CFB Weekend, Sept. 24-25

Weekend started with a dog (Miami-Pitt) but we've got a good one brewing down in Dallas between TCU and SMU. Halftime and the Mustangs are hanging in there down only 14-10. Anyone else watching?

Just got back from class. Watched Josh Tomlin close out his complete game (Go Tribe!), and flipped to the game. Love to see the upset. Auburn/ SC should be pretty good. I think I like that Newton kid. I'll probably watch Boise/ Org St., but not a whole lot else I'm excited for.

Interested in the SC Auburn game, see if Stevie boy has them legit yet, doubt it.

Big game for ND & Kelly, if Stanford rolls them he's gonna get some heat.

Worst QB of a June Jones team I've ever seen. Where's Colt Brennan or Timmy Chang when you need one?

TCU just took control after SMU pissed themselves.

For the weekend I'm looking forward to Alabama/Arkansas, think Oklahoma might get a struggle from UC in Paul Brown Stadium, watching Luck against ND, falling asleep to Oregon v. Az State on FSN late night.

The kid for SMU has Ken O'Brien disease. Just holds onto the ball way too long.

I want to see how WVU does under the lights at LSU. Big East could really use a win in that one.

Of course I have to ref a god damn hockey game at 4:30 so I miss Bama-Ark. That SC/AUB game should be a gem. I'll have bets on Air Force, Idaho, Nevada, and probably Oregon, so those will be of interest.

NC State and GA Tech might be an interesting one for the early games.

I'm kinda wondering if the Buckeye's cover the spread myself. If EMU scores on special teams I will be pissed. I want to see a goose egg by their score at the end of the game as well.

The last number I saw on the OSU game was 42.5. I actually really like the Bucks -42 in this one. I wouldn't normally bet a game with that kind of line, but I just don't see how EMU scores (at all) and I think OSU's 3rd team O-Line will open big enough holes for Berry and Hall. I think the 3rd team could put up 21 running out the clock in the 2nd half.

Make no mistake about it, this EMU team is the worst opponent I have EVER seen OSU play. That includes 1AA teams. I think (with 100% seriousness) that Mount Union could and would actually beat this EMU team.

FWIW, I will be watching scUM vs. BGSU. I wonder if BGSU can represent the MAC well today.

I thought the same thing about Kent last week. And then Keith shit the bed. I don't think the MAC schools have the horses up front, on either side of the ball, to hang with the B10.

He landed really hard on it after a run down the sideline. Might just be a deep bruise.

BGSU looks like fucking shit. scUM must be back... what are the odds that a team could be 4-0 to start the year and then finish in the cellar of the B10? There is no way that could happen (again). In all seriousness, the scUM offense is going to put up some points this year. I wonder if they defense will get off the field enough for them to win more than one conference game.

There star wide reciever, starting quarterback, backup quarterback and all three runningbacks are all injured.

They are now right now starting a wide reciever at RB.

Purdue is the Cleveland Browns of the Big Ten, in, every. single. way.

Oregon St. is a pretty crappy team. BSU looks decent though (not top 5, probably not top 10). Lot's of boneheaded OSU plays.

lesson to be learned to be learned for all coaches and players on that huge run, get your ass to the los and run your next play. IMO dude was out of bounds, but it only takes them back 5 yards......minute later score so moot point.
