Well, that was the dumbest thing I saw today.

Big going ons in Eugene.  Review takes away Duck touchdown.  Two messed up snaps later and Stanford runs the 2nd one for a TD.

None.  Some PPV thing.

OVERTIME.  OU missed its chipshot.

Don't look now but La Tech has crawled itself back into the game 24-21, most of 4th quarter still left.

Florida is laying it on Tennessee.  Safety, then 1-play and touchdown.

09/22/2018 - 7:21pm Why are the announcers…

Why are the announcers prattling on about VT calling time out when ODU got the first down with the unsportsmanlike tacked on?  The clock was going to restart.

09/22/2018 - 7:15pm ODU eschews the knee in…

ODU eschews the knee in favor of rushing it in from what 35 yards?  Yikes.

09/22/2018 - 7:03pm Wow.  Great catch by Texas…

Wow.  Great catch by Texas WR.  Lays out.  TD w/ the PAT 17-16 Longhorns.

Old Dominion's helmets look like an old-school Lowenbrau bottle.

09/22/2018 - 6:52pm Fudge.  VT throws a TD pass…

Fudge.  VT throws a TD pass on a 4th and 2.  With the PAT it's tied 35-35 w/ 715 left.

You may remember the rule of no return on a muff from the very end of UTL I.

 

09/17/2018 - 4:40pm It's a reasonable take that…

It's a reasonable take that the average might not tell the right story.  BUT, you can't then compare the median to a national / Big Ten/ Top 25 average---just like how it's illegitimate to say things like take out the top 4 runs, and team X is below average, unless the average you're talking about is the average game after taking out the top 4 runs.  And even then such an exercise is questionable because it's likely the particular yardstick was chosen after looking at the data.

I don't read the snowflake threads but it isn't because I don't want to search through them for people's opinions on specific items.

Given that they're (properly imho) sticky for the day or so on the front page message board adding more means nothing else will show up there.  I rather enjoy the snark on the afternoon/evening games threads and wouldn't want them to be diminished.

USC just got screwed out of a safety.

Early in the 3rd, Bama 52, Ole Miss 7.  Crimson Tide should be investigated --- for Sherman antitrust violations

09/15/2018 - 8:52pm Ha-ha.  Sean was wrong. …

Ha-ha.  Sean was wrong.  Alabama didn't score 50 at half.

Also USC's QB has a Sydney Crosby 'stache.

PI all the way.  Arnette was holding his jersey in the chest.

09/15/2018 - 8:13pm The good news is Bama doesn…

The good news is Bama doesn't have a kicker.

The bad news: Does it really matter?

09/15/2018 - 7:48pm Gotta love Sean McDermott, …

Gotta love Sean McDermott, "No SEC team has started the year with 3 straight games scoring over 50 points.  Alabama might reach that by the half."

09/15/2018 - 7:35pm My guess is you get your…

My guess is you get your wish, but I don't know why you'd be rooting for Missouri over the Boilers.  Well, maybe you're tired of the late-game cheap shots?

09/15/2018 - 7:21pm Ole Miss scored on their…

Ole Miss scored on their first play, a bomb down the sideline.  They should have burned their TOs Corso style and taken a picture because Alabama passed down the field with zero difficulty.  This game is going to give Tua Heisman stats.

09/15/2018 - 3:03pm Iowa State converted a 4th &…

Iowa State converted a 4th & 11 but eventually only got a field goal.  With 10 minutes left 34-27 OU.

09/15/2018 - 1:46pm Not a great start by Willie…

Not a great start by Willie.  FSU drove down the field but threw in bounds with no timeouts left.  They could have had a chipshot field goal, but instead they just got to stand around wondering about the clock.

09/15/2018 - 1:11pm Sauerkraut or Kimchee.  Good…

Sauerkraut or Kimchee.  Good for the digestive system.

09/15/2018 - 12:57pm Ooof, pretty cheap shot by…

Ooof, pretty cheap shot by Kent State defender on McSorley.  He went low on him well after he handed on the read.  Nothing caleld and the guy didn't have his heart really in it, but something to watch if Kent state is going to lose its cool as a team.

BTW, KSU can't stop Penn State, and the KSU left tackle is having a miserable day.

09/15/2018 - 12:53pm Wow, nice TD punt return by…

Wow, nice TD punt return by Troy.  I saw one guy setting up a terrible block in the back but he pulled up just in time and nicely walled off the guy.

09/15/2018 - 12:41pm Stands.  Knew I was in…

Stands.  Knew I was in trouble when Blandino agreed with me that the call should be overturned.

09/15/2018 - 12:39pm Nebraska fumble ruled down,…

Nebraska fumble ruled down, but it doesn't look like it.  Should be Troy's ball.

09/15/2018 - 12:27pm I freely admit that I'm…

I freely admit that I'm easily amused, but I find myself looking forward to those Fansville Dr. Pepper commercials.  The one question I have is whether being a Tech fan is a recessive gene because if not, someone needs a paternity test kit.

Oh, and nice touchdown by Kent State.

EDIT:

And the onside kick works.

NCAA.org has running totals of games started & played in for each player on the roster.  Here's Michigan's link but all teams are available by going to the team's page and then clicking on roster.  Clinking on any player will indicate what games they played in.

Yes, it was intentional that I didn't say walk-ons.  And, fwiw, my purpose was to acknowledge / celebrate their contributions.

Meh,

n choose k with p=.5 = 0.16

I've seen more improbable things happen.

Day should fire Schiano before Monday when Myers gets back.

#23 saftety for OSU J Whint looked like he was running in a peat bog.

09/01/2018 - 11:44am I think a legitimate…

I think a legitimate question would be how the backups on the DL perform.  They get more legit snaps than back ups elsewhere (other than RB).  I'm feeling good about it, but it is an unknown.

The other question/thing I'd like to see is Winovich get a few less snaps, though I can't give you any empirical evidence from last year why I'd want this; it's purely theoretical.  That could occur due to a better offense and/or playing the backups.

09/01/2018 - 11:36am I'm more optimistic on…

I'm more optimistic on Patterson.  I like the McKeon prediction, but only if you look past the numbers you can find on NCAA.org.  I think it's hard for him to really ramp up the numbers when 2 other tight ends will be biting deeply into it, you have a slot who leads the team in receptions and a view to get Evans more involved in receiving.

Prediction?  Offense in the high teens S&P.

08/22/2018 - 10:06pm Seems like that rocket ship…

Seems like that rocket ship with which BC wants to fire Durkin into space needs a couple extra seats.

08/22/2018 - 9:35pm Phew!  Got the dreaded 502…

Phew!  Got the dreaded 502 for a moment.

You guys gotta show some sympathy for Meyer.  He just learned that he's not president of OSU.  (I guess he also found out he's responsible for everything that goes on.)

08/22/2018 - 9:17pm Michigan and Ohio State fans…

Michigan and Ohio State fans agree!  Both are saying this is bullshit.

08/22/2018 - 8:51pm Announcing new OSU president…

Announcing new OSU president, Jim Tressel!
