The 5th down & goal given to Colorado in 1990 was bad but that was the first year college football allowed you to spike the ball to stop the clock. The rule was so new that the Missouri crowd and opposing sideline didn't notice when Colorado spiked the ball on 4th down. The head official of that game didn't realize what had happened until he was actually driving home from the stadium that day and he had to pull to the side of the road to throw up.
If a rule is new, the ref should be aware of it. It's not a defense. But I can kind of see where confusion could arise.
That OSU/KSU game issue was incompetence that should not happen today. And the ref for last year's Minnesota game at the big house should have known that if you call timeout after your QB loses his helmet, he doesn't have to sit out a play.

The only thing that really made me livid was the false start on 3rd and 2, which ended up forcing us to kick another field goal right before halftime.
It was another happy Saturday for me except for some jackass teams winning.
Question: Are we going to continue going after every single punt? I'm more worried about our guys running into the kicker than ever.

2002 OSU...ugh. Don't remind me of that team. I'm still in shock over that miracle 4th quarter touchdown pass they got to beat the "mighty" 6 loss Purdue Boilers by the score of 10-6. Or a few weeks later when they had to go into overtime to beat an awful Illinois team. Or the several other games against awful competition where they barely escaped.

Loved this game in Elementary school. But I almost always died of a snake bite.

Florida looked pretty damn good yesterday. They looked bad to mediocre during their first four games.

Yes. The 4-0 start in 09 and the 5-0 start in 2010, we knew we were in deep sh*t after barely surviving Indiana. Not that the D looked particularly strong before that either.

I've been surprised at how often they've been giving up the big plays every week.
|1 day 2 hours ago||Ball State led them at||
Ball State led them at halftime. Had about equal stats on the ground (182) and through the air (178).
NU came back in the third quarter but could do nothing in the 4th quarter allowing Ball State to come back and close within 5.

Probably. I know Northwestern has a freshman QB, I don't know his stats, I'll have to look them up.
If we can avoid turnovers (I know, big if) we'll be in pretty good shape. Rudock doesn't have to be a super star, just have a solid afternoon. If he could finally hook up on one of those deep passes to Chesson, I think that could do a world of wonders.
But yes, I'm prepared for a slugfest.

The better question is, after what we've seen the last two years, is Michigan/Northwestern going to be another game where football goes to die? Football so ugly it might give you eye cancer?
Maybe the change of scenery from two straight in Evanston will change that. How great would it be to go all BYU on them? If the Northwestern team that played Ball State shows up at the big house, we may just get that. But that would be too cool. In reality, we'll probably be playing the Northwestern team who beat Stanford.

Would be nice to get revenge on them for that 13-12 loss in the '72 Rose Bowl that ruined our 11-0 record.

Wisconsin pretty much handed that game to Iowa on a platter by losing a fumble on 2nd & goal from the 2 yard line towards the end of the game.
That game was very 2014 MOON. Pitiful offense on both sides and a clown show of turnovers by both sides. Someone just had to win in the end.
|1 day 4 hours ago||Michigan's ranking is||
Michigan's ranking is fair.
MSU deservedly dropped a couple spots.
OSU still at #1 despite being 9 yards away from going to overtime against Indiana and their backup quarterback is overly generous.
Teams losing their #1 ranking despite a win is not uncommon. It even happened to us in 1977 after a ho-hum 14-7 win over Navy at the big house. That dropped us to #3. In 97, after Nebraska needed a miracle yet illegal kick to force overtime against an unranked Missouri team, they also dropped from #1 to #3.
Why does OSU still stay #1 after a 7 point win over Northern Illinois and yesterday's Indiana game. Because Urban Meyer poops rainbows?

Given the media's ability to constantly jack off to anything SEC related, the odds aren't good.

If they did go to Ann Abror, that would be a first. Every other time they have gone for the UM/MSU game, the game was always in East Lansing.
But if Florida/LSU is also playing that day, no way are they going to choose our game over that one.

I don't know. Colorado lost to Hawaii a few weeks back. I don't have much faith that they can hold off the Ducks too long.

Nice!!! Keep it up, Clemson. Score 90 if you have to. Or 100.
Fuck Notre Dame.

I didn't think they were. In the last three weeks, they barely avoided going to overtime against East Carolina, won just 14-9 over Kentucky and beat Tennessee by 1 point on a 4th down conversion and a wide right field goal by the Vols on the final play.
I thought they were going to lose big tonight.

Did I read that correctly? LSU up just 17-14 on Eastern at halftime?

Florida's field looks like the big house grass before we switched to field turf. Huge clumps of dirt and grass all over the place.

All the teams I despise are winning today. That means Notre Dame wins this game easy.

Stupid, stupid, stupid.
I don't think I've ever seen OSU lose an ugly game. They always do just enough and get just enough luck to pull out the win and the commentators STILL kiss their asses.

Probably not. But it's nice to dream.
