End of the Ole Miss/Cal was sufficiently wacky if you did not see it on TV. Ole' Miss made this amazing catch to have a shot to win it and then ran the ball with no timeouts and Andy Reid can tell you how that turned out. Had a shot.

yikes ND

mookieproof, Sunday, 27 October 2019 03:56 (eleven months ago) link

Lyn Bowden Jr. has been really amazing playing QB moving from WR for UK. Losing their starting QB in game 3 and then their backup a game and a half later, pretty much led them to doing their wildcat package as the offense. It has worked pretty well and Bowden has been playing out of his mind.

I'm sure some NFL scouts are going to look at these tapes and figure Bowden could be a nice weapon for some of these NFL matchup passing games.

IU is now 6-2 and bowl eligible this early in the season for the first time in probably a couple decades with their first win ever against Nebraska. It would be pretty hilarious for Harbaugh to get some reprise by beating ND to only turn around and lose to Indiana.

LSU/Alabama was game of the year for me so far.

Ed Orgeron has the best sounding voice in all of American sport. They should get him to do the voice of a frog in a cartoon.

earlnash, Sunday, 10 November 2019 15:06 (ten months ago) link

I do kinda like the whole "we finally made it mama" aspect of college sports when one team finally gets over on another or wins the big game.

You see it in the players all the time, but not as much in the coaches as your pro coaches are either corporate stooges or so cutthroat, they got bodies buried all over NJ swamps.

I would buy Ed Orgeron audiobooks in a heartbeat

poor tua

Mr. Snrub, Sunday, 17 November 2019 02:03 (ten months ago) link

tua will be ok. even if he never takes another snap he will be venerated as a hero by alabama fans forever. they will see to it he gets a nice, soft job somewhere if he wants it. it's the expendable players who permanently ruin their bodies just to get into the rotation on a power-five also-ran team who deserve our pity.

Indiana University ranked in the top #25 for the first time in 25 years. Well at least for a week until they play Michigan next week.

Seahawks 16/1 odds to win Super Bowl, I'm too scared to gamble but that's not a bad bet

jacquees, full of cobras (voodoo chili), Saturday, 30 November 2019 21:37 (nine months ago) link

There was some amazing games today. Alabama and Auburn was really nuts and the IU/Purdue game was really tightrope end.

Lynn Bowden deserves to get some national props and a big tip of the hat to UK offensive coordinator Eddie Grand (& head coach Mark Stoops) for completely re-doing their offense on the fly and moving Bowden a WR/KR into full time Wildcat QB (literally this time). UK went 5-2 with this crazy scheme, including a loss to Tennessee they could have won. In that time, Bowden has run for over 1100 yards and scored 11 TDs on the ground from QB. They had to do this as they lost their two top starting QBs at that point.

I'm sure some pro scouts have been paying attention and curious to see where Bowden is at the combine before the draft. If his 40 time comes out good, I bet he goes up the draft board quite a bit.

earlnash, Sunday, 1 December 2019 03:33 (nine months ago) link

I'm sure FSU is going to back up the bank truck to try to hire Stoops away and I do think he is a good coach, but I kinda hope that he hangs around. UK will probably match the money and he has a shot to build something there that would be unique. Why work in Bobby Bowden's shadow when you can become Bobby Bowden.

earlnash, Sunday, 1 December 2019 03:38 (nine months ago) link

The Iron Bowl was epic. It was delectable to see Saban so angry and helpless. Also, a great showing for the Key & Peele East West Bowl, with JaTarvious "Boobie" Whitlow and Smoke Monday making some great plays.

Jaylen Waddle presumably didn’t pay much attention to the postgame locker room speech from coach.

El Tomboto, Sunday, 1 December 2019 05:37 (nine months ago) link

earlnash doing the lord's work in this thread w/r/t Lynn Bowden: 22 carries for 284 yards and 4 TDs yesterday

i won't delude myself into thinking Kentucky should be a centerpiece of any college football thread, but w/ Smoke, Rose and Rodriguez back next year, plus the return of Terry Wilson, things are looking bright in the LEX. (i'm assuming Bowden will leave after this season, which he should.)

as for non-UK content: as always, anyone but Ohio State, please. I'll be rooting for LSU (and Georgia, if available)

alpine static, Monday, 2 December 2019 06:24 (nine months ago) link

Given the dominance of a handful of perennial powerhouse teams, the only way to inject any real excitement into the college playoffs would be to expand it to at least eight teams, with extra preference given to conference champions. Ideally I'd drop one regular season non-conference game and hold a sixteen team tourney that included all the mid-major champions and more power five at-large seeds.

The only way to make this year's playoffs less exciting would be to replace LSU with Georgia or Alabama. (btw, ty Auburn, well done)

A is for (Aimless), Sunday, 8 December 2019 18:51 (nine months ago) link

16 would be the ideal, but I doubt it would ever happen. I think really 8 would be feasible. They have one more round of games next week after the conference playoffs. Top 4 seeds get a home game. Winners and losers seed into Bowl games with 2 games being the final 4. Same deal on National title game. That would be easy to do. Football is tied to the owners of the Bowls and the power conferences they really have quite a bit of clout in this setup.

I'd think that 'bonus' home game would be tempting.

earlnash, Sunday, 8 December 2019 23:34 (nine months ago) link

I think really 8 would be feasible.

Especially if college athletes can finally start to earn some monetary compensation connected to their athletics.

Thank Mississippi State. They ended Tua's year.

Johnny Fever, Monday, 9 December 2019 17:07 (nine months ago) link

spoken like a true Crimson Tide fan, JF. but thanking Mississippi State for Tua's injury implies that Mississippi State players were personally to blame for his injury, when all they were doing was playing a football game, same as the Tide. I'm pretty sure some players on teams opposing Bama got hurt this year, too. Auburn, otoh, scored more points and won the game.

A is for (Aimless), Monday, 9 December 2019 17:25 (nine months ago) link

It was a tackle in a football game (one he arguably shouldn't have still been playing in), but I place no blame on the Bulldogs players. I'm just saying Tua never made it out of Starkville to make it to Auburn, where the difference would have been significant.

Anyway, I don't care who wins as long as Clemson goes down.

Johnny Fever, Monday, 9 December 2019 17:57 (nine months ago) link

No doubt there are several alternate realities in which the Tide beats Auburn and takes this year's championship. Along with alternate realities in which the Oregon Ducks... but wait, this is getting out of hand.

A is for (Aimless), Monday, 9 December 2019 18:07 (nine months ago) link

every game has a normal probability distribution for (team1_points - team2_points). for alabama or any school with the best players, the distribution is usually shifted +21 or so points with a sigma of 10 or fewer points. so alabama should really be asking that they play each team in a best of 2000 series each week, to be certain the brilliant median score difference shines through for the playoff committee.

or maybe the point of sports isn't to determine which team is better. perhaps the point is to tell stories. stories about a catfish'd linebacker or a coach named Derbis that really likes jesus. or maybe a catfish'd linebacker who also really likes jesus. maybe this is the point of sports.
