Even though we do not play until Saturday, there finally is some actual football going on. Big games are South Carolina v. UNC, and USC v. Hawaii. In B1G action, Indiana plays Indiana State, and Minnesota plays UNLV.
Thursday Football Open Thread
Like a kid on Christmas... It's finally back. Homework can wait a night.
ew, the "H" word. I'm so glad I am done with college.
ESPN needs to show some of the highlights of Lou Holtz's tenure at South Carolina to the Gamecock fans. This should fill about 2-3 minutes perhaps if they really dig.
Seriously though, folks. Football is here. Let's make it a good season of both Michigan football as well as open threads, MACtion or otherwise.
EDIT: When I think Gamecocks, I think "Also Sprach Zarathustra" too...
To add to the CFB starting tonight, Hoke will be on PTI as well.
Ok the chances of this game being interesting took an early hit. Also the black in North Carolina's helmets blows.
Anybody scouting Utah for next year? My good friend is a ute so ill be watching that with him
No because we have the 2013 season to worry about first.
I am disappointed in your finite capacity to worry.
Well, that didn't take much time.
That was a pretty throw! This might be a snoozer after the first quarter, BUT its football!!!
That long pass gave me flashbacks.
What's the over under on number of times "the hit" gets played on the first series for Clowney?
I didn't watch the pregame, but I'm guessing they played it a couple time already.
has glasses. Never seen that before.
Chester Marchol. Polish Packer from the 70's.
Akron and Connecticut also play tonight. Obviously, I am not worried about playing those teams, but it is always nice to see how they perform, especially defensively. Offense could really rack up the yards if they are porous.
Usually the games on this day suck. But I don't care. IT'S BACK.
Was that kicker wearing glasses?
I would argue vandy and ole miss is the best game of the night.
I agree. Im very excited to see how Ole Miss looks. They have been hyped up all off season bc of their recruiting class.
Also, I love UNCs unis!
who tweeted stacks of cash right? Treadwell, or something like that was the kid I believe. I want to see if Ole Miss gets any return on their investment.
Me too, couldn't tell if their pants and unite numbers were black or their dark dark blue at first.
But they are still freshman. So it's not going to impact tonights game much for Ole Miss. Maybe the 2014 and 2015 openers.
has one really good WR named Donte Moncrief who may move up to 1st round of 2014 draft. He is a big WR at 6'3" and 220 lbs and runs about 4.4. Very explosive WR who will garner a ton of attention from defense. That leaves Treadwill who will start at Z WR position to make an impact if he lives up to the hype.
So what you're saying is, Moncrief might actually get paid more next year than he's making now?
This is from earlier but I was just wondering if anyone caught the end of 5 good minutes with Brady Hoke on PTI today. At the end as they were cuttin gto commercial it sounded like Tony asked Jason Whitlock (who played at Ball St.) who would win a fight between himself, Jason and Coach Hoke. Whitlock said Brady would because he Jason, himself loves Brady too much to ever fight him. Just an interesting short story I thought.
What's the over/under for how many times they show the Jadaveon Clowney hit against Smith in this SC vs UNC game i'm going with 5
I wonder when we see the first ejection from the new targeting rules.
to get Bolivia'd.
You had to have said something pretty forboden to get that treatment. Saying you think Ohio is a better team than Michigan "against the mods saying the opposite" wouldn't get you in trouble. Your honesty must have been stepping over the grey area and splash landing in the "Do Not Talk About" land.
I've seen the mods get uber conservative IMO, but it couldn't be that bad. Then again, I've seen people get super sensitive about anything thought as anti-Michigan.
he was Bolivia'd after being a dick in the Moore, Oklahoma thread. According to LSA he was set to come back this week ("waning hours before the season").
He has, however, been banned for the homophobic slur in the now-deleted reply to you.
Are you the one who posted the pic of the dead horse yesterday?
Hope they keep this game interesting.
I could be wrong, but North Carolina was almost helping Brandon Wilds out there - it was almost as if they were assisting in pushing the pile closer to their own end zone.
Obviously this years designated 'hype for the Heisman' player is D.Clowney.On the plus side I like seeing a Def. player get some Heisman attention but it means even more replays of 'the hit" and I hate seeing ESPN having so much influence on the Heisman Trophy. (Apologies for already speaking of Heisman)
if Terrell Suggs couldn't win the Heisman as a DE in the early 2000's at Arizona State with something like 22 or 23 sacks, no DE should ever win.
His stats last year were identical to Clowney. Hopefully that comparison will get people to STFU about him.
Let's Go, Devils!!
The Tar Heels got another few yards on the drive. It's something, right?
On the upside, they are not afraid to hit on special teams.
"Only bc clowney let them..." -- ESPN
Had to google him,ESPN strikes again.
So I'm watching the battle of the Carolinas and my dad walks in and says, "are they talking about superman yet? what color cape is he wearing?" [This after both of us spent the afternoon nauseated at all the Clowney-mania on ESPN... My dad has a pretty good sense of humor.]
Best case scenario: UNC pulls out the upset W and Clowney still blow some poor kid up and gives ESPN someting new to talk about. It looks like that first part ain't happenin'..
OMG it's really here!
North Carolina is a scared, bad football team. SC can name the score.
