|3 days 16 hours ago||Yup exactly||
Just from the standpoint of "PSU has a fractured image", this was a healing process. And yeah, a lot of their fans STILL don't get it, and winning last night obviously won't fix that image. But to me, it was basically Franklin saying "we can finally celebrate something good for Penn State again". I don't get why that's so controversial.

I love to pile on Rutgers as much as the next guy (they clearly do not belong in our conference)...but in this case, given the circumstances, Rutgers' band should be applauded for a classy gesture. Let's not forget that band are there as entertainment and, for crissake, it's just a game.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Hey||
That's offensive. To Hawaii.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||What happened?||
|2 weeks 4 days ago||We gave up, like, two first downs||
|2 weeks 4 days ago||I'm bored||
And I love it
|3 weeks 5 hours ago||Ok let's trade||
OU for Nebraska.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Then I must be going crazy||
I thought he was annoying af. They droned on and on about Wisconsin and their players...almost like he was trying to hard not to be a homer.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Ole Miss is 2-2 and ranked one spot higher.||
How in the hell should THEY be ranked anywhere close to 16? Because they beat a Georgia team that has struggled against inferior competition all year?
I'm glad at least OU dropped out. No 1-2 team should ever be ranked.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Remember when facemasks were intentional vs. incidental?||
I'm glad they aren't anymore. Just don't go anywhere near the facemask! Same with the head, don't do it! I think the zero-tolerance aspect of the rule is more effective.
Now the rule, I think, still needs revision, because it seems quite harsh for a guy to have to leave a game because he accidentally hit a receiver in the head while going for the ball. But...they're erring on the side of "do not overturn" for a reason.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||They had a warning previously though||
They got the warning before.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Franklin is a terrible coach||
That's about all I got out of the game today.
They had a chance to try and crawl back in the game early in the 3rd quarter....4th and goal from the 2. You gotta go for it there.
Instead he prcoeeds to call a meaningless timeout to avoid a delay of game penalty on a field goal that would have probably been EASIER from 5 yards back anyway.
I just...the ineptness is staggering to me. I know that's who he's always been...but it is such a stark contrast when your coach is, like...not...inept.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||FYI my man||
It doesn't need to be raining for lightning to strike.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Man people sure love to dog on Speight.||
I thought he was fine today. Maybe not great, but fine. Left some things to be desired (missed a couple open receivers and didn't have great touch on his short throws), but the offense didn't need to rely on him today. Possible his arm is still bothering him after the hit from last week. But I still saw some good...like his elusiveness avoiding the pass rush and extending plays, and no turnovers. Completed 61% of his passes, which isn't bad.
He'll be a much bigger factor next week, so hope he's ready to step up again. But I'm not going to complain much about his performance today.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Both and neither||
MSU is clearly not as good without Cook, and their D has some weaknesses to exploit. But...two bad mistakes gave Wisky 14 points.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Yup||
The only reason they really beat LSU was because LSU's offense is beyond terrible.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Let's keep in mind||
That the garage might not be totally full yet...remember, Brown is game 3 as new DC, and his defense is complex and crazy. You don't just learn everything about a complex new system at once, or else there would be more busts than what we've already seen. I think it's more likely he hasn't installed them yet (or they're working on it, but it's not game-ready).
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Millen||
Millen was super annoying at the start of the game during the first quarter. He kept saying "Colorado needs to keep Michigan from scoring and score some points in the first quarter", as if it was some super insider analyst comment instead of, like, duh. Admittedly the disaster that was the 1st quarter left me in a bitter mood anyway, so that's probably part of my annoyance with him. But even still...how many times do you need to say "this is exactly what they wanted to do" to a team that scores 21 points in the first quarter? That's pretty much exactly what every team ever wants to do.
Other than that I agree with Brian. He got much less noticably annoying after that.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||This exactly||
I mean, OU may very well work their way back...but they should have to earn it. You don't just get credit for losing to good teams. Especially the way OU has lost...they've looked pretty bad. OSU flat out embarrassed them at home. Very undisciplined play against OSU and Houston. So it's not even like a Colorado who lost to us but looked fairly dangerous in the process.
No 1-2 team should ever be ranked imo.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Not really||
Last year their O was garbage until they played us.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||I don't care what the rule is||
Being able to chuck the ball and commit a penalty to end the game is dumb. The rule itself is arbitrary...if a penalty ends in loss of down, why is that a suddenly ok way to end the game? The intent of the rule is to prevent offenses from getting free untuned downs...but in this case, loss of down results in a turnover. And the rule just doesn't sufficiently address it. CMU may not have won the game by current rules, but as for a "spirit/integrity of the game" argument, the rule SHOULD be that CMU gets an Untimed down in that situation.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Ok sure||
Now ask yourself...did you get Michigan's best effort today?
Also ask yourself...did you look at the scoreboard at the end of the game?
I'll take "getting outhit" everyday if it means winning by 37.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||LOL||
That was beyond terrible from the Tulsa QB.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Yeah that'll teach them||
Keep fighting the good fight, NCAA!
|7 weeks 18 hours ago||LSU mystifies me||
You have a top tier RB and continually get top talent at WR...so what's the problem? How is it so hard to find a QB that can compliment that? He doesn't have to be a star. He just has to make a play here or there. You know, not suck.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||WOW||
HOLY SHIT! BLOCKED EXTRA POINT RETURNED FOR A GAME-TYING TWO-POINT CONVERSION. CRAZY. I'm not rooting for ND obviously but still...HOLY SHIT.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Moron||
Did he seriously think he caught that? Dumbass. Just cost his team a timeout on a challenge (that had to be wasted anyway because they weren't ready for the snap).
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Yeah||
It's hard not to feel like LSU was supremely overrated this season because of ZOMG FOURNETTE. I don't care who you have back there at RB, if your offense is boring/predictable and your OL isn't dominating the line, you won't be very successful. They had, what, 7 offensive points all game?
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Yeah||
How dare we be proud of a team that won a game by 60 points. FUCK POSITIVITY, YOU GUYS.
|8 weeks 16 hours ago||I sort of see what you're saying||
But I'm also bothered by the idea that we have to give money in order to criticize something. Is it suddenly ok for DB to respond that way if I don't buy football tickets (too expensive) and never attended the university? You might say "yes", but what if I've been a diehard M fan for decades?
