You are a shining ray of hope in an otherwise bleak and desolate world.

I agree with you, clarkie, though a quick correction that MSU has only played two games thus far (JSU & Oregon), as they had a bye this week.
|12 hours 21 min ago||CJ Brown is Maryland's starting QB||
I didn't see the game so perhaps he did not start this contest, however he's been the main guy for Maryland since the beginning of the 2013 season (he was to be the starting QB in 2012 but tore an ACL in fall camp).
You are right that he is not much of a passer -- he is also Maryland's leading rusher, with 219 yards (2nd is Wes Brown with 142).
EDIT: Never mind, the OP edited the section on Maryland. Disregard this post.

I don't gamble but I would think not betting on your own team would be rule #1, and possibly even rules #1-20.

There's something about the way that Hinton writes (some kind of underlying layer of smugness, if that makes sense?) which has always kept me from really enjoying his articles. On the other hand, he's a Southern Miss grad, and it's not exactly a great time to be a fan of the Golden Eagles, so maybe I should let it slide.
Also, am I blind or can you not comment on articles at Grantland?

I got that same feeling about the DBs, perched high up in the 3rd to last row of the south endzone.

And what has the guy with zero career touchdowns and three career interceptions (one against App State) shown thus far to indicate he is better?
|1 week 2 days ago||Brian Kelly||
As a GV grad, I know what he did in Allendale is pretty remarkable -- taking a nothing program in a nothing town (sorry, residents) and making it into a perennial contender -- but I would have a really hard time rooting for a guy who acts like such a complete asshole on the sidelines and generally seems like an uptight dick.
To Hell with Notre Dame!

I'll be in attendance for my first ND Stadium experience and I could not be more pumped up. Feeling weirdly optimistic about tomorrow night and my day was just made seeing that Brian is equally glass-half-full.
Let's do this! Go Blue!!

Wolverine318 changed his username to GROOT presumably at some point after seeing Guardians Of The Galaxy.
I am confident that big_house_500th is a different person altogether.

Rodriguez had a couple of pretty successful years ('99 and '00) as the OC of Clemson before getting the head gig at WVU.
|1 week 4 days ago||You're right about the||
You're right about the Mich/App State game -- there were no official lines for FBS/FCS matchups at that point in time. However, I want to say I recall some "unofficial" ones pegging ASU underdogs by 35-36 points.
That CMU/WMU game caught me by surprise. I can't imagine a gap that big in perceived talent/ability in a conference like the MAC such that one team would be favored over another by five+ touchdowns.

The first thing that pops in my head when I hear about the "yips" is poor Chuck Knoblauch. That was a serious case of the yips.
|1 week 4 days ago||Stanford/USC||
Depending on where you looked, Stanford was around a 41-point underdog against USC in 2007. It was deemed to be the largest upset in terms of point spread in the history of college football.

It's not a bad stance to take and I totally understand your reasoning. I'm not quite ready to crown them kings every year, but maybe that's wishful thinking.

|1 week 4 days ago||Sparty was 7-6 in 2012||
Don't forget that only two years ago MSU had a subpar season. Yes, they have an easy schedule (seriously, Neb, UM, and OSU at home...c'mon), but they aren't very far removed from barely beating a shitty TCU team just to avoid a sub-.500 record.
The other reason I don't see them making the CFP is their non-conference schedule is a joke. One legit team (Oregon) and three piles of shit (JSU, EMU & Wyoming). If they lose to the Ducks this weekend, they would need to win out the rest of the way to be in the conversation, and I do not see that happening with all the talent they lost.
|1 week 4 days ago||D-Funch||
Yeah, my guess is this is the last year we'll see Funchess in the winged helmet. And if it is, then it'll mean he had a great season, with a good chance of the team also having had a successful campaign.
