LOL at Mississippi State. Down 30-24 against LSU, Miss. St. had the ball at the LSU six inch yard line with a minute left and failed to score. That's horrible. Six inches. If you can't move the ball six inches in three tries then you shouldn't be playing football.
Miss St. is getting better though. There were some games last year when they were lucky to get 6 inches all game. They will get a win or two they shouldn't this year.
When all is said and done more is said than done.
Mississippi State's QB would have scored on fourth down if he'd extended the ball even a little, but he kept it tucked. In that situation, there's no difference between being stopped and fumbling, it's worth the risk.
The third-down play was just a great play by the LSU guy, running across the formation and getting a hand on the pass intended for a wide-open receiver.
Not all who wander are lost
Oregon giving Cal a striaght up beatdown. I did a doubletake when I saw the score.
Note to officials, when two guys go to the ground each possessing the ball, it's a simultaneous possession and goes to the offense. When you have a chance to review that, do so and still miss the call I'm dumbfounded.
4 times since 1979 IU has had a chance to win a game in the Big House, each time a bad call at the end either gave Michigan a second chance, or as was the case today took away Indiana's last chance at winning the game.
When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.
The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.
Tebow gets hit hard!
I am pleased.
It wasn't so much the hit as the fact that he got kneed in the head on the way down.
And UK might have wanted to try that about two hours earlier than they did.
I don't know if IU would have went on to win or not but I was furious at that call. Complete BS.Note to officials, when two guys go to the ground each possessing the ball, it's a simultaneous possession and goes to the offense. When you have a chance to review that, do so and still miss the call I'm dumbfounded.
But the Hoosiers need to start scoring TDs in the Red Zone against quality competition if they are to have any hope of a winning season.
The "Pistol" isn't going to be as effective inside the 20 with a slow dropback passer like Ben Chappell, IMO.
Zone reads/option runs by Mitchell Evans, who is doing his best to ensure that Hoosier fans will forget about Kellen Lewis, may be just the tonic for the Red Zone blues.
Does anyone think they will ever change the celebration penalty in college ? Guys in the NFL can do most anything and it is okay. These kids who are playing on scholarship cant hardly do anything.
I am watching the LSU/Georgia game and Georgia is probably going to lose because their guy "glanced" toward the crowd after the go ahead touchdown. Which with them leading by 1, they had a 15 yard penalty on the kickoff. LSU went on to retake the lead.
Now as far as the game itself, it didnt matter to me who won, but overall I wish they would change that penalty as kids get excited after scoring and the refs dont let them doing anything.
They might as well lay the ball down and all walk calmly back to the sideline. Maybe the others here like it. I am just curious how others feel.
