    Actually, this year it wasn't as bad as years past...Washington, Louisville, WVA, Texas Tech...I know there are dogs in there too, but these games aren't bad for opening weekend.

    Big 10 doesn't have much room to talk....just Michigan and Maryland?

    Michigan fans are the worst on twitter. Notre Dame went full Jim Tressel in the 4th, Shea Patterson didn’t look spectacular and may get killed this year with that offensive line yet they act as if it’s no big deal. Vanilla offenses don’t work in college as they do in the NFL

    Spock said something about SEC.  I said something about Big 10.  Why are you getting your panties in a bunch?

    Love how espn ran a piece on Francois on FSU, but left out his domestic violence case because “no charges were filed or arrests made” 

    yet..

    If you don't like it, then you're probably a racist.

    I think VT looks good (up against FSU, at least)

    I've actually been impressed with FSU, though.  Some shit breaks.  Should have scored TD, but not reviewed.  Blocked punt TD, then immediately an INT after.  Everything has gone VT's way.

    Texas looks awful. Not sure if BG can beat this Maryland team next week, they have loads of speed

    Texas. Woof. That team needs a QB in the worst way.


    I was at the game at Fedex and noticed a few things. 

    Nothing changed from last year's Maryland win at Austin. Maryland's oline and dline were just as good if not better in spots than Texas. Texas Qb has a lot of work to do, but other than the one great throw and catch, the Texas WR were not that good. Also, Texas does not have any sort of a kicking game. The punter just straight sucks. 

    The crowd was a majority Texas fans, which is sad, but such is the state of Maryland football. The fact the Skins logo was still on the 50 yard line was a joke. The game should have been in College Park, but Maryland wanted the cash I guess. 

    Maryland has some speed on the outside, the freshmen WR and RBs are not bad. If the Terps can keep the QB healthy, they are not an easy out for anyone in the Big Ten. 

    That said, if I am a Texas fan, I am straight pissed as it appears they still have a loooong way to go. Herman needs more fairy dust. 

    My buddy and I were talking to a bunch of Texas fans at the game, and the fact that Maryland recruits lineman for the Big Ten is a fact we brought up time after time. You could just see the Maryland linemen were just as big as the Texas ones. We joked, you may be able to have bad lines in the Big 12 where there is no defense, but that does not fly in the Big Ten East.

    Classy always trying to pimp his irrelevant teams in every discussion is the gift that keeps on giving.

    I swear, dabo Sweeney gets so many of those lucky breaks like what just happened. Of fucking course he fumbles it through the end zone and it couldn’t have been overturned.

    He may have the best karma going in sports, outside of GSW
