    Once the Gopher RB got injured it was over. PJ's crew put up a good fight though.

    ^ I think that Minnesota will probably be better than projected. They may even meet the Buckeyes again late in the year. I wouldn't rate Wisconsin a lock for the West division.

    Ohio St had a freshman QB playing on national television in his first start. Nonetheless, they showed a lot of big play capability. What worries me is that defense. I can say the same thing I said to my best friend late last year: "Alabama would score 70 points on this defense." They've got high caliber recruits on that side of the ball too, but if they don't get that fixed, they'll roll through the B1G undefeated and get smashed in the Playoff.

    Gopher running back is out for the season. That is going to hurt.

    ^ It looked like his knee bent backward a little. Man that fuckin' hurts. I did that when I was twelve. I couldn't put weight on it for about ten or fifteen minutes. Fortunately, being a kid, I bounced back and was fine a half hour later.

    And now watching Bamalama@MyYammy.

    We (Miami) will put up a fight in the first quarter, but the final score will be 55-10.

    God I hate that fucking tomahawk chop and movie western music. Is there anything more obnoxious in college football?

    Just remembered, the Hurricanes thought they had a turnover and brought out the Chain started their usual bullshit celebration. They're down by 27 or some points and they're celebrating a turnover that gets called back. They ended up shoving the chain up their collective you-know-what. Dumbasses.

    Anyone watching Oregon vs. Ohio State? Looks like a pot boiler.

    I'm watching it, but it's hard. No ability to stop the run. Absolutely zero pass rush. Wasn't expecting this kind of drop off this year.

    Disregard my previous post. Ohio can't stop Oregon.

    I quit watching when Oregon went up 35-21. You are absolutely right about their D. Last year, I argued that their D was much better than what you said it was but the championship game proved you were right. They need a lot of work. Their secondary, especially, has been troublesome for a few years now.

    Funny thing is, when you look at the game stats, OSU looks like they should have won. They led the quackers in total yards, passing yards, yards per play, first downs, total plays, time of possession, and had less punts. But they beat us in rushing yards, 3rd downs (50% vs 40%), 4th downs (100% vs 40%), and penalties. Plus, Stroud threw an interception.

    What I didn't understand was why, during their 2nd possession in the 2nd half, they abandoned the run. My brother & cousin both said it was because they couldn't run against Oregon. What? In that series, Henderson ran three times for 30 yards! And then after the false start, they threw four straight passes and turned it over on downs. WTF? They did struggle with the run, at times, but Williams averaged 5 yds/carry. Henderson had a lot of short runs, averaging 2 yds/carry. But, as I said, he had three runs in that series for 30 yards. I don't know.

    But, whatever. I'll keep an eye on their season but won't tune in for many games.

    ^ The team I watched yesterday has no chance at the CFP and will not go undefeated in the B1G.

    The better team won. The Hurricanes should focus on improving. Fortunately, we were spared from their stupid celebrations. There's nothing to celebrate. You suck.....

    The Hurricanes are playing The Little Sisters of The Listers of The Poor. It's 69-nuthin.' Big deal.

    Akron vs Ohio State tonight. OSU's QB is sitting out, resting his shoulder due to injury.

    Is OSU going to add another game to the L column?

    (yes, I'm being facetious)

    WMU wins 3rd in a row against defending Mountain West Champ. After the first week disaster against Michigan, this team has got their shit together and are playing really solid ball.
