:lol: At people saying Josh Dobbs is a top 10 quarterback.

Simple Fan 09-10-2016 12:35 PM

Louisville's Lamar Jackson is a bad man. Dude had 610 total yards and 6 TD last night against Syracuse. Actually hurdled a guy before scoring one of the TDs.

Simple Fan 09-10-2016 01:43 PM

Has 13 total TDs through 2 games, more than any other FBS team as a whole.. Didn't even play the second half of the first game.

Nah, he's black.

Not really to many good games today. Tennessee and Virginia Tech will be play inside Bristol Motor Speedway and is expected to break attendance records with over 150,000 tonight at 8:00 PM EST.

Can UConn just foldup the football program now?

Team's down 4 with 17 seconds to go and the coach tried to call a timeout on 2nd and goal............they had none left.

Simple Fan 09-10-2016 10:34 PM

156,990 is the official attendance for the Battle at Bristol which is a record. Tennessee up 24-14 on Virginia Tech with 11:29 Togo in the 3rd quarter.

Thought UConn would get better with Louisville leaving the AAC but I suppose Houston pretty much took over where the left off. Would really like to see UConn move to either the ACC or Big 10. Would like to see Cincinnati in the ACC as well but feel like the Big 12 will snatch them up.

ClockShot 09-12-2016 08:10 PM

Chatter going around is that UConn is supposed to make a pitch to the Big 10.

Simple Fan 09-13-2016 02:37 PM

Be good for them in basketball. Football not so much but they do seem like they would fit the Big 10. Would put the Big 10 at 15 schools and would probably look to add another to get to 16. ACC has 15 but Notre Dame isn't full time in football.

Big 12 probably try to make a move first. Houston and Cincinnati would put them back to 12 and Cincinnati would put a school a bit closer to West Viginia. Also talk of USF, UCF, and BYU.

Frank Drebin playing cornerback. Elmer Fudd at QB backed up by Danny DeVitto. Pretty funny stuff.

Big game tomorrow, Florida State @ Louisville. Going to be tough but when you got Lamar Jackson you got a chance.

Simple Fan 09-17-2016 01:46 PM

Louisville up 35-10 at the half. Jackson back at it, already has 3 rushing TDs and a passing TD. 17 total TDs in 2 and half games.

Simple Fan 09-17-2016 04:03 PM

Louisville won 63-20 expected a much closeer game. Was 63-10 before the started left the game. Jackson has to be the Hiesman favorite right now.

Tom Guycott 09-17-2016 10:24 PM

I've always liked J.R., but tonight, I hate seeing his ass on that sideline. Especially consoling Mixon after doing that "drop the football before you ACTUALLY score" shit that should have negated that OK score.

I'll be a Jim Ross fan again tomorrow. Go Buckeyes.

Lot of Sooners left laying on the field for trainers' examination tonight.

As for that Louisville/FSU game: Seminoles suck. Not saying that as a hater, but someone who wonders how they keep getting ranked so high and the team they field really hasn't been top ten for years.

You'd think they were in the SEC.

Tom Guycott 09-18-2016 12:38 AM

Also forgot Coach Stoops was a local boy.

Tom Guycott 09-23-2016 12:51 AM

I got a response about FSU (assuming that's who you meant- you left no context)

They got a lot of flukey wins and backdoor victories: they didn't really play like a team that just kept getting magically ranked #1 or #2. And the first year of the playoff system, had it not been in place, they would have automatically gone to get dismantled by Alabama for the National title instead of getting dismantled by Oregon for the right to play an Ohio State team who handed Alabama their ass.

Even as much as I hate the "SEC is better than everybody in perpetuity" argument people make, at least 'Bama played like a top contender consistently. The Seminoles didn't. Being upvoted isn't the same as being good. Being Kings of the ACC is akin to being the whatever-est guy in the room. Ask Boise State how many potential championships they were snubbed out of because they "didn't play anyone" to end up ranked above #5, but FSU can continue to fail their way upwards doing precisely that.

Simple Fan 09-24-2016 08:10 PM

Didn't expect Tennessee to come back against Florida. Fliped it and was watching Duke beat Notre Same. Fliped it back after it was over and Tennessee had erased a 21 pt deficit in one quarter.

Simple Fan 09-25-2016 05:00 PM

LSU fires Les Miles and OC Can Cameron. Ed Orgeron named interm head coach.

Clerk 09-27-2016 12:31 PM

O-H-I-O The Ohio state university sucka! Rank No.2 but we smacked Bama when we played them. With a 3rd string btw. Who is actually a beast tho. Wish the Browns drafted cardale. :)

Simple Fan 10-02-2016 12:06 AM

Damn. Clemson 42 Louisville 36. Was a hell of a game though and really shouldn't hurt Louisville a whole lot.

poopfromweiner dude 10-02-2016 12:23 AM

Will probably hurt them a whole lot the first week of December when they're not playing and a bunch of other 1 loss teams are in their conference 'ship game

Clerk 10-05-2016 11:10 AM

these teams dont matter. O-H-I-O THE Ohio State University gonna win it all baby!!!!! boi you look like a motherafuckin OHHHHHHH

Only dropped to 7 with a fairly easy schedule. Have a big matchup with Houston at the 2nd to last game of the year which should be good. Kentucky sucks but I imagine they will give us a good game. I feel like the ACC could get 2teams in though, as I think the Big 12 and PAC 12 will all end up beating one anothe up.

Simple Fan 10-05-2016 12:01 PM

If Jackson wins the Hiesman and they only have the one loss to Clemson who goes undefeated I feel like Louisville could get in. SEC will probably be Alabama one loss or not. Big 10 either Ohio State or Michigan I'd say who ever win their game. PAC 12 isn't as strong this year and I don't think Washington will win out. Big 12 is weak this year as well and I feel they will beat each other up and not have a playoff team. Leaves Houston who if they do beat Louisville and go undefeated should make it in from the American. Never know what's going to happen though and that's what great about college football and this playoff now.

poopfromweiner dude 10-07-2016 11:49 AM

How is Louisville going to get in dude,,

It'll take 2 bad losses for them to jump Clemson, the SEC champ will always get in, Ohio st or Michigan is a lock...

1 spot left for Louisville, Big 12 or Pac 12 team or more likely the next best SEC team

It's possible but you're going to need a lot of legit contenders to have 2 losses. A win vs Houston won't look as good comparatively to some of these notorious programs who play real schedules

poopfromweiner dude 10-07-2016 11:51 AM

And if OSU and Michigan run the table the loser of that game will still be ranked ahead of Louisville. #7 the first week of October is cool, but they're only going to be getting passed by more quality 1 lossers

Simple Fan 10-07-2016 12:36 PM

Like I said I don't think the PAC 12 or Big 12 will get a team in the playoff. Michigan and Ohio State could both get in but I don't see it and I feel one will lose 2 games. I think the Houston game will be huge. Especially if Houston is still undefeated. I feel like a loss to Clemson(a close one at that) is not all that bad of a loss. Clemson should run the table and be 1 or 2 by the end of the season. Really feel like the ACC gets two teams in and Louisville not playing championship week could be a blessing . Also if Jackson wins the Hiesman and Louisville's only loss it's undefeated Clemson they have to put Louisville in the playoff. This is all just speculation as anything can happen with a lot of season left.

I expected to drop a lot more than 7 and felt real optimistic when I seen the ranking. Feel like Louisville will be the best one loss team if they win out as well. A loss to Clemson is better than say a Washington losing to any PAC 12 team. One loss Michigan or Ohio State could beat them out but I don't think Michigan is going to be undefeated by the time the play Ohio State. Tennessee could surprise and be in it as well. Also I have no doubt that if Houston beats Louisville and is undefeated they will get a spot.

Simple Fan 10-08-2016 05:42 PM

Notre Dame vs NC State was a mess wih the hurricane. Pouring down in the Viginia Teh/North Carolina game as well but not as bad. Houston losing right now to Navy. Tennessee losing to Texas A&M.

Simple Fan 10-08-2016 08:16 PM

Damn Tennessee with another comeback. Were down by like 2 touchdowns and I stopped watching to watch Central Intelligence and now its in 2nd OT tied at 38.

Simple Fan 10-08-2016 08:24 PM

They lost that one though. Texas A&M is 6-0

Tom Guycott 11-26-2016 04:54 PM

The Game was closer than it should have been. Lots of Buckeye mistakes and lots of not capitalizing on Xichigan mistakes. Defense uncharacteristically looked like a freakin' sieve. And don't get me started on Durbin's kicking. Win shouldn't have been so ugly.

Also, here is where I become a fair weather Sparty fan. Need them to kick the shit out of Penn State today.

Frank Drebin 11-27-2016 02:52 AM

Now, I hate the living shit out of Penn State for that whole....ya know....thing....but just playing devils advocate here, OSU thinks they're going to the playoffs but they aren't even playing in their conference title game?? With them being #2 prior to this week, seems like it's a lock, right?

Clerk 11-27-2016 02:58 AM

PSU winning it all baby suck my big Irish balls baby!!

Tom Guycott 12-05-2016 11:59 PM

I'm being the worst fan this year, but with a team that has constantly showed exactly how much talent they lost to the NFL and graduation after last season, I'm not entirely sure the Buckeyes have it in them to make it through Clemson, let alone go and hang another 40-something points on The Tide*.

I have a feeling there is going to be some sort of re-examination of the whole conference champion thing after this season because of the circumstances of the Big 10. I mean, I thought this was one of the reasons why everyone was falling all over themselves to make these 14+ team super conferences with two divisions and a championship game at the end (the other being ranked teams sliding from being "idle"). If Ohio State loses either one of the next two games, we will have to hear how Penn State "could have done better" and "deserved to be there" ad infinitum in spite of being a two loss team. They really have to step up major.

Of course, an 8 team playoff would have negated this and most of the rest of the Big 10 clusterfuck. One extra game. And don't keep pushing into January: play that shit like NOW instead of some of the nonsensical lesser bowl games. I still say making it 16 would be better, as it would also push the "Top 25" concept back into a way more relevant standing. Who gives a shit about who is ranked #19? Makes more sense if they actually had something to keep working for. A team that starts the year ranked #22 could have a chance to up their prominence instead of simply hoping for a chance to be playing in the Car Quest Whogivesashit Bowl.

*assuming Alabama beats Washington. Shouldn't assume this, considering what I said about playoffs year one. Washington is kinda iffy, though. They could pull off a win IF they don't shoot themselves in the foot. They can potentially let mistakes pile up and take themselves out of the game; something that Alabama will surely capitalize on.
