Ted Roof is going to need to find ways to get guys outside or Martinez will be trying to go around them all day.
That being said, if you're Penn State, never follow up a gift from a bone-headed block by bad pass coverage resulting in a 1st and goal. Penn State's red zone defense is pretty good - they'll get tested in this game, I am sure.
The cranes give Nebraska's stadium a great look.
I know I should pay attention to the PSU/Neb game...but damn I really want to watch Johnny Football against the Bama D
Nebraska's screens were doing some major property damage on that drive with Abdullah.
They talk about Martinez, but Abdullah is the story with this Husker offense. Oh, and that WR Bell.
He is dangerous as hell.
Anyone know what channel PSU-Nebraska is being aired on Comcast in Ann Arbor?
I think aTm gets an upset.
as far as the other game goes, this is clearly not the same Alabama defense we played against.
Saban is pissed.
Florida again shows just how overated they are. Also the ACC coastal division some how looks worse than the leaders division. Everone who is eligible is alive, though only Duke is above 500 overall.
If anyone has ESPNU, Maryland is currently playing Clemson without 4 quarterbacks, their leading rusher, their best player (a WR), and their leading tackler. It isn't going well.
Damn, what a great throw and catch.
Incredible catch by Robinson
Perfect. My annoying Penn State fan friend and I finally agree.
Man I think Gardner would have shredded this Nebraska D.
vs. Penn State and McGloin and then looking at what Gardner can do. Oh what could have been! :(
Damn you, PSU.
Damn it fumble! I'm switching games.
that was a Fitz type fumble
Oh, wow. Zwinak lost the football with Penn State probably on the cusp of another touchdown. Compton falls on it. Cornhusker ball. Oh well, it's early yet....plenty of time to repeat that same drive except for the turnover part.
I don't know if I can stomach another choke job by a Nebraska opponent. It's early I know, but still
He loves Alabama so much.
What happened to Alabama? They have looked horrible the last couple weeks. Although it is pretty funny to see a team go tempo on Saban and watch the refs try really hard to slow it down.
Really don't want anything to do with Texas AM in a possible bowl game.
Vern Lundquist just got tongue tied...
Did he just fumble that to himself and then find an open receiver. Nick Saban is going to murder someone. Literally. Like before halftime.
Tide in some trouble...
Bama is going to have a long afternoon though.
after a sick play by Manziel.
Tubberville has already slapped one of his assistant coaches today.
That is terrible. I can never see Hoke acting like that on the sideline.
Bama to punt..
Narduzzi should be pretty upset that he didn't take the TAMU D-Coordinator job. Pretty good looking football team right now.
I will never forgive Bama if they let ND sneak into the title game against K St.
That said, if they are going to lose, let A&M blow them out at home so we can see Saban's head asplode. Also would lend some credence to the Big XII being as good or better than the SEC. A&M was a good but not great Big XII team. I just feel sorry for the poor team that has to play Bama in their bowl game.
I'm not sure if K State can win out. I see an Oregon vs. ND game more likely if Alabama can't sneak by with a win.
I hope ND gets blown out by a Boston College tire fire tonight to put an end to all that nonsense.
dont understand how Neb gets away with that tight inside toss...you would think it would get blown up.
Why does Dr. Pepper 10 not want half of the buying public to drink its soft drink? Still trying to figure this manjuice thing out.
Would need Oregon to lose for that to happen and that looks highly unlikely. Tex Am led Florida by 10 and LSU by 12 earlier in the year
Remember, Oregon still has the hardest part of it's schedule ahead of them. Could be very difficult to win the Civil War in Corvallis. Plus, Oregon always blows a game somewhere.
Good goal line stand by Penn State.
Penn State is going to gift wrap a TD potentially thanks to that face mask call if Nebraska scores here. If nothing else, we need Nebraska to score one field goal at a time and a little more "hold onto the ball, yes?" sort of offensive philosophy...
Just a field goal...long drive but big stop.
Can anyone help me with a link to the ASU vs USC game? I can't find one and firstrow throws my computer into a melt down. Thanks in advacne to all that may help out.
Did you read the title of the thread?
Yep. Lots of traffic here and I don't think this is thread worthy. God forbid another game is mentioned.
Is it only on the pac12 network?
Yes. I was hoping to maybe find a link like the one Spartan123 puts up for M b-ball games not on the B1G Network but I couldn't find it.
Thank you! Go Devils!
Bama getting destroyed right now...thank god Sumlin didn't come up to the Illini.
Vols now 0-6 in the SEC. The end is near for Dooley.
I really like Manziel. Also Verne needs to retire.
Texas A&M moving the ball with impunity....
Bama is missing tackles and getting blown off the line. Is this really the same team we played?
Texas A&M 21, BAMA 0
So if Bama loses there is no way they can put any 1 loss SEC team in the title game over the other unbeatens right?
Is it just me or is this game 99% commercials?
Can you only place balls on even and half yard lines? That was down to like the 6 inch line.
They marked that short? Wow do the refs want Alabama to win this one.
Am I alive?
...does the wavefunction collapse? Or is he not a conscious observer?
Bama and the SEC are in trouble. The kng is dead? Too early?
20-0 A&M? How is this possible?
A and M is winning 21-0 in the first quarter, and has been looking good while doing it. And the kicker misses the extra point. The score is actually 20-0. Prepare for the typical A and M collapse in the second half.
Penn State gets to start at the Nebraska 35 yard-line thanks to the wind and a huge arc and a generally impotent drive by Nebraska on their last possession.
Penn State switches to a horizontal game for a moment and starts inching close to the end zone - things are looking up, so long as we hold onto the ball, yes?
ND is so damn lucky. Please lose to BC
I have to admit I find it hilarious to watch Bo Pelini stand gape-jawed like a large mouth bass every time his team gets a penalty.
I think you may have found photoshop gold. I only wish I had the skills.
Score ticker just said tamu and Alabama is 0-0. Haha sec bias!!
ever. ESSS EEEEE CEEEE
the more i watch Neb...the more I am convinced Denard wins that game going away.
PSU recovers muffed punt
Nebraska muffs the punt. Penn State with the ball at Neb's 30.
I will root hard for O'Brien until I have to worry about him in the Big Ten Championship game. I love their playcalling and overall execution on offense. Fun to watch.
Once they're back on our schedule, they can go to hell.
TD Penn State. 17-6 now.
Which with Pellini, go figure...
It's hard to substitute players as the play is happening - Nebraska is just now coming to this conclusion, it seems.
...and they sort of let James get the TD there. Nebraska's secondary stood there in the effective, "Oh, shit, he caught it..." formation...
save them 3 weeks in a row?
That's a fumble, IMO
gosh...I'm tired of looking at Pelini, looks like a goof.
EDIT: Great decision!
I know the Big 10 refs are a little whistle-happy, but some of the calls this year are just silly. And that includes whatever happened on the sideline.
go that far.
why Zach Zwinak was the No. 1 FB recruit in the country a few years ago.
81 yards in the first half.
Nebraska needs to hire some different ones.
Bama back in the game. 20-14 Aggies. A&M can score, but they are a streaky team.
Looks like Alabama is warmed up finally. 20-14
If Penn State wins we will be in the race.
Huh? We're 30 minutes of football away from controlling our own destiny.
Nebreska is unbelievably lucky.
yea...not a great start PSU, jeez
FUck, here we go again....
McGroin...jeez, that was bad.
Nebraska is very, very lucky.
...except PSU starting their implosion sooner than MSU did
We are Pe..ehh? /sadface
Well here's to hoping that somehow Minnesota or Iowa can beat Nebraska.
Penn State gives up 14 point advantage in a matter of minutes....
Stafford (the guy who made the pick) was seen in the first half pointing his finger dead between Pelini's eyes and telling him "Don't you fucking talk to me like that" after he went off on him. Bo goes soft, leaves him in the game, and boom. Just our luck.
I blame Silas Redd for this PSU implosion.
no flag for that??? Wow
Penn State really needs to have a classic Penn State year-long drive here....and score on it as well. That would definitely help here, and they seem to be doing it 6-10 yards at a stretch.
The momentum shifts with Nebraska's defense are amazing.
are not very consistent.
PSU takes the lead back with a field goal. 23-20
props to Ficken. not long ago it looked like psu would never get a FG this season.
Yeah, that UVA game earlier this year was brutal. Nice to see the kid bounce back.
Nebraska's offense has been on fire in the 2nd half both running and passing.
Damn it looks lke Nebraska is starting to figure them out.
Penn State was supposed to have a decent rush defense. Guess not.
So did Michigan State, until they rushed for 300 against us...
aTm 20, BAMA 17
It's so hard to watch this game and think about what could have been had Denard stayed healthy. We were playing really great defense that game.
If we put Gardner at QB an let his athleticism take over. Might not have had the playbook down but would have been better than what we had.
and appear to be held up for 3 pts.
Oh sweet yay.
wohoo! time for a long psu td drive now.
One of those things that you don't hear often in the Legends Division: "Thank you, Taylor Martinez. Your mistake means a lot to me."
Thanks T-Mart, now go down and get some points McGloin.
Bill O'Brien deserves a ton of credit for what he's done this year. Could not have been easy.
it's gonna be tough for psu to hang on if they can't move it, and then keep letting Neb march down the field.
Go penn straight!!
at the decision to have Bellomy as UM's No. 2.
Nebraska fans around me were like, "how can a team like Michigan not have a decent backup"?
And I mean, they were right. Just look at Northwestern today. And look at Michigan the last two weeks. This was a significant error in judgement in my opinion by Hoke and Borges. All the more surprising too, given their combined years of experience coaching.
Nebraska is a very, very beatable team, as MSU, Northwestern have shown (PSU is showing).
Fuckin' Penn State.
Sigh..no one will convince me Neb is really that good...no one will. A Pissed off Oregon might be the remedy for this.
Did Penn St forget the gatorade or something? So many cramps.
71 yard drive looked very easy.
This one is over. PSU is gassed.
I am starting to really dislike/hate Nebraska.
Fucking Penn State. Way to choke this one away.
How do Martinez's passes even get to the receivers? He pushes the ball
Have ZERO confidence McGloin will do much this drive.
They are moving down the field on that defense like a knife through melted butter.
Misses an easy FG. Bama will win...screw the SEC
Wow. A & M are you kidding. Drop a TD pass, then miss the field goal. Unreal.
Nice throw by mcgloin...
hell yea Robinson....bought damn time McGloin
So is it mandatory that whenever a team has an opportunity to help Michigan (NW, MSU, PSU) they must do whatever they can to crap the bed? I hope that PSU can get something going here.
Nice prediction asshole.
after a huge pass play....PSU goes 2 straight runs to kill the MO, wow.
What a terrible mistake by Nebraska. Haha.
Nebraska is winning games and stuff, but fans I spoke to out there kind of don't like the guy. He's just too much of a hot-head.
If Nebraska makes the Rose Bowl, I really, really hope they get stuck with playing Oregon. That would be the perfect remedy to quell the idea anyone has that Nebraska is any good.
C'mon PAS. Just PUSH IT!
Wow. Face mask against Nebraska when they basically had Penn State possibly settling for just an FG. "You had him there for a minute, man...he was flinching...."
Seriously? Fucking hell.
Thanks PSU, thanks a whole fucking lot!
EDIT:We might be ok. These might be legitimate thank yous.
you have to be kidding me
He was down!!!
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?
Football is the worst.
IT"S A TD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAY!
That's a TD.
THATS a TOUCHDOWN!
That's a TD. Gotta be overturned.
that is a TD...lets see if PSU gets screwed
That should be a TD yes?!?
Gotta make the kick though.
Fumble or not, selfish fucking play. Your team has two more chances to score, no need to be a hero.
Nothing "selfish" about it. All you have to do is possess the ball for an instant in the endzone. He did.
Bama fumbles hehehe
Texas A&M 23, Alabama 17
What the fuck?!?!
Td Bullshit call
Wow, luck streak continues for NU
Fuck you refs
What. The. Fuck.
That's the most ridiculous call I've ever seen
Things are getting wild in football right now.
This doesn't make sense. Ugh c'mon penn state
PSU Robbed. Robbed. Wow.
now PSU has a legit gripe, that is just bad.
Awful, Awful call.
Bull. Shit. fuck Nebraska more and more every week.
TD!!!! Nice corrupt officials in Lincoln.....
Such a bullshit call.
What camera were they looking at.
SRSLY? Come on...
fuck you you fucking refs, blind assholes
Two weeks in a row
good point, WTF is going on?
What is the point of replay if the results are just as arbitrary as the calls on the field?
Commentators show a blind freeze shot of ball across line firmly in his hands. How would replay nit have that shot too?
I have now come to grips with the fact that Nebraska will not lose another conference game. They have a lucky horseshoe so far embedded up their ass that nothing can stop them now. That was a freaking TD.
It was the same 2 weeks ago...
Punt it Huskers.
Tressel in the replay booth???
They might as well get rid of instant replay, we see time and again they don't get the call right anyway.
Holy punt Batman. Damn!
No wonder Sparty was so pissed last week....2 weeks in a row 2 god awful calls benefits the Huskers
let's see if penn st can overcome the refs
Really... A 70 yard punt...I hate having to root for other teams who proceed to lose in ridiculous fashion.
Robbed by the refs right there. Terrible review result. Don't take it to the twitter kids....lets just f
How does anyone not call that a TD? WTF
He was clearly trying to shovel the ball into the endzone! It was coming out before the QB even handed it off!
That is not luck, that is a blown call. Wasn't even close. Whoever is in the replay booth should be fired on the spot. Those complete morons might have just decided a conference title.
Never thought I'd say this, but I'm starting to agree with Leveon Bell re: the Black and White Team.
Not controlling your destiny blows when the rest of the conference is filled with muppets like Staee and Penn St, and those are the teams that actually have a shot to beat Nebraska
That is not luck, that is a blown call. Wasn't even close. Whoever is in the replay booth should be fired on the spot. Those complete morons might have just decided a conference title.
Texas A&M 29, Alabama 17....
TD TEXAS A&M
Stupid replay officials may have just screwed our title hopes.
I hope PSU can do this
Fuck you, McGloin. Fucking idiot.
It's ok, we still got Minnesota.
he had a receiver in the area... totally covered, but in the area!
how is that grounding?!
The shit show continues
Okay, clearly the Big Ten wants a Nebraska/Wisconsin title game. It's become way too obvious now.
Get a grip.
but it's no different than a punt from better field position.
This officiating crew and replay crew are fucking pathetic.
Nebraska, bailed out by the refs, again.
Thats it...I cant handle this.
FUCKIN' MOTHER FUCK!!!
McGloin is an idiot, good lord have some field awareness.
McGloin's internal QB clock is broken.
Safety on Penn State -
Kudos to Nebraska special teams....nice punt to corner them.
it stings more and more each time they show it
Bad year for relying on other teams to carry our water.
between Michigan and a conference title game appearance is a blind replay official, a Sparty meltdown against Nebraska aided by two bad calls, and Michigan having to play their third best QB for much of the game against Nebraska. Total bullshit.
that pretty much sums it up, it makes me furious too
I expect the replay official was able to see just fine...as he accepted the envelope full of cash provided by a friendly Nebraska booster. That was one seroiusly f*cked up failure to overturn the call.
Don't forget Northwestern blowing a 12-point lead at home with less than 7 minutes to play. GBR.
Penn State should protest this game. I know it won't work, but just to show what a joke those referees are.
Fuck Spielman and his lame attempts to appear unbiased.
Sheez. This stinks for us
How the fuck do you blow that replay, I hope they all get fucking fired.
I can't believe this horseshit. How was that not a touchdown based on the current rules? So terrible. Nebraska is so fucking lucky after MSU crapped the bed late and now PSU gonna crap this one away (with help of refs). Dammit.
Is that there are no consequences that make it come out right for the team getting screwed.
If I learned anything from today, nothing is over until its over. There's still time for PSU to pull this off.
This is grand larseny god damn it.
He's going to be around for a while...
Spielman draws the tackle box, McGloin is outside of that and Spielman says he's not outside. LOS was 3.5 y line, ball was thrown to the 4.
We have no one to blame but ourselves. We needed to beat nu and we didn't get it done.
Just because we lost doesn't mean we should have to endure shitty refs trying to blow games.
with your third best QB,and a guy who clearly wasn't ready to be thrown into that situation. People may call that an excuse, but that was the reality in that particular game.
I think we all no exactly who to blame for this and its not us.
I could see the refs screwing up the initial call, but the replay officials fucking it up is just unacceptable bullshit.
Lundquist and Danielson are so god darn awful. They don't know what down it is half of the time.
We may win Tears of Unfathomable Sadness in a week we pull out an OT win. I love this blog!
SURPRISED THESE REFS DID NOT RULE THAT A FUMBLE.
No, we'd have to have the replay officials overturn it.
The ball was coming out, right?
