Teams like Colorado are also why I don't like it when Brian opens his game preview with "[This team] is not good." You don't know shit at the beginning of the season.
|5 days 14 hours ago||Not a catch||
Great catch, but no catch.
|5 days 14 hours ago||Perfect analysis||
"Either he got it or he didn't"
|1 week 3 days ago||And 5-7 since the start of the millennium!||
|1 week 4 days ago||...really? REALLY?!||
C'mon. We can find better ways to prove Ohio State is a shitstain without calling Jim Tressel a cheating scum.
|1 week 4 days ago||Are people still using the "too small" argument?||
Desmond is 5'10 and about 188 pounds in his playing days. Wes Welker is 5'9 and 185. I don't recall him being too small.
|1 week 4 days ago||"The enemy"||
I quite enjoy this terminology and make a motion to refer to Ohio State in this manner henceforth.
|1 week 6 days ago||I'm a big weather apologist||
Yes, obviously Tom Brady wouldn't struggle as much in that type of weather, so it's not a "well of course he didn't do well, *nobody* could do well!" situation. But let's remember it was his first start in that weather. I don't think it's indicative of his abilities.

I feel very much as though I missed something.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Let's get an honorable mention for Western Michigan||
They won their game and are now the only other undefeated team apart from Bama in FBS.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Okay well...||
They'd better figure it out one way or another pretty soon. If he can't go, O'Korn will have needed the first-team reps in practice, and those make a huge difference.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Yet, bizzarely,||
They couldn't get in the end zone with four shots from the 1 yard line to win it against the Seahawks.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||It's not||
Their defense has been quite decent this year. It's even stepped up in some clutch moments.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Also recall||
Alabama lost at least one game for 3 out of 4 of their national titles under Saban. Last year they gave up 43 in a loss. Undefeated seasons really are difficult, and nothing's perfect.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Well that's an interesting year to choose.||
Nothing more, I don't know, recent springs to mind?
|3 weeks 4 days ago||This stat||
That's actually quite amazing.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||I HAVE TO GO TO SLEEP||
I DON'T EVEN CARE
|4 weeks 6 days ago||God that was funny||
The game was mostly unenjoyable from a "why are they so close?" perspective, but I laughed so goddamn hard at the final play. Literally no reason to go for two instead of an extra point, and it bit them so hard. Eat shit, Dantonio.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Is it maize pants?||
ARE THEY BRINGING BACK THE MAIZE PANTS?
|6 weeks 3 days ago||So...||
...you're saying it was lucky for Michigan State to play the game under those circumstances?
Doesn't really sound like a curse.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||It's rather amazing||
Worst defense in program history in 2010, and in 2016 it's arguably the best it's ever been.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||They beat a stacked Ohio State team after that||
|7 weeks 4 days ago||You're right||
But it's a consideration, not an issue.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||We don't really need to dissect this to death.||
We know, by this point, what we get with RichRod. He's a clever, innovative coach who's good, but not the best. He'll put together some good teams and he'll put together some bad ones. He'll have some great games and some not-so-great ones. Good, but not elite. Honestly, that's not a sin. That's why I think Arizona's a good fit for him. There isn't the guillotine hanging over his head like there is at a blue blood.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||Er...||
Is it just me, or does that not seem all that bad?
|9 weeks 2 days ago||Had 40 yards in the damn Super Bowl||
I'd take that
|9 weeks 2 days ago||Praise be to Tebow!||
|9 weeks 5 days ago||Yeah, it is strange||
Let's not forget that Brian Kelly won a bazillion national championships at Grand Valley (D-II) and did a great job with Cincinnati too. It doesn't mean that Notre Dame should be great, but I don't get why they're bad.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||Hell, even Saban's only done it once ever.||
|10 weeks 5 days ago||You know||
Rankings honestly mean little to me anymore. I don't care to haggle over who belongs where. Honestly, pick any five consecutively-ranked teams and they could all beat each other under the right circumstances.
So I no longer care to argue. We're a consensus #4? Cool. Sparty's #9? Cool. Let's play.
