Why would anyone feel the need to gloat about beating Cal?  :biggrin:

As history proves, it's one of the easiest things to accomplish in college football, and it looks to only be getting easier.



I think aside from Stanfurd, this is going to be a long fucking year with maybe one more win on the docket at one of the Arizona schools, and finishing with the firing of Coach Wilcox...I like the guy and all, but man, along with team integrity a few wins would be nice. Very uneasy about Cal's next five years with a new coach, a new conference, and a gutting to our recruiting budget. Yikes man...

I wish I would have watched it now. The highlights on YouTube are pretty nuts. Hard to believe that Arizona was up 17 to nothing over USC at home.

I turned it off and went to bed when it was 17-14 and it looked like USC would pull away for the second half.  I guess the game stayed pretty competitive. USC has no defense, they aren't going to win the big one unless that unit improves.

The Texas Oklahoma game was another good one.

Nice to see ND get stomped

Lots of 10-25 ranked teams lost.  Should be a nice shake up to the rankings but I'd guess other than Oklahoma moving up, maybe not so much movement at the top.

Still baffled by that one.



Really liked Cal putting up 40 on OSU with a freshman third string QB, let's develop that kid.

Another 1:00 game this Saturday. The home schedule this year really blows...I miss watching games under the lights.

Lonestar, Cal's got a great chance to beat Utah at home this week, I think. I can't believe the odds makers are giving the Utes a 2 touchdowns, that's crazy given how bad Utah's offence has been this year and considering Cal's PPG average. I think there is a real chance that Cal either trounces Utah, or squeeks one by in a low scoring game.

While PSU had a couple night games already (and I believe one more) the Big 10 really fucked up their negotiations with Fox to put ALL the top Big 10 games at noon (eastern).  So PSU vs. OSU, PSU vs. UM, and OSU vs. UM will all be at noon and those are the top 3 Big 10 games this year (and usually, most years).  Granted, OSU/UM is a historically noon game, but still.  Apparently Fox has done well by doing it via ratings, but it sucks for the fans. Going to suck for the West coast teams joining having to play at noon EST for their big games.

The disconnect between the teams and the fans on this issue is kinda funny. The teams all love the noon kickoffs, and the fans love the ambiance of night games!  :lol

My alma mater Appalachian State is hosting one of our newest rivals Coastal Carolina under the lights tomorrow night.  Should be a highly entertaining.  They don't call it the Fun Belt for nothing.

I don't think PSU players like the noon kick offs.  THey are historically sloppy in first halves of noon games under the current coach.

If there's anything positive that comes out of the conference re alignments, it's hopefully no more PSU vs UMass type of games. There's literally no reason besides money to play this game.

Well, it was homecoming, but it's a non competitive game.  For some reason I thought Umass was actually the lower divison like Delaware is, but they moved up like 10 years ago and actually are independant.  But still, the game was stupid and PSU paid them 1.5 million to take the beating just so PSU can get an extra home game and rake in the money.  This is totally common in FBS, but it really needs to go away.  There's so many more teams to play than something like that. 

And funny enough, winning 63-0 only knocked them back a spot in the rankings  :lol I understand why that happened (Washington with a big win) and things will be setlled this week when PSU plays OSU.  But it's all just too much about the money and not enough about competition.

Rant over.  Big game coming up.  College gameday will be there in Columbus.  THIS game is what I love about college football.  Top 10 teams going to battle, both undefeated, and both not really tested.  It's a toss up in my head although Franklin hasn't shown he can beat OSU beyond a fluke play so I would pick OSU, but this may be the best PSU to play OSU under Franklin.  The defense is just so good (check that, they dominate every statistical catagory) that I expect them to be in the game until the end. This is going to be on my mind all week.

I really like Penn State's chances against Ohio State.  I am certainly rooting for them.

That Washington/Oregon game was 10 pounds of fun in a 5 pound bag.  Just my kind of game.

You guys better look out for North Carolina.  If they handle their business, they will likely wind up in the playoff.

I'll +1 that... 

I'll also say that the WV v/s Houston game on 10-12 was one of the best football games I've seen as far as last-minute plays are concerned.

It was hard to watch that PSU OSU game.  I knew PSU's offense was going to be put to the test, but I didn't expect our first year QB to be THAT bad.  He looked pathetic.  It didn't help that PSU's offensive play calling was mind boggling.  Like lets run it on 3rd and 14, but pass on 3rd and 1 and then wonder why the team didn't covert a single 3rd down the entire game.  I was pretty sure that if PSU lost, it would be due to coaching and I still stand completely behind that.  Our QB looked like he was stil in high school, but it was 100% on the coaches for putting it all on him and not giving more pass plays to the RB or TEs.  Trying to make plays with our poor WR makes no sense.  Using an option play makes no sense, he's not a threat to run.  Basically all the offensive questions from the first 6 games got exposed by OSU.  Good on them for doing that, but it was hard to watch.  The PSU defense is incredible though.  They kept the team in the game and had some incredible stops. 

There's no reason to think PSU won't win out besides the Michigan game.  The big 10 is just not good besides the top and there's no reason to think PSU will be competitive against UM based on that OSU performance and our recent history against UM.  But every other game should be a W.  10-2 would be a great season for most schools, but doing it again after last year and not getting a win against UM or OSU is going to leave a very sour taste in most PSU fans mouths.

I'm SHOCKED Michigan would cheat!

https://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/38700739/michigan-staffer-eyed-center-elaborate-scouting-scheme-sources-say

This story has gotten juicier and jucier each day this week.  Looks like Michigan also may have helped South Carolina win games against Clemson and Tennessee to end last season which helped Michigan make the playoffs. That accusation is wild to me, but there's a lot of evidence of this apparantly.  TCU was aware of Michigan stealing their signs and was able to spend weeks changing it up to have their upset win against them in the playoffs.  The evidence and accusations are really mounting up against them.

And I've also confirmed my plans to attend the PSU vs. Michigan game in 2 weeks with my college friends  :metal I would love nothing more than PSU to win that game and boo the fuck out of Harbough the cheater.
