for a comment on a 3:30 game.  Interesting play in the Okie State-TCU game.  TCU punted. TCU player hits the ball to keep it from going in the endzone.  OSU player subsequently touches it.  TCU recovers.  Now, I know that in that event you get your choice of where it was touched or take the play.  BUT, that doesn't apply if the receiving team commits a penalty, which OSU did.  So, TCU ball.  A wrinkle on a wrinkle.  I didn't know about the penalty exception.

That first targeting wasn't malicous. It just happens and actually Metellus kind of did the exact same thing late in the game. Guy is going down and moves into your "strike zone."

The second one, ab-so-fucking-lutely! That kid should've been kicked out for stupidity if nothing else. He literally launched at O'Korn's head.

trying just drilling a defenseless receiver, it is 100% malicious.  Yes, he may not have been wanting to hit the guy in the head, per se, but he certainly wanted to hurt him.  There was no play on the ball, it was only an attempt to hurt a guy and make him think twice about going over the middle. 

And that's fine, that's part of the game, defenders try to hurt guys. But that's the defintion of malicious.

I'm just so happy we made it to this bye week. It's so nice to take this young team, slow things down, and figure some things out.

I love the matchup against MSU - I expect a HUGE win over Sparty.
