After the first 4 weeks I’m going to need about 24 teams in the playoffs

I have no idea how Notre Dame lost that game lol.

Got too cute with the play calling. OSU got cute with theirs too with that stupid jet sweep on 4th and 1.


Side note: I flew to Dallas yesterday and Jim Knowles was on the flight, less than 12 hours from the end of the game.

I think I was the only one who recognized him.

Dude looked exhausted

Not even counting that. In the last 3 minutes, any of these don't happen, ND wins (or likely wins). 

  1. Don't have the miscommunication on 1st down/sack/TFL - whatever you wanna call it (likely win)
  2. Catch the screen/run the ball on 2nd down after ^^^^ play above (likely win)
  3. OSU WR runs OB backwards -- clock incorrectly stopped (likely win)
  4. ND LB drops the INT (win)
  5. 4th and 7 (win)
  6. 3rd and 19 (likely win)
  7. Play 11 men on 4th and goal (likely win)

Miami’s blunder was bad. What was worse was Mario Christobol’s blame shifting. Instead of saying “It’s on me”, the response any leader gives, he claims there’s no excuse and that “perhaps I should have stepped in (to overrule the decision to not take a knee)”.


What a weak-ass response.  If I worked on his stuff, I’d be really questioning whether I want to stay with a guy like that.

Let’s recap the Miami (FL) loss yesterday. They were winning by three and could have kneeled to a victory. It was third down with less than 40 seconds left and GT didn’t have any timeouts left. They just had to kneel and that was the game. Instead, they hand off for some reason and fumble. Okay, that’s bad but now GT has the ball with 26 seconds and no timeouts in their own territory. A few plays later they throw a touchdown pass as the receiver gets behind the defense to score and win.

Also, was it a fumble? I didn’t really see a good replay that showed it was

Michigan caught some guff early on for letting teams hang around, but have now outscored their 3 Big 10 opponents 128-24. 

Fleck had some comments raving about this Michigan team. 

If Michigan can pull one out in Happy Valley - I think they take care of OSU at home and head to their third straight CFP.

No excuse for any of that mess. Kneel it down 100/100 in that situation…..but worse (somehow) is letting guys get deep on you when literally that is the only thing you aren’t allowing to happen.

Coach should lose a week’s pay and player should lose NIL money for a week.

Coach Prime gonna trademark “blew a 29 point lead to lose at home to Stanford”?

The decision making in this Oregon @ Washington game has been a little wild. Entertaining game, though.

Solid game

Cool venue…..stands very tight to the field.

A ways to go to sort out the top 4 this year.
