Noon Games Open Thread

Submitted by alum96 on October 4th, 2014 at 11:48 AM

Incredibly full day of good games today - some in each time slot rather than being all stuffed at 8 PM to boot.  Going to be a good one.

OSU v Maryland and A&M v Miss State (no defense to be played) should be the 2 most interesting in the noon time slot

 

  • Ball State at Army, CBS Sports Net, noon
  • Florida at Tennessee, SEC, noon
  • Iowa State at Oklahoma State, FS1, noon
  • Marshall at Old Dominion, FSN, noon
  • Ohio State at Maryland, ABC, noon
  • Purdue at Illinois, ESPN2, noon
  • SMU at East Carolina, ESPNU, noon
  • Texas A&M at MIssissippi State, ESPN, noon

OP I still can't get over David Cutcliffe in ur sig line...and Todd F'N Graham. Like Greg Schiano was busy? home run hires they are not.

Send us the 61 year old Mad Hatter for a decade.

Cutcliffe is old(60) and has no ties to the Midwest. Mullen is younger, but he was on the hotseat just last year. Sumlin's teams play no defense.The same for Graham.

 

Michigan needs a coach who understands that both sides of the ball are of equal importance.UM has had an all-offensive guy and an all-defense guy.Neither guy has succeeded.

Graham's defenses at ASU his first 2 years were ranked #2 in 2012 (behind Stanford) and #4 in 2013 (behind Stanford, USC, Oregon).  So he actually does play some defense.  Sumlin doesnt.

Look Cultcliffe is not my favorite or anything  - he seems like a guy Brandon would go after with his love for all things Duke.

p.s. Miles LSU's teams are generally bottom 40 in the country year after year, and Gundy's defenses are bottom 20 year after year.  Gundy is basically Sumlin.  Miles is basically MSU of 2012 but with far better athletes.

They just mistook someone's mouthguard for a flag in the Purdue-Illinois game. That bodes well for this particular matchup, I think. Also, Purdue has a great east-west running game if that first drive is any indication.

One of these 2 coaches below is Sumlin at Houston.  The other is another coach in the same division of Conf USA whose career overlapped with Sumlin 3 of the 4 years he was in Conference USA.  He makes $2.4M today and could be had in a minute.

Can you tell the difference between the 2 coaches? 

Coach 1:  36-17 W/L.  Three 10+ win seasons and 1 down year.  Total offense ranked as Top 5 in the country 3 of the 4 years he was there.  Defense was not good 2 of the 4 years, but in this type of conference anything in the 60s-70s is considered "decent".

    Tot Off Tot Def
2006 8-5 24 21
2007 10-4 1 108
2008 11-3 1 74
2009 5-7 35 85
2010 10-3 5 111

 

Coach 2:  36-17 W/L.  Two 10+ win seasons and 1 down year.  Total offense ranked as Top 5 in the country 3 of the 4 years he was there. Defense was not good for 3 of the 4 years, but in this type of conference anything in the 60s-70s is considered "decent".

    Tot Off Tot Def
2007 8-5 4 46
2008 8-5 2 100
2009 10-4 1 111
2010 5-7 11 103
2011 13-1 1 62

Love the TAMU uniformz. I bet the pkayers love them. Sux that we can never do something that cool since all the traditionalist fans will scream bloody murder.

Our offense is fucking terrible. We have a 5th year senior qb and we can't score shit. I'm sick of inept coaching at Michigan while everywhere else teams have no issue being young and scoring points. Just pisses me off.

It's their pride helmet...it's really pretty cool if you're a Maryland fan because that state takes so much pride in its unique flag.

Really not that big of a deal anymore.

I want to know what Tennessee is thinking with the T on the front of their jersey. They have it on the front of their helmet, above the last name on the back, above the number on the front, on both side of the helmet and on their pants.

In case you didn't know...Tennessee is playing. And that T, below the Adidas logo, looks awful
