Rutgers at South Florida and Chicago at Green Bay.  I actually like the Rutgers chrome helmet.

I watched the first quarter of USF-Rutgers and it dawned on me that some offenses try to take it to the house, but B.J. Daniels so far is more along the lines of "If I can just get it to the 30 or so and Bonani can kick it from there..."

Im amazed at how much I think I know from playing video games.


Like, why the fuck is Mike Tice calling play action against heavy blitzes when the Bears haven't established the run yet?

Rutgers had USF at 2nd and 29 thanks to USF trying to set a record for longest 1st down ever, and the Rutgers secondary chooses that moment to develop hysterical blindness. Awesome.

USF is a dirty program and Rutgers is in New Jersey . . . Seems almost like an ND/MSU Asteroid rooting game.  I'm going to hold my nose & say "Go Chrome-Domes"!

Yes, I'm watching this awful Big East game instead of the Packers/Bears game. I wish I liked the NFL more than I do, but I just can't sit and watch any NFL game like I can with NCAA. It's just not as fun. I'm just a CFB junky and I can't help myself. I can't wait for Saturday...coming from Cleveland to tailgate and then going to the game.

Looks like I may have jumped the gun with Cobb starting him this week in FFB.  He hasn't had a single ball thrown his way this game (nor been on the field much).  My league rewards return yards a bit, so there is that hope...

Nah he has still been returning kicks and just got his first catch.  They just havent been using him as much as last week in the passing game.  Looked like he just had a minor stinger to me from his body language (and from playing football) and from the fact he has been playing.

EDIT: And there he goes with the long run too!  Like that reverse jinx I pulled there?

The team doctor was testing his shoulder on the sideline after he took a hit to the shoulder.  He probably just hit it really hard but he was being tested for a dislocated shoulder (which is why they were testing the shoulder).  Obviously he is fine, obviously the test was negative. just passing along the info.

I can't believe I'm saying this, but I'm actually bored watching this college game. I normally watch as many games as possible because I like CFB more than anything, but damn, this game is freaking terrible.

Alright, I know I am among people with CFB problems.  Be honest, who else here has been peaking at the Mississippi Valley State and Southern University game too?


Be honest...
