Week 4 Other Games Thread

I thought someone should start a thread since lolUVA and the other Broncos are playing.

Fun fact Bronco is 0-2 in Boise vs the Broncos.

That was actually a good, hard hitting drive by UVA right there. Shocked.

I hope a lot of Broncos are winners tonight and BM ain't one of them.

I am certainly team alotta Broncos tonight. I'm glad Fuente beat the FedEx curse, I have had an irrational disdain for Boise since that game.

Boise state's team speed seems slow. Pursuit to the outside is slow.

Boise State, to me, hasn't looked particularly great this year. So I'm not surprised that this is close.

Boise State looks like they are afraid to open up the playbook?

Another white bronco? The first one didn't go too far.

What is happening?

UVA playing some pretty hardnosed ball thus far. Closing ground quickly on D.

Closing ground on U of R?

Great second effort by the smurfs.

bronco gave em a good gut checkbetween quarters

Shout out to the guy at the game sporting the "Hey UVA, Hokies are everywhere" sign.

Somethings wrong with the universe right now...

Kinda pulling for LOLUVA. Gives them a false sense of hope until we drop 60 on 'em and crush their spirit altogether.

UVA dancing on the sideline is perfect...

Boise is a bit of an enigma. Had a close game with ranked Washington State and really struggled with Troy and New Mexico. And now they are getting smoked at home to LOLuva. I'm halfway convinced they aren't a bowl team this year.

"...When we step on that field, they bleed like we bleed and we're gonna show the world."
-Corey Marshall

I'm 100% convinced they aren't a bowl team this year. How many dropped passes and negative runs can one team really have and still be considered 'good'?

And their defense has been swiss cheese

Boise St is 2-2, and they play in the Mountain West - they will be bowl eligible.

Out of their 8 remaining games SDSU is the only good team they'll play. BYU, Colorado St and Air Force might give them some trouble, and the other 4 teams they should beat handily.

This is why Boise St should never be ranked above 15. EVER

"They are proven. Their field is blue." (I wish I could still find the video that came from...)

No, I *don't* want to go to the SEC. Why do you ask?

We don't love dem Hoos.

I can't decide while watching this game if I would rather have an ACC team win for our conference strength or if I'd just really like to see LOLUVA suck as much as possible.

UVA sucking as much as possible.

I think the ship has sailed on ACC out of conference strength this year, and one game against a G5 team isn't going to change that.

Are these rankings upside down?

Boise State sucks.

Boise actually looks scared of UVA.

via GIPHY

My nine year-old casually looks up from his video game when UVA scored on a long TD run just now and says "Virginia is not good. They are just two bad teams playing each other. They can't beat VT."

Sums it up right there.

Smart kid you got there

This Boise-UVA game is so bad that the last five minutes of commentator chatter has been about potatoes. That says it all.

I'm going to need to see more than 1 good game out of UVA before I start worrying. UVA has one game every season where they play well above the norm and give someone a scare. Louisville last year and Notre Dame sometime recently as well. The only difference here is they may actually get the W.

They're looking pretty good, and Boise looks extremely ineffective.

Where the heck is UVA and who the heck is this team playing in Boise Idaho?

Is it football season yet?

The Smurfs have no offense or defense.

BSU is not good at football tonight.

Did the orange and blue teams switch their uniforms tonight?

On one hand and a half, I'm wondering when LOLUVA decided to look like a football team. Did UConn give them that much confidence?

On the other half hand, I'm kinda glad that Boise's not gonna be getting inordinate amounts of love like they used to.

No, I *don't* want to go to the SEC. Why do you ask?

We don't love dem Hoos.

UVA records against

Boston College - 0-5
Notre Dame - 0-2
Ohio State - 0-1 (with a final of 75-0, bro)
Southern Miss - 0-2
VT - 37-56-5

Of course the Boise St team VT played had a senior QB and plenty of other seniors playing in systems they knew well, good recruiting behind them, a solid coaching staff, etc, etc.

Not the same

I had my "Virginia isn't even a state" jab all queued up, guess I'll change it back to Boise.

-What we do is, if we need that extra push, you know what we do? -Put it up to fully dipped? -Fully dipped. Exactly. It's dork magic.

Really excited about a few games tonight:

-MSU at UGA - Fitzgerald is really exciting at QB, UGA has one of the best Ds in the country. Between the Hedges, Under the Lights.

- pSU at Iowa - whenever you don't expect much from Iowa, they perform, especially at home. They need to keep this game <24 pts. As much as I dislike PSU, saquon is amazing and that little DB we offered from Briar Woods HS is a pretty crafty QB.

UDub at Colorado - nobody talking about the Buffs yet this year, but their D looks solid and their O is fun. Great place for a night game. UDub has been riding high for 15+ games now, time for a letdown?

Corso didn't really do headgear today. So if they come to Blacksburg I guess it won't be 300.

I have no idea why my username is VT_Warthog.

Arkansas blew a 24-0 lead in the Belk Bowl.

lol Tennessee!!!

So,who should I want to win,Pitt or GT??

Hokies.

Probably Pitt. Don't see them contending so an upset of GT would be helpful.

Arkansas blew a 24-0 lead in the Belk Bowl.

UMASS and Tennessee scoreless after the first. Butch is going to be on the hot seat soon.

Soon?

He's been cooking for a while, man

Blackman with a good throw, then a dud. Then maybe another dud. Then a beautiful throw.

Arkansas blew a 24-0 lead in the Belk Bowl.

Austin Allen just took a huge hit in the JerryWorld game. He got leveled by the DT, and the DT's knee ended up at his chin.

His nose is bleeding, he's just trying to keep from bleeding everywhere. They didn't stop the game; just lined up for the next play; drop back pass from the shotgun.

The cameraman follows his motion once he releases the pass, then continues focusing on the QB after the pass goes somewhere downfield.

Didn't even seem weird; the most interesting thing on the field was seeing if Austin was okay after that hit. He looked fine. (The pass was completed, too).

Derwin James just whiffed on a tackle for a 71 Wolfpack TD.

FSU clearly rusty, they might be in some trouble because NC State is good

I'm regretting my Six Pick choice for NCSU-FSU.

No, I *don't* want to go to the SEC. Why do you ask?

We don't love dem Hoos.

Both Tennessee and WVU could lose today... to UMASS and Kansas.... wow

You put those words together, those are my favorite words, Popeyes and bahama

LOL at FSU

So any chance the AP leaves them ranked at 0-2?

Sometimes I like to leave off the /s just to mess with people.

No

"I mean, you know, fuck them, but good for them." -Too Druck to Funk

That's what I want to think, but I don't believe it. They shouldn't be ranked but I won't be surprised if they are somehow.

Miami better watch out. One of the gameday guys picked Toledo to cover.

Definite trap game for the canes, I think it's gonna be close the whole way

Bret Bielema proves he's a much better choker than Kevin Sumlin...and that's saying something

Go TCU and Cal

Clemson sleep walking a little too.

I don't want to get ahead of ourselves, but OKST and USC are losing, Clemson is tied, FSU lost, and Penn State has a good chance of losing tonight

This could get interesting

- Mike Burnup

I wonder if a TCU win over OKST would vault them above us in the polls due to how dominant OKST has been this year before today.

That is what makes CFB so great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

don't want to get ahead of ourselves, but OKST and USC are losing, Clemson is tied, FSU lost, and Penn State has a good chance of losing tonight

This could get interesting

Where is Lawson?!

Miami losing by 3 w 3+ mins left in first half.

Da U is bak!....and losing to Toledo, at home, by 6

"I want to punch people from UVA right in the neck, don't ever come on my show and talk about your football." - Colin Cowherd

Didn't watch the game but just looked at the stat. Toledo ran 50 plays in the first half and converted 10/14 3rd downs. This is not looking good for Miami.....

BC Defense = Good. BC Offense = Loeffler.

That is sickeningly familiar....

Don't sleep on Purdue. They actually have an offense unlike Michigan

If Clemson screws up Gameday, I swear. They play like this in Lane next weekend, they look very beatable.

I hope Clemson wins of course, but I hope it's a close game and the starters have to play it all!

"I want to punch people from UVA right in the neck, don't ever come on my show and talk about your football." - Colin Cowherd

I'm all for the U dropping games (like Galileo dropped the orange) once they get to conference play. But don't eff up our SOS by blowing it today against holy Toledo!

"It's always great to beat UVA, that makes us all smarter and better looking for a couple days".

BC winning would be the worst thing

Coming to Lane, they would be bitter and angry and absolutely KILL us

I swear to God, if Clemson fucking loses...

"I mean, you know, fuck them, but good for them." -Too Druck to Funk

I hate that this week is Clemson's bad week.

"Tyrod, looking desperately, now throws it deep, has a man open, CAUUUGHT! Danny Coale, all the way!"

I have 3 favorite teams. VT, Kentucky, and whoever the hell is playing Tennessee.

Come on, LOLeffler. Give us some bad O.

So just call plays?

As the 3:30 games are heading into the 4th...

#2 Clemson tied with BC
#5 USC tied with Cal
#6 OKST down by 10 to #16 TCU
#8 Michigan down by 3 to Purdue at the half
#12 FSU lost

Andrew Ford threw for 129, a TD, and no interceptions today for UMass, almost beating Tennessee. Good to see him finding some success for himself...even better to see UT sucking.

Bad news, Doeren might keep his job. Good news, Dax got to witness FSU lose.

Meh. Wouldn't be a bad thing if FSU dropped down a notch but with their name it would take a lot of struggles to make a difference. In the meantime I really wanted to improve our chances at getting McNeill.

Joffrey, Cersei, Ilyn Payne, the Hound, Jeff Jagodzinsku, Paul Johnson, Pat Narduzzi.

#9 for Clemson has some serious breakaway speed on that 4th quarter run.

Hey Nadi............you are 0-2!

Where is Lawson?!

Syracuse QB just tried to rip the DBs head off to prevent the pick 6 on the first play against LSU.

Are there any rules against blatant facemask penalties? Like can you get ejected for that shit if it's bad enough?

it it either inadvertent or flagrant face mask.

Where is Lawson?!

Is there an "uber flagrant" that results in disqualification? I can see a facemask yank bad enough to be as dangerous as targeting. Perhaps not, just a question I had. Thanks.

I believe officials have the discretion to eject players based on any actions they find to be excessive. It would have to be flagged as unsportsmanlike conduct though, e.g. anyone throwing a punch or something.

There are also no degrees of facemasking in college (no "inadvertent hands to the face"). It's all the same penalty.

Thanks!

Ameer Speed sighting on the UGa sideline...no need for a shower tonight

I'm thinking Marshall Long isn't playing on scholarship yet, either. He was the punter commit we lost.

Bradburn has been great so far so whatever.

Joffrey, Cersei, Ilyn Payne, the Hound, Jeff Jagodzinsku, Paul Johnson, Pat Narduzzi.

I don't think watching a team winning against Penn State will ever get old. That pick and resulting touchdown by Iowa was glorious.

Yes sir!! GO HAWKS!!! Hoping the D keeps them in the game and their O can use this last TD as a spark for the 2nd half. I was expecting the PSU O to light it up, but so far so good. With Baylor leading OU at the moment and a PSU loss, it's possible that we have a battle of top 10 teams next week.

This is awesome!!!

The Hawkeyes take a lead into halftime with 54 total yards of offense.

Kirk Ferentz is cut from the same cloth as Beamer.

"I mean, you know, fuck them, but good for them." -Too Druck to Funk

UGA is looking like a very sound well coached team. Especially their tackling on defense

Defense is fantastic. Offense has a ton of good backs and solid PA passing structure. A lot like Bama

Baylor currently has the lead on Oklahoma.

It won't last, but nobody saw this coming.

"I mean, you know, fuck them, but good for them." -Too Druck to Funk

That's what the Baylor administration said.

7-5 is the B1Gest halftime score evar

"That kid you're talking to right there, I think he played his nuts off! And you can quote me on that shit!" -Bud Foster

Announcers on ND vs MSU are HORRIBLE.

Fun Fact: Two weeks in a row, Chris Fowler and Herbie will be doing a game that features a player named Joshua Jackson

Syracuse can LSU is actually a good game.

Ive never rooted for Syracuse in any situation ever in my life. But damned if they aren't playing with heart tonight.

"That kid you're talking to right there, I think he played his nuts off! And you can quote me on that shit!" -Bud Foster

Given how LSU has played o thought 23.5 was a little ridiculous for the spread. Syracuse covers easily, even with LSU's last second TD.

Man, it's a shame someone has to win this Florida-UK game. This is some fugly football

You're the only ones that I can talk to about this, you guys.

UK couldn't have screwed the pooch any harder on that one.

Sometimes I like to leave off the /s just to mess with people.

I mean.

Like I said, it's a shame someone had to win, since both teams worked so hard to lose it.

McElwain just gave his on-field interview like he was 3 dark & stormys deep. He looked like he was looking around to see if anyone had a cigarette.

You're the only ones that I can talk to about this, you guys.

Wow. What a finish for PSU-Iowa. Hate to see PSU win though.

"It's a miracle in Blacksburg, TYROD DID IT MIKEY, TYROD DID IT!"

Sneaky good games tonight. I needed a split screen. Nearly wore out my LAST button on the remote bouncing between PSU/Iowa and FL/KY.

AP Poll

Top 4 spots likely staying the same (Bama, Clemson, Oklahoma, PSU).
USC will probably stay at 5, as I don't see anyone being able to jump them right now.
Oklahoma State lost, so will drop from #6. Not sure how far they will go, but probably below us.
Washington (playing now), Michigan (kind of meh), Wisconsin (idle), Ohio State, and Georgia will be #6-10, but maybe not in that order.
FSU lost, and should drop out of the rankings.
TCU could make a big jump from #16 after beating Ok St.

With two teams ahead of us losing and us posting a second shut out of the season, VT should be able to move up at least one spot, regardless of where Ok State and TCU end up.

Most likely, VT ends up 11 or 12. Outside shot at being #10 if Colorado can beat Washington.

*Maybe* Oklahoma drops a spot for playing a close game with a now 0-4 Team. But most of the time winning is enough to hold your position unless someone does something amazing and jumps you. In the top 4 that's a long shot but could happen.

PSU and USC also played close games, so I don't see them jumping.

Based on what we've seen so far this season, I could reasonably put UGA in that territory. ND and MSU wins both look good at the moment.

I could see Georgia jumping up to #6. Michigan was "meh" against Purdue. Ohio State had a blowout, but it was UNLV, so they did what was expected.

If Georgia keeps playing well and USC keeps playing teams close, I could see Georgia jumping them in a couple of weeks.
