    I firmly believe that making us picking Maryland/Rutgers means there should have been at least two sickos games of the week.

    My entire rationale for including that was basically "oh hey, they're the two teams the Big Ten invited to get the Washington, DC and New York City DMAs and they're playing on Thanksgiving weekend, so..."

    If you're wondering why I spent absolutely zero space talking about the actual football game that UCF will be playing on Friday against Temple Terrace Univ - I mean, USF - it's because sometimes real life events have a better potential for disparaging your rival.

    Plus, a cadre of dedicated USF fans (yes, no one is more surprised than me that they have those) continue to stubbornly insist that Brett McMurphy's reporting on Genshaft blocking UCF is based on conjecture and hearsay, which does nothing to detract from the fact that it's really funny how things turned out for both schools anyway, and I think it's important that we advocate for truth in all things.

    Also: UCF's going to kick their asses, and that's a much shorter story than "Local University President torches entire athletic department's future prospects in a fit of pique."

    Picking Rutgers here was probably the easiest pick for me

    I *think* they’re #3 in raw sp+, they’re not just a resume (read: undefeated vs cupcakes)* squad, Bill Connelly’s algos might have them favored vs Bama

    Fuck, the Tuscaloosa sports beat reporter, Cecil Hurt, died yesterday. He was only 62. Followed him actively since I was in college. He was still completely plugged in to all of their sports stuff, really good guy.

    I have heard that Finebaum -fucking Finebaum - was in tears or close to crying during his entire show yesterday.

    It shows how much of an impact Cecil Hurt had, and how beloved he was

    Not to turn this into an Alabama thread, but I thought this section of Saban’s radio show was a pretty good summation of toxic fandom and the need to shut the fuck up, maybe. He’s being specific to Alabama fans but is pretty universal when a program has sustained success.

    We really were, too. I was in school for the Shula years, and grew up in the wastes after the 92 championship. It was…a bad time.

    Word. As I've advised people, posting on the forums is a valid backup if the form doesn't got through for whatever reason. Also, tomorrow games will start at noon Eastern.

    I think Iowa got fucked there, that looked like a catch to me. Now we have a young qb in his first start running a play from the 1 and that makes me just a bit nervous

    Is anyone surprised that Nebraska is kicking Iowa’s ass so far?

  • MulletudeMulletude Registered User regular
    Smothers managing the offense well so far. He was the big question mark for me. A little luck on that lost Iowa fumble as well because they were hammering it down the field.

    I really did intend for the “so far” to do all the lifting for that post

    I mean, is anyone surprised that Nebraska is going to turn a is-the-better-team performance into a 1-score loss?

    Could really have gone either way but Nebraska's suck was just too powerful for even Iowa to overcome lol

    1-7 in conference
    -1 point differential

    3-9 with I think a +62 differential on the season

    Every loss on the season was a 1-score loss
