Yes thank you dad. You earned one Texas is back from me

The flying death machine known as the Alabama Crimson tide is gonna win again this year. All other opinions are invalid. They cannot be stopped. Accept it now and it will make it easier.

I'm just going to talk about the NFL on this thread just to trigger risk.

So how about dem Bears? What's happening with Mason Crosby? Will the packers recover?

2 big boy TDs yesterday from the Chiefs and Vikings, always grateful to see those type of interceptions.

I don't like Patriots but they're still going to win their division in the AFC east as it's literally the most lopsided one. All they have to do is win 4 other games outside their divison and they go to the playoffs. (Which isn't hard in the AFC). But they do have a hard schedule so hopefully this year we may have a different AFC champion other than the patriots.

Id say the top 30-40 teams in Division I is fairly competitive. You have some teams that blow everyone outa the water like Alabama, Georgia, but for everyone else theres no guarantee of who's going to win. Its happened plenty of times already this season where unranked teams beat top 25 teams. But i do know what you mean. When Ohio state or another big team plays a team like Rutgers for instance its basically just sit back and see how many points they can put on'em

Predicting the playoffs to be Alabama, Ohio State, LSU, and probably Clemson.(Even though I think Georgia should get the last spot, but the SEC championship will most likely be Georgia losing to Alabama/LSU so.) I don't believe Notre Dame will get a spot in the playoffs as they almost got embarrassed by one "worst" of the SEC, Vanderbilt. Predicting Tennessee to finish the season 7-5, with losses to Bama and Kentucky. Kentucky is winnable though. Georgia should win the rest of their season and Im gonna change my mind and say I think LSU beats Bama and goes to the conf. champ. against Georgia.(Tua got injured in mizzou game.)

Michigans still gotta play Michigan St, Penn St, and of course Ohio St. And if they lose any of those they probably arent getting into the playoffs, but who knows maybe.

Trust me, Texas being in top 10 is a shocker and I can't believe it. But SEC teams have some of the easiest schedules. Alabama has 1 hard game vs LSU. LSU has 2, Alabama and Georgia. Georgia has 1 vs LSU and maybe 2, Flordia. Yeah sure they have some good top 10 teams but eh those schedules...

Even these other teams in the top 10 not in the SEC. Ohio State and Notre Dame each has/had a tough game vs Michigan, and Clemson literally plays nobodies.

Alabama does have a hard schedule comparatively, just not for them because theyre bama and they blow everyone outa the water. I wasn't super impressed with LSU this weekend. All their points came from Fitzgerald throwing them picks. Joe Burrow didnt seem like he could get anything going consistently. I still think theyre gonna get smushed by bama. Sorry Nick

Yep.  Bama does its best to play nobodies as much as possible.  and then people go "wow.  look how great they are" after playing said nobodies.  im not sure about this year, but in the past they made sure they played some nobody a week before their big game so it is essentially a bye week.   They pretty much rely on their conference having 2-3 decent or better teams to make them have a semi challenging schedule.(with one of those games being in the conference championship)

with all that said though, most teams do their best to make their non conference as easy as possible, with maybe one challenging game. They get their 2-3 easy wins making it easier to get into a bowl game. 



the OSU game was just sad to watch.   They haven't looked top 5 all year.  Their defense has been awful for an "elite" team.  They can't run the ball either.    OSU self destructed so many times saturday.   Much like they did last year when Iowa beat the snot out of them.  That game was more or less over at half against Iowa.     I am glad we gave urban his worst beating in any of his coaching jobs.  it brings a smile to my face. 


I honestly dont know who has the best conference anymore from top to bottom.   I lean big 10.  They have 6 good teams this year with some not so bad middle teams.(and a few really bad ones) I am not impressed by the PAC 12.   Big 12 isn't too bad, but its mainly the same 3 teams with the rest being meh to garbage.   ACC is meh outside of clemson and miami imo.  SEC has 4 or 5 good teams this year with rest being meh or worse.
Title: Re: College Football Thread
Post by: ~NickCole~ on October 22, 2018, 08:38:54 am
Idk because Big 10 best team is Michigan and besides that the only other "good" teams are Michigan State, Ohio State, Wisconsin, Iowa, and Penn State. Michigan and Penn State have a tough schedule but the other good teams have a decent schedule facing 2 or 3 rank teams. Meanwhile SEC has Bama, LSU, GA, and Florida which are all top 15 teams with LSU having the hardest schedule by a mile. I know every other team I mention in SEC does have the same situation of schedule like Big 10 teams with 2-3 rank matches to be fair however, Auburn who sucks now did beat Washington which suppose to be the best team in the Pac-12. SEC teams like Texas A&M & Kentucky are solid teams in the top 25 aswell and keep in mind Texas A&M only 2 losses are to Clemson 28-26 and Bama. SEC also has the best chance to send 2 teams to the College Football Playoffs.
Title: Re: College Football Thread
Post by: Thunderstormer on October 22, 2018, 09:51:19 am
It is hard to say about some of the middle big 10 teams.   Purdue has been playing pretty well, with its 3 loses being very close games.  NW plays to the level of its opponents.  Plays great against good teams, plays like garbage against bad ones.(see it vs Mi and rutgers) Indiana isnt half bad either.  Maryland beat texas.  I think OSU can bounce back.  How well, im not sure. 

Iowa lost to WI in game where i think iowa was the better team, but made 2 costly turnovers on special teams.   If they keep playing the way they are, they will win the west and take on probably a one loss OSU or MI.(still need WI to lose another game)   They will probably be in the top 15 if not top 10 if they win out before championship.  So whoever the big 10 champ is will probably win against a top 10 team. 

washington and oregon were the 2 best teams of the pac 12, but they dont seem too impressive. 

anyways, i doubt 2 sec teams will be in it.   You have bama clemson, ND as 3 of the 4.   after that, you have LSU, MI, and texas.  i think if one of those teams lose, they are out.  you would need help from others to get back in.  You still have other possibilities that are a more remote.(like Iowa winning out as an example and WI losing.  doubtful, but it could happen) WI is out of it.   i think OK still has a chance. i think florida and georgia are in it too, even if unlikely.   i dont think WV has a chance.

Yeah pretty much. Teams pay money to have those easy home games at the beginning and yeah it does help with bowl games so they do it. I don't think OSU is bad. They look good but I think they just slacked off or something and Purdue was doing amazing. I think they can beat Michigan at the end of the season if they regroup after that loss.

sorry Nick, I have to cheer for Bama now over LSU. Best chance for Texas to get in! will be a good game. Also, Flordia vs Georgia this weekend will say a lot too. Will knock out a team and put the winning team in good standing.

Fair points and Purdue I saw were underrated because of their close unluck losses. Whoever Wins the GA vs FL game can make the Playoffs if they go undefeated. LSU does play best when they are the underdog so watch out for DBU Nation. I know it will be a tough game but Bama has looked so good passing wise because the teams they play defensively are straight up trash.

I am more curious if Bama can play 4 quarters.   With all of these easy games, usually being done at half time, can they play a 4 quarter game against a tough opponent?   They haven't been tested all year.(unlike the other top teams)

What? no sorry I just dont think so. Tua is too good to be held to 20 points, not mentioning the other tools bama has. They can definitely play 4 quarters, part of the reason bama games are done at half-time is because they play so well with their starters, then once they know theyve won the game they put their third strings in to get some play time.

Tua's never played an average defense for an entire game. That boy will get flustered and he'll look like a headless chicken facing an elite defense like LSU. Case closed

Marksman everyone gets it Bama has been killing teams but look who they have played.

1.) Louisville (2-5) - They are terrible and been losing to every ACC team they faced
2.) Arkansas State (4-3) - Nobodies
3.) Ole Miss (5-3) - One of the worst defenses I had seen this year Allowing 41 points to fucking Southern Illinois
4.) Texas A&M (5-2) - Bama's best win but they barely beat South Carolina & Kentucky
5.) Louisiana Cajuns (3-4) - Nobodies
6.) Arkansas (2-6) - Arkansas the worst team in the SEC West losing to Colorado State & North Texas this year
7.) Missouri (4-3) - Offensively not bad but their defense has been bad for a long time
8.) Tennessee (3-4) - Their offense is so bad that they give points to the defense and has lost every game to a SEC team besides Auburn who suck ass now

Based on this schedule Idk how you can say Bama is straight up better than everyone. I get it people doubt anyone to beat them but if anyone can beat Bama it is LSU because of how many good or solid teams we have beaten this year. We beat #8 Miami, #7 Auburn, #2 Georgia, and #22 Miss State. Experts said we were suppose to lose all those games expect Miss State. We have 3 guys on the Mid- Season First team Defense - Devin White, Greedy Williams, and Grant Delpit. Not saying we wouldn't lose but this year we have done a good job stopping the pass with 14 int & dominated GA's offense line which is one of the biggest in the country. I don't mind people doubting LSU because we play best when we are underdogs.

You're right Alabama hasn't played a truly elite team yet, however they have played a few solid teams, and none of the games they have played have even been close really. If you want to bring up the game by game, LSU had a great game against Georgia, which was truly a pleasant surprise as a S Car fan, but they also played an uncomfortably close game with Auburn (who lost to Tennessee), and lost to Florida (who lost to Kentucky and was down to Vandy 21-3 at the half). Im not saying its impossible, in fact I think Id like to see LSU win. The thing is though a lot of the times these big college football games are decided by who gets the momentum, and momentum is largely created by a teams quarterback. I dont know if Joe Burrow can create any momentum against bama, and all Tua does it seems is create momentum, I mean he doesnt have a pick yet this season. For LSU my heart says yes but my head says no :(

but they barely beat South Carolina

Tua is a monster. Dude hasn't even played a 4th quarter yet this year. Imagine the scores if he did. Bama would be winning all their games by 70+ points. LSU's defense is going to be what decides the win for them. It is going to be up to LSU's offense to keep up with Tua's touchdowns on every drive because I don't think he can be stopped. LSU's wins tend to be low-scoring defensive battles. So if Tua is unaffected by LSU's top tier defense then the game is over. I don't think Burrows can score on every drive against Bama defense.

Looks like Georgia won by a good margin.  I thought i heard it was mostly with a back up QB.  I didn't get to watch the game.    I was too busy watching Iowa do what Iowa does best, beat itself.  At least one easy touchdown missed.   gave away a field goal before half in one of the worst decisions i seen by them in a long time.  Lots of easy throws whiffed.   Iowa could and should have won that game, much like against WI, but they got in their own way consistently.  These types of loses are more painful to watch than the ones where you were just beat down on by a better team.  As an Iowa fan, this is just something ive gotten use to over the years. Even in games we should dominate, we always have to keep it close.   We rarely ever just beat someone down and put the game away early.     

I guess there is an upside to iowa losing.   Their defense has too many young players.(replacing all of the starting LBs and 2 freshmen corners were starting)   Even had they won, and somehow got to the championship, idk how well they would of played.   I would say it would probably be a close match, as Iowa generally doesn't get blown out that often but unless they played at a really high efficiency, they would lose.   and lets say they somehow won, i dont think they could really hang with the top teams.   Not with all of that inexperience.  our Defensive line is what is keeping us in a lot of these games, or making the plays to get us the win. 

all well, at least Iowa State won. 


The big 10 west div is a mess.   NW now has it, but i get the feeling they aren't going to win out.(they remind me of Iowa in so many ways.  they barely beat rutgers....)  I can see them losing a game or 2 to another big 10 team.  No matter who wins the west, it wont be pretty.  and if MI ends up losing, then the east wont look much better.   MI is the Big 10s only hope of getting to the playoffs.   OSU would need help from the other top teams losing(and probably badly) to get in if they win out. 


Clemson looked good. i think the rest of the top teams 5 teams are off.     Texas plays tonight against OSU, which i think will be a good game.

Herman is retarded for playing 2 cornerback freshman and a safety over our experienced defense players in the 1st quarter. They were suspended because they came late to weight training and we gave up 17 pts in the 1st due to this (same thing for one of our best receivers). Almost came back but wasn't good enough. regardless, Texas had a 6-1 start which no one saw coming so hopefully we coming back over time.

ah.   i saw they were down every time i flipped over by 14-21 points.   Was mainly watching the world series, so i didn't get to watch a lot of that game.

but yea, i can see Texas being a contender again in the years to come.  about time really.  much like MI.   

i know while he was coaching at Iowa state, they had a pretty good offense.   he did fairly well out OSU and houston.

Georgia with the unholy duo of Swift and Holyfield is something else. Although Florida did have a point in the game where they stopped Georgia 7 times on the goal line in a row. That was pretty impressive but they still lost because they had some big turnovers.

i can see that.  I am not sure if MI or ND can hang with either one.   I am not sure who else in the top 10 could do that either.  I will say the QB injuries for bama is a little concerning but they are a team full of 5 stars. i would assume they have someone that can play well enough if their QBs cant play.  One of the luxuries almost all other teams dont have.

yeah lol. Bama just hogs those recruits. but like every dynasty it eventually dies out. this has happened to many teams over decades... they get good and continue to be in the top 10 because of their program and recruiting. its just a cycle and historically speaking, it doesn't last forever.


maybe another top 10 could get in. Ohio st vs Michigan, Bama vs Georgia, WV vs Oklahoma  are the last few big games that can determine a lot. I think Syracuse could even beat ND possibly.

God Georgia's recruiting is so easy. They have virtually no in state competition besides GT and the state of Georgia consistently pumps a high number of great recruits every year. At S Carolina we have to compete with Clemson in an already small state, makes getting a top recruiting class super hard. We had a 4 star decommit and go to Georgia like two weeks ago, shit made my blood boil.

Also I know this is old but this was hilarious

John Emery Jr commits to LSU easy. 5 Star stud from desterhan
I'm glad he decommitted from GA
Yeah, even as a GA fan he wouldn't have gotten much time behind Holyfield and Swift who are probably going to stay a couple more years.
Very true that duo is pretty nice.
God Georgia's recruiting is so easy. They have virtually no in state competition besides GT and the state of Georgia consistently pumps a high number of great recruits every year.

lets go SC. I believe in this upset. they only down 21-28 to Clemson right now. also USC could upset ND as well, they are up 10-0 rn

edit: SC had a great start tbh, Clemson just regrouped in the second half. USC had a chance, oh well

We did better than I thought so thats good. I was worried theyd shut us out with theyre defence but i dont think theyre as good as they think they are. Our offence is capable of doing some great stuff, Jake Bentley had 510 passing yds, its just our defence cant stop shit, especially Clemson, doesnt help that all our starting defenders are out.

The LSU game was pretty crazy, broke a bunch of fbs records. I also was prepared to eat my words about Michigan, i thought they were gonna roll Ohio st but oh well. At this point I just want as much chaos as possible. Just please let every favored team lose their conference game this Saturday.

yeah SC did good imo. Clemson looked nervous which they haven't been in a while plus with the ACC being pretty easy imo. If the favored teams lost their final games/ conf. championships, the CFP could get wild

also Texas vs Oklahoma part 2! hopefully we can beat them 2 times in one season, nothing would be better  8)

not too suprised at the top 4.   im not sure 3, 4, 5, or 6 are at the same level currently as the top 2.  each one has their issues.   

i guess we will see how well those teams travel. 


i wonder if this will start the discussion to expanding the playoff to 8 teams.(i think the odds would of been a lot higher had georgia got in over OK)  personally, i think it should of been 8 teams since the beginning, if not 6.  it would of avoided so many of the issues like can 2 teams from one conference get in, leaving one or more conference champions out, or basically preventing any team like UCF of ever having a chance to play in the playoffs. 

on another minor note, i am glad Georgia didn't get in.   i wouldn't of felt like seeing another Georgia bama game.

I don't get the argument for Notre Dame in. Yea theyre undefeated but theyre also independent and hardly played anyone really good besides Michigan, the first game of the season, which would have looked better if Michigan had beat Ohio St but they got beat pretty handedly sooo... Im pretty confident Notre Dame would get whipped by any of the other top 6 teams. Like I just cant see them beating Georgia or Ohio St in a head to head yet theyre 3rd and those two teams are out.

I was thinking the cfp could be expanded to 12 teams. The top 4 teams would automatically get to the quarterfinals while the rest of the 8 teams would have to play eachother to advance to a quarter final spot. That way theres still some incentive to be in the top 4. But then you have other issues like where you would fit all those games in with the bowl schedule so idk.

im not against them moving more in that direction.   march madness is a great success.  i agree that ND to me is probably the weakest of the 4 teams.  i would put OK ahead of them. 

and marksman, 12 teams wouldn't be bad imo.  5-12 play in the first week or so of the new year, maybe before, and then the next week the winners play the top 4.  as for ND, im not sure they could beat OK, georgia, or Ohio state.  they never really seemed that impressive when i watched them.

Title: Re: College Football Thread
Post by: Thunderstormer on December 30, 2018, 07:33:42 am
Generally speaking, i am not.   Bowl games are just a completely different beast compared to the regular season.  players leave for the NFL, several weeks off from playing(harder to keep your momentum), generally speaking you are lacking the same enthusiasm that you would have against a rival then some random team, the travel and the time spent doing activities at the destination.  Some teams travel well, others do not.  Not to mention, some of these "road" games are home games for many teams, as they play in their own stadium, or close by compared to teams from the north.(this isn't exclusive to the bowl season)  Iowa state played memphis last year in their home stadium.  iowa played florida in their own stadium in the past, if memory serves.  Personally, i dont think that should be allowed.  Make both teams have to travel.   

Anyways, i would of guessed the scores for MI and Fl to be closer.  as for the national championship, i am not suprised clemson and bama won as easily as they did.   I didn't think any of the top 10 teams really had much of a chance against those 2. 

in other news, the refs in the ISU vs Was St qualified for the worst refs in this bowl season.  It is hard to enjoy a game when the refs keep blowing calls and being inconsistent.  They turned what would of been a good/great game into a painful one to watch.  I guess there was one bright side, they weren't as bad as those ACC refs from a few years ago. 

anyone remember this?

College football is pretty boring outside the school rivalry games. Or if your an Alabama Clemson Georgia fan and even then, those teams are just turning into rivalry games. PAC 12 is basically a non existent conference that can’t attract the talent like others can so it’ll take some big scandals or luck for them to even get close to competing with the powerhouse teams, university of Washington made it to No. 4 in 2016 but then fell back down

Post by: Thunderstormer on January 02, 2019, 07:10:21 am
idk, i can see the PAC 12 making a come back down the road.   Right now, they just dont have an elite team in the conference.(oregon was it for many years)  They need a team, or even a few teams to be consistently great.  ACC has clemson, SEC bama, Big 10 OSU, and Big 12 OU.(maybe texas again?)  There are of course plenty of other teams in those conferences that are above average, to almost elite themselves.  Sadly most teams that aren't filled with 5 star recruits will have good and not so good seasons.  That means you can go from 10+ wins to barely 6 depending on how much turn over you have, combined with how well your opponents are doing. 

I find it hard to watch the pac 12, because they tend to start playing at 9 my time or play during other more important games.(for me)  SO it is hard for me to gauge how good that conference is. 


on a side note, i still find it funny Penn state kept saying they were an elite team, or right on the edge of it.   There wasn't a game this season that made me think that.  I dont even know how they were ranked 12th.  They were slightly above average.   They were only able to make a decent showing in the 4th quarter after their QB started making all the plays. 

as for college football in general, i enjoy close games.  I hate when they aren't competitive.(even more when they are cup cake games in the middle of the season.  *Cough* SEC *Cough*  Rivalries just make the games better.  I really hate when the refs decide the game rather than the players. 
Title: Re: College Football Thread
Post by: ~NickCole~ on January 02, 2019, 07:20:47 am
Pac-12 is pretty trash & no surprise Washington lost since they couldn't beat Auburn the beginning of the year. Penn State was over rated and relied on the QB to carry them. The SEC has turned from a bunch of good teams beating each other up in one conference to Bama and everyone else. The only good top teams in the SEC besides Bama is Georgia, LSU, & Florida. Also sad to see that Georgia lost because they weren't motivated to win the bowl while Texas was. LSU will get a crack at Texas next year to try and redeem the SEC for Georgia's embarrassing loss.
Title: Re: College Football Thread
Post by: Siwi on January 02, 2019, 08:05:29 am
Yeah I think a lot of the pac 12 schools are angry about the fact their games start so late and they lose the east coast audience. I went to a Washington State v University of Arizona game back the week before thanksgiving and it started at like 7pm Pacific which is 10pm east coast and it definitely didn’t finish before midnight on the east coast

2 interceptions(1 pick six), missed extra point, that horrible fake field goal attempt(not only was it obvious clemson was ready for it, bama couldn't even block 1 guy that made the tackle), twice i believe they couldn't punch it in when they were near the goal line.  Those were just the most obvious things they did to themselves.   the defense wasn't that good either.  i will give bama some credit though, some of those throws and catches were fantastic by clemson.

the game started out pretty even, then bama collapsed.  I feel like it was partly due to bama not really playing more than 1 or 2 close games all season.  They weren't ready to punch back when faced with someone like clemson.  Another alarming comment made by nick at half was that clemson was using stuff they faced earlier in the season, and they didn't practice for that stuff.

I’ll be curious to see what Clemson’s QBs career looks like considering that’s him as freshman. He takes some hard hits tho, so it’s probably only a matter of time before he gets injured. If they were smart they’d tell him to play it safer and not go head to head into defenders when rushing

that last part of the game where he kept running it was a little painful to watch.  That is how you get hurt.  Mobile QBs are nice and all, and can do quite well, but most of them are always injured.   They dont make it too many seasons constantly taking so many hard hits.  the ones that cant really run anymore because they are hurt, and instead forced to stay in the pocket dont do to well either.    Its one of the main reasons why QBs who are use to staying in the pocket, and playing with the "pro" offense style tend to last.

Saban got outcoached by Dabo harder than I think I’ve ever seen. Clemson having 3 potential first rounders on their d-line showed the entire game. Terrible playcalling and poor defensive effort hurt Bama the whole game. Clemson was just a better team and made the better plays. And to think they have Trevor for 2-3 more years... Sheesh.

Here’s my top QB’s for the draft this year:

1.) Tua Tagovailoa - Alabama
2.) Justin Herbert - Oregon
2b.) Jake Fromm - Georgia
4.) KJ Costello - Stanford
5.) Jacob Eason - Washington
6.) Nate Stanley - Iowa

I think Herbert could potentially be the top QB if he fixes his accuracy issues this season. The dude is big and has crazy arm talent. He would’ve been the #1 pick if he came out last year. But right now I think he’s probably tied with Fromm for me.

I think the top four could all go in the first round. They’re definitely talented enough.

I'm not sure how well Nate Stanley/Iowas offense will do this year.  Losing 2 first round draft picks(both TE) which were his safety blanket will hurt.  On the other hand, Iowa has a tradition of making great TE, and he is a senior.  I believe if he gets as many TDs as he did last year, he will be #1 all time for Iowa QBs.

Big 10 West seems like it will be a fairly competitive Div.

He’s only a sophomore so he isn’t eligible for the NFL Draft. He will be the #1 pick next year.

Yeah I’m gonna be interested to see how he does after losing two of the best weapons on the team. In terms of his NFL potential though, I think he could go anywhere from the second to fourth round. I think he could be a legit talented NFL quarterback. He has the size and arm strength you’d want. He has games where he looks like he’s Big Ben. Also Iowa’s system should give him a head start in the NFL.

The Big 10 is gonna be really open this year I think. Michigan and Ohio State seem beatable to me. If Justin Fields is really THAT good right away tho I think Ohio State is gonna be legit contenders.

Our offensive line is the worst I’ve ever seen. Pair that with Williams not being ready it was a mess. So many delay of games, so many blown blocks, so many mistakes on offense. Williams didn’t even know how to throw the fucking ball away.

If Florida is #8 then Miami is #9. Florida is not a top 10 team.

I agree that the pro style offense that Iowa, and fewer and fewer teams each year(sadly) has does lend itself to playing in the NFL.  I too thought of the big ben reference after several different occasions he was able to throw a bullet while having someone draped all over him.(the  ohio state beat down a few years ago stands out as a great example of that)  There is something enjoyable about watching an opposing team not use to having a team line up and smash them over and over again with no way to stop it. 

sadly Iowa has a tradition of playing up or down to its opponents.   Top 10 team?  iowa will give them a good run and if at Home, a good chance of beating them    Be a nobody that Iowa should beat down?  Close game down to the wire.  absolutely aggravating to watch.  I enjoy watching Iowa state more.  More exciting(perhaps it has to do with the lack of defense in the big 12), and almost always the underdog in their conference games leads to less disappointment and greater joy when they win.  I hope the coach stays, but i wouldn't be surprised if he moved on.  If we are lucky, we will be the next Kirk Ferentz that stays at his school for 20+ years. 

As for the Big 10.  I think it is wide open.  Ohio state will always be a contender.  Much like bama and other schools that are filled with tons of 4 and 5 star recruits.  i can see 6-8 schools all having a decent shot at making it to the Big 10 title.  There will be some disappointing teams, and others that do far better than expected.

The Big 12 is always a fun watch. I’m gonna miss Kingsbury at Texas Tech his offense was easily the most exciting to watch for me. Hurts at Oklahoma is an automatic Heisman winner. He was tearing apart SEC defenses and now he’s in the Big 12 lmao.

Big 10 is gonna have to watch out for Nebraska. I hope they win it. Scott Frost is gonna turn another team around.

I think he did ok for what he was given. He had 200+ yds and a td with an O line that looked like a middle school flag football team. I mean 10 sacks? But yea both teams really played sloppy. It became comical tbh. The Florida secondary was awful and looked like they had never tackled before. Not to mention the penalties on both sides I think totaled like 250 yds. When that Florida d-back got a PI on 4th and 34 I about choked on my beer. How stupid can you be? Makin me feel better about SC playing them later in the season.

Too many delay of games. He looked like he forgot that he could throw the ball away. He even ran out of bounds behind the line of scrimmage instead of throwing it away lmao. A lot of his completions were from screens and dump offs. He will get better though. Good experience against a decent team.

Brevin Jordan was the bright spot of the game for me. Tight End U keeps pumping out stud tight ends.

I was hoping Oregon would be Auburn, but it seems that fell apart.    Every time i flipped over to that game, oregon looked good.  I guess they just fell apart some time later when i flipped back to the Iowa game.

The only thing that made our loss better was knowing that two other SEC east teams had losses to even worse teams. Still sucked; we got thoroughly outplayed at pretty much every spot on the field and we still had opportunities to save ourselves from an L and couldn't capitalize. Jake Bentley had a wide open TD pass in the fourth that wouldve saved us that honestly I couldve made and instead he decided that Molly Sue in the second row needed a free game ball.

yea, i saw the Tenn highlights after i posted.  Rip.   purdue beat vandy i think.  i was surprised the clemson score was so close.  I would say they may drop out of first, but bama in 2nd played another nobody and shouldn't be rewarded.   I feel like LSU should move up, but idk where to.  OSU stomped Cin which was suppose to be a fairly tough game.

If mich keeps playing like that, or even close to it, they wont last long in the top 10 or even top 25.  They have 3 of their next 5 games against very tough teams.(at Wis, home vs Iowa and Penn state)

could even look past those and see Mi state, maryland, ND, and OSU in the last part of the season.   They have a very tough schedule.  IF they can somehow win all or all but one game, they would be in the top 10 easily, and maybe top 4-6.  at times i feel the strength of schedule doesn't matter enough.  I would also add to that, putting cupcake games in the middle/end of conference play right before your major rivalry games should hurt you more.(hello auburn and bama)  It is basically a by week to prepare for your rivals.  i don't mind said games at the beginning of the season, but not in the middle or the end.(unless you are trying to get into a bowl game, and because of rain/disaster had to cancel a game earlier in the season and need to make one up)

Y’all underestimate Army. They have a great team this year. Will be top 25 by end of the season easily I think. That triple option is tough to go against especially early in the year.

I’m so pissed that Miami lost. We suck again I guess. Gave up 4th and 17...

Texas could’ve won if that dude doesn’t drop a TD early in the game. Also probably should’ve just kicked a field goal after the second time they got stopped. Horns down I guess.

I had money on Stanford so I’m pretty pissed. I was pretty blacked last night and didn’t know Costello wasn’t playing for Stanford. Tough L.

Syracuse hype train officially dead. RIP.

I was pissed that army wasnt able to win against Michigan however Tennessee losing to BYU partially made up for it.

I was rooting for LSU just so I could see coach O speak his glorious voice postgame. My buddy had bet 30 on Syracuse covering so lol at that one.

S Carolina scored a fuck ton with our new starting QB Hilinski, granted it was against Charleston Southern. But the most total yards of offense in program history is at least a little comforting after last week's debacle.   

I am not sure what good games are next week outside of Iowa vs ISU. 

I'll tell you what game is gonna be better than that. USC Bama next week. Tua and Jerry Jeudy aint gonna know what hit'em...

not sure about Wash st vs houstan, or Vi vs FL state.   i dont think clemson vs syracuse will be close.

Summary today:

-Maryland was a joke for throwing too much
-Penn State shouldn't be ranked 13 & the Pitt coach is retarded for not running the ball when their team was 1st and Goal
-South Carolina gave Bama a run for their money the 1st half
-USC is shit
-Iowa & Iowa State was close af
-MSU & ASU game had Zero offense
-Florida shouldn't be ranked 9 and got lucky the Freshman Kentucky kicker somehow missed a 35 yard FG
-Syracuse QB threw one of the Worst Interceptions I had ever seen in my life
-Florida State continues to throw games
Title: Re: College Football Thread

-South Carolina gave Bama a run for their money the 1st half

Cant say I didnt expect that one. The game was honestly much closer than the scoreline shows. We got 450+ yds of offence against bama as well as more 1st downs with a brand new qb so cant be too mad. Unfortunately we just couldnt get it in the endzone very well which is a fairly integral aspect if you want to win.

I think at least the SEC will be interesting this year. Bama looked vulnerable on defense and I wouldnt be surprised if they lost a game in the regular season. And Florida really is not impressing me and now they just lost their starting qb. I wouldnt be surprised actually if Tennessee came out next week and pulled a "shocker" in Gainesville. Shocking in quotations because I really wouldnt find it that shocking despite how badly Tennessee has looked recently.

Also fun fact you can see me at 7:00 on the concourse in the white hat right as they get the pick. Im basically famous

As i was at a wedding, and the hotel i was at had very few options, i didn't get to catch many games or just some late night highlights.

with that said,  MSU game just looked sad.  From what i saw, kentucky threw that game. i feel like it is a common trend for florida to be overrated.  every year they aren't that impressive but they end up in the top 10 or top 25.    I didn't catch the FSU vs virginia game, but it sounds like they threw that game. 

USC looked like what happens with a frechman QB.  I think maryland got a little too full of themselves.   

I too think Penn state is a little over rated.   watched the game the week before against buffalo and it felt more like a buffalo collapse than a domination by penn state if you went off the score. 

As for the Iowa vs ISU game.  I think iowa escaped with a win.  Iowa's secondary is just really young, and ISU just needed a FG to win.  They shown they could just swing the ball everywhere.  Was a pretty good game from what i saw.  I think both teams will do well in their conference's but idk how well.  OK looks mean.(i can see them in the playoffs)  Texas seems like they are back.    Big 10 is fairly good.  I guess we will see how good MI, Wis, Penn, OSU are and if any of the middle of the pack teams can pull off an upset or 2.  I am not convinced Iowa is one of the top teams in the big 10 yet.

some pretty good match ups this weekend.

Mich vs Wis.  If its the Mich we saw the first few weeks, i think Wis has it fairly easily.

Utah at USC could be something.

ND and Georgia could be good.   I am not convinced ND is ranked #7 but we will see.

there are probably another half dozen games that could be fun to watch as well.  OSU vs TX, Boise st vs AF, and Auburn vs TX A&M

You were right about Mich vs Wis. Wisconsin just absolutely outplayed them.

Texas game was just too many mistakes and terrible reffing. We muffed a punt and gave them a free touchdown in the second; and had two other bad turnovers. OK State has always had a pretty good offense and glad we got the win. But seriously, the refs were beyond terrible. They called like 2-3 unsportsmanlike conduct which were utter bullshit. I was trying to go back and see how many penalties they gave us compared to OK state, but couldn't find it.

ND surprisingly hung in there for a bit, but Georgia is just the better team.

UCF, TCU and Utah all got upset. and also Auburn beat A&M which was a very good win for them.

West Virginia almost choked to Kansas btw

Title: Re: College Football Thread
Post by: Thunderstormer on September 22, 2019, 11:17:57 am
The UCLA win was almost comical.   they have the 2nd and 3rd largest combacks in the BCS.

Indeed Mich looked awful.   Wis looked like the best team in the west by a large margin.  probably up there with OSU in the big 10 overall.  We will see how good iowa is when they go to Mich in 2 weeks and penn state not to long after.

I didn't catch the 4th quarter of OSU and TX, but it looked like a good game.  That onside quick was close.

ND played a lot better than i thought they would.  they deserve to be in the top 10, as does Wis.   Mich will fall out of the top 25(should) or be in the 20s.  they seem to be overrated every year too.

i was a little surprised by the UCF loss, but they came back after being 21 down and were still in the game.  Props to them.

I think USC is better than what people give them credit for, even with a 3rd string QB.  IDK if they are top 25 potential yet but they are playing fairly well from what i seen.

i didn't hear about KS vs WV but that is funny.  I think with this coach, they can turn kansas into a decent program.  Much like ISU.  I guess we will see in 5 years or so, if they can start competing with the top teams in the big 12 regularly.

on a side note, FSU didn't throw the a game again.

anyways, as for games that might be good.  Penn state at Maryland.  maybe ND and Virginia.  USC vs Wash.  KSU vs Ok state.  IDK if OSU at Neb will be close.  Wash St vs utah may be good.

ahhh that Clemson, NC game. I think going for 2 was the right call. Overtime would be hard against Clemson. I think NC will start to become pretty good with Mack Brown now. He's a legend.

Wisconsin's offensive line and defense are their strengths imo.

Virginia just blew it in the 2nd half against ND.

Washington had a good game vs USC. I thought it would have been a bit closer. But I was not expecting the A&M, Arkansas and Michigan State, Indiana games to be close.

OK State will probably go into the rankings for their win over K State (kinda a low scoring game for big 12 too).

Utah vs Washington State still going on rn. close game, but I think Washington State will pull off the upset.

on another note, idk how Iowa is ranked 14th.  i dont think they are that good.  As am Iowa fan, I am biased and often think Iowa is worse than what they are, but i dont think they deserve to be that high.  they didn't even play last week and went up 4 spots.  A win is a win, but we barely escaped ISU. 

I saw some of their highlights this week. Although it was against some no-name, Iowa's offense looks pretty strong. I think you guys could actually do well against Michigan next week.

rutgers is the Kansas of the big 10.  granted kansas is actually getting better where rutgers is not. 

I don't blame NC going for 2.  Kinda of a shame that the teams that do that don't succeed more often.

Wis offense didn't look that good against NW.   I even caught part of the game where they were getting booed off the field.  If they can't run the ball well, they don't do well.

I didn't catch the ND game.  looked like a back and forth game for a while base on the occasional highlights.

i think OK state should be ranked.

i didn't catch either of washington games.  I too was surprised how close  the Ind vs MSU and A&M and Ark games were.

Iowa did look good vs Mid Tenn.  I am still not convinced about the Iowa Defense.  Granted it is hard to evaluate a typical bend by dont break defense that they run.  Young and injured secondary doesnt help.  Offense looks good, but they still lack a deep ball threat.  iowa lacks a speedy guy who can just blow by everyone.  Stanley generally isn't that accurate either at longer distances.(by a lot)   the back up QB actually has me excited for next year. 

Baylor vs ISU was pretty boring until the 4th quarter.  I think the heat really took a toll on ISUs defense in the 4th quarter.

Auburn has been riding high recently so I think they could go into Gainesville and get an L. I think Auburn matches up well against them and I think theyre the better team but I think Florida always wins a big game every year so this might be it. As much as Id like to see Florida lose.

Tennessee and Georgia also play so thats a win for me regardless of who loses. (probably Tennessee)

Iowa is it's own worst enemy.  Been that way as far as a i remember.  They can have the team to compete against some of the best, but then they just find a way to self destruct.  It is what keeps us from competing in Big 10 titles or winning big bowl games like the rose bowl.   IDK of any other teams that are like this for as long as this, so i can only blame the coach.  We did more to hurt ourselves than MI did on several drives.  TBH, MI didn't look that good either.  For as bad as Iowa was, they only managed to get 10 points.  All in the first quarter.  A few of those turn overs were more down to bad luck while MI got lucky with a few of their mistakes.(like their fumble on a punt return) their 3rd down defense was awful.  Now, i would not be surprised if Iowa somehow managed to beat Penn state(i think it is a night game at iowa)


ISU won against TCU in a pretty convincing manner from what i saw.(they pulled the game off TV in the 2nd half...)

Sadly, i was busy the rest of the day, so i missed all the other games.  AU vs FL looked to be pretty good, as was TX vs WV.   I haven't seen any other scores so idk who all won today.

yeah. Sounds a bit like Texas, we tend to choke and throw games a lot. I agree that Michigan didn't look as good either. I think they have been falling off tbh.

pretty much every other game was expected. Baylor is actually undefeated right now. They have had some narrow wins but look pretty solid.
Michigan State was hanging in there for a bit against Ohio State.
Florida, Auburn game was pretty good. Bo Nix just looked nervous and was off. I think that's what a D1 school crowd will do to you. Florida did good.
Texas started slow but we finally started making some good plays and got 4 picks. we essentially won by 18, they got a last minute touchdown.
ISU is always not too bad and can do pretty well, kinda like OK State (which somehow got destroyed by Texas Tech today).

Stanford upset Washington too

Texas got lucky that kid decided to toss them the ball every possession. They could’ve lost that game.

Being a Miami fan fucking sucks. Worst team we’ve had in years. Tate Martell transfers here and we use him as a receiver... Perry looked decent during the comeback tho.

Post by: Thunderstormer on October 07, 2019, 01:15:03 am
the only way MI wins any of the other big games is if other teams self destruct like Iowa did unless MI somehow makes a big improvement.  Iowa just needs to clean up and i think they can compete with anyone in the big 10 outside of OSU.(not sure about Wis yet)  Perhaps the loss is a blessing, so we dont have to face OSU in the title game.(if we somehow have a great season)  While we always play OSU well, idk if that would be the case this year.   OSU is playing with a chip on their shoulder after 2 seasons "ruined" by 2 bad loses.(plus proving they can play even without Urban Meyer)

I will give baylor credit, they are winning games, even if many are close.  they made a nice turn around since their 1-11? season.  IDK if they will be like they were before that old coach of theirs was fired. 

I didnt have much faith in MSU vs OSU, even if MSU plays them well most years and wins.

I was worried after FL lost its QB the game would stop being good/close.  seemed like FL did good even with the backup before  i left. 

Sounds like texas did good.    I was surprised OSU lost to TT.   I saw Miami was down 24-3 or something, and they almost came back.  Pitt almost threw it against Duke. 

PAC 12 seems to be cannibalizing itself.  Everyone is beating everyone.  Big 10 does that a lot to.   Teams are often better than their record suggests.


as for rutgers.  even with the greatest QB in the nation, IDK if they could win more than a few games.  that team needs a lot of help.

tough loss. I think that we did fine, just needed to have a stronger offense earlier. Oklahoma had really good defense and we couldn't make a stop in the 4th.
Our only losses are to top 5 teams (both lost by 1 touchdown) so we just need to win out, which we can do.

I didn't see the SC vs Georgia game but it must have been good. Marksman will be happy lol

Was a piss poor showing by Georgia and especially Fromm. They could have tried to kick a 60 yard field goal with 8 seconds left but opted to hail Mary, which didn't go far. They just deserved the L, which is sad to say as a fan.

Yeh SC gave them many chances but Georgia's boring and simple offense couldn't do much. Yeh Fromm was pretty bad and I thought he would adjust during the 2nd half but didn't.

Title: Re: College Football Thread
Post by: Thunderstormer on October 13, 2019, 05:42:13 am
florida did better than i thought they would.

i was surprised how much of a defensive battle OU vs TX was. was a good game. 

baylor wins yet another close game. 

last i saw Minn beat Neb pretty handily.

i didnt watch the game, as i thought it wouldnt be close, but it looked like georgia was its own worse enemy.  congrats to SC though, beating top 5 teams always memorable.

MSU vs Wis was an ouch.   i didnt think it would be that lopsided.  Wis is easily the best team in the west, and OSU looks like the best in the east.


Iowa is in for a long season.  the offensive line is playing no where near its potential.  how many times can a defensive lineman just run up the middle before you try and do something to stop it.  at least we had one of the top plays of the year at the end of the game.  Was a close game before Iowa became its own worst enemy.   tbh, i dont remember the last time Iowa had a running back break for a long run(40+ yards) for a td.  We use to do it a lot, but in the last 5-10 years we haven't had a back or line capable of doing it on a consistent basis.  It doesn't help Iowa doesn't have a deep threat, so everyone can just play in or near the box.  We don't have our 2 NFL TEs as a safety blanket.   On the bright side, i feel good about the future TEs, our freshman RB(goodman i think), and our backup QB which i assume will start next year. 

on a side note for the Iowa game(mainly second half), the refs made some weird calls that hurt both teams.   there was a touchdown that was reversed, even though at worst the call should of stood as is.  there was a targeting that met both criteria to be confirmed but then they reviewed and reversed that.  there were a lot of other missed calls or they called penalties on super light stuff that didnt need it.   Iowa didn't lose because of the refs and i wouldnt say the games outcome  would of changed because of the refs.(penn state got the worst of it imo)  I just hate when refs are all over the place on what they do and dont call.  the 2 calls they reversed shouldn't have been.

SC had a nice upset. Georgia looked like it struggled real bad on offense. South Carolina did very well on defense against a Georgia team that looks like they need to rethink their offensive strategy. On offense USC struggled also, Hilinski was playing on 1 leg for the whole game until he eventually had to be taken out. If he had been healthy all game without injury and everything else had gone the same I cant help but think USC wouldnt have even needed to go to OT. A few players really showed including corner Mukuamu with three picks. Overall good game. Thank you for listening to my appropriate, mature, and completely non boastful analysis of this game because of course I would never ever do something that immature and unfledged on this forum....

I feel like Iowa only plays in tough grind it out games to the very end.

Bama takes care of business. LSU is on a path to being the second SEC team in the playoff this year. Florida did a lot better than I thought they’d do.

Was typing this while drunk last night and never posted it. Idk what else I was gonna say lmao

Title: Re: College Football Thread
Post by: Thunderstormer on October 13, 2019, 10:53:24 pm
I think LSU has a good chance of beating bama.  Only way SEC is getting 2 teams in is if the other conferences eat each other up.  OSU, Wis, OK, Clem are currently worthy.  Then there are all the possible 1 loss teams at the end knocking on the door.  I still think they should of done 8 game playoff instead of 4 from the start.  Even 6 would be better.   It avoids the issue of leaving one conference out.  It allows teams like ND to get in even without being in a conference.   It allows the other non power 5 schools a chance if they have a great season.  It allows teams who only lost one game all year(possibly to one of the top 4) a chance to play. 

Grind it out games are the only games Iowa plays.  We almost never blow people out.  We don't have any star receivers or RB that can make big plays constantly.  The vast majority of Iowas wins or loses are all within one possession.  If Iowa wins most or all of the close games, it is a great season.  If we lose most, its an awful season. It is a stat they bring up every season.   I find watching ISU to be a less rage inducing.

Title: Re: College Football Thread

for this weekend:

Oregon and Washington
Baylor and Ok State
AZ State and Utah
Penn State and Michigan
ISU and TT
Maybe SC and Florida?

I find it interested that there are undefeated teams like SMU and Appalachian State, but I don't think it's too notable because of their schedule and conferences.
kinda the same thing for Minnesota, but they will be tested later in the season having to play Wis, Penn State and Iowa.

those are some good games for this weekend. 

Minn is like baylor, outside of neb, they just find a way to win those close games in the end.  we will see how good they are in the coming weeks.

On a side note, LSU, if you go off of who they played so far, should be #1 imo. 
Title: Re: College Football Thread
Post by: Risk_ on October 20, 2019, 05:06:47 am
idk what happened to Wisconsin's defense. I think they just treated the game as easy win and Illinois took advantage. big upset
I really thought Oregon and Baylor were going to lose. they each won the 2nd half.
SC almost had another upset. was a good game.
Georgia and Kentucky was weird (scoreless 1st half) but Georgia wins.
Missouri had a embarrassing loss to Vanderbilt.
Penn State seemed dominate the entire game. I think Michigan has been falling off recently. they don't seem what they were from recent seasons.


Texas just lets itself to choke games. We did not deserve to win. It seems impossible for us to stay consistent. We look worse this year than last right now. I will say this season we have too many injuries on defense and we have to play even more inexperienced CB's and safeties who don't know what they are doing. We allow sooooo many teams this year to just throw 20-30 yard passes, if not more, and no one is covering them. so annoying to watch over and over. I knew this was going to be an issue after I saw the LSU game. Our defense needs to change. We also had 2 TERRIBLE turnovers, in our own red zone, giving them free scores.

I think Wis was looking at OSU the following week, and expected IL to be easy.  3 turn over and missed FG don't help, but i expected them to blow them out regardless.

Both the OR and baylor games were pretty good. 

SC played another good game.

I know some people who are MO fans that wont be happy.

MI hasn't looked like MI in a long time.   Iowa hasn't looked like Iowa from years past either.  TBH, i am not convinced about Penn state either.   MI was one play away(dropped pass in the endzone) from tieing  late in the game.  With 2 min left or so, Penn state would of had time for a FG unless they really messed up.  Granted MI defense was playing well, so you never know.  Both had 3 timeouts.

I think MI fans need to except that they are no longer a championship caliber program like years past.  They will be solid, and some years make it to the Big 10 title and maybe even playoffs, but they wont be contenders every year like say OSU. Neb fans need to except that as well.   They haven't been that relevant for the Big 10 west since they fired voldemort. 

MN is looking fairly strong this year.   Curious to see how well they do in the next few weeks.

Both ISU and IA won today so i am happy.  I didn't get to watch either game, but some of the highlights made it look like ISU dominated from the start.  It looked like a typical Iowa game. 

I didn't watch the TX game, but i was surprised Kansas gave them such a hard time at home. 
Title: Re: College Football Thread
Post by: The Marksman on October 20, 2019, 06:50:07 pm
Me and my SC buds were joking before the game saying how the Florida game had "SEC East implications" which is something SC fans havent really been able to say since like 2014. But then we decided to go and lose the game so oh well. Once again just like Florida last year we were up at the start of the 4th and blew it at the end. Lettin up 21 points in the 4th quarter aint gonna cut it Jack. However I will say that there were some absolutely abysmal calls and non-calls made by the refs in that game. May not have changed the outcome but I definitely think it wouldve changed the score. If you want an example literally look at the link Nick just posted that guy is holding our corner quite blatantly for about 40 yards and it was clear as day even from where I was like 100 yds away much less standing 10 feet from the guy. That one at the very least should have been called back but there were others too.

I know last year I gave Nick grief for thinking they were gonna beat Bama but this year I think they have a real shot at it. Theyre playing at Bama and its cfb so anything can happen but LSU almost looks like the more complete team right now. That one will be one to watch for sure in a few weeks.

Also Joe Burrow mooned all of America on live TV and Trevor Lawrence leads the ACC in interceptions, just a few neat things to point out.

I saw some of those missed calls later on in some of the highlights.  I don't blame the coach for being pissed.  They were worse than the refs of the Penn state vs IA game the week before.

I expect some chaos in the SEC in the next few weeks.  Should be some good football.  Same goes for the Big 10.

omg Ehlinger keeps throwing the ball away

edit:
defense played a lot better but needs a lot of work still. the injuries are actually killing us. #44 gave away 40+ yard passes like 4-5 times giving them multiple scores.
Sam threw the ball away inside the 40 twice, giving them 2 free touchdowns (he had 4 ints total). we deserved to lose (again) and its so frustrating. at this point, im just hoping for a good bowl game for us. idk what happened to our defensive starters but i guess they are just gone.

Oklahoma's defense looked like Texas' defense last week against KU. big upset
OSU looked incredibly dominant
Ok State vs ISU looked like a good game

Oklahoma, Notre Dame, and Wisconsin are some trash. I don’t see Oklahoma making the playoffs after a loss like that plus a weak schedule. Notre Dame is eliminated and proved that either they are overrated or that Michigan might be better then what people think. Michigan did the same shit Georgia did in terms of running the ball a lot and destroyed ND. Wisconsin’s offense was horrible and I thought their O-Line was goood but Chase Young made them look like babies. LSU had a close but good win. We almost gave Auburn the game the entire time and took points away from ourselves. When we play Bama in a few weeks we will be battle tested and ready to go. Defense looked great against Auburn.
Title: Re: College Football Thread
Post by: Thunderstormer on October 27, 2019, 09:02:19 am
ND got smashed against a meh MI team.  They just didn't look like they wanted to be there.  Surprised TX played so poorly.    OK looked like OK of old, with no defense.  ISUs defense was pretty meh in the first half.  poor tackling and allowing 3 big plays(most of their offense in the first half) 1st loss in like 2 or 3 years in Oct.  3 uncharacteristic picks in the 4th quarter didnt help.

WI offense isn't built to put up massive amounts of points.  If they aren't dominating field position and stopping people on defense, they are in trouble.(and lets be real, you are only slowing down OSUs offense, never stopping them)  OSU is one of the better well rounded teams in the nation.  Minn is looking pretty good.  in 2 weeks it is IA at Wis, and Penn at Minn.   should be 2 good games.  IA looked like IA  vs NW.  At least the defense is apparently one of the best we ever had.  Not that it matters when our receivers are not that impressive, and the TE are still young. 

OR vs wash st was a crazy game as well.

didnt catch the LSU vs Aub game, but it looked to be close. LSU vs bama should be good.  hope bama loses.

We've always been inconsistent but this is maddening. Our D-line and linebackers are pretty good. Our defensive backs and entire offensive scheme is a complete trainwreck.

Eason has better size and arm strength than Joe Burrow. I think he is more of a developmental type of guy but I feel he will be valued higher than Burrow. Eason's ability to throw the deep ball I think edges out Burrow for sure.

Hurts is rising up draft boards rn. Dude is legit and Lamar Jackson is proving that a running quarterback can succeed in the NFL. I want Hurts to go #1 overall cause I love the guy, but as a pro prospect he is not at Eason's level yet. Things will change down the road near the combine and pro days. If Hurts can run a 4.5 or lower he is a for sure first or second rounder IMO. He has improved a ton as a passer. That offense and going from SEC defenses to Big 12 defenses also helps a lot.

yea, i heard about that ^^

and lets be real, defensive players have almost no chance at winning a heisman.  It feels like anymore it is just who is the better QB on one of the best teams.  It is a shame, because there are a lot of players who deserved it.  Mccaffery a few years ago at stanford springs to mind.  I would also say winning has too large of an impact in it as well.

should be a good day of football.

LSU deserves to be #1. 

Minn dominated most of the game vs Penn state.  The ending was a little shaky though.   At Iowa should be a good game.  Wis needs Iowa to beat them, and then Wis needs to beat them a week later.  Big 10 east champ is hoping Minn goes undefeated. 

Iowa took too long to get going offensively.   Couldnt punch in a fumble on Wis 15 or so yard line.  Silly fumble from freshmen center to QB killed a different promising drive.  That collision on the goal line was something to see when going for 2 points.   Still, i doubt the defense would of stopped wis from going down the field and trying a field goal.  That 75 yard TD pass while good for points, wasn't good for eating some clock.  Ideally they would of drove  down the field getting a TD, if they made the 2 point conversion, gone to OT.  I wasn't too impressed with taylor when it comes to heimans considerations. 

Baylor wins yet another close game.

ISU vs OK was an interesting game.  ISU had at least 2 chances in the first quarter alone to intercept for a touchdown.   You have to take those opportunities when they come.  They came back and went for the 2 point conversion  with 20? seconds left.  Sadly they didn't make it.  Considering what ISU has been for the last 15 or so  years in the big 12, they are a team to respect now.  No longer a team that is almost a guaranteed win.   Similar to Iowa this year, what could of been is painful.  They were close in all 4 of their loses.  The difference between an ok/good season and a great one is winning those.

rip Penn State tbh

Iowa and Wis looked good. Didn't see it but looks like they had similar problems before as you describe it. then again, Wis has a really good defense (except for the OSU game lol)

ISU game was crazy. That 4th quarter come back. I know it was at Norman, OK but I would go for OT maybe. idk, tough call.

LSU, Bama was great game. Bama almost came back. Honestly, the MVP was Edwards-Helaire. That guy got them critical 1st downs, in the 2nd half, by carrying defenders, spinning/juking, and just pushing for every yard. You don't see it often but that guy is incredibly tough and a power house.

Im officially rooting for LSU to win the natty. I never hated bama like some people but we just needed to see a new top dog. Joe Burrow is a machine. That guy went from a better than average SEC qb to a clear Heisman favorite over the course of a season.

Currently I think that LSU, Ohio State, Clemson, and maybe Oregon might be my guesses to go to the Playoff. As much as I despise Clemson, you cant leave them out if they win out just because the ACC is ass atm because they have no control over that. LSU and Ohio St I think are both going undefeated so theyd go. I think next you just have to decide over a Pac 12 champion or a Big 12 Champion. Still a lot of impactful cfb to go though so well see.

App State is pretty good. However theyre still only good for their conference. With the money, resources, and recruiting at SC we should never be losing to a Sun Belt team. But that being said SC hasnt been this bad since my Freshman year when Spurrier left so Im not surprised by anything.

Muschamp is gonna get another off season at least but other coaches are dropping like flies recently. I think the next to go might be Clay Helton at USC West Campus.

Well today was a good day for IA football wise.  Both won close games, that went down to the last few min of the game.  Sadly both games were on at the same time, so i missed a fair amount of both flipping back and forth. 

ISU finally wins a close game after having 4 loses for a combined 11 points. I thought ISU would of pulled away more.  Every time i flipped over they were moving the ball with ease.  The fake FG was pretty bad.   I think we hurt our kicker after the game winning kick.   
 
 Another top 10 team goes down at Iowa.  That Minn QB proved why they are one of the most accurate in the nation.  We would keep making them 3rd and long, and he would make it look easy finding or making people open with their throws.  We made them one dimensional, which normally means they are going to have a hard time but that wasn't so for Minn today.    For most of the game we couldn't get pressure on him or we were just a little too late.  Until the final drive where it was the opposite.  Despite getting less turn overs and sacks compared to last year, this defense is some how more highly ranked.  2 missed extra points and a missed FG had an impact.  Minn time management wasn't good.  They had to waste a lot of TO in both halves. If Minn played a cleaner game, they would of probably won. 

Sucks for the bama QB.  I thought i heard it could be one of those career ending injuries.  Hopefully it isn't.    this is all you will be hearing about for the rest of the season anytime bama or playoffs are mentioned.  IDK how good the backup QB is.


MSU didn't look good vs MI today.  They are like IA but worse.

while i agree LSU should be #1, my guess is based on the last week of games, OSU faced a tougher opponent so they got bumped up.  odds are LSU will move back into 1 when the final games of the season are played. 

I would not be surprised if Iowa loses fri to Neb, because Neb has everything to play for and Iowa doesn't outside of getting a 10 win season. At home vs a ranked team with the chance to go bowling on the line. 

ISU vs Kan state should be good. 

i hope bama loses to Aub.

OSU at Mich should be good.   Part of me hopes MI wins for MI gets its first win in 5? years.  OTOH i hope OSU wins so they can hopefully win the playoffs.

I feel like Nebraska and Iowa is gonna go either one of two ways. Neb gets blown the fuck out because Martinez's decision making and interceptions. Or a really good upset for Nebraska. Im sure that beating the Maryland punching bag at home will probably be a good morale booster going into this week.

as for OSU they're the best all around team right now and are gonna take it all this year, I feel like Clemson is not even close to the level the top 2 teams are playing at

Mich got stomped again.  I thought for a moment, they might be making a semi comeback then that got snuffed out. Mich just looked sloppy.  OTOH with a beat down like that, and if they handily win the big 10 championship, i think they may stay #1.  Should they be after the games LSU has played?  prob not. 


ISU didn't look good today.  I think that opening kick off for a TD deflated them.

Bama lost so i am happy. I was surprised Wis just ran away from Minn especially in the 2nd half.  Maybe the weather hampered Minn passing game.  sadly i dozed off during those games, as a tornado warning nearby caused EAS to go off, followed by all the local channels breaking in to cover it for 30+ min. 

I missed the OSU vs OK game.  Saw the final score.  surprised it wasn't 50-45. 

that georgia guy that got ejected for throwing a punch is an idiot.  game is already won and you are going to the SEC Championship and you decide to do something stupid to keep you from playing for at least 1 half.

idk anymore what is and isn't targeting.  It has been so inconsistent this year. 

edit and how about rutgers.  They kept it close for most of the game.  props to them, and kind of worrying to me regarding penn state for their bowl game.

Welp that was a very deflating and utterly disappointing season for the cocks. If you had told me at the start of the season that we would win 4 games this year and one of them would be at #3 Georgia I probably would have smacked you in the mouth. Spent my last game in the student section watching the dam Clemsonites run all over us even though it was kinda expected, cant say I wasnt hoping for some miraculous upset in the back of my mind though. Guess theres still basketball season....

Elsewhere there was some good stuff, for instance Ole Miss getting a penalty for an excessive celebration on a game tying touchdown which pushed the extra point 15 yards back which was ultimately missed. And Alabama having 12 men on the field.  Nick Saban probably burst a blood vessel from screaming when they got to the locker room. Guess they had Tua many people on the field...

I do think it's pretty funny how they need Hurts right now. pretty unlucky

and as long as no more upsets happen I predict OSU, LSU, Clemson to be in the CFP. the 4th spot is a toss up probably between Utah or the big 12 champ (OK or Baylor, prob OK) imo. If Baylor wins they will probably let Georgia back in maybe? idk, if LSU loses SEC championship I bet they will still be in the playoffs and Georgia will guarantee their spot if that happens

Post by: ~NickCole~ on December 03, 2019, 03:11:40 am
It would be cool to see 2 SEC teams again since it is the best conference but we all know LSU about to destroy Georgia by at least 20. They can't even score more then 30 against a good team. 4th spot will be interesting though.
Title: Re: College Football Thread
Post by: Thunderstormer on December 03, 2019, 03:52:48 am
I think LSU or OSU could lose and stay in, as long as it is not  a blow out against them.   I think who gets #1 depends on what kind of win LSU or OSU has.  I hope LSU wins so we dont see 2 SEC teams.  I doubt clemson will lose, but if they do, they are out. 

I think OK has a better shot if they win to get in, but Utah is still there to mix things up.  Baylor dominated the first half of the OK game, but then fell apart.  If they can do that again and keep OK from coming back, i can see them getting in. 

I still think the playoffs should be at least 8 teams.  This whole leaving at least one conference out, not to mention making it harder for non conference or some of those non big 5 conference teams from ever getting in rubs me the wrong way as well.  It also makes it possible for lets say a hypothetical Penn state's only loss to a #1OSU in a close game, but because they are in the same div, they dont get to go to the title game for one last game/win.  The vast majority of time, penn state would not be in the top 4 and would not make it.   With 8 teams, teams like that would not be left out.   I would also rather argue about teams with 1-3 loses getting in or left out than teams with 0-1(maybe 2 if it is a crazy year) loses being left out.

Joe Burrow wins the Heisman and the only guy that is close is Jalen Hurts tbh. He's put up monster numbers. Just faded off near the end of the year.

The other dudes that can even really get the invite are Chuba Hubbard, Justin Fields, Jonathan Taylor, and Chase Young.

Chase is a beast but that two game suspension eliminated him. At this point he's all hype. No way he should be ahead of Hurts or Fields tbh.
Justin Fields is good and doesn't turn it over but if you compare him to Hurts it's really no contest.
Chuba Hubbard on a bigger team is probably a household name.
Jonathan Taylor is a workhorse and has been on the verge of the Heisman conversation forever, just not having a good enough year.

Miami with a disgraceful season. Thank god it's over.

Bama disappointing loss. If they won the playoffs decision would have been interesting.

Playoffs should be similar to how the FCS does it. Would be more entertaining. Even just a 6 or 8 team playoffs would be better. Would love to see Utah and Oklahoma get a shot against a top 4 team.

Someone suggested the playoffs expand to 8 teams. The top 5 can be the champions of the Power 5 schools (ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12, and SEC) and the remaining 3 will be the wildcard teams. Teams like Utah or even UCF during their undefeated season would be a wildcard.

yeah it's a good idea. Utah is in the pac 12 tho

mainly the teams like UCF, Memphis, SMU, even Appalachian State this year (in terms of record). but the reason they aren't rated high is because of their conferences and schedule aren't the level of SEC, big 12, big 10, etc. And pretty sure they would get crushed by the top 10 if they played.

With the layout that was suggested, Utah would maybe still have a chance to make a wildcard spot. I don't even know why they didn't have the conference champions locked in to the playoffs already. It makes sense. That's how the NFL, NBA, NHL, and MLB all work. Division champs make it in to the playoffs, as well as wildcards.

I think the wildcard system would have to be carefully approached by the CFP Committee. It's only three spots and when you're forced to pick teams like: OU, Baylor, Utah, Penn State, Memphis, Minnestoa, and et cetera, it is probably very fucking hard to pick from those six or so talented teams.

The way the CFP is set up is that it is SO important to go undefeated if you want the best shot at a top-4 ranking, and even then it isn't guaranteed you're gonna get a spot *cough* UCF *cough*. Yeah, since #1 seed would most likely play #8 seed, there would be some pretty lopsided games, but at least the 5-8 seeds would have an actual shot at doing something special.

Plus, it means more college football  ;)

Haskins threw 50 TD's in that offense last year lmao. I won't deny him being great either cause he's had a ridiculous year and has tons of talent, but Hurts just had a better one stats wise. Unfortunately that loss to KState ended his Heisman campaign early. Big 12 hasn't stopped the last two Oklahoma QB's from winning the Heisman either tho.

Hurts had a comparable year to Kyler Murray and rushing wise was even better. Unfortunately it seems you need 40+ passing TD's to win the Heisman as a QB otherwise you have a way lower chance to win it. Burrow did it this year so he'll get it deservingly.

LSU better be number 1 after this game. Ohio State is good but we beaten 4 top 15 teams which is better then anyone. Ohio state highest rank win will be against number 8 Wisconsin team. Also keep in mind when we beat Texas, Florida, Auburn & Bama they were all undefeated and all ranked in the Top 10 when we played them (Georgia had 1 loss). When Ohio State played the top 25 teams they beaten they already had losses.

i dont think even if OSU blows out Wis, they will be #1.(OSU down 7 currently)   I want to see teams rewarded for having tough schedules more.  Granted you can't always help if the teams you played against are having a bad year

Georgia had several chances early to get out to a great start but they kept dropping the ball.  LSU looked really good.


OK didn't look too great imo, especially with all the turnovers that let baylor get back in the game.  Letting that baylor QB back in with that possibly concussion will spark some debate.

My impression of the 2nd half was OSU came out  to play, and Wis didn't.  OSU looked unprepared in the first half.  It wasn't until the 2nd half that they recovered from that punch to the mouth.

I think LSU should be #1 because of the schedule and beat down but i would not be surprised if OSU retained it.  Clemson will be #3 imo, and i am guessing OK 4th.

I think he can be Andy Dalton level for what he is right now. I do think though after watching his film that he can have a crazy ceiling. To pick up on Joe Brady's system and thrive the way he did was incredible. He made a big leap from last year and he looks much better. He rarely ever makes a throw that makes you think, "why???". He just knows what to do with the football. He honestly kind of reminds me of Tom Brady when I see him play. Obviously I'm not saying he will be Brady but the way he plays reminds of him plus their size is similar.

it is hard to say how good a player will be in the NFL.  Some great college players turn out to be major duds in the NFL.  A lot of the QBs who relied on running and a little passing dont last long.  They take too much of a beating.  Now if you can get a QB who is mobile but always looking to pass first, then they can do well. 

While the USC vs Iowa game is in less than 2 weeks, idk how much it will change Stanley's draft status if he ends up being drafted. His entire Iowa career is a mixed bag. He set several records at Iowa.  He has had some great games, including giving OSU it's worse loss(or one of) ever under Urban.  He beat ISU 3 times including the thrilling shootout game a few years ago.    Then he has other games that he just didn't look good in.  Lots of missed opportunities.  This year was rough, due to his play, offensive line being meh, and not having those TEs for massive mismatches in the secondary.  A lot of his sacks were coverage sacks.  While the experts predicted iowa would go 8-4, and they did better than that, i also cant help but see what could of been.  Iowa kept it close in all those loses.

I guess that final drive with no TOs with 40ish seconds left at nebraska was one heck of a way to end the regular season. Playing in a pro style offense does help compared to the QBs who never played in that system or even took a snap under center.     

Edit Rip Hayden Fry, former Iowa coach for 20 years.  He produced many great coaches and players, and revived the Iowa football program. Iowa has had 2 coaches in the last 45 years, which is very rare.

If I'm a team like Atlanta or Minnesota with a solid QB and no great backup, I'd look at Stanley in a round 5-7 spot. I think if he has a good pro day and combine he could even move into third or fourth round consideration. I wish he had a better year tho, especially compared to the past two seasons.

Same. he had potential for a better year.  If he has a good good bowl game showing, on top of the stuff above, he may be in the middle rounds.  I think he could be a pretty good back up.  The last Iowa QB, last i checked was a backup for San Fran.  I think he did oK when he played for them, but nothing great.  San Fran is certainly enjoying the best TE in football currently, and that is Kittle from Iowa.  It is not only his catching, but his blocking. 

Stanley does have the size and the ability to stay up after a hit like big ben.  That could be something that moves him up.

Wasn't expecting that big of a beat down on OK. 

OSU deserved to lose after giving clemson so many chances. Dumb penalties, 3? turnovers.  Both teams had tons of injuries.  After all of those mistakes, they still had a chance to win.


The Iowa vs USC game was entertaining.   Iowa dominated in all 3 phases, and stanley looked great minus a drive or 2 in the early 4th quarter.  it is hard to say what would happen if the USC QB wasn't hurt, but they were very one dimensional. 

ISU vs ND was sad.  it looked like i was watching usual iowa.  lots of mistakes, and some bad play calling.  had a hard time watching it.

Yea, that not a fumble call was BS.  he ran with it for several steps with firm control.  OSU could/should of won if they didn't shoot themselves in the foot, but that was a bad overrule by the refs.

At least Texas got the Big 12 its first win after its beat down of Utah.(didnt see that coming)   PAC 12 hasn't looked great this year so far.  Same for Big 12.

Mich vs bama, Minn vs Aub, and Wis vs Oregon will all probably be tough games for the big 10.  if i had to guess, Big 10 will go 1-2 out of those 3, but i can see them going 0-3 or at best 2-1.  I have my doubts bama vs Mich will even be close.  The other 2 will be more of a toss up.

I agree, I thought OSU got robbed.

Texas got some new coordinators so hopefully things start to get better. We had a good start just threw games and had a ton of injuries so we just struggled (especially on defense). The Utah was expected for me, they aren't very good imo. We should have been playing like that all season.

Only got to watch the Rose Bowl and it was another game where a big 10 team did more harm to themselves than the other team.  3 turnovers in your own territory.  missed field goal.  Dumb mistakes. 


Mich vs bama went as i thought.(looked competitive in the first half at least)   Minn vs Auburn seemed close looking at the score.   

Baylor vs Georgia from what i saw in the first quarter wasn't pretty either, but the score difference was smaller than i thought it would be. 

SEC looks to be the winner this year bowl wise. 

after that, idk.  Big 10 or pac 12 are next.  perhaps ACC. 

idk who to root for in the title game.  I usually root for non SEC teams, but LSU is looking really good and imo earned it after how they played this season.  Clemson won the last few, so i would like to see someone new.

I think Isaiah Simmons will be the X factor for Clemson. He will have to play all over the field on defense to try and stop Burrow and that offense. I also think Etienne will need to have a great game.

I still think LSU should get the win.

It woulda been a dam shame if they hadnt won that game in their own backyard in New Orleans.

Good draft for Iowa this year.  5 overall picks.   I am little surprised on where a few of them finished up, but still solid.  Sadly i dont recall any ISU players being drafted. 

Not sure how many will be signed outside of the draft  for either team.  I guess we will see how many are on the final rosters this fall, assuming there is a football season.

I don't wanna hear anything from Georgia and Florida fans about their in state rivalry ever again because USC was the only team in the SEC that voted to have out of conference games even though its a near guarantee we'd get pounded by Clemson.

Love starting the season 0-1. Frankly we didnt play too bad and it could have been worse. My attitude towards S Carolina this year is Im just gonna be thankful when and if we get wins.

Mike leach and KJ Costello really out here breaking the SEC passing yard record in their first game. Georgia was really trying their best to lose to Arkansas in the first half. Their qb situation is very questionable atm. Florida looks like they could make the jump this year and USC plays them next week. Cant wait... And I cant tell if the U is back or if Florida state is the worst team in college football. Probably a little of both.

I mean I said they were going to have a bad season so I wasn’t expecting much, we lost. It is what it is and all I can do is hope we do better.

It’s not being able to laugh at your own team, lol. You can mock me all you want but you’re being a dick.

this season is going to be really different because of covid. I think not having the fans and stuff makes it awkward. But also, oklahoma just doesn't have the offense or defense they had last year.

Title: Re: College Football Thread
Post by: Thunderstormer on October 04, 2020, 07:22:07 am
Definitely.  He will get better, and every year OK will be a contender in the big 12.  They just need to do something about their defense.  Every year it is sad.  Big 12 in general has that problem.(one of the main reasons i think their chances of wining a national championship will be small)  The odds of ISU ever winning a Big 12 champ are very slim but i am happy they no longer auto wins vs the top teams.  Much like Iowa in the big 10. They just need to keep winning these big games to improve recruitment.   

On a side note, every game i watched today was horrible in terms of discipline.  Part of me wants to blame covid but yikes.  26? penalties in the texas vs TCU game was bad.  ISU game had lots of bad ones.  The refs seemed a little slow as well in making their calls.  I agree covid has made the games a bit more awkward to watch.  I am sure for many it is awkward to play in.

I’d blame COVID cause the preseason process was all messed up. Lack of discipline has shown even in the NFL. I think it’ll get better eventually. Also I have noticed that hard counts seem much more effective.

ISU won an easy victory. 

Texas vs OU was something else.  lots of turnovers.  lots of mistakes on both sides.  lots of offense. was entertaining.   OU not being able to close out a game though with a few minutes left is concerning for them.  Had they ran instead of passed, texas may not of had time to go down and score the tying touchdown. 

LSU losing to MO and FL losing to A&M were both surprises. 

I wish i watched the bama game as that seemed like a lot of offense and little defense.(sounds like a lot of games today tbh)

Tenn gave georgia a hard time from what little i saw.

Tennessee couldn't do anything in the second half. Was hoping they could keep up the momentum but Georgia is just too good.

Bama was flat defensively. Lane Kiffin did a great job offensively and went tit for tat with Bama the whole game. Mac Jones is a stud. Najee Harris is a workhorse.

That Florida loss was disappointing but I figured that would be a tough one. Kellen Mond is the real deal. I think Florida is still gonna compete for an SEC title this year regardless.

Clemson probably has the best defense in the country now. Miami couldn't do anything at all. Our special teams was good at least.

Brock Purdy finally looked really good. Been waiting for him to get a good couple of games together. Maybe ISU can redeem the rest of the conference if Purdy can perform.

Feleipe Franks has Arkansas looking like a good team. Arkansas got super unlucky cause Bo Nix botched the snap, spikes the ball backwards which was a fumble, and then only got called for intentional grounding. Arkansas should not have lost that game.

Notre Dame gave me a scare. I thought they were in trouble for that first half there. FSU is fuckin trash tho its about damn time they suck.

UNC finally looked like the team I thought they'd be offensively. Sam Howell had his first good game this year and it all started with their run game.

Mississippi State is a big flop. 2 points. KJ Costello with 4 picks. Just shows you how off LSU is this year especially after that gross Missouri loss today.
Title: Re: College Football Thread
Post by: ~NickCole~ on October 11, 2020, 07:46:48 am
LSU has one of the best offenses but can’t win much when the defense gives up 40+ points a game. That Defense Coordinator Or our safeties needs to be replaced. It’s funny when you read comments and people saying LSU got lucky they won the natty or that the 2019 team was a fluke based on this year’s team. Legit imagine having 8 new starters out of 11, having barely anytime to work with them to build chemistry, prep them for SEC football and on top of that having to learn the new D coordinator’s playbook. Not the easiest task in the world.

That Texas Oklahoma game was pretty fun to watch. I thought Texas lost way earlier but they somehow manage to get it to OT. Arkansas got screwed of a win by the refs. My man spikes the ball backwards and isn’t called a fumble... It was funny when Dan Mullen was blaming the game on fans but should of blamed it on the RB (Davis) who fumbled the ball to give A&M possession at mid field. I thought GA and Tenn game was going to be a shootout but Georgia stepped up big time in the 2nd half on defense. The bama and ole miss game was very entertaining from a scoring perspective. Too bad the Ole miss center screwed up 2 snaps in a row and messed up Ole miss chances late in that game to keep going toe to toe with bama’s offense.

Youre welcome for satisfying the vengeful wishes of all of college football and beating Auburn.

I can only imagine this will go down as the weirdest season ever. Just in the SEC you can expect 2-3 upsets every week. Most teams are struggling to play consistently which is causing upsets all over. A team will look like one team one week and the opposite the next.

And Mike Leach is making me a sad pirate.

Iowa did it's best at throwing the game.   perfect example in how to shoot yourself in the foot over and over and over.

ISU also shot itself in the foot(2 missed FG), but not near as much.   I guess we will see, but i wouldn't be surprised if they faced each other again.  Both teams actually have a defense.

*Incoming rant*
That was absolutely pitiful, I knew something was up when basically half of all cfb analysts were picking USC for an upset. I dont know how I thought I could even be slightly optimistic anymore with this team, especially just because we beat Vandy and a bad Auburn in back to back weeks. I must have been high. Despite having arguably two first round NFL corners on that team and a D-line stacked with 4 and 5 star talent our defense was basically nonexistent. Not even a QB hurry the entire game and LSU didnt need to punt a single time. Collin Hill is good for about 30 points max each game and if his first target, which is usually Shi Smith isnt open on the first rout he becomes a deer in headlights. The only bright spot on this team of all godforsaken things is the run game and if you had told me that in the preseason I would have smacked you.

Justin Fields looked incredible and Clumpsen continues to dominate

FUCK

Well Iowa disappoints as usual. I would be surprised if they won 2 or more games. At least ISU won.  Big 12 race just got a lot more interesting with kansas state losing as well as OSU to texas.  the latter looked like a good game.  i had to go before OT started.

clemson had a scare indeed.  OSU beat down penn state as i dozed off.


Michigan is just a disappointment. I hoped they would return somewhat to their former glory.  They just cant get over the hump it seems. I will point out that MSU did get away with missed call on their final touchdown drive. (dropped pass would of lead to a 4th down deep in their territory)  Replay booth should of buzzed down, and MI should of used a timeout.

In all seriousness we had our ups and downs with him, but it was starting to be increasingly obvious that he was not the answer for any long term success. Hope he does well wherever he ends up next.

such an odd season.   Penn state and Mi are doing poorly.  MI got stomped.  NW, PU, and IU are all doing really well.  Iowa went from 2 close loses to the first 2 to stomping both MSU and Minn.  Now watch us lose to penn state. 

ISU vs Kansas state should be a good game this weekend.  Winner probably goes to the championship.

they started #7 in the pre season polls.  For such a good program, i am surprised how far they have fallen.(worse than rutgers)  With that said, i have a hard time holding this season against anyone. Players opting out or getting sick, and entire games being skipped.   There is little consistency.   This year will always have an * next to it when it comes to things like statistics.  Hopefully next year will be more of a normal year come football season.

Yea you dont have to know a ton about it to like it. When I was in school I'd meet a lot of foreign kids studying abroad and they couldnt even tell you what a first down was but theyd become huge fans and go to every game because its just fun.

And Indiana might be a real team. They might have some trouble this week against Ohio St tho.  :-X

I can’t think of a possibility where he doesn’t work out other than injury. He has every tool you want. His only issue that really bugs me is that he’s inconsistent with ball placement on deep passes. I think he’s gonna have a rookie season similar to Justin Herbert. To me he’s similar to Deshaun Watson in that he can run and be mobile, but is more dangerous as a passer and is always poised and can get to his third read. He is also a big human being and he has a great arm.

His floor is probably being Alex Smith. A solid starter with pro bowl potential.

I think Trey Lance will be a steal for a franchise with a QB thats getting older. I think Fields has closed the gap a lot on Lawrence as far as his draft stock goes but I think his decision making will give him a really hard time once some struggling NFL team puts him in during week 5 out of nowhere to try and save their season. I think it will probably be similar to a Haskins situation

Fields can struggle often against the blitz and under pressure as well. I think comparing him to how Haskins has panned out is a bit unfair, as Fields clearly has more talent. But I get what you mean.  I think there is still a fairly large gap between Lawrence and Fields and to me Lawrence just sees the field so damn well. You can see him go from one progression to the next and his pocket awareness is amazing.

Trey Lance is interesting because I usually am more cautious when it comes to players with limited experience. I hold proven players in higher regard. Trey Lance with another year to prove himself would have benefitted a lot I think. Especially if NDSU actually got to play Oregon this season. He is so good.

Yeah fields has more talent for sure. My comparison to Haskins wasn’t an insult because I think he actually could have been a good NFL QB under the correct management (although there were some rumors of off the field issues so without factoring in that)

His channel is amazing I love his videos. Also yeah I agree that Haskins could have been good with the right team. I even had him as the most talented QB in his draft class, though as players I preferred Daniel Jones and Kyler Murray at the time and even now because of their mobility.

Ohio State did nothing to convince us that they're a top 4 team in the country, but they'll get in regardless.

Brock Purdy with another awful game. Oklahoma's defense was great - never thought I'd be saying that. Matt Campbell should move on to the NFL level now, would love to have him as the Jets head coach.

Texas A&M finish the year strong. Unfortunately they won't get a chance at the playoff but they did already lose to Bama.

Clemson looking really really good against Notre Dame right now. Their defense is suffocating the run and Ian Book is getting no help from his receivers.

Post by: Thunderstormer on December 20, 2020, 07:26:56 pm
Sadly i wasn't able to watch a lot of the games yesterday.  I didnt watch OSU vs NW, but i would agree, they never looked like a top 4 team all year.  NW didnt seem like that great of a team this year either. In the west, iowa was playing the best at the end.  I wouldnt say they are great either, but better than NW at that point. 

Purdy this year just hasn't been as consistent as i thought he would be.   Lots of "why would you do that decisions".(like vs baylor)  They had all the momentum at the end though, then those 2 penalties happened and through them off.  The random duck sealed it.  up until those 2 penalties, i believed ISU was going to go and win the game leaving OU with no time left.  OU just couldnt slow them down.  Winning a game with 3 TO is very hard.  Add in meh special teams, and the game shouldn't have been as close as it was.    OU only getting 3 points in the 2nd half gives me doubts about them doing well vs other top teams.  I would have similar doubts with ISU even if they won.  They never completely felt like a top 8 team.  Im not sure the Big 12 in general is a strong conference this year.  I guess we will see in the bowl games.

I do not know much about Sarkisian, but I feel they picked him solely because he's staff from bama. But he was there for only one year? idk, could be good...could be bad.

not having Kyle Pitts hurt them a lot dude a game-changer he is lowkey like Gronk with a little bit of kittle. I expect him to go in the top 10

IDK, it is hard for me to judge ISU the same as the other top schools, or even Iowa, as they never had a team this good, or been in this position before.  This is a school that use to be slightly above Kansas level where just getting to a bowl game was huge.  Where every few seasons, they might get an upset and beat one of the top Big 12 schools. 

Now, i expect much like Iowa, they will fall off and 2-3 years have another good-great team.

was never stressing lol all knew we was finna dub

It was a good game tbh. Minnesota's defense couldn't handle the speed on the outside it seemed.

I'm excited for your Oregon game. Kayvon Thibodeaux gonna have Stroud running for his life. Would've been better if Tyler Shough didn't transfer out, Oregon could've been really good this year.

Well he hurt his ankle, so i doubt he will play or be 100%.

Was surprised to see IU dominated by Iowa.

I didnt get to watch the ISU game, but i was disappointed.  They seem to struggle on week 0.

Wis did their best to throw the game.

OK got given a scare.

I thought there would of been more scoring in the GA vs Clem.

UCLA beating LSU is great for the pac 12.

ACC in general didnt do well.

Miami crushed my soul. If we had our D-Line from last year that would’ve been a lot closer.

Didn’t expect anything from Penix and Indiana tbh. Coming off that injury figured he’d be rusty. They made too many mistakes.

Wisconsin killed my parlay so fuck them. Big Ten has to have some of the most boring awful offensive struggles ever man I swear lol.

Georgia is my pick this year to win it all so I was satisfied that they were able to tough out this game. I don’t think they’ll do very well against a team like Bama tho.

Chip Kelly finally has UCLA on the right track. Dorian Thompson-Robinson is a legit QB. They look very good.

The ACC is very weak and hopefully Florida State takes a pounding tonight. ND -7 let’s go

I was very impressed with Rutgers. My boy Langan is looking like Taysom Hill. 61 points from Rutgers is something I’d only assume their basketball team could do. Schiano is the man.

Desmond Ridder and Bryce Young are my Heisman front runners right now. My preseason bets were on Desmond Ridder, Breece Hall, Malik Willis, Bryce Young, Sam Howell, and Isaiah Spiller.

Ohio State doesnt seem that good this year.

Notre Dame seems overrated right now.

I dont think Iowa is a top 5 team like the broadcasters said.  Their offense just isnt that great.  They cant run the ball that well, and while they can throw, he takes a lot of bad sacks.
The defense is pretty good though.

ISU offense is surprisingly bad.  They brought back all those starters and just cant seem to get it together.  I figured this would of been the year ISU would of finally won.

ISU blew out a nobody, which is good i guess. 

Iowa didnt look great.  Few plays different and it would of been a lot closer.  I am not convinced they are a top 15 team. 

Bama seems to not like putting effort in.  They will lose if they keep playing like that. 

OSU needs a defense. 

Didn't watch the penn state game, but that and the MSU win are both great for the big 10.  Penn state has one of the toughest schedules in the big 10 i think.  At Wis.  At OSU, At Iowa(oct 9)

USC with the backup looked great.

UCLA losing after giving the other team 40 seconds to get a td was impressive.

I think a lot of conferences are wide open as to who will win.

Ohio State needs to bench Stroud. He's lousy. They have two great recruits on the bench behind him, and I'd be shocked if they don't give someone else a look soon.

Cincinnati scraped by Indiana with a great comeback. That game vs Notre Dame is gonna be a good one.

Fresno State is legit, man. They should've beaten Oregon a couple weeks ago. Their quarterback is balling out. He's been huge for them. That drive to beat UCLA was some Hollywood shit.

Bama hasnt looked great like usual.  I figured they were due a loss at some point.   They are still a top 5 team, due to all the talent they have and coaches.

Ark vs old Miss was a fun game to watch.  Not a lot of defense.

I didnt get to watch TX vs OK as the cable company is fighting with the people who run abc.  Looked like a fun game.

As for Penn state vs Iowa.   Where do i start.   Game management at the end of both halves was pretty bad for Iowa.     Iowas offense didn't look great, but it is somewhat hard to blame it on them.  Nearly EVERY time Iowa has a big play, a penn state player would be injured.  Pretty convenient to get a free timeout as soon as Iowa gets momentum.(i saw a lot of flopping in the old miss game too for free timeouts) The play calling for Iowa wasnt great.  Outside of a QB sneak, why are we trying to run an option play with the least mobile person in america?  Penn state could not stop QB sneaks, so why not do more of them.  Our QB even with nothing but grass in front of him, refused to take it.  Instead he would run backwards where he would be caught.

The defense isnt that impressive either.  They give up so many large chucks in their zone defense.   Iowa has always struggled against teams who have a very mobile QB and can throw very accurately.(which is what all the top teams have)   The home crowd made a big difference, causing numerous penalties.  Idk if it was the audio settings that the broadcasters used, but that crowd sounded louder than any other game i watched today.

Both Offense and defensive lines for Iowa while good, are still too inexperienced.  They are too inconsistent.  Next year is when i expect them to be more dominant, and hopefully have a more consistent running game.(then again, look at what happened with Iowa state when they brought back all those starters)

Anyways, i am not convinced Iowa is #3 in the nation.  They are use to playing in messy close games, but they didn't look good. 

I do fear that in the coming years, the fake "im injured" stuff will be used more often.  I see it more year after year.  It is footballs version of the flop you see in other sports.  I hope if it does get out of hand, they try and do something to stop it.  I want to say penn state was the better team and would of won had clifford not been hurt.  Of course, what would have the game looked like had Penn state not had so many free timeouts.  Mich state used a similar tactic a while back at iowa, and it worked out for them.

Such a crazy year, who knows who will make the playoffs anymore.  No one looks great except for maybe georgia.  We will see if ohio state is legit in a few weeks.

Post by: Fartknocker on October 10, 2021, 10:10:50 am
I think Matt Corral is the new Heisman favorite after today, as well as the front-runner for the #1 pick in the draft.

Texas can't catch a break, man. That was hard to watch. Spencer Rattler is a certified BUM. Dude should've been benched a couple weeks ago. Couldn't believe people thought he was the Heisman favorite and the consensus #1 pick in the draft going into this year. He has shown to be inconsistent and reckless. He should look to transfer now or just go into the draft this year. A team will take a flier on his talent, but mentally I think that kid is a shitshow.

Alabama ran into a very good Texas A&M on the road. They have a very good defense and their offense finally looked to piece themselves together. No idea how this team lost to Miss State tbh.

Iowa is old reliable right now. They're in a great position with an easy schedule the rest of the way. Penn State got screwed losing Clifford, even if he wasn't playing that great before he got hurt. Their backup was awful. Sucks cause the kid played in my town at DePaul Catholic. Was a stud there. Definitely wasn't ready.

Kentucky is a legit squad.

Michigan had me believing they were a top 5 team but after that Nebraska game I don't know anymore. They won me a shit ton of money though so it's all good.

The only issue with Georgia is that they’re inconsistent at quarterback. I picked them to win the national championship this year figuring JT Daniels would figure it out and have a great year. I think Kentucky gonna be a good test.

Post by: Thunderstormer on October 10, 2021, 06:22:45 pm
Georgia is a lot like Iowa, great defense(better than Iowa) with inconsistent offense.  They suffer the possible same problem Iowa does, can they put up points if they get into a tight game or a shoot out. 

Kentucky will be a good test. 

Nebraska is probably the best non ranked team.  They played 2 top 10 teams and gave them all they can handle. Unless we view those 2 teams to be overrated.  Im not sold on OK yet.  Maybe if they use the other QB, that will change.

Iowa is iowa, which means even the easiest games will be the ones they lose.  iowa is the team that will play the best teams down to the wire, and then find a way to lose to a peewee team.

Penn states backup QBs all transferred i believe, so their next best option was that guy.  That was just a horrible environment to come into as a freshmen.  Hostile crowd against that defense.

That OU v TX game was just heartbreaking. I'm an OklaSt. fan so I was rooting for Texas. Was at work during the game and my coworker is a huge Texas fan. He asked me what the score was like 20 minutes after it was set to start and when I told him 14-0 for Texas he got so hyped. Told everyone who was wearing an OU shirt "Hook em horns" lmfao

I don't think OU should be in the top 4, maybe I'm a bit biased as an OklaSt. fan but I don't think they're the same team they were in years past. How are you going to give a top 4 spot to a team that has barely won their last couple games? The last couple games they didn't lead until what the last few minutes? Also, Spencer Rattler is dogshit imo, dude has no awareness and decision-making skills. Probably takes him 30 minutes to figure out what he wants at the McDonald's drive-through.

Anyone can win.  I have no idea if Iowa will run the table to make the title game.   Who knows what will happen in the big 10 east.  We will see who is real in the next month or so.  Bama has to win out(including against georgia) unless absolute chaos happens.  OK is just looking for some way to lose.  idk about Cin being a top 3 team either, but who knows.

Cincinnati is the best group of 5 team by far. They deserve to get a chance in the playoff if they can finish their schedule cleanly. They have multiple high level NFL prospects and their defense is legit. Everyone else has lost anyways so who else goes ahead of them?

Well that goes back to the age old question, should a team that played a far harder schedule and only lost say one game jump ahead of an undefeated team with an easier schedule.  Only having 4 possible spots makes this far harder, since there will probably be several 1 lose teams that could argue they should be ahead at the end of the season.  Only having 4 slots was a stupid decision.  I cant wait for them to finally expand it. 

My comment about them being #3 was hitting on the other point, where you could swap any of the top 8 or 10 teams outside of georgia right now, and i wouldnt consider it wrong.  No one has played consistently enough, or looked great enough to make me  think they are for sure one of the top teams.

Tenn hung in there with Bama but couldnt get any stops.

Oklahoma got away with that hand off at the end of the game.  Play should of been called dead.  Ill say it again, no one looks great this year.

Ill going in and beating Penn state was very surprising.  Iowa despite having an anemic offense showed that they were vulnerable to a strong run game.  Ill capitalized. 

ISU vs OSU was pretty good.   That unsportsmanlike conduct call might have been one of the worse in football history.  I wasnt sure on that spot at the end of the game, since that player looked like they were on top of their teammate, but there were too many bodies in the way to overturn it.   OSU receivers made some great catches. 

OSU looks like the team to beat in the Big 10.

Purdue naturally loses to Wis.

Nov in the Big 12 and Big 10 should be really entertaining.

Georgia in my opinion is far and above the rest of the teams mainly because of that defense. Once their offense gets healthier they will be alot better. Cinn and Oklahoma don't look like the #2 & #3 teams in the country. Cinn had their worst game against a 1-5 Navy team. Oklahoma has looked like trash all year struggling against the easiest teams on their schedule. They should honestly move Bama and OSU to #2 & #3 even with 1 loss. Although they both have 1 loss Bama's was by a last-second FG and PSU was vs the #10 team in the country. Wake Forest might actually go undefeated but they probably won't have a single big win on their resume if they do. The taunting penalty in the OSU vs ISU game is just shocking. It seems like the NCAA & the NFL are trying to ruin football more and more each year. At this point idk what league is softer the NBA or the NFL. I excited to see who comes out on top in the Michigan vs Michigan State game next week and towards the end of the year. The big 10 or the Sec might have 2 teams in the CFP when the season is over. That Penn State vs Illinois game was brutal to watch but man that was a great win for Brett Bielema. That game gave me PTSD of the LSU vs Texas A&M game from a few years ago.

Post by: Thunderstormer on October 25, 2021, 12:31:18 am
My biggest concern with Georgia is there offense.  If they get into some sort of shoot out, can they keep up.  Can their defense shut down the super high scoring offenses every week?

Big 12s only chance is if they have an undefeated i think, unless things get really crazy in Nov.  Sec and Big 10 have the highest chances of getting 2 teams in.  Because Iowa isnt great, even though they are likely to still represent the west, it is possible 2 teams from the East get in if they play well and the other team only has 1 loss.

OSU is #2 i think.  They are playing the best out of anyone in the Big 10. 

That win was a great for Ill.  Great for their program going forward.  There is part of me that enjoys the old style of OT, but i understand why they went this route.    It is still better than the NFLs.  You get to see who the better team really is.

The flopping crap is far worse than this latest taunting thing they are going after.

ISU lost.  I couldnt watch that to see what happened.

OK actually blew someone out.

Iowa looked impressively bad on offense after a byweek. They are getting worse as the year goes on.   They will be lucky to be .500 in Nov.  Pathetic.  They show up for the big games, and sleep during the others.

Oregon will probably be in the top  5 or 6 in the CFP rankings.  Could even be ahead of OSU due to the head to head win.

Curious to see where Cin will be, and where they will be if they run the table.

Yea, their chances of getting in outside a ton of shake up ahead of them are slim.  They would have to utterly dominate their opponents to have a chance.

Ok way back in 8th despite being undefeated isnt surprising. 

Im not sure about bama being #2.

The other teams are about where i expect them except for Iowa.  They arent playing like a top 25 team.

Should be a fun Nov.

The committee purposely unranked SMU and Houston so that Cincinnati has no chance of beating another top 25 team, thus preventing them from advancing in the rankings. It's a blatant slap in the face to the group of 5. Cincinnati has more NFL talent than most teams in the top 15 (and more than Michigan State who is top 4). They literally just played Georgia last year and lost in a very close contest on a last second field goal. This years team is even better than last year and has arguably the best road win in the country against Notre Dame.

Cincinnati doesn’t deserve it, if you don’t play in a power 5 and barely sneak by navy you don’t belong. I hope they add more teams to the playoff in the future though

i was a little surprised neither one was ranked.



I believe they will be expanding the playoffs in the next few years.  Only doing top 4 was dumb.  You always leave at least one conference out, and you make the group of 5/non affiliated teams have super low chance of ever getting in.

The issue with expanding the numbers is nobody wants to watch the #1 or #2 schools just beat up on the 7th and 8th seeds. Just seems like a waste of games and a chance for many of these NFL bound players to get injured. Similar to how many NFl bound players would skip the bowls their colleges get accepted to.

In a year like this, anyone can beat anyone.  There were discussions before about giving #1 or #1 and #2 having a game off basically while the rest played.

Plus, how many players would pass up a chance at a national title to skip for the NFL?  Outside of preventing them from being injured in game, would it help their draft stock?

I dont recall a #1 seed winning it all yet.  i wouldnt say that a top seed would dominate the lower ones all the time.(This does depend how far they expand it)

FCS does a 16 team playoff. No reason FBS can't pull off something similar too with smaller numbers

With how crazy the NCAA basketballs tourneys are,  i wouldnt be surprised if football was any different. 

The biggest concern with adding too many teams, is overlapping with NFL playoffs and superbowl.  Unless they move games up before the holidays.  Personally, i am not opposed to 12 or 16 teams.  I think 8 will be what they go to first.

I hope they do 6 or 8. No automatic bids or any of that shit, not enough teams for that unless they really do 12 teams

Not trying to see Alabama just shit on whoever the 8th seed is. The only way it could happen is if the weather is ass, and I'm pretty sure they'll play inside a dome, or someshit think at max six would be fine.

I'd be fine seeing football games at the highest level of FBS football. Anything can happen. The odds of a 1 seed vs an 8 seed in football are a lot closer than a 1 seed vs a 16 seed in basketball. It isn't even close really.

Havent kept up with the thread that much this season. Ill just say that although USC is doing what we do, you know...sucking. It is an absolute dream seeing Clemson shit the bed so bad this year. I wont say it wholly makes up for S Carolina sucking but its close. Itll be a miracle for them to win the ACC at this point and even if they do theyre not going to the playoff. Love it.

Georgia is looking like the best team this year. Their defense is amazing and their offense is capable of having bad games, but for the most part has performed this season.

And obviously im rooting for Cincy to win the natty. However much of a long shot it is.

Sad the seasons already almost over.

A lot of crazy games yesterday.  Looks like a lot of the top teams survived. 

Neb special teams let them down.  Probably one of the toughest schedules in the country.  LSU should of kicked the FGs, but i understand why they went for it.  Tulsa was close to making it a 2 pt conversation away from tying.

I didnt see the MSU vs purdue game, so idk if they dominated them, or if it was MSU hangover.

Another #9 team lost in wake forest.

Ill beating another top 25 team is amusing.  Big 10 west is a mess.  Wis is the most deserving team i guess. 

Baylor lost to TCU, making the Big 12 race crazier. 

Georgia looked good.

Iowa survived NW which is the worst team in the big 10.  ISU beat up Texas.

Texas is going to be the kansas of the SEC.

Not surprised OK lost.  They were overrated just like iowa.


Iowa state had a great comeback.  The TT kicker deserves props for kicking a 62 yard fg to win.  Probably was good from 65+ yards.

OSU looks like the best team in the Big 10.


Georgia looks good.  Bama enjoyed its byeweek.

Oregon had a rough loss and MSU got deleted.

Cinn dominated which is good for them.

ISU cant go under center and get a few inches.

Should be a bunch of fun rivalry games this week.  I hope Wis wins so iowa doesnt have to face OSU.

Cincinnati just blew out their toughest remaining opponent I think they’re in.

CJ Stroud is the only one I didn’t bet to win the Heisman so this sucks. His receivers should all get it. Best receiving corps in the entire country and it isn’t even a little close.

Notre Dame might be making a case too 👀

Notre Dame is making a case with how they are playing in the second half of the season. However, that won't matter if Bama can beat Auburn and Georgia.

Auburn gave the game away.  I hope georgia blows them out.

Mich finally wins.  Iowa has a better chance against them than OSU, tho i dont think the odds are great.

Im glad Iowa helped Neb make their new record.

Breece hall set the new rushing record so that is cool.

Im happy OK lost to OSU.

Cant wait to see them be average to mediocre in the SEC.  Texas will be the new kansas of the SEC.

S Carolinas going bowling, miracles really do happen. Oh and if it wasnt already clear I fucking despise Clemson.

Georgia should have this year in the bag however boy will it be funny if they blow it.

Potentially a few newcomers to the CFP so that will be good to see.
Title: Re: College Football Thread
Post by: Fartknocker on November 29, 2021, 02:20:02 am
Georgia
Michigan
Cincinnati
Alabama

Oklahoma State
Notre Dame
Ohio State
Baylor

That’s my top 8 right now. I think Big 12 winner gets in if Bama loses.

Lincoln Riley to USC makes sense. Oklahoma will have a much lower chance of making the playoff every year in the SEC. He gets a lot of recruits from California already. A lot of kids will follow him from Oklahoma to USC. He can get first dibs on most of the California talent while at USC, and run the PAC-12 if he succeeds.

Odds are good that a #1 seed will finally win it all.  I guess we will see if anyone has a chance.  Ohio state was my best bet at beating them, then they laid an egg.

Ok state is a pretty good team, if bama loses, i think they should go in.  Im not sold on ND. 


If iowa manages to win(doubtful), i wonder if no big 10 teams will make it.

Riley going to USC makes sense.  It is a weaker conference, and if he can turn it around, it will be the "new" OK of the conference.  Meaning they will be in most of the championship games and fighting for a spot in the CFP.  A lot easier competition than in the SEC.

We're getting a rematch of Bama vs Georgia again most likely.

Although I assume they'll give Alabama the 1 seed so it'll be:

Alabama
Michigan
Georgia
Cincinnati
